Calistoga Cellars makes several excellent wines with a combination of purchased and estate fruit. These vintages are also very good values. Winemaker Barry Gnekow takes an artisan approach, and eschews intervention whenever possible. His goal is to let the natural flavors of the grapes shine through.
The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain this varietal’s inherent vibrancy. This wine has citrus and tropical fruit flavors that include notes of grapefruit and pears. 2% Chardonnay was blended with 98% Sauvignon Blanc for a little added body and lushness.
The Calistoga Cellars 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from the winery’s estate Blossom Creek Vineyard as well as grapes from Louer Family Vineyard in the St Helena AVA. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 24 months. 2% Syrah was blended with Cab for this wine.
