Included in this set

1 x Cannonball Eleven Sauvignon Blanc 2017

ELEVEN Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the legendary Dry Creek Valley, a small AVA made of gravel and sandy loam soils characterized by warm breezes, rich alluvium, and well-drained visually stunning rocky red soils. The warm days and cool evenings mature our grapes early in the season, and the long sunny afternoons enhance development of flavors in both the citrus and tropical fruit spectrums. Primarily fermented in stainless steel to preserve the dramatic fruit attributes. A small portion is fermented in French oak barrels to create a blending component that adds dimension, and a subtle richness and depth that are rare and exciting in Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc. Vibrant aromas of guava, pineapple, and passion fruit continue onto the palate and are joined by waves of honeydew melon, tangerine, and lychee flavors. The mid-palate shows a lively acidity and soft floral notes leading to a pleasingly persistent finish.

1 x Cannonball Eleven Chardonnay 2017

ELEVEN Chardonnay was grown in the Sonoma Coast where the cool climate fruit strikes a balance between opulence and elegance. Defined by its proximity to the dramatic Pacific coastline and a direct maritime influence it is characterized by pastoral valleys rolling hillsides, high rainfall, adobe to silty sand soils, and windswept ridges. The growing season is long, natural acidity is abundant. Fermentation and the ensuing eight months of cellaring took place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The barrel-fermented component included 20% new French oak and 15% second fill barrels. A further 40% of the blend was aged sur-lie in neutral French oak to build richness and texture and to round out the lively acidity. The balance of the blend was aged in stainless steel tanks to retain bright fruit and a vibrant bouquet. This cool climate Chardonnay is delicate in profile; balancing Meyer lemon and white peach fruit with honeycomb, flint, and mineral notes. The palate reveals notes of sweet apple and mellow pear, and preserved lemon. A vivid streak of acidity runs through the palate, unifying flavors and leading to a crisp, toasty, lightly oaked finish.

1 x Cannonball Eleven Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

ELEVEN Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in select areas of Sonoma County. Our Northern Sonoma Valley vineyard source is perched on an impossibly steep hillside near Hood Mountain, where intensely rocky soils and elevations of 600 feet and higher coalesce to yield tiny, darkly pigmented berries. The sheer power of the Sonoma Valley fruit is framed and tamed by the refinement of our Alexander Valley vineyard, nestled in the mild climate of the southern Alexander Valley. In the cellar our barrel regime is focused on a tightly curated range of French oak coopers with a focus on Seguin Moreau Icone, LeGrand, and Demptos. The artisan touches these cooperages provide contribute elegance, finesse, and background structure to the wine. Each Cabernet lot is fermented and aged separately in barrel for 14 months, then blended and aged a further 10 months as an ensemble. The final blend is comprised of nearly equal parts from each region, displaying a purple core of luscious juicy ripe black fruits, blueberry, peppered meats, and rich earthen notes. The full-bodied mid-palate leads to a long finish with excellent balance and structure complimented by firm acidity and soft integrated tannins.
