    Chateau Thebot Red Bordeaux 2010

    A.O.C. Bordeaux ($15.99)

    70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc,
    10% Cabernet Sauvignon

    "If you are looking for a great every day wine, look no further. This Chateau Thebot shows just how special the 2010 vintage for Red Bordeaux is. Fuller bodied with plenty black fruits that have wonderful length and richness. The acidity is well balanced with just a bit of drying tannin on the finish. A classic example of a great bargain Bordeaux." (750ML)

    Saintsbury Chardonnay 2011

    Carneros, California ($22.99)

    Chardonnay

    “This wine comes from the Carneros area of California which is famous for producing high quality Chardonnay. More of a medium bodied style with citrus and peach white flower notes. An incredible bouquet of lightly buttered popcorn rises up from the glass. If you want an oaked and buttery chardonnay that is not heavy handed, then this is a homerun.” (750ML)

    Dominus Napanook 2010

    Napa Valley, California ($49.99)

    98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

    “This is a wine to drink now and to put away for up to a decade. California fruit but molded in a Bordeaux style. Notes of ripe currants and fresh black cherries all finished up with some dusty earthiness. One to two hours of breathe time in a decanter is recommended. If you are looking for something that is more than just one dimensional this is your wine.” (750ML)
