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.

Light, dry and sophisticated with aromas of raspberry, cherry, roasted red plum and a hint of licorice.
Aromas of espresso, violets and black licorice with a flavorful and long finish.
Medium bodied and fruit forward with aromas of tobacco and cassis, with a hint of raspberry. Nice acidity and tannins that will get your attention.
Delicate aromas of mixed berries and herbes de Provence with a bit of dark chocolate.
Big bodied wine full of black currant, white pepper and herbal aromas.
Earthy aromas of herbes de Provence, smoke and boysenberry with smooth, mouth-coating tannins.
Typical of our Meritage blends, this wine is Merlot-centric. Lots of aromas, good Bordeaux-style acid structure with tanins that work well with any food. GOLD MEDAL winner at the 2014 Long Beach Grand Cru & 2014 Sommelier Challenge.
This Middle Ridge Signataure Meritage is a wonderfully complex wine. It has luscious dark cherry aromas with a light floral note, and a beautiful finish with lingering tannins.
Coyote Run is a surprisingly different Meritage blend – with Malbec and Petit Verdot complementing a base of Merlot. The Merlot and Malbec make it an “easy drinker” and the Petit Verdot gives the wine a nice, round mouthfeel.
This isn't just a good Merlot - it's a great one! It's elegant and smooth, and richly aromatic.
