Full of surprises this Marsanne-Roussanne blend's tiny bubbles, buoyant acidity and silky texture create a playful but complex wine.  Electric notes of pear, apple blossom and wet slate dominate on the nose. Candied citrus, eau de vie, melon and sweet earth sail along the palate, finishing cleanly with a peppery lift that is thoroughly satisfying.

Syrah has to be one of life’s greatest joys.  Few places on planet Earth are as ideally suited for Syrah as El Dorado County.  Our steep, mountainous slopes and granitic soils; our dry, warm climate and temperate, breezy evenings… Syrah absolutely thrives here, making for versatile material for us to explore the spectrum of its personalities, and allowing us to make something complex and downright otherworldly.

Intense black plum, olives, tar and brandied cherry with palate-coating layers of ripe blackberry, sassafras, peppercorn and quince paste.  This wine is begging to be cozied up with you by a roaring fire, pork rillette and crusty bread.

Deep aromatic intensity suggests a very serious wine, brimming with varietal purity and earthen expressions.  The nose exudes a peppery lift, Mirabelle plum, lavender, Earl Grey tea and prosciutto, and a palate, with an explosive core of lush black fruit, framed by glossy tannins and lilting texture.  Possessing spectral palate presence, delicious and occasionally austere, this Syrah never gets boring.

Our Estate Grenache perfectly defines the concept of “finesse”.  A strikingly translucent garnet, true as ever to the varietal, giving way to a nose of hibiscus, cherries and cream, clove and candied orange peel.  Electrifyingly juicy across the palate, building into layers of supple, persistent texture.

Plummy and floral layers over a foundation of spiced fig and alfalfa.  Creamy, bodacious blackberry framed by a stone-fruit-y brightness that gives this wine tremendous tension.  Supple tannins and silky mouthfeel definitively answers the question “Why Mourvèdre?”  Hands down.

Inspired by the blancs of Saint-Joseph and Hermitage, we aimed to produce a dry, wild wine reminiscent of the Old World.  Roussanne loves a long growing season and on our Green Valley estate ranch we are able to give it just that.  Often one of the last blocks to be harvested, it makes for a wine of luxurious textures and tertiary aromatics.  We harvest only a small amount of Roussanne from our estate, which is why it’s so special to offer it as a vineyard designated release.

Named to honor our legacy 1861 is the year James Skinner staked his claim in CA winemaking hisotry.  Pair that with our commitment to producing El Dorado-grown Rhône varietals, a nod to the ancient Châteauneuf-du-Pape region is a must. The New World take on these wines are casually referred to as “GSM” (Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre) and, California GSM’s are some of the most exciting wines around.
