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.

25 cases crafted.

Only 180 bottles for sale, do to the very small amount available, this wine is available by order for Flock Wine Club only.

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.

Only one barrel, 25 cases made.

2011 Syrah|Mourvedre

Almost sold out! Remaining amount will soon be allocated to Flock Wine Club only.

The 2010 Syrah|Mourvedre was a small production hit. (If you still have some its drinking wonderfully.)

The 2011 is brighter and leaner (hard to imagine!) and has been undergoing extra bottling aging for the Mourvedre to reveal the signature complex salinity that made the 2010 so popular, and is finally ready.

The Syrah was again from Saralee’s Vineyard in Russian River Valley, and the Mourvedre from famed Rhone grower Ron Mansfield, in El Dorado.
