J. Lohr - October Night Chardonnay Arroyo Seco 2017 +225375 $34.95

“The 2017 October Night Chardonnay is pale straw yellow in color, with exotic floral aromas of gardenia, tangerine, baked pear, honeysuckle, and baking spices. Traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques, such as weekly stirring of the lees in French oak barrels, were used to complement these aromatics, providing a creamy palate texture. This unique Chardonnay blend provides balanced and complex flavors of ripe citrus, white peaches, and offers a hint of sweet chocolate and toasted oak on the long finish.” - Kristen Barnhisel, winemaker, white wine.

Food Pairing: This wine is the perfect pairing to eggs benedict, crab cakes with creamy orange reduction sauce, cedar plank salmon, or almond-crusted halibut.


94 Pts – Rich Cook, wine reviewonline.com, March 19, 2019


“This hugely popular bottling is so for a reason, and that reason includes a viscous feel, apple pear and honey flavors and aromas, a crisp acid kiss at the end where generous oak spice come forward. A great cocktail all by itself. A Platinum Award winner at the 2019 Monterey International Wine Competition.”

Chateau Peyros – Vieilles Vignes Madiran 2015 +243997 $20.95

Red cherry robe, intense and brilliant. The nose is now well opened with intense notes of fruits (cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant) with notes of vanilla and lightly toasted. The mouth is both powerful and elegant. Tannins are present and well coated. On the palate, fruit aromas are really dominating with a long finish.

Food pairing: roasted meat, (lamb, beef), saucy meat, spicy beef tartar, duck breast.


93 Pts & Editors’ Choice – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, June 1, 2019


“This blend of 80% Tannat and 20% Cabernet Franc is dense and boldly structured. Firm tannins dominate the powerful black-fruit flavor, producing a wine that still needs more aging. Drink from 2022.”

Pierre Sparr – Gewurtzaminer Reserve 2017 +747600 $18.95

Featuring bright yellow highlights, this wine offers an exuberant aromatic palette of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, apricot), flowers (rose, acacia), citrus and spices with a subtle thread of honey. On the palate, this Gewurztraminer is a full-bodied wine with solid structure and flavours that mirror the aromas plus a hint of anise. The rich, mouth-filling character lingers, seducing another sip.

91 Pts – Natalie MacLean, June 22, 2019


“Produced by Pierre Sparr, this reserve Gewürztraminer with its pronounced rosewater, lychee, pink grapefruit aromas always delights More lychee, pineapple, grapefruit and rosewater flavours long and zesty on the palate. Pair with grilled pork chops.”
