When to Drink list

Optimal drinking times for our wines are very subjective. We like to think that our wines are ready to drink upon release, but that they will also evolve and mature for many years if properly stored. As guidelines for our customers who wish to plan their cellars, here are our best suggestions of when our different releases will be at their peak. As a general statement, within a vintage we suggest drinking in this order: Willamette Valley, Zenith, Sunny Mt., Estate, Shea, Reserve, Family Club Blends, Claudia's Choice and Marcile Lorraine.
