2008 No Chardonnay
Monterey, California
Made without the use of oak or malolactic fermentation, which allows the purity of the Chardonnay fruit to shine. With virtually no human manipulation, this is as pure an expression of the vineyard as you will find. A bright alluring nose with high tone tropical fruit and rich melon flavors, vibrant and pure on the palate without lactic acid to weigh it down.

2009 2009 Hahn Meritage
Santa Lucia Highlands
Pronounced blackberry and blueberry on the nose mingle with cedar spice and a hint of wood, while notes of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla and dried herbs please the palate. Dark and seductive in the glass, this classic Bordeaux-style blend manages to be approachable yet complex.

2008 Stratton Lummis Cabernet
Napa, California
Aromas of dark wild berries and fragrant flowers. Flavors of black cherries, elegantly balanced with hints of Rutherford soil.

2010 Klinker Brick Old Vines Zinfandel
