Chateau Belle-Vue

2016 Haut Medoc


93 Jeb Dunnuck

From Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Chateau Belle-Vue is one awesome Haut-Médoc as well as an incredible value. Deeply colored, with a powerful bouquet of crème de cassis, black cherries, leafy herbs, and earth, it’s medium to full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins and fabulous balance. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 20% Petit Verdot, aged in 30% new French oak, it’s almost too good to be true and should be snatched up by readers.
~Matt's TOP Pick~
Pursued By Bear

2016 Columbia Valley

Red Wine


The 2016 Bear Cub is a loving return to the early style of our flagship wine, Pursued by Bear Cabernet Sauvignon. Like those earlier vintages, the Cub is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominate wine blended with a small percentage of Syrah to enhance the mid-palate. Opens with aromas of black cherry and cola leading into flavors of blueberry pie and blackberries.

Elio Altare

2018 Langhe


91 Wine Advocate

From Wine Advocate: This is an easy and approachable wine to pair with pasta or chicken roast. The Elio Altare 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo is a lean and streamlined expression with enough textural fiber to support aromas of wild cherry, rose, and fresh violet. The wine unfolds easily and with simplicity to refresh the palate and add just enough complexity to brighten up your home-cooked meal. Best of all, you get great value from the celebrated Elio Altare estate. ~Mark's TOP Pick~



The Paring

2017 Santa Ynez


94 Jeb Dunnuck

From Jeb Dunnuck:  A blend of 94% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah, and a splash of Viognier, the 2017 Syrah gives up a terrific bouquet of blackberries, plums, ground pepper, and meaty, earthy notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, plump, sexy style on the palate. It's beautifully done and a stunning value. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years or so. Readers looking for a great Syrah at a great price should snatch this up.

2017 Santa Lucia Highlands



WOW! Hahn knocks it out of the park with this tasty, juicy domestic Grenache! Loads of flavors here, pair this with burgers, Brats and grilled veggies! Scents of baking spices and black plums greet the nose of this complex red as spiced rhubarb and black cherry go wide and generous alongside mid-palate notes of cinnamon candy. Accompanied by good grip, balanced acidity, and fine-grained tannins, the texture is superb, and the lifting finish of lavender is a gift.


Juan Gil

2018 Jumilla


Red Blend

 Brand new release from Juan Gil!
Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell, this wine way over-delivers for the price!
Deep purple in color, the wine shows luscious aromas of ripe black and red fruit combined with exotic spices. Juan Gil Red Blend is rich and voluptuous on the palate with incredible balance, finesse and power.

2018 Russian River Valley

Pinot Noir


Our customers loved the Juggernaut Cabernet Sauvignon (Sold out) and believe us, you are going to love this Pinot Noir as well. Rare to find any Pinot Noir that has Russian River as the appellation with an under $15 price tag. This is big, flavorful Russian River Pinot that way over delivers! Persistent red cherry, berry and floral notes with subtle spice on the long, flavorful finish.
