About the Wine: There is not much Roussanne, one of the Rhone Valley’s premier white grapes, grown in California. This wine is sourced from grower Larry Mettler’s vineyard in Lodi. Whole cluster pressed then fermented in neutral oak with native yeast. It was bottled after relatively short barrel aging (6 months), which we believe maintains purity of fruit.
Tasting Notes: The wine serves up a wonderful mineral core with bright acidity for good structure. Hints of stone fruit, citrus and jasmine give it a freshness that lingers long on the palate.
Mensch wines are made with the new flash-détente technique that allows us to flash-heat our grapes straight out of the vineyard. We never heat the wine. Both white and red wines are barrel fermented with native yeast.
Mensch Zinfandel is full-bodied and made in Lodi. It offers a spicy, zippy tasted of black cherry, licorice, chocolate and herbs.
This nicely combines 85% Merlot and 15% Zinfandel into a winning mix of sanguine currant, cranberry and black olive set against a backdrop of smoked meat and black pepper. Thick and lush on the palate, it aims to please and succeeds.

This Limited Production Sauvignon Blanc honors traditions both old and new, Enjoy Red C in the spirit of celebration. Daniel Rogov says “Covenant, Sauvignon Blanc, Red C, Dry Creek Valley, Heraldsberg, 2010: Light golden straw in color, medium-bodied, with fine balance between acidity and fruits. On the nose and palate generous citrus and tropical fruits, those matched nicely by fresh herbs and a hint of freshly mown grass. Mouth-filling and generous with a long, elegant finish. We found it simply delicious.”
