I really like this winery and the wines they produce. The wines are certified 100% Organic and the winery is located in the Carmel Valley, and is definitely recommended if you are in the area. The Tasting Room is well laid out - there is room for about 10 people to taste and there is also a lot of retail shopping that you can do in the winery. Some of the sauces are excellent! The service was very good and the staff are very knowledgeable about the wines and the winery.

2001 Cabernet Franc ($34)Rating: C-D
Dec 29th, 2006
      Best Value Wine - December, 2006

Very good wine - tastes better than many cabernet sauvignons. A good balance with a long finish and plenty of flavour.

Apr 17th, 2006
Light but drinkable, no fruit and a soft finish
2001 Cachagua Cabernet Sauvignon ($14)Rating: B
Jan 11th, 2008
Fruity but a little harsh on the palate and fades into a medium tannic finish. May be past its best already
2002 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon ($40)Rating: B
Sep 17th, 2005
83% Cab, 17% Merlot. This wine had just been released 3 days earlier and I found it too young to give an accurate rating. It needs time in the bottle
2000 Meritage "Celebration" ($70)Rating: A-B
Sep 17th, 2005
62% Cab, 30% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc. This wine had won a lot of awards and I was excited to taste it. But I was very disappointed with the lack of fruit. Later I was told that the bottle I tasted had been open all day which would explain the poor tasting
2003 Pinot Noir ($35)Rating: A-B
Sep 17th, 2005
100% Pinot Noir. Very light with little finish. Not good value
