Carica

Since its founding in 2005, Carica Wines has stayed true to its vision. Producing small lots of single-vineyard designated wines, Carica makes Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Sauvignon Blanc. In addition, Carica Wines produces a Rhône-style red blend, combining Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. Winemaker Charlie Dollbaum has also added a Rosé to the Carica portfolio.Carica Wines is a new winery started in 2005 by two friends, Dick Keenan and Charlie Dollbaum, to produce small lots of premium Sonoma County wines. They produce 2 wines for now. A Sauvignon Blanc and the kick ranch Syrah.

The Syrah is very balanced. Very nice ruby red color. It has a very long finish of dark chocolate, pepper and smoked meat. Big rich dishes would benefit from this wine. I will be excited to try there Sauvignon Blanc when it comes in. After all it is one of my favorite Varietals.

The Piper's Winery

Our wine is from the oldest traditions. The pipes are old, but not as old as wine.
We make our wine the natural way. No additives except water, and no sulfites
added, and certainly we do not take any of the stuff out.
The taste and smell is there. Decanting makes the drinking better and the
tradition is like a warm blanket on a cold day !

Clos Du Bouis

Clos Du Bois seemed to make a very little effort to hide the corporate image with big buildings and parking lots marked 'Corporate visitors only'. Still they make a very decent selection of table wines, especially at their pricing. Have you been to Costco lately? While I have yet to purchase a bottle of Clos Du Bois it has been served to me a number of times visiting friends. My goal is to make a trip to try their higher end wines and their flagship "Marlestone" and their old vine carignane.
