Chateau Lamothe de Haux Bordeaux Blanc ($14.99): A traditional blend of sauvignon blanc, semillon, and muscadelle, this lively white, with extended skin and lees contact, is rich and round, with aromas of stone fruits and orchard fruits, all with great minerality and acidity.
Kalin Cellars Cuvee D 1995 ($46.99): Kalin Cellars is a completely unique production. The Leightons, a husband and wife team, have no employees in the winery leaving them as the ‘only people between you and bottle.’ They also release only library releases that they believe are in it’s prime drinking condition. With over 22 years of bottle age this shows the complexity of an aged Grand Cru white Burgundy at the price of a young California Chardonnay.
Calabretta Cala Cala Rosso ($19.99): A blend of the 2009, 2008 and 2005 vintages. Sourced from a mix of young and old vines. Cala Cala means “Gulp, Gulp”, meaning you should gulp this one down because it’s so tasty!
Trail Marker Manchester Ridge Pinot Noir Mendocino ($52.99): Pale ruby colored, the 2016 Manchester Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir has a compelling dried herbs and savory stems nose with a core of cranberries, red cherries and redcurrants plus touches of underbrush and tilled soil. The palate is light to medium-bodied, super elegant and fresh with a great intensity of perfumed red berry characters and a long, satiny-textured finish.
