"The Sheriff of Buena Vista is deserving of its name. This bold 2012 Sonoma
Count Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Petit
Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. This was a stand out and a staff
favorite at our latest wine dinner. This is a lovely, complex, seriously
endowed red. It’s richly textured and elegant, but with a seriousness. This
is outstanding wine, it's big, smooth and juicy, with supple tannins. This is
an impressively well-made wine at a realistic price point that delivers lots
of great joy and satisfaction."

“A beautifully balanced Chardonnay.....
..... that hits my - all together now - crisp
and creamy markers, with lemon, apple, peach, toffee and sweet oak aromas
and flavors are well integrated from start to finish, and linger long on the
palate. A perfect cocktail white from winemaker Mark Williams.”

“Michael David Winery also scores impressively with their moderately priced
Zinfandels. The 2013 Zinfandel Earthquake is 100% Zinfandel, a 30,000-case
cuvée aged in American oak. It is no wimpy Zinfandel at 15.5% alcohol, but
is full-bodied, offering briary, peppery, meaty and herbal black fruits and
some red fruits. The wine is pure, deep, fleshy, and ideal for drinking over
the next 3-4 years. Year in year out, this is one of the best value wineries
in the entire world.”

“Take some time and unwind. No, not you -- this wine. You'll definitely want
to tuck this one away in the deep recesses of your cellar. It's just
beginning to show itself from under its massive structure. High toned cherry
fruit, underbrush and brown spice will gain significant elegance with time.
If you must go early with this, decant it overnight. A Platinum Award winner
at the 2016 Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition.”

delivers flavor and complexity without attitude....."
"Ca’ Momi is built on Napa Valley soil, but we’re rooted in soulful Italian
tradition. They brought this tradition to Napa Valley with all the fiery
passion you’d expect from three Italians. The 2014 from Ca' Momi is a spicy
blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah. Dusty
tannins make for a soft texture in this wine. It delivers flavor and
complexity without attitude and a savory expression of the grapes. Its
low-acid, fruit-forward character makes it quite tasty. This freestyle red
blend rocks its own style without pretension or snobbishness. Drink it up!"

“Showing incredible depth for such an affordable wine.....
.....Andrew Murray does it
again with this widely available bottling. The gamy nose shows lamb,
rosemary, uncracked peppercorns, light tobacco leaf, soy sauce and a touch
of tar. Purple flowers rule the palate, with lavender, violet and blossoming
rosemary notes, with thyme and white pepper spicing up boysenberry fruit.”
