100% Trousseau

This light, fresh and quaffable wine is light in color, medium in body and nicely fruity-spicy in flavor. Raspberries and red cherries are accented by black pepper giving it a lively, refreshing character.  Jim Gordon

From the St. Amant site in Amador county- mountain red in the mountains. The nose shows a lifted and delicate tea, blood orange, dusty raspberry, mint, and a kiss of sandy earth. The palate is translucent with delicate notes of just there fruits and savory notes.

Mike Lucia is no newcomer to the Northern California wine scene, as the owner and producer of multiple wine brands including Rootdown, Cole Ranch, and Es Okay. His winemaking roots go all the way back to the early 90s, where as a teenager he began working in the cellar. Since then, he's been busy: studied in the Fresno State Enology program, made wine for Copain, Goldeneye, and consulted for brands with similar mentalities. In 2016, Mike "hit the gas pedal" on Rootdown, increasing both the quantity and varieties of wine he made, stopping once he reached 9 wines. His newest venture, Cole Ranch Vineyard & AVA is testing all of his knowledge, as he studies a unique terroir (the smallest AVA in the US) and pushes to find the best Alpine varietals that will thrive in the Cole Ranch soil and climate.
