So... to achieve the high sugar content we rely on to create our distinct flavors, we achieve through the Arizona sun. The climate and the soil is refered to as the terroir, which sums up the environment of the vines. Here in Arizona the arrid conditions hinder the development of molds and fungus on the vines and the bright sun and cloudless skies over AZ provide more than enough to feed the vines and drive sugar in to the high twenties on the Brix meter. In the higher elevations of the vineyard we are growing Syrah and Merlot, and the lower portions are home to Zinfandel and Chardonnay. We curently have approximately 4000 vines planted. We produce full bodied, flavorful reds, and lean whites in small batches giving individual attention to every barrel. We produced 750+ cases in 2008 and our goal for 2009 is 1000+ cases.

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • When we talk about Zinfandel we often tend to focus on those most familiar to us. Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley, Amador County, and even Napa get their fair share of attention, though just as often we tend to gloss over some terrific wine producing regions.

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...
