Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

"Concentrated ripe yellow plum, dried powdery white flowers, moist earth, tar and red cherry abound on the nose. The oak is well integrated showing cedar, toast and vanilla. Even in a moist vintage the 2011 Helms expresses its roots with dusty Rutherford tannins that balance and broaden the mid palate and finish. The wine builds seamlessly on the finish showing wonderful energy in this youthful cabernet. It should age comfortably for 10-15 years." —winemaker

Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 2011

"The centerpiece of the portfolio, Gaja Barbaresco is a testament to the Gaja family's historic commitment to the appellation and its belief that Barbaresco stands proudly with the great growing regions of the world. The Gaja winery stopped sourcing fruit from other growers in 1961 in order to ensure the utmost quality in its wines. In all, Gaja Barbaresco is produced using grapes grown in 14 vineyards in the village of Barbaresco. Garnet in color, the nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents. Long, complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit." —importer

Maritana La Riviere Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

"This is the name (meaning the River) for our blend of vineyards in 2017. It is about 55% (Dutton Ranch) Shop Block 1967; 42% Big River Vineyard; 3% (Dutton Ranch) Hansen Hill Vineyard Chardonnay and includes – Old Wente Clone from both Hansen Hill and Big River, Clone 04 from Big River and a combination of an old Massale selection and Dijon Clone 76 at Shop Block 1967. It is entirely barrel fermented in 90% once-used French Oak barrels and 10% new French Oak barrels – sur lies aged – 100% ML complete. The percentage of new oak for future vintages will probably be no more than 10%. The blend came together about two months ago and has really married in the barrel. There is a lot of pear, apple, citrus to go with a gentle background note of lees and barrel spice. It’s got excellent acidity and presents a bright fully refreshing character." —winemaker

Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Diabas Riesling 2016

"The unique dark basalt rock (Diabas) that gives the wine its name delivers a deep, smoky lemon minerality skulking in narrow alleys and seeping into dark doorways like the villain in a Victorian mystery novel. Enter our heroine, the residual sweetness, to bring light back to our story and draw out the weightless purity and floral lace that the 2016 vintage has come to embody. Steely citrus and green apple aromas shine a blinding spotlight into the mineral mist while savory spice and a racy, low-cut acidity delivers straight-out sex appeal. A fine grapefruit cliffhanger finish -- the only thing to do now is relish the last sip and eagerly await next year’s sequel. A sweeter counterpoint to the dry flagship GG." - winemaker
