We use traditional methods to craft limited-production Pinot Noir and Syrah from the Sonoma Coast and Santa Cruz Mountain appellations. Our winemaker and proprietor, Scott Sisemore, brings his drive, experience, and deep knowledge of red wine production to shape the wines from grape harvest to bottling.

Here's a cool blog post profiling Waxwing and our 2010 Syrah. Check out the July 11 post here: solosyrah.wordpress.com
And a great review of our 2010 Syrah from the Wine Enthusiast (July, 2012 Issue): The aromas of black pepper and grilled meat immediately pinpoint this as a cool-climate Syrah, and quite a good one. It's dry, rich and smoothly tannic, with blackberry, blueberry, bacon and smoky cedar flavors. While it's easy to drink now, this should hold over the next six years. -S.H. (90 points)
Waxwing's 2011 Pinot Noir is now on the wine list at Piacere in San Carlos! Piacere is our favorite restaurant on Laurel Street's flourishing dining scene and a great match for Waxwing.
The PinotReport critiqued our 2010 Pinot Noir, Spring Hill Vineyard, Sonoma Coast: Medium ruby color; ripe cherry aromas with herbs and rhubarb notes; rich, ripe stewed cherry flavors with earthy and herbal notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Silky, rich Pinot with interesting herbal notes. -G.W. (92 points and "Smart Buy"). We are out of this wine at the winery but you can still find it at Willows Market in Menlo Park and St. Michael's Alley in Palo Alto.
