BENZINGER NORTH COAST’17……..32.99

CAPTURE WINES SONOMA-LAKE COUNTY “TRADITION”14  – “Shows nutty overtones to the orange zest—scented citrus and melon flavors, lending this an air of spice and richness. Offers some marmalade notes on the juicy finish.”…………60.99

CASTLE ROCK MENDOCINO’13 This white shows good concentration to its melon, peach and apple flavors, with a smooth body and a dose of acidity on the finish, where a lemon thyme detail chimes in.”…..32.99

CASTLE ROCK MENDOCINO’15  –  “An attractive floral, appley aroma and generous, ripe apple and herb flavors give this medium-bodied wine plenty of personality.”…….32.99

CHARLES WOODSON NAPA “TWENTY FOUR”14 – “The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was aged and fermented in mostly stainless steel. As Rick says this wine was crushed, fermented, aged and bottled – with a more hands off approach to wine making. It is floral on the bouquet with citrus blossom and dessert spices. It is a balanced clean wine – notes of a lemon lime zest linger delicately.”…………42.99

CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE COLUMBIA VALLEY “HORSE HEAVEN”’16 – “Light aromas of herb, grass, papaya and kiwi lead to tart, spritely tropical-fruit flavors heightened by grapefruit accents. There’s no mistaking the variety and it’s appealing, with a drawn-out finish.”………32.99

CLOS PEGASE NAPA “MITSUKO’S VINEYARD”’16  – A wealth of ripe sauvignon blanc character yet this remains fresh with grapefruit, gooseberries, blackberry leaf and lime zest. Nice weight on the palate, which is well rounded but carried through by some pretty acidity.”…….38.99

DUCKHORN NAPA  SAUVIGNON BLANC’14 (HALF BOTTLE)  – “ Fleshy fig and creamy, rounded layers of vanilla provide a complete experience marked by zesty, mellowed acidity. Then a long finish of lemon peel and melon takes over and persists nicely on the palate.”…….30.99

FERRARI-CARANO SONOMA COAST’12  – Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc has a rich yellow tone and a medium body. There are all sorts of fruit going on here. Initially, you get some citrus and a little pear. From there, it all goes crazy. There is grapefruit. There is lime. There might even be more than that. At the end, you will notice just a hint of oak to round things out.”…………..38.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST ’16 – “Sharp lime skin aromas are warmed by Gala apple and wet river stone scents on the nose of this bottling, which blends fruit from warmer eastern vineyards and cooler western ones. It’s light in structure and easy to quaff, with searing acidity that carries into the finish. A stony texture frames its honeydew and grapefruit flavors.”…….37.99

MATANZAS CREEK SONOMA’11 – “Light yellow. Pungent lemon/lime and green apple aromas show good energy and focus. Taut, focused and refreshingly tangy on the palate, offering bright citrus fruit flavors and a hint of bitter quinine. Closes dry and tight, with good clarity and length.”….42.99

MERRY EDWARDS SONOMA – RUSSIAN RIVER’17 – “Peach cobbler, ripe melon and marmalade notes are elegant, supple and detailed in this white, with spice and black tea accents. A refreshing thread of acidity keeps the flavors fresh without interfering with the elegance.”……99.99
