2013 Lagoon Hill Sauvignon Blanc Martinborough   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 3-25-2015
Exceptional value thanks to our importer direct deal. Single vineyard, organically farmed, Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc. A super easy drinking style with juicy ripe citrus, passionfruit, fresh cut herbs and wet stone. Round juicy texture and refreshing ripe acidity. Such a great summer wine, stock up now while it lasts at this crazy good price!
Top Value!

2012 Vincent Girardin St-Aubin 1er Cru "Murgers Dent de Chien"  
Review Date: 3-24-2015
This rich and delicious Saint Aubin comes from one of my favorite vineyards in Burgundy. It is located just over the hill from Chevalier Montrachet, and cheek by jowl with Puligny-Montrachet Champs Gain 1er Cru. If this said Puligny 1er Cru on the label it would sell for twice the price. This is rich and focused, long on the palate and quite delicious. Don't miss it!

2012 Hirsch "San Andreas Fault" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir  
Review Date: 3-24-2015
I have been waiting a long time for this wine to be released, and of course, it wasn't in vain. Bright red fruit with layers of rose petals, cinnamon, forest floor and herbs. Acidity is nicely integrated and the tannins are apparent. After a couple of hours in a decanter, the wine opens up beautifully and shows incredibly. If you're patient, several years in your cellar will be even better.

2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay  
Review Date: 3-24-2015
The former 2nd label of Romabauer, this wine continues in that rich, ripe style with hints of oak. If a bigger Chardonnay is what you like, this wine over-delivers.

2012 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir  
Review Date: 3-24-2015
A beautiful vintage for the Flowers Sonoma Coast. Light bodied with a candied red fruit, cola, forest floor and a hint of cinnamon. The wine has integrated acid and great length.

2013 Rochioli "Estate" Russian River Valley Chardonnay  
Review Date: 3-24-2015
Rochioli has been a Russian River Valley legend for many years. Originally bought in 1953 by Joe Rochioli Sr., the 135 acres ranch at that time was called Fenton Acres. Originally planted to many of the jug wine varietals like French Colombard and Napa Gamay. Joe Sr and Joe Jr planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc in 1959. The Sauvignon Blanc was successful and the original plantings still produce grapes today. The Cabernet Sauvignon didn't work very well and Joe Jr decided to plant Pinot Noir in 1968. Shortly after, Chardonnay was planted and as they say, "The rest is history". The first Rochioli wine was released in 1987 and from day one has been known for great wines. Today, third generation Tom Rochioli is the winemaker and continues the work that his Grandfather and Father did before him.

Toasting, oaky aromas. After decanting the wine opens up to a red fruit forward beauty.

This property has been neglected by us in the past-our mistake. The 2005 has great terroir on the nose and palate. Plenty of structure for the cellar and a sweet middle fruit.

One of our favorite vintages and Latour made a great one. If you can’t afford the new releases, try this one. Elegance mixed with power.

A sleeper wine that we neglected in its youth. I do not like the label, but inside the bottle it is exceptional.
