Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Stunning aromatics of sweet cherry, ripe blueberry jam, and mint spice. The palate is meaty, but beautifully polished with raspberries, lavender, and vanilla. All while framed with smooth dusty tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"A brilliant Malbec, among the greatest ever produced in California. It's fat and opulent, shocking the palate with massive flavors of blackberries, blueberries, plums, cola, peppery spices and sweet, smoky sandalwood. Firm tannins hold everything in place, while the finish is thoroughly dry. Only 100 cases were produced, but it's worth a search. Editors' Choice"
