2022 Cameron, Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir, OR $35.99 bottle / $407.88($33.99) cas
Here it is: Cameron's ripest, juiciest Pinot Noir of the vintage. Comprised of fruit from Foster Farms (no, not the chicken factory-farm) vineyard, the 2022 Cameron Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir is super aromatic and loaded with ripe dark Pinot fruit framed by suave tannins. If Cameron's Dundee Hills bottlings are not fruit-forward enough for you, this should do the trick. Limited.

2022 Clos Cibonne, Tibouren Rosé, Cuvée Spéciale des Vignettes, Cotes de Provence $54.99 bottle / $305.94($50.99) six-pack
Geek Alert: This is a singular rosé. The Clos Cibonne estate is located some 800 meters from the Mediterranean Sea, in beautiful sunny Provence. There are a couple of key elements that set this rosé apart from all others. First, it's the only known rosé made from the antique varietal Tibouren, which is indigenous to the area. Second, the Cuvée Speciale de Vignettes is raised in giant 100+ year old foudres under a "fleurette" (a thin layer of yeast or "sous voile" in the Jura). The result is like nothing else.  Not only delicious and fascinating to enjoy in its youth, the Cuvée Speciale de Vignette ages well. Last summer I enjoyed the 2015! The Cuvée Spéciale des Vignettes is very complex on both the palate and the nose, is food-friendly, refreshing and above all, delicious. Although different, if you enjoy the great Viña Tondonia Rosado from Lopez de Heredia, then you need to try this wine! Very limited - first come, first served.

2022 Baudry, Chinon (Cabernet Franc), Les Granges, Loire Valley $19.99
If you're unfamiliar with Loire Cab Franc or have had your interest peaked by Washington or California Cab Francs and want to take the step into more complex and food-friendly wines, then here's the ticket! The Les Granges is Baudry's Chinon cuvée is made for near term drinking and it can't be beat for its price-to-quality ratio as an early-drinking bistro style red. The 2022 Les Granges is very aromatic with ripe Cab Franc fruit, fine pipe tobacco and a hint of earth. The medium-bodied palate offers plush dark raspberry fruit flavors with a mild soil signature and silky tannins. Enjoy now and over the next five years with burgers, steaks, mushroom dishes and all manner of pork. I think this is the best vintage I’ve ever had of the Les Granges. A great deal.

2021 Baudry, Chinon, Le Clos Guillot, Loire Valley $35.99 bottle / $197.94($32.99) six-pack
If you're already a fan of great Loire Valley Cabernet Franc, then here you go - great producer, great vineyard, great vintage, great price.  The 2021 vintage, Baudry's Clos Guillot is a throwback to the great Chinons of yesteryear (like the ‘80s and ‘90s) with its wild aromatic notes of dusty raspberries, damp earth, pipe tobacco, and a little brett (in the best way). The palate, built for aging with its suave tannins and crisp acidity, offers ample cassis, plum and raspberry fruit buttressed with notes of pepper and plenty of stoney minerality form the Clos Guillot's limestone and clay soil. Enjoy now, or better yet, over the next 15 to 20 years.

2022 François et Julien Pinon, Vouvray Sec, Loire Valley $24.99 bottle / $141.00($23.50) six-pack
While not as well known as Domaine Huet or Foreau, Francois Pinon has been issuing glorious Vouvrays (100% Chenin Blanc) for many years. Since Pinon and his importer have taken a quieter approach to marketing, these wines fly under the radar and sell for less than comparable Vouvrays. Offering beguiling aromas of lime zest, honey, and limestone, the palate shows perfect balance with great richness and intensity framed by lemony acidity, giving it an awesome finish. This is the ultimate combination of limestone minerality and perfect Chenin Blanc fruit. So delicious! Drink (often) now through 2027.

2021 Ch. Peybonhomme - Les - Tours, Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux $19.99
It’s been a while since we’ve promoted a Bordeaux in the newsletter. Then again, this has more in common with what Right Bank Bordeaux was like pre 1990 (before the region was Parkerized and big uber-ripe, oaked-up, acid-deficient wines became the norm in Bordeaux.) Chateau Peybonhomme is the fruit of biodynamic farming, native yeasts, wild fermentations, and new oak-free aging, none of which is typical in Bordeaux these days. Mostly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a touch of Malbec, the 2021 Peybonhomme offers aromas of black currants, leather and earth. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and lively with red fruit and dried herbs framed by fine-grained tannins. Enjoy now and over the next four or five years. A great value!

2019 Feudo Montoni, Perricone, Core, Sicilia IGT, Sicily $23.89
Geek alert: Perricone is a red grape variety that is very sparsely planted in northwestern Sicily, and pretty much nowhere else. Trying to come up with a reference point for this wine, I was stumped as it’s truly unique. Aromas of violets, blueberries and a tinge of mushroom waft from the glass and lead to an appealing rustic palate with dark fruit and a streak of minerality enveloped in velvety tannins. Enjoy with burgers, grilled sausages, steak, lamb, hearty casseroles and sharp sheep cheeses over the next few years. “A mix of dusty ashen stone, black currants and hints of animal musk lifts up from the darkly alluring 2019 Perricone Core. This fills the palate with pliant, soft textures complemented by juicy notes of blackberry and inner lavender tones. It remains energetic and fruit-focused even as youthful grippy tannins settle in through the long finale, where hints of licorice and blueberry skins resonate. Well done. Drink through 2027.” - 92 Vinous

2022 Elvio Cogno, Nascetta di Novello Langhe, Anas-Cetta, Piedmont $26.99 bottle / $149.94($24.99) six-pack
Let’s face it- while Piedmont is home to some of the greatest red wines on earth, the vast majority of the whites are…well…pretty boring. Sure, there are some pretty cool Timorasso wines from the outskirts of Piedmont, but here we finally have an exciting white wine from the heart of the Langhe. There are tiny plantings of Nascetta scattered abound the Langhe, but the commune of Novello is where it reaches its apogee. Elvio Cogno is rightfully known for their outstanding Barolo bottlings, but here we have an excellent example of the rare Nascetta varietal. This aromatic, medium-bodied dry white is crisp and refreshing with very good complexity. Enjoy with light antipasti, white fleshed fish, crustaceans, vegetarian fare or just by itself now and over the next five to seven years. “Always refreshing, this offers an exciting change of pace with honeysuckle, white peach, apple and quince. There are salty hints of crushed mineral too.” - 92 Wine Advocate & “Exuberant with aromas of broth and tropical, herbal, and saline notes. Medium-bodied, with a lovely waxy viscosity, it reveals elements of saline and fresh pineapple, without feeling bloated or heavy. It has an Alpine sensibility, with a light bitter almond note on the finish as well as lime blossom and citrus. This fresh white would work over a broad spectrum of food pairings and could be a sommelier’s secret weapon.” - 92+ Jeb Dunnuck

2015 Lopez de Heredia, Rioja, Viña Cubillo, Spain $27.99
Along with La Rioja Alta, Lopez de Heredia is the greatest source of age-worthy traditional Rioja. Viña Cubillo is comprised mainly of 40+ year old Tempranillo with a little Garnacha, and a touch each of Mazuelo and Graciano. Even though it is released as a Crianza, it meets the requirements of a Reserva and almost Gran Reserva. This red is highly aromatic with notes of baking spices, leather, orange peel and dried cherries. Super delicious now, it will age beautifully for many years. 93 Wine Advocate

NV (2019) Pertois-Lebrun, Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs, L’Extravertie, Grand Cru Champagne $49.99
Over the past couple years, Pertois-Lebrun has become our go-to Blanc de Blancs Champagne producer, ousting some of our other long-time and much better know Grower Champagne producers. The Champagnes of Pertois-Lebrun are precise and chiseled with pristine fruit supported by balancing acidity. From the outstanding 2019 vintage, the L’Extravertie offers a vein of minerality that runs throughout the palate. Enjoy now, or let it keep improving and gaining in complexity over the next decade. A stunning value! “The NV (2019) Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs L’Extravertie Grand Cru was picked in Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oiry, Cramant and Oger and the base wines were fermented in (neutral) oak. Cold butter and gentle cream appear teasingly on the nose. The palate is immediately taut but benefits from fine mousse. This has the salty slenderness of chalk-based blanc de blancs and a beautifully bracing nature of that style, only marginally softened by oak and displaying lovely depth. So lively and bright. Dosage 3.5gr/L. Drink through 2033.” - 91 Vinous I think it’s even better than the awkward review above.

2021 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis Tête d’Or $48.99 bottle / $279.00($46.50) six-pack
Ah, 2021 Chablis! Here is another great example of this classic vintage of Chablis. 2021 was the coolest growing season in Chablis in over a decade and is reminiscent of the great vintages of yesteryear before climate change started disrupting and changing the very nature of what Chablis was/is. Along with terroir, the temperature of the growing season is what really sets Chablis apart from all other regions of the world that grow Chardonnay.  There is no mistaking this wine for anything other than Chablis. Both the nose and palate so clearly articulate their "Chablisness."  Domaine Billaud-Simon’s Tête d’Or is sourced from 28-year-old vines from a domaine-owned, south/southeast facing 3 hectare parcel at the foot of the famous Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru, in the heart of the Chablis. Briny aromas of oyster shell, chalk, lemon curd and lime segue to the nervy palate that offers a pleasing tension between meyer lemon fruit and its strong core of minerality. Enjoy over now and through 2031.

2021 Ian Brand & Family, Cabernet Pfeffer, Gimelli, Cienega Valley, CA $39.99 bottle / $227.94($37.99) six-pack
Geek alert: Cabernet Pfeffer is a bit of a mystery. Originally thought to be a fusion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Trousseau, it has since been found by U.C. Davis to be genetically identical to the obscure Bordeaux variety Mourtaou. The lifted aromatics begins with an enticing red currant and wild strawberry note along with cedar dried herbs de Provence. The medium-bodied palate is very savory - especially for a California red - with notes of red currants, white pepper and oregano. Enjoy this delicious, food-friendly red now and over the next eight to ten years with pork, beef, lamb and mushroom dishes. This is really cool wine! - Super limited
