Wines From Two Old Hags

  • McManis - Cabernet Sauvignon (California) - Richness, depth and generosity are good traits of this full-bodied but smooth-textured Cabernet. Light oak accents don't cover up the ripe, juicy, almost jammy blackberry and cherry flavors that fill the mouth and linger on the finish. It's an all-around crowd pleaser that has everything in balance.
  • Honoro Vera - Garnacha (Spain) - Fresh, Red Fruit, Plum, Medium-bodied intense aromas of ripe red fruits, balsamic sensations and spicy notes lead to fruity, floral flavors. Fresh and easy to drink, this Garnacha produces the pleasant sensation of baked fruit cake on the palate. 100% Garnacha
  • Lucille - Merlot (California) - This medium-bodied, fruit-forward Merlot displays a deep ruby color with fragrant aromas of black cherry and spring violet accented by pleasing flavors of freshly picked plums, boysenberry and light toasty oak
  • Materra - Sauvignon Blanc (Nappa,California) - On the nose, distinct aromas of pineapple, lemon vest, citrus rind, and river rock flood the senses. On the palate, a bright tartness hits your tongue with lingering flavors of apricot and white peach ending with a light effervesces. We would recommend fish dishes with our Sauvignon Blanc created with herbs such as parsley, mint, basil, tarragon, and dill.
  • Raywood - Chardonnay (Central Coast,California)-This lush Chardonnay contains tropical hints of melon and peaches giving way to a warm and mild oak finish. Enjoy with light meat, a nice array of cheeses and fruits or a fresh fish entrée, or just sip a glass as you watch the sun set over your favorite view.

Wines From LakeRidge Winery

  • Lakeridge Cabernet Sauvignon - Lakeridge Winery`s Cabernet Sauvignon encompasses a full bodied finish with rich deep color and a hint of oak – when served with rich marbled meats and Italian dishes this wine pairs perfectly.
  • Lakeridge Chardonnay - Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards’ Chardonnay offers a classically smooth and refreshing medium bodied white wine that is intended to pair with chicken, seafood or sharp cheese, or just sipping and relaxing.
  • Lakeridge Sunblush - Rich in aroma and fruit flavor, this light crisp and refreshing wine embodies the radiant hue of a Florida sunset; a blend of different Muscadine grapes done in a blush style. Try it with a wide variety of finger foods, rice dishes and pasta.
  • Lakeridge Southern Red - Smooth & bursting full of fruit, this light bodied wine derives its unique flavor from the Noble variety of Muscadine grape. A true balance of aromas with a refreshing aftertaste. Serve lightly chilled with rich desserts & cheese.
  • San Sebastian Ruby Port - Fresh and delicious, this Ruby style port has a unique hint of nuttiness and finishes a little lighter on the palate. Its shorter age in oak barrels defines it as a young dessert wine.

Wines From Sip

  • Carneros Highway 12 - Pinot Noir - For this offering of Pinot, the winemaking team shows us why Carneros grapes shine. The wine shows more fruit than earth, with balanced acidity highlighting a lively mouth feel from start to finish. The strawberry and rosehips hit right at the front of the palate and glide into a bright, fruity mid-palate, making its versatility show.
  • Julia James - Pinot Noir - Full of red fruit and spice, Julia James showcases Pinot Noir’s signature silky texture and food-friendliness. Ripe red raspberry and cherry fruit meld with earth and spice notes. The acidity is balanced and the fine tannins are ripe, yielding a long, smooth finish. Julia James Pinot Noir is medium in body and meant to be enjoyed on release.
  • DueTorri - Pinot Grigio - An exquisite dry white, DueTorri Pinot Grigio is fragrant on the nose bursting with citrus fruit aromas. It is fresh on the palate with perfectly balanced acidity and minerality.
  • La Playa - Sauvignon Blanc - A delicate pale gold. On the nose, aromas of lemon, fresh pineapple with hints of lavender. It is a bright well balanced wine with a clean minerality on the finish.
  • Custard - Chardonnay - Our beautifully crafted Custard Chardonnay is rich, creamy and voluptuous on the nose featuring aromas of lemon crème brulee and graham cracker crust along with toasty almond and vanilla notes from French oak aging. This wine is marked by crisp tropical fruit and pomelo -favors. It is distinctively complex with a subtle combination of vanilla, cream and warm citrus fruit notes. This refreshing wine is a great food wine with its perfect balance of tropical crispness and creaminess to cut through rich dishes.
