We would like to think that the measures being taken will result in an abatement of this sad crisis and we keep our prayers for those most threatened by this unfortunate disease.
* All gathering places including the outdoor pavilion and picnic areas are closed. Groups of more than 10 people are not allowed as we adhere to guidance on how to limit the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Featuring upfront aromas of baked apple, peach cobbler, and orange blossom. balanced by some tropical fruit notes of mango and papaya.
2017 MERLOT RESERVE
The bright, red fruit aspects of cherries,raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and cassis are well integrated with some quieter elements of dried fruits
It is a richly complex wine with many layers. There is a balance between the dark fruits of figs and dates along with the red fruits of raspberry and dark cherry. There are additionally some nice hints of blueberry, rhubarb and cassis
