2013 Grace (sold out)
100% Estate Grown Viognier
Delicate floral tones, flavors of ripe apricots, Asian pear, honey and a hint of peaches in fresh cream. Barrel fermentation in 100% new French oak provides structure and the creamy mid palate that has become a signature note of the Shadow Run whites.
2013 Sweet Baby Jess
100% Estate Grown Viogner
Sweet Baby Jess is the charming little sister of our estate Viognier, Grace. Jess displays the Viognier family resemblance, with a nose of honeysuckle and sweet brioche and flavors of apricot and white peaches. This is a fresh, light dessert wine that should be served chilled - quite yummy with a brie or other triple cream soft cheese like a St. André.
2016 Moon Shadow (sold out)
100% Grenache Blanc
Light aromas of white flowers, opening flavors of melon, sweet oranges and a hint of fresh lime on the finish. The flavors are so pretty, so delicate we find ourselves tasting and tasting again...what is that elusive note?
2017 The Violinist
66% Viognier 34% Grenache Blanc
Fresh peaches, honey and white flowers on the nose, with full-bodied flavors of vanilla meringue and passion fruit. The long finish moves from stone fruit to notes of sweet citrus.
2015 Jolie (sold out)
Rose` from our Estate Grown Petite Sirah
This beautiful rose` is bright with flavors of ripe melon and fresh raspberry. The grapes were pressed immediately after harvest, and the pale pink juice put immediately into neutral French oak. The cool fermentation in barrel tamed the wild nature of the Petite Sirah and showcased the fresh fruit flavors.
The first sip reveals intense flavors with a burst of juicy berry, descending into a silky dark mid palate with notes of dried cherries and red currant on the finish. The balance of fruit and acid makes this an especially food friendly wine.
60% Grenache, 40% Petite Sirah
Our winemaker is sipping the wine and writing up the tasting notes. Perhaps two more sips, and then tasting notes. Might be necessary to sip an entire glass. We will get back to you...
2013 Cellar Door
100% Estate Grown Syrah
For now, “yummy” is our first word - could be our last word on the rich, fruit forward wine.
100% Estate Grown Petite Sirah
The 2013 is a return to the powerful, fruity, rich petite that we all love, a wine just waiting to be paired with braised or grilled meats. The nose is a Christmas candle experience, with vanilla, dried cranberries and a touch of violet. Flavors include blackberry with espresso on the finish. 2017 Gold Medal winner from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
The Raven (sold out)
100% Estate Grown Blend of Petite Sirah, Malbec
The richest of our red wines, opulent with dark berries and espresso on the nose with lush flavors of blackberry and plum. Aged for 30 months in new French oak.
2017 Wine of the Wolf
83% Zinfandel, 17% Petite Sirah
Zins are by nature robust, sometimes lush and the best are rich, full of dark fruit flavors. The nose on this Zin is gorgeous, with flavors of blueberry compote, and notes of cranberry. Wine of the Wolf is aromatic, complex, elegant. Is the winemaker allowed to have a favorite?
100% Estate Grown Petite Sirah
The nose on this wine is dark and brooding, but the first sip reveals a surprisingly light bodied wine, with flavors of plum and dark berries. While the color is inky purple, the flavors are more delicate then any of the other Shadow Run Petites.
