WINES OF THE WEEK
OUR PRICE $149.99
93pts Wine Enthusiast-This vintage of the hearty proprietary blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc highlights the best of the harvest. It’s dense with mouth-coating red fruit and a touch of sweetness from oak. As it unwinds, more developed graphite, black olive and dried herb accents come to life.
92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate-The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Profile, their Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and usually meant to represent the flagship dry red of the winery, has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of wood char, spice box, blackberry and blueberry, this starts to kick up the level of tannin in this medium to full-bodied, long-term wine. This does require some patience, and 4-5 years is suggested.

Beginning in 1993 and following in the tradition of great Bordeaux estates, Opus One created a fine second wine called Overture. Every acre of the estate vineyard is meticulously farmed with the attention to detail and singular focus required to produce Opus One. This scrutiny carries through the blending process and certain lots will not be included in the final Opus One blend. Yet, when these lots are afforded additional time in barrel along with the added flexibility of blending across multiple vintages, the final wine achieves a remarkable elegance and complexity.
Overture displays a vibrant garnet color with expressive aromas of fresh red fruit. Notes of bright cherry and red currant are underpinned by more earthy tones of ground cocoa, cedar and vanilla. Extended barrel aging gives the wine an elegant texture accentuated by round tannins and a soft mouthfeel.

93pts Wine Spectator- The 2014 Isosceles is exceptionally approachable early on with generous black fruit, spice and balanced textures, but ultimately structured to last for years in your cellar.
For more than 25 vintages, Isosceles has been Justin's flagship wine and quality benchmark for this style of wine here on the Central Coast of California. A blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2014 Isosceles is a perfect example of what makes Paso Robles such a great place to grow these varieties.
Blend: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot
Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014
SALE $49.99 - $70 WINERY
95 Points Antionio Galoni (Vinous): "Deceptively medium in body, the 2014 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard packs a real punch. Succulent red cherry, rose petal, lavender and violet are all pushed forward, but it is the wine's inner sweetness and aromatics that stand out. Today, the KV comes across as very restrained, with bright acids and fabulous balance. A rush of sweet red cherry, blueberry and pomegranate leave a lasting impression. The 2014 is going to need a bit of time in bottle to unwind, but it is super.”
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2015
SALE $34.99 - $45 WINERY
91pts Wine Enthusiast-This Chardonnay is a wine of distinction, with bright aromas of Meyer lemon peel and orange blossom framed by an herbal note of spearmint and hints of wet stone and shortbread. The elegant, balanced palate is driven by citrus and stone fruit that carryover onto a long finish marked with the distinctive acidity of the Sonoma Coast.
