What our customers are saying:
92pts Wine Enthusiast – Editor’s Choice
“This medium-bodied, ultrasmooth wine is rich and relaxed, offering superripe cherries and roasted
plums along with tilled earth, cedar and sage accents that lend compelling complexity.
Soft tannins and a sense of polish make it easy to drink.” Editors’ Choice. —J.G.

7% Petite Sirah
Element 79 Vineyard, Fair Play AVA
Just south of Placerville, at an elevation of 2400ft, you will find the Fair Play AVA. High mountainsides and deep granite soils
develop grapes for intense wines. It’s astounding to us that this area has been growing incredible wine grapes since the California Gold Rush, yet it is still a relatively
unknown, untapped goldmine of high-quality fruit!
