Reds


2014 Estate Syrah

Midnight Kiss

This rich, velvety blend of Petite Syrah and Petit Verdot is filled with notes of black cherry and blueberry, hints of violet on the nose and a whisper of dark chocolate.

2014 Petit Verdot

Glass – $10 | Bottle – $35

A winery favorite, this 100% varietal features floral notes of violet and lilac with hints of vanilla bean, Hungarian paprika and black pepper. This unique wine pairs well with lamb, bison and truffle cheese.

Glass – $10 | Bottle – $34

This robust blend of 50% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Sangiovese boasts dark notes of black cherry and black current with undertones of black pepper, rounded out with fine tannin for a smooth finish. A great wine to pair with upcoming holiday meals.

2014 Sangiovese

Glass – $9 | Bottle – $33

A traditional, rustic Sangiovese, this robust wine features notes of black pepper, tart cherry, dried rose petal and smoke, with subtle hints of cocoa as it opens up. Pair this one with a rich steak and black pepper.
