Fruit and finesse
This vintage is bright and fruity, bursting with flavors of black cherry and muddled raspberry. Aged lightly in oak, the fruit character shines through with just a touch of fennel on the finish.
100% Mendocino County
There are a variety of winds that sweep through the mountains into the central valleys. Those winds bring cool nights that give us great color, acid, and freshness.
The cooler temperatures in the valley allow for a slower ripening of the fruit, which brings fresher and brighter flavors.
0 grams of sugar, real wine
Our wines are made the natural way: in small, sustainably farmed batches with nothing added to artificially preserve, or augment the taste. There’s no need. Our grapes are carefully sourced for taste, 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 Usual way.
Great grapes or go home
The first, and most crucial, step in making great wine is selecting great grapes. The red blend combines some of the best grapes Mendocino has to offer.
Soil is quite literally the foundational element to everything we do. Healthy soil makes for thriving vines, but it can also add nuances to taste.
It’s great for every day but not for someone who truly enjoys great wine.
FedEx wouldn’t deliver outside of working hours, so my wine never showed up. Such a waste. It took the convenience out of ordering online.
I love this red! Now I can’t drink “regular” red wine. And the bottles are just the right size (wellll...technically a little more than I should have, but I figure lower sugar and lower alcohol mean I can drink more!)
I purchased the red for my friend’s birthday. She lived it. This wine is an unique gift for anybody who loves wines.
