Winter Wine Picks
Hearsay Semillon/ Sauvignon Blanc – Because I love Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion, this wine is always at the top of my list! There is also just a hint of Muscat Canelli in this wine which really shows the tropical fruit on the palate. Only 420 cases produced of this little gem.
Was $17.99 NOW $11.99
Milliaire Pinot Grigio – Something different in a Pinot Grigio from a part of California most people have never heard of. This lady hails from Calaveras Co. which is southeast of Sacramento in the Sierra Foothills region. Steve Milliaire has been making wine for other people since 1981 and we fell in love with his own brand two years ago. His Pinot Grigio is a terrific beverage that is light and crisp, with slender hints of refreshing grapefruit. Pleasant and well balanced. This wine pairs well with seafood and poultry.
Hoopla Chardonnay – Who doesn’t like a label with a dog on the front! This isn’t just any dog however, this is Dante The Terrior! He loves this Chardonnay because of its clear bright golden color! From the first pour, it explodes from the glass with tropical fruits, guava and crisp bright citrus notes, with a rich warm malted element that derives from our use of 10% barrel fermentation. In the mouth, it is bright, with a generous round viscosity. The clean crisp finish will have you wanting more. It sees 90% stainless and 10% barrel.
Was $15.99 NOW $12.99
Andis GSM – We have had quite the following of Andis wines over the past year. The Andis Winery is a fairly new facility and sits in beautiful Amador Co. which is known for wonderful reds! The GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedere) is brand new to the shop and I couldn’t help but choose this little guy for one of my fall picks. This wine features rich and robust flavors of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and black licorice that dance on your palate.
Cherry Cove Pinot Noir – How could we let Thanksgiving slide by without an Oregon Pinot Noir! This Cherry bomb comes from our friends at Coleman Vineyards in Willamette Valley. The ruby color of this wine suggests “classic Pinot” as the nose opens with fresh lavender and plum jam. Across the palate are vibrant tones, from explosive red cherry on entry to the lush strawberry on the lively mid-palate. Lingering floral tones hang for just a moment and carry through the soft finish. This is a steal for the price!
Esser Cabernet – I always like to choose a Cabernet in the Thanksgiving picks because not everyone sits at a traditional table with turkey. Many customers tend to seek out game or beef instead. This award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from the Central Coast in CA. It elicits deep aromas of black cherry, plum, dark chocolate and oak spice. This lovely wine also contains mouth filling flavors of black fruits, cocoa and vanilla are balanced with integrated tannins and a lingering finish of sweet fruit and subtle spices. Perfect for cool weather!

2013 Envy Cabernet
was $54.99 now $34.99
Don’t miss this sale while supplies last!
A stunning year for the Envy Vineyards, the Cabernet Sauvignon was selectively picked in three separate passes. The wine from this harvest presents a powerful core surrounded by fruit dimensions including cassis, black currant and hints of charred coconut and vanilla. A superbly balanced and flavorful Napa Cabernet that will only get better with age.
The origins of Envy Wines began in the mid 1980’s when the historic Carter House Victorian was built. When this small bed and breakfast became too popular for the crowd from the cities up and down the west coast the Hotel Carter was added and a restaurant (the highly regarded Restaurant 301) was needed for the guests. For the guests at the restaurant Mark Carter began compiling what has become (since 1998) a Wine Spectator Grand Award winning wine list. He began sourcing the best wines the world had to offer from first growth Bordeaux to the top Napa Cabernet and even the high quality, little-known gems that helped the wine list stand out. Because of the great recognition of the restaurant and its wine list Mark was able to host winemaker dinners with the likes of Dan Duckhorn and Nils Venge.
Mark and Nils became fast friends at these dinners while sharing their all encompassing passion for great wines. Mark wanted to expand his love of wines with his own wine label, Carter Cellars. His goal was to create the best Napa Cabernet that could be made. Nils Venge, the superstar winemaker responsible for receiving the first “perfect score” on a domestic wine from Robert M. Parker Jr. while at Groth in 1985, seemed like the perfect match on this quest for perfection.
Mark and Nils began looking for a permanent home for Carter Cellars and for a small Napa Winery at which they could produce wines from estate grown fruit. In 2006 they founded Envy Winery on Tubbs Lane in Calistoga. This 17 acre property specializes in Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc . Envy Wines has grown steadily over the years, and now produces nearly 2,500 cases of wine with grapes from our Estate Vineyard as well as several select vineyards throughout the Napa Valley.
If you like great Napa Cabs from boutique, small production wineries, this one is for you!
