Our well-known Jumping Goat vineyard located in the AVA of St. Helena is one of the standout wines in our portfolio.  A dense inky purple color with notes of dark cherry and chocolate, with nuances of violet and lavender alongside great minerality.  This rich Cabernet is silky and elegant with incredible amounts of texture and energy in the wine.

2016 Métisse Napa

Our well-known Jumping Goat vineyard located in the AVA of St. Helena was harvested later in 2016 than the previous year.  A beautiful growing season yielded spectacular quality.  The wine aromatically boasts lush, bright raspberry fruit along with cloves, crushed rock and its signature perfumed characters.

2017 Métisse Napa

Our Estate vineyard located adjacent to the winery in the AVA of Saint Helena is a two-acre parcel with vines dating over 30 years. Soils are rich with obsidian and loam which is quite evident in the aromatics of this wine.  A deep garnet purple color with black currant, boysenberry, hints of cured meats, gravel and loamy earth.  It is a powerful wine with firm, grainy tannins but still maintains its freshness.  Ripe and well balanced, full bodied with a huge finish, this wine will age beautifully.

This one acre planting of Chardonnay on our high elevation vineyard is truly beginning to produce a wine that can rival some of the most established Chardonnay producers.  Planted in 2012 on the southwest slope of the property, the vines only yield two tons of fruit.  Aromatics that leap from the glass of banana, honeysuckle, vanilla, with a creamy nose and a subtle . . .
