As the temperatures dip in the Anderson Valley, the road and tasting room quiet. This still period means that Navarro's staff has more time to visit, making the dawn of 2020 an especially nice time for Navarro friends to visit in person or with a phone call or email. Five dry whites from the 2018 vintage represent the best of Anderson Valley, including four that were aged sur lie in French oak ovals: Gewürztraminer, Muscat Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The fifth, our barrel-aged Chardonnay Table Wine, is an exceptional bargain. Three Gold Medal-winning red wines from the 2017 vintage are also available: two estate-grown Pinot Noirs— Méthode à l'Ancienne and Deep End— and an Old Vine Zinfandel. Navarro's 2018 Cluster Select Late Harvest Riesling is as dazzling as the fog rolling over the Valley on a crisp, cold morning. As a small, family winery we always like to include the youngsters and non-drinkers with three yummy varietal grape juices.
We hope you will have time to savor this tranquil time of year with us.
