Fleming Jenkins Vineyards & Winery

885 visitors

In 1999, we planted a small Chardonnay vineyard on our ridge top property in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, high above the town of Los Gatos. We loved it! That experience inspired us to go to the next level and launch our own winery. Today, we continue to farm and harvest our vineyard, and make our new wines in the historic Novitiate Winery close by in the Los Gatos hills, alongside Testarossa Vineyards.

2007 Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah
Black Ridge Vineyard

These grapes come from a carefully tended hillside vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains near Los Gatos. The wine was barrel aged in French oak for 15 months to provide additional ... morestructure and balance. This is an excellent example of what a coastal climate Syrah should be.
