~Happy to Offer~

2016 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley $32 bottle
A hearty addition of 16% Semillon is in this white, which is floral with peach and apricot. Fleshy plushness dominates alongside a simple layering of acidity that keeps it balanced, taking on further fruit components of tropical pineapple and mango.

2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains $35 bottle
93 Points Antonio Galloni "Domaine Eden's 2013 Chardonnay is subtle, poised and gracious to the core. Dried pear, dried flowers, sage, mint and chamomile grace the palate in this understated, exquisite Chardonnay. Hints of smoke, slate and dried pear reappear on the super-classic, expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. Quite simply, the 2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay is a tremendous wine for the money."

2015 Heitz Chardonnay Napa Valley $35 bottle
Elegantly assertive aromas of honeysuckle, white peach and lemon zest hint at the clean, refreshing nature of the palate. With just a touch of sweetness from French oak barrels, a well-balanced acidity and a slight creaminess, this Chardonnay is stunning.

2014 Ramey Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard Napa Valley $75 bottle
If you don’t know him, you should! After nearly two decades of creating benchmark wines for such California wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd, David Ramey and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars in 1996.
93 Points Wine Advocate "The 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers subtle honeyed peach, pineapple and passion fruit notes with touches of baking bread and cashews. The palate delivers the goods, packed with rich tropical fruit characters and a toasty/cedary undercurrent, framed by lively acidity and finishing long, with some spices coming through."

2015 Shafer Vineyards Carneros Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch $65 bottle
93 Points Wine Spectator *Highly Recommended* "Rich and spicy, featuring an elegant mix of baked apple, honeydew melon, pear and light minerally notes. Ends full and persistent, with a long, layered aftertaste."

2015 Brea Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay La Estancia Vineyards $28 bottle
Made by "New California Wine" OG, Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars. La Estancia Vineyard in the historic Santa Lucia Highlands was planted in 1973. These alluvial, porous, granite and sandstone rich soils provide a nourishing environment for grape vines. Erin also works with many of Rudolph Steiner's farming principals to enliven the soil and bring the grapes to life.

2016 Oeno Pinot Noir Russian River Valley $28 bottle
Custom crush by Amy Atwood in collaboration with Dan Fitzgerald of Brack Mountain Wine Company in Sebastopol.
This medium bodied red wine is bursting with cherry and cranberry flavors, with some earthy forest floor elements for balance.

2016 Broc Cellars Mission $35 bottle
Listran Negra from Lodi
Only 176 cases made. Mission is the first cultivated grape in California and also goes by the names Listan Negra and Pais. Spanish missionaries planted the grapes in California to make sacramental, table and fortified wines. This wine was made using carbonic maceration and then aged for 6 months. Spice and fruit notes, with firm structure.

2015 Broc Cellars Eagle Point Ranch Counoise $35 bottle
Counoise from Mendocino County
Great acidity, medium bodied with white pepper finish. From the now legendary Chris Brockway and his urban winery in Berkeley.

2014 Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles $18 bottle
Paso Robles
Bright cherry and cassis, followed by savory bay leaf and espresso notes swirl from the glass. Rich fruit drives the palate, balanced with delicate spice, minerality, and structure persisting on the long, dry finish. Great bang for the buck!

Cain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Cuvee 12 $45 bottle
The fruit is sourced from Napa’s Rutherford, Spring Mountain and Los Carneros vineyards.
The NV12 is a happy blend of the warm, generous 2012 vintage and the cool, aromatic, and structured wines of 2011. The beautiful perfume of our mountains floats ethereally over a round, plump, inviting wine. It is complex, a blend of the Cabernet family, dominated by Merlot (almost half). Forest floor aromas of evergreen. This is a silky, vibrant wine that rolls elegantly and lightly over the palate.

You are splurging for a good cause!

2013 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Napa Valley $155 bottle
97 Points Robert Parker "One of the great efforts of recent years, and not surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a blend of 81% from Howell Mountain, 11% from St. Helena and the rest Calistoga and Mount Veeder. It is multi-dimensional, layered, and one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserves – and there have been many."

2014 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Select $225 bottle
The pride of the Wagner family. Comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage, it is not produced in years where the quality just doesn't meet Chuck Wagner's standards. The "Special Selection" is both approachable in its youth as well as in its maturity.

2013 Joseph Phelps Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon $275 bottle
96-100 Points Robert Parker "The flagship wine of the estate in reds is their Insignia, which has been one of the great Bordeaux blends made in California since the debut vintage in 1974. This stunner should hit its prime in 5-6 years and last 30-40 years."

And for the Whiskey Lovers!

Slaughterhouse American Whiskey $49 bottle
Noted California winemaker David Phinney of Orin Swift Cellars is back on the minds of whiskey lovers with the new Slaughter House American Whiskey. Initially aged nine years in American oak before seeing additional maturation time in Papillion barrels. These wine vessels once housed a Bordeaux-styled blended red who’s components were sourced from a range of Napa Valley vineyards. The whiskey was then cut with water from a natural hillside spring found on Phinney’s property some 2,000 feet above California’s Alexander Valley.

Straight Edge Bourbon $60 bottle
Straight Edge Bourbon is the limited edition bourbon finished in used Orin Swift Cellars Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvingon Barrels for 4 to 5 months. Aromatically intriguing with brown sugar, maple, caramelized oak, exotic spices, orange peel and campfire. The palate is velvety smooth, rich and packed with flavors of brown spice, honey and intense caramel. The complexity is apparent and the finish is persistent, long lasting and focused.
