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

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.

Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Product #31720 (In Stock)
Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Heron Pinot Noir California 2015

Here's a delicious party Pinot Noir that well out-performs the modest price.  Ripe Pinot fruit from Paso Robles, Monterey and the Russian River Valley gets a cool fermentation and then aging in 1 and 2 year-old French oak.  That brings out a lovely richness and very RRV-like candied cherry fruit with accents of cola, spice and pepper.  Nice and round on the palate, there's enough structure here for this to shine with salmon and poultry.

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!

Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2013 Product #31656 (In Stock)
Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2013 Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2013

While this is technically a "Bordeaux blend" - meaning Cab, Merlot, etc. - you'll do better considering it a true "red blend."  Fruit from cool Alexander Valley give it freshness while grapes from hot Lodi, Dry Creek Valley and Paso Robles add plenty of heft.  Bold blackberry, cassis, oak spice and cedar aromas really pop on the rich, dense, palate and keep on pumping through a firm, powerful, finish. Bold red for a brisket, ribs, or burgers.

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

Beran Zinfandel California 2013 Product #31542 (In Stock)
Beran Zinfandel California 2013 Beran Zinfandel California 2013

A new wine from Joe Wagner of Belle Glos fame, here's a big, fleshy, Zinfandel just jam-packed with rich, ripe, fruit.  Given 30 days of skin contact (for maximum flavor/texture extraction) and 12 months in barrel (to round off the edges), it's an unusually plush zin that stays just this side of "over the top."  Classic Zinny aromas and flavors of crushed red berry, cherry pie, and plenty of oaky spice and vanilla with a smooth as silk finish.

Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Product #30408 (In Stock)
Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Jonata The Paring Red 2012

An intense blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (24%) plus Cab Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged in barrel for 22 months. It's rich and creamy with loads of chocolate and cassis and a soft, supple, finish.

"The 2012 Red Wine is superb. Supple, radiant and expressive, the 2012 graces the palate with exquisite dark fruit, mocha, plums, spices, raspberry jam and dark spices. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this supremely delicious Cabernet Sauvignon-based red. The 2012 Red Wine is easily one of the very best values readers will find in California."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"Made by the team at Jonata, these wines are basically declassified lots that didn't make the cut for the top Jonata releases. These 2012s are a step up from past vintages and are crazy values. Don't miss a chance to grab some of these! The smokin' good 2012 Red Wine sports an inky purple color to go with full-boded, pure and layered aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, blackberries and graphite. Gorgeously pure, concentrated and structured, with the classic Jonata tannic grip, it's made with a slightly gentler extraction to be more approachable, but it will still have a decade or more of longevity. Aged in 45% new French oak, don't miss it!"Wine Advocate 91 points

Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Oliver's Vyd 2014 Product #31705 (In Stock)
Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Oliver's Vyd 2014 Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Oliver's Vyd 2014

Delivers stunning richness at just 13.6% abv. Do not miss!

"Potent smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of ripe orange, pear, lemongrass and iodine. Fleshy yet dry and precise, offering energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors complemented by hints of quinine, tarragon and honeysuckle. Closes with emphatic cut and firm grip, leaving a zesty note of smoky minerals behind. Impressive for its blend of depth and finesse, not to mention its precision."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"Another terrific white is the 2014 Chardonnay Oliver's Vineyard, which is located in the Edna Valley and was planted in 1991 (it's named after Talley Farms founder Oliver Talley). Barrel-fermented and aged 15 months in 16% new French oak, it's a richer, mineral-laced effort that offers lots of buttered orchard fruits, caramelized citrus and brioche to go with a textured, layered style on the palate that still has impressive purity, tension and acidity. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years."Wine Advocate 93 points
