Hello & Happy Fall/Winter from Selene!
There always seems to be challenges at harvest, but this year was something else, with all the fires. We appreciate all who checked in on us. It was touch and go but both our home and our winemaking facility survived the fire. For that we’re very grateful, but still so saddened by how many friends and neighbors have lost so much. Thoughts and prayers are with all our friends and family in Southern California. Stay safe.
We have two new releases:
2015 Selene Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyards (100% Sauvignon Blanc Musque selection, 381 cases)
Miaâ€™s tasting notes: Bosc pear, vanilla crÃ¨me anglais, green tiger fig, Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, and chrysanthemum. All of these aromatics translate very well on the palate. The flavor concentration has a wonderful intensity and impact in the mouth, with that just right balance between rich viscosity and good acidity.
2014 Selene Merlot Frediani Vineyard (100% Merlot, 302 cases)
Miaâ€™s tasting notes: Violets, raspberry jam, dark plum, fresh blackberry and blackberry leaf; molasses and caramel, fresh tobacco and sandalwood. In the mouth the flavors have very good impact, intensity, and length; the texture has some chewy density to carry the flavors from initial impact through the finish.
Also remember, the Chesler is BACK!! Mia found a new block of Cabernet Franc at Frediani Vineyard that she secured for the 2014 vintage of Chesler and itâ€™s beautiful. Itâ€™s been hard to keep her hands off of it.
2014 Chesler Cabernet Franc Napa Valley (78% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, 267 cases)
Miaâ€™s tasting notes: Raspberry, dark chocolate, exotic spice, city roast coffee bean, sweet pipe tobacco, toasted vanilla, buttery cinnamon toast. High-tone and dark, deep flavors marry nicely for a wonderful, mouth-watering feel with a super long finish.
Finally, we still have some 2013 Merlot, which is pop and pour yummy, and some Library Merlot youâ€™ll find for sale on the website along with some Library Chesler.
