Hundred Knot Wines

Classic expressions of Napa and Sonoma– entirely within reach.

Our wise winemaker, Timothy Milos, once said, “Winemaking is the frame, the vineyard is the painting.” In other words, do only what is necessary in the winery to reveal the vineyard and vintage without compromise. Our Hundred Knot label is a homage to this sentiment, but it’s not just another line of overpriced California wines. Every bottle is under $60. We accomplish this through longstanding relationships with our incredible growers and the practiced hand of our acclaimed winemaker. If we’ve helped more people enjoy great Napa wines, then we’ve done our job.

Hundred Knot zinfandel

Zinfandel

Purchase

The red clay, sandy quartz and loamy soils of the Bacigalupi Vineyard in the Russian River Valley have set the stage for a sensational Zinfandel that channels old California style with some new school flair. Ripe cherries, cherry liqueur, crushed gravel, underbrush and black pepper lead into a spicy palate of peppered red berries, purple flowers, grilled plums and brambly fruits, framed by keen acidity and polished tannins.

Ripe apples, sweet melon, wet gravel, poached pears, vanilla cream and hints of brioche lead into a mid-palate full of marshmallow and lemon custard that is downright gulpable. Beautiful texture without being clawing or clumsy. The intersection of where old-school meets new.
