  1. CAROL SHELTON 2017 ZINFANDEL "ROCKY RESERVE" ROCKPILE 750mL

    Item #: i_277784
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    The name Rocky Reserve comes from the deep red, rocky soils of the Florence Vineyard, 1400 feet above Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley. This is a more elegant and restrained Zin, worthy of five or more years of cellaring, though it is packed with fragrant black and blue berry fruits.Nice dark-red in color, big blueberry-blackberry fruit, spicy-chocolatey oak, nicely focused acidity enhances mineral flavors, elegantly structured tannins for aging, super plush long finish!

    Item #: i_232890
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Named for the old grist mill that was found on the property, Grist sits pretty at 1000 ft. elevation on Bradford Mountain in the Dry Creek Valley AVA. The site was originally planted 100 years ago, and has since been replanted in the early 1970s. Farming here is CCOF Organic. The 58 acres under vine are head trained and cane pruned, and have spectacular views of the fog line driving in 15 miles west from the Pacific Ocean. Between Grist and the beachfront lie 15 miles of mountain lions, deer, and unspoiled forest.

  4. RIDGE 2018 PROPRIETARY RED "GEYSERVILLE" SONOMA COUNTY 750mL

    Item #: i_254500
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 96
    Wine Spectator: 93
    Vinous Media: 94
    Jeb Dunnuck: 95 Points
    A few weeks ago, we e-mailed out the Ridge Pagani Zin. Now we were blown away by the quality of the wine, but the demand from you, our customers, showed that we were not alone in loving the wines from Ridge. So, in keeping the good wines coming, we have just secured an allotment of Ridge's Geyserville Zinfandel-blend, and this wine has scored even higher than the Pagani that sold out a few weeks ago!

    Ridge has made the Geyserville as a single-site Zinfandel every year since 1966! The grapes are grown in three adjoining vineyards on a defined stretch of gravelly soil on the western edge of Alexander Valley. The vines on the property range in age from 15 - 125 years, making them some of the oldest vines in California! Carignane and Petite Sirah are interplanted in the vineyard, a method called mixed-blacks, and are fermented along with the Zinfandel for greater harmony. Both primary and secondary fermentations occur naturally (they are not inoculated), and the wine is aged entirely in American oak barrels, which is the historic norm for Zinfandel.

    This Geyserville bottling has every bit of pedigree and excitement as the Pagani bottling, yet the Geyserville has earned 96 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, making it one of the highest scoring Zins or Zin-blends of the vintage! Grab it now while you can!

    ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2018 Geyserville is a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 10% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet. It's incredibly alluring, offering up layers of warm, tricolored fruits and loads of spicy accents on the nose, with a dusty, mineral-tinged undercurrent that adds to its appeal. In the mouth, it's generously fruited and fantastically juicy, its silt-like tannins providing just enough support, and it finishes very long and layered. 9,900 cases produced."

    JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS - "A wine that always delivers, the 2018 Geyserville from Ridge comes all from a single vineyard in the Alexander Valley and checks in as 68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 10% Petite Sirah, and the rest Alicante Bouschet. It has a big, cedary bouquet of red and black plums, sandalwood, potpourri, and Asian spices that develops and fills out nicely with time in the glass. This carries to a more medium-bodied Zinfandel that has wonderful purity of fruit, present yet ripe tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. This structured yet ethereal example of this cuvee ranks with the finest vintages to date. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years."

    ANTONIO GALLONI 94+ POINTS - "The 2018 Geyserville is an infant. That much is obvious, especially in this lineup of otherwise more settled 2018s. Ripe Zinfandel flavors drive the overall profile. A blast of wild cherry, leather, tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol and spice hit the palate first, followed by swaths of tannin and a touch of new oak that suggest the wine still needs time to come together. Readers should be in no rush. I am not sure the 2018 will ever be truly refined, as it is quite burly today. Aeration helps to some degree. The fermentations at Geyserville were slow to start and slow to finish. That longer time of extraction comes through in potent tannins that will likely always mark the wine."

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS -"Robust yet brooding, with multilayered black plum, licorice and Asian five-spice powder flavors that build richness toward big, briary tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. Best from 2022 through 2030"

  5. RIDGE 2018 PROPRIETARY RED "LYTTON SPRINGS" SONOMA COUNTY 750mL

    Item #: i_254590
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 96
    ANTONIO GALLONI 96 POINTS - "The 2018 Lytton Springs is magnificent. Elegant, layered and so complete, the 2018 has a lot to offer, but it needs time to fully come together. Sweet red cherry, red plum, blood orange, spice, mint and rose petal open up in the glass. Bright acids and beams of tannin give the wine its vibrant energy. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2018 for at least a few years. Wow!"

  6. SEGHESIO 2017 ZINFANDEL "CORTINA" DRY CREEK VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: i_259000
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Always one of Seghesio's most elegant and polished expressions of Zinfandel, Cortina has a bold flavor profile while being balanced and lithe on the palate. Notes of boysenberry, mulberry, cedar and clove complement the wine's finely integrated tannins. A perfect partner to this wine would be a rack or leg of lamb. The richness of the wine and the combination of berry and spice notes would meld perfectly with the rich and slightly gamey flavor of lamb.
