Rich and spicy, with dusty oak tannins and lingering fruit, this old vine Zin is grown right here in St. Helena. 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.
Sourced from old vines in the Sierra foothills, this fruit forward wine with subtle hints of raspberry, spice and earthy complexity combined with alluring sweet oak make for a perfect pairing with slow-roasted pork or braised short ribs.
A great vintage and an excellent location come together in this blend of three vineyards from the famed,cool-climate Russian River Valley, synonymous with the finest California Pinot Noir. Light, silky and smooth, the wine shows great fruit concentration—along with luscious violet, cocoa and refined spice— but also restraint, balance and a lengthy finish.
A limited-production Rhone Valley variety (thought to be introduced to the Rhone from Spain) with flavors of kirsh, jammy strawberries and hints of spice. Lighter in body, this wine will pair perfectly with comfort foods such as beef or lamb stew, French onion soup, goat cheese and brie.
