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!

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.

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.

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.

Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2014 Product #29596 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2014 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2014

Basically a “baby Sancerre”, this exciting young Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the same chalky slate soils you’ll find across Sancerre from 10-40 year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel and allowed to rest 3 months on the fine lees.  The vineyard is located just outside the legal boundary of Sancerre, but the flavors make you feel right in the middle!

As in the past, generous, fresh, aromas of fresh flowers, just cut grass, white grapefruit, and a hint of wet stones burst from the glass.  Then you’ll find a tad more richness and zest to the crisp citrus and green apple fruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh grass.  As the refreshing acidity wells up to make your mouth water, a bit of Sancerre’s trademark “gun flint” character shows underneath the juicy bright fruit.  There’s a wonderful rich/brisk, sweet/sour contrast in this wine that will delight and fascinate with every sip.  Served cold, it’s thirst quenching and refreshing.  Let it warm up a touch and it’s layered, complex, and a fantastic match for seafood, fresh vegetables, and – of course – goat cheese.

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).

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 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!

Egret Chardonnay California 2011 Egret Chardonnay California 2011

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.

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.

Ridge Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2013 Ridge Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2013

A robust bottle of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cab Franc that punches way above it's price.  Dark black currant, cassis and spiced chocolate aromas lead to a rich, dense, mouthful of currant and blackberry fruit with accents of dark chocolate, crushed herb and fresh cracked pepper.  Plush and creamy in the middle before ripe tannins come up at the end to support the chocolate, berry, and spice flavors that linger on.  Outstanding value in Cabernet to serve with hearty food or just sip on its own.

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.

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

Here is my actual tasting note from the first time I tried this:  “This is just stupid delicious.”  A few more details – this is 100% Sangiovese made in staeinless steel that opens with fresh and lovely aromas of violets, purple fruits and crushed cherries.  In the mouth it’s juicy and ripe with loads of pretty fruit and a dark, earthy, streak.  Bright and clean through the end with a delicious note of coffee and cocoa dust emerging at the end.  Drink it with a little chill with pizza and pasta or warmer with anything off the grill.  Like I said:  Stupid delicious.

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013 Product #28636 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013

The Gmörk vineyard lies on loess and gravel soils in Austria’s excellent Wagram region.  There’s plenty of sunny warmth in this South-facing site, so the fruit ripens beautifully.  But the nearby Danube river channels cool air down from the Northwest, slowing the growing cycle and letting the grapes develop extra flavor and aroma while retaining fine freshness and acidity.  Anton has all the grapes harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness, even taking on the extra cost of making multiple passes through the vineyard when necessary.  It’s hard work and the kind of expense you rarely see in a Grüner intended to sell for under $20.

The 2013 Gmörk is the best release we’ve tasted so far (we’ve sold every vintage since 2008), delivering an extra notch of fresh fruit, a good helping of lime zest, and fine, bracing, minerality.  While it was a touch fleshier and less vivicous than the 2013, the Washington Post’s three-star review of the 2009 seems spot on:  “This delightful wine offers a fine example of what wine lovers call minerality: subtle flavors of lime zest with a hint of peach and nuances of talc and stone. It conjures an image of vine roots stretching through rocky soil, reaching for the essence of the earth.  Three Stars.”

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011

Here's our single best-selling Italian wine of the past five years - a fantastic value that tastes like it costs twice as much as it does. The wine is mainly (70%) Sangiovese and delivers plenty of that variety's juicy black cherry fruit. But, the 20% Merlot in the blend rounds out the mid-palate and keeps the wine soft while the secret ingredient -- 10% Sagrantino -- adds spice and complexity uncommon in Umbrian wines. Sure, it goes well with pizza and robust pasta sauces, but there's enough going on to handle game and hard, salty, cheeses and a soft enough finish just to drink at a party. Fantastic value.

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.
