Organically farmed for over thirty-five years, the Estate produces wines of uncommon balance and finesse. All fruit for the four limited production wines is grown in our Chiles Valley vineyard.

Terzetto is a unique proprietary blend of co-fermented Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, while Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, combined in the Bordeaux style, create the luscious Gemini.

Connoisseurs' Guide"Even with its high fraction of Merlot, this is still a fairly tight, moderately tannic and slow-to-unfold wine, but, if it is less than beguiling right now, it has a solid sense of Cabernet fruit running its length, and its teasing hints of complexity auger well for the future. Give it three or four years of age, and expect it to improve for twice as long." -, Aug 08The 2005 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon has 18% Merlot blended in to soften the tannins for palate feel and add desirable aromas for complexity. All grapes were harvested at their peak maturity. The wine was barrel aged in 50% new French oak from Treuil cooperage. The wine is deep garnet in color, varietally true to type in aroma, and well balanced on the palate. This wine has a long future, but can be enjoyed today for it's vibrancy of flavor.
