2013 Reserve Petit Verdot

$55 750ml   $120 Magnum

45 Cases produced


This is truly a WOW wine! Petite Verdot is one of the five Bordeaux varietals that's traditionally been used in red blends. Winemaker, Shane Howard, has taken it to the next level with this reserve wine and crafted a real treat for us.


The nose greets you with fragrances of violet, cassis, berry and undertones of sage.  The color is an intense deep ruby red and the long silky legs are just waiting to be caressed. There's a lot of action going on with this full-bodied wine.  Flavors of black fruits, firm tannins and beautiful vanillin, blueberry and blackberry on the finish.


It's a must try with softly spiced beef mole, rich hearty lasagna, triple cream cheese or lamb kabobs. Enjoy now for special occasions or hold for 5 to 7 years.



2013 Reserve Cabernet Franc

$65 750ml  $140 Magnum

55 Cases Produced


Historically, Cabernet Franc has been used as a blending grape, but this one is the perfect example of how it can be crafted into an excellent "stand alone" wine.


The nose is incredible with notes of black pepper, leather and black currant, rounding out with a soft licorice finish and beautiful, long lasting legs. The hue is blackish blue, yet crystal clear. The incredible taste will pop in your mouth with a pleasant low acidity, bright raspberry flavors and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish.


It's still a young wine, yet completely rounded and smooth in the mouth and will only improve with age. Get this special reserve wine now. Decant and enjoy or hold for 5 -7 years.

Its a meal in a glass!



2013 Reserve Malbec

Stillwater Creek Vineyard


50 cases produced


Malbec is a versatile wine traditionally from France and South America. Vineyards in Washington State have gradually added more and more vines, with some of the best coming from Stillwater Creek Vineyard.


Our Reserve Malbec is what other Malbec's strive to be. It has aromas of cedar, tobacco, stone fruits, and blackberries, a dark brooding black cherry color and gorgeous legs. It's has layers upon layers of berry flavor and is wonderfully pleasant on the mid-palate. The flavors evolve with striking black cherry notes and a soul warming finish.


Elevate your special occasions with this exceptional wine. It would be superb with a rich red sauce, pecorino cheese drizzled with Tasmanian honey or lean cuts of meat. Enjoy now with food, or be patient and hold for 5 to 10 years.
