WOW: A Place Called Kokomo...

WOW: Wine of the Week

A Place Called Kokomo...
Line 39 Wines
No, contrary to popular belief, this winery name was NOT inspired by The Beach Boys song.  This winery derives its name from the founder's hometown of Kokomo, Indiana!

"Perched on 120 acres of prime Dry Creek Valley east benchland vineyards known as Timber Crest Farms, Kokomo Winery concentrates on small production, single-vineyard wines. Started in 2004 with the production of a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Kokomo Winery focuses their terroir-driven philosophy on Sonoma County and its distinct appellations. Owner and Winemaker Erik Miller named the winery after his hometown of Kokomo, IN, and decided on a Coastal Cypress Tree for the logo to signify his move out west. Joined by his best friend from Purdue, Josh Bartels, as Kokomo's assistant winemaker, Erik partnered with legendary grower Randy Peters, who has nearly forty years of wine grape growing experience under his belt. The three have formed quite the successful alliance, as Kokomo Winery has now joined the elite boutique wineries of Sonoma County, gaining more 90+ ratings and Gold Medals with each anticipated release." - Winery Notes

Taste true inspiration from the Miller family and enjoy these two new wines to for around $20 per bottle.

Kokomo Chardonnay 2012 Tasting Notes

"This Chardonnay has pineapple, green apple, and honeysuckle aromas.  The bright and fruit-forward mouth feel is followed by apple pie and vanilla with a clean finish." - Winery Notes

Kokomo Zinfandel 2012 Tasting Notes

"Our 2012 Zinfandel gives a ravishing display of ruby red color that leads into a pleasant bouquet of blackberry fruit, coco, and holiday spice.  While sipping, your palate will be delighted by blackberries and plum, refineds tannins, a full body and a finish that lingers." - Winery Notes
