After a successful first year, we're back with new vintages of our two foundational wines. Our "crisp yet round" Chardonnay and "lively" red blend are exactly what we like to drink; we hope you enjoy them as well!
Our vineyard sources reflect our wine-making ethos, with grapes grown by friends and family throughout the region.
2015 Carneros Chardonnay
Our second release of our best-selling Chardonnay; this wine went fast last year so get it before it’s gone! Sourced from the Wilson Ranch in the heart of Sonoma, Carneros AVA, the vines are hand-tended by friends from high school. Farmed sustainably with minimal input and producing an average yield of just under 5 pounds per vine, these grapes showcase the best quality and characteristics of the region. The Chardonnay for non-Chardonnay drinkers: aromatics of spring blossoms and fresh citrus on the nose leads to a mix of tropical flavors and bright lemon zest on the palate. A balanced, crisp yet creamy finish leaves you wanting more! 50% malolactic fermentation, aged for 9 months in 25% new French oak.

2014 Napa Valley 8687 Proprietary Red
Building on our mantra of “waste not-want not” and “blend what we’ve got” – Our Napa Valley Red Wine combines Cabernet Sauvignon from the Particelli vineyard in St. Helena with Syrah and Merlot grown on the Shifflett Ranch & Vineyards, our family’s property located in the western foothills of the Oak Knoll District. The wine is a beautiful ruby red color; a nose rich with ripe red fruit and baking spice. On the palate, black and red currants, dark cherries, and a touch of cracked pepper finish with fine-ground tannins and a lively acidityy. Aged in 25% new French oak for 21 months.
