Cheers is Livin’ the Goode Life This Holiday Season!
When you're living the Goode life, it's about getting together with friends and family for holiday food, fun and a great bottle or two of wine. We've got the fire going in the fireplace, the presents are under the tree, and the holiday music playing in the background.
Did we mention the wine already? 
Goode Friends, Goode Wine and Goode Times. Are you in?
 
 
Murphy Goode 2010 Chardonnay hails from vineyards along the California coast, where cool sea breezes bring out the apple, pear and tropical fruit character of Chardonnay grapes. And just when you think you’re good to go with all these bright fruit flavors, streaks of lemon crème, vanilla and toasty oak show up for added intrigue. Not to mention dimension and balance. This may not be your mother-in-law’s Chardonnay, but we’re betting she’ll like it as much as you do.*regularly $14.99
 
 
 
Cabernet Sauvignon put California vineyards on the map, and Murphy Goode's big, bold version comes from winegrowing regions spread throughout the state. Rock-n-roll is big here too, all part of the laid-back, free-stylin’ culture. That’s not to say things don’t get intense—we’ve got your power ballads, your penetrating lyrics, and your Cab full of hard-hitting blackberry and cherry flavors for real depth you won’t soon forget. Raise a glass, flip the steaks and turn up the volume.*regulary $15.99
 

Join us Thursday December 6th from 4:00-6:00 as we sample our Wine of the Month!

CHEERS WINE OF THE MONTH DECEMBER

Selections from Cline Cellars 

 

Cline's roots run deep
In the latter part of the 1800s, Oakley, Contra Costa County was a booming farming community with thousands of acres of orchards and healthy vineyards. Fred Cline's maternal grandfather, Valeriano Jacuzzi of pump and spa fame, called this place home. On summer visits to his grandparents, Fred learned both the love of agricultural life and the mysteries of vinifying grapes into wine. These lessons led Fred to obtain a degree in Agriculture Management from U.C. Davis. In 1982, with an inheritance from his grandfather, Fred founded Cline Cellars near Oakley, California. Here, he preserved and restored many ancient vine sites to their rightful reign as premier California wine lands.

In 1991, Fred and his wife Nancy relocated the winery from Oakley to the Carneros region of Sonoma County on a historic 350-acre estate with new vineyards and facilities. While much of the cool Carneros region is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot, Fred pioneered the planting of Rhône varietals including Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.

Over the years, Fred’s innovation has consistently resulted in some of northern California’s most distinctive Rhône-style wines and intense, flavorful Zinfandels, many with 90+ point ratings from Wine Spectator. Wine & Spirits called our Ancient Vines Mourvèdre “one of the top 100 values,” and in 2011 Robert Parker Jr. wrote in the Wine Advocate, “this is the finest portfolio of value-priced wines from Cline Cellars that I have tasted to date.”
