Buck's wine list
Woodside Vineyards (Santa Cruz Mountains)
The oldest winery in San Mateo County. Suitable tossing in a satchel and drinking on your jet
Even if the winemaker, Jonathan Dreyer, didn’t live two blocks from here we would carry this because our bartender sez itz reli-gud.
Lateral (Napa Valley)
Luscious, complex, approachable, impressive, versatile. A serious Mojo Rising Bordeaux blend even if I am not.
Kendall Jackson (Vintner’s Reserve)
Michael Jackson owns this winery, or maybe it’s Andrew. I’ll have to get back to you.
Mouton Rothschild (France)
1945 This is our best selling wine under $3,000, still only
LE CIGARE VOLANT
Bonny Doon (California)
Reminiscent of a Chateauneuf-Du-Pape. Made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Viognier, Cinsault and Carignane grapes. Ridiculously complicated.
Mario Perelli-Minetti (Sonoma Coast)
The robustus maximus Pinot from the oldest winemaker in America, 101 year old Mario Perelli Minetti.
Stephen Ross (Edna Valley) Mts.)
OK – this one I know. It’s considered suitable for drinking.
Blue Heron Vineyards (Woodside)
Paul and Robin Smith’s memorable pinot is assertive with flippant overtones and an impudent finish. Shake and serve with toast.
Woodsdie Vineyards (Santa Cruz Mts)
Hammer (Santa Cruz Mts.)
Michael Martella is the winemaker at Thomas Fogarty. This is the wine he makes for himself. It’s almost like having a glass with the man himself. Almost.
Ridge Vineyards (their latest release)
An unreasoning wine, almost rude but somehow amusing in its own way. It might slap you around a little.
Not just good but great! In fact, it’s way too cheap, so slip an extra $10 under the office door – grazie.
Salmon Creek (California)
Our house wine, harvested by the light of the moon, tastes nothing like fish.
Woodside Vineyards (Santa Cruz Mts.)
The oldest winery in Woodside. Not only is the wine excellent, but you gotta love the man.
Storrs (Santa Cruz Mts.)
Nutty, buttery, fruit forward.
Kendall Jackson (Vintners' Reserve)
An excellent bottle for hand to hand combat.
Cinnabar (Santa Cruz Mts.)
An old favorite and not even poisonous
La Honda Winery (Santa Cruz Mts.)
Locally crafted by old-world wine makers
Frog's Leap (Napa)
Some krazy frog jumping around on the label.
Murphy-Goode (Northern California)
Good for relaxing poolside.
La Honda Winery (Sonoma)
Good with beer nuts
It used to be called pino but with the ‘t’ added we can charge more.
The best gewurtz available here. Why carry others?
Salmon Creek (California)
Martha Stewart might be kidding about this when she says it goes with Cheezewiz and Ritz crackers.
A wine with a sense of humor; cheap, Costco rotgut, but good
Pedestrian but with excellent shoes.
Domaine Chandon Brut
We can't find a better domestic.
