Arnot-Roberts 4-23-24

On Sale Now
 
At the forefront of the “New California” are small, pioneering producers such as Arnot-Roberts. Started by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts in 2001, they’ve quickly established themselves as some of the best producers of restrained and elegant small-parcel wines. In 2013 the San Francisco Chronicle named them “Winemakers of the Year” in recognition of the quality and consistency of the wines they’re producing, and they’ve racked up professional accolades ever since.
 
The wines show spunk and backbone, nothing soft and fruity. The acidity and tannin evoke the great wines of France over their plusher peers. These are serious wines that are built to age—which is how they’ve developed such a following. Given a couple years in the cellar, these blossom into wines that rival the best in the world.

On Sale Now
 
We feel fortune to offer such an incredible selection of top Austrian wines. It’s both a blessing and a curse.
 
The blessing is obvious: these are some of the greatest wines made anywhere in the world. They include such luminaries as FX Pichler, Gobelsburg, and Nikolaihof. Somms and Austrian wine fans get EXCITED when they see our selections. That joy is what we live for.
 
The curse side…well, let’s just say that the wines don’t always get the attention they deserve. If these wines came from France, those biodynamic, single-vineyard, Grand Cru, food-friendly, and ridiculously underpriced gems from thousand-year-old wineries would they be three times as expensive. These are the source of the best value high end whites in the world.

Kruger-Rumpf is a top quality estate in the Nahe which lies between the Mosel and the Rhine rivers—sort of a halfway point between both, geographically and stylistically.  What I think I love most about this winery is the value that their bottlings offer in terms of price to quality ratio. It’s a shame really that I’m rejoicing that a winery doesn’t charge higher prices for their wines when they absolutely deserve to, but the benefit can’t be ignored.

Vietti.
 
In the minds of wine lovers, Vietti is what they think of when they think of Barolo. Proclaimed a Historical Brand of National Interest by Italy’s Minister of Economic Development, Vietti represents Italian wine itself to its core: expressive, dramatic, and graceful with incredible depth as it comes of age.
 
2018 was the very first year that Vietti produced their Cerequio bottling and this wine came out of the gates swinging. Due to its finesse, elegant perfume, and near immortality in the bottle Cerequio, a Cru split between Barolo and La Morra, is considered by many to be one of Barolo’s premium terroirs and its wines one of the most classical representations of the region as a whole.

Go bold.

 
In a few wine regions throughout the world, there exists one individual or family that defines the style of the region. When it comes to Valpolicella, the Dal Forno family does just that, crafting deeply concentrated expressions for over thirty years.
 
Established in 1983 by Romano Dal Forno, the estate vaulted to the heights of perfection in the Venato. The family employs traditional winemaking techniques, such as extended drying of the grapes before pressing, to craft their serious and seriously concentrated wines.
 
Vines hail from the foothills at around 1,000 feet above sea level. Here, the family’s 65 acres are planted to indigenous varieties such as Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella, grown and pruned according to ancient traditions.
