2013 Fall Offer
As harvest steadily approaches, we are bustling and poised for another classic vintage. Pristine coastal fruit hangs on the vine, anticipating the moment it will be hand-picked and carefully trucked to the winery. The cellar has been transformed back into fermentation mode, open-top tanks once again lining the perimeter walls, ready to be filled. The cast and crew are jazzed, as western Sonoma County swells with the aroma and feeling of harvest.
Running parallel with crush time is our Fall Offer. These selections are ready to enjoy or lay down in a cool cellar. We are pleased to offer a duo of Pinot Noir, Dierke Sonoma Coast and Savoy Anderson Valley. Under careful, loving eyes and a gentle hand, Dierke continues its evolution, both in the vineyard and bottle. The 2011 Savoy marks our 10th vintage from this vineyard, a decade of working with this special site. Our fall hat trick of Syrah includes Timbervine, Dusty Lane, and Cherry Camp. Each has its own unique personality, spice, and cool-climate nuance. And finally, after a three-year hiatus, we are proud to release a single puncheon of Robertís Block from our Estate vineyard, a dry-farmed Zinfandel originally planted by the Von Weidlichs.
