Nielson Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2016

88 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
89 Jeb Dunnuck
(10/15/2018) "The value-priced 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County sports a medium ruby color as well as a pretty perfume of ripe red cherries, underbrush and spice. It's medium-bodied, has remarkable typicity at this price point, is elegant, and nicely balanced. It's a steal and will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming 2-4 years."

94 James Suckling
90 Wine Enthusiast
(3/1/2019) "Forest floor, mature plum, menthol and exotic spice aromas lift out of the glass. On the smooth, savory palate, fine-grained tannins wrap around dried cherry, prune and star anise. Drink through 2021."

Kobal Stajerska Sauvignon Blanc 2018

90 Our Score
(8/2019) The extended skin contact and lees contact that this unique Slovenian Sauvignon Blanc sees over its fermentation and elevage provides considerable texture and mouthfeel. Despite this intensity, rapier-like acidity keeps the profile focused and cut, even at 14% alcohol! An intensely pungent, herbal nose highlights a profile that includes the high-wire-act electric acidity of lean citrus and lime leaf colliding with notes of ripe passion fruit and papaya. Chiseled, and with a very long finish, this is ready to tame a whole red snapper!

Domaine des Herbauges "Clos de la Fine" Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu Sur Lie 2018

90 Our Score
(8/2019) This clean-as-a-whistle Loire Valley white comes from 40 year old vines in the 3.5 hectare Clos de la Fine vineyard. Raised in stainless steel, it is fresh as could be, with lemon/lime and a touch of apple in both the nose and palate. The Sur Lie aging provides a gripping texture that lasts for minutes. A perfect apertif for a hot summer night.

Tinto Rey Dunnigan Hills Verdejo 2017

88+ Our Score
(8/2019) This charming dry white hails from Dunnigan Hills, a Yolo County appellation located just northwest of Sacramento. Citrusy, salty, crisp and clean, this California Verdejo is remarkably honest to the varietal. Fresh and more concentrated than the first sip suggests, this lively, yummy effort is one of the smarter American whites we've had in some time. An excellent value.

Raats "Original" Unwooded Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2018

Raats is back!
90 Vinous, Neal Martin
(8/2018) "The 2018 Original Chenin Blanc comes from lower-sited vineyards, mainly on sandstone soils, and saw no wood contact. It offers straightforward, quite fragrant white flower and nectarine scents on the well-defined nose. The palate is well balanced with a pleasing citrus attack on the entry, followed by orange peel, a touch of peach skin and hints of elderflower toward the long, fresh finish. Very fine and a great value."

Chateau Guiot Costieres de Nimes Rose 2018

88 Wine Enthusiast
88+ Our Score
(8/2019) Identical twin brothers Numa and Alexis Cornut are vignerons in Costieres de Nimes, a Southern Rhone paradise for smart shoppers. Based on Grenache, this is a solid pink wine that yields flavors of deep red fruits, black pepper and fresh herbs. Tasty, tangy and perfect for late summer parties!
