Reserve Champagne

Champagne Jacquart Brut Mosaique

$103

A blend where Chardonnay is the dominant grape variety, giving Brut Mosaïque its freshness and delicate aromas. Pinot Noir adds structure and Pinot Meunier brings fruit. The grapes are sourced from exceptional terroirs, including the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Aromas of fresh pear, fig and almond, with hints of orange flower. A light swirl of the glass brings out richer notes of honey and freshly baked bread

Champagne Drappier Carte d'Or

$144

With a very high proportion of Pinot Noir one is savouring what is nearly a Blanc de Noirs. A Champagne of great aromatic richness. The taste begins with stone fruits such as white vineyard peaches. A spicy note emerges in a powerful and complex mouthfeel. A vinous Champagne of grand complexity, with a characteristic touch of quince jelly.

Davis Family Vineyards, Sparkling Rose de Noir

$117

This Rosé de Noir is crafted from 100% Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir. After a long relationship working with the Dutton family, Guy Davis was able to secure a block of Pinot Noir that comes from an exceptionally cool spot on this already cool vineyard site.
Reserve Chardonnay

Drouhin Vaudon, Chablis

$74

A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Its color is pale gold with greenish hues. Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well. On the palate, dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste

Drouhin, Montagny

$86

On the nose, aromas of golden apple, almond and fern, with a faint lemony note. There is a clear-cut and lively impression when first tasting the wine, followed by a feeling of roundness. Long aftertaste, with appetizing flavors of "compote" (stewed fruit)"

Martinelli, Chardonnay, Bella Vigna, Sonoma

$91

The Bella Vigna Chardonnay is expressive on the nose with aromas of lemon, fresh earth, and white flowers. Bright on the palate with flavors of powdered sugar, candied citrus, and pineapple cake, this wine has an extremely balanced finish.
Other Reserve Whites

Railsback Racasse, Rosé, Santa Ynez Valley, California

$73

Made from a blend 40% Cinsault, 35% Grenache, and 25% Mourvèdre hand-picked from September 19th to 30th, our rosé is made “direct-to-press” like our favorite rosés in Bandol and Corsica. Fermentation is done only with native, wild yeasts, then aged in neutral French oak barrels for 6 months, naturally allowing a Malolactic, or secondary fermentation, for a creamier, fuller mouth-feel.

Lucien, Sancerre, France

$110

Pale, lemon green color, with pronounced citrus intensity. The nose is dominated by lychee, grapefruit and peach aromas ; rich and well-rounded in the mouth, showing a pleasant acidity length.

Presqu'ile, Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Maria Valley, California

$70

Comprised of 100% Presqu’ile Vineyard fruit, our 2021 rendition of this exuberant variety captures the herbasceuos, citrus fruit side that only cool climate Sauvignon Blanc can deliver. Utilizing six unique clones not widely planted in California, we find the complexity and aromatics in this clonal mixture to be utterly distinctive. Native yeast fermentation in a combination of concrete egg, stainless steel and neutral French oak, sur lie aging, and light lees stirring capture and amplify the many different facets of our site. The result: A wild, singular expression of Sauvignon Blanc.

L'Avion, Roussanne, Santa Barbara County

$115

Nuanced “red wine drinker’s white wine”, the great tradition of age worthy L’Avion Roussanne. The new release drinks especially fresh and has evolved wonderfully over the year we’ve held it in bottle. What was mineral and oak dominated a year ago has transformed into honey suckle and sweet beeswax.
Reserve Pinot Noir

Paul O'Brien, Pinot Noir, Umpqua Valley, Oregon

$86

This is given a bit of a twist, with one-quarter whole-cluster fermentation in concrete. The bright fruit shines through with sharp flavors of cranberry, raspberry and spicy plum. Vivid acidity adds lift and life, while the tannins bring in stem and green tea notes.

Martinelli, Pinot Noir, Bella Vigna, Sonoma Coast

$91

Our Bella Vigna Pinot Noir is curated from all of our estate vineyards in the Sonoma Coast appellation, we have created an approachable appellation blend that reflects the characteristics of our family's vineyards and is still true to our Martinelli style.

Andrew Rich, Marine Sediment Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley

$99

Spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cola and pungent flowers carry an energizing mineral topnote. Sappy and focused in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet red berry, cherry and spicecake flavors that show impressive depth and a bracing undercurrent of smoky minerality. Conveys a suave blend of power and vivacity and finishes very long and silky, with repeating florality and discreet, slow-building tannins.

Davis Family Vineyards, Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Sonoma

$137

The Davis Family Russian River Pinot uses the very best expressions of the Soul Patch, Starr Ridge and Dutton Ranch Pinot vineyards. Rich, balanced, and elegant, with beautiful red and dark fruit flavor, this blend is a perfect embodiment of all that the Russian River Valley has to offer in one deeply layered, complex wine.

Foxen, Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley

$82

This wine is a great introduction to Pinot Noir from the region as well as to the style of Foxen. It has a lighter ruby color, with a beautiful bouquet of spiced cherry and strawberry fruits interwoven with subtle forest floor and floral notes, it's medium-bodied and has a wonderfully pure, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish.
Reserve Red Blends

Robert Foley ‘The Griffin”

$130

This year’s blend (aged in French oak) is Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, & Petit Verdot. Aromas suggest ripe & youthfully bright red cherries & raspberries. The even mid-palate flavors of vanilla & butterscotch are framed with soft tannins that resolve in a gently gripping finish.

Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cuvée

$132

: A higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon has found its way into
this wine that is dark, deep, nuanced and supple. Sourced from young vines on the
Candlestick Ridge Vineyard, the 2019 HMC displays immediate Howell Mountain power
in the glass with lavender, thorny fruits and mineral at the fore.

Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain, Washington

$82

Earthy, cocoa, anise, cassis and a hint of dried herbs and cola. There is a refreshing hint of brine, menthol and floral perfume with a touch of vanilla. A soft entry of flavorful black fruits, cola, and licorice leads into a full mid-palate and very long supple finish.

Château Belles-Graves, Lalande de Pomerol 2017

$107

88% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc. Perfect balance between finesse and power, it is starting to open up nicely and offers a lovely gourmet freshness mixing small red and black fruits (raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant) on the attack, with a good length carried by the slightly woody notes of aging and very present tannins all in roundness.

Alvaro Palacios “Les Terrasses” Priorat

$135

Produced from a blend of Garnacha (55%) and Cariñena (45%), most of which is purchased from high quality fruit sources in various villages of Priorat, this is an excellent vintage of Les Terrases. Ripe and clean red fruit aromas are punctuated by notes of fennel pollen. More red fruits on the palate show a touch of licorice, lots of freshness and satisfying, subtle bitter notes towards the finish. This is Priorat!

Montepeloso A Quo, Costa Toscana, Italy

$74

This wonderfully-rounded blend contains 30% Montepulciano, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 10% Marselan, and 10% Alicante Bouschet from lime-rich, petrified clay and silex soils. This blend makes it complex yet balanced, lusciously dark with hints of balsamic, spice, and minerals.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Jax, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

$144

On the nose, this astonishing wine entices with generous aromas of blueberry and dark cherry, wild sage and lilacs. On the palate, its mouth-filling texture is perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a beautiful core of ripe fruit, followed by an incredibly persistent mineral and herbal finish.

Owen Roe, Cabernet Sauvignon, Yakima Valley

$137

Bright aromas of blackberry, tobacco, vanilla and brown sugar leads to a more savory palate of pomegranate, green pepper and oil cured olives. This Cabernet finishes with bright acidity and lingering tannins.

L'Ecole, Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla, Washington

$119

Our Heritage Collection Syrah offers sweet & savory complexity, with dark aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet, licorice, and crushed rock. Fruit forward and velvety on the palate, this varietally expressive Syrah presents silky tannins, plush mocha, and spiced cinnamon carried by notable freshness. It finishes tangy, flavorful, and persistent.

Peju, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

$103

This gorgeous wine greets the nose with fragrant aromas of dried Mission figs and hints of thyme. The flavors that follow include berry compote, red cherry, vanilla, light brown sugar and hints of cocoa. It’s a bright, juicy wine with many layers and soft supple tannins that lead to an elegant finish.

Stack House, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa

$102

This Cabernet Sauvignon Stack House is an elegant sleeper selection and a terrific value from Napa Valley. This blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot was aged in two-thirds new French oak for almost two years prior to bottling.
Reserve Red Other

De Trafford, Cabernet Franc 2014

$118

Attractive bright red fruit on the nose with typical spicy, dry leaf Cabernet Franc notes. A subtle dusty cedar from the barrel maturation adds complexity. Soft bright red fruit on palate with nice ripeness and elegant understated structure.

Peju Merlot, Napa Valley, California

$82

This complex and multi-layered wine greets the nose with hints of dark
fruit and anise. Bright flavors follow that include dried cherries, raspberries, white pepper and savory notes. The well-defined tannins add texture and length to the finish and will ensure a long life in the cellar.

San Fereolo, Dolcetto, Italy

$121

The 7-year wait from harvest to release reflects the importance of the “San Fereolo” to Nicoletta, who carefully tends the wine through its 3 years in large barrel before a 3-4 year hibernation in the bottle cellar.

Robert Foley, Charbono, Napa Valley

$123

Ripe aromas suggest dried cherries, cranberries, rose petals, and a suggestion of white pepper. A gentle mid-palate with flavors of black cherry candy is framed with soft tannin and bright acidity, which provides the long, lingering finish. Beautiful and age-worthy!

Giovanni Rosso, Barolo DOCG, Piemonte, Italy

$136

This wine brings Violet and roses, some nice fruits with cherry and raspberry hints.
Taste: quite easy to drink, with a fine structure; elegant tannins together with a good freshness.

Davis Family Zinfandel, Russian River

$98

This Zinfandel has the perfect character - juicy red raspberry flavors mixed with smoky plum and that great old vine spice. It is ripe but never over-ripe and full bodied and lush but not heavy and sappy. Simply delicious! (Organic)

Ardevol Anjoli, Priorat

$74

Steep slopes located around the town of Porrera. The Garnacha is from El Menescal – Mas d’en Pubill is 450 meters above sea level with a South exposure, while the Cabernet Sauvignon is from Coma d’en Romeu, 400m alt. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Garnacha.

La Torre, Rosso Di Montalcino DOC

$113

Aged for 18 months in large oak casks of French origin with about 10% of the ultimate cuvée being aged in small French barrels. The vines for this wine also face full-south. One thousand or so cases of the Rosso di Montalcino are produced annually.

Descombes, Georges 2018 Morgon

$70

The 2018 Morgon showed beautifully, tasted with Georges in early February, a bit fuller and deeper than the Regnié and Brouilly, showing ripe aromas of raspberry and strawberry with elegant strawbery liqueur, earth and minerals on the palate with terrific length. It's a gorgeous wine that should be served slightly chilled with just about anything.

Antoine Sunier 'Regnie' Gamay, Beaujolais AOC

$91

Bright red. Red berry preserves, lavender and musky herbs on the nose, along with hints of star anise and smoky minerals. Silky and animated on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that become spicier as the wine opens up. Shows sharp delineation and closes with bright, mineral-driven intensity, a hint of red currant and strong tenacity.

Domaine de la Solitude, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, France

$136

Solitude's Chateauneuf du Pape is 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, aged in a combination of barriques, demi-muids, foudres and concrete. Showing a fair bit of structure, with fine-grained tannins framing notes of black cherries, dark chocolate and various dried spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's a nicely balanced traditional example of Châteauneuf du Pape.

Roche-Audon Cesar, Grenache, Cotes du Rhone

$74

A noble grape from the South of the Rhône Valley, Grenache is honored in Cuvée César. The best parcels of 80-100 year old vines are harvested by hand, vinified and aged in vats for 18 months. The biodynamic work according to the lunar calendar allows the full expression of the terroir and the fruit in this cuvée.

Davis Family Vineyards, Throne, Russian River Valley, Sonoma

$113

A beautiful blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, Throne is a Rhone style blend meant to highlight the aromatic character in all three varietals. Aged in Puncheons, oak barrels twice the size of a normal barrel, which give less oak to the palate, highlighting the dusty cherry aroma that will open up to a red raspberry with delicious white pepper.

Stolpman, Estate Syrah, Ballard Canyon, Ca

$86

The wine’s richness and liveliness showcases Ballard Canyon’s cold nights and the short period of daytime warmth in between Pacific fog and cool wind. Stolpman’s Limestone subsoil elevates the bright natural acidity and Ruben Solorzano’s refusal to give the vines irrigation during much of the always-dry growing season lends terrific concentration.

L'Ecole Syrah, Columbia Valley, Wa

$73

The Heritage Collection Syrah offers sweet & savory complexity, with dark aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet, licorice, and crushed rock. Fruit forward and velvety on the palate, this expressive Syrah presents silky tannins, plush mocha, and spiced cinnamon carried by notable freshness. It finishes tangy, flavorful, and persistent.

Captain’s List

Defined: Exceptional wines that are often wines that cannot be replaced and are offered only while supplies last…  and that’s not long!  In order to share the best wine possible with all of our guests, these wines are offered at 1/2 off (or darn close to it!) every day so that everyone gets to enjoy these wines as much as we do!  Discounted pricing is listed.

Captain’s List Whites

Fernand & Laurent Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Premier Cru

The vines grow on 3.46 acres spread across several parcels of clay and limestone soils with significant stoney limestone deposits, which are located at 700–800 feet above sea level. An expressive wine with a pleasant nose of green apple and honeysuckle leads way to a round mouthfeel of apples, almonds and finely integrated oak.160

Sea Smoke Chardonnay

The grapes for this wine come from loamy, well-drained soils on the estate vineyard. An elegant Chardonnay with aromas of Meyer lemon zest, fresh cut melon and honeycomb. The nose is complemented by mandarin and a slight nuttiness in the focused mid-palate and refreshing cool climate acidity. 164

Captain’s List Reds

Sea Smoke 10 Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills

A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of black tea, blackberry and orange rind, then a myriad of savory spices, and a hint of jasmine. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of Ten’s ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish.172

 

Sea Smoke Southing Pinot Noir

From south facing vineyard slopes comes this ideal marriage of complexity and elegance. The ever-changing nose of the Southing exhibits Montmorency cherry, sage, hibiscus and subtle baking spices. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced by the estate vineyard’s characteristic cool climate acidity.172

 

Robert Foley Cabernet Sauvignon

This Napa Valley Cabernet combines the character of four AVAs. Weathered high-elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and Mt. Veeder provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels, and spiciness.  The lower elevation blocks of Calistoga with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation. Provide the lush mid-palate and fine tannin.  Ripe black cherry and rhubarb pie aromas, a thick almost sweet mouth-coating middle give way to the elegant finish.  Oak character is well-integrated with the fruit. 167

O’Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

A powerful, dense wine endowed with tremendous concentration and nicely tamed tannins.  Ripe black cherry, black plums, espresso, spice, leather, graphite and dried flowers give the wine its mysterious, somber feel. A gorgeous Cabernet that offers superb depth and plushness. One of the most distinctive signatures of this wine is the significant presence of blenders, all seven of the Bordeaux red varietals play a role in this vintage. 172

O’Shaughnessy Mt Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

This red is youthful, wound-up, and full of tension. Plush, polished tannins add to a weighty mouthfeel filled with deep flavors of cassis and blood orange, with seasonings of sage, herbes de Provence and black and white pepper. A showcase of sophisticated complexity. 218

Scribe West Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon

The vineyard sits on red volcanic soil on the southeastern facing slope. This cool ripening at 1,600 feet (well above the fog line) produces bright, energetic fruit that is unmistakably mountainside Napa.  Notes of juicy black cherry, red currants, and clove dominate the palate. 163

Robert Craig Affinity

Intense, savory and spice notes lend terrific aromatic nuance and vibrancy to play off a core of dark, inky fruit. Deep and dense, but also wonderfully nuanced, the 2018 Affinity has so much to offer. Most of the fruit is from a single site in Coombsville, with small additions from sites in Rutherford and Howell Mountain.140

Davis Cab 5

The Rockpile AVA is one of the newest in California with an elevation of 800 feet or higher) Rockpile is located at the northwest corner of the Dry Creek Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot were picked, sorted, fermented and barrel aged separately in 100% French oak. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The wine is not fined or filtered. 143

Robert Foley, Merlot, Napa Valley

Very ripe aromas of black currant and a trace of cedar introduce the first taste of this 100% varietal Merlot, which floods the middle with expansive ripe black fruit flavors from our Valley Floor vineyards as the gently gripping tannin of our Howell Mountain fruit coats the palate and lingers in a long finish. This “Merlot for Cabernet lovers” gracefully balances the best characteristics of these two remarkable Napa Valley AVAs. 140

Camigliano, Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG

Black currant, raspberry and boysenberry flavors are shaded by woodsy, wild herb, menthol and graphite notes in this distinctive red. Expressive, showing some fierce tannins flexing their muscles on the chewy, astringent finish. 140
