This is the 6th vintage of our Lodi Native Marian’s Vineyard Zinfandel. A collaborative project I started with five other local winemakers to shine the spotlight on Lodi’s historic Zinfandel vineyards. We each choose an old zin vineyard, and make the wines in a non-interventionist style to highlight the unique attributes of each site.
Our 2nd vintage of this traditional "mixed blacks" grape. Alicante's dark color and intense fruit helped it rise to prominence in Portugal. Likewise, throughout California's history, Alicante has played a supporting role to Zinfandels and many mixed blacks vineyards. Inky dark in the glass, with dark fruit and plush tannins on the finish.
This Portuguese variety is very aromatically distinct revealing crushed berries, violets, and spicy undertones. The aromas follow through on the palate delivering a richly textured, delicious wine.
This is the 4th vintage of our Trousseau, a relatively obscure variety native to the Jura region of France. The 2017 Trousseau is characteristically light in color with a distinct spicy cherry quality. It’s very much on an ugly duckling variety – at first glance it doesn’t look like much, but after tasting it has depth of complexity.
This unique wine is dark, inky, and offers intense aromas of dark fruits mixed with spicy notes. It’s a lively wine with bright acidity and fresh berry flavors that should pair well with rustic country foods.
