Inman Family Library Wines
Open Up That Bottle!
Since our first vintage of Inman Family in 2002, we have saved wines to see how they age to help us understand our winemaking progression, and to have something to share with our friends and family when the wines reach maturity. A secondary goal was to prove how well our Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay age under Stelvin screwcaps with Saratin liners.
The time has come to re-release some of these early vintages. During the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have had the time to go through our vinotemp and warehouse storage and have pulled out some favorite vintages to share with you. If there was ever a time to open older wines, this is it!
Quantities are limited, ranging from 1-48 bottles of each wine, and obviously are only available while supplies last.

From Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, the 2013 Pratt Vine Hill Pinot Noir is a highly perfumed wine with bright red and blue fruits that will dazzle! This beautiful site is planted with "heritage" or "suitcase" clones and a bit of Dijon 667.
2 cases available
From the Sonoma Coast, the 2013 Sexton Road Ranch Pinot Noir has luscious, dark, concentrated fruit and racy acidity which combines with generous tannins to create an age-worthy structure. Equally enjoyable now or cellar for later.

From Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, this bright, lean, and delicious 2014 Chardonnay is a great food pairing wine, but we think also the best wine to relax with and share with friends.
Pink bubbles are back! Always a favorite in our tasting room (and a favorite of Kathleen's), we see the 2014 OGV Estate Brut Rosé not only as an apéritif, but as a serious food wine for a main course or a dessert.
