2014 Quinta das Bageiras Espumant (Portugal)

quinta-das-bageiras-colheita-2003.091949$14.99/bottle or BEST DISCOUNT $11.99/bottle

Tasting Notes: “Mário Sérgio makes his bubblies in an absolutely uncompromisingly dry style that shines a spotlight on the powerful earthiness of Bairrada. Bracing, pure and appley, this demands food and offers exceptional value for such character.”










2015_Albarino_1024x1024.092614 2015 Ferdinand Albarino (California)

$19.95/bottle or BEST DISCOUNT $15.96/bottle

Winery Tasting Notes:
“The flagship of the Ferdinand project; this 2015 Albarino honors its Galician heritage with varietal aromatics of lime zest and a distinct salinity. Respecting its Californian origins the wine is barrel fermented and rests on lees for 8 months, giving the wine savoriness and providing a rounded balance to its natural acidity and freshness.”












Withers.0927202016 Withers Rose (El Dorado County)

$21.95/bottle or BEST DISCOUNT $18.95/bottle

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Our 2016 Rose is a dead ringer for a classic Bandol, highlighted by the color, flavors and aromas of apricot, cherry, watermelon rind nectarine and peach. The wine is buttressed by strong balancing acidity, with excellent tension and lift over its medium bodied, layered and textured frame. Balanced and elegant, it is best served at cellar temperature and can be paired with oysters, shellfish, seafood, pasta and fowl. It will be enjoyable immediately on release but should improve in bottle for 3-5 years.”








CitizensBandPinotNoir.0931262014 Citizens Band Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands)

$23.95/bottle or BEST DISCOUNT $19.16/bottle

Winery Tasting Notes: “Silky with aromas and flavors of rich dark fruit and cherries. Hints of anise and cola. Bright acidity, soft tannins and a touch of spice.”










Bedrock1-152x362.0933522015 Bedrock Wine Co. “Old Vine” Zinfandel (Sonoma)

$24.95/bottle or BEST $19.95/bottle

“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 93 Points
“Rich and supple, this is an explosion of pure, decadent fruit. Floral huckleberry and Chinese five-spice powder aromas open to layered blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2026.”







BONUS: 2013 Sergio “Arcano Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Sergio.093820$125/bottle or BEST DISCOUNT $75/bottle

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 93 Points
97% Cabernet / 3% Petit Verdot
“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Arcano Vineyard is a big, deep, rich, typical 2013, with large proportions, plenty of tannin, but superb depth and ripeness. It should go the distance of 20 years or more.”
