The Outlot Collection
Explore the collection
Off the beaten track, down quiet country lanes, and along steep river banks we find treasures in isolated vineyard blocks with solitary microclimates where site expression is enhanced. Alive with scents of caper, nettle and fresh basil the Sauvignon Blanc dances on the palate to a riot of tropical, citrus and melon fruits. Opulent guava and lychee fruit entwine with oyster shell flintiness for a crisp, cleansing finish.
Across country bridges, over railroad crossings, winding through canyons and far-out parcels we find small Chardonnay vineyard gems. The fruit from these outlying sites reflects a strong sense of place, of Sonoma. The wine’s pearlescent hue leads to fleshy peach and apricot fruit on the palate laced with aromas of acacia blossom. Barrel fermentation adds supple texture and a pleasant contrast to the inherent minerality of the grapes. Notes of ginger and pear with a kiss of vanilla round-out the finish.
Alexander Valley, Sonoma County
Out of bounds, beyond the pavement, and out of plain sight, our Alexander Valley vineyards are cached in the most picturesque and pioneering of places. Black currant and cherry fruit abound and reveal a muscular but supple structure that embodies the depth and richness of Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The generous palate offers savory spice and a waft of lavender to complement the abundant fruit while oak barrel aging contributes a gentle, creamy finish.
