The Pinot Noir grapes for our third vintage of Conway Pinot Noir are sourced from the acclaimed Santa Maria Valley Goodchild Vineyard. In keeping with previous vintages, this wine is fermented on the skins. Visually, the 2019 shows a beautiful garnet red color in the glass. The coloration is indicative of the rich red fruit flavors imparted by the skins of the grapes. Barrel aged for 8 months in French Oak, this wine is recommended to be enjoyed on its own, or with light fare.
Classic fruit aromas such as ripe cherry, strawberry and pomegranate. Silky smooth tannins, bright cherry fruit flavors, cranberry and plum notes, and subtle oak make the 2019 Conway Pinot Noir a new favorite among our Pinot Noir offerings. The special label signifies its quality, and it stands out as one of the best bottlings in our portfolio of wines.
The Pinot Noir grapes for this vintage of Deep Sea Pinot Noir are sourced from an acclaimed Los Alamos Vineyard site. Original cuttings for this vineyard were brought over from Europe 25 years ago. Unlike the rosé version of this delightful wine, the Pinot Noir for the “Diving Helmet” label is fermented on the skins to obtain maximum tannin and pigment (coloration). The ruby red color and good structure of this wine come from the time it spends macerating on the skins. Barrel aged for a short time in new French Oak (roughly 4 months), this wine is delicate enough to drink on it's own, but versatile for food pairing. Smells Like: Baking spices, crushed cherries and strawberry jam. Tastes Like: Fresh cherry, pomegranate and strawberry with a cranberry and quince jam finish. We recommend this wine for: Anyone who likes Pinot Noir, or who is looking for a fruity light red. Compare to the Conway Pinot as a lighter, more fruit-forward version of Pinot, with more fresh fruit notes, and opposed to the Conway which has more darker fruit, some savory notes, and more barrel aging.
Dolcetto vs. Petite Sirah! Locked in a battle of equals, both grapes form an exciting and highly complex wine layered with rich fruits and supported by spice, leather, and balanced tannins.
The 2018 CONWAY Cabernet Sauvignon is a much anticipated release, since it's been a few years since we produced a 100% Cabernet. Well worth the wait, the 2018 displays aromas of blackberry, blueberry and some floral notes. Firm tannins add structure and complexity to rich layers of powerful fruit.
Sip wine, save Dogs!! The 2018 vintage is 100% Malbec, a grape known for its inky color and dark berry notes with black cherry, pomegranate and a black pepper finish. The grapes are sourced from the Santa Ynez valley, chosen to specifically to make a wine that’s close to home, and close to our hearts. John Conway's beloved rescue dog and Tasting Room mainstay Ringo is the inspiration behind this project.
A fruit forward and full-bodied Red Blend named after our Winery Dog, Rolo the Chocolate Lab. Rolo, who quickly grew from a wee pup to a great, grinning, whale of a Lab is the inspiration for this wine. Gillian Conway got Rolo in 2007, the beginning of our winemaking adventures. He is turning 12 years old this year! Each year the blend is comprised of different grapes, but always we strive to make it fruit forward, with juicy dark berry flavors, big tannins, and notes of chocolate-of course! This year the blend is comprised of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy in the company of friends, canine or otherwise! Woof Woof!
