Our Wines

Terroir Collection is an extremely limited-production series of wines offered exclusively to members. Different from VGS, Terroir Collection wines are sourced from specific Appellations we feel possess a unique character and distinctive personality that demand to be bottled independently revealing the pure expression of its terroir!

2017
Terroir Collection GSC

Fountaingrove District

The 2017 GSC is comprised of 55% Syrah, 44% Grenache and 1% Cinsault, this wine resembles the prettiest wines from the Southern Rhone.  While light on the palate, the wine is very complex.  Tart cranberry and pomegranate are what first show themself, followed by warm spices like star anise and wild fennel  With a beautifully vibrancy, stunning acidity and a balance of fruit and tannins, this wine will continue gain layers of complexity for the next 7-10 years.

Terroir Collection Cabernet Sauvignon

Oakville

Fall 2020 Release-Members Only

We are thrilled to introduce our very first Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of the Napa Valley, Oakville.  The wine is absolutely tremendous and will take you back to the early days of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  This Cabernet is not shy and makes its presence known with a briary perfume and secondary aromas such as black olive, wet leather and camphor.  On the palate, the wine is voluptuous without being overly rich.  This wine was a great backbone of acidity and integrated tannins which will allow you to cellar it for 15 years.
