The Chronicle has been a purveyor of fine wines for many years.  We recently added a variety of wines to better serve the demands of our customers.  While we do not have the inventory of the bigger wine shops, many of the wines we carry are made in small quantities and sell out quickly.  Our focus has been the value wines that are great for every day drinking, as well as wines for those special occasions.

The staff is committed to providing not only the quality and professionalism of an established wine store, but also the personalized service and helpfulness of your local “cozy” neighborhood wine shop.  If you have not been to the Chronicle lately, you will be surprised on your next visit with a fully stock shelves with very interesting wines, and at a great price.

2010 Anthonij Rubert Cabernet Sauvignon - $49.95
Winemaker's Notes
Blackcurrant, cassis and violets are noticeable on the bouquet which takes time to unfurl and show its true nuanced beauty. The palate is generous and offers up more cassis, fruitcake and blackcurrants, tinged with deep mocha notes and a hint of violets. Refined and elegant with a layered, structured complexity. Powerful too, with a brooding, dark mid-palate. Beautifully poised, balanced and focused with lovely precision in use of oak, ripeness of fruit and overall cohesion. A soft, silky and seductive wine which lingers long.

Nice rose color with a persistent mousse followed by numerous fine bubbles. On the nose, this wine sports forward red fruit scents combined with citrus fruit aromas.

2014 Hartford Court Far Coast Pinot Noir - $55.95
This comes from a mountain ridge north of Fort Ross at a 1,000-foot elevation. Dense ruby purple, with notes of sassafras, forest floor, red and black cherries, raspberry and underbrush, the wine exhibits medium to full body and terrific texture and length. This is another 10-year Pinot Noir, but should be drinkable during that entire window of opportunity.

2014 Hartford Court Land’s Edge Pinot Noir - $35.95
“Aged in 32% new French oak, the wine displays raspberry and blueberry fruit, damp earth, fresh porcini mushrooms and plenty of minerality. This is a juicy, tightly knit, but concentrated and promising Pinot Noir that has that forward fruit of this vintage well displayed.”
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate – 92 Points

2016 Hartford Old Vine Zinfandel - $32.95
Winemaker Notes
Hartford's Old Vine Zinfandel reflects the character and heritage of dry-farmed and low-yielding vineyards in the Russian River Valley. This blend offers alluring aromas of boysenberry, raspberry and hints of white pepper. Blackberry, nutmeg and mocha flavors lead into an elegant and silky finish.

Sourced from the famous Alexander Valley, this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon presents black currant, coffee and French oak notes of hazelnut on the nose.

2014 Zaca Mesa Z Cuvee - $14.95
Winemaker Notes
This wine is inspired by the wines of the Southern Rhone, where winemakers have been blending these varieties together for centuries to create wines that are greater than the sum of their parts. Our 2014 Z-Cuvee is a complex Rhone-style blend. Grenache adds rich raspberry aromas and flavors; Mourvedre brings notes of blueberry, meat and spice; Cinsault brings a touch of dusty berry.

NV Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve - $30.95
Connoisseurs Guide
Fairly light in most every aspect and leaning in the direction of a Blanc de Blancs, this slender, crisply balanced bottling comes with scattered touches of minerals and chalk but is essentially reserved and restrained. It hits all of the right Champenoise marks without being emphatic in any, and it earns the nod for its refinement and well-polished style.
