Champagne & Sparkling
Chateau de Bligny Grand Reserve Brut
100% estate produced. A deep golden robe underlined by a line of fine sparkling bubbles. A substantial, flowery (violet) nose, notes of white fruit, very ripe pear, creamy, slightly woody, mushrooms. A fine, dense structure, white fruit (peach, nectarine), gingerbread. An ample mouth and a wonderful length. 50% Chardonnay / 50% Pinot Noir. Critical Acclaim: Wine Spectator 90 points.
Drappier Carte d'Or Brut Urville France
92 Points Wine Spectator: This bright and zesty Champagne is lightly juicy and appealing, offering flavors of Honeycrisp apple, ripe white cherry, biscuit and pickled ginger. Balanced and lacy in texture, with a lingering, spiced finish. From the winemaker: The Carte d'Or cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style. With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one is almost tasting a Blanc de Noirs. Champagne with a fine aromatic richness, it opens with aromas of stoned fruits such as white vineyard peach. A spicy hint announces a powerful complex palate. A vinous Champagne of lovely complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.
Roederer Estate Brut NV Anderson Valley California
#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018 Roederer Estate Brut, the first California sparkling wine produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer champagne among the most sought-after in the world. Roederer's winemaking style is based on two elements: ownership of its own vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvee. All the grapes for the Anderson Valley wines are grown on the Estate. Each year, the winemaker selects a portion of the best wines for aging in Center of France oak casks. Aged from one to three years, wines from this reserve cellar are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvee in the traditional Roederer style, known for its body, finesse and depth of flavor. The Roederer Estate Brut debuted in October 1988, and has since established its reputation as one of California's premier sparklers, remaining true to the heritage of excellence and style of its French forebears.

Elegant and bright on the palate, with a finely-drawn, precise acidity. Frog's Leap has always placed itself among producers that champion precision and elegance, and the 2018 is a particularly crystalline example of this.

This Napa Valley can age for decades, it is intended to be enjoyed today at Hillside Tavern! The palate expresses beautiful aromas of blackberry contrasted perfectly with spiced notes of nutmeg. Luscious weight and texture on this wine, but also racy edge of well-balanced acidity on the palate. A powerful, yet elegant wine. A true expression of the Heitz wine making philosophy.
Jordan, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, CA '16
Aromas of black cherries wrapped in a spice box of nutmeg, clove, and allspice jump from the glass. The palate is filled with flavors of black currants and plum that lead seamlessly to silky tannins and black cherry notes. Blackberry, Mission fig and black cherry notes linger on the finish.

Anthill Farms, Sonoma Coast, California '19
A brilliant ruby color. Lifted and inviting aromas of cherry, dried roses, cardamom and tea leaf, with dark cherry that transfers to the palate. Mid-weight textural wine with tons of energy and length - fresh and drinkable.
Au Bon Climat, Santa Barbara County, CA '20
The Pinot Noirs of California’s Santa Barbara County may have gotten their biggest boost back in 2004 when they starred in “Sideways,” the now-classic wine road trip comedy-romance. This Jim Clendenon wine is fruit-driven followed by complex flavors of green tea, strawberry, cranberry, clove, and unsweetened dark chocolate.
Cobb Vineyards, 'Jack Hill Vineyard', Sonoma Coast, CA '16
From a cold, steep site located near the Pacific Ocean, Jack Hill is fleshy, spicy and integrated, brimming promisingly with a wealth of dark cherry, strawberry and blood orange. A tease of cola and cardamom give it a powerful middle of nuanced richness around a body of firm integrated tannin.

This wine is spicy, layered, and bright, with cherry, raspberry, and cinnamon mingling with each other in a lively dance. The mid palate spreads nicely to cover and coat while a burst of citrus zest freshens the palate. An opulent, elegant roundness throughout compliments a fine, dusty tannin that adds lovely cocoa powder complexity to the wine. Ample, yet balanced fruit bounces and buoys the structure.
Patz & Hall, Sonoma Coast, California '17
92 Points Wine & Spirits: James Hall blends this wine from 18 vineyards, mostly in the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley. He lets the fermentation start slowly, with ambient yeasts, then finishes it with cultured yeasts, aging the wine in French oak barrels (45 percent new) and bottling it unfiltered. The wine is beefy and youthfully tannic, even as the color is transparent in the glass. Behind the tannins, there’s a tight, cool and saline pinot with plush black-cherry flavors.
Peay, Sonoma Coast, California '17
93 Points Robert Parker: The 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast comes from 100% estate fruit this vintage.

Teutonic Wine Co., "Bergspitze", Laurel Vyd. Chehalem Mtns, Oregon '20
The fruit is grown on the top of Bald Peak in the Chehalem Mountains at 1250 feet elevation, hence we call this wine "Bergspitze" which means mountain top in German. 100% Alsatian Coury clones brought back in a suitcase by Charles Coury and planted in Oregon in 1965. The 2018 vintage delivers the typical characteristics of this vineyard, lighter colored but deep in aromatics of bright fruit notes of cherry and white raspberry with a slight dusting of chalkiness. The finish is long and keeps your palate reminded of what you just sipped until the next taste. This wine is light enough to pair with seafood and can hold up to pork and beef.
Syrah/Shiraz & Blends
Jonata, Todos, Ballard Canyon, California '15
94 Points Decanter: In the words of Jonata Winemaker Matt Dees, the rough recipe for the “Todos” blend is “~50% Syrah, ~30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and ~20% chaos.” A blend of both red and white varietals from the Rhône, Bordeaux and Italy, this avant-garde blend manages to successfully express the expansiveness of the property from which it comes. The nose is massive and dark, containing aromas of bramble, mesquite and burning embers. The palate is laden with roasted black and blue fruits, glued together by tree sap and black pepper. A truly unique powerhouse of a wine.
Y. Rousseau, Mendocino, CA '17
The winemaker, Yannick Rousseau, is a favorite of ours and we have done several wine dinners with him at Rapscallion. Amazing guy, and maker of the best Tannat wines in California! Generous, bright, robust, complex, and well-structured. On the nose, ripe blueberries and violet flower along with additional savory notes of black olives and cured meats. The palate is voluptuous, fresh, juicy with silky tannins, and a long finish. This is a GREAT WINE TO PAIR WITH BURGERS!
Marques de Cáceres Crianza Rioja '16
91 Points James Suckling: A fruity and delicious red with blackberry and cherry character. Medium body. Firm tannins.
Zinfandel & Blends
Marietta 'Old Vines' Lot Number 69, California
Introduced in 1982, Marietta utilizes old vine fruit in a multi-vintage blend to make a wine of substance and value. Lot #69 combines the 2015, 2016, and 2017 vintage. This is a classic old-fashioned California table red. This is a Zinfandel-based red with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Barbera, and Carignan.
Turley, 'Juvenile' California '16
Though the vast majority of Turley's wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of their old vine sites. They tag the vine when it is replanted so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and Turley pulls from 18 of their best vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, Vineyard 101, Fredericks and Kirschenmann. 90 Points Wine Spectator: Loaded with pepper and smoky sweet anise flavors. The raspberry flavors take on tannins toward the finish. Best after 2019.

Chardonnay, Cuvaison Napa Valley '19
Aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, vanilla, and clove spice.

This is a rich, plush and pleasing Chardonnay balanced beautifully by oak and refreshing fruit tones.

Pale yellow in color with hints of green with aromas of key lime and white flowers. Clean and bright on the palate with lovely acidity.
Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Marsanne, Mauzac, and Muscat Blend, Gérard Bertrand Orange Gold
Orange Gold pays tribute to the first orange wine of Georgia from 4,500 years ago. This ancestral winemaking technique uses white grapes that are vinified and fermented in whole bunches, like red wines. This maceration with the stalks an skins brings a remarkable orange color. It is an exceptional blend of 7 grape varieties. It is organic and vegan. The nose explodes with notes of white flowers, candied fruit, and white pepper. On the palate it is fresh and beautifully balanced. We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we do!
