Fumé Blanc

100% Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc grapes....This clean, crisp wine is a testimony to the FTV winemaker. Aged 10 months in French oak for lots of flavors!!

Wine: Fumé Blanc

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard: Frog's Tooth Vineyards

Appellation: Calaveras County/Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: California is the leading producer of Sauvignon Blanc. Wine produced from the Sauvignon Blanc grape is also known as Fumé Blanc. Fumé Blanc was first made by the Robert Mondavi Winery in 1968. Mondavi decided to try to tame the Sauvignon Blanc aggressiveness with oak barrel aging and released the wine under the name Fumé Blanc. Experience the floral / honeysuckle nose; swirl and smell the crisp dry grapefruit.

Fumé Blanc Food Pairings: Fumé Blanc pairs well with fish or cheese, particularly Chevre. It is also known as one of the few wines that can pair well with sushi.

Process: Whole cluster pressed and aged in French Oak barrels for 10 months.


Pinot Grigio

You've set the temperature in the spa @ 102° and feel the need for something cool and special. This rich, round full-bodied white wine is delicately fragrant and mildly floral with light lemon-citrus flavors...OMG!!

Wine: Pinot Grigio

Varietal: Pinot Grigio

Vineyard: Dragone Ranch

Appellation: Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: Pinot Grigio is a variant of the Pinot Noir, with grape clusters colored bluish gray, pink and brown. Often described as delicately fragrant and mildly floral with a light lemon citrus flavor, Pinot Grigio wine is a dry, crisp white wine often high in acidity and low in tannins. Pinot Grigio should be consumed within two years of its vintage. Pinot Grigio is second only to Chardonnay in capital and consumption.

Pinot Grigio Food Pairings: Pairs well with pork, chicken and all seafood, whether raw, lightly sautéed, grilled or lightly sauced with cream or butter.

Process: Whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel.


Viognier

We've done it again: made an exceptional Viognier! Beautiful opening of honeysuckle, ripe melon and pears lures you to taste the dry nectar of pear, almonds and a bit of spice…

Wine: Viognier

Varietal: Viognier

Vineyard: Frog's Tooth Vineyards

Appellation: Calaveras County/Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: Your nose tells you the wine will be sweet -- like a Muscat -- but your palate is surprised to encounter a dry nectar offering flavors that resemble a mixture of ripe pears, lemon-lime citrus, almonds, spice, peaches and apricots, sometimes with a honeyed nuance. Lush and viscous on the palate with more body than most Chardonnays, the wine's after-taste is not at all cloying, but fresh and vibrant, impelling you to take another sip.

Viognier Food Pairings: Spicy cuisine, shellfish.

Process: Whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel.


Barbera

This medium to heavy bodied Italian varietal has a great ruby red color and flavors of berry. One of the most food friendly wines available. A great BBQ wine.

Wine: Barbera

Varietal: Barbera

Vineyard: Gold Hill Vineyards

Appellation: Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: Barbera is a red wine grape from Italy that has found a home in the California Sierra Foothills. A fruit forward wine; it has many of the flavor characteristics you would find in a Cabernet Sauvignon (blackberry, blueberry, and raspberry) but with higher acid levels. The higher acid levels make it an especially good match for full-flavored foods. Other characteristics include light tannin levels, deep garnet colors and medium to full body.

Barbera Food Pairings: Good acidity makes it a natural with food, particularly with pizzas, pastas, grilled poultry and meats, or a slice of prosciutto and parmigana.

Process: Lightly crushed then bin fermented. Aged in a combination of French and American Oak for 18 months.


Sangiovese

A classic Italian fruity wine that boasts gentle notes of black cherry and plum with a touch of spiciness and semi-sweet finish.

Wine: Sangiovese

Varietal: Sangiovese

Vineyard: Rocky Hill Vineyards

Appellation: Calaveras County/Sierra Foothill AVA

Description: Sangiovese is best known as being the fruity, fresh wine that is at the core of all traditional Italian Chianti wines. Sangiovese is a hefty red wine, and goes well with well-seasoned foods. Sangiovese should be served at 59°F and is good for up to 10 years.

Sangiovese Food Pairings: Sangiovese goes well with chicken or eggplant parmigana or spicy pastas.

Process: Berries are lightly crushed and bin fermented then aged in French Oak barrels for 18-20 months.


Grenache

100% Estate Grown Grenache grapes aged in neutral oak barrels. A medium-bodied fruit forward wine teeming with strawberry and raspberry flavors with hints of black pepper.

Wine: Grenache

Varietal: Grenache

Vineyard: Frog's Tooth Vineyards

Appellation: Calaveras County/Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: One of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. Grenache ripens late, so needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain and the California Sierra Foothills. It is generally soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content delivering a fruit forward wine teeming with strawberry and raspberry flavors with hints of black pepper.

Grenache Food Pairings: This versatile wine pairs with spicy foods from Cioppino to Cajun Catfish to Italian cuisine; also great with lighter meats such as chicken, turkey and pork.

Process: Lightly crushed then bin fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels.


Meritage

A Bordeaux blend, pronounced like heritage, consists of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with 10% each of Merlot, Malbec, and Petite Verdot (some of the finest Bordeaux varietals). Soft tannins with a floral nose and packed with fruit flavors!... How about that silk screened bottle?

Wine: Meritage

Varietal:

Vineyard: Bryce Station

Appellation: Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: Red Meritage is made from a blend of at least two, but perhaps more, of the following more common Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec. No one variety can make up more than 90% of the blend.

Red Meritage Food Pairings: A full rich blackberry flavor complements both fowl and beef dishes. An excellent wine to pair with bleu cheese.

Process: Lightly crushed and bin fermented then aged in French Oak barrels from 18 – 20 months. Each varietal is fermented and aged separately and blending is done a month or two prior to bottling.


Malbec

This Bordeaux varietal exudes flavors and aromas of blackberry, cherry, plum and chocolate. Deemed a "blender" in France and a "star" in Argentina, Malbec is a Frog's Tooth favorite. It is a medium to full bodied wine with soft tannins and high acidity.

Wine: Malbec

Varietal: Malbec

Vineyard: George Town/ Duarte Vineyards

Appellation: Sierra Foothills AVA

Description: One of the traditional big six "Bordeaux varietals", Malbec has characteristics that fall somewhere between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to Claret blends. As a standalone varietal Malbec is a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic.

Malbec Food Pairings: Definitely a red meat wine that is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy Mexican, Cajun, Indian or Italian fare (especially with tomato-based sauces).

Process: Lightly crushed and bin fermented. Then aged in French oak for 18 months.


Tawny Toad - Dessert Wine

This is a blend of four Portuguese varietals (tinta cao, tinta madera, souza and touriga), aged with brandy to make a super 10 year old tawny Port...oops we can't say that anymore!! Enjoy with your favorite dessert, cigar, or just sit back and sip!!

Wine: Tawny Toad

Varietal: Touriga, Tinta Madeira, Souzao, Tinta Cao

Vineyard: Ficklin Vineyards

Appellation: Madera AVA

Description: OOPS! We can't say Port (that has to be made in Portugal). Our Tawny Toad is a sweet dessert wine made from four Portuguese wines, fortified with brandy and aged in wood casks. Prolonged wood aging is the key ingredient that differentiates Tawny Toad from bottle-aged ports. It is vital to start out with excellent grapes in order to withstand the rigors of extended wood-aging, maintaining fruit flavors and supple structure. As a Tawny Port oxidizes in cask, the color of the wine slowly evolves from a purplish-ruby color to a lighter topaz-amber-brown.

Food Pairings: Delicious after dinner aperitif or served over ice cream and chocolate sauce. Great to reduce for red meat sauces. Ask about our “secret” recipe.

Process: Portuguese varietals especially blended by FTV.
