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.

Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2012 Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2012

Here's a great deal in cool-climate California Chardonnay that delivers both bright, fresh, fruit and a crisp, minerally, finish.  Anderson Valley's cool, crisp, nights and sunshine-filled days makes it outstanding Chardonnay territory. Generous green apple, stone fruit, and pear fruit aromas and flavors get support from chalky minerality and a dash of citrusy acidity on the mouthwatering finish.  Just a touch of oak lends body and a hint of hazelnut.  Crisp, clean, and a steal at this price!

Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2011 Product #28533 (In Stock)
Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2011 Tobias Vineyards Chardonnay North Coast 2011

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 2011 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!

Josh Cellars Merlot 2011 Product #27529 (In Stock)
Josh Cellars Merlot 2011 Josh Cellars Merlot 2011

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 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.

Josh Cellars Chardonnay North Coast 2013 Product #28980 (In Stock)
Josh Cellars Chardonnay North Coast 2013 Josh Cellars Chardonnay North Coast 2013

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.

Calera Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012 375ml Product #28182 (In Stock)
Calera Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012 375ml Calera Pinot Noir Central Coast 2012 375ml

Calera's been on a roll for years now - with this wine hauling in 91-92 point ratings for five vintages in a row.  The 2012 could be their best ever from the limestone vineyards they work with across the Central Coast.  Deep, dark, aromas of berry, spice and violets lead to juicy black currant, plum, cherry and cola flavors with a hint of spice.  The spice and mineral elements gain strength on the soft finish with just a touch of oak at the end.  Outstanding Pinot and superb value.

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.

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.

Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013 Product #28527 (In Stock)
Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013 Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013

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!

Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Another solid vintage for what must be one of Napa's most consistent "top value" Cabernet Sauvignon's.  Sappy, fruit-forward, aromas of currant, cherry and blackberry lead to a soft, supple, mouthful of plum, currant and dark berry fruit with accents of cedar, fresh herb, and spice.  The plush velvet tannins give support but don't get in the way of enjoying this easygoing Napa red.

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28698 (In Stock)
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!

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012 Product #28591 (In Stock)
Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012 Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012

A favorite from the past roars back into top form in the ripe, deep, 2012 vintage.  The Sonoma Coast designation allows Steve MacRostie to take fruit for this beauty from top vineyards in Carneros, the Russian River Valley, and even his flagship site, the majestic Wildcat Mountain vineyard.  It’s big, 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. Perhaps our favorite value so far from the outstanding 2012 California Chardonnay crop.

"Best Buy! A number of vineyards contribute to this wine, including Sangiacomo at the base of Sonoma Mountain and Saralee’s in the Russian River Valley. The various sites knit together well, creating an open and fragrant chardonnay redolent of wildflower honey and chanterelle mushrooms. It’s a gentle and harmonious wine that would show well paired with rabbit in a cream sauce."Wine & Spirits 92 points

"So bright and zingy in acidity, and so ripe in tangerine, mango, lime fruit and honeysuckle, that you hardly notice the oak influence. Yet, it’s there in the form of buttered toast. The result is a big, powerful Chardonnay, clean and vibrant, for drinking now with dramatic shellfish and pork dishes."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.

Paraiso Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2010 Product #27721 (In Stock)
Paraiso Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2010 Paraiso Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2010

A great value from the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2010 Paraiso manages to delivery plenty of ripe Pinot fruit without heaviness or over-ripeness.  Raspberry, cherry, and wild berry fruit flavors gain complexity from a touch of earthiness and a kiss of French Oak.  A touch lighter on its feet than the 2010, but delicious all the same and ready to enjoy tonight!

Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 Product #29122 (In Stock)
Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

It's hard to find really good Cabernet Sauvignon for $20 or less, and darn near impossible to find Cab this good in Napa at that price.  But, these three Italian-American winemakers from Verona have managed to pull off something very special in 2012.  Rich, gutsy, and  powerful, this is big enough for roasts or steaks but fleshy and plump enough to just sip.  A winning value.

"The delicious, fruit-forward 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has been produced by Ca’Momi. Its dark ruby/purple hue is accompanied by copious aromas of black currants and spice as well as richness and length that build incrementally on the palate. This tasty, high-class Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed over the next decade or more."Wine Advocate 90 points

When you've starred as head winemaker for St. Emilion's Ch La Tour Figeac, you  know a little something about great Merlot. Winemaker Aaron Pott brings that expertise to bear on this blend of Merlot from Napa's Yountville and Oak Knoll regions.  Very pretty aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry and fresh herb lead to a plump, soft (but shapely) mouthful of cocoa, mint, plum, sweet cherry and savory mushroom flavors.  The finish is smooth and fresh and stylish, especially for a wine at this price.  Great value.

Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet Alexander Valley 2012 Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet Alexander Valley 2012

Here's a very classy California Cabernet that's comfortably under-priced - in fact, Wine Enthusiast has called it "One of the best values in Cabernet on the market."  From an old-vine vineyard not far from Geyersville in Alexander Valley and the great 2012 vintage, it pumps out generous aromas and flavors of black and red currant, crushed herb, dark chocolate and spice.  The ripe fruit is lifted by citrusy acidity and the finish sails on over firm, ripe, tannins.  Balanced, stylish, and delicious.

Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013 Product #29041 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013 Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013

No one is sure how this native grape from eastern France’s Jura region reached the USA, but it was once widely planted (if equally widely mis-identified) across California.  Today the sole source for Trousseau Gris wine grapes is the small Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River.  Winemakers Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams  give it a cool fermentation in tank and neutral oak and bottle it just 4 months later to capture all of its freshness and vivid acids. A crazy cool and delicious wine to sip by itself, with salads, fish, or even Asian foods.

“Fresh herbs, white pepper, smoke and spices on the nose; reminded me a bit of gruner veltliner. Tactile, saline and bracing in the mouth, with very dry but not overly herbal flavors of lemon zest, anise, white pepper and snap pea. Dusty and concentrated but not hard. Saturates the palate with lemon, pepper and spices on the lingering finish. Leaves the mouth feeling refreshed. I like this style.”International Wine Cellar 90 points
