Very small production winery with only 800 cases of handcrafted Cabernet. We had a hard time finding the winery and must have driven past it a couple of times, but eventually we did and we were very happy we did. The winery is very small (40 acre property) and we would not have even recognised that it was a winery - originally we thought we were driving into someone's house (well I suppose we were!!!). Pete, the owner, was really nice and met us out at the tasting room / barrel room. Originally his son was supposed to meet us, but he bailed to watch the football so Pete was kind enough to show us around. Unfortunately it was freezing and the tasting was outside. We were freezing and the wine was freezing!! I could not get a good reading on the wine as the glass almost stuck to my lips so I bought a bottle to taste in the warmth later on. From what we could tell it seemed pretty good. Super friendly, rustic location. Would be great on a warm summer's day!

Drinkable, with good fruit and balance, but hard to properly taste in the cold temperature. It was cold that Shane had the following conversation with the owner: "What does the wine sell for ?", "What", "The bottle, how much ?", "What", "How much is the wine ?", "I have no idea what you are talking about".
