Winemaker Notes

“Our blend this year is mostly composed of about 70% Syrah, 25% Grenache and the remaining 5% of Zinfandel. You’ll find that this wine is a great complement to food because of its acidity. Rich with berry notes, nice viscosity, hintsof cedar and spice; this mouthwatering wine won’t disappoint. Unfiltered” –Winemaker Jon Phillips

Aged 13 months in neutral French oak

Winemaker: Jon Phillips

About the Winemaker

Jon Phillips’ says that his passion for wine is likely in his blood, as he grandparents owned California vineyards in the early 1900’s. His love of wine grew through his time working at a tasting room, teaching wine appreciation classes and taking courses through UC Davis Extension in Enology and Viticulture. Making wine in his garage for friends and family since 1999, Jon followed his dream, purchased 6 acres in the Russian River Valley and launched Inspiration Vineyards in 2002. Jon’s small batch wines have earned many accolades, and he also offers winemaking services in the region.
About the Winery
Inspiration Vineyards

Jon Phillips’ passion for wine, however, dates back much further to his grandparents who made wine in the early 1900’s. For years, Jon was determined to break into the wine business by working weekends in tasting rooms, teaching wine classes and ultimately enrolling in a class at UC Davis in Enology and Viticulture.
