2018 Cabernet Franc
Juicy black cherry, savory hint of red pepper, musky je-ne-sais-quoi, this wine checks all the boxes of a solid and pure Cabernet Franc. From a tiny vineyard in the north-eastern part of the Russian River appellation, only 35 cases produced.
Fun, fresh, and fruity! This Mendocino county, old vine Carignan shows bright flavor and acidity with moderate alcohol. So versatile it might just become your new favorite companion at the dinner table.
120 cases bottled.
The 2016 vintage is sadly the last one from this vineyard (it has since been grafted to Nebiolo), but this wine is going out with a bang! Where do I start? It is definitely on the fruity and rich side of Montepuciano and it packs vibrant flavors of black cherry and currants. The fine grained tannins mesh beautifully with the juicy core of the wine. I think I'm in love. Only 48 cases produced.
Only 5 cases left...
From grapes grown at 1300 feet elevation in the Yorkville Highland appelation of Mendocino county.
This wine shows the classic side of Montepulciano with bitter chocolate and dusty, tobaccoey notes. There is plenty of tannic structure here but the wine manages to stay light on its feet thanks to moderate alcohol and good acidity. Half of the grapes were wholecluster fermented which adds a bit of peppery complexity.
