2014 Ancient Vines Zinfandel, Bedrock Vineyard, Sonoma Valley, Dashe Cellars
We harvested each varietal separately into half ton picking bins. At the winery, the grapes were hand-sorted on conveyors, and then fermented using the native "wild" yeasts on the grapes. At dryness, the wines were gently pressed in a membrane press and pumped to traditional 60-gallon oak barrels. Each varietal was kept separate, and we blended the wines carefully to develop a wine with great texture, intense fruit, and lovely balance between the firm acidity and the lovely sweet and spicy fruit.
The wine was aged for 10 months in one-year or older French oak barrels to maintain the vibrancy of the fruit. As the wine aged, it deepened in color and developed a complexity and firm structure that we believe will help the wine improve with up to ten years of bottle age. This is one of our most lovely and interesting wines made at Dashe Cellars, and we look forward to making wine from the vineyard for many years in the future.

2012 Merlot Russian River - Mietz Cellars
When we first opened the winery in 1989 we made merlot from the 11 acres right outside of our winery. That is all we grew and the only varietal we made for quite a few years. Merlot became the darling and we had great success in that market with a very good merlot. In the early 2000s, Merlot lost its darling status and was waning in the market place and then came THE MOVIE and merlot fell out of favor, even if it was a good merlot. We have not made merlot since 2002. We no longer have a merlot vineyard but were able to source merlot from vineyards right by the winery. We hope you enjoy it. Merlot is still a wonderful red wine that is enjoyable to drink.
This 2012 vintage was picked in small lots from two vineyards, in September, right before the early rains. Both vineyards are on Limerick Lane. This wine is very drinkable now but as it keeps maturing it will manifest the red cherry, cranberry element you taste now and will develop into full flower. The vintage was very cool with a long growing season that allowed the fruit elements to develop very slowly. The nature of this vintage allowed these flavors to be delivered with delicacy and balance. This merlot is full bodied and more European in style with moderate alcohol and refined tannin structure.

Northern Piedmont-style wine. This wine's deep garnet color clings to the side of your glass, all the while filling your nose with the dense saucy fruit aromas of Bing cherries and raspberries. 50% new French oak was used iin the aging process so that no fruit character would be stripped from this fruit bomb of a red wine..

2014 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley - Dashe Cellars
In a year with almost perfect ripening conditions, the 2014 zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley is intense, mouth filling yet very balanced a classic example of zinfandel from one of the best places in California to grow the varietal.
2013 Zinfandel - Florence Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley Dashe Cellars
The Florence vineyard in the north of Dry Creek Valley is one of our favorite single vineyard sites for Zinfandel in Sonoma county. Each year, it makes exceptionally vibrant and intense zinfandel, with characteristic aromatics of lavender, violets, and thyme or lavender spice.
We used our special custom made gridded tanks to ferment the wines. These tanks, outfitted with stainless-steel grids that can be raised or lowered on top of the crushed grapes, allow us to submerge the cap of grape skins beneath the surface of the fermenting wine. We extract color, body, and complexity from the grapes without extracting too much of the drying tannins found in the seeds. The result are intense and complex wines that feel velvety and round on the tongue rather than harsh or tannic.
We conducted the primary and secondary fermentation using only the natural populations of yeast and bacterias on the grapes, as always, to enhance the vineyard-specific flavors we get from these grapes. At dryness, the wine was gently pressed in a membrane press and pumped to older 60-gallon French oak barrels.
The wine was aged for 14 months in oak before being racked up to tank for bottling. This is an ideal wine to have with grilled lamb, intense sauces, or any other food that can stand up to its substantial fruit and acidity.
