Elouan Pinot Noir 2016
Rich, dark and intense fruit flavors take top billing in this 2016 Elouan Pinot Noir, a wine that beautifully reflects the warm and dry growing season. Dark ruby in color, the wine powers up with aromatics of plum pie, mixed-berry jam and smoky, game-bird characteristics that set the stage for flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and smoked bacon. The balance is excellent, with solid structure, superb depth and concentration, rich tannins, and a nice smoky, earthy finish.

Mount Peak Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon 2014A muscular and intense wine with deep tannins, a rich mouthfeel, sumptuous fruit and tremendous potential for aging. The forceful, concentrated flavors include ripe currants, blackberry and cherry layered with hints of anise and toasted cedar, all echoing through a long, plush finish that is framed with notes of sweet cream.
Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016Dark ruby red in color with satisfying aromas of boysenberry, dark cherry and mulberry along with delicate hints of baking spices, dill, cola, nutmeg and vanilla. On the palate, bold flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, cherry and super-ripe strawberry are uplifted by gentle notes of cocoa powder and sweet fig for a generous and silky mouthfeel. This tremendously complex and broad-shouldered wine finishes with grace.
Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif 2016Petite Sirah wines are typically deep, dark, rich, and inky, with concentrated flavors of blueberry, plum, backberry, black pepper, sweet baking spice, leather, and cigar box, and chewy, chocolatey tannins. Notes of vanilla and coconut can be found in examples with significant amounts of new oak. Petite Sirah's full body and bold fruit make it an ideal match for barbecue, especially brisket with a slightly sweet sauce, and other rich meat dishes. The variety's heavy tannins call for fatty protein and strong flavors that won't get drowned out by the wine.
Caymus Red Schooner Voyage 6This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains, shipped chilled to Napa Valley and produced with the same techniques as our Caymus Cabernet. Falling outside standard labeling rules, it does not include a vintage date but is known by the voyage from which it traveled (Voyage 6 is the 2015 vintage). Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine is powerful and supple, with flavors of French oak and soft tannins.
Pahlmeyer Jayson Red 2016The 2016 Jayson Red Wine displays deep ruby to garnet color in the glass. Aromas of cherry and blackberry compote, with just a hint of Jordan almonds, gives way to a deep, dark fruit palate, where dense tannins and focused acidity support the rich fruit over a silky, gratifying finish. Oak aging adds notes of baking spice and cardamom. This is a balanced wine with great depth, made to be enjoyed upon release.
Schrader Cellars Double Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon 2016The 2016 vintage of Double Diamond opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast, and oak spice with notes of herbs, pine cone, and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor. The tannin structure makes this a great wine to enjoy upon release, but it will also mellow nicely for the next two to six years.
Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2017It was only natural that we would make a Pinot Noir in addition to Chardonnay. The Santa Lucia Highlands is well-known as the perfect home for both these varietals. Grapes ripen slowly, enabling us to make wine of heightened complexity, with layers of aromas and flavors. We named Mer Soleil after the two forces of nature - the sea and sun - that shape this singular character, and they are every bit as powerful in creating our Pinot as our Chardonnay.
Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir 2017Bright ruby red with fresh, vibrant aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry jam and cedar box accented by rich floral notes. This wine is juicy and generous on the palate with sweet cherry, field-ripened strawberry, cranberry and just-baked gingerbread. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel. Fine grained tannins provide an authentic textural distinction and structural depth.
Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" - a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay 2017The 2017 offers lush, luxurious aromas and flavors of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple and flint all held together with effortless structure, elegant balance, and energy that comes from pure, Chablis-like acidity.
Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015The 2015 vintage was one of our earliest, bookended by cold, wet weather in the spring that impacted fruit-set and by a warm, dry ripening season in the fall. Crop size was smaller overall, but quality was excellent. We had very small berries and loose clusters that led to even ripening and intensely concentrated flavors. There was a great skin to juice ratio that favored high-quality tannin extraction and concentration. The wines from 2015 show a good balance between freshness and power.
Legit Cabernet Sauvignon 2013#26 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019 The wine has a deep ruby red color. The nose displays hints of green pepper, licorice and graphite melted with oak vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a ripe fruit palate, LEGIT has the potential to age for a long period of time, which is typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the Castelnuovo Berardenga Area.
Chateau Fonbadet Pauillac 2016

Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2018An opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs-thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.

Delas Freres Châteauneuf du Pape Haute Pierre 2016The color is a deep garnet red. The nose of the "Haute Pierre" has strong spicy aromas that reveal a rich, powerful body that is delicate, yet has a tightly-knit tanninc framework. On the palate, the wine is rich and unctuous, revealing intense licorice-like flavors. It can easily be kept 10 years or more. Ideal with the traditional French and "Provencale" type-stews and meats.

Black cherry compote is both the featured aroma and flavor on the palate, but there are hints of blackcurrant. This combination gives Earthquake Cabernet Sauvignon a taste that is still 100% cabernet: infused with just the right amount of anise, cocoa and tobacco leaf to give it character. The French oak casks it is aged in shine through in the charcoal and smoky notes that mix on the finish.

This wine is priced well enough that you should have no issues pairing it with a flavorful meat or pasta. You also can add it to your cellar for the next five years.
Conundrum White 2016A light straw color, the 2016 vintage features scents of honeysuckle, wildflowers and lemon blossoms, layered with star fruit, honeydew and a trace of flinty gunpowder.
