2013 Canaletto Orvieto Classico, DDOC, Italy

A lovely golden color, offering a fresh, fruity nose. Clean and full of citrusy fruity, with a pleasant nuttiness on the palate and a very crisp finish.

2011 Midnight Cellars Full Moon Red Blend, Paso Robles, California

A blend of zinfandel, Syrah and merlot. This handcrafted wine is consistent year after year in a style that is approachable, fun, and lighter bodied. Full Moon Red continues to have a rounded mouth feel and notes of fresh raspberries and strawberries. Every grape is handpicked and two-table sorted giving this wine the attention it truly deserves. Aged 24 months in oak. Only 1800 cases produced.

2009 Karma Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, California

Deep purple color. Rich cassis jam, cream, and spice aromas with a rich tangy medium-full body and along, fruity finish. Special price for tonight only, if purchased by the case of 12, only $132 a case.

2011 Resolution Cabernet Sauvignon, NAPA Valley, California

Only three hundred cases of this velvety smooth, currant-laced Cabernet Sauvignon were produced in 2011.  Supple tannins frame the gorgeous mid-palate flavors of cherry, milk chocolate, gun smoke, and cedar.  The estate owned Cabernet vines are planted in pristine vineyards just off of the Silverado Trail, in the heart of Napa Valley. ~wine makers notes.

2008 Midnight Cellars Eclipse Petite Sirah, Paso Robles, California

This Petite Sirah is not for the timid! By definition of huge, it is impossibly dark, the nose is full with black fruit, earth and pepper, and the body is fully extracted and will stain your teeth as you chew it. Find rich, concentrated flavors of ripe plum, cocoa, leather and minerality. “100% Petite Sirah. Aged 50 months in French oak. Only 150 cases produced.
