Six Horse, a sister brand, produced and bottled by Skinner Vineyards & Winery, pays homage to the original Skinner winery of the late 1800’s. Its purpose is to focus on legacy varietals once grown by James Skinner beginning in 1861 and throughout the Gold Rush Era. Our Legacy Red blend, patterned after the J. Skinner Claret, is a fresh and lively blend of Trousseau, Zinfandel, and Grenache sourced from our legacy vineyard block on our Fair Play estate.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A lean, mean expression of Fair Play terroir, this offering opens up with snoot-full of reduced raspberry, clove, anise, currant, black tea, bergamot rind, and cumin. I could go on. Surprisingly understated on the palate, this soft and supple berry-bomb framed by peppery tannins and lively acidity begs for some fine French cooking to accompany.
