Tasting Notes: The Royal Cuvée with a blend of 2/3 pinot noir, and 1/3 chardonnay enjoys an extended time in bottle for its secondary fermentation, resulting in wonderful complexity and a delicate mousse. The nose and palate reveal lots of apple and citrus notes, as well as bight, clean fruit in the mouth. The finish is very long and quite expressive.
Tasting Notes: Elegant, with dusty tannins, this wine is worth every dime. Blue and black fruit over cedar, baking spices, cherries and mushrooms make this complex pinot a perfect partner for grilled salmon.
Tasting Notes: This is a super-dark, almost-inky wine in color with a very sumptuous plum and cherry cola palate. The finish has soft tannic notes that are mature and not overwhelming. This wine would be really food friendly but also easily drinkable on its own.
Tasting Notes: One of the new releases from this up-and-coming winery. This is a really big wine that showcases their varietal approach using old world varietals from Italy for this effort. New and neutral French oak adds subtle smoothness to compliment rich black fruit and vanilla notes

Tasting Notes: Mostly cabernet, with some merlot, a bit of cabernet franc and petit verdot added in, this wine is a dense, brilliant red. The nose is dominated by dark red fruit, with an intriguing baked spice aspect. With plenty of weight on the palate, the finish is quite lengthy and well balanced.
Tasting Notes: A wonderful example of Central Coast pinot noir, balancing rich fruit with acidity and elegance. Brilliant dark ruby, the nose and palate share a common thread of bright and slightly spicy red fruit. The finish lingers for quite some time, with notes of warm spice.
Tasting Notes: Dr. Robert Young brings a decidedly scientific approach to the art of Texas winemaking utilizing cyro maceration, whole-berry fermentation and flash détente to highlight his signature varietal: tannat. Rich and bone dry, almost chalky with strong minerality. Black fruit notes add to the deep-inky coloring. Smooth lingering finish makes a perfect pairing for a thick rib-eye right off the grill.
Tasting Notes: Flavors of black cherry and pomegranate flow through the velvet palate with notes of violets and wildflowers. The mid-palate offers notes of forest floor, fresh meadow flowers and just a whiff of anise that flows into a finish of wild berries, sandalwood and fresh herbs.
Tasting Notes: The wine shows bright, juicy red cherries and raspberries that sink into a beautifully plush palate. The midpalate becomes gorgeously creamy while continuing to show red fruit, while also adding notes of violets and rose petals with hints of mocha. The finish is long and tantalizing with whiffs of white herbs, sage and a dusty minerality.
Tasting Notes: Dynamic flavors of black cherry, pomegranate and wild berries burst into a medley of rose petals and juicy dark fruits with freshly picked herbs wafting through the core. The finish shows notes of tea leaf, sandalwood and vanilla bean.
Tasting Notes: This is not your everyday sipper. Organic and made from select ancient vines. Complex, with honeyed stone fruits laden with zesty citrus and light spice. Fresh almond and flint with a creamy texture and long lush finish. It should age well for at least 10 years. Enjoy with seared curried scallops.
