Shows a dense nose of cracked peppercorns, bacon fat and lush sun dried blackberry free run. Stunningly luxurious on the palate, dense berry and earth mingle in a cascade of richness seldom seem in North Coast Syrah. Penetrating acidity completes a dazzling experience. The finish lasts two minutes. An astounding value.

Casis on the nose. A vanilla flavor with blueberry on the palate. Fruit forward and great with spicy food. Nice finish.

About This Producer


Founded in 1997 by winemaker Jeff Gaffner, the winery's cornerstone is its 100-year-old Casa Santinamaria Vineyard in Sonoma, a "field blend" vineyard that, at a half ton an acre, defines "low-yielding." Old vine Zinfandel (with its field-mates Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouschet and Mataro) and Semillon come from this historic parcel. Pinot Noir and Syrah are sourced from small vineyards throughout Sonoma County. Total production is fewer than 2,000 cases, allowing Jeff to fulfill his mantra: "Winemaking must consume you, or your wines may not be worth consuming."
