In this deep ruby-colored wine, aromas of lilacs, dried leaves and flint are fully integrated with firm tannins and flavors of strawberries and plums. A wine of power and restraint.
This full-bodied, mature, traditional nebbiolo from northern Piedmont shows clarity, complexity, persistence and the benchmark notes of tar and roses.
A ruby colored wine that tastes of wild berries from the forest floor laced with vanilla, dried tobacco and smoke. Highly perfumed on the nose, the flavors are harmonious and the texture bright and nimble.
A fascinating wine made with 100% Grand Cru chardonnay from the last twenty-six vintages. White flowers and minerals mingle with flavors of stone fruit and brioche in this richly textured Champagne.
This biodynamic wine is a blend of merlot and cabernet franc with flavors of wild blackberries, mint, tobacco and fresh plums. The wine is generous and silky with firm integrated tannins but still very much in its youth.
This beguiling golden-hued dry white wine is at once fresh, complex and opulent.
A full-bodied tempranillo garnacha blend with notes of plums, blackberries and flint. Its weight is offset by generous acidity and firm tannins. Ample barrel and bottle aging produce a wine that is integrated and showing maturity upon release.
A creamy and expansive Champagne with aromas of strawberries and almonds. The wine is delightfully frothy.
Santa Barbara County’s Star Lane Vineyard holds much of its cabernet sauvignon for the Japanese market, which generally prefers aged cabernet in part because it pairs better with their cuisine (umami gathers in wine as it ages). Limited amounts of back vintages are available directly from the winery.
