  Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit comes from the Tuolumne County vineyards of Ron Peterson whose vineyard is located on the picturesque Old Wards Ferry Road and from John Griffin whose vineyard is nestled in the hollows of Potato Ranch Road. We have blended the fruit from these two vineyards and have achieved a classic Cab to be enjoyed by all who lean to the traditional Cab taste. This is the favorite of Dennis, the Vineyard and Winery Operations Manager.
This wine and its name were inspired by a family member from our Italian heritage, Enrico Caruso. Caruso, a well known opera singer in the early 1900’s, was first cousin to Jim Costello’s Great Grandmother. This wine is a blend of California foothill white varietals designed to provide a light, crisp taste for all occasions. The ‘Great Caruso’ was known as a tenor’s tenor. This wine will not make you a ‘great’ singer, but it will put a twinkle in your eye.
The Merlot is also estate grown and is Pam’s favorite. It has great color and soft fruity flavors. Historically the grape comes from the Bordeaux region of France but widely grown and enjoyed in California.
The Sangiovese grape originates in the Tuscany Region of Italy where it is the dominant fruit used in the well known Chianti wines. Our Sangiovese is all estate grown. It has rich and complex flavors that are easy on the pallet. This is Jim’s favorite. It is especially good with Pasta and Pam’s Italian Sauce.
Starting with pleasant aroma of roasted coffee, this wine has a creamy texture and slilky smooth finish. This fruit comes from the vineyard of La Bella Rosa on Old Wards Ferry Rd. in Sonora
We honor the family name of Tartaglia, lost but not forgotten on Ellis Island in 1903, in this red wine which is blended to enjoy at all occasions and which we recommend you drink from a standard glass tumbler (un bicchiere) the way the Italians often do at their own tables. You don’t need to swirl this wine. Just look for the twinkle.
Zinfandel has a long history in California and for many years accounted for the highest acreage of planted wine grapes. While many regions of California continue to grow very good Zinfandel, there is nothing like the robust flavors found in foothill Zinfandel. You will like its’ deep color and rustic flavor.
