What our customers are saying:
Inky purple color in the glass. Aromas of rube blackberry, black currant, and clove. On the palate, rich and full bodied with flavors of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, plum, and black cherry, with clove, baking spice, leather, and tobacco. Bright acidity makes it quite food friendly; we enjoyed it with grilled rib eye steak. Long finish of black fruit and black pepper. -Kent R.
One of the best Calaveras wines in memory, this full-bodied Cab has great concentration and a firm but creamy texture. It offers plenty of immediate appeal and also bodes well for continued aging. Blueberry, vanilla and dark chocolate dominate the flavors while fine-grained tannins shape the mouthfeel. Best through 2026. -JIM GORDON

Rorick Heritage Vineyard, Calaveras AVA
At an elevation of 2,000 feet, Rorick Heritage Vineyard is a genuine hidden gem of California producing extremely low yields and wines of character. Rorick Heritage Vineyard is located in Calaveras County, just outside the town of Murphys in the Sierra Foothills. It is situated on limestone soils beneath a top layer of schist. The alpine growing season combined with limestone soils leave an indelible mark on the wines grown at Rorick Heritage Vineyard. Beautiful Aromatics, textural presence, and bright natural acidity are all hallmarks of the site.
