      Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon
      This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of Napa Valley's Oakville Region. Loaded with rich, ripe black cherry and plum flavors that are nicely balanced with hints of sweet toasted oak.

      Estancia Pinot Noir
      This Pinot Noir was crafted according to the Burgundian philosophy of handling the fruit as delicately as possible. Lusciously fruity with ripe cherries layered with sweet oak, dried flowers, leather, and spice.

      Robert Mondavi Carneros Chardonnay
      A classic Carneros Chardonnay: Fresh and focused, with apple, pear and citrus fruit character.

      Tintara Shiraz
      70-year-old vineyards provide the dense character and powerful dark fruit aromas found in this wine. The juicy palate with fine, integrated tannins leads to a silky finish.

      Simi Sauvignon Blanc
      Simi Sauvignon Blanc is everything a wine made from this grape should be: filled with lively acid and crisp, clean fruit flavors. A touch of Semillon is blended in to help develop richness on the palate.

      Columbia Winery Riesling
      This is one of Columbia Winery's most popular wines. It exhibits a fine rich aroma of apricot and honey, and crisp clean acidity with a fine lingering aftertaste.

      Please note that due to the popularity of this product, we reserve the right to substitute like wines and vintages.

      Critical Acclaim

      Central Coast

      View all wine

      The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

      Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.
