WINE OF THE WEEK: How about THIS for a super fun, tasty wine! The 2015 Bruce Patch Sonoma Zinfandel is delicious. Its ripe, jammy nose recalls blueberry pie a la mode, and you get a lot of that on the palate as well. It’s not just about the fruit, though; there’s enough tannic grip to […]

WINE OF THE WEEK: We’ve spent the last 7 years dispelling wine myths. Among them, the notion that Champagne and sparkling wine are ONLY for special occasions. Truth is, Bubbly is also a fantastic everyday wine. It’s wonderful as an aperitif and is one of the most versatile food wines of them all. Sure, pour […]

But if you’re craving wine, a cool, crisp Rose (“ro-zay”) can be just the ticket. For example, this week’s WOW: The 2016 […]

WINE OF THE WEEK: In our wine shop the Chilean section is sneaky. Why? Well, it’s tucked away in a far corner, and it’s not one of those categories that customers frequently ask about. But. Seems like every time we go look, the section is wiped out and needs to be re-stocked. Pretty sure that […]

WINE OF THE WEEK: This is something quite special. We managed to snag a few cases of a pretty insane vintage close-out. The wine is called Correlation Cabernet, from Vineyard 7&8 Winery located on Spring Mtn, above the Napa Valley floor. This is a boutique winery whose regular Cabernet sells for well over $100. This […]
