2014 Anthill Farms Campbell Ranch Vineyard

Flavors of dark berry fruit, fynbos, violet, and dark stony minerality. Powerful yet velvety, and so delicious!
2015 Domaine De Villaine Bouzeron
Upon being gathered and sorted by hand, the grapes go immediately into a pneumatic press. Pressing is slow and gentle in order to obtain clear, non-astringent juice.The musts ferment in tanks at controlled temperatures in order to preserve each wine’s freshness and specific aromatic traits.
A lively and fruity wine, but it also has a finesse and roundness that spring from the essential nature of the terroir.

2016 Benedicte et Stéphane Tissot, Arbois DD
Poulsard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir
One of the kind.. We are so excited to carry some of Benedicte and Stéphane Tissot wines from unknown Jura Region.
Where Is Jura??
The Jura is an old chain of mountains drawing a natural border between France and Switzerland. Even though is just 80 miles away east of the Côte de Beaune and West of the Valais, this region existed for centuries in splendid isolation. Unburdened by the ways of its neighbors, they protected their indigenous grapes and distinct vinification methods regarded as stubborn by the oenological conformists. If you are one of us who like to escape from the shallowness and tedium of the wine fashion, then Jura is for you.
Stéphane Tissot’s fascinating personality between candid kindness and an incredible obstinacy lead him to become the most highly regarded of the region’s leaders. Certified organic since 1999 and biodynamic since 2004, Stéphane’s Estate is an example of natural practices. The 30 wines produced at the estate are showcasing all the “patchwork” of the Terroir that Jura can offered, displaying an incredible “life” and a signature that you find nowhere else.
This wine will please any Burgundy and Cru Beaujolais lovers. It has an organic nose that mixes blood oranges and sour cherries. The palate is sharp and a little edgy.
I’ll suggest you grab some before it runs out.. ( We received only few cases)
2015 Benedicte et Stéphane Tissot, Arbois "Singulier"
Another great wine from Domaine Tissot: 100% Trousseau from 5 vineyards: les Rosières, Béranger, En Muzard, les Corvées sous Curon et les Bruyères
The color is pale rose with a slight bluish magenta cast; aromas of dried cherries and red currants are permeated by notes of cloves, cinnamon and rose petals, segueing in the mouth to those spicy cherries and red currants but encompassing hints of pale plums and tart mulberries. This is dry, lovely, graceful, charming, almost ephemeral, yet it’s enlivened by chiming acidity, pliant tannins and a vibrant mineral element that provide the necessary structure to be taken seriously.
2013 Paolo Scavino, "Carobric"
A one-of-a-kind Barolo from the famous Paolo Scavino winery. With classic Barolo notes of roses, violets and blue fruits, this powerful beauty is perfect for long term cellaring.
