    With cool winds and fog that travel up the valley and over the vineyards at Heintz Ranch and at W.E. Bottoms, Salinia is perfectly positioned to produce their three signature wines under the Salinia banner: a beautiful Chardonnay and Syrah from the Charles Heintz Vineyard, and a Pinot Noir from a small two and a half acre parcel named W.E. Bottoms Vineyard, which is tucked away on a dead end street at the top of Harrison Grade in the Russian River region.

    Equipped with a degree in Viticulture & Enology from Davis, Kevin Kelley then relocated with his wife Jennifer to Nuits Saint Georges, where he worked with Jean-Nicholas Meo at Domaine Meo-Camuzet in Vosne-Romanee for a few years, while living with Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri-Gouges. Living and working in such close proximity to these two icons gave Kevin incredible access to their lives as vigneron and to their purpose of making wines of place.

    As an extension of his creations at Salinia, Kevin launched the Natural Process Alliance (NPA) a second project of "one-offs" that will continue to vary from vintage to vintage. Evolving expressions of Kevin's interpretations of the vineyards with which he works, this addition to his portfolio allows for such experimental works that include a Skin Fermented Chardonnay from the vineyards of Charles Heintz, and a Red Field Blend of five red and five white grape varieties from the Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard Sunhawk Farms in Mendocino.

    Sonoma Coast

    View all wine

    A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

    Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

    The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

    Syrah/Shiraz

    View all wine

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

    Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

    In the Glass

    Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

    Perfect Pairings

    Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

    Sommelier Secret

    Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
