2015 Smith Story Cabernet Franc
Sonoma Valley, California
“The 2015 Cabernet Franc is done in a fresh, Loire-inspired style that captures notable fruit intensity, but manages to avoid excessive vegetal or green notes. The red-toned berry fruit and lifted, floral notes pulse with energy. There is so much to like here.” 90 Points, Vinous
Regular Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case
Sale Price $49.99 per bottle, $599.88 per case

2015 Smith Story “Pickberry Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma Mountain, California
“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pickberry Vineyard is a total knock-out. Gracious and light on its feet, with tremendous character, the Pickberry will thrill readers who enjoy old-school California Cabernets. Bright acids and mountain structure from this hillside site on Sonoma Mountain give the wine a palpable sense of energy and savoriness to play off the dark-toned fruit. Scents of lavender, sage, tobacco and menthol linger on the super-expressive finish. What a marvelous wine this is.” 95 points, Vinous
Regular Price $89.99 per bottle, $899.88 per case
Sale Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case

2016 Château Lauduc 
Bordeaux, France
Round and supple, with incredible aromatics of ripe red and dark fruits with hints of toasted spices and cocoa.  It boasts a beautiful dark color, an alluring bouquet of soft fruit aromas and equally pleasant palate with a subtle rich structure throughout the finish. This easy drinking, classic Bordeaux is a perfect companion for a Friday evening informal meal with friends or a good burger!

2016 Château Des Joualles 
Bordeaux, France
This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is deep ruby-purple in color opening with aromas of cedar spice, plum and toasty notes. The palate is classic Bordeaux with a lush opulence that is the hallmark of the vintage. Cassis, black cherry, currant and baking spice carry the palate with undertones of tobacco and earth adding complexity and length. The tannins are already fine-grained and well-integrated, but show the grip to evolve with further time in the cellar.
