FREE (well, one penny) SHIPPING AT

Cyber Monday Only…That’s today folks!!!

I received a number of happy comments from people who joyfully gobbled up my Thanksgiving wines with their holiday feast. Ba-dum-bump!

If you were one of those who didn’t find what you were looking for at your wine shop, please be aware you can always find my recommendations simply by clicking the “FIND IT HERE” link next to each item. It will take you directly to a great price on the selection where you can have it shipped right to your door (in most states) without any hassle of facing off with “The Wall of Wine” at the local market.

For new online wine purchasers, Cyber Monday (November 30, 2009) is a great time to get started. has chosen to “celebrate” Cyber Monday with what amounts to basically FREE SHIPPING (one penny) on all orders totaling $49 or more. (Use code “CYBERMON” at checkout for the special)

So, with that in mind, and with the gift-giving holidays upon us, I’ve selected some major standouts sure to please anyone who enjoys a little vino. Also, if you liked some of the Thanksgiving wines you may also add them to your basket, as everything at is eligible for the shipping promotion. If you are looking for something in particular, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to help find that special something.

Also, I have a few dates remaining for private wine classes for your office party, wine group, or in-home holiday party this December. Let me know if you’d like to spruce things up with an entertaining and educational visit from Mark the Cork Head! See who else has!

Happy Shipping…I mean Shopping! (and remember to use “CYBERMON” at checkout at

 SilverOakTwomeyGiftSilver Oak Trophy Reds 

Price: $99.99

(save $20.01)


The name Silver Oak is synonymous with ultra-premium wine.  I prefer the Alexander Valley Silver Oak included in this combo to the Napa Valley version.  Quite frankly it just feels better on the palate.  Twomey is also a Silver Oak property producing what just might be year in and year out the best merlot in Napa.  Anyone who receives this duo for the holidays will remember exactly who gave it to them.


 KJGrand Reserve Gift BasketKendall Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay BasketKJ is the king of Chardonnay, and it’s Grand Reserve is a big reason why as oak and butter virtually drip from the glass.  No wonder this wine received 90 points from teh critics!  Basket includes food pairings selected specifically for the wine, including French country olive mix, brie, spicy coctail almonds, and crackers.  Perfect for a classy afternoon with friends.     


Price: $49.99

Price: $70.00

Demi-Sec, a slightly sweet style of Champagne, is at its best when served with something sweet. Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec, marked by fresh peach, nectarine and orange blossom, pairs beautifully with Godiva’s assorted deep dark chocolates, smooth milks, velvety ganaches, classic truffles and pralines. Truly irresistible!  This package comes pre-wrapped and ready to give. 


 RubiconCaskCabernet2005 Rubicon Estate Cask Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: $49.99

(save $25.01)

Rubicon Estate is Francis Ford Coppola’s baby, and he makes sure this is always one of the great wines to come out of the Napa Valley.  I’m shocked to find it at this price, and so to will be anyone who receives this bottle as a gift.  Heck…this is a good enough deal to grab two and enjoy one yourself!
