The Bottle

Fantesca produces just 3,000 cases annually. Heidi Barrett makes only one Chardonnay and one Spring Mountain Cabernet — which makes Fantesca’s offerings one-of-a-kind.

2014 Fantesca Chardonnay

Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Chardonnay is a brilliant golden straw color with aromas of crisp green apple, pear tart, lemon zest and a kiss of sweet caramel-like oak. Delicious across the palate, mouth filling, clean flavors that match the aromatics and perfect acid balance. The wine is completely dry yet gives the impression of sweetness from perfectly ripe grapes. Flavors persist in this lush and luxurious delicious Chardonnay. Enjoy!

2014 King Richard’s Reserve™ Pinot Noir

Winemaker Notes

The 2014 growing season got off to an early start, followed by a warm dry summer creating the stage for another very early harvest. Outstanding growing conditions produced a ripe, concentrated, complex and very deep wine.

Aromas of dried spice, tobacco, rose petals and fresh boysenberry envelop the glass of this vintage. The wine is dark and dense, with a velvety texture throughout. Mouth filling soft tannins and plenty of fresh fruit round out this full bodied Pinot.

2013 All Great Things™ “Mercy” Red Blend

Overview

Winemaker Heidi Barrett produced a truly remarkable blend for our 2013 bottling of All Great Things. This vintage is called “Mercy.” Made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, “Mercy” is a testament to Heidi’s winemaking finesse. This vintage is the fifth release in our All Great Things series, inspired by the words of Winston Churchill: “All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”

Winemaker Notes

The 2013 All Great Things is a wine of beautiful depth and perfect ripeness. The aromas are of rich black cherry and currants layered with toasty French oak. Across the palate, this wine is dense and lush with amazing concentration and weight. Chewy ripe tannins present themselves on the palate without being aggressive in any way. Absolutely delicious with great potential for age worthiness.

2013 Fantesca Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

This Estate Cabernet Sauvignon fills the glass with deep garnet hues and luscious aromas of red cherries and blackberry jam. Great ripeness and concentration come from our Spring Mountain estate vineyards. Plush silky tannins flow across the palate. Excellent purity of fruit combines with rich layering and amazing length that allows the opulent flavors to persist for several minutes. The 2013 is a very successful vintage that can be enjoyed upon release, but will likely last for up to 20 years.
