Cabernet Sauvignon
Scherrer Vineyard, 2014
This is a unique and exotic expression of Alexander Valley benchland Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged in small French oak cooperage for about thirty months, with infrequent racking. Bottled without fining or filtration to respect the expression of the site, this 100% varietal wine enjoys both a youthful suppleness and the structure necessary for lengthy storage.

Grenache
Kick Ranch Vineyard, 2015
Kick Ranch, in the eastern edge of the Rincon Valley, is becoming known for its Grenache and Syrah wines as well as Petite Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. It is in one of the cooler places that this variety performs well in.

Syrah
Calypso Vineyard, 2013
My favorite syrahs tend to come from sites where the grapes may not be able to ripen to the same degree every vintage. Calypso Vineyard, perched in a slightly warmer, higher site inside this very cool area, is one of those. Its is farmed practically single–handedly by owner Otis Holt, and is truly a labor of love.

Zinfandel
‘The Hill’, 2015
A south-facing hillside, this parcel of Zinfandel was planted in the early 1970s at the Scherrer Vineyard. The soil is very 'light' and fluffy with little clay. It's remarkable how vines that receive the full brunt of the sometimes violent sun in late summer can respond with such a gentle voice.

2017 Futures
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.

Pinot Noir
Gunsalus Vineyard, 2014
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.

Pinot Noir
Sonoma County, 2015
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.

Pinot Noir
‘Big Brother,’ 2014
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.
