DANCING CROWS SAUVIGNON BLANC $19.99
Our Sancerre-style Sauvignon Blanc from Lake County, CA, showcases a unique blend of New World and Old World influences, with Citrus and Stone-Fruit flavors supporting nicely-balanced acidity and a hint of minerality on the finish.

JAX VINEYARDS Y3 PINOT NOIR $32.99
Bright ruby in color and scented with red raspberry and Darjeeling tea,
this lively expression of Russian River Valley fruit dispels layers of blackberries
and Bing cherry along with subtle hints of vanilla and forest floor.
Supple tannins and balanced acidity grace a long finish.
This wine was bottled unfiltered and unrefined.


DANCING CROWS ZINFANDEL, LAKE COUNTY $19.99
At first sight, Dancing Crow Zinfandel shows off a dark purplish red robe with a fuschia rim in the glass.  The wine has deliciously juicy aromas of balsamic strawberries, red currant, boysenberry, plum, spice and purple flower. As one might expect with a Zinfandel, the Dancing Crow is nicely bold with full with flavors of black licorice, strawberry and raspberry that come in for a landing with soft tannins and a smooth finish.  Fun to drink by the glass, this is a fresh textured wine that also goes perfectly with Chicago style pan pizza, beef bolognese lasagna, salumi and sharp cheeses. 

CATERWAUL SONOMA SILVER CABERNET SAUVIGNON $49.99 
The fruit for this bottling was sourced from the southeast corner of Sonoma County, almost touching the Napa County line. We were awestruck when we had the opportunity to purchase such high-quality old vine Cabernet Sauvignon from a site defined by gravelly loam soils in the shadow of Mount Saint Helena. This wine starts with opulent, mouth-coating, sleek dark fruit. The wine shows off an inky purple hue in the glass with a saturated violet halo. Vivid aromas suggest notes of roasted meat, cigar box, and crushed blueberries. The sumptuous palate expresses notes of currant reduction, cocoa, wild sage and dried black cherry. The plush, round mouthfeel is framed by exotic notes of baking spices and a fine tannin framework. We are so excited to see this wine come to life and believe this will be a benchmark for exceptional quality Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon at a fabulous price point.
