The exhaustive tastings that go into this opulent selection are justified when the result is as lush and intense as our Califa Pinot Noir. With an accolade history including the highest rating ever for a Central Coast Pinot by the Wine Spectator for the 2004 vintage, this pedigreed Pinot redefines the variety with concentrated black fruit and dark chocolate flavors, firm tannins and rich texture.

Our Califa Chardonnay is an amazing example of the richness and complexity this grape is capable of, with sweet, tropical fruit layered among notes of vanilla, toast and cream.
The Califa Syrah is another exceptional cool-climate Syrah with a kick
that only the Chamisal Vineyard can produce. Barrel selected from the best examples of our clones in the vineyard, this huge Syrah will only get better with time. The nose recognizes hints of Pasilla peppers and roasted espresso bean. Notes of pomegranate and dried cranberry shine through the firm tannins and acidity.
