Rose
Aromas of cherry, wild raspberry, blood orange, rhubarb, salt and Herbs de Provence carry over to the palate, where you also pick up some nice minerality and bright acidity.
Paired With: Citrus Cucumber Salad

Riesling
Full flavored Riesling with aromas driven by stone fruit, mineral notes, wet rock, citrus and floral.  Its taut on the palate but with beautiful focus and lingering notes of honeysuckle and crushed rock. 
Paired With: Thai Ramen Bowl with Pickled Mushrooms 

Chardonnay
Firm, juicy, refreshing with aromas of Pippin apples, jasmine and some citrus along with warm caramel.  These flavors intensify on the palate where they are joined by light tropical notes and a streak of minerality on its mid-weight frame.  Power meets finesse here! 
Paired With: Jerk Chicken with Grilled Pineapple

 Merlot
Aromas explode with black cherry, dark chocolate and boysenberry, and then follows up with notes of vanilla, crushed gravel, wet earth and tar. The wine is both forceful and elegant, and finishes long and lush! 
Paired With: Sliced Beef with Puttanesca Butter on Crostini

Red Blend
Aromas of cocoa, coffee, tobacco, sweet black cherry, licorice, underbrush, gravel, and loads of cassis (fancy for black currant).  It's an intense dark blue/purple in color with tremendous purity, depth and focus.  Tannins are present, giving firm structure.  
Paired With: Chocolate Pot de Crème and Orange Biscotti
