Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Product #29234 (In Stock)
Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2012 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.

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.

Leese-fitch Merlot 2012 Product #28356 (In Stock)
Leese-fitch Merlot 2012 Leese-fitch Merlot 2012

"With brambly purple color, the vanilla notes burst from the glass. Then the aroma turns towards strawberry jam, plum, and crushed cardamom. The mouth fills with flavors of ripe black raspberry, sweetened cranberry cocktail, fresh summer cherries, toasted almond, and summer plums. The finish has layers of vanilla bean from a combination of French and American oak with a touch of complexity from notes of Brazil nut and sweet raspberry cordial. The acidity keeps the wine bright while the fruit flavors bounce between sweet and tart." Winery Notes

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.

Michael & David Phillips Petite Petite 2011 Product #27929 (In Stock)
Michael & David Phillips Petite Petite 2011 Michael & David Phillips Petite Petite 2011

Always one of our favorite "big" wines - as the winery says, "Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large!"  This year it's a blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot.  The Petite Sirah gives full-bodied fruit and licorice notes while the Petit Verdot ads perfume and a touch of lavender.  As the winemaker says, "Offering a joyous explosion of color and fun, it is a substantial, dense, full-bodied, whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger."

Mainly Sauvignon Blanc plus Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat. Generous aromas of green apple, tangerine zest and honeysuckle.

Dom Eden Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mtns 2012 Product #29173 (In Stock)

Despite the fact that this is a second label for Mount Eden, Domaine Eden includes about a quarter fruit from Mount Eden's Estate Chardonnay.  Its 11 months on the lees and 30% new oak give it a classy richness.  Notes of toast, hazelnuts, and white flowers on the nose give way to a a pleasing raciness on the palate.  This is an elegant Chardonnay that can be drunk now or age for several year.

Prisoner Wine Company Saldo Zinfandel 2012 Product #28334 (In Stock)
Prisoner Wine Company Saldo Zinfandel 2012 Prisoner Wine Company Saldo Zinfandel 2012

The most impressive vintage for Saldo yet!  As always, mainly Zinfndel (85%) plus Petite Sirah (9%) and a dash Syrah from top vineyards all across California.  In this great Zinfandel vintage, there's as much ripe flavor as ever - luscious dark  raspberry, boysenberry, blackberry fruit - and plenty of cracked pepper, dark chocolate and roasted coffee and spice accents. But, there's a touch more focus, precision and class here than you'd expect and even as the fruit and spice flavors gush through the wine's finish, things stay poised and even refreshing.  Fun to sip and a great match for big BBQ flavors!

Prisoner 2013 Product #28919 (In Stock)
Prisoner 2013 Prisoner 2013

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:  In 2013 44% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Syrah, 18% Petite Sirah, and 2% Charbono. The plush, ripe, fruit comes from some of California’s top vineyards, including Korte, Page Nord, York Creek, Hudson and Black Sears.

Like you, we don’t get to taste Prisoner until Haloween, but winemaker Jen Beloz’s notes are sure to make your mouth water!  “Aromas of briar fruits and dried cherry are accented by hints of vanilla and toasted oak. On the palate, tiers of blueberry, ripe mulberry and boysenberry give way to an edge of espresso, cracked pepper and a seasoning of fall spice. These dense aromas and flavors culminate in a lingering finish framed by refined tannins.”

"The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend The Prisoner is a creative blend of 44% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petite Sirah, as well as Syrah, Grenache and Charbono. This dense, full-bodied, opulent red reveals gutsy, rich, peppery, meaty, blackberry, blackcurrant and licorice notes. A savory, lusty, heady red, it begs for a grilled steak or a big, juicy hamburger. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

Keplinger Lithic 2011 Product #27919 (In Stock)
Keplinger Lithic 2011 Keplinger Lithic 2011

Helen Keplinger continues to be one of Napa's "hottest" winemakers, building on her experience working in Priorat and in California at Bryant and with the likes of Heidi Barrett, Kathy Joseph, and David Abreu. We're fortunate to get a few cases of her Lithic blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah, and this year's Lithic is as perfumed and layered as ever, with a captivating vibrancy and juicier personality than in the past.  Aromas of violets, mineral dust, anise, and blue and black berry fruits lead to a mouthful of black fruit, licorice, and spice that unfurls with air.  Lovely tannin here in a difficult vintage - broad but very fine grained and plush.  A focused mineral streak recalls the Chateauneuf du Pape this mirrors, but the fruit and flavors are distinctively California.  Long, lovely, and limited - just 230 cases made.

"Dark red cherries, menthol, tobacco and savory herbs are some of the many notes that flesh out in the 2011 Lithic. Even with all of its early appeal, the Lithic boasts tremendous depth and has the pedigree to develop beautifully for a number of years. The polished finish is striking, but today, the Lithic is showing just a hint of its potential. The blend is 46% Grenache, 31% Mourvedre and 23% Syrah, with the Mourvedre and Syrah clearly dominating today. All of the fruit was sourced from Shake Ridge Vineyard in Amador."  Antonio Galloni 92 points

"Edgy and rustic, with a dense, potent core of road tar, dark berry, black licorice and raspberry, this is a vital young wine that begs for cellaring, delivering purity, complexity and density. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2015 through 2028. 230 cases made."Wine Spectator 94 points
