Amplify 2017 Santa Ynez Valley Pink Flag

Amplify is the brainchild of Cameron and Marlen Porter, two lifelong Santa Barbara natives, who aspire to make expressive, structured, linear wines in as natural a manner as possible. 100% Counoise, the Pink Flag rose is not your typical easy drinking rose, as half of the wine was aged under a protective layer of flor, in a similar fashion to sherry. The wine aged under flor gives this a nutty, intense, saline quality, while the straight rose gives it roundness and pretty red fruit. This is not a weak or facile wine. Drink with marcona almonds, lobster, venison, or octopus. This wine is unfined and unfiltered, with no added sulfur until bottling. Andrew Farquhar

Bedrock NV North Coast Shebang Red Wine

55% Zinfandel blended with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Syrah, Barbera and a touch of whites for aromatics from old vine plantings (up to 100 years old) around Sonoma County, fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel and raised in a nice bit of French oak for a bold, bright-fruited, silky, and satisfying wine that is unbeatable at this price.

Broadside is a project of very talented winemaker Chris Brock. The Cabernet is fermented with wild yeasts and aged in barrels, 10% of which are new. The resultant wine is remarkably fresh and full bodied with an interesting spicy character and plenty of bright, tangy dark fruit.

Camp 2017 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

From the folks who run Hobo Wine Co., here we have the delicious new vintage of one of our favorite inexpensive Cabernets from California! Tart blackberry and ripe cassis mix with herbal hints and wildflower on the nose while broadly gracing the firm, rich, powerfully tannic palate. Sourced from many lesser known but sustainably or organically farmed vineyards throughout Sonoma county. Aged for nine months in neutral oak barrels. Andrew Farquhar

Clos Saron 2015 California Kind of Blue

This cuvée is 52% old-vine Carignan, 40% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Semillon. Whole cluster pressed and foot-trod, this a gorgeous and deep-structured wine with notes of blue fruit and plum, with delicate violet aromatics coming from the white grapes. Notes of crushed black pepper and game on the palate form an overall elegant package, with some smoky, meaty, dense funky notes at its core. Carignan becomes more dense and structured as the vines get older, and this is quite a powerful wine. 120 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Cooper Hill 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Cooper Mountain Vineyards started in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Today, the estate has more than 100 acres  dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking. This Pinot Noir is refreshing and ripe, with brambly raspberry and cherry fruit, baking spice, and earthy flavors.

Division 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir "Cinq"

The 2016 Pinot Noir "Cinq" is sourced from the Armstrong Vineyard, in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, where grapes are grown on volcanic soils with marine sedimentary overlay and a base of basalt rock. Two barrels of this wine were made, with one being new French oak and the other being used.This is a powerfully structured wine that will benefit from time in the bottle, though it is pretty awesome right now as well, particularly after a brief decant. This is the earthiest of Division's Pinots, with brambly dark fruit accompanied by notes of grilled mushroom, forest floor, and a perfect subtle hint of sandalwood. This is a great Pinot Noir for winter cuisine, and would be perfect for cassoulet, pork roast, roasted roots vegetables, or pearl onions in gravy. The wine has strong, focused tannins and great rigid structure with incredible focus and concentration of character. Andrew Farquhar

Division 2017 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir "Un"

The 2017 Division Pinot Noir "Un" is sourced from a number of different single-vineyard sites throughout the Willamette Valley: Bjornson, Eola Springs, Armstrong, and Johan vineyards. Armstrong is certified organic, Johan vineyard is Demeter certified biodynamic, and the Bjornson vineyard has LIVE certification. As per Division's website: "Our oldest vines and first site, the Eola Springs vineyard, continues its multiyear transition to biodynamic farming while still being treated conventionally for Phylloxera (there’s no organic treatment) in the old vines and while we look forward to the day when we can say that all of our grapes are at the very least organically farmed, we will love and tend to those old vines as long as they’re productive." This wine has an amazing, almost ethereal elegance to it that makes the memory of it's drinking linger for quite some time. Aged in predominantly French oak, with Austrian oak making up the balance, 15% new, this wine has great freshness, with hints of a little exotic spice and finely integrated red fruit. The palate is full, but not heavy, with a seriously long finish. It’s dominated by wild and brambly strawberry flavors and dark mineral layers. Serve with tonkotsu ramen, roast chicken, grilled salmon, or pop it by itself at a house party because this wine shines right out of the glass by itself. Andrew Farquhar

Edmunds St. John 2014 El Dorado County Barsotti Ranch Syrah

This is a beautiful granitic Syrah from the Barsotti Ranch Vineyard. Classic Syrah aromas: smoke, cracked pepper, black and red fruit, and at the center, that same iron noticeable in the taste of the grapes. Youthful, quite fresh, with a brisk high note, faintly suggestive of  roses. Energetically very tense in the mouth, slightly bloody (that iron!) and ever so vaguely feral. The first time I tasted this blind I called it for being a dense Cabernet Franc from the Loire, which surprised me. It is big and beautiful and absolutely built for cellar-aging. 208 cases produced.

Folk Machine 2017 Central Coast Gamay Noir Rose

Fresh, vibrant,  and light, this is bright and energizing, with loads of red fruit and a fine dusting of minerality. From gamay grown in Arroyo Seco taken directly to press with very little skin contact, this wine had a natural and cool fermentation. Light in color, with fresh cherries and raspberries bursting from the glass. Pair with honeydew melon, fried chicken sliders, or gazpacho. Andrew Farquhar

Folk Machine 2017 Central Coast Pinot Noir

This refreshing and bright Pinot Noir from star California winemaker Kenny Likitprakong is sourced predominantly from the Arroyo Seco AVA, in other words, Steinbeck country. Native yeast fermentation and spontaneous malo are followed by nine months on the lees with occasional batonnage in used French oak barrels. Bright red fruit and elegant texture make for a fine, refreshing wine that lingers pleasantly on the palate. Andrew Farquhar

Frenchtown Farms 2016 Sierra Foothills Waypoint Pinot Noir

This wine has a ton of great minerality and character, with amazing funky notes and crackling acidity. This wine really begs for pairing with food, and would work great in a wide range of situations. Whole cluster fermentation brings a seething yet delicate tannic grip to the affair, with black pepper notes and leafy humus on the palate bringing an autumnal character to the fore that makes it perfect for this time of year. Twelve months are spent in used French oak barrels followed by bottling with only 18 ppm sulfur. 130 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Ghostwriter 2014 Santa Cruz County Belle Farms Pinot Noir

Planted on the west-facing slope of Mt. Madonna at 400 feet of elevation, this ended up being the last vintage made with this vineyard, which had been planted in 1997 and finally gave up the ghost in 2014. At the end of a long valley that is a geological extension of the Monterey Canyon, the largest submarine canyon off the west coast of North America, the vineyard was just too foggy and cold. That being said, the difficulty of the site made for some superb wine. Darker-fruited, funky, with some forest floor notes, and a character of dense humus on the back end of the palate, this is a distinctive wine with lots of personality that would go great with Peking duck, coq au vin, or crabs doused in Old Bay.

Ghostwriter 2014 Santa Cruz Mountains Bates Ranch Cabernet

This Cabernet is sourced from a single block of the Bates Ranch Vineyard located above 1000 feet on the eastern flank of Mt. Madonna at the very southern extremity of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA. Farmed exclusively by winemaker Kenny Likitprakong, this dry-farmed block was planted in 1973 by local wine legends Val and Dexter Ahlgren. As with much of the Cabernet from this region, the emphasis is on structural tension. Not quite as histrionically robust or extracted as Cabernet from other parts of California, this wine has some muted cassis scarved in layers of dusty tannin and spice.  This is a style of Cabernet that would have been much easier to find in these hills back in the 1970s. 207 cases produced, with shorter extraction time, 10% whole cluster fermentation, and 25% new oak.

Ghostwriter 2016 Santa Cruz County Pinot Noir

This cuvée is meant to be an overview of what the Santa Cruz Mountains have to offer, and is sourced from three different vineyards: 40% Upper Block Amaya Ridge,  35% Aptos Creek, and 25% Smith Road. While the blend varies a little vintage to vintage, the wine shows consistency in its expression of classic Santa Cruz restraint. Fine cranberry fruit with a hint of some baking and savory spices, this Pinot is finely structured, with delicate tannins and a fine acid backbone. Open and inviting now, this wine will also benefit from a few years of cellaring. Excellent with roast chicken, lobster rolls, or miso-broth ramen, this will work just as well without food, as it is aromatic and mesmerizing as a standalone experience. 600 cases produced.

Hirsch Vineyards 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir San Andreas

David Hirsch founded his vineyard in 1980 on the windswept Sonoma Coast, and is widely considered the region's eminence grise. Farming, living, and vinifying out on the wild coast above Fort Ross, his San Andres Fault Pinot Noir is considered the flagship wine of this estate winemaker, sourced from 23 of Hirsch's 61 separate vineyard blocks perched just above the fogline. This is perhaps the most iconic Sonoma Coast Pinot, with fine redcurrant and delicate cherry fruit enumerated within extraordinarily linear silken tannins. The structural architecture is written in heroic alexandrine verse, with undercurrents of bramble, redwood-needle, wet stone, and snuffed candle-wick. Serve with duck, roast pork, Dungeness crab, or turkey in mole poblano. Andrew Farquhar

Inconnu 2017 Contra Costa County Sauvignon Blanc

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is primarily from one small parcel in Contra Costa County. Laura wanted to lend a bit more material to the wine so she did a staggered pick in a neighboring vineyard to supplement. Her goal was to find a style for Sauvignon Blanc that was not overtly tropical or citrusy. We think she did a great job! It's balanced, textured, and fresh. Drink with a chill, but perhaps not too cold, as there's nice weight to this Sauvignon Blanc that may be missed at ice cold temps.   Eben Lillie

Kelley Fox 2015 Willamette Valley Momtazi Pinot Noir

This is the bigger and more powerful offering from the Momtazi Vineyard, certified biodynamic. From some of the finest single blocks of the vineyard, this is denser and darker, though still crystalline. Blue fruits and dark spicy character on the nose transmute into gentle, husky, undergrowth patterns on the palate. Dense but somehow cozy as well, this wine has a wonderfully poised character, not too wild, but neither tame. Big enough to be had with braised lamb, or beef stew, but also a numinous metaphysical experience on its own. 410 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Kelley Fox 2017 Willamette Valley Ahurani McMinnville Pinot Noir

Sourced from the biodynamic-certified Momtazi Vineyard, the Ahurani Pinot Noir is named after a water goddess from Ancient Persia. Moe Momtazi, the owner of the Momtazi vineyard, is Iranian-American, having escaped the anti-wine Islamic regime in 1982. The Momtazi vineyard is a full biodynamic site, with livestock, medicinal herbs, orchards, and reservoirs. There are many springs on the site, providing all the water needs of the winery directly from the earth. This is a wonderfully intriguing wine, with fine cranberry fruit and a piney, underbrush character on the nose. Light and ethereal, but with rigid structure that portends long improvement in bottle.

Kelley Fox 2017 Willamette Valley Mirabai Pinot Noir

Named in honor of a 15th century priestess and poet from Rajasthan, this wine is truly a transcendent poetic experience. Sourced from the Maresh vineyard, one of the oldest and most respected vineyards in Willamette Valley. As with all the 2017s, the nose has grand aromatic power, with elegant notes of crushed strawberry and spice attenuated into an elegant whole. Fermented spontaneously in used French oak barrels. This wine has a lot of structure, and will age for up to 10 years in the cellar. Well-knit silken tannins give a bigger structure to this wine than its color would portend, and will allow it to stand up to braised meats, coq au vin, or saucisson sec. A little smoky tension tells the secret of its volcanic soils. 662 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Kistler 1999 Russian River Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard

Initially bit less effusive on the nose than the 1997; with air, aromas of wild blackberry, pomegranate, rose hip, and cherry pit with  hints of Lapsang souchong, five spice and a bit of wood toast emerge. The palate is a bit more resolved, with red cherry and raspberry liqueur and balsam flavors giving way to notes of game, exotic spices, and plum skin. The tannins are well knit and there's a lovely autumnal, sous-bois character, that has me thinking this would be  fine pairing with roasted quail or tagliatelle with wild mushrooms. I find myself surprised by the prettiness that overtakes the expected power on the wines. Overall, this is perhaps, softer and less driving than the 1997, but an intriguing, finely knit example of mellowed California Pinot Noir. John McIlwain

Martha Stoumen Carignan 2017 Mendocino County Venturi Vineyard

This is one of the best Carignans I've tasted recently from California, not least because of the amazing vineyard from which these grapes are sourced. Planted in 1948, Mendocino's Venturi Vineyard is a classic, old head-trained vineyard, dry-farmed and tended by Larry Venturi, grandson of Mario and Elvira Venturi, who transformed this stretch of land from wilderness to vineyard. Planted on an old river bed containing quartz, shale, and sandstone, this wine has an amazing aromatic character that reminds me of the foggy forests of Mendocino. The nose has notes of redwood needle, dried cherry, and an undertone of wet stone. Slightly lighter in character, this wine has a great energy that I think will develop for a few years in the bottle. 178 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Martha Stoumen Negro Amaro 2017 Mendocino County Benson Ranch Rosato

Sourced from Benson Ranch, a dry-farmed head-trained vineyard in Mendocino tended by the winemaker, this is a fascinating Negroamaro Rosato that isn't quite like anything I've ever tasted. This is a hugely structured wine, with an intense, wild character, fantastic acidity, and lots of layered earthy, herbal, saline, funky notes. This wine was definitely intriguing and multifaceted, and in quintessentially southern Italian fashion is a rosato that will benefit from some bottle age. I would also suggest decanting for an hour or more to reveal its depths. It is still fascinating now, and will pair fantastically with lots of classic, intensely flavored Mediterranean foods, from Gaeta olives, to anchovies, to swordfish fillet. The racy acidity will work well with spicier mezze as well. 136 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Martha Stoumen Nero d'Avola 2016 Mendocino County Benson Ranch

Martha spent a vintage working at COS in Sicily, where she developed a deep respect for Nero d'Avola. I think this grape is one that we will see much more of in California, as it retains high acidity in hot, sunny climes. This one is full of dark, brooding energy, with fine, robust tannins and fantastic crackling acidity. The fruit character is dark and wild, with notes of bramble and blackberry interlaced with hushed notes of miso and forest floor. Drink now or age for up to ten years. Andrew Farquhar

Mount Eden 2014 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Only fourteen inches of rain fell during the rainy season at the beginning of the 2014 season, and as a result the amount of Pinot Noir grapes brought to ripeness was drastically reduced. Aged in 75% new French oak for one year before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is a wine of surpassing elegance. The interplay between the beautifully-rendered wild berry fruit and the electric tensile strength that arcs across the mouthfeel and along a finish of intergalactic length is truly a profound taste experience. The tannins are tightl- knit and grippy. The ability of this wine to go the distance in the cellar is readily apparent but after decanting it contains such finesse in its youth as to call into doubt the ability of its drinkers in being able to cellar it. 756 cases produced.

Mount Eden Vineyards 2014 Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

From one of the most historic vineyards situated in the highest reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains, featuring panoramic views of Silicon Valley, Mount Eden's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most tightly-structured and elegant wines coming from California. The mature vines, planted in 1979 and 1984 from budwood sourced in the 1890s from Château Margaux, this wine has extraordinary depth, moving through scintillating layers of blackberry, bramble, graphite, and cedar, all dusted with the Central Coast's ever-present aroma of bay laurel. Large, robust, and tannic, but with strong, broad-shouldered fruit singing through, this is a fantastic wine to have now with steak after a couple hours' decant or as a gift for a serious collector who can put it away for 10-30 years.

Rootdown 2017 Amador County Trousseau Rosé 1.5 L

A mellow peach color in the glass, this rose is a little softer than Rootdown's other offerings, but it exhibits much of the herbal, mineral, and tea-like  aspects associated with this grape. Trousseau planted in 2004 is gently foot-trod upon arrival in the winery, followed by spontaneous fermentation and cold-stabilization. Herbal, with fine green-apple fruit and a smudge of earthiness, this light and elegant rose is a great food wine. I had with hummus, tabouleh, foule, and baba ghanouj, with which it went famously.

Sun-drenched and scorchingly refreshing, this sangiovese rose sourced from a small 2 acre vineyard on Duncan Peak in Mendocino is the color of blood orange flesh in the glass. Hand-harvested, the grapes are then squeezed with high pressure to get a lot of flavor from the skins. Juicy and ripe, with incredible acidity, an herbal freshness, and powerful blood orange character, this is a supercharged rose with such concentration it feels like drinking a glassful of rubies.
