Catena Zapata Alta Chardonnay 2014The Catena Alta Chardonnay shows an intense green-yellow color with golden highlights. The nose offers ripe white fruit aromas such as pears and peaches that are interwoven with delicate citrus and floral notes, such as Jasmine. The palate shows rich and concentrated ripe pear, apple and apricot flavors with a light note of minerality. The wine finishes long and complex with crisp, mineral acidity. Pair this full-bodied Chardonnay with full-bodied fish like sockeye salmon and tuna, any dish featuring Mousseline sauce, or an old-school classic like Lobster Thermidor.
Sine Qua Non Piranha Waterdance Syrah 2014We are not working on a grape growing or winemaking THESIS. Instead we want all of our efforts to be reflected in every glass of SQN. And so our goal has been and always will be to understand Mother Nature's often oblique ways and (re)act accordingly so that we may create wines that express all that Nature has so generously given us. And all that this beautifully warm and sunny place called California has to offer. Wines that speak to the heart and the mind both. Wines that are ripe and flavorful, but also graceful and balanced. Wines that are perfectly enjoyable and delicious young, but that will age and show a new and interesting personality with each passing year. Wines that surprise with each sip and where the last drop - not the first sip - was the best one. Wines that make you smile and happy and appreciate all that is lovely. Wines that make you sense they were crafted by people who loved making them.

Domaine Georges Roumier Musigny 2006
Sigalas Santorini 2016Straw-blonde color with light shades of green. Subtle nose of citrus fruit. Excellent structure, full-bodied with rich mineral character and crisp acidity with a long aftertaste. Serve with fish, seafood and white meats with light sauces.
Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Sourced from several regions within Napa including some valley floor and a bit of hillside fruit. Following the blow-out success of the first effort, Doug has continued to put together a stellar follow-up throughout the years. This is very impressive juice that continues to offer tremendous value for Napa Cab!
Venge Scout's Honor 2015This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super-ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coating deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra long finish with a touch of barrel tannin at the end. 2015 Scout's Honor is certainly a generous mouthful of red wine that we recommend be opened and enjoyed immediately upon release. Cellared correctly it will age for 5 to 8 years.
Erna Schein Front Man 2012Front Man returns to the stage in 2012. From the earthy nose full of toasty oak and sweet fruit, to the luscious palate full of chocolate-covered blueberries, walnut liqueur, tobacco and nutmeg, this Merlot-based beauty hits all of the right notes. The texture is lush and creamy with bright acidity that plays on and on, and never drags.
Two Hands Lily's Garden Shiraz 2014Colour: Deep, dark red with a black core. Aroma: Deep and complex with notes of spiced plums, blueberries, mulberries, violets and mocha. Palate: Full bodied but wears its weight with charm and grace. Bright blue-fruits (think plums, blueberries, mulberries) with a lovely floral overlay which gives the palate some pop and energy. Rich through the mid-palate with chewy dense tannins. Finishes with lots of energy and persistence. Notes of mocha and spice cake emerge through the finish.
Two Hands Bella's Garden Shiraz 2014Colour: Deep, dark red with a black core. Bright purple hue around the meniscus. Aroma: Bright aromas of blueberries, blackberry and black cherry. Floral aromas of acacia flowers weave through the wine. Notes of game, pepper and nougat add depth and complexity. Palate: Full bodied but very buoyant. Bright flavours are lifted and accented by notes of fresh blue and blackberry with hints of plum. Creamy complexity through the palate adds depth and interesting texture. Palate has great depth and a coating nature but doesn't feel heavy. Tannins start mid-palate and leave a lovely rolling chewy nature. Spicy through the finish with vanilla and sweet baking spices. Classic Barossa notes of coal dust weave through the late palate which is both long and complex.
