Amador County, CA

Our wines are characterized by a fruit forward nature to both the aroma and flavor that provides a good representation of the grape used to make the wine. This is followed by a depth, richness, and complexity that is enhanced by aging in small oak barrels. Our wines finish with a smooth aftertaste where the tannins are soft and mature. My mantra as a winemaker is to pack as much flavor and character into a wine as possible without stepping over the line and making a wine so tannic that aging is required to balance and round the wine.

black raspberry, dark cherry, and boysenberry aromas. round and luscious with succulent red currants, raspberry and deeply toasted almost smoky oak on the palate. exceptional body  with mature, integrated tannins and an ultra smooth, velvety texture.
