Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #27006 (In Stock)
Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This is a big "bang for the buck" Cabernet from Chile that reminds you how Chile first established its global reputation for top quality Cab at rock-bottom prices.  Fruit for this wine grows near Chile’s Coastal Mountain range in the Colchagua Valley.  Daytime high temperatures can reach 98 degrees here, but cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean cool the fruit at night to preserve freshness and acidity.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of classic Cabernet fruit –  currant, plum, and blackberries.  It also display's Chile's trademark whiff of herbs and some appealing tobacco aromas, giving the wine more complexity than you’d expect at this price.  In the mouth, it’s juicy and satisfying, with an extra dose of black raspberry and currant fruit.  The juicy acids keep everything in balance and make this a flexible companion with a wide range of foods.

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2013 Product #28005 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2013 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2013

Our first 2013 rose is a beauty!  As soon as you see the Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rosé, you know you’re in for a treat.  It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine.  Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind.  In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, nicely round but still light and fresh.  The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip.  Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad.  “Berry” delicious!

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.

From Northern Spain's Ribeiro region comes this Godello from Terra do Castelo.  The aromas are clean, fresh and enticing, with hints of fresh-cut pineapple and herbs.  On the palate it's full of that same delicious pineapple fruit, but finishes clean, tart and mouthwatering.  For fresh fish, salads, and warm afternoons on the deck.

Prendas Vermentino Di Sardegna 2012 Product #27715 (In Stock)
Prendas Vermentino Di Sardegna 2012 Prendas Vermentino Di Sardegna 2012

From Italy's island of Sardinia, this classic Vermentino is both delicious and a screaming value!  Made and aged in tank with brief lees contact to add a little body, it shows off cut apple, lemon, melon and a whiff of orange blossom. Nicely bright and juicy, this has enough fruit to drink on its own but will shine with a seafood salad with fennel or ceviche with orange.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2011 Product #26807 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2011 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2011

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).

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)

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.

Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Product #27447 (In Stock)
Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011

The 2011 edition started out a bit closed and tight, but now it’s opened up to deliver complex, delicious, aromas and flavors of golden apple, ripe pear, lemon curd, and fennel.  The lemony fruit gets a hint of kumquat and salty sea breeze on the brisk, mouthwatering, finish.  Surprisingly rich-feeling in your mouth, especially given the less than 13% alcohol, this is a killer back porch sipper and better still with briny seafood or salty meats.  As Jancis Robinson said of the 2008, “one mouthful of this was enough to remind me of a lunch in Liguria high above the sparkling blue Mediterranean."

"BEST BUY! Made from a hard-to-find variety in California, this bright, beautifully aromatic wine expresses gorgeous scents of jasmine that follow through in flavor to the finish. Its layers of lime, apple and a generous level of minerality are perfectly executed and waiting for seafood."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

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

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.

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.

Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011 Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011

The fact that a wine comes from a famous entertainer isn't a particularly strong endorsement. But here the proof is in the pudding, as they say.  From Train's Jimmy Stafford and Concannon Vineyard, this is once again a rock solid value red for sipping and grilling.  Mainly Petite Sirah, it's ripe and fruit-forward with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit plus just a touch of plum pudding and spice.  Soft and wide open from first pour, this finishes with big, but very soft, tannins.  Great burger or sipping wine and a very nice value, too.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009 Product #26941 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009

Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri and “Best Value of the Year”!  The highest honor awarded by the Italian’s guide to Italian wine doesn’t often go to wines from Puligia, much less wines that sell for this price.  From vineyards around the little Pulgia town of Salice Salentino, this is intended to be 100% Negromaro – although the vineyard is old and 5-10% of the vines planted years ago were probably Malvasia Nero.  Ripe fruit is picked in early September, rushed to the winery, and fermented cool in stainless steel.  Two years aging in one and two year-old small barrels rounds off the edges without adding oak flavors.

If you know Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The black color tells you this is a ripe, deep, wine, and the aromas of dark black plum and cherry, warm licorice root, savory spice, and purple flowers reinforce that impression.  In the mouth, the flavors are bold, warming and ripe – blackberry, black cherry, hot earth, roasted meat, spice and cocoa powder – with plenty of the meaty, earthy, complexity that Salice Salentino is known for.  But, it’s the purity, clarity, and wonderful freshness of flavor and texture that take this to another level.  Ripe, not roasted.  Powerful, not rustic.  Absolutely delicious with grilled sausages, roasted meats, or just nuts and olives, at a value price hard to resist.

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2010 Product #26966 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2010 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2010

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.

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.
