2016 Calistoga Grenache
Few things better embody T-Vine than our Calistoga Grenache from the Frediani Vineyard. Jim Frediani is third generation grape whisperer. He knows everything there is to know about the farmin’ business. His Calistoga vineyard sits across the valley floor and basks in the harsh daytime sun before temperatures plummet at night. These variances stress our little Grenache friends, but it makes them stronger, more robust and a bit more intense than your typical Grenache.
The 2016 vintage stopped us in our tracks. In the glass, this wine has rich aromas of ripe red fruit mixed with bay leaf and clove which move to flavors of rhubarb crisp and raspberries that burst in your mouth. Fine-grained tannins and moderate acidy provides a balanced finish that would pair well with Duck Cassoulet or Thanksgiving Dinner.
2016 Father & Son California Red Wine
Father & Son tells the story of how we grew up—a farm kid, twelve years old, learning to drive that '47 Ford 2N tractor with dear old dad. The second bottle in our portrait series, Father & Son is a blend of 47% Carignane, 23% Petite Sirah, 14% Charbono, 6% Zinfandel, 5% Grenache, 4% Syrah and 1% Barbera.
Sourced from heritage vineyard sites, this elegant red is bursting with notes of bright and juicy tart cherries with layers of cedar, herbs, and fall spices.
2016 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
Home to some of the world's most renowned Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley was built by multi-generations of farmers whose commitment to the land still shows today. Driving the dusty backroads of this region, vineyards of gnarly old-vine zin beckon to tell their story.
Always on the hunt for new, exciting vineyards, when we came across the LeVois Vineyard in Dry Creek, we knew we had found something profoundly special. A beautifully terraced vineyard very close to Lake Sonoma, Le Vois sits at an elevation of 950 ft in an amphitheater configuration which allows for a range of afternoon sun exposures and ensures a wine with great complexity and a range of flavors. We have been working with this stunning site in preparation for the 2016 vintage.
Our inaugural vintage, the 2016 brings together everything you'd expect from Dry Creek Valley. Brilliant ruby in color, fresh aromas of summer peaches, vanilla, and cinnamon entice while flavors of ripe fruit, caramel, and blackberry jam keep you coming back for more. Great length and richness on the finish allow for a long, slow savoring of the wine.
Close your eyes and luxuriate in a road trip to Dry Creek Valley.
