Overview of the Wine
Is it dark pink? Or is it light red? This is the fourth vintage of Superbloom, our zero-zero wine that defies categorization. You know that moment right after sunset, before the stars are out in full — what poets call the “violet hour”? That’s the moment to open this wine. Call it a nighttime rosé, if you’d like. Drink it with friends for a perfect summer apéro.

Our wild idea with this wine was to co-ferment red and white Rhône varieties from a single vineyard, then to keep completely natural by adding nothing and taking nothin away in the cellar. All vintages of this wine contain about a third red and two-thirds white grapes. We call this “California Table Wine,” but don’t be fooled by the humble name. Superbloom is a complex, utterly unique wine that expresses the specialness of Love Ranch vineyard in the sierra Foothills. The red grapes give this wine a spicy nose and plenty of texture, while the white grapes add beautiful salted watermelon and rhubarb notes, plus a clean, mineral finish.

Superbloom is named after the wildflowers that erupt in the desert after a wetter-than-normal rainy season. They’re a sign that winter is over and warmer, happier days are ahead. We know that spring has not yet sprung in a lot of the country — but in the meantime, you can sip Superbloom and dream of warm California nights.
