MAN Chenin Blanc 2016
Save $2.00 (20%)
A crisp, expressive medium-bodied wine. Light yellow straw in appearance. Vibrant aromas of quince and tropical fruit. On the palate, fresh stone fruit and apple flavors are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality. A versatile food wine that will pair well with poultry, shellfish and vegetable dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif on a hot afternoon. Great to drink now but will age beautifully over the next 2-5 years.
Bodegas Muga Rioja Rosado 2016A very light, bright colour - mainly pale orange-tinged salmon pink. In this harvest very fresh, tart fruit aromas return, dominating the whole sensorial profile of the wine. On the nose you mainly find the citrus and green apple aromas which are present throughout the wine's passage through the mouth; in the aftertaste, the olfactory nuances are transformed into something finer and more complex, where you can discover, along with those noted previously, hints of apricot and faint reminders of pastries. On the palate it is really attractive since, although the sharp fruit still dominates, the overall taste is sweetened by elegant, well-integrated fine lees. This is a wine with a long finish, combining sweetness, freshness and acidity.
Domaine de Mourchon Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret Tradition 2015In the Rhone, there is a quality hierarchy. Only 18 special villages receive the honor to list the village name because of their superior terroir, higher quality and lower yields. Domain de Mourchon is one of these special villages so they are allowed to append their village name to the end of Cotes du Rhone Villages, as in, Cotes du Rhone-Villages-Seguret.
Honoro Vera Rueda Verdejo 2016This white from Rueda exudes intense aromas of white flowers and fresh fruit with exotic tropical notes. The best vineyards of Rueda are situated on sandy soils covered with gravel, where the vines produce the finest grapes possible in this region, ideal conditions to produce quality white wines.
Domaine Sautereau Sancerre 2017An open nose with a good varietal profile leading to notes of boxwood rhubarb, melon and fruite aromas of pear and mango. Supple in the first instance the wine shows good volume in the middle with fruity and floral accents finishing with long lingering aromatics.
Jam Cellars Butter Chardonnay 2016Butter Chardonnay is rich, bold and luscious. Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes selected are juicy, ripe and bursting with flavor. This easy-to-love Chardonnay is cold fermented to create a lush creaminess and aged in a unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. Simply put, it melts in your mouth!
Couly-Dutheil Chinon René Couly Rosé 2017Fresh, clean, dry Rose wine from France's Loire Valley with an abundance of bright red fruit flavors (cherry, strawberry) and floral aromas.

Talbott Kali Hart Vineyard Chardonnay 2016A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbott’s estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality. Kali Hart Chardonnay is named after Robb Talbott’s youngest daughter. - Winery Notes
Bodegas Atalaya Laya 2016Deep cherry red in color. Elegant, fresh and complex nose that highlights ripe fruit and floral notes. Nice and fresh on the palate, well-balanced with sweet but still young tannins, a delicious mouthful sensation that lingers on the very long and smooth finish.
Orin Swift D66 2014Optimum growing conditions with a crowning harvest mark the 2014 vintage. A saturated cardinal hue belted in garnet is revealed in the glass. The nose brims with an impeccable oak profile with shaded oak tree accents. A mineral cast of alluvial soil can be detected as well, which frames a vibrant perfume of red berry fruits, cassis, cardamom, and exotic spices. The entry bursts with a vibrant blueberry and cassis concentrate that is rounded out with the richness of a crème brûlée, or crema catalana. The mid palate has vibrant acidity with distinctive mineral notes of garrigue, stone, and schist. Closing with purpose, the wine boasts silky tannins and a lengthy finish of sublime richness.
Laudun Chusclan La Ferme de Gicon Rose 2017
Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Sourced from several prestigious wineries within the Napa Valley, the 2015 Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon is a combination of top Valley floor and hillside sites, it’s a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc. The 2015 Hardin is a Classic, Napa Cabernet that reflects the quality of the 2015 vintage with deep, rich flavors and volume. Lots of dusty cassis, stone fruit and a sage/herb spice with beautiful layers and an underlying lift of freshness that carries the finish. The wine has a great texture with sturdy, but soft, tannins. A wine that will certainly compete with many Cabernet’s at much higher prices.
Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2016Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape.

A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.
