Allora Vineyards was founded in 1999 by Terry and Nancy Klein. They are a very small production winery (about 1000 cases), so make sure to call ahead for an appointment. The name Allora is Italian and make sure to ask Terry about how they came up with the name; it is a great story. Terry is definitely a character and had us all laughing with his stories. The tasting room is in the cellar underneath their house where we tasted their wines and chatted with Terry and one of his daughters (Kelly). It is definitely a fun place to visit. We enjoyed ourselves, the wines and the conversations.

2006 Lusso ($100)Rating: B-C

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from estate fruit, this is the reserve Cab. A nice wine but I found it hard to justify the price based on the tasting
2006 Petite Sirah ($65)Rating: B-C
Apr 18th, 2010
The Petite Sirah is grown exclusively on the estate, with about 300 cases. It is very dark red in color with a lot of intense fruit. We got a taste of pepper.

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cab Franc. This is Allora's flagship wine and a very tasty wine. Big tannins, long finish. I would like to come back to this to see how it ages
2006 Cielo ($40)Rating: B
Apr 18th, 2010
About 250 cases of this blend, with 83% Sangiovese, 9% Petite Sirah, 7% Cab Sauvignon, 1% Cab Franc. It is a light wine, a nice "everyday drinker"
2008 Sussurro ($75)Rating: B

Late harvest Petite Sirah. Was not mad about it.
