2018 Nebbiolo close up
$44.00 USD

2018 Nebbiolo North Block

$44.00 USD

The 2018 vintage is what we refer to as the "Peter Pan" vintage, producing wines that never wanted to grow up. Right now they showcase layers of fruit.

Aroma: Bright red fruit with a lifted floral bouquet of rose petals, fresh crushed strawberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit, and spearmint.

Body: A juicy red fruit core: strawberry & raspberry fruit, with good acidity. Smooth with integrated tannins.

Food Pairing: Charcuterie is always a good choice with Nebbiolo. The 2018 will also accompany roasted chicken, shish kabobs, bbq skewered vegetables, or grilled salmon with a maple syrup or honey glaze.

Awards: Gold Medal 2023 Sommelier Choice Awards

Background: Sourced from vines planted in the early 1980's at Lucas & Lewellyn's Rancho Don Miguel in Los Alamos.

2017 Sangiovese SBC
$41.00 USD

2017 Sangiovese Santa Barbara County

$41.00 USD

Broad shouldered, smooth, lifted bright red fruits, with an earthy core. From a vintage that is built to age, the 2017 has lots of upfront bold fruit and baking spice to enjoy now. The earthiness will show more as the wine ages. Both elegant & powerful.

2014 PN CP label close up
$51.00 USD

2014 Pinot Noir Coteau Palmer

$51.00 USD

Located in the northern Los Alamos Valley, Premier Vineyard is at the intersection of 101 North and Palmer Road. "Coteau Palmer" or "Palmer Hillside" is my own fanciful description of this block, tucked back in a canyon, on a steep sandy hill.

Planted to Swiss Clone 2A and Dijon Clone 115, the vines are now over 20 years old. The block faces southwest, and enjoys fantastic exposure all day while being sheltered by the surrounding hills. Yields barely reach 2 tons per acre, and the clusters and berries are very small.

Characteristics of the vintage:

The 2014 vintage wines showed the serious drought was in effect with a high ratio of skins to juice. These wines have a silky feel and an enormous, dense mid palate that will carry them for many years ahead.  Whole cluster fermentation adds multi dimensional aromatics and extra tannin to frame the big ball of fruit. The 2014 seems to be filled with energy & holding on tight ready to develop & unwind.

Vineyard: 100% Premier Vineyard Los Alamos  

Alcohol: 13.2%

Wine Enthusiast 90pts - " Dried cherry, rusty earth, tangy eucalyptus and an intriguing mushroom quality show on the nose of this bottling by Benjamin Silver. The palate is consumed by earthy tones of dried mint and muddy clay while also showing black-cherry and mulberry flavors. This is a very unique bottling unlike many others in the region." M.K.
The Tasting Panel 90pts - "Silky, bright, and juicy with notes of spice and cherry; balanced and generous with depth. ADBlue"

2016 Nebbiolo SB Label close up
$44.00 USD

2016 Nebbiolo South Block

$44.00 USD

The 2016 Nebbiolo was picked from a different block than all the other vintages. The block is interplanted with Pinot Noir rows to help reduce vigor in the nebbiolo.

The South Block is lighter, bright & floral, with good acidity and integrated tannin.  

Aroma:  Red licorice spice, tar, nutmeg, menthol, & a lifted sweetness. Almost freshly cut sawdust.

Body: Silky smooth red fruits with their bright acidity. It’s more elegant and pretty than broadly structured., hence more feminine like a Barbaresco. Great balance & easy drinking with many foods, especially your favorite charcuterie platter. Will age very well & get more & more silky smooth.    

Food Pairing: Charcuterie is always a good choice with Nebbiolo. The 2016 will also pair with Sushi, or thinly sliced skirt steak, grilled.  

Background: Sourced from vines planted in the early 1980's at Lucas & Lewellyn's Rancho Don Miguel in Los Alamos.
