Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Product #31862 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015

If you're looking for subtle, elegant, sophisticated California Cabernet...then look elsewhere.  Because this is rowdy, pumped up, boldly fruited, vanilla and chocolate-laced Cab with French oak spice and a finish as plump as a feather pillow.  Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela created the Rubus label so he could find under-appreciated fruit in great growing regions and turn it into crowd-pleasing wines a wallet-delighting prices.  This is the best we've tasted in the series, with good heft (at just 13.5% abv) and oodles of chocolate-covered cherry fruit and sweet oak spice.  Soft enough to sip at a casual cookout, bold enough to enjoy with burgers, steaks or lamb, and affordable enough to share with a crowd.

Roblar Chardonnay California 2015 Product #32551 (In Stock)
Roblar Chardonnay California 2015 Roblar Chardonnay California 2015

This well-respected Sta. Rita Hills estate turns out a glorious value Chardonnay from fruit grown in cooler slices of Lodi.  Rich, generous, aromas of baked apple, ripe pear, sweet spice lead to a round, nicely textured, mouthful of spiced orchard fruit with a just right touch of caramel.  There's fine depth and amplitude to the flavor and the broad, palate-coating, finish of baked pear, french butter and spice.  The texture and depth here suggest a nicely oaked $30 Carneros Chardonnay, but there's no oak and only one-third the cost!  A great party wine (balanced nicely at 13.5%) and fine match for poultry, mushrooms and cream sauces.  Outstanding value!

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

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.

Angeline Chardonnay Reserve 2016 Product #31955 (In Stock)
Angeline Chardonnay Reserve 2016 Angeline Chardonnay Reserve 2016

Here's a spicy Chardonnay value drawn from sites in Santa Barbara, coastal Mendocino, and the Russian River Valley.  You'll taste the quality of 2016's Chardonnay harvest here in the form of ripe pear, juicy peach, and tangy pineapple fruit.  Six months in 30% new oak barrels adds creaminess to the texture and a generous does of spice.  Everything comes together on the bold finish where green apple and spiced pear flavors sail along nicely.  Over-delivers for the money.

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2016 Product #32053 (In Stock)
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.

Second release of this powerhouse from Joe Wagner of Belle Glos fame.  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.

Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2014 Product #31853 (In Stock)
Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2014 Cinnabar Mercury Rising 2014

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.

Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2015 Product #32567 (In Stock)
Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2015 Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

An utterly delicious wine to rekindle your love of Zin; mainly from 3 vineyards planted in 1888. 90% Zinfandel plus Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Carignan, Mataro and others.

"The reds start with the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine, which comes from many different old-vine vineyards largely based around three farms in Sonoma planted in 1888, 1896 and 1905. In addition, there is a kitchen-sink blend of other old-vine sites as well. Peterson guesses that the average age of the material in the blend is at least 80 years. The bend is 90% Zinfandel and the rest Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Carignan, Mataro and a few other eccentric black varieties. This delicious wine shows terrific fruit, loads of steak tartare, ground pepper, black raspberry and blackberry fruits, licorice, creosote and an Amarone-like character. It is dense, full-bodied, vibrant and energized. Drink it over the next 5-6 years if you can wait that long."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Rich and supple, this is an explosion of pure, decadent fruit. Floral huckleberry and Chinese five-spice powder aromas open to layered blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2026."Wine Spectator 93 points
