Barrel Head Cellars The Trip Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Product #33375 (In Stock)
Barrel Head Cellars The Trip Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Barrel Head Cellars The Trip Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

While value in California Cab is getting ever harder to find, here's a winner in the "drink big Cab whenever you like" sweepstakes.  It's 100% Cab Sauv from Lodi, ripened to full flavor at a modest 13.5% alcohol.  Loads of dark blackberry, boysenberry and cherry fruit show on the nose and palate with subtle accents of dried herb and balsam.  A bold spice note comes up on the palate and sings out with the dark fruit over the smooth, easy, finish.  About as fine a cookout/party Cab as we've seen at this price in years.

Back-to-back "Best Buy" awards from Wine Enthusiast for the past two vintages certainly seem justified from this excellent 2016!  There's a nice sheen of oak on the nose and palate - rare at this price! - and plenty of fleshy, velvety, raspberry, currant and plum fruit. Rich fruit, chocolate and spice flavors flow from front to back and hold on through a smooth, easygoing, finish. Solid value here.

Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Product #32470 (In Stock)
Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015

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

Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Product #32306 (In Stock)
Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015

Check out the back label here - the argument is that a hammer is the right tool for ANY job and that this wine is pretty much the perfect choice for any occasion.  Not sure about the hammer, but we're all-in on the wine!  This is 100% Pinot Noir from Monterey, on California's Central Coast, and the outstanding (for Pinot) 2015 vintage. Perfectly ripe at a very Pinot-like 13.5%, with a just right touch of wood influence and a great, everyday, price, this is built to bring down the house!

Big, fresh, aromas of cherry, plum, cola and a touch of smoke lead to a fresh, sweetly fruited, palate of crushed cherries/berries, spice and earth.  Deliciously unsubtle, it delivers bold flavors without any excess weight and a clean, mouthwatering, finish that will pull your back for more.  Tasting more like $25 than $15, this is a terrific weeknight or party Pinot for this year and next.

A fine bargain for rich, robust, Zinfnadel, especially vs. the $23 winery price! This is classic "burger Zin," big (14%) but not huge, with outstanding focus and balance.  Big aromas and flavors of ripe (but not quite jammy) blackberry and dark cherry fruit gain complexity from bold accents of oaky caramel and spice and a nice touch of briary herb.  Mouthfilling and rich, but not at all sweet, this finiesh plush and smooth. Meat. Grill. Zin.

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2016 Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2016

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 small 2016 vintage and still a great deal. Fun stuff.

This well-priced California Cab is a true treat.  The aromas and flavors are classic:  red and black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate, spice and herb.  Where this stands out is in how rich, creamy, and chocolaty it feels in your mouth!  With air a bit more vanilla and spice emerge and flow through with juicy raspberry and chocolate flavors on the appealingly sweet and smooth finish.  A fine sipper, great party wine, and fun bottle for burgers or steaks.

Heron Pinot Noir California 2016 Heron Pinot Noir California 2016

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.

R8 Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon  California 2014 R8 Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon  California 2014

R8 stands for Runway 8 at the Sonoma County airport, where this fine value winery is located (all the founders like to fly, too).  The 2014 R8 Cabernet is sourced from vineyards up and down California's North Coast and reflects the best of the great 2014 harvest:  plenty of ripe fruit and a plush and silky texture.  It serves up great aromas of black currant, black cherry, milk chocolate and spice.  It's fleshy and rich on the palate with more classic Cab currant fruit, a nice dose of chocolate and spice, and fine, food friendly, tannins.  A great party or casual dinner Cabernet that delivers a touch of extra class on the sneaky long finish.  Highly recommended!

Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2015 375ml Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2015 375ml

A ripe but restrained style of Chardonnay from one of California's coolest growing areas. A fun dinner or pre-dinner treat!

"Aged in French oak barrels, 25% of them new, for 16 months. Limpid yellow. Potent, mineral-accented tropical and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and a sexy floral overtone. Taut, minerally and delineated on the palate, which displays juicy pear, tangerine and pineapple flavors that become deeper with air. Concentrated yet lively as well, closing taut and very long, leaving dusty mineral and citrus pith notes behind."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"Opening with exuberant white peach, lemon curd and grapefruit notes with suggestions of marzipan and crushed stones, the medium-bodied 2015 Chardonnay Estate delivers refreshing citrus and minerally flavors with a racy acid line and good length."Wine Advocate 90 points

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Product #31842 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014

As always, an amazing amount of pure, no-oak, Chardonnnay for the money.

"The highlight in this range from Foxglove, the 2014 Chardonnay packs a serious punch for the money. Bright, juicy and exuberant, the Foxglove Chardonnay will thrill readers looking for a budget-priced Chardonnay. Lemon peel, white flowers and mint meld together in a rich, beautifully layered Chardonnay long on class. Aging in steel and blocked malolactic fermentation keep the flavors bright, but there is no shortage of depth or intensity. This is a fabulous wine, especially considering its modest price." Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

"Made by some of the best Chardonnay winemakers in California, Jim and Bob Varner, the value-priced 2014 Chardonnay released under the Foxglove label sports a light gold color to go with exotic notes of pineapples, melon, citrus blossom, spice and hints of green herbs. Supple, forward and straight-up delicious on the palate, with no hard edges and a clean, classy profile, it's a steal at the price and will drink nicely for a year or three."Wine Advocate 90 points

Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee XI NV Product #33290 (In Stock)
Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee XI NV Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee XI NV

Winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson makes some serious California heritage blends under his Bedrock Wine Co. label.  The Whole Shebang applies the same careful winemaking approach to fruit he buys across California with the sole goal of having a little fun.

"The informing impulse behind Shebang is to create a wine that is long on deliciousness and low on pretense. This is done by vinifying the wines with the same care and love as the higher end Bedrock wines- picking at respectable sugar levels (not too high!), using only native yeast fermentations, and a trace of good French oak to round things out. Mostly Zinfandel blended with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Alicante Bouchet, Grenache, Syrah, Alicante Bouchet, Grenache, Syrah, Barbera and a touch of whites for aromatics."  Winemaker Note

Egret Chardonnay Sonoma County 2015 Product #32782 (In Stock)
Egret Chardonnay Sonoma County 2015 Egret Chardonnay Sonoma County 2015

A California Chardonnay showing upper-$20s quality and character at a price nicely below that!  Egret comes from Carneros-based Bonneau Vineyards, and most of the fruit is from their home vineyard there.  About 25% of the wine ages in barrel (used) and the rest in tank, allowing 2015's generous, ripe, pear peach, and citrus fruit to shine through. 

The texture - feeling rich, creamy and a bit spicy - is exceptional at this price point, as is the satisfyingly ripe and juicy pear fruit.  An attractive squirt of fresh orange lifts the long, spicy, finish.  Really delicious for sipping and parties and a great companion for roasted poultry and rich shellfish.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 Product #32461 (In Stock)
Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016

The folks at Talley have really upped their game with the 2016 Bishop's Peak Chardonnay.  All of the fruit comes from the famous  Oliver's Vineyard (the Talley version of this sells for $50), blending a bit of barrel fermented juice from the big wine into the stainless steel base.  Lovely aromas of lemon, white peach and jasmine lead to flavors of creamy orange, juicy pear and lime zest.  Crisp and refreshing with a touch of chalk at the end.  An outstanding value. 

"(raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels) Limpid yellow. Fresh pear, melon, orange zest and a hint of chamomile on the nose; a subtle hint of leesiness emerges slowly. Juicy and round on the palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors accented by a smoky nuance. Silky and focused on the finish, which shows good lift, spicy cut, and very good, floral-driven persistence." Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points
