Winery Notes:
Our Vintage Port is a massive full-bodied wine with intense aromas of chocolate, spice, and berries. It explodes with concentrated flavors that coat your mouth and linger for minutes after swallowing. It is made and destined to evolve for decades.

If anything, our Vintage Port has been our signature wine dating back to our first vintage in 1981. In the late 70's, my dad got interested in Portuguese port wines, but was disappointed in the quality of California versions that were being made from Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. They were simple and one dimensional. He reached out to UC Davis and ended up planting five traditional Portuguese varieties in our Amador County vineyard. We ended up bottling that first vintage from 1981, after the winery that bought the grapes filled bankruptcy and my dad "reclaimed" the wine. It was a big hit, and over the past 35 years we've bottled 14 Vintage Ports.
