A brilliant, light gold color in the glass, the wine exudes layers of fresh aromas; honeycrisp apple, pear, lemon crème and toasted brioche bread. The aromas ring true on the lush palate with flavors of vanilla flan, toasted almond paste and honey notes which linger through to the persistent and crisp finish. The wine is aged for 12 months with 20% of the blend aged in new French oak barrels. The remainder of the blend sees a combination of seasoned one- to two-year-old French barrels as well as stainless-steel tank (on the lees), giving the wine a beautiful creamy texture.

Our prize offering, the ultra premium Claret, sports a label that honors the first Cabernet Sauvignon blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise. Borrowing tradition of European wineries, we add gold netting to bottle to signify outstanding quality of wine.

They tilled the land, mined, built earth-movers in factories. Rooted to the ground. That was their presumed inheritance. But their dust-covered hands would clutch the throttles and triggers of the bombers sent to the Pacific. They flew the longest missions and were crowned above the jungles of Southeast Asia. They came to rule the skies, but they remained grounded all the while. They returned to the land, the Land of the Free, but, together, they always will be – the King of the Heavies.

The lesser known Cab, Cabernet Franc actually sired Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s most famously from Bordeaux. While commonly known as a blending wine during much of the Twentieth Century, it is more frequently becoming a solo act due to its plethora of floral, plum, blackberry, spice, and herb aromas and flavors.

Our Cabernet Franc is a king of the heavies. It packs a punch of flavors; it soars by itself without the need to get lost as a blend.

Not exactly characteristics you’d expect to describe one of the most sought-after and idolized women of all time. Not only that, but that’s exactly how she described herself. Add witty to her list of characteristics, because she also mused that “if you can’t handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” You were the total package, Marilyn.  High Low Winery
