Ojai Syrah - Loads of gamey, tobacco inflected flavor and tractor beam drinkability, with aromas that show incense smoke and pepper galore.
Thrive Pinot Grigio -Crisp and lively with notes of melon, green apple and a subtle hint of honey.
Y3 Sauvignon Blanc - The mouth-watering finish is crisp and long, its white peach and lemon zest notes echoing through to the next sip.
Freakshow Chardonnay - Mouthwatering aromas of juicy mango, summer stone fruit, cinnamon spice and buttered popcorn. Enchanting flavors of nectarine, stewed Golden Delicious apples, butterscotch, hickory and a hint of vanilla and coconut on the finish.
Meiomi Pinot Noir - The wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes.
Maddalena Zinfandel - Flavors of ripe red fruit, including bright raspberry and spicy black plum. Barrel-aging contributes notes of cocoa and oak spice. The mouth is round with a rich, silky texture that is framed by soft tannins.
Freakshow Cabernet - Bing cherry, toasted French vanilla bean and a hint of juniper berry on the nose. In the palate oak and fruit flavors are complemented with refined tannins and flavors of dark ripe plums, mission figs and toasted legumes.
Browns of the Month - available by the glass or flight
Weller Antique 107 - Honey, sweetness and vanilla cut with dark fruits, apples and caramel.
Weller 12 Year - Notes of vanilla, orange peel and chocolate - maybe even a little pecan maple syrup. Yum!
Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year - The nose has Madagascar vanilla, vine-ripened fruits, honey, and wheat. On the palate, you'll find maple sugar, butterscotch, nutmeg, and Red Hots. Dried fruits and sweet caramel continue through the decently long finish.
