2012 Palladian
Estate Napa Cabernet
Special offline price

It is polished and refined. Tightly wound at first, it gains depth and richness as it opens. The bright nose of cherry and black currants is encircled by a hint of cigar-box cedar. Some of the delicate floral notes of violets from the Cabernet Franc influence. The palate is all cassis and kirsch with a little cocoa powder. The tannins are silky.
It finishes long, clean; a classical balanced structure. Organic wine.

2016 Domaines Ott 
Cotes de Provence Rosé

Chateau de Selle Rosé

The Château de Selle Rosé reflects the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil.“Pale in
color, this ripe wine is beautifully balanced. It does have rich fruit, raspberries and wild strawberries.
It also has a fine texture with
plenty of acidity as well as
a touch of pepper.”
Less than 100 bottles left in stock.

Sale $44.99


2013 Castello Banfi
Brunello di Montalcino

Denotes riper and softer fruit than most
of its peers in this vintage.
You don't always taste that difference in ripeness, but for some reason, it comes forward with increased intensity in 2013. Therefore, I am officially recommending this wine to all those Brunello lovers who appreciate a little more volume and softness on those proverbial love handles. If you like 'em lean and mean, go elsewhere. But if you happen to be seated in front of a piping hot beefsteak that was just pulled off the grill, then you should definitely reach for this bottle.
M. Larner-Wine Advocate 92
This historic estate is located in the
southern quadrant of the appellation,
where temperatures are a few
degrees warmer on average.

2010 Bernadotte
Haut-Medoc  Bordeaux
Recently sold to a Chinese entrepreneur, in 2010 this estate produced a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot.
The wine is deep and clearly a sleeper of the vintage, with loads of fruit, glycerin and extract. Its excellent purity and loads of spice box as well as red and black currants make for a delicious, impressively endowed wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.

2015 Turley
Estate Zinfandel

The 2015 Zinfandel Turley Estate is big, rich but also comes across as not fully put together. Wild aromatics and intense fruit are some of the signatures. The lower yields of the vintage along with the natural richness of this site result in a powerful wine. Dried cherry, smoke and cedar add nuance throughout.
-- Antonio Galloni (89-92)

Minassian Young
Black Saint Peter

The winery is situated on a ridge with views that unfold to the Santa Lucia Mountains and beyond. The panorama of head pruned vines is framed by beautiful walnut trees, giving visitors a true sense of place. On the estate, is a 35-year old dry farmed Zinfandel vineyard, the source for this full-bodied, ripe and richly extracted red wine. It shows abundant jammy raspberries, cherries and chocolate, the result of careful dry farming techniques and typical of the Paso Robles Westside.
