It's no secret that the predominant varietal of Espionage is Malbec. For the 2016 vintage however, we surreptitiously upped the level of intrigue by introducing a little Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot to the blend. The result is deep, dark and delicious - like a secret that's just too good to keep. With only 100 cases produced, you may want to grab as many bottles as you can and head for the safe house. No need to await further instructions - you know what to do.

Defection is not for the faint of heart. Neither is our bold, fruit-forward single vineyard Zinfandel Reserve. If you have an allegiance to other varietals, this powerful character may convince you to switch sides. We produced just 50 cases so if you would like extra bottles, timely action would be advisable.
The last time we unleashed The Assassin was the 2013 vintage and now it's back with a vengance. Dont be afraid to invite The Assassin into your cellar. Age this wine for as long as you see fit. Once captive, this brooding beast will be ready whenever called upon. You, on the other hand, may not have the luxury of time. In order to capture this lethally delicious Cabernet Sauvignon based blend, you must act swiftly and decisively. With only 35 cases produced, The Assassin will disappear into the night before you know it.

The so called "Deep State" has been in the news a great deal recently. While we take no official position on the existence of this shadowy entity, we wholeheartedly believe that our new Bordeaux style blend will put you into a deep state - of bliss. The blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot will almost certainly distract you from the political turmoil and controversy, even if it's just for as long as the bottle lasts. Upon further consideration, you may want to order a few extra bottles to get you through the next news cycle.
