2013 CALIFORNIA COASTAL CABERNET SAUVIGNON
A full bodied California Cabernet Sauvignon without a doubt, but this wine has a soft and delicate side with a complex range of aromatics and flavors. The palate includes notes of blackberry, dried cherry, velvety chocolate, tobacco spice, and cassis all framed in the toast and vanilla flavors of French oak. This is a wine with layers of flavor, a long smooth finish, and dry tannins that round out the palate nicely.
2013 RUSSIAN RIVER CHARDONNAY | THE RANCH RESERVE
A classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay with an intriguing nose and an extremely broad palate. Leading flavors include baked apple, fresh pear, lemon rind, and key lime pie. Focused oak provides a baked vanilla spice essence and offers a strong backbone without overpowering the fresh fruit. Give this wine time to breath and the reward will be worth the wait with a creamy, refreshing, and sustaining finish.
2013 CALIFORNIA COASTAL CHARDONNAY (SLIGHT OAK)
Much like the last vintage, this slightly oaked Chardonnay is a traditional California Chardonnay in regards to its full body and broad palate with refreshing notes of pear, lemon, kiwi, and a touch of vanilla. A light hint of oak and a crisp acidity leads to a well balanced mineral finish that will leave you wanting just one more sip (and then one more…), be careful, it can be a vicious cycle.

This small appellation is home to some of the finest wines in the world, and although they are a little more expensive, we think you get what you pay for. Go ahead, splurge… you won’t be disappointed.
2013 CALIFORNIA COASTAL MERLOT
A super crowd pleaser, this Merlot is sure to be the hit of your dinner party. Aggressive aromatics provide delicate aromas of vanilla and fresh berries. The palate is juicy; bursting with lean plum, bramble, and a light jam. There is just enough oak influence to dust the wine with a subtle hint of mocha leading to a long enjoyable finish. One of our house favorites!
