The 2010 is medium straw in color with aromas of Pineapple, Pear and Melon and a faint bouquet of Vanilla. Flavors of Pear, Apple and tropical fruits are abundant in this rich, full wine.

Pinot Grigio
Our 2010 is light straw in color with aromas of Grapefruit, Lemon Lime and Green Apple. The wine is crisp in the mouth and finishes clear with dominating citrus flavors.

Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon has a purple-red color with good depth and bright youthful hues. The aromas feature ripe blackberries, fresh boysenberries and plums. The wine’s bouquet delivers cocoa powder, hazelnuts with a hint of smoke. On the pallet, flavors of succulent juicy berries and creamy vanilla predominate and are joined by a waft of juniper.

Petite Sirah
The color of the 2010 Petite Sirah is of concentrated purple, with a youthful bright hue. The nose of the wine is full of ripe Blackberry, Boysenberry aromas, which are accompanied by Mocha and hints of brown sugar. The berry aromas of the nose are also evident in the flavor, when the rich, full bodied wine enters the mouth. Notes of milk chocolate and anise linger, long after swallowing.

The 2009 Zinfandel is dark purple in color, with bright hues. The nose is filled with pleasant fruit scents of Raspberry, Cherry and Boysenberry. The fruit promised on the nose is delivered on the palate. The wine is juicy and round. Hints of Hazelnut and caramelized sugar contributed by the oak aging, complete the finish.

Bright purple hues highlight the medium ruby color of the 2010  Merlot. Red Currant, and Raspberry are intertwined with hints of dark berry pie filling. Juicy and concentrated, the mix of fruit flavors are accompanied by the pleasant addition of Milk Chocolate, which has been contributed through oak aging.
