Our third vintage from the Buckeye Ranch Vineyard is ready for your holiday table. This field blend is composed of 52% Petite Sirah and 48% Syrah.
TASTING NOTES Deep, dark purple. Hints of red and blue berries, baking spices, and dried flowers on the nose. A powerful entry with a rich structure and ripe fruit on the pallet. Juicy and chewy through the finish with lingering fruit flavors. Enjoying this wine is almost as good as locking eyes with George Clooney from accross a crowded room and him breaking just a hint of a smile that makes your legs go weak. ALMOST. THAT. GOOD.
Appellation: Lamorinda AVA, Contra Costa County, California
Type: Blend of 52% Petite Sirah and 48% Syrah
% Alcohol: 15.0%
Production: 3 barrels
2017 Lamorinda AVA Red Blend
We loved the Dry Muscat Canelli so much that we couldn't allow ourselves to blend it all into the 2018 White Wine. We chose to bottle a limited number as a standalone Dry Muscat, which we only have a couple bottles of left. This wine is like listening to your favorite song with the volume cranked way up. The intensity of the fruit is incredible, while still being refreshing on the pallet. The last opportunity to purchase this wine is the White Wine 5+1 Pack. You get 5 bottles of our 2018 White Wine and 1 Bottle of the 2018 Dry Muscat.
100% Muscat Canelli fermented to dryness in neutral French oak barrels. Native fermentation and no additions except sulfur. 24 hours of skin contact before pressing. Aged sur lees for 8 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fewer than 100 bottles were bottled.
Tasting Notes: Fully dry with no perceptible residual sugar. Intensely floral nose with a silky yet juicy pallet. Mouthwatering through the finish with layers of fruit that seem to linger on and on.

Our goal is to make wines that taste delicious while being true to our beliefs of intervening as little as possible in the natural progression of grape to wine. We are constantly striving towards sourcing fruit that is farmed using sustainable or organic practices. In the cellar we take a minimal intervention approach, only doing things that benefit the health of the wine and not to manipulate the flavors towards a style that our vineyards are not naturally inclined to produce. Each year we are trying to move farther away from the use of commercial yeast and inorganic nutrients, as well as any type of fining or filtration.
We want to provide you with wines that we are proud to produce and wines you will be proud to uncork for friends and family.
We currently produce a White blend and Red Blend.
Our 2018 White Wine is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Dry Muscat Canelli. Perfect for warm weather and spicy foods, this wine is made from organically and sustainably grown fruit, spontaneously fermented in neutral oak barrels, and bottled without fining or filtration.
Our red blend is a single vineyard field blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Zinfandel from Buckeye Ranch. This small hillside vineyard is located in the Lamorinda AVA just 15 minutes from Berkeley, CA. The vineyard is harvested all at once and fermented together. Each varietal contributes an important layer to this elegant blend. The Syrah, gives the deep, smooth, rich fruit backbone to the wine while the Petite Sirah provides the tannic structure on which the rest of the wine is built. The Zinfandel adds the juicy, fruity, mouthwatering components that makes this wine so easy to keep pouring. This vineyard produces a wine that is big and luxurious, but it doesn't leave your pallet exhausted and abused like a big Napa Cabernet might.
