Winemaker Derek Irwin runs the definition of a pure family winery.  As Derek says, "there are no outside sources - no winemaker, no delivery man and no vineyard manager. There is us, the Irwinfamily. We harvest our own crops and make each delivery ourselves. We are a family winery, in every sense of the word, and we wouldn’t have it any other way."

The complexity of this wine is the result of Derek's attention to detail in the vineyard and at the winery.  His grapes all come from one vineyard with a south/southwest aspect of heavy greenstone and feldspar at 1,500 feet in elevation with a vine density of 1,140 to 840 vines to the acre in the picturesque and rugged Sierra Foothills.

What a terrific wine for the money. Brisk acidity. Tons of red fruit balanced by hints of anise, cedar, cinnamon. Touch of vanilla and leather on the finish. Terrific. Bought more!

This wine tastes like it should be 2-3X more $. It is smooth and balanced, for lack of proper wine terminology, it is close to perfect. My husband and I keep it in stock at all times. Try it, you will love it!
