No charge for Tastings

2010 Jonata The Pairing White Blend Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier.
California
Offering up plenty of exotic green fruit, lychee, lemongrass and tropical notes, this medium-bodied, fresh and lively effort has great acidity, good texture and a clean, classy finish that has you coming back for another sip. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 Loring Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey, Central Coast, California
Offers up fantastic purity, loads of black and blue fruits, crushed flowers and even background meatiness to go with a seamless, voluptuous, yet also focused mouth feel. It’s impressive and should represent a smoking value. 91-93 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $10.50 Retail $27.99

2010 Jonata The Pairing Red Blend 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Petit Verdot
Santa Barbara, Central Coast, California, USA
Exhibits complex aromas and flavors of currants, spice box, underbrush, chocolate and subtle gamey notes that come through with additional time in the glass. Medium-bodied, rich and with more structure than the price point would lead you to believe, this rock-solid blend will drink nicely through 2018. 89 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99

2009 Northstar Merlot 81% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot
Columbia Valley, Washington
Offers a beautiful bouquet of black cherry, red currants, underbrush and toast as well as a perfectly balanced, silky and elegant feel in the mouth. Leaning heavily towards to finesse driven side of the spectrum, with silky tannin, medium body and moderate concentration, it will evolve gracefully for upwards of a decade. 92 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $11.00 Retail $29.99

2008 Col Solare 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Syrah
Colombia Valley
Shows a cool, elegant profile with black currant, mineral, smoke, wild herbs and graphite along with a medium to full-bodied, fresh and pure palate. Featuring clean, integrated acidity and a layered, pure profile, it has the structure to continue evolving gracefully for another decade or more. 93 Pts Wine Advocate
Retail $41.99
