|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Fulldraw is new to the line-up with fruit sourced from the vineyard immediately adjoining Booker. The soils are pure white calcareous shale, and getting a crop is almost impossible. Thus making it both a widely unique site as well as borderline unsustainable due to the miniscule yields. As with most young vines in a site that has no vigor, the fruit you get it fresh and exciting but it is key to refrain from getting carried away and making a wine that is over the top in ripeness.

Next of Kyn Cumulus Vineyard #7 2013 750ml
Sine Qua Non Capo Dei Putti Syrah 2014 750mlSine Qua Non was created after the 1994 harvest of a Bien Nacido Syrah which was named The Queen of Spades. Manfred feels strongly that each year, each vintage, is a completely unique wine and thus he gives each wine a unique name. He also creates the artwork for each new label himself. Previously, Manfred had made wines with Bryan Babcock and John Alban. The basic wines have always been a white blend of Chardonnay, Roussanne and Viognier and a red wine based on Syrah plus some Grenache. There are at times small quantities of Rose and a Grenache-based red. They also embarked on a fantastic project with the renowned winemaker Alois Kracher of Austria. The wines are called Mr. K and represent sweet wines made in the world's greatest styles: Eiswein, Vin de Paille and TBA.

Realm The Tempest 2016 750mlThe Tempest - a famous play, a violent storm, and the name of our Merlot-based blend, fashioned after the great wines of Pomerol in Bordeaux. The Tempest was the first proprietary wine Realm released, so named for the "perfect" storm of three grape varietals that became available at the same time, from the same vineyard, in 2002 -- the year of our tumultuous beginning. Though our equipment was borrowed and the winery we occupied unfinished, our grapes were sound that year - beautiful in fact - and the resulting wine reflected a fierce determination to brave the storm. The Tempest is still made with beautiful grapes, from vineyards such as Beckstoffer Orchard and Dr. Crane, as well as Blair Vineyard in Calistoga. Predominantly Merlot, with lesser amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot depending on vintage, The Tempest is a roiling cauldron of lush, bright, red fruit - a wine that shows what Merlot can be in the right hands, from the right vineyards.
Realm The Falstaff 2016 750mlOur Cabernet Franc-dominated proprietary blend takes its name from one of Shakespeare's most vividly-drawn comedic characters, a knight of formidable appetite, a Joker with spirit and wit.

Aromas of blackberry, roasted plums, espresso, India ink, graphite, dark chocolate, and nutmeg. The wine is full bodied with a creamy richness. It captures the essence of Lotus Vineyard in its firm structure and concentration while retaining energy and balance. Classic blue and black fruit preserves, and warm spice flavors coat the palate. Enjoy 2019 through 2035 and beyond.
Saxum G2 Vineyard Red 2016 750mlIt is a truly exotic wine. Not far beneath the core of plum and blood orange there are scents of what I would imagine a Moroccan market would smell like, incense and spice and perhaps a touch of something illegal (at least in most of the US!). I think this wine will reward some patience in the cellar, more so than the other Grenache blends we made in 2016. Give her 3 years to really strut her stuff.
Saxum Terry Hoage Vineyard 2016 750mlWe found the Grenache to be the super star of the vintage and wanted to preserve its purity and beauty, so we chose to age this blend primarily in 1 large oak Foudre (3000 Liters). This allowed the wine to retain it's energy and precision, even though it's a ripe, juicy, fruit dominated wine. Sticking with the theme of 16, pleasure balanced with intrigue and depth of purity.
Booker Vineyard The Ones 2 Box Set 2016 750ml98-100 JD - A 100% Syrah cuvée, the 2016 Syrah Ones comes from the best block on the estate, which was pulled from the Fracture cuvée as it didn't blend well. Crème de cassis, black raspberries, smoke, crushed violets and vanilla bean, it has an ethereal texture, killer purity and fine tannin. It's going to flirt with perfect, 98 JD - One of the finest Bordeaux blends to yet come from these awesome hillsides is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Ones. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 80% new barrels, this crazy good 2016 boasts a saturated purple color and awesome notes of crème de cassis, blackberries, scorched earth, graphite, and chocolate. It too is a massive, opulent, unctuous beauty and has sweet tannins, thrilling purity of fruit, and terrific overall balance. Hide bottles for 2-4 years and it should keep for 10-15 years, probably quite a bit longer.

Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs 2016 750mlThis 2016 Blanc de Blancs has bright aromas of ripe green apple, Bosc pear, sweet spice and buttered brioche, which intermingle with hints of fresh ginger, stone fruit and coriander. Honeycrisp apple, grilled lemon, and orange peel bring fruitful notes to the mid-palate, ending with a clean crisp acidity that's punctuated with caramelized and tropical flavors. While this wine can be enjoyed by itself as an apéritif, it is perfect with fresh oysters and other shellfish, crab cakes, ceviche and grilled sea bass. It is also delicious with lemon chicken and Thai curries. Serve with aged Gouda or other hard cheeses, and as a counterpoint to soft triple creams.
Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mlThe 2017 Faust Cabernet is a blend of our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mlThe 2017 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of ripe raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry along with hints of cedar and spice.

Château-Latour Pauillac 1988 6L BottleThe Grand Vin displays concentrated aromas of coffee, liquorice and truffle, even if its color is still dark rubis. The mouth is very structured, elegant and very concentrated, with a long back-bone of tannins and a persistent finish.
Chateau-Margaux Margaux 1988 6L BottleThe very deep colour, the rich, intense nose and the magnificent structure on the palate are very reminiscent of the 1986. They have the same powerful, ripe tannins, with perhaps a little less concentration, but also less austerity. Unlike 1986, in fact, 1988 is starting to open out; we can therefore drink it, knowing full well that it will continue to improve for several years -seven or eight at least.
Bogle Merlot 2017 750mlGorgeous in the glass with rich hues of garnet, the first impressions entice with aromas of sandalwood, vanilla and black cherry. The mouthwatering entry is full of red plums and cherries, while the middle palate of the wine softens with touches of cola and a smooth and silky mouthfeel. Notes of baking spices and mocha are left behind by the 12 months in American oak, leading to a lingering, luxe finish. Pairs well with margherita pizza, aged white cheddar, cheeseburger.
If You See Kay Red 2016 750mlThe wine is dark purple to the rim.Massive ripe black fruit and rich spice aromas that hit you right away. Dense blackberry and mocha flavors dominate the palate, the mouth-filling texture is powerful, yet elegant and creamy all the way through. The finish goes on forever, with hints of smoke and grilled meat lingering at the end. Kay is versatile with all kinds of foods, but pairs best with big, bold flavors.
Justin Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mlDark purple-ruby core with lighter rim and moderately stained, pronounced tears forming on the glass. Aromatic with ripe black and red cherry, blackcurrant and berry fruit, baking spice and sweet tobacco with red and black licorice, oak, cocoa and subtle camphor notes. Dry, nearly full bodied, with ripe black cherry, cassis and red fruit, baking spice and oak accents on entry with sustained ripe primary and mostly black fruit, dried autumn leaf, cocoa and a pleasant suggestion of camphor on the mid-palate into the finish. The finish is fresh and moderately long, showing lingering cherry and berry notes with oak and barrel spice nicely supported by fine, balanced tannins. The 2017 Justin Cabernet Sauvignon is an extremely versatile food pairing wine that makes it a great go-to red for many pairings ranging from a picnic of artisanal cheese and charcuterie, a Philly cheese steak sandwich, to a classic Entrecôte (steak) Bordelaise with pommes frites. It's a perfect wine to bring to a dinner or party for wine lovers.
Layer Cake Shiraz 2018 750mlFor our Shiraz, we pull from vineyards in McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley- from the sandy-soiled blocks on the sea coast of Gulf St. Vincent to the Terra Rosa- based, tiny-berried, wind-blown rolling hills in the Barossa Zone. The microclimates give us a broad array of flavors to blend into a complex, rich, full wine.
Cherry Pie Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir 2015 750mlDense ruby in color, the 2015 Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir shows aromas of crushed black cherry, cloves and vanilla with cola undertones.

On the midpalate are nuanced flavors of cranberries, cocoa powder and vanilla that carry through to a long finish.
Saxum Paderewski Vineyard 2010 1.5LOur second Paderewski bottling is firing on all cylinders. I backed off on the Syrah and used a lot more Mourvedre, and added a new component, Tempranillo. Yes I know, we are crazy! It's a Zinfandel / Mourvedre / Tempranillo / Syrah / Petite Sirah blend, and it shows its terrior beautifully. What you get from this wine is a taste of the Paderewski Vineyard. It is dark, brooding and muscular, while at the same time jam packed with tons of sweet fruits. There's even a spicy tannic side lurking in there, underneath those fruit flavors. Thanks to the cool, long growing season, it has a wonderful freshness and purity to it combined with great underlying tannins.
Argiano Non Confunditur 2017 750mlRuby red color. It reveals an exciting potency, with the innate gentles of Merlot creating a bridge between the evident earthiness of Sangiovese, the aromatic blackcurrant flavors of Cabernet and the warm red berries of Syrah. NC is a wine with a decisive, full-bodied character, smooth tannins and a persistent finish. A generous, rounded red wine, destined for short to medium ageing. Ideal with lots of typical Tuscan courses: bruschetta, crostini with liver, medium seasoned cheese, pasta with meat sauce, grilled vegetables.
Saxum Booker Vineyard 2010 1.5LOwned by Eric and Lisa Jensen, the Booker Vineyard is extremely steep and rocky with a mix of calcareous and silicious soils. We lease 2 acres of East facing Syrah that produce extremely concentrated fruit with great acidity, 1 acre of a North West face that we ferment whole cluster to produce a black tannic wine with great texture, and 1 acre of Mourvedre on a South slope that gives wonderful intensity and structure. The resulting blend is very concentrated, with great texture and tons of fruit and spice. We age it for 20-26 months mainly in new 350 Liter French hogshead barrels with extra thick staves. Our wines are never racked off their lees and are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Two Hands Ares Shiraz 2009 750mlDeep red and black with magenta rim. The nose is bright and intense, volumes of rich berries, plums and maraschino cherries. The aromas are continually evolving, also bringing cedary spice, subtle lavender, bitter chocolate, tar and fudge. The palate is currently very tight and restrained. 2009 brought wines of great flavor with elements of finesse and the 09 Ares is no exception. Juicy plums and blueberries dominate early to mid-palate, then underlying cedary chocolate notes emerge carrying the wine through to the late palate, tightening up again to a focused core of fruit, spice and tannin.
