The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is known as the largest competition of American wines in the world and remains one of the most respected and highly regarded wine contests.
The TexSom International Wine Awards combined two well-established institutions: a flagship wine competition with the most famous sommelier conference in the world. The wine competition was started in 1985 by renowned wine writer, Rebecca Murphy. So believe us when we tell you, we are especially proud to have won Gold Medals for our 2013 Syrah Sonoma Coast, Coryelle Fields and 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley wines, moreover, we were awarded a Gold Medal, plus the Judges' Selection for our 2014 Zinfandel Russian River Valley, Gilsson Vineyard.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine, founded in 1988, is one of the premier wine magazines in the nation. That’s why we were thrilled to earn a significant 91 points for our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, Hi Vista Vineyard and 90 points for our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. Although both of these wines sold out quickly, as so many of our wines do, we know you'll be equally pleased with our latest vintages of these fine, affordable, and very well-reviewed wines.
This classic, versatile Zinfandel is sourced from a 65-year-old vineyard in Windsor where the fruit is exposed to morning fog. Our 2014 vintage displays depth and complexity, with hints of vanilla and a long finish. This velvety, seductive wine reveals the intensity of its fruit source while showing a restraint and balance unusual for its varietal.
TexSom Gold Medal, plus the Judges' Selection for our 2014 Zinfandel Russian River Valley, Gilsson Vineyard.
Our cool climate Syrah comes from the coastal hills east of Jenner, in a remote vineyard near our namesake Tin Barn Road. Sourced from a rocky hillside block just above the fog line (elevation 1000 feet) the fruit ripens slowly in the coastal air. As a result, this wine imparts a distinctive earthiness that is characteristic of Northern Rhône Syrah.
