Paydirt

2017 Paso Robles
GOING FOR BROKE

Zinfandel

Last year's bottling was a huge hit in our store and we expect you will like this just as much as they have produced back to back winners!
The nose is filled with ripe blackberries, smoked plum, orange relish, cranberry, blueberry compote, white pepper, and dark chocolate. The palate is round, juicy, and bursting with freshness and concentrated red and dark fruit components. The finish is persistent, layered and vibrant, with a touch of spice. ~Brian's Top Pick~

Les Vignes de Bila Haut

By M. Chapoutier

2016 Cotes du Roussillon

Blanc

90 Wine Spectator
BEST BUY- Wine Spectator

One of the Top Values of the Year (2018) from Wine Spectator. Don't hesitate to stock up on this in anticipation of warmer days ahead. This will make for great Spring and Summer sipping.
Racy, vibrant aromas and flavors of lime, salty minerality and white peach. Medium-bodied, seamless and incredibly drinkable, it’s absolutely worth buying. A white blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne.
 

Chateau Thivin

2017
Brouilly
Reverdon

Beaujolais

93 Wine Advocate

It is no surprise that Chateau Thivin is the benchmark domaine of the Cote de Brouilly; everything about it is exceptional. Built in the fifteenth century on an ancient volcano which juts out steeply into the valley below, Thivin is the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly.
This is Beaujolais at its very best. Lovely aromas of blackberries, cassis, plums and potpourri. Bright and juicy!

Sean Minor

2017 California

Pinot Noir

 

We always seem to find something from this producer that offers exceptional value! The Sean Minor Chardonnay already sells like crazy in our store so it will be no surprise at all if this takes off sooner than later.
The wine displays aromas of strawberry, cherry cola and raspberry fruit. On the palate, the Pinot offers bright and approachable flavors of cherry and strawberry combined with subtle layers of spice. The bright acidity combined with sweet oak results in a lingering finish.

 

True Myth

2016 Paso Robles

Cabernet Sauvignon

Pure Paso Robles, this rich yet smooth Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with elegant aromas of blackberry, blueberry, pepper and cassis which lead to flavors of dark red fruits with hints of cedar spice, cocoa powder and caramelized oak. These persistent flavors create a long lingering finish. While very accessible now, this wine will continue to evolve nicely for years to come.

Melville

2015 Sta. Rita Hills

Pinot Noir

90 Jeb Dunnuck

From Jeb Dunnuck: The 2015 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is the largest production cuvée of the estate and it's a year in, year out value. The 2015 is a spice-filled, cherry, and forest floor-scented effort that has medium-bodied depth and richness, the focused style of the vintage, and a good finish. It's showing slightly better than this time last year and should age gracefully going forward.

 

 

 

Bocelli

2015 Toscana
Tenor

Red Blend

For nearly three centuries, the Bocelli family has made classic Italian wines on their small estate in Tuscany. To this day, Edi Bocelli, aka “Mamma”, still enjoys working in the fields, carefully hand-tying vines. Cinzia and Alberto Bocelli manage the azienda, and with the help of Andrea Bocelli, welcome visitors from around the world to taste their exceptional wines. A very tasty, versatile blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot. Bright cherry, cassis, cocoa, and a hint of sage on the smooth finsh.

Domaine de la Solitude

2016

Chateauneuf du Pape

Rouge

93 Wine Advocate

From Wine Advocate: Savory notes of clove and leather add nuance to the rich fruit of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape. It's full-bodied, creamy, lush, plump with red berries and stone fruit and remains fresh and fruit-driven through the long finish. It should drink well for a decade or more.
 

Markus Molitor

2016 Mosel

UZIGER WURZGARTEN
KABINETT WEISSKAPSEL

Riesling

92+ Wine Advocate

From Wine Advocate: The 2016 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinet is deep and concentrated on the complex, citric and slatey nose but still discreet in its fruit aromas. This is serious Riesling at 10.5% alcohol! Dry but round and intense, with a creamy texture, fine tannins and lush fruit, the Würzgarten has a remarkable mineral expression. The finish, is dense, lush, compact, very fine, well-structured and perfectly balanced.

Tempranillo

#26 in Wine Spec. TOP 100, 2018

94 Wine Spectator

 

From Wine Spectator: Rich and focused, this red delivers ripe fruit flavors of currant and blackberry that mingle with espresso, mineral and licorice notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated and crisp acidity keeps this focused. Concentrated and harmonious. Drink now through 2030.

 

Limerick Lane

2016 Russian River Valley

Zinfandel

95 Vinous
95 Jeb Dunnuck

For those looking for one of the best Zinfandels in the market you can stop looking. This wine has depth and concentration that lifts this wine to a whole different level of the Zinfandel experience.
From Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Zinfandel Russian River Estate is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Plums, sandalwood, Asian spices, and a hint of cigar all flow to a seamless, elegant Zinfandel that shows the class and quality of this vintage. With medium to full-bodied richness and building, fine tannin, it has complexity, texture, and length. Bravo!
