TASTING NOTES

We are the first winery in the U.S. to release this varietal that has been grown in France for hundreds of years. It’s got a great natural acidity, with citrus flavors of orange and key lime and with a honeyed beeswax finish. We find that it pairs well with fish (a natural with bouillabaisse!) and even shines with spicy foods.


VINEYARD NOTES

Harvested in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation, our grape clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region. Our climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhône with cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby giving our grapes their ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.


WINEMAKER NOTES

All of our grapes are estate grown, hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture their fresh, flavorful character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.
