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...
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...
