This is a spectacular new release – a flawlessly crafted, high energy coastal Chardonnay from one of California’s hottest spots. As bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with a hint of that limestone-influenced minerality creeping in on the finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, the perfect pair with mixed seafood, summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.
Chad’s 2020 McKinley Springs Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is drop dead gorgeous. Those of you who were lucky to catch our sneak preview when we put it in our Gobbler Case can attest. Dark purple to the rim with aromas of black fruits, violets, creme de cassis and a hint of spice. On the palate, full-bodied, round and juicy with elegance and the gorgeous, pure fruit– red and black currants, blackberries and a touch of sweet tobacco.

One of America’s all-time classic Bordeaux Blends and the 2017 Wine Spectator #1 Wine of the Year returns in very limited supply in the fantastic 2019 vintage in Napa where a return to even and dry weather throughout the growing season created the perfect recipe for this flagship bottling. This is a well-rounded and lavish American Bordeaux blend that demonstrates the wonders of North America’s undisputed top Merlot. This beauty also has at least 25-30 years of cellaring potential going for it as well.
Once again dialing up fruit from 1000-1500ft in elevation in the Dundee Hills, Chad’s 2021 is juicy, laser focused and roaring out of the gates. Chad tells me that similar wines (very similar wines) off this vineyard are raising their prices up to $55/bottle from $45 this year due to 2020’s lost year. But where most people are raising prices to recoup last year’s losses, the CHAD Pinot Noir price is somehow lower. A true gift from our favorite winemaker.

“An excellent Valpolicella Ripasso that shows a plethora of dried cranberries, strawberries, nutmeg and red licorice. Medium body, but with a serious backbone of juicy tannins and a solid center palate of dried fruit. Lovely acidity drives the finish.” -James Suckling

From the creative mind and winemaking prowess of Screaming Eagle’s own Andy Erickson and his superstar Vineyard Manager wife, Anne Favia, 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, even in its infancy.

This is a terrific Nero D’Avola especially for the price. A true Sicilian treat, this one is remarkably fresh with a bright acidity – one of the calling cards of the region. It leads with juicy notes blackberries, raisins, cranberry and blueberries with hints of bramble and a splash of baking spices. It has a really nice finish that sticks with you and calls you back.

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard offers up beguiling scents of Morello cherries, mulberries and blackcurrant pastilles, plus underlying cinnamon stick, chocolate mint and tilled soil hints. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals a firm and fine-grained texture, allowing the black and red fruits to shimmer with jaw-dropping energy, finishing on a persistent spicy note.” -Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“What a magnificent bouquet for this Dom Pérignon 2012! Pastry, a hint of smoke and autolytic notes provide a compelling counterpart to eager yet elegant aromas of citrus (lime, tangerine and kumquat) joined by those of fresh fruit, herbs, liquorice, and menthol. There is even a refreshing note of ivy. The palate is tense, vibrant, and very fresh despite its impressive density, which meets its match with an unending finish. This 2012 incarnates the very essence of Dom Pérignon with such a concentrated degree of intensity, along with a capacity for aging, that it is surely destined for a second life in a P2 edition.” -Decanter

Ruinart has always been one of my favorites. Their consistency through the years is very well-documented and this is a beautiful Pinot Noir/Chardonnay Cuvee as always. The nose is super expressive with citrus and tropical fruits with some cherry and raspberry aromas that come on at the end. The palate is distinctive and lush with great balance and freshness and an elegance that seeps from the flute. A rock solid Champagne.

“The 2016 Poggio al Granchio Brunello di Montalcino is aromatically expressive of perfectly ripe cherry, sweet herbs, dried flowers, and stony earth. There is generous purity of fruit on the palate, with mineral-rich earth, and it had the most balanced and harmonious structure in the lineup on this tasting, with present but fine-grained tannin. I love this wine for its darker mineral edge in counterpoint with crunchy and ripe fruit. It is a super-pleasurable wine right out of the gate and will continue to be so over the next 20 or more years”

The former assistant winemaker and apprentice for Helen Turley at Marcassin, Matt Courtney left to start something special at Arista in 2013 and is well on his way. The winery has expanded, their waitlist for bottle allocations now stands at 20+ months (!) and every critic in America raves about these wines. After having the 2016 Farmington Vineyard at 96+ points to offer up last year, I’ve managed to out do myself with easily one of the best Pinot Noirs of the year.
