2008 Sparkling Rose ($20):
This very unique five-year sur-lee Grenache Rose boasts aromas of white peach, followed by flavors of strawberry shortcake, white grapes with a toasty macadamia nut finish.
2011 Sparkling Brut ($22):
This clean, crisp sparkling Brut was fashioned to be dry and fruit forward at the same time. Baked apple crisp and pear hit the palate first, followed by flavors of mango, papaya with a creamy toasty finish.
About the Artist:
Jonah Ward (b. August 31, 1984) creates works of art that, in their most literal form, are compellingly aesthetic; in their most metaphorical, they are a testament to our always relevant interaction with the natural world.
Jonah’s works are as much a product of his education as his backgroundborn on Foster Mountain in Willits, California, raised on a historic homestead at the end of red dirt roads, and educated in a one-room schoolhouse. Through his art he continues to cultivate his dialogue with nature. Jonah's original, and most prevalent series of work is composed of panels of wood stamped with what could be tar-like paint and printed with abstract designs and meanderings.
In his most recent series titled Textured Paintings, Jonah reinterprets the idea of what traditionally defines a painting or drawing. Rectangular pieces of Madrone tree bark, leaves and paper from bald faced hornet's nests are separately adhered to wood canvases in a patchwork pattern, resulting in painting-like forms containing a richness and depth only matched by other natural occurring colors, textures and materials. Jonah sees the components of these works as something that simply needs to be discovered, picked up off the ground, given a little time and energy, transformed and displayed them in a way people have never seen.
