    Winemaker Notes

    This 100% Sangiovese was aged for more than a year in French oak barrels. Picked at peak ripeness in the Sierra Foothills and Mendocino County, the fruit's delicate spicy flavors complement the aromas of cherry pie and nutmeg. Tannins are soft but firm--just right for serving with duck, pork roast and pasta marinara.

    "Blends grapes from the Sierra Foothills and Mendocino to produce a balanced. rich and harmonious drink with flavors of black cherry, tobacco and spices. In Chianti-like fashion, it's bone dry, light and delicate of structure, and rather bitter. The color is pale. This is a well-made wine that would be good with a wide variety of foods, especially hard Italian cheeses."

    Pepi, California
    Pepi Winery Image
    Pepi Winery is well-known for crafting the quintessential California Sangiovese, stellar Sauvignon Blanc, and crisp Pinot Grigio, and winemaker Chris Johnson is committed to using environmentally sound vineyard practices along with an unpretentious style of winemaking to create everyday wines with intensity and focus.

    A winding path through the world of wine brought Johnson in January 2001 to Pepi (owned by Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates in Napa Valley). Chris went to work in 1996 for Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates. Less than two years later he took on the job of winemaker at the original Kendall-Jackson winery in Lake County.

    Pepi is something different, however, Chris said he loves its spontaneous, risk-taking approach to wine. He favors the crisp, unfettered and natural character of those varietals in his Pepi bottlings. And his experience with Pinot Grigio in New York and Sauvignon Blanc in Lake County prepared him to master two of Pepi's leading wines. It's all part of forming a closer kinship with the creative magic/science of winemaking. "The natural cycles, the creatively, skill, great people, beautiful land - all the connections come together in wine," Chris said. "Just punching down, you see the skins, the red juice bubbling away. There's something about that whole transformation. It's cool."

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
