The 2017 Renegade Red is a huge red wine blend that pushes 15% alc. You never taste it though, it’s well hidden within its rich, juicy texture accented by flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cedar and cocoa. It finishes long with a hint of spice — a guaranteed crowd pleaser for sure. So much so Wine Enthusiast gave it 92 points – one of the highest ratings of the year for a wine of this type.
A Pinot usually exclusively for top restaurants throughout the country, the Anthill Farms North Coast Pinot Noir is a NV blend from their top wines from Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley with a smidge of Comptche. It’s medium bodied, red ruby to the rim with inviting aromas of red cherry, plum, apple pie and cinnamon. As one of the hottest Pinot Noir producers in the US over the last decade, the winemakers of Anthill Farms have been called the rock stars of Pinot Noir.

“This starts out with a more savory, earthy and spicy expression and has a gently meaty edge to the nose with a vibrant, exotic feel. Violets and wild herbs abound with forest wood and sous bois – very complex already. The palate has a very tautly composed feel with acidity really adding spark to dense, powerful tannins. Red and dark cherries abound and there’s a floral and mineral thread of flavor. Salty too, like samphire and nasturtium. Striking wine.” – James Suckling
Maggie Harrison (formerly Sine Qua Non) makes the 2016 Antica Terra Coriolis Pinot Noir, an intricate blend that is crafted by picking select barrels from here Antikythera, Ceras and Botanica Pinot Noirs. Each are AVA specific Pinot Noirs that retail for $120/each and consistently garner several 95+ pt scores. Drawn from two of the best vineyards in the state (Shea and Seven Springs) – this is a Pinot for the ages at an incredible price.

This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.
The 2016 Bibi Graetz Grilli is a delight. A predominantly Cabernet blend rounded out by Syrah and Merlot all from the heart of Chianti, Bibi bucks convention again by utilizing steel vats to preserve the fruit-forward and overt freshness of the wine. Notes of blackberry preserves and dark plum dominate. Don’t miss out, BIG RED fans. This one is a winner.
What separates this Valpolicella from its peers is the grapes used were grown for this wine specifically. This isn’t Amarone seconds, it’s a precisely crafted and seductive rendition of the Corvina grape that will appeal to Red Burgundy lovers. Highly versatile and elegant, Ca La Bionda’s Valpolicella mesmerizes with red and blackberries, anise and Asian spices with serious depth.
The 2018 Carl Roy Stag’s Leap District is a wine that was never supposed to be poured anywhere but the finest steakhouses from SF to NYC. But that all changed in March. Even so, when I got the call asking if I would like this Stag’s Leap Cuvée from Carl Roy, I thought it was a mistake. From the most storied AVA of Napa and somehow just $35/btl? Hurry because this one won’t last!
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.

Half bottles! There are not many more accolades for Bodega Catena Zapata to receive. On April 1st, they were named by Drinks International the #1 most admired wine brand in the world. Their single-vineyard Malbec has been awarded 100 points in back to back vintages from two separate critics and they are also of course the winery that put Argentinian wine on the map to begin with. Their 2017 Estate Malbec is an absolutely dynamite bottle of zipped up, fresh and . Half bottle of wine that is— perfect for stocking up!
Get in quick before the scores! One of the most beloved brands in American wine has graciously allocated us another ten cases of their explosive 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is absolutely killer. In the textbook 2018 vintage in Napa, where sunny days were a staple from April to October, the Wagner Family crafted a big, powerful Cab with a dark ruby color, with ripe red fruits and silky smooth tannins.
Chad’s latest release is the 2018 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine. This Cabernet-based blend, a rich, teeth-staining wine, delivers way more power, fruit and finish than any other $25 Napa Valley red that I have tasted all year. It features aromas and flavors of black currant, plum, mocha and cigar box, leading to a packed middle core of black fruit. The ’18 Chad Prop Red displays the concentration and length generally found in bottles twice its price (that’s because what’s in the bottle IS twice the price!).
