January’s Wine Sale!

January’s Wine Sale!

January is after dinner and aperitif wine month. Fantastic wines to cozy up by the fire with on sale all month long. Take 10% OFF 1-3 Bottles & 15% OFF 4+ Bottles! Sweet wines often get a bad rap from many so called “wine connoisseurs,” but if you’ve been dismissing a whole class of wines because they contain some residual sugar, then you’re missing out on some of the world’s most complex, profound, sought after, sometimes expensive, and delicious wines. So skip the chocolate cake and finish your meal off with an after dinner wine instead. Just a little of these delicious nectars goes a long way (a 2-3oz pour is typical), and with a 2-3 week shelf life (after opening), it’s easy to finish off a bottle of your favorite before it goes bad. We’ve also included aperitif and digestive wines in with this month’s sale of non-table-style wines, which includes sherries, vermouths and dry ports. The dry, briny minerality of many aperitif wines are perfect for getting the salivary glands primed for a good meal and many believe the botanicals used in digestif wines help aid the digestion process. Ports also suffer somewhat of an image problem as many picture stodgy old guys sitting in their clubs with cigars when they think of port, but Port and Port style fortified wines are great with many cheeses, desserts, mixed to create a Port cocktail, or alone at the end of a meal or evening. Port is also a great base for many fantastic sauces. The Most Common Types of Dessert Wines The folks over at one of our...

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...
