2019 Cuvée Renee
On the seventh rendition of Cuvée Renee, this is a wine of balanced tropical fruit, texture, subtlety, length and zing from the love and care Kent and his team pour into it. Mostly fermented in tank, with some in barrel more like a Chardonnay and include a splash from the previous vintage (carefully raised in neutral oak for over a year) to add layering and depth not commonly found in Sauvignon Blanc.

2016 Kalen’s Big Boy Blend Syrah
Kalen’s is a “cozy sweater” kind of a Syrah and it remains one of EK’s most prominent calling cards. Absolutely stuffed with layers of fruit and lightly accented with French oak and characteristic spice, Kalen’s is undeniably compelling new-world Syrah.
