Be a Wine Hero!  Rescue One of These Wines!

Every year, a small portion of our barrels go homeless.  I know it’s sad, but here’s your chance to give some of these wine a good home.  Become a wine hero and rescue one of wines today!  Here’s a list of our wines that we’ll be making this fall that are looking for a loving home!

Premium Level (Good Dog!):

Sauvignon Blanc:  Bright, citrusy easy drinking white wine for all occasions (1/4 tank)

Moscato:  You’ve asked for it and here it is!  An incredibly aromatic wine with orange-blossom and honeysuckle notes.  (1/4 and 1/2 tank)

Super Premium (Better Dog!):

Left Bank Blend:  Classic Cabernet-dominate Bordeaux style blend of Cab/Merlot/Malbec.  Just like its big brother in our Ultra Premium selection, but a bit less expensive. (1/4 or 1/2 barrel)

The Prisoner Blend:  Spectacular Zinfandel/Cabernet/Petite Sirah blend made imitating the great David Phinney wine.  Great medium-plus bodied wine (1/4 barrel)

Ultra Premium (Best Dog Ever!):

Merlot:  There’s nothing better than a great Merlot, contrary to what Paul Giamatti said in the movie Sideways!  Fruit forward with red-fruit flavors and a silky velvety finish. If you like red, but not tannic ones (that is, wines that really dry out your mouth), this is the wine for you. (1/4 barrel)

Syrah:  My all-time favorite single varietal wine, Syrah is a big, bold and beautiful wine.  Full of fruit dark fruit with an incredible depth of flavor and a bit of spice.  It’s our go-to steak-on-the-grill wine! (1/4 and 1/2 barrel)

Cabernet Sauvignon:  Fabulous Napa Cabernet from the vineyards of the wolrd-famous grape grower Jan Krupp, founder of Stagecoach Vineyards.  A beautiful well rounded Cabernet, intense, fruit-forward yet supple and not overpoweringly tannic.  (1/4 barrel)

Left Bank Blend:  A left bank Bordeaux-style blend containing 65% Cabernet. 25% Merlot and 10% Malbec.  Think of a bold Cabernet but with a smoother finish from the Merlot and a touch of fruit from the Malbec. One of our most spectacular wines! (1/4 barrel)

Magic Barrel:  Every year we make a barrel of wine with whatever Ultra Premium grapes are left over.  We have made some truly wonderful blends this way and they’re always a hit.  This year is looking like a predominately Syrah and Cabernet blend with maybe a hint of Malbec.  This will be a lot like our popular Ozzie Blend, which is typically Syrah/Cabernet. (1/4, 1/2 and full barrel).

Tignanello Clone (New This Year!):  Every year we make a Super Premium Super Tuscan blend, which has become our go-to wine with pizza/pasta.  This year, however, we’re kicking up a notch and cloning a Tignanello Super Tuscan at our Ultra Premium level.  Tignanello is about a $150/bottle Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Antinori.  As a third generation Italian-American winemaker, I’m really excited to be imitating this truly spectacular wine from Tuscany.  Please join us in this unique winemaking adventure.  (1/4 and 1/2 barrels available)
