Cupcake Vineyards Chardonnay– what the winemaker said – wines reminiscent of cupcakes like when you were a kid, like gourmet cupcakes bit more complex, want to accentuate the fruit, cool fermentation then malolactic fermentation, 100% american oak, 6 to 8 months. Kanzler vineyards Pinot noir – barrel sample wine, winery based in Sebastopol, cool climate, foggy nites, cool morning, sunny afternoon, fruit hangs along time, til halloween.
