2015 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Tondre Grapefield - 943 Clone - Santa Lucia Highlands

Notes from Chuck: Let's just assume that Alarid Family, owners of the Tondre Grapefield are among the most talented growers in California. Apply their experience to a unique Dijon 943 Clone, grown in an ideal Pinot Noir location (Santa Lucia Highlands) and perfection is the result. This wine is a Pinot Noir lover's dream. We are all looking for the equivalent of the holy grail of Pinot Noir. The 943 clone from Tondre Grapefield may be it!

2014 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Donum Estate - Carneros

Notes from Chuck: If a list of the most talented wine growers in California were to be published - Anne Moller-Racke's name would top the list. The wines produced at the Donum Estate are consistently the best examples of what is possible with Pinot Noir in California. We are blessed to have the opportunity to work with a small lot of grapes from this very special and coveted vineyard. This wine is a true gem that reflects the passion and skill that starts in the vineyard. Enjoy - Chuck

2012 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Ferrington Vineyard - Anderson Valley

Notes from Chuck:  If complexity is what you seek, look no further. The warm days of the Anderson Valley develop all of the rich dark fruit and savory meaty flavors, the cool nights turn up the volume with crisp acidity and bright cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate. Simply put, there is a lot going on in the glass. With a few years under it's belt, this wine is just starting to release the subtle earthy flavors that only Pinot Noir is capable of. -Cheers - Chuck

2014 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Deer Meadows Vineyard - Anderson Valley

Notes from Chuck: If ageability and complexity determine the value of a Pinot Noir -- and we believe they do -- few other single-vineyards in California deliver the goods like Deer Meadows. Perfect structure combined with a plethora of flavors are the trademarks of this Anderson Valley hillside vineyard.  I only included one bottle, with a little extra savings for Members. I realize that this wine is a little more of an investment; my advice to you is to add a few extra bottles of this beauty. In five, ten, or twenty years you will thank me for the experience this wine will provide. There is nothing more enthralling in the world of wine than a Pinot Noir that is aged to perfection. - Cheers - Chuck

2015 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Lester Family Vineyard - Santa Cruz Mountains

Instructions for use from Chuck: 

Find a picnic table overlooking the ocean, somewhere you can smell the ocean, the surrounding trees and earth. Bring some simple snacks like mushroom and truffle paté, stinky cheese (Epoisses is my personal fav), oh, and someone you love. Open this bottle and talk about the bucket list items you want to share. Let the wine and nibbles be the background to a stimulating conversation that gives you hope and joy.

For your second bottle. Pour yourself a glass and right back to your oceanside conversation you will go. Great Pinot Noir is a time machine to remind you of the great moments in your life. 

Regular Price $90 - Special Member Price $72

2012 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Soberaned Vineyard - Santa Lucia Highlands

Instructions for use from Chuck:  

Find some Iberico ham, some nice wine glasses, seductive music (Old Love from Eric Clapton comes to mind), and someone you want to hold hands with. Pour a glass and tell your friend your wildest hopes and dreams. Then realize that the folks who produced the wine and ham for you made their dreams come true. You have helped make this possible. Your appreciation will give you the power to make your own dreams come true. 

Open your second bottle as your experience your dream.
