  • 2012 Pinot Noir - Lillie
    Our latest, and LAST, estate Pinot from my family vineyard near Lompoc. Aged in 10% new oak for 14 months, it has aromas of black and white pepper, dried cranberry, smoky oak, and plum, with a hint of violet. This is followed by flavors of plum, Craisins and pepper and finishes with aromas of cinnamon, cherry, plum, tobacco, and white pepper. Great by itself or pair with mushrooms stuffed with bacon and roasted jalapeno and cream cheese.
  • 2014 Pinot Noir "Oz"
    Aromas of Flint/minerals, cranberry, sharp cherry. Hints of cinnamon, and cedar. followed by flavors of plum, Craisins and cayenne pepper and finishes with aromas of cinnamon, cumin and an interesting dustiness and crisp acidity. Great by itself or pair with spicy BBQ’d lamb kabobs or a wild mushroom risotto.
  • 2010 Poodle Pop
    Aromas of smoky black cherry, vanilla, and strawberry. Flavors of cherry and boysenberry syrup, fig confit with a nice tart finish. A nice round, full mouthfeel. A really yummy, jammy wine. 65 months in neutral oak.

Try it with an heirloom tomato drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
