Reviews For This Wine

($38) Ruby-red. A complex bouquet displays cherry-cola, licorice, smoked meat and cracked pepper. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors are firmed by chunky tannins and become spicier on the back end. The black fruit lingers on the long, assertive, slightly wild finish. This big, chewy wine needs a hunk of grilled meat to tame it. (JR)

Love the olive tapenade notes in this wine.

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."
