    A beautiful aroma of crisp green apples and pears fill the nose. The luscious flavors on the palate are highlighted by toasty oak and a slight flinty complexity from our soil. The long finish is reminiscent of a fine French white burgundy.

    2012 Santa Cruz Mountains Estate Merlot
    Aromas of cherries, blackberries and dark chocolate with hints of cedar define the wine. These highlights carry through to the palate where the flavors are intense and rich. This full bodied wine has a very long lingering finish. The wine should age well for five to eight years.

    2011 Santa Cruz Mountain Estate Syrah
    The wine has very complex aromas of boysenberries, violets and cedar. Ripe berries and subtle tannins highlight the palate. The rich flavors carry through on the finish. The wine should age well for the next three to five years.

    2012 Santa Cruz Mountain Estate Zinfandel
    The wine has an earthy aroma of plum and strawberry jam. A pronounced spicy-berry character on the palate typifies our estate grown Zins. A fine balance of fruit, acid, tannin leave a long lingering finish.
