Iridesse is a rather unique wine company in that we focus on wines made from grapes that are not traditionally the best selling varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. In fact, we often select the vineyard before deciding on what kind of wine to make. We have connected with some amazing winegrowers. We respect the winegrower’s efforts in cultivating extraordinary vines as the greater part of what turns out when you pour a glass. Patrick views his winemaking often like midwifery – waiting and letting nature run its course while helping make sure the end result is as pure and beautiful as intended. – Description from Nerevar

  • Iridesse Wines Anam Cara 2001


    Super Tuscan + zin basically, by which i mean sangiovese and cabernet. This wine was aged for 5 years in neutral oak and has a thick earthy leathery nose. Lighter fruits in the mouth, surprisingly so. Things like blueberries alongside the more expected spice and leather. Its a high acid wine so food friendly. Crisp finish for a red. Read More

  • Iridesse Albariño Lodi Sueño Vineyard 2005


    Opens with bright citrus fruits, a very crisp and clean wine on the attack. There's a touch of some unique interesting indeterminate smell on the nose (the wine was aged in stell, but kept on its lees for 1 year, which may have caused this). This unusual note was barely perceptible and not unpleasant. As the wine moves to the back of the palate ... Read More

  • Iridesse Wines Anam Cara 2001


    I love this red for many reasons. One is the complex taste. It has a lot to offer from the nose to the finish. Another thing I love about this wine which makes me purchase it more often than other comparable reds is the story. This wine is called anam cara or 'soul mate'. I love the story of it being the first wine the wine makers made toget... Read More

  • Iridesse Wines Anam Cara 2001


    This is a great red blend that requires a little time out of the bottle to become even better! I enjoyed it without any food on a hot summer day - and in big mouthfuls. This is a wiwne that loves to be gulped rather than sipped. When I opened this deep red, almost purple wine, my nose got a rush of cherry bark and sweet young strawberry. There ... Read More
