For the 2020 vintage, we made a couple of changes to Rachael's original recipe: The first change was the decision to hang to grapes to extra ripeness which brings our a more rich and bold wine. The next change we made was to ferment the field blend whole cluster - the vineyard, cellar and tasting room crew got into the bin and foot stomped the grapes prior to pitching the yeast. That was a lot of fun! What resulted was a wine with a deep opaque color, rich black fruits and a layered rustic character that will develop as it ages in bottle.
Aromas of blueberry, blackberry and plum. Dry and medium- bodied with similar fruit flavors and hints of black pepper and vanilla and a smooth, lingering finish.
Aged for 23 months in new, 2, 4 and 6 year old heavily toasted French Oak barrels.

Alcyone is the name of the brightest star in the Pleiades and Alcyone Harmony is the name of our Winemaker, Mike's daughter. During it's original creation, this wine made Mike think of Alcyone Harmony and the legacy began....
Aromas of pineapples and ripe peaches dominate the nose with notes of toasted brioche. On the palate bright pineapples and sweet peaches are followed by a long, full silky finish.
5 years in the making, our first Port Style wine is here!!
Lucas Aurelius, meaning gilded light, is the name given by the son of our winemaker to his parents before he came to be with us on this Earth plane. He is a bright, strong young man who is kind and loving with an abundance of energy! This first release of the wine named in his honor is a blend of mostly Mourvèdre and Petite Sirah with little bits of other estate grown varietals mixed in throughout the years. Enjoy this robust, yet smooth wine with friends or family...or both!! Cheers to Lucas Aurelius!!
This Port-style blend of Mourvèdre and Petite Sirah would go excellently with cigars. Aromas of
tobacco and dried red fruit lead from the nose into a woody palate of cigar box, berry jam and heavy baking spice - Wine Enthusiast
