Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve 2004 Chardonnay Jackson Estates

Sweet cedar, tobacco and spice mingle with dried blueberry, milk chocolate, slight anise and hot cinnamon aromas. The mid-palate reveals spicy, toasty, briary flavors highlighted by blueberry, caramel and roasted coffee bean. This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a long, briary finish accented by milk chocolate, tobacco, cherry and dried blueberry. Enjoy now or cellar for ten years.
Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Wine Spectator 91 Highly Recommended "Smooth and creamy, with rich, concentrated, graceful blackberry, vanilla, seductive toasty oak and wild berry flavors. Excellent balance, depth and length, ending with chewy yet flavorful tannins and a chocolate brownie nuance. Drink now through 2009. 3,186 cases made
Rosenblum "Annette Reserve" Zinfandel

Setti Ponti Saia Nero D'Avola 2002 (6 Pack)

This delicious bubbly -- mostly Chenin Blanc, plus 10% Chardonnay -- mixes spicy yeast with clove and herb scents. Full-bodied fruit flavors follow, with a slight hint of candied sweetness. The finish wraps you in hints of vanilla and light toast.
Bouvet Signature Brut

A richer and slightly darker color than the Verna’s pinot noir, this wine exhibits more red and black fruits such as currants, cassis and plum. Spice aromatics stretch the gamut from clove and incense to sandalwood and orange-spice tea. Earthy elements of pomegranate, red beets, brine and minerals also shine through. The mouthfeel is plush and velvety with excellent presence while countered by a structural backbone of acidity giving the wine completeness and resolve .
Melville Pinot Noir
