Favia "Quarzo" Amador County Syrah 2015

An ethereal red from husband and wife superstars, winemaker Andy Erickson and viticulturalist Annie Favia.
95 Wine Advocate
(12/13/2018) "Deep garnet purple colored, the 2015 Quarzo Syrah (100% Syrah) has quite an earthy, savory nose of smoked meats, fungi, black pepper and chargrill with a core of warm black plums, blackberry compote and licorice plus a touch of charcoal. Full-bodied and firm, with beautifully rounded tannins, it has a wonderfully generous core and loads of layers, finishing long and spicy. Serious stuff! 289 cases produced. Drink Date 2018 - 2034."

Gallica "Suzuri Series-Shake Ridge Ranch" Amador Red Blend 2014

A gorgeous Cali red from Rosemary Cakebread!
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The 2014 Red Wine Shake Ridge Vineyard, Rosemary Cakebread's GSM blend, is rich and deeply expressive, with the Grenache character very much front and center. Sweet red cherry, mint, tobacco, cedar and pomegranate are given an extra kick of aromatic intensity and translucency through the inclusion of 50% whole clusters. Gracious and light on its feet, the 2014 speaks to graciousness above all else. The blend is The blend is 53% Syrah, 34% Grenache, 11% Mourvèdre and 2% Viognier."

(1/31/2019) "Another release from the Sierra Foothills, the 2016 Lithic comes from vines planted in 2002 and 2006 and is a blend of 41% Grenache, 32% Mourvedre, and the rest Syrah that saw some stems in the ferments and 16 months in 15% new, larger barrels. This medium to full-bodied effort has beautiful elegance and purity as well as a great nose of blueberries, ground pepper, wild strawberries, and violets. It's another Chateauneuf du Pape look-alike that does everything right and is up with some of the top GSM blends coming out of California today."

Easton Amador County Zinfandel 2014

Bill Easton calls this a "popular, but serious cru Beaujolais-styled/Rioja crianza-styled Zinfandel." We'll translate that to... "balanced, fruit-driven and simply delicious." Always a winner, and always priced right.

(8/1/2016) "An interesting vein of tasty herb flavor runs through this full-bodied, plump and fruity wine. The aroma has hints of dill and sage, and these mingle with black cherry and blueberry on the palate. A sleek texture and long finish complete the picture."

Renwood "Premier" Amador County Old Vines Zinfandel 2015

91 Our Score
92 Wine Enthusiast
(7/1/2018) "Editors' Choice - Smoky, charcoal aromas lead to rich, concentrated flavors of blueberry and dark chocolate in this full-bodied, well-structured wine. It has an intensity of black-fruit flavors and a density of fine-grained tannins that is rare for the variety and bodes well for improvement over time. Best after 2023."

Domaine de la Terre Rouge "Enimgma" Sierra Foothills White Rhone Blend 2011

This wine is flat-out special, feeling rich and premium from the first second. $25 at the winery was already a deal. Must-try for the few fans of Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc out there!

(8/2019) Bill Easton is a bit of an eccentric as it comes to wine, and we love him for it. The name of this "Enigma" says it all, as the fact that this 8 year old white Rhone blend is obtainable as a currant vintage is strange on paper. This vintage's blend is 44% Marsanne, 29% Viognier and 27% Roussane. We were blown away by the complexity, freshness and above all UNCTUOUSNESS. Considering the price, this is almost incredibly textured. Notes of baked apple, apricot, peach preserves, almond butter, macademia nut, white florals and a nice tense, dry mineral finish. This is exceptional fall-weight white, or anytime for those who like very full-bodied creamy whites.
