Clos LaChance winemaker Stephen Tebb has an adept hand with everything from Pinot Noir and Viognier to Zinfandel.
What You Need To Know
In 1987, Hewlett-Packard executive Bill Murphy and his wife, Brenda LaChance Murphy, planted a few rows of vines in their backyard, located west of San Jose in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Today their “hobby winery run amok” is one of the leading family-owned estates in California’s northern Central Coast, with more than 150 acres of vines in nearby San Martin and the Santa Cruz Mountains. In the dicey 2010 vintage—an unseasonably cool and wet one by California standards—Tebb managed to fashion this luscious, plummy Zinfandel. The cooler weather, and the vineyards’ location near the coast, keeps Zinfandel’s alcohol in check, resulting in a refreshingly juicy take on this fruity grape.
