2015 Château Saint-Roch "Chimères" Côtes du Roussillon-Villages

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Giving up jammy notes of black raspberries, licorice, smoked herbs and chocolate, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres (aged in demi-muid and concrete vates) needs to be snatched up by savvy readers.

2017 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Rosé Top Pick!
2017 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Rosé

This central coast rosé wine is predominately Syrah with 65% of the blend. Similar to a classic Rhône-style rosé the Syrah juice soaks with the skins for a few hours before a gentle pressing in order to extract color for just the right pink hue. The remainder of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) and Cabernet Franc (10%) adding nuance of flavor and texture, however these varieties are delicately pressed immediately to lend more flavor then color. From there the rosé is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel at cool temperatures, and then rest... Read More »

Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is sourced from the Wood Vineyard along the appellation's Eastside Road, a relatively warm location that adds rich lemon chiffon and graham cracker to the whole. Creamy and velvety on the palate, it remains lush on the finish, tasting of baked peach pie. (VB)" (9/2017) Wine Spectator: "Tilts toward tropical fruit nuances, offering a zesty, citrusy mix of tangerine, nectarine and green apple flavors, with a pithy fruit-skin texture.

This is also sourced from Los Chacayes and matured in used oak barrels.

There is a bit more volume to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a velvety mid-palate while delivering better persistence on the ever-so-slightly rustic finish. This too is quite good."

2015 Xavier Vignon Vacqueyras

Giving up loads of black raspberries, plums, spice box and garrigue, it hits the palate with an expansive, rounded and ripe profile that just begs to be drunk. I expect it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and shine through 2025. (JD)" (12/2016)

Fernet Branca (750ml)

Wine Spectator: "Although many amari boast a secret formula comprising a multitude of ingredients-Fernet-Branca ($30) contains a total of 27, giving it a licorice, menthol and raisin character - certain flavors are well-trodden. Among them are anise, angelica, marjoram, cinnamon, cinchona, gentian, rosemary, saffron, fennel and cardamom, as well as mint and orange.

Seven Stills / Social Kitchen "Caviar Dreams" Brut IPA, California (16oz cans)

Say hello to the latest and greatest iteration of what an IPA can be! The Brut IPA uses a champagne yeast to essentially rip out all of the residual sugar in the beer, leaving you with a bone-dry, super crispy brew that fits in line with traditional West Coast IPA flavors perfectly. Brut IPA's are relatively new to the scene, only being produced and recognized for about a year (maybe?) at this point. But what really stood out to us is that the style of Brut IPA was actually created right here in San Francisco by Social Kitchen's own Kim Sturdavant. So... Read More »

2014 Charles Joguet "Les Varennes du Grand Clos" Chinon (Elsewhere $38)

He began to bottle his own wine and determined to keep the parcels separate, a practice that paid off, given the family’s prime holdings, like this 11.4-acre parcel at the base of a gravelly hillside. Today, the vines at this site date to 1962 and 1976 and are farmed with organic practices by Kevin Fontaine. They produce a sophisticated Chinon with red-currant briskness and a floral buzz.

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seemingly more Hermitage-like compared to the more Côte-Rôtie styled 2016, the 2015 Syrah Greywacke Vineyard Eddie's Patch offers in-your-face notes of blue fruits, graphite, ozone/lite gunpowder, and background meatiness. It’s a deep, serious wine that has a stacked mid-palate, plenty of tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s certainly one of the top Syrahs in this report, as well as from anywhere in California." (6/2018) 94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Eddie's Patch Greywacke Vineyard is a dense, powerful wine that brings together considerable fruit richness with the m ...Read More »

2017 Pavillon Blanc du Margaux, Bordeaux Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Decanter: "This is a wonderful Pavillon Blanc with great aromatics and powerful flavours that highlight how those cool summer nights have given real zip and freshness without losing intensity. Intense and concentrated flavours of quince, fleshy tropical fruits, nectarines and white peaches are combined with a mouthwatering tension that holds your interest and delivers a stunningly slatey, mineral finish. Margaux didn't lose anything to frost, so had a 22hl/ha yield after careful selection (a normal amount for the estate). It was an early harvest, from 28 August to ...Read More »

2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Some very rich and ripe red and dark berries here make for an impressive, engaging nose that has charming violet undertones. The palate is velvety and supple, while super smooth tannins deliver a long and plush, plum-soaked finish. Great wine and already drinking well. Try from 2023." (2/2018) 95 points Vinous: "One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Malescot Saint Exupéry is superb. Grilled herbs, smoke, black cherry, lavender, menthol and graphite literally explode from this glass. Huge swaths of tannin give the wine its shape and big, ample frame. Iron, smoke, gra ...Read More »

2018 Lagunitas "Dark Swan" Experimentally Hopped Sour Ale w/ Dark Red Wine Grapes, California (12oz)

"Observers of yestercentury once doubted the existence of the Dark Swan, stating the fair-feathered fowl was the only color of its kind. Explorers eventually upended that theory, shocking the world and shining light on the Dark. This beer might just do the same. It’s a sour ale fermented with dark red wine grapes, giving it its uniquely deep and rich purple hue. Then it received the signature Lagunitas treatment with a healthy dose of experimental dry hops. This might just shock your taste buds! There just really isn't anything else like the Dark Swan...... Read More »

2013 Acumen "Mountainside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice.* This new project from the heights of Atlas Peak involves Steve Matthiasson as both viticulturist and winemaker. It shines in bristling acidity, dusty tannin and a beautiful floral aroma of violet. Notes of chocolate, fig and cigar sit atop a pillowy, complex structure, while vanilla lingers on the finish." 17-18 points Jancis Robinson: "The 2013 was made with a majority of estate fruit from the Attelas Vineyard [on Atlas Peak] and a small portion of sourced fruit from around the valley floor Meaty aromatics squeezed through with notes of blackcurrant. The palate carri ...Read More »

2014 Acumen "Mountainside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winery Notes: "This full-bodied wine opens with aromas of violets, lavender, fresh rosemary, and espresso. On the palate we find flavors of black cherries, red plums, mountain blueberries, mission figs, and chocolate covered orange peel with sweet clay, freshly turned earth, and pencil shavings giving way to ripe, mouth-coating tannins on the long and powerful finish. An elegant and well-balanced combination of fruit, tannic structure, and acidity, this is our finest Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon to date."

Small Hand Foods Gum Syrup (8.5oz)

Mix up your cocktail repertoire with this natural emulsifier: "Also known by its French spelling, gomme, gum syrup is a sugar syrup with gum arabic, a resin from the Acacia tree, incorporated into it. Gum syrup fell out of favor with bartenders because it is difficult to make, and a straight simple syrup is both easier and cheaper. However, where both syrups add sweetness, gum syrup adds viscosity as well, giving a richer mouthfeel and weightier texture to cocktails. Organic cane sugar gives the syrup an amber color and a light molasses flavor. It is bes... Read More »

2016 Jaffurs "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Viognier

Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting with the whites, the 2016 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard was vinified and aged in equal parts stainless steel and neutral oak. It has classy notes of citrus, tangerine and honeysuckle as well as bright acidity, impeccable balance and a clean, classy finish. (JebDunnuck.com)" (8/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Giving lovely warm peach, honeysuckle and allspice scents with a waft of faded roses, the 2016 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard has a medium-bodied, refreshing palate with a good amount of spicy stone fruit flavors and a lively finish. (LPB)" (9/2017)

1995 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

97 points James Suckling: "I always loved this wine from the first time I tasted it in 1998. It has such purity and power yet it's reserved and beautiful. It's one of the best Calons ever. I drank a bottle with some friends in Manhattan last week and it was the wine of the evening. It was full-bodied with silky tannins and a focused and intense finish. Lots of currant and berry character and hints of dried spices. It's finally opening up and giving real pleasure now like so many 1995 Bordeaux at the moment." (6/2016) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Incredible nose of crushed berries, flowers, spices and nuts. Full ...Read More »

Amara Sicilian Amaro d'Arancia Rossa (750ml)

The Amara Amaro d'Arancia Rossa is easily the best amaro we have in stock, bringing new life to a category that was just beginning to get a bit saturated. Made in Sicily from blood oranges grown near the volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna, it's a citrus-dominated liqueur with only a slight bitterness that marries well with hints of baking spice. The finish is like the purest expression of citrus peel I've ever tasted in a spirit, giving the Amara a versatility that is simply off the charts. You can sip it after dinner as a digestivo, add soda water to make a sp... Read More »
