Check out these two beauties that are a part of our Warehouse Spelunking Sale.

Clos Mimi Petite Rousse 2005 Paso Robles, CA originally $25.99 now $12.99: Clos Mimi is more well know for the small amounts of single vineyard syrahs it produces. However, this entry level 100% syrah is also a beautiful version of the grape. Its done in a more Northern Rhone style with bright acidity & red fruit notes with hints of earth & mushroom. The palate is firm but fresh with clean textures that don't weigh down the palate.

Weinhaus Kaisergarten Seewinkler Ausbruch 1999 Neusiedlersee Austria $12.99. What exactly does all that gibberish mean? Yummy, sweet & tasty. This Austrian dessert wine is rich, viscous & lush with light acidity that is just enough to cut through the sweetness. It has rich honeyed, nutty notes with floral hints & a luscious palate. Pair this with foie gras, funky stinky blue cheese & toasted walnuts.
