    Sweet, ripe plum and wild berry fruit is supple and harmonious, with a polished texture and light cedary oak showing on the finish. The tannins are ripe and firm.

  • With vineyards located in Oakville and Yountville, this family-owned and operated winery has piqued the interest of many a Cab lover with both its "Estate" bottling and the "Two Rivers Vineyard." The winery's name pays respect to two Arabian performance horses - Tamborina and Bayamo - that the owners (the Waittes) owned and raced. The wines are made by Thomas Brown, who has previous experience with Turley Wine Cellars, Outpost, Schrader, and Chiarello wines. His bottlings of Cabernet, Merlot, and Chardonnay emphasize the vineyards' cool climate and have a finessed power that provides a compelling experience.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
