When you grow up surrounded by the family success stories of Caymus, Meiomi, and Mer Soleil like winemaker David Beitler, following in the family footsteps is easy.  Since 2005, Beitler has zoomed in on the most unique vineyards in Sonoma County to produce superb reds that are far greater than the sum of their parts. Skyhook, now in its second highly-anticipated release is no different with larger than life aromatics and a smooth mouthfeel that makes sharing a challenge. Trust us, you’ll want to stock up on this crowd-pleasing red!

About the wine

Rich and juicy, the Skyhook red is a party wine that gives Syrah the spotlight the black grape deserves. Spicy and savory, it’s balanced by juicy Grenache from the Bennet Valley AVA, which contributes lightness and fresh strawberry flavors to a red built for summer BBQs. Together, the combination of foggy, Pacific coast grapes (accented with hints of Napa Petit Verdot and Cabernet) make a refreshing summer red laden with black cherry, plum, wild berry jam and exotic spices. Beitler’s winemaking philosophy is all about sourcing special California grapes, and in his decade-long career he’s kept up with the small, remote, and subsequently most unique small vineyards of Sonoma. When blended with the precision of Beitler’s style, the Skyhook wines to express Sonoma in a cool, understated style that’s impossible to resist, and dangerously easy to drink.

Reviews

95 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"Vivid purple color, blackberry, anise, incense, mint and cedar. This wine opens nicely after 3-4 hours displaying luscious and refined fruit build and oozes with red raspberry, black plum, dark cocoa, black pepper, mint and pleasant earth. The tannins are effortlessly integrated well, leading to a fresh acidic finish. Pair with Braised Short Ribs, Wild Game, Venison Loin, Planked Rabbit and grilled sausages or burgers. A lovely wine with balanced sweetness to the savory ratio that will drink well for the next 3-7 years."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
