This Zinfandel draws primarily from a wide selection of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing Zinfandel blocks. The vines are planted on their own roots. The lots that we hand-selected are the results of sensitive farming practices and the Fruit was discriminately picked.
The 2010 “Sideways Lot 69” Reserve Zinfandel shows wonderful raspberry, blackberry, currant, and walnut; with roasted coffee characters. Aging in French oak has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes.
Enjoy with your best cuts of beef and finest cheese.
This medium-bodied Reserve Chardonnay is lush and round on the palate, while displaying the typical intensity of fruit and spicy oak aromas. Notes of creamy lemon bar and papaya are layered with subtle hints of hazelnut. While the finish is long and clean, the flavors become increasingly full and complex with time. Our experience is that these wines improve in the bottle for at least five years, although they can grow in complexity and depth for possibly ten years or more.

Carignane was the most widely planted red varietal in France. It also is grown in Italy, Spain, Algeria and Israel. It once was the most planted variety in the new world. Today, only a few of the ancient Carignane vineyards remain in California. Traditionally, Carignane, has been used as a blending grape because of its excellent yields, great acidity, and firm tannins. Van Ruiten Family is one of a few wineries to vinify this varietal.
Our 2009 Ancient Vine Carignane hails from a 100 year old head trained vineyard. Only 300 cases were produced from this four acre vineyard. Its Dark ruby color opens to aromas of plum, raspberry, and spice. The old vine elicits a taste of Lodi terroir, dark blackberry and cherry fruit flavor with a long smooth tannin finish.
