Routestock Vineyards Flight
We hope you will join us at 4:00 on Saturday, May 22nd, for our tasting of the wines of Routestock Vineyards with winemaker Vance Rose. At the core of RouteStock is their commitment to sourcing great fruit from high-end vineyards along well-known routes in the Napa Valley. They partner with a select group of dedicated grape-growers in the best viticultural areas for each of their varietals: Napa Valley for Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, Carneros for Chardonnay, and the Sonoma Coast for Pinot Noir. Like every aspect of RouteStock, these appellations were individually selected with care to put each varietal at the greatest advantage and make the best possible wines while also showcasing their uniqueness.

We are excited to share these three wines with you, in this order:
2019 Routestock Chardonnay, $15.99
A dry and refreshing wine that still holds weight, this 100% Chardonnay bottling is derived from two vineyard sites, one in Napa and one on the Sonoma side of the cool Carneros regions, using two different clones (Wente and Dijon 77). Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves youthful brightnes, while seven months of aging in mostly used French oak allow it to soften, rounding out this lovely expression of an iconic terroir.

2018 Routestock Pinot Noir, $19.99
Since 2017, the three clones for this bottling (Pommard, 667, and 777) have been sourced from two specific vineyards; one about 1.5 miles from the coast in northwest Sonoma County and the other in the southern part of the appellation near the Petaluma Gap AVA. It is an exploration of the best of California Pinot.

2017 Routestock Cabernet Sauvignon, $19.99
Hailing from the cooler Yountville region, the warmer St. Helena, the mountainous Mount Veeder and the valley floor Rutherford, the fruit sourced for this bottling produces a bright and complex blend that reflects all the best elements of Napa. It is finished with small percentages of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot to deliver the best complexity and balance.
