One of my absolute favorite things about the Garagiste Festivals is the opportunity to discover new wines and meet the incredibly gifted people who make them.

Even with a few Garagiste Festivals under my belt, I’m always amazed by how much new, little-known wine talent shows up at each event to share the fruits of their labor – some of whom are pouring their very first vintage.  I’ve discovered many of my favorite wines at past Garagiste Festivals, but I also love exploring some new ones.

That being said, here are a few of my new favorites from the recent Garagiste Festival: Urban Exposure at the iconic Wiltern theater…

Frequency Wines

Frequency Wines

Frequency Wines

Frequency Wines is a label started by brother-sister duo Almond & Zac Wasserman.  Since their first vintage in 2010, Frequency has received rave reviews from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate for their beautifully crafted Rhone varietals, and last year they opened their own tasting room in the hip little town of Los Alamos, CA.  I absolutely loved their 2014 GSM & 2014 Zotovich Syrah.

Artisan Uprising

Artisan Uprising’s David & William Vondrasek are true Garagistes.  Before releasing their first commercial vintage in 2012, the brothers had already spent years learning from their grandfather who made wine in his basement, and crafting wines for the family to enjoy.  After winning a few competitions, developing their own style, and stockpiling more wine than the family could consume, Artisan Uprising was born.  Now the brothers meticulously hand craft their wines using grapes from some of the best vineyards in Paso Robles and adorn each bottle with a beautiful label drawn by their sister.

Coda Wines

CODA Wines

Spencer Daly of Coda Wines

Spencer Daly of Coda Wines is one of the coolest winemakers I’ve met.  The 25-year-old just released his first vintage as an homage to the two things he loves most – music and wine.  A coda in the musical sense typically designates a movement or structure in a piece of music.  Spencer has named each wine under the Coda label with a musical term, harmoniously blending his two passions.

Spencer believes both music and wine are a reflection of the artist who created them, and both evoke certain moods and experiences.  I couldn’t agree more.  I thought his 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and 2013 Syrah were particularly delicious and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Coda.

Weatherborne Wine Corp.

Cris Carter of Weatherborne Wine Corp.

Cris Carter of Weatherborne Wine Corp.

To me, there’s nothing like an exceptional Pinot Noir and Cris Carter of Weatherborne Wine Corp is making just that.  I’ve been raving about Weatherborne since Cris released his first vintage last year – a 2012 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir crafted using grapes from the John Sebastiano and Melville Vineyards.

This year, he released his 2013 vintage, which is 100% John Sebastiano fruit.      While the 2012 is a bit tart and juicy with a bright acidity, the 2013 is darker, spicier, and multi-layered.  Weatherborne has definitely proven that the same grape – Pinot Noir – can produce two incredible wines with distinctly different flavor profiles.

Other Garagiste wines I highly recommend include:
Alta Colina
Archium Cellars
Casa Dumetz
Cholame Vineyard
Cloak & Dagger Wines
Dilecta Wines
Larner Wine
C. Nagy Wines
Tercero Wines

I hope to see everyone at the next Garagiste Festival in Paso Robles in November… Cheers!

 

5 Must-Try Rosé Wines For Summertime

With longer, warmer days upon us, it seems like Rosé season has finally arrived.  Grab a chair in the sun and enjoy one of these bottles on a lazy Summer afternoon.

Arnot-Roberts 2014 Rosé
The Arnot-Roberts 2014 Rosé is made from Touriga Nacional, which is one of Portugal’s finest varietals and is typically used to make Port.  Arnot-Roberts  uses grapes grown in volcanic/river rock soils of the Luchsinger Vineyard in Lake County to make their Rosé.  It’s a very dry wine with a nice, crisp acidity.  Not a Rosé for everyone, but I thought it was quite good.

Copain 2014 “Tous Ensemble” Rosé
Copain’s 2014 “Tous Ensemble” Rosé is made from Pinot Noir from the North Coast AVA and is full of juicy red fruit and a bright acidity.  This wine is beautifully balanced and ideal to pair with food.

ONX “Indie” 2014 Rosé
ONX has been putting out some outstanding wines and the “Indie” Rosé is no exception.  Made from Tempranillo, Indie achieves an effortless harmony between slightly sweet red berry and watermelon notes, and refreshing acidity.  This wine is very easy to drink.  I recommend having several bottles of Indie chilled and ready to go for those warm Summer days.

Cholame Vineyard 2014 Rosé
I just recently discovered the wines of Cholame Vineyard and am so happy I did.  Their newly-released 2014 Rosé is full of fresh strawberry with a beautiful finish that will appeal to a wide variety of palates.  Cholame is a Native American word meaning “The Beautiful One” which describes this wine perfectly.

Brachetto d’ Acqui DOCG “Conti di Gropello”
I’m typically not a fan of sweet wines and was hesitant to include a sparkling wine on this list, however after tasting the Conte di Gropello Brachetto d’ Acqui, I couldn’t resist.  This deep pink, low alcohol (6.5%) sparkling wine is like summertime in a glass.  It tastes like sugar-dusted wild strawberries with a pleasantly balanced finish and a frothy effervescence…almost like an adult version of strawberry soda.  It’s guaranteed to make those who lean towards sweeter wines (Moscato, etc.) very happy.

Larner Vineyard & Winery | Los Olivos, CA

Oftentimes when I visit a winery, I find that I enjoy meeting the people involved in making the wine just as much as I enjoy the wine itself.  Such was the case when I visited Larner Vineyard & Winery in Los Olivos, CA.

I’m fascinated by the winemaking process and am always excited when I get to chat with a winemaker I admire first hand.  Needless to say, I was thrilled when I walked into the Larner tasting room on a recent Saturday, only to find that it was empty and that winemaker & vineyard manager Michael Larner was behind the bar pouring.

Michael’s passion for wine is tireless.  After receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Geology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, he went on to earn his Master’s in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis.  He then apprenticed in Tuscany and the Rhone Valley, co-founded the Ballard Canyon AVA, was named vice president of  the Santa Barbara County Vintners Association, and began teaching winemaking & wine appreciation classes in Santa Maria.  Somehow he and his wife Christina found time to make the first vintage of Larner Wines in 2009 and it’s been a family run operation ever since.

Located in a section of the Los Olivos General Store, the Larner tasting room is tiny and intimate. We walked up to the counter which is just big enough for about two people and Michael poured our first taste – a 2013 Malvasia Bianca.

From that point, we spent over an hour chatting with Michael about everything from vineyard management to the challenges that come with harvest & production to how to market & distribute the final product – particularly if you’re a small artisan winery.  Michael is literally hands-on every step of the way in his craft, which made the visit not only enjoyable, but educational as well.

After the Malvasia Bianca, we tasted a 2012 Rose, a 2010 proprietary GSM blend called Elemental, a 2010 Syrah, a 2009 Reserve Syrah, and a 2010 Grenache.  Larner specializes in Rhone varietals, all of which were nicely balanced and very food friendly.  I particularly liked the ’09 Reserve Syrah and the ’10 Grenache.

Law Estate Wines | Paso Robles, CA — A Post-Opening Update…

Last time I visited Law Estate Wines, it was more of a construction site than a finished project.  This past weekend, I visited the winery again in its completed form and was utterly blown away.  From the friendly and personal attention of the staff to the breathtaking architecture to the incredible wines, Law Estate is beyond compare.

I feel like the photos speak volumes without me saying a word.  Enjoy a look around this amazing place…

Due to overwhelming interest in their 2010 vintage, Law Estate’s current releases are sold out (and from what I understand, the tasting room is closed) until they unveil the 2011’s in early September.  Be sure to plan for a visit this Fall because, based on what I got a chance to sample this weekend, the 2011’s are tasting even more delicious than the 2010’s.

Thanks again to Melissa, Oliver, and everyone at Law Estate Wines.  I’m sure I’ll see you again soon…

Wind Gap Wines | The Barlow – Sebastopol, CA

Wind Gap Wines

Wind Gap Wines

I’ve noticed a trend recently of winemakers using a very minimalist approach to their craft.  By selecting the best grapes from specific vineyard sites, using wild yeasts, and remaining as non-interventionist as possible, they’re allowing the fruit to express itself in an honest, unique way.

An excellent example of this sort of wine making is what Pax Mahle is doing at Wind Gap Wines.  I had a chance to visit his beautiful, newly opened tasting room at The Barlow in Sebastopol, CA last week and tasted through his current portfolio.

The grapes used to make Wind Gap Wines are sourced from vineyards throughout California that are directly influenced by, or planted along, different “wind gaps”.  These are essentially valleys cut through the coastal hillsides where winds flow inland, impacting the wine growing regions along their path.

Wind Gap Wines

I was really impressed by the uniqueness of the wines in the Wind Gap portfolio.  As part of his minimalist wine making approach, Pax uses mostly neutral fermentation vessels (stainless steel, concrete & neutral oak), and keeps his alcohol levels moderate, which allows the fruit to truly shine.

Tasters have the option of trying 4 wines for $12 or 6 wines for $24.  Wines are also sold “a la carte” by the glass and carafe to enjoy on site.  I opted to try 6, which included a slightly effervescent ’13 Arinto Pierce Ranch, a ’13 Trousseau Gris, a ’12 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir , a bright ’12 Grenache from the Sceales Vineyard (some of whose vines are 80 years old), and 2 very different yet equally delicious Syrahs.  I also got to sample the ’13 North Coast Rose.

I particularly liked the ’13 Arinto and the ’13 North Coast Rose – both of which are sold in $40 refillable growlers ($28 for the refill) and perfect for summertime.  I also loved the slightly spicy ’12 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and the ’08 Russian River Syrah.

Babcock Winery & Vineyards | Lompoc, CA

Babcock Winery & Vineyards

Babcock Winery & Vineyards

One of my favorite new wineries is actually not new at all. Established in 1978, Babcock Winery & Vineyards in Lompoc, CA has a rich history in the Santa Ynez Valley and is one of the best producers of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir around.

Babcock Winery & Vineyards

Babcock Winery & Vineyards

Back in 1978, Mona & Walter Babcock purchased a 110 acre property on Highway 246 near Lompoc where they planted 20 acres of Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and sold small amounts of fruit to some of the most prominent local winemakers.

As rave reviews starting pouring in for the wines produced using fruit from their vineyard, the Babcock’s decided to open a small winery and started producing their own wines.  And the rest is history.

Mona & Walter’s son, Bryan has been crafting small-lot, terroir driven wines from the gorgeous Babcock Winery in the Santa Rita Hills since the early 1980’s.  The winery is still family owned and operated to this day.

I just FINALLY visited Babcock for the first time about a month ago and had the good fortune of visiting during their annual open house weekend.  The first thing I noticed was the uber cool tasting room, which had a vintage, rock star vibe and was surrounded by the most gorgeous rolling vineyards.  For dog owners, Babcock is very dog-friendly as long as they are kept on a leash.

Since it was the annual open house, I had a rare chance to taste Babcock’s entire portfolio of wines, as well as an opportunity to try two incredible, yet-to-be-released wines at the futures barrel tasting.  I was truly blown away.

I was impressed by the first few wines we tried, which included a 2012 Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc and a 2011 “Upper Crust” Syrah.  As we worked our way through the list to the “Terroir Extraordinaire” offerings, the wines became more complex and multi-layered.  Bryan’s attention to detail and winemaking expertise was evident in each and every sip.

I would have loved to take home a bottle of each wine I tried, but I narrowed my selection to a 2012 “Microcosm” Pinot Noir for which there are simply no words, a juicy 2012 “Precocious” Pinot Noir, and a couple bottles of the yet-to-be-released 2013 “The Limit” Chardonnay from the Radian Vineyard, Santa Rita Hills.

Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery | Healdsburg, CA

Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery

Over the last year or so, I’ve fallen madly in love with Sonoma County.  In particular, the area of the Russian River Valley encircled by the towns of Guerneville, Sebastopol & Healdsburg.  From the towering Redwoods to the rocky coastline and everything in between, the natural beauty in this area is unsurpassed.

Towering pines line the driveway up to Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery

The more I explore the wines from this area, the more I realize how amazing they are as well.  This year, we decided to escape LA and ring in the new year in a cozy cabin tucked among the Sequoias in Guerneville.

With nearly all the tasting rooms closed on New Year’s Eve, we headed to the nearby Russian River Brewing Company for some outstanding beers, including a Brown Ale aged in used Pinot Noir barrels from local Sonoma County wineries called Supplication.  When the tasting rooms reopened after the holiday, I couldn’t wait to try some new wines.

My first wine of 2014 was at Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery.  The Gary Farrell Winery is nestled among the pines on a hillside that offers sweeping views of the Russian River Valley below.  Because it was such a beautiful day, we decided to do a Terrace Tasting which included 6 wines for $25 per person.  There was also a Traditional Tasting available inside at the tasting bar for $15 per person.

Hospitality manager Lavonne Holmes was our host for the afternoon and we couldn’t have been luckier.  She walked us through a series of Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs & Zinfandels while explaining the history of Gary Farrell, and sharing her rich personal knowledge and experiences in the wine industry.  Not only was she a pleasure to talk to, but she also made my passion for wine burn even brighter.

All the wines we tried were beautifully crafted and very nicely balanced.  I particularly liked the 2011 Rochioli-Allen Vineyard Chardonnay, the 2011 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir, and the bold, mouth-watering 2011 Bradford Mountain Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley.
