1. 2016 Broadside Chardonnay “Wild Ferment” (Central Coast, California) – Here’s a seriously captivating and delicious Chardonnay from Brian and Stephy Terrizzi of Broadside Wines. Whole cluster pressed and fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, it is aged on the lees in stainless steel and a bit of neutral oak. The resulting wine offers up notes of pear, nectarine, fennel and smoky, leesy nuances. Silky and open knit, with wonderful balance, it is one of the best domestic Chardonnay values out there.
2. 2014 Limerick Lane Syrah/Grenache (Russian River Valley, California) – It’s official — Limerick Lane, under the leadership of Jake Bilbro, has established itself as one of California’s top producers. And their 67% Syrah, 33% Grenache blend has really blossomed with time in the bottle. Just 580 cases were produced, and it tastes like a top-flight red from the Roussillon. Gorgeous notes of dark berries, olive tapenade, and Mediterranean herbs permeate this full-bodied, heady red.
3. 2015 Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Cruz Mountains, California) – Domaine Eden is the “second label” from legendary producer Mount Eden, and this Cabernet has garnered a cult following at Table Wine. For good reason too! The wine actually includes all 5 Bordeaux varieties, and it exudes tons of class and sophistication. With notes of briary currant, sage, mint, and integrated oak, it’s reminiscent of Left Bank Bordeaux with more supple and lush fruit.
