Winestyr Review

Two years in French oak barrels give this modern Bordelais style blend time to slowly mature, nurturing along perfectly ripe fruit largely sourced from the Rockpile in Sonoma County. What an incredible introduction to Toby Forman's efforts here, as this wine is built to cellar but ready to enjoy right away.

Tobias Vineyards

Tobias Vineyards is a true family winery, run by husband and wife team Toby Forman and Dawn Pauli-Forman, perched high above the fog line on Napa's Howell Mountain. With much of their lives spent apprenticing for their winemaking fathers, Ric Forman and Bill Pauli, Toby and Dawn set out to honor their families' heritages while crafting their own legacy. Toby and Dawn hosted Winestyr at their tasting room in the summer of 2019 and even with our first taste of wine, it was a no-brainer to work together. Three generations of industry knowledge, intense commitment to farming, and an eye towards accessible yet esteemed wines are the hallmarks of this estate.
