Who: Steve Edmunds

What: Gamay

Where: El Dorado, California

How: Destemmed and pressed immediately.

Farming Method: Biodynamic

Fun Fact: If you’d like to get in touch with the inevitability of mortality check out Steve’s album ‘Singing to the Ghosts’ which is described as a ‘honky-tonk hosanna to the human condition, a dirt-road ode to mortality’.

Tasting Notes: This vintage is all about the depth and Bone-Jolly totally 100% delivers! A Gamay Noir filed with notes of white peach and spice.


2018 Kivelstadt Cellars ‘Twice Removed’ Rosé

Who: Jordan Kivelstadt

What: Blend of Carignan and Grenache

Where: Mendocino, California

How: The grapes were foot stomped and the juice was kept on the skins for about 12 hours before fermentation in stainless steel.

Farming Method: Organic

Fun Fact: Jordan is the founder Free Flow Wines; this company focuses on bringing sustainably farmed wines to restaurants in the form of kegs!

Tasting Notes: Nice acidity with notes of kiwi, strawberry, and watermelon.


2018 Kings Carey Rosé

Who: James Sparks

What: Grenache, Grenache, and Grenache!

Where: Sta. Rita Hills, California

How: These grapes were foot stomped! Then the juice spent 24 hours on the skins and was aged for 5 months on its lees in neutral barrels.

Farming Method: Organic

Fun Fact: Philly based artist Hawk Krall designs Kings Carey’s labels; Hawk is known for epic murals and the art design for the brewery Two Roads. 

Tasting Notes: A gush of minerality and wild cherry.


2018 Donkey & Goat ‘Isabel’s Cuvée’ Rosé

Who: Tracey and Jared Brandt

What: Grenache Gris 

Where: Mendocino, California

How: This undergoes a few hours maceration before it is fermented in a mixture of oak vats and neutral oak barrels for 4 months.

Farming Method: Biodynamic 

Fun Fact: This Rosé is ‘Isabel’s Cuvée’ and is named after one of the Brandt’s daughters, Isabel. Tracey and Jared were inspired to give Isabel her own cuvée because their wines frequently remind them of their daughters: free spirited and smile inducing. (And don’t worry, their daughter Lily has a cuvée too. Check out Lily’s Pét Nat in our sparkling wine section!)

Tasting Notes: Man, this is a wild ride. Guava, rosewater, tangerine, lychee, and blossoms!
