  • One California wine writer is saying the state's best cabernet sauvignon can be found high in the mountains above Santa Cruz, not down in the Valley. Wine columnist Laurie Daniel recently lauded Ridge Vineyards in an article in the San Luis Obispo-based newspaper The Tribune, saying the estate's Monte Bello may very well be the California's fine...

  • Shafer Chardonnay Napa Valley Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch 2011

Pretty good acid. Also, that vanilla that I detected on the nose does not show up on the palate. US$47.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana. Read More
