2012 Pezzi King Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

PezziKing_chard-152x362.151728$22/bottle or $14.99/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Vibrant flavors of passion fruit, honey and Key lime lead the way to melon, citrus and honeysuckle notes in the mouth. Chardonnay finishes with tropical fruit, garden herbs and hints of vanilla bean. Pairs wonderfully with salmon cakes topped with lemon aioli or chicken roasted with fresh garden herbs and creamy mushroom risotto on the side.”

Jay’s Take: “A classic chardonnay from the Russian River Valley.  Perfectly balanced with bright acidity, and richness, this chardonnay is an easy choice.”






Sequana_pinotnoir-152x362.1520202010 Sequana Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

$39.99/bottle or $29.99/bottle on six +

 Winery Tasting Notes:
“This wine has a distinctive and recognizable Russian River flavor profile. On the nose, the wine carries a bouquet of rose petal and spice that lead to flavors of bing cherry and raspberry on the palate. The finish is layered and balanced, with dusty earth overtones.”

Jay’s Take: “Love this pinot!  Bright fruit and a lingering finish have this as one of the top pinot noir’s in CV right now. “







Saxon Brown “Fighting Brothers” Zinfandel 2010 (Sonoma County)

SaxonBrown_zin10-152x362.152247$29.99/bottle or $24.99/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Our 2010 Fighting Brothers Zinfandel has an intense raspberry and dried cranberry signature that seems to run from year to year, along with black cherry/berry, dark chocolate and sweet elegant oak tones. On the mouth this wine has great structure and firm acids with a core of dried raspberry, mocha and dark chocolate dust reminiscent of a decadent raspberry chocolate torte. This is a very rich and long wine.”

Jay’s Take: “This small production zinfandel is fantastic!  Only 298 cases of this beauty were produced, and we have a great unpublished discount on it that you won’t want to miss.”





2010 “Short Ends” (by Hollywood & Vine) Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

ShortEnds10-152x362.152819$33/bottle or $24.99/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
“This bright, fresh red wine shows sweet red cherries, dark cocoa and fragrant cigar smoke as the aromas swirl in the glass. The palate is medium-rich with boysenberry, cherry, mocha, sweet earth and blueberry notes. The finish is clean and fruit-focused.”

Jay’s Take: “This awesome wine is made by highly acclaimed winemaker Celia Welch.  A solid Napa Valley Cabernet for under 25 bucks.”
