Whites


2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Glass – $7 | Bottle – $23

Refreshing and light yet crisp with tones of green apple and lemongrass. This one is perfect for a warm day and pairs beautifully with sushi, ceviche and pasta with pesto sauce.

A Stolen Kiss

Glass – $7 | Bottle – $22

Sauvignon Blanc with a kiss of Chardonnay, A Stolen Kiss is light, smooth and refreshing with hints of green melon, pineapple and grapefruit. This is a perfect wine to sip in the shade, by the pool, or with your favorite summer fruits.

2014 Muscat Canelli

Glass – $7 | Bottle – $21

An experiment to discover the hidden layers of this grape, our dry Muscat Canelli is crisp and natural with floral notes of honeysuckle and fresh grapefruit. Your nose may tell you to expect a sweet wine, but your taste buds will disagree as you experience the full qualities and nuances of Muscat Canelli freed from the typical sweetness associated with the varietal.


Reds


2014 Merlot

Our medium bodied Merlot features notes of black cherry, cranberry and light oak. This is a perfect wine to enjoy alongside your turkey dinner with all the fixings.

2014 Estate Syrah

With hints of strawberries, plum and light pepper, this medium bodied Syrah made with grapes from our lower vineyards has a nice lingering finish. Our favorite to pair with barbecue pulled pork.

2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Notes of black current, pepper, tart and dark cherry accompany this delightfully smooth Cabernet from our upper vineyards with lingering hints of violet and vanilla on the nose. We like to pair this with a nice tri-tip and a rich dark chocolate.

2013 Zinfandel

Glass – $10 | Bottle – $35

Rich tones of blackberry, black cherry and fig with hints of black cardamom and vanilla. This is a favorite with chargrilled red meats and roasted veggies like red pepper, tomato, onion and squash.

Midnight Kiss

Glass – $10 | Bottle – $35

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.

2014 Sun Kissed

Glass – $8 | Bottle – $30

A delicious blend of Sangiovese and Tempranillo, Sun Kissed has notes of tart cherry, tobacco and fire roasted tomato with hints of clove. This one will pair well with your glass, a rich pasta dish or savory pork chop.

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.
