Sakura 2023 Pinot Blanc

$35.00 / 750 mL Bottle

A lightly lemon-hued white wine with pear and papaya on the nose. A touch of citrus blossom, reminiscent of a walk through a California fruit orchard, rounds out the aroma profile. On the palate, dried tree fruit flavors — dried apricot and dried apple — mingle with the fresh fruits of the bouquet. With a long and zingy finish, this is a fabulous sipping wine that will have you dreaming of Spring blossoms.

Sakura 2021 Tempranillo

$60.00 / 750 mL Bottle

The deep garnet-red of this wine promises to deliver luscious ripe berry and earthy characteristics. That promise is kept as aromas of blackberries, roses, cinnamon, and redwood steer your imagination to a lazy stroll down a sun-dappled pathway. Plum and pepper unfold on the palate, followed by notes of toasted vanilla. After a boldly-structured midpalate, a soft finish prepares you for another sip or perfectly paired bite.

Aphelion 2018 Tempranillo

$50.00 / 750 mL Bottle

Aphelion 2018 Tempranillo

This is a dark, savory wine with aromas and flavors of black salted plum, dried Mission fig, black pepper, tar & leather, and cured black olive. Similar to an old-world Tempranillo, it has a pleasant midpalate experience — smokey and luscious with just enough of a bittersweet finish to make it intriguing. The moderate weight and delicate dusting of tannin lends to an easy-drinking and refined result.

Aphelion 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

$50.00 / 750 mL Bottle

Aphelion 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

A sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon with a developed bouquet of soy sauce, dried blackcurrant, blackberry reduction, and black licorice, along with a hint of black olive and dried red chili. A wine made for a steak dinner, its full body speaks of blackberry compote with a dash of cedar and sage. There is a touch of smoke, but the use of oak is nice and even-handed. It finishes with supple, mature tannin and a palate-cleansing sensation that begs to be followed with another bite of steak.

Aphelion Multi-Vintage Blend Cabernet Sauvignon

$45.00 / 750 mL Bottle

Aphelion Multi-Vintage Blend Cabernet Sauvignon

A youthful and vibrant wine with aromas of fresh red currant, plum puree, vanilla, forest floor, and new leather. The mouthfeel carries you from Bing cherries, pomegranate, and raspberry jam to redwood and hibiscus. Its moderate weight and lean structure begins in the midpalate, creating a refreshing Cabernet Sauvignon experience. This is a great food wine which can also be enjoyed on its own.

250 cases made.

Aphelion 2013 Late Harvest Tempranillo

$35.00 / 375 mL Bottle

Aphelion 2013 Late Harvest Tempranillo

This delicately textured and medium-bodied wine makes the perfect complement to a lightly sweet dessert or stands well all on its own. With notes of dried black fruits, this decadent late harvest wine brings to mind a moonlit patio in Spain. An array of aromas and flavors, including dried fig, plum, allspice, and Luxardo cherry, come together in complex harmony. The ideal way to end an evening with friends.
