Mossback Cabernet Sauvignon Chalk Hill 2010 Product #27953 (In Stock)
Mossback Cabernet Sauvignon Chalk Hill 2010 Mossback Cabernet Sauvignon Chalk Hill 2010

The Chalk Hill AVA in the northeastern corner of the Russian River Valley includes only a half-dozen wineries - most famously Chalk Hill Winery - and about 1,600 acres of vineyard. A warm thermal belt running along the western slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains and a unique, chalky-appearing soil (actually decomposed volcanic ash) make this one of Sonoma's best sites for Chardonnay and Bordeaux varietals.

Normally, you'd expect to pay $40+ for handmade Cabernet from Chalk Hill, but the folks at Mossback have somehow figured out how to deliver 100% Chalk Hill quality at about 50% of the price!  A classic style, with aromas of dark cherry and currant fruit complemented by notes of vanilla, licorice, crushed herb and baking spice.  Rich but with a juicy lift, the flavors stay focused on black cherry and currant, dark chocolate, and macerated blackberry.  Plenty of grip and focused acidity support a long, lingering, finish.  Great steak wine with a fine future in front of it!

Siduri Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2012 Product #27751 (In Stock)
Siduri Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2012 Siduri Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2012

Adam and Dianna Lee make a dozen (or more!) Pinot's from across California, all highly rated and many quite expensive.  This is their "everyday" Pinot Noir from Sonoma County, a rich, ripe, and round expression of Pinot Noir that delivers a mouthful of spicy red berry fruit without getting heavy or sweet.  A touch of cranberry on the ripe finish where woodsmoke, fresh earth, and mocha notes add complexity.

Shane Syrah The Unknown North Coast 2011 Product #28130 (In Stock)
Shane Syrah The Unknown North Coast 2011 Shane Syrah The Unknown North Coast 2011

In 2011, the Syrah (85%) for The Unknown comes from one of our favorite sites and growers - Ulises Valdez's Chapoutier clone from Rockpile Vineyard.  Instead of Viognier, the 2011 includes 15% Grenache, also grown by Valdez in the Russian River.  Lots of whole cluster (75%) and moderate new oak (25%) lets the sites and vines sing out.

"Inky ruby. Aromas and flavors of dark berries, cola and candied violet, with a peppery nuance that gains power with air. Juicy and precise, with impressive clarity, focus and persistence on the silky, floral finish. In an elegant style for a syrah-based wine, with pinot-like weight and vivacity."International Wine Cellar 91 points

Moshin Pinot Noir Molinari Vyd Sonoma 2009 Product #28098 (In Stock)
Moshin Pinot Noir Molinari Vyd Sonoma 2009 Moshin Pinot Noir Molinari Vyd Sonoma 2009

A really drinkable, balanced, and even fresh Sonoma County Pinot Noir that's labeled at a whopping 15.5% - but surely that must be wrong?  The texture reminds of Carneros, plush, rich, and nicely concentrated with no over ripeness or heat.  Loads of rich black and Bing cherry fruit are complemented by notes of spice and warm earth and just a touch of oak.  Finishes bright and refreshing (15.5%?  Really?) with lingering red fruit and spice.  A fun, food-friendly, bottle of California Pinot Noir.

Hanzell Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2009 Product #26887 (In Stock)
Hanzell Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2009 Hanzell Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2009

One of the oldest operating wineries in Sonoma, Hanzell delivers Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that blend Burgundian elegance with Sonoma ripeness and depth. Like all Hanzell estate wines, this 2009 Pinot is built to cellar (and needs a couple of hours of air right now).  Complex aromas of pomegranate and cherry with accents of rose petal and spice.  With air, orange peel and sweet tobacco notes unfold to match the deep flavors of blackberry, ripe red fruits, and spice. A citrus oil note and squirt of acid keeps everything in balance and the fine tannins will support another decade or more in cellar.

"Fresh and snappy, with firm tannins and a core of mineral-laced wild berry, mocha, cedar and dried berry notes. Shows great structure, depth, focus and persistence. A great cellar choice. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 93 points

Soliste Syrah Out Of The Shadows 2009 Product #27081 (In Stock)
Soliste Syrah Out Of The Shadows 2009 Soliste Syrah Out Of The Shadows 2009

A seriously interesting Syrah from Bennett Valley in Sonoma - one that delivers Soliste's trademark marriage of California ripeness with French elegance and poise.  Wonderfully aromatic with generous notes of violets, smoked meat, cassis, blackberry, plum and bacon.  Then, precise and fresh on the palate with big flavors - black fruit, licorice, bacon fat, smoke, and violets - supported by minerally acidity and fine tannins.  The interplay of tangy fruit and succulent ripeness is fascinating.
