2011 Altocedro Los Poetas

2011 Altocedro Los Poetas "Libertad", Argentina

94 Points! - Wilfred Wong

”Totally concentrated, yet incredibly stylish, the bright and lasting '11 Los Poetas stays long and layered on the palate; bold"

Pronounced smoky aromas of leather, earth and forest floor fill the nose. In the mouth this wine is fruit forward with cherry and raspberry flavors on the attack. They mellow into whispers of blackberry and bramble fruit. True to its rustic aromas, the wine's palate is full of earth, smoke and leather. This is a big strong wine with gripping tannins and finishing flavors of liquid smoke and dark cacao. You will want to pair this robust wine with a powerful meat dish.

Winemaker's Notes:
According to Wine Spectator, "Altocedro represents real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel." The winery and vineyards of Altocedro are located in the premier region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroir driven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine. (usual retail $29)

2010 Montevicor Garnacha, Spain

90 Points! - Stephen Tanzer

This structured wine shows layers of fruit flavors on the palate that bring depth and a long, pure finish. Deep purple color with elegant and complex aromas of spices, cedar, cherries and licorice. Best when served with pork, lamb, or cheeses.

"Las Vastas" (The Wilds) vineyard high up in the beautiful barren mountainous of Calatayud blended with the even higher elevation "El Coll". The body and intense sweet red/blue fruits come from "The Wilds", with the delicious higher tone red fruit and lofty aromatics come from "El  Coll". The result is a very complete, complex beautifully balanced wine that provides endless drinking enjoyment. (usual retail $18)

2010 Kilikanoon “Killerman’s Run” Shiraz/Grenache

2010 Kilikanoon “Killerman’s Run” Shiraz/Grenache, South Australia

90 Points and Editors Choice! - Wine Enthusiast

Expect bigger, brighter, and redder fruits fit for easy drinking. Killer red fruit aromas of cherry compote, watermelon and salted dried beef on the nose.

There's plenty of acidity to keep the wine fresh and refreshing while still having the tannic structure to please any red wine lover.

Winemaker's Notes:
This wine received 90 points from Wine Enthusiast. It was also an Editor's Choice. Their review: "This blend is a solid introduction to the Kilikanoon range. Subtle toast and vanilla shadings accent dark chocolate and plum notes, and the wine is full bodied and sturdy without being tough. finally ending in a soft flurry of dusty tannins. Drink now through 2018." (usual retail $25)

A great value, this wine overdelivers in every sense!

2011 Perry Creek Altitude 2401 Syrah, El Dorado Hills

2011 Perry Creek Altitude 2401 Syrah, El Dorado Hills, California


Full flavored and Intense!  A Syrah built for peppery steaks. Dark purple color, intense ripe blackberry and plum aromas followed by a rich, meaty mouth-feel of mint, sour cherries and raspberry jam.

El Dorado is cooled by elevation rather than by the fog that is common to the coastal regions. This means the grapes receive more direct sunlight, thus ripening fully without retaining excess herbaceous characters or acidity that is out of balance with the fruit flavors. El Dorado's relatively cool temperatures also allow the grapes a long "hang time" for uniform ripening. In conjunction with the climate, there are three basic soil types determining the characteristics of the region: fine-grained volcanic rock, decomposed granite and fine-grained shale. Varying in elevation and topography, each soil offers good drainage and the nutrients needed to encourage vines producing rich, deeply flavored grapes. The unique combination of climate, soil and topography found in the El Dorado appellation produce wines of distinction, depth and density with a maturity unmatched in other regions. This is El Dorado's "terroir." (usual retail $30)

2012 McCay Cellars Petite Sirah

2012 McCay Cellars Petite Sirah, Lodi, California

Member Favorite! - Touring & Tasting

A Petite Sirah with a very interesting nose; notes of blackberries and hints of iron and tobacco. Dense fruit notes on the palate with currants and blackberries dominating from start to finish. There is a dusty minerality and bright edge to this wine resting on silky tannins. A hit of tobacco comes through on the mid-palate and rides the currant and blackberry notes into a long finish.
(usual retail $24)

2008 J Ludlow Vineyard “jane” Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Dealy Lane Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Dealy Lane Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California


The 2012 Napa vintage received 95 points by Wine Enthusiast. This is a classic Napa Cab brought to you by a Napa producer of great distinction, Michael Mondavi, at a reasonable price. There's just something about Napa soil, with its unique affinity for Cab, that sets it apart from all the rest. You will detect Napa in the glass at first sniff: Rich, earthy terra firma notes include waves of dark blackberry fruit, black cherry and dark plum with a good extra chunk of savory soil and black olive notes. This wine is extra bright on entry, with excellent cherry and raspberry flavors plus a dollop of whipping cream, oak and more earth notes. A sun-baked, bright acidity is well-balanced with tart cherry, licorice and a pinch of leather on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes:
Dealy Lane's Michael Mondavi is known as the "quiet icon" among his friends and colleagues. He is widely credited with helping to establish and build the Napa Valley as we know it. When Michael was eleven years old, his grandfather Cesare Mondavi -- who was also a California winemaker -- told Michael that his most important job was to leave the soil in his vineyard in healthier condition than when he received it from his father and uncle. That early advice has guided Michael's approach to winemaking and natural farming. For four generations the Mondavi family has crafted world-class wines in the Napa Valley. The family believes that the best grapes come from healthy vineyards and endeavors to maintain the health of the Napa Valley ecosystem for future generations. They aim to make wines with integrity, balance and a sense of place. (usual retail $30)

2011 Ancient Oak Cellars Zinfandel

2011 Ancient Oak Cellars Zinfandel, Russian River Valley, California

Gold Medal! - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Bright, elegant “classic Zinfandel”, with cherry and briar, wild plum and bright berry flavors and a touch of pepper.  Picked at moderate brix, or sugar levels, the Russian River Valley Zin is leaner and tends toward the “claret” style: taut, lower-alcohol, food friendly, and spicy.

“We harvest this Zin late season,in very cool weather. During the early morning pick, some of the many tiny tree frogs that live in this vineyard are too cold to move, so they cling, hidden, to grape clusters. To the amusement of winemaker Kent Barthman and the crew at the crush pad, as the frogs warm up they leap off the sorting table and away to the nearby creekside.

Complex aromas of ripe plums, blueberries, and white pepper followed by flavors of cassis, ripe plum, and pleasant finish with hints of exotic spices.” (usual retail $27)

2012 Castoro Cellars Blind Faith Pinot Noir

2012 Castoro Cellars Blind Faith Pinot Noir - Paso Robles Westside,  California

A Touring & Tasting Exclusive!

Highly Recommended! - Beverage Tasting Institute

Ruby color. Lively, earthy, fruity aromas of cherry taffy, tree bark, dried mint/ herbs, and turned earth with a lively, dryish medium body and a warming, intriguing, brisk finish with well integrated tannins and light oak. Pleasant refreshing red.

Of all the Castoro Vineyards, Blind Faith definitely takes the cake for best story behind the name.  When the vineyard was acquired in the late 90s owner Bimmer Udsen was home in Denmark visiting family. While she was in Denmark Niels (her husband and co-owner) found this vineyard on the market and immediately knew it would be a great acquisition. The only issue was Bimmer was not around to see the property and time was of the essence! So Niels called Bimmer in Denmark and told about the 400 acre property she had never seen.  On "Blind Faith" she gave him the green light and the vineyard has been one of our flagships ever since!

Planted circa 1990 and located off Hog Canyon Road, adjacent to Hog Heaven. All varieties are own-rooted. This vineyard has the steepest and most varied terrain of all the Castoro holdings. Some of the vineyard has had to be terraced, and varies from hillside to essential streambed. Soils are very well drained and of low moisture holding capacity. Again, a three wire vertical trellis is employed.  All new plantings are on resistant rootstalk. (usual retail $28)
