Cune Rioja Rosado 2013 Product #29488 (In Stock)
Cune Rioja Rosado 2013 Cune Rioja Rosado 2013

From classic Rioja producer Cune comes this delicious 100% Tempranillo rose.  With plenty of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit, it's a little gutsier than the paler roses from the south of France, although it still has a nice dry, crisp finish.  A great rose to pair with grilled salmon or sausages all summer long.

Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Product #28545 (In Stock)
Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013

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.

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.

Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine 2014 Product #29638 (In Stock)
Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2014 Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2014

Having converted his Clos des Grand Primos vineyard to certified organic farming, Michel Bedouet is delivering on Muscadet’s potential.  The vineyard is a rocky mess of granite, schist and gneiss - no fun to farm, but wonderful for Muscadet's Melon de Bourgogne grape.  The 2014 delivers all the saline minerality and chiseled cut you'd expect from fine Muscade, but also a generous roundness to the texture and a plenty of ripe apple and tangy lemon-lime fruit. You’ll taste the benefits of extended aging on the lees – spent yeast cells left after fermentation – in the wine’s wet stone and chalk minerality, but love how the fresh fruit holds center stage and pumps on through a long finish of lemon, apple, lime zest and fresh thyme.  Sure, it’s a great wine for shellfish, but you’ll love it with almost any summertime dish or simply all on its own.

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013 Product #28782 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2013

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grunschnabel 2014 Product #29781 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Grunschnabel 2014 Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Grunschnabel 2014

The Steininger family call this wine “Grünschnabel” – literally a young duck (a “green beak”) but better understood as “whipper-snapper” or “newbie”  - because it’s the first wine bottled and released each year, just in time for summer refreshment.  Grown in sites dotted across Kaptal – perhaps Austria’s best Grüner Veltliner region – fermented and raised in cool stainless steel, it’s bottled and released young and fresh.

An early summer release, but one full of late summer aromas and flavors:  ripe peach, spicy pear, and Ginger Gold apple fruit accented by dashes off fresh sugar snap pea, fresh ginger, white pepper, and a tangy/herbal dash of Meyer lemon.  It smells and tastes great, and feels even better on your palate.  The wine enters with a bright, snappy, tingle and then drapes flavor and refreshment over your palate like a pretty summer tablecloth falls across a picnic table.  Then, the lemony acid pops out to scrub everything clean, leaving behind clean, refreshing, notes of snap pea, Granny Smith apple, white pepper, and a hint of wet river stone.  A wine that will cool you off, make you smile, and pull you back for another sip – or thirst-quenching gulp!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro "K" Bianco 2013 Product #28474 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro

The gang at Alto Adige's Kelleri Kaltern winery just keep pumping out great value wines, but the new "K" series may be the best deals yet. It's a blend of wonderfully ripe Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc that explodes from the glass with aromas of citrus, apple, peach, green melon, and exotic spice.  In the mouth it's fresh and bright with flavors of crunchy green melon, white peach, papaya and more lemon/lime citrus.  Easy drinking, refreshing, wine that finishes with a nice little tangy kick and pulls you back for more.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Product #28504 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2012

A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%). This is a soft, fruit filled, take on Bordeaux that fills your mouth with juicy red currant and black berry fruit accented by a touch of spice.  Subtle notes of fresh herb and tobacco keep this anchored in Bordeaux, and there’s just the enough ripe tannin to let it work well at table (but not enough to get in the way of solo sipping).

Another great release yet from young winemaker Paul Direder.  A golden straw color with delightful aromas of stone fruits and spice. Jam-packed with extract and flavor kept fresh by vibrant, intense, minerality and acids.  Crazy value at $10.99 - especially in a one liter bottle that's big enough to share at a party!

Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013 Product #29522 (In Stock)
Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013 Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013

This Languedoc Viognier screams springtime.  Made without any oak to obscure its varietal character, this Viognier has plenty of fresh peach and tangerine flavors, and those signature floral aromas that make Viognier so enticing.  Despite all the ripe flavors, it has enough acidity to finish clean and make your mouth water.  Perfect for chicken salad or melon and prosciutto.

Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Product #29582 (In Stock)
Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014

Equal parts Grecanico, Inzolia and Grillo from Sicily, this delivers the richness you'd expect from warm Sicily with plenty of citrusy acidity to keep things fresh.  Delivers loads of pineapple, peach, pear and apple fruit with a big squirt of lemony acids and a touch of seashell minerality.  The texture is creamy and round, with no hard edges, but the real story here is the juicy fresh fruit and zesty finish.  A fine alternative to both Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc!

Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013 Product #29704 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013 Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013

A delicious, exotic, and wild Torrontes that somehow retains enough focus and control to work with food, too. It's a bit like a cross between Muscat (exotic fruit and floral notes) and Gewurztraminer (ginger and warm spice) with loads of peach and mango at the core.  Lovely sweetness to the fruit flavors and fine acidity to balance the lite residual sugar at the end.  Exciting stuff!

J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2014 375ml J. Mourat Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rose 2014 375ml

Winemaker Jérémie Mourat shrunk his distinctive Fiefs Vendeens Collection Rosé bottle to half-size here, but it’s still 100% of the flavor (and perhaps even more fun!).  It’s a pretty pale pink in color and jam-packed with flavor. Redolent of ripe cherries, fresh strawberry, sweet watermelon, and just a touch of fresh herb, it starts off bright, spreads out to coat your palate, and finishes clean, fresh, and dry.  The half-bottle is perfect to start off an evening or enjoy at a picnic, and it even fits snugly into an insulated beer koozie (not that YOU’D ever drink straight from the bottle, but perhaps your friends have less restraint.)

Here's a versatile and delicious California Chardonnay built to satisfy a crowd - and you!  Ripe, creamy, and fresh, the aromas and flavors feature juicy apple, pineapple, peach, citrus, and salty caramel. Mostly made in stainless steel for brightness and fruit, the 15% aged in oak delivers just a hint of smoke to complement the buttery notes on the back.  Lots of lees stirring gives it a creamy, round, mouthfeel and the juicy apple and sweet butter caramel flavors linger nicely on the fresh finish. A fine party or everyday Chardonnay and outstanding value.

A 100% Grenache from this family-owned, organic estate with holdings in an area of unique terroir in the Southern Rhone known as "Le Plan de Dieu," whose soil is full of 'galets,' the smooth, round stones characteristic of the region. While the aromas have that classic herbal garrigue note, on the palate the fruit is bold, satisfying, and ripe flavors of blackberries and luciously ripe raspberries.

Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010 Product #29210 (In Stock)
Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010 Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010

This was supposed to be a $24 “Premium” red, and we certainly found enough in the bottle and the enthusiastic critical reviews to support that price. Like most of our Mendoza favorites, it’s a blend of Malbec (for lush, opulent, fruit) and Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and class).  Sustainable farming - no herbicides or fertilizers, natural spring water irrigation - hand harvesting, double sorting on vibrating tables, and up to a year in French oak (20% new), and a little extra time in bottle before release all sound like a recipe for great wine and big prices.

No idea why the price dropped to this level, but it’s a flat-out steal.  It’s a  blockbuster steakhouse Malbec/Cabernet blend that’s loaded with black fruit, licorice, and spice over firm, dusty, tannins.  Anyone who wants a serious steak wine for a not very serious price would do way to snap up some of this before everyone else catches on and the price pops back up to where it’s supposed to be.

“Intense mineral and berry aromas show class and touches of mint and resiny wood. This feels crisp, electric and drawing, while flavors of graphite, mint, raw oak, vanilla, plum and raspberry run onto a lightly herbal, medium-length finish. Drink this tightly wound, fresh young blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot now through 2020.”Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Feudi Branciforti Dei Bordonaro Nero d'Avola 2013 Feudi Branciforti Dei Bordonaro Nero d'Avola 2013

If you've enjoyed Firriato's Chiramonte Nero d'Avola over the years, then check out this new project from the hills of Sicily's Trapani region.  It's one of the most pure, delicious, Nero d'Avola wines we've run across in years - especially at this price!  Generous aromas of spiced black fruit and tar lead to juicy, focused, flavors of roasted raspberry, black plum, spice, and warm earth. The dark, rich, flavors stay wonderfully fresh as a note of tangy cherry juice  provides lift and fine, light, tannins give support.  The black fruit, spice, and tar notes linger nicely and draw you back for another sip.  Great with anything roasted or grilled or just to enjoy on its own.

Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013 Product #29749 (In Stock)
Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013 Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013

One of the more delicious summer-weight Pinot Noirs we've run across recently, and certainly the best value.  If you enjoy Sancerre Rouge (at one-third the price), then Catherine and Michel Langlois's elegant Pinot will be right up your alley.  It's from Pougny, not far from Sancerre, in the Loire Valley and opens with aromas of black tea and ripe red fruits that carry on through the pure, stony, palate and long, generous, finish.  Give it a chill and take it out on a picnic or serve it a bit warmer with pate, ripe cheeses, or even duck.

Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012 Product #27782 (In Stock)
Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012 Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012

A straight-ahead, lightly oaked, Tempranillo with good richness, plenty of fruit and spice, and enough acidity to stay fresh.

"Aged for six months in two- and three-year-old French oak. Bright purple. Smoky cherry and dark berries on the fragrant nose. Lush and open-knit, offering appealingly sweet blueberry and boysenberry flavors accented by a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes smooth and spicy, with a hint of tannins and good persistence."International Wine Cellar 89 points

“The 2012 Paso a Paso Tempranillo is even better. Aged six months in neutral French oak, it displays a savory, slightly fleshier style than its organic cousin. A sleeper of the vintage, it reveals a deep plum/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of black currants and jammy black cherries, excellent purity and texture, and a medium-bodied finish. This delicious red is an outrageous value. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.”Wine Advocate 89 points
