Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, the nose shows cassis, red plum, and blackberry before opening up to deep tobacco, cedar, vanilla, green peppercorn spice, and smoky mineral notes.
Our Sonoma County Chardonnay is a vibrant, engaging wine that bursts with mouth-watering fruit and lively acid. Flavors of apple, pear, citrus and ripe apricot engage the palate, while subtle, creamy hints of butter and meringue unfold. The final presentation is a luscious finish, leaving the palate refreshed and wanting more. We suggest pairing with a roasted Dijon chicken or crab cakes.
Straight from the barrel to the bottle at 108 to 114 proof, Maker’s Mark® Cask Strength retains the signature front-of-the-palate flavors of Maker’s Mark® – while amping up the oak, caramel, vanilla and spice to create a remarkable new bourbon.
Meiomi — Pinot Noir

Deep, rich garnet color. The wine opens up with aromas of ripe berries, fresh cranberry, candy apple and malted vanilla, some of which carries through to the palate. There’s a hint of Granny Smith apple on first sip that beautifully balances out the rich cream soda and cherry cola notes. It is an extremely layered wine, both in structure and flavor, with a slight earthiness and sweet oak on the finish. The wine almost contradicts itself, managing to display freshness and maturity all at the same time, which is achieved through careful blending.
Utilizing all five Bordeaux grape varieties, we achieve depth and complexity creating a wine with bold character and a distinct flavor profile. The art of this blend is represented in the The Mariner's old world packaging. The label illustration is reflective of the life of a Mariner - one who directs and navigated his ship. This analogy symbolizes the same navigation that a winemaker goes through when crafting his blend.
