This youthful fresh wine makes a very elegant impression. Greenish-yellow to bright yellow color with delicate fruity and floral aromas together with mature apples prevalent in the bouquet. Its lively style combined with a balanced acidity accompanies this wine through its harmonious finish.

Handpicked, gentle pressing, alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel, 6 months storage on fine lees.
2018 Lapis Luna Zinfandel
80% Zinfandel & 20% Sangiovese
North Coast AVA, California
Fruity, smooth and delicious, this medium-bodied wine overflows with blueberry, blackberry and raspberry flavors that are very fresh and almost as charming as the engraved-style label. Made with an addition of 20% Sangiovese, the wine is still low in tannins and smooth in texture. Barrel aged 10 months in 10% new French and American oak.
2016 Gehricke Cabernet Sauvignon
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, & 2% Petite Verdot
Knights Valley, Sonoma, California
From the first swirl, the aromas are tantalizing. A big spicy opening leads to white pepper, licorice, pencil lead shavings and paprika sustained by a cloud of fresh blackberry juice. The flavors are complex and showcase the perfect balance of fruit and spice with blackberry juice and black licorice being the frontrunners. The wine has tenacity and verve as it bounces off the palate with great freshness. Integrated nicely with French Oak, this is a wine that will continue to age nicely, growing more complex and softening with time. Aged 18 months in French oak.
