Let’s Go Shopping

2012 Pinot Noir

2012 Pinot Noir

Santa Barbara County, CA

Our Pinot Noir is blessed with bright ripe berry flavors and hints of floral and spice. This wine is a sipper and pairs well with delicate poached fish through heavy braised meats making it a truly versatile wine. From the moment it hits your lips, this wine is a winner in our book.  The acids develop slowly leaving your palate craving more and your mouth filled with happiness as you enjoy a long smooth complex velvety finish.

I Am Waiting For You

 

2013 Petit Verdot

2013 Petit Verdot

Typically used in Bordeaux blends, Petit Verdot stiffens the mid palate with very unique and intense flavors yet brings an inviting aroma of violets and roses. We love it so much we bottled it as a single varietal. This full bodied deep dark red wine shows bountiful flavor with elegant style highlighting dark fruits with a cocoa finish.  It pairs well with smoked, charred grilled meats and roasted vegetables.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet Sauvignon is fresh and approachable with a pleasant balance of tannins and acid allowing it to pair with casual every day dishes such as BBQ chicken, a juicy burger or a slice of pizza. This “go to” wine is lightly oaked with floral yet spicy characteristics showing hints of red fruits and berries.

Our Cabernet Sauvignon from Lodi California is lightly oaked with floral yet spicy characteristics.  It is a nice balance of tannins and acids.  It’s a great “go to” wine!  Lay it down for a year or so and watch it mellow even more!

Take Me Home

2013 Chardonnay

2013 Chardonnay

Our 2013 Chardonnay is aged in Stainless steel so it is crisp, light and refreshing for a summer afternoon picnic. It brings back memories of warm summer days being enjoyed with family and friends. This highly aromatic wine fills the palate with the essence of ripe peaches, grapefruits and apricots. When served slightly chilled and paired with good friends and a picnic lunch, it will definitely leave a lasting impression.

 You Want Me

2013 Symphony

2013 Symphony

This hybrid varietal is a graft of a Muscat and a Grenche.  It is a little dry and fruity with a kiss of sweetness. As our dear friend would say  “It s a great 10:00 in the morning wine” sipping it poolside!   Enjoy.
