The Central Coast has mild winters, cool summers, off shore breezes derived from the Pacific Ocean it all gets expressed in this full-bodied wine with notes of lemon grass, dried herbs and a mouthwatering finish.
Showcasing a dark garnet color in the glass, our Cabernet Sauvignon boasts alluring amounts of brambly fruit, savory spice and toasted oak on the nose. On the palate, rich flavors of plums and blackberries lead to a pleasant hint of vanilla and spice.
Pure and focused with tangerine flesh, peach skin, subtle white flowers / citrus blossom, saline, chalk, and granite. Focused and nervey from the oldest Pinot Blanc vines (and a few Melon de Bourgogne) in California, with a touch more structure / acid / verve than previous vintages. Bright and dry with wonderful stone-fruit persistence, mouth-cleansing freshness. Fantastic either as a cocktail wine, Summer Sipper, wine for the lake or the ocean (boating), or with all the food listed on the details page!
Granny Smith apple, wet chalk, toasty, savory French oak aromas, hint of browned butter, but the oak treatment is elegant enough to allow a lemon-blossom, floral character to emerge in the wine’s nose.
'Dead to rights' classic Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir: Brambly, peppery bright and ripe cherry fruit is insanely versatile with food. Safe to match with salmon, pork, chicken, lighter beef and game dishes such as tri-tip, quail, venison.
A true classic Paso Robles Cab, fruity, dense and luscious on the attack with viscous and ripe berry flavors, shows great depth of flavor and admirable structure. Pairs well with ribeye or New York Steak grilled over red oak or pecan wood.
Intoxicating, ripe, red and blackberry fruit, and cherry pie leaps from the glass. Framed by hints of bramble, sage and saline minerals. Similar in aroma to a Petite Sirah with those big, ripe berry aromas and tannins dense enough to smell.
Ballard Lane Zinfandel delivers a sense of place and a great expression of the Central Coast. The vineyards produced a medium bodied wine with integrated silky tannins that is aromatically fruit driven as well as on the palate. Flavors and aromatics of cherry, strawberry jam and raspberry with a hint of cracked black pepper.
With enticing aromas of apple blossoms, buttery brioche and white peach, our slightly floral Chardonnay integrates classic oak nuances of vanilla, clove, and hazelnut with a luscious, creamy texture that lingers on the tongue.
