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 Winery on Snooth

  • DM - Thanks for the info on the Claret wines - I heard something similar to that on one of the wine tours we had in Virginia (it was likely to have been Linden).  And that Navarro is quite nice.  We found that winery on our first tour of Somona / Napa / Anderson Valleys back in 2012 (http://www.bigal-computers.net/wine-country.php).  The owner g...

  • Scherrer Winery Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    2010 Vintage. Fred does it again. Every Scherrer pinot I've had has been spot on, this was no exception. Fresh black, red and bing cherries balanced with notes of cola, racy acidity and a touch of black tea. Read More

  • Scherrer Winery Syrah Calypso Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Another great offering from Scherrer. This is not your big jammy syrah, but a southern Rhone style, slightly spicy, slightly acidic, bright red fruit kind of syrah. Great balance, fantastic red and blue fresh fruit, nice mouth feel, light to medium tannin and a really nice finish. Can't go wrong here. Read More

  • Scherrer Winery Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Absolutely fantastic Sonoma Cab. Bright red and black cherries, great balance, nice acidity with medium smooth tannins and great texture. This wine can handle spicy dishes, big meat or more subtle (but substantial) fare. Hard to beat at any price point. Read More
