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.

The Conspirator takes great pride in his namesake Syrah Reserve. Even by his demanding standards, the 2015 vintage was special. The fruit was sourced from the Briarwood Vineyard, a meticulously farmed site in the Templeton Gap district of the Paso Robles AVA. The cool westside microclimate and complex soils produce fruit of remarkably high quality. A word of warning - only 50 cases were produced and The Conspirator has been spotted at The Undisclosed Location, making room in the bunker for his own private stash of this spectacular Syrah. Conspiring can be thirsty work. We think now would be the time to secure your share, before it's too late.

Our 2015 Estate Sangiovese Reserve is both delicious and food friendly. Although slightly lighter in body than the 2014 vintage, the flavors and aromas are balanced and enticing. The nose is spicy. The palate reveals anise and cherry flavors. A mouth-watering pairing for a wide range of dishes and delightful to swirl and savor all on its own. With only 50 cases produced, it is almost as elusive as the Illuminati – the secret society for which it was named. The Illuminati, literally translated, means “the enlightened ones”. Pour a glass. Become enlightened.
