Below, you’ll find a list of what’s “on tap” at the moment. A glass is 5 ounces of wine.
1. 2013 Gini Soave Classico (Veneto, Italy)
Gini is one of the top producers of 100% Garganega-driven Soave, and their 2013 is one of the top Soave Classicos of the vintage. Dry, golden hued, and medium bodied, it dances across the palate with golden apple, pear, lemon, and floral notes.
2. 2013 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc (Russian River Valley, California)
Merry Edwards makes the best Sauvignon Blanc in California. It’s just that simple! Rich, creamy, exotic, and flowing with white peach, tropical fruits, flowers, and brown spices, this is otherworldly Sauvignon Blanc.

3. 2009 Bratcher Chardonnay “Mary Ellis Sierra Madre Vineyard” (Santa Maria Valley, California)
Chris Bratcher likes to age his high acid Chardonnays for a bit before he releases them, so don’t think this is over the hill. Far from it, this one is styled a bit like Chablis with bright citrus and apple notes combined with wet stone minerality and a touch of oak.
4. 2013 Anthill Farms Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast, California)
Anthony Filiberti is quickly rising the ranks as one of California’s top Pinot Noir makers. Under his own Anthill Farms label, he’s sourcing fruit from top Sonoma Coast sites to assemble a wine that is pretty with generous red fruit, exotic floral notes, and a long, long finish.
5. 2009 Smith Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon “Spring Mountain Estate” (Napa Valley, California)
This tiny, under the radar Napa Valley Cab specialist, has produced an epic wine in the 2009 vintage. Powerful blackberry, black cherry, and cassis combine with a minerally, earthy undercurrent to yield a dense and structured wine that is drinking beautifully now. 94 points Wine Enthusiast
6. 2012 Brochelle Syrah (Paso Robles, California)
Red wines don’t get much sexier than this one! Many of you have tried the Brochelle Zinfandel and loved it, but this is one of the estate’s smallest production wines at just under 200 cases. Super rich, creamy, and flowing with crème de cassis, raspberry liqueur, chocolate and spice, it’s a total hedonistic delight!
