Fiftyrow - Smokescreen

Paul Johnson dreamed of making wine from an early age and in 2003, along with friend and legendary winemaker Gary Galleron, that dream became a reality.

Having owned a wine store, Paul has a different vision than other winemakers. He set out to make wines that are high quality and affordable to enjoy any day not just on special occasions.

Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

The Fiftyrow Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alice Vineyard is a great expression of Napa Valley’s famed Rutherford region. The typical ‘Rutherford Dust’ is instantly recognizable with its soft, velvety tannins, texture and cocoa-powder-like finish. Generous aromas and expansive flavors of blackberry, dark plum, black cherry, chocolate and tobacco leaf are in beautiful harmony with well integrated oak that adds another layer of complexity.

Pinot Noir

Our Pinot is a gorgeous wine that comes together in an elegant, silky Pinot Noir that over delivers for its modest price tag. It is lush and alluring, with layers of bright fruit, rose petal, spice and red fruits. This is a full-bodied and rich expression of Pinot Noir that is impeccably balance and has the structure and savory notes that the Anderson Valley is famous for. It is ready to drink, or can be cellared for 7 to 10 years.

The Chemist

Our Chemist is a unique blend of GSM plus Petite Sirah. It is a full- bodied wine that has an inky, vibrant purple/blue color and offers purity and focus in a rich, layered and balanced wine. Loads of dark berries, mocha, espresso, plum, graphite all open up effortlessly in the glass and leads to a long silky nish.

A beautiful golden-hay color is the first thing you see in the glass. Enticing aromas of Asian pear, ripe apricot and a creamy richness lead to a racy palate that has an oily texture with crisp apple, toasted vanilla bean and subtle floral blossom flavors. The mouth feel is rich and round with its beautifully balanced finish. Our Chardonnay hits its stride after 6–8 months in the bottle and will age for 5–7 years.
