“Pour a drop and live life to its fullest”.

Drop in...

Scroll to begin

The story begins on California's sandy beaches and snowy mountains

As a kid growing up in California, “Killer Drop” always had a special meaning of adrenaline filled days with friends spent in the ocean or on the mountain. Whether it was dropping into a wave from a massive swell or dropping into a bowl on a fresh powder day, Killer Drop defined our world of extreme excitement, fun and living life to the fullest.

The best inspiration comes from pulling late-night corks with friends

After many years spent in the wine business, Killer Drop was always in the back of my mind. One late night, while pulling numerous corks with friends, the vision for Killer Drop came to fruition as someone exclaimed,

“This is a Killer Drop of wine!”

I was immediately transported back to those adrenaline filled days and knew what had to be done…I set out with my good friend and winemaker, Kent Rasmussen, to create a “Killer Drop of Wine” for our friends and family.

Coming full circle and introducing Killer Drop to a new generation

Fast forward and years later our passions for making wine and chasing adventure have come full circle with the creation of Killer Drop. Our blend’s vibrant color and intense silk, black cherry, and chocolate notes will instantly remind you of life’s greatest rushes.

So pour a Killer Drop and always live to the fullest!

Tasting Notes

2019 brought moderate and cooler temperatures, providing a nice long growing season leading to a high quality crop. The 2019 release of Killer Drop brings together fruit from several distinct growing areas of Northern California: Napa Valley, Mendocino, Sonoma, Sierra Foothills, and Lodi. Each region contributes unique characteristics to the final blend, with it all coming together to create an expressive wine with multiple layers of complexity and balance.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Killer Drop leaps from the glass with aromas of chocolate-covered cherries and blueberry with hints of dried herbs, spice and new leather. Medium to full-bodied, Killer Drop has lovely purity, highlighting flavors of juicy red and black fruit. The wine has a beautiful velvety texture, with hints of spice that lead to a long vibrant finish.

“Outstanding wine from Napa valley, state-of-the-art blend. Opaque purple color, perfect balance between acidity, wood and fruit. My kind of American blend: dense, opulent, a pleasure for the senses. Grenache, Petite Syrah, Syrah and of course Zinfandel gather together in sweet harmony.”

“What do you do during Snowmagedon, enjoy great wine! Strong blackberry, light vanilla and oak. Hint of mint on the nose and very fruitful. Would be amazing with a great steak!”
