2013 Amador County "Estranged" Alicante Bouschet 2013 Amador County "Estranged" Alicante Bouschet

Alicante Bouschet is a hybrid of ancient varietals Teintureir du Cher and Aramon, crossed with the more modern Grenache grape. One of the only grape varietals that actually have red juice, Alicante Bouschet was widely planted in California during Prohibition for its shipping durability to “home winemakers” on the East Coast.

Modernly dismissed as uninteresting and used mainly as a blending grape for it’s deep color, we found a low-yielding, high altitude vineyard in Amador County that showcases the tremendous potential of this fruit. The warm days and cool nights at 1,550’ elevation allow thick skins to develop, yielding rounded tannins and a balanced acidity.

Estranged from its oft lauded blending counterparts, this 100% Alicante Bouschet opens with aromas of white pepper, dill, meat and chalky earth, giving way to flavors of blackberry, candied orange and cola, making it a perfect compliment to roasted root vegetables and grilled meats such as lamb, steak, and game birds.

2012 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2012 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

Vineyard Notes
AVA: Anderson Valley, Mendocino County
Vineyard Location: 2 miles west of downtown Booneville
Vineyard Size: 1.0 acre
Elevation: 318’ (116m)

Soil Composition: sandy, gravelly alluvial loam

Anderson Valley uniquely cuts through the coastal range rather than lying between ridges like most valleys. Our vineyard is located only 18 miles from the Pacific Ocean, where diurnal shifts can cause temperature swings of up to 50 degrees, keeping acid development in line with sugar and flavor formation.

Winemaking

Grapes were destemmed whole berry and cold soaked for four days. After an eight-day fermentation with twice daily punchdowns, the grapes were pressed off and the juice was barreled into two neutral, one once filled, and one twice filled French Oak barrels where they aged for 16 months prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Dark cherries, clove, and a touch of vanilla highlight this rich, complex Pinot Noir, which finishes with bright and balanced acidity.

Harvest date: October 1, 2012
Lot size: 1.8 tons
Clove: 777
Total acidity: 6.34 g/L
pH: 3.47

2015 Russian River Valley "Ted Williams Vineyard" Zinfandel 1.5L Bottle 2015 Russian River Valley "Ted Williams Vineyard" Zinfandel 1.5L Bottle

NOTE: This is a 1.5L magnum bottle (only 12 bottles produced!). Go big with our first MAGNUM bottle and be everyone's favorite person at your next party or dinner with friends.

"THE RESILIENT BLOCK"

On a small, private estate vineyard surrounded by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards, lies a sleepy one acre block of Zinfandel planted in the 1970's. Throughout all of the years and winemaking trends, this resilient bunch of old vines has managed to survive.

In their honor, we wanted to make a Zinfandel reminiscent of early California winemaking, harvesting at lower sugar levels, fermenting whole berry, and aging in 100% neutral French Oak barrels.

The result is a light, feminine-style Zinfandel that showcases a distinctive minerality and aromas of fresh-picked wild berries that pair beautifully with grilled meats and vegetables.
