CHARLES WOODSON NAPA “TWENTY FOUR”’12 – “Smooth Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with tropical flavors and creamy vanilla notes.”….49.99

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.”…………39.99


DECOY SONOMA’13 This faint white gold colored Sauvignon Blanc is a crowd pleasing wine. It opens with a pleasant mild apple bouquet with a hint of grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and round. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe pear with hints of pineapple, tangerine, and green apple. There is also just a touch of minerality as well. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely.”………….39.99

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.”…………..35.99


GHOST BLOCK YOUNTVILLE “LEE VINEYARD”’13  –  This 2013 Sauvignon Blanc has a brilliant light straw color. Aromas of ripe stone fruit and honeydew melon. The juicy, yet elegant palate shows overtones of yellow peaches with a firm citrus backbone, then some very subtle and expanding hints of clove and vanilla.”……..59.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST’14 –“ The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards throughout the Paso Robles AVA. The 2014 vintage benefited from a climate that was warm and dry, perfect conditions for sauvignon blanc in the Central Coast.  The wine is whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation to retain fresh fruit aromas and flavors. This light golden yellow-colored wine pulls you into the glass with fresh aromas of grapefruit, peach, and green apple, along with a subtle note of grassiness—the signature of sauvignon blanc. On entry, crisp flavors of lemon, green apple, dried herbs, vanilla, and candy corn lead to a finish that’s clean and slightly tart, with palate-cleansing acidity.”…..…35.99

JUSTIN CENTRAL COAST’15  “Vivid and tangy, with mouthwatering acidity and saline notes accompanying the lemon, lime and green apple flavors. Extremely refreshing.”……32.99

MERRY EDWARDS RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY’14 – “Succulent, lush and rich, with fleshy mango, melon and peach flavors up front, leading to a core of pineapple, lemon and honeysuckle notes. The smoky edge and nervy acidity weave in and out, giving this a fresh finish.”………………89.99


PLUMPJACK NAPA “CADE”’13 – “Very pale green-tinged yellow. Aromas of pear, banana and lemongrass are lifted by a floral perfume. Supple, creamy and dry, with slightly candied flavors of mango, honeydew and green apple. A bit warm on the end but given shape by lemon-limey acidity. Two thousand thirteen brought a bumper crop for this wine, according to winemaker Danielle Cyrot, with 7,000 cases produced. The Brix levels soared after two days of 100-degree weather over the Labor Day weekend, she noted.”.……… 69.99
