14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

A perennial "Best Seller" in restaurants, and a very fine value in Washington Cabernet. 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon features aromas of red currants and raspberries with subtle hints of spice. Spiced cherry & plum flavors are joined by notes of cocoa and complemented by fine velvety tannins. A little Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot help drive the fruit forward and keep things soft and lush.

One of the top 20 wine-by-the-glass offerings in US restaurants, 14 Hands Merlot is also a big favorite in the store!  This soft, almost juicy, Merlot is packed with cherry and red berry fruit and just a dash of wood spice and classic Merlot herbs.  The wine is round and well-focused, and a perfect match with just about any weeknight meal.

Adami Prosecco Bosco Di Gica NV Product #5592 (In Stock)
Adami Prosecco Bosco Di Gica NV Adami Prosecco Bosco Di Gica NV

A stylish Prosecco made primarily from the Glera (formerly "Prosecco") grape plus 3 or 4% Chardonnay for texture and named for the region where the Adami family's first vineyards were located.  The aromas and flavors are classic - lemon, golden apple, peach, pineapple and just a hint of toasted nut. The texture is extraordinary, though, with a creamy richness and zesty definition not often seen in Prosecco.  A touch of sea brine and passion fruit comes up on the clean, crisp, finish as your mouth waters and your hand reaches back to pour another glass.  Compelling and great value, too!

Adami Prosecco Vigneto Giardino 2012 Product #28345 (In Stock)
Adami Prosecco Vigneto Giardino 2012 Adami Prosecco Vigneto Giardino 2012

Abele Adami purchased the Giardino vineyard in 1920 and by 1933, it was recognized as Prosecco's first "Cru" or great vineyard.  For more nearly 95 years, the Adami family has been making stunning sparkling wine from this famous site. As always, the 2012 Vigneto Giardino is 100% Glera with 3 months lees contact for extra richness and depth.  Spicy aromas of apple, peach, and acacia lead to a rich, deeply textured, mouthful of round tree fruit and chalky spice.  Tastes "important" and classy without losing its sense of joy.  Simply delicious.

For many of you, an opportunity for two “firsts” – your first wine from Moldova and your first pure white wine (not pink – white!) made from the red Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Not sure why the winery went this route, but the results are pretty compelling!  The aromas have some of Sauvignon Blanc's grapefruit and grass notes but the wine's texture is more like Albarino (minerally, sleek) and the flavors of creamy sweet strawberry, pineapple and banana pith suggest something like Verdejo.  There's a snap of jalepeno-like herb on the back, but overall this is nicely cream and fruity and bright.

Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011 Product #28072 (In Stock)
Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011 Amalie Robert Chardonnay Her Silhouette 2011

The cool 2011 Willamette Valley vintage shows through clear as a bell in this bright, crisp,  no-oak, Chardonnay.  Two blocks of Dijon clones were hand harvested in early November and then fermented and aged in tank with no malolactic fermentation.  The result is a wonderfully fresh and elegant Chardonnay, redolent of pineapple, crisp green apple and mango fruit with zippy accents of ginger and  lemongrass.  The richness of the pure Chardonnay fruit is perfectly balanced by the bright acids on the long, mouthwatering, finish.  Focused, pure, and very delicious.

Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2012 Product #28336 (In Stock)
Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2012 Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2012

These guys are best known as a vineyard source for other top Sta. Rita Hills winemakers (e.g. Greg Brewer), but they make a tiny amount of wine on their own as well.  This is a terrific example with more structure and focus than you often find in such ripe, Sta. Rita Hills Pinot.  Fresh Pinot aromas of red berries, wildflowers, and spice open the show and lead to a focused mouthful of cherry, redcurrant, and raspberry fruit with accents of warm spice, earth, and cola.  Gets a little more smoky with air, but stays focused and fresh through the supple, sweetly fruited, finish.  Delicious now - but gone soon, because only 600 cases made!

Andre Brunel of Chateauneuf du Pape's Les Cailloux serves up a tasty, easygoing, Cotes du Rhone here for solo sipping and with enough grip to enjoy with casual foods.  A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% old-vinie Cinsault done all in tank.

"A forward, friendly style, with melted red licorice, plum sauce and cinnamon notes, offering a polished feel on the finish."Wine Spectator 87 points

Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012 Product #28301 (In Stock)
Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012 Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012

A big Malbec that stays poised and focused, with half the wine raised in tank for freshness.

"The opaque purple-colored 2012 Malbec is a big (14.5% natural alcohol), 1,800-case cuvee that spent time in both neutral tanks (50%) and oak (50%). It reveals some spicy oak notes along with a big, sweet kiss of blackberry and black raspberry fruit as well as hints of camphor and white flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, lush, opulent Malbec to enjoy over the next 4-5 years, perhaps longer."Wine Advocate 91 points

Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012 Product #28495 (In Stock)
Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012 Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros 2012

We loved Michael Pozzan's 2007 Annabella Pinot Noir Carneros, but haven't been as enthused by subsequent releases - until now!  In what will go down as a great Pinot Noir vintage, this roars back into form with loads of black berry and dark strawberry fruit framed in rich, earthy, spice.  The texture is pure Carneros - nicely plush, but not heavy or over the top - and there's just enough oak for interest and clove spice without drying out the lush fruit.  A winning Pinot value.

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012 Product #27146 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012

If you thought the Washington Post 3-Star 2011 Gmork was good...well, just try the 2012 and you'll be blown away! Once again, a terrific value in a single-vineyard Gruner made by one of Austria's top winemakers, Tony Bauer. Aromas of wet limestone, apple skin and white flowers emerge from the glass.  In the mouth, the wine bursts with gravelly apple and green peach fruit, loads of citrusy acidity and sweet white flowers.  A touch of white pepper emerges on the long, juicy, finish.  Just as fresh and mouthwateringly delicious as the 2011, but even richer, deeper, and more powerful. A great wine to enjoy on its own or with seafood, veal, or even roast pork.  Delicious and stunning value.

Anton Bauer Rose Wagram 2013 Product #28380 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Rose Wagram 2013 Anton Bauer Rose Wagram 2013

The best vintage yet for this citrusy, crackling, Austrian rosé made from Zweigeld, Merlot, and Syrah.  Bright aromas of cherry, raspberry, lemon zest, and a touch of crushed herb open the show. Then, "bang" goes a big mouthful of red berry, citrus, and candied watermelon fruit with juicy accents of lemon zest, herb and rhubarb.  Full of fruit, but finishing crisp, dry, and mouthwatering, you'll love this for sipping by the pool or with light foods like sushi and salads.  An outstanding bottle of Summer pink!

Antxiola Txakoli 2013 Product #28262 (In Stock)
Antxiola Txakoli 2013 Antxiola Txakoli 2013

Txakoli is a fresh, zippy style of wine from Spain’s Basque country.  Like Vinho Verde, it’s just slightly fizzy, but not fully sparkling.  But unlike its Portuguese cousin, it’s bone dry, bracingly tart, and very mineral, with aromas of lime skin and something fresh and salty reminiscent of the beach.  This great value Txakoli is a natural match for fresh seafood - or try it with sushi!

Arona Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2012 Arona Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2012

This certified sustainable New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc delivers plenty of Kiwi character with a little extra complexity and focus - possibly from 10% Riesling co-fermented with the Sauvignon!  Juicy, bright, and vivacious with generous flavors of pink grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon, lime, and fresh grass.  There's a nice minerality on the mouthwatering finish.  Generous, but nicely in control, this will be just as at home on the table as it is by itself on the back deck.

Au Bon Climat Hildegard White Blend 2009 Product #28061 (In Stock)
Au Bon Climat Hildegard White Blend 2009 Au Bon Climat Hildegard White Blend 2009

Developed as a hommage to very old-fashioned white Burgundy - from the days before Chardonnay was the dominant grape - this is an exotic blend of 55% Pinot Gris, 40% Pinot Blanc, and 5% Aligote all aged in new French oak.  Wild aromas of stone fruit, orange zest, lemon, and smoky oak that gets spicier with air.  It's rich and complex on the palate with flavors of juicy nectarine, pear, and candied citrus with baking spice notes that turn smoky on the long, sweetly fruited, finish.  Brilliant with rich, buttery, poultry or shellfish - and a steal at almost half off!

Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Another solid vintage for what must be one of Napa's most consistent "top value" Cabernet Sauvignon's.  Sappy, fruit-forward, aromas of currant, cherry and blackberry lead to a soft, supple, mouthful of plum, currant and dark berry fruit with accents of cedar, fresh herb, and spice.  The plush velvet tannins give support but don't get in the way of enjoying this easygoing Napa red.

Balia Di Zola Redinoce Sangiovese Di Romagna 2009 Balia Di Zola Redinoce Sangiovese Di Romagna 2009

Balia di Zola is a labor of love for a husband and wife team in Romagna.  They farm 40-year-old Sangiovese vines that they recovered when they formed the estate in 1999.  We flipped for this gutsy, deeply flavored, Sangiovese as soon as we tasted it.  Aromas of dark, ripe blackberries, and leafy forest floor let you know this is a serious Sangiovese.  On the palate, it's got plenty of structure and food-friendly acidity, with enough depth to stand up to gutsy food.  A gem to enjoy with rich food or anything grilled.

Baracchi O'lillo Toscana 2012 Product #27943 (In Stock)
Baracchi O'lillo Toscana 2012 Baracchi O'lillo Toscana 2012

Fruit comes from three different vineyards:  San Martino at 300  meters (where the winery is located), Gabbiano (closer to  Montepulciano and excellent for Syrah and Cabernet), and Montanare (where Sangiovese and Merlot grow on hills fought over by Romans and Carthaginians during the Punic Wars).  The grapes are hand harvested and given gentle fermentations in neutral oak vats before aging in tank and bottling early to preserve fresh fruit and vibrant acids.

The Wine Spectator review seems spot on to us, although we’d note that this really delicious now for the gobs of primary fruit and touch of licorice and spice flavors.  A rare deal on a truly “Super” Tuscan red that will just get better and better with time.

"Round, vibrant and juicy, packing plenty of cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Broad-shouldered and powerful, this remains focused on the fruit. Shows fine length, echoing cherry, spice and mineral notes. Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2016 through 2025."Wine Spectator 92 points
