JAMES BARLOW’S ‘STEALS OF THE MONTH’ FOR JANUARY 2017

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Happy New Year!  It seemed like 2016 blew right by!  I hope everyone has a blessed and prosperous 2017.  I will not post a ‘Thirteen’ picks this month, as I have been booked solid for the month with little time to spare.  I WILL post a February ‘Thirteen’ picks.  Enjoy!

Francois Labet Gamay 2014

Beaujolais, France

Cash Price $9.99

Gamay is making a comeback!  Light and refined, flavors of bright cherry and cranberry leap into medium acids.  Touches of fleshy raspberry and tinges of white pepper.  Fun!

Playtime ‘Blonde’ Chardonnay 2014

Lake County, California

Cash Price $9.99

More and more spectacularly priced, quality wines are showing up from this region.  Shannon Ridge is a leader.  Silky tropical fruits flow into kisses of oak and sweet vanilla. Creamy and approachable.

Astrid Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

California

Cash Price $8.99

This is a Yummy Cabernet at a crazy low price!  Soft, supple with red fruits and plush tannins.  Round, smooth finish with hints of cedar and vanilla.  Must Try!

Thank You,

James C. Barlow
