Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Product #31389 (In Stock)
Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013

A new wine from this traditional producer, one that breaks out their juicy, intense, Knights Valley fruit into a wine of its own. Stylish, with black cherry, currant, and red raspberry fruit, a fleshy middle, and nice length before finishing with classically grainy tannins. Grill a steak and enjoy!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013."   Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River 2014 Product #30635 (In Stock)
Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River 2014 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River 2014

The combination of a big dose of Sauvignon Musque clone and the deft use of barrel gives this body, big aromatics, and stunning complexity.

"The beautiful 2014 Sauvignon Blanc shows copious quantities of melons, a touch of honeysuckle, crisp, fresh acid and a touch of wet-rock minerality. It is floral, medium-bodied and loaded with fruit, all good characteristics. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Succulent, lush and rich, with fleshy mango, melon and peach flavors up front, leading to a core of pineapple, lemon and honeysuckle notes. The smoky edge and nervy acidity weave in and out, giving this a fresh finish."Wine Spectator 93 points

Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014 Product #31611 (In Stock)
Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014 Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014

There’s just a little bit of American history in the ground at Bedrock. The site was first planted in 1854 by the gentlemen who would come to be known as Generals William “Tecumseh” Sherman and “Fightin’ Joe” Hooker.  After phylloxera it was replanted in 1888 by Senator George Hearst—a mining magnet, an early father of California, and the father of publisher William Randolph Hearst.

Mike Officer farms two plots of this large site.  About 90% is 1888 Zinfandel with the rest "mixed blacks" (Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and others) plus a dollop of fortifying Mourvedre, also planted in 1888. The Mourvedre gives depth and a structure that will need a little time to fully unwind.  Mike recommends drinking from 2018-2028 and that seems right to us.

“The 2014 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard emerges from one of the warmer sites Carlisle works with. All of that intensity comes through in a big, dramatic wine endowed with serious presence, intensity and tannic heft. Black cherries, menthol, tar, licorice and smoke hit the palate in a big wine that shows the virile side of Zinfandel. The Bedrock is not especially polished, subtle or refined, but it sure is distinctive.”  Vinous (Galloni) 92-94 points

Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch 2014 Product #31612 (In Stock)
Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch 2014 Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch 2014

Planted in 1934 by Celestino Papera, this vineyard is unusual in that the main "mixed black" component here is Carignan (tiny amounts of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Valdiguie are present, too).  It's a cooler site, making late-ripening Carignan a curious choice.  But, as Mike says, " it seems to work, producing a powerfully elegant Zinfandel."  Already super aromatic and expressive, it’s a wine you’ll be pretty thrilled with right now although the winery suggests holding until 2019.

“The 2014 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is exuberant, rich and extroverted to the core. Sweet dark cherry, plum, mint, tobacco, cedar, menthol and spices flesh out in a hugely appealing wine endowed with real depth and intensity. The finish is perhaps a bit chunky, but there is so much to like that I can look past that slightly rustic part of the wine's personality. This historic Russian River site was planted in 1934. The blend of 96% Zinfandel and 4% Carignane is unusually high for mixed blacks vineyards planted during this period.”  Vinous (Galloni) 92-94 points

Patz & Hall Chardonnay Dutton Ranch Sonoma 2015 Product #31593 (In Stock)
Patz & Hall Chardonnay Dutton Ranch Sonoma 2015 Patz & Hall Chardonnay Dutton Ranch Sonoma 2015

A great follow up to the 95 point 2014! "lovely layered aromas of pear, pineapple, Gravenstein apple, taffy and white flowers. On the palate, a streak of minerality adds to this wine’s graceful, energetic structure, underscoring the orchard fruit flavors of apple and pear. French oak-inspired notes of sweet smoke and burnt sugar add depth and nuance to a lingering finish."  Winery Notes

Jayson Chardonnay 2013 Product #31494 (In Stock)
Jayson Chardonnay 2013 Jayson Chardonnay 2013

Rich, buttery, spiced, and generous - that's the style Pahlmeyer goes for with their Jayson line.  A classically rich style that doesn't go over the top.

"A fresh-baked bread aroma and flavors like butter and baking spices make this full-bodied wine very attractive. It has ample acidity to balance the rich texture, and a lingering finish that completes the classic profile."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

"Clean and pure nectarine, tangerine, citrus blossom and white peach notes mingle amid the core of pithy flavors, touching on fruit skin textures and tannins. Mounts a strong finish, turning to a chalky limestone aftertaste."Wine Spectator 92 points
