    Now that price has reterned to reason this is still one of, if not the, best entry level Champagne. It is clean, crisp, tart with a slight taste/aroma of citrus & apple. Almost anyone will like it. There is very little yeast or nut aroma here, but there are others with that more mature style.

    Fresh, subtle citrus & fruit nose w/ fresh grape, citrus & bread dough flavor. Marvelous, lingering taste that is full & sweet, but not too sweet, on the lips. A tiny pepper & ginger aftertaste teases you for minutes afterwards. You will read many glowing reviews of this wine but none say it better than the one that states "...what God gives his angels when they have been especially good." Awesome!

    Similar to their Brut (slight citrus aroma & flavor) but w/ a hint of strawberry & a slightly sweeter taste around the corners of ones mouth. Also good, but less versatile. At this price who cares -- keep several of each.

    Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay 2005
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    When opened the wine has a piercing stone/mineral over citrus aroma similar to a Schloss Vollrads Qmp. With air banana & tropical fruit aromas emerge & the wine has a full CA Chardonnay fruit taste nicely complemented w/ an oaky dryness & noticeable (13.9%) alcohol. Tasty but not as smooth as the Sonoma Cutrer but nice @ the lower price. From 2d 1/2 btl: Wow, give it a couple days in a VacVined .375 ml bottle & it softens, becomes heavier & picks up slight apricot notes; nice! Note: this is the only vintage since `99 not rated >87 in major wine publications. Good buy ~ $12. T/WM898.

    Wild Horse Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Pale medium color w/ a sour cherry & wood aroma. Flavor is of sharp, cherry, raspberry w/ the slightest hint of tea. A little hot with good acidity. A nice food-friendly CA Pinot, but the price is escallating out of its value range. WM750/O13.

    Lyeth L de Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $13.99
    Jammy aroma & deep burgundy color w/ a fruit forward taste of red grape accented w/ cassis, raspberry a hint of toast & leather w/ black pepper on the finish. Soft but noticeable tannins (more so than Central Coast Cabernets near this price). It's a good value & better than any $10 - $12 Cabernet I know of! We all liked it better than their (higher priced & better reviewed) Meritage. S1092

    Chalone Estate Pinot Noir 2002
    Sold Out
    $39.99
    Deep ruby color; dense nose of spice, dark fruit, tea & earth.  The flavor is of currents, spice, vanilla & wood. But it is dry & food friendly, not bright fruit-juicy as many, lesser, CA Pinots. It is a smooth, complex Burgundian-style heavy weight. VG to EX!

    Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2004
    Sold Out
    $49.99
    Red/purple color. Blackberry, cassis & chocolate nose w/ a finely textured medium body. Similar flavor components. Bordeaux-like for a Napa wine. Young (easily give it 5 more years) quite a special wine. WB36.

    Our co-favorite sparkler (with Roederer's Blanc de Noirs). This CA sparkling wine has a harmonious blend of citrus, bread dough and spice that is great by itself of with lighter foods. Fairly priced.
