NEW! Mystic

Sweetness: Off Dry Alcohol: 13% Oak: Medium Body: Full

A captivating blend that reveals intense fruity aromas on opening. This full bodied red offers rich flavours of black cherry, mocha, spice and vanilla, and closes with a velvety, smooth finish.

Amarone Style

Alcohol: 14% Oak: Yes Body: Full

Amarone is a legendary, assertive wine of the Valpolicella area in Italy. Unique and distinctive character comes from the addition of dried grapes during fermentation. The resulting depth is likened to Port or Late Harvest wines but without the sweetness. The wine has a foundation of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes from the Veneto region. The must is fermented on crushed varietal grapes from over 10 pounds of virgin fruit plus 4 pounds of whole red wine grapes which have been sun-dried to concentrated perfection. A double dose of untoasted oak is used to balance the wine and, with aging, tame the natural tannins. The wine is full-bodied, deep garnet colour and richly dry. Notes of plum, sour cherry, raspberry and vanilla gradually marry with anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather and fig tones that develop with age. Long, lingering finish and alcohol that should exceed 15%. Try to give this wine at least 1 year of aging to enjoy the truly remarkable Amarone experience.

Barbera Italy

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

Barbera has been the most popular grape in the Piedmont region in Northwest Italy for centuries. With new vineyard care, especially around Alba and Asti, it has emerged as a top ranked wine which readily withstands comparison to noble Nebbiolo (Barolo) but does not require the extended ageing that Nebbiolo demands. Deep ruby, medium-bodied, and fruity in its youth, it ages to impressive depth and elegance. The fruit in our 2 year old samples remains as fresh and inviting as it was at 6 months. The oak and tannins have mellowed to a soft and well-rounded impression that lifts the fruit to a most attractive level.

Cabernet Merlot Walla Walla Washington

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

The Walla Walla appellation is very special. Its outstanding reds were what first put Washington on the world wine map. The wines are now grouped with world standard reds from Bordeaux, Napa and Sonoma. Walla Walla Cabernets and Merlots consistently rank in top 10 lists of the finest from the Americas. Our Bare Ridge offering is the classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet and Merlot but typifies the unique Walla Walla profile of intense fruit and spice flavours and aromatics. Notes of currant, cherry and plum are backed by hints of black pepper, anise and coffee. Two–stage French and Hungarian oaking nicely mellows the tannins and adds a suggestion of toastiness.

Cabernet Red Mountain Washington

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Full

Distinctive chalkiness which combines with the powerful, dark fruit qualities create the big, chewy mouth-feel that is a clear signature of Red Mountain Cabernet. Another distinction is a hint of orange peel or Grand Marnier-like aromatics and flavours. Together these two traits make Red Mountain Cabernet immediately recognizable, highly prized, and much sought after. A wine for your best cuts of beef or lamb and luckiest friends.

Cabernet Shiraz Yakima Valley Washington

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

Yakima Cabernet and Syrah (Shiraz) are often compared to the great wines of Australia, but they are also recognized as having their own, perhaps more sophisticated charm. We agree and suggest that if you enjoy the big, fruity reds from down-under, you will want to discover why there is so much buzz about the powerhouse reds grown in Yakima. A rush of blackberry, plum, cherry and candied orange fragrances followed by flavours of currant, fig, cedar and spice intertwined with a beautiful balance of toasted oaks. Rich, elegant finish. Powerful flavours of fruit start to come together after 2-3 months aging. After 6-12 months the tannins soften and the wine’s elegant charm really starts to reveal itself. Can be cellared for more than 2 years.

Carménère Chile

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

Multi-flavoured Carmenère from Colchagua shows best when processed with extended oak contact. Again we utilize our breakthrough, two-stage oaking system. Hungarian oak shavings are introduced at the start of fermentation, then lightly toasted Hungarian oak cubes are used for further extraction during the postfermentation stage. The oaks together add surprisingly soft tannins, subtle toast, and vanilla, providing a terrific backdrop to the aromas and flavours of blackberry, black cherry, tropical fruit, and spice from the grapes. With age, notes of coffee, mocha, and tobacco can be expected along with a mineral tang that forms as part of the lengthy finish. The wine is medium to full-bodied with bright ruby colour.

Château du Pays

Alcohol: 13% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

In the style of fine wines of the southern Rhône Valley. This wine derives its complex character from Syrah, Carignan and Grenache grapes. Fermented o Syrah and Grenache crushed grapes. Rich flavours suggestive of cherry, raspberry, blackberry and plum combine with notes of pepper and chocolate. The finish shows a subtle herbaceous note and a suggestion of cedar and violets. Enjoyable after 3 months but does show its harmonious best after 9 months.

Merlot Yakima Valley Washington

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

Bold, yet elegant. This Yakima Valley Merlot is big and full with up-front waves of raspberry, blackberry and plum. Subtle notes of cedar and mocha follow the fruit. Over time, the flavours harmonize while the select oak contributes a tempering vanilla note and establishes a sumptuous combination of textures and well defined structure. Dark, rich and intense, it is a wine worthy of aging; will continue to improve for at least 2 years in the bottle.

Malbec Argentina

Alcohol: 13% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

The definitive star of Argentina. Robert Parker Jr., the world’s foremost wine guru has stated “(….Argentinean Malbec’s) place in the pantheon of Noble wines will be guaranteed”. Our Malbec is distinguished by its dark, dense structure, full, rounded mouth-feel, prominent, lush flavours of ripe cherry, black​ currant and black berry, subtle notes of clove, vanilla and caramel with background suggestions of earthiness. The bright, vibrant edge is beautifully​ counter-balanced by our 2-stage Hungarian oak process.

Shiraz Australia

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Full

The wine shows a deep, crimson colour with purple undertones. The up-front aromatics reflect the typical dark fruit notes of blackberry, cherry, and plum, complimented by restrained black pepper which should become more pronounced with age. In the background are subtle layers of toast and vanilla from the oak. The aromas continue to the palate creating a soft, rounded expression of the fruits, spice, and oak. Tannins are in gentle harmony with the overall impression and create a well defined, yet delicate frame for the wine. This Shiraz should be a very good match for a wide range of foods - steak, braised lamb shanks, pizza, chili con carne, pasta with tomato-based sauces.

Shiraz South Africa

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Full

This wine shows heightened layers of blackberry, boysenberry, fig, and plum, followed by notes of cocoa, chocolate, and coffee. It subtly shows the trademark black pepper note common to all Syrah and Shiraz. Oak contributes vanilla and toast while harmonizing the many flavours within the wine. A subtle hint of mineral remains in the background then accompanies the fruit through the long finish. Will pair wonderfully with all of your best red meat meals. Sure to impress your guests.

Rosso Fortissimo

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Full

Our original Crushed Grape Pack wine. Super-Tuscan styled wine vinted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and other native Italian varieties. Fermented on Yakima crushed Merlot grapes. A big, full-bodied wine with solid structure and bold fruit notes. Complex cassis, plum and cherry notes balance the bold tannins. French and American oaks contribute toasty vanilla and greater depth in this intense wine. Like all Crushed Grape Pack wines, a minimum of 6 months aging is required to begin to see harmony develop. A year is better and 2 years yields a very special wine for your enjoyment.

Zinfandel Lodi California

Alcohol: 13.5% Oak: Yes Body: Med-Full

Direct from the vineyard in Lodi where sandy, clay loam soil, hot days, cool nights and 35 year old vines combine to produce unique grapes bursting with complex, concentrated flavours. Exhibits silken layers of multidimensional delight. It starts with an up-front core of blackberry and dark cherry aromas, followed by suggestions of blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and dried plum. Undertones are of chocolate, almond and exotic spice. Ends with an unmistakable black pepper sensation. Enjoy your first bottles after 2-3 months when the powerful fruit flavours dominate. However, do cellar some for months, or years, to experience a more refined balance and the vast array of characteristics which time integrates into harmonized waves of complexity.
