Bogle Phantom 2013Phantom, Bogle's mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone. Wild berries, black pepper and hints of juniper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices with a hint of toasty vanilla. On the palate, the entry is explosive, supported by chewy, chalky tannins that will age this wine for decades. The lingering, complex finish leaves one in anticipation of the next sip. Welcome the winery ghost into your home again with this latest vintage…before it vanishes again.
Catena Zapata Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2013The Catena wines are a special assemblage of High Mountain Estate Vineyards. Although we have found that most of the Catena wines are consumed shortly after release, we are pleased to see that they age beautifully for ten to twenty years. Through decades of study and exploration within Mendoza's high altitude mountain terroirs, the Catena family has identified special locations for its Estate vineyards. From the marriage of these historic vineyards emerges a wine of unique character that has natural balance, concentration and a distinct varietal identity.
Riondo Blu ProseccoBlu Prosecco is the best expression of Cantine Riondo's skill in producing fine sparkling wines. Blu presents fresh and intense aromas of pear, peach, wisteria and hints of citrus aromas. It's a perfect balance of acidity. Its concentrated fruit and residual sugar please the palate, creating an inviting union with a lively sparkle that makes this prosecco perfect for every occasion.
Mezza Luna Pink Sparkling RoseMore strawberry than anything else, but there was still a slice of watermelon (unsalted) in the background. It was refreshing and tongue tickling, making you crave another slug…err, sip. Any signs of sweetness were quickly brushed aside by a crisp and dry finish.
Viña Real Reserva 2010Deep Ruby and cherry red, with the lightest hint of a terracotta edge. Good intensity on the nose, with ripe autumn fruits, warm spices and elegant toasty oak. The palate is rich, warming and velvet, with good acidity and noble tannin. The vanilla from the oak is beautifully married with the raspberry fruit of the Tempranillo producing a fine, rich, complex palate and length of finish. The wine is balanced now, but has potential to improve.
Bodega Renacer Punto Final Reserva Malbec 2013Punto Final, meaning "final period" or "full stop," symbolizes the point at which the Bodega Renacer winemaking team has accomplished their common goal: a truly outstanding wine. The grapes for the Punto Final Reserva Malbec are sourced primarily from the Los Patos Vineyard in Perdriel, where the average age of the vines is 80 years. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged for one year in French oak barrels and then six months in bottle before release.
Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by this varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including our Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.
Meiomi Pinot Noir 2015A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir. Meiomi Pinot Noir has a consistent profile of supple tannins, silky texture, and balanced acidity that makes it the perfect wine to enjoy with a wide array of food. It pairs particularly well with tomato-based pasta dishes, thin-crust pizza, grilled lamb, and turkey.
Twenty Bench Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Jigsaw Pinot Noir 2014The unique pieces of the Willamette Valley's distinctive terroir fit seamlessly together in the 2014 Jigsaw Pinot Noir. The aromatic entry yields notes of blackcap raspberry and cacao, and the wine is a deep garnet hue in the glass. On the palate, lush flavors of black cherry and spice are interwoven with an elegant mineral vein. Fine, velveteen tannins and a hint of salted caramel give weight and fullness to a savory mid-palate. The wine finishes long and supple with flavors of sarsaparilla and sweet earth. Giving and ready to drink now, with ample finesse to cellar.
Viña Real Crianza 2011This wine shows shades of medium to deep shiny cherry colour on a purple background. To the nose, intense aromas of ripe fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) stand out, complemented with subtle hints of oak. To the palate, it shows structured and round with a good integration of fruitiness and oakiness. The aftertaste is marked by very well balanced tannins as well as by persistent spicy, toasty and balsamic aromas. A long stay in bottle is the finishing touch to this Rioja Alavesa wine's character.
Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Rich aromas of seasoned oak meld effortlessly with ripe boysenberry and candied cassis.

On the palate we find a genuine expression of typical Cabernet Sauvignon flavors marked by an unusual and extraordinary smoothness on the palate that allows for pairing with a great diversity of dishes. These unique characteristics are the product of the typicity of the distinctive Agrelo terroir.
Les Maitres Vignerons de Saint Tropez Fleur de Mer Rosé 2016Intensely aromatic, the elegant lavender and violet floral notes of Fleur de Mer evoke the purple-dotted hillsides and romantic seaside villages of Provence.

Alois Lageder Riff Pinot Grigio 2016The vineyard sources for most of this Pinot Grigio contain a substantial amount of dolomite limestone which has an obvious impact on the wine's character and style. It is because of the contribution that these fossils (limestone) make to the wine's character that they have been chosen to be incorporated into the label design as a reminder of its geological origin.
Orin Swift Papillon 2014Composed of all five Bordeaux varieties, Papillon is our Cabernet based red wine. The goal was to make a stand-alone wine that incorporates all the majesty of Cabernet Sauvignon with the subtleties of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the power of Petit Verdot and Malbec.
Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons - a "Napa Valley" and the venerable "Special Selection". Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" - a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
