Vine Starr Zinfandel 2017
When I was living in Nebraska in the early 90’s, my go-to varietal to drink was Zinfandel. It was affordable, had fruit, and some had black pepper notes which I was (for whatever reason) really drawn to. I’d read about the origins of Zinfandel with its brambly red fruits and black pepper spice. When I decided to move out to California, this was the first wine I wanted to make — a brighter style of Zinfandel. This wine is a homage to the history of Zinfandel; maybe it’s historically accurate, or a revisionist history on my part.
Love White 2020
The Love series are my most identifiable wine. Has all the meaning of why I moved to California from Nebraska—to be around all of these old heritage vines and history. This vintage is a blend of 46% Marsanne, 38% Grenache Blanc, 8% Rousanne, 8% Picpoul.
Got Grapes NV
A foil to the Vine Star Zinfandel, the Got Grapes is a series we started in 2017 that came to be because of a blended wine made accidentally during a hectic harvest. It is a multi-grape, multi-vintage, light and chillable red – a Broc California table wine!
