2016 Cole Ranch Riesling
Winery: Leo Steen Wines
From Martin: "This is the second wine we have released from sommelier turned winemaker Leo Hansen. This Riesling bottling is essentially dry, with just a kiss of sweeness to balance out the intense acidity. The palate is full of mouth-watering flavors of key lime, green melon, and lemon verbena. Try this wine over the holidays with a pork loin with roasted apples or simply boiled Dungeness Crab."
2016 Sierra Foothills Merlot
Winery: Chacewater Wine Company
From Martin: "It's been exactly two years since our last Merlot release and we feel long overdue for enjoying a great bottle from this sometimes misunderstood grape. Our current Merlot offering is approachable in price point while still exhibiting the soft structure and rich red fruit character that makes Merlot so easy to enjoy. The notes of purple plum and star anise are sure to warm you up on any chilly December night."
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."
