David Huse retired in 1999 and soon found that he needed something to occupy his time. He had always enjoyed wine and so he began helping out at another winery. After helping there, David was hooked. In 2000 he decided to start a small winery to keep him busy. The first vintage consisted of 120 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2001, production increased, doubling the Cabernet and adding the same amount of Merlot. The 2000 Cabernet was bottled, and David began to realize they needed their own space. In August 2002, remodeling began at the current site. In September, the first crush occurred at the winery, and everything was moved in. Production increased during this time, as David’s son, Matt, was taking over as winemaker. While adding a small amount of Syrah, they made approximately 1450 cases.

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage.

  • Ararat Five Star Armenian Brandy

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this on a lark...figuring since it was imported all way from Armenia (Turkey &/or Russia) it must be pretty good. Then I learned it was CHURCHILL'S favorite brand....my my. Really does smell like kind of a very profound candy, and goes down very smooth. One would not think it was 40% alcohol. This is indeed a very pleasant brandy--g... Read More

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley.
