Fodor's Review

Owners Mike and Sandy Davis transformed a ramshackle property into a plush winery whose predominantly Bordeaux-style wines live up to the magnificent setting. In fashioning the couple's haute-rustic appointment-only hospitality center, the celebrated Wine Country architect Howard Backen incorporated cedar, walnut, and other woods. In fine weather, many guests sit on the open-air terrace's huge swinging sofas, enjoying broad valley views while tasting wines by Cary Gott. The winemaker, who counts Ram's Gate and Round Pond among previous clients, makes Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Chardonnay whites, with Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet-heavy blends among the reds. The wines can be paired with small bites by Michael Caldwell, the executive chef. Tastings are by appointment only. Philippe Melka, an elite consultant, crafts two collector-quality wines labeled Phase V, a Cabernet and a Petite Sirah.
