This is a gorgeous wine from the vineyard brought to you by Peter Michael and Marc Aubert. Wine Enthusiast raved about this wine, and it’s a bottle that quickly disappeared when it was released all those years ago. But thanks to this cellar raid, I’m able to bring to you think beauty that Wine Enthusiast said would be best from “2022-2029” while also calling it “a layered and complex estate-driven wine.”

“From an extreme coastal site at 1,875-feet elevation, this wine offers substantial underlying power within a context of elegance and refinement. Tension and grip persist in its youth, allowing nuanced layers of ash, mountain berry and earthy forest tones to build over time.” -Virginia Boone
What would a Chardonnay collection be without something special from the master of Chardonnay, Steve Kistler? I was able to get a more cases to offer up at our lowest price. Les Noisetiers surrounds the Kistler winery on the Sonoma Coast. Steve’s brand new 2020 is bristling with energy juicy fruit and a mouthwatering mineral backbone. It is delicious wine, with lemon, honeysuckle and stone fruit aromatics leading to a full bodied, juicy core, loaded with flavors of peach, apricots, pineapple and pear.

“The last of the appellation releases, the 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was brought up in 55% new French oak, which is slightly more than the 2013. Deep, rich and earthy, with notes of bouquet garni, smoked earth, licorice and dark fruits, it has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate and is packed with gorgeous amounts of fruit. It’s a big, rich wine from this cool climate appellation, yet I suspect it will show more classic Sonoma Coast characteristics with a year or two in bottle. It’s a beautiful wine.” -Jeb Dunnuck

This is a beauty with some age to it in an outstanding year throughout California. From the vineyard brought to you by Marc Aubert and Peter Michael, this was made from three separate clones of Pinot Noir, that each bring a different element into play. Also, with a little whole cluster fermentation, this one has a bigger, juicier and earthier mouthfeel that offers new appeal each time you go back for another sip. This collector is in its drinking prime right now and should remain for the next 3-5 years. Enjoy it.

“Another sensational appellation release is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from an early vintage that was over two weeks ahead of average, it has tons of spice, black raspberry, currants and blackberry characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and no shortage of depth or length. Already impossible to resist, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.” -The Wine Advocate
