Great wine doesn’t have to cost a lot…
Ted Clark, Wine Consultant, Pop’s Wine & Spirits, July, 2017

$39.99-$64.99 Elsewhere. Outstanding 95 Point Charbono at Pop's under $30!!
"Charbono has a long history in California, but only a small amount remains in plantings, and even less is bottled as a stand-alone variety.

Wines like this one may give the remaining growers some relief from the pressure to graft over to more popular varieties.

Deep black fruit and subtle spice aromas and a fleshy palate that delivers the promise of the nose with supple tannins and a rich finish that will appeal to a wide range of red wine fans, and it will pair with a range of meats, from the summer grill to the autumn oven.

Nicely done!

Crispy White Bordeaux made by the same family that owns Lynch Bages!
Half bottles are the perfect Starter wine to a great evening!

"Chateau Villa Bel Air is owned by Jean-Michel Cazes of the famed Chateau Lynch Bages in 1988. Improvements to the Chateau were quickly made once Jean-Michel was in charge and today Chateau Villa Bel Air is one of the best value White Bordeaux you can find.

Well balanced and crisp, this blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon displays citrus, white flowers and lychee aromas enhanced by fine vanilla notes."

92 points, Vinous Media
"(95% tempranillo and 5% graciano): Brilliant ruby. Smoky cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by pipe tobacco, vanilla and cedary oak. Ripe dark fruit flavors show very good focus, with zesty acidity adding lift and spine. Smooth and appealingly sweet on the very long spice- and mineral-tinged finish, which is shaped by fine-grained tannins. (Sep 2014)"

Lastly, a few Rose’s…  Super Muga Rose!
"Muga has long produced one of our BEST selling Rose's... Now they have a new “Premium” Rose called FLOR DE MUGA.

Introducing 2016 Flor De Muga Rose made entirely of Garnacha grapes!

Tasted on my recent trip, the 2016 FLOR DE MUGA is a must-have for Rose lovers!

The complexity of this wine hits you from the first sniff. Elegant, fresh, & very delicate exhuding notes of tart strawberry and peach & a floral aroma of rose blossom which captivates your senses and quickly takes hold after just a few minutes in the glass."

What’s this years HOT-SELLING Rose????
S
ummer Water!!

Summer Water is more than the rosé of the season, it’s a state of mind - every drop full of pink-tinted possibility.

You can taste the raspberry in this one – crisp and slightly more fruity, with a pretty label that makes a statement."
