Experience a unique treat that is unequivocally Californian. Despite a relatively short viticultural history, a surprising number of facets to Californian wine have emerged from countless experiments over the years as winemakers attempted to see what would eventually stick. No, it's not Cab or Pinot, but appropriately, a mixed bag of "other" grapes that stake their own claims in the Californian wine landscape. Skinner's roots in El Dorado date back to 1861 and the origins of California winemaking as we know it. Their Native Red is easy drinking and totally unpretentious. Think vibrant cranberry, rose petal, earthy black tea and hints of palo santo.
