As another year came to a close, we asked our staff what their favorite bottles were in 2015. Just like our little group here, the answers were varied, educated and well, can we say…Awesome!
So here you go. Some great pics from some great people.

This small production, craft distilled anejo is spicy and very smooth with a hint of smoke. The vanilla of its fabulous little brother, Fortaleza Blanco, is present on the fore palate and adds to the wonderful harmony of this delicious Anejo.Fortaleza Anejo Tequila
This beautiful Cab from a great vintage will put Clos du Val back on the radar. A stunningly good value, it should only get better with age.Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet-2013

This crisp, refreshing and fruity German riesling is just the right balance of sweet and dry. It is also a great option for those on a budget, and pairs well with spicy dishes. While I enjoy many rieslings, this one has become one a new favorites.2008 Dr. L. Loosen Riesling

Slightly funky from it’s exposure to wild yeast, this California blend is a great example of sustainably made wine. Plenty of fruit throughout, but a dry, almost herbaceous finish keeps you on your toes.Jambalaia Rouge, La Clarine Farms
From Amanda Rock
Petite Petit is an awesome blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot by Michael David Winery. It has a big, bold, mouth-filling, rich berry taste and a slightly spicy finish – perfect for chilly nights!Petite Petit
