It's time to fuel up your soul and hit the road.
Harkening back to our roots, Soul Fuel is a dark, luscious Napa Valley blend that is a complete throwback to wines like All or Nothing. That's right, we're back to big Zinfandel blends and vintage motorcycles, and it feels so good.
You love Zinfandel. We love Zinfandel. Everybody loves Zinfandel. So we made it the core of this wine. The fruit we got for this blend comes from the legendary valley floor where it enjoyed hot days and cool nights during the growing season which created the intensely concentrated blueberry flavor in this wine. With every sip, we lament the demise of Zin in the NV. This shit used to be everywhere, but more and more, vineyards have replaced it with Cab. Money talks, but we digress.
Next up in the blend is some peppery Syrah we sourced from the Carneros region, plus some Petite Sirah from Calistoga for tannins, and then a dash of Tempranillo, Primitivo, and Grenache.
From a winemaking perspective, our winemaker Bertus will tell you this is all about extraction. Through it, we have brooding color, alluring aromas, and dark flavor. On the pallet, it's basically a blueberry milkshake with deep flavors of blueberry and raspberry intertwined with mocha, exotic spice, and white pepper. Perfectly integrated tannins and a satisfyingly long finish make this. This is the right stuff to fill you up.
So what is soul fuel? We believe that too often people find themselves burnt out, and that sucks. But we believe burnout comes not from doing too much, but from doing too little of what you love. You know, the shit that makes you smile. The shit that makes you present. The shit that makes you feel invigorated. That's soul fuel.
And for us, you can call us basic, but we fucking love vintage motorcycles. Yeah, yeah, thanks, captain obvious. We love them so much we built a winery about it. So we dug up one of our oldest unused photos from when we were the first opening of some dudes on their bikes, on a dirt flat. Nothing but speed and excitement ahead. Go fuel up.
