DISTILLER'S NOTES:

Germain-Robin is met with a nose of oak spice and fruit. The fruit forward notes of apple and pear are lightly accented with honeysuckle and cherry blossom, giving way to a rich apricot and peach flavor. Well integrated toasted oak gives light accents of cinnamon and brown sugar. The rich full mouthfeel lingers after finish in this balanced blend.

GERMAIN-ROBIN XO

GERMAIN-ROBIN XO BRANDY

Germain-Robin XO is an icon of California Brandy. Distilled exclusively in Pruhlo Charentais Pot Stills and aged in Limousin Oak Barrels, XO highlights the unique flavor and characteristics of California Pinot Noir grapes.

DISTILLER'S NOTES:

The high-quality California wine grapes in Germain-Robin XO showcase unique flavors and layered textures. The signature grape, Pinot Noir, provides a dark cherry character and a rich silky mouthfeel. Colombard distillate adds a fresh apple character while Sémillon provides richness with peach and apricot notes. The balance of both fruit and oak flavors is unique to Germain-Robin XO. The vanilla and toast flavors from the French oak complement the fruit which creates layers of complexity that only can be found from sourcing great fruit. The fermentation and distillation is driven with the goal of emphasizing fruit and mouthfeel and then paired with aging in select Limousin Oak Barrels. Texturally, the brandy is extremely smooth and has an incredibly long finish.

GERMAIN-ROBIN SINGLE BARREL PINOT NOIR

“It’s the best I’ve ever seen,” remarked Hubert Germain-Robin after tasting the first run of California Pinot Noir brandy that he and Ansley Coale distilled in 1983. Their decision to distill California Pinot Noir would change the face of brandy making forever. Double distilled in Prulho Charentais pot stills in 2001 and aged 19 years in heirloom Limousin Oak barrels, this single barrel brandy made from Anderson Valley, Mendocino California grown Pinot Noir grapes was chosen for its exceptional character, paying homage to our founders’ contribution to ne brandy making.

DISTILLER'S NOTES:

Single Barrel Pinot Noir brandy captures the fruit character of the Pinot Noir grape on both the nose and the palate. Aromas of barrel spice give way to dried cherry and apricot, with a layer of tobacco, and hints of coffee. On the palate there’s weight, boldness, and depth. Beyond fruit are earthy flavors of oak and a touch of leather that instantly give way to a bright red cherry finish.

SIGNATURE FLAVORS:

Cherry, Oak, Coffee
