2014 Inertia   Our 2014 Inertia is a Bordeaux blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot.   Bing cherries and chocolate impress immediately in the nose while plum and blueberries grace the supple palate.  French oak was used and it gives the wine a creamy richness.  Basically, it’s German Chocolate Cake in a glass.  Decadence is on display in the form of smooth tannins and a rich mouth feel.   Bottled unfiltered.

2014 Old Clone Zinfandel   Our Old Clone Zinfandel is an all estate wine made from 100% Zinfandel.  Fresh strawberries and holiday spice dominate the nose while raspberry jam and brambly notes flourish on the palate.   The wine finishes with dry peppery tannins, a signature of Foothill Zinfandel.  What we love most about this wine is how it displays our vineyard and the varietal so nicely.  Fresh. Spicy. Red Fruit.  We usually enjoy with Pizza and garlic flavored dishes.

The lovely 2015 growing season produced a Petite that is rich, opulent and ready to drink.  50% of the fruit for this wine came from our dry farmed vines, (which means we don’t irrigate them) so the wine is concentrated and full bodied, while the other 50% came ­from our head trained hill side vines, which imprints an aromatic spice character.   Dark spices of chocolate and pepper swirl out of the glass while blackberry pie and root beer await your palate.  Although being known as an age-worthy variety, this bottling is ready to enjoy now with hearty pastas, grilled meats or hard cheeses.  But don’t be afraid to age this one as well.  Treats will reveal themselves for years to come.

The 2016 Chardonnay is crafted with Chardonnay lovers in mind.  In developing our own technique (ask me sometime), we produce a rich, full bodied, and creamy Chardonnay (with a smattering of butter).  The 2016 is loaded with aromas of graham cracker, toast and vanilla, while in the mouth, ripe green apple and pineapple jam swoon the senses.  We consider this a young wine, so decant for half an hour to reveal its generous character.  For a real treat, stock up on several bottles and watch it age beautifully.

Our 2016 Solstice Sauvignon Blanc is a new world take on the varietal with a nod to classic examples.  This wine is fermented in 3 different vessels to showcase the complexities that SB can offer.  50% was fermented in a concrete egg, 30% fermented in new, large format french oak, and 20%, fermented in stainless steel.  This bottling offers flavors of white peach and grapefruit.  It's balanced, with a fresh, clean finish and a slightly mineral quality to it.  Enjoy with fish tacos, green salad, or anything with goat cheese.

This Sauternes style bottle from California is a very special wine. The fruit was affected with the "noble rot" known as Botrytis Cinerea. A mold that only grows when conditions are just right. This wine is nothing short of amazing. Rich, smooth flavors of dried apricot, pecan, and honeycomb explode from the glass. This blend of 70% Semillion and 30% Sauvignon Blanc is bound to charm and delight all who taste it.
