2020 Scarlet Seduction – Merlot aged in a used applejack whiskey barrel
2020 Scarlet Seduction – Merlot aged in a used applejack whiskey barrelRed Wine
Our 2020 Scarlet Seduction is a Chilean Merlot, aged for almost 12 months in a used Applejack Whiskey Barrel, from our friends at Tenth Ward Distilling in Frederick. A slight aroma of whiskey, then a well-balanced and full-bodied merlot on the front of the tongue, just a hint of apple on the mid palate, and a gentle whiskey finish. Well balanced, and the whiskey finish tames the tannins. Delicious on it's own, also pairs exceptionally well with red meat (steak, charceuterie, etc.) or a sharp cheddar. Delicious now, and will age comfortably for up to 5 years.
2020 Love at First Sip – Blackberry Shiraz
2020 Love at First Sip – Blackberry ShirazRed Wine
2020 Love at First Sip - Blackberry Shiraz. Shiraz grapes from CA, fermented dry, aged on blackberries, slightly sweetened. This is our third iteration, and we cannot keep it in stock. It is a slow process to infuse the wine with blackberries, and it literally flies off the shelves. Experience this amazing wine today!
2020 French Kiss – Apricot Chablis
2020 French Kiss – Apricot Chablis
2020 French Kiss - Apricot Chablis. This delicious wine is made from Chablis grapes, fermented dry, then kissed with Apricot and sweetened. It is cloudy from the puree, and only 2% sugar, so it is still a semi-sweet (or semi-dry, depending on how you define sweetness). Delicious on its own, the perfect addition to any summer activities!
2020 Soft Kiss – Semi Sweet Rose’
2020 Soft Kiss – Semi Sweet Rose’Rose Wine

2020 Sauvignon Blanc from Suisun Valley, CA. Crisp, dry, refreshing, with notes of citrus, lemon, honeysuckle.

2020 Chardonnay aged in oak
2020 Chardonnay aged in oakWhite Wine
2020 Chardonnay from Suisun Valley, CA. Aged in neutral French Oak for 6 months, a classic Chardonnay with notes of vanilla and pineapple. The oak is present but it doesn't punch you in the nose. Pairs well with white meat, seafood, or just a charceuterie plate and your favorite baguette.

2016 Le Bubbly – Sparkling Wine made in the traditional Champagne methodWhite Wine
Our 2016 Sparkling Wine, called Le Bubbly, is made from California Chardonnay grapes. Made in the traditional Champagne Method, this Sparkling is barrel fermented and aged for 13 months, then racked and bottled, where secondary fermentation occurred. We let it bottle ferment for nearly 3 years, gently building up a natural carbonation. This sparkling is dry, light, crisp and refreshing, with hints of pear, citrus and apricot.
2020 Ruby Rose

Our 2020 Ruby Rose is made from Merlot grapes, crushed and cold-soaked for 17 hours, then pressed to give an amazing ruby color. It is made in the classic French style, fermented dry and aged in a neutral French Oak barrel for 5 months. Soft and subtle aroma, hints of tart cherry and a clean, crisp finish. Delicious served slightly chilled, pairs perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner, or your favorite cheese.
2020 MerlotRed Wine
Our 2020 Merlot is made from California grapes, fermented completely dry, but for only five days. This gives the wine wonderful notes of berry on the nose, and it is not perceived as 'dry' like a typical Merlot. The wine has an almost sweet quality, but it is medium bodied with gentle tannins, and a pleasant finish, amazing fruit bouquet, and notes of blackberry, black currant, dried fruit and hints of pepper. 6 months in French Oak. Pairs well with red meat, cheese, holds up well to spicy dishes, and makes a great dessert paired with dark chocolate.
