Products



  "Ryan Oaks" Zinfandel
Medium-bodied and crisp, delicately floral with plum and spice. This non-malolactic wine was made from grapes grown in the Shenandoah Vally, Amador County. It slept for 10 months in new and seasoned (2 to 4-yr old) French oak prior to bottling. It is fruit-forward, well-balanced and exceptionally good with BBQ!
  "Tim & Edie's Vineyard" Zinfandel
This wine was handcrafted and aged for at least 16 months in French oak barrels. It was produced from mountain fruit grown in Amador County's rolling Shenandoah Valley. The wine is dry and full-bodied with the classic, jammy fruit and stalwart tannins of the appellation. It is non-malolactic and will improve with age for many years.
  California Cabernet-Shiraz
This Australian-style blend was handcrafted and aged for at least 16 months in French oak barrels. It is a marriage of our hearty El Dorado Cabernet Sauvignon and our spicy Monterey Shiraz. The wine has full body, abundant fruit and a balanced structure. It is non-malolactic and is likely to improve with age for 20 or more years.

  Monterey Chardonnay, Barrel
This wine was handcrafted and aged for 8 months in French oak barrels. It was produced from vines grown one mountain range away from the Pacific ocean where they are protected from coastal fog, yet benefit from the ocean's cooling effect. The wine is dry and full-bodied, with abundant fruit and subtle oak flavors. It is ready to drink now but can benefit from cellaring.
