2013 Waypoint Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville
Hillside Oakville fruit is responsible for some of the most iconic wines of Napa: Phelps Backus and Screaming Eagle are two legends from the same neighborhood as our Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, expertly farmed to organic standards by Phil Coturri. This is lush and opulent, brimming with juicy cassis liqueur and boysenberries. Brilliant!

2013 Waypoint Tierra Buena Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain
"Waypoint's Tierra Buena Cabernet is the Bomb. From a prime hillside site on Spring Mountain, this is earthy and rich, and hits all the right notes. Did I mention it's a 2013?"- Walter Hamlin, Wine Scout
We sourced the fruit for the Tierra Buena Cabernet Sauvignon from a historic vineyard on Spring Mountain, first planted in the 1880s. This is the “good earth” at its finest. Grown mostly at 1,100 feet, this sun-drenched hillside above the fog line is the perfect home for fruit that develops supreme concentration and exquisite tannins. Bold, structured like the proverbial brick shelter, this oozes class and blackcurrant fruit to spare.

2013 Waypoint Somerston Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Somerston Estate is a beautiful valley unto itself on Sage Canyon Road, between Lake Hennessey and Lake Berryessa, northeast of Rutherford and Pritchard Hill. Our Somerston Cabernet Sauvignon is gently structured with dusty, pleasantly earthy aromas overlaying deep blackberry and black cherry fruit. In 2013 this wine absolutely shines, and will age 15-20 years.

2014 Waypoint Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay, Carneros
When you’re talking about Hudson Ranch in Carneros, it’s hard not to marvel at their client list. This working farm in Carneros, founded in 1981, not only raises cattle, pigs, and a variety of produce, but also sells fruit to some of the biggest names in California wine. Wineries like Arietta, Aubert, Robert Foley Vineyards, Failla, Keplinger, Kistler, and Kongsgaard make great wines from this prime Carneros property in between Napa and Sonoma. Only 12 of Hudson’s 26 clients are allowed to vineyard-designate Hudson on their labels. We’re proud to be part of this elite group.
In 2014, Tim Milos crafted a one big bad perpetrator of a Chardonnay from Hudson fruit. It’s roomy and plump, with notes of pineapple, butter, mango, and pears. It’s very low in acidity and in a dense, sweet-fruited, crowd-pleasing style. Take it from us, folks – this is the Chardonnay most likely to vaporize and leave only a spinning bottle when you turn your back on it at a dinner party.
2013 Waypoint Blue Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir, Carneros
Viticulturist Anne Moller-Racke of Donum and Blue Farm graciously agreed to sell us some prime Pinot fruit from her home estate in Carneros, in a stellar vintage to boot! Four clones went into this one: Swan, 115, 667, and 777. This wine's mineral-flecked flavors of dark red berries, black cherries, violets and raspberries left us amazed, and its plump, satisfying palate impact kept us wanting more. Grab a box of this one!

2013 Waypoint Brittan Vineyard Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
We cast our line in the right waters here. Coursing with energetic Bing cherry, cranberry and pomegranate flavors with a mid-palate energy, we've heard this wine described as "crunchy." You're going to be mighty impressed when you get your lips on the glass. Robert Brittan, formerly of Stag's Leap, is one of the best winemakers working in Oregon right now.

2014 Waypoint King Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir, Fort Ross-Seaview
Ron Sikorski's King Ridge Vineyard is a ways inland from the ocean in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA, and thus the heat makes the wines a little riper and plumper than other luminaries in the appellation like Hirsch and Fort Ross. We love the 2014 Waypoint's brushy, ripe strawberry, china black tea, white pepper, and baking spice scents, overlaying a plush and satisfying palate presence.
