Figenza Mediterranean Fig Flavored VodkaA good mixologist knows that a great cocktail comes from the quality and versatility of just a few key ingredients. This is what makes Figenza the perfect complement to many classic cocktails. With its rich, distinct texture and sweet, robust flavor, Figenza is an extremely versatile vodka. Figenza is an unforgettable spirit with a unique character of its own. It works equally well as a stand-alone drink and blends perfectly with your favorite classic cocktail. The Mediterranean fig has a unique flavor all its own, and it has grown tremendously in popularity over the last several years. Whether hand-picked in Italy or lovingly grown in Greece, the fig comprises a sweet, aromatic character with a one-of-a-kind flavor that makes it unmistakable. Figenza does a remarkable job at combining this unique, flavorful fruit with the an impeccably six-times-distilled neutral spirit to reveal an aggressive, but smooth vodka with the feel of a liqueur.

Plantation Rum Three Stars White RumA large majority of rum producers offer a white rum variety. Maison Ferrand wanted to produce a white rum that would stand out from the others using rums aged and unaged and taking advantage of the exceptional talent of the House for blending cognacs. Plantation 3 Stars is a blend of rums from three islands: Trinidad (rum aged two or three years), Barbados (young rum), and Jamaica (old rum). This final blend was carefully thought out by our cellar master and each island brings its own aromatic characteristics.

Bevan Bench Vineyard Cabernet SauvignonWe got the opportunity to work with new vineyard in 2014. The Bench Vineyard, in Stags Leap, is half a mile from the Wildfoote Vineyard, but it shows more of the traditional Stags Leap flavors and textures. It has a great density to it. The weight gives it a serious quality and the fruit flavors back that up. There is a power to this wine that makes it different, almost as if we let the wine sit on the skins after fermentation had completed. This wine will improve for a decade, so you can age it while you drink its siblings.
