2009 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 1-27-2015
The Baricci Brunello, as evidenced by the numerous comments below, is a wine the staff always stocks up on! Every vintage Baricci makes consistently fantastic wine. The 2009, with a quick decant, is surprisingly approachable in its youth. Dusty earth, dark red fruits, and silky tannins make for an incredible wine.

2010 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero
Review Date: 1-26-2015
The Lambuena wines have been here for almost a year now, but I just took a bottle home to refresh the memory. Wow, this 2010 Crianza is stunning! Juicy black cherry, blackberry and casis fruit, with nice acidity and tanin to round out this beautifully balanced wine. All for $20! Pair with braised meats and bbq!

2012 Ferrero Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 1-26-2015
Another delicious 2012 Rosso, the Ferrero is ready to drink now with a little decant or will lay down for a couple years. Great black cherry and strawberry fruit with classic Montalcino earthiness.

2010 Bois-Malot, Bordeaux Supérieur
Review Date: 1-26-2015
Grab this wine while it lasts!!! This 2010 Bordeaux benefits greatly from the magnificent 2010 vintage. Pure red fruit, mineral driven mid palate with medium tanin give this wine fantastic structure. Top Value!

2012 Tenuta di Sesta Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 1-26-2015
These 2012 Rosso's are drinking incredibly well right now and the Tenuta Di Sesta is no exception! Fresh cherry/strawberry fruit, a bit of spice, and mellow, coating tanins round out this great wine. Pair with your favorite braised meats!

2013 Patient Cottat "Le Grand Caillou" Sauvignon Blanc
Review Date: 1-8-2015
Stellar as always, this wine again over-delivers for the price. Bright tropical fruit balanced by great acid and mineral notes that bring the wine together beautifully. Stock up!

2009 Malmaison, Moulis-en-Médoc
Review Date: 12-1-2014
An amazing vintage from vineyards managed by the Rothschild family helps make the 2009 Malmaison Moulis a top Bordeaux deal! Pure, rich fruit, great spice, and a long finish. Beautiful wine that should not be missed!

2013 Talley/K&L Wine Merchants Edna Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 11-2-2014
The Chardonnay of the holiday season! This chardonnay, blended from five select barrels off the Oliver's vineyard, is drinking incredibly well right now! Such great focus, balance, and purity of fruit without over-the-top richness, this Talley wine reminded the staff of Chassagne Montrachet! Do not miss it!

2013 Bedrock Wine Company "Ode to Lulu" Rosé
Review Date: 7-17-2014
There is no question Morgan hit a home run with the 2013 Bedrock Rose! Aromatically enticing with notes of fresh picked strawberries and herbal spices with mint, wild raspberry, and watermelon following and the creamy, yet bright, mineral streaked palate. This wine is so focused and texture driven it really is incredible. Plus, it is extremely food friendly to boot! Open a bottle and you will be on your second glass before you know it!

2009 Kenneth Volk Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 5-21-2014
From Star Ranch & Carmody McKnight vineyards. Ripe, but fresh currant and blackberry fruit, vanilla, blueberry, mild tannic finish. Toasty vanilla notes, but not overly sweet. Solid Cab!

2012 Clendenen "Stallion Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Review Date: 5-20-2014
Mineral driven, floral, and full of tropical and citrus fruit. The wine is round on the palate, yet has solid acidity and chalky minerality. Once again, great balance and depth from a Clendenen Family wine.
Top Value!

2007 Clendenen "Le Pip" Santa Maria Valley Nebbiolo
Review Date: 5-20-2014
Domestic Nebbiolo is quite hard to make well; there is a reason we only have two producers! The Le Pip Nebbiolo, full of Bien Naciedo fruit at 1000 ft elevation, is quite the exception! Rich, powerful, and full of tannin (as the varietal is known for), this wine is full of wild cherry, currant, and rose hips. Plenty of structure and depth, with great focus and round tannins, the Pip is a hell of a wine. It is approachable now, but will reward a few more years in the cellar.

2006 Clendenen "Rancho La Cuna" Santa Maria Valley Syrah/Viognier
Review Date: 5-20-2014
The 2005 was a hit among both staff and customers last year, and the 2006 will not disappoint! Very Cote-Rotie like, once again, with a touch of Viognier floral notes complementing bacon fat, peppered jerky, black pepper, and dark red fruit from the Syrah. Deliciously rich and savory wine that is approachable now but will drink for quite a few years to come!

2009 Ici/La-Bas "Les Reveles-Elke Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 5-20-2014
Ripe cherry, raspberry, oak toast on the nose. The palate is quite savory, full of spicebox, wild red fruit, and underbrush. Medium weight, with a long, earthy finish. Anderson Valley fruit really shows here!
