Moss Roxx Zinfandel $15.99 (reg. $19.99)

This is not your everyday wine. A big flavorful Zinfandel from Lodi’s half to century year-old vines. A dense and dark red wine.

Fresh blackberry syrup, fresh ground black pepper (floral and spicy), and fresh thyme dominate the aroma. The mouth is densely flavored, plush, and succulent.

Dry Creek Vineyard "The Mariner" Red Blend $29.99 (reg. $39.99)

  This 2010 vintage of Meritage is a beautifully balanced wine from start to finish. The upfront aromas are nuanced and elegant with classic red cherry, dried floral and bright red fruit tones. After several minutes of airing, a classic Bordeaux-like structure is revealed with more powerful cassis, chocolate and dark berry fruit. The palate is very refined with a nice silky lushness that does not overwhelm the senses. The tannins seem to glide along the mid-palate making the wine structured and focused, but not too fussy. Its delicious yet easy drinking two things that are of supreme importance with a Meritage wine. The finish is seamless and well integrated. Certainly this is a wine that will age beautifully and develop in the bottle for years to come.

 Herman Story "Nuts & Bolts" Syrah $39.99  (reg. $59.99)

"Even better, his 2012 Nuts & Bolts is a smoking 100% Syrah that spent 16 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Full-bodied and decadent, yet never over-the-top, heady or cumbersome, it’s loaded with ripe blackberry, cassis, new leather, white pepper and hints of smoked duck. Drink this hedonistic beauty over the coming 4-6 years, although I see no reason to delay gratification either."-- 95 Points Robert Parker

Villa Mt Eden Pinot Noir $16.99 (reg. $23.99)

Hints of rose petals and Herbes de Provence intertwine with aromas of Morello cherry, pomegranate and cranberry. Refreshing acidity emphasizes the red fruit flavors and polished tannins persist on the finish, along with notes of caramel and tamarind.


Altus Cabernet Sauvignon  $29.99 (reg. $39.99)

The 2011 Altvs is packed with candy-like aromas that make it instantly appealing and memorable.

Just underneath lies an intriguing resinous note of fresh rosemary – a nod to the cool vintage. The mouth is lusciously rich and soft.
