New Wines!!

Check out some of the NEW ARRIVALS this Fall at Taylor’s Wine Shop! ELEVEN ELEVEN WINES 2012 ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON – $99.99 LAKI’S VINEYARD, OAK KNOLL, NAPA VALLEY – 90 Points – Wine Enthusiast,2/1/2016 BUY NOW “While soft and approachable, this wine also offers a density of black currant and cherry that gives significant power and juicy exuberance. Sizable tannins risk overtaking the fruit, but never do, with the oak imparting a jolt of smokiness on the finish.” – Virginie Boone Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting Notes: This Library Vintage of our Cabernet begins with a beautiful and wildly dark purple rim. Full force aromatics of camphor, crushed herbs, black cherry, rose, violet and cured game exude from the glass, building in volume to reveal nuances of olive, French oak and vanilla. The first sip is striking as you swirl the wine over your tongue. An exciting arrangement of flavors emerge including blueberry, chocolate, espresso and red hard candy. The tannins and acidity are perfectly balanced, and the complexity of the palate will only build over time. Enjoy now through 2029 and beyond. PRODUCTION: 856 CASES Eleven Eleven 2013 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) – $44.99 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast: Lemon meringue and custard provide decadence to this vineyard-designated wine, the site planted to decades-old vines. It becomes sublime as it opens, spicy and soft in quince and Asian pear. The finish returns to the opening theme, delivering a punch of caramel. Renteria Family Wines 2014 Los Carneros Chardonnay – Taylor’s Bottle Price $44.99 Blended from two fantastic vineyards, the Brown Ranch which the Renteria’s purchased a few...

Italian Wine Sale

August is all about Italian wines at Taylor’s.  Italy is the largest wine producer on the planet (or tied with France, or 2nd behind France, depending on who’s counting and the vintage) and is certainly one of our favorite “go to” wine regions for food friendly vino and all month long every Italian wine is on sale. Italian Wine Sale  10% off single bottles, 1-5   15% off when you buy 6 or more  Click below to shop our Italian Wine Sale online and enter promo code ITALY10 at checkout to save 10%! A Few Featured Wines from Italy: Bidoli 2015 Pinot Grigio $10.99 A staple since The Haw River Wine Man, JIm Stock first found this little, family owned winery on a trip to Italy and began importing their wines directly to North Carolina 20 years ago. Since then it has remained one of the best Pinot Grigio values around. It always amazes us when people come in and say they don’t like Pinot Grigio because it’s too sweet because they’ve only tried mass produced versions from grocery stores and pizza joints. Good Pinot Grigio is crisp and refreshing with lime citrus, tart apple and refreshing acidity, which is exactly what Bidoli delivers. Casa Contini 2013 Brindisi Riserva – Taylor’s: $14.99 Brindisi is one of the small DOCs located within Puglia, the heel of Italy’s boot. The brutish, dark skinned Negromaro grape makes this region’s best wines and that is true here with Casa Contini’s Riserva bottling. The Botter family tames the Negroamaro beast with small amounts of Malvasia Nera and Sangiovese along with liberal amounts of lavish...
Taylor’s Private Label

Taylor’s Private Label

TAYLOR’S WINE SHOP PROUDLY PRESENTS… OUR VERY OWN, PRIVATE LABEL WINE! Taylor’s 2013 Porch Pounder Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands $34.99 BUY NOW Once upon a time, Taylor and a few of his wine drinking pals were in California hanging out with the Garys (Pisoni of Pisoni Winery and Franscioni of Roar) and Roar’s winemaker, Ed Kurtzman, and they came up with the idea doing a Taylor’s private label. Ed said that he had a stray barrel or two of fantastic Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir that he thought would be perfect for us and a taste or two later, Taylor’s Porch Pounder Pinot was born. Now that all the hurdles of of label design, ABC approval, transportation… have been cleared, our first private label wine is here! Ed Kurtzman is one of California’s top Pinot Noir specialists, having made incredible wines over the years for well known Pinot houses such as Roar, Calera, Testarossa and Fort Ross. Ed has delivered another stunner here, and at a great price compared to what many of his wines go for at the “big name” producers. A sensuous dark reddish purple in color, this silky Pinot is highly aromatic, featuring scents of crushed purple grapes, dark berries, spring flowers and black tea. A voluptuous wine with sustained mid palate flavors of sweet boysenberry, blackberry, plum along with notes of cola, smoke and...
