2008 Far Niente "Dolce" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml)

A combination of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the foggy town of Coombsville, east of Napa, Dolce is Napa's ultimate Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its earthy, botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity. Wonderfully food-friendly, this will pair well with foie gras, poached figs, cheeses, chocolate or creme brulee. Or cellar and watch the wine evolve. Praise from Wine Review Online: "A rare example of a domestically-produced Sauternes style wine. At once delicate and decadent, this beautifully balanced dessert wine will make a great f...

2008 Qupe "X Block—Bien Nacido Vineyard—The Good Nacido—30th Anniversary" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (Previously $90)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This bottling is the winery’s most expensive wine, and usually its best. Production of the ’08 was unusually low, resulting in amazing concentration. It’s basically a detonation of cherries, raspberries, currants, cola and mocha. New oak is present, in the form of delicate toast and wood spice, but is balanced. So silky and delicious now, you can drink it, but the tannic balance suggests the cellar. Will evolve over the next 12 years, maybe longer."

2008 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light red. Red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by rose, white pepper and vanilla. Spicy and brisk on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the middle, offering intense red fruit flavors and a touch of spicecake. Shows a refreshingly light touch, with zero excess fat. Finishes peppery and brisk, with lingering floral notes and no obvious tannins. There's an elegant, pinot-like character to this wine that's quite intriguing." (12/2012)

2008 Kenneth Volk San Benito County Cabernet Pfeffer

Cabernet Pfeffer is one of the grape varieties that was brought nearly to extinction by the ravages of the Phylloxera louse in France in the late 1800s. Plantings of this variety still exist in old vine plantings in San Benito County. Pfeffer is German for "pepper" and the wines produced from this grape have distinctive spice aromas of crushed peppercorns. This wine is a great complement to grilled and barbequed foods as well as aged cheeses.

2008 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Gregariously fruity with highlights of raspberries and cranberries intermixed with its main themes of fresh, juicy cherries, this one may arguably be criticized for being just a touch on the simple, side but no one will find it lacking in depth. It is so young that it cannot only get better with time in bottle, but we admit that its no-holds-barred richness and accessible style makes near-term resistance next to impossible."

2008 Chasseur "Joyce Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $60)

Tangy, finely etched red fruit flavors are given a firm edge by bitter cherry pit and pick up an exotic candied floral quality with air. Impressively precise and light on its feet, but at the same time very concentrated. A deeper note of blackberry arrives on the long, sappy, focused finish. This could be enjoyed now with a couple hours of aeration." (6/2010)92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Two stars.

Sweet red berry flavors show very good depth and definition, with subtle anise, smoke and violet pastille qualities building with air.

2008 Belle Glos "Las Alturas" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

The Las Alturas Vineyard, in the Santa Lucia Highlands, is a high elevation bench (1,200 feet) that, while very cool, gets loads of sunshine. This combination, along with the Gloria sandly loam soils, producers thicker-skinned grapes on low-yielding vines, amounting to exceptional deep and concentrated wines. The Las Alturas has more earthy notes than its other Belle Glos counterparts, with tangy black cherry and plum fruit and ample sweet spice.

Really wonderful over the next few years, although the softness and high alcohol suggest it’s not an ager."

Silky, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors pack a serious punch but come off as almost weightless, with tangy minerality adding spine and back-end cut.

Sweet, plummy and rather easygoing, but with sappy acidity giving shape to the middle palate and perfume to the very long finish.

2008 Morning Dew Ranch Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is known as one of wine's most fickle grapes. It takes a deft hand and the right growing conditions to get it right. In the early days of California winemaking, few managed to produce Pinot Noirs of note, but then in 1981 Burt Williams started making Pinot Noir out of his Forestville garage. That winery became Williams-Selyem, and the rest is California winemaking history. Burt sold Williams-Selyem in 1997, and he used the proceeds to buy a 40-acre ranch in the Anderson Valley, planting cuttings from the Rochioli Vineyard and "smuggled" DRC cu... Read More »
