But our California born and bred fine wines are better than ever and it’s time to stock up before the holidays and before prices go up.
Barterra’s “big three” for the holidays recommendation:
2006 Carneros Blanc de Noir Sparkling Wine. This wine is as fine or finer than your favorite French champagnes and this limited production wine will be going up in price and surely selling out in 2013. Right now you can stock up at $45/bottle, and we’ll extend a special 10% discount for orders of 6 or more, 20% case discount. An elegant sparkler to toast the season — and the perfectly balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes make a wonderful wine to pair alongside grilled shrimp or even white truffle fries!
2006 Russian River Pinot Noir. We love this wine’s versatility — as it will gracefully work for both your seafood and robust winter stews. This wine is full flavored, beautifully colored and well balanced with the character of classic old-world Pinot Noir. The perfect vine ripened clones are from the highly sought after vineyards of Saralee and Genetti. This wine is a fabulous buy at $30/bottle, and we’ll extend the 10% discount for orders of 6 or more, 20% for a case.
2009 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Delmar’s Vineyard). This is an incredible wine — and with premium Cabernet grapes becoming rarer and demand going up, there is no time like the present to invest in this two-time double gold medal winning wine. Only 125 cases were produced and quantities are extremely limited. Over 100 judges from around the world designated this a gold medal winner at the Finger Lakes NY and San Francisco International Wine Competitions. The gorgeous silk screened bottle and the amazing elixir within makes this a fabulous holiday gift — and while the wine is young, its soft tannins make it drinkable for special occasions right now! This wine is a wonderful value at $90/bottle – quantities are limited so no more than 6 bottles per order!
