This Reserve bottling was created by allowing our favorite barrels of the vintage to age an additional 8 months in predominately new French Oak. The result is a wine that displays an elegant and balanced integration of fruit and spice.
A fruit forward and full-bodied Red Blend named after our Winery Dog, Rolo the Chocolate Lab. Rolo's Red is a proprietary Red Blend named after our chocolate Labrador, Rolo, who quickly grew from a wee pup to a great, grinning, whale of a Lab. Rolo has been with us since the beginning of our winemaking adventures, and is turning 11 years old this year! Each year the blend is comprised of different grapes, but always we strive to make it fruit forward, with juicy dark berry flavors, big tannins, and notes of chocolate-of course! This year the blend is comprised of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc.
Two distinct grape varietals define the 2017 vintage of the Duel. Merlot offers waves of dark fruit, chocolate, and plum. Petite Verdot delivers black cherry, violet and sage.
Sip wine, save Dogs!! Named after our very own Rescue dog and tasting room mainstay, this 100% Malbec form Santa Barbara County helps support our local animal recue shelter DAWG. John Conway's beloved rescue dog Ringo is the inspiration behind this project. Ringo's Rescue Red is a wine dedicated to all rescue animals, especially the rescue dogs in our community, who bring love and joy to their adopted homes every day. Proceeds from every bottle are donated to support DAWG and the incredible work they do.
