  • 2014 Babicora
    The 2014 Malbec is bright scarlet in color. Deeply concentrated and ebullient boysenberry on the nose. Candied red and black fruit on the palate with a touch of baking spice. Perky acidity plays well against the plush midpalate. The weighty mouthfeel makes this a versatile pairing, equally matched with tomato-based sauces or pork loin.
  • 2014 Barrel Select Red Cuvée The Point
    Rich stone fruit, layered with hints of toasted oak make for a dense bouquet. Supple and warming on the palate, the 2014 Point opens up with a Cabernet Sauvignon dominate nose while the finely textured midpalate shows the strength of Cabernet Franc. This wine shows regal texture with age-worthy tannic structure. In its youth, this structure is striking, yet the abundant lush and ripe fruit still dominates. The 2014 Point is a thoughtful and well-constructed wine that will continue to evolve over the next 10+ years.
  • 2013 Barrel Select Red Cuvée The Point
    The dominant Cabernet Sauvignon is evident throughout, from the creamy cassis notes on the nose to the elegantly structured mid-palate. Malbec brought levity to this wine in the form of brighter secondary aromas and well composed acidity. The exceptional length of this wine is a testament to the power of Petit Verdot. While this late ripening varietal may not be flamboyant it can add depth and texture elevating a blend to new heights. The 2013 Point is a thoughtful and well-constructed wine that will continue to open up and evolve over the next 10+ years.
  • 2015 Bunkhouse
    This Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity shows immediately through its saturated scarlet appearance and through its warm and inviting nose that offers up aromas of black current, graphite and loam. While this wine has a lovely well-rounded attack, the finely-grained tannic structure is the backbone which underpins all its other qualities. Refreshing acidity plays nicely against the tannins allowing for soft and harmonious flavors of just-ripened plum and oak-spiced vanilla. As the wine progressed through the mid-palate and to the finish, the lingering flavors recede slowly as the regal tannic structure becomes most evident.
  • 2014 Carpoforo
    Belying its bracing acidity, this wine presents itself with an intense scarlet color. The playful nose is flush with aromas of bright raspberry and creamy vanilla. There is strong progression from the aromatics to the palate; concentrated raspberry flavors are elevated by subtle notes of toasted oak. While the flavors are lush and juicy, the wine has an agreeable weight, allowing for versatility in food pairing.
  • 2015 Glacier Ridge
    The impeccably clean and steely nose presents a streak of limestone-inspired minerality laced with notes of lemongrass. As the wine aerates and opens up, a subtle, creamy vanilla aroma adds intrigue. Once on the palate, the lush fruit character plays very nicely against the bright acidity. This wine has great continuity from the first inhalation to the clean and bright finish. As is important with all of our wines, you’ll find the Glacier Ridge to be graciously complimentary to a variety of cuisines. Chill the wine to no cooler than 50 degrees to experience the nuanced aromatics fully.
  • 2014 Pico Creek
    From the gorgeously dense color, to the exceptionally silky finish, this wine is rock solid. To keep aromatics in line with the structure, we bottled this wine bit younger than is typical. As with most juveniles, a little patience goes a long way. Initially upon opening the nose is a touch shy showing earthy mineral notes of flint and iron shavings. With some time the personality opens up to show ripe plum and sweet cranberry aromas. The elegant and contemplative structure carries flavors of dark stone fruits and wet earth. Supple but assertive Merlot tannin carries the flavors to a graceful finish. In its youth you may choose to decant this wine an hour before service.
  • 2014 Proprietor's Reserve
    The goal for the Proprietor’s Reserve was to show complexity while still expressing the purity of the fruit that is brought forth through the beautifully bracing acidity and weighty texture. This wine is full of character, with a complex nose of citrus, ripe tangerine, lemon peel, pear and hazelnut. Exquisitely balanced with vibrancy and energy, this Chardonnay has a superb concentration in the mouth with great minerality. It will age gracefully for six to eight years.
  • 2015 Randolph
    It possesses traits of a wine blessed with both juicy ripeness and composed balance. Its great versatility makes this wine an easy choice for a weeknight pasta dish or a Saturday evening dinner party. The nose is jam-packed with lush high-toned cherry and supported by toasted oak and vanilla. In the palate, bright acidity in the attack brings forward dark stone fruit flavors of satsuma plum which course through the palate with a creamy, soft texture that lingers into the finish. While this wine will age for years, it is also remarkably drinkable in its youth.
  • 2016 Rosé Julia
    This wine has beautiful clarity with a faint violet hue. The nose is flush with bright raspberry, rose petal and a hint of peach. Lush and juicy flavors of peach and tropical fruit lead with bright acidity that gives a nicely balanced mouthfeel. Steely minerality shows on the clean finish.
  • 2014 Tempranillo Chileno
    On the nose, aromas of ripe Bing cherries are grounded by wet clay and a hint of vanilla. Plums and a touch of earthiness are found on the pallet, brightened by a nice mid-palate acidity. The lushness in the mouth balanced by finely polished tannic structure supports a wide range of foods. We suggest Mediterranean spiced chicken kebabs, roasted garlic hummus and a good friend.
  • 2014 The Pergola
    The longer growing season provided a concentrated, richly textured wine. Aromas of bright plum and blackberry concentrate jump out of the glass. The dense aromatics yield to spicy dark stone fruit and wet clay which is very typical of our hillside vineyard. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth to release its primary fruit aromas and relax the tannic structure.
  • 2015 Three Sisters Cuvée
    In the glass, the wine displays a beautiful ruby red hue, proclaiming its freshness and spritely acidity. Creamy strawberry yields to ripe raspberry as the wine blossoms on the nose. The bright fruit aromatics are buoyed by spicy vanilla originating from new American oak barrels. On the palate, the dominant Syrah exhibits spice and pepper. The Grenache/ responsible for the bright acid, lends vibrant raspberry notes, while the mourvèdre reigns in the other varietals with composed earthiness. Pleasingly fine tannins offer length and a delicate finish and to this well-balanced wine.
  • 2015 White Wine Three Sisters Cuvée
    The driving force behind our 2015 bottling of Three Sisters White is an elegant minerality. We put Grenache Blanc in the driver’s seat for this vintage to highlight the strengths of this beautiful varietal. The Viognier component was dialed back to 20% but still makes its presence known with floral aromatics. The 13% Roussanne adds richness to the mid-palate while the 10% Picpoul Blanc punctuates the acid profile. The resulting cuvee is one of composed restraint that allows all of the components to shine without creating any shadows.
