The Hinkle’s seriously began to investigate the possibility of farming premium wine grapes. Searching for vineyard property, the Hinkle’s looked at over two hundred parcels of potential vineyard land before discovering the perfect spot in the spring of 1996.

  • Rio Seco Malbec Reserve 2006

    Snoothrank:

    90/100 points. Rich red color and strong bouquet of berries with almost a hint cotton candy. A rich and fruity onset that envelops the mouth nicely. There is a strong flavor of ripe cherries. Perfect oaking for this varietal. Great tannins provide a long and strong finish. This wine is a GREAT buy at $10-14. Read More
