2019 Head High Sonoma County Chardonnay
New

2019 Head High Sonoma County Chardonnay

Never been entirely convinced by unwooded Chardonnay? Well, try this and see how Head High resets the bar for no wood/no malo Chardonnay. Sourced from a vineyard in a cooler corner of Sonoma County, the wine is all about pure apple, floral and mineral accents as well as crisp, mouthwatering citrus and stone fruit. Despite the lack of oak contact and the softening that accompanies malolactic fermentation, this wine exhibits great character, full body and luscious mouthfeel.

2012 Gordian Knot Winberrie Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel
New

2012 Gordian Knot Winberrie Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel

Gordian Knot zins illustrate well the influence of terroir on wine - or else they demonstrate what a talented winemaker can do with fruit from a remarkable vineyard. Whereas "the Buzz" is rich and sumptuously fruit-forward, this 2012 Winberrie is lean by comparison. The spicy fruit framed by tangy acidity and medium tannins might even suggest Pinot Noir rather than Zin. Planted in 1906, Winberrie’s gnarled and stubby head-pruned vines lie in the Santa Rosa Plain section of the Russian River Valley - just beyond the city’s suburban sprawl. Summer fogs burn off later here than in the Dry Creek Valley, and the cooler temperatures produce wines that are characterized by  acidity, boysenberry, mulberry and raspberry fruit, and plenty of spice. Despite eight years past the vintage, this is a remarkably youthful and energetic wine with refreshing qualities that make it an ideal partner for anything off the grill.

2018 Gordian Knot Elieo Vineyard Albarino
New

2018 Gordian Knot Elieo Vineyard Albarino

Slowly…. too slowly in our opinion…. producers and consumers of California wine are discovering Albariño, the green-skinned grape of Galicia in northeastern Spain. Remarkably little Albariño is grown in Sonoma County, but the cool-but-sunny Russian River AVA seems to offer primo conditions for growing this unique variety. Here’s what late-adopters are missing: a wine that’s dry but brimming with fresh peach and zesty citrus, that’s light on its feet yet pleasantly plump, and that offers mouthwatering acidity and minerality as an essential part of the deal. Gordian Knott’s Albariño delivers on all our expectations, proving that Albariño has a natural home in the Russian River Valley. Enjoy sipping this wine on its own or pair it seafood, shellfish, poultry, white pasta dishes and, of course, paella.

2014 Gordian Knot "The Buzz" Seaton Vineyard Zinfandel

If it's a buzz you are after, this dark, juicy, spicy, massive and powerful (15.9% abv!) Zin will oblige! However, “The Buzz” is really named for Buzz Seaton, the second-generation grape grower and proprietor of Seaton Family Vineyards, who is well-known for his charm and humor. The vineyard block that is exclusively farmed for Gordian Knot features head-trained, dry-farmed vines planted over 70 years ago. Focusing their energy on their deep roots in a struggle for moisture and nutrients, the vines produce grapes with intense flavors for complex, powerful wine. No question, this is iconic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, multi-layered and toothsome, with loads of chewy, juicy black fruit wrapped in spice and toasty smoke. This (again, massive!) wine shows a beautiful, full mouth-feel with a nice balance of heft and finesse. Enjoy with all your grilled favorites or even spicy Arabiata or puttanesca pastas.

2014 Gordian Knot Porky’s Patch Zinfandel
2017 Stack House Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
New

2017 Stack House Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

One thing everybody seems to agree on: Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon delivers heaps of value! This blend of 86% Cab, 8% Merlot and 6% Cab Franc is dark purple, intense and full-bodied, and layered with dark fruit, floral and smokey flavors and aromas. Vibrant acidity and big, chewy tannins give it massive structure and a long finish. Predominantly sourced from mountain vineyards, it combines fruit from Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, Atlas Peak, and Mount Veeder with a bit of Oak Knoll and Knight’s Valley as well. Ageworthy? YES! If you can keep your hands off!

2017 Rombauer Zinfandel
New

2017 Rombauer Zinfandel

Rombauer sourced this Zinfandel mainly from El Dorado (60%) as well as the Sierra Foothills (23%), Lake County (23%) and Napa (3%). Zinfandel produced in these AVAs can pack a punch, and at 15.9% ABV, this is no shrinking violet. But Rombauer’s mission is to craft wines that seduce, entice and overwhelm the taster with such deliciousness that endorphins can't help but pop. Here’s what some of the critics have said about this Zin. Wilfred Wong of wine.com: “… in a unique class…this wine is rich and rounded on the palate. Its fragrant berry aromas and flavors combined with its off-dry finish should pair it well with grilled chicken in a dark chocolate-accented sauce.” Jeb Dunnuck: “Incorporating 5% Petite Sirah, (it) offers plenty of baked cherry and plum fruits as well as spice and cedar notes, medium body, and a sweetly fruited yet grippy style on the palate.” James Suckling: “A lot of fresh berries on the nose, as well as some licorice and flowers. Full-bodied with a very ripe fruit profile.” Wine Enthusiast: “A lot of sweetness comes through the initially spicy and complex aromas of this high-octane wine, turning to maple and milk chocolate on the palate wrapped in a soft, low-acid texture.”

2016 Ramey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
New

2016 Ramey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

As he does so well with his Chardonnays, David Ramey hits a sweet spot with his long-awaited Pinot Noir, crafting a wine that combines the aromatic perfume and acidity of a cool climate style with the rich, unctuous body of a warmer terroir. The wine was sourced from two vineyards – De La Montanya and Bucher – located along the Westside Road, a bucolic country lane of vineyards and dairy farms as well as “A-List” producers of Pinot Noir. While it’s a bit warmer here than in the hills closer to the ocean, foggy mornings are routine and keep the grapes from getting too ripe too quickly. At harvest, 25% of the fruit is processed as whole clusters, which adds savory spice to the nose and structure to the palate. Winemaking is kept simple with native yeast fermentation in tank, lees aging in barrel and bottling with light fining and no filtration. The wine is elegant and well-balanced with refreshing cherry and cranberry notes layered against more concentrated darker fruit and earthy spice.
