Sensous soft easy-drinking reds are ripe & fruity, but not tart or tannic. They are thoroughly modern “crowd-pleasers” that do not need food to taste their best, and some are not fully dry.

FOOD PAIRING: These fruity reds can handle sugar and spice better than more classic reds, so they are perfect for ASIAN CUISINE, COMFORT FOODS, BRUNCH DISHES plus casual fare like BURGERS & BBQ.


We strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and utilizing minimally intrusive winemaking techniques.

Tasting Notes

An aromatic bouquet of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry and a touch of violet spring from the glass in this 2020 Merlot. 


Medium-bodied with a textured palate filled with jammy fruit flavors, fig and toasted almonds balanced by a touch of earthiness. The finish is structured and satisfying.

Vintage Notes: 

2020 kicked off with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest started in early August and all things pointed to normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.
