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

A deep, layered red with aromas and flavors of plums, dried roses and earth. Five years barrel age brought all the compents together harmoniously. Balance between the richness, the bright acidity, and moderated tannins, make this wine a versatile food wine. Enjoy with grilled salmon, roast pork, or mushroom risotto.

This is our “reserve” Nebbiolo. The wine, though aged in barrel for five years, has fresh floral notes and shows wild strawberry and plum aromatics. The mouth filling texture accompanies dried cherry flavors which transition into a clean bright finish with good acid balance.

Pinot Noir. Single Clone #115.Located next to Los Alamos Vineyard, Rancho La Cuna is an bucolic oasis of olive trees, heritage gardens and a five acre vineyard planted to Pinot Noir, Viognier, and Syrah that Jim Clendenen owns. Production is low and the wines produced seldom reach the shelves before they are gone. This is a beautiful, well stated Pinot of elegance and balance.
