Free on Fridays Wine Tasting – Sample Some of the Top California Wine Values! Friday, October 21st, 4-7pm.
If you think it’s impossible to find great California value wines, think again! Yeah, you have to search for them a little bit harder, but they are out there and we are really good at finding them. Join us this Friday as we present you with 3 Top California Values to quench your Patriotic thirst! We tasted them, we loved them, we bought them, and we are excited to present them to you. To start, we’ll pour you the 2015 Grayson Cellars Chardonnay, our new Case of the Month Selection. Trust us folks, this is one of the best Chardonnay values in the world and the 2015 is one of the best vintages of this wine we’ve ever tasted. Next up, it’s the fresh new vintage of one of the best Zinfandel values in the state. Rich, spicy, round and perfect for chili and football, the Four Vines “Truant” Zinfandel cannot be beat for the price. We’ll finish up with a rich and robust Cab from Paso Robles’ Ancient Peaks Winery. Retailing for less than $20, you will be hard pressed to find a better domestic Cab for the money. All you have to do is stop by, taste, learn, and save!

1. 2015 Grayson Cellars Chardonnay (Various Regions, California) – This took “Best in Class,” and was rated 98 points by the judges at this year’s California State Fair Wine Competition. Yep, this under-$15 Chardonnay beat out 300+ other Chardonnays in the biggest and oldest wine competition in the United States. Possessing loads of ripe apple, peach, tangerine and mango balanced by crisp acidity and just a kiss of oak, this Chardonnay is totally legit.
2. 2012 Four Vines Zinfandel “Truant” (Various Regions, California) – The tag line at Four Vines is “Living in Zin,” and we would tend to agree that the team lives up to that philosophy. Their entry level wine combines purchased fruit from a number of Zinfandel hotspots scattered throughout the state. Aged for 12 months in oak, the resulting wine is juicy, spicy, and pleasure bent with notes of ripe berries, plum, vanilla and spice box.
3. 2014 Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles, California) – Paso Robles is highly noted for their Zinfandels and Rhone-styled blends, but we think the vintners of the region deserve a lot more respect for the Cabernet Sauvignons that are coming out these days. Here’s a prime example of why! This is just stellar and classically styled Cab with notes of dark currant, dark cherry, cassis, and zesty herbal nuances. With ample body and big flavor, but soft tannins and a supple mouthfeel, this is a great go-to red for cooler weather drinking.
