2016 Reserve Zinfandel ~ New Release! These grapes have been grown on our estate since 1906. Our Reserve is selected from our top barrels to craft an age-worthy and complex wine. Retail $50 | Explorer $42.50 ( )
2016 Petite Sirah ~ New Release! Our 2016 Petite Sirah is inky and lush with large fruit components and pairs amazing with BBQ. Retail $40 | Explorer $34 ( )
2016 Cabernet Franc ~ New Release! Picked under the right conditions, this wine exhibits ripe red fruit with savory notes. Betty Ballentine's favorite wine! Retail $50 | Explorer $42.50 ( )
2017 Chenin Blanc ~ A definite crowd pleaser, this refreshing wine has flavors of citrus, pear, and apple. The perfect cocktail hour wine with a bright fruit forward finish. Retail $30 | Explorer $25.50 ( )
2015 Frizzante Malvasia Bianca ~ There is a slight effervescence to the palate and fair amount of sweetness, but the profile is light, airy and refreshing. Can we say patio pounder? Retail $30 | Explorer $25.50 ( )

2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Specially crafted for quality and complexity, this vintage showcases dark fruit of blueberry and plum, with hints of dark chocolate nibbs and slight smoky vanilla. Only five barrels produced. Retail $110 | Explorer $93.50 ( )
