Raise a glass for Jack's House.

Jack
  • Cheers to the Nicklaus' partnership with the Terlato family to produce a delicious, affordable and philanthropic line of California wines. Jack's House Foundation supports children healthcare and education efforts around the world. With 10% of net sales going to charity, each glass of this Chardonnay and Cabernet consumed is doing good. And these are really good value house wines.

Vineyards and horses.

  • Excelsior Estate is now owned by the fourth and fifth generations of the De Wet family, farming the land of their ancestors in Robertson Valley South Africa, about 100 miles east of Cape Town. In addition to wine growing, Excelsior has a long history of horse breeding which inspired the label theme. Cheers to their ability to deliver such a high quality and distinctive estate Cabernet at this price.

Estate sale.

Estancia Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir 2014 vintage photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Estancia is translated from the Spanish word for “estate”. Estancia, owned by Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ), controls winemaking from experimental vineyard block trials to planting, harvesting, fermenting, and aging the wines. I recently picked these 2014 varietals at Donelson Liquors and was impressed with the current quality for the price. As for Donelson Liquors, their wine selection is fairly limited, but they do offer 10% off wines on Mondays. Cheers!

California Cab in Bourbon barrels.

  • Cheers to this wine breakthrough which is completely American: aging California Cab in used American oak bourbon barrels. The result is awesome for the price. To be a fairly young Cab going into the bottle, the use of bourbon barrels really seasoned the wine generously in a short time.

Steak and a Show.

The Show Mendoza Malbec 2014 and California Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Any of the red grapes of Bordeaux can play the lead in a one-man show depending on where and how they are grown. Here Charles Bieler, Joel Gott and Roger Scommenga (aka the Three Thieves) present two similar and recommended steak wines from the same vintage, different grapes and hemispheres. The labels are a collaboration with Hatch Show Print begun in 2005.
