  1. AEQUORIA 2019 VIOGNIER "SPANISH SPRINGS" SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY 750mL

    Item #: i_201480
    Bottle Size: 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 2018 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.

  4. HERMAN STORY 2018 PROPRIETARY WHITE "TOMBOY" SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 750mL

    Item #: i_274490
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Russell From is the owner, winemaker, and sole employee of Herman Story wines. Russell is talented in the cellar, and has a keen eye for what a vineyard can and cannot do. What does this mean?...It means you have one of the more talented winemakers from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara bringing some of the most exciting wines!

    We like to think of this wine as an alternative for California Chardonnay drinkers. It has the weight and heft of Chardonnay, but with a completely different set of flavors and tactile sensations. The TomBoy is 100% Viognier from Bien Nacido and Larner Vineyards in Santa Barbara County that was aged for 9 months in 100% new French oak.

    Russell writes his tasting notes like a story, and this page reads: "It's not like you were looking to go skydiving, but one look at her and the only answer was 'yes'. Now she's got you feeling like you're in freefall, making your day to day routine seem a little duller now. You want to feel the mist of the clouds on your face again as your heart races and you lips curl. Lemongrass, orange zest and apricot soaked brandy gets you planning your next encounter. Cli. camping, perhaps? And if you play your cards right, you may get her name this time."

  5. MINER 2018 VIOGNIER CALIFORNIA 750mL

    Item #: i_276932
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    What we love about the Rhône varietals is that they are just so versatile! Not only in regards to how well they thrive in almost any part of California, but also how well they pair with a variety of food! Winemaker Stacy Vogel combines old world techniques with modern technology so the wines reflect the unique characteristics of the individual vineyard, or terroir.

    Aromatically complex with citrus and honeysuckle notes on the nose and a plush feel on the palate, our Viognier consistently displays a fine balance of neutral acidity and intense concentration.

  7. PRIDE 2019 VIOGNIER SONOMA COUNTY 375Ml

    Item #: i_250030
    Bottle Size: 375ml
    **Please note, this is a half sized bottle
    Farming Viognier is no simple task. It is more susceptible than other grape varieties to vineyard woes including frost damage, springtime fungus, poor set and sunburn. To achieve a balanced vine canopy, Pride cane prunes in a way unique to their Viognier vines. The vineyard crew spends much more time in each acre of Viognier than they do in any acre of their Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruits of such labor in 2019 is a wine with gorgeous synergy between its various aromatic and structural components. The 2019 Viognier was fermented in entirely neutral French oak barrels (5 - 10 years old) and then aged on its lees, with periodic battonage, for four months prior to bottling on Valentine's Day of 2020.

    This luscious wine exudes fragrances of peach, lemon zest, nectarine, gardenia and dried rose petal. The palate is round and balanced, possessing a delightful tension between the unctuous classically-viognier character upfront and a refreshing tingly verve on the long finish.

  9. PRISONER 2018 PROPRIETARY WHITE "BLINDFOLD" CALIFORNIA 750mL

    Item #: i_245060
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    After years of amazing and envious success with their red blend, Prisoner has finally a white wine! Keeping in line with their roots, they have sourced from prominent, high quality vineyards throughout California, and this is downright fantastic! Created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is bold and intriguing. In establishing our own spin on a white blend, winemaker Chrissy Wittmann and her team sought out interesting Rhone and aromatic varietals that would nicely compliment a classic Chardonnay base. Through partnering with growers who are dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyards throughout California, the result is a wine that is complex and delicious.

    A blend of Chardonnay, Roussanne, Viognier, and Muscat, Blindfold was created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, and is equally bold and intriguing. The wine possesses inviting aromas of lychee, stone fruit, citrus, apple pie, and peach. Full and balanced with a lengthy finish.

  10. PROGENY 2014 PROPRIETARY WHITE "PREMIERE NAPA VALLEY WHITE" MOUNT VEEDER 750ml

    Item #: i_252000
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The wines produced for the Premiere Napa Valley auction are the pinnacle of achievement in the Napa Valley, and it serves as a means not only to promote the Napa Valley, but the talents of vineyard managers and winemakers. Hi-Time attends this trade-only auction every February, and we secure wines that show exceptional quality vis-à-vis their price points. Progeny’s offering was the best white wine we had tasted at the auction in several years, and we just had to get our hands on it! Following the success of their winery located on Howell Mountain, Paul Wools and Betty O’Shaughnessy-Wools set their sights on Mount Veeder, located in the western mountains of the Napa Valley. While this new site is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (just like their Howell Mountain property), they also planted several Rhône varietals, which they have found to give the wines exotic bouquets. They soon realized that the white Rhône grapes were not just thriving on their property, but the final wines were superb! Winemaker Sean Capiaux (who has also worked at Peter Michael, Jordan and Pine Ridge) comprised a unique blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier fermented in a mix of French oak barrels, concrete and stainless steel, with no secondary (malolactic) fermentation. The wine is bright and clean, with aromas of honeycomb, wet granite, oyster shells and sea spray before moving to apricots and orchard fruits. This is actually a white for the decanter, because after 20-30 minutes of air time the wine gains in weight and richness, and flavors of pear, Fuji apple, a hint of oak and toasted almonds appear. The versatility of this wine is amazing; drink it immediately upon opening and it is a perfect match for shellfish and white fish. Let it breath and it will pair nicely with lobster bisque and chicken dishes. It’s almost like it’s a perfect mix between a white Rhône and a Chablis. Wonderful!
