  1. Localism Kerner Mokelumne Glen Vineyard 2018

    Localism Kerner Mokelumne Glen Vineyard 2018

    Coombsville, Napa winery gets this unusual German varietal from the Mokelumne Glen Vineyard in Lodi. The wine is aged in all stainless steel to keep the aromatics fresh. The nose is floral with citrus notes of tangerine, lemon and lime. On the palate it opens to crisp apples and pears with a refreshing granite-like minerality. Quite rich and round on the palate, yet the finish remains crisp and concise. Only 80 cases made. Learn More
  2. Anthill Farms Comptche Ridge Pinot Noir Mendocino County 2016

    Anthill Farms Comptche Ridge Pinot Noir Mendocino County 2016

    Anthill Farms are one of our favorite new Pinot producers, making an exciting range of single-vineyard wines from Sonoma and Mendocino. Comptche Ridge is just inland on the cool northern Mendocino coast, planted primarily to the Swan clone. This is a compelling expression of California Pinot, intense, complex, deep, and perfumed with aromas of wild berries, roses, herbs, and spices, with great acidity and smooth tannins. Scintillating.

  3. Gro Chardonnay "Ruhl Vineyard" Mt. Veeder 2017

    Gro Chardonnay "Ruhl Vineyard" Mt. Veeder 2017

    This is good, big, rich California Chardonnay. From Ruhl Vineyard on Mt. Veeder whose aspect faces in three different directions to capture the cooling effect of San Pablo Bay but also the sunshine of Napa Valley. Aged in 15% new French oak for one year with lees ageing – but no MLF to keep the wine’s freshness. Tropical aromas of banana, mango, and melon, as well as perfume and white flowers, with cream and biscuit from the lees, and a lingering, grainy, spicy finish. Learn More
  4. Guthrie Family "Galaxy" Carbonic Carignan 2018

    Guthrie Family "Galaxy" Carbonic Carignan 2018

    Notes from the winemaker: Put on your high tops, grab your Walkman and chill this bottle of Galaxy. This wine is made in a true carbonic style. Individual enzymatic fermentation of every single berry on the cluster. After three weeks of being sealed up in the egg we then pressed to old French barrels. Once the wine was pressed it went through traditional fermentation of the sugars via naturel yeast. Learn More
  5. Joseph Phelps Insignia Napa 2015

    Joseph Phelps Insignia Napa 2015

    I don’t think we need to take many words to introduce this wine. This is Insignia. The vintage is made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Verdot and 2 % Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. The fruit on this is exceptional with hints of blackberry pie filling, oak notes, and black pepper. A very fruit driven wine, but the herbs, cassis, eucalyptus and cedar-box notes provide a pleasant contrast. A Napa Legend. Learn More
  6. Quintessa Red Wine Napa 2016

    Quintessa Red Wine Napa 2016

    $195.00 (NET)
    This is as classic of a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon as one will find. Blackberry, plum, dusty tannins from oak aging and some herbs. Further flavors of leather, earth, and a long balanced finish. The fruit is ripe, but it is almost coy as some of the earthy vineyard notes take center-stage. The 2016 vintage was stellar and this has been getting great reviews from some of the major wine publications. Truly a classic expression of everything Napa has to offer. Learn More
  7. Promontory Red Wine Napa Valley 2013 Magnum OWC

    Promontory Red Wine Napa Valley 2013 Magnum OWC

    $1,800.00 (NET)
    "The best wine so far (although I suspect the 2015 may ultimately enter the picture as well) is the nearly perfect 2013 Promontory Estate. It is simply richer and fuller, with greater integration of tannin, and tastes spectacular. With an opaque, dense purple color and notes of graphite, wet rocks, blackberry and blueberry fruit, some charcoal, and again, loads of spice and loamy soil nuances, the wine has great intensity, a full-bodied texture, and finely grained, sweet tannin. This is a stunner and again, accessible, but its best days are probably a good decade away, as this could very well turn out to be a 40- to 50-year wine. This 80-acre estate with 35 acres of vineyards high in the Mayacamas Mountains south of the Harlan Estate is another Cabernet Sauvignon project from Bill Harlan. It is hard to think of anything in Napa Valley as unexplored, pure wilderness, but Promontory Estate qualifies. Drink through 2066."(RP) (10/2016) Learn More
  8. Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2018

    Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2018

    The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc are mainly sourced from east Rutherford which is home to old clones of musqué and semillon. The other vines that contribute to the blend come from Calistoga. Fermentation was 67% French oak, 29% stainless steel and 4% concrete eggs. After fermentation the wine was aged on its lees with daily or weekly batonage. Flavors of kaffir lime, lychee, a limestone-like minerality and there is a richness from the oak to balance the intense acidity. Learn More
  9. Guthrie Family "Archival" Petite Sirah 2016

    Guthrie Family "Archival" Petite Sirah 2016

    Notes from the winemaker: It’s not every day you find a wine with crispy pulled pork and cracked white pepper on the nose. But then we aren’t an every-day kind of winery. When treated with a gentle hand, the elegant and delicate flavors of Petite Sirah expose themselves on the palate. Grainy tannins make it chewy and moreish while the acidity keeps it fresh, bright and great for pairing with food. We suggest drinking this wine while listing to Santigold. Learn More
  10. Mauritson Dry Creek Zinfandel 2016

    Mauritson Dry Creek Zinfandel 2016

    The Mauritson family has been farming in Dry Creek since 1868 and the family has a wealth of knowledge about the intracacies of growing Zinfandel. Don’t get them started about homogenious ripening! The wine exudes mocha and blackberry notes that border on pie filling, yet it’s complimented by earthy notes of herbs, black pepper and fig. A dollop of 5% Petite Sirah gives the wine a little backbone and depth. A perfectly balanced Zinfandel. Learn More
