Great wine has a strong sense of place and place is informed not just by the earth, but by the people who inhabit it and the culture they nurture within it. We believe deeply in family and friendship. We believe great wine shows well with good food, sings with good company, and soars in an environment of generosity and warmth. From our 14-acre vineyard in the Napa Valley, we strive to grow and make great wines that foster our values of family and friendship.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Ellman Estate). Our 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a tiny barrel selection of the finest fruit from our vineyard. With an intense, deep ruby hue, the 2016 exudes complex aromatics harkening the spectrum from cassis bud, orange peel and cerise to salumi—such as Lardo di Colonnata and Finocchinona. Balancing its truly refined nature with extreme power, the palate gives way to a myriad of fruit and floral notes from cherries and blackberries to hibiscus and violet, balanced with hints of cigar box, savory licorice and dried sage, and replete with mouth-coating tannins and a lengthy finish. This wine is incredibly focused; it can be enjoyed now, and possesses an age-worthy character to be enjoyed for years to come. Magnum and 3L formats available. 95 cases produced

60% Sangiacomo Family Roberts Road Vineyard, 40% Catie’s Corner Vineyard.  The 2016 Alexis Skye Pinot Noir marries the two unique expressions of the vineyard sources seamlessly. The long, slow growing season of the Sangiacomo Family Roberts Road vineyard in the Petaluma Gap imparts deep, dark flavors, while the Catie’s Corner vineyard in Russian River Valley has a lightness of being that’s impeccable. With a deep ruby hue, the nose is replete with fruits ranging from red to black—dried cranberries, raspberries and dark cherries, as well as subtle floral notes of violets and wizened rose petals. Upon further observation, images of a hillside picnic with house-made soppressata and strawberry pie leap to mind. The palate is expansive with notes of blackberries, rosemary and cigar box, finishing with incredible focus and intensity, yeta broad palate weight.  240 cases produced
