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.

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.


Rock Star Syrah – 2016 Peake Ranch John Sebastiano (Made by Paul Lato)

2016 Peake Ranch Syrah John Sebastiano Vineyard

Sourced all from the Sta. Rita Hills section of the John Sebastiano Vineyard, the 2016 Syrah John Sebastiano Vineyard is a rock star effort that spent 18 months in neutral barrels. Black raspberries, olive tapenade, smoked herbs, and crushed flower notes all flow to a rich, full-bodied beauty that has ultra-fine tannins, thrilling purity and a great, great finish. Love it. – Jeb Dunnuck
