New Chateauneuf du Pape and New Zinfandel

Hello fellow wine enthusiasts! We have another really exciting wine to introduce to all of you! We have just received a limited amount of Paul Autard 2007 Chateauneuf de Pape. This wine is absolutely stunning. It’s classic Chateauneuf du Pape with lush, bold flavors. Wine Spectator and Robert Parker both gave this wine stellar ratings, here what they both have to say:

“This delivers a very large core of crushed currant, plum and blackberry fruit, all held in check by hints of maduro tobacco, bittersweet ganache, black tea and graphite. The long finish has ample grip, lending further length and definition to the impressive range of fruit. Best from 2010 through 2025”. – 93 points Wine Spectator

Robert Parker gave this wine between 90-93 points over the course of the wine’s life; he thinks this wine “offers up beautiful, sweet black raspberry and kirsch fruit, tremendous opulence, and a sexy, gamy character”.

As you can probably tell, we are really pumped about this wine! So, we’re going to pop this open TODAY at the tasting bar from 3-6pm!! This is a must try wine, and not to mention, the price is pretty great for this caliber Chateauneuf.

We’re going to be retailing this wine at $39.99, BUT for today and tomorrow ONLY we’re going to have it on sale for $34.99!!!


We have also received a HOT new Zinfandel for all of you lovers of this grape. Outpost Zinfandel Howell Mountain 2007; Outpost is a super cult producer from Howell Mountain MADE by the infamous Thomas Brown (Schrader, etc...) Thomas makes Cab, Grenache, and Petite Sirah for Outpost as well, but we think the Zin is probably the most pure wine being made there. Elegance defines it... this is not bomber Zin, it has structure and acid and balance. Finally!


(92-94) Tanzer, "Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose offers red and darker berries lifted by ginger, flowers and pepper. Juicy and intense; a real essence of zinfandel fruit, with superb clarity and spicy lift to the crushed berry flavors. This really coats the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. The very long, juicy, bright finish features a fine dusting of tannins and resounding fruit. Aged entirely in Burgundy barrels, 25% new. This sample was enough to restore my faith in zinfandel."

This wine is definitely big and lush but refined, like Turley and Carlisle

Only 1 case available!!! $48.99/bottle
