2014 Shafer "Red Shoulder Ranch" Carneros Chardonnay

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "First, their non-malolactic 2014 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch comes from a cool-climate vineyard in Carneros. This is aged in 75% oak casks and 25% stainless steel, which seems to be the perfect marriage for showcasing this wine’s rich fruit. The wine has loads of tangerine oil, citrus blossom, a hint of apples and orange marmalade. The oak is subtle, the wine medium to full-bodied, pure and rich. (This is the official tasting note, but I shared two bottles with some friends of mine at the casual Market restaurant in St. Helena, and it was a huge hit.) ...Read More »

2014 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Fumé Blanc

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark golden-hay in color, this white was fermented mostly in 900-gallon French oak foudres, with the remainder fermented in smaller French oak barrels. Nutty lime and gooseberry provide intrigue and saltiness against bright acidity, making for a complex and compelling impression on the palate." (2/2017) K&L Notes: Grgich Hills grows their Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc in American Canyon and Carneros vineyards where the cool climate and clay soils allow the vines to be dry-farmed organically. The juice is fermented with natural yeast... 80% in large 900-gallon casks, an... Read More »

2015 Quivira Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc

It offers accents of vanilla and white plum, as well as the aforementioned fruitiness of peach and pear." (9/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up expressive lemongrass, lime juice, fresh sage and white grapefruit notes, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has a zesty, light to medium body with racy acid and mineral suggestions on the finish.

2012 Robert Sinskey "POV" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Robert Sinskey's POV is a Bordeaux-style blend from Los Carneros, on the southerly reach of Napa Valley, by the San Pablo portion of the San Francisco Bay--better known for Pinot Noir. For the style that he's going for, Sinskey can make it work: "POV 2012 is that wine you take to dinner to not just impress, but to enjoy. A deep, dark purple hue telegraphs its impressive nature as the aromas and flavors of macerated berries (strawberries, blue/blackberries, and cherries), are backed by notes of bay leaf and fennel seed.

2014 Heitz Cellar Napa Valley Chardonnay

Connoisseurs Guide: "Bright and brisk with a bias to green apples and citrus with but a bare bit of subtle oak in the mix, this straightforward, medium-bodied effort eschews overt ripeness and instead charts a leaner, somewhat firmer course. It is more refreshing than it is rich, yet it keeps Chardonnay character in its sights and it will be most at home with milder fare." (1/2016) Wine Spectator: "Elegantly styled, with a delicate mix of green apple, citrus and quince flavors. Clean and refreshing on the finish.

2016 Frog's Leap Rutherford Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Made entirely from dry-farmed and certified organically grown grapes from their estate vineyards in Rutherford, the winemaker has this to say about the 2016 vintage, "The beautiful aromatics of the 2016 Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc brings great excitement to the wine. Peach blossom and white flower give way to a very light slatey aroma that is a perfect introduction to the crisp minerally flavors. This wine spent a bit more time on its fermentation lees than is usual and there is significant evidence for this in the depth of its flavors."

(Just open a 2010, 2011 and 2012 and you’ll see what I mean). Limited barrel fermentation coupled with extended sur lie aging in concrete vats keeps the wine bright and fresh on the fini...

2014 Frog's Leap Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Wine & Spirits: "John Williams is on a roll, following his exceptional 2013 Zinfandel with an equally delicious 2014. He dry-farms his 40-year-old vines, harvesting them at the same time as his Petite sirah so he can co-ferment the fruit. That brings the tannins together in a refreshing, gentle structure that lifts the fruit flavors, presenting them as perfectly ripe forest berries. The tannins feel plush, even as they carry a note of black-peppercorn spice and manzanita. This is a beautiful Napa Valley red that happens to speak with an accent of zin."

The tight aspect comes doubly into play in the mouth where tannin and acidity combine to add coarse, grabby impressions that interrupt the wine’s fairly likeable fruit and consign the wine to the cellar.

2011 Littorai "Cerise Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a high-altitude site in Anderson Valley, the 2011 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard is one of the wilder wines in this range. A deep, almost inky red, the Cerise shows the more animal side of Pinot in its game, tar, smoke, black pepper, licorice and black cherries. This is also one of the most powerful wines of the 2011s, but at the same time I find less elegance than in some of the other offerings.
