A rolling stone gathers no moss.—Roman proverbEver the trendsetting, rule-breaking center of change, California’s impact on American wine and drinking culture continues to dominate. Today, hallmark varieties like Chardonnay, Cabernet and Pinot Noir still fill the majority of our glasses, but the Golden State also succeeds with newer offerings from Barbera to Roussanne, revealing the true diversity of its winemaking prowess and terroir.Even within its traditional categories, California has refused to slow its steady onward march, releasing contemporary styles and unique interpretations that change our perception of what the state’s wine is. Think you know what modern California wine is all about? We argue that new and exciting bottlings from all corners of the state may surprise you.Our June issue takes a deep dive in to the people, places and…

SHINY NEW GOLDEN STATECali Cab and Chardonnay are holding strong in the spotlight, but winemakers continue to innovate and experiment with different grapes. Here are seven other varieties that should be on your radar.CABERNET FRANCCab Franc has never played a starring role in California. That’s too bad, as it can be beautiful in the right hands. There are rumblings of increased interest and attention to it, though. With nearly 1,200 acres planted, Napa is leading the charge. There, it’s often blended into Cabernet Sauvignon to produce violet aromatics and Old World herbaceousness. Look for varietal bottlings with coffee and chocolate balanced by fruit from die-hard Cabernet Franc aficionados Lang & Reed, Crocker & Starr, La Jota, Chappellet, Ashes & Diamonds and Corison. —V.B.ROUSSANNEControversy over vines labeled incorrectly undercut the rise…

Today’s incarnation has evolved from its basic bottle shop days on Westwood Boulevard into a two-location, wine bar/restaurant/gourmet grocery, which co-owner Christian Navarro calls “experiential retail.” The Beverly Hills outpost offers more than 100…
