This terrific dessert wine was made from Alicante Bouschet grapes. The fermentation was interrupted with the addition of fortified alcohol at 8 Brix. The result is a wine with a lovely velvet texture and sweetness.
This 2015 Sangiovese is good - all credit to our extended winemaking team for putting together a lovely, enticing wine. It is spicy with plenty of classic Sangiovese coupled with the buttressed black fruit of Cabernet Franc and Petite Syrah.
The 2016 Avignon is a white Rhone blend of the Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne varietals. It is a wine worthy of being named after the Provence home of the 14th century Papacy on the left bank of the Rhone river.
Confluence is a fitting name for this non-traditional red blend of our award winning Cabernet Franc and Mourvedre varietals. Like the American River confluence just a few miles away from us, these two wines came together to create an amazing blend.
