Valentine’s Day Rosé

Billecart-Salmon
Non-Vintage Rosé
Valentine’s Day will be here soon, are you ready? Pick up a bottle or two of the world’s most romantic Rosé champagne,
Billecart-Salmon!
“…one of my favorite Champagne houses… a consistent winner. A delicate pink color accompanied by gorgeous sweet cherry, strawberry, and mineral-like scents… a delicate, crisp personality, and surprising depth as well as persistence.”

2011 Ghost Block
Single Vineyard Cabernet
Yountville – Napa
“Even better than the estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the stunning 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Single-Vineyard... Oodles of blackcurrant fruit mixed with spring flowers, vanillin, graphite and coffee bean are present in this medium to full-bodied, silky textured, round, opulent stylish wine that is a real treat for a 2011. Drink: 2014 - 2029.”
~ Robert Parker Rated 94 Points

Price $99.99              

2007 Prunotto

Barbaresco Bric Turot

 “… a rich, sensual wine packed with dark fruit. It is a seamless, generous wine very much in the style of the year. Tobacco and cinnamon … complexity and multi-dimensionality… a powerful style of Barbaresco with terrific depth and richness. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.”

– Antonio Galloni Rated 92 points

2012 Chappellet
Mountain Cuvee
Just released, the new vintage of Chappellett’s perennial best-buy Cabernet based blend! The aromas are rich, ripe and enticing, with sweet fruit layers of plum, Bing cherry and cassis, as well as notes of mocha, roasted coffee, cedar and baking spices.  It is supple and round, with a smooth, mouth-filling structure.
Fantastic value!

 

Price $29.99      


2013 Cane & Fable
Cabernet Sauvignon
“375” Paso Robles
From Curt Schlachlin & Andrew Jones, two Wizards of the Central Coast! Shows lush blueberry, boysenberry, currants, and aromatic pipe tobacco aromas and big flavors of sweet plums, red and black cherries, vanilla, herbs, cedar and freshly ground spices. Built for steaks, burgers & spaghetti, it’s great for gulping by itself as well.
Our favorite value-wine of the New Year.

Price $19.99         

 

2012 Girard

Napa Cabernet

“An old name in the Napa Valley seems to be in the process of being resurrected… plenty of blackcurrant, black raspberry fruit and a touch of subtle background oak in a user-friendly, medium to full-bodied style… should drink well for at least a decade.”

~ Robert Parker Rated 89 Points

Schloss Gobelsburg
2011 Grüner Veltliner
Kamptal Reserve
“.. back-to-the-future vinification and extended elevage … a substantial, extract-, lees-, and glycerol-rich palate, its savor akin to toasted grains and somehow slightly sinister … finishes like a long, plush and darkly hued carpet. Look for profound satisfaction through at least 2025.”
~ D.S. for Robert Parker’s Rated 92 Points

Price $49.99  
 


2011 The Paring
Santa Barbara
“Made by Matt Dees and the Jonata team…
the baby of The Hilt Chardonnay, the 2011 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County… Steely and fresh, with lively white peach, citrus, lemon peel and touches of floral notes, this medium-bodied, juicy effort has loads of class and purity and is a great value.”
J.D. for Robert Parker Rated 90 Points

Price $21.99
