Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Karia Chardonnay 2009 Napa Valley Has a 90 Wine Advocate Rating 4.5 stars on wine.com site.  This crisp and fresh Chardonnay opens with aromas of orange blossoms, lemon oil and toasted brioche with sweet cream apple butter.   "Medium" on the richness scale, KARIA charms with its balance of ripe fruit, understated barrel spice, mouth-filling texture and refreshing acidity.   The palate is loaded with flavors of ripe stone fruit and apple blossom that lead to a persistent citrus and spice infused finish.

Lapis Luna Moon Eyes 2007 Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon - Rated 91 and the review from finewinehouse.comThe bouquet has mutltiple layers and evolves with nuances of black cherry, blueberry, violets, charcruterie, black liqourice and dried leafs.  The texture of this Lodi cab exhibits soft dusty style tannins that make it a 10 year plus age-ability wine, medium plus for the body, with flavors of dark chocolate, boysenberry, dill, black pepper and a hint of pipe-tobaco.  Very drinkable!  Will smooth-out by "splash" decanting for 60+ minutes.

Champagne Brut Maison Fondee En 1811 Perrier-Jouet - From klwines.com Perrier-Jouet's Grand Brut is a very pleasant mid-weight Champagne that shows lovely complexity.  Suggestions of smoke, roasted nuts and light honey add character to a generous core of ripe yellow fruit.  The wine offers excellent overall balance and a poised finish.

This is what is making up our basket!!!!  What a bang for the buck 10 tickets for $5!!!  Head on over to the clubhouse.
