Red Wines


A drawing of the original Maxcy homestead, winery, and vineyards from 1882.

Father Serra Junipero planted the first red wine grapes in California in 1779.

Less than a century later in 1850,  Col. A.E. Maxcy planted vines on what is now part of Rancho Guejito and became one of the leading producers of wine in Southern California by the turn of the century. Though the original grapes are gone, our red wines pay hommage to the incredible history of California and the ranch.

With this vintage, we took this varietal up a notch. This is an extremely complex wine on the lighter-bodied side. Black and red cherries are married with a ripe strawberry and a touch of blood orange zest on the nose, which becomes more prevalent on the palate. This varietal is showing some cinnamon and birch-like spice as well as a pleasant vanilla undertone. The wine has a delectable creamy texture and weight despite being light in color.

Terret Noir, a varietal many are unfamiliar with but are sure to love, is in great form in 2019. Bright red in color, with fruits of red currant, poached strawberries, and a touch of peach pit. A brambly, woody character develops in the glass, along with a fresh pink and red rose-like floral aroma. The wine finishes with a cured meat and herbaceous thyme flavor. This is another estate varietal that is gaining complexity as vine maturation continues.

There is a brilliant fresh nose on this beautiful Mourvèdre. Tart red raspberries, blood orange rind, red plums, and wild berries are joined by fresh pink and purple flowers, wisteria, and lavender blossoms. These are followed by a light touch of herbal earth tones. This 2019 vintage is showing quite well, the more our vines mature the more complex these wines are becoming.

Deeper and more brooding in expression than prior vintages. A beautiful, ruby color, with a complex nose of tart and baked red-fruits, red currant, raspberry, and black plum. Classic green herbaceous notes of bay leaf, oregano, and fennel seed meld with earthy wet clay. There is a touch of balsamic and florals that are reminiscent of red carnations and hibiscus petals. Slightly grippy tannins on the palate make this quite ageable or a perfect pairing with cheese and cured meat selections!

On the nose, this wine has fresh light red fruits, rhubarb, red cherry and pomegranate with a touch of red apple skin on the palate. Some white cherry blossom and red rooibos tea aromatics and flavors mingle as well.

SKU: 18-PINOT

Deep ruby in color with a touch of garnet on the rim. This wine shows its fruit forwardness with rainier cherry, dried red currants, and a touch of açai berry. It elegantly opens up with a secondary dried nature to the fruits. Provencal herbs, sweet tobacco, and a hint of vanilla linger with a light yet soft mouthfeel.

Bright and crisp, just-ripened, red raspberries, fresh rhubarb, with macerated cranberry and strawberry fruit tones. Pink lilies and carnations define the floral nose with notes of a sage and an underbrush-like herbal quality. Pink peppercorn and a kiss of oak add a nutmeg flavor, lengthening the finish. This fruit came from a higher elevation on the ranch which contributes to the prevailing freshness that shines throughout.

A gorgeous color- ruby with light purple hues and great clarity. This oak-free Merlot is stunning with a combination of fruit conditions. Tart blueberries, crushed fresh strawberry, and black cherries on the nose with an herbal tobacco leaf aroma and roasted red chili pepper in the background. Upon tasting, red and blue fruits come through, more about ripe raspberry with a forward lavender/purple violet floral component that finishes long. With air, the complexities and more dusty earth notes come through as the wines tension seems to unravel in layers.
