An amazing Meritage for Everyday under $10.00 (We Love This One!)

I’ve been in  the wine business since 1993 and rarely am I taken aback by a wine (in 20 year I’ve seen a lot of wine and it takes something spectacular to shock me).  I tasted this wine on Thursday and without knowing the price was very impressed with the quality.  My response on seeing the price was, “Oh My God this is ridiculous”, and then I proceeded to buy all that was...

Drouhin 2009 Grand Cru Chablis at almost Half Price

Drouhin 2009 Grand Cru Chablis at almost Half Price

This is a classic vintage with a beautiful equilibrium between acidity and mineral qualities. 2009 is showing its breed and will rightfully take its place among those vintages ending in “9” in the last century, as well as 2005, 1978, 1961… An exquisite wine often drunk on its own as an aperitif. Pure and limpid colour, with a faint greenish hint. On the nose, fresh aromas of flower and lemony flavours and, at times, spicy notes of coriander. On the palate: harmonious aromas bringing character and elegance”. Regularly:  $77.99 On...

Our Best Buy Chardonnay from Chalone

Our Best Buy Chardonnay from Chalone

Just the right balance of vibrant fruit expression and creamy  oak complexity. The bright citrus, tropical fruit, floral and brioche aromas lead to pineapple, tangerine, Fuji apple and Meyer lemon notes that dance across the palate. The fruit-focused flavors pick up an interesting minerality before they turn toasty and creamy on the   lingering finish. While elegant to sip by itself, our Chardonnay’s rich, yet crisp,  flavors are delightful with many foods. The first of our Summer Sippers, this is our Chardonnay for a fun festive Summertime...

Klein Constantia Vin de Constance Constantia 2007

On of the Greatest White Wines in the History of the Grape “A South African legend that does not disappoint.” “A scintillating bouquet that is beautifully defined with mandarin, wild honey, lavender and Seville orange marmalade vying for attention on the nose. The palate displays more race and better acidity than the Barsac with crystalline honeyed fruits and immense freshness and poise on the finish. Brilliant wine making here.”...
