Alexander Valley is a diverse appellation located in the north end of Sonoma County. Our grapes come from David DeMattei’s vineyard, high up on Pine Mountain at the very north end of the appellation, overlooking the Russian River and the town of Cloverdale. is is a rich, luscious Cab with a wonderful dark fruit nose, deep cassis, black cherry, hints of tobacco and licorice, with deep, full tannins. While enjoyable now, our Cabernet Sauvignon will age very well.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a challenging grape to grow in Texas, however, the Texas High Plains exhibits cool enough evenings during the growing year to support proper ripening. We source our Cabernet Sauvignon from from the Texas High Plains to and produce a wine with distinct black fruit, plum, white pepper, a hint of spice and well integrated oak. While this Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasure to drink now, it will age gracefully for years.
Dolcetto is a wonderful grape of Italian origin and literally translates to “little sweet one”, probably having more to do with the hills of Piedmont, Italy where it originated. Our Dolcetto is grown in the Texas High Plains where this grape is known to do very well. The wine from Dolcetto is light on the palate with hints of dark cherry, earthy and woody notes, and hints of dark fruit and cherry on the nose.

Our Pinot Noir grapes come from Windsor Oaks Vineyard, just south of Healdsburg, California. This vineyard splits itself between Russian River and Chalk Hill with the Pinot growing on the mid-elevation vineyard blocks. Our Pinot Noir is from Clone 777 grapevines and exhibits a rich aromatic nose full of black fruit, cassis, hints of leather, tobacco, and brooding earthy notes. We age our Pinot in older French Oak barrels that allow the wine to breathe and mature gracefully.
We use the Saignee’ method, which means “bleed”, to produce our Texas Rosé from both Sangiovese and Mourvèdre grapes from Bingham Family Vineyards in the Texas High Plains. After soaking on the skins juice is removed and fermented separately, yielding a rosé style wine with tart cherry, strawberry and earthy notes. Texas Rosé pairs well with light pasta, shellfish, and rice dishes.
Sangiovese is an Italian grape that has found a home in Texas. Our Sangiovese is harvested from Buena Suerte Vineyards in the wind-swept Texas High Plains. We age our Sangiovese in French Oak for nine months to allow the wine to mature gracefully and round out its earthiness and complexity. This reveals the fresh fruity flavors of tart cherry and spice with a hint of strawberry on the nose, and medium tannins.
Tempranillo is the main varietal grown in Spain, however, has found a home in the Texas High Plains. We source our fruit from the carefully managed Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Tempranillo produces a red, translucent wine with hints of cherry, strawberry, plum and a soft, leathery finish. We age our Tempranillo for 9 months in new American Oak to soften and round out this highly enjoyable, diverse wine.

Vesenillo takes its name from the grapes used to create this ruby-style wine. Sangiovese and Tempranillo were used to create our little gem and thus the name. This wine has a pleasant dark fruit character with hints of raisin, cassis, and dark berry on the nose and a gentle hint of sweetness on the finish. Vesenillo pairs well with aged cheddar cheese, dark chocolate, and fruit desserts or enjoyed on its own.
Wild Eye Red is a wonderful blend of Texas High Plains varietals. We chose not to follow traditional, old-World, blends but use our senses to guide the blending of Mourvedre (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (45%) and Petit Verdot (5%) in coming up with a pleasant, full wine that can be enjoyed with dinner or a quiet glass on the back porch.
Our Zinfandel comes from Bertapelli Vineyards, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. During the last several years, the Sonoma region experienced significant drought, which resulted in dense grape clusters with intense, dark fruit and pepper flavors, with hints of leather and smoke. Zinfandel pairs well with hearty meats and spicey dishes. We age our Zinfandel in both new and older French oak barrels for additional wine structure and graceful aging.
The grapes for our Zinfandel are grown by the skillfully-managed Tombs Creek Vineyard in the mountainous area midway between the town of Geyserville and the Pacific Coast. The high elevation of this vineyard allows intense heat during the day and cool breezes at night, producing maximum development of berry phenolics. We age Tombs Creek Zinfandel in both new and older French Oak barrels, resulting in a wine exhibiting dark cherry, blueberry, and blackberry, with a hint of black pepper on the finish.
