We select the best small lots for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Zinfandel from our historic vineyards each harvest. These wines are impeccably balanced – crafted to be elegant, distinctive experiences for any wine lover.
Fig Tree Vineyard
This luscious wine starts with hints of citrus and green apple and finishes with crème brule. The palate is rich and full with flavors of poached pear, caramel and butterscotch. The long finish has great balance.
Pair with a cheese plate or your favorite rissoto!
Primarily coming from our warmest vineyard in Calistoga, this vintage is rich and full-bodied. A new release of our Reserve Zinfandel brings elegance to this grape with complexity and balance. Big zinfandel with bright red fruit and a plush mid-palate makes the perfect segway to a lengthy finish. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, and anise compliment vanilla and fresh cracked pepper. Dark cocoa nib and lavender with hints of expresso are expressed as the bottle opens up.

Black cherry and fig compote with a beautiful floral nose compliment the vanilla, cedar, and blueberry pie. A hint of coffee, toasted coconut, and huckleberries balance this full-bodied wine! The perfect winter Cabernet.

Classic big, bold Napa Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully structured with a dense purple color packed with aromas of cherry, blueberry, clove, and vanilla. Flavors of dark cherry, licorice, black currants complement the long layered finish. It will age beautifully for 25 years.
