Verdelho is a Portuguese grape that is rarely found in the US. It is crisp and delicious, with
strong citrus notes and a pleasing, long-lasting finish. This is a unique wine that is light enough to be
used as an aperitif, yet strong enough to pair beautifully with both red and white meat.
This wine is a classic Napa-style Chardonnay, and was fermented in 100% American oak barrels. It is a rich, lush white wine,
with tropical fruit flavors and a buttery finnish.
Tempranillo is the most prestigious grape in
Spain's Rioja region. This is a robust wine with loads of fruit up
front, and the pleasant, earthy finish that is so reminiscent of the
finest Rioja wines. The wine was aged in small oak barrels, and is an
excellent accompaniment with a wide range of foods.
This is a wonderfully balanced wine, with heavy (for a Pinot) dark fruit flavors
and a pleasingly crisp acidity. The wine was
aged in small French and American oak
barrels for 14 months.
Malbec, one of France's
historic "noble" grape varietals, is well-known in its native Bordeaux
and in the Mendoza region of Argentina. Our Malbec has produced a wine
that is rich and supple, with mouth-filling dark fruit flavors.
This wine is a wonderful
Zinfandel, with a spicy fruit nose, characteristic jammy berry and
spice on the palate, and a pleasing hint of black pepper on the
lingering finish. Our Zin is an excellent choice with lighter meat
dishes, such as chicken or pork, as well as classic all-American fare
such as cheeseburgers or pizza.

and this wine proudly follows our legendary 1997 Crescendo.
Syrah is a grape known or

This Syrah is phenomenal... definitely our best Syrah yet! The wine was

is a beautiful accompaniment to red meats, roasted chicken, and aged
master composition of
two great varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
