    Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee 2011
    Sold Out $37.99
    2012 vintage available for $34.99
    We just drank this for Christmas 2016 as a before dinner drink. It is a beautiful color and even though it is a dry rose it has a delightful sweetness to it. As soon as I am done with this review I will be buying some of the new vintage.

    I almost feel guilty for how much I enjoy this wine. It is delicious. There is a lovely stone flavor but also peach and other fruit. It is very "sippable" and pairs well with Brie and roast poultry.

    Easy to drink. Fruity but not sweet.

    La Playa Axel Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $18.99
    I am enjoying this Cab. It's bold but not harsh, the tannins have mellowed nicely. Lovely color and mouth feel. I don't get berry or fruit flavors upfront - what hits me is dryness and a "leather" taste. (?) Very nice wine.

    Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2012
    Sold Out $16.99
    2014 vintage available for $17.99
    Yummy Malbec. I found this wine to be incredibly smooth with none of the harshness that can sometimes be so much a part of a Malbec. Full berry flavor coming through. Just delightful.

    This wine is fun. Every bottle that has been opened has been well received by a variety of folks. Nothing but fun bubbles and fruit

    Sold Out $21.99
    2011 vintage available for $26.99
    Yummy! It does benefit from breathing for an hour or so, the flavor is deeper than I was expecting. A winner with paella!

    Scharffenberger Brut Rose
    $22.99
    I agree with Jay's review. It is safe for a party and the color is lovely and festive. I think I was expecting more flavor - more fruit.

    Parducci True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah 2012
    Sold Out $24.99
    2013 vintage available for $19.99
    Pair with: steak, Pasta > Meat
    Oh my. This is a delicious keeper. I know I should have waited a few years to open it but I couldn't wait. This is young now BUT still yummy. If you let it breathe for a few hours it totally opens up and gives you so many different layers of flavors - coffee - berry like - plumy. Acidic turns to smooth almost delicate. I am ordering more so that I'll have some for later.

    Benziger Sonoma County Chardonnay 2012
    Sold Out $17.99
    2014 vintage available for $15.99
    This is an enjoyable wine. Even though it is aged in oak, the "oakiness" is not overpowering. The fruitiness of the grape is able to come through. Also a big plus is their commitment to sustainable growing practices.
