How do we craft the perfect wine to celebrate and toast your success? The same way you achieved it: inspiration, collaboration and dedication. David and Betsy Lawer begin the process by searching, sampling and selecting only the finest Napa Valley grapes. Then, Three Coins winemaker, Larry Levin, continues the process at The Ranch, a state-of-the-winemaking-art facility located just south of St. Helena, California. Here a select group of wineries leverage the talent, skill and experience of The Ranch staff to produce extraordinary wines and exceptional value. The winery is not open to the public, and Three Coins Wines are available only at http://www.threecoinswines.com/ and a handful of wine shops. David and Betsy are planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot at their vineyard in Knight’s Valley for a future estate wine. Their 106 acre estate with its 20 acre vineyard is nestled in its own private valley just outside Calistoga in the Knights Valley appellation. Their vineyard currently produces Syrah, Viognier and Petite Sirah. Great wine begins with great grapes, and the Lawer’s Syrah is prized by experienced winemakers who produce wines now earning 90 ratings and Gold Medals. Two’s company… Three Coins Wines is a celebration! Read less

Lots of blueberry fruit greets the nose along with some nuanced notes of grilled meats, toasty oak, a touch of black pepper and some fresh balsamic notes. There's plenty of oak here, with lots of vanilla and toasty, oaky flavors wrapped around the core of blackberry and blueberry fruit. There's a pleasant astringency to the tannins, which helps to balance out some of the light sweetness this shows on the mid-palate. The finish is a bit spicier, with more toasty oak and vanilla than fruit, but decent length. A bit rough around the edges and showing some heat, but offers a lot of wine. 87pts

Smells like roast venison, herbs, cracked pepper, dried juniper, salty/sweet, with a touch of wet dog. There’s a bit of the caramel, chocolate oak that runs through of these wines as well but it’s well in the background. Medium bodied, bright and juicy with super fine tannins give this a silky feel. The fruit has a subtle wild edge to it bridging blackberries and boysenberries. It’s an easy wine to like, well balanced, fruit forward but not vulgar. With a clean, crisp finish that offers a bit of espresso and black pepper on the finale with just a hint of wood tannin that needs to resolve. 88pts

A bit hot and very chocolaty some sweet roasty fruit, a bit of toasty oak and some candied floral tones add a bit of complexity. Light on the palate with some attractive raspberry fruit edged in chocolate and spice tones, really soft tannins give the wine some volume in the mouth and come to the fore on the backend which features some candied fruit with a touch of earth and wood spice on the finale. A nicely balanced, easygoing style of Syrah that is a bit simple but retains nice structure. 86pts

Plum blueberry and blackberry jam with some spices coursing through. Smooth with nice acidity and balanced flavors.

Teriyaki beef jerky aromas. The wine is juicy and big, with fresh blackberry fruit, olives and cocoa, and a long finish of tar and earth.

The nose is very striking; full of smoked porkbellies and cayenne pepper with a touch of blackberry. The mouth is a bit sweet and peppery, with mild tannins and acidity that gives it moderate length.

Dark baked fruit nose of plums, dates, with some toasted barley. Very fruity, licorice taste - good mouthfeel, smooth and rich.

Nice mineral nose with bramble flavors and bright acidity. Lovely purple hue. Good structure, tart finish, lots of fruit, but in balance. Very nice.
