Page Mill Blanc de Blanc 2008

2012 Blanc de Blanc

$75.00

Sparkling Wine
TA: 1.97g/l
pH: 3.0
Brix at harvest: 18.7
Harvest date: 8/20/2012
Aging treatment: 36 months surtirage

Initial Fermentation:
The grapes were harvested at 18 brix then gently pressed into steel tank for settling. This creates a juice that is highly acidic and not very sweet just right for sparkling wine. The juice is cold settled and racked into a second tank for primary fermentation which removes all the sugar and leaves a base wine with about 10.2% alcohol.
Initial Bottling:
This base wine is then bottled and a “liquer de tirage”is added including 25.2 grams of sugar, Prise de mousse yeast and a special riddling agent to help aide in the removal of the spent yeast after the fermentation. The wine goes through a secondary yeast fermentation under a crown cap which captures the carbon dioxide in the bottle “adding the stars” to the wine and making it effervescent as well as raising the level of percent alcohol. This is known as Methode Champenoise..
Aging “Sur Tirage”:
The bottles are aged on their side for 3 years before disgorgement allowing the autolysis of the yeast to create a baked bread, burnt almond creaminess which add aroma and a complex mouthfeel.
Riddling:
Riddling takes place at the end of the aging when the correct complexity has been achieved. The bottles are placed neck down and each one is lifted, turned and dropped to move the yeast lees and settling agent into the mouth of the bottle. It is “jostled” in this way, by hand, 2 to 3 times per day for 6 weeks.
Disgorging:
The first inch of the neck of the bottle is frozen solid on a bed of dry ice and the crown cap removed. The frozen plug of wine and yeast lees is forcefully ejected and a final dosing of sweetening is instilled.  Sugar and the base wine are added to bring the level to 750 ml and to create an elegant Brut style wine.

2013 Sauvignon Blanc2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Ghlimetti Vineyard
Livermore, Ca
SOLD OUT

TA: 5 g/l
pH: 3.7
Brix at harvest: 24.2
Harvest date: 9/1/2015
Aging treatment: 100% stainless steel

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The Sauvignon Blanc from Livermore Valley is unrivaled in freshness and clarity of purpose. It’s the varietal that brought Page Mill Winery to Livermore Valley and will be a standard bearer for our mission.
Over the years I have sought after Sauvignon Blanc grapes that minimize the grassiness associated with this varietal and lend itself to clean, crisp aromas and flavors. This particular vineyard, in this appellation is the ultimate expression of this wine.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
Page Mill’s 34th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc shows us why we continue to pursue perfect expression of the grape. From the Ghielmetti Vineyard in Livermore, this wine might remind you of the wonderful whites from Bordeaux. The Sauvignon Blanc’s principle quality is in its youthfulness. Medium to bright acidity leads into a lean, complex finish of fresh fruit and classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas of lemon and spice. It has very little grassy characteristic. It should be served well chilled and will accompany lighter fare including salads, goat cheese and seafood….. the Spanish paella is not to be ignored with this wine…. And it is not afraid to “go it alone”…. Just open and comsume.

2013 Livermore Chardonnay2015 Chardonnay

Chandler Vineyard
$24.00

TA: 5.4 g/l
pH: 3.7
Brix at harvest: 24.4
Harvest date: 9/3/2015
Fermentation hybrid: 25% American Oak Barrels, 75% Stainless Steel
Bottled:
5/12/2015

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The Chardonnay that comes from the West end of the Livermore Valley possesses a unique focus of character within the appellation. While being in a warmer climate, the west end is separated by a double, low lying ridge line and warms the most slowly during the growing season. The sloping, rolling hills of the Kalthoff common provide small microclimates that are ideal for drainage and retaining the cool air that prolongs the growing season. This vineyard shows great potential for producing well structured, complex Chardonnays. The 2014 vintage was an early growing debut culminating in an even, dry fall. It was a challenging vintage with the drought conditions testing vine balance but ultimately culminating in developed flavors and balance.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
The barrel fermentation of 25% of this Chardonnay adds complexity while the 75% that is fermented in stainless steel under temperature control provides freshness and structure. It has opening notes of butter, lemon, fruit and honey suckle with a creamy aroma but understated oak. It has a lovely, golden straw color. The palate entry is of floral components with ripe fruit in the California style and a dry yet structured mid palate. There is honey and almond in the finish with lingering cream and a subtle kiss of American Oak.

Harvest date: 9/4/2014
Aging treatment: Aged in 100% New American Oak Barrels, 1/3 2 years aged, 1/3 3 years aged and 1/3 4 years aged
Bottled: 9/2015

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The Chardonnay that comes from the West end of the Livermore Valley possesses a unique focus of character within the appellation. While being in a warmer climate, the west end is separated by the Bay influence by a double, low lying ridge line and warms the most slowly during the growing season. The sloping, rolling hills of the Kalthoff common provide small microclimates that are ideal for drainage and retaining the cool air that prolongs the growing season.
This vineyard shows great potential for producing well structured, complex Chardonnays”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
The barrel aging of this Chardonnay creates an elegant depth to the chardonnay that stainless production does not offer. It is aged in new oak barrels and the lees are stirred for fourth months, every other week. It has opening notes of butter, ripe fruit, honey and almond, with a creamy aroma and a back drop of toasty oak.  It has beautifully balanced acidity, making it a perfect pairing for rich seafood dishes and more!
It has a lovely, golden straw color.
The palate entry is of rich, golden honey and toasted almond with ripe fruit in the California, oak driven style and a generous, voluptuous mid palate. There is honey and almond as well as vanilla and toasty oak in the finish with lingering cream and a layered finish.

2015 Angela’s Cuvee2013 Angela's Cuvee

California
$18.00

TA: 5.4 g/l
pH: 3.7
Brix at harvest: 25.9
Harvest date: 9/19/2014
Aging treatment: 100% stainless steel
Bottled: 5/2015

Winemaker’s Notes:
“From my time in France I have long sought to emulate one wine in particular. The dry rose wines of the Tavel.
As a wine consuming public we were led astray by the white zinfandels of the ‘80s and are only now coming out of the wilderness, realizing the potential, the versatility of a classicaly made, dry, lovely, refreshing rose wine.
I began making rose as a saigne from Cab, Merlot and Zin in the late ‘90’s and now dedicate a harvest of Grenache specifically to this wine.
I am very invested in the outcome of this production… after all, it’s named after my wife.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
The Grenache for this wine is left after crushing on the skins for 6 hours (depending on vintage) where the juice absorbs color and hints of the complexity of reds. It is then pressed off and fermented cool in stainless vats. It is bottled soon after the new year under a full moon.

It should be served well chilled and has a versatility that can only be brought to your table by being a hybrid wine. It straddles the world between white and red, presenting freshness on the palate and complexity of aroma. It brings emotional legerte (French for lightness) like “opera in the park”, fancy outdoors like “Kentucky derby” and rugged fine cuisine like “great American cookout” as no other wine can.

zin2013 Zinfandel

Spenker Vineyard
Lodi
$26.00

TA: 6.5g/l
pH: 3.64
Brix at harvest: 26.2
Harvest date: 9/10/2013
Aging treatment: Barrel aged 19 months

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The Spenker Vineyard is south of Sacramento in the Lodi appellation. The vineyard is head pruned, as it has been for three generations. It is dry farmed according to the Lodi Rules, one of California’s most stringent set of regulations regarding farming ethically. Chuck and Betty-Ann are in the vineyard at harvest and cull the fruit that goes into my picking bin, tossing bunches of grapes that look less than perfect to the ground.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
From the shallow water table and delta breezes, comes this gem of a Zinfandel. This vintage is a clear ruby red with clean edges and brilliant clarity. The nose has a pretty bouquet of floral components, a touch of oak and traditional Zin aromas. The mouthfeel is medium in weight with jam and candied cherry, a hint of smoke leading to a supple mid palate and a clean and spicy finish.
Oak plays a minor roll in this wine which saw entirely American barrels with a small percentage of the aging time being in newer barrels.

Harvest date: 10/9/2013
Aging treatment: 100% American oak medium grain, 10% New oak.
Bottled: 9/8/2015

Winemaker’s Notes:

“The grapes for this wine come from three different vineyards in the Livermore Valley. They have been selected for producing exceptional wines for the region.
The Livermore Valley will produce stunning Cabs, and this vintage is no exception. The East end of the valley provides heat, deep soils, and a length to the day during the growing season that provides for weighty Cabernet Sauvignon. The west end has rockier terrain, more fertile ground and more even ripening.Two of the vineyards, Crane Ridge and Thatcher Bay, are south and west facing respectively, providing depth on the palate and structure. The third vineyard, in Kalthoff Commons, is fairly flat ground with deep soils and increased topography providing retained cooling through the morning hours, it lends opulence of fruit to the blend. With the grace of this wine, age ability is assured.”

Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
The color of this wine is ruby red to light purple in the center with clarity and rich edges. It opens with vibrant fruit, a touch of cranberry and violets and quite a bit of intensity with berry fruit and a touch of oak. The plums are backed by rich cassis and a dense fruit mouthfeel. Medium tannins provide for a wonderful food wine and tremendous age-ability and a weighty mid palate. The finish mingles toasted oak and ripe fruit for a rich experience of classic Cabernet Sauvignon.

Livermore Valley
(6% Grenache, 14% Petite Sirah, 80% Syrah)
SOLD OUT

Brix at harvest: 25
Harvest date: 9/8-10/1/2014
Aging treatment: 80% Aged American Oak
20% New American Oak

Winemaker’s Notes:
“To be a good winemaker is to be a good listener. We spend entire seasons listening to the vineyard, trying to balance the vine to its environment, water with the vine’s need, adjusting to the cycles. We watch the shoots, the clusters, the canopy and the cover crop. We put our ear to the proverbial ground at harvest, weighing the ripeness of the fruit with the health of the vine, the weather, projected remaining heat in the season, rain fall…. And “hear” when it is time to pick. We spend years listening to the wine in barrels, does it need more oak? Is it too tannic? Will it age longer? Does it need to be bottled?
I have spent 12 years listening to the Livermore Valley appellation and this spot, this valley, these vineyards with their history, they give me perspective. Leave the overwrought Cabs to the North, the mist enshrouded Pinots to the West. Give me glorious floral. Give me fruit driven blends. Let me hear the Grenache, the Petite Sirah and the Syrah grapes that enjoy deep soils, heated summers, and afternoon bay breezes only the east bay experiences. Put these varietals together, grown in this place, and the Livermore Valley pulls back the veil to bring you into its fold. This blend says “place”, it says “unique”, it says “Livermore Valley” like no other blend can.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting notes:
Beautiful ruby red with clear edges and depth
This wine opens with ripe berries, a back bone of oak, layered cassis, smoke and dense fruit. The palate is weighty, with medium tannins, a lengthy mid palate and full mouthfeel. It finishes long with ripe fruit, clove and hints of vanilla.
It should age gracefully.

2012 Tazetta Syrah

Sleepy Holler Vineyard

$28.00

TA: 4.3 g/l
pH: 4.23
Brix at harvest: 25.7
Harvest date: 9/9/2014
Aging treatment: 10% New American Oak

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The Pope Valley is tucked into the north east corner of Napa, high in the mountains that surround it. Page Mill has sourced fruit from this corner of the valley for years and is very familiar with this growing region. It creates wines of elegance with a rich backbone and terroir. This vineyard is immaculately tended by the premier vineyard manager in the valley, Johny White. The soil is broken up with a spade hoe leaving no hard pan for run-off and managing weeds manually. Mildecides are used on an as-needed basis creating vintages with no applications whatever. The vineyard creates intensity with character.” 
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting notes:
Medium ruby in color. This wine opens with fresh fruit on the nose of plums and strawberries, leather and spice with a hint of oak as a back drop. Medium intensity entry leads to a velvety mid palate and soft tannins around the back of the palate with bright acidity and a silky finish. Hints of roses and leather linger on the palate with subtle oak. It has a layer of chocolate that runs throughout creating the impression of cocoa that paints the fruit through the finish which is long and pleasing.
A brilliant food wine.

TA: 5g/l
pH: 3.55
Brix at harvest: 24.2
Harvest date: 10/1/2013
Aging treatment: Aged American Oak

Winemaker’s Notes:
“This Syrah comes from the vineyard immediately adjacent to the Winery property. It is an organically farmed, ½ acre vineyard with an average vine age of 16 years. It has copious fruit and dense character stemming from the perfect drainage and aggressive pruning strategy. It is kept under 3 tons to the acre providing a dense structure and intense flavor profile. Gail Shearer is growing great Syrah in the valley and the quality of this vineyard should continue to improve as the vines reach full maturity and the site gains its full potential.”

 Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting notes:
Dark ruby in color with uniform clarity. This wine opens with prunes, lilac, smoke and cedar and heavy, ripe fruit. The medium intensity entry leads to a heady mid palate and noticeable tannins around the back and sides of the palate with lush floral components leading to a long finish. Hints of jam and leather linger on the palate with dense fruit.
This wine will age beautifully and reward those with patience with a further developing of the fruit, depth and balance.

Residual Sugar: 7%

Alcohol Percentage: 18%

Winemaker’s Notes:
“From the old world porto producers comes a tradition that dates back hundreds of years. Topping barrels from the newest to the oldest and bottling from the oldest. The Solera Method ensures that a portion from each vintage in the blend ends up in every bottling… what a way to track a lifetime of wine production.
This wine is a blend of the 1996 through 2015 vintages. It is a combination of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Cab Franc entering the blend in the last couple years. My preference is chocolate, but my second choice is delicate port and fresh fruit with cheese… for the second, the dessert wine must not be overpowering like a port one would drink with a cigar… but rather elegant and even handed so that the fruit and cheese can be enjoyed as well. It should not be dessert in a glass, but it should accompany dessert. “This is the ninth lot that we have bottled from our barrels of port.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
With a light red color and tan edge, the first impression is one of age. Upon inspecting its aroma we realize this wine is of design and in balance. Its nose has brown sugar, sweet cherry, cedar and currant. The alcohol is evident but subdued and not overpowering. In the mouth this wine comes to life with a coating sweetness and currants, raisins, cherries and plenty of spice. Remarkably the finish is medium in length, making room for the fresh pear and dried figs, St Ettiene and Goudda cheeses. It refreshes rather than adds weight to the experience, cleaning the palate in preparation for the next bite.

Aging treatment: 30% New American Oak

Winemaker’s Notes:
“This Pinot Noir represents my return to the varietal.
For 22 years I made Pinot Noir from Santa Maria, leaving that vineyard in 2007 to seek a more down to earth vineyard, one born of the soil and rich in tradition.
This vineyard is very small with low yields, small berries and classic Pinot Noir structure. As we work with the vineyard, I expect to develop a sense of place. As my father used to say… “Cabernet may knock your socks off, but Pinot Noir slips them off slowly”.
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting notes:
Deep ruby with clear red velvet through the center, the edges are wisps of clarity. This wine has classic Pinot Noir fruit, with characteristic earthiness and structure driven by low yields and a rugged altitude overlooking the north bay. It has a wonderful backbone of cedar and cherries with floral notes and a medium oak presence that lingers on the edges. The finish is elegant and clean with lingering tannins spiced up by the vanilla of American Oak.
This wine will age beautifully, becoming classically Burgundian over time.

Winemaker’s Notes:
“The grapes for this wine come from the Ghielmetti vineyard in the Livermore Valley. The vineyard is producing Bordeaux varietals exceptionally well and the Cabernet Franc is one of them. In the same way that the Livermore Valley will produce stunning Cabs, it will also tender great Cab Francs. The East end of the valley provides heat, deep soils, and a length to the day during the growing season that provides for weighty Cab Franc, not a varietal that goes it alone as much.

With the grace of this wine ageability is assured.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
The color of this wine is ruby red to dark red in the center with brilliant clarity and crisp edges. On the nose, there are notes of cedar and smoke with a touch of cranberry, cherry.  It opens with lengthy fruit and violets. It has subdued oak through the mid palate. P lums are backed by rich cassis, a hint of chocolate and a pleasing mouthfeel. Medium tannins provide for a wonderful food wine and tremendous age-ability.

Winemaker’s Notes:
“Malbec is an intriguing, classically Argentinian varietal and one of the five Bordeaux components. Although usually blended into the Bordeaux wines, this varietal, produced on its own carries weight on the pallet and is generous in fruit. This is a single vineyard Malbec which rivals the Argentinian classic presentation.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting Notes:
Medium ruby in color, this wine has a generous aroma of fresh fruit, berries and currants. Medium intensity dried floral notes lead to a chocolatey mid palate and soft tannins around the back of the palate with integrated acidity and a lengthy finish. Cacao and smokey flavors hide an underlay of raspberry which carries the fruit to the finish. The depth of fruit and balance on the wine presage aging potential for a number of years.

Winemaker’s Notes:
“This Petite Sirah is our estate vineyard.”
It covers just under two acres and is farmed organically with yield kept under 2.5 tons to the acre. Weeds are mechanically treated and part of the living soil. All mildecides are certified organic.This vineyard and varietal are the flagship wine from Page Mill Winery. We have a unique opportunity in that the vineyard is in the birthplace of Petite Sirah, and with the terroir of the deep, rocky soils and microclimate specific to Livermore Valley, the varietal is unparalleled.”
Dane Stark, winemaker

Tasting notes:
Dark ruby to deep purple-red in color with density normally associated with this varietal, inky. This wine is opulent on fruit, with characteristic earthiness and structure driven by low yields and careful water management. It has a wonderful backbone of raspberries and dense cocoa mixed with a medium oak presence that lingers on the edges. The finish is elegant and clean with lingering floral notes and berries, spiced up by the vanilla of American Oak.
This wine will age beautifully and reward those with patience with heightened balance in the future.

Quality Wine

When Dick Stark began making wine in 1975 there were no commercially available malo-lactic bacteria available to winemakers, today we have access to very effective strains. The number of yeasts used for wine production were very few, the 2012 harvest saw no fewer than 6 different yeast strains used in wine production. Today stainless steel, temperature controlled fermentations and extensive lab work make a very different winemaking landscape than in the past.

Page Mill, in the past, produced wines from appellations all over the state. As wine grape production matured and expanded the need to travel in search of quality fruit was diminished and today, we harvest 90% of our wine grapes from one appellation, the Livermore Valley.

Although the Santa Cruz Mountains provided an ideal starting point for Page Mill Winery it became apparent in the early 2000’s that a change was needed. While the family house on Page Mill Rd was quaint and a good jumping off point, the winery was needing to expand and create a dedicated tasting room. Dane and Angela looked in Paso Robles, the Sierra Foothills, Healdsburg and all over the Santa Cruz Mountains before taking the decision to move the winery to Livermore Valley. When we arrived we were winery number 24 in the valley that now boasts over 50 wineries.

Quality Grapes

Great wines start with high-quality grapes. Each vineyard Page Mill Winery works with has dedicated a portion of the vineyard to Page Mill so that the grapes come from the same vines each year. Dane makes the decision as to when to pick and personally supervises each harvest. All current releases are available for online purchase. We ship to 6 states.
