Another stellar vintage of our Sauvginon Blanc!
Nils's popular blend, sourced from our own Oakville District of Napa Valley. Named in honor of our best winery pooch, Chloe, who happily greets our guests. Chloe was born on July 23, 2012 in Lake County, California about 30 miles from her current home. Chloe’s mother was a Malamute, owned by long-time friends of Nils, and her father was an Australian shepherd who jumped the fence one day: a nice blend, inspiring Nils to bring her on board. Nils gave Chloe lifetime Vineyard Dog status, one of the best gigs out there.

A dark purple in the glass with aromas of black tea and ripe currant. On the palate, bright and juicy, evoking the bursts of flavor found in peak-season cherries. Balanced tannins and a medium body lead to a cool, silky, long finish. This is an immensely approachable and food-friendly red wine. Pair with steaks, lamb, herb-crusted roasts and roasted vegetables.
This Zinfandel has aromas of black currants and blackberries. It has good body and flavor with hints of black tea, followed by a touch of sweetness and a long lingering finish. Excellent with beef, lamb and cheeses.
Trousseau, the varietal most famously utilized to make port wine, is leveraged by our expert team here to create a "Late Harvest" dessert wine that will light your fire.
