Sapphire Hill Vineyards
Sapphire Hill Vineyards has been a small, boutique winery ever since it first opened in 1989, and that is just the way that the staff likes it. Owner Lisa Mulcahy is content with keeping her production limited and manageable, which gives her team more freedom to experiment with new varietals and slightly different wine-making techniques, occasionally making as few as 24 cases of a particular wine just to see what it tastes like. Even when experimenting though, every wine is intended to be a pure representation of the character of Sonoma fruit. This is evident in the winery's current releases, such as a Russian River Valley Chardonnay that is aged in used oak for 16 months, lending a rounded toastiness to the grapes' crisp citrus notes, as well as in the Dry Creek Zinfandel—harvested from 70-year-old vines—which balances its dark berry flavors with a peppery streak and fine tannic backbone.
