    Brass Tacks Merlot 2006
    Sold Out $14.99
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    Brass Tacks Central Coast Merlot - I tasted juicy cherry and black plum balanced with good acid and some spicy vanilla notes mixed in. Enough tannins to give a lingering finish. Nicely built wine. Good with red-friendly grilled meats or pasta.

    Brass Tacks Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Had this wine with grilled tri-tip. Lush fruit and integrated tannins held up well to the rich flavor of the steak. Liked the acid and touch of wood in the finish which balanced perfectly to the up-front fruit.

    Brass Tacks Riesling 2008

    Just had this new vintage - as good as the 2007 which received Editors Choice selection from Wine Enthusiast - 90 pts. Love the balance of good acidity matched against fresh orchard fruits. Really outstanding as aperitif and our go-to wine when we eat homemade sushi rolls. Glad this came back into stock!

    Great nose like a fruit orchard: pear, peach, and honeysuckle. Good acidity to balance all that fruit. Nice mouthfeel. In all, a delicious wine that I enjoyed as an aperitif but would drink again with Asian food.

    This is an exceptional chardonnay in a very Burgundian style: lots of stone and mineral notes, restrained but ripe fruit, light touch of oak, and long, long finish. Beautiful and balanced; smooth and elegant.

    This is a big, juicy Merlot with nice balance and great length. The '06 vintage was awarded "Publishers Pick" from Tasting Panel and I think this wine is every bit as good.

    Wine Spots Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    Sold Out $19.49
    2012 vintage available for $29.99
    Ripe fruit is up front but not over-extracted. Nose has cedar and chocolate notes. Good body to the wine and it delivers nice cherry and berry flavors finishing with supple, well-integrated tannins. Elegant and enjoyable wine. Would drink again.
