28% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 26% Mourvedre, 12% Cinsaut, 7% Carignane. The 2019 L. Preston Red is ready to drink out of the gate, with complex aromatics of mulberry, plum, licorice, pepper and fresh leather. The wine is sleek and alluring in the mouth, carried by Grenache notes of stewed ripe strawberries and finishing with sweet, resolved tannin.
Preston Farm and Winery is a family-operated, organic property in Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Valley. The winery is comprised of 125 acres nestled between a meandering salmon-spawning stream and a sleepy stretch of former wagon trail leading to town. Under 45 years of stewardship by the Preston family, the land has evolved from an emphasis on wine alone to diversified crops including vineyards, vegetables, fruit and olive trees, grain, and pastured livestock.
The estate winery features a tasting room, farm store, and bakery with a wood-fired oven. Estate-pressed olive oil, whole grain sourdough loaves, pickles, and produce from the farm are seasonally available for purchase along with the wines.
