Taste  great wines on sale  at great prices. Every Saturday at 3pm. Here’s my take on last Saturday’s offering:
Adami Prosecco, bone dry, the Champagne lover’s Prosecco with more bracing zesty citrus notes and mineral accents.
White Elephant; ripe and round with a crisp finish, lovely floral component from the Viognier, the day’s mystery wine that we enjoyed unwinding
Rootstock Chard and San Felice Chianti were textbook examples of their types. Very well made, very enjoyable and true to it’s varietal nature. Note that the
Chianti has 10% of a long lost native Italian variety that’s been  rescued by San Felice
Alta Maria Pinot from Santa Barbara, rocks! gorgeous nose, good acid balance, showing very pretty.
Quinta Noval 20 Year Old Tawny, always been one of my favorites, nutty, caramel, sugary black coffee, try it with pecan pie for a slice of heaven.
Adami Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Brut Bosco di Gica NV
91 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2010
“Adami’s NV Prosecco Superiore Bosco di Gica emerges from the glass with mineral-infused white fruit, smoke and crushed rocks in an intense, serious style of Prosecco I find appealing. This is Lot 36 0. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.” -Antonio Galloni

Vinum White Elephant 2011

“White Elephant is a magical blend of barrel fermented Chenin Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier. Light straw color with beautiful tropical aromas of mango, guava and passion fruit. These carry forward into the palate and with it comes superior acidity from the core base of Chenin Blanc, which shows exquisite citrus such as lemon / lime, meyer lemon and key lime. The finish is long and generous with peach, apricot, pear grit and honey comb with excellent minerality. The wine finishes with custard-like cream flavors and honey comb.” -The Winery


Routestock Cellars Chardonnay Carneros 2011
88 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2013
“Displaying a Chablis-like light yellow/gold color, it offers fresh lemon zest, honeysuckle, tangerine and wet rock-like notes with a slight floral undertone. Medium-weight, elegant, pure and well-balanced, it should drink well for 1-2 years.” -Robert Parker

San Felice Chianti Classico 2010
92 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2013
“A classically styled wine, the 2010 Chianti Classico San Felice is composed of Sangiovese with additions of Colorino and Pugnitello…The wine is rich with tart plum, rose petal and dried cherry. The palate offers smooth, velvety tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.” -Monica Larner
Also: 90 Points – Wine Spectator, August 2013  


Alta Maria Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2010

Alta Maria Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2010 — BUY NOW! (on sale through 11.07.13)

90 Points – Wine & Spirits
“This harnesses dramatic ripeness without over-reaching, offering enough length and freshness to support its dense layers of blackberry-laden fruit. Grippy tannins provide a structural counterpoint to that sumptuousness, suggesting the appetizing bitterness of carob and setting the wine up for roasted pork loin.”
Also: 88 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2012  


Quinta do Noval 20 Year Old Tawny Port
92 Points – Wine Spectator, June 2011
“An elegant, delicate Tawny, with a full raft of dried white fruit, toffee, cream and butter flavors. The bright finish offers pear tart and spice notes, with suave, smoky overtones. Drink now. 100 cases imported.” -Kim Marcus


San Felice Chianti Classico 2010 See detailsSan Felice Chianti Classico 2010

92 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2013
“A classically styled wine, the 2010 Chianti Classico San Felice is composed of Sangiovese with additions of Colorino and Pugnitello. This second grape once faced extinction and has recently seen a small renaissance thanks to the efforts of San Felice’s winemaking team. The wine is rich with tart plum, rose petal and dried cherry. The palate offers smooth, velvety tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.” -Monica Larner 

90 Points – Wine Spectator, August 2013
“Ripe and smooth, featuring a spine of acidity and tannins that keeps the cherry, tobacco and underbrush flavors focused, with a firm finish and fine length. Best from 2015 through 2022. 30,000 cases made.” -Bruce Sanderson

WOW-Rich’s Wine Of the Week of Oct 28, 2013 New Vintage of Opus One

Wine & Spirits in The News? Comments Off on WOW-Rich’s Wine Of the Week of Oct 28, 2013 New Vintage of Opus One
Opus One 2010 Flat Out Gorgeous!

Our allocation of the 2010 Opus One just came in, it is the orignal and iconic CaliFrench wine created as a collaboration between Robert Mondavi and the Baron Rothschild on a Bordeaux inspired California wine. In a recent retrospective tasting Antonio Galloni, former reviewer for Wine Advocate, dubbed it “picture perfect” and “flat out gorgeous”. This is at a tasting of ALL 34 vintages of Opus ever made!

Here are some excerpts on the new wine from Winesearcher.com’s recent article:

Napa Valley winery releases 2010 vintage as it prepares to start this year’s harvest.
By | Posted Thursday, 05-Sep-2013

…The renowned Napa Valley Bordeaux blend was released to U.S. distributors and French négociants on Monday, and will go on sale in America on October 1.

…Even before it hits retail shelves at $253 a bottle, Opus One‘s 2010 release has been dubbed “picture perfect” by leading wine critic Antonio Galloni, which is high praise for a vintage that the winemaker calls his “most challenging” ever.

Winemaker Michael Silacci told Wine-Searcher: “I’m very pleased that he’s appreciating our wine.” While he admitted it was a tough call to describe it as the best vintage at this early stage in the wine’s life…. But 2010 wasn’t an easy year: it was “the most challenging vintage I’ve ever been through,” admitted Silacci.  It was unseasonably cool with “unexpected rainfall” in the early part of the season. Silacci explained that in August many growers were leaf plucking to expose their fruit to the sun and allow better air flow  to prevent any mildew developing but he decided to keep the leaves on the vine to give them shade, predicting a heat spell ahead. Indeed, there was a heat spike in late August and early September, which hastened ripening. While they had initially expected to harvest in October, the fruit was “ready” by September 19…

…On the question of consistency, Silacci pointed out that Opus One has had “fairly consistent sourcing since the 1990s, always using fruit from the Te Kalon vineyard.” However, when he arrived at the company in 2001, it was the first time that someone at the winery was working solely on Opus One. “That helps with the consistency.” Silacci describes the wine as having “very complex taste aromas,” including an earthy note, black cherry, cassis, and a hint of chocolate. “With the mouthfeel the acidity to me is just beautiful. Not bright, but a glow – like a lighthouse.”

Total 2010 production was 25,000 cases, of which 50 percent will be sent abroad…

My faves that day were: The Godello, Pazos del Rey, very plump fruity, floral and round. The Venta La Ossa Syrah, a nice departure from the typical varietals (Tempranillo and Grenache) we get from Spain. The El Templari was a hit with everyone and the South AFrican “extra credit” wine we opened was very good. It is a Stellenbosch Bordeaux blend called “Altus” from a winery called Dombeya.
Pazos del Rey Pazo de Monterrey Monterrei 2012
90 Points – International Wine Cellar, September/October 2013
“(100% godello): Pale gold. Complex scents of citrus zest, pear, flowers and smoky minerals. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and gain depth and spiciness with air. A ripe melon note comes up on the smooth, spicy, very persistent finish.” -Josh Raynolds

Vinhas das Lebres Alentejo 2011
“A blend of Aragones, Trincadeira and Alfrocheiro. Aromas of blackberries, currants with a strong spicy character. Full, rounded and smooth on the palate with amelow finish. Excellent match for beef Stroganoff, steak and Kidney Pie.” -The Importer

Pazos del Rey Sila Mencia Monterrei 2010
90 Points – International Wine Cellar, September 2012
“Bright violet color. Aromas of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and black cardamom are complicated by cracked pepper and herbal nuances. Suave on entry, then tighter in the middle, with good lift to the flavors of red berry, violet and minerals. Finishes with gentle tannic grip and very good spicy persistence.” -Josh Raynolds

Bodegas Obalo Rioja 2012
90 Points – International Wine Cellar, September/October 2013
“Bright purple. Dark berry and floral pastille aromas are complicated by notes of cola and fresh rose. Juicy blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors show very good depth, with a peppery element adding energy. Becomes brighter and sweeter with air and finishes on a floral note, with silky tannins adding shape.” -Josh Raynolds

Pago Venta la Ossa Syrah Vino de la Tierra Castilla 2009
Rating and review for previous vintage:
88(+?) Points – International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2010
“Glass-staining ruby. Deep, smoky aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice and espresso, intensified by a sexy vanilla quality. Dense and chewy, with dusty tannins adding grip to the finish. Lots of material here; the wine becomes spicier with air but it needs aeration, or maybe a little more bottle age.” -Josh Raynolds

Celler Barbara Fores El Templari Terra Alta 2010

Celler Barbara Fores El Templari Terra Alta 2010
90 Points – International Wine Cellar, September/October 2012
“Vivid ruby-red. A spicy, perfumed bouquet evokes fresh strawberry and raspberry, with bright mineral top note. Gently sweet, with sappy red berry flavors and zesty, balancing acidity. Fresh and sharply focused, with delicate tannins adding back-end grip.” -Josh Raynolds


WOW-Rich’s Wines Of the Week October 21, 2013 Napa & Sonoma-Betty & Veronica

Wine & Spirits in The News? Comments Off on WOW-Rich’s Wines Of the Week October 21, 2013 Napa & Sonoma-Betty & Veronica
Amapola Creek Cab on Sale

These two have so much in common yet are a study in contrasts. Napa Valley vs. slopes of Mayacamas range in Sonoma.  Winery established in the 1800’s vs Winery founded in 2001. But both are ultimate expressions of their individual terroir and the brilliant winemakers crafting the wines. Oh, both are on sale too.

Amapola Review:  92 Points – Wine Advocate, February 2012
“The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive dark cherries, plums, graphite, grilled herbs and licorice. The fruit shows lovely density and richness, while the aromatics are starting to become expressive. The 2008 should start drinking well in another few years and continue to improve for another decade, if not significantly longer. The 2008 is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, aged 24 months in oak, 80% French and 20% American. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.” -Antonio Galloni

Freemark Abbey Review: 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast, September 2013
“This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. It epitomizes the Napa quality of power married to finesse. Winemaker Ted Edwards deserves kudos for producing a high-production Cabernet (34,000 cases) this good, from a difficult vintage. It’s dry and balanced, with rich, complex blackberry, sage and sweet oak flavors.” -Steve Heimoff

“At Fidencio Mezcal all of our agave is at least ten years old. We practice biodynamic farming; always harvesting in the new moon. The Agave for the Clasico are roasted in the traditional method in a stone lined earthen pit. A fire of Encino, the local black oak, is lit in the pit, which heats up the stones. When the fire goes out and the stones are hot, the Agave is piled in the pit and buried. After three days the smoky maguey is ready. Fidencio Clasico is distilled twice in a traditional, wood fired, simple Alembic. This still is very similar to the stills used in Cognac. After the second distillation, we add a touch of water, and bottle at 44% alcohol.” -The Distillery

Fidencio Pechuga is created by distilling undiluted Clasico along with the traditional mixture of quince, apples, bananas, pineapple and guava. A whole chicken breast, skinned and washed, is hung from the cap of the still, which is said to soften the intensity and round out the flavor of the mezcal. Bottled once a year at 45.4% alcohol, production is extremely limited.” -The Distillery

The name, Town Branch, commemorates the body of water that currently runs under Lexington, on which Lexington was founded. Town Branch, once the lifeblood of Lexington, is again bringing joy to Lexingtonians and bourbon lovers alike. Aged in new, charred white oak barrels, Town Branch is infused with a golden amber honey color, which is your inviting introduction to this masterfully crafted bourbon. Pleasant woody and oaky aromas lead into caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and hints of cherry. The lavish and complex flavors are smooth and sweet with a gentle warming leading to a long finish.” -The Distillery

La Crema Pinot Gris Monterey 2012
“Bright and balanced, this wine opens with aromas of fresh white peach, Meyer lemon and subtle floral hints. The lush palate is layered with flavors of ripe pear, yellow plum, baking spice and exotic tropical notes. Mineral undertones are evident in the lengthy finish, further defining this wine as classic Monterey.” -The Winery

Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard 2011

Cambria Chardonnay Katherine’s Vineyard 2011
90 Points – Wine & Spirits Magazine
“This chardonnay carries a lot of oak, while underneath the fruit is charming, open and sufficiently edgy, with flavors of dried pineapple and lime. It has a structural grip that suggests more than oak is in play—something rocky and mineral, perhaps contributed by Cambria’s extensive holdings of deep-rooted vines from the 1970s and ’80s. Best Buy.”

Carmel Road Pinot Noir Monterey 2012

WOW-Rich’s Wines Of the Week of October 7, 2013 Andrew Murray’s California “Rhone Rangers”

Wine & Spirits in The News? No Comments
Andrew Murray RGB on saleBuy The White Rhone Ranger Rhone Ranger Red on saleBuy The Red Rhone Ranger

 

Rhone Ranger is the cute name for wineries and winemakers that specialize in grape varieties associated with the Rhone Valley of France rather than the more familiar varieties associated with Bordeaux and Burgundy.  It makes sense because the climate of California is closer to that of southern France than the relatively cooler regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, and so Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre are red grape varieties that flourish in California as do Rousanne, and Grenache Blanc among other white varieties.

I want to highlight these two “Rhone Rangers” from the Andrew Murray winery in Santa Barbara. They were a big hit at last weekend’s tasting, I even took home  the leftovers for myself. The white called “RGB”  (Rousanne and Grenache Blanc) is ripe with lots of tree fruit flavors,  a round fleshy feel, and enough acid to lift it up. The Syrah is intense with an inky color but very sleek on the palate and beautifully aromatic. Here is some background from noted Rhone wine expert Jeb Dunnuck, who now writes for Wine Advocate, and some technical info on the RGB white blend from the winery itself. These Andrew Murray wines will be deeply discounted for the coming week, or until we run out.

“Starting off the single vineyard Syrahs, the 2011 Syrah Watch Hill Vineyard (co-fermented with 4% Viognier) is an outstanding Syrah that has brilliantly pure blackberry, raspberry, liquid flower and wild herb aromas and flavors to go with a medium-bodied, surprisingly ripe (this is a cool site) and textured mouthfeel. Clean, balanced and elegant, it’s a beautifully done Syrah meant for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. Drink now-2017.” -Jeb Dunnuck

“The RGB is named for the blend of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc, which is a typical white wine blend found in and around the small villages in the south of France. Typically Roussanne, which is more difficult to ripen and thus more rare, takes a backseat to the Grenache Blanc, which is a more neutral tasting grape. We like to richen up this blend a bit and include more of the robust Roussanne. The resulting blend is nearly a 50-50 balance between the two varieties. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and then fermented and aged together in a small, temperature controlled stainless tank. This early blending allowed the flavors to come together more completely. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to neutral French Burgundy barrels to allow a bit more oxygen into the wine, which acted to soften and round out the final wine. The aroma of this wine explodes with white flowers, green apple, a tropical/banana note, and a flinty/minerally note. The aromas find their way onto the palate where you will sense a long, round, viscous mouthfeel made complex with a racy acidity. The RGB is clean, fresh, and ready to drink. It should, however, improve over the next couple of years.” -The Winery
