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.
Noted British wine writer Hugh Johnson proclaimed our previous vintage Dry Riesling to be our “best-made wine” and found this crisp and food-friendly Riesling “fresh, fruity, clean and very, very appealing.”
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!

This botrytised White Riesling, grown at our Henry Ranch vineyard in Carneros, was harvested a full two months after the regular harvest. The grapes were fully infected with the “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), a fungus which naturally increases sugars. Depending on the conditions, botrytis can be either beneficial or devastating to grapes. (375ml half-bottle)
Quaglia Vineyard is actually two separate vineyards here in St. Helena, about a mile apart. One parcel is on Spring Street on the west side of town; the other is on Pratt Avenue, just north of town. Both have been in the Quaglia family for more than seventy years and both sport beautiful and gnarly old head-pruned vines, some over eighty years old.
Angelica is a fortified wine traditionally associated with the Mission grape, from which it was made since the early days of California winemaking. V. Sattui instead uses the fresh juice of the Muscat of Alexandria grape and enhances it with brandy.
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.
The grapes for this wine come from Preston Vineyard located in the Rutherford Appellation, an area where some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley is grown. The region is known for its gravelly soils which produce rich and opulent red wines with fine-grained tannins and incredible complexity.
This 2010 vintage has a fragrant ripe boysenberry bouquet and a flavor profile of ripe blackberry with a little black cherry and hints of sweet cola. There's just enough oak in the prolonged finish which, unlike many Russian River Zins that can be big and high-alcohol, is silky smooth.
From its layered aromas of oak-sweetened cherries to its very smooth, neatly proportioned flavors of green olive, currant and tobacco, this engaging Merlot hits all the right varietal marks, then continues smoothly with a supple, round and lingering finish. Enjoy now with all manner of rich meat dishes.
