Silver Medal - 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
GOLD MEDAL - 2017 Craft Competition International Awards
Defection is not for the faint of heart. Neither is this massive, bold, fruit-forward zin. This is our first release of The Defector since the award winning 2010 vintage but this time we made a mere 50 cases. If you have an allegiance to other varietals, this powerful character may convince you to switch sides.
Silver Medal - 2018 Monterey International Wine Competition
With only 60 cases produced, our 2014 Estate Sangiovese is almost as exclusive and elusive as the Illuminati - the secret society for which it was named. The Illuminati, literally translated, means "the enlightened ones". We invite you to become enlightened.
90 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast
GOLD MEDAL, 90 Points - 2017 World Wine Championships
At the lowest, coolest part of the Hidden Vineyard, often shrouded in morning fog is our tiny Pinot Noir block. The minimally irrigated vines produce only miniscule yields. The 2013 harvest gave us just enough fruit to produce only 30 cases of our Reserve Pinot Noir. Enjoy now or save it for a foggy day.
