    ($35; this represents the heavy press wine from the same verdelho grapes that went into the Naucratis; made in an oxidative style, with no topping of the barrels; partial malolactic fermentation) Pale yellow-gold. Fascinating leesy aromas of tangerine, orange, white peach and flowers. Rich but juicy, with an almost glyceral texture but surprising energy to its flavor of apricot, especially considering its pH of 3.85. This downright idiosyncratic wine offers an uncanny combination of freshness and weight, and finishes with excellent length.

  • The Scholium Project, made by Abe Schoener, pushes the envelope of expectation in wines, producing esoteric varieties from somewhat obscure vineyards througout northern California. Schoener, who completed his graduate work in Ancient Greek Philosophy, concentrated on Homer. His label's name translates to "school, schooling" from Greek, and signifies an undertaking for the sake of learning, paralleling his winemaking journey. Schoener took a sabbatical from teaching in 1998 to work as an intern at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley before moving on to work in the cellars of Luna. He then began the Scholium Project in 2004, entitling wines using proprietary names rather than varieties. In the cellar, Schoener allows his wines to take their own natural course by leaving them undisturbed in the barrel, not sulfuring or topping off - instead he allows the fermentation to develop a ripeness particular to wine, not fruit. Scholium Project wines are extremely limited in production.
