NC Cab Franc, 2014 Available: In Stock $50.00
Casa de Vinas has become a staple for Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah in the NC portfolio. In 2011, we planted Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot as well as Carmenere to extend our sourcing of Bordeaux varieties. Quite frankly, the fruit from Casa is prized because of the care and attention to detail from Julio Covarrubias. His hand is tried and true when it comes to farming wine in the Livermore Valley. The 2014 Cabernet Franc is our second offering from these plantings. The wine is concentrated with red berry fruit leading the way as herbal driven undertones follow. Moderate acidity keeps tension in this beautiful single variety farmed and produced with love.

NC CDV Malbec, 2014 Available: In Stock $50.00
We grafted Malbec and Cabernet Franc in the winter of 2010. We are onto our second year producing fruit from Casa de Vinas and the wines continues to impress and show exactly why we made the right decision. Located on the valley floor Casa has become a staple her at Nottingham Cellars. The Malbec from Casa is highlighted by its red and black berry fruit and a vineyard driven sense of minerality. As with all the fruit grown at this site, it has an inherent chocolate undertone that gives the wine a real sense of place. Lush with purple and dark fruit aromatics of plum and blackberries integrated well with notes of oak, cinnamon and cloves. A savory, mouthwatering wine with flavors of dark fruit and tannins that increase towards the finish coating your mouth and leaving you with a lovely lingering aftertaste. Enjoy now or lay this wine down for years to come.

2017 marked a big year for Chardonnay at Nottingham Cellars. We have taken our sourcing from a mix of Montery and Livermore Valley, to 100% Livermore. Now sourcing from three distinct vineyards within the valley, producing three very distinct wines, each one showcasing the immense caliber and versatility of our growing region. This 2017 Appellation Series Chardonnay is sourced from the Karl Wente vineyard, our Livermore Valley answer from the typical Riva Ranch in Monterey. Though the sourcing of the wine has changed the characteristics that you have come to know and love in our Appellation Series Chardonnay have not. A hint of flint and char on the nose opens to a bouquet of apricots, yellow apples, honey as the wine breathes and a palate that follows suit. Rich, mouthwatering and inviting with just the right amount of acid to drive the wine forward towards a long lingering finish that is sure to please even the pickiest of chardonnay drinkers.

Deeply colored in the glass, our 100% Livermore Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows intense blackcurrant, cherry plus coarse tobacco in the nose. With a little herbal and mint sitting squarely on the palate, this big red isn't shy with its chewy, mouth -filling structure and texture. Its finish is delightfully long; there's enough acidity and punch here to carry the bold flavors up and through.

NC LV Sauv Blanc, 2017 Available: In Stock $24.00
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc has once again restored our love for this varietal, but our now third vintage comes with a slight change from previous years! This year we have sourced from Ghielmetti like years past, but have added Donovan vineyards as well. The bright tropical, fruit forward characteristics we have come to expect from Ghielmetti are complimented and balanced perfectly by the citrus and grassy tones of Donovan. This wine is as bright and refreshing as ever. Bursting with ripe lemon, green apple, underripe white peach, passion fruit and tart pineapple followed by a vibrant and driven palate with a hint of minerality on the finish. A fan favorite every year, sauvignon blanc has quickly become a staple in our tasting room and has definitely found a permanent home amongst our ranks. Enjoy paired with chicken, oysters, scallops, your favorite summer meal or simply chilled on its own!

There’s a certain juiciness here; red fruits expand on the oak driven long finish. While vanilla notes are apparent, they blend in nicely with more damsel, briar and berry flavor.

NC Petit Verdot, 2013 Available: In Stock $50.00
For the first time in 2012, we decided to bring in more Petit Verdot than needed for our Bordeaux blends and produced this single varietal offering. We were extremely happy with the results and decided to continue the trend in 2013 as well! On the nose, a medley of wild blackberries, raspberries and blueberries dipped in chocolate and rolled in ground coffee shavings. The palate follows suit with rich black fruit dominating. The wine is rich and mouth filling with a rustic tannic structure and high tuned acid driven red fruit undertones. The tannin and acid suggest the wine will lay down for some time.

NC Petit Verdot, 2014 Available: In Stock $50.00
Slightly more feminine and higher tuned than years past, this 2014 Ghielmetti Petit Verdot is lush, inviting and begs for both hors d’oeuvre and the main course. Aromatics of candied red fruit, blueberry pie and mixed berry preserve play wonderfully with deeper, more rustic tones of dark chocolate covered cherries, gravel and earth that carry onto the palate. Light on entry this wine quickly envelops you with rich red and black fruit, strong mid-palate density and acid driven red fruit undertones we have come to expect from this wine and vineyard. Mouthwatering tannins and a soft sustained finish round out the wine and ensure you will always be wanting more. Fantastic for years to come or on your dinner table tonight, this wine makes the perfect accompaniment to any evening. Whether you decide to lay this wine down or not is up to you, but our recommendation... get two so you don’t have to decide.

NC Rose (WL), 2017 Available: In Stock $24.00
Rose has become a fan favorite here at NC, and the 2017 delivers all the things we love. High tuned with racy acidity, this Rose is a blend of primarily whole cluster press Merlot and small portions of saignee Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The whole cluster press Merlot is picked at very low brix and high tuned acidity to create the framework for this wine. The saignee components are bled off right at the time of destemming the reds to drive riper, melon driven fruit flavors to create balance. Juicy citrus fruit leads the way with complimentary tropical and melon flavors that help drive a smooth finish. The perfect summer time sipper out on the patio with friends, but a versitle wine that will pair perfectly with anything from ceviche and seafood to Thai or Thanksgiving dinner.

The Hill is our ode to this incredible site, its name inspired by the vast topography that makes Sachau so unique. Primarily Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon lending a hand in developing density and complexity, while Petit Verdot brings grip, blue fruited tones and mid-palate richness. Aromatically the wine exhibits classic red fruit and herbaceous undertones with darker fruits waiting to be revealed. On entry, red fruit leads the way, framed with medium acidity and soft tannins throughout. Darker fruit fills in the mid-palate as the wine travels. Oak plays a nice roll framing the fruit as the wine finishes.

Casa de Vinas has once again proved why it is a hallmark vineyard here in the Livermore Valley. This 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts out of the glass with aromatics of dark chocolate covered cherries and strawberries, streaks of bright red fruit and hints of herbal and olive undertones we have come to expect from this exceptional site. The wine is rich and mouthwatering with classic gritty texture and a long lingering finish of caramel, toffee and toasted coconut. A wonderful wine with many years left to lay down and drink in the future.

Blackberry and cherry cola are met with earthy tones of gravel, wet slate and shale. The wine is soft on entry, driven by dark cherry fruit and rose petals with vanilla and spice underneath. The fine grained tannins and vibrant acidity are hallmarks of the Harris Tesla vineyard. It is enjoyable now but has the tools necessary for long term aging. A splash decant goes a long way, but a full 2 hour decant is worth it if you have the patience.

VDCS Saccau, 2015 Available: In Stock $60.00
Since first producing merlot from Sachau Vineyard in 2014, we knew the site was special. We immediately upped our ante on merlot the next year, sourcing cab franc and cab sauv as well. The cab franc was a welcomed addition, the merlot continued to impress, but the cab sauv blew us all away. Situated behind Murrieta’s Well Winery, off Mines Rd, Sachau vineyards is hilly, steep and ranges from low sloping ravines to high elevated hilltops with various soils and varietal clones throughout. This 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, inviting and complex. Ripe red raspberries, homemade boysenberry pie and chocolate covered blueberries burst out the glass complimented by deeper notes of plum, black cherries, and graphite with green and herbaceous undertones. Smooth and rich across the palate, developing in the glass as it breathes. A perfect wine to compliment any meal now, or wait as it ages beautifully for years to come.

The Smith Ranch’s inherent rustic, almost old world aromatics are driven by dried black cherry and earthy tones. The wines from this block are tannic and rich, showing off that rustic flair in their youth but age gracefully for years to come. There is an absolutely gorgeous wine in here, and it can be summoned now with a lengthy decant. But the patient one who lays this wine down for 8-10 years will unveil its true potential. Its structural integrity and acid line indicate many, many great years ahead for this wine.

Vio Dessert Wine, 2014 Available: In Stock $30.00
Our first ever attempt at a fortified wine went off without a hitch. We were fermenting our Viognier for white wine, and originally weren’t planning on fortifying any of it. But the aromatics during the ferment had our crew thinking about how amazing this would be as a dessert white – why not peel off about 45 gallons and go for it? Glad we did – the wine is singing. Tropical fruit driven, and just the right amount of sweetness. The wine is a testament to our passion and how we feel about improvising in the winery – sometimes making decisions from a creative standpoint over a regimented one. Enjoy!

When you drink this wine – you become one of those people – that makes this world a better place. – Julio Casa de Vinas Petite Sirah – there is seriously nothing quite like it out there. Every single vintage this Petite Sirah is a home run for us. Very predictable, but when you reach for a bottle of Petite Sirah, this is what you should get. Black and blue fruit lead the way with Casa’s classic chocolatey undertones, gritty tannic structure and classic balanced acidity to give this rich, meaty wine life. The wine is a giver, just like the man that tends the vineyard, Mr. Julio Covarrubias.

The newest wine to adorn the map and stamp of our Passport Series label. 2016 was the first time we had ever sourced Carignan, let alone make it on its own, but this wine was so unique it deserved to stand alone. Carignan thrives in the sandy soils of Contra Costa County and the fruit from Trembath Vineyard is no exception. These 130+ year old vines are head trained and own rooted, and have been dry farmed for over a century. The resulting wine showcases the classic chalky white pepper, earth, and bright red fruit traditional of this varietal. Candied cranberry, raspberry, soft tannic structure makes this wine approachable in its youth, hence the screw top to lock in these ripe layers of flavors from this old vineyard. Allow the wine time to breath upon opening and witness the changes that take place in the glass. Enjoy at your next BBQ or simply amongst friends.

The Hayes Ranch Vineyard has been a keystone in our program since we launched Vasco Urbano. The cuttings of Syrah from Chateau Beaucastel were planted along the ridge of the vineyard, straddling the top of the hill at about 1000 feet above sea level facing south. The result is a wine showcasing the best notes Syrah has to offer. On the nose, Smokey, meaty undertones wrap brooding black berry, ripe plum driven fruit. The wine is full bodied, mouth-filling and dense and finishes with cigar box, blueberry preserves and is framed but a lush tannic structure and balanced acidity. Enjoy with smoked meats, bbq, or with your friends at a camp fire.

A better man than me once told me that “Mourvedre likes its face in the sun and its feet in the water”. Our Mourvedre is grown on the famous Raboli Vineyard, right in the heart of the Valley floor at a low point where rain water naturally accumulates. Additionally there is almost nothing blocking direct sun all day long through-out the growing season. It is because of these conditions that we are able to craft a wine with Mourvedre’s most signature characteristics on full display. Aromatics of cooked raspberry and leather-y funk lead the way with plum, red licorice, and chocolate covered cherries flooding the pallet. A staff favorite, get ready to embrace the funk that is Raboli Mourvedre.

The wonderful thing about muscat is that it’s one of the only wines that smell like grapes! Scents of candied apricot, white flower and crushed herbs transport you to the vineyard, and to our cellar during crush. Just off-dry, the slight sweetness of this wine helps accentuates the fruit yet still has enough acidity to remain balanced and vibrant throughout the palate. Light bodied and lively, with crisp citrus, orange peel, and grapefruit on the finish. To label simply as a summer-time sipper, would be a drastic understatement to this versatile wine, perfect all year round!

The result, a mouth-filling beauty, with the classic nutty caramelized texture and aromatics of aged tawny. With the vibrant acidity and tropical fruit background of Marina Ranch Grenache Rosé, it seems all is right in the world with a single sip. Pair with a rich, creamy bleu cheese to unlock the dimension of flavors throughout this wine.

VU Sheriff GSM, 2016 Available: In Stock $42.00
Each Vintage we craft ‘The Sheriff’ with the great houses of the Rhone Valley in mind. Over the past 5 years of making Rhone style wines, exploring the many great vineyards in Livermore Valley, we have narrowed our fruit sourcing down to 1 site per variety. The Marina Ranch Grenache is in our opinion the premier source for Grenache in the Livemore Valley. The vineyard was planted on the northwest facing hillside just north of Del Valle, from the famed Beaucastel Clones via Tablas Creek in Paso Robles. We have moved our Syrah sourcing to Ghielmetti Vineyard where weather is a bit cooler during the growing season retaining Syrah’s signature black fruited meatiness in-tact. Mourvedre comes from Raboli Vineyard in the heart of the region’s Valley floor. Together these wines create a single snap shot of what the Livermore Valley is capable with the classic Rhone varieties.

VU The Colonel, 2014 Available: In Stock $36.00
Based primarily in Mourvedre, "The Colonel" offers a new twist to Vasco Urbano's take on a Rhone Blend. Medium purple in color, look for brambly blackberry, savory peppercorn, and dried herbs on the nose. The palate is full and rich, mildly tannic with layers of both primary dark fruit flavors and meaty roasted notes.Aged multiple years in barrel, this red exhibits structure from both oak and variety. It has a long finish, medium-grained and firm. Drink now through 2020.
