Christine Havens’ 2014 Tasting Notes

2014 Seed Malbec Luscious steeped blackberries, marionberries, and dusky Italian plums lie well beneath lighter, more enigmatic aromas of violets, dust, and dark chocolate shavings.

Why I love Seed Wine

Christine Havens 2013 Malbec Tasting Notes

2013 Malbec Tasting Notes: Tight on opening, but far better on the second day which speaks to the age-ability of this wine. 2013 Seed has lots of power and potential.

Nick Ramkowsky 2013 Tasting Notes

Juicy and medium-bodied, it expands and intensifies in the mouth, gaining density and complexity as it is savored. The palate balances red […]

A quote from Cynthia Occelli

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression it must come pletely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. -Cynthia Occelli ‪#‎wine‬, ‪#‎luxury‬, ‪#‎teddyroosevelt‬, ‪#‎seedwine‬, ‪#‎Cynthiaoccelli‬

Go the extra mile

Running along the California coast just south of the Golden Gate bridge, I decided to go an extra mile. I came upon the sight of a pod of migrating whales just past the rocks at Sutro Point. With life as in winemaking, going the extra mile makes a world of difference. -Tom ‪#‎luxury‬ ‪#‎wine‬
