Abundant floral and white fruit aromas jump from the glass; lychee nut, honeysuckle, and peach marmalade. Incredibly rich and textured, with loads of caramelized pear, pineapple and exotic marmalade notes, this sexy beast of a Chardonnay has brilliant delineation and stunning length along with undeniable minerality.
Wine maker notes
The Multi-Single-Vineyards Stanly Ranch Vineyard: The Napa portion of Cherry Tart Chardonnay comes from the famous Stanly Ranch. While Stanly Ranch has gained its notoriety from Pinot Noir, the Chardonnay from The Ranch is classic Napa Carneros fruit: Big, rich & powerful, all of the new oak barrels that Cherry Tart Chardonnay ages in are used on the Stanly Ranch portion, as it balances the power of the fruit beautifully. Oak Meadows Vineyard: The Sonoma County portion comes from the Russian River; specifically Oak Meadows Vineyard. Oak Meadows is one of our perennial favorites; loose gravely soil makes for excellent drainage, with allows the ground to be cool, but not wet. The cool ground combined with the evening fog of the Russian River allows the Chardonnay to get full, ripe flavors with great acidity and balance. Garcia Vineyard: The Garcia vineyard in the Monterey County AVA is located near the Santa Lucia AVA overlooking the Salinas River Valley. The loam soil enables the vines to pick up subsoil minerals that increase flavor complexity. The vineyard’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean contributes to a cool growing site with moderate vineyard temperatures, allowing the grapes to develop full flavor while maintaining delicate floral aromatics.

Cherry Pie is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge, creator of Hundred Acre and Layer Cake Wines. One would think with the myriad winemaking projects that literally take him and his winemaking team around the globe several times each year, that Jayson would be content with his current stable of wines…but he has yearned to make Pinot Noir for years and circumstances finally aligned for him to do just that. Jayson sought out the owners of Stanly Ranch, on the Napa side of the Carneros appellation, as their grapes were becoming well known as some of the most sought after Pinot Noir grapes in California. They told him they would give him a small allocation to make wine, but future allocations would depend on the quality of the wine he made. They had no idea that was just that kind of challenge that puts Jayson at his best. After tasting the 2007 Cherry Pie Pinot Noir from the barrel, and deeming it one of the best ever made from their grapes, the owners of the ranch granted him free rein to choose from the very best blocks of the property for his wine. Needless to say, the allocation of fruit is now whatever he asks for…but the wine still had no name. Then in early 2008 while perusing New York’s Soho District, Jayson happened into the Campton Gallery during its exhibition of paintings by artist, TR Colletta. Colletta’s richly detailed paintings of everyday, distinctly American objects are at once familiar and remarkable, assuming an evocative, sculptural character. His subjects tap into our collective consciousness and become complex metaphors. Jayson was particularly drawn to a compelling oil on canvas of a juicy, mouthwatering, hot-out-of-the-oven cherry pie. He instantly knew this was to be the label and the name for his Pinot Noir still in the barrel - Cherry Pie. Like TR Colletta’s art, Jayson’s art is evocative, complex, textural and fundamentally American. His Cherry Pie Pinot Noirs are dazzling in their rich, layered, sensory excellence and are redolent of the flavors and aromas of something delicious baking in a warm kitchen comforting, inviting and with their rich, dense, dark fruit flavors, as American as well, Cherry Pie.
