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."

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."

"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."
