NV Vina Maitia "Aupa" Pipeno

NV Vina Maitia "Aupa" Pipeno

Viña Maitia’s “Aupa" is a pipeño, which, in earlier times, was a simple, rustic wine that was made and enjoyed by the campesinos (peasant farmers). While pipeño did have a reputation as the kind of quaff some folks drank like water, David and Loreta do believe pipeño is part of Chilean wine tradition worth preserving. Made simply, naturally and with grapes growing locally for local consumption, it was, almost by definition, a wine of place. “Aupa” is a blend of 70% Pais and 30% Carignane. In most Chilean wine regions, Pais, with its reputation for low acid and light color, is a grape variety in decline, yet Viña Maitia’s Pais is sourced from ancient, low-yielding “bush vines,” and develops extraordinary concentration and flavor. And, like the French vignerons who farmed these same vineyards 80+ years ago, David supplements his Pais with old vine Carignane for additional structure, color and acidity. Vina Maitia’s Aupa is a delight; refreshing, bright and low in alcohol, it’s an easy drinking summertime red that can be enjoyed with a range of casual fare (including seafood) throughout the evening.

2016 Cline "Farmhouse" Red

2016 Cline "Farmhouse" Red

The “Farmhouse” on the label stands at the Green String Farm in Petaluma, a center dedicated to studying methods of farming that are "beyond sustainable." These same methods guide the viticultural practices at Cline Cellars so that the vineyards will remain bountiful for decades to come. Farmhouse 2016 consists of 39% Merlot, 21% Syrah, 20% Zinfandel, 9% Grenache, 7% Petite Sirah, and 3% Mourvèdre. Oak barrel aging integrates the flavors and other components, producing a wine that’s bright but full-bodied with jammy berry flavors and soft tannins. It's hard to believe such a fine and distinctive wine is available at such a reasonable price! Try this with a steak - beef or tuna would satisfy equally - or a rustic pasta with plenty of mushrooms.

2015 Cline Sonoma County Syrah

2015 Cline Sonoma County Syrah

With its dark purple color, multi-faceted fruit profile, and the ability to grace both picnic blankets and restaurant tables, Syrah has soared in popularity, recently becoming California’s fifth-most-planted grape. With a dry,  Mediterranean climate like that of Southern France, Sonoma County can produce excellent Syrah. The grapes for this wine come mainly from Cline’s vineyards on the Sonoma Coast, where cooler conditions add refreshing acidity and spicy aromas. With a compelling mix of ripe fruit and savory characters, this wine is a surefire match for grilled fare – even grilled salmon or mixed grilled vegetables drizzled with olive oil.

2015 Cline "Old Vine" Lodi Zinfandel

2015 Cline "Old Vine" Lodi Zinfandel

In celebration of Cline’s 35-year anniversary, the winery has bottled this old favorite under a dramatic new label. The grapes for this rich and complex red wine come come from several old vineyards located in the Mokelumne River AVA, one of Lodi’s seven sub-AVAs.  Located at the northern end of the San Joaquin Valley, the region has been producing wine grapes since the 1850s and is renowned for distinctive, voluptuous Zinfandel. Abundant daytime heat during the growing season is mitigated by cool winds and fog that roll in during the evenings, creating ideal conditions for Zinfandel grapes. By carefully selecting and blending the fruit, Cline achieves harmony, elegance and early-drinkability. The rich berry flavors and smooth structure suggest excellent pairing with bold-flavored foods such as penne putanesca, grilled meats or chili con carne.

2015 Castle Rock Paso Robles Petite Sirah

2015 Castle Rock Paso Robles Petite Sirah

Not to be confused with Syrah, Petite Sirah (a.k.a. Durif) has been part of California winemaking since the earliest days – whether in the “field blends” of the pioneers or as a varietal wine more recently. Black-skinned and high in tannin and acidity, it can add structure and freshness to red blends or produce a lovely varietal that's hearty, age-worthy and generous with dark fruit, spice and floral notes. Paso Robles has a Mediterranean climate of hot days and cool nights that’s perfect for this grape, and “Paso Petites” have been winning accolades from critics and consumers alike. Castle Rock’s Petite Sirah is dark, full-bodied, deeply concentrated and delicious. What value! Try it with grilled meats, hearty stews or pasta.

2014 Castle Rock Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Castle Rock Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

An arid plateau east of the Cascade Range and beyond the tempering influence of the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia Valley has little in common with the appellations along the west coast. On the other hand, at 46° N, it shares the same latitude as the great French wine growing regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, allowing for much longer summer days than in points south. The Columbia Valley’s combination of a long growing season, rich volcanic soils and plenty of mountain run-off for nurturing vines in the dry climate produces bold and nuanced wines, full of structure and balanced acidity. Castle Rock’s south-facing hillside vineyards produce a Cabernet Sauvignon that is rich, structured and supple.

2015 Castle Rock Mendocino County Pinot Noir

2015 Castle Rock Mendocino County Pinot Noir

Compared with the Napa Valley, Mendocino wine regions remain rural and rugged. Because restaurants and winery tasting rooms are few, the landscape features forests, ranches, farms and vineyards. The Anderson Valley and the western side of the county features a cool climate that allows Pinot Noir to develop wonderful aromatics and bright fruit flavors. Castle Rock’s Mendocino Pinot is a great value, offering attractive cherry and wild berry fruit as well as notes of earth, cedar and savory herbs. Lamb, chicken, salmon and light pasta dishes will all pair well with this wine.

2015 Castle Rock Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

2015 Castle Rock Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Located between Monterrey and Santa Barbara, the Paso Robles AVA is not among the Central Coast’s cooler climates. Indeed, the Santa Lucia Mountain Range that forms the AVA’s western border, shields most of Paso Robles AVA from coastal fog and winds, which is why Zinfandel, Syrah and the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon feature prominently among Paso Robles wineries. On the other hand, because Paso Robles features the widest day-to-night temperature swing in California, red wines develop complex flavors over a long growing season. Diverse soils are another key feature of Paso Robles: granite, marine and volcanic rocks, calcareous shales and sandstone can often be found within the same vineyard block! With Castle Rock’s Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon you get a classic, dark, rich Cab at a price that merits midweek drinking. Pair it with beef, lamb or even spaghetti Bolognese.

2015 Dashe Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (375ml)

2015 Dashe Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (375ml)

Fans of Dashe Zinfandel love this wine for its elegance, for being a wine that’s balanced and understated and thoroughly “claret-like” in the way it will grace a meal without calling too much attention to itself. It’s sourced from small vineyards tucked away in the center and north of the Dry Creek valley and still farmed as they were in the decades before Sonoma County emerged as a wine country destination for city folk. Zin, in particular, loves the region’s warm days and cool nights. In 2015, dry conditions nearly halved the amount of fruit per vine, resulting in a wine with intense fruit flavors and aromatics  as well as bright acidity and supple tannic structure. The 375 ml bottle offers convenience.

2016 Joel Gott California Zinfandel

2016 Joel Gott California Zinfandel

Eschewing the high-octane, bruising style of California Zin, Joel Gott excels with a food-friendly, well-balanced wine that’s as affordable as it is delicious. The 2016 California Zinfandel has everything we look for in a Zin – brambly, spicy fruit, concentration, good body and a bit of alcohol – but its well-balanced and won’t overpower a meal. In 2016, the blend was sourced primarily from old, head-trained vineyards in Lodi’s Borden Ranch AVA and Amador county. Additional fruit from Sonoma added texture, spiciness, bright flavors and acidity. Aging involves primarily older French oak barrels, but 20% new American oak layers the fruit with welcome notes of spicy vanilla. Joel Gott recommends trying this wine with pulled pork, cheeseburgers or grilled chicken.

2014 SeaGlass Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 SeaGlass Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

When you think of Paso Robles, Rhone style red might come to mind, but Cabernet is, in fact, the AVA’s most widely-planted grape variety; indeed, more Cab is produced in Paso than in any other coastal region outside Napa. Paso’s well-drained gravelly and loamy soils provide Cabernet with great concentration, and the region’s long growing season and dry climate mean that rain rarely spoils the harvest of this late-ripening variety. The bright flavors, vibrant acidity, and soft but rich tannins that make this Seaglass Cabernet so compelling are the hallmarks of great Paso Robles Cabernet. Decant this Cab for an hour or so and the bright blackberry fruit develop notes of salted meats, minerality and sandalwood. Quite a complex wine for such a reasonable price!

2016 SeaGlass Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

2016 SeaGlass Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

Bright lively Pinot that’s as delicious as it is affordable! SeaGlass Pinot Noir is sourced primarily from the Los Alamos Vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards in Santa Barbara County that also supplies fruit to such illustrious producers as Au Bon Climat. It’s an area of rolling hills, where the valleys run east to west, funneling the ocean fog and breezes many kilometers inland. Grapes develop bright flavors as they ripen slowly; they also begin ripening early because the sandy soils radiate warmth. Seaglass has produced an elegant, light-bodied Pinot Noir that shows plenty of bright red fruit character without heaviness or excessive alcohol. Mild cheeses, grilled salmon or lamb would pair well with SeaGlass Pinot Noir.

2014 Vina Maitia "Maitia"

2014 Vina Maitia "Maitia"

Maitia (“my love” in Basque) is made in a way that the French winegrowers working in the Maule Valley 100 years ago would surely recognize. It’s a field blend of Carignane, Pais and Cabernet Franc from a vineyard in which the vines are over 60 years old. Those vignerons planted Carignane to add color, acidity and structure to the Pais. Wistful for home, perhaps, they called the wine Burdeo – Bordeaux – even though it would not have resembled a Bordeaux in the least!  According to David Marcel, they also may not have been aware that a certain portion of the cuttings they planted were, in fact, Cabernet Franc, which now adds berry fruit and herbaceous notes to the blend. Maitia is made in a traditional, “handmade” way, with the fruit co-fermented in concrete tanks with a large percentage of whole clusters to encourage a partial carbonic maceration. Maitia is bright and refreshing when young but will develop a more complex bouquet over the next five to ten years.

2012 Castle Rock Los Carneros Pinot Noir

2012 Castle Rock Los Carneros Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is well-known as a finicky grape that, if planted in the right spot, can express the terroir like no other. Carneros was among the first of California’s cool-climate AVAs to prove that the “right spot” need not be in Burgundy to make a wine that is subtle, elegant, complex and sublime. Castle Rock’s Los Carneros is a fabulous value, delivering a smooth and heady mix of fruit and spice. Lamb, chicken, salmon or light pasta dishes would pair well with this versatile wine.

2014 Castle Rock Monterey County Pinot Noir

2014 Castle Rock Monterey County Pinot Noir

Whereas southern Monterey County is warm, dry and well-suited to Bordeaux varietals, the northern half, with sandy soils and a moist, cool maritime climate, is perfect for such Burgundian varietals as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Cooler summer temperatures allow for a longer growing season for Pinot Noir, while also allowing extra “hang-time” on the vines, giving way to a characteristic depth and concentration of flavor. Castle Rock’s Monterey County Pinot Noir is elegant and medium bodied, and its silky texture and mild tannins ensure that it pairs well with lamb and chicken as well as salmon or pan-seared tuna steaks.
