Nancy, 2016 : Nancy was the very first super premium white wine of the Fingerprint series. Nancy has been dedicated to and named after Chateau Elan founder, Dr. Nancy Panoz. It is a blend of 4 varieties, 42% Viognier, 24% Trebbiano, 23% Albarino and 11% Chardonnay. The single varieties were fermented separately and blended just prior the bottling. There was no malolactic fementation and 5% was aged in new French oak barrels; the remainder matured in stainless steel tanks. Nancy shows a mix of citrus fragrances with sweet hawthorn, jasmine, hints of bread, and ginger on the nose. After tasting, a light tannin structure coming from the viognier and trebbiano grapes follows. It has a great entrance, persistent saltiness, smooth middle palate and a spiky-vivid acidity. 13.8% Alcohol, 0.1% RS
Les Petits, 2016 : An even blend of Petit Verdot and Petit Syrah grown in Paso Robles and Woodlands, this opulent wine is strong, deep, and very rich. It is intense and highly structured, delivering layers of nuances from dark raisin to bread to spicy berry tart and finishing with a beautiful finish. Les Petits is a wine that is perfect for lovers of succulent, deep, rich, red wines. 15.5% Alcohol, 0.1% RS
Uvaggio, 2016 : Uvaggio is a beautiful red blend of Barbara and Tempranillo with a black violet color. Aromas of prunes, dates, dried olives, chocolate, and menthol fill your nose while on the palate a bright, dry-yet-fruity wine coats your mouth and finishes with a baked blueberry and sea salt finish. This is a beautifully intense red wine that showcases rich dried fruits and luscious aromas. 15.8% Alcohol, 0.1% RS
Grenache, 2017 : This stunning wine is ruby in color and opens up at the nose with an abundance of chocolates and cherries with hints of leather. The intensity on the palate is quite amazing – a big volume followed by a spicy acidity yet has delicate tannins and a bright smooth finish. This is a wine you will wish you had every day, at any time. 15.5% Alcohol. 0.1% RS
Tempranillo, 2015 : This wine shows a bright deep violet color, almost black. Aromas and flavors of rasins, dark chocolate, molasses, and port with a chewy, crisp, medium-full body and a carefree finish with firm tannins. Rich dried fruits show beautifully in this dense and chewy tempranillo. 15% Alcohol, 0.1% RS
MAMELI: Dark garnet color. Beautiful aromas and flavors of Turkish incense, olive and pickled pepper relish, and chocolate covered craisins with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, long finish conveying accents of pencil shavings, spiced blackberries, cedar, and soft earth with firm, earthy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A nicely composed blend of Italian varieties (46% Barbera- 34% Montepulciano – 20% Nebbiolo) with appealing fruit and oak in a more international style.
MALBEC: Deep purple color. Aromas of plum pudding and raisin brioche with a vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, easy chocolate chips, chestnut, and honey finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A mouthfilling malbec with great structure and wide-appealing style.
