We’re always here to help find the perfect bottle for you- but on those occasions when you are buying a gift for someone whose taste you don’t know, or throwing a party for people of varying tastes, it is nice to know what seems to be universal crowd pleasers.

Customer Choices for our Top 10 Reds
79% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah, 1% Primitivo. This vintage presents enticing aromatics of dried cranberry and boysenberry with hints of
cocoa powder, nutmeg, dried sage and cedar. On the palate, brambly flavors of blackberry and black cherry come forward with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of dark chocolate, espresso and black pepper. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure and a round, rich mouthfeel.
37% Zinfandel, 30% Malbec, 27% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Riesling. The end result of our winemaker’s passion for blending flavorful, deeply nuanced and unique wines. Exclusively from vineyards in Sonoma County, predominantly Alexander Valley and Knights Valley, our Red Blend offers a sumptuous, almost magical outcome of the growing season and winemaking process. This rich, supple wine bursts with blackberry and dark cherries with hints of spice followed by lush, rounded tannins and a lingering finish.
Steep hillside vineyards are difficult to maintain and harvest, but the results are worth it. A huge, rich, opulent wine with complex flavors of chocolate, coffee, blackberries, cassis, mint, and velvety tannins. Aged in new French oak adds further complexity with vanilla and toast as well as creating a round and supple texture on the palate. Concentrated, Rich.
An incredible value from Jean-Marc Lafage is the 2015 Tessellae Old Vines Grenache Syrah Mourvedre, which is 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from 70-year-old vines and brought up all in concrete tank. A ripe, expansive, full-bodied and undeniably sexy red that has beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, blueberries, pepper and violets, it has ripe and present tannin, straight up fabulous purity and a great finish. This is another one of those wines where you just have to tell yourself you spent more than you actually did. The wine really is this good. 93pts RP
Grenache – Syrah – Mourvèdre. A fresh and harmonious nose of red berries and spices. The ample palate comes with a flattering concentrated and rich structure and a remarkably elegant and fine finish.
48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Zinfandel, 7% Tannat. The 2017 Annabella red blend is bright and expressive right from the start. Aromas of raspberries, cocoa-dusted strawberries, and a hint of freshly roasted coffee leap from the glass. The mouth is jam packed with layers of extroverted flavors – raspberries, red cherry, and milk chocolate supported by structured oak and a well balanced acidity.
Sangiovese with a portion of Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep, brilliant and intense violet-red color. The nose reveals decisive cherry and raspberry aromas, followed by spicy hints of black pepper. Its main characteristic is its pleasantness, which combines elegance with balance and a pronounced softness.
Fruity, raspberry, red fruits. Light notes of vanilla and spice. Good balance of tannins and acidity. Finishing with notes of raspberry, vanilla and light notes of wood.
Delicate violet aromas, this classic Italian sangiovese is dry, well balanced and simply bursting with blackcurrant flavors that are balanced with soft tannins. This red wine pairs well with rich tomato-based pasta dishes including tagliatelle alla bolognese, and is an excellent accompaniment to roast beef and full flavored stews.
Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, Carignane, Syrah, Petite Sirah, & Grenache. Enjoy this medium-bodied luscious red with a variety of flavorful foods. It’s smooth with nicely balanced acidity, plum, chocolate, and berry notes and a smooth, rich finish.
