  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014


    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

  • Mcwilliam's J.J. Cabernet Merlot 2013


    This is a nice value wine that exemplifies both a deep, slightly spicy dry quality along with a fresh juicy forward approach that is standard for a Merlot.

  • Gato Negro Cabernet-Merlot 2014


    Drank this with some triple-meat pizza (pepperoni, sausage, and bacon). The flavors complimented well, and it was plenty good the next night as a standalone as well. One I drank was 2015, so from last year. More than happy to buy it again. Convenience note - this one has a screw top. Read More
