The Sierra Foothills is one of our favorite regions to find new treasures. Entirely appropriate, given its location at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – the heart of the California gold rush. Here amidst rolling oak-studded hillsides and long forgotten 49er ghost towns, about 100 boutique wineries continue a tradition of viticulture that dates back to the 1840s. Almost all of them are too small for nationwide distribution, but lucky for you, our reach is deep!
We love this AVA because of its reasonable land costs, great sun/wind exposure, and prime drainage – all the check marks for “California hidden gem.” Lot 733 comes to us from a beautiful winery located a short trek from historic Route 49. Produced from estate vineyards at 1300 ft elevation under the hands of a winemaker whose resume is littered with 90+ scores and gold medals for his work in Napa, Sonoma, and the Sierra Foothills alike, this is pure pleasure in a glass and a great opportunity to sample a rare California varietal. A Double Gold medal winner under its winery label, it’s a small lot gem that’s a heck of a deal at $18!
Good nose and lovely color. Let it breath for a bit. Great for the price point.

Richly Flavored Deep Red Wine
We were amazed at the beautiful deep purple color of this wine when we poured it into our decanter. We have been enjoying small glasses of it over the last three days and it continues to improve with exposure to air. It is rich in flavor and dry in character. We are very happy that we purchased a case. We expect it will improve with time in the cellar.
Pours an inky purple. Aroma is granite, some dark fruit, light florals and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is well blended....light chocolate, dark fruit, bright acidity. Well balanced and more enjoyable than I expected.
A very smooth Sirah
Love the beautiful deep color. Others have said it would benefit with some aging but I find it smooth and ready to drink now. Great wine.
Like others stated needs to open up and continues to get better with time. Amazingly lush rich and deep. Beautiful blend complexity and profile. Not everyday wine but a luxurious one to be sipped and savored. Definitely recommend with great blackberry, plum with a highlight of raspberry. Some bold tannins but excellent spice and dimensions
Packs a punch
Agree that this probably needs to sit around and age but still good after a solid decant and a flavorful, heavier meal. Not a sipping-with-a-snack affair.
Dark fruit flavors, jammy but no tannis which is nice. Will be even better after letting it sit gor 6 months.
I was really looking forward to this one and was happy I bought it. I unfortunately didn't buy enough though, as I would have liked to save one for a year before opening.
What a Beauty!
A beautiful pour with such a gorgeous deep purple. I stop to marvel at the color.
The taste is deep and grippy. A perfect end to a long day!
Love their wine
