Orange Muscat '15 ~ $26
Origin: Southern France
Mendocino County, Calpella
, Graziano Vineyard
Eddie Graziano grows our Charbono and lovingly tends this tiny Orange Muscat vineyard right next to his home. There are fewer than 350 acres remaining in the state. Finding these rare gems and introducing them to our members and guests is a great pleasure. Vinified with carefully controlled cold fermentation and retaining a bit of residual sugar results in a frisky off-dry wine with a clean, floral finish and enough acidity to pair with spicy Asian and Indian dishes.

Dad's Daily Red ~ $18

Carignane, Charbono, Petite Sirah

Sally’s tribute to her dad Fred, who often lamented “…nobody makes Claret anymore.  I love Claret.” He was remembering the California heritage blends of the ‘50’s and ‘60’s when individual grape varieties weren’t showcased, but married together. Since the first vintage in 1996 Dad’s has become everyone’s favorite  - old vine Carignane and Petite Sirah blended with the rare Charbono and hearty Zinfandel. Don’t let the moderate price fool you, it ages beautifully and proudly stands tall. Lift a glass and toast to your Dad. "Dad's Daily is Heavenly." ~ Joni

It's My Fault Red ~ $18  

Dolcetto, Negroamaro, Barbera, Charbono

A multi-vintage blend made to commemorate the discovery of the PACIFIC STAR FAULT – geologist Dorothy Merritts announced it to the world in 2006. Running directly under the winery, it connects to the San Andreas fault system 12 miles out to sea.  Keep a bottle around for those moments when “I’m sorry” needs to be expressed in a creative way. A great inexpensive gift too! "It's My Fault Rocks" ~ Marcellus

Charbera '13 ~ $42
50/50 blend of Charbono & Barbera
It's My Fault White ~ $18

Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc, Roussanne

  Zinfandel '13 ~ $20
Origin: Croatia/United States
Mendocino County, Calpella, Graziano Vineyard

“Lover’s Lane Vineyard” is in the middle of the Ukiah Valley where cool mornings and evenings temper the hot days, preserving the fruity character of classic Zinfandel. We call this style “Italian Table Wine” – made to go with any meal - medium body with a peppery character that goes perfectly with all the foods we love.
 
Charbono '12 ~ $38

Origin: Italy

Mendocino County, Calpella, Graziano Vineyard

Charbono hit a low of 47 acres left in the world just 10 years ago - all the remaining vines were old and weakened by disease, making ripening difficult and propagation uneconomical. Vulnerable to rot from early rains, we thank only the most dedicated growers for Charbono’s existence. Inglenook Winery made Charbono into Gold Medalwines at the World’s Fair for years … some still drinkable 30 years later. Our flagship, this lovely relic from the past is enjoying a rebirth. Eddie Graziano grows our Charbono in Calpella, Mendocino County.

  Cabernet Sauvignon '12 ~ $42
Origin: France

Sonoma County, Dry Creek, Olsen Vineyard
This wine speaks for itself – juicy, lush and bright flavors of Cab without the heavy tannins & high alcohol. Wonderful with aged cheeses, hearty dishes and just fine by itself! I’m really enjoying the surprise and pleasure I see on our taster’s faces when they try this wine.
 
Tempranillo '12 ~ $28

Origin: Spain

Lake County, Luchsinger Vineyard

Spain’s dominant variety  (which has more vineyard acreage than any country) and famous for it’s role in the wines of the Rioja and classic Ports of Portugal. Since it prefers the highlands of Spain, the best growing areas in California need to be moderately hot with cool evenings like the foothills of El Dorado County. Our’s is 100% Tempranillo -  in its homeland it’s often blended with Grenache and Mazuelo (Carignane).

Barbera '13 ~ $38
Origin: Italy
Mendocino County, Talmadge, Foxhill Vineyard

An old favorite returns!  
Dolcetto '13 ~ $28 Release Date: Fall 2016 
Origin: Italy
Mendocino County, Talmadge, Foxhill Vineyard
Petite Sirah '13 ~ $42

Origin: France

Mendocino County, Talmadge, Darkhorse Vineyard

DNA science has recently been applied to grape varieties, identifying Petite Sirah as a cross between French Syrah (Shiraz in Australia) and the obscure Pelorsin. Created in the 1880’s by Plant Biologist Dr. Durif – the grape is known as Durif in France and came to California with immigrants at the turn of the century. Susceptible to rot due to its tightly packed clusters, it is notoriously difficult to grow, dipping to 2,000 acres in the early 90’s.  Winemakers have led the come back as this is the heartiest of wines; rich, dark, chewy, fruity and tannic.
