Coq au Vin With Estate Cabernet Franc

by David on February 14, 2011

A classic French dish, Coq au Vin originated in Burgundy but we have used our lush and generous Cabernet Franc grown on our Yountville Estate in this recipe. The cherry and sweet raspberry flavors of the wine pair perfectly with this hearty dish ideal for this time of year. Better yet, the recipe is easy […]


Happy New Year! All of us at Goosecross wish you a happy and healthy 2011! On these cold winter days we always turn to comfort food – the kind that warms us from the inside. Colleen developed the recipe for these slow-cooked short ribs to warm your kitchen and your heart. The fork-tender short ribs with […]


Some clichés exist for a reason and here’s a classic example: Grilled steak paired with a really good glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Honestly, can you imagine ever getting tired of such a simple, delicious pleasure? And, when you throw a healthy dose of garlic into the equation,  you’ve got a real crowd pleaser. This quick […]


2005 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

by David on May 21, 2010

When you’re in the mood for intensity, pull the cork on this one! Deep, dark flavors are a natural for mountain fruit. The water and nutrient-stressed vines at our Howell Mountain site yield tiny grapes that almost look like purple peas! The increased skin to juice ratio pumps up the volume when it comes to color, […]

2007 Yountville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

by David on March 22, 2010

New release: What a vintage! As Geoff, our Winemaker, says “On a year like this, the best thing for me to do is try to stay out of the way and let the fruit do the talking.” A spring, summer and fall of warm, sunny days and cool, foggy nights adds up to ripe, luscious […]


2007 Napa Valley Syrah

by David on March 21, 2010

New release! When you crave deep, dark intensity this is the wine for you! Thick skinned and loaded with pigment, Syrah was born to make a statement! It’s such a pleasure to begin releasing our reds from the 2007 vintage. It was about as close to a textbook growing season as we could hope for. […]


As the days get warmer and longer it makes a nice change to enjoy some lighter fare. Colleen’s new recipe brings together a delicious melange of your favorite flavors – the zesty lemon makes a great counterpoint to the rich, buttery olives. Add in some garlic, licorice-like fennel and woodsy rosemary and you  have a […]


Why not pull out all the stops during this very festive time of year? Whether it’s for the whole family gathered around the holiday table or an intimate dinner party to celebrate the new year, this will be a meal to remember. One bite of the buttery fillet with the rich, supple ÆROS® reminds you of why this […]

ÆROS isn’t a single wine, but a series of limited-production wines made only in the exceptional vintages that […]
