Our 2018 Estate Pinot Noir shows a depth of color, aroma and flavor to rival the best producers in the Russian River Valley. A beautiful garnet color leads to aromas of red currant, earl grey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cedar.

Per usual for this cuvee you can tell this will be delicious upon first whiff. Santa Rosa plum, lilac, toasted rosemary, shiitake mushrooms and roasted Aleppo pepper in the nose give way to juicy flavors of fresh plum, dark cherry, blackberry tart, toasted coriander and grilled meat. The luscious, soft tannins lead to a vanilla and rose petal flecked velvety finish that very slowly fades away. Juicy with a solid mineral core.
Classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of cassis, red raspberry, and blackberry syrup are balanced with French oak tones of spice, dried herbs and vanilla. On the palate, one can find black current, root-beer, and a touch of lavender. Black plum, more dried herbs and cocoa linger in the finish with silky tannins, which set up this "last pick" wine for ageing of up to 10 years.

Delightfully aromatic nose. Scents of red plum, raspberry compote, rhubarb, bay leaf and lavender. A pop of brightness introduces the soft palate with flavors of fresh raspberry, bing cherry, warm chapparal and hints of fennel pollen. Complex notes of earth, dark-chocolate and red fruit linger in the finish. Drink now with chicken, pork or lamb dishes or stock up and age for at least a decade.

A bouquet of rose petals, oil cured olives, river rock, cranberry and raspberry jumps out of the glass as you swirl and sniff. Restrained and elegant red and black fruit flavors drape over the tongue with very well integrated oak notes and velvety tannins. Beautiful concentration and a lingering finish make this another delicious vintage of Petite Sirah.
Family Story: On August 15, 1926 a truly historic event occurred at Foppiano Vineyards. Federal treasury agents enforced and supervised the dumping of over 100,000 gallons of red wine. The wine quickly overwhelmed the winery drains and flowed out of doors and down the streets. It became the most popular place in Healdsburg as locals rushed to fill bottles and buckets of wine. The blend that was lost that day was made up of our best estate as is this blend.
Mouthwatering aromas of black cherry and plum are followed by luscious flavors of ripe black berries, caramel, and hints of clove. This wine shows a remarkable balance of velvety tannins, vibrant acidity, and a truly luscious and resonant mouthfeel.
An explosion of black fruit, cinnamon, rose petals, dried thyme and warm tar on the nose gives way to a full, structured palate. Flavors of dark plum, blackberries, blueberries and a dense minerality lead into a softer mid palate, well integrated oak and balanced acidity. The lingering finish tastes pleasantly of plums and mulling spices. Great for grilling.

The 2021 Petite Sirah is a sophisticated and sumptuous example of the varietal, one of the most complex examples of Petite Sirah you will find. Blueberry and baked huckleberry lead the aromas, with a hint of white pepper, dried herbs and toasted bread. The flavors mimic the aromas with a substantial mid-pallet of blueberry, black tea, baked cherry, fruit preserves and licorice. The wine finishes with pie crust, oak spice and tannins developing into a pleasant textural polish.

The aroma of our 2019 Zinfandel centers on red raspberry, jammed dark fruit, cinnamon spice and clove. Hints of sliced ripe plum, black tea and lavender oil adds to its complexity. Flavors of blueberry, elderberry, and cranberry are enhanced with oak spice and baking notes from the barrels. These flavors marry with soft tannins for a long and mouthwatering finish.
