Maroon
2016 Zinfandel
, Napa Valley

Big & Jammy!  Picked from old vines in Chiles Valley, this Zinfandel is a big, fruit-driven exuberant wine.  Deep garnet in color, with a ruby core. The nose shows blackberry, blueberry, cassis, tree bark, dried violets, sweet spice, graphite and black pepper. 

Nice hints of vanilla and cedar come from the 30% New Hungarian oak barrels it aged in for 14 months. The palate is medium to full bodied with a long vibrant finish.

Chiles Valley, Napa Valley
The Chiles Valley is nestled in the Vaca Mountains above the northeast side of the Napa Valley. The appellation has a cooler climate than the main Napa Valley floor due to elevations of 600–1200 feet as well as a cooling breeze from the Pacific Ocean.  Classic 'big red' Californian varieties like Zinfandel, have proved very successful at this location.

Appellation: 
Chiles Valley, Napa Valley
Vintage:
  2016

Epiphany
2017 Red Blend, Syrah-Cabernet
Santa Barbara County

93 Points, Vinous
A great example of where Cabernet's structure and depth are balanced by Syrah's jammy fruit-forward flavors. Savory aromas of dark berries, cassis, baking spices and vanilla that intermingle with earthy notes of dried tobacco, cigar box and saddle leather. Notes of dark fruit flavors carry on to the palate, with dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of black currant.

Sierra Madre Vineyard

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Aromas bright orchard fruit, lemon confit and white flowers. The palate is crisp, fresh, ripe and savory all at once... a nice interplay of honeyed citrus fruits in the mouth, with a light to medium weight, juicy acidity presenting flavors of Asian pear, nectarine and Rainier cherry with a smooth textured finish of new French oak.

Deep, chewy tannins and savory tertiary notes, with a rich midpalate.  Fresh, wild blue and black fruit with ripe Bing cherry, and subtle elderflower.  Rustic touches of olive tapenade, with layers of boysenberry...
