From a true American wine icon– the late, great Jim Clendenen. The Chardonnays he makes out of Santa Barbara are particularly special, with Chuck Wagner of Caymus fame, once declaring, “Jim Clendenen is the reason I came down [South] to make Chardonnay.” Au Bon Climat for decades now has produced some of the best Burgundian expressions in Southern California, with beautifully aromatic, clean Chardonnay that’s not over-extracted like much of Napa. It’s made with oak but minimal new oak allowing for a true wine driven Chard with a creamy middle palate consisting of lemon pudding, citrus and a hint of vanilla. The finish is high-toned and bright and continues to linger for a few precious seconds.

From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.
We were the first in the country to bring in Bisol’s Prosecco Rose last year, a super tasty, refreshing sparkler from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Now, 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.

“Rich and fruit-filled, with well-focused apple pastry, peach, quince, and tangerine flavors that lengthen out with the buttery richness of the mid-palate. The spicy finish features toasty notes. Drink now through 2023.”
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.

“Redolent of balsamic spice and herb, this full-bodied red offers dark and brambly berry and black currant fruit layered with grippy tannins. Lingering, tar-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025.” – Wine Spectator
What separates this newly released Valpolicella from its peers is the grapes used were grown for this wine specifically. This isn’t Amarone seconds, it’s a precisely crafted and seductive rendition of the Corvina grape that will appeal to Red Burgundy lovers. Highly versatile and elegant, Ca La Bionda’s Valpolicella mesmerizes with red and blackberries, anise and Asian spices with serious depth. The 2020 is tightly wound with smooth velvety tannins. This wine is a fresh pizza’s best friend.

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.
Chateau Sipian Medoc 2019 is a total showstopper with all the sunny radiance of this special vintage on display. Its aromatics soar, redolent of super-ripe red cherry, red plum, and cedar. In the mouth, the fruit is concentrated yet balanced with great tension, with flavors of bright red/purplish berry fruit, wild flowers, savory spice, anise and underbrush all developing in the glass. Silky tannins wrap it all together in a long, fresh finish. Medium in body and all class, the ‘19 Sipian is an absolute winner.
Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadlle, then you know why. The 2020 vintage has just arrived, and it’s a fantastic vintage in Bordeaux for energetic whites. This is world-class, as always.
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.
