Staff Pick Notes

Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts are progressive winemakers. By finding distinctive vineyards as far north as Mendocino County, and south as the Santa Cruz Mountains, they are challenging traditional notions of what California wine can and should be. Their 2017 Rosé is a friendly offering, though Arnot Roberts pushes the envelope by using 100% Toriga Nacional—a varietal native to Portugual and often found in Port. The results are glorious and delicious! It is full of juicy fruit, and yet super dry. they've managed to retain excellent acidity, too, thanks to growing far north at 1400 feet, in the Lake County AVA. Get it while it's here because I'll be drinking this all summer!

The best bottles are powerful and ageworthy, and are beginning to fetch prices you'd never have expected from Spanish wines just a few years ago. Tempranillo is often used in blends with Bordeaux grapes such as...
