CHOCOLATE DELIGHT: A surprising indulgence, chocolate and red wine combine to make this a delightful treat. Late harvest Zinfandel sourced from sun-filled vineyards leads to a higher alcohol content in the dessert styled wine.

SAUVIGNON BLANC: Stainless steel fermentation makes this Sauvignon Blanc bright and refreshing. Aromas of tropical fruit and melons are met with flavors of lemon zest and passion fruit flavors. The natural acidity leads into a nice crisp finish.

GRANDVIEW RESERVE: This is a wine that embodies the texture and finesse that encompass the fine art of wine blending. The deep garnet color is met with aromas of dark cherry, plum and cocoa with a hint of toasted oak. The mouth feel is silky-smooth with soft, round tannins accented by a lasting vanilla finish.
