All aboard the Vermentino Train!

If there were such a thing as a Loire Valley style of Vermentino, this  2019 would be it. Vermentino is known for its expressive floral and fruity aromas and flavors. However, even the best Italian versions don't have this type of acidity, and we aren't afraid to show it. Fermented in stainless steel, aged in concrete this is an intense, yet well balanced white that will surely encourage others to plant in Dry Creek Valley.

2019 is the strongest vintage we have had for this outstanding Mediterranean white grape we first planted in 2004. Some fine tuning in the vineyard (crop thinning) and a slightly warmer late-growing season resulted in a fuller bodied wine that retains its mineral character and acidity. Like our Vermentino, this 2019 GB was fermented in stainless steel and aged in concrete tanks. Only 364 cases produced.

Vineyard pedigree matters, even with Rosé. We make our Rosé from 21 year-old Grenache Noir and Mourvedre, organically farmed. At the risk of sounding elitist, a Rosé is NOT a classic Rosé when made from just any grape variety. For us, Southern French Rosé, which is made from Grenache and Mourvedre reigns supreme. We have only made rosé from our estate Grenache and Mourvedre since 2002. Our 2019 Rosé really shows the bright intense fruit and spice of Grenache combined with the body and texture of Mourvedre. If you are a fan of Bandol wines and want to try a California version, this is your gig.

88% Grenache, 12% Mourvedre.

A hand-bottled 1.5L Magnum of our 2019 Rosé. This item ships separately in a custom shipping box.

Barbera is definitely one of our favorite varieties. Our 2018 comes from two clones of Barbera planted in 1998 and 2007 on our estate. Our selective approach in the vineyard combined with a great growing season resulted in a wine that resembles high-end Barbera from Asti. Cooler than normal weather in late August, early September resulted in enhanced aromas and fruit. This wine reminds me of our very successful 2015 vintage. Drink now and over the next 2 to 3 years.

From three clones of Grenache Noir we planted in 1998. Our crop thinning regimen, combined with cooler August weather resulted in a very aromatic, intense and complex southern Rhône-style wine. Medium to full-bodied, this is an excellent example of why we think Dry Creek is ideal for Grenache.

This Segromigno Lot 1 features Montepulciano (55%) in a more prominent role than any previous vintage. As such it shows darker fruit with more depth and richness than our  Segromigno Lot 2. Montepulciano and Sangiovese seem perfect for each other no matter the blend, as this wine is classic Central Italy. It should age nicely over the next 3 to 5 years.

2017 marks our 20th vintage making Zinfandel from our estate. This 2017 Zin embodies how much we have learned over the years. It comes from our Primitivo-clone vineyard planted next to the winery in 1998. Vine age, combined with our crop-thinning regimen renders a deep and structured Zin. Additionally, we blend Petite Sirah for body and structure, while we use Barbera to add freshness from acidity. I'm really proud of this wine and how far we have come since 1997.

This 100% Syrah comes from 4 small vineyard blocks planted on our winery estate property in 1998. The clones are 174, 877, 383 and our Shiraz #1 clone planted near Dry Creek.  the cool August weather in 2017 allowed us to make a Syrah in the style of a Crozes Hermitage or St. Joseph, meaning it has deep color, blueberry and blackberry fruit, with a hint of pepper and structure from tannin and acidity. It is an excellent example of how you can make compelling Syrah when you limit the yields in the vineyard. Don't let the expressive fruit fool you, this wine will age well for many years (4 to 7). Unfined and unfiltered.

"Dry Creek Valley’s Unti was an early advocate of California Rhône wines, and winemaker Jason Valenti continues to raise the bar with this racy 2017 Syrah, which has accents of smoke and cracked pepper."  

WS 91 pt. review: An appealingly racy quality lends oomph to the refined black cherry and berry thicket notes. Accents of smoke and cracked pepper build toward an expansive finish. Drink now through 2027. 475 cases made.—Tim Fish

Cuvee Foudre is our statement about the possibility of making a Rhone blend worthy of the best Chateaunef du Papes. Not surprisingly it has been our most critically acclaimed wine. The 2017 CF, comes three of our best vineyard blocks planted in 1998 - Grenache Noir Alban clone, the original Mourvedre and Syrah clone 383.  The Grenache Alban clone is always our most expressive, while the Mourvedre and Syrah play a key role in giving this wine a complexity and structure.  Like all of our 2017s this CF 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.

This 100% Montepulciano comes from our two best vineyard blocks planted in 2005 and 2007. Our 2017 is perhaps our most intense and complex Montepulciano ever. Expressive aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cassis and semi-sweet chocolate will have you swirling and sniffing this wine longer than you might expect.  The fruit is backed up with a wine that posseses excellent richness, tannin structure and the right dose of acidity. For those who doubt Montepulciano is capable of making a wine with an ageworthy wine with  elegance and grace-this bud's for you!

100% Syrah

Benchland Syrah, our oldest vineyard, continues to produce some of our nicest fruit. Like most of our 2017 reds, our venerable Benchland Syrah shows the heightened aromas and bright fruit that characterizes this vintage.

Maybe it is too soon to use “Old Vine” on the label. But it is not premature to appreciate the pedigree of an older vineyard - precise aromas and flavors with depth and structure. Our 2017 is just beginning to show all of this, while it has the structure to age well over the next 5 to 8 years. It is a good look for the wine that started it all for Unti.

100% Aglianico from a two acre parcel planted in 2013.

Our 2017 Aglianico, like the previous year has more than exceeded our lofty expectations. The wine is dark and firm, as one might expect with incredible perfume depth and complexity. As with our other Italian varietal reds, Aglianico has a nice balance of natural acidity which leads us to believe it is more than an excellent choice for a cultivar in our AVA. It is amazing wine that will age nicely over the next 7 to 10 years. Dry Creek Taurasi anyone?

Our late harvest Muscat comes from a tiny section of vines near our Vermentino and Fiano. The wine is made in the style of a Muscat de Beaumes de Venise- meaning it was fortified with brandy and aged in stainless steel drums. A great afternoon dessert wine.
