Harvest came and went in the blink of an eye. At every one of our vineyards, leaves have hit the dirt quicker than the pattering of the recent rains. Vintage 2014 is resting in our cellar and we are very excited to see how it develops.
With the cellar door closing on harvest, we are opening some new releases with new friends. We are excited to be at Pappo restaurant in Alameda on Sunday, Dec. 7th for a winemaker dinner and release party. Pappo’s mediterranean roots are just the cuisine that many of the wines being released, like our Counoise/Syrah Blend from Eagle Point Ranch, are crafted to be paired with. Join us for a delicious meal from Pappo paired with our new releases and some old library favorites making their last appearances. Here’s a peek:

Sadly, we have sold out of our Dry Creek Sangiovese and El Dorado Viognier. Only a few cases remain of our 2010 El Dorado Zinfandel, so in the spirit of Thanks and Merriment we are happily offering special pricing on 6 or more bottles until the end of the year.
