Wines

Situated only 37 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the western slope of Potter Valley, where our vineyards are located, benefits from obliging cool ocean breezes. This fortunate climate allows our grapes to hang longer on the vine, resulting in perfectly ripened fruit leading to wines which represent each grape varietal superbly.

2014 Kimmel Chardonnay

A wonderfully balanced Chardonnay like previous wines produced from our Middle Block vines but aged in less French oak to allow the fruit flavors to show. Soft on the tongue but with just enough tannin to give the wine body. All the great apple, pear, and citrus flavors. No faults in this wine.

2013 Kimmel Cabernet Franc

This Cabernet is our second bottling after the 2010 Cabernet Franc. The wine was crushed and fermented in stainless tanks and allowed to go through its second fermentation before being racked off into neutral oak barrels. Using basically no oak before bottling it retains all it's natural flavors unmasked by wood. A style that we may go to in the future. Called the 'Father" of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is terrific now for those wanting "un-blended" excellence. It is 100% joy."

2013 Kimmel Merlot

Just when you thought the 2012 Merlot was good, along comes the 2013. The weather was warm and dry in 2013 helping to produce an even size grape cluster with intense fruit flavors. Great balance of tannin from the stems and French oak barrels enhancing the red and black berry profile of tastes. Fun to see how this evolves. But caution...don't need to wait.
