Duckhorn Merlot 2017, Napa Valley$52.00
The 2017 growing season yielded a beautifully complex expression of Napa Valley Merlot, with inviting aromas of fresh black raspberry, vanilla, tea leaves, pie crust and licorice.

Portalupi Pinot Noir 2017, Dolinsek Ranch, Russian River Valley$59.00
In 1996, Jim Dolinsek purchased the 10.5 acres property located on Laguna road that was then planted with apples and grapes. Jim’s father coincidently used to pick cherries on the ranch in the 30’s. The ranch was originally planted by the Frati family which included Old Vine Zinfandel. The vineyard has a rich Italian history of making field-blends including Alicante bouschet, teraldago, tempranillo, golden chasselas, black muscat and mouverde. The soil is the rich Russian River Valley Gold Ridge soil that provides complexity and muscle to the wines.
Tim Borges of Portalupie Winery has known Jim and his brother for over 30 years and had the good fortune to start working with Dolinsek Ranch with the first vintage of Zinfandel in 2009. In 2013, Portalupi started purchasing the entire crop of Pinot Noir. Portalupi has been producing award winning Old Vine Zinfandel and Pinot Noir since.
Baked bread and compost aromas compete with oak toastiness and ripe dark cherry in this wine, which veers into a beautiful velvety mouthfeel.
Lamborn Family Vineyards “The Gratitude Vintage” Zinfandel 2017, Howell Mountain Napa Valley USA$59.00
“The dense ruby garnet hue perfectly sets the stage for the rich, pure tones of black cherry, black plum, and blueberry compote aromas. A subtle hint of inviting toasty vanilla rounds off Scene One as this luscious Zinfandel story begins. Multilayered arrays of mouthwatering red and black fruits take the spotlight, offering depth and concentration mid-palate with a deliciously lengthy finish that will leave you cheering for more. Yet another elegant Zinfandel from the Lamborn’s mountaintop vineyard, this wine will steal the show.” – Heidi Barrett, winemaker
