Red Wine

In short supply in 2021 from 75% less crop due to drought. Inspired by our kitten, Wiley, a carbonic soul. A true carbonic carignan, sealed in tank for 2.5 weeks, then pressed back to stainless to finish fermenting and aged 4 months. Intense fresh berry aromatics leap out of the glass, both complex & fun flavors, that belie its youthfulness. Wiley has grown from a kitten to king of the farm, and like his personality, this vintage is slightly more serious, though still playful.    12.5 % alc. Serve slightly chilled. 175 cases crafted.

Our 4th vintage of our wildly popular Pinot Meunier!  This variety is rarely found as a still wine, and often abused when it is. It’s a delicate wine that doesn't respond well to heavy oak, thus perfectly suited for our light hand. 

From the oldest planting in the Russian River, Pinot Meunier is very rare as a still wine. Our light touch produces an elegant, subtly layered, light bodied, complex and savory wine.

The goat logo pays tribute to finding this vineyard when getting our two goats.  225 cases made.

This special 175 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, is the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally considered a blending grape.

The 2020 vintage is one of the most delicate, ethereal. Aromatics so alluring you will literally just leave your nose in the glass. Light bodied, drink with a slight chill, sit back and...chill. (For those who remember the 2017 vintage, this is in a similar vein.) 175 cases made. 12% alc.

100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small 3/4 ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 8 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called an example of “delightful, delicious wine from under-appreciated grapes."

We are delighted for our premier offer of a small Syrah vineyard in Glen Ellen area of Sonoma Valley. This 1/2 acre is hand and organically farmed by the Knight family, and hand picked by us! 

The valley the vineyard is situated and sees considerable fog, ripens slowly in the cool climate,  creating a classic Northern Rhone style Syrah, perhaps one of our best yet. The color is a pretty, bright garnet, with classic Northern Rhone notes of dried herbs, thyme, cured meat,  black olive. Pair with grilled lamb, duck and other game poultry, grilled eggplant.

We loved this special little vineyard, and were heartbroken to learn that it did not survive the 2020 Glass fire.

Only 2 barrels, 50 cases crafted.
