The Wines!!!

Gainey Ranch Sauvignon Blanc $15.99
Produced entirely from grapes we cultivate at our Home Ranch in eastern Santa Ynez Valley, our Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc boasts bright citrus, honeydew melon, mineral and subtle herb aromas. On the palate, the wine is rich, mouthwatering and beautifully structured, with vibrant grapefruit, melon and guava flavors culminating in a long, crisp finish invigorated by zesty citrus, spice and mineral tones. Delicious now with a broad range of seafood, poultry and salad dishes, it will develop further nuance with another 1-2 years of bottle age. 

Joleto Pinot Gris Willamette Valley $22.99
Harvested from two of Oregon's top old-vine vineyard sources – Olenik Vineyard (Chehalem Mountains AVA) and Lazy River Vineyard (Yamhill-Carlton AVA). The Joleté Pinot Gris was pressed and tank fermented in September 2015, having 10% oak-fermented Olenik fruit added to the final blend for desired texture. The resulting wine shows a natural balance of citrus, fruit, and minerality indicative of its AVA sources, with a focused acidity that drives the apricot and melon character through the finish.

90-POINTS, Wine Enthusiast Editors' Choice: "This marries New World ripeness to Euro styling. Plump apple and pear fruit carries highlights of bee pollen and honey, with excellent grip and length." - Paul Gregutt, 2016

Trim Chardonnay California $14.99

Trim Cabernet Sauvignon $14.99
TRIM is a well-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from outstanding vineyards in California. Our winemaking team works with some of the best vineyards to produce a lush, well balanced, and fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the best valued wine on the market.

Sophisticated Flavor, Sensible Value

Edge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa $24.99
The main reason behind EDGE is to give our customers a premium Cabernet Sauvignon, without the premium price. EDGE is the most reasonable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that one will find on the shelf, which does not compromise on quality.
Blended by a notable winemaker, EDGE Cabernet Sauvignon drinks wonderfully now, and will age well for five to eight years. Edge spent 16 months in French oak barrels, of which 35% were new. It is a blend of Cabernet and a small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc
The partnership that came together to produce this remarkable wine, not to mention exceptional value, has a long history in the wine, leisure, and investment sectors.

Ramon Bilbao Limited Edition Rioja 2013 $18.99

Intense ruby red with black-cherry glints. Deep robe. Clear and bright. High intensity on the nose, with a perfect balance of dark fruit and oak. The spicy nuances play a key role, with black pepper, cloves and cumin. Clean wood aromas with notes of cocoa, dry tobacco leaves and mint. Smooth, fruity mouth-feel with a long finish. Pleasant, polished tannins. Good acidity and in the retronasal phase a faithful reflection of what you find on the nose.
It is a perfect wine to accompany beef, smoked dishes, soft cheeses and international cuisine such as Mexican or spicy Chinese dishes.

 Critical Acclaim WS 90 points!!
Wine Spectator - "Black cherry and red plum flavors are fresh and lively in this bright red. Tangerine acidity and light, firm tannins keep this focused. Spice and floral notes add interest on the finish. Drink now through 2023."
