Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Product #29234 (In Stock)
Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2012 is how many top-notch "little" wines get made.  Here you'll find generous aromas of cherry, cranberry and mint leading to flavors of maraschino cherry, plum, and red berry with just a hint of spice and orange blossom. The light, fresh, texture, soft tannins, and juicy acids make this a delicious quaffer, although there's enough support for it to work with salmon or pork.  Outstanding value in balanced, easygoing, Pinot Noir.

Egret Chardonnay California 2011 Egret Chardonnay California 2011

Here's a versatile and delicious California Chardonnay built to satisfy a crowd - and you!  Ripe, creamy, and fresh, the aromas and flavors feature juicy apple, pineapple, peach, citrus, and salty caramel. Mostly made in stainless steel for brightness and fruit, the 15% aged in oak delivers just a hint of smoke to complement the buttery notes on the back.  Lots of lees stirring gives it a creamy, round, mouthfeel and the juicy apple and sweet butter caramel flavors linger nicely on the fresh finish. A fine party or everyday Chardonnay and outstanding value.

Leese-fitch Merlot 2012 Product #28356 (In Stock)
Leese-fitch Merlot 2012 Leese-fitch Merlot 2012

"With brambly purple color, the vanilla notes burst from the glass. Then the aroma turns towards strawberry jam, plum, and crushed cardamom. The mouth fills with flavors of ripe black raspberry, sweetened cranberry cocktail, fresh summer cherries, toasted almond, and summer plums. The finish has layers of vanilla bean from a combination of French and American oak with a touch of complexity from notes of Brazil nut and sweet raspberry cordial. The acidity keeps the wine bright while the fruit flavors bounce between sweet and tart." Winery Notes

X Winery Big Gun Red 2012 Product #28621 (In Stock)
X Winery Big Gun Red 2012 X Winery Big Gun Red 2012

The customer favorite X Red is no more, but this is a terrific replacement – and could just become your go-to party/house red.  A wacky blend of California Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Grenache that packs a big flavor punch. It's a boldly flavored red that's loaded with candied strawberry and red cherry fruit, a lash of baking spice, and a juicy, tangy, finish.  Great wine for anything grilled or just to enjoy at a party.

A value line from Napa winery Joseph Carr, the 2013 Josh Cellars Chardonnay delivers plenty of bang for the buck. A blend of tank and barrel fermented fruit, you'll find lush peach, pear, citrus and tropical fruit in a creamy-textured wine supported by just enough citrusy acidity.  The wood is nicely balanced here, giving a touch of vanilla and smoke for complexity and depth.  Fine to sip, excellent with food.

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2014 Product #29574 (In Stock)

This has been one of Robert Parker's favorite "value" Pinot Noirs over the past few years; as he said of the 2013, "Readers looking for an authentic tasting Pinot Noir that sells for a song should check out Block 9. Aromas of sweet red and black cherry fruit intermixed with clove and baking spices are offered in a medium-bodied, earthy, soft, silky style. This amazing Pinot Noir sells for a price that is virtually unheard of for this varietal." Fun stuff.

Butter Chardonnay California 2014 Product #29533 (In Stock)
Butter Chardonnay California 2014 Butter Chardonnay California 2014

Yes, Butter is back – and it’s the best Butter yet!  Former Rombauer winemaker Rob Lloyd and his partners a JaM wines have turned out another full-throttle, frankly oaked, and richly butter Chardonnay in the outstanding 2014 vintage.  As always, you’ll find big aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, spicy oak, vanilla and creamy butter.  And, the big flavors of super-ripe tropical and orchard fruits, smoke, spice, vanilla bean and still more fresh butter coat your palate with a richly textured, smooth, opulent texture.  What’s new is a touch more vibrant acidity from front to back and a newfound sense of delineation and clarity to the flavors.  More of a “baby Rombauer” than ever! 

It’s a fun, butterball, of a sipper and party wine, and will be a happy partner with everything from fish to poultry and salads at table.  But, this has sold our early in each of the past 4 vintages, so now’s the time to grab a full year’s supply!

Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012 Product #28495 (In Stock)
Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012 Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012

We loved Michael Pozzan's 2007 Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros, but haven't been as enthused by subsequent releases - until now!  In what will go down as a great Pinot Noir vintage, this roars back into form with loads of black berry and dark strawberry fruit framed in rich, earthy, spice.  The texture is pure Carneros - nicely plush, but not heavy or over the top - and there's just enough oak for interest and clove spice without drying out the lush fruit.  A winning Pinot value.

Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Product #28497 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013

An excellent Russian River Chardonnay at a very attractive price. The aromas and flavors feature creamy pineapple, crisp pear, and fresh apple with a light touch of buttered popcorn and vanilla from oak aging.  Fine balance here in a fairly elegant California Chardonnay with a creamy, soft, mid-palate texture. Pineapple, passion fruit, buttered toast, and green apple flavors linger nicely on the bright, clean, finish. Rock-solid.

"Golden color and tight, bright acidity characterize this wine that tingles in balanced flavors of pear and lemon. It also offers a touch of orange blossom on the nose and caramel on the finish."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012 Product #28702 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012

As Robert Parker has often said about Foxglove Chardonnay, "These are among the finest values readers will find anywhere in the world." In the outstanding 2012 vintage, this is once again a no-oak, no-malo, Chardonnay from Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. Generous flavors of honeysuckle, lemon, pear, and yellow apple swirl through a richly textured wine that snaps into focus on the bright, crisp, finish.  Delicious stuff and fine, fine, value.

"The 2012 Chardonnay Foxglove is my favorite of the bunch and gives up clean and classy white peach, apple blossom and subtle spice in its medium-bodied, juicy and delicious style. Brought up in stainless steel, it’s hard to beat at the price and should be purchased by the case for drinking over the coming year or so."Wine Advocate 89 points

Jackhammer Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012 Product #29212 (In Stock)
Jackhammer Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012 Jackhammer Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012

Yes, the label and name lack a little Burgundian class.  But this is seriously delicious Central Coast Pinot Noir that tastes just like – wait for it – California Pinot Noir!  The talent and experience of the team that formed this value Pinot producer help, but the real secret here is probably California’s outstanding 2012 harvest.  So, here we have perfectly ripe fruit at a very Pinot-like 13.5% abv, all aged in neutral French oak.  Big, rich, aromas of macerated Bing cherries, spice, and a touch of Central Coast cola.  Round and supple in the mouth with more ripe cherry and strawberry fruit complicated by notes of damp earth, smoke, and cola.  The texture is silky smooth, but there’s enough structure here to work with grilled salmon, seared mushrooms, or even lean beef.  A fine Pinot value.

Vina Robles Red4 2012 Product #29218 (In Stock)
Vina Robles Red4 2012 Vina Robles Red4 2012

It’s not entirely clear how a couple of guys of Swiss heritage created one of Paso Robles’ most exciting young wine estates.  Swiss native Hans Nef spent a couple of years looking for vineyard in California before deciding to buy an scrubby property dotted with oak trees in the Central Coast’s Paso Robles region in 1996.  Fellow Swiss native Matthias Gubler joined in 1999 and made Vina Robles’s first vintage that year.

Nef and Gubler motto – “European Inspiration – California Character” describes their entry-level Red4 blend perfectly.  New label, same robust blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre, same big flavors and soft, plush, texture. The Petite Sirah gives the wine a solid core of blackberry and black plum fruit while the Syrah adds smoky, meaty, elements.  Grenache adds red fruit and spice while the Mourvedre provides and earthy base note.  At just under 14%, this is big but not heavy; a winner.

Here's a terrific California Chardonnay buy!  All the rich, ripe, fruit and flavor of the Sta. Rita Hills with no oak.

"Untouched by oak or malolactic fermentation, this is a pure Santa Rita Hills chardonnay: salty and intense, linear in its acidity yet opening into the succulent sweetness of a ripe papaya. It’s a lively and affordable white that’s tuned into its terroir."Wine & Spirits 90 points

The Federalist Zinfandel  Lodi 2013 The Federalist Zinfandel  Lodi 2013

Notwithstanding the label, there's nothing "revolutionary" here - just a big, gutsy, Lodi Zinfandel that's ready to enjoy with burgers, ribs, or all by itself.  About 7% Syrah gives this an extra kick of earthy dark plum to go with the crushed blackberry and black raspberry fruit and accents of oak and spice.  Big and a touch jammy, this is old-school Zin to enjoy right now.

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink every day.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style – but at an eye-opening value price.

You’ll get good sense of why everyone is so excited about Napa’s 2012 Cabernets here, starting with the sweet and savory aromas of cherry, currant, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, and crushed mint.  The flavors follow the nose at first, but with air gain breadth and creaminess, coating your palate with layers of crushed blackberry, cassis, roasted meat, and rich chocolate.  Delicious stuff, but it’s the elegant structure, perfect balance, and sophisticated tannins lying underneath the long finish that are really exciting in a wine at this price.  A “real deal, real steal” bottle of Napa Cabernet you should not miss!

Fossil Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2013 Product #29629 (In Stock)

Fossil Point is named for the rugged headland in San Luis Obispo County which features sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Central Coast. These cool coastal vineyards are perfect for Pinot Noir, allowing plenty of ripeness while retaining freshness and fine acidity.  After 14 months in French oak, this opens with pretty aromas of ripe cherry, strawberry, rose petal and cedar.  Round and supple in the mouth, the juicy flavors of black cherry and raspberry gain complexity from a dash of sweet spice and leave a dark cola note lingering.

The 2012 was the best Macrostie Chard we'd had in years - but the 2013 is better still.  From vineyards in Carneros, the Russian River Valley, and Wildcat Mountain.  Rich and lush, with plenty of sweet pineapple and tropical fruit, a lash of butter, and bright green apple acids to hold everything in balance. Our favorite value so far from the outstanding 2013 California Chardonnay crop.

Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

If you thought the 90 point 2012 was good, the 2013 will blow you away!  Loads of rich, dark, fruit - plum, Bing cherry, raspberry and currant - are framed by sweet and savory wood notes of vanilla, chocolate, and spice.  Plenty of plush, smooth, Napa character here with classic Cabernet accents of dried herb and smoke.  Finishes rich and very smooth with black fruit, spice, and chocolate notes pumping on through a long, generous, finish. A lot of Napa Cabernet delight for the money!

"Intense red cherry, cranberry, tobacco and tea aromas with a touch of dark tar earth. Full bodied with elegant tannins. Black fruit, leather and tobacco on the long finish. Great balance. Will improve two to three years."  JancisRobinson.com 17/20 points
