Alexander Valley Gewurztraminer Mendocino 2014 Product #29940 (In Stock)
Alexander Valley Gewurztraminer Mendocino 2014 Alexander Valley Gewurztraminer Mendocino 2014

A delightful, very aromatic, treat from a winery better known for Cabernet and Zinfandel.  From a tiny vineyard in Medocino, this serves up extravagant aromas of white fruit, lychee fruit, ginger, and baking spice.  On the palate, it's rich and loaded with grapefruit and pear flavors to go with the gingery spice and then turns very dry, even crisp, on the finish with ginger and rose petal notes lingering behind.  Fun stuff and a terrific value.  Try it!

McManis Chardonnay 2014 Product #30394 (In Stock)
McManis Chardonnay 2014 McManis Chardonnay 2014

From the seldom seen River Junction AVA (in California's Central Valley), this happy Chardonnay delivers pure, unadulterated, fun. Big aromas of pineapple, peach, and yellow apple fruit with a charming touch of mint. Then a bit of oaky vanilla to go with grilled pineapple and pear fruit and a good squirt of apple-like acidity for freshness on the back. A touch of vanilla comes up on the back where salty caramel and fruit flavors linger. A fine sipper/party Chard and a very fine value. If you want to impress your friends, tell them this earned a gold medal and 96 point score at the 2015 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. If you want to really impress them, though, just give 'em a sip.

Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Product #30207 (In Stock)
Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2013

A young winery - founded in 2003 - with a pretty simple mission:  Make wine folks will enjoy!  And that's what this fun, fruit-filled, and lightly oaked Chardonnay does very well.  It's all from Poppy's vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, first planted in 1972.  Warm sunshine got the grapes fully ripe and bursting with flavor.  Cool nights kept the acids fresh and held the alcohol down to a nicely balanced 13.5%.  About 30% of the wine was done in stainless steel - for fresh, bright fruit - and the rest with oak for creamy richness and complexity.

You'll find plenty of richness here, with good dollops of grilled pineapple, ripe pear, golden apple, buttery oak and a round, creamy, texture. Turns more crisp in the mouth with apple and bright pear fruit and notes of green apple and butter lingering nicely.  A great party Chard for casual sipping and pretty darn versatile at table, too!

"This must be the best-value Chardonnay from Santa Lucia Highlands. Fresh and elegant with a bounty of melon and peach fruit and lemon intensity. It could have a longer finish but it’s lush and creamy with great complexity for the price."  Decanter Magazine 90 points

Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013 Product #30468 (In Stock)
Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2013 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.

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 375ml Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 375ml

Half Bottle  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.

Leese-fitch Merlot 2014 Leese-fitch Merlot 2014


Dark ruby in color, this Merlot showcases aromas of muddled blackberry with thyme, vanilla, plum preserves, and savory notes of toasted rye bread. The flavors start with jammy blackberry, caramelized vanilla, molasses, and black cherry notes with hints of Herbs du Provence. As the flavors start to evolve and linger on the finish, bright pomegranate, tart plum, American Oak vanilla nuances, and black currants come forth on the palate. Winery Notes

Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2014 Product #29985 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2014 Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2014

Here's a truly luxurious Russian River Chardonnay made with all the care and high quality you'd expect in a $40 wine - but for much, much, less!  The fruit came from three excellent Russian River vineyards - Ricci, Bisordi and Pellini - plus some estate fruit from the excellent sub-region of Green Valley.  In 2014, drought gave small clusters of intense fruit that ripened to perfection.  About 30% of the fruit was fermented and aged in French oak for complexity and spice with the rest in tank to retain vivid, fresh.

The 2013 edition was a 90 pointer from Wine Enthusiast, and this is better still.  It opens with classic Russian River Chard aromas of crisp green apple, orange blossom, lemon zest, ripe Asian pear, and a touch of vanilla bean.  Then a juicy mouthful of apple, pear, and lemon flavors accented by notes of buttered popcorn and toasty caramel.  The buttered toast, green apple, ripe pear and salty caramel flavors linger nicely as a mouthwatering but easy finish provides enough support for food.  A great Chardonnay for parties and sipping that's classy enough to serve with serious meals.

Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Product #30208 (In Stock)
Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013

Who says you can't find good value in balanced, delicious, California Pinot Noir!  This gem from cool vineyards in the Central Coast's Arroyo Seco gets a pretty luxurious treatment.  The grapes are harvested by hand and come to the winery cool.  After crush, fermentation starts and stays cool and slow to preserve plenty of fruit with gentle pump-overs to extract color and structure.  Then, into French oak barrels to age for 10 months or so, allowing the wine to come together and harmonize.

Give it swirl and you'll enjoy the classic Pinot scents of dark cherry, raspberry, fresh earth and spice.  In your mouth, the flavors spread out nicely with good energy and breadth, but never get heavy or clunky - just 13.5% abv and good acidity helps.  The dark berry, spice and smoke flavors flow through the generous, crisp, finish with berry and caramel notes lingering nicely.  Fresh, generous, easy-drinking, and well priced.

Poppy's a pretty much perfect Paso party cab.  No, it's not terribly serious, but the boisterous fruit, smoky oak, and sweet spice aromas and flavors are forward and ready to play. Juicy and fleshy on the palate with smooth, supple, tannins and a nice lash of black fruit, smoke and spice on the smooth, fresh, finish.  Easy drinking fun.

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.

Made from all Paso Robles Fruit, the 2013 Varner Foxglove Zin is unusually classy, smooth, and mellow for this AVA.  Big aromas of briary fruit and spice lead to rich flavors of raspberry, red plum, dried flowers, and cracked black pepper.  It's juicy enough to stay fresh through a second (or third!) glass but big and structured enough to handle hearty food. A very fine value.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2014 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2014

As always, the folks at Talley do a fine job with their "no oak" Bishop's Peak program. More aromatic than many inexpensive Chardonnays, this features aromas of ripe golden apples and pears.  On the palate, no oak and no malolactic fermentation keep it fresh and crisp, with flavors of more tart green apples and a little citrus zest.  A great everyday Chardonnay for light poultry dishes or sipping before a meal.

"Fresh pear and tangerine scents are complemented by ginger and honey. Smooth and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a hint of melon. Emphatically fruity Chardonnay with very good closing breadth and cling."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

The 2013 is a blend of fruit from vineyards in Santa Barbara County and Paso Robles, done entirely in steel, with no malolactic fermentation. It is also one of the very best values in California Chardonnay readers will come across."   Vinous (Galloni) 89 points
