    "The way to my heart is through dry Riesling and Gewurtz, and this one certainly turns all my wheels........These are extremely limited-production wines which sell out, and this is easily one of the best dry Rieslings I have tasted from California recently. I would handily put this in a line-up of the top 5 or so in the state. It just pushes ALL the buttons."

    Medium bodied with fierce acidity that is wonderfully and deliciously in balance. Bone dry, tense, and tightly wound. This 2017 Wiley Vineyard Riesling by Terragena Vineyards is a captivating and compelling aromatic white from Anderson Valley. This bottling, crafted using 100% Riesling sourced from the Wiley Vineyard in Anderson Valley, absolutely deserves as much attention as its fine European counterparts.

    Terragena 2017 Abbassi Vineyard Pinot Noir (Carneros)
    Wine Enthusiast gives this wine 91 points: “Lightly textured and defined in crisp red fruit, this is a high-toned, acid-driven red, with subtle oak and earthiness. A lasting tilt of baking spice seasons flavors of blueberry and black cherry, integrating well in the glass.”--VIRGINIE BOONE

    Terragena Vineyard sits quietly perched at the top of an idyllic hillside in Humboldt County. We've had the unbelievable pleasure of staying on this magnificent property for the first leg of our road trip and have nothing but praise for this vineyard and the wines from this remote corner of California.

    Wine Enthusiast gives this 2014 Wiley Vineyard Pinot Noir 92 points: “A classic light color and complex aromas like rhubarb, forest floor and raspberry precede lively red cherry, pomegranate and mushroom flavors on a lean and appetizing texture. This outstanding wine makes a great change of pace from the ponderous fruit-and-oak bombs.”

    If you like light and airy red wines, say from the Jura, then definitely seek this out. This wine constantly morphed in the glass calling me to question whether this is a rosé or a light red wine. This is atypical from any form of Italian Nebbiolo."

    Terragena 2016 Lost Coast's Dragon Vineyard Nebbiolo (Humboldt County)
    “With a color as pale as some rosés, this vibrant, enjoyable wine has equally light flavors of red cherries and raspberries on a tangy texture braced by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Hints of earth and cedar add some nice complexity.”-- JIM GORDON

    Here you see the incredibly light-colored #nebbiolo with a stunningly perfumed aroma of dried flowers and cherries. It was lighter in body than most Nebbiolo I’ve had, but with a delightful acidity and fresh fruit flavors. It was a pleasure to meet Chris, a very passionate and involved winemaker from the vineyard to the cellar, and to learn about this cooler climate region. I look forward to more from Terragena!

    Terragena | 2013 | Red Blend | California is known for the big, bold, and the fruity, yet we recently were introduced to a blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Franc that hailing from California took us back to old-world restraint with beautiful floral expression. The mouthfeel is bright, and intense, nicely structured, with a fresh and floral finish with a punch of acid and well integrated tannin. A refreshing example of restraint of California fruit here. Enjoy over the next 7-10 years. | 90 points

    Sparkling clear light yellow. Nice peaty funk comes out of the nose graciously, a little grass and curry-comb trailing along. Pure and vibrant, ridiculously good, acidity and near-tannin-like structure fight for dominance in the MILES-LONG finish slowly turning various shades of bitter and voluptuous and as it churns in the wind.

    2017 Dragon Vineyard Nebbiolo
    What can I say about this wine... first off we let it open up for an hour before enjoying. ... this wine is beautiful in every way, from its peculiar hazy dreamy tinted color to its soft, sweet and subtle front end on your taste buds. It tastes like what it would be like to trap a condensed deep fog in the fall time of the Pacific Northwest and bottle it into a glass.

    “...This 2017 Elk Prairie Vineyard Pinot Noir by Terragena Vineyards is a spectacularly authentic and terroir-driven red from one of Humboldt County's best known vineyards. Beautiful forest tones are present throughout the aromatic and lifted nose balanced by earth and persistent salinity.”

    A ridiculous golden garnet crams almond butter and prickly-pear jelly into your nose. In the mouth, a see-saw of bright acid and raspy fruit create more startling juxtapositions--especially against the shockingly light color. If you have an open mind to interesting varieties and want to break into exciting interpretations of delicate tongue-bombs that make you re-think literally EVERYTHING you have drank this week, fine some of this and report back.

    Terragena 2017 Abbassi Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir (Carneros)
    “From a single site, this is a saignée of wine that is stainless-steel fermented and retentive in high-toned acidity. Peach-skin and lemon-peel flavors highlight a dry austere style that doesn't overwhelm.” VIRGINIE BOONE

    Beguilingly expansive yet still restrained on the nose while coming across thoroughly soft, silky, and feminine on the palate; exhibiting outstanding typicity and expression of place presented with great transparency and unmanipulated authenticity. It is exceptionally complex and flavorful on both the nose and the palate while remaining quite subtle and delicate, stylishly showcasing Pinot Noir's more Burgundian side through the lens of incredible California terroir. Outstanding.

    Organic cranberry, bilberry, and pomegranate lead a procession of raw foraged fruit that feels simultaneously tart and juicy yet complex and ethereal. This 2016 Dragon Vineyard Nebbiolo by Terragena Vineyard is a crazy fun and highly intellectual take on one of Italy's most prestigious grapes.

    Terragena 2017 Wiley Vineyard Riesling (Anderson Valley)
    A chalky, mineral aroma leads to a very dry, crisp and tangy flavor that shows a lot of restraint and firm acidity. Fermented in neutral (used) barrels and steel tanks, the wine is practically steely and certainly palate-cleansing. JIM GORDON
