Crosby Cabernet Sauvignon 2015The wines of Crosby are often crafted from declassified grapes that otherwise would have created a wine that cost considerably more money. Crosby wines are all about great quality at a value price.

Our sources for grapes and winemakers remain anonymous for Crosby, but our standards stay at the highest level to bring the best value into the market from California.
Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2017Strawberries and blackberries aromas slowly rise out of the glass. Overtime, more of the anise and clove will mix with these other aromas. Currently, the wine is young with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Complexity will increase as the wine ages, but this wine should stay "fresh" for 6 or 7 years. Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years, as the flavors coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta. We have enjoyed this wine with many food choices from spicy Indian dishes to all-American sandwiches, and the wine worked well with most anything. The possible food pairings are almost endless.

Domaine Besson Givry Les Grands Prétans 2017Wine Information: • Fermentation is all done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration • Aging 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques – 50% new Winery Information: Xavier Besson holds 7 hectares of vines in the appellation of Givry, having inherited the estate in 1989 from his parents. Most of the vines are in the immediate area around the domaine (or chateau, really) with ‘Les Grands Prétans’ vineyard basically their backyard. The domaine is still quite small at 7 hectares and all the work is done by hand always with an aim for low yields and big, ripe fruit. The vineyards are grown in clay soil, with a deep bedrock of limestone from vines that are 30 years old (average). The fermentation is all done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration. Aging takes place for 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques – 50% new. The combination of old vines, conscientious vineyard work, and reasonable yields, all contribute to the crowd pleasing, balanced wines that Besson produces. Farming from superb vineyards like ‘Les Grands Prétans,’ Besson always provides superb Burgundy VALUE: concentrated and densely expressive with brilliant perfume, heady fruit, and a velvety mouthfeel.
