2017 Rosé of Old Hill Ranch
$24
Sonoma Valley Rosé
Sonoma Valley Rosé

This year our Rosé is 21% Grenache, 58% Zinfandel, 13% Mourvedre, 4% Syrah and 4% Carignane.

The grapes are harvested early, whole cluster pressed, and finished dry. Then the juice is fermented cold using indigenous yeast with no ML. The wine is very pale in color, beautifully aromatic and crisp on the finish, what a fine accompaniment to the optimism of spring!

Alc. 12.8%. 262 cases produced.

2016 Old Hill Ranch Mixed Whites
$24 ~ SOLD OUT
spacer
Sonoma Valley White WinesMixed White Blend

Our Mixed White block was established on Old Hill Ranch in 2011 as an ode to the unheralded white grapes found in many of Sonoma's historic field blends. Muscat, French Colombard, Chasselas, Clairette Blanc cuttings came from Old Hill Ranch, Semillon from Monte Rosso, Gewürztraminer, Trousseau Gris and Riesling from Compagni-Portis, Muscadelle from Casa Santinamaria, Malvasia and Grenache Blanc from Rossi Ranch and Chenin Blanc from Carlisle. Grapes are whole-cluster pressed, fermented cool in Stainless and then aged in neutral barrels sur lees for 6 months. The wine is quite delicate with a hint of spiciness and a bright natural acidity.

Alc. 13.2%. 60 cases produced.

2016 Old Hill Ranch Mixed Blacks
$38
spacer
Sonoma Valley Red Wine BlendMixed Blacks

The term "Mixed Blacks" was coined by old-timey grape growers in reference to the non-Zinfandel grapes in a field blend, and that is exactly what this wine is: everything but the Zin! Roughly half of this blend is composed of Grenache and Alicante Bouchet, while the other half contains the remaining 30 or so varieties that exist in the field blend.

Alc. 15.8%. 46 cases produced.

2016 Old Hill Ranch Petite Sirah
$28
spacer
Sonoma Valley Petite SirahPetite Sirah

For some reason that remains a mystery, this little block of Petite Sirah vines that we planted in 1999 produces little tiny grapes of unusual concentration. The wine is blended with 25% Zin to soften the edges, but it remains dark and intense, with black pepper and Old Hill spice.

Alc. 14.2%. 52 cases produced.

2015 Upper 5th Vineyard Ancient Field Blend
$28
Sonoma Valley Zinfandel
Upper Fifth Ancient Field-Blend

Our mother purchased the "Upper 5th" vineyard in 2011. The vineyard is so named because it is the upper 1/5th remnant of a vineyard that was removed when Hwy 12 was rerouted in the 1940’s.

The field blend consists (mostly) of five grape varieties: Zin, Petite Sirah, Pelrousin, Carignane and French Colombard. In addition to the vines, there are fruit and nut trees inter-planted throughout, including almonds, walnuts, apples, persimmons, olives, and figs. Italians call this co-mingling "agricoltura promiscua," which espouses the philosophy of biodiversity in farming, essentially the opposite of monoculture.

Alc. 14.8%. 73 cases produced.
