Is it dark pink? Or, is it light red? This is the second vintage of Superbloom, our zero zero wine that defies categorization. You know that moment right after sunset, before the stars are out in full—what poets call the “violet hour”? That’s the moment to open this wine. Call it a nighttime rosé, if you’d like. Drink it with food and friends for a perfect summer apéro.

Our wild idea with this wine was to co-ferment red and white Rhône varieties from a single vineyard, then to keep it completely natural by adding nothing and taking nothing away in the cellar. Both the 2018 vintage and this new vintage contain about a third red and two thirds white grapes. We call this a “California Table Wine,” but don’t be fooled by the humble name. 

Superbloom is named after the wildflowers that erupt in the desert after a wetter-than-normal rainy season. They’re a sign that winter is over and warmer, happier days are ahead. We know that spring has not yet sprung in a lot of the country—but in the meantime, you can sip on Superbloom and dream of warm California nights.

At Las Jaras, our goal is to make delicious wine that has tons of energy and balance. We want them to be vibrant, delicate, and supple all at the same time while also being food friendly and easy for anyone to enjoy. Our wines are designed to reflect the unique terroir of the vineyards using minimal intervention so you can taste their natural, rhythmic expression. If you are not used to drinking wines made this way, the experience can be a revelation.

Our lighter wines can elevate your daily experiences. Bring the elegant bubbles of our Sparkling Wine to your best friends engagement party. Nestle the Rosé into your backpack for a trip to the park to watch an epic sunset. Pair the chilled Glou Glou with a margherita pizza to make takeout tastier. 

Our medium bodied reds pair with deep savory meals and create thought provoking moments. A holiday dinner includes a conversation about Carignan. The Cabernet Sauvignon is brought to your favorite restaurant to share a taste with your server. “Does this remind you of 70’s Napa?” And our Sweet Berry Wine demands explanation, inspires stories, and creates joy. For your Wine!

We are very excited to share our wines with you—there are more to come! 

Cheers, Joel & Eric

Superbloom is a complex, utterly unique wine that expresses the specialness of Love Ranch vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. The red grapes give this wine a spicy nose and plenty of texture, while the white grapes add beautiful watermelon and rhubarb notes, plus a clean, mineral finish.
