Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012 Product #28582 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012 Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012

On tasting this, our first thought:  What a great summer red!  It’s full of fresh, thirst-quenching, strawberry and raspberry fruit with just a touch of oak spice and smoke from the few months it spent “warming up” the new oak barrels to be used for longer-aged Crianza and Reserva Rioja wines.  Drink it with a light chill for maximum refreshment or let it warm up a bit to sing with burgers and hot dogs off the grill.

"The 2012 Lopez de Haro Tempranillo is pure young Tempranillo used to break the new barrels for three to four months, showing the purple color and the exuberance of the young fruit with strawberries, raspberries, flowers and red licorice notes. A pleasure to drink slightly chilled with charcuterie. Refreshing and a real bargain.”Wine Advocate 89 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

Epilogo La Mancha Blanco (Sauvignon And Moscatel) 2012 Epilogo La Mancha Blanco (Sauvignon And Moscatel) 2012

A juicy, fresh, and really delicious blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc for citrus, fresh herb and cut and 10% Moscatel for stone fruit and floral notes.  A great solo sipper and will work just fine with salads or seafood, too.

"The 2012 Epilogo is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Moscatel from biodynamically cultivated vines and undergoes a natural ferment. The nose is crisp and lively; displaying lemon thyme, apricot and citrus peel. The palate is well-balanced with elderflower-tinged citrus fruit that fans out towards a flavorsome, clean, precise finish. This is an excellent white La Mancha wine! Drink now."Wine Advocate 90 points

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.

Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012 Product #27452 (In Stock)
Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012 Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  Rain, hail, and wind cut the Chardonnay harvest by about 40% in 2012, giving the Couillauds unusually concentrated, powerful, fruit.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with super energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  This will be fantastic with rich seafood dishes and fresh cheeses.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Product #27353 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  Great value, too.

Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013 Product #28073 (In Stock)
Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013 Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013

Definitely the best vintage yet for this always popular DOC Verdicchio in the traditional curvy bottle. Really bursts with dried lemon, pink grapefruit, Granny Smith apple fruit made even better by a nice dose of stony minerality and a dash of fresh herb. It glides across your palate like silk then finishes brisk and clean and fresh.  Great wine for seafood and salads or just to sip. Under-priced for the quality.

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).

Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012 Product #28632 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012 Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012

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!

A late release from the outstanding 2010 Rhone vintage, this pairs lush fruit with a fine graphite streak.

"This mouthfilling red displays unctuous plum and boysenberry fruit flavors that course along nicely, thanks to lively spice and toasted anise notes, with a strong graphite steak. Fleshy, but excellent acidity is well-embedded on the finish. Drink now through 2015."Wine Spectator 90 points

Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Product #28150 (In Stock)
Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013

Here's a fun, classy, Malbec made entirely from organically grown grapes in the high and dry sunshine of Mendoza.  Aromas of dark black fruit - cherry, currant, raspberry - lead to richly textured flavors of dark fruit, cedar, vanilla and baking spice.  Mouthfilling, but not heavy, it finishes with generous notes of creamy cherry, cedar and spice.  Terrific value and great with burgers or anything roasted or off the grill.

Villa Botanica Cabernet Syrah Pays d'Oc 2011 Product #28466 (In Stock)
Villa Botanica Cabernet Syrah Pays d'Oc 2011 Villa Botanica Cabernet Syrah Pays d'Oc 2011

For everyone who wants rich Cabernet Sauvignon flavors and texture without California's elevated alcohols (and very elevated price tags!).  From 25 year-old, sustainably farmed, vines grown along the Canal du Midi in France's Languedoc region, not far from Carcassonne. The fruit achieved wonderful ripeness in 2011, with the Cabernet Sauvignon delivering blackcurrant, fresh herb, and spice notes and the 30% Syrah dark blackberry, blueberry, and smoke aromas and flavors. No oak here, but plenty of smoked mineral and earth complexity to go with he gushing blueberry/blackberry juicy on the soft, lush, finish. A great grilling, party, and sipping Cabernet with just the right touch of French flair!

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013 Product #28642 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!  Big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (pink grapefruit, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A great solo sipper and very flexible with food.

Paul D Roter Veltliner 2013 Product #28742 (In Stock)
Paul D Roter Veltliner 2013 Paul D Roter Veltliner 2013

Pink-skinned Roter Veltliner is completely unrelated to better-known Grüner, and it serves up a richer, more autumnal, set of flavors but with plenty of spicy white pepper accents and a zesty, crisp, finish that will be welcome now and through Indian Summer and beyond!

Aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, ripe peach, buttered nuts and late summer flowers pull you right down into the glass.  In the mouth, the texture is round and rich but still vibrant and refreshing with generous flavors of right off the tree orchard fruits, spicy white pepper, key lime, and just a hint of warm hazelnut.  The flavors turn more tangy and fresh – think Granny Smith apple and just under-ripe peach – on the juicy, crisp, finish where the subtle pepper note lingers nicely.  A definite winner in the “patio pounder” category but with enough richness and complexity to play well with cheese, sausages, or just about any fish or poultry dish.

Another fine vintage for one of Germany's best value - and most consistent - entry-level Rieslings.  As usual, rich and creamy with bright acidity underneath and plenty of apricot and fresh peach aromas and flavors.  Rich but not heavy and very easy to drink.

"A succulent white, filled with plush red peach, cherry and white currant flavors that are supported by zesty acidity. Long and creamy on the finish, offering plenty of spicy overtones. Impressive for the category. Drink now through 2016. 100,000 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points

Allan Scott makes this cheerful (and cheap!) Sauvignon Blanc for a local distributor, and it's one of those unexpected winners that punch well above their weight.  Generous and fresh aromas of orange blossom, tangerine, and pink grapefruit lead to a zippy, crisp, mouthful of melon and citrus fruit with just a touch of fresh cut grass.  Fun and very tasty.

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before (while still pretty garishly packaged).  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011

This little gem WAY over delivers for its modest price.  Winegrower/maker Federico Benegas Lynch is a master of getting perfectly ripe fruit from his old-vine vineyards and, with help from master consultant Michel Rolland, turning out honest wines of great depth and character.  Here you'll find a fun, fruity, wine with earthy blackberry, blueberry, spice and coffee aromas and flavors.  An iron ore minerality adds complexity and the round tannins and bright acids just the right support.  It's fruitier and not quite as complex as Frederico's Estate Malbec, but just perfect for parties or pairing with everyday meals.
