Top 10 List

Top Ten New Arrivals for October!

J L Chave Mon Coeur Cotes du Rhone 2011

This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from purchased fruit that has wonderful texture, layers of fruit, and character. While it has plenty of weight, the true success of this wine is all the flavor that bubbles just under the surface.  

Domaine Le Fay d’Homme Muscadet 2011

The Fay d'Homme is a pure expression of the Gneiss soil. The acidity is present but not aggressive, with expression of white fruits, citrus and blossoms. The wine is immediately very well balanced and enjoyable right after bottling.

Aquitania Cabernet 2011

This delicious Cabernet has some SERIOUS firepower behind it. It has an elegant Macul nose that combines fresh red fruit, cassis, dried herbs, and red pepper. The palate is complete with smooth tannins and loads of red fruit.

Hecht & Bannier Languedoc Blanc 2012

A blend of Piquepoul and Roussanne, the 2012 Languedoc Blanc is a fresh, vibrant white. The Piquepoul Blanc brings this crunchy and vivid character and the Roussanne's citrus fruits and white flowers produce this striking wine with lovely aromatics and a full silky mouth-feel.

Billard Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2012

The 2012 is a layered with fresh cherries and red berries with touches of dried herbs and spice. The weight sits nicely on the palate and finishes with a nice wave of acidity. Bravo Billard. Bravo...

La Liquiere Faugeres Les Amandiers 2012

Les Amandiers is made from young vines resulting in fresh berry aromas : red currant, strawberry, black currant. A pleasant and tender wine, offering great aromatic freshness.

Banshee Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012

Charming aromatically, this Chardonnay immediately hints toward Asian pear and apple flavors with an underlying cut of lemon framed by hints of Tahitian vanilla from fine grained French oak. It offers hints of more tropical flavors without ever fully realizing them and finishes with ample verve.

Barco de Piedra 2011

"It exhibits notes of flowers, licorice, new saddle leather, black currants and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, complex and on a fast maturity curve, it should be consumed over the next 2-3 years." 91 Points, the Wine Advocate, #202 Aug 2012

Ludovicus 2011

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, plus a suggestion of dried rose. Silky on entry, then firmer in the middle, with flavors of red and black fruits and floral pastille. The floral quality repeats on the lively, subtly powerful finish.

Rickshaw Cabernet 2011

Dark plum, coffee grounds, and cassis. This base is buttressed by a few mountain sources that provide a streak of red fruit, verve, and structure.

winery's notes: 70% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache

Avenger is the red blend that launched Villa Creek Cellars in 2001. Syrah from G2 Vineyard is the backbone of this wine. G2 is a stone's throw from James Berry Vineyard in the Willow Creek district of the west hills of Paso Robles. The vines are deeply rooted in lime stone which give richness and complexity without being over the top. Our block at G2 sits on a steep windswept west facing slope that benefits from ocean fog and cooler day time temperatures. These conditions lend breadth on the palate and layers of flavor to the wines. Denner and Luna Matta Mourvèdre add a bass note of dark fruit. A touch of Rolph dry farmed Petite Syrah adds volume. This wine is all about hedonistic pleasure! Drink 2017-2027.

"(40% whole clusters and 40% new French and Hungarian oak) Opaque ruby. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, incense, potpourri and vanilla, and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine stretches out. Juicy, seamless and fleshy in texture, offering deeply concentrated blueberry, cherry cola, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and salty olive and mineral qualities. Distinctly rich but surprisingly vibrant, even graceful, with silky tannins adding shape and grip to the extremely long finish."
