  1. Holus Bolus "Franc de Pied" Syrah Santa Rita Hills 2016

    Holus Bolus "Franc de Pied" Syrah Santa Rita Hills 2016

    $35.00
    From the warmer, eastern edge of Santa Rita Hills and vines grown from budwood brought in from Côte-Rôtie. This is a classy, elegant Syrah, which combines the fruitiness of California with the restraint of the northern Rhône. Ripe blackberries on the nose as well as rose petals, black pepper, and licorice lead into a palate with fresh acidity and grainy, gripping tannins. This wine shows both the serious and giving sides of Syrah. Learn More
  2. Cafe Society Red Blend Santa Barbara 2017

    Cafe Society Red Blend Santa Barbara 2017

    $23.00
    43% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache, 23% Syrah, from vineyards around Santa Barbara. We immediately fell for this wine even before we saw the price point. It has such an attractive, irresistible, perfumed nose of raspberry, red cherry, blackberry, and bramble, with a slight earthiness, before going into a palate with gently grainy tannins, a light peppery spice, and fresh acidity. A wine easy enough to drink on its own and complex enough to pair with red meat. Learn More
  3. Le P'tit Paysan "Le P"tit Pape" 2015

    Le P'tit Paysan "Le P"tit Pape" 2015

    $22.00
    65% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre, 2% Counoise. Ian Brand has just been named winemaker of the year by San Francisco Chronicle due to his commitment to making quality wine at affordable prices. This Rhône blend is a great example of just that – very approachable with lots of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and licorice aromas all held together and given extra complexity by a firm tannic grip. Punches well above its price point. Learn More
  4. Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2016

    Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2016

    $35.00
    From the son of acclaimed producer Alain Graillot, Maxime. All the fruit (from 35-year-old vines) is destemmed, spending one year in old oak with a touch of new. This is an appealing, pretty, fruit-forward Crozes with aromas of violets, plump blackberry, plum, licorice, and chocolate followed by a tighter palate with grainy tannins and high acidity. An accomplished, balanced, and restrained wine. Learn More
  5. Kamara Pure "Nimbus Russus" Thessaloniki PGI 2015

    Kamara Pure "Nimbus Russus" Thessaloniki PGI 2015

    $30.00
    35% Xinomavro, 35% Merlot, 30% Syrah. Natural, biodynamic, family producer determined to make wines as “pure” an expression of the land as possible. That certainly comes through in the wine, as the first impression is the purity of the red fruit aromas which lead into a palate with grainy tannins, great grip, and overall mouthfeel that’s chewy, long, and balanced, finished off with aromas of tar and sweet spice. For the doubters, a very strong argument for both natural and Greek wine. Learn More
  6. Sexton Vivier "California Dessert Wine" 2015

    Sexton Vivier "California Dessert Wine" 2015

    $35.00
    Stéphane Vivier is originally from Burgundy, but his grandmother (still alive at 98) is from Cognac, where she sips each evening on a small glass of the local liqueur, Pineau de Charentes. This is Stéphane’s California take: Merlot and Syrah grape must fortified with brandy made from Chardonnay before fermentation begins for a delicious, sweet, and very fresh drink with mirabelle plum, fig, and spice aromas and a gently mouthcoating feel. Perfect in Kir Royale. Learn More
  7. Benevolent Neglect Whole Cluster Syrah 2016

    Benevolent Neglect Whole Cluster Syrah 2016

    $50.00
    Benevolent Neglect are two winemaking friends who make some of our favorite small-scale wines. They’re not afraid to experiment: in 2016 they made two Syrahs from the same vineyard (Los Madres in Carneros), one whole-cluster fermentation and the other not. The whole-cluster won the day for us, as it’s so smooth, pure, and linear, with aromas of blackberry, mint, umami, spice, and has firm tannins that hold the fine structure together and a long, concentrated finish.

  8. Domaine des Pallieres "Les Racines" Gigondas 2015

    Domaine des Pallieres "Les Racines" Gigondas 2015

    $36.00
    80% Grenache, 8% Syrah, 7% Cinsault, 5% Clairette. Historic Gigondas property that had fallen into disrepair but was bought and revived by the Brunier brothers (Vieux Télégraphe) and Kermit Lynch. From 65-year-old vines surrounding the winery, the wine has an extremely attractive nose of roses, raspberry, red cherry, plum, vanilla, clove, and licorice with a tannic, gloriously crunchy, mouthcoating palate. Concentrated and ageworthy. Learn More
  9. Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve 2016

    Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve 2016

    $53.00
    80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre. From old vines on limestone-sand soils, aged in foudres and demi-muids, this is perfumed and extremely attractive with aromas of herbs, garrigue, spice, and crunchy red fruits. Its full style is well balanced by grainy tannins and a concentrated, intense structure. Approachable and drinkable now, with a good decade of ageing potential yet. Learn More
  10. Jolie Laide North Coast Syrah 2016

    Jolie Laide North Coast Syrah 2016

    $38.00
    New wine from Jolie Laide, blending mostly two Yorkville Highlands vineyards, both of them high elevation. Hawks Butte adds density and fruit, while Halcon a brooding earthiness. Fermented whole cluster for fresh, floral, herbaceous aromas with blackberry and black cherry, drying tannins, a chocolate core, and high acidity. All old, neutral oak for ten months – this is about the purity of the fruit. Learn More
