Red Wines:

Chateau Marjolaine Bordeaux…
   French Bordeaux that is a Merlot and Cabernet blend.  This is a softer juicier style of Bordeaux than we are used to, not as much earth and herbs but more bright fruits.
Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel…
     Big fruited Zinfandel.  Loads of bright red Raspberry and strawberry fruits dominate this delicious wine from a well known Zinfandel producer.
Monchiero Nebbiolo D’ Alba…
     Tart, intense Italian fruit from the Nebbiolo grape, which is the grape in Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
Kenwood Merlot…
     Soft juicy Sonoma fruits.  Elegant Red and blue fruit on the mid palate, just like Merlot should be.
Chapillion Siendra…
     Spanish blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  This is a very earthy dry wine the first day, but on the second day the fruit really comes alive.
White Wines:
Cameron Hughes lot #412 Chardonnay…
     Juice from the Arroyo Secco in the central coast of California.  This wine has incredible balance of fruit and body, texture and acidity.  Nice expression of tropical fruit.
Albert Bichot Pouilly Fuisse…
     New vintage of a fan favorite.  This white Burgundy is 100% Chardonnay grapes and gets a touch of new oak.
Perrin Cotes Du Rhone Reserve Blanc…
      Bright crisp and clean white from the family who owns Chateau Beaucastel.  This is a Grenache Blanc based wine that is very refreshing and food friendly.
Dry Creek Dry Chenin Blanc
     Wow!  This wine is awesome.  Refreshing and crisp, tart and juicy all in one bottle.  Lighter body and full of tropical and stone fruits.
Sweet Lips Moscato
     Spanish version of a sweet effervescent grape with lovely nectar qualities.
