We're super excited for you to try our Fall Releases! We've got two new wines for you.
2019 Lamorinda AVA, Red Field Blend
This is the vineyard that produced the very first ever St. Romedius wine back in 2015. Located in the heart of the East Bay hills, in the Lamorinda AVA (Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga), the vineyard sits on the site of the historic Buckeye Ranch. It's a small hillside vineyard with three varietals planted; Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Zinfandel. In 2019 this vineyard site was hit really hard with powder mildew forcing us to thin a large amount of crop to save the quality fruit. While still holding on to it's typical deep color the wine is lighter on the palate than previous vintages. This vintage traded it's thick ripe fruit for more earthy dried floral, herbal, and leafy characters. There's a savory, almost smoked meat, character that drifts in and out of the glass as you taste. Much brighter acidity than previous years gives the wine a mouthwatering juiciness that, with the lighter body, opens it up to pairing with more than just steak and lamb. Try this with Mexican food, roast chicken, or some stinky cheeses.
2019 Napa Valley Merlot, Coombsville AVA
The merlot is a very limited production, with less than 25 cases bottled. But, what it lacks in production size it makes up form in deliciousness. The 2019 Merlot turned out absolutely fantastic! The fruit comes from a heritage vineyard in the Coombsville AVA first planted in 1868. The current vines are clone 3 on 5C rootstock, planted roughly 30 years ago. The wine is rich and bold with lots of fruit and spice and hints of licorice and tobacco. On the pallet it is full, but not drying. The wine has that wonderful herbal/leafy quality and a touch of oaky sweetness (only 30% new French Oak in the blend). We really love this! Our club members have already enjoyed the hell out of it, but now we're making it available to everyone!
