A lot of times, being first doesn’t mean being the best– but that’s not true in Oregon Pinot Noir. Adelsheim, Eyrie, and Erath are the big three in terms of first to establish roots in Oregon, and to this day, the trio are considered the creme de la creme in what is now hundreds of wineries in the state. Adelsheim is a consistent high-scorer across the board for their entire catalog of wines, having been named a World’s Top 100 Winery seven times now by Wine & Spirits Magazine. Their new 2019 Estate Pinot Noir is a flawless introduction to Oregon Pinot. Everybody will love this one, I’m sure.
For generations, the Almondo family have tended vines of Arneis, the noble white variety of Piedmont. Their Bricco delle Ciliegie dazzles right out of the bottle, with generous aromas of white flowers, almonds and a touch of sage. The mid-palate has layers of concentrated peach and citrus fruit with a mineral streak and a long, clean finish that leaves you wanting another sip.
93 Points (Editors’ Choice), Wine Enthusiast
It’s not surprising this is the fourth straight vintage of at least a 93-point showing and this is even before James Suckling weighs in on his favorite Sardinian winery. By the time he weighs in, it will be too late for wine lovers. I locked into the last 20 cases stateside of this beauty just as Wine Enthusiast was putting the finishing touches on their 93-point Editors’ Choice review, where they loudly called out the wine’s full-bodied juiciness, to match that signature salty finish.

“A relatively new vineyard label for Aubert (the third vintage to be produced), the 2019 Chardonnay Powder House comes from eight acres of what are now estate-owned vines planted in 2013 to Hyde Old Wente and Mt. Eden clones on Goldridge soils. It prances out of the glass with showy scents of fresh nectarines, pink grapefruit, lime leaves and preserved lemons plus hints of struck flint and wet pebbles. The full-bodied palate possesses an almost electric intensity with bags of nervy citrusy flavors and a very lively backbone, finishing with great length and oodles of minerals. This should age fantastically!”

Grifi is a particular highlight in Avignonesi’s impressive portfolio. It’s a large reason, Antonio Galloni called the winery “one of the most respected names in Tuscany”. The ½ Cabernet, ½ Sangiovese blend is a big boy, especially in the hot and dry 2017 vintage, but it also is very tightly structured with silky Sangiovese tannins and a great acidic backbone from the Cabernet that give it lift and elegance as well as ageability. The Grifi Toscana 2017 perfectly exhibits the true terroir of Tuscany – well deserving of the 94-points James Suckling reigned down on it, as well as his praise, “[The Grifi] really brings you through the glass”.
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.

“Firm lines of graphite and loamy earth streak through the opulent aromas of black plum and dried violet on the nose of this brooding Pinot Noir. The palate is a whirlwind of exuberance, as leathery tannins wrap around more graphite minerality, dried violet and lavender, stewed plum and a touch of bittersweet cocoa on the finish.”
This is rich, opulent, stunning Pinot Noir with a higher pH and a deeper, richer complexion than their Willamette neighbors. It’s a dead ringer for Russian River Valley. Deep red ruby color to the rim with high-toned red berry fruit soaring right out of the glass. It’s incredibly fresh with tremendous depth backed by fine tannins, bright acidity and amazing purity of fruit on the palate. It’s a finessed and elegant Pinot with just intensity and length. At this price, there’s no better Pinot in the country. That’s a fact.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.
We were the first in the country to bring in Bisol’s Prosecco Rose last year, a super tasty, refreshing sparkler from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Now, fresh off a huge feature in The Wall Street Journal in which they were crowned as the top Prosecco Rose in a lineup of 14, I suspect what was once our little secret will explode. James Suckling also finally got around to tasting it and gave it 91 points. I’d rate it even higher. The 2020 Bisol Jeio Brut Prosecco Rosé is remarkable, and simply put, mouth-wateringly delicious. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles.
The newly released 2020 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is everything you’re looking for in a vibrant, food-friendly white wine. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever. You’re going to want to add a few bottles to your collection ASAP.
We’re excited to be the first in line for Matt Cline’s new project. Budwood Ancient Vine Own Rooted Red is a blend of Carignan, Mataro and Alicante Bouschet. The color is a deep purple all the way to its rim. The nose is tell-tale Contra Costa, with dusty berry aromas mingled with eucalyptus and mint. Made without oak, the fruit is unadulterated, pure, dark and concentrated, the kind that only ancient vines can produce. The finish is fine, long with a firm acid backbone. This wine was made for outdoor dining, a burger has never met a better match!
