Region

California produces 90 percent of the wine coming out of the United States. The major wine producing regions include four large AVA’s: North Coast, Central Coast, South Coast, and Sierra Foothills. Within those are smaller regions such as Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Santa Barbara, Monterey County, Carneros, Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande, Paso Robles, Santa Maria Valley, Livermore, Lodi and so on. From the formidable forests of Mendocino to the sun-soaked hills of Temecula, California offers a diverse climate and geography that allows grapes of all kinds to thrive. Being near the coast is optimal when it comes to producing wine. Rolling fog and cool sea breezes mitigate the warm temperatures creating a diurnal swing of warm days to cool nights. With a surplus of sunshine, California wine makers need not to worry about the ripeness of their grapes. The mixture of ripeness and sunlight give California wine their natural plumpness and extroverted fruit, creating an ideal recipe for Cabernet Sauvignon, which happens to be among the leaders of wine coming out of California. Closely following Cabernet Sauvignon, California produces Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, even Rhone and Italian varieties. The rumors surrounding Spanish varieties to be the next big thing to come out of California are not far-fetched. California’s extensive territory and plethora of microclimates allure some of the most experimental and innovative wine makers in the world. California, more specifically Napa Valley truly made a name for itself with the “underdog of the century” victory over France in the 1976 Judgment of Paris wine competition.

  • Landmark 2014 Overlook Pinot Noir
    Landmark uses the most time and labor-intensive techniques to produce our wines. Grapes are aged in French oak barrels, where naturally occurring wild yeasts ferment the juice.

Stach’s winemaking approach combines traditional techniques with a “less is more” philosophy. Believing that great wine begins in the vineyard, he intervenes only to ensure consistency and quality, relying more on the fruit’s intense flavors and distinct vineyard characteristics.

  • Conundrum 2014 California Red Wine (Caymus)
    The Wagner family continue the tradition of bending the rules with Conundrum Red. Serious yet down-to-earth, this wine knows no boundaries. Created from dark red varietals including Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, this wine offers layers of rich flavor that slowly trail off. Behold and serve slightly chilled. Tasting Notes: Almost floral, with tones of lavender, dried berries, baking chocolate, bacon bits. Aromas are rich, velvety and wonderfully appealing. Silky round entry with acid to balance and high fruit concentration. The nose leaves no doubt about the seriousness of this wine. The palate is fruit driven both before and after the high tannin middle core. The finish is long, not drying of tannin, and beckons a second sip.

  • Robert Craig 'Affinity' Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
    93+ points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, December 31, 2015 “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity has an inky purple color that is much more saturated than its two predecessors. This is a richer style of wine with much greater density, power and intensity. Opaque to the rim with more tannin, extract and muscle …” 94 points James Suckling, January 2016 “The blueberry and blackberry aromas are prevailing here with a spearmint and fresh herb undertone. Full body, chewy tannins and slightly austere now, but will be even more flavorful and beautiful in a year or two.”

  • Frog's Leap Zinfandel 2014 Napa Valley
    94 Points Wine & Spirits - "John Williams is on a roll, following his exceptional 2013 Zinfandel with an equally delicious 2014. He dry-farms his 40-year-old vines, harvesting them at the same time as his Petite Sirah so he can co-ferment the fruit. That brings the tannins together in a refreshing, gentle structure that lifts the fruit flavors, presenting them as perfectly ripe forest berries. The tannins feel plus, even as they carry a note of black-peppercorn spice and manzanita. This is a beautiful Napa Valley red that happens to speak with an accent of Zin."
