2013 Winemakers' Handprint Merlot

Sonoma County
14.7% 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 2013 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 2013 Handprint will age beautifully and develop more richness and roundness for years to come.

2013 Handprint Merlot Magnum (1.5L)

Sonoma County
14.6% ABV
 

The only thing better than a glass of Winemaker's Handprint Merlot is a bottle of Handprint Merlot. And the only thing truly better than a bottle of Handprint Merlot is a magnum of Handprint Merlot. This "double bottle" contains 1.5 liters of our 2013 Handprint Merlot, and two sets of handprints from winemaker Lucas Meeker. It's finished with a beautiful wax dip. Mags make a great holiday, wedding or birthday gift - and they will age more gradually than a standard bottle - making them a great cornerstone of your wine cellar. 

As most of our customers know, Meeker Handprint is a big Merlot, featuring tannic, spicy cherry flavors and a strong backbone. This is a Cabernet-drinker's Merlot.

2013 "Bessie" Zinfandel

Sonoma County
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.

2011 Barrel Select Zinfandel

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
14.9% Alcohol By Volume

We’ve been making Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley for over 30 years, and we’ve spent that time honing our Zinfandel technique to a sharp point. Our goal is to make a Zinfandel that is unmistakably Dry Creek yet built on the foundation of old world wine chemistry--above average acidity, firm tannin, medium alcohol--and the aging potential that comes with those key attributes.

Blackberry cobbler, olallaberry pie, rambunctious Dry Creek bramble, dusty July afternoons, spice cabinet, red dirt. Firm, rising mid-palate with a sloped plateau to a sweeping medium finish

2012 Fossil Blend

Sonoma County
14.4% Alcohol By Volume

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.

NV Combination [code three]

California
14.9% ABV

Like all of the wines in our “Combination” series, this wine is inspired by the antique lock on the vault in our tasting room: It blends a few unexpected elements to make a big, chewy, full-bodied red wine. Our latest, Code Three, combines Syrah, Petite Sirah, and a little Barbera to bring out the best of all of these varietals. Lucas says it reminds him of his wife Erika's blackberry chamomile jam (you’ve never had it? here’s a recipe), with ripe plum-berry flavors and herbal notes. No need to pick this lock - we’ve got the combo: fresh fruit flavors, nutmeggy spice and round tannins.

2010 Kelly's Cab

The 2010 is sweet-- with hints of strawberries and Queen Anne cherries-- but it’s got a lot of backbone, with tons of tannin and structure. You’ll want a scoop of vanilla ice cream after you drink this cherry pie of a wine. As the youngest of the three, it’s still rich and velvety, balancing bright fresh fruit with great depth of flavor. It’s delightful now, but it’ll be even better in 3-5 years.

2009 Kelly's Cab

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
14.8% ABV

Like Kelly herself, this is an assertive wine with a strong backbone. Unlike Kelly, this dark red elixir features cherry, blackberry and cranberry flavors met with warm toasty oak and hints of earthiness. This is the perfect bottle to share with your favorite friend or more-than-a-friend over dinner- it pairs well with rich meats, tomato dishes or anything with cheese. (If you have more than one friend to dinner, you'll need another bottle). This is a fruity, full-bodied Cab that tastes great now or could age for 5-8 years.

2010 Four Kings

Alexander Valley
14.6% Alcohol By Volume

When we got together to taste this wine, the first thing out of all of our mouths was, “hmm, this tastes like Four Kings”. If you like Four Kings, we’re pretty sure you’re gonna love this 2010! With the big, muscular cherry fruit, the tempting cocoa-coffee notes and the lingering finish, this wine is already impressive, and sure to age for a decade to come. The tannins stick with you and the finish will pair nicely with your next osso bucco, steak or prime rib dinner. In Julia’s words, this wine is "soooo good"!

2009 Four Kings

Alexander Valley
14.5% ABV

What can we say, this is Four Kings! Named for the four royal grapes in a traditional Bordeaux blend - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot - this wine is a swirl of dark chocolate, vanilla and raspberry coulis. With the richness of a good espresso and heartiness earned in Alexander Valley's chalky soil, this is a monster wine that will age another ten years plus or make your next meal memorable - whichever you prefer. The nose has herbal hints of mint and lavender and the mouthfeel is a silky as a luxurious scarf. Molly recommends pairing this with "a bleeding slab of beef" or her legendary eggplant parmesan.

2008 Four Kings

Alexander Valley
14.8% ABV

The 2008 is another classic Four Kings. Named after the four royal grapes in a traditional Bordeaux blend, this big red features earth, spice, and chocolate on the nose with dark cherry cobbler and currant. With all the complexity of its Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot ingredients, Four Kings is big and silky with bright mocha, and cocoa dust on the mid palate. Long tannins will soften for a decade plus while this wine settles into a serious groove. The structure builds through the mid palate and then crescendos with toasty oak as the pile of chips on the table gets taller and taller. At this young age the ‘08 Four Kings reminds us of the epic 1995. 

This wine, like the 2006, features a very Cabernet Sauvignon flavor profile - with leather, soil and spice on the nose and palate, and a bright acidity that keeps the wine tasting fresh. There's a hint of smoky oak and a lingering fruitiness that catches your interest and keeps you coming back for more.
