Black Oak

A century-old Oak tree stands guard over our vineyards. Three generations of the Manning Family have enjoyed the gift of this Oak tree. It was the inspiration for our brother Corey when creating the Black Oak label over 20 years ago. As an avid gardener, he also planted Black Oak trees at his home. This deciduous tree has deeply furrowed bark and on mature trees is nearly black. The thick, almost black bark is marked with deep furrows and irregularly broken ridges. The moss around the trunk appears black, which is where the tree gets its unique color in maturity. On October 9th, our brother Corey and many others lost their homes in the Sonoma County Fires. On the first visit to his house, he noticed that the Black Oak trees were still standing but were charred truly black from the fire. Each week he returned to the site and one day, he noticed that underneath the charred trees were signs of green buds and rebirth. It was then that he realized that the Black Oak tree uses fire as a source of oxygen and regenerates itself to a healthy state of its true self. Now, as the Black Oak trees start to rebirth themselves, they stand guard over his home as he waits to rebuild.

GIBBS

  • Composed primarily of Merlot harvested from Gargiulo Vineyards in Oakville and Cabernet Franc harvested from Carpenter Vineyards in Saint Helena, the Dusty Red is a deliciously bold, yet balanced wine.

The body is large and round, packed full of juicy blackberry, red plum, smoked bacon, chalky chocolate and layered spice. A medium-long finish is supported by ample tannins.  Each varietal was individually fermented and aged, then drawn from barrels and blended prior to bottling.
