What We're Drinking

2000 Labégorce, Margaux $39.99

A great value in Bordeaux! This bottle is mature enough to drink now, but has time in hand if you want to keep it in the cellar for the future. We love it for its laid back elegance and classic balance. A must try for your next nice steak dinner.

Something Special, Domestically Speaking

Wow, November already. Time sure flies when you’re selling wine. I thought about writing on holiday wines. No, it’s been done. So, here are a new wines that I thought were worth a look. 2001 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($54.99) Cathy has created a gem this vintage. Her wines are always balanced and perfect for drinking or aging. Red fruit and chocolate with hints of mineral and spice make this one of my favorite wines of 2001. A popular wine with the Francophiles who work in San Francisco. I just had the 1996 in London, and it was almost perfect. 2001 Corison “Corazon” Anderson Valley Gewürztraminer ($19.99) Produced since 1999, this is rarely seen in stores. Alsatian in style, this wine shows touches of pear and grapefruit and a little smokiness. Fermented to complete dryness. It doesn’t get any better than this. 2001 Paradise Ridge “Elevation” Cabernet Sauvignon ($21.99) A fantastic price on this Rockpile Vineyard Cabernet. 89% cabernet with a little merlot and petit verdot, this wine jumps right out at you with dark fruit and oak. A bright finish with long, lush tannins. 2003 Cristom “Mt. Jefferson Cuvee” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir ($25.99) Always a great drinking pinot, the 2003 definitely has a little more forward fruit. The wine shows hints of licorice, tea and earth with light tannin and acidity. Perfect for the holidays. See you in the City… —Mike Jordan
