These are my current offerings.

 

2015 Hirsch Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

2015 Hirsch Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Price: $56.00
Qty.  

I had only two barrels of Hirsch Pinot Noir in 2015. Yields can be unreliable in the Sonoma Coast, and they were especially so in 2015. The closer to the ocean the more difficult it was. Fortunately, the wine is superb. I only wish there were more of it!


2015 "The Habitat" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

2015 "The Habitat" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Price: $45.00
Qty.  

The Habitat is often my personal favorite among my various offerings. Is it the best wine? Depends upon your point of view, I suppose. But in the best years, and 2015 is one of those years, it combines pure ripe fruit, liveliness, precision and deliciousness in a way that, to me, is the holy grail of new world Pinot Noir. 


2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Price: $35.00
Qty.  

For the first time, my Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend. About 2/3 from La Cruz vineyard in the Petaluma Gap (source of my Chardonnay from the beginning) and 1/3 from the Barlow Homestead vineyard in Sebastopol. Ripe fruit from La Cruz, precision and cut from Barlow. They work well together!


2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir

2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir

Price: $35.00
Qty.  

It is here at last, the 2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir. From the highly touted 2015 vintage. An excellent year for Pinot Noir in the north coast of California. 


2015 "El Galpon" Pinot Noir

2015 "El Galpon" Pinot Noir

Price: $30.00
Qty.  

"El Galpon" roughly translated from Spanish means "the shed" or maybe "the workshop," which makes it related to "The Shop." Which it is--the grapes come from the same vineyard and the only difference between this wine and the "regular" Shop is that it was aged entirely in concrete, rather than in barrel. This gives the wine a freshness and immediacy that turns it in the direction of fun rather than serious. Which as you know, is one of the things that I think there should be more of in the wine business.
