Our third vintage of Aglianico is very much in the style of the great DOCG, Taurasi. Very deep color with incredible aromas of dried rose petals, prunes and spice. The wine is quite full-bodied with excellent fruit and the tannin structure to age at least 7 to 10 years.

This 2019 Barbera is a bit more classic Unti, meaning it has exotic fruit and a bit more concentration than its predecessor, the 2018. This style is quite similar to the full-bodied Barberas from Italy’s DOCGs in Asti, Monferrato, and Nizza—deep color, bright fruit and solid acidity.

Our 2018 Syrah is our version of a super-charged Saint Joseph from the Northern Rhone. Deep color, intense violet, blackberry and blueberry aromas are followed by a juicy but structured Syrah. While this wine has more finesse than the Benchland Syrah, it has the tannin to age well over the next 5 to 8 years.

Our 2018 Zinfandel is one of the most intensely fruity vintages from our winery. We believe in the local tradition of blending Petite Sirah with Zin. It adds valuable tannin structure and depth. The Barbera keeps the wine from being too clunky by adding freshness. This '18 Zin is dark, full-bodied and juicy, with flavors of boysenberry and pepper. Our red wines are unfiltered, and please note that some bottles may contain sediment, which is natural and healthy from the lees of the wine. We believe this enhances mouthfeel and offers a protective quality for aging. Drink over the next 3-5 years.

Wine Spectator: 90 Points — "Ripe but packs zesty power, with wild berry, roasted sage and cracked pepper flavors that finish with medium-grained, briary tannins. Drink now through 2028. 1,175 cases made. From California."
Cuvée Foudre is our attempt at making a Rhône-blend worthy of the best Châteaunef-du-Papes. Not surprisingly, it has been our most critically-acclaimed wine. The Grenache Alban clone is always our most expressive, while the Mourvedre and Syrah play key roles in giving this wine complexity (raspberry/cherry, pepper, licorice, tar) and tannin structure. Like all of our 2018 wines, this Cuvée Foudre has a brighter fruit component to go along with the depth and richness you've come to expect from one of our best wines. And yes, this wine will age well over the next 6 to 10 years.

Wine Spectator: 91 Points — "Well-defined and briary, with cherry and guava flavors laced with forest floor and smoked pepper, finishing with fine- grained tannins. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2028."
Almost 30 years since their original planting, our Benchland Syrah vines are slowing down, in a good way. The vines’ crop level is more in balance with its root development, resulting in more consistent, high-quality fruit. Combined with an even ripening vintage like 2018, you have one of the best wines from this vineyard. Intense color and fruit, with a distinct savory character you’ve come to love from in this wine. This 2018 has the depth and structure found in our 2016, 2012, and 2007, rewarding those who aged them.
