2011 Geja’s Big Bold Red
This wine is a red blend with a fierce attitude that forces you to sit up and pay attention. Old-vine Zinfandel grapes take the lead, giving the Big Bold Red a classic “big” wine taste. The Zin’s presence makes this a dry table wine with jammy black fruits. The real spine in the blend comes from the Petite Sirah’s pepper notes that help the Big Bold Red find it’s structure. Add in the red fruits from the Syrah and we have a truly remarkable wine on our hands.
2011 Black Fox Cellars Cabernet
The 2011 Black Fox Cabernet is a fruit-forward classic example of a great California Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the better known red wine grape varietals worldwide. Known as a prominent Bordeaux wine, expect to find it blended with Merlots and Cabernet Franc. California Cabernet’s are regarded nearly as highly as their French cousins, especially after the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris when a California Cab beat out some of Bordeaux’s best in a blind test by French experts. It’s also the second most planted grape in Washington State, after Merlot, and is also planted in Arizona, New York, Texas and Virginia. Cabernet wines are dense, dark and tannic and many have a strong black fruit flavor.
2012 Monarch Glen Merlot
This 2011 Merlot is a wine you’ll fall in love with on the first silky, smooth sip you take. Its inviting aromas of sweet berry and cherry jump out of the glass, while harmonious flavors of berry, plum and spice create a deliciously full-bodied taste experience. Enjoy it all on its own around the fireside, or alongside your dinner plate as the perfect complement to roast chicken, beef roast or even thick, juicy burgers.
2012 La Petite Tour Classic White
La Petite Tour wines were introduced more than 30 years ago. This blend of white grapes has remained the family's favorite. It was only made in small lots for their own table, until now. Exclusive to Wine Insiers, it is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surpisingly bright citrus notes. And, it's a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables.
2012 Cannery Row Chardonnay
Based in Monterey County along California’s famed Central Coast, the talented winemaker blended fruit from a cool-climate vineyard along the Arroyo Seco riverbed with a small lot from a warm inland valley. The result: a stylish, delicious, classic California Chardonnay. Its fresh fruit aromas lead to flavors of apple, nectarine and ripe juicy melon. A hint of toasty oak and vanilla from oak aging adds depth and complexity, while a balancing acidity keeps it refreshing.
2012 Spencer Sauvignon Blanc
Crisp flavors of grapefruit and green apple with note of ripe fig distinguish this fruit-forward, award-winning selection. Produced from a vineyard established more than 100 years ago by descendants of European winemakers, its grapes provide a marvelous complexity and balance. The winemaker reccommends serving this delicate treat with grilled seafood in a butter or cream sauce. And it brings out the best in veggie dishes like spinach and cheese-stuffed pasta shells.
