Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

"Made in a stainless-steel, grassy style, this features a charming balance of peach and apricot buzzing in the background to maintain the fruit amidst the natural acidity. Delightfully drinkable, it finishes lean and crisp."

Lake County Sauvignon Blanc

"The dramatic tropical fruit (tangerine, mango) aroma of this wildly spicy wine is so enticing it's impossible not to like now. It will change over time to display its Lake County-ness, but for the next several months it will be just so exotic, it will be hard to put down."

Vin Rosé of Syrah

“The wine opens up with attractive aromas of ripe red fruits, watermelon, hibiscus tea and tangy citrus.  Elegant and mouth-filling, it’s a true thinker’s rose that becomes more complex as it opens up in the glass.”

-“Sommelier to the Stars” Christopher Sawyer 

2018 - 93 Points Christopher Sawyer


Dry Creek Valley Viognier 

"In this well-made white, half of the wine was stainless-steel fermented, the other half barrel-fermented. Honeyed aromas of almond and a viscous, medium-bodied texture build weight toward the finish, while never becoming cloying. Vanilla and apricot round out the profile, buoyed by crisp acidity."

Laguna de Santa Rosa Pinot Noir

Oehlman Pinot Noir

Mendocino Reserve Zinfandel

“ In the glass, the energetic combination of ripe raspberry, blackberry cobbler and dark plum with hints of black truffle, licorice, black pepper, cardamom, wild herbs, and toasted walnuts are balanced with a rich texture, lively acidity, and a long spicy finish that make every sip count.  An outstanding old vine selection that over-delivers for the price."

Cuccio Zinfandel 

"Brilliant, jammy blackfruit and spices with black pepper notes on the nose; a generous ripe fruit flavor and soft, though structured, mouthfeel, and a touch of vanilla bean on the finish."

Treborce Zinfandel

"Make no mistake, it is a mouthfilling stuff, and it is far too much wine for washing down simple pastas, but it is amazingly well-controlled for a wine of its size and style, and unrepentant fans of extravagant, no-holds-barred Zins will be particularly pleased."
