SPARKLING WINES and DRY ROSE (Still):
1) Domaine Gavoty Clarendon Rose 2021, Cotes de Provence: $11 “Bernard Gavoty, in his articles for Le Figaro, often wrote under the curious Anglophone pseudonym Clarendon, and this cuvée—produced from the domaine’s oldest Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan vines (dating back to the early 1960s)—honors his memory. “Clarendon” combines a touch of saignée with the juice from the first pressing, striking a balance between vinosity and brisk drinkability. “Clarendon” sits easily alongside the Bandol from Château Pradeaux or the Palette from Château Simone as a rosé that is more than flattered by a bit of bottle age.”
2) Bermejo Listan Negro Rosado Brut Nature, Lanzarote, Canary Islands: $12 This rosé of listán negro tastes like red fruit from some distant planet. Maybe it’s like cherimoya. Or guanabana. Or strawberry tops and roses. The coastal buzz is amped up by the volcanic soils, turning a pale pink wine dynamic. Summer in a glass. 92 points, Wine & Spirits (Jun 2021)
3) Brundlmayer Brut Rose Reserve N.V.: $17 Winemaker notes: Light salmon hue with red-golden reflections. A fine persistent mousse, delicate but very animated. The fruit & spice aroma gives undertones of cherries and wild strawberries, a bit of citrus and caramel and yeast notes. Fruity and creamy with an underlying complexity on the palate; also elegant acidity and a minerally extract. Remarkably harmonious structure.
4) King Estate Brut Cuvee 2016, Willamette Valley Oregon: $13 Winemaker notes: A luxurious nose awakens the senses with aromas that carry through to the palate: bruised apple, lemon and flowers along with toast, biscuit, fresh bread, slate and walnut. Tiny bubbles create an excellent mousse followed by bright and fresh acidity that rounds out nicely on the mid-palate. Stark and yet elegant acidity on the finish provides backbone with a complexity that lingers. Blend: 83% Pinot Noir, 17% Chardonnay.
5) KB by Knight’s Bridge Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Knight’s Valley: $11 Elevated aromas of citrus blossom, kaffir lime and honeycomb burst from the glass. Flavors of Meyer lemon, mint and wildflower honey seamlessly weave together, leading to a refreshing mineral finish reminiscent of the first spring rains.
6) Lucia Chardonnay 2014, Santa Lucia Highlands: $12 According to the winery: “Lucia Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from the Pisoni and Soberanes Vineyards. This wine is a wonderful representation of the Santa Lucia Highlands and these estate vineyards. The goal is to create a ‘world-class’ appellation blend; barrels for this wine are hand selected, just as for the single-vineyard wines.”
7) Tablas Creek Vineyard, Paso Robles Patelin de Tablas Blanc 2015: $8 Wine Spectator – 93 pts. “Vibrant and mouthwatering, with green apple, Meyer lemon and dried pineapple flavors that are fresh and juicy. Lemon verbena and lime sherbet notes reverberate on the long, detailed finish. Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne.”
8) Copain “Tous Ensemble” Pinot Noir 2015, Mendocino County: $9 Winemaker notes: The 2015 Tous Ensemble Pinot Noir’s aroma is layered with fresh red fruits, rose petal, and vanilla. The body is redolent of damson plums, red apple skin and bing cherries, with a silky texture and smooth tannins.
9) Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 2020, Paso Robles: $12 Winemaker notes: Deep ruby in color, Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied by subtle smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish powerful wine is layered with juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean, and brown butter. It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of bright acidity and firm polished tannins.
10) Three Wine Company CMZ Red Wine 2015, Contra Costa & Napa County: $13 34% Zinfandel, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Mourvèdre, 10% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane, & 2% Cinsault. Black raspberry bouquet with a hint of cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is tasty red plum and mild minerality with notes of black cherry and blackberry.
11) Domaine Gramenon Sierra du Sud 2019, Cotes du Rhone: $11 Kermit Lynch import. A pure Syrah bottling from the land of Grenache. Syrah soaks up its surroundings as if it were at home, offering wild flavors of the Provençal countryside gently wrapped in a thick coat of tooth-staining deep purple fruit. The cool nights at elevation confer lovely freshness to this unhindered expression of southern sunshine.
