2012 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 04-28-2015
Duckhorn is known for Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc but the Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the tops in Napa Valley for 2012. Big bold Cabernet with ripe blue and red fruit, vanilla, cedar, cocoa and spice. A Cabernet for all Napa Valley fans.

2013 Von Strasser "Rudy" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 04-22-2015
A favorite wine for our customers, the 2013 continues a great run of beautifully made wines. A nice combination of floor ripeness with mountain backbone. Medium body, extracted dark fruits with generous spice and a hint of vanilla and cedar. No doubt one of the great values in Napa Valley Cabernet.

Drappier "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 04-15-2015
A rich, toasty Champagne heavy with stone fruit and lively, tight bubbles. The 80% Pinot Noir shows itself with lively hints of red fruit and spice. Very well balanced with a creamy mid-palate and great length. One heck of a treat for $39.99.

2012 Continuum Oakville Bordeaux Blend
Review Date: 04-15-2015
The Continuum is the top wine from the Tim Mondavi family of wines. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. 100% grown on their Pritchard Hill estate. Layers of black fruit tightly wound with new oak and vanilla. Opulence is the word here.

Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut Sparkling Wine
Review Date: 04-01-2015
One of the finest sparkling wines in the world. Made with great care and precision by winemaker/General Manager Arnaud Weyrich. A leaner style of sparkling wine with a minerality and depth punctuated by a lush mid palate. Approximately 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir. Aged a minimum of two years on the yeast. A tasty sparkling for any occasion.

2012 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Review Date: 03-10-2015
The amazing 2012 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Red Wine has just arrived and we couldn't be happier. The wine is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 4% Malbec. The wine is bold and vibrant with incredible purity of fruit. Black and blue fruit with hints of red berry, cassis, graphite and a touch of menthol. Cedar and vanilla wrap around the wine with great fervor. Tannins are very apparent but soft enough to approach this wine in the next couple of years.

2012 Urbanite Cellars California Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 03-10-2015
Carlos Moya of Vinos Unico continues his pursuit of great California wines at fantastic prices. The man who gave you Redart and Amplio now gives you a delicious 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright dark fruit balanced with hints of cedar and vanilla. A true bargain in California Cabernet Sauvignon.

2012 Lyeth Sonoma County Meritage
Review Date: 02-24-2015
Year after year, this Cabernet based wine beats most wines in this price category in quality. Vibrant black and blue fruit wrapped by soft tannin, spice and just touches of Mocha and cedar. Lyeth was founded over 25 years ago and now is part of the BOISSET FAMILY ESTATES.
