Tasting Notes

This wine is light to medium-bodied with notes of candied black cherry, bright splashes of cranberry, and a kiss of black pepper. It is dry and well-balanced with a long finish.


Upwell is a collaboration between Eric Clemons of importer/distributor Coeur Wine Company and some of California’s most talented young winemakers.  After years of noticing a lack of high-quality, affordably priced, and small production wines from California, Eric saw an opportunity to start a brand focusing on just that. The aim of Upwell is to over-deliver on value; one should be able to get a great bottle of wine from California for under $20.  By both working directly with growers as well as sourcing finished wines from producers, Upwell is able to create great everyday wines made in small amounts.

Grapes are sourced primarily from vineyards throughout the North Coast including Mendocino. They are fermented in stainless steel. Ageing happens primarily in stainless steel with a small amount seeing some oak influence.
