|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
The 2015 Hershey Sauvignon Blanc is unique in its balance of richness and vibrancy, while capturing the minerality of the vineyard despite the warm vintage. Aromas of lemon curd, gooseberry, ginger spice, and slate. The palate expresses Meyer lemon, crème brulee, ginger, nutmeg, and an evolved long finish. The vibrant acidity, density, and structure are what we love about this wine. This is a Sauvignon Blanc built for aging. It is showing well today but we expect this wine to develop through.

Booker Vineyard Ripper 22 2016
Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs 2016This 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 2017The 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. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity leads to a layered and lingering finish.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2017The 2017 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of ripe raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry along with hints of cedar and spice. The mid-palate is pleasant and round with flavors of plum, dark chocolate, dried fruit and a touch of toasted oak. The finish is rich and lingering. Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
Chateau-Margaux Margaux 1988 6LThe 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 2017Gorgeous 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 2016The 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 2017Dark 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 2018For 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 2016The 2016 Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir is lush with flavors of crushed black cherries and vanilla, with a subtle hint of cola undertones. The palate is full-bodied showing bright, bold, juicy red cherry and pronounced tart cranberries with an overall roundness supported by soft, integrated tannins that carry through to a long finish.
Roederer Estate BrutRoederer Estate Brut is crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. It is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavor.
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 2017Ruby 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.
A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir 2017The garnet red, 2017 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir showcases what A to Z does best. A vibrant, complex nose opens with floral, stone fruit and berry aromas - rose petal, violet, pomegranate, plum cherry, raspberry, black currant, boysenberry - that deepen with spice and wood notes - cinnamon, white pepper, thyme, vanilla, cedar, sandalwood, chocolate. Gentle oak aging adds definition supporting a delicious, harmonious balance between tannin, acid and fruit. The 2017 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir is a prime example of the benefits of working with fruit grown in all of the remarkable valleys of Western Oregon. A pretty, versatile wine that will pair neatly with most proteins cooked in a wide variety of styles, as well as earthy, and rustic vegetables, and bright-red to black fruits like cherry, cranberry, or plum.
Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2016Bright garnet. An immediate ascent of scent - no need to wait or to vigorously swirl this wine to tease out 'what lies beneath'! Dark berry fruits consistent to both varietal persuasions, (cabernet and shiraz), overtly courted by elements of ponzu, soy, sesame and dried shiitake mushroom. Senses are easily conveyed to a forest after rain - wet bracken, liberated mulch, damp soils. Naturally (new and used) oak plays a (minor) role in this fanciful aromatic romp. Flavours and textures akin to marbled Kobe beef and an earthy accompaniment of black liquorice root and anise. Structurally bold with little protruding - integrated, fine ... and has comfortably already "settled into place". 'Appetising' acidity - a non-intrusive and refreshing granita-like bite/attaque. Assam tea maltiness and tannins merge with impressions of wet slate, pencil lead/graphite ... no doubt somehow linked to earlier partial barrel fermentation and oak maturation. Needs time, as per most Bin 389's at release. Perhaps a little longer for this vintage? Our recommendation - your choice.

Falletto di Bruno Giacosa Barolo 2007Garnet red colour with orange reflections. Ample and complex bouquet with notes recalling truffle and liquorice. In the mouth it feels dry, full and velvety, unfolding a great personality.
Two Hands Ares Shiraz 2009Deep 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.
