    slightly off-dry, with delicious fruit, floral notes and some excellent acidity to balance it all. Very impressed with this wine as Vouvray has so often disappointed me. But for the price, this wine rocks. If you like slightly off-dry Rieslings, this is a wine to try. Delicate, yet intense in ripe stone fruits, white flowers, crisp acidity and lingering finish. Excellent quality.

    Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rose 2011
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $21.99
    I'm a rose junkie, especially when it comes to French rose. I admit I'll take a Tavel any day and twice on Sunday, but this wine gives a bit more heft than the typical lighter-bodied wines of Provence. Lots of fruit, floral and mineral characteristics, typical to the region, but it's the texture that gets me! I love that it has this silky rich texture that balances the super bright acidity. Delicious all around - on its own or with food.

    Yalumba The Signature Cabernet/Shiraz 2006
    Sold Out
    2008 vintage available for $49.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Um, YUM, is what I can say about this wine. Delicious now, lots of ability to age. Not too heavy, just the right balance, better than many Cabs twice it's price. Plus, the signature on the label changes every vintage, giving homage to an employee who has contributed much to the winery. Kind of like a lifetime achievement award :) super special way to thank someone for hard work. I'll drink to that!

    Quinta do Vallado Douro Tinto 2009
    Sold Out
    $23.99
    Style: Earthy & Spicy
    Not a wine for those who love big jammy fruit and super smooth tannins. Though there is great fruit here, it's more of the wild berry, brambly version of that, almost like dried fruit flavors. Excellent herbal notes in the background and a bit of floral, like violets there too. I love this because in no way does it try to be something it's not. True sense of place. Bit of fruit, bit of earth, bit of spice... great finish and all around balance. Great value, too!

    Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc 2011
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $14.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Usually when you see Fume Blanc you think oak. But this wine is pure stainless steel... They call it Loire Valley style, and though perhaps not as complex as many Loire wines, this delivers the citrus, grassy notes and super zingy acidity one expects from that region. Crisp, with citrus dominating, backed by some grassy, mineral and bell pepper notes. Quite refreshing. Warm day, backyard kind of wine!

    Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes 2011
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    This is a favorite summer wine. It's super floral, lots of juicy ripe fruits and then this zesty acidity to back it up in the palate. Drink it all summer.

    2011 vintage available for $19.99

    love love love this wine... excellent Chardonnay with that perfect balance between rich/creamy & fresh/bright. Fruit shines through, backed by gentle oak and a creamy texture. So delicious. Reminds me why I love a good Chardonnay at a great price.

    Silverado Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2010
    Sold Out
    $22.00
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Love this Sauvignon Blanc! It must be grown in the perfect place in Napa as it blends ripe and rich fruit flavors with bright and fresh acidity. Has that citrus backbone and that slight herbal note we want in SB, but also ripe stone fruit flavors, too. Ends crisp. Great stuff.

    Justin Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $24.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    I was super impressed with this wine. I've liked it in the past, but this vintage was excellent. It is definitely smooth and supple, with lovely red and black fruits, a sweet spice element and very mellow tannins. Great Cab for the price and really opens up - the last glass was my favorite, so make sure you give it some air.

    I'm in love with this wine - especially the nose. It is so pretty! It has so much ripe berry fruit, then lots of perfumed violets that take over.. it's ripe and plush on the mouthfeel, but with a nice spicy element and balanced acid and tannin.
