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

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

Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Product #27594 (In Stock)
Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006

Here's a 2006 Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon (mainly Merlot) Right Bank Bordeaux that’s perfectly ripe at just 13% and perfectly mellowed from time in barrel and cellar. On first pour, both the color and aromas are still show very youthful, with primary scents of fresh red currant and black raspberry accented by notes of tobacco leaf, cocoa, and spice. With a little air, the aromas get darker and richer, showing off this wine's beautiful ripeness.

Seven years time has softened the palate to a silky smooth texture and allowed the pretty berry and currant fruit to come forward.  You're starting to find notes of age here as earthy tobacco, fresh mushroom, and cedar peak out, but the overall thrust is still behind the juicy, fresh, fruit.  Very light, sliky, tannins come up at the end to provide classic Bordeaux structure for food – especially that classic pairing of maturing Bordeaux and lamb!  You can enjoy this now while dinner is in the oven and will be delighted to keep on quaffing it until all the clean-up is done.  Fresh, fruity, delicious, and attractively packaged in an authentic Bordeaux wood case – a fantastic value!

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.

Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha 2012 Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha 2012

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.

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

Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #27006 (In Stock)
Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This is a big "bang for the buck" Cabernet from Chile that reminds you how Chile first established its global reputation for top quality Cab at rock-bottom prices.  Fruit for this wine grows near Chile’s Coastal Mountain range in the Colchagua Valley.  Daytime high temperatures can reach 98 degrees here, but cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean cool the fruit at night to preserve freshness and acidity.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of classic Cabernet fruit –  currant, plum, and blackberries.  It also display's Chile's trademark whiff of herbs and some appealing tobacco aromas, giving the wine more complexity than you’d expect at this price.  In the mouth, it’s juicy and satisfying, with an extra dose of black raspberry and currant fruit.  The juicy acids keep everything in balance and make this a flexible companion with a wide range of foods.

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2011 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2011

A lovely little Rhone value from one of the region's most consistent estates.

"The 2011 Cotes du Rhone rouge displays a forward, dense ruby/plum color and loads of raspberry, pepper and black cherry notes with hints of tobacco leaf and roasted Provencal herbs. A classic Cotes du Rhone made in a bistro style from a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest equal parts Cinsault and Carignan. This has been a reliable producer of terrific values in the Cotes du Rhone (and for their Tavel rose) for a number of years, and they have once again done an admirable job."Wine Advocate 88 points

Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012 Product #28047 (In Stock)
Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012 Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012

A tad bit better and more fun than the Wine Advocate write-up suggests, this charming La Mancha red bursts with blackberry and plum fruit and just touch of complicating spice.  A fruit-forward, fun, wine that's easy to drink and ready to play at your next party or casual meal.

"The 2012 Mundo de Yuntero Tempranillo comes from Cuidad Real from organic vines (including 15% Syrah) and sees no oak contact. It has a clean, fresh boysenberry and small dark cherry nose, while the palate is fleshy and generous on the entry. It finishes a little “generic” but it is a commercially sound Tempranillo at a bargain price."Wine Advocate 90 points

Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2012 Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2012

From a small Barbaresco producer, this fresh and fruity Barbera delivers a lot more complexity and satisfaction than it's humble price suggests.  Fresh and juicy Bing/black cherry fruit roll across your tongue with accents of fresh leather and aged Balsamic.  Long on the palate and mouthwatering finish where very light tannin gives a little extra support.  A pretty sophisticated wine for the price - great with pizza, pasta, or even on its own.

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2012 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2012

SOLD OUT NOW - But More Arrives Tuesday!

Nothing super fancy here - just a really, really, good Cotes du Rhone at a great value price to enjoy with everything from burgers to lamb chops.  About half Grenache with 30% Syrah and then equal parts Carignan and Cinsault, mostly from vines planted in the 1920s and 1930s by former owner Count de Regis de Gatimel.  Most of the luscious, ripe, fruit ferments and ages in tank but part of the Syrah sees barrel to add richness and depth.

A good deal richer and darker than the very popular 2011 edition, the 2012 Segries Cotes du Rhone gushes with aromas and flavors of black berries, chocolate covered cherry, and meaty notes of "garrigue" - the blend of scrub pine, thyme, lavender, juniper and rosemary that provide the unique scent of Provnencal hills and vineyards. The ripe fruit cloaks the ripe, velvety, tannins, making this as much fun to drink on its own as it is to put out on the dinner table.  A winner.

"This estate has been on a qualitative hot streak for more than a decade... The 2012 Cotes du Rhone is composed of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan and 10% Cinsault. It is a fruity, pedal-to-the-metal, peppery, black currant and black cherry-scented and flavored, medium-bodied Cotes du Rhone displaying hints of lavender and garrigue. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 88 points

"Full-bodied but approachable, this wine shows a slightly horsey edge on the nose, and pleasingly suede-like flavors and textures underlying the raspberry fruit. It’s a complex mélange that should likely be consumed over the next couple of years. BEST BUY!"Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Loads of authentic Languedoc character in this classic, if a tad under-priced, blend of 35% Syrah, 30% Carignan, 25% Grenache, and 10% Mourvèdre. From vineyards on the border between Minervois and Corbieres, Millegrand's fruit benefits from the "Carcassonne Gateway" effect - a perfect blend of Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pyrenees climates.  It's gutsy and concentrated, full of dark red and black fruit with accents of Languedoc herb and earth.  Distinctly earthy on the ripe, powerful, finish, this is a fantastic match for roast lamb or grilled pork.

Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012 Product #27165 (In Stock)
Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012 Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012

This is just shockingly interesting and delicious for the money.  It comes from Spain’s Emporda Costa Brava region in the very northeastern corner of Catalonia near the border with France. It’s steep, rocky, territory that’s regularly lashed by the Tramontane, strong northerly winds that can sweep through the region at 70mph.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with traditional Garnacha and Carignon, this is hand-harvested and made in tank.  The show opens with luscious aromas of black plum, crushed blackberries, leather and bitter chocolate with just a touch of lavender.  Then, it’s juicy and fresh in the mouth with loads of sweet blackberry and plum fruit accented by a bit of bitter chocolate, earth and spice flavors. A squirt of blood orange acidity keeps things fresh and dark fruit, nutmeg, and slate notes all linger nicely.  Easy enough to just sip and enough going on to make it a great food wine, too.

A great example of just how good South Africa's Pinotage can be when it's fully ripe and treated with care.  15 months in older barrels rounded this off nicely and lets the dark cherry and plum fruit shine through.  A whiff of what the French call "garrigue" - the blend of thyme, lavender, and scrub pine that permeates the Rhone valley - gives complexity.  Juicy acids and fine tannin provide just the right support. Fine value.
