Blair Estate Pinot Gris Meador Estate Vineyard 2013
Alc: 13.9% | Type/Varietal: Pinot Gris - White
The result is a limited release of only 218 cases that is everything a Pinot Gris should be: lush tropical fruit flavors allied to bright, refreshing acidity. Made in a drier, "Alsatian style," it is delicious now but will also reward patient cellaring over the next two to three years.

Van Ardi Estate Red 2015
Alc: 13% | Type/Varietal: - Red Blend
(40% Areni, 35% Kakhet, 25% Haghtanak) The wine begins with a vivid ruby hue, accompanied by notes of various fruity and floral aromas, transforming into lush coffee and chocolate aromas. A richly structured, classy palate that yields a smooth elegant and lingering finish. A wine born to be aged.
90 pts - Wine Enthusiast, Best Buy "This blend of three indigenous grapes from Armenia is deep garnet in color, with aromas of raspberry, blueberry and violet. It is pleasantly tart on the palate, offering flavors of cherry, cranberry, chocolate and pencil lead. Very smooth in the mouth, it has a finish that leaves a lasting hint of smokiness."

Van Ardi Rosé 2016
Alc: 12.5% | Type/Varietal: - Rosé
(40% Kakhet, 30% Areni, 30% Syrah) Smooth and lush to start. It has a touch of sweetness contrasted harmoniously with crisp minerality. Notes of red berries and dried fruits give it fresh, fruity aromatics of strawberry and peach, while maintaining a cool and well-structured experience.
