Byron Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County 2012 — BUY NOW! (on sale through Feb. 7)
“The 2012 vintage included a very cool winter and spring. These conditions led to being fruitful with small clusters and small berries with flavors of dark berry, cherry, hints of floral and mineral.

92 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2013
“Chakana’s 2012 Malbec Estate (100% Malbec aged in new and used French oak for 18 months) exhibits a dense, saturated ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of charcoal, white chocolate, blueberries and blackberries intermixed with hints of forest floor and spring flowers. A wine of delicacy, suppleness and full-bodied power as well as tremendous harmony and purity, it will provide pleasure over the next 7-8 years.” -Robert Parker


Dandelion Vineyards Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2011
Dandelion Vineyards Riesling 2011—BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.30.14)
89 Points – Wine Advocate, February 2012
“The 2011 Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling has intense honeysuckle, peach and ripe pear aromas over lemon curd and lime juice. Very crisp, dry and light bodied, it gives good concentration and a long zesty finish. Drink it now to 2017.” -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

“90% Shiraz and 10% Malbec. Opaque ruby. Potent aromas of dark berries, cherry pit and licorice, with a smoky topnote.

Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue 2009
Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue 2009—BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.30.14)
91 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2010
“The 2009 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is much more backward, displaying a denser blue/purple color, thicker, richer blue and black fruits, and hints of kirsch, lavender, and garrigue. Still grapy and unformed, but loaded with potential given its depth of concentration and richness, it will benefit from another 2-3 months of bottle age, and keep for 5-8 years.” -Robert Parker

Paumanok Festival Chardonnay 2012
Paumanok Festival Chardonnay 2012–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.23.14)
“Festival Chardonnay is a blend of several lots of Chardonnay. It was fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks. It is light, dry, crisp and clean with refreshing aromas and flavors of apple, lemon, pineapple and stones. This is a great every day white, perfect with pasta, poultry, fish and cheese dishes.” -The Winery 


Paumanok Chenin Blanc 2013
Paumanok Chenin Blanc 2013–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.23.14)
“The Paumanok 2013 Chenin Blanc is a blend of our three lots of Chenin, 100% Chenin! It underwent a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It was bottled with a screw cap to preserve freshness and cleanliness. The result is a fresh, crisp, racy, and bracing Chenin that is redolent of grapefruit and pineapple, with more subtle notes of melon, apple and guava. It makes an excellent companion to various white meat fish dishes, such as sea bass, flounder, cod and lobsters and especially oysters.” 


Paumanok Dry Rose 2013
Paumanok Dry Rose 2013–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.23.14)

Paumanok Petit Verdot 2012–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.23.14)
“2012 was an excellent vintage. While the early summer months of June and July saw challenging conditions in the form of high humidity, the latter part of the summer was marked by plenty of heat, sun and long stretches of dry weather; ideal conditions for winegrowing. The most significant meteorological event of 2012 — Hurricane Sandy — occurred a few days after we had picked the last of our grapes. The wine is 100% Petit Verdot aged for 10 months in neutral French oak barrels before bottling. Medium-bodied with savory, pepper and herbal aromas. Flavors of blackberry, blueberry and spice. Firm tannins.” -The Winery

Orin Swift Locations F2 2012 Orin Swift Locations F2 2012–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) “French red wine sourced from some of the finest locations throughout France. Grenache from the Roussillon, Syrah from the Rhone, and assorted Bordeaux varietals have been sensibly blended in an original style that showcases the best of what this historic land has to offer. Opaque with ruby accents, the wine is intensely perfumed with aromas of vivid wild berry, warm spice, plum, kirsch, lavender and subtle oak nuances. The entry is juicy and penetrating with rich flavors of ripe blackberry, racy currant and blueberry that generously coat the palate. Easy drinking, the finish is long and clean with just the right amount of polished tannins to keep the fruit in focus.” -The Winery

Orin Swift Abstract Red 2012

Orin Swift Abstract Red 2012–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) “Abstract is a blend of Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Grenache, Petite Sirah, and Syrah primarily from hillside vineyards. Inky blue-purple in complexion, the wine bursts with a perfume of dark fruit, sage, acacia flowers, kirsch, and a hint of California chaparral. Voluptuous in texture, the wine is remarkably fresh on the palate with ripe blackberry, mulberry, roasted plum, black tea, and bitter chocolate. A sweet and soft tannin profile rounds out the finish, which lingers elegantly. Aged 10 months in new and seasoned French oak.” -The Winery

.
Eyrie Pinot Gris Estate 2012–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) “Eyrie has been setting the benchmark for American Pinot gris ever since their favorite winegrower, David Lett, planted the first New World vines in 1965. The tradition continues with the 2012 vintage. Bone dry and medium-bodied with a nicely balanced acidity, Eyrie’s Pinot Gris shows complex varietal aromas and flavors, with a smooth yet crisp and refreshing finish.” -The Winery


Eyrie Chardonnay Estate 2011 Eyrie Chardonnay Estate 2011–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) 91 Points – Wine Advocate, October 2013 “The Eyrie 2011 Chardonnay – harvested October 26 – is dominated by bright, juicy grapefruit and lime tinged with their piquant pips as well as with saliva-liberating salinity. Straight and penetrating as an arrow; amazingly buoyant (but then, there’s only 11.7% alcohol!)…mouthwateringly sustained [with an] invigorating finish. This outstanding value is apt to remain riveting through at least 2020…” -David Schildknecht

Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2011
Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2011–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) 89 Points – Wine Advocate, August 2013 “The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a perfumed, elegant personality with plenty of ripe herbs, black raspberry, black currant, lead pencil and cedar flowing to a medium-bodied, supple and polished Cabernet Sauvignon that has sweet tannin and good overall depth and richness. It’s not a blockbuster, but has beautiful Cabernet typicity. Enjoy it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019.” -Jeb Dunnuck


Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo Calle Ponce Valdespino Palo Cortado Viejo Calle Ponce–BUY NOW! (on sale through 01.16.14) “The wine is called Calle Ponce or Ponce Street because this is the road that the old bodega, where the solera resided, was located. The wine has a medium mohagany intensity. Aromas of dried fruits and hazelnuts. The palate is very round and dry with notes of vanilla and dried fruits.” -The Importer
