  Chardonnay Sonoma County
Our 2003 Chardonnay combines fruit from several cool climate vineyards, bringing depth of fruit and bright acidity to the wine. Winemaker Julia Iantosca puts the wine through 100% malolactic fermentation giving it hints of butter while retaining a ripe fruit impression on the palate. Sur lies aging in 40% new oak results in a wine with a rich, creamy texture and a long, lingering aftertaste. Aromas of pear and grapefruit combine with flavors of toasted hazelnut, resulting in a complex, harmoniously balanced wine.

  Crane Creek Cuvée, Dry Creek Valley
Crane Creek Cuvée is a proprietary blend, crafted from the finest barrels in our cellar. Named for the seasonal creek that flows past the winery, this wine is produced only in the best vintage years. This is the first bottling to include grapes from the winery’s Griffin vineyard. This classic Bordeaux style wine has rich flavors that are the hallmark of grapes grown in the Dry Creek Valley—cassis, cedar and black cherry. Toasty hints of tobacco combine with aromas of clove and nutmeg.
  Merlot Sonoma County
2002 was an ideal vintage in Sonoma County. Moderate weather conditions allowed the grapes to experience a "long hang time" to develop rich flavors and ripe, supple tannins. Merlot is the flagship varietal for Lambert Bridge and winemaker Julia Iantosca has again captured the essence of Lambert Bridge’s signature wine. With this vintage our winemaking focus is shifting to smaller production lots using more concentrated fruit. The resulting wine demonstrates flavors of ripe plum, red berry and spice. While the composition may vary slightly from vintage to vintage, this Bordeaux style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec continues to produce a full-bodied wine with refined tannins and rich, velvety fruit flavors.
  Old Vine Cuvée Bacchi Vineyards
Our 2002 Old Vine Cuvée, Bacchi Vineyard, is an Italian-style field blend consisting of 70% Zinfandel and 30% Petite Sirah. The Bacchi Vineyard is a 98-year-old, dry farmed vineyard located in the Russian River Valley. This robust wine is loaded with luscious berry fruit and lots of spice, giving the wine a nice density and texture. The 2002 Old Vine has briary fruit from the Zinfandel, zesty pepper from the Petite Sirah and a smooth, silky mouth feel.
  Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley
Our 2004 Sauvignon Blanc is 80% barrel fermented and 20% stainless steel fermented, giving this wine its bright fruit. The wine’s aroma is an intriguing combination of ruby grapefruit, sweet grass and pineapple with hints of floral perfume. The forward fruit and zesty acid in this wine make it a perfect accompaniment to such foods as Dungeness crab, oysters on the half shell or Asian and Thai foods.
  Viognier Dry Creek Valley
The 2004 Viognier, Dry Creek Valley has floral, spicy character, rich aromas of jasmine and orange blossom with fruit-forward flavor redolent of peach and honeysuckle. This is our first Dry Creek Valley appellation of Viognier using fruit from the Bevill Vineyard. The rich texture and smooth mouth feel is the result of 100% primary fermentation in neutral oak barrels. A wonderfully crisp wine with fresh allure that is a thirst quenching alternative to Chardonnay in the spring and summer months.
  Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
There are some who believe that the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County is "where God meant Zinfandel to grow." Winemaker Julia Iantosca is one of those people. Using fruit from Dry Creek Valley heritage clones, Julia has crafted a fruit-driven zinfandel with the classic briar and berry qualities typical of zinfandels from this area. The combination of heritage clone selections and old vines provides the flavors, texture and weight that are the hallmark of Dry Creek Valley. To complete the blend, Julia adds in small amounts of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Carignane which enhance the flavor dimension and complexity. Aromas of briary fruit and spice give way to hints of blackberry cobbler. The impression of fruit and spice continues in the mouth. Supple tannins give structure and depth to this satisfying blend. The 2003 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is a versatile wine meant for enjoying at the table. With its forward fruit, soft tannins and lingering finish it will accompany a wide range of dishes and occasions.
