Black violet color. Curious aromas of boysenberry kombucha, cucumber, lilac, and heirloom apple vinaigrette with a slightly chewy, vibrant, fruity medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length blueberry crumble bar, fruit leather, and apple balsamic vinaigrette finish with moderate oak flavor. A distinctive Petite Sirah that will pique the interest of lovers of the varietal.

Golden yellow color. Fruity aromas and flavors of peach jam, wildflower honey, white grape jelly, sweet pea blossom, tangerine zest, and bubble gum with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium body and a smooth, refreshing, medium-length finish displaying notes of cantaloupe. A dry and refreshing white with sticky-sweet aromatics; sip this ice cold with classic American fare or try it in spritzy summer cocktails.
