Living among the vineyards gives me the contact with the vines and grapes that is essential to my vision. Working with the best growers, constantly walking my rows, tending clusters, leaf stripping, giving the hours to my fruit that is so vital to the wine.
This immaculate attention combined with the selection of cool weather sites and varieties that excite my palate makes for wine that balances the unctuous with bright flavors, dark fruit and spice. Enjoy these wines with dinner and the day.
THUJA - Red Wine Blend
The spirit of a warm fall day, the feel of the sun on your face and a walk through a vineyard are braided together in the shiver of wine that slips over your palate. The soul of this Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend is black cherries and berries, toast and jam while the sun and the earth are at its heart. We love this wine. Enjoy!
Delicate tannins and a silky, smooth mouthfeel along with vibrant expressions of youthful fruit, reminiscent of bright crushed strawberries and raspberries as well as deep floral notes of lilac and violets. Pair with animal, vegetable, mineral - roast turkey, salmon, lamb.
Mouthwatering perfume of raspberries alongside pebbles washed clean by pure summer rain. Subtle and complex, perfect. Cabernet Franc is the campfire, stare into it and reflect.
Pair with chicken curry, lamb kofte, or cheese and spinach quiche. Also great with goat cheese.
Our Viola Rosé is a blend of 50% Gamay Noir and 50% Cabernet Franc - a delicious treat of fresh summer fruit. Perfect on a warm evening with your peet propped up. No shirt or shoes required. Viola is fine company for a fruit plate, cold chicken salad or smoked trout. It's also great by itself. Enjoy!
CHENIN BLANC -
Floating on air and water, our dry Chenin Blanc balances minerality with aromas of D'Anjou pear and Jamaican ginger. Piercingly fresh yet succulent, this wine pairs well with Dungeness Crab and grilled fish. Hand harvested, hand sorted, stored and stirred on the lees to promote mouth feel and creaminess.
