Ringside California Zinfandel 2010 9.99/750 ml.
This California Zinfandel delivers a rush of beautifully structured blackberry and spicy oak characteristics. It finishes with spicy pepper aromas and welcoming notes of warm luscious fruit. 14% ABV.
Manifesto! California Zinfandel 2011 15.99/750 ml.
Zinfandel is the newest addition to Jamey Whetstone's Manifesto! line. Winery notes: " The 2011 Zinfandel is ruby red in color with high-toned nose of currants, red raspberry, wild strawberry, and Asian spice with a touch of dusty earth. Medium bodied flavors of red raspberry and currant follow through with hints of baking spice, citrus and garrigue. Finishes long and lean. 4000 cases made."
Manifesto! North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2012 11.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "The 2012 North Coast Sauvignon Blanc displays a tropical nose of pineapple, melon, ripe pear, beeswax, peach and a touch of cut herbs. Big mouthful of pink grapefruit, melon, the trademark orange Creamsicle, with a bright, full bodied finish of lime, Meyer lemon, and a touch of honey."
Manifesto! California Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 15.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "The 2011 California Cabernet Sauvignon displays a bright, floral nose of cassis, dark red cherry, and rose petals. Secondary aromas of chocolatey rhubarb with hints of saddle leather and mint evolve. Silky, medium bodied flavors of ripe red cherry, plum and cassis lead to back end notes of rhubarb, red meats, and Baker's chocolate."
Manifesto! North Coast Unoaked Chardonnay 2010 11.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "The 2010 Unoaked Chardonnay is wildly complex, with a floral nose of ripe pear, freshly squeezed key limes, fennel, orange zest, gardenia and a touch of salinity. Broad, bright flavors of pear, key lime, quince, green apple, and a hint of licorice coat the palate. Finishes long and lean with secondary flavors of Bosc pear, tequila-laced orange zest, and wonderful food-marrying acidity."
Kendall-Jackson California Chardonnay 2011 12.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish. Handcrafted from 100% Jackson Estates Grown grapes grown in our vineyards along the cool coastal growing regions of Monterey County, Santa Barbara County, and Mendocino County. Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is fruit-forward, divinely complex, approachable and exceptionally food-friendly."
Francis Coppola Director's Pinot Noir 2010 18.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "This vintage of Director's Pinot Noir blends grapes from Carneros, which produces fruit with spice and earth notes, with grapes from the Russian River Valley, an area known for creating rich, dense wines noted for bright cherry and cranberry flavors. As a result of combining fruit from two appellations, we designate this wine Sonoma Coast. Both of these regions experience a cool climate and fog that rolls in from the coast, conditions that favor Pinot Noir. Our 2010 Director's Pinot Noir boasts an intense perfume of fresh strawberries, orange peel and tea leaves, while the silky texture accentuates sweet, luscious flavors of raspberries, cherries, cloves and spicy oak."
Angels Landing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 17.99/750 ml.
This is one of our best selling Napa Cabs because of its outstanding value. Tasting notes: "The 2010 Angels Landing Cabernet Sauvignon, with its ripe black fruits and tannic structure tastes like a hypothetical blend of a rich valley floor Cabernet from Oakville and a structured Howell Mountain Cabernet. Aromas of blackberries on the nose. On the palate there is black currant, some cassis, dark chocolate, mocha, and good structure. The finish is long with tannins that are silky with some of the cassis fruit mixed in."
Angel's Landing Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2010 15.99/750 ml.
Tasting notes: "Angels Landing has become a household name for great quality just like Robert Mondavi, Joseph Phelps, etc. Not only do they make a great Napa Cabernet for the money, a Napa Merlot made more in the style of Pomerol, but also this Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir that drinks more like a $30 bottling. Packed with plenty of ripe cherries, blackberries, and plum. Very silky on the mid-palate and the finish. It also is not overdone with the oak. Just the great fruit flavors you get from ripe Pinot Noir."
Josh Cellars Chardonnay 2011 14.99/750 ml.
Winery notes: "Ripe Citrus summer fruit, peach, pear, aligned with a touch of vanilla and smoke, partially barrel fermented. This classic North Coast Vineyards Chardonnay offers inviting stone fruit aromas, accented by notes of tropical fruit. The well-balanced acidity supports a core of pear and sweet melon and complements a creamy texture. The wine has a clean, refreshing finish. Joseph Carr was an award winning Sommelier and international wine industry executive who set out on his own in 2005 and founded Joseph Carr Winery in Carneros. Joseph Carr has recently worked with Tom Larson to produce his second label, named Josh Cellars."
The Culprit Sonoma County Red 2010 16.99/750 ml.
The Culprit is a blend predominantly of Syrah, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah, with six other varietals thrown into the mix to give it plenty of complexity. Like the highly successful 2009 vintage, 2010 is a big, bold, and intense wine. Tasting notes: "Rich and deeply concentrated with ripe raspberries, black cherries, briary spice, and silky tannins. There is a long finish with more raspberries and a nice elegant structure on the finish that should blossom with even more fruit flavors and spice after it's been opened."
