    Michael & Margene Moone
  • 2013 Cabernet Franc
    Margene Signature Series Tasting Notes: This medium top full bodied Bordeaux blend shows ripe blueberry and plum flavors with a hint of sweet smoke and exceptionally smooth tannins for a Cabernet Franc dominated wine. Consider opening in late 2016 and will drink well through 2022
  • 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
    Tasting Notes: Blackcurrant, cherry, and sweet wood and the nose with a mid-length finish. Classic Cabernet based blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Cabernet Franc. The 2012 Cab will lay down for at least a 10 years.
  • 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
    Classic aromas of Cabernet fruit with a hint of sweet oak. A layered complexity even in its youth. Supple structure with well defined acidity that will integrate nicely as the wine ages. Drink beginning in late 2014 through to its peak in 2020
  • 2013 Cask 4
    Made from the best four barrels of the vintage, this bottling shows an intriguing nose of soy and hoisin sauce, fresh-pressed blackberries, star anise and sandalwood. A similarly Asian-spiced character shows on the delicious palate, where nutmeg and clove meet with more blackberry fruit, black pepper, crushed herbs and a touch of caramel.
  • 2011 El Pistolero Cabernt Sauvignon
    80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc & 10% Merlot. Aged in French and American oak for 48 months.
  • 2015 El Pistolero Chardonnay
    "Cold Steel" Cold fermented in stainless steel at 60 degrees and stored in stainless steel 85 gallon barrels for 5 months. Awarded a Double Gold Medal at the International Chardonnay Symposium in June 2016.
  • 2012 El Pistolero Meritage/Bagnum
    Well integrated blackfruit with a hint of sweet oak. The Merlot adds a velvety smooth mid palette that leads to an extended finish.Enjoy this "Bagnum" (Magnum in a pouch for up to 30 days after first pour). The vacuum sealed bag keeps the wine fresh for an extended period of time.
  • 2014 El Pistolero Pinot Noir
    "Bin 12" The Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir grapes in this wine are from Dijon 115 and Pommard 4 clones. Inviting aromas of strawberry & cinnamon in this richly layered Pinot. Exceptional balance through to a supple finish. Cooperage was new French Oak and neutral French Oak barrels 750 ml Mooney Family quality at El Pistolero price!
  • NV Mooney Family Blanc De Noir
    Mooney Family Blanc de Noir-Sparkling Pinot Noir
  • 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
    Tasting Notes: Blackcurrant, blueberry, cassis and cedar notes are present in this full-bodied, classic Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. The finish lingers for 45 - 60 seconds. Those who cellar this wine will be rewarded. Should drink well through 2026.
  • 2012 Roxo Port Ruby/Magnum
  • 2006 RoxoPort 10 Year Tawny
    Made in the Método Português, this interpretation of a traditional port style aged tawny was in French Oak barrels for 10 years. Exceptional!
