Wines

My philosophy is that wine is a liquid food, and this wine is an expression of all the paths my life has taken; from being raised in a rural, Western New York family to becoming a Northern California vintner.

Northern California is an amazing place, but not just for its history, natural beauty, and perfect conditions for winegrowing. The people are truly amazing, placing a premium on food, family, friends, and farming.

As a chef, I fully understood the necessity of integration and balance when the fruits of the land intermingle with the fruits of one's labor.

As a winemaker, it is my intent to make wines of the style that made me fall in love with wine - balanced, nuanced wines that speak clearly of their locations, and have affinity for carefully raised and prepared food.

We hope you enjoy the wines below, and cheers to you and yours!

RATING: 93 points (Exceptional)

CATEGORY: Rhône Other White, White

TASTING DATE: May-06-2013

Golden yellow color. Toasty peach pie and quince jam aromas with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a tangy lemon meringue and toasty almond praline finish. A very well polished and flavorful white Rhone blend.

This is our second white wine, a wonderfully nuanced blend , the majority of which is Roussanne with a supporting cast of Marsanne, Viognier and Grenache blanc.

2007 GM, High Valley, Lake County

2007 GM, High Valley, Lake County

A rich and saucy blend of 64% Petite Sirah / 13% Tinta Cao / 13% Mataro / 10% Grenache.  If ever there was a wine for the grill, this is it. Most any BBQ faire, burgers, lamb, smoked duck, and especially steak (pick your cut!), would be right at home with this quaffable partner.

3rd Release Teodoro Port

3rd Release Teodoro Port

We have been making and cellaring Port since 2003, and we feel this is our finest release by far. It works beautifully in concert with dark chocolate, fresh fruit desserts, brulees, strong cheeses, or even later with an evening ending cigar.
