    From ungrafted vines planted in the 1920s and 1940s on the Stampede vineyard in Lodi. This is quite a serious expression of Zinfandel, demonstrating the heights it can reach when it’s made well. The nose is floral and pretty, with inviting ripe strawberry aromas and a hint of jam, leading on to a grainy, spicy palate filled out with a creamy vanilla mouthfeel. Very classy and concentrated expression of Zinfandel. Learn More
  3. Jean-Maurice Raffault Clos d'Isore Chinon 2017

    Jean-Maurice Raffault Clos d'Isore Chinon 2017

    $20.00
    The 3 hectare vineyard was fully planted in 1938 with a selection massale, which is largely intact to this day. The soil is a mix of clay and limestone and the exposition of the sloping vineyard is north-west. The Clos d’Isore is aged for 18 months in 1 to 5 year old barriques on its fine lees and malolactic fermentation takes place in cask. The fruit on this is only a touch green while showcasing the ripeness of the current vintages. Learn More

    Paradigm Merlot Oakville Napa Valley 2016

    $53.00
    Heidi Barrett’s been making wine for Paradigm from the outset in the early 1990s, making them one of Napa’s most reliable top producers. This Merlot demonstrates that the grape can make wine every bit as good as Cab, with aromas of plums, smoke, black pepper, oak, and tarragon leading into a palate that’s invitingly soft but with firm tannins and a complex structure. Smooth and very drinkable. Learn More
  8. Idlewild "The Bird" Red 2018

    Idlewild "The Bird" Red 2018

    $23.00
    60% Dolcetto, 35% Barbera, 5% Nebbiolo. This “house red” is an homage to the light, fresh, food-friendly wines drunk in Italy. Fermentation starts with carbonic maceration for a smooth fruitiness, then the grapes are trodden by foot for a regular fermentation leading to a savory backbone. Subtle, complex aromas of wild strawberries, black cherries, dried herbs, and roses are finished with great acidity and firm tannins. Fun with a serious edge. Learn More
  9. Walter Hansel Russian River Valley Estate Pinot Noir 2017

    Walter Hansel Russian River Valley Estate Pinot Noir 2017

    $42.00
    Steve Hansel never had much interest in following his Father Walter’s passion in wine until he met Tom Rochioli and tasted the potential of grapes from the area. Using cuttings from the Rochioli vineyard + Joseph Swan clone to plant his Estate vineyard just west of Santa Rosa. Smell and taste ripe dark cherry and raspberry fruit, cherry cola, cloves, allspice, mushroom, there’s a hint of oak in the background, bright acid and a medium to full body. Delightful. Learn More

    $85.00 (NET)
    This is the first year that the family has worked with this vineyard and they could not contain their excitement to release it.

The depth is highlighted by star anise and crushed herbs before a white pepper note graces the lingering finish. It's impeccably balanced and ready do drink now or in 20 years. Learn More
