Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 Product #32394 (In Stock)
Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015

Steve MacRostie creates this classy Chardonnay from grapes grown in some of the most exciting regions of California's Sonoma Coast.  Sangiacomo and Hi Vista vineyards in Carneros give richness and texture.  Several Russian River Valley sites - including sites owned by the Dutton and Martinelli familes - give lift, purity and vibrancy.  And MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Vyd just west of Carneros adds fantastic complexity and length.

All of the fruit is pressed whole cluster (without destemming) to maintain clarity and freshness.  About 90% ferments and ages in (20% new) French oak for more richness and body while 20% stays in stainless steel to retain crispness and cut.  Rich and lush, with plenty of sweet pineapple and tropical fruit, a lash of butter, and bright green apple acids to hold everything in balance.

La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014 Product #32455 (In Stock)
La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014 La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014

As Wine Advocate said a few years ago, "Greg La Follette was one of the pioneers of the Sonoma Coast and he deserves enormous credit for sourcing potentially brilliant vineyard sites throughout the area." This exciting Sonoma Coast Pinot packs the punch of aroma and flavor you'd hope for in a wine twice it's price.  A stellar value.

"The 2014 Pinot Noir (North Coast) is bright, precise and beautifully delineated throughout. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that open up in this super-attractive, mid-weight Pinot from Greg LaFollette."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay 2016 Product #32456 (In Stock)
Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay 2016 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay 2016

Paul Hobbs is one of the handful of true global superstar winemakers and it’s hard to know which is more impressive – his bold Argentine Malbecs or his silky California Cabernets, Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.  With fame came increased demand and higher prices for his estate wines, so Hobbs created Crossbarn to bring his world-class California wines to a broader audience at a more affordable price.  It’s not clear he meant them to be quite THIS affordable, but you should enjoy the crazy good pricing while it lasts.

The Hobbs Crossbarn style is to take advantage of California’s ripeness without adding any excess fat or sweetness.  So only 10% of this Chardonnay goes into barrel while 90% rests in tank with all of it going through secondary malolactic fermentation.  It’s wonderfully rich and creamy, with generous pear, yellow apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavors with a nice buttery accent.  A burst of citrusy acidity balances the richness and helps the long, fruit and butter finish linger on and on.

Ramey Syrah Sonoma Coast 2014 Product #31237 (In Stock)
Ramey Syrah Sonoma Coast 2014 Ramey Syrah Sonoma Coast 2014

As Robert Parker says, "David Ramey has always done a top-notch job with Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Syrah, although he rarely gets enough credit for the latter." 

"The 2014 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is dense, powerful and bursting at the seams with explosive energy. Dried flowers, tobacco, mint, dried cherries, smoke and licorice are all given an extra kick of intensity from the early-ripening vintage."  Vinous (Galloni) 89-91 points

"Co-fermented with 3% Viognier, the 2014 Syrah Sonoma Coast has an intense nose of crushed black cherries and black berries with floral hints of roses and potpourri, plus touches of wild thyme and garrigue. Medium-bodied, it delivers a lot of fruit and earthy flavors with rounded tannins and great length."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Well-structured and appealingly savory, with blueberry and smoky cured meat aromas and focused flavors of dark plum, underbrush and pepper."Wine Spectator 90 points
