Winemaker Notes

Brambly dark fruits, earth, spice and Herbs de Provence aromatics fill the glass. Layers of warm spices and leather are intertwined with flavors of black plum, ripe raspberries and huckleberries, balanced by nice acid and structured tannins.

Blend: 45% Syrah, 41% Grenache, 9% Mourvèdre, 5% Petite Sirah

Professional Ratings

  • 93
    This outstanding blend brings together 45% Syrah, 41% Grenache, 9% Mourvèdre and 5% Petite Sirah, the grapes from the Landa Vineyard and Teldeschi Home Ranch. Soft, structured and juicy on the midpalate, it has strong, forceful layers of meaty, peppery exoticism, complemented in dried herb and blackberry compote.
  • 90
    The 2016 Turbine Red is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape-style blend of 45% Syrah, 41% Grenache, 9% Mourvèdre and 5% Petite Sirah. Medium ruby-purple, it has a gregarious nose of green and white pepper, menthol, crushed black cherries and blackberries and notes of loamy earth, soy sauce and red fruit sparks. Medium to full-bodied, it has a good core of savory fruit with firm, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long and savory.

Anaba, California
Anaba Winery Image
On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey — a gift of nature that makes the vineyard more temperate and slows the ripening process, producing robust flavors and distinctive varietal characters in our grapes.

The exclusive Anaba wines are handcrafted from the best Rhône and Burgundian grape varieties grown at the Carneros Estate vineyard and in selected outstanding vineyard properties throughout Sonoma County. These Rhône-style wines are artistic blends, inspired by the rugged earthiness of France's Rhône Valley and duplicated in the rocky Sonoma soils. Anaba's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs reflect the elegance and grace of the gently sloping vineyards found in Burgundy, crafted from similar sites in the Sonoma Coast and Carneros appellations.

Anaba... elegant, classic wines borne by the wind.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.

Sonoma Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

Perhaps the most historically significant appellation in Sonoma County, the Sonoma Valley is home to both Buena Vista winery, California's oldest commercial winery, and Gundlach Bundschu winery, California's oldest family-run winery.

It is also one of the more geologically and climactically diverse districts. The valley includes and overlaps four distinct Sonoma County sub-appellations, including Carneros, Moon Mountain District, Sonoma Mountain and Bennett Valley. With mountains, benchlands, plains, abundant sunshine and the cooling effects of the nearby Pacific, this appellation can successfully produce a wide range of grape varieties. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer, and most notably, Zinfandel all thrive here. Ancient Zinfandel vines over 100 years old produce small crops of concentrated, spicy fruit, which in turn make some of the Valley's most unique wines. These can also be made as “field blends” (wines made from a mix of grape varieties grown in the same vineyard) along with Petite Sirah, Carignan and Alicante Bouschet.
