Roussanne, Anna's Vineyard 2016 | $30.40/members
91 points, Doug Wilder - Purely Domestic Wine Review 
"The nose is a taffy-like creamy peach, lemon and vanilla with notes of gardenia blossom. The palate is a full buttercream, tropical banana on entry with a richly textured and concentrated silkiness. Drink 2017 – 2019."

Anna's Red, Anna's Vineyard 2015 - $36.00/members
Aromas of plum and blackberry compote, roasting meat juices, wild thyme, and wet earth. Flavors of dried cranberries, beef jerky, and herbs-de-Provence. 

Cabernet Sauvignon, Barrel Select 2015 - $48/members
The wine demonstrates the character of its mountain heritage showing a bold fruit profile, a sense of tightly wound inner energy translated into flavor extracts of blackberries, blueberries, elements of cedar-cigar-box with its fine maduro tobacco leaf and hints of cocoa powder in the resonant finish. Made for the long haul, its youthful grip and density beg for food pairings, additional bottle age will add a mellow complexity, lasting through 2025.

Pinot Noir HMR 2016 - $48.00/members
92 points, Doug Wilder - Purely Domestic Wine Review 
The wine possesses an initial gossamer silkiness morphing into flavors of black cherry, raspberry tea, and forest floor dusted with whorls of spicy potpourri. It will outgrow its current adolescence in a few months, best enjoyed from late 2017 through 2023.
