Product Sheets
2008 Sangiovese
El Dorado
The Chianti of IMC
Bright Ruby, fresh fruit, almost cherry like

Sauv Blanc on steroids
Crisp, citrusy, a bit earthy and definitely "full mouth"
2008 Chardonnay
U.C.Davis
Semi-oaked Chard
Cleaner, lighter and brighter than a typical FULLOAK chard
2007 Syrah
Lovall Valley
Our own Shiraz!
Brisk, super floral, balances cheeses and cream sauces
2007 Syrah
Amador
Smokey Deep Complex
Easily compliments steaks, BBQ - very assertive without any funkiness
2007 SyrBec®
California
Bob's BBQ Wine
Bright, fruity, but with that Malbec complexity that goes SO well with BBQ
2007 Primitivo
Lovall Valley
Step-sister of Zinfandel
Assertive, complex, almost cedar and chocolate with blackberry jam
2007 Merlot
Lovall Valley
A most drinkable Merlot
Dark, chocolaty, but with the signature 'crystaline' Merlot finish
MerBec®
California
Our version of St. Emilion
Complex, full flavored Merlot, balanced with Malbec to perfection
2007 Cabernet Franc
Lodi
Wildly Deep & Rich
For the complex-big wine lover. There's no going back...
2007 Bodaeceia
Robert J. Lynch
Reserve
Stunning Bordeaux Composition
A Cabernet fiend's cab. But with 5 other components each of which adds more, more & more!
2007 Vin do Iberica
Irish Monkey
Noble Varietals from Iberian Peninsula
Centered on Touriga Nacional, flowery, aromatic, mid-tannin, emminently drinkable
2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Dixon Ranch - Carneros
Robert J. Lynch
A celebration of the deep peppery, tannic flavors from which California got its red-wine reputation. The cooler growing conditions highlight deep color and complexity. A perfect Cab-lover's Cab.
2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Tudal Ranch - Napa
Robert J. Lynch
The opposite of the Dixon! This Cab is lighter, more mid-tone, and will reward the careful cellar over the next 5-10 years. Today, it drinks beautifully with almost every braised dish and deep vegetarian casserole.
2008 Tempranillo-Tannat
Lodi
Soft, elegant, elusive, ... evolving in the glass over the course of the pour from a shy wine to a bold cup of great character. It is hard to go wrong with pairing this and food. Spicey yet cautious!
