No additives

 

Our wines are made the natural way, in small, sustainably farmed batches with no additives. Our grapes are artfully honed from the finest vineyards, so once they hit the barrels, we let them do their thing with minimal intervention. It’s not the only way to make wine, but it’s the best.

No added sugar

You’re here to drink wine, not grape soda. No reason to artificially sweeten the best grapes Sonoma has to offer.

No added sulfites

With added sulfites, at best the flavor is dulled, at worst you feel it the next day—they’re what many blame for wine-induced headaches and hangovers.

 

All about the grapes

The first step in making a great wine is selecting which grapes to use. Our red blend consists of two of Sonoma's most respected and historically enjoyed grapes, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Zinfandel

Powerfully fruity and bold without being over tannic, a quintessential component in the modern California wine blend.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The world’s most popular wine grape - concentrated and rich with just enough grip.

 

Talking dirty

 

Soil is (literally) the foundational element that separates mediocre wines from the greats. When it comes to deciding where to grow our grapes, we must know our dirt.

Clay

Clay subsoil retains moisture and minerals, a savior in dry times. Some say that clay can add a profile to wines that is similar to the soil itself—thick, round, and generous.

Loam

A warm, soft, crumbly mix of sand, silt, and clay, loam is incredibly nutritious. When blended with other soils in the right amounts, it makes for powerful, voluptuous wines.

Alluvial

A gravely blend of soils that’s deposited over many years by running water and typically contains a lot of organic material left behind from the now-gone bodies of water.

Better than the last red!

I loved their Standard Red so wanted to try the new Usual Red. And it is even better! Brighter with some red fruit on the palate and still some age. This one is absolutely stellar.
