Eric Kent Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2012 750mlOur 2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay showcases the citrus side of the grape, balanced and food friendly, yet seductive in texture.

The length of the finish is remarkably long and satisfying.
Quilceda Creek CVR Red 2013 750mlThe 2013 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Valley Red Wine is a blend of declassified lots that did not make it into our flagship wines. Having this strict selection allows our best wines to compete at the highest level on a global scale. The resulting wine is filled with red fruits, smoke, spice and minerals. This blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec will best be enjoyed over the next 15 years.
Rodney Strong Upshot Red Blend 2016 750mlThis wine was made to enhance the enjoyment of life in a fun and inviting way. The Zinfandel that comes off one of our estate vineyards, called Hubbard Ranch, starts as the foundation of the wine and gives it a great sense of place. The Merlot adds a sense of sensuality and softness that invites you in to the heart of the wine. The Malbec is the flesh and soul of the wine. It adds beautiful blue and red fruit and contributes to the mouthfeel with depth and texture. The Petite Verdot is the confidence of the blend and adds intensity and complexity. Lastly, because the wine is about enjoyment, I added a splash of Riesling for the fun…It adds a floral high note. The UPSHOT of blending these varietals is a wine that was made to underscore my passion for blending wine, a place that I love, and my enjoyment for this amazing life I get to live.

With a pale ruby color and purple hues, this wine has aromas dominant of white fresh flowers, white apricot marmalade, ripe strawberries, juicy blackberries, and underbrush. Ageing in large Hungarian Oak puncheons provided characters of sweet Five Chinese Spice, salted caramel, sweet tobacco, and uncrushed black peppercorn. The finish is long and shows the classic soft chalky tannins that resemble the vineyard name - Rutherford Dust.
Rodney Strong Brothers Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 750mlDeep, dark ruby color, with vibrant red currant, fresh herb, crème de cassis, and cedar aromas, this elegant and full bodied wine coats the palate with supple textures, anchored by soft tannins and balanced acidity, with cedar and rich red fruit flavors echoing on the long finish.
Andrew Will Sorella 2011 750mlThe Sorella is an attractive balance of rich tannins, bright acids, and flavors.

Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2017 750mlWith the alluring color of dark plums, this wine features scents of ripe cherries with cocoa, pomace, blueberry, toasted wood and a soft, powdery whiff of old-fashioned lipstick.

Tannins are structured yet extremely fine, providing a lush, lingering mouth feel. On the finish, a wisp of acidity adds balance and freshness, a reminder of this wine's origins in a cool, coastal region of California.
Robert Foley Merlot 2012 750mlA Merlot for Cabernet lovers - black currant, cassis and ripe cherry aromas follow through in a sweet lush mid-palate. Candied fruit flavors and velvety tannins are balanced with bright natural acidity, providing a long finish with suggestions of chocolaty mocha. This wine's strong structure and spice is from our own Howell Mountain fruit, while its round femininity comes from Calistoga to create a perfect textural balance. (800 cases produced)
Robert Foley Howell Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 750mlThis tiny production represents a new direction for us, a tribute to the wines we are growing at the new Foley Compound on Howell Mountain. This is truly the most densely packed claret-family red wine we are producing and while this bottling is so very small - only one barrel - we will slowly grow in this area as our vineyards become more fruitful. Small production, HUGE WINE.
Coho Michael Black Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot 2011 750mlIn 2004 COHO was privileged to become associated with the Michael Black Vineyard and began to purchase the entire output.
