Reminiscent of California's heritage, but reborn in its new form. The new standard in wine, by the glass.

We do "White Elephant" for all family get togethers and dinners where anyone has to travel. I brought some of these bottles and most certainly WON WHITE ELEPHANT!! I actually ended up with some goofy headphones but like this was the best gift.
Serious red wine blend here. Big on fruit, age to provide structure, but very well balanced so it's not overwhelming like some of the silly CA cabs you see today. There's an elegant piece here that I can't put my finger on, but I really enjoy.
We got a mixed pack and loved them both! Had to re-order to share with the "cool" neighbors hehe
Bought to have individual glasses, but this wine is SO VERY GOOD. It's just a perfect red blend, a little oak, a little age, a little fruit, all of which come together in the perfect harmony that is a red wine blend.
This wine was great! Sweet bottle too.
