Villa Jolanda Prosecco 187ml Individual Bottle Product #23927 (In Stock)
Villa Jolanda Prosecco 187ml Individual Bottle Villa Jolanda Prosecco 187ml Individual Bottle

Villa Jolanda Prosecco is made from 100% Prosecco grapes grown in the hills north of Treviso.  Grapes are hand-harvested, chilled in the vineyard, and given a low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit.  The wine features lovely aromas of white flowers, orchard fruits, and a touch of mineral.  Lightly sparkling with very pretty, small, bubbles, the wine is full of flavor - peach, ripe apple, lemon zest, and a nice mineral streak.  Fruity and crisp, the wine finishes with a touch of mineral and yellow apple.  A fantastic wine to keep on hand for everyday celebrations or to stock up on for Holiday parties.  Delicious!

Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011 Product #27038 (In Stock)
Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011 Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011

We have no idea how such a delicious wine made from 30 year-old, dry farmed, Tempranillo vines in La Manacha could be quite this inexpensive…but we’re glad it is! This is real, honest, “vinous” wine, packed with cranberry and black cherry fruit, accents of licorice root and cracked pepper, and long, smooth and refreshing on the finish.  A perfect wine for big celebratory parties, weddings, back yard cookouts, or just sipping all on its own.

“Bright ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by black pepper and candied rose. Tightly focused red berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and floral qualities. Emphatically fruity and silky in texture, with a smooth, gently sweet finish.”International Wine Cellar 88 points

Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011 Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011

Here's the kind of value that made Spain famous in the international wine world, but that seems to have vanished in recent years. And, the 2011 is even tastier than the very fine 2010!  This is 100% Tempranillo, aged 3 years in American Oak, and it delivers loads of honest, unconfected, aromas and flavors with a juicy, zingy, finish.  A fine party or backyard cookout red at a very compelling price.

Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012 Product #27878 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012

Long one of our – and Robert Parker’s – “go to” wineries for great value reds, this Campo de Borgia Garnacha specialist has outdone itself with a brilliant 2012.  A perfect bottle to serve to a crowd or sip on its own after a hard day, this will also sing with anything from salmon to burgers or roast pork.

“Expressive aromas of black raspberry, violet and white pepper. Supple, spicy and pliant, with an appealingly sweet quality to the dark berry, spice and floral flavors. Plenty of personality here, especially at the price. Finishes on a refreshingly bitter note, with silky tannins and very good persistence.” International Wine Cellar 89 points

“If you have not yet discovered the great values of Bodegas Borsao, it’s about time you do. The 2012 Borsao Tinto, is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Tempranillo aged in stainless steel. Made in the fourth straight drought vintage in the province of Zaragoza, this has been a big-time winner in just about every vintage it has been produced. A delicious black cherry, crushed chalk and flower-scented nose jumps from the glass of this richly fruity, medium to full-bodied, supple, velvety-textured red. This mouthfilling 2012 should drink well for several years.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2012 Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2012

A very nice value Chardonnay that comfortably over-delivers vs. its modest price tag. No oak here, just bushels of clean, crisp, Chardonnay apple and stone fruit with a hint of caramelized pineapple.  Juicy and clean, this is a mid-weight white that's just perfect for parties or weeknight sipping.

Bricco Dei Tati Cortese Piemonte 2012 Product #28090 (In Stock)

Cortese is best known as the grape of Gavi, but it's grown seldom as interesting as this! This wine is surprisingly complex on the nose, although we struggled to put it to words. Think of smelling an herbal infusion with lemon, honey, and lavender on a sunny day. (Fanciful, but it's the best I could do!) In the mouth the wine is clean and crisp with notes of lemon, bees wax, and fresh herbs complicated by something hard to describe but vaguely grapefruity. finishes clean and fresh with just a hint of green apple. this is going to be our "go to" for picnics, cold seafood salads, and simple chicken dishes. A whole lotta wine for the money.

Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Product #27154 (In Stock)
Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012

The motto here is “Gascony seen by a feminine point of view.”  Other than the fact that the estate is led by women, I’m not sure what that really means, but this is a heck of a delicious white for summer sipping.  The blend is 80% Colombard – the main white grape in Gascony – for bright acidity and round texture and 20% Sauvignon Blanc for a big burst of fruit and touch of fresh hay.  The fruit flavors coat your palate with ripe green melon, golden apple, and orange/tangerine flavors set off by lemony acids, a dash of minerality, and a whiff of fresh cut grass.  A great summer sipper that delivers Sauvignon Blanc-like flavors that have been softened and tamed by the Colombard.  Yummy.

De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 Product #27161 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012

The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano. 

This 2012 Falerio is a fresh, young, wine with all of the refreshing, spritzy qualities of the 2011, but with an extra notch of richness.  The aromas are like sniffing limes and peaches at the beach-plenty of green and orchard fruit aromas with a saline note of the sea in the background.  On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Staggering value.

Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012 Product #27182 (In Stock)
Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012 Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012

This is 100% Viura grown in selected sites across Rioja. The ripe grapes are pressed and the juice goes into all new barrels - a mixture of French and American oak and acacia - to ferment and rest for 3 months. After that, the wine moves into stainless steel to complete its maturation, retaining freshness and verve to go along with the light oak influence.

The 2012 is a lot like the 2011 but a tad richer and deeper. Give it a sniff, and you'll be rewarded with pretty springtime aromas of peach, pineapple, and almond blossom. Take a sip and you'll discover a round, creamy, textured wine that's bursting with zesty fruit and juicy acids. After you swallow, you'll notice the fresh flavors lingering nicely as a hint of honey and bitter almond emerge at the end. Almost too easy to drink by itself for refreshment and fun, you'll love how this enhances warm weather favorites like fresh fish, grilled mushrooms, or marinated chicken.

Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010 Product #27542 (In Stock)
Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010 Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010

A brilliant value in sophisticated, 100% Tempranillo Rioja, hand harvested and aged in traditional American Oak.  A bit shockingly for a wine at this price point, this is built to age 5-8 years but is delicious now with 30 minutes or so in decanter.

"Vivid ruby. Ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth. Pliant and seamless in texture, with good heft and back-end energy. Finishes smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing shape and grip. Still on the young side but this wine drinks very well with an hour or so of decanting; it's an excellent value for Rioja."International Wine Cellar 90 points

"Displays oodles of white chocolate, spicy oak, black cherry jam and strawberries in a fruit-forward, medium-bodied but luscious and authoritative style. This is a silky-textured, full-flavored wine to drink over the next several years." Wine Advocate 89 points

Vis A Vie Cabernet 2011 Vis A Vie Cabernet 2011

Two surprises here. First, that it's such a delicious bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon at this super-savings price. The aromas and palate are clean and easy with generous blackcurrant and black cherry fruit accented by notes of roasted coffee and fresh herb.  Soft and round through the middle with just enough tannin to stand up to food (but to not get in the way of solo sipping).  The second surprise?  Look on the back of the bottle and see where it's from...

Val De Salis Chardonnay 2012 Product #27992 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Chardonnay 2012 Val De Salis Chardonnay 2012

The Gau family has owned these tidy vineyards not far from the medieval city of Carcassonne in the heart of the Languedoc for 100 years.  But, grapes have grown here far longer and the vineyards were thriving when the phylloxera louse made its appearance in France in the 1870s.  As vineyards all around began to wither and die, the owners here took advantage of an unusual access to water and began flooding their vineyards every spring for 50 days – just long enough to drown phylloxera larva.  The Gau family continues this tradition, making this one of the very few European vineyards where wine grapes grow on their own roots, rather than being grafted on to American grape rootstocks.

The Gau family is unusual for Languedoc growers in another way – they make only “single varietal” wines rather than the field blends of Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah common all around them.  This purportedly 100% Chardonnay thrives in the rocky soils and warm climate here, and delivers lovely aromas of ripe pear and apple with pretty floral accents.  The flavors start crisp and refreshing and get even better with a little air, with sweet Bosc pear, peach and apricot flavors gaining complexity from the barest hint of caramel and mineral.  No oak here to interfere with the fruit, and we suspect a little Viognier has snuck into the Chardonnay vines, giving this much more perfume and peach than normally found this far south.  A luscious mouthful of wine with a crisp, clean, finish that will delight at a party and make you think of springtime when sipped on its own.

Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012 Product #28038 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012 Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012

Malbec surged to international fame on the strength of the darkly fruited, ripe, and lush examples grown in Argentina’s Mendoza vineyards.  But, before that, it was the basis of one of the most famous wines of late medieval Europe, the intense, earthy, bitingly tannic “black wines” of Cahors in the Southwest of France. The 2012 Val De Salis Malbec from vineyards near the French walled city of  Carcassonne sort of splits the difference in these two styles to deliver a big mouthful of juicy, complex, fruity fun.

You’ll find plenty of New World fruit here, with generous dollops of red plum, raspberry and tangy pie cherry in the aromas and on the palate.  And, you’ll also notice the Old World notes of fresh leather, licorice root, and the notes of lavender, thyme, and black olive the French call garrigue.  On the finish, the New/Old World influence merge to deliver lingering red fruit, licorice, and lavender flavors, bright acidity, and just the right dose of dusty tannin.  What you won’t find is any oak to get in the way of the pure, clean, and refreshing flavors.  Structured enough to sing with burgers, pizza, grilled chicken or most any everyday food, but soft and generous enough to just sip at a party.  And, a steal at this price!

Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013 Product #28207 (In Stock)
Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013 Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013

Back before Aussie Shiraz started to taste the same - thick, heavy, and laboring under a load of over-toasted oak - we used to find great value reds like this with ease.  Harder now, but still very much possible as one sip of the fresh, clean, and just 13.9% abv Gossford Shiraz shows.  This is all about ripe Shiraz fruit - black grape, black plum, blackberry, cherry and more - with great lift from juicy fruit acids.  The well-moderated oak treatment (6 months in French and American barrels) adds attractive spice and smoke notes and rounds off Syrah's rough edges without getting in the way of drinking fun.  "Fun" is really what this fantastic value red is all about.  And, at this price, you can share it with a crowd or just enjoy the fun anytime by itself or with everything from grilled beef to pizza.

Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Product #28208 (In Stock)
Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013

AVERY QUINN CHARDONNAY FANS! Believe it or not, we've found a dead ringer for the very popular Avery Quin Chardonnay, with only two main differences:  1) it's from Australia; and, 2) it's an even better deal!  A California-based "negotiant" took advantage of the ripe 2013 harvest in Australia to purchase beautifully ripe Chardonnay and have it aged 5 months in French oak barrels.  Then - to keep costs down - it's shipped to the USA in an airtight bladder and bottled in California.

Leaving that all aside, it's flat out delicious.  Juicy apple and pear fruit take center stage with accents of spice, salty caramel, and just a touch of butter.  Rich and creamy, but with air it gets a bit more juicy with crisp apple livening the finish, but the pear, caramel, toasted nut, and hint of butter keep pumping through from first sip to last. A stunning value in a great everyday Chardonnay for parties, sipping, or most any food.

Another great vintage for this perennial "best value" Garnacha from Campo de Borgia.  Powerful, deep aromas of black raspberry and cherry with accents of minerals and fresh cut flowers.  Juicy and fresh in the mouth but with plenty of dark berry and cherry fruit and hints of lavender and liquorice.  Long and clean on the spicy finish over oodles of ripe fruit.  Easy to drink, but worth attending to.

This 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet clearly demonstrates just how under-rated this variety is. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around daily white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Product #27994 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE

Half Bottle!  Another great release from one of the Rhone's most important estates.

"As for the red wines, first and foremost is Guigal’s Cotes du Rhone. I re-tasted the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which is still in foudre. This cuvee is typically a blend of 50% Syrah and the rest Grenache and perhaps some Mourvedre. Guigal is known throughout the Rhone Valley for paying the highest price for generic Cotes du Rhone, and that in large part explains the quality of this wine year in and year out. It enjoys an extended upbringing in foudre and stainless steel tanks and is always a dense ruby/purple-colored wine with lots of blue and black fruits intermixed with notions of kirsch, licorice, lavender and spice. Supple and surprisingly intense, this delicious effort can age for 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 89 points

"Offers a roasted feel, with dark bramble, plum and tobacco notes accented by hints of pastis and apple wood, leading to a ganache- and charcoal-infused finish. Distinctive in feel, revealing a prominent yet integrated woodsy element."Wine Spectator 89 points
