--Cherry Vanilla Dessert Wine Flathead cherries and Madagascar bourbon vanilla have been blended together to create a well-balanced dessert wine that showcases our cherries & the Madagascar vanilla to perfection!

--Weeping Wall Sweet Syrah Dessert Wine What's old is new again. We are bringing back an old favorite from the back of the cellar. One of the first wines we produced, it has a cascade of sweet fruitiness followed with a clean finish. A limited number of bottles were created so be sure to add some to your cellar before this vintage is gone.

Red Wines

--2013 Barbera The 'People's wine.' This medium bodied, northern Italian delight opens with bright fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and finishes with mild tannins. Godere il vino! (Enjoy the wine!)
--2013 Cabernet Franc One of the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc is most noted as a blending wine. Smooth and round, yet just enough of a pepper finish to make its own statement.
--2013 Pinot Noir We hope you enjoy our Pinot Noir as a stand alone summer treat or paired with any summer fare. The raspberry opening leads into a well-balanced body and a medium tannin finish is sure to please. Raise a glass to summer and Salute!

--2013 Cabernet Sauvignon After several on-site tastings, the reviews are in! ...a limousine of cabs, a full-bodied wine with gentle oakiness. Bold, yet soft. You can taste the sun on grapes. Dark cherry and fruit forward with a smooth, velvety finish. We are so happy to have so many great reviews. Enjoy and review our Cabernet for yourself!

--2014 Mal-Bera A limited release blend of 70% Barbera and 30% Malbec makes for a desirable blend.


Special Reserve Wines

--2012 Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon This bad boy cab comes out of an extended stay in time out. Taste after taste, we waited for him to age properly. Each tasting gave us 'It's not that bad.' So we put him back in time out. After surviving the terrible twos, he finally behaved and 'It's not that bad Cab' was released. Enjoy the mature taste of our Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Affectionately known as 'It's not that bad Cab.'


White Wines

--2013 Chardonnay This is a well balanced semi-oaked style Chardonnay. With notes of pears, apples and mangoes all wrapped up in a warm honey shell.
--2014 Gewurztraminer Our Gewurztraminer has aromas of honeysuckle, apples and honey. The flavor, while dry, is like a pear dipped in honey. It is a bit tart and very refreshing. Pair it with grilled halibut or baked cod.
--2015 Riesling Slightly dry with a bright acidity and semi-tart finish.
