    14.8% Alcohol By Volume

    In the beginning, we put our handprints on these bottles so everyone would know it was a Meeker Merlot - big, fruit-forward, full-bodied, and with tannic structure for days. Now you know what kind of wine this is! But we keep handprinting because the bottles are just so darned gorgeous.

    And this 2015 Winemaker’s Handprint Merlot is a classic. Dark fruit like currants and cherries marry on the nose with hints of toffee and caramel. The wine explodes on your palate with more cherries, and hints of the best strawberry rhubarb pie you’ve ever had. There’s no shortage of subtle, toasty oak and big, powerful tannins throughout the palate and finish of this wine. This 2015 Handprint will age beautifully and develop more richness and roundness for years to come.

    2017 Hoskins Ranch Grenache Reserve 2017 Hoskins Ranch Reserve Grenache Dry Creek Valley Double Gold - SF Chronicle Competition
    Grenache has been a part of our history since 1994. Lucas loves the challenge of making Grenache, so much so that he asked our longtime grower and friend Harold Hoskins to graph over part of his Dry Creek Valley vineyard to Grenache about 10 years ago. This 2017 is the sixth wine to come from those vines, and perhaps the best one yet!  It is also the last one from Harold's vineyard, as he sold the vineyard in 2018. Thus, we decided to make this a "Reserve" bottling to honor the legacy of Harold and our history in working with him.  We believe the wine is the perfect before-dinner wine, with fruit, spice and herbal notes balancing beautifully. You can taste some classic DCV notes in this wine: hints of creekside brambles, earth, and lavender. This wine has a gorgeous dark ruby color, hints of floral oak, and wonderful fruity complexity.

    Grenache is quickly becoming one of our best selling wines. It’s the perfect before-dinner wine, with fruit, spice and herbal notes balancing beautifully. This 2016 comes from our friend Harold Hoskins and his Dry Creek Valley vineyard--and you can taste some classic DCV notes in this wine: hints of creekside brambles, earth, and lavender. This wine has a gorgeous dark ruby color, hints of floral oak, and wonderful fruity complexity.

    Originally made under the Lucas J. Cellars label, this blend embraces the spirit of the field blends that anchored early winemaking in Dry Creek Valley.  Equal parts Zinfandel, Grenache, Carignane, and Petite Sirah, the strengths of each combine to make an incredibly well-rounded wine that has enough structure and acidity to age for at least a decade, if you can keep yourself from drinking it immediately.  Blackberry fruit and spice on the nose folds into a clasic Dry Creek mid-palate of bramble and earth.  Great on its own, it will also pair very well with most things cooked low and slow.

    After having a nice sabbatical from Pinot Noir for a few years, this vineyard in the Petaluma Gap presented itself at the very last minute during the 2018 harvest.  The Petaluma Gap AVA is the newest federal appellation in Sonoma Couty, and the "gap" is named for the gap in the hills between Petaluma in the coast, and the cold air in the evenings blows in quickly creating a cooler climate that grapes like Pinot Noir love. 

    With a bright, juicy core of classic cherry fruit, the wine quickly dives into a spicy bramble of baking spices and savory herbs. It should age well but we recommend to drink between now-2027

    Our Hone series is devoted to honing our craft as winemakers, featuring new wines that we craft as opportunities arise to try new varietals, blends, and winemaking techniques.

    Sakura is a blend of many of the varietals we make—and it has the complexity to show for it. Its nose feels like a perfect hybrid of Zinfandel and Carignane: brambles, cranberry, and a hint of spice. Sakura has rich oak and medium tannins, making it a great pre-dinner wine or pairing with white meats, pasta dishes, and Thai food. We've been bickering about it for a few days, but we settled on describing the finish as reminding us of and the caramelized crust of a fine creme brulee, without undue sweetness. This beautiful wine will age 3-5 years, but it's drinking perfectly right now.

    14.9% alcohol by volume

    Our Hone series is devoted to honing our craft as winemakers, featuring new wines that we craft as opportunities arise to try new varietals, blends, and winemaking techniques.
     
    Welcome to the dark side... The second in the Hone series, this wine embraces the elegant, brooding nature of cool climate Syrah in the most fantastic way. The nose of this wine quickly hopscotches classic Syrah fruit to saunter into a wound-up blend of leather and baking spices. On the palate, the wine shows fruit of dried cherry and cranberry with a long, lean slope into a dark, mineral mid-palate before rolling into a super-long, elegant finish that is beautifully integrated and austere.
     
    This wine will continue to evolve and age for at least 12-16 years. While it could easily pair with bigger meat dishes, it would probably show best with something like cassoulet, game meat, or roasted root vegetables.

  • 2016 Make It New Photo
    2016 Make It New 2016 Make It New "Snapshot Series" Grenache, Syrah & Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley

    The goal for this wine was to make a power-oriented Grenache wine that served as a counterpoint to the varietal Grenache bottlings we love so much and as a foil to the Grenache/Syrah/Mouvedre blends from Gigondas.

    This wine retains the same juicy strawberry core of Grenache, but builds from that starting point into something altogether more driven and rustic.   This wine will be a beautiful fit for everything from tandoori chicken and chickpea curry to roasted root vegetables and flank steak.  

    We expect that this wine will age for at least 10 years, but this wine is really built for now through 2023.

    Glass Island is a Blend of 66.7% ZInfandel, 22.2% Merlot and 11.1% Syrah.  This wine shoots for complexity and refinement in a way that ease and grace.  

    The wine centers ona  juicy, blackberry core with soft edges of vinalla and toffee.  There is some of the warmth of a classic Dry Creek Zin on the front of the palate, but instead of a dusty summer day, it feels more like lying in the sun to dry off after a swim at the beach on a hot day.

    We made this wine to reflect the rustic values of the earliest prospectors in the Sierras and our 40-year winemaking tradition in the red dirt of Dry Creek Valley.

    14.9% Alcohol By Volume

    Bessie is named after the 3000 gallon oak tank that we installed at our first winery on the west side of Dry Creek Valley. Bessie fermented many of our Zinfandels for two decades. This Zin exhibits traditional Dry Creek character: big fruit, big spice, and a round mid palate with an extended finish. The nose shines with blackberry, currant, anise and black pepper. The wine shines with jammy, round structure on the front and mid-palate with a soft mouthfeel. The finish incorporates soft tannin and bright acidity to illustrate good aging potential.

    2016 Barrel Select 2016 Barrel Select Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley

    Dry Creek Valley

    This Zin strikes a perfect balance between a welcoming juicy nose and a big, tannic structure that will lay down for years.  

    This wine is a blend of 90% Zinfandel and 10% syrah from Dry Creek Valley. We think Syrah is a perfct blending Grape with Zinfandel becuase it tends to slide in behind Zin's fruit character withour interfering, while fleshing out the spice and structure on the finish. 

    This wine saw a small amount of american oak before bottling and has a bright, vibrant acidity that will pair well with all things that have red sauce, melted cheese or barbecue sauce.  We expect this wine to be able to age for a solid 16 years but it is ready to drink right now.

    This reserve blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah brings to life many of the flavors of its hillside vineyard: berries, rhubarbs, and a gentle earthiness. This medium-bodied, round red has notes of light eucalyptus and rich red earth in the summer. We think it’ll age beautifully for 10+ years in your cellar.  
     
    And we know you’re wondering—why “The Paddle”? This blend is named in honor of its home in the highest drainages of  Peña Creek in Dry Creek Valley.  What’s the one thing you always want when you're way up a creek?

    Longtime readers know Fossil gets its name from its historic blend. French winemakers used to blend Syrah into their Bordeaux blends in the early 1800s, until the French government outlawed it. We’ve resurrected this winemaking Fossil to make a Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend for today’s dinner table.

    This Sonoma County “CSM” blend is a T. Rex of a wine, delivering a one-two punch of Syrah  and Merlot fruit flavors up front with a earthy Cabernet finish that lingers longer than the dinosaurs did. The nose has hints of peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream, and the palate follows up with spicy, smoky intensity.
