Beatty Ranch

April 2013

Our new Howell Mountain addition is sure to please. Briary notes of blackberry and cassis expand on the palate, while a rich, coating structure adds depth and complexity. This wine is sure to sell out quickly since our first release is of very limited quantity.

Copper Streak Vineyard

April 2013

Juicy, dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis blend nicely with hints of mineral and earth to make this fruit profile quite unique. The wine’s natural acidity and rich texture is reminiscent of hillside fruit, even though the vineyard is on the flats of the Stags Leap District. This will be a wine of great distinction.
