2013 Dominus Proprietary Red...$279.99
The 2013 Dominus is, to my way of thinking, one of the most profound wines Christian Moueix has yet made in his rather brilliant winemaking history, both in France and in Napa Valley. This wine, with very low yields of only 3,500 cases and a final blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, offers up notes of cedar wood, forest floor, loamy soil and oodles of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Very opaque purple in color, super-pure and intense, this wine has low acidity, but ripe, noticeable tannins.
Rated 100/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Director’s Great Movies
SONOMA COUNTY & SAN LUIS OBISPO
Cabernet Sauvignon
California’s 2014 harvest featured great fruit development for Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Sonoma gave us structure and ripe juicy fruit, while San Luis Obispo supplied floral notes and red fruit flavors.

This wine is highlighted by serious blackberry flavors and a forward tannin structure. Its aroma features warm cedar spice, blackberry pie, foraged wild berries, and toasted marshmallow. It finishes with flavors of creamy toffee and black hibiscus tea.

    What a fantastic value in Rose Champagne.  Tiny production!
    Joel Falmet Brut Rose Champagne...$49.99Order now button
    Made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay
    Joël makes a small amount of rosé, about 160 cases per year. Joël’s rosé is made by adding aproximately 10% still red wine (100% Pinot Noir) to the blend. 
    Joel Falmet is a small grower Champagne (RM) producer.  This area of Champagne produces richer and more full bodied wines than other parts of Champagne.  Many of the “Grand Marque” Champagnes generally use grapes from this region to add body and richness to their own wines.  Joel Falmet is one of the few growers that bottles his own Champagne in this region.

"2013 Ulysses is absolutely mind-boggling..."- Robert Parker
2013 Ulysses Napa Valley Red....$179.99
The 2013 Ulysses is absolutely mind-boggling, as so many wines from this vintage are. Gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, along with the telltale cassis and floral notes, jump from the glass. Again, this is Pauillac-like, with some cedar wood and subtle barrique smells. Again produced nearly all from Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is full-bodied, powerful, rich and long, with slightly sweeter tannins than the 2012. Production in 2013 was 960 cases, and Moueix told me that the entire growing season averaged about two and half weeks ahead of schedule from bloom break to harvest. This is a prodigious effort and will certainly stand as the great Ulysses of the first trio to be released. I suspect it will be drinkable in 3-4 years and keep for 30 or more, given the Moueix track record.

Firestone Walker Bretta Rose

sold out online now


Firestone Walker Bretta Rose...$11.99 / 375ml
Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lies the fertile Santa Maria Valley. Its warm days and cool marine layer-fed evenings allow for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables to be grown in its rich soil. One of Santa Maria’s crown jewels is locally grown raspberries. We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries with one of our Barrelworks creations. Behold Bretta Rosé! A low-alcohol Berliner Weisse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 6 months, is the foundation for this gem. Add 1000 lbs. of fresh raspberries, allow a secondary wild fermentation for 4 more months and voila (!), we have a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, a rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean and refreshing finish.

Aromas bursting from the glass include coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, black currant and blueberry. Creamy and viscous on the palate, the flavor initially follows the nose.
