AVERY QUINN MONTEREY’09………………….…29.99

BALLETTO RUSSIAN RIVER “TERESA’S UNOAKED”’14 – “The first sip shows that this is definitely not what you’d expect of a popular “California Chard.” It’s much leaner and quite lemony, more Chablis style than Californian, with lemon notes running through the palate, followed by pear and peach. Overall, the wine is very light and almost astringent, with citrusy acidity persevering through into the finish. Its acidity makes it a good food wine.”…….29.99

DUCKHORN RUSSIAN RIVER “MIGRATION”14 –Rich and complex, with well-defined peach, pear, tangerine and melon flavors that are enticing and expansive. Oak on the finish nudges this in the direction of cedar and smoke, distracting from the texture. A fun ride overall.”……32.99

EOS PASO ROBLES’06…21.99

ESSER MONTEREY’15 – Bright golden amber color. Fruity, oaky aromas and flavors of ripe yellow apples, planked oak, grilled pineapple, and lemon curd with a slightly chewy, tangy, dry full body and a warming, amusing, brisk finish with woody, firm tannins and moderate oak.”………19.99

FLOWERS SONOMA’14 –Light straw hue. Expressive aromas of citrus zest and lime-blossom are highlighted by honeysuckle and wet flint. The palate is heightened by a compelling, site-specific minerality, textural salinity, and precise acidity that carry brilliantly through the finish. A true expression of both the grape and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean.”……60.99

HAHN SANTA LUCIA “SLH ESTATE”’09 – “Fruity, citrusy and slightly candied, this youngster may lack for a spot of depth, but it hits the mark smartly as a forthright, crisply constructed effort whose slight angularity is the work of its high yet decently balanced acidity.”….26.99

American Cabernet

AMAPOLA CREEK SONOMA “ESTATE”’12  – On the nose, this wine opens with a dusting of cocoa powder, followed by smooth black fruit. Swirl the glass for a moment and the fruit character expands into tart red pie cherries and rich, dark cassis. Give the wine another moment to open up, and you will find just the tiniest hint of white peppercorn mingling with toast. On the palate you will first notice firm acidity, and a delightful character of ripe summer blackberries. Stay with the glass and you will find juicy plum and boysenberry, underscored with subtle notes of candied orange peel and almond liqueur, all laced together with strong, smooth tannins that persist into a lengthy elegant finish.”……….82.99

ANTINORI NAPA “ANTICA”’13  – Elegant and on the more austere side of the variety, this wine is graceful and complex. Tight-grained waves of cherry, cranberry and cassis marry well with its velvety texture and restrained use of oak.”……….76.99

BEHRENS FAMILY NAPA “HOMELAND”’13  – The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Homeland is another blockbuster Cabernet with an inky purple color, sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, licorice, truffle, stunning concentration and a multi-dimensional mouthfeel. This is another tribute to incredible fruit and purity.”……….99.99

CARTLIDGE & BROWNE NORTH COAST’12  –  “With an abundance of fruit flavors reminiscent of blackberries, this cab is plush and soft but not over-the-top.”…….16.99

CASTLE ROCK COLUMBIA VALLEY’11 “Though made in a decidedly Bordeaux mold, this fruity, frisky Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State’s Columbia Valley, offers a plush middle palate of luminous, plummy fruit that adds a welcome touch of New World generosity. Dark ruby red in color, this wine opens with Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated bouquet of cassis, fresh cedar, and red berries. On the palate, notes of light mint, ripe plums, and black cherry are subtly seasoned with notes of vanilla oak, layered over light to moderate tannins.”……18.99

CASTLE ROCK COLUMBIA VALLEY’12…………….17.99

ESSER MONTEREY’13 – Deep garnet color. Aroma: Deep aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and oak spice.

FOLIE A DEUX SONOMA’13…………………………28.99

GAIT  NAPA-STAGE LEAP “RESERVE”’14  – Stags Leap is a Cabernet mecca, a tiny pocket of viticultural heaven that produces wildly flavorful wines. This 2014 bottling from Gait epitomizes that magic in volumes, successfully integrating rich fruit and roasted oak, with hints of conifer and herb. Tender and ripe tannin makes this a treat today, but there are exciting flavors waiting in the wings, yet to be expressed.”……….50.99

GHOST BLOCK NAPA “OAKVILLE”’13  – “The 2013 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the typical distinctive flavors of Ghost Block and the Rock Cairn vineyard.

J. McCLELLAND NAPA’12   Mainly from vineyards within the Oak Knoll District, and blending in 10% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this wine is yeasty and firm in tar, graphite and soy. Leathery on the palate, it sings in blackberry and black cherry around oaky clove.”…………………55.99

KATHERINE GOLSCHMIDT ALEXANDER “CRAZY CREEK”’14  –The Alexander Valley vineyard is a unique plot growing old vine Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2014, another outstanding vintage in Alexander Valley, it brought low-yield Cabernet grapes with intense flavor and ideal balance. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine was aged 18 months in 20% new oak, a combination of French, American and Hungarian. The 2013 received a 94 point rating from the Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge. This 2014 follows with the same character and finesse. It shows ripe Cabernet fruit, with cassis and black cherry nuances and beautifully polished tannins that bring a seamless, supple quality that lingers on the finish. This is a real bargain for single vineyard Alexander Valley Cab.”………25.99

KENDALL JACKSON ALEXANDER “JACKSON ESTATE”’13  – This Cabernet shows mountain intensity in its blackberry, black currant and cassis flavors. It’s bone dry, with thick but refined tannins, and brightened by a fine burst of acidity.”…………………34.99

And, although their 2013 sold out earlier this year, this new vintage is even better.  This wine spends 15 months in high quality oak barrels, and is sourced from several carefully chosen vineyards throughout Napa Valley.  Each specific site adds its own distinctive stamp, contributing to the wine’s absolutely compelling flavors and aromas.”……….121.99

MOUNT VEEDER NAPA’13  – The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, sumptuous and inviting, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Super-ripe dark fruit, pencil shavings, spices, leather, savory herbs and menthol power through to the huge finish, where a blast of intense fruit and tannin awaits. Dollops of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah round out the blend.”……….65.99

ROUTESTOCK NAPA “ROUTE 29”’12  –  “The folks at RouteStock have taken advantage of the stellar 2012 vintage, crafting a fine Cabernet from vineyards in Oak Knoll, Rutherford and other Napa Valley appellations. Flavors are full, rich and very accessible, presenting the warm character of the vintage. Look for dark flavors of black and blue berries, cocoa, toast and subtle vanilla spice tones. A great value in Napa Cabernet.”…………..27.99

SILVER OAK NAPA’11  – This new vintage of Silver Oak’s flagship “Napa” bottling is a bold, full bodied Cabernet blend guaranteed to thrill devotees of Napa’s most iconic red wine.

This wine exhibits a nice, healthy, dark ruby/purple color, a sweet nose of black cherries and blackcurrants and Margaux-like finesse in a medium-bodied, supple and seductive style.”………108.99

TREFETHEN NAPA’13 –The 2013 Trefethen Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the brightest stars from one of the Napa Valley’s best vintages in recent years.

VINE CLIFF CALIFORNIA “ROCK BLOCK”’08–Opaque garnet color. Delicate, toasty aromas of chocolate nut fudge, dried berries, and light brown spices with a oily, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a warming, medium-long cassis pie, cedar, hazelnut nutskin, and minerals finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak.

Spending 26 months in 50% new French oak, it offers up a ripe, rich array of plum sauce, black olive, kirsch, cedar and gravel to go with a soft, supple and beautifully fruited palate.

JEFF COHN PASO ROBLES “DUSI VINEYARD”’13  – A classic Zinfandel that’s loaded with notions of spice box, cigar box, sweet cherries, crushed flowers and black currants, the 2013 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard has fabulous complexity in its evolved, sexy and medium to full-bodied personality.

CALERA CENTRAL COAST’14 – “Relatively light in the glass, this blend of nine vineyards from up and down the coast shows savory baked plum, cardamom dust, earthy cranberry, bay leaf and smoked meat on the nose. It’s medium bodied on the palate and very down-the-middle flavor-wise, with cranberry, oregano and thyme elements.”…..41.99

CASTLE ROCK CALIFORNIA “CUVEE”’13…………17.99

DOMAINE EDEN SANTA CRUZ’13 – “While this wine’s Mount Eden sister bottling may better stand the test of time, the Domaine Eden is what most people will most like to drink right now, and it’s cheaper too. Aromas of dried violets, uncrushed boysenberries and pencil lead make for an ethereal nose that seems to hold secrets one must uncover. Precise tannins on the palate offer floral yet savory flavors of black sesame, nori, violet and mulberry. It’s mellow yet mysterious.”…..47.99

DUCKHORN “GOLDEN EYE” NAPA’13 – “Offers a healthy dose of smoky, toasty oak notes, which impart flavor, aromatics and texture, adding to the mix of plum and cherry fruit flavors that for now remain submerged.”…..65.99

ESSER MONTEREY’14 – Dark garnet color. Lively, roasted aromas and flavors of dark roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, and dried cherries with a silky, bright, body and a silky, interesting, relaxed beet, sweet potato, and cedar bark finish with crunchy, fine tannins and moderate oak. A smooth, flavorful and engaging pinot with nice oak.”………22.99

FORMATION MONTEREY’14 – “Smashed wild red berries and redcurrants are pumped up with a strong oak smoke and struck-match character that is alluring though distracting. Tart cherry and cranberry fruit show along with hibiscus and sandalwood on the light, woody palate that also offers some juniper.”…..21.99

FRANK FAMILY CARNEROS’13 – “Orange and cranberry take center stage, while savory cinnamon and cardamom dance in the background, shimmering around full-bodied tannin and oak. Mildly exotic, there’s an intensity to this wine, that ends in fig compote.”…..50.99

KENDALL JACKSON ANDERSON  “JACKSON ESTATE”’14 – First, I must confess – the Anderson Valley appellation on the western end of Mendocino County has always impressed me with the quality of the Pinot Noir juice being produced there. That being said, this is a lovely rendition of the grape that anyone will appreciate and love. Lightly opaque, it has a glowing plum purple color. Distinct cherry cola aromas arise from the glass, followed by blueberry and high notes of sandalwood and cedar. In the mouth, the blueberry flavors dominate, picking up a tart edge. Varietal sleekness and silkiness carries through to the juicy finish. Impressive now in its youth, it should continue to provide pleasure.”…………………23.99

MACROSTIE SONOMA’11 – Presents a mix of loamy earth, dark berry, black licorice and tea notes, framed by chewy tannins that lead to a chewy finish.”…….40.99

MELVILLE  “ESTATE” SANTA RITA HILLS’12 – “Crushed red berries, mint, flowers and cinnamon lift from the glass in the 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Sta. Rita Hills. This is one of the most polished, refined and aromatically expressive wines I have tasted from Melville. What a gorgeous, radian and totally sexy wine this is.”…………….45.99

MIRASSOU CALIFORNIA’12  –  “In the glass the wine appears garnet in color.  Fairly dark for a Pinot Noir, however light does shine through.  Leggy on the sides of the glass.  The drips moved slowly, hinting at a heavier Pinot Noir.  On the nose, Mirassou Pinot Noir gives forth aromas of earthiness.  Also noted was a slight whiff of alcohol alongside a pleasant ripe rasberry aroma.  On the palate, this wine delivers delicious fruits of raspberry and plum.  The slightest bit of dryness accompanies a dark flavor of cherry, vanilla and oak.”…….13.99

NINER WINE EDNA VALLEY’12 “Niner’s Paso Robles Bordeaux-style reds have attracted attention. Now the winery turns to Pinot Noir, but they wisely turn to the cooler Edna Valley. The resulting wine is dry, silky and crisp in acidity, with pleasant raspberry and sandalwood flavors.”…………………………33.99

PONZI WILLAMETTE “TAVOLA”’15 – “Who puts their lowest-priced Pinot Noir in 20% new French oak, and includes fruit from their best vineyards in the blend? Ponzi does, and the result is a terrific vintage for Tavola. Bright, compact, aromatic and lushly fruited with plum and black cherry, this is a stunning value. Cola, caramel and cinnamon spice add further details and highlights.”…..36.99

RED CAR SONOMA COAST’13 – This wine draws from a handful of tremendous vineyard sites, including the producer’s estate, Platt and Clary Ranch, all cool-climate and windswept. It’s a tight, light and minimally messed-with wine, bright in cherry, pomegranate and rose.”………57.99

Cherry, strawberry, pink rose, sandalwood, pink and white peppercorn and toasted grain fan-out in focused elegance on the palate, where the texture is supple and the zest soft-edged.”…..28.99

DAOU PASO ROBLES “THE PESSIMIST” RED BLEND’13 – “A blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache, has a bit of a rubber/tar like quality to the sweet berry fruit on the nose, black licorice spice, dark chocolate. Black spice, licorice and dark earth notes to the blackberry and black plum like fruit on the tongue.

And with his years as Chief Winemaker at Simi Vineyards in Sonoma, he knows Alexander Valley like few others. He rates the Crazy Creek Estate where the grapes for this wine are sourced, as one of the top five sites in the region. An amazing value this Meritage-style blend of 82% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petite Verdot, aged 16 months in 15% new French Oak is lush and distinctive with supple cherry, berry and dark chocolate flavors. And this 2014, a drought year vintage that brought intensely flavored, concentrated fruit, has the density and structure to reward short-term aging. A true gift to California wine lovers from Nick Goldschmidt. It’s a wine that could easily cost two to three times its modest price.”………23.99

ONE TIME SPACEMAN “MOON DUCK”  PROPRIETARY RED PASO ROBLES’09 – “This wine is a complex, fruit forward GSM Rhone blend crafted in the style that has made Paso Robles famous. Aged in both new and neutral French oak this wine is out of this world. The color of this wine is reminiscent of a Red Giant Star in its last phase. On the nose it shows explosive Astro Berry, Plasma Spice and Cosmic Flower. On the palate the bright arrogant fruit is held together perfectly by complex Interstellar Dust and a rich Nebula Core. One Time Spaceman wines are unique, dramatic and boutique blends from some of the best sites in Paso Robles.”…39.99

PALAZZO NAPA CABERNET FRANC13 –Another of the profound Cabernet Francs from Scott Palazzo, and to me, one of the two best he has made to date (the other being the 2007) is the 2013 Cabernet Franc. When I tasted it, it had only been in bottle about five weeks, but it was locked and loaded. Dense purple, with notes of forest floor, incense, violets, black cherries and black raspberries, some foresty notes are also present. The wine is full-bodied, opulent, with great acidity, vigor and delineation.”…….134.99

PARIS VALLEY ROAD CALIFORNIA RED BLEND13 –Dark garnet color.

The Zinfandel plantings date from the 1880s and were better known as the source for Biale’s Old Crane Zinfandel. This wine displays spicy, peppery steak tartare, roast Provençal herbs, and briary black cherry and blackberry fruit. It has terrific body, length, richness and viscosity.

PRISONER WINE COMPANY NAPA “THE PRISONER” RED BLEND15- “I love what he’s done with The Prisoner, a blend of  Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Syrah, Petite Sirah, Charbono, and Grenache. This is a big, sexy, fruit bomb boasting abundant amounts of black, blue, and red fruits along with pepper, spice box, earth, and herbs.

LIMERICK LANE RUSSIAN RIVER  SYRAH-GRENACH BLEND11 – “A blend of 63% Syrah and 37% Grenache (the latter from 40-year-old head-pruned vines), the 2011 Syrah/Grenache is Sonoma’s version of a French Chateauneuf du Pape. It was aged in neutral oak and achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. Abundant notes of lavender, roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, black currants, bouquet garni and roasted meat jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/plum-colored wine. Full-bodied, rich, textured and long, it should drink well for 5-6 years. Sadly, there are fewer than 400 cases of this beauty.”…………….76.99

PLUMPJACK NAPA’13 – The 2013 Syrah is incredibly primary today, with huge blue/purplish fruit and tons of intensity. Like so many 2013’s, the Syrah tastes like a wine that was just drained from tank, the flavors are every bit that intense and unevolved. This is quite possibly the most raw of Plumpjack’s 2013, but the wine’s pure power simply won’t be denied.”…………….83.99

CALLEJON DEL CRIMEN VALLE DU UCO “GRAN RESERVE” PETITE VERDOT’08  – “The 2008 Callejon del Crimen Petit Verdot Gran Reserva is the most dense and full-bodied of these wines. Powerful, structured, and packed with savory black fruits, it will require extended cellaring to reveal its full potential. It seems to have all the right stuff, so for those who think bigger is better, this is the wine for you.”……….…32.99

DONA PAULA MENDOZA  “LOS CARDOSMALBEC15 – “On the nose: Many pungent notes jump out of the glass, but predominantly black fruit character with crushed black cherries, bramble, warm blueberry pie, spices, licorice, pepper and hints of coffee grounds, mocha and dark chocolate over soft minerals.  On the palate: This wine makes an entrance with a massive concentration of black peppered fruit, cherry crush, sloe fruit and loads of licorice-laden berries. The acidity is striking. It creates a great melange with the fruit and the tannins through the midpalate, thereby giving the wine a powerful backbone and a good sense of balance.  It carries through to the finish that lingers for a good 20-plus seconds with hints of toast, coffee and anise.”………14.99

MENDOZA VINEYARDS MENDOZA “RICHARD BONVIN GRAND RESERVE”’11  –  “The 2011 Malbec Grand Reserve, aged for 20 months in new Nadalie barrels, smells of leather, forest floor, dill and paprika over a core of cherries in liqueur not unlike some traditional Riojas (from Spain, not from Argentina). The palate is medium-bodied, with some grippy tannins, good acidity and length. This wine calls for food. Drink 2014-2018. I was very impressed with this set of wines produced by a company that owns no vineyards, but sources grapes from selected locations in Mendoza.”…….33.99

PURAMUN MENDOZA “RESERVA” MALBEC’13 – “Displays the signature elegance and balance of a Pepe Galante wine. The rich and flirty fruit aromas of this supple red are absolutely alluring. Full-bodied and luscious with a hint of spice and soft tannins, this wine has finesse and grace. Robust and lively, the superb quality of those hand-harvested Valle de Uco grapes is evident in every sip. A beautiful wine that deftly showcases Pepe’s talent and passion, Puramun Reserva Malbec 2013 is a stunning achievement and absolutely delicious. Bravo to Pepe and the Galante family.”…..43.99

SANTA JULIA MENDOZA “PLUS” MALBEC’11 –  “A fruitball of a Malbec, with bright, friendly aromas of berry, cola and cherry cough drop. It feels full, round and well balanced, with a black cherry flavor bearing a mild herbal underbelly. The finish is fruity without being heavy.”…….16.99

VERAMONTE MAIPO “PRIMUS” CABERNET SAUVIGNON’13  The 2013 Primus Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from 30-year-old vines in Puente Alto in Maipo, the classical zone for Cabernet Sauvignon in Chile. This is the only wine they produce from purchased grapes, in this case from a producer called Mariscal who has 30-year-old vines on the alluvial terrace of the Maipo River. This is fermented in open-top tanks with indigenous yeasts. They want softer and more drinkable wines in the Primus series than what the line used to be in the past. This has all the classical descriptors of Maipo Cabernet, but in a subtle way, none of the aromas sing in a higher voice and there is good balance and harmony. The palate is medium-bodied, with very good balance, drinkable and approachable.”………………..22.99

VINA ALMAVINA CHILE “PUENTE ALTO”’00 – CELLAR AGED SELECTION – “The currant, cedar, mineral and cocoa flavors smolder underneath the fleshy, enveloping mouthfeel, with a wall of ripe, finely grained tannins taking over on the smoky finish. Not quite as dense as top vintages, but still clearly outstanding. Cabernet Sauvignon with Carmenère”…….99.99

SHATTER ROUSSILLON GRENACHE’10  – “Dark, clear garnet with purple hue. Nose of licorice, blackberry, menthol, and dust. Ripe palate of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, pepper, and minerals. Very good length. Pleasant acidity. Youthful tannins. Interesting, intense, high alcohol wine (15% on the label). 100% Grenache.”……….28.99

SHATTER ROUSSILLON GRENACHE’13  – A collaboration between Napa’s Joel Gott and Dave Phinney, the semi-opaque Cotes Catalanes Grenache is a smoking blend of 100% Grenache that comes from the singular, black schist soils located around the village of Maury, in the Agly Valley in the Roussillon. Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of vanilla bean all flow nicely to a seamless, silky, yet decadently styled red that has fine tannin, and a blockbuster, heady finish. It will certainly not appease those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but count me a fan.”………..29.99

RUINART BRUT ROSE’NV –There’s lovely precision to the integration of this elegant rosé, offering a fine backbone of acidity and a light mousse. The flavors of poached pear, black cherry, fleur de sel, lemon zest and ginger are finely meshed, with a subtle vein of smoky minerality.”……….99.99

VEUVE CLICUOT ROSE BRUT’NV  Has the same apparent composition as the NV Yellow Label of 50-52% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 18-20% pinot meunier; but here there is 12% pinot noir table wine included in the total pinot component. Demarville says it is the most difficult wine to make; the red wine tannins must be managed so that the creamy mouthfeel is maintained without denying the strawberry-accented fruit flavours their distinct point of difference.”………..79.99
