$15.99/Bottle or $13.99/Bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “This nearly garnet Rose, like all our non-vintage sparkling wines, is aged 24 months en tirage. It has a lovely, bright floral bouquet with hints of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. On the palate, it is rich and fruity in a dry, Brut style. The flavor of berries continues on the palate, revealing more strawberry, raspberry, cherry.”
Morgan “Highlands” Chardonnay 2011 (Monterey)
$21.95/Bottle or $18.95/Bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: This focused, elegant Chardonnay’s aromas feature tangerine, nectarine & almond. On the palate, the rich flavors are complemented by a light touch of toasty oak and refreshing citrus with bright acidity. Incredibly food-friendly, the 2011 Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match with cream-sauced pastas, roast chicken and pork, and seafood.”
BEST-SELLING CHARDONNAY PAST TWO WEEKS!
$31.95/Bottle or $24.95/Bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “Deep ruby color with a crimson hue. Subtle nuances of cherry and mint aromas support an abundance of mulberry and plum fruit. A soft and supple bouquet of lush plum, cedar and hints of blackberry are framed with silky tannins. Blueberry essence builds on the back palate for a smooth finish.”
Ahnfeldt “Provocative” Red Wine 2011 (Napa Valley)
$31.50/Bottle or $27.95/Bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot
“With dark ruby red colors and a hint of purple at the rim, the bouquet is brimming with sweet cherry and milk chocolate, as well as caramel and cinnamon in the background. There are also hints of currant and sandalwood. The entry is smooth and balanced with medium body and flavors echoing the bouquet. The evolution is seamless with fine-grain tannins and ample acidity. The finish is very pleasing with a good length and balance.”
