Image result for golden pinot noir 2017 folktale
Pale Ruby in color, ripe cherries, strawberry preserves, floral notes of roses, earthiness,
and a touch of oak round out this wonderful Monterey Pinot. The palate shows a great balance
of fruit and oak on the palate which resembles cherry pie. A light, refreshing whip 
of watermelon on the finish. Richness mid-palate enhanced by floral notes indicative of Monterey.
The smooth finish and bright acid begs to be enjoyed with food. and, oh yeah, "Big Little Lies."

Garzon Single Vineyard Albarino

*** Making a BIG DEAL of IT***
Garzon 2017 Single Vineyard Albarino

Image result for garzon single vineyard albarino 2017

94 Points from James Suckling
Like Albariño’s home terroir in Galicia, granitic soils and proximity
to the Atlantic create a perfect habitat
for grapes that imbue the finished wine with minerality,
ripe peach pulp, green melons, and white flowers.
“Cherry blossom, daffodils, apple strudel, preserved lemons and peach pit…
Full body, loads of layers of citrus character.”

Bobal

Bobal Estenaas 2017
Jose Pastor Selections


Image result for estenas 2017 bobal

The Wine: Estenas Bobal Crafted from en vaso trained Bobal vines averaging 50 years of age
(some of them up to 100 years) located in the heart of Utiel-Requena on clay-calcareous soils.  
The wine is fermented in concrete tanks and raised in a mix of concrete and old American oak barrels.
This Bobal is medium-bodied and shows a mix of bright black and red fruits, spice, and minerals,
while maintaining moderate alcohol and high acidity. The result is a food friendly red wine
that can handle a very wide range of flavors and palate intensity.
You can casually mention that a traditional pairing is Gazpacho Manchego! 


The Winery: Founded in 1945 by Francisco Martinez Bermell, Vera de Estenas has been
crafting wines from their 47 hectares of estate fruit since their inception.
Situated at 800m elevation near the mouth of the Estenas river near the foot of the Sierra del Remedio mountains,
en vaso trained vineyards run northwest to southeast along a broad swath
of calcareous clay soils. Summer brings scorching heat, but a cooling wind called the Solano brings relief,
and nighttime temperatures can drop substantially due to the high elevation, helping to preserve acidity in the grapes.
Under the current leadership of Felix Martinez, Vera de Estenas is producing some
of the region’s most compelling wines, from Bobal vines as old as 100 years.

Domaine Couron Rose'

 

Domaine de Couron Rose' Ardèche, 2018

Image result for domaine couron rose wine
Domaine de Couron is a true family winery. Their marketing department is said to be
the kitchen table. A small Grenache vintage, the 2018 was hand harvested from 
reds planted exclusively for Rosé. This 95% Grenache (5% Carignan) is de-stemmed,
cold-soaked 4 hours for color before pressing, then cool-temperature, stainless-fermented.
Made without oak. A bountiful bouquet of fresh strawberries, watermelon and citrus zest
leads to a fresh full-flavored, but light-bodied mélange featuring light raspberry,
watermelon, strawberry and a lingering finish.

Domaine de Couron is sited in The Ardèche which has been inhabited by humans at least
since theUpper Paleolithic as attested by the famous cave paintings at Chauvet Pon d'Arc.

** French Wine **

French Rhone Blanc. Affordable. Lovely.

Image result for samorens cotes du rhone 2017

This bright, pale-golden wine opens to aromas of white fruits and flowers.
On the palate, it is nicely balanced with freshness provided by the Clairette
while the Grenache gives it body and a gentle softness.

Teaching Moment: Clairette?  Clairette is one of the oldest grapes used for wine in France,
dating back to the mid 1500’s.Clairette is used not only in the production of white wine,
it is also used to produce Vermouth. Typical flavors in the grape are green apple, lime, peach, licorice,
white peach and floral characteristics. Clairette is one of the few white wine grapes also used as part
of the blend from time to time in the production of red Chateauneuf du Pape wine.

In the 1990s, Carla Prospero and her daughter Nadia Zenato acquired a large 18th century farm
in the Sirmione area called Sansonina. With this purchase they accepted a challenge to disprove
some preconceptions. They set about producing exceptional red wine in a zone traditionally known
for whites, while demonstrating that well-structured red wine isn’t necessarily men’s work.
With a typically feminine combination of determination and sensitivity, 
Carla and Nadia have succeeded in producing hearty, powerful and elegant wines.

Neyers Vineyards Tasting

News Release: Tuesday, June 18th, 2019
About: Neyers Vineyards Wine Tasting @MetroWines
 
Please join us on Wednesday July 3rd from 3 to 6pm @MetroWines for barbecue perfect wines from Neyers Vineyards, Napa Valley. The tasting, hosted by Juniper Cooper of Mutual Distribution, is "on the house" with event pricing on featured bottles.
Because of the minimal intervention in the winemaking process, Neyers Vineyards is known for balanced and bold flavors. Both the winery and the winemaker have received awards from highly regarded reviewers.
"This is a great opportunity to taste California Wines that can really take your 4th of July celebration up a notch," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "Neyers is one of the best domestic producers of Carignan featured in the Sage Red Blend and the winner of the Carignan Blind Tasting last year @MetroWines!"
Neyers 304 Chardonnay
The winery calls this wine Chardonnay '304' because of the use of food grade 304 stainless steel vs French oak barrels for fermentation and storage. A portion of the wine was fermented in a concrete tank to add richness and bring out the minerality in the wine. There was continuous lees contact used in this unique fermentation process. It pairs with everything from a plate of oysters to a crisp roast chicken.

Neyers fondness for French Chablis led to a search for the right combination of grapes and winemaking techniques to more closely approximate this style of wine. Neyers needed to find Chardonnay fruit grown under especially cold conditions in order to ensure a high level of natural acidity and a lower than normal pH, both necessary to reach the balance essential to this style of wine. And Neyers wanted those grapes to be grown on soils that were rocky, in order to maximize the mineral character in the finished wine. 

Two vineyards provided the right stuff. Paul Larson Vineyard in Sonoma Carneros only a few hundred yards from the northern-most reach of the San Francisco Bay and the Trinchero Family Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. 

The fruit is harvested by hand, then whole-cluster pressed to yield bright, crisp juice. The fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks (made from Stainless Steel 304) with a mix of native and dry-active yeast strains, and the wine is then aged four months on the natural yeast lees to increase flavor, texture and stability. We filter the wine just before bottling, which typically leaves the secondary or malo-lactic fermentation less than 50% complete. The result is a fresh, crisp wine with no external oak flavor to interfere with the attractive lemon-lime component natural to cold climate Chardonnay.

Neyers Sage Canyon Red

An Old World-Styled Blend, the Sage Canyon Red derives its name from the region where the winery is located. The canyon created by the north face of Pritchard hill was settled in the 1830’s by a group of Ohio pioneers led to California by John Chiles, and in neighboring Chiles Valley they established a modern, self sustaining community with farms, homes, gardens, winemaking, mills and a distillery. The sage they introduced to the area grew wild in the canyon, hence the name we use today.

We draw together fruit from four separate areas of northern California for this wine: Grenache from the Sierra foothills, Carignan from Oakley, Mourvèdre from the southern Sonoma Valley near Glen Ellen, and Syrah from the Santa Lucia Highlands.

The grapes are all processed using traditional Rhône Valley techniques as they are fermented with 100% stem retention and crushed by foot for the first 30 days or so. The tanks are then drained and pressed, and the new wine is aged 8-10 months in used 60-gallon French oak barrels. Carignan makes up 45% of the finished wine, and the vines here are 140 years old, with yields that barely reach 1 ton/acre.

It’s a soft wine, wonderfully attractive in its youth with complex flavors that are attractive across the palate. 

Neyers Left Bank Red

Awarded a score of 90 POINTS from Wine Enthusiast. 

Left Bank Red is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. Both vineyards are planted in the gravelly soil at the south end of our Conn Valley Ranch. The soil profile from a recent well drilling has shown the gravel deposit on this section of the vineyard is almost 40 feet deep, and with the combination of nearby sandy-loam and basalt soils, serves as an ideal spot for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to mingle. Both parcels are certified organic with CCOF, and we practice modern sustainable farming. 

Winemaker Tadeo Borchardt focuses on small yields, grown on vines propagated from heirloom budwood selections. Each vineyard is separately hand-harvested, and each cluster is closely examined on our sorting table before de-stemming. Fermentation is carried out using only native, wild yeast, and the separate wines are aged in a combination of new and used 60-gallon French oak barrels. We bottle the Left Bank Red after 14 months of barrel aging, without fining or filtering the finished wine. The blend is immediately appealing, with its combination of bright raspberry flavors balanced by the charm of the wild cherry component of the Merlot. The gravelly soil provides a subtle hint of minerality, making the wine both complete and complex. 

A Little History:

Neyers Vineyards sits in the heart of the Napa Valley but Bruce’s experience with French wine importer Kermit Lynch has had an undeniable influence on our wines. Many of the French producers Bruce works with farm organically, make their wines naturally without use of cultured yeast or laboratory designed malo-lactic starter, and bottle their wines without fining or filtration. We like their results and utilize many of their ideas.

Our barrels are made in France, to our specifications, from wood that we buy in bulk and air dry for three years, two years longer than normal. All of our grapes are picked by hand, into small bins that hold only one-half ton. They are then laboriously hand sorted and inspected at the winery. Grapes that require travel of more than thirty minutes to our winery are delivered in refrigerated trucks.

Meet The Neyers:

Bruce Neyers

Bruce worked at a French wine importing company in the city before moving to Mayacamas Winery in the Napa Valley in 1972. He spent a year in Germany as an apprentice winemaker in 1974, then 17 years at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In 1991 he left to begin Neyers Vineyards. At the time Bruce and Barbara began the winery, Bruce accepted a position as national sales manager for Berkeley importer Kermit Lynch. Today he divides his time between these two positions.

Barbara Neyers

Barbara followed her academic training and became a teacher but was soon able to pursue her love of food and cooking as a chef and eventually manager at Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley. Bruce and Barbara raised three children on their home vineyard and ranch in the Conn Valley area of the Napa Valley, and now lead the varied and hectic lives of all vignerons; running a small business, growing grapes on their farm, and traveling around the country to oversee the distribution of their wines.

The History:
    As children growing up in Lebanon, Georges and Daniel fell in love with the rural way of life during visits to their grandfather’s ancient olive groves. Their world was turned upside down, however, when the Daou family home was struck by an errant rocket at the start of the Lebanese civil war.  
    The Daous were forced to emigrate to Paris and later moved to Southern France. It was here surrounded by vineyards that reminded them of their childhood that Georges and Daniel first began to dream of a life in wine.
Georges Daou, Proprietor
 It was only on DAOU Mountain that he discovered his true calling. Here, he became the shepherd of a dream: that the mountain’s wines would one day bring joy and pleasure to people around the world.      
   “The raw jewels of this mountain have been here for thousands of years, but they can only be unlocked through great imagination,” Georges says. “This is the quest we are wholly engaged in—and it is the journey that we invite you to walk with us.”
Daniel Daou, Proprietor & Winemaker
   Daniel has mastered both the science and creativity necessary to make transcendent wines. Upon discovering DAOU Mountain, he set out to elevate Paso Robles to a new level by becoming the region’s ambassador of Bordeaux varieties. His heart ultimately lies in the vineyard, where he spends the majority of his time living amongst the vines—attentive to every possibility for cultivating the purest expression of terroir.
