Uvaggio Barbera Lodi 2014

Uvaggio Barbera Lodi is made from 100% Barbera - 50 years old

An oft misunderstood and vastly underappreciated grape variety, Barbera posseses charms just awaiting discovery. Consigned to life in Piedmont as the second banana to the more glamorous, special-occasion Nebbiolo that goes into Barolo and Barbaresco, Barbera is what the locals drink daily. Its low tannins and higher acidity amplify its fruit while supporting the grape’s savory nature. While here in California it should be so lucky to have this level of prominence, ours is full, flavorful and firm. It has aromas of vanilla, toasty oak and heady dark fruits, all becoming more evident on the palate with a small burst of flavor. Its inherent complexity allows it to pair with just about anything you’re cooking, Mediterranean or not.

This remnant vineyard is one of four 'test blocks' that was planted for Gallo many decades ago, to evalute Barbera in Lodi for a contribution in elevating the quality and style of their Hearty Burgundy.
Uvaggio Barbera is full, rich and structured with aromas of toasty oak and ripe berries, plus flavors of stone fruit like cherry and plum; it possesses a complex finish.

Our mature vines are grafted to an old clone which has been cultivated in California since around the 1880’s.

We used a yeast strain isolated in Barolo and immediately following the alcoholic fermentation and pressing, we filled the wine to barrels for a malo-lactic conversion in wood. It was minimally handled and racked just once during winter. Total aging in cooperage was eight months and it consisted of 24% new French oak, 30% once used French oak, with the balance in fairly neutral French oak.

Bottled in Jul 2015; 14.2% alcohol, pH 3.39 & TA 7.1 g/l

95% Barbera - Leventini Vineyard 
3% Barbera - Firefall Vineyard
2% Charbono - Arrastra Vineyard
95% Lodi AVA

Its inherent complexity allows it to pair with just about anything you’re cooking, Mediterranean or not.


Review:

Superfresh raspberry aromas, rich cherry flavors and a texture that helps all that fruit cling to the palate make this medium-bodied wine compelling. It feels firm and structured due to good acidity, which supports the surprisingly bright and layered fruit flavors very well. Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Ferren Pinot Noir Silver Eagle Vineyard 2016

Winemaker Matt Courtney learned what he knows of Pinot Noir on the Sonoma Coast during his eight-year apprenticeship with Helen Turley of Marcassin Vineyards. At Ferren he employs artisan methods crafting his wines in small lots from single-vineyard sources with native fermentation and without fining or filtration. | Falling Bright

Silver Eagle Vineyard rests atop Stoetz Ridge, the land mass that divides the remote Sonoma Coast from the Russian River Valley. This vineyard experiences both the cooling ocean breezes of the nearby Pacific, as well as the warmth of the interior valley. The wine made from this unique confluence of climates is extraordinary: the Pinot Noir a rare balance of explosive wild berry, mouthwatering acidity, and rich, polished tannins; the Chardonnay a fascinating juxtaposition of briny minerality and candied citrus. [ The late Ulises Valdez - brilliant vineyard manager and owner of this vineyard - built his family home on this spectacular site.] | Ferren

Corne Loup Lirac Blanc 2018

Wolfberger Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann 2014

Wolfberger Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann  is made from 100 percent Pinot Gris

Honey, ripe fruits and sweet spices.
Long and ripe fruit flavors, with apricot and badian hints.

The Rangen Grand Cru is located in Thann, deep in the south of Alsace. Its particular soil is made of volcano-clastic rocks that drink up the heat of the day and send it back out again at night. The composition of the soil allows the roots of the vines to drink deeply from the mineral-rich sub-soil. Its southern exposure has the advantage of refreshing, drying winds in case of dampness. The high slopes are quite steep, reaching 68% in some places, requiring that the harvest be done by abseiling or roping down. Perfect for aging, these wines will reveal even more qualities after several years in the cellar.

Pair with duck honey and balsamic vinegar, foie gras, cheese like vacherin, comte 18 months, pork aigre douce (sweet and sour), dessert with apricot.

Roland Champion Champagne Special Club Grand Cru 2012

Champagne with rich and structured aromas. Very pleasant and generous roundness, nice length in mouth. Golden color with buttery and fruity aromas. All the expression of a magnificent terroir for your most pleasurable moments.To be a member of this Club, Champagne producers have to elaborate their Cuvées in their own facility, meaning the harvest, pressing, bottling, ridding, disgorging, etc., have to be done at the domaine/estate. Then, only the Recoltants-Manipulants are accepted. 

Everybody has to respect the Club’s rules to ensure the quality:
- * Only vintages * (A Special Club champagne may only be produced in outstanding vintages)
- Two blind tastings by a panel of passionate and distinguished oenologists and wine makers to control the quality: the first one after the blending, when the wine is still “Vin Clair” (juice) and another after the 3 years (or more) of ageing “sur lattes”. 
- There are 28 members, each of whom can produce his Special Club with his own techniques: * blending or “monocru” (only one grape variety) * “blanc de blancs” or “blanc de noirs”; ageing from 3 to 10 years, brut or extra-brut. 4 year ageing minimum. Strict selection of plots only made out of old vineyards.
"The Club Trésors", created in 1971, was the first association of wine makers in Champagne to advocate an approach to viticulture based on the utmost standards of quality. Since the creation of this pioneering association the members have strived to preserve the essence of their various terroirs and to promote the exceptional character of their wines.
