2015 Pangloss Zinfandel, Monte Rosso Vineyard

Cases Crafted: 278

Wines from this famed vineyard are distinct in their structure, with balanced acidity that brings out firm, lingering tannins. They’re also incredibly smooth and easy to drink when young, though a few years of aging will demonstrate their true potential.

2014 Pangloss Syrah

Cases Crafted: 228
Member Only

Fans of our Rhône-inspired blends should definitely check out this inaugural offering. Syrah plays a supporting role in our popular Tenacity blend, but here it gets the opportunity to shine in the spotlight. Through his relationship with an acclaimed local grower, winemaker Erich Bradley accessed a coveted Syrah vineyard known for producing sophisticated, savory wines. It is Pangloss’ very first 100% Syrah, and we hope you love it as much as we do.

2013 Pangloss Cabernet Sauvignon, Monte Rosso Vineyard

Cases Crafted: 297
Member Only

With this wine, we proudly honor Sonoma’s winemaking history. The Monte Rosso Vineyard has been at the epicenter of Sonoma viticulture since the first vines were planted there in the 1880s. It’s easy to see why when you taste this rich, crowd pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon – a beautiful expression of a vineyard in balance. As with other great Monte Rosso bottlings, we expect it to age gracefully for decades to come.

2014 Pangloss Pinot Noir, Charles Vineyard 1.5L

Bottles Crafted: 24
Member Only

Our close friends Bill and Nancy Charles have meticulously farmed their 15-acre vineyard near the town of Boonville in Anderson Valley since 2001. In that time it has become one of the most sought-after sites for Pinot Noir in California, and we are very fortunate to have access to it. We harvest two specific blocks, both planted to the Pommard clone. This particular clone lends an earthy complexity that is one of the signatures of outstanding Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.
