2016 Materra Chardonnay
California-Napa Valley (Oak Knoll District)

Winemaker’s Notes: The 2016 Materra Chardonnay bursts with aromas of bright citrus orange, honeysuckle, papaya, guava, toasty vanilla, jasmine and lemon meringue. Nice crisp acidity meets the palate up front that is very complimentary to the balance of fruit with oak. Additional flavors of lime zest, granny smith applies and tropical fruits gracefully make its presence throughout and meets the creamy middle to a clean lingering finish. Oak aged for 8 months in 40% new French oak and 60% neutral with only 1% going through malolactic fermentation. This Chardonnay pairs well with fruit salads and desserts, grilled fish, barbeque chicken, linguine and clams, semi-soft and hard cheeses and dishes enhanced with almonds, cashews or lemon. Enjoy now and up to 3-5 years.

2014 Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California-Alexander Valley

Winemaker’s Note: Simi 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, dark garnet in color with a ruby edge. Toasty oak frames and adds depth to dark fruit aromas of blackberry, plum, and black cherry, leading into intriguing notes of cocoa, cassis, pepper berry, and cedar. Black fruit dominates the entry followed by plum and black cherry with a spicy, lifted mid-palate. A bit of peppery cassis leads the finish with some roasted coffee notes and supple yet firm tannins.

The Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly food friendly and not a puzzle to pair with. It will bring out the best in grilled steaks with roasted mushrooms, Moroccan spiced lamb, and braised duck breast with carrot purée.

2015 Carne Humana Napa Valley White Wine
California-Napa Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: The Carne Humana White Blend is co-fermented and barrel-aged as a single blend. It is pale straw with brilliant green hues, has intense fruit aromas of citrus blossom, melon, pineapple and guava with hints of flint or wet river stones. Crisp and dry on the palate with a focused acidity, hints of minerality and tropical fruit highlights. It is medium-bodied with a long, fresh finish.

2015 Michael Chapoutier Bila-Haut
France-Cotes du Roussillon

Winemaker’s Note: Deep garnet red. Aromas of black cherry. This wine is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage of soils of the Roussillon area.

91-93 Points Robert Parker: The jaw-dropper in the lineup was the quality of the 2015 Haut Cotes de Roussillon Villages les Vignes de Bila Haut. While the entry level wine from this estate, the quality here is incredible, especially at the price point. Made from 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan from a mix of the estate’s terroirs, aged in concrete tanks and stainless steel, it offers a rich, concentrated and serious feel to go with fabulously pure notes of blackberries, black raspberries, crushed rock and melted licorice. Thick, unctuous and luxuriously textured, this will certainly be the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date. Range: 91-93

90 Points Wine Spectator: This has finesse, with an iron core surrounded by blackberry, cassis, plum and garrigue flavors. Full tannins offer structure, with details of olive and bay leaf that linger into the savory finish. Drink now through 2020. 60,000 cases made.

Jo Landron Atmospheres NV
France-Loire Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: Our runaway best seller from Jo Landron. Many producers in and around Muscadet used other grapes to make an inexpensive sparkling wine, but few have been able to strike the balance Jo achieves between a joyful, unpretentious sparkling wine and an elegant, surprising Methode Traditionelle that hints at Champagne. 80% Folle Blanche, 20% Pinot Noir, grown in the Muscadet region (but can’t be called Muscadet as it’s sparkling.) Good richness, red apples, ripe lemons, peaches and pears. Dark/toasty note on the long finish.

2014 Seven Falls Cellars Rapids Red
Washington-Columbia Valley (Wahluke Slope)

Winemaker’s Note: This lively Rapids Red blend is loaded with flavors of dark fruit, blueberry, blackberry and plum, followed by mocha and hints of spice, resulting in a powerful and bold experience. Try it with pepper steak, lamb, rich stews, and strong cheeses such as blue cheese.
