Full-bodied. Concentrated. Opulent. These are some of the descriptors we often hear applied to our wines. However, we also hear the words elegant, balanced, complex. Yes, through hard work in the vineyard and winery, we believe you can have it all, the best of both worlds. Our approach to winemaking is simple, yet difficult. We prefer to intervene in nature’s process as little as possible. We often rely on uninoculated fermentations and use minimal new oak. We rarely fine or filter. However, we are not dogmatic and will intervene if we feel it results in a higher quality wine while still remaining true to the vineyard.

2010 Vintage

Coolest, foggiest summer on record. Mildew and Botrytis pressure extremely high. Severe heat and low humidity on August 23rd and 24th decimated some varieties, especially Zinfandel, Carignane, and Alicante Bouschet in valley floor vineyards. Rhone varieties and most whites fared well, producing well-balanced, flavorful wines.
