Tasting Notes

Our stunning 2011 Birdsong, named after a lovely Cherokee princess who just happened to be Donnis’ great-great grandmother, is truly a “vision in white.”

Like the previous vintages, the grapes for this beauty were grown in small vineyards near Ukiah, in an area highly regarded for its white wine grapes. Because the 2011 growing season got a late start and was hammered by rains that hindered fruit set, the yield from these vineyards was down from the previous year—but the fruit we did get was of highest quality.

The Viognier component of the blend lends a heady nose of exotic honeysuckle, which also dominates the flavor profile. The Chardonnay rounds out the silky texture with notes of tropical fruits, and the small amount of delicate Orange Muscat imparts a hint of citrus on the palate and orange blossom in the bouquet. This is a bright wine with a beautiful straw hue that pairs beautifully with spicy foods—and goes down really nice as a sipping wine or aperitif.

“…These enviably pure cabernets are not burdened down with huge tannin and will not whack the taster over his head in terms of power or intensity. Rather, they are beautifully balanced and elegant…”
