Smart Bottles (Buy Wine)

When I was a young lad living temporarily in London, I watched my dad stand in line at a shop in South Kensington to buy a bottle of champagne. As we stood there, a lovely young woman walked by and said in a very proper accent, “ooh, that’s a smart bottle.” I filed that tidbit away, vowing to use it myself one day. At Storyteller, “smart bottles” are primarily wines that we keep in stock at all times.

Any time you drop you can count on finding some interesting, very nicely priced bottles to take home with you. Or they might be wines that were offered as “one time” only prices by local distributors/importers. Or they may just be as scarce as they are good and you’d be smart to buy them while you can.

If any of these bottles appeal to you just email or call us toll free and tell us how many you would like. We’ll get back to you ASAP in order to collect your shipping and credit card information. Or you can always drop by the store.

2012 Anthill Farms Campbell Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir 46.00


2012 Anthill Farms Tina Marie Vineyard Pinot Noir 46.00


2012 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 34.00


2011 Broc Cellars Roussanne 25.00


2012 Broc Cellars “Carbonic” Carignan 22.00


2012 Forlorn Hope “Que Saudade” Verdelho 25.00

Flipping brilliant white wine. Sea breeze salinity, lemon sorbet, German chamomile and chalk. If Fast Eddie Felson drank wine he'd chalk up his cue with the Que Saudade.

2010 Forlorn Hope “Nacre” Semillon 25.00

Rocks and rinds! Great minerality and all sorts of citrus peel fruit flavor. The talc and Wrigley's chewing gum powder nose reminds me of some of my favorite examples of Semillon from Australia. If I drew pictures for tasting notes I'd show a Nautilus shell and a grapefruit. Nice 11% alcohol reading as well!

2012 Jos. Christoffel Jr. Riesling Auslese*** Urziger Wurzgarten Gold Capsule 54.00


2012 Jos. Christoffel Jr. Riesling Auslese*** Erdener Pralat Gold Capsule 54.00


2012 Lauer “Barrel X” Saar Riesling 16.00


2012 Keller Riesling “von der Fels” Trocken 34.00

Stunning in 2012. As John Gilman (View from the Cellar) observed: "John Gilman: "The 2012 von der Fels bottling has been boosted with two barrels of Abtserde and one barrel of Morstein Riesling from a parcel of thirty year-old vines, and this is clearly the finest vintage I have yet tasted of this superb cuvée. The brilliant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of tangerine, sweet grapefruit, a nice touch of wild yeasts, kaleidoscopic minerality, lemongrass,incipient notes of petrol and a touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and youthfully complex, with Grosses Gewächs depth in the mid-palate this year, great focus and grip and a very, very long, still quite young and racy finish. This is an absolutely stunning wine in 2012 and clearly shows that the fireworks at Weingut Keller start way below the level of the GG’s this year!"

2012 Kelley Fox Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 59.00


2011 Keller Bürgel Spätburgunder 89.00

Klaus-Peter Keller has fashioned a Pinot Noir that has an opportunity to age gracefully for another two decades. Magnificent stuff!

2012 Day Crowley Station Vineyard Pinot Noir 25.00

Brianne Day's first vintage of wine under her own label. Outrageously good pinot for a modest tariff.

2011 Cameron Abbey Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 59.00

The 2011 is so floral and pretty, with a nice dose of violets to go along with all those tart red cherries. You could just buy a bottle or two but why? Especially when a six-pack is 320.00 and a case of 12 bottles is 576.00?

2011 Cameron Abbey Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay 59.00

You could just buy a bottle or two but why? Especially when a six-pack is 320.00 and a case of 12 bottles is 576.00?

2011 Cameron Clos Electrique Blanc 59.00

You could just buy a bottle or two but why? Especially when a six-pack is 320.00 and a case of 12 bottles is 576.00? The 2011 vintage of this wine is superb.

2011 Cameron Clos Electrique Rouge 59.00

You could just buy a bottle or two but why? Especially when a six-pack is 320.00 and a case of 12 bottles is 576.00?

1993 The Eyrie Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 129.00
