2014 Routestock Cellars Chardonnay Rte. 121, Carneros
On Sale $14.99
Apple and fig are layered throughout this elegant, medium-bodied wine that offers the ripeness of a warm vintage without veering into sweetness. The barrel impact is managed well, adding to the impact of honey and dried nuts on the finish.

2015 Routestock Cellars Pinot Noir Rte. 116, Sonoma Coast
On Sale $19.99
Fragrant floral and raspberry flavors are pure and zesty, unencumbered by weighty tannins and ending with a long, seamless, elegant aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 1,623 cases made.

2014 Routestock Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Rte. 29, Napa Valley
On Sale $19.99
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, an inexpensive blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, is soft and juicy, with a deep ruby/plum/purple color, loads of cassis and black cherry fruit, soft tannins, excellent concentration and good purity. This is a sleeper of the vintage and a terrific value from Napa! Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
