A fan favorite, this Gewürztraminer is a flavorful wine with bright, expressive fruit and clove spice. This is a lush style of Gewürztraminer with intense floral character, yet it still maintains the grape’s natural crisp acidity.

This golden wine offers rich flavors, ripe fruits and bright acidity, with an aroma of lemon curd, pear and cinnamon. The lemon and cardamon spice flavors shine, with a lush texture and long, smooth finish.

Bourbon Barrel-aged Chardonnay-the world’s first and only Chardonnay aged in bourbon barrels-reflects the expressive character of this truly original approach to aging. We craft this wine from cool, coastal fruit in Monterey County, before aging it in a combination of new and used bourbon barrels. The new barrels give the wine its rich, toasty flavor. The used barrels-selected from a renowned Kentucky distillery-offer notes of vanilla and baking spices from the fine bourbon that once filled these casks.
Intense aromas of ripe pineapple and toasted coconut emerge from the glass, framed by hints of toasted marshmallow and vanilla bean custard. A rich and creamy palate of grilled pineapple, lemon custard, graham cracker, toffee and vanilla bean is balanced by bright acidity. Subtle undertones of toasty oak and baking spices round out the lingering finish on this decadent Chardonnay.
We craft this richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon with Monterey County fruit, picked at the peak of ripeness in our coastal vineyards. In a truly original alternative to traditional aging, we set aside a portion of the blend to age in a mix of new and used bourbon barrels. The new barrels give the wine its deep undertones of toasted oak. The used barrels—selected from a renowned Kentucky distillery—exude notes of vanilla and dried herbs, hinting at the fine bourbon that once graced these casks. The result is a bold, flavorful wine, unlike any other Cabernet.

Layered and complex, our Bourbon Barrel-aged Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with aromas of blackberry cobbler, graham cracker, brown sugar, milk chocolate, coffee and smoke. A palate of blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, caramel and mocha is framed by soft, chewy tannins and a hint of toasted oak on the lingering finish.

 Incognito might not be the wine you think it is! Reserved and softer than the varietals may lead you to believe, the wine is interlaced with flavors of freshly smashed summer red berries, pepper, earth and spice. A great food friendly bistro style red!
