Tasting Notes

New to our program in 2016, Mixed Blacks is our homage to the California classic field blend. Ripe blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, and plum. Edging on jammy but still well structured. Purples tones, with blue and black fruit dominate this wine. A beautiful rich and round profile compliment the vanilla and earthy undertones. The ultimate crowd pleaser, this co-ferment of Petite Sirah and noble Bordeaux varieties from grower, Julio Covarrubias, is sure to impress at your summer BBQ.

Vineyard Sources

Casa de Viñas is our benchmark vineyard. First sourced in 2009, the 20 acre parcel and the man who farms it have become staples at Nottingham Cellars. Located on the valley floor, the vineyard is primarily comprised of Pleasanton gravelly loam, providing incredible drainage which results in wines that are big, rich and absolutely delicious.
