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.

2015 Fantesca Chardonnay

Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Chardonnay is a brilliant golden straw color with enticing aromas of green apple, lemon meringue pie, beeswax and melon. This wine is round and lush across the palate with crisp balanced acidity and a creamy mouthfeel. Flavors mirror the aromas in the apple and citrus families with a delicate touch of complementary French oak. This Chardonnay is both tasty and pure. Enjoy!

2015 King Richard’s Reserve™ Pinot Noir

Winemaker Notes

The 2015 growing season began early and produced a light crop due to the ongoing drought conditions over the past years. Temperatures remained consistent throughout the summer and resulted in an early harvest of small, concentrated grapes that resulted in a lush Pinot Noir.

Aromas of warm berry compote, baking spices and dried herbs leap from the glass. Flavors of macerated cherries join silky tannins and a plush mouthfeel with a lingering dark fruit finish. This wine is the ideal balance of full-bodied elegance.

2014 All Great Things™ “Hope” Red Blend

Overview

Winemaker Heidi Barrett produced a truly remarkable blend for our 2014 bottling of All Great Things. This vintage is called “Hope.” Made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, “Hope” is a testament to Heidi’s winemaking finesse. This vintage is the sixth 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

All Great Things “Hope” is a dark ruby color in the glass. The aromatics are bright with ripe blackberries, black cherry and toasty French oak. The grapes for this red wine come from mountainous vineyards on the eastern side of Napa Valley, in contrast to the western side where Fantesca’s estate vineyards are planted. All Great Things “Hope” is big, bold and ripe. It’s quite delicious with spicy jammy fruit flavors, a touch of vanilla, and compact silky tannins. This wine is nicely balanced and should age well for many years. Enjoy!

2014 Fantesca Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

Our 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color with aromas of red cherry, cranberry, dried herbs and tea. It has a refined style and is seamless across the palate with lovely, chewy textural tannins and tremendous length. Flavors match the aromas in this graceful wine. The ripe fruit and oak strike a perfect balance that leaves you with a delicious impression of Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
