Stony Hill tasting terrace

2017 Stony Hill Chardonnay (SRP: $54)

Widely considered the first California ‘cult wine,’ Stony Hill Chardonnay is one of the most respected and highly-sought-after wines in California. The style is best described as lean, bright, elegant and food-friendly; the wine is fermented and aged in neutral oak, which allows the wine to develop without absorbing big, oaky flavors. The 2017 vintage is light gold in color with intense and mineral aromas, mixing oyster shell, honeysuckle, and citrus. On the palate it is fresh and vibrant with notes of grilled almond and pear, playing along with spices, limestone, stone-fruit and green apple. The finish is long and will continue to develop with 8-10 years of cellaring.

2017 EnRoute ‘Les Pommiers’ Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (SRP: $60) 

Established in 2007 by Far Niente, EnRoute is the culmination of a more than 40-year passion for Pinot. The winery’s acquisitions of some of the Russian River Valley’s most pedigreed vineyards have resulted in focused, textured, and graceful Pinot Noirs. The flagship Pinot Noir, Les Pommiers, is comprised of several of these iconic vineyard sites, culminating in a pure expression of both varietal and terroir, which means you really are giving dad the best of the best for Father’s Day.
