2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Winery: Campana Ranch
From Martin:
"While 'buttery' Chardonnay is often thought of as an American tradition, the style's roots are in France. Beurre, the French word for butter and noisettes, or hazelnuts, are terms often used to describe the Chardonnay-based wines of Burgundy. This bottling, from 2014, shows tropical fruit notes typical of the sunny Russian River Valley as well as deep nutty notes due to the additional time in bottle."

2017 Mendocino County Petite Sirah

Winery: Sans Wine Company
From Martin: "Sans, the French word for 'without,' emphasizes the pure nature of all of the wines Gina and Jake craft. No pesticides are used in the vineyards, and no additives make their way into the wines, which are then canned with almost no sulfur. Since 2015, Sans has been at the forefront of the trend towards high-end wines ending up in cans rather than bottles. Featured in publications such as Cosmopolitan, the Washington Post, and Decanter Magazine, Sans wines are consistently noted for being delicious, in addition to being environmentally responsible. We feel lucky that we were able to obtain a small quantity of this Petite Sirah. A slightly lighter wine than our previous Petite Sirah release nearly two years ago, this shows notes of purple plum, black raspberry, and cracked white pepper."

2016 Cool Gray Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Winemaker: Chris Pittenger of Gros Ventre Cellars
From Martin: "You may remember Chris from the amazing Chenin Blanc blend he shared with us as part of our July release. In a short period of time, he has gained national acclaim for the exciting Rhone-style wines that he crafts at Skinner Vineyards, as well as for the cool-climate Pinots he produces with his wife Sarah for their Gros Ventre label. Cool Gray features fruit from some of Chris’s favorite vineyards. Once it reached his cellar, his intervention was minimal, allowing for this California produce to carve its own path."
