2004 Pinot Noir Balistreri Family Vineyard – Freestone View Block
Sonoma Coast

The 2004 Freestone View Block Pinot Noir displayed its exceptional quality early on with great depth and high extract. As with all wines of great potential, long aging is rewarded ... morewith greater complexity and character. We have chosen to bottle age this a full year prior to release. Upon opening, aromas of dark ripe cherries and blackberries fill the glass. With aeration, provocative lavender and dried rose petals add pleasing depth to the nose. The palate has a richness of flavor and supple mouthfeel highlighted by high natural acidity. We expect this wine to continue its evolution in bottle for 10 years or more. Balistreri Vineyard offers a unique sense of place in delicate balance with its extreme environment, giving us the opportunity to produce a Pinot Noir of truly rare potential.

2004 Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast

This wine will evolve nicely from the long aging period in barrel, during which the delicate nuances of Pinot Noir developed beautifully. Our 2004 Pinot Noir will continue its evol ... moreution in bottle for the next 5–8 years, with the fruit and wood tannins continuing to meld into a silky texture. The rich, complex fruit character was enhanced by the warm late growing season, making this vintage particularly voluptuous but balanced nicely by naturally high acidity.

2004 Syrah
Sonoma Coast

Two vineyards give distinctive characteristics to the final blend that synergistically meld into a complexity, depth, and richness that is unusual for Syrah. Hummingbird Hill fruit ... more provides ripe blackberry flavor and a viscous mouth feel, while Clary Ranch Vineyard fruit provides low pH (3.39), white pepper, a blueberry component and overall finesse. Elements of this wine remind us of the cold northern Rhône region of France, yet it has a fullness and elegance that says California. This duplicity is what makes wines from the Sonoma Coast so unique.

2005 Chardonnay
Sonoma Coast

Chardonnay has, for me, always been about its food pairing qualities and our
2005 is a strong statement in that regard. This wine displays refreshing acidity
combined ... more in great proportion with full extraction and richness that is complete on
the palate. The taste profile is evolving a crème brûlée richness in the framework
of a silky acid matrix. Fresh pear, mango and zesty lemon set the tone for fruit.
The aging potential for this wine is outstanding as all the elements of balance and
structure are in harmony.

2006 Sauvignon Blanc Hummingbird Hill Vineyards
Sonoma Coast

This is an ideal aperitif wine, balanced and complex, with fig, pear and tropical fruit flavors. Our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc will complement a myriad of food pairings including grille ... mored fish and fresh seafood, particularly oysters, crab, and lobster, grilled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. The inspiration for this wine comes in part from our admiration for New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. The high acidity and low pH of these wines have found their way to Hummingbird Hill Vineyards and marry nicely with the lush fruit profile that is frequently found in Sauvignon Blancs from the Russian River. Our Sauvignon Blanc offers characteristics often found in one or the other but seldom in both. With that idea in mind, we present: “New Zealand meets Russian River on the Sonoma Coast.”

Fruity and crisp with a touch of sweetness. Bright floral aromas and flavors of melon and Asian pear. Excellent wine for pre meal sipping, with spicy foods, or as a warm afternoon refresher.
