Wines of Vision, Balance, and Character

Jim has other projects of passion that allow him to make artisan, small lots of distinctive wines from a wider spectrum of grape varietals under different brands.

The Last Chance Wines section represents our "tweener" wines - between a new release and a library wine. It's the tail end of the vintage. They are priced like a current release but have yet to become library wines. Next time you see them, the price may have  gone up - way up depending on the wine. Or you might not see them at all.  While it's tempting to go onto the new vintage, make sure you are not passing up a gem that has a little more time in the bottle.

Lush and attention grabbing. Powerful, with concentrated quince, pear tart and apple pastry flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. The richly spiced and cream-filled finish lingers with hints of dried green herbs. Two years in 100% new oak gives the wine many of its signatures, including a level of textural unctuousness that works beautifully here. Score 95 points Wine Enthusiast; Score 93 points Wine Spectator; Score 92 points Robert Parker; Score 92 points from Antonio Galloni Vinous; Score 90 points Connoisseur's Guide to CA Wine.
