Our Banshee Single Vineyard Designate Wines consist of our limited production, small lot, handcrafted Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the Sonoma Coast.
This genie in a bottle will bewitch your palate. The Heintz Chardonnay smells like a freshly blended tropical smoothie of coconut, mango, and papaya with a hint of lime. A soft and creamy texture at first sip leads to flavors of lemon bars, flaky pie crust and kiwi then finishes tart and zesty with a hint of fresh pastry lingering at the end. A truly magical being!
We picture this Pinot Noir being popped open by hobbits as they enjoy a humble beef stew or rich beef bourguignon. Delicate aromatics reminiscent of fall and crisp, crunchy dried maple leaves lead to soft raspberry flavors, autumnal spices and a hint of nutty peanut butter with a tartness on the finish. If you can resist, stash away “my precious”.
Our Grenache was whole-cluster pressed to promote the spicy framboise notes found in great Grenache. Have it on the back deck while grilling with friends this spring or summer.
