    The wine that started it all, their 2003 Howell Mountain Zinfandel put them on the map... the vintage is full bodied with just the right amount of dusty mountain tannins that allow it to age well. Seductive and penetrating with its fragrant aromas wound in black pepper, sweet oak, plums and currant. A beautifully made Zinfandel that sparks with elegant flavors of ripe dark fruit and blackberry with a balanced bright finish of spice and bing cherry. With only 754 cases made, this Howell Mountain Zinfandel deserves more attention than it receives but that's to our benefit. this wine retails at 25.00 on-line... our value 2 price 14.99 per bottle

    Plowbuster by Carabella bears the unique mark of Oregon Pinot Noir. Incredibly expressive character and elegance common to wines at double its price. Plowbuster is a burgundian that speaks in straight-forward American complexity and flavor.

    Since the debut of Maldonado Chardonnay, comparisons with the amazing California Chardonnays of Kistler, Marcassin and Peter Michael have become so commonplace that it's only a short matter of time before Maldonado is on every great restaurant's wine list. For everyone who enjoys Chardonnay or intriguing whites, this is a serious must drink. It also belongs on the must drink lists of those discriminating old-world disciples who will only drink white Burgundy. I've been a fan of this wine for several years, it was love at first taste. I absolutely recommend the wine. One taste and you will agree that Maldonado Chardonnay is correct, expressive and delicious. Perfect.

    a correct red... this carmenere leads with purple and garnet colors that frame wonderful aromas of fresh sage, dried herbs and blueberry; the flavors are round and ripe with friendly tannin and a smooth slightly smoky finish that ends with good balance and length.

    another color... bodegas el nido clio 2007 Spain's black and purple 2007 Clio is made of 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon; the wine is aged for over two years in new American oak before it's put in the bottle. This is a sultry red with sexy, caressing aromas of underbrush, incense, lavender, blueberry and dark currant. Voluptuous and creamy on the palate, this stacked very attractive red is a turn on. For many who enjoy meek flavors that tease and under deliver, Clio is not for them. We should all thank Australian winemaker Chris Ringland for his work with this project. Drink in this very satisfying effort through 2020

    Originally grown in the Southeast of France and one of the blending grapes used in the wines of Bordeaux, Malbec has turned into a premier wine of Argentina. As is the case in all of the more interesting wine regions of the world, the fruit matures and acquires the very unique qualities and flavor profile that the influence of weather and soil conditions create. In most of Argentina, and especially the areas surrounding the state of Mendoza, Malbec grows and matures with great intensity. The 2007 Huarpe Taymente Malbec is certainly an example of a 'bodegas boutique' wine... both elegant and rustic with a friendly more fruit driven style.

    Silver Oak wines are supple, fruitful and deliver richness wrapped in good American oak. Critics suggest that because of its 65,000 plus case production the wine no longer merits cult status or the premium price it once fetched. I will agree that the label might not be a cult must, but it still delivers a great glass of wine; delicious and vibrant with pretty mocha cassis, plum and oak. While it's not an over-achiever in its class, it is correct and sound, and deserves better grades; after all it is Silver Oak...

    I have enjoyed Kali Hart since the very first vintage, it was then and still is well made, and an incredible value. This Chard is as elegant and nuanced as its bigger, pricier Talbott Chardonnay brothers. Beginning with the current 2008 vintage the production of this wine has been greatly reduced; so don't expect to find it just anywhere.

    I've been drinking this '07 Chard from Echeverria on the colder side, for the last month; almost non-stop. It's been great with sushi, hot and cold pasta, salads and grilled everything. The wine is very clean with subtle acidity and loaded with expressive fresh fruit... at about $11.00 it's an inexpensive luxury we all should enjoy.

    Hourglass is at the premium end of California Cabernet, and at about 175.00 it's worth every cent. This is truly an almost perfect wine, you have to drink it to understand what power and elegance in wine really means. Hourglass should be kept in everyone's cellar, whether it be a walk-in cellar, a floor unit, a closet or under your bed... it is a treasure.
