sunshine and a foundation of Gloria sandy loam soil. The high elevation, up to 1200 feet, and southern locale of Las Alturas Vineyard is slightly warmer by day and cooler by night with abundant sunshine and less wind than the northern portion of the appellation. All of these favorable conditions work to enhance the phenolic profile of each berry. When planting this vineyard, various Pinot Noir clones and rootstocks were matched to the most fitting soil types and slopes. Yields are deliberately kept low in order to augment the fruit’s intensity.

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "Spares no expense, with lavish smoke and black licorice–scented oak framing a rich core of dark berry, anise, boysenberry and savory herb notes. Full-blown and expressive through a persistent, mouthcoating finish. Drink now through 2024."

Pinot Noirs. Capiaux's Pinots are rich, fruit-driven and generous wines with considerable near and medium-term appeal. Capiaux nailed 2012 - his wines have great depth and richness, but aren't overdone. Even with all of their immediacy, I found these wines improved considerably with air, so I would open them at least an hour or two in advance.

"Blue/blackish fruit, violets, lavender, spices and white flowers all meld together in the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard. Here the flavors are rich, dark and enveloping to the core, with terrific depth and tons of pure intensity."

best suited to each varietal. This one is sourced from specific sites within Monterey.

Displaying a deep garnet color, the enticing bouquet blooms with strawberry and hints of lavender and cherries, followed by a palate of dried cranberry, spice and earth.

The grapes were destemmed, crushed, and fermented in small lots in open top fermenters. To add complexity and retain character, each variety was fermented separately. During the Read More...
blending process just prior to bottling, the proportion of each varietal was chosen to accentuate the richness of flavor and maximize depth, complexity, mouthfeel and finish. The addition of a small amount of Muscat Canelli and Riesling, which are white wine grapes, may seem a little odd but it is actually a common practice in red blends to bring out the mid-palate and enhance the fruitiness.

The 2011 vintage of Gifft Red Blend is comprised of 10 different varietals, blended to showcase the fully-integrated bright fruit character of each component. With aromas of blackberry and ripe plum and loads of black fruit on the palate, it exhibits a smooth, silky mouthfeel on a mediumbodied, soft round frame with a touch of vanilla and sweet oak.

with evening coastal fogs that often linger until mid-morning the following day. This natural cooling effect causes a unique lengthening of the growing season, something that winemakers call “hang time”. Increased hang time leads to more intense flavor development and an enhanced richness of the fruit.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed, chilled, and racked clean to a refrigerated stainless steel tank. The juice was slowly fermented at a cool temperature to accentuate the aromatic fruit components. About half of the blend was aged in stainless steel in order to retain the bright fruit flavors and crisp acidity. The other half was aged on 100% French oak to bring a rich texture, complexity and just a hint of buttery creaminess.

The 2012 vintage of Gifft Chardonnay exhibits richness, depth and complexity, balanced by a lively acidity and an essential freshness. Featuring the gorgeous tropical fruit flavors that are the hallmark of Monterey Chardonnays, Gifft Chardonnay strikes the ideal balance between rich and refreshing.
