2014 Vigilance Chardonnay, Rolling Knolls Vineyard, Red Hills, California
On Sale $13.99
Lush flavors of apple, citrus, and ripe melon combine with lightly toasted oak and vanilla tones. The delightful balance leads to a rich and lingering finish.
2014 Vigilance Cabernet Sauvignon, Rolling Knolls Vineyard, Red Hills, California
On Sale $13.99
Crafted from our Vigilance Vineyards in the Red Hills of Lake County to create a multi-layered, well-balanced wine. Notes of black cherry and ripe current; spices and dark chocolate envelop this wine. The structured finish is dark and delicious. Enjoy!
2014 Wrath Ex Anima Chardonnay, Monterey
On Sale $17.99
Our 2015 Ex Anima Chardonnay comes from the original 35-year old, own-rooted Clone 4 planted on our estate vineyard. It is fermented (primary only) and aged for 3 months in stainless steel. The resulting wine is bright and direct, yet deceptively rich. Aromas of citron, pineapple, and guava combine to add a subtle tropical note to the nose. The palate counters with lively stone fruit and citrus, a noticeable but balanced acidity, and a full mouth feel that precedes a crushed-stone mineral finish
2013 Arietta Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa
On Sale $104.99
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and juicy from the very first taste. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice, new leather and rose petal meld together in the glass. Ripe, succulent and forward, this flashy Cabernet Sauvignon has enough softness in its contours to drink well with minimal cellaring, although it also clearly has enough depth and density to age well. The 2013 is a super-expressive Coombsville Cabernet from Arietta.
