FEATURING:

John Anthony Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013  

Sale: $59.99   Winery: $75

91pts Robert Parker - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a nice wine, powerful and rich, showing loads of crème de cassis and hefty alcohol (15.2%), but that’s well disguised behind a cascade of a delicious fruit. The wine shows virtually no oak, has beautiful balance, a medium to full body, nice purity and texture. This is a somewhat under-the-radar producer turning out fine, outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon, and in a vintage like 2013 has certainly hit pay dirt.”

FARM Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013  

Our Price: $39.99

93pts James Suckling - "Lots of tar, blackberry and charcoal on the nose. Full body, rich and velvety tannins and plenty of fruit. Yet comes clean and poised. Very pretty now to drink but will improve with age."

92pts Robert Parker - "An attractive wine with terrific purity of Cabernet, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense ruby/purple color, a floral, blueberry and blackcurrant-scented nose, medium to full body, nothing out of place, with light but sweet tannin and adequate acidity. By Napa standards, this is a heck of a value and a wine certainly capable of being drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years. A sleeper of the vintage for sure."

FARM Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015 

Our Price: $21.99

The 2015 Chardonnay FARM by John Anthony is reminiscent of some of the old-style Chardonnays in that it is explosively rich, with plenty of tropical fruit, peach marmalade and honeysuckle, but to its credit, there is little oak to be found. This is just beautifully pure fruit and one could call it (and I mean this in a positive sense) a Chardonnay fruit bomb.

JaM Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2014   

Our Price: $14.99   Winery: $20

Rich, bold and luscious, this easy-to-love Cabernet is all about the fruit. Harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of great Californian winemaking, there’s plenty of soft, dark berries and plums on the nose and palate. Aging in our own blend of new oak smooths and rounds this wine, adding a touch of vanilla that’s uniquely JaM Cabernet!
