Winemaker Tasting Notes

This incredibly aromatic wine possesses an abundance of wild strawberry, cinnamon and red plums. The palate is lithe and juicy; displaying pretty raspberry, red plum leaning into prunes, tobacco, minerals and allspice with fine-grained tannins on the finish. A gentle decanting, or an hour breathing in a glass will unleash the magic.

Enjoy

Tendril wines are made “low and slow,” just like great food: we give them time to reach their full potential at the winery, aging 16 months minimum in barrel and 6-18 months more in bottle before release. This White Label should drink well through 2025. A gentle decanting, or an hour breathing in a glass will unleash the magic. Serve at 58-62F.

Our vision is “slow wine.” Everything we do is towards the best possible wines and it simply takes more time: continual interaction with vineyard, adaptive winemaking, separate small-lot fermentations, and longer aging. It is a process rather than a production, and not always successful.

We offer three different options for our wine club family, named for three of our wines: Extrovert, TightRope and C~Note.

Tendril Wine Cellars offers intimate tasting experiences by appointment only. Our seated tastings are always led by one of our winemakers— they are an in-depth experience for all your senses tasting at minimum six wines.

We’re happy to hear that you’re interested in purchasing our wine. We ship to adults in most U.S. states. Please select a wine to add it to your cart.

We love visitors, although it’s always best to book ahead as our winemaker-led tastings require some preparation.

Need a Tech Sheet, a photo, a label or all of the above? Well then, visit our Trade & Media resource to get everything you need.

We don’t like policies as much as the next person— a handshake is bond enough in many cases. But this makes our lawyer happy because it keeps us in business, focused on the business of making wine.

We are open for tastings!

We are delighted to welcome you for indoor tastings (limited seating) starting Feb 26, as well as tastings by our covered fire-pits on the patio.
