Wines and Tasting Notes






2013 WHITE MERLOT - Estate Vineyard, JUST RELEASED
A pretty, pale salmon hue, this elegant off-dry Rosé brings subtle streaks of white melon, plum, and honey flavors accented by a lick of minerality that lingers through the finish. If you like crisp, fresh Rosés with some sweetness, this one is sure to please. Delightful with salads, appetizers, dessert, as well as autumn comfort foods! Think hearty stews, gumbos, and paella and the other white meats! Serve chilled. Only 97 cases produced!!

2012 CHARDONNAY - Estate Vineyard
A crisp, smooth, & elegant wine. The flavors are intense with melon, pear, apple & light tropical fruit, matched with toasty accents from 100% barrel fermentation. A touch of butter rounds out the finish. An easy drinking wine to enjoy with chicken, creamy pasta dishes, salmon, as well as other seafood. Serve chilled.

2010 MERLOT - Estate Vineyard
This merlot shows lots of rich jammy blackberry, ripe cherry, red currant and dark chocolate. A dry, medium bodied wine with firm tannins that round out a long finish of sweet, toasty French oak flavors. This is a fine food-pairing wine.

2009 SYRAH RESERVE - Estate Vineyard
This deep, dense Syrah offers an explosion of dark berry aromas, mixed with spice, white pepper and violets, followed by rich and intense flavors of blackberries and plums, along with spicy oak. Firm tannin and brisk acidity show on the entry and in the finish. Pairs wonderfully with grilled ribeye!

2009 CABERNET FRANC - Estate Vineyard
Tantalizing, dense, and spicy aromas consisting of red currants, raspberries, vanilla, and light French oak give way to enticing flavors of black raspberries, black cherry, and baker’s chocolate. Bright acidity and moderate tannins provide good structure and balance. Superb with alder plank salmon or grilled meats!

2013 SYRAH ROSÉ - Estate Vineyard
Always a favorite summer wine, this crisp, off-dry, pleasingly fruity Rosé retains the unique characteristics of the Syrah grape—its lovely color and nose. Rich in flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and plum, this rich and delicate wine is perfect for sipping or paired with summer’s lighter fare such as cheese, salads, seafood, and grilled chicken. Serve chilled! Very Limited Production!!

2008 ROUGE DE MORAINE (Bordeaux-Style Blend) - Estate Vineyard - Sold out
Our Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Cab Franc (27%), and Merlot (18%) is a real fruit bomb layered with dark cherries, rich plums, and toasted oak forming the base of the aromas, with cherries, pomegranates and blackberries on the palate. The dense tannin profile is complemented by dark chocolate notes and good acidity making it a great food wine.

2010 RIESLING - Sold out
Our High Hawk Riesling offers aromas of melons, apples, pears, and peaches. A hint of sweetness (1.98% residual sugar) is balanced beautifully by superb acidity and allows the flavors of ripe peaches, mandarin oranges, ripe pears, and fresh apples to shine through. Enjoy this screw-capped release! Excellent with Thai food and spicy chicken stir-fry!
