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!

Dom Du Pere Caboche VDP Vaucluse Blanc 2013 Product #29224 (In Stock)
Dom Du Pere Caboche VDP Vaucluse Blanc 2013 Dom Du Pere Caboche VDP Vaucluse Blanc 2013

We don't really know what is in this white Rhone field blend, but it's easy enough to recognize how delicious it is!  Peach and apricot stone fruit take center stage with something aromatic riding on top (Viognier?) and a snap of citrus (Sauvignon?) on the bright finish. At once rich and fresh, it's more delicious and refreshing than most $15 white Rhones and much longer on the lingering finish.

El Cortijillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2014 Product #29946 (In Stock)
El Cortijillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2014 El Cortijillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2014

The past three vintages of this 100% Tempranillo from the land of Don Quixote and windmills pulled down 88 point ratings from Steve Tanzer’s IWC (now Vinous).  This edition is clearly better even as the price stays crazy, wonderfully, low.

It’s all Tempranillo from 30+ year-old vines grown on the dry, dusty, plains of La Manacha and made all in stainless steel tank (no oak at all).  And, pure Tempranillo joy and fun is what you’ll find here in spades.  The generous aromas feature crushed black cherry, plum, and blackberry fruit with a subtle accent of exotic sandalwood or Indian spice - a Tempranillo signature. On the palate, it's medium bodied and very juicy with tangy ripe blackberry and sour cherry flavors at the fore and notions of crushed tobacco, fresh herb, white pepper and bitter chocolate adding interest.  Vigerous, extroverted, and fresh, the sweet fruit flavors pump on deep into the juicy cherry/plum/berry finish where fine tannins give support and mouthwatering acids a happy lift.  Refreshingly fun with a chill and ready to delight with a wide range of foods.

Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009 Product #29108 (In Stock)
Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009 Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009

Mencia and Bierzo – the region of Spain on the border of verdant Galicia and harsh, dry, Castilla Y Leon – seem made for each other.  In fact, the Mencia grape probably originated here as a mutation of much older, now lost, vines.  And, the Alvarez de Toledo family has about 300 years experience with growing and making wine in Bierzo, so it’s not entirely surprising they got this one right.  This is the kind of nicely fruity, medium-bodied, red that’s fun to drink all by itself and easy to pair with pretty  much anything you put on your weeknight table.  It’s a fine quaffer, but there’s more than enough complexity here if you feel like paying attention.

"Balsamic, leather, and black fruits are the principal notes struck by this suave effort that over-delivers in a big way. Like its older sibling, it can be enjoyed now but will have more to say in 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 Product #29363 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish.

Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Product #29496 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012

Here's an outstanding value from little-known Calatayud in Spain that will do just as well on the bar for a party as it will with roasted meats or robust sausage.  It's based on 85% Garnacha from 40-50 year old bush-trained vines that have to dig deep into their non-irrigated soils for water and nutrients.  About 7% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo add structure and some black fruit notes and a dash of Syrah give meaty spice.

The 2011 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites of both 2013 and 2014, and the new vintage cranks up the intensity and depth even more.  The aromas are robust and fresh, with generous dollops of raspberry, violet and spice (just from the grapes - no oak used at all!).  The flavors follow with more raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, hints of dark chocolate and more spice.  With air, the fruit gets darker and richer, but a touch of citrusy acid and light, crisp, tannins keeps things fresh even as complex flavors of balsamic and baked strawberry linger.  Supple enough for a party, structured enough for most anything you’ll pull off the grill, and a steal of a deal, too!

"A very honest, fresh and fruit-driven red with aromas of cherries, garrigue and thyme with a medium-bodied palate, some weight and tannins that would do better with food. This is a red that sells for a song."Wine Advocate 88 points

Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2014 Product #29839 (In Stock)

A fun, flavorful, and fine value Tuscan Sangiovese made by Paolo Masi from grapes grown near Rufina in Chianti. Ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and red berry start off bright and fresh and then get darker with a little air. The juicy acidity and light tannins make this easy to just sip, but give it enough substance to enjoy with pizza, burgers, or a big bowl of pasta and red sauce.  There's enough going on here to hold your interest through a few glasses and - especially at this price - tempt you to open a second bottle as the night goes on.  Fun stuff!

Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Product #29849 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Los Ailos Syrah-Malbec 2013 Product #27960 (In Stock)
Los Ailos Syrah-Malbec 2013 Los Ailos Syrah-Malbec 2013

As much as we love Argentina's straight Malbec wines, they can get even better with the help of a blending partner.  In the Los Ailos, Syrah plays that role, taking what would have been a pleasant, juicy, red to a whole new level of richness and flavor.

The 2013 Los Ailos Syrah/Malbec opens with pretty aromas of ripe cherry and black plum.  Then, in the mouth, it's ripe and juicy with plenty of fresh black fruit, a little leather, and a nice touch of minerality.  It's balanced and fresh with a fine spread of ripe tannin on the back promising good things at table.  Very nice value.

Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2012 Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2012

Here's the kind of value that made Spain famous in the international wine world, but that seems to have vanished in recent years. It's 100% Tempranillo done in tank that, as a Robert Parker said of the 2011, is "a delicious, quasi-fruit bomb offering loads of berry fruit, roasted herb, lavender and earthy, peppery notes."  A fine party or backyard cookout red at a very compelling price.

Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011 Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011

Number 8 on Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2014!   The grape blend here is a good example of why folks find Portuguese wine intimidating:  Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Caladoc, Castelão, Pinot Noir, and Touriga Nacional are in there somewhere!  The winemaking is pretty straight ahead, with fermentation in tank and just a little time in barrel and bottle before release.  But there’s a nice touch of complexity to the plump, juicy, aromas and flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, and tangy plum fruit and accents of crushed violets and lavender.  At just 12.5% abv, you can enjoy this solo with a chill or pair it everything from fried chicken to grilled tuna or burgers.

"A dark colored, dense wine that is rich and firmly structured. Aged in wood, it holds flavors of plum and berry fruits balanced with a fresh acidity. This is a wine for aging, its structure a powerful statement. Drink from 2014.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Castillo Ducay Rosado 2014 Product #29511 (In Stock)
Castillo Ducay Rosado 2014 Castillo Ducay Rosado 2014

Spain’s Cariñena region is scorching hot during the day, shockingly cool at night, and covered in layers and layers of fractured rock and pebbles – in other words, a great place to make great rosé!  The label here honors the local name for Cariñena wines - “el vino de las piedras” or  “wine of the rocks”  - while the wine in the bottle is a testament to how dedicated local growers are bringing this historically important wine region back to prominence.

It’s a blend of mostly Garnacha with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for complexity and color.  And there’s plenty of color – the wine almost fluoresces in the glass with the brilliant pink taking on almost lavender highlights. The aromas are just as exuberant as the color – big scents of watermelon granite, ripe strawberry, blood orange, and even a little white pepper.  The wine dances across your palate with juicy lemon acidity carrying flavors of candied watermelon, red berries, and plenty of sweet/sour citrus.  It finishes dry and crisp, with a Jolly Rancher-like tang to the lingering watermelon, tangerine, and orange zest flavors.  There’s a lot of complexity – and even more fun! – here, especially at this very attractive price.

Les Vigneaux Merlot Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Merlot Pays D' Oc 2014

Merlot isn't the first grape you think of when looking at a bottle of wine from Languedoc, but the famed Mas de Daumas Gassac proved years ago that Merlot can do very well in the stony, sunny, vineyards around the town of Gignac.  Here, the local co-op, Les Vignerons de la Vicomté, has turned out an easy-drinking Merlot treat!

It's a clean, fresh, fruity Merlot with pretty red currant and berry fruit and accents of chocolate and spice.  Smooth and easy on the palate and supple and clean on the fruit and chocolate finish where just a touch of fresh herb adds interest.  Fun stuff!

Stunning blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo, and 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.

"Deep ruby. Cherry, dark berries, vanilla and peppery spices on the fragrant nose. Smooth, pliant and juicy, showing a subtle spiciness to its open-knit blackberry and cherry flavors. Finishes smoky, broad and persistent, leaving dark berry and black pepper notes behind. Lots of wine for the money here, as is normal for this bottling."International Wine Cellar 89 points

"Another steal in terms of wine value is the 2013 Garnacha, which is a 15,000-case blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Tempranillo that is fermented and aged in stainless steel. This special cuvée has been a huge success commercially for many years. Lots of strawberry, black cherry and fruitcake aromas intermixed with hints of earthy, sandy notes jump from the glass of this 2013. It reveals vivid, exuberant fruit, medium body, super purity and a wonderful, fresh, lively, boisterous, satisfying style. This Grenache fruit-bomb should be drunk over the next several years."Wine Advocate 89 points

De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013 Product #29003 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013 De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013

Best vintage yet for this fresh, fruit-filled, Italian white. 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. 

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.
