Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Vinum Cellars the Scrapper Cabernet Franc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Darkly rich red currant and raspberry fruit aromas with good baking spice and black pepper and a slight note of varietally correct green herb. Nicely rich and full in the mouth, this is fruity and full bodied, showing a lot of spicy acidity, good earthiness from the chew of the tannins, and bright raspberry and black cherry fruit.

  • Vinum Cellars Pinot Noir Monterey 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Full fruited and bold nose with notes of zesty cherry, dark earth and red currant. Bright and floral in the mouth with violet and black cherry playing against twiggy notes of licorice and jammy blueberry with cinnamon spice on the finish. A fun, refreshing bottle of wine thats very approachable. Read More

  • Vinum Cellars White Elephant 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious vanilla cream pie notes of white peach, ripe red apple and hazelnut on the nose. In the mouth this is full and emollient, with toasty apple and pear fruit playing against peach and apricot, wrapped in a cream cheese envelope and finishing with a nutty memory. Read More

  • Vinum Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon the Insider 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty blackberry aromas pour out of the glass with dried raisin and fig fruit and a soft clove spice. Very bright in the mouth, dry but with incredibly bright fruit - a good mix of blueberry, raspberry, black currant and black cherry. When the fruit moves on theres a soft cedar and licorice note left behind that is zesty and comes with a dark ea... Read More

  • Vinum Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed red fruit aromas of mostly Bing cherry and raspberry with hints of dark baking spice and licorice on the nose. Thick, quite tannic and profound in the mouth, this is daring, showing full waves of acidity and powerful watermelon cherry and raspberry notes with a candied caramel and cinnamon finish. Read More

  • Vinum Cellars Pinot Noir Monterey 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark black cherry aromas on the nose with black pepper spice and earth and tar minerality. Black currant and black cherry flavors are medium-plus in intensity and come with a leathery toast and some dried fig flavors. There's an excellent spice here with clove and cinnamon showing on top of more red fruit flavors of cranberry and strawberry. On ... Read More

  • Vinum Cellars Red Dirt Red 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe plum and fig aromas with clay and earth and a hint of floral rose petal on the inviting nose. Powerful and full on entry, this packs a full fruit wallop of fresh cherry, raspberry and plum flavors, floral hints of violet and a good dose of earth, toast and vanilla on the finish. The cinnamon and clove also on the palate with some licorice s... Read More

  • Daytripper Clarksburg Petite Sirah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room quarterly selection also available from Lot 18. This is the Lot 18 review which I found pretty accurate. '...At first sip, this could be mistaken for a ripe Zinfandel or Syrah, with its incredibly juicy berry fruit, fleshy plum and spice character. But the concentration of flavors and supple texture on the finish remind you that i... Read More

  • Vinum Cellars California Petite Sirah 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nice little bomb of a wine. Part of a Tasting Room quarterly selection.Dark, thick, and inky, with a load of earthy spice jam sweetness (not sweet at all, but left that impression). if only I had swilled this down instead of Welch's Grape Juice while growing up, I might have a more subtle palate.
