Our flagship wine is the genesis of what most great undertakings are - passion, and commitment to excellence. As in Bordeaux, our wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with our other classic Bordeaux varietals, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This wine is aged about 20 months in 75 percent new French oak, with further aging in the bottle before release. Produced exclusively from the Pellet Vineyard, our wine can be enjoyed today, and has the ability to age for decades.

This single-vineyard estate wine is made by Nils Venge and Tom Rinaldi, who have somehow managed to capture quiet elegance and powerful fruit at the same time. Red-fruit driven, it's round and rich, with moderate tannin and cassis, clove and black pepper highlights.

A powerful expression of extracted blackberry, dusty earth, cedary oak and crushed rock. Although the flavors are separate now they are well-proportioned. Should they come together at the right time, this could be special. Best from 2020 through 2030. 345 cases made.

The attractive 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard is from a relatively historic site, first planted in 1863. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of oak and earth. It's medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic and would benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last 20 or more years.
