2012 Marsanne

Carefully selected and handpicked, our third vintage of Marsanne is gently whole cluster pressed and light gold in color and exhibits a beautifully perfumed bouquet of ripe mango, honeydew melon, succulent peach and light spice notes. 100% stainless steel fermentation makes this mouth coating white, refreshing and clean with flavors of lush pear, lavender and a streak of minerality emerging from the glass. The wine’s beautifully balanced acidity is a testament to snatching the grapes from the vine at just the right moment and sets the framework for this voluptuous and nutty, dry white wine.

2010 Destiny

This dark and voluptuous Bordeaux blend is deep purple in color and highlighted by bold concentrated aromas of blackberry, rose petal, cassis, eucalyptus and crushed herbs. Firm, refined and expressive, the mouth presents a gorgeous array of lush black currant, brown spice, vanilla, toasted cedar and a hint of minerality, which mingles effortlessly on a beautifully balanced frame. This dark beauty unwinds with air, so decanting is advisable for those who don’t want to wait until 2015.

2011 Member’s Only

This Rhône blend is Châteauneuf-du-Pape in style, with lush, bright red fruits and pleasing traces of the estate vineyard’s characteristic dusty tannins. Exhibiting a deep crimson color with a stunning violet rim, this wine produces a spicy nose of black cherry, rhubarb, mocha, cedar and lavender. While Mourvedre contributes elegance, structure and lively acidity to the blend – producing flavors of raspberry, smoked almond, wild vine strawberry and hints of tobacco – the Grenache adds a beautiful peppery note. Syrah rounds out the blend with its dark fruit flavors, and adds steady tannins and color to this supple sipper.

2011 Mr. Big Petite Sirah

Year in, year out, Mr. Big lives up to its name with its huge flavors and bold structure. Dark inky purple in color, complex aromas of toffee, black berry jam, caramel, smoked meats and earth, jump from the glass. Savory and rich, distinct flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and brown sugar weave comfortably through the hints of cedar and spicy French Oak undertones. This audacious big bodied wine is a perfect balance of acid and fruit, all backed by chewy tannins, and an extremely long finish.
