'Daughter' in Italian. This Petit Verdot & Merlot blend is named after my daughters, Raegan and Scarlett. Our third release of this wine, the 2018 is simply stunning! Dark to the rim. The nose of the wine is loaded, ironically, with dried figs and mixed florals. The palate is saturated in freshly harvested black and blue fruits, is fat and juicy, and has a long, silky finish. It's an absolutely delightful wine that is drinking fantastically today and will lay down for a decade if desired.

Handsome and well-structured, with expressive black cherry, rose petal and savory spice accents that build toward fine-grained tannins. Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2029. 865 cases made.

Fruit-forward aromas of plum, cherry, smoke, black licorice, graphite and cedar are followed by tart cranberry fruit flavors and firm tannins. Orange rind and cherry notes persist on the finish. It's all about structure right now. But the fruit underneath that structure is swoonworthy. Best after 2026.

The 2018 Figlia checks in as a mix of Merlot and Petit Verdot that spent 23 months in new and neutral oak. This rich, full-bodied, tannic red from Figgins has terrific purity in its darker fruits, notes of chocolate, leafy herbs, and graphite, a dense mid-palate, and a great finish. It needs to be forgotten for a good 3-5 years, but it's a beauty in the making.

A blend of Petit Verdot and Merlot, the 2018 Figlia displays a deep ruby core with a soft magenta rim. The nose is dense, bold and firm with aromas of crème de cassis, Chambord and blackcurrants, followed by soft elements of river rock, plum compote and dusty purple flowers that sashay out of the glass. Full-bodied, the mouthfeel is still very tight, showing youthful tannins and good bones to last more than a decade. Ending with a persistently long and evolving finish, the Figlia will remain food-friendly until 2032. The wine rested for almost two years in a mix of new and used French oak barrels. Just over 10,000 bottles were filled.
