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.

Syrah

Description coming soon!Violet and ruby in hue, fruit-forward, and medium-bodied. Fresh raspberries and grapefruit give way to ripe raisins and clove with a hint of licorice.

Pair with roasted root vegetables and meats seasoned with cumin and Asian 5-spice.

Red

Red fruits burst from the glass: fresh and preserved raspberries, strawberry-rhubarb pie, and a hint of fresh blueberries. The fruits are balanced by a deep earthiness with notes of freshly fallen leaves on a warm forest floor and cut green tobacco leaves. Toasty graham cracker comes from the grenache and the heavy, dark notes of molasses, tar and cocoa powder from the Syrah and Mourvèdre.

This wine will benefit from being served cool and decanted as it is a lighter-bodied GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre).

Sommelier’s Notes: The supple tannins, balanced alcohol, and refreshing acidity would be a delicious companion to summer fare like hearty vegetable and grain salads and grilled lighter meats.

Rouge

Bright garnet ruby fades out to a clear rim with medium concentration and no tear staining. Distinctly leafy nose with blackberry, raspberry and tart red cherry. Violets, lavender, dried rose petal, and lilac complement tar and button mushroom earth.

The flavors are Fruit forward, clear, and bright. While this is a full-bodied, complex, substantial wine, the backbone of acidity and minerality keep it lithe and pretty.

Sommelier’s Notes: Enjoy with grilled pork or lamb chops with olive oil and Herbs de Provence.

Red

Clear, bright ruby color of light concentration, Rancho Guejito Pinot Noir's intense aromatics greet the nose at the rim of the glass. Freshly picked raspberry, pomegranate and cranberry compose a mouthwatering red fruit salad. Freshly cut parsley and thyme mingle with lavender potpourri and a hint of dusty earth. Sandalwood and a wisp of smokiness hint at the light oak treatment. Light bodied, delicate and ethereal. This is a lovely red wine suitable for white wine dishes that have subtle earthy bass notes.
