With (rich) rounded aromas of ripe Asian pear, citrus and perfumed honeysuckle, our Split Rock is intensely fruit-driven yet fresh and impeccably balanced. Green apple and lemon flavors mingle mid-palate with light butter and hazelnut, while a crisp acidity keeps everything in perfect harmony for a luxurious finish.
Our 2011 Pinot revels in complexity and finesse. Intense, with an alluring combination of smoked meat edge aroma alongside dried berry and cedar, blended elegantly together with a persistent thread of fresh earth notes.
Fruit prominent and straightforward, our 2010 Pinot benefits from a brisk acidity yet still feels like pure silk and satin in the mouth. Vastly rich in raspberry and cherry jam, gingersnap cookie, sweet oak and exotic spice flavors you won't be able to resist the sultry finish on this one.
With a crisp, elegant texture that hints at Burgundy, there are expansive layers of aroma and flavor to savor here: Green apple, pear and stone fruit are woven seamlessly with a hint of toasty oak that will surely convert even “non-Chard” drinkers as well.
The incredibly cool vintage of 2010 enables this Chardonnay to embody a heady, yet perfect split “ying yang” personality. The chilly temperatures on the west side of Sonoma Mountain played perfectly into our hand, allowing us to preserve a natural acidity with a healthy Gratnny-Smith bite.
