It's back! 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.

A great winter red for pairing with ribs, stews, or simply by the fire with Netflix or a book.  12.2% alc

Our third vintage of our wildly popular Pinot Meunier!  In our opinion the best yet, with the silkiness of the 2015, and the structure of the 2016. 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.  The goat logo pays tribute to finding this vineyard when getting our two goats.  Only 100 cases made.

This special 125 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, is believed to be 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 best as a blending grape.

Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ 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."
