Pale straw yellow in color. The nose presents pleasing aromas of yellow fruit, white flowers and orange blossoms. Full in flavor the 2011 Pinot Grigio has a soft and savory palate that finishes with lively acidity. - WineryOrigin: Sicilia IGTBlend: 100% Pinot GrigioAlcohol: 12%

The Antinori family's Santa Cristina estate is located in eastern Tuscany, near the cities of Siena and Cortona. The warm climate here is ideal for international grapes like Syrah and Merlot. Le Maestrelle is a premium quality wine that blends 60% Sangiovese with 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah. The wine is aged in both small oak barrels and stainless steel tanks to give a balance of bright fruit, suppleness and complexity.

A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbott's estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality

Even if red wine is not your speed, give our Ménage à Trois Red a try. This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. Ménage à Trois Red brings together three strange bedfellows.On top weve got Zinfandel, a saucy tease that brings blackberry and raspberry jam to the relationship. Merlot, with its generous mouth feel and red fruits, fits perfectly in the middle. The rich flavors and firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon make it the ideal. - Winery

Grape variety: 100% ShirazVinification: To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we source wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.Tasting Notes: Rich and dense with complex aromas of blackberries, licorice and vanilla. Tannins are ripe and delicate.Food Pairings: A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses. - Winery
