J Wilkes Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley

This exemplifies the ever-evolving style of Central Coast Chardonnay. A deft balance of vibrant white fruit with decadent hazelnut creaminess. Apricot, cardamom, sea breeze, and pineapple.

Wine Rating: 91 Points (Keith Wallace)

M Chapoutier Belleruche Cotes du Rhone Rose

Strawberry, cherry, and melon: the trinity of slurpable rosés everywhere. Like most Chapoutier wines, this bottling is more dynamic than most, with fresh spice and lavender notes.

Wine Rating: 90 Points (Keith Wallace)

Annick Bachelet Morgon Les Charmes

Gamay from one of the top Cru villages in Beaujolais. Supple dark fruit and crisp cherry over mineral and rosemary. The fresh acidity gives this wine buoyancy and is pitch-perfect for grilling on the deck.

Wine Rating: 90 Points (Keith Wallace)

Domaine de Longue Toque Gigondas

This is a lush bottling with well-structured tannin and a ripe, full-bodied texture. Grenache dominates here, with some Syrah and a tiny amount of Mourvedre. Flavors of crushed slate and flowers, spice, and cherries.

Wine Rating: 93 Points (Keith Wallace)

Frog’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Estate Grown

Rising from the ashes, Frog’s Leap has regained its crown as a top-tier Napa producer. Even in a poor vintage, this wine is glorious. Classic cab flavors with an elevated framework. Sourced from the Rutherford bench.

Wine Rating: 96 Points (Keith Wallace)
