2020 Estate Cab Franc
14.3% Alcohol ~ $32

SILVER El Dorado County Wine Competition
SILVER Foothills Wine Competition

Fair Play
Step aside, the “Big Papa” of wines is here. As one of the oldest cultivated grape varieties in the world, Cabernet Franc is the parent to Cabernet Sauvignon (the other is Sauvignon Blanc). If you have been overlooking Cabernet Franc, it’s time to take another look. It is so much more than a blending grape, as its easy-drinking structure and versatile ability to pair with many foods make it deserving of individual attention. This vintage is a blend of two vineyards here in Fair Play, one of them being our Estate. Aromas of sweet strawberry, raspberry, and baking spices. On the palate you’ll taste bold red fruit and a soft mouthfeel with underlying flavors of chocolate, vanilla, and marshmallow from French Oak aging.

2020 Barbera
13.6% Alcohol ~ $34

SILVER California State Fair Wine Competition

Sierra Foothills
Barbera originated in Northern Italy where it is regarded as the “wine of the people.” In the early 1970’s, Barbera was first planted here in the Sierra Foothills where its ever-growing popularity speaks to its virtues and character. Today Barbera is a top variety of the region, and is often considered an “everyday red,” as its versatility and drinkability make it a perfect wine for any occasion. This 2021 is a classic expression of Barbera. Scents of clove, cinnamon, pepper, and sandalwood precede flavors of warm spice. Flavors of dark cherry and crème brûlée with underlying flavors of coconut, hazelnut and a vanilla finish with a soft mouthfeel and a lingering finish that invites another sip.
