2011 Fromm "La Strada" Pinot Noir Marlborough
Review Date: 4-1-2015
Fromm has been crushing it with their Pinot Noir the last couple vintages! Fresh red fruit and rose petal aromatics, vibrant and spicy mid palate, pure fruit without being rich or cloying, and fine tannins on the finish. Every sip continued to impress with overall vibrancy and balance. Outstanding stuff!

2011 Willowbrook "Altes Vineyard" Sonoma County Syrah
Review Date: 3-30-2015
We don't receive the Willowbrook wines too often, but when we do they never fail to over-deliver! For $10, you are getting pure, delicious Syrah from a great Sonoma Valley site. Bacon fat, cracked black pepper, and a touch of smoke as soon as the cork is pulled. Pure black fruit, rich but not at all sweet, and savory notes with great balance. Dollar for dollar, this may be the best deal in the store right now!

2013 Rickshaw California Pinot Noir
Review Date: 3-2-2015
The Banshee guys are killing it with the fruit sources for these pinots! Rich, ripe cherry and raspberry fruit, a touch of earth, and just enough acid to keep it from getting too sweet. Great party wine!

2012 Olema Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 3-2-2015
This second offering from Amici Cellars is a steal year after year! Beautiful Sonoma County fruit with a touch of new French oak. Raspberry, casic, mocha, vanilla, and a clean, softly tanic finish. Classic Sonoma Cabernet!

2013 Bench Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 3-2-2015
It's back! The Bench has been a customer favorite over the last couple vintages. Getting great Sonoma fruit at a $20 price tag is tough to do, and this Pinot really delivers. Pure red fruit, cola notes, some baking spice and a well integrated French Oak finish.

2012 Tongue In Groove "Cabal Vineyard" Pinot Noir Waipara Valley
Review Date: 3-2-2015
This beautfiul Pinot is so light and spicy, yet sneaky powerful and complex. Driving, super fresh red fruits, forest floor, rose petal, dried herbs, and zesty acidity. Flat out incredible Pinot Noir from one of our favorite new wineries!

2012 Ellero "Pisa Terrace" Pinot Noir Central Otago
Review Date: 3-2-2015
This is a slightly darker fruited Pinot Noir, full of dark raspberry, black cherry and currant, with great spice (30% whole cluster) and floral components. Great acidity keeps the wine fresh and vibrant, while the fine tanin of the finish really lends great depth. This is a complex pinot that is amazing now and will greatly reward a few years of patience!

Marietta "Old Vine Red-Lot #62" Red Blend
Review Date: 2-25-2015
This Red Blend from Marietta truly over delivers year after year. Pure, fresh, and wild berry fruit with a hint of earth and spice. Rich and juicy, but never sweet, this wine can please a crowd or your pickiest friend! With the quality of fruit going into the blend, it is almost impossible to beat at the under $15 price tag.

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!

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!
