Take the Guesswork Out of Choosing Wine. Two New West Coast Selections Each Month.TRY THIS MONTH'S WINES
2018 Potter Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Winemaker: Maz Naba of Augur Wine Co.
From Martin: "We are thrilled to release this unique wine from award-winning wine professional Maz Naba. When he's not overseeing operations at one of San Francisco's hottest Michelin-starred restaurants, he's crafting a small amount of wine from sustainably farmed North Coast vineyards. This Sauvignon Blanc spent three days soaking on the grape skins prior to fermentation. Known as 'skin-contact' wine, look for this to have notes of macadamia nut and beeswax in addition to citrus tones."
2017 San Benito County Grenache
Ian Brand of I. Brand & Family Wines
From Martin: "It is truly an honor to offer a wine crafted by the San Francisco Chronicle's 2018 Winemaker of the Year. It's been awhile since we checked out a wine based entirely on Grenache and this shows wine shows what this underrated grape is capable of producing. Highly aromatic, notes of strawberry, white pepper, and rose petal leap from the glass. The unique limestone soils of San Benito County give the wine a long, mineral-driven finish."
2018 Lodi Rosé of Syrah
Winery: Brick & Mortar Wines
From Martin: "We couldn’t be more excited to release our first rosé from the 2018 vintage! Crafted by one of our favorite winemakers, this bottling comes from a windswept vineyard next to the Micke Grove Zoo in Lodi. Bone-dry, the wine shows lots of raspberry and watermelon notes as well as a distinct white pepper tone."
