The 2017 Renegade Red is a huge red wine blend that pushes 15% alc. You never taste it though, it’s well hidden within its rich, juicy texture accented by flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cedar and cocoa. It finishes long with a hint of spice — a guaranteed crowd pleaser for sure. So much so Wine Enthusiast gave it 92 points – one of the highest ratings of the year for a wine of this type.
A Pinot usually exclusively for top restaurants throughout the country, the Anthill Farms North Coast Pinot Noir is a NV blend from their top wines from Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley with a smidge of Comptche. It’s medium bodied, red ruby to the rim with inviting aromas of red cherry, plum, apple pie and cinnamon. As one of the hottest Pinot Noir producers in the US over the last decade, the winemakers of Anthill Farms have been called the rock stars of Pinot Noir.
The 2019 Clos Julien is a classic example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. It starts out with a great nose of Granny Smith apple, citrus rind and acacia. In the mouth, the fruit is pure, with plenty of extract and the finish is clean and crisp. This Pacific-influenced wine is the perfect house white, delicious by itself as an aperitif but a fantastic foil to the cuisine of summer, scallops, grilled poultry, and summer corn.

The 2017 Sage Canyon Road is absolutely delicious. The wine is bright, lively and packed with flavor perfectly balancing earthiness with a refreshing minerality. The Carignan provides elements of wild cherry, plum and black fig, while the Grenache and Mourvèdre add exotic aromas of herbs and spice.
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.
Winemaker Matt Cline’s 2018 Contra Costa Zinfandel crafted off old-vines between 110-140 years in age 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!
