2017 Three Thieves California Pinot Noir

2017 Three Thieves California Pinot Noir

It follows on the palate with toasty oak nuances and satisfying notes of red and black cherries.” The fruit was sourced primarily from the Central Coast (60%) as well as from Lodi/Clarksburg (40%). The blend includes 18% Syrah and 6% Petite Sirah for color and body. Contact with both French and American oak provided tannic structure as well as spice notes in the finish.

2017 Cline Sonoma Coast Syrah

2017 Cline Sonoma Coast Syrah

As the fifth most-planted variety in California, it is likely that much Syrah is planted in the wrong places. At its best - in cool climates such as the Northern Rhone - Syrah will be full-bodied but delicate with nuances of violets, pepper, spice and savory notes of leather. Cline Cellars sources its Syrah exclusively from estate vineyards in Sonoma’s newest AVA, the Petaluma Gap, where the climate gives the wine fresh acidity, pure fruit and a vibrant mouthfeel. How can one not take in the aromas of black pepper and savory herbs, flavors of licorice, olive and boysenberry and not pour a second glass? Cline fans may notice the change in appellation (from Sonoma County to Sonoma Coast), the redesigned label and the more substantial bottle. The wine seems heftier, too, with more structured acidity and serious tannins holding up the myriad flavors. What hasn’t changed is the price, making Cline’s Sonoma Coast Syrah one of the great bargains around today!

2016 Castle Rock Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 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 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.

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.

2016 Castle Rock Mendocino County Pinot Noir

2016 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.

2016 Dashe Reserve Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (375ml)

2016 Dashe Reserve Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (375ml)

To mark 20 years of making wine from the Dry Creek Valley, Dashe Cellars has produced their first reserve bottling, a blend of not only their favorite vineyards in the region but the very best barrels those lots produced. Other differences from the non-reserve include a higher percentage of Petite Sirah in the blend and aging in 20% new French oak. Dashe Cellars describes this wine as one of the most intense and complex Dry Creek Zins they have yet produced - with enticing aromas of blackberry, cassis, pomegranate, chocolate and licorice as well as a hedonistic, velvety palate of dark chocolate and black pepper spice.

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.

2016 Castle Rock Monterey County Pinot Noir

2016 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 offers a complex palate of cherry, dark cranberry, earth and smoked meat. Its elegance, medium body, silky texture and mild tannins make it an excellent match for lamb and chicken as well as salmon or pan-seared tuna steaks.

2013 Castle Rock Los Carneros Pinot Noir

2013 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.

2015 Taken "Complicated" Red Central Coast

2015 Taken "Complicated" Red Central Coast

In Spain and Southern France, vintners have long understood the affinity between Grenache and Syrah. Grenache brings bright strawberry and raspberry flavors – but potentially more alcohol and less acidity for a well-balanced wine. Syrah darkens the color and adds tannic structure and notes of blueberry and spice. Taken’s 2015 “Complicated” was sourced from vineyards in California’s “Rhone Zone” – the Central Coast AVA. The blend of 58% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 1% Mourvedre, 1% Cinsault was aged in French oak. It’s a juicy, opulent wine with an excellent balance of bright fruit, acidity and tannin. This red blend offers great value and is ready to drink – especially with whatever comes off the grill.
