A few suggestions…

A Best Selling Cab

Merryvale Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - BUY NOW

Pretty good price for a Cabernet this elegant and rich. Starmont is a kind of second label to the excellent producer, Merryvale, and this ‘07 shows a fine pedigree, as well as the general quality of the vintage. It’s dry and balanced, with complex blackberry, currant and oak flavors.

Holiday Wine Pairing: Chocolate Truffles


A 90-Point Wine Under $20

Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2009 - BUY NOW

This is an oaky, leesy Chardonnay, and quite a good one. Although it’s super rich in fruit, it shows a crisply acidic minerality that grounds it and makes it serious. That fruit is wildly forward in pineapple tart, pear butter, Key lime pie and golden apricot. Editors’ Choice.

Holiday Wine Pairing: Sweet & Sour Ham (also Figgy Pudding)

A Sparkling #48 From The Wine Spectator Top 100

Mumm Napa Brut Prestige - BUY NOW

Assembled from dozens of individual lots, this sumptuous brut is an example of the art of blending. Based on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, its really as delicious and refined a sparkling wine as you could want for drinking now. Shows lush citrus, strawberry, honey, melon, fig and spice flavors that are wrapped into a smooth, silky bubbling mouthfeel.

A Dreamy Gift Set

California Dreaming Wine Trio Wine Gift Set - BUY NOW


Freemark Abbey Sauvignon Blanc
The aroma is white peach, with lemon grass, subtle mandarin orange and a slight oak spice. The flavor expresses a minerality complimenting fruit components of citrus, green melon, lemon grass and mandarin orange.

Murphy-Goode Sarah Block Cabernet Sauvignon
This silky wine has beautiful balance and structure, promising excellent aging potential. Rich and complex, it fills the palate with bright flavors of black raspberry, cassis, violets and just a hint of juniper.

Byron Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County
Dark berries, cherries, rose petal, red plum, brown spice and smoke. This is a forward, approachable wine that displays the beautiful floral & mineral character typical of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir. 

Remember… Enter code SHIP10 during checkout for the 2-day priority shipping by Dec 24.  For the $25.00 one-time shipping fee for all of 2011, use the code SSHOLIDAY.
