Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Vieilles Vignes Domaine Sainte Claire 2015
Bread & Butter Pinot Noir 2015The nose is really pretty - lots of floral, chocolate, cherry cola, with a hint of pears and caramel. It has a dusty, earthy aroma that keeps you interested long after your glass is empty. In fact, there is almost a hint of chocolate chip cookie, making me wish I was sitting in front of a fireplace. The gorgeous aromas are echoed on the palate. Ripe cherries and dark chocolate dominate. There is raspberry, roasted nuts, orange liquor, and a hint of chalk…actually, it's more like crushed Pez candies (no, I'm not drunk). The texture is super smooth, soft, and balanced. Not too much acid or tannin. Serve it cool to the touch for the best presentation.
Big Smooth Cellars Old Vine Zinfandel 2014Our 2014 vintage is a dynamic blend that truly showcases what California Zinfandels are all about. Lively aromas of blackberry, purple basil, and cocoa draw you in as the fragrance of roasted almonds emerges. The oak aging is highlighted in this robust blend through hints of molasses, dried blueberry and raspberry. With the Merlot adding mid-palate structure and the Petite Sirah contributing to a well-rounded and velvety feel, this wine has not only a memorable start but an impressive nish as well. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to roast quail, beet and feta salad or apricot marinated lamb chops.
Clean Slate Riesling 2015The fresh, balanced taste of clean slate is achieved by carefully selecting grapes from vineyards throughout the Mosel. The steep blue slate slopes of the Lower Mosel give the wine its minerality while the Middle Mosel provides a hint of spice to complement the characteristic fresh peach flavors of the Upper Mosel. Ripe peach flavors balance ripe acidity, hints of lime and characteristic mineral notes. Pairs beautifully with spicy cuisines, Asian, Tex-Mex, Indian, and sushi.

Josh Cellars Legacy Red 2014Aromatic blue fruits and brown spices delight the nose, most notable the fresh plum and blackberry fruit. The wine is dense and juicy, with bakes plums and dark cherries, layered with roasted almonds and hazelnuts, finishing long with fine, soft tannins.
