2016 Light Horse Cabernet
Intense in both its deep ruby color and dense bouquet, this delectable Cabernet’s aromas of fresh earth, jasmine and magnolia jump out of the glass. Layers of blueberry and raspberry bring fruity notes to the fold and are supported by refreshing acidity which runs through the mid-palate and melts into a long finish. Soft tannins provide a smooth texture, with a touch of oak.

2015 Whiplash Red Blend
A lovely, dark cherry hue and opens with warm, comforting aromas. A fruit forward wine with dark cherry, fig and mixed berry pie flavors with hints of baking spices such as fresh clove and butterscotch and earthy tones. Bright pomegranate notes reveal the wine’s balanced acidity. Medium-bodied with good lift and juicy tannins that leave you wanting another sip. Smooth tannins grip the midpalate and leave an easy finish of sweet oak. 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast
