We believe that there is a story to be told in every bottle of wine, and within each bottle, lays the path to an incredible journey.

Wine, like music, can be nuanced, beautiful, complex, raucous, or just plain enjoyable. It can bring both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure, but most importantly, wine has the ability to bring people together. Some of our most enriching experiences and warm memories center around family, friends, and a kick-ass bottle (or two, or three) of wine.

We believe that quality rather then quantity matter. That is why we strive to bring you, our new friends and fellow wine lovers, the best there is when it comes to the ever changing world of wine. We gravitate to the little guys, like us, who show great passion for their craft. We believe in relationships. Through our enthusiasm, service, and true desire to know you and your palate, our hope is that Swirl becomes not just a pit stop, but a gathering place sans judgement, for a wine adoring community to explore their senses and create friendships. Never settle for mediocrity. Life is way too short for crap wine. Join the Swirl Rebellion!

Yup, we're drinking. I mean researching! We're always discovering the next new taste that sets our world afire, something that begs to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed. Lip-smacking bad ass wines!


   Bad Ass Wines

DuMol Chardonnay "Chloe" '06 $77.99

These guys are rock stars in the world of wine, and this is one of their superstar, single vineyard Chardonnays out of the Russian River Valley. Robert Parker gives this beauty 92 pts from a winery that is clearly on top of its game and pushing the envelop to develop an amazing sensory experience.


Aubert Chardonnay "Ritchie Vineyard" '07

This is brilliance in a bottle. Purity and elegance that exceeds expectations, it is hard to find a better Chardonnay than those created by Mark Aubert, and this rich, impeccable,full-bodied Chard, out of Sonama, is truly something special. Wine Advocate rating: 97. 

Vall Llach "VL" '04 Priorat red blend $98.99

Old vines naturally produce low yields, and Vall Llach reduces yields even further through careful vineyard management for densely concentrated wines. This is the flagship wine of the estate made with 100 year old vines of Carinena and Garnacha, but blended in with newer plantings of Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah. This is a wine of great purity and presence, with an individual character that's all its own. As it enters the mouth, it has magnificent flavors of concentrated fruit and earth with a tannin structure that is ripe, sweet, yet delicate. The winery claims that this can be aged up to 50 years, but is anyone going to delay gratification to find out?



Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino '05 $83.99

There is something magical about Tuscany, everyone falls in love with it, especially with the wine. Of course, the most famous and passionate wine from Tuscany would undoubtedly be their Brunello, made of 100% of their best Sangiovese from the little hill town of Montalcino. Absolute power and focus are supremely evident in the long, lingering finish that will make you close your eyes and reflect on the beautiful kiss of fruit and flavor, that persists on penetrating your senses long after its swallowed. This '05 is a sleeper vintage, much more open and inviting, without the heavy mark-up in cost as the '04 vintage.

Simply Delicious: Tasting Notes to Indulge in

A Dynamic Archive of Tasting Notes

Marques de Irun, Verdejo '08  $13.99

100% Verdejo, pretty aroma of floral notes, fresh citrus, savory herbs, finishing creamy & vibrant. 

Bourillon, Chenin Blanc '07  $20.99

This dry style Chenin Blanc produced from old vines exhibits the complexity of rich fruit & minerality that we adore about Chenin Blanc.  

Colonia Las Liebres, Bonarda '08  $8.99

Fun & juicy, like that purple drink you enjoyed as a kid! Although originally an Italian grape variety from Piedmont, the Bonarda grape has enjoyed much success in the rich soils & generous climate of Argentina, where it is one of the main grape varieties grown. This value has a rustic charm &  luscious juiciness that is versatile for any meal, be it BBQ, Chinese carryout or pizza! 

Chateau Veredus, Blend '06  $20.99

Awesome-o! Sweet berry aromas exude from the glass, rich ripe fruit with not so subtle nuances of spice & vanilla. An organically produced blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvedre, & Syrah from the South of France that is simply a joy to drink!

Chateau Puy Guilhem, Bordeaux '05  $23.99

What a hidden gem! Composed of mostly Merlot, from the right bank of Bordeaux in the town of Fronsac, comes this exuberant, juicy delight. We love that fact that this small estate doesn't knock you over the head with an outrageous price tag merely because it is Bordeaux. Rich & powerful, yet silky smooth tannin structure lends to a velvety goodness that will not disappoint!
