  • A honeyed dessert wine loaded with exotic flavors and aromas of peach, pineapple and passion fruit.
  • The Alexander Valley vineyard where our Semillon grapes are grown is cultivated exclusively for late harvest wines.

When Semillon grapes are left on the vine beyond the ordinary ripening period they are susceptible to Botrytis Cinerea, also known as "noble rot." This rather unpleasant sounding condition is the key to making this sweet dessert wine, as it is rot that causes the grapes to shrivel and turn into raisins.

Our Late Harvest Semillon is grown in central Alexander Valley at Osborn Ranch, where it is watched continuously during the harvest season and hand-selected clusters of grapes are removed from the vines only when they are sufficiently shriveled. Once fermented, the wine is left with a substantial residual sugar level and is then aged in French oak barrels.
