Collet Champagne Millesime 2004
"This cooperative, situated in Aÿ in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, has produced a rich, structured wine from this fine vintage. It has tension, with a taut mineral character along with excellent white fruit flavor. Even at 11 years, the wine is young and will benefit from some bottle age. Drink from 2017."

The Whole Shebang Red Blend
"The informing impulse behind Shebang is to create a wine that is long on deliciousness and low on pretense. We do this by vinifying the wines with the same care and love as the higher end Bedrock wines- picking at respectable sugar levels (not too high!), using only native yeast fermentations, and a trace of good French oak to round things out.
Blend: 55% Zinfandel blended with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Alicante Bouchet, Grenache, Syrah, Barbera and a touch of whites for aromatics much of which comes from old vines."
Hob Nob Wicked Red 2016
"Celebrate Halloween with Wicked Red Limited Edition, a fruit forward opulent red blend with hints of oak, blackberries, mocha, and eerily smooth finish
"Bright golden in color, our Chardonnay exhibits wickedly robust aromas of pineapple and orange tree blossom. On the palate, round and full flavors of tropical fruit lead to a smooth, silky finish."
Terra d'Oro Chenin Blanc Viognier 2016
"The Terra d’Oro Chenin Blanc & Viognier displays luring aromas of juicy tropical fruits, fresh lemon and hints of spice. The palate boasts flavors of pink grapefruit, papaya, and subtle sweet mango. This wine is lively, refreshing and well balanced with crisp acidity – perfect for a warm afternoon or during sunset hour. For a delicious pairing, serve this wine with shellfish, ceviche sashimi or a spicy tuna roll and shishito peppers."
Southern Belle Red Wine
"Southern Belle is a unique and revolutionary wine. It was the first wine to use aged bourbon barrels in the vinification protocol." Aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels.
Luke Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"LUKE Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas dominated
by Marionberry and dark chocolate, accented by
hints of mint and molasses. Supple, focused and
expressive, layering coffee-accented blackberry and
currant flavors with polished tannins and hints of
cedar and smoke. "
'Bitch' Grenache 2015
Meneres White Port
"Cask aging has lent the wine a softened mellow texture with an intense complex nose which complements the appealing raisiny fruit. "

Field Recordings Wonderwall Wine
"Opens up with a nose full of pears and clementines. Super fresh and clean like an ocean breeze. On the palate, ripe stone fruit, more citrus and pie crust."
Field Recordings Wonderwall
Vin Gris 2016
"Tart cherry with touch of apricot and rose petals. The mystery of Friuli crossed with the refreshing saline quality of provence. Ready for a warm fall night out on the town."
Field Recordings Wonderwall
Pinot Noir 2016
"Black Cherries, figs, cola and almond bark. Touch of smoke and black tea. Hint of white pepper, clove and cinnamon."
Carl Graff Spatlese Riesling 2015
"A typical Mosel Riesling, lively and
refreshing. It has a fragrant bouquet
and flavors reminiscent of apples and
peaches, and finishes with a distinctive
mineral tone and a crisp, mouthwatering
Emmolo Merlot 2015
"A deep purplish red, this wine is rich on both the nose and palate. Scents of lush dark plums mix with candle spice, saddle leather, floral notes and cocoa baking powder. A sweet smokiness calls to mind the smell of a campfire burning in the woods. The palate stars off smooth and continually expands, with earthy flavors of dark fruit compote, baking chocolate, leather and toasty oak. Gritty, finely textured tannis build all the way through the finish, which lingers with notes of bittersweet chocolate and ripe berries."
Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"90% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Oak Knoll and Mt. Veeder AVA's, 4% Petit Verdot from Coombsville and 4% Cabernet Franc from Mt. Veeder and 2% Malbec from Oak Knoll. Our 2015 Vintage is crafted from carefully selected grapes to yield an intense, deeply colored wine of concentrated aromas and flavors. The wine is approachable and delicious and full of dark cherries and black currants and has notes of cedar, sandalwood and coffee."

Treasure Hunter 'The Sacred Bull' Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
This wine embodies raw power and grace. Ample tannins, Iberico smoked ham, black currant and blackberry make up the inky core of this sexy beast. The Bull is infused with poignant layered spices but stays as focused as a sniper. It’s more complex than algebraic geometry but as approachable as Tom Hanks at a Denny’s in a chicken suit.
Domaine de Chevalier 2014
"This is a structured wine with its tight acidity and concentrated white and citrus fruits. Produced from a small parcel on the Chevalier estate, it is complex with its mineral texture, its touch of pepper and its fine herbal acidity. It is a wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2023."

Chateau Chantelys 2010
"This is a fruity, Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine, with tannins that support and balance the black currant flavor. Wood aging lightly brushes the structure."

Raptor Ridge Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
"A gorgeous Shea bottling, this is lushly aromatic and fruited with strawberry jam, blueberry and cherry. The fruit is set against clean acids and supple tannins, and flavors remain full and focused with details of baking spices all through the long finish. This is a thoroughly delicious example of the power and pleasure of the 2014 vintage in the Willamette Valley."

Buoncristiani O.P.C. Proprietary Red 2014
"The 2014 Proprietary Red O.P.C. is a blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah, 20% Malbec and 12% Merlot. A brilliant nose of blue, red and black fruits, licorice, graphite, background spice and roasted meats jumps from the glass of this complex proprietary red. This is an intriguing blend that Buoncristiani has pulled off flawlessly. The color is a dense ruby/purple, the wine full-bodied and rich with sweet tannin, a burgeoning, broad suppleness and a rich, long, lusty finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."

Chat Millaux Bordeaux 2016
"This Chateau les Millaux is one of the best vvalues we have found in recent years. Frederic buys his oak barrels directly from Chateau Haut Brion and applies to his family wine lessons that he learned while working for seven years at this 1st classified growth chateau."
Chateau Guiraud Sauternes 2013
"This gorgeous Sauternes is still really tight, with racy floral and green plum edges along the core flavors of white peach, mirabelle plum, melon and green fig, but there's stunning length, with a rapier of minerality that matches the sweetness step for step on the long, quinine-infused finish. Built for the long haul. Best from 2018 through 2038."

La Petite Lune Blanc 2015
"Straight out of the bottle the aromatics leap from the glass. Notes of pineapple and gooseberry mesh with capsicum and white pepper. On the palate, there is plenty of stone fruit, more than the nose might suggest. As a result, the acidity is mellow and refreshing. There is a lovely minerality and a subtle saline character on the clean, crisp finish. A very accomplished dry white Bordeaux for the price-point which will only improve over the next year or two."
Serena Sweet Red Wine
"Serena is a versatile wine with aromas of rose and an accent of rhubarb-strawberry pie. On the palate, the wine has raspberry and cherry flavors with a rich mid-palate and lingering, complex finish. Lightly "frizzante", Serena has the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity."
