Obviously, I can’t tell you all the details of the vineyard source but I can let you in on a few of the details. Crafted using fruit from 1000-1500 ft in elevation, Chad’s 2019 is cool climate Pinot at its best– especially given the price tag. While similar wines (very similar wines) will fetch a $45 price tag, you can snag it today just less than half off that price on bottle one. There’s no surprise this is the #1 wine of the year in 2020.

From the creative mind and winemaking prowess of Screaming Eagle’s own Andy Erickson, comes a passion project unlike any other. The goal at Leviathan is to make only one wine a year– the biggest red in the U.S. Sourced from some of the best vineyards up and down the coast (you can thank Andy and Screaming Eagle for that), it’s a big, intense wine that will only get better with age, though it’s great right now.
The 2018 Titus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is plush and vibrant – with aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and fig. Cherry, purple berries, and gentle spice give way to plum and light oak with a tight finish that seemingly never ends. It’s drinking phenomenally now, but will continue to improve for another decade.
This is a new release and it’s quite the show stopper. If you’ve never had the Abbonna Dolcetto Dogliani Sori di But, you need to. Drawn off the highest vineyard in Dogliani where Dolcetto is the king grape. This one has tremendous energy out of the bottle. Dark violet in color, with wonderful aromas of black cherry, tea leaves and sage, fermented in steel vats to allow these ‘grand cru’ ancient plantings to shine through unencumbered. So aromatic and food friendly. A must try! Get it before these great vineyards are gone forever!

The 2019 Renegade Red is a gorgeous California Red blend that’s plush, silky and juicy and happens to push 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. This is arguably the best rendition yet out of hotspot Paso Robles where it’s connected with a fresh new 94-point score that recognizes it’s immense value in one of the domestic bargains of the year.

“For Bibi Graetz’s 20th anniversary of his beloved Testamatta, the superstar winemaker set out to make something truly age-worthy and spectacular and unlike anything he has made to date. Armed with his brand new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility in Florence, Graetz’s 2019 Testamatta is elegant and pure with multiple layers of depth and evolution. With part of the makeup consisting of vines from the 1950’s, the wine has such sophistication and intrigue and I suspect will continue to evolve into something special over the next three to four decades. ” – Nicholas
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.
This year’s California Dreamin’ Six pack has a little something for everybody but really all three wines should win over everyone at the Thanksgiving table. We picked three wines from some of the best winemakers in California, discounted it by 30% and serve it today for you to dig into. Each six-pack includes:

A sexy package with a great label leads you off before you’re swooned by a mix of citrus, white peach, and turkish apricots. On the palate, you’re hit with a refreshing sweet and sour combination with incredibly tiny, salty bubbles. This one is a beauty – the definition of a crowd pleaser. Vinous got a hold of it and gave it their highest rating for the category of the vintage, a 91-point score for a wine they deemed, “incredibly pretty and highly likable”. This is going to be the go-to for Melissa this year, I can already tell.

“The Caprili 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is lovely. The wine strikes that great balance of dark fruit, rose and tar that makes Brunello unique, and it doesn’t have those rough edges or stemmy tannins that you see sometimes in this undeniably hot and dry vintage. This expression remains elegant but also generous, and that’s not an easy intersection to reach. This is a standout wine from 2017, despite the challenges and the lower yields obtained this year. “
This year, the Eastside Cuvee hails from a primo vineyard just off the Silverado Trail– perfectly positioned next to neighbors Caymus and Frog’s Leap and just down the road, Quintessa. Amongst the elite, Carl Roy’s team locked into some incredible fruit, with gorgeous blackberry jammy opulence, firm grippy tannins and that signature Rutherford earthiness to the finish that many try to emulate but can only be produced off the special soil from which this beauty was created.
