é of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that are great summer wines. It also includes one of our favorite Pinot Noirs, a smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, and a cool climate style Syrah and Zinfandel.
Flight 2: Pinot Noirs Only - Love Pinot Noirs? We do too! Try 6 different Pinot Noirs from 5 different Corralitos and Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards. One is made exclusively from a single Swan clone with bright red cherry fruit, our estate Pinot Noir is made from a unique blend of our favorite Pinot Noir clones, 2 vintages from famed Muns Vineyard and one made from Monterey.
Flight 3: Try our most popular wine, Cabernet Franc, fruity and well balanced, typically only available in blends. Also try a smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, a Syrah from famed Lester Vineyard, Zinfandel from 100+ year old vines, a Petite Sirah and a Montepulciano.
Taste the difference between chardonnays that are stainless steel fermented, lightly oaked and ones made in a non-oak based breathable tank. None are buttery, sorry, we promise! Taste a Rose of Pinot Noir and a Rose of Cabernet Franc.
Our tastings are now available to be shipped to 39 states! For shipping, it's best to order by the Noon PDT the Tuesday before the tasting and use UPS Next Day or 2 Day Delivery. We provide FREE Local delivery from Santa Cruz north to Redwood City.
