  Cabernet Franc - "Moonlight"
The color is a beautifully dark garnet and the nose is an amazing array of black fruits, currants, spice, oak and leather. The mouthfeel is full and rich loaded with flavors of black cherry and blackberry, allspice and leather framed by firm tannins and oak. This wine will age well for several years. This wine has been blended with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for added complexity. It was aged a full three years in primarily French oak of which 50% was new. This is our first Cabernet Franc bottling since the 1995 vintage and is a natural to be paired with smoked duck, frilled lamb or pasta. Decant for several hours prior to trying this wine.
  Cabernet Sauvignon - "Nebula"
The color is a handsome dark red and the nose is delightfully complex with aromas of black cherry, cassis and earthiness mingling with a mocha oaky essence. The mouthfeel is rich and full with flavors of black cherry, black olive, minerals and leather cascading down on the palate. The finish displays some pretty firm tannins that will soften with age. Given proper aging this is our finest Cabernet Sauvignon "Nebula" to date. This wine is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon from two vineyards in the Paso Robles AVA. The remaining 6% is split evenly with Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot which were blended to enhance the color and tannin structure. This Cabernet was bottled without fining or filtering. Enjoy!
  Cabernet Sauvignon - Estate
Pour into your glass and gaze in wonder at this beautiful dark red wine. Swirl and breathe in the interesting mélange of Bing cherry, plum, minerals and mocha found in the aromas. Take a sip. The mouthfeel is vast and sumptuous followed by concentrated flavors of sweet cherry, blackberry, blueberry, minerals and dried herbs. All intertwined with a generous (but not overdone) backbone of oak. Everything is in balance--fruit, oak, acidity and tannins--and will meld and age gracefully for at least the next 3 - 7 years. A 20% blending of Estate Merlot was added to soften and round-out the mid-palette. Both components were aged for 36 months in primarily American (75%) oak, a third of which were new. This is our first-ever bottling of Estate Cabernet. The vines were 6 years old for this vintage and are already showing great maturity. The Midnight Estate Vineyard is a west-side, hilly, rocky, low-yield vineyard which produces exceptionally concentrated fruit. Try this wine and taste how you will be rewarded by hiding a few bottles of this Cabernet in you cellar for several years!
  Cabernet Sauvignon "Nebula"
Wonderfully rich and supple texture, flavors of black cherry, currant and vanilla are accented by minerals and anise. Flavors of mocha and spice linger well into the finish. A little tight right now, this wine should be decanted to be enjoyed in 2006.
  Chardonnay Equinox
The color is a beautifully bright straw color and the nose is full of tropical fruit, ginger spice and roasted vanilla bean. The mouthfeel is luxurious and rich and a complex array of tropical fruit, minerals, green apples and vanilla cascade about the palate. The finish is long with lingering flavors of creamy vanilla and minerals intermingling well into the next sip.
  Estate Merlot
Our 2003 Estate Merlot is a beautiful deep dark red with a wonderful bouquet of ripe plum and fig with toasty vanilla undertones. The mouthfeel is full and creamy with ripe flavors of plum and black cherry intermingling with cocoa nut and a minerally spiciness. This all combines in an amazingly complex and concentrated wine finishing within a framework of toasty oak and firm acidity. Our best Merlot to date. This is 100% Merlot made from grapes grown on the Midnight Estate Vineyard. Cropped at 1.5 tons per acre in 2001, the resulting wine is a very ripe and extracted style of Merlot. It shows Firmer acidity than most Merlots and is accented by generous American oak tannins that give this wine tremendous ageability for many years. Decant for several hours prior to trying this wine. A great wine to sip and study!
  Full Moon Red Wine
The color is a beautiful garnet and the nose is wonderfully fruity with ripe red raspberry and fresh strawberry with hints of earth and minerals. The mouthfeel is light and smooth with strawberry cream flavors mingling with spice, raspberry and plum. A very easy drinker. This wine is a fruity, easy drinking blend of Syrah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is intended to be consumed young and enjoyed with just about any accompaniment. A great wine to sip on while preparing dinner.
  Gemini Reserve Red Wine
Deep, dark purple, almost black, coats the glass while swirling. The nose is huge and full of black fruit, spice, mocha and leather. The mouthfeel is luxurious, and complex flavors of black cherry, roasted vanilla bean, minerals and cassis cascade through the impossibly long finish, where accents of vanilla and mocha beg you to take another sip. The Gemini is our proprietary blend of Zinfandel and Syrah. A very ripe styled wine, the Syrah portion is from 2 different vineyards located in the Paso Robles appellation as are the 2 Zinfandels. Ample French oak gives a vanillan firmness. This wine will to continue to improve through the year 2011.
  Late Harvest Zinfandel Estate - Paso Robles
This yummy treat has a dark garnet red color almost seeming black. The nose is an interesting array of black fruit, peach cobbler, minerals and spice. The mouthfeel is full with flavors of sweet black cherry, cinnamon, currants, ginger spice and intermingling minerals. The finish is long and tempts you to take another sip. This is a mouth filling dessert wine that will pair extremely well with a wide variety of desserts. Chocolate is a natural pairing but it also goes well with any fruit based dessert. The fruit is 100% Zinfandel grown on the Midnight Estate Vineyard and was harvested at 29.5° brix.
  Mare Nectaris
The color is a deep, dark ruby and the nose is full of blackberry, allspice, anise and leather. It has a full, rich mouthfeel. Flavors of black cherry, minerals, ginger, mild crushed white pepper, black raspberry and a gentle smoky oak essence are framed with firm, well balanced acidity. Rich and complex, this wine will age well and will pair with a variety of robust dishes.
  NV Gemini Port
The color is astonishingly dark and the nose is beautifully aromatic with ultra ripe fruit, candied apricots and caramel. The mouthfeel is huge and smooth with flavors of blueberries, dates, cassis and raisins blending with chocolate, caramel, raspberry and allspice to create a complex experience. Sweet spicy oak lingers well into the next sip. A natural for blueberry cheesecake, dark chocolate cakes, or a fine cigar!
  Pinot Noir "Aquarius" - Paso Robles
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir from the Latchford Ranch on the west side of Paso Robles growing region. It contains 3 different clones of this varietal; 777, 115, Pommard. Beautifully dark in color, this Pinot has vibrant flavors of blackberry, roasted vanilla bean and all-spice. The fruity juice and French oak combine for a full rich mouthfeel.
  Sangiovese Starlight EBA
The color is a robust brick red and the nose is full of aromas of cranberry and red raspberry, with traces of an herbal earthiness. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full and flavors of strawberry and and red raspberry are wrapped around minerals and dried herbs. The finish is framed by well balanced tannins and acidity. A natural for hearty Italian fare.
  Syrah - "Nocturne" - Paso Robles
Your eyes are delighted with the dark and beautiful color of this wine. The nose explodes with smoky, spicy black cherry, raspberry, and cola. The mouthfeel is creamy with a rich array of flavors including raspberry, all-spice, earth, smoke and leather. The finish lingers from sip to sip. Already smooth tannins balance well with the supple acidity. This wine is 100% Syrah grown on three very different vineyards located around Paso Robles. One vineyard contributes cooler weather attributes such as minerals and red fruit. Another contributes the firm tannins and earthiness. The third adds the warmer weather flavors of blueberry and ripe raspberry. The wine was aged in primarily French oak barrels for 26 months and rough-filtered for clarity prior to bottling. Enjoy now thru 2008.
  Zinfandel "Estate" - Midnight Estate
Incredibly dark and concentrated, in fact, most peoples' initial response is "WOW". The mouth is enormous and flavors of raspberry, sour cherry, minerals, dried herbs and white pepper pound the palate into near submission. The glycerin coats the glass like purple paint and the finish is framed by well-balanced tannins and acidity. For big Zin lovers only!
