The 2016 CIX Estate Chardonnay is rapturous. It takes hold of your senses with captivating aromas of citrus blossom, powdered stone and ripe pear. On the palate it is both dense and weightless. The fruit character is nuanced and multi-dimensional with stone fruits, brioche and candied citrus. The CIX finishes pure and long, which confirms this wine will age gracefully for 15+ years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Wine AdvocateMedium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir CIX Vineyard bursts forth with baked cherries, red currant jelly and mulberries with touches of cinnamon stick, violets, baking spices and potpourri. Full-bodied, opulent and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it has a solid frame of firm and grainy tannins with a seamless acid line and a very long, decadent finish. This wine was bottled in June 2017.

Wine SpectatorOffers a long embrace of oak, with subtle toast amid the taut green apple, fig and melon flavors, easing on the finish. Drink now through 2021.
