Featured Wines:

Waxwing Pinot Noir Rosé – Accolades: 93 Points, Prince of Pinot. A delicate apricot color in the glass, this wine's nose is alive and sustained in the glass and offers aromas of apricot, strawberry, cherry, blood orange and a floral note. The delicious flavors of cherry, strawberry, white peach and apricot have good weight and are bright and lifted. The best domestic rosé you'll experience in quite a while.

Waxwing Flocchini Syrah – Accolades: 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast. This is a lovely, light-hearted yet complex 100% varietal wine that shows the beauty of a lighter touch and cooler climate. Cedar, herb and compost provide a wildness next to aromas of feral mushroom. Intriguing all the way around, this wine finishes in a burst of white pepper.

À la Volée Sparkling Wine – The eagerly anticipated new À la Volée sparkling wine made from Riesling grapes is crisp, fresh and terribly tasty. Winemaker Scott disgorges each bottle by hand to expel the yeast cells for a fun and unique California sparkling wine. The grapes are grown at Tondré Grapefield in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
