Additional Information

"The semillon and zin were picked and fermented together whole cluster from a small knoll above the winery. The Roussanne (Lake county)was fermented on skins yet, pressed sweet and went dry in barrel while the Carignan (old vine deanda vineyard Mendocino) was a classic open top whole cluster ferment. Blending was done to achieve the brightest moments from each grape! 6 month in barrel for all lots, with 20 ppm on the RU before blending, and 5 ppm after blending for a total in the blend of 20ppm.

I was very happy to make a North Coast Red Blend as this style is close to my heart and bears more talking about. Im very interested in expressing a macro picture of larger parts of California, and the North Coast AVA allows me to play with an imagined idea of fresh wine in Ca. While the 3 sites blended have totally different unique terroirs, together I hope they say something about the potential of the region as a whole to provide happy approachable yet mysterious wines!"
Johnny got his start in wine in the tasting rooms of the Salinas Valley as a bored toddler eating oyster crackers off the floor while his father and friends casually imbibed taste after glass of the local red. This guy got his start with organic foods, which lead to fine cheese which lead to the wines of France, Spain, and Italy, which in turn lead to the soils of the vineyards of Sonoma, Marlborough, Lodi CoCo. and Monterey. After a bit of blood and sweat at Brooklyn Oenology, Martinelli, Huia, and Failla, JW figured it was time to put his money where his mouth is... and Glassmaker Wine Company is what happened!
