May 2024

The Cellar Shot
  • Elio Altare Langhe Rosso ‘Larigi’ 2020, Piedmont, Italy - 100 % Barbera. Super ripe, dark cherry, red plum, mocha, spice, new, leather, and lavender. Well balanced and great depth. Decant and enjoy. Only 3 barrels were produced!
  • Domaine de La Taille aux Loups Pet-Nat ‘Triple Zéro’ NV, Loire, France - From certified organic 60-80 year old vines, this 100% Chenin Blanc sparkling wine is bone dry. The 000’s mean zero dosage, tirage, or added sugar!
The Californian
  • Broc Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2022, Carmel Valley - The Massa vineyard sits at 1500 feet on loamy soils. This is a bright fruit forward Cabernet with notes of blackberry, dark currant, and leather.
  • Cruse Wine Co. St. Laurent Pet-Nat 2021, Carneros - From Ricci vineyard, this sparkler was gently pressed into stainless steel tanks. Intensely effervescent, it is an easily quaffable wine with its crystalline simplicity. Don’t let this porch pounder fool you. It’s the real deal!
  • County Line Zinfandel 2020, Russian River Valley - A companion label to Radio-Coteau, this wine is approachable now. Vibrant, with scents of nutmeg-spiced blackberry pie and sun-warmed strawberry, elevated by floral earl grey tea. An ideal pizza pairing!
The Trust Fall
  • Iliana Malihin Liatiko Rosé 2022, Rethymno, Crete - From a young and talented winemaker this a low intervention rosé. Mild tannins with fruit reminiscent of cherry and plums. The sweetness of the fruit is balanced by grapefruit at the finish.
  • Broc Cellars Sparkling Valdiguié 2023, Mendocino - From Ricetti vineyard, this sparkler got a gentle footstomp and then a direct press into stainless steel tanks. Natural fermentation from certified organic vines. Notes of blackberries, strawberries, and candied citrus peels. 
  • Celler Pardas ‘Sus Scrofa’ Summol 2022, Catalonia, Spain - Sus Scrofa is Latin for Wild Boar. This natural wine has gripping acidity with black cherry notes and a hint of smoke. A consistent crowd pleaser.
The Pop & Pour
  • Tatomer ‘Hinter der Mauer’ White Blend 2022, Central Coast - This blend of 80% Grüner Veltliner and 20% Riesling is a conversation starter. Perfect for all seasons.
  • M. Bonnamy Crémant Brut Rosé NV, Loire, France - 100% Cabernet Franc. Juicy and Dry. 
  • Portalupi ‘Lupi’ Red Blend NV, California - Round, rich, and fruit forward. This is a basket of varieties primarily Tempranillo, Malbec, and Petite Sirah. Chuggable!
