2010 The Grander - Red Wine Blend

This is THE big red blend that we've been promising everyone we'd make. With a great balance of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, Central Coast Syrah, and Sonoma County Granache "The Grander" is a unique, full bodied wine crafted to enjoy at a special event or with a favorite meal. This wine pairs well with blue cheese, a pork ragout, or a fine cut of beef.

2010 Monterey County Chardonnay

Our first chardonnay comes from the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey county, known for cool morning fog and breezes from Monterey Bay, followed by warm afternoons thanks to direct southern exposures to the sun. It is a medium-bodied white wine with a hint of oak. Aromas of citrus and apple combine with flavors of pear and butterscotch and lead to a delightfully smooth and crisp finish. Enjoy it with roasted chicken, fresh seafood, hearty cheeses, and pastas with cream sauce.

2009 Santa Barbara County Syrah

Our 2009 Santa Barbara County Syrah continues our tradition of bold overtones of blackberry, dark cherry, blueberry and black pepper. With this vintage however, we blended the syrah with a touch of viognier giving it hints of mango and apricot and smooth well-rounded tannins. This wine is great paired with french onion soup, baked ham, or a big juicy steak.

2007 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

Our 2007 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel has a medium deep color with a brick red hue. Elegant cherry and sage aromas with subtle dried tobacco leaf notes add an extra layer to the aromatic profile. It is vibrant, and packed with supple plum, licorice and mineral flavors. The sweet fruit expression leaves a long lasting impression that carries through to the finish. It is best enjoyed with barbecued meats and vegetables, and dark chocolate.

"Out of the gates this Zin was riveting lending a seductive bouquet of toasted vanilla, dill and concentrated gobs of hedonistic fruit that would have the power to seduce even the most stubborn of cynics. Rich, refined and with glorious depth and polished smooth tannin, this Zin by a landslide is one of the best Zins I have ever tasted with a consistency and finish that keeps rewarding the blessed sip after sip."

2006 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

Our 2006 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel has a deep garnet color. Rich aromas of brambleberry radiate to the nose. Lots of big fruit flavors in the mouth, ripe red berries, plum, briar, leading to spicy pepper and oak in a long satisfying finish. It's an elegant and well-integrated wine that can be enjoyed on its own, or would pair well with grilled meats.

"Big Fish 2006 Zinfandel: Big in flavor, with black currant, cherry pie and cocoa flavors that finish with a bit of raisiny Port. Yet the wine is fully dry, and appeals for its classically elegant tannic structure. Drink now."
