Good bold reds. Looked like a good list of library wines too, if that interests you. They have a sister (wife) winery in town as well. Cow seats are funny.

All the wines on the menu were very overpriced and only one would be one I would drink again. Not well balanced or original. The wines were just not very good...very disappointing from this wine region as we always seem to find wines we like....More

A hidden gem located in the heart of carmel by the sea, so friendly and great wines. Better yet we had the opportunity to spend time with the owner and sample some of his older vintages only a true connoisseur could appreciate. Amazing!
