    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.

    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!

    "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 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.

    Among Tuscany's oldest and most prestigious wine families, Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari (father and son) teamed with Allen Shoup to produce a wine that is true to Washington State's terroir with plenty of Italian character.

Saggi is one of six distinct red wines from the Long Shadows Vintners Collection. Dark cherry aromas and raspberry flavors combine with a hint of nutmeg and smoky earthiness. An elegant entry in the front of the mouth reveals refined tannins with focused concentration, enhanced by the wine's rich and supple mouth feel.

    Growing and producing world class Sangiovese is not for the faint of heart. Rattlesnakes, thistle, and America's most unique clone of Sangiovese are all that thrive atop Rattlesnake Hill on Seghesio Family Vineyards' Home Ranch. The shallow topsoil and virtually impenetrable volcanic shale are the perfect foil in taming this vigorous varietal into producing intensely flavored grapes. The clone, planted in 1910 by Edoardo Seghesio in America's oldest Sangiovese vineyard, produces small-berried, loosely formed clusters.

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.
