2010 Montechiara Amarone   | Public Pending Approval

Seriously, when was last time you saw a quality bottle of Amarone at this price? Thanks to our Italian wine buyer Greg, we were able to secure the lowest price ever on this staff favorite Amarone!! I love the complex flavor and rich and smooth mouthfeel on this wine, and how well it pairs with stewed meat dishes! If you haven't tried this bottle yet, it's time to grab one!

2010 Mercedes Eguren Cabernet Sauvignon Vino de la Tierra de Castilla   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-24-2014
Simply put, the best value Cabernet for this holiday season. Juicy, fruity and easy-drinking, this is a great choice for holiday parties or to have at home as your everyday Cabernet! Who said you can't find a good bottle of Cabernet for under 10 bucks?

2012 Cave de Rasteau "Dame Victoria" Rasteau   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-24-2014
Easily one of the best quality-to-value Rhone reds we have! Rasteau was considered just part of the bigger "Cote Du Rhone" appellation until 2010, when they were finally recognized for producing a higher quality blend and were allowed to put "Rasteau" on their label. Super versatile when it comes to food pairing, with juicy, bright aromas and a slight peppery finish, this is the perfect wine for pork tenderloin or BBQ chicken!

2012 Robert Craig Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-24-2014
Great year, great producer: Robert Craig has always been my go-to for a classic, full-bodied California Cabernet. At $39.99 it definitely out perform most other Cabs at the same price point. Will improve with some time, be sure to give it a nice decant if you want to enjoy it now.

Ariston Aspasie "Brut Prestige" Champagne (1.5L)   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-24-2014
Fine, steady beads. Toasty profile with a lot of bass. I see it as perhaps a more affordable version of NV Krug. I suspect that the color of the label is a subtle nod to this. Try with some grilled crostinis or other toasty or rich appetizers.

2012 Tongue In Groove "The Mound Vineyard" Riesling Waipara Valley  
Review Date: 11-23-2014
An excellent NZ Riesling with a gold straw color. Its musky, apricot nose gives way to a generous body of sharp stone fruit, white flower, and honey flavors.

2012 Tongue In Groove "Clayvin Vineyard" Pinot Noir Marlborough  
Review Date: 11-23-2014
A rich nose of earth and raspberry gives way to red fruit and fig flavors. This Marlborough beauty has many layers of fruit complexity and reminds me of an elegant Sonoma Pinot from the best of vintages, albeit a little more racy and edgy than most domestic Pinots can get.

2012 Mount Edward Estate "Morrison Vineyard" Pinot Noir Lowburn Central Otago  
Review Date: 11-23-2014
Any fan of Pinot will love this bottle--it's one of the more well-rounded and delicious Pinots we've brought in from NZ. A light body of blackberry fruit notes is held up by subtle cinnamon and leather flavors. The finish is very long, full of the understated earthy tones one expects from a real Pinot of this caliber.

2012 Tongue In Groove "Cabal / Smith Vineyard" Pinot Noir Waipara Valley   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-23-2014
Bright crunchy red fruit--cranberry, cherry and strawberry with medium-plus acidity. Zippy acid and fleshy fruit make this Pinot hard not to love!

2013 Savage "White" Western Cape   | Public Pending Approval

Very skillfully crafted wine. Containing elements of both subtle minerality and textural power / intensity. As good as this is now, I suspect it will age like great white Bordeaux. Very serious wine of depth and intensity.
Drink from 2014 to 2024

2007 Reinhold Haart Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-21-2014
What an impressive Riesling! It’s starting to come into its age by developing beautiful aromatics of petrol, honey, and orange blossom. While it does have the typical light body of the Mosel, it’s light without being thin and shows richness and complexity. The palate provide bright acidity, lemon zest, nectarine and white peach notes. This medium-sweet style can be admired on its own or paired exceptionally with spicy foods or dessert.

2012 Waits-Mast "Nash Mill" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-20-2014
Red cherry, red rose, sandalwood and red currant. Medium plus acidity and medium, fine tannin. Elegant and drinkable, I simply love this wine!

2012 Zepaltas "Clay Wheels" Rhone Blend   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-20-2014
Former pro-skater Ryan Zepaltas really brings it with this juicy, drinkable red blend. Grenache, Syrah & Carignan. Plum, cherry, and currant with medium plus acidity. A fun wine for every day drinking!

Review Date: 11-20-2014
Strawberry, thyme, red cherry, and rose leap out of this wine. Medium plus acidity with fine, easy tannin. Elegant and polished, a stunning example of Central Otago Bannockburn Pinot Noir. Love it!

2012 Tongue In Groove "Clayvin Vineyard" Pinot Noir Marlborough   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 11-20-2014
A sexy little find from our friends at Tongue & Groove, this wine shows black currant, red cherry, and cranberry with an underlying minerality, medium plus acidity and fine tannin. Beautifully balanced and elegant. Love it!
