2016 Grenache, Estate Image

Grenache is one of the five varietals planted at the original J. SKINNER winery in the 1860’s and is the focal point of our wine program today. It is the most widely planted wine grape in the world, but only 8500 acres exist in California. Recently, Grenache has seen a renaissance in quality and plantings in California. We have five clones of Grenache planted in poor shallow soils onto low vigor rootstocks that limit yields and concentrate flavor. Our warm and dry Mediterranean climate, coupled with volcanic and granitic soils, makes our region ideally suited for this grape varietal.

2015 Mourvedre, Estate Image

94 Points | Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Elegant and silky, this medium-bodied wine is carried by aromas of cinnamon and dried currant. The palate brings tones of mineral, plum and black tea, with a lightly tannic texture and a good dose of acidity. The wine has a distinct personality and showcases the high-elevation El Dorado appellation's suitability for Rhône varieties." Reviewed by Jim Gordon

2012 Syrah, Estate Image

Syrah is a very versatile varietal and has the ability to produce great wines in various climates and regions. Styles and profiles vary as you move from the cooler coastal sites towards the warmer interior vineyards. The Foothills based Syrahs are distinctive to the specific region in which they grow. Amador Syrah is much bigger and bolder than the Fair Play (El Dorado) Syrah grown just up the hill, which tends to be more elegant or rustic in nature.
