From our Winemaker Emeritus, Peter Story's vineyard, the 2018 Negroamaro has lots of black cherries and tart blackberries...fruits that you would associate with a fruit tart. It is slightly herbaceous, has rustic tannins and a moderate body. Pairings that would fit well with the rustic tannins are BBQ ribs or sweeter Asian influenced dishes.

This is our first Pinot Noir - the red fruity brightens across the palate with raspberry and spice balanced by the French toasted oak aromas. It is soft and silky through the middle and finishes leaving a juicy memory in the mouth with just the right acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel.

The 2016 Zinfandel has been blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Syrah. A hint of citrus zest adds to the nice blackberry and strawberry fruits.
