We absolutely love these old vines planted on their own roots, in an unlikely spot in Antioch, CA. Vibrant fruit including pomegranate, black cherry, and wild strawberry, as well as floral notes of rose and violets. A substantial wine with round tannins and a velvety mouthfeel, balanced by vibrant acidity and long sweet finish.
The grapes for this blend came primarily from the Signal Ridge Vineyard and was modeled after Grand Cru wines from the Beaujolais region of France. Its light red color, excellent aromatics, and silky-smooth texture mark it as more “Old World” style of wine.
A beautiful wine that offers bright, lively fruit with a great structure and balance. This Grenache is made in almost a Grand Cru Beaujolais style that offers a velvety texture with aromas of wild strawberry and flavors of strawberries and raspberries and a finish of minerals and peppery spice.
We take this fruit from the biodynamically farmed Heart Arrow Ranch in Mendocino Co, ferment using whole clusters and uncrushed grapes, followed by aging in 900-gallon casks to create a wine that is more similar to a Beaujolais than a California Zinfandel. Soft and velvety with flavors of black cherry and strawberry.
The warm 2018 vintage produced fully ripened fruit resulting in a deep reddish-pink color that hints at the wonderful aromatics and rich, velvety texture and wild cherry and pomegranate flavors of this exceptional rosé.
2016 is our 20th anniversary and we felt a sparkling wine was the perfect way to celebrate. This elegant wine is made from Chenin Blanc that we harvested at night, fermented cold, and aged on the yeast for 20 months. The floral aroma is accompanied by minerals, toast, & flavors of stone fruits balanced citrus acidity.
Minerals, spice, and beautiful aromatics and texture. We use a 500-gallon egg-shaped concrete fermentation vessel—affectionately named Bart—to highlight the minerality of the grapes, and the results have exceeded our expectations again.
This wine has great depth of flavors, earthy, mineral, floral, and pear fruit. On the mid-palate, lovely fruit flavors of pear, apricot, and peach, mixed with minerals, earth, and a touch of fennel spice. Great with rich or spicy foods!
The bright red volcanic soil, steep rocky slopes, and western exposures always make for wines that feature intense blackberry and cassis, chocolate, licorice, coffee, and peppery spice. Always a crowd-pleaser!
