  • AEQUOREA 2014 PINOT NOIR "SEAFARER" CENTRAL COAST 750mL

    Item #: 201460

    While he has become known for his insanely delicious Petite Sirahs from Paso Robles, winemaker Aaron Jackson has recently expanded his portfolio and added some new flavors! AEQUOREA - which means “of the sea” in Latin - is focused on single vineyard wines from extreme coastal vineyards amidst San Luis Obispo County. In addition to these wines, each year Aaron Jackson also produce the Seafarer Pinot Noir as a special cuvee that brings together the elements from each of his vineyards. The goal is to create a wine that is more about overall texture and depth than individual site expression.

    As always, Seafarer is the only vineyard blend Pinot Noir Aaron produces, bringing together fruit from all his coastal sites. The goal is to create a wine that is more about overall texture and depth than individual site expression. Based largely in the Stromsoe vineyard in Cayucos, along with Riven Rock (Cambria), Spanish Springs (Pismo Beach) and Derby West (San Simeon), the 2013 Seafarer is his favorite to date. The aromatics are intense - redolent of dried cranberry, red apple skin, white pepper, and Earl Grey tea. The palate is bright and vibrant, with a core of dark red fruit, uplifted spice, grated chocolate, roasted nuts, dried orange rind, and toasty oak. Only 225 cases produced!

  • AEQUORIA 2016 VIOGNIER SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY 750mL

    While he has become known for his insanely delicious Petite Sirahs from Paso Robles, winemaker Aaron Jackson has recently expanded his portfolio and added some new flavors! AEQUOREA - which means "of the sea" in Latin - is focused on single vineyard wines from extreme coastal vineyards amidst San Luis Obispo County.

    Making Viognier is always such a challenge for Aaron, in that he aims for a style so much different than what is typically produced in California. Instead, he strives to make a Viognier that showcases what can be done with the variety on the extremes of the coast where it struggles to ripen. At only 2 miles from the ocean in Pismo Beach, Spanish Springs is on the edge of where Viognier can be grown. Super aromatic, floral, and loaded with brightness and minerality, the 2016 features a racy profile of white stone fruit, snappy citrus, freshly cut pineapple, and an amazing finish. The strong beam of natural acidity gives it freshness for days.

    PETER LEIM 2 STARS-"Half of this is from Les Champs Boutons in Avize and fermented in tank, while the other half is from similar terroir in Bionnes and Buzons in Cramant, just 100 meters away, and vinified in barrel. It feels unusually concentrated and ripe for the vintage, showing a subtle richness and depth on the palate, yet it’s held within a sleekly chalky frame, its salty, briny minerality increasing in intensity on the finish. It’s a superb edition of this cuvée, warranting at least another five to six years of post-disgorgement age to allow it to show its best. Last tasted: 1/17."

    Ancient Peak's 2016 Sauvignon Blanc opens with bright aromas of peach, guava, citrus and wet stone. A round, soft texture envelopes the palate with luscious flavors of pear and tropical fruit, all underlain by a subtle minerality. The roundness yields to raciness on the finish, with pitchperfect acidity and lingering notes of lime zest.

  • ANTHILL FARMS 2015 CHARDONNAY "PEUGH" RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: 201250

    This head-trained vineyard sits smack dab in the middle of the Russian River Valley, spread out on the plains that make up the northwestern outskirts of Santa Rosa. The faded brown soils, known as Huichica loam, offer an excellent mix of low fertility and rapid drainage. Most notable about the site, however, is the age of the vines: we don't know it exactly, but the best indication is that they were planted in the early 1940s, making it some of the oldest producing Chardonnay in the state.

    This wine is tauter still than the 2014; upon opening the wine, the nose is initially reluctant to reveal itself. With air and a little warmth, notes of fragrant iris and caraway seed emerge, buffeted by a hint of dry lanolin. The palate opens to reveal waves of cool white pepper, pink jasmine, and a flirtatious, juicy pungency. Precise acids guide the wine to a refreshing finish. Drink now through 2024. Alc. 13.4%

  • ARBALEST 2015 BORDEAUX

    From the highly regarded winemaker from Hartwell, Realm, Kata and Fait Main (Teeter Totter) comes an absurd value. The inaugural release of the Arbalest is a project involving winemaker Benoit Touquette and importer/distributor Kimberly Jones. Our French and California wine buyers sampled this wine together last week and absolutely loved it. After tasting it, we knew we had to bring it into the store and quickly snapped up every single bottle that was available. This lush and juicy full-bodied wine boasts an abundance of dark fruit flavors and incredible texture with silky smooth tannins.

    The idea of Arbalest was born when Benoit and Kimberly were traveling in France. They tasted a lot of wine in Bordeaux and both felt they could improve the quality of reasonably priced wine from the region. Benoit drew on his relationships in Bordeaux and found a source for high quality grapes. Benoit then did what he does best. He made this wine in his style consistent with his other wines, but kept the price amazingly low.

    Benoit was born in Bordeaux where he was surrounded by family and friends in the wine business. He was amazed at the passion people had for wine and soon felt it himself. He graduated from Bordeaux University with a Master’s Degree in Oenology and learned from one of Bordeaux's greatest, Michel Rolland. After some time, Benoit decided it was time for a new challenge and decided to go to Napa. There he worked with another legendary winemaker, Andy Erickson, whose resume includes such iconic estates as Dalla Valle, Screaming Eagle and Spottswoode.

    The mentorship of Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson was transformative for Benoit. He has learned well and clearly knows how to make delicious wines. In the spirit of full disclosure, we have to admit this wine possesses the character of Touquette’s full-bodied Napa reds. The quality of the perfectly ripened fruit flavors and creamy texture in this Bordeaux blend made us feel like we were enjoying a much higher priced wine. It does have a touch of minerality you might encounter in Bordeaux, but this is a dead ringer for a high quality Napa wine.

    Enjoy the inaugural release of this limited production wine while you can.

    Arbalest displays aromas of blue florals, blackberry, boysenberry and plum. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied with well- integrated tannins and flavors mirroring the nose. Fresh dark fruit including blueberry and creme de cassis are followed by beautiful hints of umami on the mid palate. The finish is seamless and persistent. Drink now through 2022.

  • ARKENSTONE 2014 SAUVIGNON BLANC "NVD" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: 203390

    Arkenstone sits on a rocky and rugged slope high atop Howell Mountain, looking down into the Napa Valley. The vineyards change in elevation to the tune of 250 feet, and the soils are a mix of Tufa, iron rich red clay, and abundant rocky areas. Even though proprietors Ron and Susan Krausz planted their first vines on the property in 1998, it wasn't until several years later that their first "true" vintage was bottled.

    With the help of the talented and famous winemaker Philippe Melka, Ron and Susan tasted many wines and blends from their property for many years. Each year, they listened to which techniques in the vineyard translated to better wine. Again, each year, they fine-tuned these practices until they were sure the vineyard was well-established, trained properly, and were producing world-class wines.

    Enter Sam Kaplan; Arkenstone Vineyard Manager and Winemaker since their commercial release. Sam has, since day one at Arkenstone, farmed the vineyards organically. Sam is exceptionally knowledgeable, and not only uses Arkenstone's state-of-the-art winemaking facility to its fullest, but he also knows when to be "hands off", and let the vineyard's own characteristics shine; terroir, if you will.

    When Arkenstone decided to expand their Sauvignon Blanc program, they found a site high in the Eastern/ Mountains of Napa Valley that sits just above the fog at elevations mirroring that of Arkenstone's Howell Mountain Estate. Over the course of a couple years they established an amazing block of Sauvignon Blanc using the same clone as Arkenstone's Estate. Utilizing the same winemaking technique that makes Arkenstone's Estate Sauvignon Blanc so special, and Winemaker, Sam Kaplan’s oversight in the vineyard, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc is a stunning addition Arkenstone's family of wines.

    ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Starting off the reds, the 2014 Pinot Noir Deja Vu is a fruit-filled, textured beauty. It offers tons of black raspberry, toasted spice, earthy underbrush and hints of oak in a medium to full-bodied, plump, ripe and textured style. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The 2014 Pinot Noir Deja Vu is bold, dark and juicy. Black cherry, plum, game, licorice and new leather meld together in the glass. The 2014 is forward and supple, but in the mid-weight approachable style of the vintage."

    This wine is very expressive of smoky espresso, cacao, raspberry, pomegranate, rose petals, and graham cracker. The fruit on the palate is juicy in a refreshing kind of way with playful dusty tannins. There is an easiness to the way the wine drinks that is soothing and comfortable like the way your favorite old pair of leather boots feel on your feet.

    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Bright and polished, with expressive black cherry and orange zest aromas and tightly focused, layered raspberry and stony mineral flavors that finish with vibrant acidity. Drink now through 2021."

    ROBERT PARKER 99 POINTS - "The five separate single vineyards that Bill Harlan has under long-term contract continue to perform at first growth quality levels. They generate between 500 and 600 cases of these single-vineyard wines that all represent distinctive and separate micro-climates of Napa Valley."

    "The 2013 St. Eden is absolutely mind-blowing, with notes of blackcurrant liqueur and licorice as well as hints of Asian soy and lead pencil. Wonderful fruit that hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, silky but noticeable tannins, and a big, earthy, rich, full-throttle, majestic finish of close to a minute add to this wine’s compelling personality. It should drink well for at least 30-40 years."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 97+ POINTS - "The 2013 St. Eden is absolutely stunning. Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2013 exudes class. Creamy, layered and silky on the palate, the 2013 possesses magnificent depth and intensity to the point the tannins are nearly buried. Dark stone fruit, licorice, spice and menthol are some of the many notes that build into the sensual finish. This is a tremendous showing."

They generate between 500 and 600 cases of these single-vineyard wines that all represent distinctive and separate micro-climates of Napa Valley."

    "The perfect 2013 Vecina offers up notes of pen ink, scorched earth, espresso, blackcurrant liqueur and blackberries. It is a fabulously great wine, with supple, well-integrated tannin, decent acidity, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, with extraordinary purity and richness. This is an amazing wine to drink over the next 50 years, although I would probably suggest cellaring for five or more at present."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 95-98 POINTS - "A veritable explosion of aromas, flavors and textures emerges from the 2013 Vecina. Rich, explosive and intense, the 2013 is a head-turning wine endowed with magnificent richness, power and unctuosity. Dark red cherry, smoke, licorice, scorched earth and game are some of the signatures in this regal, towering Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a tremendous expression of Vine Hill Ranch, one of the very best sites in all of Napa Valley."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 97 POINTS - "One of the many highlights in this tasting, the 2013 Melbury is fabulous. All the Melbury signatures of place - intense red fruit and floral notes in particular - are very much in evidence. There are more than enough supporting tannins and acidity in the background to ensure many years of exceptional drinking."

They generate between 500 and 600 cases of these single-vineyard wines that all represent distinctive and separate micro-climates of Napa Valley."

    "The brilliant 2013 Melbury ratchets up the level of extract, with an opaque purple color, dense blueberry liqueur-like notes along with white flowers, licorice, and camphor followed by a full-bodied, incredibly seamless, concentrated, multidimensional wine. With its amazing depth and richness, while accessible now, it probably won’t hit its stride for another 5-7 years and last 30-35."

    "Much more structured, muscular, tannic and intense is the 2013 Quella, which exhibits blackberry notes, licorice, some truffle, graphite and damp earth, huge fruit, a muscular, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long, moderately tannic finish. Forget it for a few years and drink it over the following 25-30+ years."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 95+ POINTS - "The 2013 Quella is a powerhouse. Graphite, smoke, game, tobacco, incense and licorice, along with beams of imposing tannin, give the Quella its intense, brooding personality. Readers will have to be especially patient here, as the tannins are forbidding. The 2013 is a fabulous Quella."

They generate between 500 and 600 cases of these single-vineyard wines that all represent distinctive and separate micro-climates of Napa Valley."

    "The 2013 Pluribus is the finest wine I've tasted from this vineyard to date, capturing the vintage's extraordinary purity and richness, with a multidimensional mouthfeel and incredible notes of blue and black fruits, charcoal, graphite and white flowers. This profound effort should hit its prime in another 5-10 years and evolve for 30-40 or more."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 96+ POINTS - "The 2013 Pluribus is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Today, the tannins are forbidding, but there is plenty of fruit lurking in the background just waiting to emerge. A host of purplish-toned fruit, lavender, mint and violet infuse the finish. The Pluribus is the wine that feels the most marked by the natural structure of this vintage."
