Since our small winery’s first vintage in 1991, our goal has been to create handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown. Fred first became known for Zinfandel from his father’s Alexander Valley vineyard, and now his careful hand with Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Sonoma County has quietly gained attention and a steady following. That same attention has made Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah that exemplify the bounty of Sonoma County vineyards. – Description from Dragac

  • Scherrer Russian River Valley Syrah

    Snoothrank:

    Terrific wine. A big nose of dark berries and violets. Gentle blackberry flavor on the tip of the tongue.Nice level of acidity shows up with back-of-the-tongue tartness Some savoriness. Some tannin, but, certainly, not over the top. A fairly full-bodied wine. Drinking well, now, but I wish I had more. Read More

  • Scherrer Winery Scherrer Vineyard Old and Mature Vines Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Ruby color, but not as dark as one might expect. Very subtle berry fruit on the tip of the tongue, An herbal retro-nasal sensation. Less full-bodied than I might expect for a Zin, Quite mild tannin and acid, A surprising Zinfandel--more elegant than rustic. medium Read More

  • Scherrer Russian River Valley 'Sasha' Syrah 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Another fantastic bottle of Scherrer Syrah! Interesting note of cocoa on the nose. The palate is layered full of ripe macerated black cherry, rhubarb, a hint of brown necco wafer, but without the black pepper bite that syrah can have. This is a very well balanced wine with medium plus acidity and a fairly long finish. Read More
