2009 Iron Horse Classic Vintage Brut – WE 93pts

Jenn’s $29.99 / Retail $39.99

The 2009 Classic Vintage Brut is a "classic" blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, a traditional and elegant showcase of the 2009 vintage, with over three years on the yeast and "brut" level dry. On the nose, aromas of rising dough, orange marmalade and baked apple accompanied by flavors of ripe red apple, mandarin orange and hazelnut. A perfect sparkling wine with food.

 

2010 Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee – WE 95pts

Jenn’s $29.99 / Retail $39.99

This is Iron Horse's Blanc de Noirs, made from predominantly Pinot Noir. It has a beautiful rose color. Rich and creamy, like pure strawberries and cream, this is without doubt the most romantic of our Sparklings. It is dangerously easy to drink. A favorite for many, Iron Horse is probably best known for this cuvee.

 

2012 Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay – WE 93pts

Jenn’s $19.99 / Retail $24.99

The nose is complex, including touches of pineapple, melon, green apple, kiwi, and yeast. The palate shows minerality, pineapple, lime, and a gentle mouth feel (a result of extensive batonnage).

 

2012 Robin K Chardonnay Russian River

Jenn’s $19.99 / Retail $24.99

Fifteen months of aging in 25% new French oak yielded a fully integrated wine with concentrated flavors of ripe red apple, tropical fruits, lemon spice and apple custard. The wine’s creamy finish gives it versatility with a wide range of dishes, but pairings with seafood and white meats will be especially rewarded.

 

 

2011 Robin K Cabernet Dry Creek Valley

Jenn’s $19.99 / Retail $24.99

Aromas of black cherry, cigar box, caramel, dried herbs de Provence, and vanilla bean complement a palate of velvety tannins and a long finish flavored by cassis, sweet black cherry, buttered toast and oak spice.

 

2012 Robin K Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Jenn’s $20.99 / Retail $26.99

A well-delineated nose has fragrant scents of black cherry and dark fruits, and hints of violets, plum and vanilla spice. The wine’s structure is built around a lively mouthfeel and an elegant mid palate, and ripe, focused tannins balance fine acidity in a bold and concentrated finish. The wine is delicate enough to pair with seafood and lighter dishes, but hearty enough for roasted meats and more substantial fare.

 

2012 Ricardo Santos Malbec – WE 91pts

Jenn’s $21.99 / Retail $29.99

Striking deep brilliant purple color. The nose is ripe and full, reminiscent of dark cherries, plums, and chocolate with undertones of loam and earth. In the mouth, the wine displays a profound core of ripe, blackberry jam fruit, lengthening into a sophisticated weighty finish coupled with an elegant silkiness.

 

2007 Madrone Ridge Zinfandel

Jenn’s $27.99 / Retail $34.99

This Old Vine Zinfandel comes from vineyards in the Sonoma Valley planted in the early part of the last century. We produce this wine using traditional methods including fermentation in small open top fermenters and hand punch downs twice a day. Known for being among the coolest climates where Zinfandel is grown, which allows for a longer growing season and fully developed flavors, our Sonoma Valley Old Vine Zinfandel has bright and complex flavors and aromas of raspberries, cherries and blackberries with hits of pepper, vanilla and cedar.

 

2013 Teira Sauvignon Blanc

Jenn’s $14.99 / Retail $19.99

Our Estate Sauvignon Blanc strikes the elusive balance

between new world and old world style on the nose

and palate. Classic Sancerre-like aromas of minerals,

lemon zest, and citrus on the nose. Light and crisp on

the attack, the mid-palate shows strong and viscous

tropical fruit notes of kiwi, grapefruit and tangerine.

Balance, weight and elegance are key descriptors of this

wine. Light, crisp and dry, this wine finishes extremely

clean with a bright acidity that begs for another sip.

 

2011 Teira Zinfandel

Jenn’s $18.99 / Retail $25.99

Who doesn't like a juicy Zinfandel with burgers on a

sunny summer's day? This Zin has levity: it keeps balance and refreshment, and avoids the heavy-porty-overly alcoholic thing too common in Cali Zins.

 

2012 Juan Gil 18 Messes Jumilla

Jenn’s $26.99 / Retail $34.99

I cannot find any tasting notes or reviews on this wine; but if you have had the Juan Gil Silver Label – this is the big brother. Absolutely delicious!

 

2013 Kentia Albarino Rias Baixas

Jenn’s $12.99 / Retail $17.99

Bright straw.  High-pitched aromas of lime and quince, with deeper pear and melon qualities emerging with air.  Silky and expansive, offering vibrant honeydew and citrus sorbet flavors and a jolt of bracing minerality.  Closes silky and long, with a sexy floral nuance.

 

2013 Honoro Vera Garnacha

Jenn’s $8.99 / Retail $12.99

It exhibits greater aromatic complexity, richness with mineral and blueberry notes leading to a savory and spicy wine nicely balanced and very easy to drink.

 

2013 Honoro Vera Rueda

Jenn’s $8.99 / Retail $12.99

From free-run juice, the new wine is racked into large, centuries-old subterranean oak vessels prior to clarification and bottling. A highly extractive, herbaceous and minerally-complex Rueda with excellent aging capacity and a perennial hallmark wine for the region.

 

2013 Arindo Rueda

Jenn’s $10.99 / Retail $13.99

While a number of varieties call this stretch of the Duero River home, Verdejo is really Rueda’s calling card. Northwest of Madrid this region is made up of sandy gravel and lime rich alluvial soils. Verdejo takes well to these bearing lime and blossom on the nose and a chalky seashell mineral on its crisp, citric palate. Despite its jumpy acidity, this Verdejo’s full bodied structure and fleshy midpalate round it out nicely –and what better white to slake a mighty Spanish thirst?
