Designed for wine lovers seeking elegant, collector-worthy wines that are accessibly priced, Eric Jensen created Harvey & Harriet as a homage to his parents, who could never afford most of the top-level Cabernet blends today. He diligently creates this wine from premier sites in Paso Robles, blending it to showcase the depth, intensity, charisma, and character expected from much higher-end wines. With mid-90s scores, this is, as Jeb Dunnuck writes, a “polished, elegant beauty,” and at $32, you can’t go wrong with a case.

Gaining experience from neighbors Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure, and friend Justin Smith of Saxum, Eric Jensen’s wines make a powerful statement of quality, value and do so without pretension.

Eric thoughtfully crafts Harvey and Harriet in a rich, showy style by blending 40% Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. This unique blend walks a tightrope of elegance and intensity, delivering a high level of enjoyment at a realistic price.

Created in a collaborative spirit that calls on the best, sustainably farmed fruit from a collection of neighboring vineyards, Eric Jensen of My Favorite Neighbor believes it takes a village to make great wine. His circle includes favorite neighbor Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure, and friend Justin Smith of Saxum, whom Eric spent five vintages with, gleaning top-level winemaking. This wine gives Paso Robles an unmistakable voice, powerful enough to be heard in Napa.  A $50, 96 Point Cabernet from anywhere is a dominating force.

Guided by inspiration, Eric interferes as little as possible during the winemaking process, resulting in elegantly balanced wines with a salient sense of place.

Impeccably farmed, Eric’s 100-acre certified organic estate vineyard on Paso’s Westside produces noble quality fruit. The 2018 blend includes 77% Cabernet Sauvignon accented with Bordeaux and Rhone varieties, aged 18 months in oak.

Have you ever wondered what goes into California’s most iconic Pinot Noir? It all starts in the fields with ridiculously high-quality grapes sourced from some of California’s best vineyards, but it’s what happens next that makes them a model of quality and consistency every vintage.  The winery follows a strict minimal interference approach to their winemaking with absolutely no pumping, no filtering or any other process that can potentially unsettle or compromise quality.  From there, it’s about the smallest details, like the old-world method of foot treading the grapes (in clean waders) that leads to the naturally regal quality that you can taste in their wines.  The winery excelled in 2017 with exceptional levels of seductive fruits, supreme complexity and stunning balance.  Their Eastside Road Neighbors is one of my all time favorites, and at under $100, the level of quality leaves me at a loss for words…

Forged from iconic vineyards, the 2017 offers an equilibrium of intense red fruits, fine details and stunning balance.  The winery made history when Wine Enthusiast awarded their Litton Estate Pinot a perfect 100 Point score, which was the first Pinot in North America to earn 100 points from any major wine publication. If you want to experience a prime example of domestically produced Pinot Noir, here’s a terrific opportunity.

Vieilles Vignes means old vines, and Guy Robin is one of my favorite producers of old vine Chablis. He began collecting old Chablis parcels back in the 60s, and few other Chablis estates have such a rich collection of older vines. As a result, few wineries can deliver Chablis wines of such character and complexity. At $36, his Chablis VV offers dynamic complexity, laser focus, and optimum balance.

Guy’s daughter Marie-Ange leads the Estate and shares her father’s passion for old vines. She creates their Vieilles Vignes Chablis from vines averaging four decades in age, and many of the neighboring plots are premier cru sites, sharing similar soils and climate.

Guy Robin hand-harvests their Chardonnay grapes at the pinnacle of ripeness. He immediately presses them at the winery, where they’re held in a tank for 24 hours to settle naturally. The winery ferments in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, and they also age in tanks to preserve the fruit’s most natural expression.
