“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.”
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!
The brand new Clos Julien Chard is a great example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. This one comes bristling with energy right out of the gates. It’s a flawlessly crafted single-vineyard Chardonnay– as bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with great minerality and a lingering, bright finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, pairs great with those summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.
The 2020 CJ Rose is a light bright pink color. Aromas of high-toned red berry and flowers just fly from the glass and pick up a slight savory accent as the wine opens up. Juicy and fresh on the palate, offering wild strawberry and citrus rind flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half. A long, focused and bone-dry finish showcase amazing energy for what is sure to be a new happy hour go-to and Tuesday night Hall of Famer.
The secret to the Stolpman wine’s freshness and balance is the fact that they do not irrigate. Sure, it stresses the vines but it forces the roots to go really deep, tapping into the groundwater that is seriously affected by the limestone. The grapes are tiny, packed with flavor and brimming with the stony minerality that only the limestone can bring.

Fresh off its feature as one of Wine Spectator’s ‘Exciting California Values Under $25’, winemaker Matt Cline’s 2018 Contra Costa Zinfandel is a gem crafted off old-vines between 110-140 years in age. This is a bowl of blackberry fruit with a dusting of baking spice. The fruit is pure, fresh and long making it both delicious on its own or terrific with a burger, BBQ ribs, or grilled leg of lamb. Crazy cheap for what is in the bottle, load up!
