ROBERT PARKER'S THE WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "Altamura is one of the few California wineries that continues to make Sangiovese, and with good reason. Read More...
It has always been one of the best. Coming from a 5-acre parcel of 28-year-old vines and aged 24 months in neutral oak, The 2009 Sangiovese is a full-bodied effort with abundant character. Lots of jammy strawberry and kirsch-like aromas intermixed with new saddle leather and tobacco leaf jump from the glass of this velvety textured, lush wine. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."

Every so often, one of our wine distributors bring us a wine that throws us for a loop...this is one of those times! Mueller-Thurgau is a cross of two different varieties.This was Read More...
done by Hermann Mueller from the town of Thurgau (yes, coming up witha name is that easy!), and as of 2006, it is the second most widely planted grape in Germany, yet is also planted in Austria, Italy, U.S.A., and Australia, among others. It is hard to think a grape this obscure would actually light a fire under us, but this wine offers so much for so little money, that it is actually wine-of-the-month material. Heck,even one of our senior wine staff members said it was the best wine value he has tasted all year!

Stainless steel fermented at a low 45 degrees for freshness and maximumvarietal character, this is a vibrant, zippy, and mineral-laced wine with aromas of greenapples, kaffir limes, and white flowers, while the flavors show star fruit, lime, passionfruit, and granny smith apple. Clean, and with good acidity, this is an amazing value,and might possible become your new house white.

Winemakers Notes - "Ruby in color with blackberry, cherry, cedar & spice notes with a long finish this wine reminds some of ‘cherries on steroids’ or ‘crushed violets, pencil shavings, and summer sweat’. 66% Sangiovese, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon."

Palmina is a passion project of husband-and-wife team Steve and Chrystal Clifton. Sharing a love for all things Italian, they have crafted the Palmina wines to be full of complexity Read More...
while able to complement and enhance food. They utilize traditional Italian techniques for grape-growing and winemaking practices along with a new world attitude to produce wine of distinction. Their Santa Barbara Nebbiolo was aged in mostly used oak barrels to allow the wines to demonstrate their beautiful flavor nuances and achieve a texture that is balanced. A come-hither rich ruby color first invites you to the glass and encourages a swirl. A first sip delivers a textural yin-yang of bright acidity and dusty tannins that envelop and transport flavors of mulberry and tea, red plum skin and dried cherry, blackcurrant and cassis. This is an elegantly proportioned, this is fresh enough on its own, shows great with food and might just have its hooks in you after you are done!

“Dolcetto” translates to “little sweet one”- not because it is a sweet wine (it is perfectly dry) - because it is a friendly and easygoing grape to work with and so pleasurable in Read More...
the glass. Even Dolcetto’s hue speaks to its easy going nature, with a deep and bright ruby color inviting a sip. The nose is spicy and very berry, with a hint of spice mingling with blackberry aromas that waft from the glass. On the palate, there is a perception of hard-candy sweetness that mingles with a beautifully balanced acidity and soft tannin structure. Concentrated black raspberry and plum preserve flavors are interlaced with a subtle earthy minerality that leaves a lasting impression of raspberry, a hint of “red vine” licorice and toasted almonds at last sip. Dolcetto is the perfect picnic wine, a delightful interlude between white and heavier red wines at a multi-course dinner and the ultimate complement to pizza, which is our featured recipe! Enjoy in its youth and serve either at cellar temperature or even slightly chilled.

although this isn’t even California’s strong point, these Italian-varietal wines have made their mark here at the store.

Palmina is a Californian celebration of the rich, wonderful lifestyle and attitude toward food, wine, friends, and family that exists in Italy. Owner/winemaker Steve Clifton (also of Brewer-Clifton fame) took an interest during a trip to Italy to visit family, and after returning, he found himself working at an Italian restaurant in Laguna Beach. Today, he and his wife Chrystal, who studied at the University of Bologna and is fluent in Italian, have shown for several years that they make some of the tastiest Cal-Ital wines in California!

Truly a mélange of flavors, textures and nuances of the vineyards, and the very small and cool 2012 growing season. Pale, pale gold in color, this Pinot Grigio is crystal clear and brilliant in nature. A bouquet of citrus peel, wild arugula and honeysuckle tease the senses. A sip astonishes with crisp and refreshing acidity delivering white peach, Bosc pear and Fuyu persimmon flavors, all mingling with a stony, flinty character. Beautifully balanced, the wine lingers on the palate with nuances of nectarine and almond. This is a firm, focused wine with a beautifully dry finish that acts as its own worldwide ambassador for the perfect Pinot Grigio climate and soils of Santa Barbara County.

leather and wet granite. Mouth-filling and very inviting, its finely-grained tannins conjure plush black velvet. This wine is fantastic with food, and will age graciously for up to 15 years. Tofanelli has become one of the more respected vineyards in the Napa Valley. Their fruit goes to such luminaries as Turley, Orin Swift, and Neyers. Located just one mile south of Calistoga, the gravelly loam soil and dry farming techniques (read: no irrigation) lead to grapes of concentrated colors and flavors. Above all, Tofanelli uses no pesticides or herbicides.
