2011 Silver Beach Sauvignon Blanc – From New Zealand
This wine is produced for members of The Wine and Spirits Guild – This wine is sourced from a single-vineyard estate on the cool, sunny, southern side of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley Nestled on the terraces of the Omaka River. Concentrated passion fruit and grapefruit aromas with a complex lees note underlying. Generous fruit flavors and enhanced textures through lees aging have given this wine great interest across the palate. A Sauvignon Blanc fan’s favorite, this is a must try with ham and pineapple dishes, littleneck clams, oysters, grilled shrimp and herbed cream or soft cheeses, and to take the heat off spicy cuisine. From New Zealand.

2010 The Culprit Red Sonoma County - This is big, bold and intense! This marriage of 9 different grape varieties, The Culprit compares to similar wines selling for $40. This Zinfandel based wine come from old vines and smells of blackberries and black cherries. Dark purple in color with flavors of raspberry fruit and chocolate. Full and plush in the mouth with round tannins. 15.1% in alcohol. This wine drinks very well on its own or would pair beautifully with burgers, pizza, roasts and stews. Not a wine for the shy. Could this be a clone of The Prisoner? I think you would be really hard pressed to find a better Sonoma Red Wine at the $15 price point.

2010 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc – Rated 91 points Wine Enthusiast. Winemaker Clive Jones has been steadily improving the wines at Nautilus, and the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc may be his best yet. Leafy, capsicum notes arise on the nose and persist through the finish, backed with just enough grapefruit to see them through. Lithe and refreshing.

2007 Toad Hollow Cacophony Zinfandel - Fragrant with juicy raspberries and pomegranates, it wants to dance, but not alone. So join the party and let it RIP. Let it DRIP. After all, it’s a juicy, jammy wine that you should allow in your pleasure zone with great rewards. Faster music, stronger wine! Finish what the sun has started. After all, it’s red, it’s lip smackin’ delicious.

2010 Brigaldara Valpolicella – Rated 91 points International Wine Cellar / Tanzer/ Bright ruby. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, blackberry and candied violet on the knockout nose. Quite juicy on the palate, with floral red berry flavors given laser-like precision by lovely harmonious acidity. This very well balanced wine could probably use a bit more complexity but it's so clean and clear that you'll find it hard to put the glass down. It also puts most other Valpolicellas to shame, hence my high score. Very well done.

2009 Tortoise Creek Cherokee Lane Cabernet Sauvignon – Rated 88 points Wine Enthusiast. From a single sustainably farmed vineyard in Lodi comes this super bang for your buck. It’s earthy Cab that’s perfumed inside and out, with wafts of cedar burning on an open fire, as well as brick, black cherry and clove. It’s balanced and structured to boot.

2009 Perseverance Old Vine Sonoma Zinfandel – From sturdy, surviving vines with deep intensity, noticeable tannins and dark, black fruit. The flavors are harmonious with notes of dark raspberries, spice, anise, caramel and roasted nuts. Big and bold with the ability to age or you can pull the cork now and enjoy with chicken meatballs stuffed with cheese, roasted pork loins in a brown mushroom gravy or veal shanks with orzo made in beef stock.

2006 Donna Olga Brunello di Montalcino – Rated 92 points Wine Advocate; 92 pts Wine Enthusiast Parker: The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty, flashy Brunello. In this vintage I find more elegance, freshness and balance than has often been the case. Freshly cut flowers, smoke, menthol, cherries, plums, underbrush and tobacco are some of the notes that come to life on the vivid, textured finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Rated 90 points By Stephen Tanzer
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 11
Bright medium red. Very ripe nose dominated by raspberry. Sweet and seamless on the palate, with ripe, harmonious acidity nicely framing the enticing flavors of cherry, minerals and spices. A floral element provides lift. Finishes with a gentle sweetness, suave tannins and excellent length. A grown-up style of Brunello that will nonetheless offer early appeal. 90 points

2008 Gloria Ferrer Estate Pinot Noir – Rated 91 POINTS, EDITOR'S CHOICE Wine Enthusiast. "What a great price for a Pinot Noir with this charm and integrity. It's a wonderful wine, dry and rich in raspberry, cherry and spice flavors. Feels svelte and silky in the mouth, just like you want Pinot to be. Might even gain a few notes with a year or two in the bottle."

Val Dieu Grand Cru- This Grand Cru may be a little less well known than some others out there, but it definitely competes with the best of them. It pours a murky brownish prune color with a thin off white head. Aromas of brown sugar, figs and you guessed it prunes are all very present. You get a lot of the same on the palate as well as some biscuit like malts and light hints of nutmeg lying underneath. The body is medium heavy with a bit of viscosity to it and surprisingly the carbonation is moderate making it very drinkable. 10.5% abv

Eel River Triple Exultation- Eel River Brewing is an all organic, sustainable brewery out of California, and Triple Exultation is their Old Ale offering. It pours a dark brown with a reddish hue and a large tan head. On the nose you get aromas of burnt brown sugar, dark fruits and sweet malts. Roasted sweet malts are prevalent on the palate with flavors of raisin, toffee, burnt brown sugar, hints of chocolate and a nice underlying hop finish. The body is medium with a slightly resinous mouth feel and low carbonation. Dangerously smooth and easy to drink!

Santa Fe Chicken Killer- This beer is interesting in the fact that it is somewhere between an English and American style barley wine. The pour is a cloudy dark copper color with a two finger beige head. The aroma is full of bready malts, caramel, fig and citrusy hops. On the palate you get the same as you do on the nose with none of the flavors overpowering the others. The body is a little lighter than most barley wines with moderate carbonation. This is a well balanced barley wine! Not too sweet, not too hoppy. 10% abv

Gran Centenario Rosangel- Rosangel is made from Gran Centenario Reposado tequila mellowed for 2 months in Port barrels and then infused with Hibiscus Flowers. It yields a complex, perfumed nose with ripe fruit and floral notes, plus hints of vanilla. The palate holds flavors of dried fruits, floral hibiscus vanilla and pepper which leads to a smooth and gentle finish. If you like a bit of sweetness in your liquor then this can be a sipper, but it would do great as a mixer as well! 40% abv
