2008 marks our first full vintage of creating Drake wines, calling on seventeen years of patient survey to create a liquid treatise of premeditated enjoyment. All lots are blended and bottled using the four best barrels (95 cases) from each unique vineyard block. The Viognier from Siletto Ranch in San Benito ($27) was released in June 2009, and continues to please with its rich entry and spicy, flinty finish. Our "Les Galets" Pinot Noir ($48) from the rocky slopes of Laetitia vineyard was recently released in late 2010, and sings with vibrant red fruits over a mineral backbone. The H and N Block Pinot Noirs from the Bien Nacido Vineyard ($48) exude transparency to adjacent sites, as owned rooted, heritage plantings of the Pommard clone bring unique shades of spice, tension, and perfumed aromatics. Finally, our I Block Chardonnay ($32) from the original Bien Nacido Vineyard plantings of clone 4, released in spring of 2010, with its lemon and banana crème characters balanced with richness and crisp acidity.
