2022 Grand Viognier
13.6% Alc. ~ $31
Our very first Grand Viognier because it’s barrel fermented and barrel aged. Unfortunately, in 2022 we couldn't make Chardonnay because our grapes froze due to a late frost event. Viognier is an aromatic and bold white grape that is fruit forward with a mineralogy on the finish. Aged in 66% new water bent French oak barrels for 9 months to compliment the bold fruit and add to a big mouthfeel and texture with Malolactic fermentation for a creamy and buttery mouthfeel. This Grand Viognier is full bodied and aromatic with a palate of stone fruit, apricot, French oak vanilla, and minerality finish.
2021 Petite Sirah
13.9% Alc. ~ $33
Our 2021 Petite Sirah is a full-bodied, fruity but not sweet wine with approachable tannins. It is well balanced with lower alcohol for a Petite Sirah. Aged in French oak for 20 months, 33% new specialty barrels, leaving very smooth silky tannins and mouthfeel. This Petite Sirah has a good balance of tannin to acidity. On the nose is fruit with floral and herbal notes in the background. A palate of dark fruits with tertiary flavors of dark chocolate, black tea and a hint of pepper on the finish. This wine is built to age gracefully and to drink now and is best served with bolder foods.
2020 “Foxy Lady” Old Vine Zin
15.2% Alc. ~ $37
Our 2020 Foxy Lady Old Vine Zin is terroir driven from one of Amador county’s oldest Zinfandel vineyards, planted from 1800’s Zinfandel cuttings, from Fox Creek Vineyard. Foxy is a complex wine of black cherry, sweet baking spice, coconut and maple from specialty American oak barrels. Foxy has an aromatic intensity about it, almost perfume like, with a hint of pepper on the finish.
