The latest in a series of amazing deals in celebration of our 45th anniversary!

Bonneau Meritage 2012

We love this Bordeaux-style red blend from Sonoma, and we couldn’t believe the deal we got on such a stellar vintage! First, a quick lesson in vocabulary and wine law: In order to call your wine a Meritage (rhymes with “heritage”), you must blend two or more of the noble Bordeaux grape varieties (here, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot) and apply for a license to use the word on your label. If your wine doesn’t measure up, you can call it anything you like…just not “Meritage.” Pick up this beauty while it lasts: only 4 cases are available at this price!

Broadley Estate Pinot Noir 2013

We’ve worked with Broadley’s Willamette Valley Pinot Noir for several vintages, and this is a house that really shines in the cooler vintages. 2013 brought out the best in their estate’s old-vine Pinot Noir sites (oldest 1981), wrapping concentrated plum and currant fruit notes around a solid core of savory, spicy, earthy awesomeness. We’re proud to offer this estate-fruit Pinot at the same price as their multi-vineyard Willamette Valley regional bottling–but only through June 30!

Hindsight Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Hindsight’s 2013 Reserve Cab was the top seller and overall crowd favorite at our Spring Case Lot Sale, and we managed to secure another few cases at this unbelievable price!

From the winery: “This is only the second Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon we have made. We selected 16 out of 134 barrels from the amazing 2013 vintage to make this wine. Each of these 16 barrels clearly stood out as exceptional in multiple tastings. The wine was aged 24 months in French oak. Deep in color, this beautiful Cabernet shows off signature aromas of dark ripe berries generously layered with coffee and mocha. On the palate, its soft, lush mouthfeel combines with silky tannins, complemented by good acidity and viscosity. A dynamic, complex, long, full finish reveals its potential for longevity.”

Godelia Mencia 2010

Mencia, a grape native to verdant northwest Spain, has been receiving more attention in the last 10 years as more extraordinarily talented Spanish winemakers have decided to focus on overlooked native varieties.

Top 100 2014 and 92 pts, Wine Spectator: “Focused yet expressive, this balanced red offers cherry, boysenberry and currant fruit, with accents of toast, licorice and mineral. The flavors build through the long and spicy finish.”

Castello Romitorio Rosso di Montalcino 2011

Renowned Brunello producer Castello Romitorio also produces this Rosso di Montalcino, made from the same Sangiovese grapes as Brunello but aged only one year in oak casks before bottling. This youthful expression of Tuscan Sangiovese is aromatic and pure, with red cherries and violets on a lithe frame. An extraordinary value that’s drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve over the next several years.

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Chardonnay

From the winery: “This lush and elegant Chardonnay offers vivid aromas of white peach, lime, melon and vanilla bean, followed by undertones of praline, fresh pie dough and pistachio gelato. On the palate, flavors of Bosc pear, honeycrisp apple and Meyer lemon are underscored by beautifully balanced oak, which lends warm nuances and layers of complexity that carry through to the long, silky finish.”

2012 Samsara Cargasacchi Vineyard Pinot Noir

94 pts, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “I loved the 2012 Pinot Noir Cargasacchi Vineyard from barrel and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. Giving up rocking notes of strawberries, raspberries and cherries, it has tons of spice, dried earth and underbrush aromas and flavors that continue to develop and change in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and textured, with both freshness and richness, it’s a beautifully complete Pinot Noir that should evolve gracefully. Completely destemmed and aged 20 months in 50% new French oak, this is easily the more fruit-driven, pure and elegant Pinot Noir in the lineup.”
