Black Rock “Wild Cat White”, Lake County California (suggested retail $22.99) Stored in 59-gallon one year old Eastern European Oak barrels, the wine remained sur-lees for a period of eight months during which it was stirred every two weeks.  A Complex wine made from a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.  This medium-bodied wine joins together soft succulent aromatic flavors of citrus, floral, figs and lanolin.  This wine provides a wonderful accompaniment to roasted chicken, poached seafood, raw oysters, asparagus, grilled vegetables and herbs.

Concannon Conservancy Chardonnay, Livermore Valley California (suggested retail $14.99)  Established in 1883, Concannon is the oldest continually operating winery in California under the same family name.  They now have four generations of family involvement in the winery.  These wines are produced with grapes sourced from the Livermore Valley vineyards, which are protected by a conservation trust to ensure that the land is preserved as a wine production region and not overtaken by urban sprawl. A little bit of yellow delicious apple, honey, citrus and perfume give this wine a decent nose. Apple and lime juice flavors dominate the palate.  It has a nice, fresh and clean taste, with a light touch of oak on the finish.

Chateau La Borie Rouge, Bordeaux France (suggested retail $10.99)  A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, this wine is from one of the best years from Bordeaux's last decade. It exhibits aromas of cassis, black currant and toasty oak and herbal notes.  Try this wine with lamb shoulder, duck breast with green peppercorn sauce.

Peirano Estate “The Immortal Zin” Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi, California (suggested retail $14.99)  Gnarley, twisted and over 100 years old, Peirano Estate Vineyards old head pruned natural rooted Zinfandel vines continue to retain their immortal status.  They have seen 6 generations of Peiranos tend to them.  With aromas like sweet strawberries and red cherries, and flavors as ripe as the aromas, this medium- to full-bodied wine is tempting, smooth and polished. It tastes refined but still lets loose a lot of fruit power. The balance is on the soft side, with mild tannins and subdued acidity.

Vigna Traverso “Troj” Colli Orientali del Friuli, Italy (suggested retail $28.99)  Troj Rosso is a unique blend of two local varietals, Refosco and Schioppettino, and the Bordeaux varietal, Merlot. It is a racy, mouthwatering red that is well-structured, dry, and has a round fruitiness in the finish. The robust aroma emits notes reminiscent of black cherry and raspberry. Perfectly suited for cellaring, the full-bodied flavor improves significantly as the wine ages, acquiring pleasant, peppery overtones. This wine is the ideal partner for grilled rabbit, charcuterie products and other roasted and grilled meats.

Babcock “Upper Crust” Syrah, Santa Barbara California (suggested retail $39.99)   Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave this wine 92 points: “This Syrah is addictively drinkable. It’s so round and smooth, so complete, and above all so delicious in flavors. They range from crushed, ripe summer blackberries and cassis to black pepper and dark chocolate and, if you’re familiar with it, the Jewish dessert, hamantaschen, which are prune-filled pastry tarts. The grapes come from the well-regarded Rancho Sisquoc Vineyard.”
