Happy Holidays!!!

2017 Harvest was bountiful & we brought in the very first vintage of our recently planted Cabernet Sauvignon, an elegant vintage, deep ruby red   in color, releasing an alternating bouquet of ripe red cherries & blackberries. She will be gently aging in French Oak barrels for your future enjoyment!

In the mean time you can be the first to enjoy our special release of 2014 Reserve Syrah. Nature made it possible for us to harvest our Syrah and Viognier on the same day allowing us to craft a traditional co-fermentation of (yes) Viognier and Syrah typical of the Cote Rotie and Hermitage areas of France. Using approximately 11% Viognier by weight, we fermented with ambient, native yeast from the vineyards themselves then barrel aged in Taransaud French Oak barrels for approximately 18 months. Rich, dark berry components of Syrah opening with layers of espresso, dark chocolate & leather, all smoothed out & wrapped in a confident floral arrangement of Viognier! This wine will be a very special addition to your cellar, satisfying the most discriminating palate!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             $54/bottle (limit 2)


Cedar Creek Viognier

2016 Viognier

This is the red wine drinkers white wine! This very well could be the best vintage to date opening with floral notes reminiscent of dried wild flowers with spirts of lavender, violet and peach literally exploding on the palate. Very balanced  & food friendly; finishing with citrus blossom, dried apricot & stone crop.                                                              

I love Viognier because it just keeps giving and giving, in the vineyard & in the glass. This wine literally goes well with any meal; eggs benedict, seafood curry & kaffir lime cheesecake are my favorite pairings!


Cedar Creek Ranch Reserve


2010 Ranch Reserve-{150 cases produced, 13.5% alc.}

Unusually cold weather in 2010 produced a wine with exceptional aromatics of blueberries, violets, and ripe cherries all layered with minerals & wet stone, finishing with a structured earthy finish. This vintage is a rare field blend of our best hand-picked clusters. Unfiltered and barrel-aged 18 months in neutral French Oak.

My Father's current favorite wine. He enjoys with pork loin grilled on his Traeger or home-made duck ravioli, sometimes just on its own!


Cedar Creek Sangiovese

2012 Sangiovese-{220 cases produced, 12.8% alc.}

Originating from the Chianti region in Italy, Sangiovese is known as the "Blood of Jove." It is the main grape grown in Italy for good reason. Classic to the core, this vintage exudes aromas of ripe cherry, rosewater, and subtle hints of red current, raspberry, and exotic spices. Enjoy the balanced acidity and a long, pure finish. Unfiltered, and barrel-aged for 18 months in 15% new French Oak.

Pure and clean, balanced, easy drinking and a perfect food wine. Freshly picked wild morel or shitake mushrooms, home-made pasta dishes & cured meats pair exceptionally well.


Cedar Creek Petite Sirah

2012 Petite Sirah-{220 cases produced, 13.8% alc.}

A dark, inky, ancient varietal, Petite Sirah is known for strength and boldness. This vintage is ridiculously honest and inviting, dancing on the edge of muscular yet very elegant. Dark blueberry and blackberry fruit mingle with an earthy nose, giving way to a rich, juicy palate that's very approachable yet with aging ability to 20-plus years. Barrel-aged for 18 months in 20% new French Oak.

Our Petite Sirah has a strong cult following especially among our neighbors and family. You can be confident opening this wine in any setting, for any level of wine enthusiast. Enjoy rack of lamb in a formal setting or grill your favorite steak on your back yard BBQ!


Cedar Creek Syrah

2012 Syrah-{240 cases produced, 13.8% alc.}

Our Syrah is a noir (meaning dark) clone and is a noble grape from the Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage regions of Northern Rhone, France, where Syrah is the flagship red wine. This vintage is exceptional and opens with aromas of violet, dark plum, lifted raspberry, layered with olive tapenade and black pepper. Structured, elegant, rich and lasting. Unfiltered and barrel-aged 18 months in 20% new French Oak.

I will admit, this is my go to wine when I am at the end of a long day in the vineyards. This wine fills your veins, nourishes your soul, and is food itself. No need to eat, but if you must, enjoy this great wine with Wagyu carpaccio, rib-eye steak, or seared Ahi!
