Sonoma County, 2012
A few barrels from the Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon harvest spoke neither of the individual site, or the appellation, but insisted on a place of their own. This harmonious wine with good varietal character should give substantial pleasure without significant bottle age — two to five years from the vintage should be sufficient.
Scherrer Vineyard, 2015
This is a rich and complex expression of Chardonnay from the Scherrer Vineyard. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed to French oak cooperage, where primary and malolactic fermentation occurred. All of these elements were allowed to integrate during its more than yearlong residence in wood. It was bottled without fining or filtration to respect both its delicacy and its more substantial qualities.
Russian River Valley, 2013
From the cooler parts of the Russian River Valley, this Syrah demonstrates the finer qualities of the Syrah grape. Redolent of black pepper, violets, and a mysterious earthiness, it has sufficient restraint to be fantastic when paired with food — yet it offers surprising depth as well.
Zinfandel Futures are offered for a limited time every July and August. This is an opportunity to pre-order a case at a discount before the wine is bottled and released March of next year. This model helped us finance the winery in the early days creating much needed cash flow. We've continued the tradition as a thank you to all of our direct customers that continue to make it possible to do what we love. Shale Terrace is a small portion of the family vineyard and supplies are limited to 1 case per person. Orders that include Shale Futures will be processed in two different waves. Those of you that have purchased Shale Terrace before, will have "First Crack" access and your orders will be processed first in the order received until July 30. All others have the opportunity to make orders which will be placed on the "Wish List" They will be held and processed in the order received after July 30 as long as inventory is available. Futures offering expired August 31.
Gunsalus Vineyard, 2013
From the cooler area of the Russian River Valley, this Pinot Noir exhibits the characteristic flavors of Green Valley wine grapes — bright red fruits with a soft earthiness and elegance. The wine was made from a single clone — Dijon 777 — grown on a hillside block in Goldridge/West Sebastopol loam soils, and bottled without fining of filtration.
Sonoma County, 2014
Pinot Noir from Sonoma County varies in its expression according to where it is grown. This wine exhibits the sassafras character of coastal Pinot Noirs, as well as the cola of those from the area between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. Moderately structured, it has a central core of red fruits and lightly toasty oak that anchor these coastal and inland elements. It should be at its best two to six years after the vintage.
‘Big Brother,’ 2013
It isn’t easy for a Pinot Noir to be extremely generous while still maintaining the delicacy unique to the variety. This is one of those. Blended from a vineyard in Annapolis, which provided the generosity, and from Bodega, which completed the balancing act, it should satisfy lovers of ‘big’ wines and delicate wines with equal facility.
