2013 'Flash' Red Blend

In 2014 we lost Flash, our beloved 15 year old Australian Shepherd.  Flash was a gentle, noble soul who touched the hearts of all who knew him.

This unique blend is a tribute to the love he inspired, crafted from portions of two of our favorite barrels of Grenache and Syrah, from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard.

Reflecting his personality, the Grenache is graceful and poised, the Syrah, noble and expressive. 

We invite you to share a glass with someone you love.

2014 Roussanne

Our second ever release of 100% Roussanne, most of which goes into our flagship Pastoral Blanc blend. From the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, Russian River planting, this small less than 1 acre planting of Roussanne is the only one in the entire AVA. (Compared to over 7,000 acres of Chardonnay.)

The cool climate is more akin to the Northern Rhone, and creates a more bright expression of Roussanne, while keeping its richer texture.

Aromas of brioche, apricot, hint of lemon curd and marzipan.  Layered flavors of white peach, golden raisin,  meyer lemon, and sea salt, wet stone, in a lingering finish.

This wine sings with food - pair with triple crème cheeses, crab or scallops, Sunday Roast chicken.

2011 Russian River Syrah

Cool climate Syrah is a wonderful expression of the more elegant side of Syrah. Though Russian River Valley is dominated by Pinot Noir, its warm days and cool foggy nights provide a perfect growing environment for Syrah achieving a perfect balance of ripeness and acidity.
The 2011 vintage was one of the most challenging in decades for Russian River, cold, reduced sunlight, late ripening and mildew and rain pressure made it a nail biting harvest, but the end result was worth the hard work and perseverance. This is the one of the few Saralee’s Vineyard designate Syrah made, enjoy!
This release was hand selected from portions of 2 barrels, each contributing a unique element. One had viognier skins from a recent pressing added to the fermenter to add a slight lift in aroma and body, Cote Rotie style. The other had a small amount of whole cluster berries and stems.

2016 Rosé of Carignan

As popular as our 2015 Rosé of Carignan was, William wasn't satisfied with it, and adjusted the aging regime to 100% stainless. The end result is a wonderfully fresh, vibrant Rosé, yet retains the complexity our Rosé is known for. Unfortunately only one barrel, 25 cases, was made this year, so it will not be around for very long!

This 1/2 ton lot, was picked (by William himself) expressly for rosé, 2 weeks before we picked for our red production, to produce the natural acidity and alcohol that is the hall mark of classic rosé. While its tempting to drink it right away, those with a cellar, will enjoy savoring bottles all year round.

1 barrel - 25 cases crafted.
