  2001 Cuvée Patrick
The nose and palate feature a combination of brighter red fruit (raspberries and strawberries) and a wisp of rose petals, along with dense, darker fruit of ripe blackberries and plums, with a touch of brown spices. The palate is moderately rich, showing good varietal character and some depth. The finish is a bit lighter, and yet, perhaps, more complex than one might expect. This wine is meant to be a good value that is easy to drink, a touch rich and complex, with good varietal character.
  2002 Cuvée Selena
The 2002 Cuvee Selena Grenache exhibits softer, dense varietal aromas, along with subtle but round fruit flavors of strawberries and raspberries. The finish has hints of minerals and a touch of spice with some lingering, almost chalky tannins. Enjoy this delicate red with pizza that is dressed in ranch sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil, artichoke hearts, bacon, Roma tomatoes, red and green onions and prosciutto.
  2003 Old Vine Zinfandel
Silver Medal - 2004 San Francisco Wine Competition. This wine is very similar to its 2001 counterpart, however, the 2003 vintage featured more accessible, richer fruit flavors with more depth.

The palate has a deep, full mouth feel featuring a rich, velvety core of dark plums and Bing cherries framed by softer peripheral tannins and peppery spices that lead to a very long, complex finish with and a touch of citrus and hints of cassis.

The palate has good length featuring blackberries and richer flavored dark stone fruit with a bit of cassis, followed by a touch of spice, warmth, and softer, chalky tannins.

Silver Medal - 2005 San Francisco Wine Competition. This wine has a fruit base that is richer and more forward than its 2001 counterpart.
