Bedrock NV North Coast Shebang Red Wine

55% Zinfandel blended with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Syrah, Barbera and a touch of whites for aromatics from old vine plantings (up to 100 years old) around Sonoma County, fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel and raised in a nice bit of French oak for a bold, bright-fruited, silky, and satisfying wine that is unbeatable at this price.

Birichino 2013 Central Coast Besson Vineyard Grenache

The grapes from this vineyard (named after George Besson Sr. and Jr. whose families have lived and tended this vineyard since the 1930s) is fermented with native yeasts, using 15% whole cluster (with the rest destemmed), and racked into neutral barrels, unfined and and unfiltered. This wine envelops the palate with black cherry skin and fruit flavors, and violet, freshly rained earth, and menthol undertones. Despite the lightness and brightness of this Grenache, all the flavors resonate with an understatedly profound intensity. Pair with roast turkey with cranberry sauce or mushroom and herbed stuffing!

Birichino 2014 Chalone Antle Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Antle Vineyard is perched at the edge of an extinct volcano, planted on granite and limestone soils at nearly 2,000' in the Chalone AVA. Several notable California winemakers have sourced fruit from this distinctive vineyard, including Enfield, Dirty & Rowdy, and the Scholium Project. Birichino's Pinot Noir from Antle Vineyard resonates with black cherry skin and tart black raspberry flavors with meaty, earthy, and herbal undertones, framed by firm and stern tannins.

Broadside 2016 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Broadside is a project of very talented winemaker Chris Brock. The Cabernet is fermented with wild yeasts and aged in barrels, 10% of which are new. The resultant wine is remarkably fresh and full bodied with an interesting spicy character and plenty of bright, tangy dark fruit.

Broc Cellars 2016 Alexander Valley Carbonic Carignan

This wine is sourced from the Oat Valley Vineyard in Alexander Valley, which contains 130+ year old vines! The decomposed sandy soil here makes this site phylloxera-proof as well. Planted sometime around 1890, this extraordinarily old vineyard includes, in addition to Carignan, plantings of Palomino, Zinfandel, and Alicante. Thus, this wine's cepage is 85% Carignan, 10% Alicante, 4% Zinfandel, and 1% Palomino. The grapes are then fermented using full carbonic maceration, which, when combined with the crazy concentration from the old vine fruit, makes this wine an exciting and atypical blend of incredibly concentrated depth and bright freshness. Charred meat and bone broth intermingle with pomegranate, strawberry, and bright cranberry flavors on the palate. The general intensity of its flavors is immense, it feels like drinking an entire historical period in one glass. Andrew Farquhar

Cooper Hill 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Cooper Mountain Vineyards started in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Today, the estate has more than 100 acres  dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking. This Pinot Noir is refreshing and ripe, with brambly raspberry and cherry fruit, baking spice, and earthy flavors.

This refreshing and bright Pinot Noir from star California winemaker Kenny Likitprakong is sourced predominantly from the Arroyo Seco AVA, in other words, Steinbeck country. Native yeast fermentation and spontaneous malo are followed by nine months on the lees with occasional batonnage in used French oak barrels. Bright red fruit and elegant texture make for a fine, refreshing wine that lingers pleasantly on the palate. Andrew Farquhar

Fossil & Fawn 2016 Willamette Valley Silvershot Vineyard Pinot Noir

Father and son Jim Fischer I and Jim Fischer II farm a single site, Silvershot Vineyards, and craft wine made with minimal intervention that are meant to express the maximum potential of their specific site. Jim Fischer I and his brother Bill planted Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris on a gentle south/southwest facing slope on Holmes Hill right at the exit of Holmes Gap, the furthest inland portion of Oregon's viticulturally important Van Duzer Corridor, a gap in the coastal mountains that allows cooling air to sweep through from the Pacific into the Willamette Valley. These wines are energetic and full of an awesome melange of tart cranberry fruit, violets, spice, and a quirky, saline, minerally energy that is as enticing when drunk alone as it is accepting of a wide array of dishes. A fantastic food wine, with more delicately enumerated fruit structure than many American Pinots. 142 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Ghostwriter 2013 Santa Cruz County Belle Farms Pinot Noir

Belle Farms Pinot Noir is a perennially stunning single vineyard bottling from Ghostwriter, from 1.5 acres at 500 feet elevation, planted in 1999 to Champagne clones, just outside of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA in the foothills of Mount Madonna. We recently learned from winemaker Kenny Likitprakong that Belle Farms was ripped out after the 2014 harvest and is currently planted with broccoli to enrich the soils before replanting (the vineyard had been struggling for years and ultimately failed). 2013 was a gorgeous vintage for these valiant vines, with aromas of dry earth, sweet cherry, birch bark, cardamom, and clove, which swirl onto the palate of crisp cranberry, rich cassis, black raspberry preserves, and spicy citrus oils, with a bold acidic core. This cuvée always needs some air, and flavors evolve on the second day open toward elegant, high-toned fruit with graceful florals and a fresh, salty, mineral layer. An aptly named vineyard! Please decant. Ariana Rolich

Harrington Mission 2017 Lodi Somers Vineyard

Bryan Harrington is an amazing winemaker who is interested in very obscure grapes from California. His Mission is a fantastic example of the variety. The classic russet color of the grape, the very light tannin and silky, extraordinarily soft mouthfeel are evident with this great example of California's oldest wine grape. Notes of cedar and plum, with just a whiff of tobacco, are welcome on the nose, slightly redolent of more powerfully tannic wines. This wine has darker fruit character but is very light in body and tannin. Perfect with intensely flavored barbecues. Andrew Farquhar

Inconnu 2017 Contra Costa County Lalalu Cab Franc

Laura Brennan Bissell, the winemaker behind Inconnu, makes wine based on her belief in the importance of "vins de soif," the French term meaning "wines of thirst," aka wines made for refreshing drinking. This immensely juicy Cabernet Franc, sourced from the secretly hip old-vine hinterland hinterland of Contra Costa County, is light and refreshing and best drunk chilled somewhere in shade or sunlight. The bright red fruit is accented by some of the denser, earthier, herbal tendencies in Cabernet Franc and is combined into a ravishing and elegant whole. Andrew Farquhar

Kelley Fox 2016 Dundee Hills Maresh Pinot Noir

There are a lot of outstanding Pinot Noirs produced in Oregon, and Kelley Fox's Maresh Vineyard bottling is one of the best. Planted in the Dundee Hill A.V.A. on reddish-brown, well-draining Jory soils, Maresh Vineyard is a sought-after, historic source for Pinot noir, one of the first planted in the region and home to a healthy polyculture that includes walnut, hazelnut, and fruit orchards, full of butterfies, birds, and bees. Kelley's blocks at Maresh, which she farms herself, contain own-rooted old vines planted in 1970. Kelley's wines offer mystery, wildness, and poise, a sort of natural beauty that you don't find often and is hard to pinpoint. Fields of flowers, silky wild strawberry fruit, and spicy raspberry, with fine, mineral earth, structure and tannins that grow with air, and lingering floral cherry notes. Fascinating now, but wise to cellar some for 10 years or more

Porter Creek 2015 Mendocino Carignane Old Vines Mendocino

This bright, ripe, juicy old-vine Carignane is sourced from biodynamically farmed grapes from Mendocino County. Rich, rustic, and juicy, this is a perfect barbecue wine, as it has the tannins to compete with chargrilled meats but clocking in at only 13.3% alcohol. Quite plush, this wine has the extraordinary fruit concntration unique to old-vine Carignane. Carignane is traditionally considered to be a lighter grape, but in fact, at about fifty years of age it begins to concentrate rapidly, and these super-old vines create wines of stunning depth. This quixotic wine works just as well with a slight chill in the sun as with hearty beef stews. Enjoy! Andrew Farquhar

Porter Creek 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Sourced from vineyards of clay over schist, shale, and granite bedrock, this fabulous Russian River Pinot was spontaneously fermented open-top (1/3 whole cluster), with a four day cold soak. Following this were 11 months in 25% new French barrique. A brawny, grippy Pinot Noir, in no ways heavy, this is a densely structured wine with tart pie cherry and cranberry notes. This wine has a way of reminding me of a lot of great California Pinot while also being structured somewhat differently, with a higher tone, more nervous energy, and a finish as tightly wound as a well-thrown football. While the fruit is definitely present it's wrapped around a surprisingly spare mineral core. Andrew Farquhar

Revik 2015 Howell Mountain Diogenes Ridge Vnyd Cabernet

Diogenes Ridge is located at 1800 feet above St. Helena in the Vaca mountains, this Cabernet is athletic and powerful, but without any excess weight. 15% whole cluster, spontaneous open-top ferment, eighteen days on the skins, and eighteen months in 50% new French oak barrels give this wine a force that is brought to an exquisite tension by its incredible acid backbone. Powerful, tannic, and clocking in under 14% ABV, this wine is extraordinarily balanced and capable of many years of cellaring. Traditional black currant is furled in chocolate shavings, hearth ash, peppercorn, cherry pit, samovar, and alabaster dust. Tiny production (two barrels) and alertness in the cellar have produced a fantastic expression of Napa Cabernet that bridges stylistic tendencies and generations. Andrew Farquhar

Rootdown 2017 Amador County Mourvedre Rose 1.5 L

Grapes grown in the Dry Bone Ranch vineyard at 2,700 feet in the Sierra Foothills. Like it's companion sangiovese rose, this is pressed using high pressure, to extract as much bold character as possible from the skins. Bold tart red fruit intermingles with some garrigue, a touch of candied rhubarb, and black pepper spice. Incredible concentration of fruit and tart, pithy, mineral character. Bottled with less than 10ppm sulfur. These magnums are incredible party bottles in addition to being exclusive on the east coast to Chambers Street Wines! Andrew Farquhar

A mellow peach color in the glass, this rose is a little softer than Rootdown's other offerings, but it exhibits much of the herbal, mineral, and tea-like  aspects associated with this grape. Trousseau planted in 2004 is gently foot-trod upon arrival in the winery, followed by spontaneous fermentation and cold-stabilization. Herbal, with fine green-apple fruit and a smudge of earthiness, this light and elegant rose is a great food wine. I had with hummus, tabouleh, foule, and baba ghanouj, with which it went famously.

Hand-harvested, the grapes are then squeezed with high pressure to get a lot of flavor from the skins. Juicy and ripe, with incredible acidity, an herbal freshness, and powerful blood orange character, this is a supercharged rose with such concentration it feels like drinking a glassful of rubies.

Ryme Cellars 2015 Fountaingrove District Peacelands Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a firm and beautifully structured Cabernet from the Peacelands Vineyard in the new Fountain Grove District AVA of Sonoma. Firm, with layers of spice, cedar, smoke, and cooking chocolate wafting over its subtle, hushed cassis core, this reminds me more of an old-school Cabernet from the Santa Cruz Mountains than something from Napa. This wine will age with grace, which is important, as the Peacelands Vineyard was tragically destroyed in the fires of 2017. Thus this particular expression of Sonoma Cabernet will now only be recorded in the bottle. Andrew Farquhar

Aaron Burr Appinette Grape-apple Cider 70% NY Apples 30% Grapes

Another fantastic cider from the Aaron Burr Cidery! The Appinette blends together NY apples and a local grape, Traminette (a genetic cross between Gewürztraminer and the French-American hybrid Joannes Seyve). Lively and complex with heady aromas of guava, pineapple, banana, and lemon curd. There is also a very pleasant vinous muskiness. On the palate, it is quite earthy and very dry with a gentle sparkle, making it almost more reminiscent of wine than cider. Salty minerals, delicate fruit, and a vigorous acidity balance it out and make it rather food friendly! Tim Gagnon

Yellow apple and white peach on the nose mix with classic ripe unoaked Napa chardonnay character. The palate is quite different, having a briny quality and increased depth from the pinot noir.

Cooled by air from the San Pablo Bay, this small viticultural area has a decidedly maritime climate. This wine, aged in handmade puncheons crafted by Stockinger (one of Austria's, and Europe's, finest artisanal cooperages), has incredible reserve, with a nose of lemon pith, hay, and woolen mittens that is a harbinger of the sturdy structure and  linear acidity to be found on the palate. 118 cases made.

Vibrant and fresh, this Chardonnay perfectly exemplifies the terroir and potential of Santa Barbara County. Jonas Mendoza

Folk Machine 2017 Central Coast Jeanne d'Arc

This 100% chenin blanc is sourced from Merritt Island in the Sacramento river delta, near Clarksburg. Natural fermentation occurred after six days on the skin, and continued for a month. Broad and inviting on the nose, this wine has fine citrus character that mixes with a broader, more textured elegance on the palate. Lemon curd and a delicate peach character intermix over light tannin from the extended skin contact, though it is softer and prettier than many more deeply hued orange wines. This wine will pair excellently with heavier seafood, like braised scallops, lobster, or monkfish, particularly if a cream sauce is involved. Light sulfur only at bottling. Andrew Farquhar

Fossil & Fawn 2017 Willamette Valley Silvershot Vineyard Pinot Gris

Named after the marine fossils found in the Oligocene marine sediment that makes up the soil of the vineyard and the baby deer hiding in tussocks in the oak savanna that surrounds the vineyard, Fossil & Fawn is a site-specific experiment that focuses on the dry-farmed Silvershot Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. They make this Pinot Gris exactly as if it were a red wine. About half the lot was destemmed and then foot-trod for two weeks during indigenous yeast fermentation. The other portion of the lot was set aside for full carbonic maceration. Bottled unfined and unfiltered the next spring, this wine is amazingly juicy on the nose, but the palate is funky, with herbal and leathery notes to complement the good muted red fruit. Nervy and energetic, this is a fantastic light red, deeper in hue than many skin-contact Pinot Gris wines I've tasted, yet still light and refreshing. Fantastic with mezze, grilled seafood, marcona almonds, or fried chicken. 131 cases porduced. Andrew Farquhar

Porter Creek 2016 Russian River Valley Chardonnay George's Hill

Sourced from the estate's George's Hill vineyard, named in honor of founder George Davis who purchased the land in 1977, this biodynamically farmed vineyard site produces some of the most exciting Chardonnay in the entire Russian River. This wine is big on texture and has great aromatic power, with notes of green apple, almond, and darker mineral, oily, almost saline notes. On the palate this wine has great, peppy acidity, though it is not quite light-bodied. A certain breadth comes through on the palate, with ripe peach character filling out the back end as it slips into a long, softly nuanced finish that cycles between cream, citrus, and hazelnut. Tastes great now, but will continue to improve in the cellar for at least ten years. Andrew Farquhar

Precedent 2014 Cienega Valley Wirz Vineyard Old Vine White Wine

Precedent is the label of Nathan Kandler, longtime winegrower at Thomas Fogarty in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a renowned destination for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Precedent illustrates Kandler's versatility and curiosity and has introduced us to some truly unique California vineyard sites. Wirz Vineyard is home to 60+ year-old dry farmed, head-trained Riesling on decomposed granite over limestone in the Gabilan mountains. We usually have an off-dry Riesling on the holiday table, but I'm happy to go in a drier direction in this case... Concentrated, gleaming apricot, citrus rind, and tropical fruit is laced with gritty, long minerality and backed by supple texture and acidic tension. Terrific with herbed root vegetables and citrus glazed poultry or fish and anything peppery or spicy. Ariana Rolich

Made with fruit sourced from the Saphi Vineyard in Coombsville (Revik winemaker Phil Holbrook's dry-farmed home vineyard), this wine was aged in both stainless steel and neutral oak, with 8 months on the lees. Unfined and unfiltered, and fermented with native yeast, this wine has great depth and a long linear texture, with subtle, muted citrus fruit wrapped in a chrysalis of finely spun woolen notes. Peach fuzz and melon rind absorb into zippy acidity. The subtle degrees of shading are spectacular and the finish feels like forever. Two barrels produced. Andrew Farquhar

Like a riper Chablis, there are notes of zesty lemon, white nectarine, and just-ripe peach. On the palate, lemon juice, lemon pith, and saline flavors with bright acidity and a tight mineral core.A perfect introduction to Rhys' stunning Chardonnays. Jonas Mendoza

SITE 2015 Santa Barbara County Larner Vineyard Viognier

Sourced from the organically certified Larner vineyard at the southern end of Ballard Canyon, this is one of the most electrifying wines made from Viognier I have ever tasted. On one level this wine shows all the classic varietal character of Viognier: apricot, peach fuzz, and honeyed herbal notes. Yet these are mixed into a transcendent admixture with incredible structure, great acidity, and a distinct nervy saline character coming from the Larner vineyard's limestone bedrock, laid over with sand. Hints of chamomile, white peach, pine resin, and beeswax fill out this elegantly textured, structurally profound wine. Andrew Farquhar

Spencer, Elizabeth 2017 Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc

This bright, fresh, sunny sauvignon blanc is a classic Mendocino style, sourced from the Gibson and McFadden vineyards. Bright citrus fruit and pleasant herbal characteristics meld with spring grassland on the palate, reminiscent of a Sancerre but a touch softer and with more rounded fruit. A nice subtle floral character is interlaced throughout nose, palate, and finish. Andrew Farquhar

Thomas Fogarty 2011 Santa Cruz Mountains Portola Springs Chardonnay

For Nathan Kandler, winemaker at Thomas Fogarty, Portola Springs is the most extreme of their Santa Cruz Chardonnay vineyards, with its very steep slopes and cool marine air influence. The Chardonnay grapes ripen very slowly and yields are frustratingly low. Portola Springs has a characteristic lemon drop and verbena with flavors of lemon oil, sea spray, and dried thyme. Pair with roasted cauilflower or chicken. Jonas Mendoza

Thomas Fogarty 2012 Santa Cruz Mountains Portola Springs Chardonnay

Portola Springs Vineyard is a consistent standout in the excellent range of Thomas Fogarty Chardonnays. 2012 has riper, sunnier fruit tone than the austere 2011, without sacrificing any of Portola Springs' cool mineral core and impressive, driving acidity, owing to the low-yielding, late-ripening, nearly 40-year-old vines planted on basalt and shale. Complex and rich enough to handle poultry and pork dishes, with refreshing energy to compliment seafood and veggies. Ariana Rolich

Treasury Cider 2016 Burr Knot Bottle-Conditioned

This is an amazing, extraordinarily powerful and fundamentally expressive bottle-conditioned cider. Quite tannic, this cider reminds me of the tart and unsweetened rhubarb pies my grandmother used to make in Maine. The tannins are beautifully integrated and expressive and the finish is long and herbaceous. Drink now or hold up to five years. Hyslop Crab, Granny Smith, Jonamac, Golden Delicious, and Pink Lady go into this cider. Only 60 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Treasury Cider 2016 Centennial Still Cider

This still cider is very dry and minerally, with a vinous quality that lends it to pairing with food. Slightly tart, this is perfect with summer squash, smoked trout, or corn on the cob. A blend of Newtown Pippin, Roxbury Russet (America's oldest apple cultivar, dating from back in the days of the Massachusetts Bay Colony), Esopus Spitzenburg, and Winesap. Aged for ten months on the lees before bottling, giving it more depth. 90 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar

Treasury Cider 2016 Onda Bottle-Conditioned

This is a wilder, more unhinged tart cider. Bottle-conditioned and also quite tannic, this is a funky and minerally cider with quite a bite. Made using Goldrush and a mix of old-growth dessert apples planted in the 60s. This is for lovers of sour beer! Only 40 cases produced. Andrew Farquhar
