Welcome to Herb & Wood

It’s a common enough greeting used by many, but here it’s our way of life. Our ambiance, service, and food are all meant to be unpretentious, elegant, and slightly familiar, but with a mysterious sense of wonderment that makes these walls your own private Secret Garden.

Mirroring our bright and bold, yet delicate, old world-influenced cuisine, our wine list is heavily informed by the classic regions of Europe, with an emphasis on bright acid, freshness, and old world charm. You’ll find the soul of these classics in our new world selections as well, as we try and work with producers that are kindred spirits; whose wines show a finesse and restraint that allow the land from which they grow to shine through in the glass.

That being said, if you want to indulge your vinous hedonistic side, we’ve got you covered and won’t tell another living soul.

Cheers!

Sommelier Selections - White

2009 Bouchard Pere & Fils Chardonnay, Montrachet Grand Cru, Burgundy, France – $196
Much like Sean Connery, Marilyn Streep, and Harrison Ford, not only has this wine improved with a little bit of age, it has hit that magical sweet spot where the untamed zealous verve of youth has balanced with the calm assertive wisdom of age. Unhurried and confident of its place in the universe, it looks at you evenly and says one thing; “I am Montrachet”. It’s still tightly wound, with initial overtures of green apple and gunflint on the opening of the nose, wafting over a base tone of the limestone earth in which it is raised. The palate unfolds with an hourglass-like line, first subtle pillowy oak, broken up by the vineyard’s signature acid, then blooming into tones of warmed apple and orange flower water. There’s an inadequacy of language to this wine; drinking it is more of an experience than a paragraph of tasting notes can supply.

2017 Trabocchetto Pecorino, Colline Pescaresi, Abruzzo, Italy – $54
There is a common refrain in wine that “what grows together, goes together”. Echoing that tried and true rule of thumb, this coastal Italian white ebbs and flows with the briny mineral tones of the sea that cry out for seafood. The flavor curve opens with a burst of tart lemon and Chinese bitter melon, then flat-lines with a thud of beautiful saline earthiness similar to how you’d imagine the scent of a mermaid’s hair. Lean, clean, and crisp, this wine is guaranteed to cool you off like a Mediterranean breeze.

2017 Slacker Wine Company Grenache Blanc/Picpoul, Paso Robles CA- $72
Want to crush a bottle of white wine that has a naughty amount of fruit and seductive mouth feel that beckon your id to move things along and get drinking? If yes, this is your jam! This fleshy, pot-bellied white oozes tones of grilled nectarine, ripe yellow mango, and peaches and cream. While it has the signature heft and roundness of Grenache Blanc that supply the texture, it also has a zippy acidity supplied by the French Picpoul grape to reign in the drinking experience and allow it to pair nicely with pork and chicken-based dishes.

2016 Taille Aux Loups “Clos de la Bretonnaire” Chenin Blanc, Vouvray – $86
Jacky Blot, vigneron behind Domaine Taille Aux Loups makes the exact type of focused, complex, and impeccably balanced wines that we love with our idiosyncratic, vibrant cuisine. Balanced between richness, funk, elegance, and energy, this high-character white wraps tones of bosc pear, hazlenuts, bees wax, quince, and meyer lemon around a skeleton of raw flinty earth. Paired with a compact texture and succulent, mouthwatering acidity, this wine drinks like a criminally affordable white Burgundy with a wild streak.

Sommelier Selections - Red

2016 Raul Perez “Ultreia” Mencia Blend, Bierzo, Spain – $78
Raul Perez, who we affectionately refer to as “Spanish Wine Santa”, makes the type of regionally driven, non-interventionalist wines that shout their identity from a rooftop rather than include a few lines in a slick sales presentation (like this one). Perfumed, focused, and expressive, this wine hits a beautiful resonance between mineral, fruit, and floral tones.

2014 Chateau Lecuyer Merlot, Pomerol, Bordeaux – $98
Our staff tasted a lineup of several Bordeaux, and like a chance encounter with a comely stranger, days later we couldn’t get this wine out of our minds. Produced from a tiny 3 hectare estate, this gem of a wine has the classic Right Bank “iron fist wrapped in a velvet glove” structure, with a silky flavor curve and aromatic profile of lush plum, mocha, and crème de cassis that only comes from top-quality Merlot hitting new French oak. Care to be haunted by your own chance encounter?

2016 Hirsch “San Andreas Fault” Pinot Noir, West Sonoma Coast – $146
Being awarded the opportunity to work with the biodynamically farmed Hirsch Vineyard fruit has been a symbol of having “arrived” for Sonoma county winemakers for over 20 years, with vaunted names like Williams Selyem, Kistler, and Littorai all lining up for as much fruit as they can get. A few winemakers have tried their hand at crafting the wines of the Hirsch family’s own label over the years, and current winemaker Anthony Filiberti has really hit a stylistic sweet spot between an accessible approachability and the gritty, ultra-cool climate austerity that defines the newly-minted West Sonoma Coast appellation. This bottling has a sappy, taut mixed berry fruit tone, with a delicate texture and gently assertive cut that belies the foggy, oceanic influenced hillsides on which is it grown.

2014 Agricola Punica “Barrua” Carignano Blend, Sardegna, Italy – $98
Barrua is the brainchild of Giacomo Tachis, one of the pivotal minds behind the famed Super Tuscans Sassicaia and Tignanello. Seeing the massive potential of the wealth of old vine Carignano grapes on the island of Sardegna, he blended in a pinch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a wine with incredible articulacy, concentration, and depth. This organically farmed, bombastic island red has the lift only typically seen from high elevation Argentinian Malbec, with a vibrant fruit profile as thick as oil paint. Tones of ripe crushed plum, candied violets, new leather, and chocolate covered raisins provide window dressing for a assertive, yet silky tannin profile. This unapologetically decadent wine is like a hairy-chested Russian oligarch, lying on a bearskin rug in a bathrobe next to a roaring fire.
