Bordeaux Varietals & Special Lots
Bordeaux varietals are at the heart of what we do, although we can't help but venture into other areas that pique our interest. We love a good red! Our mainstays are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and a Meritage blend. From time to time, we also release other Bordeaux varietals such as Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Other favorites include Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Cinsault.
Our reserve red wines are a special treat. They are produced in very small lots - only 25 to 50 cases at a time. They are pampered and aged for an extended period of time - at least 24 months - in very high quality new French oak.
