Our Wines

Terroir Collection is an extremely limited-production series of wines offered exclusively to members. Different from VGS, Terroir Collection wines are sourced from specific Appellations we feel possess a unique character and distinctive personality that demand to be bottled independently revealing the pure expression of its terroir!

2016
GSC (Grenache/Syrah/Cinsault)

Fountain Grove District

First release of this Southern Rhône Valley inspired stunner! Châteauneuf-du-Pape meets the New World!

This unique red blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault is really spectacular!

At first glance, the vibrant and brilliant ruby color shines in your glass. The nose is full, rich and at the same time light, generous and extremely seductive. Starting with raspberries and strawberry pie with a maple brown sugar crumble crust it moves to white pepper, pink peppercorns, candied violets, red licorice, and eucalyptus.

In the mouth, the wine sits remarkably: it is, at the same time, full bodied and light. This is the tiny 1% of Cinsault contribution to this blend: it brings lightness and keeps the wine in perfect balance. It comes to play the referee between the Syrah and the Grenache, the big guys, and mellow them out adding so much elegance.

Making this wine, and creating blends like “GSC”, makes our job really FUN and in awe of what we can achieve with countless blending trials. I can’t wait to hear your comments as I am sure you are going to fall hard for this beauty!

Allocated exclusively to wine club members.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Mount Veeder, Napa Valley

This is the inaugural release of the Terroir Collection Cabernet Sauvignon!

We are excited to share with our members, a new series of small production, single appellation wines focused on highlighting the purest expression of the chosen appellations terroir.

In the cellar, we taste each barrel often, sometimes weekly and there are certain barrels that “speak” to us and have a unique individuality that needs to be recognized and put aside for individual consideration. In 2015, we made the decision to do just that, to mark these barrels that show the purest expression of terroir and best represent their “place of birth”.

For 2015, we selected Mount Veeder, our home, to launch the Terroir Collection series of wine. Vibrant aromas of damp forest floor, chaparrel, camphor and graphite fill your nose. Additionally, blueberry, blackberry, lavender, and sage are present, followed by notes of vanilla and hazelnut.

In the mouth the wine is right there. The tannins are well ripened and silky smooth. The finish is impressively long…this wine stays and does not leave you. Blueberries and lavendar envelop your palate leaving an impression of relative lightness for a medium-full bodied wine. You are going to love it!

Allocated exclusively to wine club members.
