This Rutherford-bred Cabernet from the tiny Morisoli Vineyard, shows beautiful fruit ripeness, seamless texture and the power and elegance so characteristic of this stellar vineyard.
Many people at first wondered why we planted several acres of Merlot in our cool Carneros Henry Ranch vineyard, an area proven for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (which we also planted.)
The ‘09 Napa Valley Cabernet is a perfect example of concentration and intensity. Dark, brooding and inky, this blend of Cabernets from Stagecoach, Henry, Preston and Vittorio’s Vineyards—along with 3% Petit Verdot —even at 3½ years old, is still coming out of its barrel-bound slumber. The aromas of black fruits are clearly there in the nose, promising richer rewards with additional aging. The ripe fruit flavors are simmering under a blanket of moderate tannins from 18 months in new French oak.

This is a deeply refined Syrah, brimming with blueberry, pepper and spice. Lush and with supple tannins, it’s a complex wine to be enjoyed now and over the next three or years!

A lush and fruity dry rosé blend of Grenache (36%), Syrah (34%) and old-vine Carignane (30%) similar to the rosé wines of Provence. With its fresh raspberry fruit aromas combined with ripe cherry flavors, this delicately balanced wine with lively acidity pairs nicely with most appetizers, roasted meats and savory cheeses.
Carneros has been called the Burgundy of California because the two Burgundian grape varieties—Chardonnay and Pinot Noir—achieve exquisite flavors in this region.
This full-bodied, dark berried, mouth-filling Cabernet is sourced from the Preston Vineyard located in the Rutherford Appellation. The region is known for its gravelly soils which produce rich, opulent red wines with fine-grained tannins and incredible complexity.
125th Celebration Blend - Special Bottling
Our hearty blend of mostly Zinfandel is ideal for mid-week or anytime enjoyment with pasta, pizza or burgers, and it has a price that is most affordable. But this has much more going on than any table red; this is a serious wine. And one taste confirms this. Its ripe, plummy flavors explode in the mouth with straightforward, refreshing fruitiness, all rounded out with hints of vanilla and spicy oak in the finish.
From the Dry Creek Valley renowned for world-class Zinfandels. This Zinfandel is solidly built, yet shows remarkable constraint and a slight edge of spiciness.
Pilgrim Vineyard is a 12-acre parcel in the Lodi AVA (American Viticultural Area,) owned and tended by Joel and Martine Herche, who, after moving sixteen times in sixteen years due to education job changes, settled on this neglected vineyard and named it for John Bunyan’s work, The Pilgrim’s Progress. The vines are certified to be at least 56 years old but are reputed to be much older.
