Sexy stuff here, with its silky, elegantly textured fruit. Light on its feet, due to the freshness, full bodied and concentrated due to all the ripe, juicy fruit and with a spicy, fruity, clean finish that feels and tastes great.

The Rye whiskey aromas are uniquely subtle, and meld well with the silky, dense-fruit Syrah with hints of cigar box and fresh leaf tobacco. The intense, dusty-black fruit flavors have a warm intermingling of the Rye whiskey flavors. It tastes like a sumptuous wine, but then it has transformed into a different animal, with the Rye whiskey aromas and tastes. More delicious chewy, bacon-fat tones, with deep blackberry and black raspberry jam highlights. It invokes a pipe smoke-filled room with old classic novels lying about.
A beautiful dry Rosé with aromas of alpine strawberry and delicate Spring flowers. Those aromatics follow through to the palate where they meet flavors of raspberries, watermelon, hints of spice and minerality.

A delightfully fresh wine with bright acidity. It has floral aromas of hibiscus flowers and tangerine. The flavors are bursting with green apple and fresh lime. It’s clean and light with crisp minerality. It’s a zesty citrus bomb all around.
Right golden straw in color. Wonderful aromas open up with summer-ripe peaches meeting tropical fruits and flowers. The silky-smooth flavors are reminiscent of baked apples and toasty vanilla bean. The lively acidity makes this an extremely well-balanced Chardonnay. The finish is long and fruity, with just a hint of hazelnuts.
