Early, even and excellent describes the 2013 growing season, while fantastic would describe the overall vintage. A warm, dry spring allowed for an early bud break in the vineyard. With the exception of one heat spike in late June, temperatures were ideal throughout the growing season. Warm days and cool nights provided optimal conditions for optimal ripeness at harvest.
Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Sirah are all primary components of this year’s blend, with a touch of Petit Verdot and Surah added for additional depth.
Our 2013 vintage opens with fresh, red fruit characteristics. Aromoas of ripe cherry and cedar on the nose, while layers of black cherry, wild berry, blueberry and a hint of smoked spice coat the palate. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish, making this wine approachable, inviting and ready to enjoy now!
Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Sirah, Petite Verdot and Syrah.

The number “6” in Chinese culture represents happiness or fluidity. It allows us to flow through life with positive thoughts and energy and is also associated with luck and success in the business world.
The number “8” in Chinese culture represents wealth or prosperity. The perfect symmetry of the number implies limitless possibilities and evokes balance and enlightenment.
The number “9” in Chinese culture represents longevity or eternity. Traditionally associated with emperors, the largest single digit is believed to be the luckiest of numbers and inspires harmony and balance in life.
It is said in Chinese culture that the numbers SIX EIGHT & NINE are considered to be lucky or positive numbers.
During our travels through the Far East we experienced this to be true. We’ve named our winery after these numbers in respect for and in tribute to the positive forces each represents.
Similar to the interwoven numbers in our logo, our wines reflect separate elements coming together into one balanced and harmonious whole.
