Field Recordings.

Field Recordings. Field Recordings is 33-year old winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.

Off of Ramada Drive, Just south of Hwy 46 West and Hwy 101 exit.

  Chumeia Vineyards Barbera Partridge-Leigh Vineyards 2006
We are very pleased with the Barbera that we receive from the Partridge-Leigh Vineyard. Taming the acid on this varietal can be a challenge. For this reason, many winemakers use the Barbera grape as a blender. Due to the warmer summer in 2006, we were able to round off the acids without losing the kicky zing that many of our fans have come to love over the years. The wine offers a generous dose of blueberry and gooseberry. Both of which are rested on a foundation of soft tannins and well structured acids that make the 2006 one of the best Barbera’s that we have made. This lively Barbera will pair heartily with roasted or grilled game meats,lamb or beef, or a rustic roasted red pepper pasta with fresh mozzarella.
  Chumeia Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California
This cab is loaded with fruit (strawberries, plum, cherry and blackberry) all of which is laced together with aromas of anise, vanilla, cedar and a myriad of spices. The tannins are layered into the palate and balanced by the focused tannins that all end with a great finish of all the above. Bronze Medal- 2008 San Francisco Wine Competition
  Chumeia Vineyards Chardonnay California 2007
This vintage tastes like fresh pineapple, guava...very tropical with some lemon peel and pear. It is a tropical fruit bomb! More buttery in style.
  Chumeia Vineyards Merlot California 2006
This Merlot is one of the boldest Merlots that we have done. A new oak treatment called "flashing" really shows in this wine. Healthy portions of strawberries and cherries followed by a touch of spice, vanilla and pipe tobacco. Solid tannins and balanced acids bring the wine all together on the palate and yields to a great finish. Enjoy!
  Chumeia Vineyards Odyssean 2005
The Odyssean is always a blend of at least three different wine varietals. In years past, we have used varietals like Sangiovese, Barbera, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. For the 2005 Vintage of the Odyssean, we have selected three very distinct varietals that offer a stellar blend. In selecting the wines for the Odyssean, a base wine is chosen and then through barrel selection and long hours of tasting and re-tasting, the blend is crafted to reach a balance of fruit flavors, tannic structure and acids. The 2005 Odyssean is a blend of Dante Dusi Zinfandel at 67%, Partridge-Leigh Barbera at 17% and Chumeia Estate Cabernet Sauvignon at 16%. All three of these wines on their own are outstanding wines, however, when blended together, they make something special--The Odyssean! Food Pairing Suggestion Work with the higher acidity and lower tannins and serve it with an autumn inspired hearty Chicken Cassoulet, rustic bread and a Caesar salad.
  Chumeia Vineyards Silver Nectar,
Fresh apricot, cantaloupe, honeydew melon and vanilla--this wine is light and fruity with a slightly sweet finish that leaves your mouth watering for the next sip! A perfect combination of Torrontes (a white floral varietal similar to Muscat) and Chenin Blanc. This one is flying out of our tasting room and is sure to sell out quickly.
  Chumeia Vineyards Zinfandel California
Our first release of our new California Zinfandel has already turned into a tasting room favorite since its release in May 2008. This Zin is the bruiser of the bunch. Big over ripe fruits, and big alcohol to balance it all off. This style of Zin is not often seen in this price point. This Zin was inspired by our black label Dante Dusi Zinfandel, which in the past several years has taken on a life of its own. We look for this one to be a great starting point for the others to follow. The 2006 Zin offers huge aromas of jammy jammy jam, laced together with notes of vanilla and spice on the palate and finishes with soft tannins and balanced acids.
