2019 Reserve Malbec
Originating in France during the middle ages, its' moniker was the "Black wine of Cahors." Then in the 1780's it was renamed after viticulturalist Monsieur Malbeck due to his plantings of the grape in Bordeaux; it was not long when, due to the cooler climate of the region that Malbec fell from grace in the European market. A French botanist by the name of Michel Pouget took the vine to Argentina where the climate brought forth it's beautiful, dark, inky deliciousness.
Mourvèdre also known as Monastrell, originated in Spain and is thought to have been brought to that region by the Phoenicians over 2000 years ago. This grape is not often found as a "stand-alone" varietal, but more commonly in blends. Rich in nearly every way, this wine has much to offer: look for berry fruits and earthy minerality with very pleasing (yet austere) spice-ladened warmth.
2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Often called the "King of grapes," Cabernet Sauvignon is one the most revered of the red vinifera species. Aged 5 years in barrel, this wine is big and bold and spicy.

2013 Single Barrel #514 Cabernet Sauvignon

This limited bottling of a very special, Kentucky grown Cabernet Sauvignon is the last of its kind from the Lovers Leap Vineyards.

Drawn from a single cask unfiltered means again, only 300 bottles are produced.
