Mark Herold

Uproar Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 

OUR PRICE $64.99

Mark Herold’s fascination with wine started in his childhood home in Panama City. On his twelfth birthday he liberated a bottle of Port from his father's cellar. Undeterred from the horrendous hangover that followed the next morning, he set about to learn as much as he could about wine.

Merus was a labor of love that Mark started in 1998—a Cult Cabernet Sauvignon that he made in his garage in downtown Napa.  Mark started his consulting business soon after with a client list that has included Hestan, Kamen, Harris, Buccella, Kobalt, Celani Family Vineyards, Maze and The Vineyardist.

Erupting from the glass are big aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry, strawberry and mocha. The subtle notes violets, sun-baked quartz and cured black olives add incredible dimension to this wine. Mouth-filling, hedonistic and head turning flavors of black and purple fruits are framed by sweet, velvety tannins. Yum! This approachable Cabernet was built to be your go to bottle any day of the week.

Siduri

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

OUR PRICE $21.99 

New Vintage!

Adam and Dianna Lee at Siduri make a lot of really great wines; many of them single vineyard bottles from growers they have had relationships for years. So if they are doing a regional blend, you know it is going to be good, and this is one of the best examples of affordable Pinot Noir from this west coast wine region. This wine is full of energy with bright cherry fruit and lively acidity pronouncing aromas of savory white pepper and a forest floor in October. There is a depth of currant and plum jam to round it all out, making for one hell of an easy-on-the-wallet drinking experience.

Trefethen Estate

Chardonnay 2017   

SALE $24.99  WINERY $38

A beautiful gold color illuminates the glass and aromas of lemon, honeysuckle and pear greet the nose. The fresh palate features more citrus flavors, as well as green apple, and a clean finish. The oak influence in this wine is subtle but important, adding a note of vanilla on the nose and a pleasant roundness on the palate. Another classic vintage of Trefethen Chardonnay!

Joel Gott

Sauvignon Blanc 2017   

#62 TOP 100 OF 2018

SALE $8.99   WINERY $15

90 Wine Spectator

Juicy pear, peach and citrus flavors are bright and smooth, with a touch of dried chamomile and lemon verbena lingering on the finish. Impressive for the focus and aromatic detail. Drink now.

90 Wine Enthusiast

This full-bodied wine is delicious, layered, complex and well balanced. It is compelling from the first whiff of melon and fig to the rich, concentrated palate. Best Buy


Austerity

Pinot Noir 2016    

OUR PRICE $12.99   

Great Santa Lucia Pinot for the money!

Ruby color. Aromas of toasted rosemary, sage, and spiced cherries with a satiny, tangy, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-long cinnamon-clove, pomegranate, sap, and beets in tangy vinaigrette finish with well-integrated tannins and light oak flavor. An herbal Pinot Noir that will bloom with cellaring.
