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) Champagne Moutard Rose Brut: $12 Ample nose with hints of red fruit and the forest floor. Full-bodied palate with good persistence and excellent balance. 100% Pinot Noir. 

3) Champagne Guy Larmandier Rose Premier Cru N.V.: $18 One of the most underrated estates in the Côte des Blancs, the Guy Larmandier name is a testament to finesse over power. The style is dominated by Chardonnay from the village of Vertus, the over-performing Premier Cru and where the legendary houses (like Bollinger, Taittinger, and Roederer) also farm and source grapes. Following the traditional practice of blending, it’s a splash of red wine made from Pinot Noir that gives this rosé its eye-candy hue and mouth watering red fruits. Imported by Rosenthal Wine Merchant, all Guy Larmandier Champagnes are left on their lees until destined for the US market, to ensure integrity and freshness. Bottled unfined with a minimal dosage (6 g/l), the purity of terroir unrolls in the glass and sums-up the very best of Vertus — cold chalk, baked clay, and a hint of citrus spice.

4) Emmolo Sparkling Wine No. 4 N.V., Monterey County, Sonoma County, Santa Barbara County: $11 New from the Wagner, Caymus family! Winemaker notes: A blush gold with warm copper highlights, this wine features bright scents of flower blossom, barely ripened white peach, kumquat and lemon/lime, with underlying notes of vanilla wafer, wet stone, and a hint of new leather. Entry on the palate is soft, then expands as kumquat and white peach carry over from the nose, along with dried apricot, lime, and the character of a passing ocean breeze. Extremely fine bubbles provide an elegant presence through to the finish, which trails off with fresh leather, lingering fruit, and subtly vibrant acidity that calls you back for another sip. 

WHITE WINES 

5) Riley’s Rows Sauvignon Blanc 2019, CA: $10 The 2019 Riley’s Rows Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from the Redwood Valley Grape Ranch which was farmed in Mendocino County. The wine offers a bright nose of Papaya and Honeydew Melon. The palate opens with ripe Meyer Lemon and resolves into a delightful Ruby Red Grapefruit note. 

6) Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay 2014, Santa Lucia Highlands: $14 “100% Chardonnay sourced from the Sonoma Coast. 50% Michael Mara Vineyard and the remaining sourced from the Russian River AVA. Predominantly Clone 4 with a portion of Old Wente clone. Aged on the lees for 6 months and in neutral French oak for a total of 8 months. A portion of the barrels were fermented with native yeast while the rest was inoculated with champagne yeast. 340 cases produced.” -Winery 

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 favors that are fresh and juicy. Lemon verbena and lime sherbet notes reverberate on the long, detailed finish. Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne.” 

RED WINES 

8) Bravium Pinot Noir 2018, Anderson Valley: $11 Winemaker notes: From the far reaches of Mendocino County, this powerful wine is characterized by fresh red apple, strawberry, and raspberry fruit, with woodsmoke, damp soil, and pennyroyal tea notes. A soft, juicy entry delivers intense cherry flavors, with a touch of mocha and spice. Velvet-textured, with medium acidity and fine-grained tannins, the earthy finish serves up saline minerality that speaks to this wine’s coastal vineyard origins. 

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) Beni di Batasiolo Barbaresco 2017: $13 Rated 91 by James Suckling Nice aromas and flavors of wild strawberries, almost strawberry jam, with a hint of mild spice. Medium-bodied with fine, lightly firm tannins and a crisp finish. Drink or hold. 

11) Gehricke Zinfandel 2019, Russian River Valley: $10 Winemaker notes: With a deep magenta hue, fruit forward aromas leap from the glass with blackberry cobbler, ripe red cherries, milk chocolate, smooth leather and a touch of white pepper. Similar in fashion, the palate boasts flavors of raspberry jam and ripe red plums surrounded by a juicy acidity. The finish is round and lasting, driven by a complex oak spice. Blend: 95% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah.
