2015 The Damned Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Named from the departure from Napa Valley cabernet, The Damned showcases 100% cabernet sauvignon from cool sites of Sonoma County that we've sourced from for many years. The mountainside fruit at elevations of 1000 feet and above makes for an intensely flavorful wine with wild black currant and cherry fruits, dark chocolate, savory herbs and a distinctive minerality born of volcanic soils.


2015 The Hour Red Blend 750ml

Our winemakers were compelled into crafting this special blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Merlot from their favorite vineyard blocks, letting these varieties "have their hour". This Act reveals a generous and compelling wine with a deep flavor profile of blackberry, plum, mocha and exotic spices. Soft and supple tannins give way to a full bodied yet elegant wine with excellent length.


2015 The Lure Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

We've been producing this wine for several years now, showcasing the best barrels of mountainside fruit sourced from some of the most highly respected vineyard sites and regions in the Napa Valley. This Act has lured in a cult-like following with its seductive barrel spices, dark chocolate and thrilling finish. Back by popular demand, this beastly cabernet is for those who like their cabernet big and bold.


2015 The Pact Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The 2015 Pact is a full-bodied, rich wine beginning with notes of dried savory herbs and freshly roasted coffee. Vibrant flavors of black cherry and red plum are balanced by spice notes of star anise, dark chocolate, cedar and slate. Plush tannins and a velvety soft texture lead to a complex and lingering finish. 

“Fantastic blueberry and blackberry aromas. Black licorice and lead pencil. Graphite. Full body with very tight and focused tannins. A precise center palate that seduces with every sip. Love the walnuts, dark chocolate and dark fruit on the finish…” 97 Points, James Suckling
