2014 Shale Peak VineyardsTracing back to the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, Zinfandel has a long California history. Grown on hillside blocks the Shale Peak Solano County Zinfandel shows bright red fruit flavors and a pepper spice tannin, classic to the varietal. This is a dry rendition of Zinfandel, not a big jam ball.Fermented on indigenous vineyard yeasts and aged in neutral French oak barrels, the vineyard is allowed to express itself fully in the bottle. Small amounts of Petite Sirah have been blended to add textural nuance.
2016 King Andrews VineyardsAn Iberian by nature, Albarino is Spain's number one white grape and white wine. It found its way to Suisun Valley in several locations but the McMullin Block planting is 100% estate fruit.Picked consistently to display the bright acidity and citric nature Albarino can bestow, this wine refreshes in summer as a stand alone, think summer time lemonade, yet pairs with shellfish and seafood extremely well year round.
2017 King Andrews VineyardsThe pride of Napa Valley is Cabernet Sauvignon. This version is from a vineyard planted high in the southeastern mountains of Napa at 2,000 feet and off the volcanic rock associated with Mt George in the Vaca Range. It is a softer Napa Cab than many that are grown in those volcanic rock soils, with fine grain tannin and bright but supple red fruit.Aged in new and neutral American oak barrels, enhances tannin bringing a soft and supple wine.Easily 5-10 years of aging an opportunity to let this wine unfold completely
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2017 King Andrews VineyardsPetite Sirah showed up in California in the 1800's, brought from France, but maybe by Italian immigrants. A cross between Syrah and Peloursin and correctly known as Durif. It has flourished since, with some ups and downs. It is decidedly on the upside today and likely the best suited red grape to grow in Suisun Valley. Supple tannin a signature here to what is the true trait, and wonderful bursts of dark berry fruit from the very cool marine air nights and early morning sunshine. Only 29 cases made so it will go fast
2018 King Andrews VineyardsA very limited production and different twist on producing Albarino that brings a fiz and spritz to this wonderful grape. Using the same lot of 2018 Albarino (with just a pinch of Riesling) , juice was bottled directly from tank at end of fermentation and sealed with a crown cap. This captures small amounts of CO2 in the bottle which become the bubbles on opening.The wine is completely unfiltered and unfined with no additions other than small amounts of sulfur dioxide at crush. Sediments from this process, specifically spent yeast cells, do bring a cloudiness to the glass, but also new flavors and textures not found in the typical bottling.
2018 King Andrews VineyardsA wild and freelance field blend of 5 red and one white grapes that form a highly unique blend that is delicious. Co fermented together in small vats and bottled early, this wine is lively and ready to rock. It will further evolve in bottle with age, but is highly drinkable now. The novelty of including Vermentino, an Italian white, calms the tannin and lifts the fruit notes of each red.
Red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Trousseau, Grenache and Vermentino
