This year I drank some of the best red wines that I have ever tasted. The fn'st two wines are sadly no longer available in the store. First, a Spanish wine made by Barahonda called Bellum (2003) from 100% old vine Mourvedre. If you like big, bold, velvety and luscious reds, then seek this wine out in your travels. Besides being one of the best wines that I have ever tasted, it was only $16! Wines From South Africa South African Viney,ards Special Wines Sauvignon Blanc Chateau Turcaud Taste a beautiful white Bordeaux. Aromatic and crisp. $16 Proecco Bele Casel This 2000 year old grape is made into a perfect M6thode champenoise extra dry sparkler. $15 Chenin Blanc Francois Chidaine The best winemaker in the Loire Valley producing sophisticated wines. $23 Featured South African Wines i ...... . The Fairvalley Workers Association, ffounded in 1997, was set up by the employees of Fairview Wine and Ch.ese Estate in order to develop and manage their own property. Initial fumding, which went to purchase a 38 acre farm adjacent to Fairview, was lrovided equally by Charles Back, owner of Fairview, and the South . African government. Subsequent funding for the development of homtes and eventual conslruction of a wine cellar is being arranged through commereial activities. Fairvalley Chenin Blanc - $10 An unoaked wine offering charming tropical fruit nottes with a hint of pear flavor. Pleasingly rounded with pineapple/melon hints on th,e finish makes this a cheerful easy drinking, dry quaffer! Pinot Noir Paul Cluver Cluver is making great wines.

Made in a bright, modern style. The 2002 Quilceda Creek Cabernet from Washington is an amazing wine. The perfect balance and extremely long fmish made me want to drink a second bottle.

We taste hundreds of wines every month. Our primary focus is to find exceptional wines that are great values and then we help find the one that is fight for you. The name "Teller" comes from telling people about wine. We have taught thousands the basics of nStmg. ,gan. top'oy un trx um stores for a i}ee tasting every Friday and Saturday year round. At one of Teller Wines' classes this year we opened a bottle of 2002 Harlan Estate Cabernet. This is one of Napa's fmest wines (another 100 pointer from the Wine Advocate). This is an amazingly rich wine with incredible complexity. I would drink this wine every day if my last name was Gates or Walton. Teller Wines has both theHarlan and Harlan's Bond in stock.
