Santa Cruz Mountain Pinot Noir “Branciforte Creek Vineyard” Santa Cruz Mountains 2008 (USA)FEATURED
Deep, bright ruby red color. The nose is dense with the aromas of red and black cherries with accents of allspice, green cardamon, mineral, black pepper, leather, and hints of cedar. The palate echoes the nose with a rich fruit core framed by earth, leather, brown baking spices, oak, and black pepper. Ideally balanced with a nice dose of fresh acidity and moderate tannins. This is not your typical California fruit-bomb rather a complex Pinot showing a careful balance of fruit, earth, and spice. A lovely wine that gets better with each hour opened.
Santa Julia Torrontes [+] Mendoza 2010 (Argentina)FEATURED
Brilliant pale straw color. The nose is amazingly expressive with sweet floral notes in the lead followed by scents of peach, apricot, pineapple, pomelo, and citrus. The palate is more dry and tart than the nose would suggest while still featuring the same fruits and flowers with accents of mineral and lemon zest. Ideally balanced and beautifully proportioned. A charming, “grown-up” version of Torrontés.
Sequana Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Deep, bright cherry red color. The nose is filled with the scents of red and black cherries with accents of rose petal, mineral, allspice, nutmeg, and dry oak notes. The palate is multilayered with ripe cherry and red berries taking the lead with complimenting notes of tart cherry, earth, and brown spice with hints of cigar box and dried herbs. Ideally balanced with the fruit, earth, and spice framed by vibrant dose of acidity that is seamlessly knit with the ripe fruit. A very stylish Pinot that is asking to be paired with grilled tenderloin.
Sonnet Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2006 (USA)FEATURED
Bright ruby red color. The nose reveals a classic Cabernet with vibrant scents of blackberry, black currants, and cherry with accents of plum, cedar, vanilla, and brown spices. The palate fully concurs with the nose offering waves of ripe fruit married with spice, dark chocolate, and hints of earth and oak. Perfectly balanced with grace and populism wrapped in one tasty and value priced Cab. Lovely! A Best Buy.
Sonnet Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2007 (USA)FEATURED
Bright straw color. The nose reveals classic Chardonnay scents of ripe apple and pear with tropical notes as well and accents of lychee, vanilla, and citrus. The palate concurs being perhaps a bit more tart than expected with flavors of crisp apple, grapefruit, and pear taking the lead. Ideally balanced with a judicious dose of fresh acid that makes this a very versatile Chardonnay at the dinner table. Pair it with poached salmon, roasted chicken or simply grab a glass, as it is quite refreshing in its natural state.
Sonnet Merlot Washington 2006 (USA)FEATURED
Brilliant, luminous ruby red color. The nose is fresh with scents of sweet and tart cherries with red currant and hints of mint, tarragon, and subtle notes of earth. The palate concurs with the nose delivering bright, semi-tart cherries with flanking notes of earth, wood, and herbs. Ideally balanced leaning toward the austere and stylish rather than fruit driven and luscious. A great value.
Sonnet Red Columbia Valley 2006 (USA)FEATURED
Bright cherry red color. The nose is wonderfully fresh and fruity with scents of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry with accents of cinnamon, nutmeg, mocha, and red roses. The palate picks up where the nose left off adding texture and vibrancy to the racy fruit. Wonderfully balanced with a great dose of natural acidity and a soft mineral and earth note that rises on the finish. This ideally proportioned wine is more style than flash and a fantastic value. A Best Buy.
Sonnet Riesling Columbia Valley 2008 (USA)FEATURED
Pale straw color. The nose is wonderfully fresh with scents of ripe apricot, peach, pear, and mandarin orange with accents of lime, mineral and hints of ginger. The palate echoes the nose with great freshness and vibrancy that invites the next sip. Ideally balanced with the zesty natural acidity perfectly layered with the ripe fruits and semi-tart citrus notes. A great aperitif and a Best Buy.
Stepping Stone by Cornerstone Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2010 (USA)FEATURED
Brilliant deep ruby color. The beautiful aromatics offer a seamlessly knit tapestry of ripe, yet understated, raspberry, cherry, and red currants with generous supporting efforts from sweet cigar tobacco, mineral, young rosemary, cranberry, toasted oak with subtle hints of vanilla, and nutmeg. The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a soft but broad palate that enters with ripe fruit and evolves to include spice, wood, subtle earth tones and berry compote. The ideally balanced wine is quite fleet of foot while being rich and satisfying. This is a true triumph to create a Cab Franc that offers the perfect dose of fruit without the heavy vegetal notes so often found in wines from this noble varietal. Bravo - once again to Cornerstone.
Stepping Stone by Cornerstone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa County 2010 (USA)FEATURED
Deep ruby red color. The nose is rich while restrained with a beautiful combo of ripe juicy fruits with dried berries supported by accents of mineral, dried herbs, brown baking spices, forest floor, and well-integrated oak tones. The palate echoes the nose delivering a complex Old World-styled Cabernet the likes of which we rarely see from Bordeaux anymore. Ideally balanced with great length and moderate tannins. A superb food wine that is built to collaborate with dinner rather than trample it.
