This one drinks like a $40 Pinot, but at HALF the price!
Medium garnet color in the glass. The nose opens revealing aromas of cherry, spice, hints of cranberry and tobacco. A delicate mid palate with flavors of red cherry, pomegranate and cola, with subtle toasted french oak in the background. Well rounded, integrated and texturally appealing with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

This Zinfandel is quintessential Napa style... bursting with flavor now, yet structured with a long life ahead. In a line-up of top Napa Zinfandel. Always a stand out!
This rich Pinot offers black cherry, dark plum, and sweet tobacco, mingling with undertones of savory spice. A ripe fruit forward core with notes of earthiness and toasty oak and silky soft tannin.
Aromas of tropical fruit, pear, apricot, and lemon meringue. There's fresh apple, too, and a nice toasty nut oak component going here along with the creamy, long finish. Perfect year round.
Double Gold Medal
From the heart of the Napa Valley, well known as a premier climate for growing world class Zinfandel. Warm sunny days lead to well ripened grapes and this Zin's jammy side.
90 Points, Double Gold
Rich ruby in color and offers an enticing nose of red currant, cinnamon and blackberry. The palate is opulent, full-bodied, with cocoa-dusted dark chocolate truffle.
Straw in color, verging on gold with aromas of apple, lemon, butterscotch, and a hint of oak. The palate has green apple, but turns more exotic with pineapple, kiwi, and melon. Rich tropical chardonnay.
