As we dug through layers of earth—gravelly Redding soil, rock-solid hardpan, thick clay and moist sand—we discovered remnants of an ancient river, lined with round rocks polished by millions of years of erosion. This discovery made the land even more special to us. Next we chose a hardy rootstock, descended from wild Texas grapes, that thrives in dry river beds.

  • Miramont Estate Vineyards Celestial 2007

    Snoothrank:

    With an aroma and taste virtually exploding with strawberries and cherries, this dry rose will surprise you. Its fruit flavors hide the fact that it is dry, as there is no dry tartness to this wine at all. The real flaw for this wine, however, is its inability to be paired with a variety of foods.
