2006 Trois Voyelles Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

2006 Trois Voyelles Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Lovers of white wines with the notes that develop with age should check out this Sauvignon Blanc from the 2006 vintage. The Dry Creek Valley features a climate that’s cooler than the Alexander Valley but not cold like Sonoma’s Petaluma Gap or Russian River AVAs; hence, Sauvignon Blanc does not have to be made in a crisp, Sancerre-like style. Indeed, the producers of Trois Voyelles clearly had white Bordeaux in mind when they made this wine. Fermented and aged in French oak and at least partially put through malolactic fermentation, this is a wine that has mellowed well into a mature state. Golden colored, this Sauvignon Blanc seduces with its rich, full body as well as aromas of guava, apricots, white raisins and dried herbs. A mouthfilling palate follows with ripe pineapple as well as notes of butter and toast that last long in a luxurious finish. Fans of Rombauer Chardonnay may find this mature Sauvignon Blanc similarly seductive and compelling with new surprises that emerge in each sip.

2016 Bodkin
New

2016 Bodkin "Unto The Breach" Dry Muscat Canelli

Muscat Canelli – a.k.a. Muscat Blanc or Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains – makes fresh and exotic wines with distinctive aromas of peach, rose petal and citrus in dry, sweet, sparkling and even fortified styles. While Muscat Canelli is planted in California about on par with Riesling and Viognier, it is underrepresented in fine establishments and underrated among consumers. By calling the wine “Unto the Breach,” Bodkin recognizes that selling Muscat may be about as arduous as “laying siege to a city.” Yet, made in a dry style, with lowish (12.4%) alcohol, this crisp wine has fragrance, acidity, body and zest - a wonderful accompaniment to Japanese cuisine.

2018 Head High Sonoma County Pinot Noir
New

2018 Head High Sonoma County Pinot Noir

 

This wine is a product of three Sonoma County vineyards: Gap's Crown, Durell, and Deodura. Throughout the summer, both Gap’s Crown, a hillside vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, and Durell vineyard, located west of Sonoma town, enjoy conditions that perfectly balance both warm and cool. These vineyards have such a reputation for robust and intense Pinot Noir that several of Sonoma’s best producers buy the grapes for their top wines. Head High Sonoma County Pinot shares the grapes and qualities of these wines - but is available at a much more reasonable price. The bright red fruit, crisp acidity and power of this wine all stand out. Serving slightly chilled will help mute the sharp edges.

2003 Trois Voyelles Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2003 Trois Voyelles Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

While most of the wines we offer are a winery’s current or near-current release, from time to time, we stumble upon a cache of wine that, for one reason or another, has been hidden away for years beyond its original release date. Unless you have the space and facilities to cellar your wine properly, this represents an opportunity to purchase wine that has developed the mellow and savory notes associated with age. Our latest acquisition is Trois Voyelles Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2003 vintage. Trois Voyelles was made by a small Alexander Valley winery called Wilson Fleming Estate. Edith Wilson and Tony Fleming launched their winery in 2002, and their wines, handcrafted and made in small lots, won many awards over the years. 2003 in the Alexander Valley was cool and even unusually wet at the start of the growing season, but a heat spike in September led to a harvest that was finished in early October. At 16 years after the harvest, flavors and aromas show dark berries, blackberry jam, spice and tobacco.

2016 Trefethen "Double T" Red Napa Valley

Most Napa wineries seeking to produce an “entry” or value bottling must seek out fruit from far beyond the borders of Napa County if they want to keep the price down. Not so, Trefethen. Double T, their “truly fun wine at a great price,” is made from the same plots on the Oak Knoll Main Ranch that produce their entire range of estate wines. “Double T” is meant to evoke the look of vines trained on a quadrilateral cordon trellis - four arms resembling two Ts – as well as to acknowledge that the winery is run by four Trefethens spanning two generations. Composed of all five classic Bordeaux varieties, Double T nevertheless rearranges the traditional blend in an intriguing way, with Petite Verdot and Malbec playing a much larger role than usual. The result is a wine that is purple black in color, lush and creamy on both nose and palate, and awash in blackberry, cassis, cloves and milky dark chocolate. As summer extends into autumn, Double T will taste great with barbecue or more elegant fare. The winery even suggests pepper-crusted Ahi tuna.

2018 Six Cloves Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay
New

2018 Six Cloves Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay

In the northwestern part of the City of Napa, where track homes begin to modulate into small farms and orchards, you’ll find the Linda Vista Vineyard. This is Oak Knoll, a cool sub AVA of the Napa Valley where Chardonnay vines thrive. Indeed, even the Chardonnay that won the infamous Paris Tasting for Chateau Montelena came from another vineyard nearby. Linda Vista is farmed by Steve Matthiasson, a grape grower and winemaker and well-known proponent of viticultural methods that produce fruit with higher levels of acidity for making wines with less alcohol and greater balance. Sonoe Hirabayashi has made a delightful Chardonnay with the Linda Vista fruit. Brisk and refreshing, it bursts with citrus, apple and lemon curd; the pure, varietal character is further emphasized through judicious use of oak that softened the wine without masking the flavors.
