Dear Friends,
Just thought I’d drop in and let you know which wines I’ve been enjoying at the dinner table recently, and also share which Lots your fellow wine lovers have been scooping up!
Lot 643 2015 Paicines Cabernet Sauvignon – Since its release in early October, this wine has catapulted to the top of our best sellers charts, and it’s easy to see why – pound for pound, it’s one of the best values in California Cabernet you’ll find anywhere. At this moment in its life cycle, it pours a dark core with a garnet rim, with aromatics of crushed flowers, red fruit, and plums. On the palate, soft tannins and balanced acidity make this a perfect food pairing wine for the holiday season and beyond. My default house pour.
Lot 628 2016 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – Another fantastic value Cabernet, Lot 628 is produced from a single vineyard planted to the silt-loam soils of one of the oldest wineries in the Walla Walla Valley, and is a classic example of what we love about Washington state: first-class winemaking at everyday prices. At the moment, it shows a nose of raspberries and plum with hints of graphite and rose petal. The palate is full of red fruits and earth, with good acidity, integrated tannins, and a long elegant finish. A terrific steak pairing.
Lot 655 2017 Arroyo Seco Chardonnay – It’s hard to say anything that hasn’t already been said about our most popular white wine series ever – Arroyo Seco Chard never fails to please on all occasions. Currently pouring a pale gold, with a vibrant nose of apple, lemon oil, vanilla, and white florals. Apple and pear follow on the palate, with a lightly buttery finish. A dangerously drinkable wine.
Lot 656 2015 Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir – A definitive Monterey coastal Pinot, this is a smooth, supple red that is both a universal food pairing and a perfect solo sipper. At the moment, it greets you out of the glass with a mildly spicy nose of cherries and cranberries, followed on the palate by forest floor and cherry-like acidity and the long, lingering finish. Monterey County continues to be one of the best intersections of quality and value in California.
I know there are many savvy shoppers among you looking forward to the deals coming next Friday, so stay tuned…

Cheers!
