Lucia Gary's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
Crushed violets and wild strawberries. Possessing a deep red color and a beautiful nose, the Lucia Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir is also accented with vibrant boysenberry, allspice, and forest floor notes. Gentle, elegant tannins have become a common thread of running through this Garys' Vineyard wine and contribute to its approachable character and versatility with foods. Selective amounts of whole cluster and 100% native fermentation add greater depth and complexity to the long texture. Enjoy now or age in the cellar for a decade.

Antinori Solaia 2010Winemaker Notes : A deep ruby red in color, the wine was also endowed with expressive varietal aromas and sweet notes of red berry fruit and spices. The long, cool growing season was perceptible in the full ripeness of flavor, the ample and supple structure, and the elegance and admirable balance. The sustained finish and aftertaste echoed the fragrance first felt on the nose. Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc
Roar Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay 2014Winery Notes: Patience is rewarded with our 2014 Soberanes Chardonnay. Shy, restrained fruit notes and a viscous minerality mingle on the nose and palate, blossoming over time with tropical fruit and floral aromatics. On the palate cream pineapple and lychee mix with melon and are lifted by lemon zest, straw, and crisp shale giving way to lovely perfumed jasmine on the finish.
Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay Double Magnum 2016 3LWinemaker Notes: Enticing aromas of vanilla, melon and mango are layered with apricot, creme brulee, butter and a slight minerality. Those scents are echoed as flavors on the creamy, rich palate, along with peach, pie crust and baking spices. The long, smooth finish is marked by mouthwatering acidity.
San Felice Chianti Classico 2015Winemaker Notes : Produced entirely from native varieties, predominantly Sangiovese with addition of Colorino and Pugnitello. It is a medium-bodied Chianti Classico with a distinguished personality and notable for its elegance. Traditional fermentation practices are employed with average-length maceration, followed by 12 months maturation in large Slovenian oak casks. Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino, 10% Pugnitello
Broadside Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2016Winery Notes: The 2016 Paso Robles Cab highlights the strong vintage with plenty of dark berry focused fruit, earthy notes and toasty mocha/caramel oak.
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas 2016Winemaker Notes : The wine shows intense blackberry and fig fruit with licorice, violets, and charcoal on the finish. It is remarkably fresh and finessed given the sun and warmth of the southern Rhône. The unique micro-climate combined with 60-year-old vines and traditional winemaking make Château de Saint Cosme Gigondas the benchmark wine of the appellation. Blend: 70% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 1% Cinsault
Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay Magnum 2017 1.5LWinemaker Notes : Enticing aromas of ripe apple, bright citrus and melon are layered with creme brulee, baking spices and a touch of butter. Vibrant flavors of tropical fruit, baked apple, citrus and white peach meld with vanilla, baking spices and toasted nuts on the creamy, smooth palate. The finish is juicy with mouthwatering acidity that makes you crave another sip.
Domaine des Bosquets La Colline Gigondas 2016Winery Notes: The inaugural vintage of La Colline was in 2013, not an auspicious year for Grenache, but this site planned high in the Dentelles in 1975 weathered the inclement Spring weather well. The soils here are rocky, clay limestone with a high chalk content making for wines that are rich with exceedingly fine tannins.
Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs 2016Deep purple color. Appealing aromas of black pepper, cassis, and licorice. Layered plum, blackberry fruit on the palate; medium/full-bodied, with silky tannins. Notes of chapparal and mocha on the finish.
Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016Winery Notes: Forward-thinking Burgundy fanatic Vincent Avril has turned Clos des Papes into one of the most highly regarded estates in the appellation. Encompassing 35ha of vines spread accross 24 different parcels, making wine here is not without its complications! Vincent achieves such high standards thanks to a meticulous approach to making wine, adopting practices including severe pruning, de budding, organic viticulture, severe harvest selections, and gentle winemaking. Vincent puts all of his energies in making just the one red cuvee, the result is a beautifully balanced, very intense but not at all heavy Chateauneuf du Pape of the highest quality. Grapes are harvested when ripe at tiny average yields, rarely more than 25hl/ha, and upon reception into the gravity-orientated winery are lightly crushed before a 3 week maceration and fermentation. The wines are then reared for 12 months in 50hl oak foudres. The final blend usually comprises 65% Grenache 20% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah with the remainder made up of the less known varieties of Chateauneuf.
Foxen Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015Winery Note: Julia’s Vineyard is located in the heart of the Santa Maria Bench and is one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Santa Barbara Valley. We have been sourcing a small amount of Pommard Clone fruit from this vineyard since 1996. Our Julia’s displays subtle notes of spice and sweet leather to complement its cherry flavors and velvety texture.
J Vineyards & Winery California Cuvee NVWinery Note: The inaugural release of our vibrant and approachable California Cuvée opens with a pop of tart pineapple and orange blossom on the wonderfully aromatic nose. The palate is lively and rich with layered notes of Asian pear and honeysuckle, overlaying hints of fresh mandarin peel and marzipan before a zesty, focused finish.
