Introducing our New Ridgeback Wines from South Africa 

Ridgeback Cabernet Franc
Upfront blackcurrant with hints of green peppercorn and black olive cradled by elegant, ripe tannin and oak spice on the long mineral finish.

Ridgeback Chenin Blanc
Rich, upfront notes of pineapple and sweet orange blossom evolve to a fresh, juicy mid-palate with hints of lemon zest and white peach lingering on the finish.

Lion Hound Cabernet Sauvignon 
Upfront notes of mulberry, mint and plum with a hint of leather and wood spice run seamlessly onto a juicy mid-palate and long finish.

Lion Hound White
An upfront, tropical array of juicy white peach, pineapple and orange blossom with a hint of citrus.

Lion Hound Red
An intense, juicy red blend of dark cherries, plum and licorice with a hint of cigar box and wood spice. The creamy mid-palate evolves to a long, savory finish.
