Our Tasting Flight $12 (Please enjoy three 2oz samples of wines of your choice)
2019 Chardonnay, Mendocino
This wine was made from fruit sourced from Mendocino County, California. This classic Old World Style Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel, allowing the fruit to shine. This well balanced Chardonnay shows citrus and mineral characteristics with a hint of stone fruit
and bright acidity.
2019 8am Rose, Lodi
This wine drinker’s Rosé is crisp and slightly fruity. Fuller in body than one would expect from such a bright looking wine. Crushed, fermented and bottled right here in Highwood, Illinois, this wine is made by lightly crushing (On the Friday Night of Pumpkinfest until 8am Saturday morning) whole berry Grenache grapes, minimizing skin contact. Fermented in stainless steel. This wine is outstanding when sipped cold!
2018 Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills
Arguably one of the top Pinot Noir districts in all of California. Located just 10 miles from the ocean. The cooling breeze allows for a soft, lush, berry beginning, followed by balanced freshness and acidity with a teasing Burgundian finish.
2019 Merlot, Alexander Valley
From wonderful handpicked fruit from the Alexander Valley, this wine is loaded with rich dark berry fruit. Soft hints of chocolate and a velvety smooth mouthfeel, highlight the true character of Merlot.
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
The beautifully balanced weight and flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon is highlighted with a rich, deep plum flavor and a medium, dry finish.
2018 Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi
This amazing wine is born from 105 year old vines! You can taste the subtle maturity of the vines when you drink this velvet beauty. Deep, rich, smooth, and juicy. This wine was aged for 18 months in French Oak.
Introducing Our Bordeaux Inspired Blends
The Bordeaux region in France is arguably the most famous wine region in the world. Grapes were first planted there by the Romans in the mid first century. Bordeaux is naturally divided by the Garonne River, with the “left bank” dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and the “right bank” dominated by Merlot.
