2018 Diablo Sunset
Diablo Sunset, a symbol of East Contra Costa living. A sight we all marvel about, when the spring sky turns orange and red in the evening hours, and Mt Diablo is painted in silhouette.
Our wine compliments this phenomenon. The Diablo Sunset is a blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes, each with a long history and made world famous here in California. The wine embodies the strong characteristics of both varietals, and is well suited for being paired with a wide variety of Italian to Mexican dishes.

Valdepeñas is a Spanish grape variety. It is a thick skinned variety that makes for deep red colored wines with moderate tannins, earthy in aroma varying from vanilla to tobacco and leather.
We choose this grape variety mainly for its use in Port wine, but because of its smooth, pleasant quality and varying aroma, Valdepeñas serves well with pasta or meat dishes and as a wine to sip alone. A well balanced flavorful red, a must try!

2019 Touriga Nacional
Touriga Nacional is a red grape variety, considered by many to be Portugal’s finest national treasure. Despite the low yields from its small grapes, it plays a big part in the blends used for ports, and is increasingly being used for table wine in the Douro and Dão. It has a marvelous floral aroma and a fresh light tart flavor of fruit, which makes an ideal summer wine and great for charcuterie boards.
2018 Tinta da Vida
Tinta Roriz, Tinta Cão and Souzão have long been well known for their use in Port wine. It is a combination of their acid structure, coloring, spicy flavors and aromas that make them ideal for creating exceptional Port wines.
By luck we were left with some extra grapes in 2015 and what else is there to do, but become a bit creative. After weeks and months of continued adapting and tinkering with this blend, the result is a fantastic Portuguese red wine, so full and complex that your taste buds fight trying to decipher its flavors.
We named this red wine Tinta da Vida, Ink of life, due to its dark color, grape varieties and unpredictable ways – just like life! We are excited the way this wine compliments our portfolio and its possibilities.
This wine pairs great with the less ordinary dishes, like:
- Braised pork chops with crispy sage
- Beef Wellington, with pâté and duxelles, wrapped in puff pastry
- Lamb in spiced orange and thyme tagine
- Spicy chickpea and spinach stew
