    2021 FroZin 2021 FroZin Zinfandel Dessert Wine Dry Creek Valley

    Sonoma County
    11.3% ABV
    17.8% RS

    Our legendary FroZin is not your typical dessert wine. It’s not a late harvest--it’s our unique take on an ice wine. Instead of the syrupy sweetness of your typical dessert wine, you’ll find fresh blackberry and raspberry notes in this wine. And it’s still got tons of acidity to balance the fresh fruit sweetness. You’ll love it with any kind of dessert, but Charlie really recommends you try it first with dark chocolate.

    2021 Hone #4 "Tonnage"
    Elk Mountain Vineyard — Upper Lake Valley

    The most recent Hone series is a decidedly against the grain cofermentation of four Portuguese red grapes that would typically be used to build the backbone of a traditional fortified wine. But this wine is anything but traditional. The nose is welcoming and plush, anchored by soft blueberry and apricot cushioned by soft brown vibrations:  leather, pencil shavings, baking spice and vanilla pudding. The palate shows more racy character: the fruit leans more towards cherry and ripe plum and midpalate through finish pivot around a bracing acidity. The risk of low-alcohol, high-acidity wines is that they feel narrow and "centered up" on your palate because they lack roundness and complexity. This wine is broad, with juicy and a lot of warmth—which is special for a wine like this.

    More than anything, this wine is fun. And a lot of that fun character will fade with time. Nonetheless, it will age well for 5-10 years, but if I were you I'd board this party boat soon.

    Larry Venturi’s family has tended vines on the benchland above Calpella for over 100 years. He is the archetypical old-timer in all the best ways; the kind of grower who plants head-trained and dry-farmed Grenache in 2017 and then farms it organically because that’s how he farms everything. This block is on the uppermost bench of his ranch, and the slightly higher elevation and farming techniques help limit these young vines of a vigorous variety to a moderate crop of intense concentration.

    Our house style has always focused on maximizing intensity and expression of the grape’s structure then aging that intensity into elegance. Though Grenache is not an ample provider of structure, it makes for a dynamic partnership between grape and style that demands restraint and attentive winemaking. Which is, for us, super fun.

    2020 Syrah Andrews Vineyard 2020 Syrah Andrews Vineyard Suisun Valley

    Andrew's Vineyard
    Suisan Valley, Solano County

    14.8% Alcohol by Volume

    We love to search regions all over California for beautiful fits between vineyard and enviroments. That fit is almost always the result of growers with the dedication to one that fit over time. The second and third generation of Andrew's work this vineayrd together to bring us incredible fruit from their family farm in the Suisan Valley.

    Syrah has more range than any other pinnacle grape, and this wine is shows a facet of that range that is new for Meeker. This is easy-going but not shallow. It's still nuanced, classic Syrah at its core. Blueberry pie, eucalytus, and aged leather on the nose. It's high-toned, round and deft on the palate with reminders of crushed mint and pipe tobacco. The finish rides a creamy, soft acidity and closes with suede-ish tannins that say "see you soon!" like a handstamp for same day re-entry. Drink now or before this teenager graduates college.

    Scharf Family Vineyard

    Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

    14.9% Alcohol By Volume

    We’re thrilled to bring you our third release of a Dry Creek Valley Cabernet from the Scharf Family Vineyard. We have worked with the Scharf family for many years. In fact, our first release of a single vineyard wine from Scharf was back in 1995. The vineyard is planted to Cabernet and one row of Malbec, which goes into our Four Kings blend. But this wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a big, juicy, classic Cab nose of currants and spice, the aromas tempt you until your first sip - which is when you start wondering why you didn’t order a full case. 

    This Cab has a velvety mouthfeel, muscular tannins and a long supple finish. Above all, this 2019 is still a young wine. It will drink beautifully on your holiday table or you can stash it in the cellar and let it get better for years. Also, as with every big, amazing Cab - if you drink it, decant it!
