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.

Counoise, Mourdvèdre, Grenache, Syrah

Just ripe blackberry, blueberries, and tart cranberry on the nose and palate. This is a dry, brooding, complex wine with serious aging potential. Singed thyme and sage complement an earth driven wild nature to the wine. Nutmeg and cedary oak are present and well integrated into the long finish. The tannins are structured and soften well with a decant. This is a perfect marriage with a marbled cut of steak, pork, or lamb.

Pinot Noir

A beautiful crimson ruby color in the glass with a mixture of red and blue fruits on the nose. A sophisticated, brooding pinot with ripe red raspberry, black cherry, wild blueberry, and some tart cranberry followed by a hint of cola nut and smoke. There's an ashy volcanic mineral tone with hints of dusty earth. The finish is quite lengthy and full with perfectly ripe fruit balanced with oak.

Varietal
Counoise, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah

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.

Varietal
Grenache

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.

Sangiovese

This estate-grown wine is a terrific example of a classic varietal showcased in our vineyards. Stewed red and black cherries, strawberry, and red licorice are present with a hint of roasted tomato and soy like complexity. An herbal, dried thyme and bay leaf aroma drives the palate well. This features light and bright pink and red peony florals that are completely in balance with the fruit and herbaceous qualities.

Varietal
Mourvèdre, Grenache

Mourvèdre dominant with remnants of Grenache. A wine that transcends from the new world to the old. Tart and dried red fruits, such as red currant, deep raspberry, and a touch of peach pit on the nose and palate. Rosewater and red carnations are followed by a cured prosciutto presence. An earthy note, similar to pipe tobacco and fall leaves, lingers on the palate. This is an absolute gem to drink now or age.

Merlot

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.
