Verdelho is a variety that is quickly gaining popularity in many countries. Our release of this variety, the wine exhibits masses of fruit with passion fruit and orange peel very evident. It is a mouth filling wine with great length of flavor and a brightness that ensures compatibility with many types of food. An awesome wine for summer!
We went big and still haven’t gone home! The 2013 Reserve Chardonnay allowed us to show our fun side while paying tribute to the classic California style that made this varietal what it is today.
The 2017 Limited Release Grenache has some spicy notes but with strawberry fruit in the background. We used neutral oak to allow the fruit to present itself naturally. This wine pairs well with lamb, or lighter meats, but is versatile enough to handle some richer foods as well.
Dark red fruits, with spice and pepper notes on the palate with balancing acidity. Pair with barbecued meats, lamb shanks, and roasted bell peppers.
Zinfandel is certainly a Californian favorite and to release one means it must meet all the expected criteria. This wine does that...and more.
The Reserve tier of our Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon is only released in years when the grapes have reached outstanding quality. We employ a very stringent selection process of vineyard blocks on which we have enhanced our growing practices. There is a further narrowing of selection during fermentation and then the final phase is individual barrel selection.
Violet and red, but slightly transparent, this is a luscious red wine to lust after. This is an intense wine that is rich and complex with tannic characteristics. It would pair perfectly with a beef or vegetable stew.
The term CV refers to the original vineyard holdings on our estate, Continental Vineyards, and this very limited wine is only produced in exceptional vintage years.
This Grenache pairs best with a juicy prime rib, a side of steamed artichoke with warm butter, some boneless spare ribs, or a pasta with a rich white sauce. This wine matures beautifully with age, so store some bottles for your cellar and a few for enjoying for now.
Fully opaque, but filled with violets and deep ruby reds, this 2016 Merlot ferments for 20 months in medium toasted barrels made from new French oak heads and American oak staves.
