Winemaker Notes

Savor this medium to full-bodied red wine. It’s smooth with nicely balanced acidity, dark cherry, raspberry and toasty notes with a plush, rich finish.

James Suckling

Some pretty, ripe fruit, although the alcohol comes through a little on the palate. Yet, it’s framed and juicy with a flavorful, fruity finish. Not the most complex wine, but delicious. Vegan wine. Drink now.

Farmhouse, California
Co-founded by Fred Cline and Bobby Cannard, the Green String farming method is based on the long-term health and well-being of plants and soil. Fred is a farmer before anything else and spends the majority of his time outside watching, studying and learning from the land. Bobby has been farming sustainably for 30 years and helped lead the sustainable food movement in Northern California. Farmhouse is named for the old house (depicted in the illustration) at Green String Farm in Petaluma, California. It serves as the school and library where conscientious students from around the globe learn the Green String method of sustainable farming. Students at Green String learn to respect the earth and how to respond to the needs of their environment as they raise food that brings health to local populations. The goal is to teach students how to improve the biology of the lands that they steward while growing healthy food. All plants are grown from seeds or cuttings, including new plantings of grapevines. Fred and Bobby are testing dry-farmed, native root cuttings. The result is slower growth, but deeper roots and better long-term plant health.

California is a winemaking colossus; by itself it is the fourth largest producer in the world. Red wine accounts for 56% of the total by volume, and red grapes 63% of total acres planted. In addition, a number of California red wines are heralded as being among the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world.

While the state’s incredibly diverse geography, soils and microclimates allow for a wide array of styles, the key factor unifying California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season. This leads to well-developed fruit marked both by impressive ripeness and balancing acidity.

The state’s most famous red wine region, of course, is Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king. But California boasts a wealth of other impressive appellations. The much larger and climatically varied Sonoma County also produces world class California Cabernet, along with wonderful examples of California Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.

Fine versions of Cabernet and Zinfandel hail from Paso Robles as well, which is also gaining fame with Rhone varietals like Syrah and Grenache. As for Pinot Noir, terrific examples can be found from AVA’s such as Anderson Valley, Carneros, Santa Lucia Highlands and Sta. Rita Hills. Wineries in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties are making wonderful Syrahs, and the Sierra Foothill appellations are proving to be an experimental hotbed, with Italian and Spanish varietals employed to great effect.

This of course is a mere sketch. The subject of California red wine is as deep and broad as an ocean, and absolutely a joy to explore!
