About The Wines . . .
Relax Riesling: Slightly dry with an enticing fruity bouquet, it shows intense flavors of apples and peaches with a hint of citrus. Serve chilled.
Fes Parker Viognier: On the nose this Viognier delivers refreshing scents of ripe peach, pink grapefruit, jasmine, honeysuckle, pear, vanilla and baking spices. Flavors of white apricot, honeydew melon and citrus combine with vanilla and a hint of oak to please the palate.
Bogle Petite Sirah: Soft and succulent, rich and ripe, this Port overflows with decadent dark cherry, cocoa and pipe tobacco on the nose. Expressive and enticing, the dark fruit of black raspberries and elderberries seduces your palate and leads to touches of chocolate and caramel on the finish.
Winehaven Red Ice Wine: A delicious luxury borne of patience and snow-covered hillsides. This wine is made from frozen grapes harvested by hand during the pre-dawn hours on our vineyard's Slippery Slope.
Dow's LBV Port: Dow's Vintage Ports are purple-black, austere, complex and intensely concentrated, full-bodied and balanced with very fine peppery tannins.
