2011 Humanitas 'Good Earth' Zinfandel Willy's Vineyard
$ 45.00

Humanitas Willy's Vineyard Zinfandel from Chiles Valley has a nose on it that  is a cauldron of aromas. Try mixing up a cinnamon apple with toasted coconut, raspberry compote and a little cola and that might come close. And as the wine sits in the glass, it continues to morph into hints of orange zest, leather, white pepper... all really delightful scents. On the palate, the wine is intense It's like essence of Zinfandel - thick, rich, full-bodied. This is BBQ ribs wine or a good hearty tri-tip marinated and cooked over mesquite. Grab some of your more outgoing friends, grill up the ribs, blare some good old Southern Rock and settle in for the ride!

Winemaker’s Comments


The ‘Good Earth’ tier celebrates specific vineyards showcasing a distinct style of a particular varietal unique to that vineyard site. Willy’s Vineyard in the Chiles Valley of Napa is quintessentially ‘unique’ with ancient ‘old soldier’ head pruned vines really on their last legs, but so expressive and wise in their old age.

Yields are anemic, the vines look like they need canes just to stand up, and several of the vines have simply given up the ghost. But those that remain have fruit is so intense & so in concert with their site that there is no other Zinfandel vineyard quite like it. This is more like Zinfandel extract than ‘regular’ Zin. It is a dazzling expression of the grape Napa used to be known for – the noble Zinfandel!

Wine Description


Willy’s Zinfandel has a nose on it that is a cauldron of smells. Try mixing up a cinnamon apple with toasted coconut, raspberry compote and a little cola and that might come close. And as the wine sits in the glass, it continues to morph into more & more hints of things like orange zest, leather, white pepper…all really delightful scents.

On the palate, the wine is…intense! It is like essence of Zinfandel – thick, rich, full-bodied…it is really a striking wine one can’t help but remember. Spices & raspberries; tobacco & leather; earth & toast…all things we love about this varietal. This is BBQ ribs wine…or a good hearty tri-tip marinated & cooked over mesquite. Nothing shy about this wine – grab some of your more outgoing friends, grill up the ribs, blare some good old Southern Rock (how ‘bout the Allman Bros or some vintage Marshall Tucker?) and settle in for the ride. Willy will deliver a wine experience you will cherish!

2011 Sabina Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
$ 125.00

Winemaker Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and concentrated with well-defined acidity and lush tannins. Dark cherry, currant, and blackberry abound in the aroma, followed by a chocolate, herbal flavor profile wrapped in cassis and black cherry. The blend of vibrant fruit and earthy notes are made complete with a long finish and smooth, lingering tannins. This wine is amazingly approachable now and will age gracefully for a solid 10+ years.

Winemaker Notes

Just like other growers in the Napa Valley during the 2011 harvest season, Sabina Vineyards also had to wait out the rains and time out the grape picking dates just right. The Estate Vineyard was harvested on 2 separate days allowing both lots to have slightly different flavor profiles which was an advantage when making the final blend.

Vineyard Notes


What began with a wet winter and spring, continued with rainfall into mid-June with few high heat events occurring at any point during the growing season. The cool weather delayed bloom and the cloud cover and cool temperatures delayed vine development by several weeks at the onset of the growing season. This set the stage for a long and cooler-than-average growing season with a later-than-average harvest start date.

Waiting patiently to pick until the fruit was mature paid off. Quality was very good with excellent structure and length on the palate. While quantity was somewhat lower than usual, the fruit harvested in 2011 made for well-balanced wines with good intensity, structure and texture with a brightness of flavor.

 

2011 Sabina Pinot Noir
$ 55.00

Winemaker Tasting Notes

The 2011 Sabina Vineyards Oregon Pinot Noir opens with hints of raspberry and rose petal aromas mixed with flavors of cranberry, leather and green tea in the mouth. The wine is smooth and concentrated on the palate. Spice and sweet oak round out the rich, velvety texture producing a spectacular pinot noir for Sabina Vineyards.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were transported from Oregon to Napa where they were then fermented in 4 separate French oak open top tanks. Fermentation lasted 15 days. The 4 lots were blended and bottled after 18 months in barrel.

Vineyard Notes

Roserock is perched on a ridge top towards the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, which is located within the Willamette Valley, home to many of Oregon’s finest Pinot Noir vineyards. In 2011, a warm and dry harvets period gave way to cooler than expected conditions in late September and early October. Fortunately, the fruit was at or near its ripening plateau. A final heat spike at harvest dehydrated many clusters, reducing yields and concentrating flavors.

2012  Humanitas 'Signum' Napa Valley
$ 100.00

Signum: Latin for something that marks or identifies. We're more than comfortable making the 2012 Signum our identifying wine with its succulent, harmonious cacophony of blackberry, ripe wild strawberry, candied current and tobacco leaf. This is the elixir that seems to call out the stars on a cloudy night, and hasten our conversations to new existential depths. It's unfiltered, smooth, smudged with graphite, ready to chill out in your cellar for the next decade or emerge tonight paired with Coltrane's A Love Supreme, and maybe your love supreme?

Composition: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Calistoga, Napa Carneros, Rutherford, Napa Valley
Aging: 22 months in 70% new French oak, unfiltered
Harvest Date: October 18 & 26, 2012

2012 Humanitas 'Good Earth' Pinot Noir Rio Vista Vineyard
$ 55.00

Our 'Rio Vista Vineyard' Pinot Noir from the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, begins on the nose with a mouth watering sensation of strawberry/rhubarb pie and delicious spices baked into the mix. Right behind the pie are some earthy elements and touches of pepper, tobacco, smoked meats and a hint of orange peel. This is duck wine - or perhaps a comfort food roast beef or fresh Alaskan salmon grilled over a wood plank with light herbs. It evolves so much in the glass, maybe a bite of all three! It is at once sultry and at the same time playful, so perhaps pair this with some Madeleine Peyroux and a few of your more quixotic friends!

Winemaker’s Comments

The ‘Good Earth’ tier celebrates specific vineyards showcasing a distinct style of a particular varietal unique to that vineyard site. In Santa Barbara County, there is a special piece of land nestled in a canyon amongst the Santa Rita Hills that is chalk full of…well…chalk (!). It gently ambles to the ocean…it is foggy, cool, sometimes brooding…and perfect for Pinot Noir.

The Rio Vista Vineyard is a star within the highly acclaimed Santa Rita Hills appellation. Betweenthe hillside plantings on chalky soils and the long, cool growing season, the wines off this vineyard are noted for their depth of color and complexity of fruit. Balance is a word that immediately comes to mind – worthy of drinking tonight or aging for decades.

In the mouth, the fruit is very bright up front and the texture is thick in the middle and finish. A little flint & stone pops in followed by cigar wrapper, leather & black pepper. This is a complex wine, yet very easy to drink. It changes a lot in the glass…over and over again.

2012 Humanitas Cabernet Franc Willy's Vineyard
$ 60.00

Oft overlooked, occasionally maligned, but ever adored around here, the Cabernet Franc variety is shown off in its full glory when grown in Willy's Vineyard. There's something seductive about this wine, from its aromas of cinnamon, clove and worn leather to its soft, full mouthfeel and imposing structure. We love the way dusty tannins can melt into tantalizing flavors of cherry cola wiping our sorrows away. Charles Mingus is playing in the background, the aromas of a beautiful meal are wafting in from the kitchen, I'm on my second glass, and I'm pretty sure life doesn't get much better than this.

2012 Humanitas Cabernet Sauvignon 4 Popes Vineyard
$ 60.00

Strawberry, rhubarb, Willie Nelson and Four Popes Cabernet Sauvignon - these are the essential flavors around here lately. Is it the aromas of dark chocolate and worn leather that make us so nostalgic? Perhaps the round, richness of the body, the flavors of dark cherry, tobacco and cassis make us feel the music a bit more deeply? Whatever it may be we hope you'll enjoy this structured beauty with grilled or braised meats, a rustic ratatouille, or whatever feeds your particular soul. Feel free to age for five to seven years, or enjoy right away with a firm decant, and a free spirit.

Harvest Date: October 12, 2012

2012 Humanitas Merlot Truchard
$ 50.00

Any who dare discount the noble Merlot, need not drink here! We love Merlot for its finesse, its mystery, its grace and power. We love the Truchard vineyard where these grapes are grown. This sweet spot, resting on a south facing hillside hidden far away from the road and passers-by provides just the sort of cool evenings and long, warm days that Merlot favors. Soft, sweet, juicy aromas of blueberry, pepper and fig bound from the glass making way for soft black cherry, tobacco leaf and cola on the palate. The ecstasy of its long, complicated finish calls for a dreamy, dramatic aria - Caro Mio Ben perhaps? - and if you can play it on vinyl, even better.

Composition: 99% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Napa Carneros
Aging: 20 months in French and American oak
Alcohol: 14.1% abv
Harvest Date: October 18, 2012

2013 Humanitas 'Good Earth' Pinot Noir Truchard Vineyard
$ 65.00

Our 2012 'Truchard Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Carneros region of Napa Valley begins with leather and smoke, then opens to ripe cranberry and raspberry fruit with a hint of smoked meats. 'Earth' comes to mind - followed by black cherry juice, maybe some ripe tomato, mushrooms and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine is so inviting, with strawberry jam, vanilla, rhubarb, truffle & cinnamon all wrapped around a hint of caramel apple. Think either a big, thick salmon steal grilled with some hickory chips or a tasty rib-eye grilled just past rare. Throw in a little acoustic guitar, good friends, some heady conversation, and you've got the perfect setting to enjoy this truly stunning wine.

Winemaker’s Comments

The ‘Good Earth’ tier celebrates specific vineyards showcasing a distinct style of a particular varietal  unique to that vineyard site. There is something about the soil at Truchard Vineyard that is very clearly distinct to this site and perfect for Pinot Noir. Maybe it is the soil, maybe it is the slope, maybe is the aspect to the sun, maybe it is the hand of the grower…or a combo of all…but it is clear this tastes like the place. 

Truchard Vineyard is renowned as a shining example of all that the Carneros has to offer. Planting to the combination of Martini & Swan clones for this particular site was genius. Concentrated berries yield an intense, stylistic Pinot Noir that is signature ‘Truchard’. It is a dazzling expression of the Carneros.

On the palate, the wine is so inviting, with strawberry jam, vanilla, rhubarb, truffle & cinnamon all wrapped around a hint of a caramel apple. It is at once complex yet so easy to sip. I’m thinking that either a big, thick salmon steak grilled with some hickory chips or a tasty rib-eye grilled just past rare would do the trick. Throw in a little acoustic guitar, some good friends & some heady conversation and you’ve got a pretty nice setting to enjoy this truly stunning wine.

2014 Cuvée Blanc
$ 27.00

Silver Medal - 2016 SF Inter'l Wine Competition

Tasting Notes

Semillon was added to oak-fermented Sauvignon Blanc, producing a complex but refreshing wine. The wine has a brilliant pale straw color, lively nose of fresh melon, and subtle goose-berry notes. It is quite refreshing on the palate where zesty citrus stars on the midpalate, giving way to more generous, rounded layers of vanilla cream. Age-worthy, it peaks in bursts of orange blossom and tangerine, where it makes a lovely partner to oysters on the half shell. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 3-5 years.

2014 Humanitas 'Good Earth" Sauvignon Blanc 'George's Vineyard'
$ 30.00

This Sauvignon Blanc opens on the nose with that bright, effervescent nose of white peaches, pears, a little honeydew melon. On the palate, there is a little spritz - by design - to deliver the exceptional acid and flavors. In the mouth, the delightfully crisp acid marries with the white peaches, pears, honeydew, and a little ruby red grapefruit. This wine is so bright, bouncy, and vibrant it craves music -- honestly, grab some classic being music and put your groove on with abandon and let loose!

Winemaker’s Comments:

The ‘Good Earth’ tier celebrates specific vineyards showcasing a distinct style of a particular varietal unique to that vineyard site.  George Shank’s vineyard in Wooden Valley (Napa) has something in the soil that expresses such a beautiful assembly of flavors and textures it is hard describe.  It could be the Entav clone in conjunction with the site – but the resulting white peach nectar, pear juice and red grapefruit is hard to reproduce.  

George Shanks Vineyard is a jewel. It is one of the best expressions of the Sauvignon Blanc grape available in Napa.  Period.

Wine Description:

The Humanitas 2014 ‘George’s Vineyard’ Sauvignon Blanc opens on the nose with that bright, effervescent nose of white peaches, pears, a little honeydew melon.   On the palate, there is a little spritz…by design…to deliver the exceptional acid and flavors.  And in the mouth, that delightfully crisp acid marries with the white peaches, pears, honeydew…and a little ruby red grapefruit to deliver an unparalleled Sauvignon Blanc experience.  Holy Moly this is a good wine…time for a second glass!

As the wine settles on the palate, an almost creamy texture complements the crisp acidity and bright fruit.  It craves fresh oysters (oh wait, that’s me!) or a simple sole sautéed in light olive oil (ok…make it butter!) or some prosciutto wrapped melon.  But a beautiful local Chevre on a tangy sourdough might just be divine.  One way to find out!  And this bright and bouncy vibrant wine just craves music – honestly, grab some classic swing music and put your groove on with abandon and let loose!

Tasting Notes

Deep, dark red color with garnet tones. Blackcurrant and cherry aromas are beautifully integrated with earthy, chocolate notes. This wine is layered with juicy blackberry, cherry, espresso, and clove notes while remaining varietally correct with subtle tannins and a smooth, fruit-driven mouthfeel.

The Merlot expressed traditional red fruit notes with a touch of oakiness. The wine was fermented in a stainless steel tank and aged in 100% French oak barrels for 17 months. Blending took place in November 2015 where we added Cabernet Franc for its floral element, Petit Verdot for its earthiness, and Malbec for its dark fruit impact. After blending, the wine was returned to the barrels until bottling.

Maybe you're a fan of Jeff Buckley? If you are, you may feel, like we do, that listening to his voice is like catching a ride on a beam of light heading straight to heaven.

2016 Blue Kubli Bench Blanc, White Family Vineyard, Applegate Valley
$ 25.00

The Languedoc is a constant source of inspiration for us at Troon Vineyard as our climate and soils in the Applegate Valley have proven to be the perfect home for the varieties that shine there. One of the classic combinations of the Languedoc is the intertwining of Marsanne and Viognier.

Our 2016 Kubli Bench Blanc, Estate Bottled, Applegate Valley is not a blend, but a co-ferment. We believe co-fermentation creates a wine of greater integration and complexity than simply blending. We harvest two blocks of Marsanne and Viognier crush them by foot, then press them into mature French Oak barrels for native yeast fermentation. In 2016 these vineyard blocks yielded a blend of Viognier 54%, Marsanne 46%. These percentages will vary slightly depending on the fruit these blocks yield vintage to vintage. Our Troon Vineyard estate vineyard is located on the unique soils of the Kubli Bench, which is the second, higher and older bench of the Applegate River and we have given that name to this wine. The granitic soils of the Kubli Bench combined with our long, warm days and cool nights creates wines of great balance and refinement with bright, lifted aromatics.


The 2016 Kubli Bench Blanc, Estate Bottled, Applegate Valley is all about exotic textures and aromatics. Full and rich in the nose and on the palate, it is lifted by a bright acidity that amplifies the many layers in this complex wine.

2016 Docker Hill Pinot Noir Rose
$ 32.00

Tasting Notes

Docker Hill is the top of the hill near relatives property, owners spend time between Mendocino County and New England where they have a chain of hardware stores. The owners love this Rose and wanted Bee Hunter to purchase the all the grapes from the vineyard, however, they decided to share it with a good wine making friend of theirs from Dutton Gold - Dan Goldfield.  This is family land that belonged to the wife’s family (Carson). Her Mom always wanted a vineyard to be planted there. Also, the Miwok and Pomo indians would trade their wares ( pelts and abalone) for goods on this land.

Spicy nose with candy cherry, the mouth is ripe cherry, strawberry, rich mid-palate, long structured finish. Yum! Andy  - “No wonder it's my favorite.”

Tasting Notes

Extra spicy on the nose, Meyer lemon curd, the mouth is citrus, white stone fruit (nectarine peach) floral character on honeysuckle and lemon flower. Rich, long finish. Nice notes of new French oak, combined with some barrel character from the Foudre. Rich long finish, Grapefruit 

Made from Italian clone grapes / 400 gallons / fermented in Foudre

A Foudre is a large wooden vat, it can contain up to 300 hectoliters and more. This word is coming from the German " Fuder " translated as « cartful, containing », having entered in the French language in the 16th C. This type of vat is to be found particularly in the Mediterranean vineyards. The use of Foudre for maturation results from a long wine tradition, but its interest is also linked to the volume, the thickness of staves and the age of the vat.

2016 Troon Blue Label Vermentino Cuvée Rolle, Applegate Valley
$ 20.00

Let it Rolle! Rolle (pronounced “roll”) is the French name for Vermentino and, as the style of our 2016 Troon Blue Label Vermentino, Cuvée Rolle, Applegate Valley was inspired by the delicious Rolle blends of the Languedoc Roussillon region in Southern France we gave our cuvée the French name. The Troon Cuvée Rolle is native yeast fermented in mature French Oak barrels and is a co-ferment of 90% Vermentino (Rolle) and 10% Marsanne. The Marsanne adds a rich, round fruitiness to the wine, which is a beautiful counterpoint to the zesty Vermentino.

A brilliant light gold in color, the aromatics literally leap out of a glass of our Cuvée Rolle. Fresh fragrances of lime and orange from the Vermentino meld with the exotic spices and honeysuckle of the Marsanne, which continue on the palate. The Marsanne brings a soft, voluptuous texture that is lifted by the tangy, crispness of the Vermentino. Together they create a wine that perfectly walks the line between richness and freshness that cannot be resisted.

2016 Troon Vineyard Cuvée Côt Malbec, Applegate Valley, Estate Bottled
$ 35.00

We’ve named our Estate Malbec Cuvée Côt to emphasize how different our style is compared to the many malbec wines coming from South America. Côt is the name that malbec goes by in southern France and our bright, balanced and zesty style of malbec was not only inspired by, but also reflects, the elegance and exuberance you find in the delicious malbec wines from Cahors. True to the Applegate Valley our Cuvée Côt is fresh and mouthwatering with rich dark fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish. We recommend enjoying this wine over the next several years due to the pleasures to be found in its charming, youthful personality.

As with all of our wines, our Estate Malbec was crushed by foot, then fermented by our native, natural yeasts in small fermenters. No additives, including commercial yeasts, sulfur, tannins, enzymes, sugar or acids were added to the fermenters. It is bottled after aging in mature French Oak Burgundy barrels for eighteen months.

2016 Troon Vineyard Estate Cuvée Pyrénées Tannat/Malbec Co-ferment, Kubli Bench, Applegate Valley
$ 60.00

No other wine speaks so clearly about the terroir and character of the Kubli Bench in the Applegate Valley than the distinctive co-ferment of Tannat and Malbec, Cuvée Pyrénées. In the shadow of the Pyrénées Mountains in southwestern France Tannat and Malbec reign as the premier grape varieties in the famed appellations of Madiran and Cahors and we named this wine in their honor. Cuvée Pyrénées was formally known as MT, but its new name better
reflects the traditions and inspiration that created this one-of-a-kind Oregon co-ferment.  Troon is firmly committed to co-fermentation instead of blending as they believe adds many layers of complexity and texture than cannot be obtained in any other way. Their 2016 Cuvée Pyrénées is svelte yet substantial wine with brilliant lifted aromatics. More than cellar-worthy, with a bit of patience this wine will develop into a wine of even greater complexity than it already possesses.

Introducing a totally new wine from Troon Vineyard our 2016 Troon Riesling, Whole Grape Ferment (Orange Wine), Applegate Valley is our first 'skin-fermented' white wine. We crafted this "Orange Wine" much the same as we do our red wines. The result is an exotic wine that combines the bright freshness or a white wine with the structure and body of a red.

Introducing a totally new wine from Troon Vineyard our 2016 Troon Riesling, Whole Grape Ferment (Orange Wine), Applegate Valley is our first 'skin-fermented' white wine. We crafted this 'Orange Wine' much the same as we do our red wines. The result is an exotic wine that combines the bright freshness of a white wine with the structure and body of a red. You'll know right away why they call them orange wines when you see its orange tinted color. Below you see the wine fermenting on its skins in small fermenters where it was punched down by hand daily. After a brief stay in mature French Oak barrels, we are releasing this exciting new wine for your springtime enjoyment. This very dry, full-flavored white wine will literally match with almost any food you can think of and we can't think of a better wine to take on any range of appetizers at your next party and it certainly would be the perfect match for a dinner of tapas.

2017 Estate Roussanne, Kubli Bench Applegate Valley
$ 35.00

Roussanne is usually found as part of a blend with Marsanne or Viognier, but Troon could not resist letting their Estate Roussanne have its turn in the spotlight as a solo act. One taste of this exotic wine and you’ll know why we decided to bottle this wine as a single varietal. Roussanne is one of the most highly-regarded varieties in the Rhône and Languedoc regions of southern France. There Roussanne adds structure to the more voluptuous Marsanne. Certainly, the 2017 Roussanne exhibits that classic, firm structure, but this fruit,
grown on some of our most gravelly soils, is also richly flavored and filled with enticing aromatics and flavors. While we feel this wine will mature beautifully over the next two years, we actually can’t resist drinking it now!

2017 Troon Vineyard Estate Sangiovese
$ 25.00

We know that more often than not, Italian varieties grown outside of Italy can disappoint. They lack the verve of these varieties grown on their native soils. We feel this New World problem is due to poor site selection and the use of winemaking techniques more in line with big Napa Valley Cabernet than the more nuanced winemaking techniques used in Italy.  Of course, those issues are flipped on their head at Troon Vineyard. Our moderate Southern Oregon climate, higher altitude, and natural winegrowing and winemaking methods
gives wines with the same lively acidity and freshness that defines the great wines of Italy.  Our 2017 Estate Sangiovese is lithe and structured, not unlike a Chianti Classico in weight and color. Of course, this is Applegate Valley
Sangiovese so it has its own bright, refreshing personality and expressive fruit character. We recommend enjoying this wine over the next several years to take full advantage of its zesty personality. Food matching could not be easier, just bring out your favorite Italian recipes!

2017 Troon Vineyard Estate Zinfandel
$ 20.00

Just one sip is all it will take for you to know this is not a California Zinfandel. Bright, fresh and mouthwatering, Oregon Zinfandel from our Applegate Valley Estate Vineyard rivals the best Côtes du Rhône wines for sheer pleasure and value. Troon Vineyard is a historic site for Oregon Zinfandel as Dick Troon first planted Zinfandel vines here in 1972. Today, from Dick’s old vines, we produce our Troon Vineyard Estate Zinfandel. The heart of this wine is from our vineyard’s block 1, which was planted in 1987. These over thirty-year-old vines give our Estate Zinfandel its unique combination of rich flavors balanced by a vivacious counterpoint of zesty acidity. The wild card in this wine is a 3% co-ferment of Petite Sirah that gives structure and a subtle earthy character.

2017 Troon Vineyard Vermentino, Applegate Valley, Estate
$ 18.00

Our Malbec is very different from the chunky, fruit-forward malbec wines flooding the country from South America. Our 2015 Rogue Valley Malbec is more classically proportioned wine, reminding more of the delicious wines of Southwestern France. Our Malbec is grown on the granitic soils of the Kubli Bench. With a smaller yield than in 2014, this vintage is more defined and elegantly nuanced. Along with tannat, malbec produces Oregon’s richest, deepest wines. While powerful by Oregon standards, our 2015 Malbec is still graceful and balanced, with plenty of refreshing acidity to carry its rich flavors.

2017 Troon Vineyard, Kubli Bench Blanc
$ 25.00

The marriage of Marsanne and Viognier is traditional in southern France, but this combination has found a unique and distinctive personality on the Kubli Bench of the Applegate Valley.  Often these varieties can produce very soft wines, but on the gravel and granite in our vineyard block 12 both of these varieties have discovered their backbone in this zesty and structured wine named for the Kubli Bench soil that gives this wine its enchanting combination of richness and brightness. The rows of Marsanne and Viognier grow next to each other and are harvested at the same time then, as is always our preference, are co-fermented. This is an amazingly versatile wine that matches beautifully with everything from seafood to spicy Asian dishes. We recommending enjoying our Kubli Bench in its youth to enjoy the purity of its fresh fruit flavors.
