    It is so difficult to find Pinot Noir of this quality at this price point and that is just what the Grace Bridge delivers. Lodi once again proving to be the source of wines of terrific value and quality. Bright, juicy and rich, this is a great introduction to Californian Pinot Noir. The Californian sun has led to ripe fruit flavours but there is more than enough acidity to keep this taut and fresh. Hugely crowd pleasing.

    Textbook Orsi Vineyard aromatics of roasted lemon, citrus and green apple. The palate is lively and bright, with the orchard citrus fruits juicy and textured, while the acidity supplies ample freshness and delineation. Savory, light, refreshing and very versatile to match with food.

    Sommelier turned winemaker Leo Steen makes great wines, from chenin blanc. The ’15 Saini Vineyard has citrus fruits, green apple and minerals, in a dry style. Drinking really well now.

    This is a new wine from the stars at Varner which fits neatly between the Foxglove range and the small production single vineyard offerings. It is ripe and rich with some spice yet fresh enough to lift it above its peers. Drink from 2015

    2016 - Tangerine orange blossom, honey and a continuum of lemon sing all the way through the palate. The toasty oak framework lies underneath the fruit profile, lifting and supporting it. The creamy, zesty texture goes on forever, well beyond a typical white wine finish. Secondary notes of Jasmine, tropical guava, green apple, pear, apricot, and Marzipan all emerge in this vivacious, high toned, silky beauty. - Peter Stolpman

  • The 2016 Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County) is an addition to Gavin Chanin`s range. Sweet red cherry and floral notes are nicely pushed forward in this tasty, appellation-level Pinot. Drink it over the next few years. -- Antonio Galloni, 90 points, Vinous.

  • From just a single acre of vines, this expressive Sauvignon Blanc is a considerable level above almost all others that we`ve tried from the Napa. The fruit is gently pressed, followed by fermentation with wild native yeasts in a mix of stainless steel and oak barrels (around 10% new oak). A malolactic fermentation is avoided, to intensify the freshness and citrus zip. The wine is then aged sur lies, adding texture and layers of complexity. The wine has aromas of grapefruit, lemon, summer herbs and touch of elderflower, with a lovely mouth feel and texture. The palate is long and nuanced, finishing with impressive minerality. Very classy wine from Diana Snowden. Only 240 bottles made it to the UK...get it while you can.

    Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Royal St. Robert struts a super savory nose of chargrilled meats, yeast extract, wood smoke and forest floor with a core of wild strawberries, raspberry tart and cranberries plus touches of dried Provence herbs and truffles. The medium-bodied palate reveals a chewy frame with seamless acid supporting a great core of expressive, earthy layers culminating in a long, mineral-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti Brown 94

    This wine offers both the sweet and the savory, with a heady mix of violet, Kirsch, smoked meats, anise and black olives. On the palate, it is firm and full-bodied, with an age-worthy, almost Cabernet like structure. An acid-driven freshness underscores the flavors, adding length and dimension to this sophisticated Syrah.

    This 30 year old vineyard made up from seven acres of Pinot Noir and eight acres of Chardonnay was planted by the Demuth family. The age of the vines enables the vineyards to be dry farmed to improve sustainability.

    Stolpman`s largest cuvée, amounting to some 4,400 cases, is the keenly priced 2016 Syrah Estate, which reveals a classic nose of blackberry, violets, rose petal, cracked pepper and grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, expansive and juicy with an ample core of sweet fruit and good length and persistence. Some chalky tannins assert themselves on the finish, but it`s already drinking well. William Kelley 92

    This appellation is widely described as `sprawling` as it encompasses half or more of the county. Anthill Farm`s fruit comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation.The low coast, west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Petaluma Gap; and the high coast, the first or second ridge inland from the ocean farther to the north. These sites are united by the direct influence of the Pacific‘s cool, marine air, delaying ripening well into October. The 2013 is one of the most precise Sonoma Coast wines Anthill Farms have made to date: detailed aromas of fresh-cut cranberry mix with satsuma rind and cracked fennel seed. The palate is warm and inviting, with waves of gentle, liquid tannin spilling over the tongue, all leading to a long, gauzy finish. This wine is quite approachable on release, but three or four years of aging will be very rewarding.

    With this Pinot, Anthill Farms look to create a food-friendly, nuanced wine that represents the unique character of the Anderson Valley. Somewhat remote from most of Northern California’s wine-growing districts, this valley shelters a surprisingly harmonious blend of the wild and the civilized. in one vista, one can see sheep ranches, redwood groves, apple orchards, and impenetrable oak scrub.

    The 2015 Chardonnay Four is the richest and lushest of this lineup of three Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnays. Viscous and creamy, with tons of aromatic and flavor intensity, the 2015 has a lot to recommend it. The broad, ample style will appeal most to readers who enjoy bigger Chardonnays.

  • The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is laced with the essence of blood orange, bright red fruit, mint and white pepper. Medium in body, gracious and lifted, the Sonoma Coast Pinot has so much to offer. Year in, year out, Failla`s Sonoma Coast Pinot is one of the very best wines in its price range. Don`t miss it. 90 points Galloni

    We bring together sites from the northwest end of the Anderson Valley to create the Fog-Eater. This vintage has a savory expression with deeper fruit tones and more tannin structure. This wine was made to embody a heightened level of complexity, roundness and richness. A classic representation of Anderson Valley is the result.
