Ratings

Wine Enthusiast 93 pts - This wine from one of the state's most historic vineyards shows chai spice, blueberry, olallieberry juice and a touch of juniper on the nose. The palate is a bit less complex, offering herbal notes of oregano and licorice that pop out of joyous notes of plum.

About the Winery

Through four generations, the Terlatos have brought the world’s finest wines to the American table as importers, marketers and vintners. Rather than focusing on a single grape or place, Tony Terlato and his family have assembled an all-star team of winemakers with the tools to create best-in-class wines from iconic appellations – to capture “magic in a glass,” as Tony says. These wines reflect the family’s highest values, and their vision of all that can be realized from soil, grape and commitment.
