I stumbled onto this article in the Los Angeles Times about a restaurant in Santa Monica that offers wines from casks. In reading the article it sounds like their wine lists gives a general description of the available wines--e.g., "2009 Cabernet from Chalk Hill in Sonoma County"--and the diner can order a glass, a half-carafe or a full carafe....

Back at ya, Kim.Thank you for the excellent list. The good news is that I ... Valley is located between Los Angeles and San Diego. You can get good, but, probably, not great wines from Temecula.

Temecula's terroir has been often compared to Southern Italy and France. Our soil as a high granite composition, and we get nightly coastal breezes that cool the grapes. We are know... Read More

Literally smells like fresh fruit, lightly of cloves and vanilla, but almost no oak. I was surprised at the jammy flavor and medium mouth-feel. Decent wine for the price, light lunch, or picnic. Read More
This is a 2011 Vintage. Refreshing rose, light, easy to drink. Less dry than most blush wine. Hint of nectarines while sipping. Great color too, but I probably won't get more. Read More
