Staff Picks for July 2015!
Domaine Barat Petit Chablis – Chablis - $20.00
Winemakers Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. A lively nose. A full, fresh smooth and beautiful aroma. Nice minerality. Staff Pick: If all chardonnay tasted like this i would only drink chardonnay! This wine is meant to be sipped and enjoyed, especially on a hot summer night. Very smooth on the palate and the minerality is what makes this one a staff pick for us!
Bonny Doon Rose Vin Gris Central Coast – Central Coast - $18.00
Flavors of fresh cherries, raspberries, citrus flowers. A great wine to take on a picnic - with its screw top (no cork!).
Staff Pick: This is our go to Rose! Great for summer sipping or pairs well with so many foods!
2014 Cade Sauvignon Blanc – Napa Valley - $28.00
Deep flavors combine with very expressive herbal and grassy flavors along with ripe grapefruit. Liquid class.
Novelty Hill – Columbia Valley - $20.00
Winemakers Tasting Notes: The wine offers a rich, round mouthfeel, pleasantly offset by balanced acidity, with a densely layered silky finish. Staff Pick: The wine is so surprisingly elegant with wonderful fruit flavors. We agree with the winemaker on the silky finish - a profile that this staff member loves.
2012 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five – Napa Valley - $90.00
94+ Point Rating by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate! The wine represents Stag's Leap to a tee! Ripe, easy to love tannins and a long and complete finish.
Proper Wines – Walla Walla Valley - $42.00
Totally gorgeous and stunning. Robert Parker gave this wine a 94 point rating! Full-bodied, pure, fresh and elegant on the palate. Integrated acidity with a fabulous finish.
