Here are the new items we have recently listed in stock. We hope you enjoy them.

2008 Georges Deuboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau - The first release of the season from France, this wine is tender, fruity, harmonious, elegant, fresh, and delicious. Serve slightly chilled. Goes great with turkey!

2005 Chateau Olce Bordeaux -Certainly a wine for Bordeaux drinkers rather than Cali wine regulars, this medium bodied effort is understated and elegant. Nice Merlot-oriented notes of plum throughout, with hints of iron and graphite on the nose. You can probably drink this one over the next 5 years.

2007 Tait Barossa Valley - (Shiraz 71%, Cabernet Sauvignon 19%,Merlot 10%). "I don't know what aromas and flavors you'll find when you try this wine - wine appreciation is so subjective and often too pretentious for my liking. I make my wines the way I like them - big, thick, juicy and deep in color. I wanted to name this wine "Michelle's Block" - after my wife. But that conjures up visions of a soft and elegant sort of wine - and trust me, this little beauty is nothing like that. She's broad shouldered, built like a stallion and packs an intensity of flavor - like only the Barossa can deliver. She's what I call "The Ball Buster"....and so is this wine! Enjoy it - Cheers! signed Bruno Tait - winemaker

2007 Bitch South Australia Grenache - Bitch, a provocatively named 100% Grenache from R Wines, achieves the potential of this difficult-to-grow grape. Winemakers Chris Ringland and Lisa Wetherell use fruit from the Barossa Valley in South Australia. Yields from the 25-year-old vines grown in sand over clay are modest, 3 to 5 tons an acre. Ripe quince and lifted spice with a rich juicy concentration, along with intensely perfumed characters come from the sandy loam soil, and dark berry characters from the heavier red-brown soils. Life may be a bitch, but this wine will keep the complaints away, at least while you're drinking it!

Kahlua French Vanilla - Enjoy the unique taste of Kahlua enhanced with the distinctive character of French Vanilla. Try a Kahlua French Vanilla White Russian or for an exotic twist try: 3 parts Kahlua French Vanilla, 1 part Vodka, 1 part milk or cream, 2 parts chilled coffee. Pour over ice, garnish with a mint leaf.

Kahlua Hazelnut - Enjoy the unique experience of Kahlua enhanced with the bold and smooth taste of roasted hazelnut. Try a Kahlua Hazelnut White Russian or for a twist try: 1 part Kahlua hazelnut, 2 parts coffee, garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Lunazul Reposado Tequila - 100% Agave. At only $23.99 for a 750ml size bottle this is an exceptional buy for a 100% agave tequila! Plus right now through January 6,2009, there is also a $10 mail in rebate! A great tequila at an even greater price!
