The Mila Grenache is an interesting red blend of two distinct Grenache noir grapes–West Paso Robles and Edna Valley. Spiced with a touch of cold and warm climate Syrah. The cuvee is named after one of Sofia’s beautiful daughters. The 2018 was a slow and cool ripening vintage. Grenache generally offers a medium color red with a concentrated nose of black and red cherry fruit jam, black pepper and minty spice. On the palate presents sweet black cherry balanced with dark plum skin, dark berries and delicate but rich tannins of sweet tobacco notes with a touch of pepper on the finish. Concentrated tannins and full midpalate bestow this youthful Grenache blend to be a long cellaring potential and age worthiness for over a decade.

Blended from two of the Rhone's most famous grape varietals that are lusciously fruity yet full bodied. Ignition offers the two distinctive Rhône varietals of Grenache and Syrah from West Paso Robles, Edna Valley and Pismo Beach AVAs. Like most wines inspired from famed Chateau Neuf du Pape, this blend showcases Grenache grape characteristics of generous fruit with full body, bringing notes of soy sauce, black fig and chocolate. The eco-rich Syrah sourced from warmer and cool climate adds dark fruit, spices and minerality with hints of blueberry, black pepper and refreshing acidity coming from the crisp coast of Spanish Spring Vineyard. A robust blend that is enticing with the structure and tannin to age over a decade or drink now!

A beautiful blush color – this refined wine slowly reveals itself with velvety texture and mouth-filling flavors. It opens with warm aromatics of rose petals, a hint of strawberry, ripe
peaches, plums and traces of red candy. On the palate, delicate entry of seamless tannin, the wine continues with flavors of fresh yellow peach accented by bright acidity and creamy texture accompanied by very soft tannin driven by the vineyard proximity to the ocean.

Superb blend of 2 Bordeaux varietals – Merlot from dry farmed Zaynte Vineyards in Santa Cruz Mountains and silky Cabernet Sauvignon from Bates Ranch, showcasing the finest
coastal vineyards fruit. Luxurious milky dark chocolate, soy sauce, teriyaki, black cherry, vanilla, black walnut, roasted and fresh hazelnut. The wine is dense, creamy, very extracted and soft with an amazingly long finish. Prevalent tannins from French oak still
firm and complex. This wine benefits from cellaring for over 10 years but worthy to enjoy now.

A hidden vineyard near the town of Aptos, a mere 4.5 miles from the Pacific makes the soil a deep Colluvial fan of sand & calcareous marine deposits with excellent drainage. Exchange of fog/sun ensures proper wine respiration & very even ripening. Maritime climate necessitates extended hang time. Aroma is simply divine of mulberry, violet liqueur and crushed seashell. Flavors of Italian plum, black tea and dried porcini which makes this wine so concentrated and ready to be enjoyed.

rich and smooth, with notes of strawberry, plum, roasted pepper, vanilla and caramel along with savory flavors make it ideal food pairing wine
Named after winemaker Sofia's son, this blend has concentrated nose powerfully reminiscent of Syrah and the Northern Rhone, with notes of black pepper, black fig, dark chocolate, teriyaki, black olive and dry plum. On the palate, meaty and juicy with flavors of marinade, raspberry, toasted oak and white pepper. The mouth feel is long with supple tannins of black fruit and spice. Delicious now but with the concentration and extract to age for up to a decade.
