2016 Lodi Zinfandel
Our first vintage from this vineyard! Cherry House Vineyard, home to beautiful 47-year-old vines sits on the west side of Lodi in the Mokelumne River AVA and does not drink like most Lodi Zins
Owned and farmed by the Perlegos Brothers, the same family that own and farm the famed Stampede Vineyard for the likes of Maitre de Chai, Bedrock Wines, and Scholium Wines, the fine sandy loam soils are lighter in color and have much less clay than other Lodi Zinfandel growing areas. Truly, this vineyard is one-of-a-kind.
And...so is the wine. Our 2016 vintage has a gorgeously perfumed nose, redolent of purple flowers and wisteria violets dancing with bright cherries, whisked together by whiffs of manzanita and pepper. Light to mid-weight on the palate, bolstered by plenty of acid and brightness with really well-integrated tannin. 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 Frediani Zinfandel
Of all the vineyard blocks we work with each year, none have a greater personal meaning to us than Zinfandel grown by Jim Frediani. You see, Jim has more vineyard knowledge in the cuff of his jeans than we could ever attain in a lifetime – and his 60-year old head-trained Zinfandel vines produce fruit so amazingly intense and pure that we feel blessed to be the ones to capture this magic in a bottle.
If you want big Zin, you'll need to find some that have been through the crucible. Jim's valley-floor Zinfandel vineyard is bombarded with brutal heat during the daytime and chilled with frigid colds at night. This daily variance stresses the vines and produces fruit with unrivaled intensity.
On the 2016 vintage, you'll find black tea and dried cherry dominating the nose upfront intertwined with notes of tobacco leaf and subtle hints of lavender, cassis and bramble berry. Fat and juicy in the mouth, you'll find a dynamic contrast of cherry notes and an earthy savoriness tied together nicely with citrus pith. The delightfully lingering finish will keep you coming back for more.
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.
