New Arrivals

2012 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon

A prominent national wholesaler’s description of the 2012 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon ended with a great descriptor, “a tapestry of complexity and youthful exuberance.” Like all young Abeja Cabernet Sauvignons, the 2012 is tight and full, and is rich with minerality.

2013 Kevin White Wines

Kevin White is by day a computer wizard and by night a wine creator. His passion for the reds he produces comes from a personal love of Rhône wines, and the quest to create similar styles from Washington fruit. In 2013, he has found great success. His 2013 Kevin White Red ‘La Fraternité’ shows a remarkable resemblance to a wine from Lirac or Sant-Gervais. The 2013 Kevin White Syrah marries Olsen Vineyard with Elephant Mountain Vineyard fruit and leaves the varietal to be itself—100%Syrah. The 2013 Kevin White Red Reserve is a chunk of Boushey Vineyard Syrah with Olsen Vineyard Mourvèdre that is very “wild”.

Matanzas Creek Deals

The new releases of Matanzas Creek Chardonnay and Merlot are being offered at a super price to get a bit of traction in the market. The 2012 Matanzas Creek Chardonnay has a classic Sonoma Valley style—juicy, nutty, and rich, with acidity. The 2012 Matanzas Creek Merlot shows cranberry and dried cherry fruit, and a hint of cocoa powder from the oak aging. These are really good prices for well made wines.
