Limited Inventory: Please contact us to order, or call the tasting room: 707-921-2809.

Our 2011 The Novelist, starts with lemon, honey dew melon, fig and quince that jump out in the nose. Bright fresh citrus flavors are accented by a mid-palate richness. Limestone, spice and a minerality anchors the structure of this zesty and expansive wine with a long finish. Expect this wine to age like a red wine for at least a decade in proper storage conditions.

Winemaker Notes: Each lot was handpicked, crushed and pressed into tank for juice settling. From there it was racked off of the solids and then barrel fermented in French oak barrels in our cold rooms. Aged for one year prior to blending and bottling.

The first release of The Novelist in 1982, was inspired by the great and rare white wines from Bordeaux such as Haut Brion Blanc and Chateau Carbonnieux. Our white meritage predates the official formation of the Meritage Association, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
