Following is a sample of some of the wines produced at Venatna:

2002 SAUVIGNON BLANC
Estate Bottled
This Sauvignon Blanc comes from vines specially "cloned", (called the "Ventana" clone or the "Musque" clone), to respond to our vineyard's cooler climate - the result yields a style and grace that accompanies cooler climate wines.
TASTING NOTES:
Floral tones and Timothy hay combine on the nose. It is completely dry on the palate. It has a rich rounded texture combined with a flinty crispness. The taste is of pure, clean Sauvignon - lemony, grassy, - definitely not a Chardonnay wannabe..

2001 GOLD STRIPE CHARDONNAY
Estate Bottled
"Queen of Dry Whites!"
TASTING NOTES:
This full-bodied wine greets you with a pleasant perfume of honey and apple. The nose carries through on the palate and harmonizes with the essence of butterscotch, vanilla, and pear, finished with a gentle taste of oak. While this wine is very precocious, it will age with grace for several years. It was designed for relatively early use. It is very applicable to dining. We have received 24 consecutive years of gold medals on our Chardonnay grapes.

2000 PINOT BLANC
Estate Bottled
Single Vineyard
TASTING NOTES:
Ventana's Pinot Blanc has a wonderful aroma of ripe apple-pear fruit with a hint of apricot and notes of "pie spices". The wine is very smooth and creamy on the palate, offering complex, layered flavors of citrus with nice acidity.

2001 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Estate Bottled
TASTING NOTES:
Ventana Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon displays a lovely Ruby/Purple color tone. It has a moderately intense bouquet of Cabernet along with a spicy oakiness and berry-cherry nuances. On the palate it is exceptionally well-balanced, having a medium-bodied texture with modest tannins. This is an elegant Bordeaux style wine - very much our house style.

2001 SYRAH
Estate Bottled
TASTING NOTES:
The syrah grape is the main grape grown in the Rhone valley and has its origins in Greece. Ventana Vineyards has been growing their Estate Syrah since the late 1970s. The wine displays a unique Black Pepper quality that is inherent in the grape. Ventana has chosen to lightly oak the wine so the wonderful Black Pepper and spice qualities are paramount. This is the wine of choice for those who prefer their red wine with an unusual flare and dry qualities.

2001 "DUE AMICI"
Estate Bottled
TASTING NOTES:
The Italian words "Due Amici", translated to English mean "Two Friends". Doug named his classic Super-Tuscan blend "Due Amici", to signify the delicious blending capability of the Sangiovese grape of Italy and the Cabernet Sauvignon grape of France (the two friends). Both are grown on our Estate Vineyard in Monterey California. "Due Amici" showcases a bright ruby color with red fruit flavors, vanilla and light tones of oak with a medium bodied wine.
