2014, the vintage we call Esmé (meaning” esteemed”), was a year of record-breaking drought with a few well-timed rains. It produced excellent quality fruit with great harmony and depth of flavor. Made with grapes sourced from Coombsville, where the pocket of cool climate is very important to growing well balanced, intense fruit. It drinks beautifully now, and yet has plenty of time left in the bottle. Our winemaker, Jason Holman, brilliantly coaxes a traditional Bordeaux-inspired blend from 5 grapes.

• 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec, 10% Alicante Bouschet.

• Grapes sourced from Coombsville, AVA

• 100% neutral French Oak barrels, aged 24 months

• 225 Cases Produced. Every bottle is individually numbered.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Aroma

    Elegant, rich blackberry, black currant and dark chocolate mingle with a hint of sweet tobacco on the nose.
  • Palate

    The black fruits open with silky dark plum notes developing into a soft cocoa finish. Cassis and sage are present underneath the brambly, slightly smokey presence of Alicante Bouschet whose red skin flesh imparts the beautiful dark amethyst cast. The near perfect conditions in 2014 created a wine with significant structure and softer tannins.
  • Pairings

    This intoxicating wine would enhance a meal of herbed roasted rack of lamb, rich potatoes au gratin and a starter of duck (or chicken) liver pate’.

“Ondulé is a timeless collection of wines to be enjoyed together on any occasion.”

Ondulé Wines, the passion project of a 4th generation California family, was conceived in Los Angeles and born in Napa Valley. Our love of wine and recognition of its role in the family inspired us to create a brand we could all appreciate together. In Ondulé, we combine the old-world wine making techniques with the best new world grapes available, sourced from different vineyards. This meticulous selection allows us to create a custom crush resulting in a timeless collection of wines we are proud to make our next family tradition.
