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.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2013 Product #28265 (In Stock)
Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2013 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2013

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.

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.

Mount Eden Chardonnay Wolff 2011 Product #29060 (In Stock)
Mount Eden Chardonnay Wolff 2011 Mount Eden Chardonnay Wolff 2011

From a unique, cool, vineyard in the Edna Valley, this is a fantastically classy and stylish Chardonnay at a very compelling price.

"Lively citrus and orchard fruit scents are complicated by notes of sweet butter and honey. Fleshy and smooth in texture, offering spicy pear, orange and fig flavors and a touch of bitter quinine. Nicely concentrated but lively and dry as well, finishing long and tangy, with nervy cut and a hint of anise. As usual, this is a great introduction to Mount Eden's powerful but energetic style of chardonnay at a price almost any wine lover can justify."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Meiomi (Belle Glos) Pinot Noir 2013 Product #29073 (In Stock)
Meiomi (Belle Glos) Pinot Noir 2013 Meiomi (Belle Glos) Pinot Noir 2013

Joe Wagner (of Caymus fame) created Meiomi to offer a big dose of Belle Glos style and quality at a more reasonable, everyday, price.  The bright red wax is gone (hurray!!!) and the fruit comes from the very best vineyards Joe can find up and down the California coast – sites in Sonoma, Monterey, and Santa Barbara.  Just like Belle Glos, Meiomi is what we like to call “Power Pinot” for its lush, creamy, texture and big aromas and flavors of super-ripe fruit and spicy, vanilla and chocolate, oak.  The 2012 edition is a bit brighter and more juicy than the 2011, with a beam of fresh berry juice running through the rich candied raspberry and black cherry cola notes.  The oak is generous but well integrated, adding a dose of spice and milk chocolate.  It’s big and powerful enough to drink will grilled strip steaks but soft and silky enough to just sip with friends.

Cadre Pinot Noir Estate Reserve Edna Valley 2012 Product #29116 (In Stock)
Cadre Pinot Noir Estate Reserve Edna Valley 2012 Cadre Pinot Noir Estate Reserve Edna Valley 2012

The Cadre folks have settled down to make one great wine now from their very fine Firepeak Vineyard blocks in California's cool Edna Valley.  Taking advantage  of the great 2012 vintage, this delivers rich aromas and flavors of dark berries, pie cherry, cola and spice that start pure, gain mid-palate richness, and then finish clean and bright with sour cherry acids and a touch of tangy pomegranate.  Plenty of California richness here plus a bright, food and crowd-friendly structure that makes it a natural for both parties and table.  A whopping 30% off won't make this classic California Pinot Noir taste better, but it's not a negative thing, either!

Shane Syrah Valenti Ranch Anderson Valley 2011 Product #28129 (In Stock)
Shane Syrah Valenti Ranch Anderson Valley 2011 Shane Syrah Valenti Ranch Anderson Valley 2011

This is the final vintage for Shane from this great Syrah vineyard, and he's going out with a bang.  As he says, this is a "Rhone tribute" wine, full of meaty, smoky, mineral complexity.  100% whole clusters, no new wood, 1000% delight.

"Aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate and violet, with a peppery topnote. Supple and deeply pitched but with good energy and floral lift to its dark berry and licorice flavors. Sweet and tactile syrah, with silky, building tannins and noteworthy persistence. Still a baby; I'd give this wine at least another three years of rest."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Tuck Beckstoffer Grenache California Melee 2012 Product #28125 (In Stock)
Tuck Beckstoffer Grenache California Melee 2012 Tuck Beckstoffer Grenache California Melee 2012

Tuck Beckstoffer's Melee Grenache is a big mouthful of red berry fruit, fresh earth, warm stones, and even a little "garrigue" - with all the ripeness you'd expect from California but also with more restraint and class.  The crisp finish features notes of anise and current fruit lingering over a pretty mineral streak and mouthwatering acids. Try it with Middle Eastern food or even curry!

Jonata Todos Vineyard Blend Santa Ynez 2009 Product #27581 (In Stock)
Jonata Todos Vineyard Blend Santa Ynez 2009 Jonata Todos Vineyard Blend Santa Ynez 2009

A super-interesting, very composed, wine from this very quickly up-and-coming estate.

"Readers who want to explore the Jonata wines without investing in the top bottlings will want to check out the 2009 Todos, which is strikingly beautiful. It shows marvelous intensity, great depth and tons of intensity from start to finish. Layers of dark red and black fruit and flowers flow effortlessly from this flashy, totally dazzling wine. Today, the 2009 boasts huge fruit and an equally compelling personality. Although priced well below some of the other wines in this lineup, it is not clear to me the Todos is far off the mark of those wines at all. Todos is a bit of a kitchen sink blend composed of 63% Syrah, 12% Sangiovese, 11% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and dollops of Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."Wine Advocate 93 points

Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011 Product #28546 (In Stock)
Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011 Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011

From Bill Wathen and Dick Dore's 7200 project that focuses on Bordeaux varietals, this medium-bodied Cabernet is fragrant and complex.  It opens with exotic aromas of resinous herbs and blackberry jam.  On the palate, the tannins are ripe but firm, and it's got plenty of juicy acidity, making it a great partner to a wider variety of foods than most California Cabernets.
