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.

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 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!

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 Product #28383 (In Stock)
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

Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010 Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010

Plenty of ripeness from this Washington State Bordeaux blend, but also a sense of freshness and clarity to the fruit and spice flavors to go along with overt oak barrel notes.  A classic Washington state blend of Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet franc, with a dash of Syrah..  It's full-bodied, ripe and delicious, with flavors of briary blackberries and plums - great for beef or lamb on the grill.

Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010 Product #28299 (In Stock)
Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010 Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010

We don't know much about Bearboat, but they sure do make a nice Russian River Pinot Noir!  Made from fruit purchased from various vineyards around the Valley, vinified carefully and then given 10 months in small French oak.  The wine shows pretty scents of black cherry with a bit of cassis and toast.  In the mouth plenty of stawberry, raspberry and classic Russian River candied cherry fruit are complemented by some nice hints of fresh earth and smoke.  The wine is nicely balanced - rich, but good freshness - and shows a pretty note of licorice on the finish.  Nice wine, nice value.

Benotto Monferrato Rosso Nebieul (Nebbiolo) 2010 Benotto Monferrato Rosso Nebieul (Nebbiolo) 2010

The short version - this is classy Nebbiolo with plump cherry fruit, a lash of balsamic and rose petal, and fine, chewy, tannins.  Longer version, here in Asti's Barbera country, there's no DOC for Nebbiolo, so it's bottled as a regional wine with the local dialect name for Nebbiolo - "Nebieul" - on the label.  Blows away most $20 Nebbiolo d'Langhe or more expensive Gattinara!

Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013 Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013

Certified Organic Grapes.  Betes Curieusses is a partnership of two Jeremies - Huchet and Mourat - who are making some of the most exciting terroir-driven Muscadet we've ever seen.  This wine comes from vineyards laced with decomposed granite over sand, warm soils that give remarkable ripeness.  It's a round, fruit-filled, Muscadet - almost creamy in texture - with a touch of peach to complement the salty mineral and lime zest.  Brisk, bracing, and utterly delicious.

Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011 Product #28229 (In Stock)
Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011 Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011

As Steve Tanzer said about the 2010, "This wine isn't shy about the fruit." From dry-farmed, old vines, grown in the scrubby vineyards of Campo de Borgia, this delivers a huge mouthful of intense Garnacha flavors:  black and red raspberry, black and Bing cherry, licorice, white pepper and more.  Plenty of ripeness, especially on the back where a kirsch-like flavor emerges, but it's also savory black pepper and fine lift and energy. Finishes dry and even a little floral with dark berry lingering on.  Fun to sip; great with any rustic food.  A steal.

Billo Priorat Negre 2010 Product #28440 (In Stock)
Billo Priorat Negre 2010 Billo Priorat Negre 2010

Priorat tends to be a massive, intense, and cellar-worthy wine that needs time in cellar or big food to shine.  So, the 2010 Billo Negre is a very special treat – a supple, open, blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and a little Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers plenty of classic Priorat character in a “drink me now” style.  Generous aromas of black plums, blackberry, warm stones and a touch of savory herb waft from the glass.  In the mouth the fruit turns more Grenache-like with raspberry and red plum joining the cassis and blue/black fruits and a touch of luscious milk chocolate coming up on the end.  It’s full of flavor and nicely concentrated, but stays wonderfully fresh and pure on the dark berry, chocolate, and warm stone finish. The soft, fine-grained, tannins give this more than enough heft to pair with pork tenderloin or lamb loin chops, but it’s pretty darn tasty all by itself, too.  A stellar value from rocky, dry, remote, Priorat.
