Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Product #27447 (In Stock)
Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011

The 2011 edition started out a bit closed and tight, but now it’s opened up to deliver complex, delicious, aromas and flavors of golden apple, ripe pear, lemon curd, and fennel.  The lemony fruit gets a hint of kumquat and salty sea breeze on the brisk, mouthwatering, finish.  Surprisingly rich-feeling in your mouth, especially given the less than 13% alcohol, this is a killer back porch sipper and better still with briny seafood or salty meats.  As Jancis Robinson said of the 2008, “one mouthful of this was enough to remind me of a lunch in Liguria high above the sparkling blue Mediterranean."

"BEST BUY! Made from a hard-to-find variety in California, this bright, beautifully aromatic wine expresses gorgeous scents of jasmine that follow through in flavor to the finish. Its layers of lime, apple and a generous level of minerality are perfectly executed and waiting for seafood."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011 Product #26595 (In Stock)
Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011 Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011

The fact that a wine comes from a famous entertainer isn't a particularly strong endorsement. But here the proof is in the pudding, as they say.  From Train's Jimmy Stafford and Concannon Vineyard, this is once again a rock solid value red for sipping and grilling.  Mainly Petite Sirah, it's ripe and fruit-forward with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit plus just a touch of plum pudding and spice.  Soft and wide open from first pour, this finishes with big, but very soft, tannins.  Great burger or sipping wine and a very nice value, too.

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.

Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2010 Product #26899 (In Stock)
Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2010 Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2010

When you're the son and assistant winemaker for Napa legend Ric Forman, you really ought to know a thing or two about making great Chardonnay.  And, when you're married to another third-generation grape grower, you really ought to be able to bring in excellent fruit, too.  So, the only thing really surprising about the outstanding Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay 2010 from Toby and Dawn Forman is the price - sure tastes like $40 Chardonnay, but carries a very attractive sub-$20 price tag!

Made from fruit grown and purchased from around the North Coast, this gets a touch of oak and about 30% goes through malolactic fermentation for a touch of buttery creaminess. The aromas and flavors feature plenty of ripe apple, pear, pineapple and citrus fruit with a nice dose of spice.  The texture is creamy and rich, but the bright acids keep things fresh and pure. A terrific wine, especially at this price!

Egret Pinot Noir California 2011 Product #27273 (In Stock)
Egret Pinot Noir California 2011 Egret Pinot Noir California 2011

Here's a very fine value in California Pinot Noir with excellent ripeness, balance (just 13.5% abv) and varietal character (i.e., it actually tastes like Pinot!).  Fruit from across the North Coast ferments cool and ages 10 months in mostly new oak.  Bright, ripe, black and Bing cherries take center stage with attractive accents of fresh earth, mushroom, and gentle oaky spice.  Soft and easygoing, it's a fine party or back porch Pinot that will work well with salmon, grilled pork, and mushroom-flavored dishes.

A value line from Napa winery Joseph Carr, the 2012 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.

From Joseph Carr, this great value Merlot delivers a lot more than it's modest price suggests. Classic Merlot aromas and flavors of soft red plum, blackcurrant, and a touch of dried herb get a little boost of oak spice and mellow chocolate.  Plenty of fruit in this balanced, easygoing, Merlot that finishes softly with lingering fruit and herb.

X Winery Big Gun Red 2010 Product #27544 (In Stock)
X Winery Big Gun Red 2010 X Winery Big Gun Red 2010

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 Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Malbec 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.  There's a pleasing touch of Cabernet Franc's herbal note in the middle that gets stronger on the end.  Great wine for anything grilled or just to enjoy at a party.

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2011 Product #27172 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2011 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2011

The newest release of what Wine Advocate has called, "one of the top values in California wine" is another winner.  A blend of fruit from Santa Barbara, Paso Robles, and other sites with zero oak and no malolactic acidity, it delivers honeyed lemon, pear, and honeysuckle notes with a touch of fresh pineapple.  Zesty and clean on the end with fine purity and balance.  A winner!

"The 2011 Chardonnay is a beauty, as well as an absurd value. Very clean and lively, with classic Chardonnay notes of juiced apple, citrus and minerality, it is clean and focused on the palate with the richness of the variety, yet also beautiful precision and focus. Classy and well-made, without any apparent oak, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 2-3 years. Drink now-2016."Wine Advocate 91 points

This is yet another in a long line of fantastic Sauvignon Blancs from the good folks at Honig. A blend of 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Muscat and 3% Semillon, this gets two separate fermentations - one whole cluster pressed and another destemmed with a little time on the skins. The wine is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve its fresh fruit flavors and aromas. Aromas of orange blossom and grapefruit are accompanied by lemon, melon, peach and nectarine flavors that are ripe, juicy and refreshing. Medium bodied with a crisp, refreshing, slightly minerally finish. Just delicious stuff!

Field Recordings Fiction Blanc 2011 Field Recordings Fiction Blanc 2011

Winemaker Andrew Jones spends most of his time planting and tending vineyards around California, which allows him to get access to small lots of fine fruit from around the state.  Field Recordings is the label he uses for these small lot, idiosyncratic, wines. His 2011 Field Recordings white is a blend of Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscat that is ripe, sweetly fruited, and surprisingly food friendly. Loads of peach, orange, melon, lemon peel, and honeysuckle here accented by a big bunch of fresh flowers.  Round and rich in the mouth but dry and bright on the crisp finish.  Fun stuff, and sure to please anyone who likes Conundrum (but wants to spend a little less!).

Vina Robles Red4 2010 Product #27534 (In Stock)
Vina Robles Red4 2010 Vina Robles Red4 2010

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.  As in France’s Rhone Valley, the wine is a blend of distinctive grapes – Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Mourvedre – that complement one another beautifully.

"There’s a robust heartiness to this Rhône-style blend that makes it perfect for drinking on cold nights with spicy barbecue or stew. Mainly Syrah and Petite Sirah, it’s rich in blackberry, bacon and black pepper flavors. Bone dry and moderate in alcohol, it represents great quality for the price."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Another solid, satisfying, bottle of California Cabernet that would cost $10 more if it was from Napa! Rich, ripe, and packed with sweet blackberry, blueberry, and currant fruit accented by a dusty cocoa powder note.  Perfectly balanced between richness, acid, and fine, dusty, tannin, this is ready to enjoy now with a steak or even just on its own.

Parcel 41 Merlot Napa Valley 2011 Parcel 41 Merlot Napa Valley 2011

"Parcel 41" was the original surveyor's designation for this winery's site in Napa, and the wine is a touch "old school" too! It's rock solid, right down the middle, Napa Merlot with flavors and aromas of redcurrant, coffee, vanilla and herb.  The texture is plump and soft in the middle before fine, firm, tannin comes up on the lightly creamy finish. Easy to like and drink on its own or with lamb or beef.

Qupe Chardonnay Bien Nacido Y Block 2012 Qupe Chardonnay Bien Nacido Y Block 2012

While Qupe is best known for their Rhone varietals (red and white), they turn out a pretty fine Chardonnay from the “Y Block” of the famous Bien Nacido vineyard.  The ripe fruit is barrel fermented (25% new), but it’s the acidity and freshness that really grabs you.  Plenty of crisp apple and asian pear fruit framed by juicy citrus acid and a touch of leesy creaminess.  A crowd-pleaser and very strong value.
