Wines Tasting Notes

2021 Vintage

2021 So Good! Orange

Hosting a summer party is about pouring your generous heart out to others. You spend time and energy arranging these gatherings and can often end up depleted. The secret solution? At the end of the night, after your guests have departed, pull out a bottle of the 2021 SO GOOD! orange wine. This wine is the reward for your cooking, entertaining, and generosity. The 2021 SO GOOD! stretches far beyond your glass and gives you a deep breath into love.

Due to drought in 2021, our old vine Mendocino Chenin Blanc harvest was down 75%. In the tiny amount of Chenin we were able to harvest, there was glorious fruit filled with true inspiration. After 40 days of skin contact, these spirit filled berries transformed into magical flavors of rocks, herbs, dried citrus, resin, amber, orange peel, frankincense, and fenugreek. Regal in texture, noble in length. A grounding wine for personal space travel with complex and shifting scents of wild thyme, labdanum, tangerine oil, and old growth redwood grove. You will find tip of the tongue texture that tingles around a beautiful and unwinding palate that goes and goes and goes. Perfect for post party grazing. Lamb lollipops? Sure! Dolmas with tzatziki? You know it!

2021 Summer-Salters Rosé

Decant 30-45 Minutes.

The 2021 Summer-Salters Rosé is a serious showstopper. 50% Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvèdre and 50% Shake Ridge Ranch Primitivo meet in a blend of high fives and sunshine daydreams. The Mourvèdre brings the depth and texture, and the Primitivo delivers the balancing acidity.

2021 was an incredibly dry year in California. This resulted in ridiculously small yields of wildly intense and flavorful grapes. Though fruit quantities were microscopic, they produced profound wines. The aromatics of our 2021 wines are astronomical. The textures are luscious with balanced acidity. The finish on each wine goes all the way – stretching from your palate to cosmic dawn. This profile is grand, afternoon cumulus clouds, and post lightning ozone. You will find aromas and flavors of sishu mandarin, palo santo, rhubarb, and pine needle beach. A lush and ornate palate with intense flavors that end in a hold-the-table finish, the 2021 Summer-Salters has serious undertow. This is indeed a”full plate” rosé. It will play with summer’s medley coming off the grill – from shellfish to portobello mushrooms to juicy ribeyes.

2021 Full King Crab White

Decant 45-60 Minutes. Serve cool to cellar temp (not cold).

We all need a white wine that makes us get out the drums, crash the cymbals, and sing out with all our heart. A wine that lures us in with its sophistication and finishes off with an invigorating primal roar. Welcome to your 2021 Full King Crab!

You can’t name a wine, “Full King Crab” unless it is both outrageously good and has a story to share.

Not far from Big Sky, MT is the Corral Bar. A local’s spot ideal for a cold beer and a shot. On a recent visit with friends, I locked in on some graffiti written on the bathroom wall. Instead of seeing the typical profane scribble, I read, “Otta Get The Full King Crab!!” The message struck me, and not because I craved the full king crab (it wasn’t on the menu). It went deeper. This is a message to always grab the full king crab in life – in whatever form it may appear.

The 2021 Full King Crab gives you everything. It is one part noble in all its regalia, and the other part stripped naked, diving off the dock howling “The ocean is love!!” Combined, it is a delicious journey that whisks you away on pulses of energy from the age of dinosaurs to the glorious here and now. Steamed crustaceans with herb butter. Grilled salmon with couscous and preserved lemon, and of course, FULL KING CRAB!

The 2022 Marvelous Mourvèdre is an Extradimensional jazz ensemble of pure and splendid old vine red fruits which swing through layers of earth, soul and delight. This wine is a splendid ceremony for our experience of the Mourvèdre-verse.

Cool spiced cranberries push through layers of sandy, gravelly, yeah! There are levels of intricate, philosophical brilliance that spin across the palate and down through the finish like a waterfall of you.

In one bottle it carries the range of the Mourvèdre-verse, from fresh and bright, to earthy, deep, and transformative! It is wonderful today with a 45-60min decant and like you, it will develop beautifully for years and years to come.
