#1-Delicious Chardonnay Package: Three of California's Best!
Yes, you can buy Chardonnay for a few dollars a bottle, often with some cute Australian critter on the label. But if you enjoy fine wine, the difference between drinkable and outstanding Chardonnay is stunning. We have selected the following high-scoring wines and offer them to you at a solid 40% discount. So, for just a few dollars more, you can savor the really good stuff.
Sequoia Grove 2010 Carneros Chardonnay ($28 retail): beautiful balance, starting out delicate and leading into a richer note of custard, then finishing delicately again, with a hint of red apple flavor.
Russian Hill 2008 Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($32 retail): the best of two worlds - rich tropical fruit flavors due to a warmer than usual year nicely offset by a bright, racy freshness that is classic Russian River Valley.
Havens Winery 2009 Oakville, Napa Valley Chardonnay ($45 retail): rich, floral fruit is balanced by bright acidity with a touch of vanilla and a mile-long finish. Much complexity here to be admired and savored.
Try one bottle of each, three total, and save 40% off retail: just $63
Try two bottles of each, six total, and save 50% off retail: just $105 - $17.50/btl
#2-Mystery Wine: Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir for Pennies!
Here's a truly delightful wine, normally priced at a very reasonable $28 on the winery website. It has plenty of silky elegance you expect in a well made Pinot but also has some of the cool weather "backbone" (acidity) that makes Santa Barbara such a reliable place for this most finicky of grapes. We have a few extra cases of this and think YOU should TOO! So we are pricing it so you can pick up a summer's worth of sipping for pennies. Don't delay!
Three bottles of Santa Barbara Pinot ($84 retail) for just $54! Over 35% off!
Six bottles, just $99, over 40% off!

#3A Start your own vertical!
2009 Sea Smoke Southing Pinot Noir:
The seductive nose of the 2009 Southing exhibits fresh leather, rose water, black cherry, violets and hint of macerated cherry. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced by the estate vineyard's characteristic cool climate acidity.
Your price: One bottle of the 2009 vintage: just $69 (average price online is over $85!) Only 6 bottles available!
#4. 1995 Chateau Latour 'Les Forts de Latour', Pauillac, France:
This is your chance to try a Grand Cru French Bordeaux! Like all 1st growth houses in Bordeaux, Latour has a second label; this one received 91 points from Wine Spectator! Robert Parker, Jr says: "Latour's second wine contains more Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) than the grand vin. The deep purple-colored 1995 looks to be the finest "second" wine since the superb 1982. Very rich blackcurrant and wet stone scents dominate the aromatics. Rich, sweet, dense, full, and tannic, the high quality of this wine provides a glimpse of what the "grand cru" Latour achieved in 1995...a stellar year in Bordeaux. It should mature well for 15-20+ years." Meaning it is in its prime right now and will age nicely for several more years!
Here's the best part: the AVERAGE price of this wine online is $349 per bottle. Your price: $199/bottle or three bottles for just $525! As an investment or just pure pleasure, this deal is hard to beat for the real wine lover! First come, first served.
#5. JUSTIN ISOSCELES Vertical: 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005
From a private collector: This classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec is beautifully integrated with an extraordinary definition of fruit and awe inspiring finish. If you aren't familiar with their wines, consider this:
JUSTIN ISOSCELES is one of America's most sought after Bordeaux blends. Past vintages have enjoyed honors such as Wine Spectator's "Top 10 Wines of the Year", London International Wine Competition "Best Blended Red Wine in the World", Robert M. Parker Jr. 95+ points! etc. It has been served at state dinners in the White House but has been strictly allocated forever, it seems!
These wines, especially the older vintages, often sell for over $100 per bottle to collectors...when you can find them!
Your price: four bottles, one each of the above years: just $249! A savings of over 30% off best available price.
#6 Blockbuster Italian Sangiovese:
2006 Felsina Berardenga Fontallooro Toscanna (Italy)
95 Points, Wine Spectator and #13 "Top 100 Wines" for 2009
. W.S. review: "Chocolate, blackberry and black cherry aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a deep concentration of fruit. Powerfully rich and polished. Big and structured. A blockbuster Sangiovese. Best after 2012."
Your price: $45 per bottle, 3 bottles for $120. (Average price: $56)
