"If you like intense fruit, tannin, and acidity in a Zinfandel, 2015 was your kind of vintage. Our Zin is dark, full-bodied and it possesses the freshness and bright acidity that we feel is classic Dry Creek Zinfandel. This 2015 has a bit more tannin than normal and as such it should age nicely for 4 to 6 years. I love this wine as it is old school Dry Creek Valley, in the right way." – MU
91% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Sirah, 3% Barbera
This vintage of Segromigno is intense, showing dark cherry fruit with cocoa and tobacco undertones. It is layered and lively on the palate with bright acidity and solid tannin structure. The Sangiovese we used for this wine is superior to what we have used in the past years due to our attention to detail in the vineyard. The Montepulciano in the blend provides substantial depth and richness. It is a perfect wine for the dinner table and will develop nicely in bottle for another 4 or 5 years.
72% Sangiovese, 28% Montepulciano.

"Barbera epitomizes our winemaking quest here at Unti: To produce wines from noble Mediterranean grapes with expressive aromas, flavors, and solid natural acidity for balance. Barbera is by far the most heavily planted grape in Italy's Piemonte region because it performs well in a variety of sites. We first planted a small block of Barbera in 1998, and now have 6 acres under vine. We've learned that when farmed at moderate to low yields, Barbera can render compelling wines here in Dry Creek Valley. Our 2016 Barbera is quite dark with exotic fruit and snappy acidity. The wine was aged ion French oak barrels, 25% new for 12 months.

This Southern Rhône-style wine is 80% Grenache, 14% Syrah and 6% Mourvedre. The primary component of this blend comes from a 2.9 acre block, planted in 1998 to three selections of Grenache Noir, using budwood originally obtained from Tablas Creek and Alban Vineyards. These selections, originally from Châteauneuf-du-Pape give darker color and better structure than the majority of Grenache planted in California. Our Grenache and Mourvedre are planted at our creekside vineyard block. The Syrah in this blend comes from Northern Rhône clones 174 and 877 located beside the winery. Our vines are planted on low-vigor rootstock to 4’x 6’ spacing.

Vermentino is a classic Mediterranean white grape. In Italy, you'll find Vermentino in Liguria, Sardinia, and Tuscany, in France it is grown in Corsica and Provence. Our 2017 Vermentino was harvested early enough to retain bright acidity while in a fragrant, fruity, and expressive wine. We ferment our white wines in concrete and small stainless steel tanks to retain vineyard character.
