Beautiful, Balanced Effort from Paul Lato

2016 Peake Ranch Bellis Noir

(50% Syrah 50% Grenache)

The 2016 John Sebastiano Vineyard Bellis Noir checks in as an even split of Grenache and Syrah that was aged 18 months in neutral barrels. This medium ruby/purple-tinged red gives up rocking amounts of spiced black raspberries, olive, spring flowers, and bacon fat.

It is a brilliant bottle of wine.

Fantastic Value Offering from Mark Herold

2015 Mark Herold ‘Acha’ Tempranillo

Lake County, Napa Valley
Red wine from the United States
Drinking Window: 2020 – 2030

Another wrinkle on the Mark Herold winery is the Acha line. The Acha is 100% Tempranillo from Lodi.  Sumptuous, racy and flavourful, the 2015 packs a serious punch. The flavours are dark, bold and incisive. Varietal character comes through mostly in the wine’s structure.

2016 Blackbird Arise Offering – Today Only Offering

So you say you haven’t had a great Merlot in a long time…

Blackbird Arise 2016

Merlot dominant blend that shows the strength of the varietal. Too often an underused voice in the orchestra, the Merlot here grounds the blend with a mouth-filling velvet texture which is layered with enough brightness to keep the wine feeling fresh on the palate.

Arise offers beautiful fresh cut herbs and plenty of crushed stone flavours that make it more compelling than many wines of a similar style and price.

$65/Bottle

Personal Wine Project of Napa Valley Star!

2016 Leviathan Blend Red

Personal Project of Napa Winemaker Andy Erickson

Leviathan is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot aged in 25% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple coloured, it leaps from the glass with exuberant black cherries, black raspberries and blackcurrants with hints of pencil shavings, black pepper, tobacco and forest floor plus a waft of tapenade. Full, firm and grainy, with gorgeous mid-palate generosity and packed with layers of black fruit and savoury sparks, it has a rock-solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. Approachable now yet structured to cellar, this seriously affordable, serious California blend should age 15-20 years or more. About 8,000 cases available.

A Highly Rated Syrah From Jeff Cohn (JC Cellars)

From acclaimed Rhone Winemaker Yves Cuilleron in a joint venture with Jeff Cohn of JC Cellars from one of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma (Rockpile AVA)

2013 JC Cellars Domaine des Chirats Syrah

This wine is dark, with hues of red and purple that are opaque in saturation. Aromatics of wild herbs stimulate the senses as you meander to a sweet nose of black cherry, blackberries, cassis, and liquid minerals. A harmonious balance of tannins, acidity, concentrated black fruits, and roasted Herbes de Provence, yield to a bold and lengthy finish. Not French, not California, but pure Rockpile Syrah.
