Q. When should I drink my Eighty Four wines?

A. Our Petite Sirah has spent four years in barrel and another year in bottle prior to release. It’s a wine of prodigious richness and depth and can be enjoyed now, 20 years from now, or at any point in between. Over time the primary fruit will become interlaced with the delicacy and elegance of age. Drink now – 20 years.

We tend to think of Malbec as somewhere between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in terms of boldness, mouthfeel and overall stuffing. For our first outing we wanted to explore its aromas and flavors on the newer, younger side liking the red and black fruit mixture and feeling as though less time in oak than the Petite Sirah was the way to go. Like the Petite Sirah though, we are finding the wine delicious and compelling now but believe that time will do beautiful things to this bottle. Drink now – 15 years.

Our Albarino spends just four months in stainless steel and is all about refreshing, juicy, sunny deliciousness. It is released ready to enjoy right away. Drink now – 2 years
