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.

Leese-fitch Merlot 2014 Product #30388 (In Stock)
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

Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #31113 (In Stock)
Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Bob Stack is best known as an importer of fine value wines from around the world (his Chapoutier Bila-Haut wines have been favorites for years).  He named his California negotiant venture Clos Robert to clearly indicate his preference for French-styled Cabs, and that’s what he delivers here.  And, in California's great 2013 vintage, this is the best release ever here and tastes far more expensive than it is.

It's full of lush raspberry, cassis, and black plum fruit with just the right accent of Bordeaux-like fresh herb.  Full-bodied and nicely ripe, the touches of oak spice and bitter chocolate add more complexity.  The chunky texture and soft "chew" on the finish mean this will handle a steak easily - but there's no reason not to drink this all by itself. Hands down, the best value we've seen in California over the past few years.

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015 Product #30913 (In Stock)
Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015 Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015

This has been one of Robert Parker's favorite "value" Pinot Noirs over the past few years; as he said of the 2013, "An authentic tasting Pinot Noir that sells for a song...Aromas of sweet red and black cherry fruit intermixed with clove and baking spices are offered in a medium-bodied, earthy, soft, silky style." Another solid release in the fine 2015 vintage and still a great deal. Fun stuff.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2014 Product #29881 (In Stock)
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

Butter Chardonnay California 2015 Product #30783 (In Stock)
Butter Chardonnay California 2015 Butter Chardonnay California 2015

Yes, Butter is back – and it’s just as fine as ever!  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 fine (if small) 2015 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 5 vintages, so now’s the time to grab a full year’s supply!

Val d'Or The Cleaver Red Blend 2013 Product #31034 (In Stock)
Val d'Or The Cleaver Red Blend 2013 Val d'Or The Cleaver Red Blend 2013

"A must for meat - Just ask your butcher!" is the slogan here, and the wine delivers on the promise.  It's about 70% Zinfandel, 20% Syrah, and 10% Petit Sirah all aged 16 months in 30% new (70% neutral) French oak for spice and class. Jam-packed with ripe raspberry, blackberry and dark cherry fruit - very Zinny - with extra plushness from the Syrah and Petit Sirah.  Brairy fruit and sweet/smoky spice on the finish make this an outstanding cookout red!

Here's a robust blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, from Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez made by an original Rhone Ranger, Bob Lindquist.  It's polished and plush on the palate, with a rich, silky, texture and loads of juicy red fruit and earthy accents.  Finishes clean and brambly with just the right amount of sipping and food-friendly structure.  Very nice value, too!

Marietta Christo Lot 3 Product #30367 (In Stock)
Marietta Christo Lot 3 Marietta Christo Lot 3

One of America's great value wineries specializes in creating multi-vintage blends that, as Parker says, "Sell for a song." This one's a winner!

"There are approximately 12,000 cases of the NV Christo Lot 3, which is a hedonistic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah and a touch of Viognier to uplift the aromatics. This is, again, aged in neutral oak for two years and a blend of three vintages: 2011, 2012 and 2013. This is my favorite of all of these wines – a wine of exceptional purity and intensity and plenty of character, as this one is 70% Syrah and the rest the other three grapes. It tips the scales at a lofty 15.3% alcohol, but it’s well hidden behind a cascade of blackberry and cassis fruit, roasted meats, steak tartare, licorice and Provençal herbs. It’s a big boy, and that’s exactly the way they want it. This wine should drink well for 7-8 years, but it’s meant to be consumed in its exuberant youthfulness."Wine Advocate 91 points

Slo Down Stand Out Red 2012 Product #30631 (In Stock)
Slo Down Stand Out Red 2012 Slo Down Stand Out Red 2012

Technically this is a California "Meritage" blend of Cab and Merlot, but it's better to think of it as just a bit ole fun mouthfull of rich and juicy red wine.  It's rich and creamy-textured and loaded with dark blackberry, raspberry, and chocolate-covered cherry fruit and a big dose of toasted marshmallow.  Like the label, it's kind of brash and over the top - in a fun way.

Prisoner 2014 Product #30144 (In Stock)
Prisoner 2014 Prisoner 2014

As always, the Prisoner is not for the faint hearted, although it’s become considerably better mannered since Jen Beloz took over winemaking.  It’s a big - right around 15% alcohol - California red that escapes from the glass with an explosion of super-ripe red and black fruit plenty of spicy oak. It’s always an exotic flavor profile from an exotic blend:  About 40% Zinfandel with around 20% each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Syrah and a splash of Charbono for chewy spice.

Winemaker Jen Beloz’s notes are sure to make your mouth water!  “Bold aromas of black cherry and plum are heightened by hints of oak and Madagascar vanilla. A soft and velvety palate of anise, dark cocoa powder and roasted sage lead into a dense finish with luscious tannins.” Capture your share of Prisoner before it escapes!

"Plump and jammy, with a solid core of structure. Aromas of huckleberry and spicy mocha combine with supple flavors of raspberry and cherry plus cinnamon and pepper. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Charbono."Wine Spectator 91 points
