2019 Clarksburg Chenin Blanc 2019 Clarksburg Chenin Blanc

A fresh, acid-driven white wine reminiscent of Chardonnay, but without all the buttery notes. Our Chenin Blanc features aromas and flavors of yellow apple, lemon verbena, apricot, ginger spice, and a bright, zippy finish. Drink on its own or pair with chicken, pork, and cow cheeses such as gruyere, triple cream brie, or cheddar.

Clarksburg AVA
The Clarksburg viticultural area lies just south of Sacramento alongside the Sacramento river which acts as a night time temperature regulator in this hot daytime region. The sandy, alluvial soils of the region and cooling river influence have many likening Clarksburg to the Loire region of France, making it a perfect area to grow Chenin Blanc in California.

WINEMAKING
We destemmed and pressed off the Chenin Blanc, 50% into stainless steel tanks and 50% into old French Oak barrels where it fermented separately. After alcoholic fermentation, we blended the juice together and aged it in neutral barrels for 8 months before bottling it unfinded and unfiltered.

2019 Amador County Grenache Noir 2019 Amador County Grenache Noir

A perfect Grenache for Pinot drinkers, this chillable red wine is bursting with fruit flavors of wild strawberries, raspberry preserves, and cherry fruit roll up, highlighted with cinnamon and white pepper spices. It's delicious, it's versatile, and we have paired with anything from pizza to duck to grilled chicken and vegetables...the fresh acidity and light tannin finish would even hold up to red meats like Hanger Steak and Filet Mignon. Only 56 cases produced, so please buy this wine before we drink it all!

Winemaking
This is our first time working with the younger vines from the top of a steep vineyard on the east side of Amador County, so we wanted to make a light, fruit-driven wine that could be served chilled and perfect for sipping. To achieve this, we sorted 50% of the fruit whole cluster into the bottom of our large, open-air fermenters and then destemmed the remaining 50% of the Grenache on top of the clusters. The wine underwent a 16-day native fermentation before we lightly pressed the juice into old French Oak barrels, where it aged for seven months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

2019 Clarksburg Malbec 2019 Clarksburg Malbec

We took our favorite barrel of Malbec and bottled only 26 cases of this wine just for our 2020 spring release! This wine is everything you love about Malbec delivered in a light, fresh package, creating a familiar yet unique experience for this rare grape to find in California. Our Malbec has flavors of Santa Rosa plum, blackberry, coffee, and hints of dark chocolate, finished off with the lightest of tannins and loads of fresh, food-friendly acidity. This is a truly versatile red wine that pairs with anything from pizza to ribs, or burgers, steak, and BBQ chicken.

Clarksburg AVA
The Clarksburg viticultural area lies just south of Sacramento alongside the Sacramento river which acts as a night time temperature regulator in this hot daytime region. The sandy, alluvial soils of the region and cooling river influence have many likening it to the Loire region of France, making it a perfect area to grow Chenin Blanc (which we also produce from this same vineyard). However, we also found many similar characteristics in the temperature and soils to the lower regions of Mendoza in Argentina, so we were stoked to pick up this vineyard and make a (rare) California 100% Malbec.

WINEMAKING
We destemmed this Malbec, 100% whole berry and fermented it in very large S-bin open air fermenters. The native ferment immediately took off the first night and the wine was completely dry and pressed off less than one week from picking. The short time on the skins yielded a very aromatic and light bodied wine, which we pressed into old French Oak barrels for 8 months aging before we bottled unfined and unfiltered.

2018 Dry Creek Valley Syrah 2018 Dry Creek Valley Syrah

A very special release for us! In 2018 our Dry Creek Syrah was harvested a day before our Viognier grapes, so we decided to take some whole cluster Viognier and co-ferment it with the Syrah (a la Côte-Rôtie style). The result is a savory, yet elevated Syrah with flavors of black olive, fresh leather, violets, blood orange, and bramble fruit with an integrated finish of acid-laced fine grain tannin. A brooding wine an elevated "spritz of perfume" from the aromatic Viognier. Pair with any cut of lamb, beef (sings with Prime Rib or hamburgers), braised foods, or BBQ and smoked meats.
