Alicats Viognier “Gimelli Vineyards” Cienega Valley 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Brilliant pale straw color. The nose is incredibly fragrant and well-defined offering scents of ripe apricot, peach, pineapple, and spring flowers with a touch of honey. The palate equals the generosity of the nose while being crisper with a generous dose of citrus that envelops the ripe fruit core. Perfectly balanced with complex fruit and mineral flavors that finish with a blast of ginger. This is what Viognier should be.
Beronia Barricas 198 “Reserva” Rioja (DOCa) 2004 (Spain)FEATURED
Deep, rich garnet red color with no signs of its advancing years. The nose is wonderfully complex and with scents of red and black fruits, with notes of rich, sour cherries, forest floor, plum, dark chocolate, allspice, clove, and hints of cardamon. The palate fulfills the promise of the nose delivering ripe and semi-tart fruit with waves of supporting earth, spice, and oak notes. Ideally balanced with great length and soft, integrated tannins. We really can’t find a single thing to quibble about. It’s perfect.
Biltmore Estate Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Deep ruby to cherry red color. The nose is rich with the scents of ripe cherry and red berries with accents of vanilla, pepper, and clove. The palate fully agrees with the nose delivering a full-throttle Pinot that defies the boundaries of Pinot Noir’s grip and fruit intensity. It becomes a bit hot on the finish with rising oak notes as well. This is a Pinot for those seeking a boldly styled California Pinot.
Bogle “Essential Red” California 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Deep, bright ruby red color. The nose is filled with the scents of freshly crushed red and black berries with hints of sweet herbs, mineral, allspice, vanilla, and oak. The palate is in full agreement delivering a lush but incredibly well balanced fruit-driven core. This blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet, and Petite Sirah does not conform to any Old World model but who cares! It’s delicious and at $11 it’s a tremendous value.
Bray Vineyards Barbera Rosato Shenandoah Valley 2008 (USA)FEATURED
Bright, deep pink veering toward red. The nose is filled with the scents of freshly crushed blackberries, tart cherries, and wild strawberries with accents of cranberry and mineral. The palate fully concurs with the nose offering an explosion of ripe and tart berries with layers of natural acidity and sweet lavender and complimenting red grapefruit. Generous while ideally proportioned inviting each new sip. Perfect with fish, fowl, or just a glass.
Ch. de Lisennes “Cuvee Traditon” Bordeaux Superieur 2005 (France)FEATURED
Dark, inky ruby red with purple highlights. The nose reveals a classic Bordeaux aromatic profile offering scents of blackberry and cassis with hints of plum, mineral, pencil lead, and oak. The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich core of concentrated black fruit flavors flanked by earth and sexy brown spices. Ideally balanced with a well proportioned dose of acidity. It finishes gently with trailing oak and vanilla. This wine offers a great opportunity to enjoy the great 2005 vintage without the nearly obligatory wallet bleed. A Best Buy.
Coastline Merlot Paso Robles 2008 (USA)FEATURED
Deep, dark ruby red color. The nose is filled with the scent of dense red cherry with accents of brown baking spice, black pepper, dried herbs, and touches of oak. The palate is on par with the multilayered nose delivering a well-balanced fruit attack with complimenting notes of fennel, earth, and sandalwood. This is a super Merlot for the money filled with fruit and nuance with great balance. A Best Buy.
Coastline Pinot Grigio Monterey 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Brilliant pale straw color. The nose is ultra fresh with crisp green apple, pear, white peach, lemon, and green melon with hints of mineral, and grapefruit zest.

When we consider the price we just say wow as this wine delivers far more of the positive attributes of Pinot Grigio than most of its contemporaries. Ideally balanced with a crisp finish.
Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2007 (USA)FEATURED
Deep, dark garnet red color. The nose is simply beautiful offering scents of blackberry, cherry, cassis, and plum with accents of allspice, nutmeg, cocoa, black pepper, and vanilla tinged oak. The palate echoes the nose delivering a lush, silky fruit core that builds and builds with layers of spice and oak. Incredibly supple while ideally balanced with soft, chewy tannins and long trailing spice and oak notes mingling with the dense black fruit. A poster child of Napa mountain Cabernet.
Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2009 (USA)FEATURED
Deep ruby red veering toward black being entirely opaque. The aromatics are redolent of vintages past for this great wine offering scents of freshly crushed black fruits with red fruit in support. Accents of brown baking spices, pine cone, dark chocolate, and vanilla tinged oak round out the aromatics. The palate is as dense and full as the nose would suggest offering a broad core of ripe, fresh fruit with flanking notes of spice and oak. Ideally balanced with great length and firm but approachable tannins. Another classic.
