1¢Tasting: Surprise Tasting on Jan 2 & 3 2015!!
from 4:00 to 8:00pm.


Dear Customers and Friends,

A year passed…it went like a shooting star! We got a year older in the space of a second and during that time, we opened a new business located in Westlake, we opened a wine bar, we extended our opening hours, we launched our new Best Price Guaranteed program, we launched a professional new website, we became certified by Louis XIII, we tasted many wines, and we drunk many with you as well!!!! and soon to come in 2015, a light restaurant, gourmet food, cigars, and more!

You are key to our business and I would like to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support, your loyalty, your friendship, your advices and recommendations, your understanding during challenging times, your patience, and your numerous referrals. It is an honor to cater to your needs all year long.

2014 saw the high ratings of many 2012 California wines and some said it was one of the best wine vintages in California…until 2013 ratings showed up and stole the crown jewel as it has been announced to be a one in a lifetime vintage for California wineries. No worries, we should have plenty of both vintages when they are released. We are anxious to discover what 2014 and 2015 vintages will bring!

I would like to wish you and your family good health, peace of mind, happiness, and prosperity in the coming New Year. We are grateful for loyal customers and friends like you, who make our work satisfying and enjoyable. 2015 will be a year of change for our business and we are excited to continue our quest of finding great wines for your refined pleasure.

Warmest Personal Regards,

Xavier Roy

The store will close at 5pm on Wednesday Dec 31st.

2013 Belle Glos Los Alturas Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

The shining star of the four Belle Glos wines…delivers!

Our Impressions:
This Pinot is not for the faint of palate; however unlike expressive Pinots it still retains it varietal integrity. Upon pouring it into our glasses we loved the dark purple crimson hue and it surprised us with tons of aromatics, filling the air. Fragrances of blackberry, cherry, cranberry, along with Satsuma plum, had us eager to taste it.

On the palate all those flavors exploded and became intermixed with semi-sweet chocolate, cola, and Aussie black licorice on the mid-palate, resulting in a juicy, long, and persistent finish. The integration, of the fruit, the fine grained tannins, and acidity makes this wine a stunner and you deserve to try it!

Wine Spectator, James Laube, 93Pts, Dec. 2014:
"pares no expense, with lavish smoke and black licorice scented oak framing a rich core of dark berry, anise, boysenberry and savory herb notes. Full-blown and expressive through a persistent, mouth coating finish. Drink now through 2024."

Winery Notes:
"Located in one of the highest-plantable sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, this pristine bench offers the Las Alturas Vineyard cool, coastal days with consistent sunshine and a foundation of Gloria sandy loam soil. When planting this 15-acre vineyard, we matched various Pinot Noir clones to individual slopes and soil attributes of the land. Our yields are deliberately kept low in order to preserve the fruit intensity these clonal choices have given us. 2013 Vintage Tasting Notes Intense ruby red in color, it is an intriguing aromatic mix of sunbaked blackberry, bright cranberry, ripe plum, black licorice and hints of candy apple. Complex red and black fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries, raspberries and warm cherry pie filling, with a wonderful dark chocolate characteristic. Cedary oak and soft vanilla undertones on the mid-palate further enhance the wine. The overall impression is rich and silky with a firm acidity, refined tannins and explosive layers of ripe fruit."
