NV J Vineyard Brut Cuvee

Opens with a pop of tart pineapple and orange blossom on the wonderfully aromatic nose. The palate is lively and rich with layered notes of Asian pear and honeysuckle, overlaying hints of fresh mandarin peel and marzipan before a zesty, focused finish..

2017 Harken Barrel Fermented Chardonnay
Monterey, Central Coast, California
This rich Chardonnay exhibits a classic profile of tropical fruit and Bosc pear alongside warm oak aromatics. The luscious palate suggests crème brulée and buttered toast, and finishes with fresh acidity. 90 Pts The Tasting Panel

2015 Hedges CMS Red Blend
Columbia Valley, Washington
65% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah
Dark, deep ruby color. Aromas of fresh plum, raspberry, cocoa powder, cinnamon and cloves and a touch of dried herbs and smoke. Bursting with bright berry flavors, vanilla cream, cocoa and cinnamon. The mid-palate and finish are lush and full but with just the right balance of tartness and astringency. A great food wine, but also very pleasing to sip on while pondering life.
BTG $7.00 Retail $14.99

2015 Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet
Sonoma County, California
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Verdot
This Cabernet is built each vintage on the notion of a Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins crafted for immediate enjoyment. Aromas and flavors of dark red fruit led by raspberry, black cherry and evident oak spice are joined with more traditional Knights Valley tones of black and blue fruits. A touch of licorice and mocha round out a lingering, pleasant finish.

2016 Exitus Bourbon Barrel Red
Fresno County, California,
This bourbon barrel aged red wine is fermented in American stainless steel and then aged for 3 months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This bold blend of Zinfandel, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon provide a deep ruby color with aromas of blackberry compote, leather and dusty dark chocolate. Bourbon barrel aging offers aromas of fire-toasted oak, baking spices, caramel and loose-leaf tobacco. On the shelf, you may notice that Exitus doesn’t look like your typical bottle of red wine. That’s because it doesn’t hide behind tinted glass. Why should you have to wait until your first pour to experience the rich crimson hue of our bourbon barrel aged blend? Instead of traditional shaded bottles that mask the color of the wine inside. Exitus bucks tradition with a clear glass bottle that showcases what matters most.
