Three Sticks Price Family Estates Pinot Noir 2018Winery Notes: The Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is what we like to call our winemakers’ wine. Selecting the best grapes from each of our estate vineyards, this Pinot Noir expresses the vintage and the diversity of Sonoma Coast through Bob and Ryan’s unique lens. We highlight the strengths of vineyards such as Walala, Durell, and Gap’s Crown, leading to a cohesive and ambrosial illustration of our iconic properties. The 2018 is lively on the palate - raspberry and rhubarb compote are coupled with black cherry. A mild barrel toast complements the fruit perfectly, with a long, luscious finish.
Peay Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018Winery Notes: This wine is a stunner. I tasted all the wines at one seating and the nose on this wine stood out. All I wrote the first time was... gorgeous. Aromas of orange rind, raspberry, violets, and hints of Christmas spice leap out of the glass. I kept going back to it over the two hours I tasted and it mellowed out a bit and the aromas coalesced into a wine I could just sit and smell all day. The flavors in the mouth are consistent with the smell and the fruit components are given ballast by earth, tea, and bark notes mixed with leather and anise seed. There is notable depth of flavor which should not surprise me as many barrels that usually go in Scallop Shelf, Ama or Pomarium are in this blend as we had plenty of Pinot noir due to healthy yields. This is a very 2018 Pinot noir; it has nerve while appearing robust. The finish adds a little dried blood and iron that Burgundy lovers are familiar with in their Pinot noirs. The tannins on the finish are present but silky and will soften with a little food.
Peay Pomarium Estate Pinot Noir 2018Winery Notes: We make our Estate wines blind to production information: we don’t know the clones, or the % oak, or the % whole cluster, or anything when we taste. After we selected the final blend for the 2018 Pomarium and looked at what clones and barrels made up our favorite blend, we were a little bemused. We selected a blend made from only two clones that are always in the wine, but the other 2-3 clones that are often there to provide lift and complexity, were not. The vintage was so good for Pinot noir that the strong blocks were multi-dimensional and didn't need the “role player” clones to fill in gaps. Blending is a curious art and this type of experience keeps you humble on the difference between what you know and what you think you know. The final blend has only Dijon 667 and Calera clones of Pinot noir. As you would expect, the profile hews more to the darker fruit expression including plums and blackberry. There is depth of flavor across the mid palate—what I call density—but it is not fat or fleshy. A few anise and bark notes peek out in the finish along with some floral notes from a touch of whole cluster.
Three Sticks Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 2018Winery Notes: The Gap’s Crown Vineyard, long heralded as one of Sonoma’s premier pinot noir properties, is now gaining notoriety for its chardonnay. The 2018 vintage justifies all the hype. Shrouded in fog most of the day, with winds that cool and extend the growing season, these grapes ripen ever so slowly. On the nose, you’ll sense limestone, white flowers, and fresh morning buns. With distinctive minerality, enhanced by notes of honeysuckle, Key lime, and fresh cream, this chardonnay dances on the palate. We hope you enjoy the remarkable amplitude and depth of this heavenly wine.
Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Chardonnay 2017Winery Notes: We source the Durell Chardonnay from the oldest blocks of the vineyard in the hills above the Sonoma Valley. These elevated areas of the property create wind tunnels, lowering the temperature for developing fruit. Typical of Durell Chardonnay, this wine bursts with lemon meringue and orange blossom, with notes of white tea and honey. Our 2017 Durell Chardonnay marks 20 years since we purchased Durell, the birthplace of Price Family Vineyards and Estates.

Typically it is made with three consecutive vintages and is aged on its lees for a minimum of three years beginning in April following the harvest. It's also made entirely from the first pressing; Bertrand's second press juice for all three cuvées is sold to Moët.

Mayacamas Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Winemaker Notes : High on the slopes of Mount Veeder, Mayacamas Vineyards has been a source of legendary California wine since 1889. Since the 1950’s the vinification and élevage of Mayacamas remains remarkably consistent and our continued commitment to employ classical techniques and tools is integral to the character of these wines. The mountain terroir at Mayacamas ranges from 1,800 to 2,400 feet in elevation and the estate spans 475 acres, only 50 of which are dedicated to vine.
Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne Magnum 1.5LWinemaker Notes : Louis Roederer has been synonymous with the world's great Champagnes since 1776. Brut Premier is the House's flagship multi-vintage Champagne and its most popular and best-selling wine. It's the Champagne that sets the house style for this esteemed producer. Brut Premier characterizes the timeless Louis Roederer style with the combination of fresh, youthful fruitiness and the vinous qualities of a fully matured wine.

Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Albarino 2018Winemaker Notes : Bright yellow with pale lemon and greenish hues . Elegant mineral and delicate white pear aroma. Nice acidity on the palate with eucalyptus and ripe granny smith apples. It is very fresh and juicy with a nice and subtle complexity of white flowers aromas and some tea flavors linger out to a pretty pleasant aftertaste. Great with lobster salads and cheese appetizers.
Lucia Gary's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017Winemaker Notes : A deep and rich ruby color, the 2017 Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir impresses from the moment it’s poured. Notes of Bing cherry, violets, and blackberry crisp shine within this purity, and aromas of orange blossom and cedar add enticing complexity. The ample rainfall of the 2017 season energized the vines at Garys’ Vineyard, resulting in a wine of incredible concentration and freshness from the start. Bright, juicy flavors of black cherry, plum, and baking spice add impressive volume on the palate, while soft, supple tannin gives the wine a well-rounded structure. Lively acidity swirls amongst the fruit flavors, adding brightness that bursts from start to finish while hinting at a graceful, long life in bottle.
Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2012Winemaker Notes 2012 was one of the most challenging and complicated years ever experienced in Champagne. However, difficult conditions often lead to great things… The low yields, due to the unpredictable weather, combined with continental conditions towards the end of the season, gave us unusual levels of maturity, resulting in rich, full-bodied and structured wines worthy of the greatest vintages in Champagne. Rich and complex aromas with notes of zesty and candied fruit (lemon) mingled with pollen (white flowers), roasted hazelnut and Madagascar vanilla. After aeration, the bouquet develops rich notes of fresh pastries and smoky notes from bottle ageing. A delicious, concentrated and chalky palate. It shows incredible tension and perfectly honed aromatic precision. The attack is powerful, distinctive and concentrated and reveals a silky, mouth-coating texture, characteristic of the ripe Pinot noirs from the 2012 vintage.
Lafond Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2017Winery Notes: The 2017 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a deep ruby color. Delicate aromas of raspberries and violets combine with mild notes of cherry cola. Stewed Bing cherry, truffle and dried lavender complete the palate. This light-bodied red wine has strong tannins, and can easily stand up to smoked meats, game birds, or teriyaki salmon.
Foley Johnson Carneros Chardonnay 2018Winery Notes: This is a rich and buttery Chardonnay from the Foley Johnson family’s home ranch in Carneros. Full bodied and velvety, with ripe and juicy tropical fruit notes with plenty of buttery notes making me think of warm croissants with melted freshly churned French butter! Impeccably made and in very small quantities, this drinks well above the price. Gorgonzola gnocchi with fried sage for a decadent treat
O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017Tasting Notes: O’Shaughnessy’s 2017 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous and multilayered wine that showcases the complexity of all seven of the Bordeaux varietals that they farm. The wine is dark ruby red with aromas of raspberries, currants, ripe plum, and a bit of smoke. Focused flavours of wild cherry jam, plum butter, and raspberry preserves are followed by a long finish with integrated acidity and complex palate-filling tannins. Muscular, but with restrained elegance, this wine carries the O’Shaughnessy trademark of balance and power.
Lewis Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2019Winemaker Notes: Picture a white-top ‘60 Chevy Impala convertible in seafoam green – showy, detailed and alluring – that’s our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Loaded with sweet mineral and floral spices, guava and ripe lemon-lime; lively and bright with big bandwidth, this is rich yet vibrant wine. Juicy mandarin, lime skin and brine fantail to a refreshingly succulent finish.
Lewis Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2018Winemaker Notes: Our 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet is deliciously well-dressed with black currants, Godiva chocolate, kidskin gloves, and plenty of gravitas.

Lewis Cellars Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2019Winemaker Notes: Key lime pie, orange blossom, pineapple and lemon meringue our 2019 Sonoma Chardonnay swells with tropical delights.

Domaine Francis Orban Extra Brut ChampagneTasting Notes: Aromas of orchard fruit, light herbs, brioche, pepper. Fruity and juicy, with ripe citrus and apple flavors. Vibrant and very long. As an aperitif; with sushi or other fresh seafood; dishes with cream sauce; white meat; very flexible at the table.
Vice Versa Cabernet Sauvignon 2018Winery Note: Dark red color. Complex and concentrated perfume of sweet red and blue berries, blue flowers, thyme and star anise. The palate is layered and offers an expansive creamy texture leading to a long, balanced finish with dark chocolate, ripe pure dark berries and silky ripe tannins.
Bevan Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Dönnhoff Kreuznacher Krötenpfuhl Riesling Kabinett 2018Winery Notes: The loess loam soil of the Krötenpfuhl vineyard is notable for its high share of gravelly quarzite. Between the stony ground and its southern aspect, this neighbor to the Kahlenberg is known for warm soils and early flowering of the vines year after year. The loess loam substrate retains water well, ensuring the vines have sufficient moisture even in drought years. Vines growing in this type of pebbly soil tend to produce small berries with delicate aromas, a lively acidity and a long hang time.
Cru Montage Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2016Winemaker Notes : Pale golden color with aromas of white peach, nectarine and citrus. Fruit forward, yet full bodied with elegant cream (not butter) and apricots, this stylish Chardonnay is a truly handcrafted wine that can be enjoyed with many food pairings or delightfully on its own.
Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016Winery Notes: Fermentation of Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon occurs in both open and closed top fermenters. Certain lots are allowed to macerate on their skins for up to three weeks following fermentation. This technique produces a wine with softer, more integrated tannins, which carry fruit and oak nuances through to the palate. The wine is racked into 70% new French oak barrels for a period of 34 months. The wine is lightly filtered and then bottled.
Andre-Michel Bregeon Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2018Notes from Tom Wolf, Kermit Lynch: On the vanguard of progressive agriculture in AOC Muscadet, Domaine Brégeon has the added fortune of being located in the commune and cru of Gorges. With its gabbro soils, this site is arguably the best terroir for Muscadet. Gabbro, a blue-green volcanic rock formed by magma eruptions under the ocean floor, is rarely found in vineyard land. It is in large part responsible for this crisp blanc’s complexity and core of stony, zesty citrus. In addition to its terroir, the domaine’s farming and vinification practices help explain the appellation-defining quality you find in their wines. From the entry-level Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie to its grand cru sibling—Brégeon’s “Gorges” bottling—vigneron Frédéric Lailler goes above and beyond what is required by the appellation, with his hand harvesting, low yields, and (perhaps most important) organic farming. A native of Gorges, Fred returned to take over the domaine from André-Michel Brégeon because he is devoted to this often overlooked part of the Loire Valley as well as to the potential of the Melon de Bourgogne grape. His Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie—a match made in heaven for all matter of shellfish and light seafood dishes—shows Fred’s zeal for high-quality Muscadet.
Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018 1.5LWinemaker Notes: Deep purple garnet in color, this wine has overflowing aromas of sun-ripened cherries, sweet plums, hints of cola, and white pepper. The palate is complex and rich, packed with dark fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry. This wine is a full and intense expression of Pinot Noir, well balanced with toasted oak and vibrant acidity on the finish.
Palmaz Vineyards Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016Winery Notes: With a greeting of freshly fired creme brûlée and toasted currant, the 2016 Palmaz Cabernet draws you in for a cozy embrace. Comforting flavors of vanilla, caramel, and baked boysenberry dance across the palate. The voluptuous fruit flavors are effortlessly balanced with elegant tannins that cover the tongue like a feather - spreading to every hidden taste bud in the deepest corners of the palate. An everlasting finish that holds steadfast, begging to be remembered - satisfied only by the indulgence of a second glass.
Hirsch Vineyards San Andreas Fault Estate Pinot Noir 2017Winery Notes: Our 2017 Pinot Noirs are characterized by charming ripe fruit, supple tannins, and a juicy fruit character. The 2017 San Andreas is an ideal wine for drinking at any point over the next ten years: it is wonderfully open and expressive already, with the acidity and backbone to age for some years to come.
Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018Winery Notes: Every Flowers wine is made to express the land where it was farmed. Our coastal proximity and high-elevation vineyards give our wine its distinct minerality and fresh acidity. Farmed sustainably, fermented with 100% native yeast and crafted with minimal intervention in the cellar, Flowers Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the rugged and extreme Sonoma Coast. Inviting and expressive aromas of bright red cherry, and raspberry are combined with hints of savory ground clove spice and graham cracker. Nuances of graphite and sea salt bring another dimension that come together with a bright acidity driving a long, lively finish.
Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon Champagne 2010Winery Notes: Nose: The luminous sweetness of tropical fruit – green mango, melon, pineapple – instantly shines. It then cedes to more temperate notes, the tingle of orange zest, the mist of a mandarin orange. The wine breathes, revealing its freshness. The bloom after the rain. A tactile sensation of peony, jasmine and lilac. Palate: The wine immediately imposes its ample presence, full and massive. A sappy sensation dominates as the tactile is rapidly overtaken by the aromatic. The body unfolds: generous, firm and controlled. Then it contracts, letting the wine vibrate with spices and pepper. The energy is sustained to a scintillating, saline finish.
Dönnhoff Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett 2018Winery Notes: The Dönnhoff family first came to the Nahe region over 200 years ago, and after establishing a modest farm slowly evolved into a full-fledged wine estate. Helmut Dönnhoff has been making the wine since 1971, and now his son Cornelius works alongside in the winery and in their 25 hectares of Erste Lage, or grand cru vineyards. Their holdings represent some of the best in the Nahe and all of Germany. Oberhäuser Leistenberg, the oldest vineyard held by the family, has slate soils and produces fruity wines with elegant acidity. Steep, southeasterly facing slope with grey clay slate soil. The morning sun dries the grapes, keeping them healthy; while the afternoon sun is not so direct, allowing the grapes to ripen for a very long time without becoming overripe. A perfect vineyard for Kabinett wines! Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels. Traditional, precise Kabinett with delicate slate aromatics. Nuanced finesse and spicy acidity.
Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken Butterfly Riesling 2019Tasting Notes: The Zilliken Riesling Butterfly is able to inspire the connoisseur with the first sip so much that he wants to perceive its stimulating effect more intensely with further sips. He can do this on the most diverse occasions, because the Zilliken Riesling Butterfly combines the liveliness inherent in it with abundance and strength. This makes it a very flexible food companion that can be enjoyed with light Mediterranean dishes but also with a slightly more sumptuous dish. In addition, due to its harmonious balance between acidity and sweetness, it is an ideal aperitif, but it also shines as a digestif to round off a nice day.
