SPARKLING WINES and DRY ROSE (Still):
1) Daou Rose 2021, Paso Robles (still): $8 This wine is delightfully fragrant and floral, showing lovely aromas of fresh strawberry, sliced peach, and watermelon with nuances of hibiscus, cherry, and clover honey. The palate is refreshingly crisp yet lusciously smooth, revealing juicy flavors of nectarine, orange, strawberry parfait, and golden delicious apple. These primary flavors are underlain by plush, pleasing notes of papaya and honeydew melon, accented with a suggestion of rosehip tea. A long, clean finish lingers with impressions of peach, citrus zest, and Barbados cherry. Blend: 95% Grenache Noir, 5% Sauvignon Blanc.
2) Michel Briday Cremant de Bourgogne: $11 Jeb Dunnuck 90 pts. Checks in as 40% each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with the balance Aligote. Hand-harvested and traditionally made, and aged 12-16 months in bottle before release, it has a classy, Champagne-like nose of stone fruits, toasted break, and honeyed citrus to go with a rounded, fleshy, impressively textured profile on the palate. It has a vibrant mousse, building richness, and a soft, incredibly drinkable style.
3) R. Pouillon Rose’ de Maceration Brut N.V.: $18 This wine is 100% pinot noir from the premier cru Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Fabrice macerates the juice on the skins for up to 12 hours before it is pressed and fermented in enamel. Then 20% of the juice is raised in neutral barrel and the rest is blended with the previous year’s wine which was in barrel for 12 months. Doing so allows Fabrice to balance the tannins which naturally come from saignée rosé with the mellowness which comes from a year in neutral barrel. “You must smell the color,” says Fabrice. This blend is 80% 2014, 20% 2013 with 7 grams MCR.
4) Bisol Jeio Cuvee Rose Vino Spumante Rose, Veneto: $7 Winemaker notes: Delicate rose color with fine and persistent perlage. Elegant, complex bouquet on the nose with scents of rose, hints of fresh fruits and lychees. The sip is full, sapid, harmonious, with a well-balanced acidity. 50% Merlot, 50% Pinot Noir.
5) Hirsch Kammern Gruner Vetliner 2019, Kamptal: $11 The loess and loam soils that lie on the outer rims of Kammern, the traditional wine-growing village, are among the most fascinating terroirs in Kamptal. This gives our wines great aromatics with spicy and supple taste.Great food wine. James Suckling 92 pts.: Sliced lemons and honey with some walnuts and stone. It’s medium-bodied with a pretty core of fruit and a walnut undertone at the end. Pineapple, too.
6) Argyle Nuthouse Chardonnay 2013, Willamette: $12 This wine comes from the Lone Star vineyard (40%) the Knudsen vineyard (40%) and the Spirit Hill vineyard (20%). The wine was aged on lees for 12 months in 20% new French oak prior to bottling. This elegant Chard begins with fruity aromas of Meyer lemon, peach pit and orange blossom. This leads to flavors of lemon curd, vanilla cream and poached pear. Layered and viscous wine that is hard to resist right now.
7) Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2020: $12 Winemaker notes: Pale and vibrant in color. The Pascal Jolivet Sancerre is fresh, clean and screaming with racy acidity. On the palate it is fresh and tightly wound; acidity is tempered by very subtle residual sugar; very clean; alive, racy, youthful. Overall, a dry and elegant wine.
7) Langlois-Chateau Sancerre 2020, Loire: $11 Winemaker notes: Langlois-Chateau’s Sancerres are serious and complex but also delicate and approachable. They’re benchmarks for the appellation. The grapes are from a selection of the best vineyard plots. They undergo a gentle pressing to extract the purest juice and are handled exclusively in stainless steel.
8) Schug Estate Pinot Noir 2013 Carneros: $13 A bouquet reminiscent of roses, ripe cherries, and a meaty smokiness lead to savory flavors of black cherry and plum, finishing with hints of tobacco and spicy new oak.
9) Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Napa Valley: $13 Notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hits of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish. Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Merlot.
10) Terredora Dipaolo Fatica Contadina Taurasi DOCG 2013: $11 Intense ruby color with garnet reflections, pronounced complex nose with hints of black cherry, spicy scents of violet and tobacco, as well as tar and mineral notes. Full-bodied, elegant, smooth, velvety and intense on the palate, with balanced tannins and aromatic intensity. Excellent cellaring potential, with bottle age adding to the wine’s complexity. Aglianico.
11) Klinker Brick Old Ghost Old Vine Zinfandel 2016, Lodi: $12 Winemaker notes: The Old Ghost represents the best Zinfandel that Klinker Brick produces each year. Brambleberry fruit aromas intermingled with anise, clove and exotic spice, echo previous vintages. Smaller berries harvested from this vineyard block tend to offer more “skin to flesh,” providing a greater level of smooth yet firm tannin and structure to this wine. Pair with your prime porterhouse or grilled lamb.
