12 O'Clock High--an SF Chronicle Thanksgiving Pick

November 20, 2011

We are very excited to see our 2009 12 O'Clock High among Jon Bonne's 2011 Thanksgiving recommendations: "2009 Alta Colina 12 O'Clock High Estate Paso Robles White ($28, 14.8%): This relatively new label owned by Lynn and Bob Tillman has found a great white expression from an estate mix of Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc. Big but plenty energetic, with a subtle honeysuckle kick from the Viognier but also a quicksilver nerve - think hay and steel and dried apricots."

Check out the full article to see his other recommendations.

Introducing our 2010 Rose

June 1, 2011

We're releasing our very first dry rose!  Club members had a sneak peek of this wine back in May and June 1st marks the general release of our 2010 Grenache/Syrah Rose.  This beautiful wine will be a great accompaniment to any summer meal or gathering and at only $20 a bottle ($16 for Club) this will be the perfect summetime house wine.  We only produced 42 cases of this wine so pick some up sooner rather than later.
