Lost Canyon Winery’s focus is on producing small lots of single vineyard designated Pinot Noir and Syrah from some of the finest vineyards in the Russian River, Sonoma Coast, and Los Carneros appellations. Lost Canyon has nurtured a passion for crafting the finest quality wine since 1978 with Randy Keyworth and Jack States’ inaugural vintage. Lost Canyon's premier commercial release was unveiled in 2001 when Bob Riskin joined the ownership team. Now under the stewardship of the Fritz Family, Lost Canyon continues the tradition of fine winemaking, garnering many awards and accolades along the way. Our commitment is to making cool climate, “vineyard designated” Pinot Noir and Syrah. Each of our ultra-premium wines reflects the unique terroir of the individual vineyard and grower’s philosophy. We have partnered with some of the best growers in Sonoma County including Saralee Kunde and the Dutton Family to create these exceptional wines. Maintaining a small production size (under 2,500 cases Read more »

  • People are not going to like what I have to say here, but that is okay, this is not a popularity contest. I do not write about wine to gather as many friends or followers as possible. I write about wine because I love wine and while I know my palate sometimes strays outside of the mainstream, so be it. I know many other people share my tastes or... Read More

  • Hey all. I'm a wine reviewer, and I just launched an article on some pretty great Rhone blends from Calcareous Vineyards, out of Paso Robles. Plus, I'm going to be attending a Rhone Rangers tasting in a couple of days, so I've got the region on my mind. What are some of your favorite Rhone grapes, regions (New or Old World), and producers? This ... Read More

  • Paso Robles Trip Notes:I went to Paso Robles over the weekend of the 26th of September. I had intended to be there three days, but something came up and I was only there for Sat and part of Sun, so I ended up getting to just a small selection of places. But I could have been there a week and still not gone everywhere I wanted to go! I will re... Read More

  • Lost Canyon Syrah Sonoma Coast Stage Gulch Vineyard 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Very full at the front, with great bold and heavy flavors on the palate, but fails to deliver a sufficient finish and completeness that a Syrah at this price point should exhibit. Possible I didn't let it breathe long enough, but didn't show signs of rounding out at the end of the day. Read More

  • Lost Canyon Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Saralee's Vineyard 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very light and almost sweet pinot up front with the oak really pulling through on the back to balance out the brightness. Overall, mouthwatering and almost too easy to drink by itself. Read More

  • Lost Canyon Syrah Sonoma Coast Stage Gulch Vineyard 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is an easy-drinking, juicy, lush wine that encouraged me to take BIG mouthfuls rather than sips. The only problem I had with this wine was that I ran out when all I wanted was more. It went brilliantly with BBQ'd top sirloin with Agent White's famous bleu-cheese-creamy-mushroom sauce. Recommended! Read More
