Acacia Chardonnay 2014, Carneros ($17.99): From a cooler region that straddles both Napa and Sonoma, this chardonnay is balanced with aromas of stone and orchard fruits, supported by bright acidity and a soft touch of oaky creaminess.
Sterling Chardonnay 2012, Napa Valley ($15.99): A mix of vineyard sources throughout Napa Valley and Carneros, this fuller-bodied chardonnay has aromas of baking spices, toast, caramel, and ripe tropical fruits.
Stags’ Leap Winery Petite Sirah 2013, Napa Valley ($39.99): A fleshy, distinctively California red, this petite sirah is a steakhouse favorite. Black fruits, lavender, and chocolate are persistent on the nose and palate, with soft tannins and a long finish. Perfect for the summertime grill.
Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Knights Valley ($32.99) One of the first great cabernets from Sonoma and a winery with over 100 years of of history, this full-bodied wine is both opulent and structured, with notes of blackberries, cassis, mocha, and dried herbs.
