  • 2020 Broc Cellars Nouveau

    $31.00
    Tasting Notes ~ This year’s nouveau comes from a small amount of Valdiguié grapes that we picked intending to make rosé but turned it into a bright high acid red. Two thirds of the fruit we left as whole clusters and the remaining was destemmed and placed on top of the whole clusters as they fermented in tank. A small amount of carbonic takes place from the whole clusters. Aged in neutral French oak for 6 weeks. Bottled unfiltered and ready to drink now.

    2016 Cornell Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

    $175.00
    WA 93 JS 97 DC 95 VN 97
    Vinous 97 ~ The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon shows just how far the estate has progressed in just the last few years. Powerful and explosive, with tremendous aromatic intensity, the 2016 is a rapturously beautiful wine. Dark cherry, mocha, bittersweet chocolate, new leather, spice, sage, and lavender add layers of understated nuance and complexity in this riveting, stunningly dramatic mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 shuts down quickly after opening, which is probably a very good thing for its aging prospects. The 2016 is an extraordinary and deeply moving wine from Cornell.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94 ~ The 2014 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard was showing very well, offering up an expressive bouquet of violets, cracked pepper, dried flowers and crushed cassis. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, bright and intense, with chalky structuring tannins, lovely tangy acidity and a long, perfumed finish.

  • 2017 Booker Vineyard ‘My Favorite Neighbor’

    $70.00
    WA 94 JD 96
    Jeb Dunnick 96 ~ The 2017 My Favorite Neighbor is also terrific and I suspect would cost 2-3 times its going rate if it was from Napa Valley. It's also the more elegant, perfumed, red-fruited release compared to the darker fruited Harvey and Harriet release. Classy notes of black raspberries, spice box, white flowers, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf all emerge from the glass of this medium to full-bodied red, which offers a seamless texture, fine tannins, and a great finish. It will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade.

The medium-bodied palate takes its time to open to bright, tangy flavor layers in a rounded, satiny frame and with a long finish. Give this the time it deserves in bottle, as it's currently very shy.

    2017 Occidental ‘Occidental Station Vineyard’ Pinot Noir

    $105.00
    WA 95 JD 96
    Jeb Dunnick 96 ~ Coming from a more inland vineyard that’s one of the first to be harvested, the 2017 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Vineyard sports a deeper ruby/purple color as well as a tighter yet intense style carrying lots of almost blue fruits, violets, peppery spice, and spring flowers. Despite showing ample power and richness, it has a vivid spine of acidity, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish, all pointing to a solid decade or more of prime drinking. I think it will show every more complexity with a year or two of bottle age.

    Vinous 94 ~ Limpid straw-yellow. A highly perfumed, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, buttered toast and succulent flowers, and a fennel nuance emerges with air. Shows superb depth and sharp delineation, offering vibrant tangerine, pear nectar, honeysuckle and succulent herb flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful, displaying sharp focus and minerally thrust on an impressively long finish that features repeating floral and orchard fruit notes.

  • 2014 Wayfarer ‘Golden Mean’ Pinot Noir

    $120.00
    WA 94 WE 97
    Wine Enthusiast 97 ~ Dark, brooding cinnamon and fleshy black plum provide an exciting, complex counterpoint to the rakish earthiness and exotic Asian spice going on in this full-bodied, explosively compelling wine, its minerality lingering. It's young and still tightly coiled, with lingering minerality; let it open to enjoy now, but it would show best after some time, so cellar through 2024. Cellar Selection
