2016 Macauley Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay
From the region's iconic Chardonnay grower comes a fresh 2016 with notes of lemon, light marshmallow and trailing wafts of honey. The mouth shows layers of fruit cocktail, melon and citrus fruit. Another crisp and stunning Chard from the vines that put California on the map.
2015 Macauley 'Old Vine' Zinfandel
Hailing from primarily century old vines off two cherised vineyard sites in both Calistoga and St. Helena, our 'Old Vine' Zinfandel expresses layer upon layer of blackberry jampreserves, strawberry compote and a touch of black pepper. This Zin sings on the palate with more expressive dark fruit and a nice touch of tannin from the small addition of Petite Sirah. The finish stretches very nicely for this varietal in somewhat of a short growing season. A wine that pairs with more than it doesn't, drink now and over the course of the next 10 years.
