About this wine

The gorgeous Poppy Reserve overlooks the Smith Family Vineyard in the High Desert of Los Angeles. The vines struggle mightily in the heat and sandlike soils, producing complex wines with noticeable character. A constant breeze benefits the grapes and keeps disease pressure at bay. It's extremely hot during the day and cool at night, as the vineyard sits at over 3000 feet above sea level. This vineyard produces a wine showing notes of classic peppery red fruit, cinnamon, sweet tobacco, and red licorice. Wonderful acidity carries through the finish. 80% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 7% Merlot, and 3% Mourvèdre PLEASE NOTE WE CAN SHIP TO THE FOLLOWING STATES: CA and NY.

Ben and Katy Sposato

Winemaker / Proprietors

Acri Wine Company

Ben began his winemaking journey by making wine for family and friends. His family comes from the small town of Acri in Southern Italy and they have been making wine for generations. After his family moved to Long Island in the early 1900's, they continued making wine using local fruit. Ben grew up in the Finger Lakes region and has always been fascinated by winemaking and continued that passion as he moved to California, where he and his wife Katy started a winery in Los Angeles.
