Winemaker Notes

The 2015 vintage capped a 4-year streak where we thought it just couldn't get any bet ter. Ideal conditions throughout the growing season brought the grapes in every appellation to peak ripeness, resulting in vivid fruit flavors and soft, supple tannins.

Since building our own winery in Berkeley three years ago, we now have the freedom and ability to source grapes from many new and exciting vineyards and varietals. Tasting through barrel lots from the 2015 vintage, I realized we had some extraordinary wines that were definitely not Cabernet. They included Sonoma Valley Petit Verdot and Malbec as well as Bennett Valley Syrah. I selected a small number of my favorite barrels from these varietals to create a unique blend that reflects the highlights of the vintage from a Sonoma perspective.

This is a richly textured wine, replete with lush, round tannins that frame a multi-layered display of dark red fruit flavors. Blackberry, cassis, plum and black cherry come to mind, all laced with an appealing spice quality. The finish is long, lush and lingering.

Blend: 60% Petit Verdot, 30% Malbec, 10% Syrah

Wine Enthusiast
An unusual blend of 60% Petit Verdot, 25% Malbec and 15% Syrah, this is a lush and meaty wine, rustically earthy and robust in leather. Cocoa powder, baked bread and tobacco round out the concentrated flavors.

A trip to the Galilee and Golan Heights in 2011 inspired California winemaker Jeff Morgan to make wine In Israel. He named his Israeli wine project, Covenant Israel, after his California winery—Covenant. The soils in Israel reminded him of the Napa Valley, where he produces a renowned Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the Rhone Valley, the home of such classic varieties as Syrah and Viognier. Jeff teamed up with American/Israeli winemaker friend Ari Erle in 2013 to make the first vintage of Covenant Israel Syrah. Jeff met Ari in Napa Valley circa 2008, when Ari was working for such renowned Napa wineries as Colgin and O’Shaughnessy. When Ari moved back to Israel a few years later, the two Winemakers hatched the Covenant Israel plan together. Covenant Israel has been widely acclaimed in the media and among wine aficionados. It is currently the only Israeli wine found on the wine list at Napa Valley’s famous French Laundry. But Covenant’s Israeli Wines can also be enjoyed all over the world—from Israel to Europe and America and even in Japan and Taiwan. Jeff likes to say that Israel is where winemaking began. And so, it makes perfect sense for this California winemaker to have found his way back to his roots.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
