Day Wines

Ehren Jordan Wine Cellars is a new opportunity for Ehren to engage with grape varieties presently unexplored by his work under the Failla label.

Ehren's first release, DAY, allows him to revisit a passion for Zinfandel last explored – to critical acclaim – as the winemaker of Turley. Alongside his elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Ehren's DAY Zinfandel is a celebration of restraint and balance, time and place. And like Failla, DAY is largely committed to working with various vineyard-partners in Sonoma County – a region he did not frequent as winemaker at Turley. In this way, DAY is the coalescence of decades of experience and the study of once-disparate passions: Zinfandel and Sonoma

Further, with the purchase of a St. Helena apple orchard in 2004, Ehren Jordan set aside for himself a canvas for an estate Zinfandel vineyard. In 2011, these iron-rich volcanic soils saw their first plantings of Zinfandel, and today the DAY estate vineyard boasts 1,300 dry-farmed, organic vines on 4 acres.

DAY is a return to Ehren's roots – and California's, too, as he explores the history of this iconic variety and how it flourishes today.

"This wine is a one off - I won’t be getting the fruit again from this site (perhaps I’ll find Aligote from another vineyard) but I had to seize the opportunity to work with such a rare grape for Oregon. The vineyard is a currently unnamed site in Ribbon Ridge AVA, grown organically. I pressed the

Day Wines 'Crowley Station' Pinot Noir 2014
Wine and Sprits Magazine 94 "A wine that seems to walk a line between earthy savor and fruit, between tension and ripeness, this reaches a comfortable middle ground of understated elegance. With its dark cherry aromas influenced by stem inclusion, it feels opulent, only to get reined in by a savory
