Unti Vineyards is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in red varietal wines with vineyard personality. George and his son Mick believe Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for making full-bodied, fruity reds from Zinfandel, Rhone and Italian varietals. The winery, established in 1997, produces small lots of estate grown Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah and a Dry Rose. The winemaking includes artisan methods which enhance and support an ability to make wines with a sense of place. Almost all of the wines, and opinions, are unfiltered. – Description from Kursulla

  • Renard Primitivo Unti Vineyards Dry Creek Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    More red than purple in the glass. Fairly volatile nose with hints of spice. Quite fruity on initial taste--raspberry, maybe some peach, maybe some prune. There is detectable sweetness although it is just a hint. A fairly easy to drink wine. I think though that it would accompany fruit (e.g., apple) and cheese more than a traditional entree...

  • Unti Vineyards Syrah Dry Creek Valley Benchland 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Big fruit greets the nose, a little jammy and black and framed with notes of cracked pepper and spicy, toasty oak spice. Broad and a bit flat in the mouth though this has plenty of acidity, its just dense and compact . The fruit feels a bit compressed and chunky with sweeter, softer edges that the Syrah normale. It seems more Californian, smoky... Read More
