"The secret is in the stems on this beauty. We whole cluster press 100% of the fruit from this hillside vineyard site that sits on red volcanic soils. That means we get all of the herbaceous and black tea and white pepper goodness for the low low price of one bottle of Syrah. Who’da thunk! The stems add a textural component to the wine, pairing a medium-bodied red, with just the right amount of well-balanced tannin structure, with the inherently savory side of Syrah.

This wine is carrying dark fruit notes yet is lighter on its feet. Think very cherry jelly bellies and Santa Rosa plums. When the fruit came into the winery, we foot stomped and then set it aside for a few days. It can be a bit challenging to crush up everything at the bottom, so there’s naturally a little sneaky bit of “carbonicness” happening at the bottom of the bins. Can we say juicy fruit, anyone? Drink now or hold through 2030."

Vibrant Wines from Organic Grapes

We could bore you with a long story. If we did, it would be a romantic one telling you how we met working harvest and made out behind the press, or how we dreamed of someday making California wines we could be proud of and passionate about. But we won’t do that. We also won’t tell you long stories about our organic vineyard sources, our abundance of judicious winemaking decisions in the cellar, or our love of varieties from the Rhone. 

Instead, we’ll tell you that we probably have a lot in common. We’re betting that you like good music, cooking in cast iron, a tattoo here and there, a great cup of coffee and a well balanced and thoughtfully crafted bottle. Or two. You’re probably the kind of person that cares more about how you got there rather than how long it took. 

We’re that Sunday morning, bathrobe dancing to Rufus and Wax Tailor kind of feeling. That chocolate chip cookie and orange juice vibe. You know how it feels the first time you jump into bed after you've just put fresh sheets on, crisp but cozy? Or when you sink into a deep warm bath? Our wines taste like that!

We’ll let the bottles speak for themselves. We love farming them, making them, and drinking them and we’re guessing you will too. If you want to know more check out our tech sheets, that’s where all the nerdy stuff lives. If you’d like to ask us a question, feel free to reach out. Until then. 


Caroline and Blair Guthrie, owners and winemakers
