- Charles & Charles Rose 2014 is awesomely complex, the best vintage of this wine yet. The color is similar to the 2013 with its vibrant pink, salmon and fuchsia edges. More than ever, the wild red fruit of strawberry, raspberry and Bing cherry are interwoven with Herbs de Provence and grass, a touch of citrus and an even greater presence of minerality. It was generally a lower acid year, but you wouldn’t know that from the natural acid in the wine and bright finish. To promote vibrant aromas, we used a few new experimental yeasts, which we liked a lot and, as ever, maintained lees contact to build up body until we blended for bottling. Syrah dominates the blend as it always has, but the co-star varieties play an increasingly important role.

- Joel Gott and Dave Phinney Shatter Grenache, Maury France 2012. 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of vanilla bean all flow nicely to a seamless, silky, yet decadently styled red that has fine tannin, and a blockbuster, heady finish. It will certainly not appease those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but count me a fan. The oak is still present, so give it a year in bottle; it will drink nicely for another 5-6 years." 23.99/750 ml.
- Chateau Pegau Cotes Du Rhone is a tank-aged blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault.

Chewy, tightly focused blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by juicy acidity." -International Wine Cellar 88 points. 22.99/750 ml.

- Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is dark red in color with aromas of currant and plum and wonderful hints of mocha and coffee on the palate. This wine is fruit forward with a supple mouthfeel and medium body. 11.99/750 ml.
- Manteo Sonoma Red 2013 offers real depth, balance and rich, fragrant flavors of boysenberries, black cherries, and cassis, aromatic spices redolent of pink peppercorns and anise, and distinctive notes of earthy minerals, tobacco leaves and smoky, toasted oak. The tannins are well-integrated even in their youth and the wine’s lushness leads to a long, expressive finish.
