Carmody McKnight Estate Wines

1868 visitors

In 1995, the Conways produced their first wine in the cellar of their 130-year old farmhouse, following the planting of grapes in 1985. Carmody McKnight, from its beginning, embraced a personal vision and pursuit of the land and its gifts, not bound by commercial restraints, as exemplified in their hand-crafted, 100% estate blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a one-of-a-kind dessert wine, Kathleen.

2005 Estate Pinot Noir

The most romantic of wines, our estate Pinot Noir is surprisingly opulent, yet elegant and velvety textured, with strawberry and berry-earthy savoriness in its overture. Blackberry ... more and spicy plum vie for attention with black cherry and currant flavors, finishing in a final act of subtle tannins, a trace of toasty oak, and a silkiness that glides seductively over the palate.

2006 Estate Chardonnay
Marian's Vineyard

A big, ripe, and richly fruity 100% Free-run Chardonnay with a concentrated core of perfectly ripened white peach, pear, and fig. Turns elegant and extraordinarily delicate, enhanc ... moreed by a citrus-infused tropical finish. The unwoody “real” Chardonnay is rare in California -- dependent on the synergy of ideal soils and microclimates! Free-run, a major factor behind the fresh, tropical-rich quality, is the pure juice that flows free of the skins and seeds prior to pressing the fruit. Keeping the Free-run separate results in a cleaner, crisper, natural juice to ferment.

Kathleen Estate Late Harvest Cabernet Franc

After dinner will never be the same!

Only one in the world! Its opulent harmony derives from the uniqueness of Cabernet Franc grown in the rare limestone and volcanic soil ... mores of Carmody McKnight Vineyards. Bursting from the glass is a focused flavor of honey-laced raspberry, characteristic of the varietal and superbly magnified in the late harvest. Loads of ripe, lush red fruit round out the experience with undertones of licorice, spice and seductive hints of wildflowers, leaving one to wonder if this is, indeed, the nectar of the Gods.
