Clendenen Family

This not just another label, it is a project of passion for winemaker/owner Jim Clendenen.  These are artisan, small lots of distinctive wines where commerce is not the driving force. These wines have the luxury to be in barrel as long as they need it (5 years for the Nebbiolo!). Wines that are nuanced, long lived, food-friendly, with firm acidities, and moderate alcohol. For older vintages, see menu.

Sort By

Dense and inky yet with grace. Lovely Bordeaux characteristics along with a classic dark berry character and medium, dusty tannins. Drinking very well now, but has the structure to easily age 5-10 years.

Those who enjoy a well aged Pinot will be thrilled with this wine. The fruit is from Jim’s Rancho La Cuna vineyard in Los Alamos, an area known for deep reds. This wine is supple on the mid-palate with firm acidity. It is a very limited release.
