Let's get down to brass tacks, shall we? At Brass Tacks, we believe the essence of California wine is the fruit. So our winemaking starts in the vineyard, where we cultivate the unique characteristics of each varietal and vineyard. The result is a wine that isn't over-manipulated, allowing the personality of the fruit to shine through.
brass tacks (noun) - the most fundamental considerations; essentials; realities (usually used in the phrase "get down to brass tacks").
A beautiful Riesling, perfect for a cocktail or with a wide range of fare. Bone dry and richly acidic, it shows true varietal flavors of citrus, honeysuckle, diesel or lighter fluid, minerals and gardenia flower. This is a wine that sommeliers should scoop up, but only 450 cases were produced. Editors’ Choice.
