Aaron Burr Appinette Grape-apple Cider 70% NY Apples 30% Grapes

Another fantastic cider from the Aaron Burr Cidery! The Appinette blends together NY apples and a local grape, Traminette (a genetic cross between Gewürztraminer and the French-American hybrid Joannes Seyve). Lively and complex with heady aromas of guava, pineapple, banana, and lemon curd. There is also a very pleasant vinous muskiness. On the palate, it is quite earthy and very dry with a gentle sparkle, making it almost more reminiscent of wine than cider. Salty minerals, delicate fruit, and a vigorous acidity balance it out and make it rather food friendly! Tim Gagnon

Aaron Burr 2015 Mamakating Hollow Homestead Cider 500ml

The Mamakating Hollow cider is exotic and deep on the nose with aromas of sandalwood, almond butter, ripe apricot, hay, and decadent orange marmalade. Full-bodied and slightly effervescent on the palate, golden orchard fruit and earthy tones emerge with pronounced tannic structure followed by a hint of blood orange and iron - it almost mirrors autumn. With time open, ripe apple, pear, and apricot fruit come forward along with apple blossom. This is incredibly food-friendly and would pair well with any type of rustic vegetable dish, or even pork or roasted chicken. Tim Gagnon

Banshee 2014/2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Banshee is 100% Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast, including a significant amount from Charles Heintz Vineyard, as well as Wildcat Mountain Vineyard in Petaluma Gap, and another vineyard called Bohemian Green Valley.  Rich and vibrant with notes of creamy lemon curd, juicy stone fruit, and a hint of vanilla bean, with invigorating acidity and a big but graceful build. A wine of great integrity for under $20. Ariana Rolich

Bow & Arrow 2015 Eola-Amity Chenaie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 1.5 L

From a single clone, this barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc has notes of pear and peach candy, with ripe and rich orchard fruit flavors and dried herb undertones. For those expecting lean-and-mean, cookie-cutter Sauvignon Blanc, they're bound to be disappointed by this wine's aromatic complexity and rich, leesy texture. We'll soon run out of them in 750ml, but brought some back in magnums. Jonas Mendoza

Division 2015 Willamette Valley Chardonnay Un

Division sourced this year's Chardonnay from a blend of several vineyards in the Willamette Valley including two biodynamic, dry-farmed sites (Cooper Mountain Hill and Johan Vineyards).  The wine expresses the warmth the 2015 vintage, with rich lemon curd, ripe peach, and tropical fruit flavors, woven through with lemony acidity.

Dragonette Cellars 2014 Santa Barbara County Duvarita Vineyard Chardonnay

Dragonette Cellars produces small lots of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc from cool-climate vineyards in California. The biodynamically farmed Duvarita Vineyard lies just west of the Santa Rita Hills appellation on gentle, south-facing slopes of almost pure sand. Although there’s less than 15% new oak, biscuity aromas mingle with ripe peach, melon, and lemon pith flavors along with honey and vanilla undertones. Vibrant and fresh, this Chardonnay perfectly exemplifies the terroir and potential of Santa Barbara County. Jonas Mendoza

Edmunds St. John 2015 El Dorado County Heart of Gold

In addition to perfectly elegant, age-worthy reds, Steve Edmunds produces one of California's lightest, purest white wines from Vermentino and Grenache Blanc. Heart of Gold exudes fresh white florals, mineral water, and tingly  orchard fruit aromas; flavors are bright and defined, graceful and deeply mineral, with gentle rays of citrus pith and crisp pear, golden apple, and yellow peach. Acidity is abundant and well-integated. Ariana Rolich

Eminence Road 2014 Cayuga Lake Pinot Gris

This dry Pinot Gris from the Finger Lakes is very much different from its slightly sweet Alsatian counterparts, but is nonetheless delicious! On the palate, baked golden apples, fresh tarragon, onion skin, and a distinct salty and savory quality. This benefits from a long decant and gets better after being opened for a day (and even two)!

Les Lunes 2015 Manton Valley Chardonnay

Sam Baron, Shaunt Oungoulian and Diego Roig are the brains and brawn behind Les Lunes (as well as Populis Wines). The emphasis is on fanatical vineyard management and minimal winemaking intervention. The fruit is sourced from from own-rooted vines planted at the Dobson Vineyard at the foot of the highly active Mt. Lassen Volcano. This Chardonnay explodes with intense citrus flavors and sharp acidity. The wine softens with aeration and/or and short decant. Jonas Mendoza

Lo Fi 2015 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay

The philosophy behind Lo-Fi (just like music production) isn’t to create wine that is too polished or perfect, but rather that which embraces a more natural, raw expression. For winemakers Michael Roth and Craig Winchester, less is more: neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulfur additions, and no acid adjustments. The Chardonnay is aged in 6-year old barrels, then racked and matured in concrete eggs for 6 months. The wine has a leesy texture and crisp snappiness, accompanied by flavors of ripe peach, banana, and white flowers. Jonas Mendoza

Maître de Chai 2014 Sonoma County Herron Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Maître de Chai is the personal project of Marty Winters and Alex Pitts who met in the kitchen of the restaurant Cyrus in Sonoma, CA. The Sauvignon Blanc comes from 65-year-old vines from the organically, dry-farmed Herron vineyard in the Sonoma Mountain AVA. The wine undergoes whole-cluster fermentation and is fermented on its skins.  Pineapple core, peach and golden appel skin flavors are framed by finely grained tannins and bright acidity. A Sauvignon Blanc that rewards decanting and serving with food. Jonas Mendoza

Minimus 2015 Applegate Valley SM2 Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc

For as iconoclastic of a winemaker as Chad Stock, one wouldn't expect him to delve into the nuances of Sauvignon Blanc, but this is his second exploration with grapes sourced from the Stella Maris vineyard in southern Oregon's Applegate Valley AVA. The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented whole-cluster, macerated with Viognier, and then matured in 600L acacia-wood puncheons. There's the typical zippiness you normally get from Savvy B, but it's followed by a kaleidoscope of peach, gardenia, and candied pineapple notes, followed by lemon curd and and tropical fruit flavors. To Chad Stock's credit, the wine is assertive, rich, ripe, and unlike almost any other Sauvignon Blanc you've had before. Jonas Mendoza

Minimus NV Experiment #17 48 Months Sparkling Wine

When we first met Chad Stock, he was pouring a bottle of his Experiment #10 Champagne-method sparkling wine, which was a blend of Pinot Gris and Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel and aged for 24 months on the lees before disgorgement. It was a deep and impressive wine, with bright and tingly spicy stone fruit, savory base notes emerging, and a firm refreshing froth. His inspiration to make sparkling wine was Brut Nature Cava with long lees aging (a worthy fascination that should inform more new-world sparkling wine production). He has now released Experiment #17, which is the same base wine as #10, this time disgorged after 48 months on the lees. Elegance and complexity are not guaranteed to increase with longer lees aging, but in this case the extra two years contributed great length and layers, harnessing the autolytic grit and glamour of our favorite long-aged Cavas. Creamy aromas of almond cake, agrumes, lavender honey, orange blossom, and yellow apple; the palate is dry, textured, long, and lovely, with gentle bubbles permeating the palate of yellow peach, Asian pear, meadow flowers and tea leaves, with gentle yeasty notes of bee pollen, chamomile, silky almond, brine, and a hint of bitter earth. Chad Stock continues to delight us with his bold and brilliant work. Ariana Rolich

Precedent 2014 Lodi Borden Ranch Chenin Blanc Sec

Preceeding our two lovely French Chenin Blancs in our Thanksgiving parade is Precedent, a new wine that is one of the finest Chenins from California, and certainly one of the best values - we urge you to try it.Precedent is the personal project of Nathan Kandler, who is the winemaker at the excellent Thomas Fogarty estate in the Santa Cruz Mountains. If you've never had California Chenin Blanc or you're never been thrilled by one, Precedent is a pure rendition of the grape from 32 year-old vines planted on pink granite and silica-rich quartz soils of in northeast Lodi; foot trodden and whole-cluster pressed (with a portion undergoing a few hours of skin contact), then fermented with native yeasts in used French oak. Fresh aromas of lemon blossom, golden fruit, and peach, with a clear, tingly,  mineral palate of orange citrus and stone fruit, pineapple pith,  chamomile, and a hint of beeswax. Broad yet delicate, distinctive and delicious. Unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur additions. Ariana Rolich

Rhys 2014 Anderson Valley Chardonnay ARRIVES 2/21

This Chardonnay comes from younger vines in Rhys' Anderson Valley's Bearwallow Vineyard, and aged for 14 months in 20% new French oak barrels. Like a riper Chablis, there are notes of zesty lemon, white nectarine, and just-ripe peach. On the palate, lemon juice, lemon pith, and saline flavors with bright acidity and a tight mineral core. A perfect introduction to Rhys' stunning Chardonnays. Jonas Mendoza

Ruth Lewandowski 2014 Mendocino Gibson Ranch 'Naomi'

Evan Lewandoski has accumulated winemaking experience all over the world, but decided to return to Utah to explore the potential of its climate and variegated soil types. The fruit is sourced from Gibson Ranch in Mendocino County's McDowell Valley, trucked to Utah, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented in concrete tank. On the nose, there are notes of lemon rind and peach skin notes; on the palate, flavors of white flowers, creamy pineapple, and ripe nectarine mingle with saline and leesy undertones. Angular and bright, this Grenache Gris would be pair well with roast chicken and even fleshier fish like cod or turbot. Jonas Mendoza

Shacksbury Lost and Found 750 ML

This is a great follow-up to the inaugural releases from Shacksbury! The past two vintages of the Limited Edition releases were a hit with cider geeks and staff members alike, and the first release from the 2015 harvest is equally great. Called Lost and Found, it is made from foraged apples sourced from the Champlain Valley of Vermont, and from heirloom varieties in New Hampshire, most of which were trees originally planted by homesteaders over 100 years ago. It is fermented with native yeasts and goes through secondary fermentation in bottle, with no SO2 added at any time. If you haven’t tried any of the Shacksbury products, you’re seriously missing out.

Shacksbury Classic Dry Cider 500 ML

David Dolginow and Colin Davis created this dry, English-style cider in collaboration with two farms: Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, Vermont and Dragon Orchards in Herefordshire, England. It is a blend of 7 different apple varieties (Browns, Ellis Bitter, Dabinett, Michelin, Jonagold, Spartan, and Somerset Redstreak) that are co-fermented and aged for 6 months before release. It is fresh with aromas of apple, pine, mango, and citrus oil. On the palate, it is dry and clean with minerals, citrus, and ripe apple fruit with medium-sized bubbles. This is a great choice for before, during, or after a holiday feast or for an alternative to beer while watching football. Tim Gagnon

Shacksbury Pet Nat Dry Cider 750 ml

Made from a blend of foraged heirloom varieties of apples and Vermont and English cider apples grown by Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, VT, this cider is made using the Méthode Ancestrale. Just like the grape-based pét nats we all know and love, it is bottled while it is still undergoing fermentation and is aged for two months on the  lees before it is released unfined, unfiltered, and with zero SO2 added. The result is a bone-dry cider with pretty aromas of red berries, ripe pear, and apricot blossom. Gently sparkling and dangerously drinkable, this is one of my favorite releases from Shacksbury to date. Tim Gagnon

Thomas Fogarty 2011 Santa Cruz Mountains Portola Springs Chardonnay

For Nathan Kandler, winemaker at Thomas Fogarty, Portola Springs is the most extreme of their Santa Cruz Chardonnay vineyards, with its very steep slopes and cool marine air influence. The Chardonnay grapes ripen very slowly and yields are frustratingly low. Portola Springs has a characteristic lemon drop and verbena with flavors of lemon oil, sea spray, and dried thyme. Pair with roasted cauilflower or chicken. Jonas Mendoza

Under the Wire 2013 Mendocino Alder Springs Pinot Noir

Under the Wire is a joint project of Morgan Twain-Peterson (of Bedrock fame) and Chris Cottrell developed to explore the potential of sparkling wine in California based on a single vineyard from a single vintage. Alder Springs is is located in far northern Mendocino County just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean; the steep hills, cool nights, and low-vigor soils lead to small yields  of intense flavorful berries.  Wtih a salmon-flesh robe, this sparkling rosé displays red cherry skin and orange peel aromatics, and further reveals ripe strawberry, ruby red grapefruit and blood orange flavors, accompanied by dried thyme and tarragon undertones and a fine, yet firm bead.
