2016 Amador County Viognier 2016 Amador County Viognier

This aromatic and viscous Viognier exhibits aromas and flavors of nectarine and peach, Asian pear, and white flowers followed by a smooth, yet structured finish. Pair with any shellfish - oysters, lobster, shrimp, crab, etc. as well as soft and/or fatty cheeses.

Winemaking
We destemmed our Viognier and let it soak 24 hours on the skins prior to being pressed off into a stainless steal tank for 2-day cold settling. Juice was then racked into four neutral French Oak barrels where it underwent a 10-day native fermentation. After primary fermentation, one barrel went through full malolactic fermentation was restricted and the wine was aged sur lie for seven months, with regular battonage before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

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

This very rare grape is called a teinturier, meaning that both the grape skins and flesh are red, which make this wine both full bodied and very intense in color (also very high in antioxidants!). The wine was aged in 20% new French Oak, 20% three-times used American oak, and 60% neutral French Oak barrels, which lend its sweet, smokey aromas, roasted fennel, and black fruit characteristics. The thick skins and early harvesting give this wine amazing structure of both tannin and acid.
Pair with spiced and herb-heavy dishes, such as roasted meats and vegetables.

2015 Russian River Valley "Alegria Vineyard" Cabernet Franc 2015 Russian River Valley "Alegria Vineyard" Cabernet Franc

A wine buyer once described this wine as, "a shy dude with great hair.” I think what he meant is the wine has characteristics of a certain restrained elegance. I fermented this wine about 10% whole-cluster, meaning I added the best whole clusters of fruit (including the stems) into the fermentation with the remaining 90% desteemed, not crushed. This light-handed treatment of the fruit leads to subtle hints of bell pepper, forrest floor, herbs, raspberries and Santa Rosa plum.
Pairs with many foods, including game hens, crispy skin trout, burgers, and turkey + cranberry sauce

Winemaking

Grapes were destemmed whole berry and cold soaked for four days prior to letting the temperature rise and natural fermentation starting. After a 10-day fermentation with twice daily punchdowns, the grapes were pressed off and the juice was barreled into four neutral French Oak barrels where they aged for 13 months prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

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

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.
