Renegade Wines and Wine Storage: Santa Barbara's Oldest Wine Shop. Wines from all over the world

Last Call On Some of the Best Wines from 2017


2015 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage (France, Northern Rhone) $34
You've heard about the epic Northern Rhone vintage of 2015 and Alain Graillot does not disappoint.
Deep garnet color. Aromatic with deep and dark secondary notes- melted iron, mesquite smoke, pressed violets, red currant fruit, eastern spices. Gorgeously layered on the palate, showing open black fruits backed with sanguine earth, floral and spice depth. Seamless silky texture, medium-bodied, with well-laid acidity and fine tannins. Good depth and a long finish.

2015 Olivier Riviere Rioja Ganko (Spain, La Rioja Alta) $45
Ganko is a nickname that Olivier has acquired but this one came from his Japanese importer. It means “stubborn”, which is a useful trait for any outsider, especially one making wine his own way in Rioja. Ganko comes from a site at 600 meters in elevation near the village of Cárdenas in Rioja Alta. Here Olivier farms 60–90 year old Garnacha and Mazuelo in sandy and ferrous, red clay soils, with biodynamic practices.
Wild berry and peppery plum! Yum Yum!

2015 Jean-Marc Millot Bourgogne Rouge (France, Burgundy) $36
This is a pure, soft, mesmerising Pinot Noir. Full of life and body. Fresh red berry fruit, a solid core of substance, light spice on the prolonged finish. GREAT Bourgogne Rouge. We paired this wine with the duck entree at Opal Restaurant and Bar finding the two absolutely fabulous!


2014 Francois Leclerc Gevrey-Chambertin (France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits) $64
THIS is what we think of as classic, old school Gevrey. Dark, brooding fruit, hints of mushroom and damp earth, but NOT TOO MUCH. Acidity and no noticeable oak. A food wine for sure. Once again we paired this with duck, but a week later this was equally brilliant with a plate of Morels in a "light" veal reduction sauce.
