Bonterra, Lake County, Bartolucci Vineyard, Muscat 2004 This wine has been well-made since the good old days when the you could taste it at the beautiful Valley Oaks facility. There are the compelling floral notes associated with Muscat plus some pastry-like complexity with the age of this wine. Unfortunately, one of two bottles was off. The grapes for this wine were certified organic. P&B in Hopland 9% $15.99 suggested retail for a 375ml bottle Bonterra

Joseph Filippi, Cucamonga Valley, Winemaker’s Reserve, Limited Release, Creme de la Creme nv Historic winery, historic region and one of the few to champion the making of Sherry-style wines in California. There is plenty of caramel to smell and taste with an integrated sense of the alcohol addition. Nice. The grapes behind this include those for traditional Sherry production, viz., Palomino and Pedro Ximenez, as well as Mission and Grenache. Crafted and bottled in Rancho Cucamonga 18.5% $16 at the winery for a 500ml bottle Joseph Filippi
