Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015 Product #32005 (In Stock)
Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015 Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015

The family behind Glenbrook winery has been growing grapes and making wine in California for five generations.  And, if this Chardonnay is any evidence, it doesn’t appear that they’ve changed much since they first started!  Their 2015 Chardonnay is a throwback to the days when “rich” and “buttery” we words of praise for California Chard.  And the modest price and remarkably modest alcohol levels (just 13.0%!) are throwbacks to the days when all anyone cared about was making a tasty bottle of wine to be drunk with delight and for fun.

Give a glass a swirl and you’ll have no trouble finding the big aromas of orchard fruits and buttered popcorn with accents of hazelnut, caramel, and truffle.  Take a sip and you’ll love the mouth-coating, smooth, texture and bold flavors of ripe apple and pineapple fruit cloaked in rich butter and caramel.  Swallow and wait for it:  the deep flavors flow onto a surprisingly fresh finish where fruit and salty butter flavors linger.  Rich enough to serve with scallops or lobster if you like, but the fresh, buttery, flavors are pretty darn fun on their own.

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.

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

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.

Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee X NV Product #32164 (In Stock)
Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee X NV Bedrock Wine Co The Whole Shebang Cuvee X NV

As The New York Times recently wrote, "The Shebang series, moderately priced wines from Morgan Twain-Peterson’s excellent Bedrock Wine Company, offers modern versions of California field blends. This spicy, gutsy wine comes from multiple vineyards and appellations, includes many grapes (with probably a lot of zinfandel and carignan), and mixes several vintages. The result is a delicious, long-lasting red with flavors of licorice, herbs and red and black fruits."

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 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.

Porch Pounder Pinot Noir Red Blend 4pk 12oz Cans Product #32024 (In Stock)
Porch Pounder Pinot Noir Red Blend 4pk 12oz Cans Porch Pounder Pinot Noir Red Blend 4pk 12oz Cans

Ok, so wine in 12oz cans (about half a bottle) is a pretty cool idea and will make it far easier for you to enjoy vino when you're out and about this Spring and Summer.  But that's just an add on benefit here - this is a KILLER red blend that will appeal to everyone from Merlot to Belle Glos/ Meomi Pinot Noir fans.  We don't know the precise blend, but it starts with the kind of ultra-rich, deeply fruited, Pinot Noir the Wagner family has made famous.  Other grapes - perhaps Cab and Syrah? - add density and a dark, spicy, complexity.  A touch of oak adds a vanilla note and gives this a velvety smooth texture.  Fruit-filled and flashy, for sure, but dry and clean on the spicy finish.  If you like the can idea, buy this. If you don't, then buy it anyway and just use a glass.  It's that good.

Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2014 Product #32165 (In Stock)
Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2014 Bedrock Wine Co Old Vine Zinfandel 2014

A stunner from one of California's most important Zinfandel estates.

"The 2014 Old Vine Zinfandel is deep, rich and luscious, with plenty of up-front fruit and tons of appeal. More of a field blend than a true Zinfandel, the 2014 is soft and forward, with expressive red-fleshed fruit, bright acidity and terrific overall balance. The Old Vine is 77% Zinfandel and a generous 23% mixed blacks. Best of all, the Old Vine Zinfandel is a fabulous value."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"The 2014 Zinfandel Old Vines is what Morgan Twain-Peterson calls “the gateway drug to Bedrock.” It is a cross-AVA blend of lots culled from his other wines and blended. The 2014 is largely Zinfandel, but with some obscure mixed black varietals thrown in for added complexity. It is an outstanding, full-throttle wine with a Mediterranean personality, with loads of Provençal herbs, briary black raspberry and black cherry fruits, dusty loaminess, a lush, full-bodied mouthfeel and dark ruby/purple-tinged color. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Plush and jammy, but well-focused, with gobs of fruit and flavors of wild berry, licorice and smoky pepper. Drink now through 2026. 5,000 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points
