Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Product #32542 (In Stock)
Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016

Ed Sbragia made his name – and the winery’s fame – during a 32 year tenure as Beringer’s head “winemaster.” This 100% Chardonnay comes from Ed’s “Home Ranch” vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, just 1 mile from Dry Creek and the Russian River. The ripe fruit is hand harvested, sorted, and then fermented and aged “sur lie” in French oak (just 10% new).  The result is a fresh, vibrant, wine that delivers plenty of Russian River richness in the form of a creamy texture and generous apple, pear, and tropical fruit.  Wine Spectator under-rates this a bit, but is correct on one thing – as fine as it is today, it will be even more delicious a few months from now!

“Bold, rich and spicy, with a juicy core of melon, fig, green apple and citrus flavors, shaded by light spicy oak. Young and edgy, this can stand a little cellar time.” Wine Spectator 89 points

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

Fisher Vineyards Chardonnay Unity 2014 Product #30737 (In Stock)
Fisher Vineyards Chardonnay Unity 2014 Fisher Vineyards Chardonnay Unity 2014

A bit of a throw-back here in a well-done big, ripe, buttery, style. 92% Sonoma and 8% Anderson Valley fruit aged in 30% new French oak with lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation for a perfect blend of richness and vibrancy.  Loads of ripe tropical fruit on the nose and palate with a creamy texture and generous accents of butter and spice. Finishes rich and juicy - a great sipper or match for chicken or lobster!

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

"Plump and rich flavors wrap around a big but refined structure, with briary wild berry aromas and zesty notes of smoky anise, cracked pepper and stony mineral that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028."Wine Spectator 94 points
