  • Nebbiolo, with origins from Piemonte, is used in Italy for Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and is considered a world class red wine grape. The high tannins require aging where the wine will shift in color and a host of complex flavors develop. Aromatics of dried red rose petals and wet stone. Ample acidity and a bit bitter, flavors of tar and roses with cherry, baked brown pears , raspberry and black licorice. Harmonizes best with the richest, strongest flavored meats and stews, pork cheek ragu spaghetti as well as dry aged cheeses. This is a wine that only gets better with age. Very limited release, for our wine club members only.

  • Our grapes are from one of the top growers in California, Ann Kramer in Sutter Creek. Primitivo is our Italian expression of Cal-Ital Zinfandel and is known in Italy for its range of styles from Northern to Southern Italy. Shake Ridge Ranch, elevation of 1600-1800 feet, with deep, well-drained, river rap rock, mixed with Sierra Shale gives a lean and vibrant wine. Crisp, crunchy cherry and blackberry flavors. The aging in American Oak results in a soft vanilla elegance. Enjoy the aromatics of tart strawberries, vanilla, and stone with undertones of mild Italian herbs and coffee. Our first release of a Primitivo, with only enough for our special wine club members. Flavors of firm black cherry, violet and graphite. Tim could not stop thinking about what foods to pair-he recommends herb roasted chicken, crispy quail, braised rabbit cacciatore.
