2018 Kathryn Kennedy Sauvignon Blanc  

In addition to the very fine and incredibly age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons for which Kathryn Kennedy is known, they also make a great Sauvignon Blanc. This 2015 was sourced from only certified organic vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake Counties, thus giving it a straight California appellation. We were delighted to see that all that great organic fruit is playing well together, forming a nicely fruited but not overly fruity Sauvignon with great balancing acidity. It was gobbled up by our thirsty and discriminating wine bar guests when it was featured on the menu recently and we want to make sure we always have it on hand until it's all gone.

2015 Domaine Eden Chardonnay  

The 2015 harvest started off in mid-August (early) and was the last year of our five-year drought. As with our Estate Chardonnay, this wine is barrel-fermented in French oak and aged on the yeast lees for ten months in our Mount Eden cave. Two-thirds of the final blend came from our estate vineyards and one-third from the Chardonnay grown at Domaine Eden.
 
In early spring we review which lots of the Estate fruit are destined for our flagship Estate Chardonnay and which will go into the Domaine Eden. We taste through each barrel: those that have the most verve, reticence, length, and acid structure are candidates for the Mount Eden Estate; and the ones which are more forward in their fruit and are perceived to be earlier maturing, go into the Domaine.   It is a little humbling because, with bottle age, the Domaine wines compete well with the Estate Bottling.
 
Lovely perfume of lemon, hazelnut, and vanilla, this  Chardonnay gives way to a powerful palate with all-important minerality. The mountain terroir is especially evident in the lingering finish.  This small-yield vintage is a good candidate for the cellar so expect a peak in 2022 and beyond.

2018 Villa Wolf Dry Riesling  

The growing season in the Pfalz started early and the summer was very hot and dry, which led to an early harvest. The yields were excellent compared to the small 2017 vintage, and we were very happy to have such healthy grapes and high quality. The 2018 harvest period was unproblematic and quite smooth. Because of the dry weather conditions and the healthy state of the grapes there was no need to rush, giving us time for careful selection and very gentle handling in the cellar.

2016 Annesanti Sangiovese  

Valnero" by Annesanti is a Sangiovese produced with freedom and productive mastery by the winemaker Francesco.

2016 Martella Grenache  

Here is a red wine to enjoy even in the warm summer months ahead. These Grenache grapes come from two cool-climate vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains that produce full-flavored fruit with delicacy and elegance, more like a true Rhône-style wine than a California powerhouse wine.

Michael's 2016 Grenache is a clear garnet in color with subdued aromas of cherry, vanilla and plum and floral notes of jasmine. It is a medium-bodied wine, silky in texture (a silkiness much enhanced by aeration). The small percentage of Syrah in this wine adds a layer of rich fruit flavor and spice notes. Ripe tannins and fine texture make the finish smooth and satisfying.

This Grenache makes an excellent summer sipping wine, which is not what you would expect from a red wine. Enjoyable on its own, it will also make a good dinner companion with grilled chicken and braised onions. Or try it with a roasted beet salad with pears, mild blue cheese and glazed walnuts.

2018 Bistue Cellars Tannat  

The Tannat grape is originally from Madrian, France and also the predominant grape in Uruguay. We’ve found that in Winters, CA Tannat vines can fully mature its tannins and produce lush and vibrant full-bodied wines. Winemaking Notes 50% of the wine was aged in 300L oak barrels for 12 months (25% in new American, 25% new French) and the rest in stainless steel tanks. We harvest during the night on late September or Early October, depending on the maturity of the grapes and the climatic conditions of each year, obtaining well-ripened grapes with mature tannins and fantastic concentration of flavors. A good and clean harvest is the starting point for making great wines, so we sort of clusters in the field and at the winery, eliminating all non-desired components. We also use dry ice after destemming to prevent early fermentation. Once at the winery, the grapes are fermented in bins with multiple daily punch-downs. Tasting Notes Aromas of cherries and black berries with mild notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Savory and smooth black licorice, with dark minerals and tamed but firm tannins. Intense and full bodied. Pair with poultry, red meats, cold cuts and brie cheese.

2016 Aaron Petite Sirah  

The flagship wine that started it all. Each year we taste through every barrel one by one and select the wines to blend together into the Aaron Petite Sirah. Specifically, it's the barrels that, when tasted blind, simply jump out and wow us. However, it's never about one specific character or flavor profile, but rather those barrels that speak to us across all the different vineyards. Each site we work with produces a very different style of Petite Sirah, and the goal is to create what we feel is a 'complete' wine, which in reality is quite difficult. To check all the boxes, you need to have a lot of elements to create the depth and complexity to really give it that wow factor. In total, the blend is made up of 5 different vineyards in the Willow Creek, Adelaida, and Templeton Gap Districts, all of which bring a different element to the blend. Deep aromatics of cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, and smoked meats complement a huge palate of dark fruits, pepper, spice, and floral notes.

2017 Fossil Point Pinot Noir  

From the producer: "In the Edna Valley, on California’s Central Coast, our vines are never far from the influence of the sea. Sunny afternoons yield daily to brisk marine breezes, and the growing season is directly shaped by the seasonal flow of the currents and surface temperature of the nearby Pacific Ocean. Even our soils of calcareous shale and coarse sand were uplifted from the ancient ocean floor and weathered into place over the millennia. Fossil Point pays tribute to this bond between sea and vine. Located less than five miles due west of our winery, Fossil Point is a rugged headland with sweeping views of the coastline from Port San Luis to the Guadalupe Dunes. Standing on Fossil Point, you can enjoy the same ocean breezes that are on their way to our vineyards, where they will guide our vines to perfect ripeness."

2014 Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains  

"A worthy successor to the profound 2013 and the fruit of the earliest harvest on record at this address, the 2014 Monte Bello is still quite youthfully expressive, wafting from the glass with an exuberant bouquet of minty dark berries, plums, black cherries, cigar box and a nicely integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and intense, with a rich chassis of structuring tannins, which are currently largely concealed in a succulent core of fruit, and bright balancing acids. In profile, it's structurally more open-knit and giving than the massive 2013, and I suspect it will reach its plateau sooner, but it should enjoy over three decades of longevity. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, and it attained 13.5% natural alcohol. 'The drought had a positive effect on concentration,' observed winemaker Eric Baugher when we corresponded shortly after harvest, adding that 'the wines are opaque in color, with rich tannins and marvellous fruit.' Four years later, that remains an accurate characterization of the 2014 Monte Bello." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2014 Michel Rolland Cabernet Sauvignon  

"Michel Rolland's enormous experience and obvious knowledge of great viticulture and winemaking has turned out a 300-case cuvee (14.7% natural alcohol) of exceptional wine. Notes of graphite, creme de cassis, blackberry, and a touch of coffee and white chocolate are present in this wine, which offers elegance, full body, beautiful purity, and sweet, well-integrated tannins. As the wine sits in the glass, some blueberry liqueur notes also develop. This plush, full-bodied wine should hit its prime in 4-5 years and last for 20 or more." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2015 Daou 'Soul of a Lion' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon  

"Bottled just after I tasted it from barrel last year, the 2014 Soul of A Lion is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in new French oak barrels. Elegant, layered and decadent, with lots of blackcurrants, smoked earth, licorice, dark chocolate and espresso, it hits the palate with a killer, seamless texture, no hard edges and a great, great finish. It’s seriously good and up with some of the greatest Bordeaux blends from Paso Robles to date. " - Jeb Dunnuck

2014 Chapellet 'Prichard Hill' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon  

"The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, is a stunner and one of the great, great 2014s. Inky purple with blueberry and blackberry fruit, cassis, licorice, graphite and white flowers, the wine is stunningly concentrated, full-bodied and seemingly one of the greatest of the 2014s. Still youthful, with at least 25-30 years of upside potential at the minimum, this is a wine for patient connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2050.” 99 Points: An extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic wine of its variety. Wines of this caliber are worth a special effort to find, purchase, and consume" - Robert Parker

2000 Ridge 'Monte Bello Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon  

"The 2000 Monte Bello Proprietary Red (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc) is a surprisingly forward example of a Ridge Monte Bello. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet toasty oak along with creme de cassis, licorice, and resin-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, and elegant with soft tannin as well as a forward style (surprising in view of winemaker Paul Draper’s typical style), I would not be surprised to see it firm up considerably in the bottle, and last for 12-13 years."  - Robert Parker

2014 Bond 'Quella' Bordeaux Blend  

Quella is the name for the wine from a 9-acre site located in the eastern hills overlooking the heart of the Napa Valley. Making its debut with the 2006 vintage, the name is derived from the German word for a pristine source or an artesian aquifer. This property is steeply sloped facing southwest. The site is an ancient riverbed composed of cobble and rocks interwoven with pockets of tufa (volcanic ash) that were uplifted during the last volcanic activity in the area. Quella displays an almost ethereal quality of blue fruits, graphite, and a vibrant, subtle finish.

2014 Bond 'St. Eden' Bordeaux Blend  

St. Eden is based upon an 11-acre rocky knoll that is part of a beautiful estate located just north of the Oakville Crossroad. Eden is an historical reference to this region’s designation on nineteenth century maps. The red rocky soil of this northfacing site originates from high in the Vaca Mountains. St. Eden, which appeared first in the 2001 vintage, reliably shows great focus, an opulent “sweet” center and notes of crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and roasted herbs. Mineral-tinged and broad on the palate, the wine consistently displays fine-grained tannins and a lush concentration.

2016 Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon  

Deep shades of purple, and rich dark-red hues, signal that this is a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Characteristic aromas of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, dark chocolate and notes of oak precede balanced acidity and firm tannins. With forward fruit, and welcome mineral undertones, this is a perfectly balanced wine that is approachable now, yet will age beautifully. The grapes from throughout the valley that were farmed to make this Bordeaux-style blend provide a natural diversity of flavors.

2015 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux  

When I asked winemaker Olivier Berrouet about his greatest challenges in 2015, he replied, “Our biggest challenge is to avoid all the temptations you can have in the vineyard and in the cellar. You can go too far. With our job, if you go too far, you can’t go back. Little steps are best.” His comments eloquently explain the immense pressure of handling a seemingly pressure-less vintage like 2015 in Pomerol. But, with the devil in all the many details that are involved in the pursuit of wine perfection, if anyone has that devil by the horns, it is this incredibly talented young winemaker. -Robert Parker

2016 Lokoya 'Howell Mountain' Cabernet Sauvignon  

At the northeastern side of Napa Valley’s Vaca Range, the Howell Mountain appellation peaks at 2,500 feet. Our estate W.S. Keyes Vineyard was planted in 1888, and has been the exclusive source for the Lokoya Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon since its first vintage in 1995. The vineyard sits at 1,825 feet, high above the fog line, where temperatures are cool but moderate, and Cabernet Sauvignon in particular thrives with extra time to ripen. The vines bask in a steady breeze and sunlight, surrounded by a forest of ponderosa pine. Lean, quick-draining soils force the vines to struggle, yielding small grapes that possess deep, concentrated flavor with a signature minerality and earthy undertone.

2016 Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon  


Just about as close to perfection as a wine can get, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Chris Carpenter comes mostly from mountain vineyards and is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot. This full-bodied, rounded, thrillingly textured beauty boasts a saturated purple color as well as a huge nose of crème de cassis, new saddle leather, barbecue smoke, and scorched earth. It has perfect integration of its fruit, tannins, acidity, and oak, carries remarkable power and intensity, yet still glides over the palate with no heaviness or sensation of weight. It’s going to be a legendary Napa Valley Cabernet and will have 3 decades or more of longevity. -JD
