    Winemaker Notes

    Effusive aromas of huckleberry, sarsaparilla and unexpected lily jump from the glass. This intricate blend of red varieties, picked at perfect ripeness, offers beautiful fruit flavors balanced by an ideal level of alcohol. On the palate, bing cherry juiciness plays against rich coffee and caramel notes. A silky mouthfeel leads to subtly textured tannins with a mint of dark chocolate on the finish.

    A delightful accompaniment to both summer BBQ and heartier winter meat dishes.

    The Steelhead brand began as a tribute to steelhead and Coho salmon and our commitment to restoring their habitats in Northern California waterways. Working with state and university organizations as well as Trout Unlimited, our restoration efforts include, rebuilding spawning grounds within creek beds that have led to the return of Steelhead trout during the spring. The successful restoration of these watersheds has inspired others to do the same.

    North Coast

    View all wine

    Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

    Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

    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.
