Last call on 2014 Red Bordeaux
"One of the best value driven vintages in a long time... We are clearing the shelves of these gems and making space for the 2015's which arrive over the next 12 months.

Last chance to mix a few cases of these gems that are starting to drink now but the best will last 20-25 years.

Let's mix some cases!!!!

Quantities are bottles to a few cases left of all of these."

White Bordeaux
"Amazing values across several price-points!

On my trips each year, the Bordalais have been very proud of their emerging white wines. There are some amazing crisp and refreshing whites under $10, and several more serious selections that won't break the bank.

A lot of growth in this category over the past few years. Also, a lot of weird labeling issues... like Lynch Bages in Pauillac not being able to put "Pauillac" on their labels because antiquated French laws don't allow wineries in Pauillac to sell White wines??? Whatever... at least we can sell them and educate you that Blanc de Lynch Bages is really grown in Pauillac and is fantastic wine!

Italy Vacation
6 different Cities Visited / 6 wines you can't live without!
"Early May had me going to Italy for vacation and what's not to like. House wine is really great. The food is amazing and ultra fresh.
