Jean-Jacques Lamoureux "Réserve" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 3-19-2015
What an intensely pretty Champagne! Peach and blood orange waft from the glass, which makes me think of a spring-time sunset. The texture is moussey and very playful and carries flavors of white stone fruit and orange blossom. I'm so happy that this Champagne exists!

2012 Domaine Cyrot-Buthiau Bourgogne Rouge (Maison Dieu)
Review Date: 1-28-2015
I loooove Burgundian Pinot Noirs. I especially love ones that I can get at under $20. Red currants, tangy strawberry, savory earth and lean acidity all meld together to satisfy Pinot cravings. I paired this with a gooey port salut toasted cheese sandwich along side a creamy tomato soup.....SPECTACULAR!!!

2012 Von Strasser "Rudy" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 1-28-2015
"Rudy" is one of my favorite Napa Cabs that we sell. Even though it's his second label to his fantastic line up of Cabernet & Cabernet blends, you won't be disappointed! This wine is all mountain fruit, is rich yet structured and is totally polished. Black currant, cedar, wild herbs all intertwine in a sumptuously textured body. A steal at $20!

2012 Comte Louis de Clermont-Tonnerre (Alain Corcia) Cotes du Rhone Villages Cairanne
Review Date: 1-28-2015
This was the wine that kept me smiling through the crazy Holiday Season! This Rhone is savory & earthy with wonderful herbaceousness, aromas of forest floor and mushroomy umami delights. The fruit is dark and more berry-skinned than berry juice (which I love). I love this wine with hearty cheeses & homemade stew. And due to its layers of savory deliciousness, it's quite satisfying on its own!

2013 Domaine du Tariquet "Classic" Cotes de Gascogne Blanc
Review Date: 1-28-2015
Due to this wine's versatility, it has become one of our best sellers. The Tariquet is full of white stone fruit, fresh pear, yellow citrus and is held all together with a bracing acidity. I'd pair this with grilled seafoods & curried chicken. Great for everyday!

2012 Trimbach Riesling
Review Date: 1-8-2015
When someone is pouring Riesling, I either feel reticent or jazzed. Depending on who's producing it and where it's from, Riesling varies SO MUCH. This little beauty from Alsace is glorious. Upon opening, the nose is sumptuous with orange blossom nectar and lemon zest. Upon tasting, there's white stone fruit, blood orange pith and a lovely high-toned acidity. This Riesling is bone dry and a feast for the senses.

2012 Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The Faust is rich and decadent. Ripe cherries, raspberries, mocha and soft cedar envelop your palate and warm your heart.

Rose petals for miles flanked by briar, bramble and wild spice. I long for this wine.

2010 Château Trillol Corbières
Review Date: 11-20-2014
What an incredibly expressive nose! Crushed rose petals & smokey meaty wildness fly from the glass. The palate is full of dark, rich berries and savory forest floor. Incredible wine for less than $15.

2013 Domaine Lafage "Novellum" Chardonnay Pays d'Oc
Review Date: 11-20-2014
This is a killer Chardonnay for $10.99. It's unconventional and delicious! This is full of ripe stone fruit, fresh tropical notes and is wonderfully dry. It's a fantastic choice for your holiday gatherings!

2013 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina
Review Date: 8-30-2014
I'm in love with this Txakolina! High toned acidity, lime zest, bracing minerality...like licking wet stones from a mountain stream. This is one of the most refreshing wines out there.

2013 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Chardonnay Marlborough
Review Date: 7-18-2014
It takes a lot for a Chardonnay to make my toes curl, and this one does! This New Zealander begins with buttery musk, dried stone fruit, and has a creamy smooth mid-palate. It's followed by a mineral driven chalky finish...what's not to adore?
