Our 2018 Montepulciano has expressive aromas of blackberry, blueberry cassis and semi-sweet chocolate. It is much more aromatic than you would expect from Montepulciano. Dark and full- bodied, this '18 MP has the tannin structure we expect in the most prestigious wines in Le Marche and Abruzzo. Our cool nights provide a little more acidity, making it a great wine with food. Don't let the fruit fool you. This wine will age gracefully over the next 5 to 8 years. Bring on Abruzzo's finest pasta!

This 2018 Grenache is a perfect example of what crop-thinning, combined with a great vintage, can do for this variety. Reminiscent of our stunning 2007 Grenache, this vintage is equally dark and concentrated. Intense aromas of pepper, raspberry, cherry, blackberry, tar, licorice, and dried herbs (enough with the descriptors!) are followed by a lush but firmly structured wine, balanced by nice acidity. While expressive and fruity, our 2018 Grenache has a sneaky tannin structure, which will allow it to improve over the next 3 to 5 years.

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.

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 Primitovo-clone Zinfandel is one of the most intensely fruity wines ever to come from this 20-year-old vineyard. As always, we blend Petite Sirah for tannin and Barbera for acidity. Much as despise using the old school term, "brambly" - our'18 Zin has it in spades. While it is nice now, it will age very well over the next 2 to 4 years.

Each year that goes by, we are more impressed with the Sangiovese from this vineyard block. The wine shows classic Southern Tuscany character- deep cherry, dried herbs with a solid tannin structure. While our 2019 is a full-bodied style of Sangiovese, it has enough fruit to be enjoyed young. In Montalcino terms, our 2019 Sangiovese has the fruit of a Rosso di Montalcino with some of the tannin structure of a Brunello. It is already showing well but will definitely improve over the next 3 to 6 years.

Planted in 1991, 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.

Planted in 1991, our Benchland Syrah is now one of, if not THE oldest Syrah vineyard in Sonoma County. As such, the vines are slowing down in a good way-meaning the crop level balanced with its root development, resulting in 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.

2018 will go down as one of the great vintages of this century, which is quite evident in our Sangiovese West Terrace. For the past ten years we labelled our best Sangiovese “Riserva” because it was clearly the best lot of Sangiovese we made. Well, truth be told, our Riserva comes from one, ten-row section of the vineyard George planted in 1992. It is the west hill side of that steep, terraced vineyard. Hence the name change.
Year after year, Jason and I are amazed at the quality coming from this section of the vineyard.Always great color and structure (both tannin and acid), with classic Sangiovese character. Our West Terrace Sangiovese has helped me understand why producers in Montalcino to release their Brunellos in the fifth year after the vintage. If you have past vintages of our Riserva, you won't want to miss this 2018 rendition.

We have been making dry, Provencal-style Rosé since 2002. Our 2020 Petit Rosé is 100% Grenache Noir from 20-year-old vines grown on our estate. It is bright, crisp and light on its feet. It really shows why Grenache is the preferred choice for making dry rosé in Provence...at a nice price.
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.

2019 Segromigno is the closest we have come to making a full-bodied, modern-style Chianti Classico. It is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Montepulciano. The bright Sangiovese cherry and fragrant fruit is balanced with tannin and structure from Montepulciano. If we made more, it would undoubtedly be our most popular wine. This 2019 shows why.
