November Wine Club Releases

details about All of the new wine releases coming in your November Wine Club Shipments

 

2018 Club 9, Edna Valley

Included in estate red, estate mixed, Onyx red and Onyx mixed shipemnts

Each year we hold a blending competition with our employees (supervised and guided by our Winemakers) and the winner gets their wine bottled. 2018 was the first year we worked with wines from Jespersen Ranch! The final blend, composed by Accounting Assistant Candee, combines the three red grapes grown at the site: Pinot Noir, Syrah and Grenache. The result is a (slightly non-traditional) blend full of ripe red fruits, spice and earth.

2018 sangiovese

Included in estate red and estate mixed shipments

In 2018 we set out to create an approachable, fruit driven Sangiovese. We harvested Sangiovese and Barbera together and co-fermented them in a stainless steel tank. To keep a fresh profile, we barrel aged the wine for just 10 months (shorter than past vintages). The 2018 Sangiovese is aromatically expressive with a juicy palate and dusty tannins – perfect for your dinner table. Early Maturity.

2017 Syrah, Paso RObles

Included in estate red, estate mixed, onyx red and custom case shipments

2017 was an exceptional vintage for Syrah. The early season rains reinvigorated the vines, and healthy canopies protected grapes from late year heat spikes. What we love most about Heart Hill Vineyard Syrah is the variety of different expressions from the vineyard, and this wine combines five different blocks aged in 40% new French Oak barrels for 22 months. You’ll find deep rich color and a full and persistent mouthfeel.

2018 Reserve GRenache Blanc, Heart Hill Vineyard

Included in estate red, estate mixed, Onyx red and Onyx mixed shipemnts

This Grenache Blanc has striking contrast of richness and raciness. In 2018 we harvested in late September and fermented the juice in large oak barrels. We kept the wine from going through secondary fermentation, preserving the natural tart green apple acidity. The result: rich caramel and honey aromatics contrasted by a bright, focused palate. Early Maturity.

2018 Reserve GRenache, Jespersen Ranch

Included in Onyx Red, Onyx Mixed and Custom Case shipments

Farming Grenache in the cool climate of Edna Valley can be a gamble. Late season frosts and unfavorable weather can harm the clusters by the time they are ready to harvest in late October. But in more temperate years like 2018 we are rewarded with a fantastic expression of cool-climate Grenache. Aged 18 months in a large wooden cask, this wine has Jespersen Ranch’s signature white pepper flavor, wide drying tannins and naturally high acidity. Early Maturity.

2017 Reserve Syrah, Heart Hill Vineyard

Included in onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments 

The exceptional quality of Block 18 Syrah at Heart Hill Vineyard inspired this Reserve wine. Our winemaking team was immediately drawn to the block’s licorice and fennel flavors. 20% whole-cluster fermentation added more complexity. We then barrel-aged this wine for 22 months in 55% new French Oak barrels. This wine is lush and dark, with structured tannins and an inherent richness. Early Maturity.

2017 reserve twisted spur, heart hill vineyard

Included in onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

Twisted Spur is an ultimate expression of creativity: the blend changes depending on which blocks at Heart Hill Vineyard are exceptional each year. In 2017 that was Block 18 Syrah and Bordeaux Blocks 4, 5 and 6. The latter three blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot also created our 2017 Fog Catcher. Aged 29 months in 60% new French Oak barrels, this is a stunning wine with layers of flavor and a dense palate. Early Maturity. 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

2017 Fog Catcher

Included in onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

Fog Catcher is our flagship blend, made from the best Bordeaux grapes each vintage. In 2017, early season rains ended drought conditions and produced vigorous canopy growth. Dual heat waves in late summer dried out portions of our clusters and led to lower than average yields. A combination of hand-picking and sorting removed the dried out portions, and the fruit we brought into the winery was absolutely beautiful. Aged 29 months in 85% new French Oak barrels. Early Maturity.
