2016 Folded Hills August White
On Sale $25.99
This is a refreshing white blend, tightly wound although quite subtle. Light in the glass, it shows aromas of lime skin, peach, dried honeysuckle and white lily. The palate is tightly wound and bright with delicate pome-fruit flesh flavors.

2017 Folded Hills Lilly Rosé
On Sale $22.99
This Grenache-based rosé is one of the best of the year, showing tight aromas of strawberry, pink rose petals and crushed chalk. The palate is framed by an incredible acidic sizzle and chalky grip, carrying expertly subdued flavors of raspberry and red plum.

2016 Folded Hills Grenache “Grant’s”
On Sale $29.99
The 2016 Grenache Grant is a pliant, supple and nuanced wine with lovely varietal character. Expressive red berry fruit and floral overtones grace this racy, layered Grenache. The 2016 offers terrific balance and overall presence.

2015 Folded Hills Grenache Ballard Canyon
On Sale $54.99
Very pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Ballard Canyon Grenache opens with fragrant rose petal and dried lavender notes over a core of kirsch and raspberry leaves plus a touch of baking spices. Medium-bodied, elegant, softly structured and oh-so-pretty in the mouth, it has lovely expression and a long, velvet-lined, spicy finish.

2015 Folded Hills August Rhone Blend
On Sale $32.99
Pliant and bold, the 2015 Red August is another gorgeous wine from Folded Hills. Dark cherry and plum are pushed forward in this beautifully layered, supple wine. The 2015 is 64% Grenache and 36% Syrah.

2016 Folded Hills Syrah Ballard Canyon
On Sale $68.99
The 2016 Syrah Stolpman Vineyard is a remarkable wine for many reasons. Translucent and explosive, with terrific energy, the Stolpman Syrah is deep and powerful, as wines from this site are, and yet it is not at all heavy, which is one of the pitfalls in Ballard Canyon. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender and floral notes play off the firm, grippy tannins in a wonderfully complete, inviting Syrah. The Stolpman was done with fully destemmed fruit, whereas the other reds all have some whole cluster influence.
