Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignona
We are particularly excited about this exclusive, barrel select Cabernet Sauvignon from California. First pass with your nose brings enticing aromas of ripe cherries, flowers, and cotton candy. After opening, this wine is even tastier if you let it sit for 30 minutes, giving the delicious flavors the chance to stretch out. No matter how long you wait, the first sip will have you savoring bright cherries, cassis, and ripe blackberries with a full and pleasing mouth feel and smooth, easy-going finish.

Black Fox Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular red wine. Black Fox’s take on this iconic red boasts flavors of black cherry and currant, with hints of vanilla and violet. Each sip dances on your tongue with vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long. Its full-bodied flavor pairs wonderfully with umami, savory, high-fat foods. In other words, keep Black Fox Cab on hand to class up a cheeseburger or a grilled steak.

Bayshore Vintners Founder's Reserve White Blend
The grapes in 2015 Bayshore Vintners Pinot Grigio have a long history of quality—they were grown on one of California’s first Pinot Grigio vineyards. Pinot Grigio is one of the crispest white wines you can find, and this vintage makes good on its promise to refresh with tasty flavors of tangerine and melon that pair perfectly with a variety of food.
Bayshore Vintners Pinot Grigio
This refreshing Bayshore wine comes from one of the first California vineyards to grow Pinot Grigio. The white grapes were originally used for dessert wines, until an importer recognized their great potential and used them to launch a line of food-friendly table wines. Gorgeous aromas jump out of the glass and delicious flavors of melon, citrus, and tangerine are completed by a crisp thread of acidity.

We’re seriously crushin’ on this classic California Chardonnay. It’s romantically refreshing, with an un-oaked, fruit-forward personality that shares lush flavors of nectarine, ripe melon, and apple. It has a natural crispness that carries the fruit through a clean and dry finish. Our favorite occasion to open this versatile wine is when we’re eating seafood, pasta, or chicken—especially if it has an herbed butter or cream sauce.
It’s time to fall in love with Viognier, the vibrant French white known for its beautifully floral nose. MYTH Viognier is lush with flavors of peaches, apricots, Meyer lemons and hibiscus, paired with a nice minerality. Give it a swirl if you’re looking to branch out from chardonnay.
La Petite Tour Classic White
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
