  1. K Vintners Grenache The Boy 2016
    WS93
    JD97
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    In the running for the best Grenache from Washington, the 2016 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard is a single vineyard release from a site in the Walla Walla Valley and was brought up in neutral oak. It has a Rayas-like perfume of rose petals, black raspberries, cherries, spice, and smoked meat. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, thrilling textured, seamless Grenache that has a stacked mid-palate, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. Hats off to the team at K Vintners for this incredible Grenache! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  2. Wrath Pinot Noir Monterey Swan and 828 2016
    JD93
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  The 2016 Pinot Noir Swan/828 is slightly darker in style, with more forest floor, wood smoke, and earthy dark fruits all giving way to a medium-bodied, concentrated, nicely balanced Pinot Noir that shows the elegant, complex style of the vintage nicely. It's another classic Pinot Noir from this estate that's well worth seeking out. - Jeb Dunnuck

  3. Wrath Pinot Noir Monterey Pommard 4 and 777 2016
    JD93
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  One of my favorites in the lineup is the 2016 Pinot Noir Pommard 4/777, which has a more Old World feel in its black cherry, earth, stems, and forest floor aromas and flavors. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, charming, and supple, with a soft, forward style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

  4. Bold Wine Co. Pinot Noir Monterey 2017
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The story here seems typical of this producer, and focuses on the Balestra Vineyard which lies just north of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, on a very cold climate benchland property owned and farmed by a multi-generational family of farmers. Because it is closer to the valley to the sea, the wines from the property always show a certain bright, fruit-forward character which is often balanced out by a judicious inclusion of whole clusters during fermentation. There’s a lovely texture here and a dusty, musky presentation of dark cherry and ripe cranberry fruit kissed with a little bit of woodsiness and some elements of spice. For a generally savory Pinot, the edges are rounded and engaging and the wine has both flesh and lift to create a very pleasing experience in the glasss. The terroir nuances rise above anything you can typically buy at this kind ofrprcie. We think the ‘Bold’ wines present a pretty exciting option in a price range like this and there is legitimate excitement as to whether Miller has do with these in the purchases moving forwards. They are certainly off to an impressive start given what we see here. With only a few hundred cases this isn’t going to be a game changer for the market as a whole. But it will certainly prove shrewd value ‘harvest’ for those that move quickly. Learn More
  5. Bold Wine Co. Sauvignon Blanc Monterey 2018
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    No one we know thinks of the Arroyo Seco area as a hotbed for Sauvignon Blanc. But maybe that’s because they haven't been looking in the right place. Miller found Zabala Vineyards in one of the warmest subsections of this narrow west-facing valley shielded by the Santa Lucia Mountains. Planted in 1972, it is one of Monterey County’s oldest vineyards with soils of sandy loam covered with round riverbed stones. The vineyard is family-owned, impeccably cared-for, and certified organic. The Bold Wine Co. Sauvignon Blanc Monterey 2018 itself is an intriguing expression of the varietal. There is plenty of richness in the herb-laced grapefruit, melon and pear fruit, plenty of freshness while the acids are not overly aggressive, and a remarkable sense of harmony. It lacks the edgy bite that a lot of California Sauvignons possess and rather presents a rounder yet still lifted presentation of the varietal. For under $20, it is an excellent choice and given the production (a mere 268 cases of wine) we’d consider this pretty much ‘insider trading. Learn More
