Stolpman Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Ballard Canyon 2016 – List Price $19.99, Sale Price $16.99
Crisp, yet smooth and already enticingly pleasurable, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc fits the bill for a fresh, pure-driven white. Over the coming months after release, the Sauvignon Blanc gains further weight and texture, with Limestone-driven chalk beginning to shine through the wine's fruit purity. For now, a primary spectrum of meyer lemon, fresh lemonade, and lemon custard shine through, concentrated yet softly balanced body. Surely the ultimate Ceviche wine.

Calstar Cellars Oppenlander Vineyard Pinot Noir Mendocino County 2017 – List Price $49.99, Sale Price $44.99
Winemaker's Notes - Vibrant ruby violet in color, the Oppenlander Vineyard Pinot Noir embodies the classic, brooding dark fruit and earth of Mendocino Pinots, but with the startling concentration and intensity found only in such historic vineyard sites as this. On the nose, it leads with loamy mushroom, jammy berry and soft cedarwood – all notes that harken to the own-rooted vines in heavy clay soil. The palate follow suit and does not disappoint: primary flavors of pomegranate and bing cherry quickly recede, setting the show for sweet aged leather, dark chocolate, violets and dusty minerality. Soft, yet chewy tannins balance the cool-climate acidity and bring the wine into balance. Complex and layered, this bottling promises to reward those who can wait 5-8 years in order for the wine to mature and fully realize the intensity and concentration of the site.
Calder Wine Company Carignane Mendocino 2014 – List Price $29.99, Sale Price $24.99
The 2014 Carignane combines two separate vineyards, both farmed by the Colombini family in Mendocino County.

Summers Charbono Villa Andriana Vineyard Napa Valley 2013 – List Price $29.99, Sale Price $24.99
Wine Enthusiast, Rated 90 Points – “A relic of times gone by in the Napa Valley, this 100% varietal Charbono is dark purple in color and compelling in its aromas of leather saddle and baked bread.

Weingut Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner Kremstal 2017 – List Price $14.99, Sale Price $12.99
Fresh and fruity, with aromas reminiscent of white currant, citrus fruits and "veltliner-pfefferl" or white pepper. The flavors on the palate are consistent with the aromas and the finish is fresh and crisp. A classic Grüner Veltliner from Kremstal, not too heavy but not too light. This wine can be enjoyed young with typical Austrian cuisine, but is also versatile enough to accompany Asian cuisines and fresh salads.
Ermanno Costa Roero Arneis 2016 – List Price $21.99, Sale Price $18.99
Wine of a tenuous straw yellow colour. The aroma is delicate with vegetal and floral scents. This wine has an important structure, thanks to the southern exposure of the vineyards, and a strong sapidity, which permit an excellent aging.
Milton Park Chardonnay South Australia 2017 – List Price $11.99, Sale Price $9.99
This fruity light-bodied Chard exhibits peach, pineapple and melon rind, and has a leafy white-pepper element along for the ride. Drink up.
Chateau Miraval Rosé Provence 2017 – List $27.99, Sale Price $23.99
Rated 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast – “Still owned jointly by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, this beautiful estate has produced a rich, full wine. Made for the owners by the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel in the Rhône Valley, this wine exhibits great sophistication, with rich caramel and strawberry fruit and spice. Drink now.” When creating their wines, The Prisoner Wine Company always look for fresh approaches to traditional varietals. For The Snitch, they combined Chardonnay from exceptional vineyards in warm Oak Knoll and cool-climate Carneros with just a touch of Roussanne. The result is bright and rich with an unexpected something special. Fresh tropical fruit, apple, and pear on the nose. The palate offers richness balanced by bright acidity.
Stolpman Hilltops Syrah 2011 – List Price $44.99, Sale Price $39.99
Rated 94 Points, Stephen Tanzer – “Dark red-ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of mocha, chocolate and wild herbs, with pungent cherry and raspberry fruit emerging only after considerable time in the glass. Initially came across as even less fruity and more savory than the Originals, with a bit less early detail, but aeration brought a tactile, chewy texture and lovely floral lift. The wine's strong underlying energy gives the juicy, very long finish a light touch in spite of the wine's powerful impression of solidity. Lay this highly concentrated Syrah down for more complexity.”
Prisoner Wine Company Saldo Zinfandel 2016 – List Price $31.99, Sale Price $27.99
Saldo was created to feature the outstanding fruit sourced from Dry Creek, Lodi, and Amador, where Zinfandel has thrived for decades. Dark ruby color with bold aromas of black licorice, black pepper, cherry, and baking spice. The entry is rich, full, and scintillating. The palate is mouthwatering and smooth with a hint of chocolate. The finish is voluptuous with soft, velvety tannins. Blend: 85% Zinfandel; 15% Petite Sirah and Syrah. Rated 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast – “Gorgeous ripe, jammy, berry flavors dominate this full-bodied, smooth-textured wine. It smells like blackberries and black cherries, tastes so rich it's almost sweet, and fills the mouth from cheek to cheek with a chocolate-cherry flavor that lingers on the finish.”
Orion Swift Machete 2015 – List Price $49.99, Sale Price $44.99
Rated 93 Points, The Wine Advocate – “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red Machete opens with scents of black forest cake, cassis and menthol with a medicinal undercurrent and a waft of chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, it has a compelling earthy/savory character and a long spicy finish.”
Hacienda Araucana Alka Carmenere Colchagua Valley 2014 List Price $62.99, Sale Price $49.99
Rated 90 Points, The Wine Advocate – “The top of the range is a pure Carmenere, the 2014 Alka, which is sourced 50% from their Lolol vineyard and 50% from vines in Apalta. It's a ripe and heady version of the grape, with high alcohol, full-bodied and with some sweetness in the finish. It matured in 600-liter French oak barrels for 18 months. It follows the house style of ripe wines with a commercial profile. 4,000 bottles were filled in August 2016.”
