  1. Broc Nero d'Avola Mendocino 2017

    Broc Nero d'Avola Mendocino 2017

    It’s unusual to find the Sicilian grape Nero d’Avola here in California – from Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino near Ukiah, this is the only example we’ve ever seen! The wine undergoes 10% carbonic maceration and is aged in clay vessels. The red fruit aromas are really pure, with juicy, crunchy plums, raspberries, and strawberries, followed by a soft, fresh palate that makes this wine almost too easy to drink. Calls out for pizza.

  2. Sine Qua Non Entre Chien et Loup 2015

    Sine Qua Non Entre Chien et Loup 2015

    $200.00 (NET)
    42% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne, 7% Viognier, 7 % Petit Manseng, 4% Marsanne. 20% raisied in concrete eggs, 20% in stainless steel. As good, if not better than the 2014 white, the 2015 Entre Chien et Loup (which translates to between a dog and wolf, but is a French saying referring to dusk/twilight) checks in as a blend of 44% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne, 8% Petite Manseng and 8% Viognier, raised in a combination of concrete eggs, stainless steel, used barrels and new French oak (varying sizes). The Chardonnay dominates on the nose which shows terrific buttered citrus, stone fruits, marzipan and brioche nuances. These carry over to the palate where the wine is full-bodied, thrillingly concentrated and textured, with bright, even racy acidity. Give this beauty a few years, and it’s going to keep for two decades or more. Learn More
