Enjoy With

Dive into the spice cabinet with BBQ chicken with pomegranate molasses to labneh with fresh herbs & cracked black pepper. Go green with grilled radicchio with creamy goat cheese, raw shaved brussels sprouts splashed with grapefruit juice and shaved pecorino.

Drink When

You’re washing the dirt out from under your nails after a day digging in the garden, firing up the grill, and gathering whoever you call family for an outdoor feast.

Martha's Notes

For many years varietally ‘correct’ Zinfandel from the New World meant a wine that was opulent, oakey, higher alcohol, and often sweet with residual sugar. While that definition might suit some, my goal is to make wines that represent the territory where it grows in the most transparent way possible. Simply, I want to express my native state of California. If that means the wine isn’t ‘correct’ by some standard but instead captures the local essence of the varietal? Rejoice!
