From two of the oldest vineyards along California's North Coast region where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. The region known for ideal climate promotes slow, even maturing and great flavor development.

An amazingly versatile choice for serving with grilled duck, turkey, chicken, braised lamb, pork or beef – and a nice partner for dishes featuring a rich tomato sauce.
Black Fox Cabernet Sauvigon
Cabernet is the world’s most well-known red wine. There is a very good reason for this as wines of every caliber made with Cabernet produce wines that bring joy to the masses. We always get excited when we find a wine of incredible value that provides the same incredible flavors. Black Fox Cabernet from California is such a wine. With its’ flavors of raspberry, cherry, with hints of cassis, and cedar, Black Fox dances on your tongue with its vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long. New to us, this is sure to be a customer favorite very quickly.
Fair Oaks Zinfandel
A claret style Zinfandel with full, jammy flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry and wild berry flavors with a hint of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity makes a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.
Bayshore Pinot Grigio
This lovely wine from Bayshore is produced from one of the first vineyards in California planted with Pinot Grigio that originally focused on dessert wines. That is until a wine importer, seeing the potential for table wines, used these grapes 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 refreshing thread of crisp acidity.
Hayton Family Chardonnay
This wonderful Chardonnay is a limited production wine created as a tribute to one of California's pioneering vineyard families. It has a refreshing "say no to oak" style – bright and light with citrus, apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. A gentle acidity adds structure while allowing the delicate fruit flavors to shine. Versatile and food-friendly, it makes a good choice with seafood, poultry, or pasta dishes with butter-based sauces.
Pepi Sauvignon Blanc
For a beautiful summer’s day, nothing is more enjoyable when it comes to sipping wine than a glass of refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from California. Our newest find, 2013 Pepi Sauvignon Blanc happens to come from one of our favorite innovative California producers, Pepi, who sources grapes from the cool climate Clarksburg and Lake County growing regions to produce this light and refreshing white wine. This Sauvignon Blanc has notes of vibrant grapefruit and zesty citrus, accompanied by slight green flavors to round it the refreshingly crisp mouthfeel. It compliments a cocktail party or light fare dinner. Pepi has back to back vintages of award winning wines and we are confident that the 2013 will surpass expectations and become a crowd-pleasing favorite white wine.
