    The wine showed a dark ruby color. Blackberry, cassis, leather and oak all arrived on the nose. Blackberry, cassis, mossy earth, currants and oak comprised the palate. The wine showed great structure and length. A winner through and through, this wine shows that reds other than just pinot noir are being made in Oregon on a world-class scale.

    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 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.

    WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS - "Sonoma Valley stalwart Sam Sebastiani returns to the winemaking fold with this small-production Sangiovese. A juicy study in robust, powerful tannins and fresh plum, it has a trace of anise on the back of the palate. Blended with 8% Petite Sirah and 4% Malbec, it spent a year in older French oak barrels and is a delicious California version of the Italian classic."

    La Chertosa is named for the magnificent 14th century Renaissance monastery in the Tuscan valley of Farneta, Italy where the Sebastiani ancestral roots began. Here Sam's grandfather Samuele Sebastiani learned from the monks to make wine in the "Old World" style. Samuele came to Sonoma in 1893, and found that Sonoma closely resembled faraway Farneta in three ways; it boasted a mild Mediterranean climate, had the same Mediterranean red soils and was blessed with gently sloping hillsides. He founded Sebastiani Winery in 1904, one of the first wineries in California and employed the time-honored techniques taught him by the Carthusian monks in Farneta, to create in Sonoma, the winemaking style Sam continues in crafting the harmonic flavors in La Chertosa wines.

    La Chertosa wines can be purchased at fine wine locations in California, Nebraska and Colorado or by visiting www.lachertosawines.com. La Chertosa will release its 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Chardonnay, a 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Sangiovese, and the 2014 Amador County Zinfandel shortly. La Chertosa was chosen by Wine Business Monthly a "Hot Brand of 2014" designation.

    Luna's 2013 Napa Valley Sangiovese begins with the perfumed aromas of violets, sweet vanilla and a hint white pepper.

    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 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!

    This is Tablas Creek’s ninth bottling of this traditional Mediterranean varietal, known principally in Sardinia, Corsica, and Northern Italy. It is also grown in the Rhone Valley (particularly Côtes de Provence) where it is known as Rolle. The Vermentino grape produces wines that are bright, clean, and crisp, with distinctive citrus character, refreshing acidity and surprising richness.

    When Tablas Creek imported their Châteauneuf du Pape clones, their contact in the French nursery service included the Vermentino because he believed it would thrive in the rocky limestone soils of Paso Robles. Tablas Creek has planted two small blocks of Vermentino, and it has indeed thrived here.

    The 2015 Vermentino has a classic Vermentino nose of white grapefruit, citrus leaf, and crushed rock, but then surprisingly generous and mouth-filling, like lemon-lime soda, with a briny sea spray minerality and a long, clean, luscious finish. Drink now and over the next few years.

    There's a reason everybody seems to be having fun while drinking Toby's wines…..they're fun, delicious wines that don’t cost a lot! Tobin James has one of the "must see" tasting rooms in Paso Robles, and visitors routinely make new friends with other visitors there! This Muscat is made in an off-dry style, but in no way cloying, and offers aromas of tangerine, white peach, honeysuckle, and a hint of soft spice. It has a rich, round mouth feel of citrus, melon and litchi, and is refreshing as a cool breeze on a hot summer day.

    In addition to being extremely dark and deep, the aromas and flavors of this exotic wine combine distinctive aspects of blueberry compote, brioche, hazelnut, sweet tobacco, allspice, 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.
