Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays d' Oc 2014 Product #30508 (In Stock)
Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays d' Oc 2014 Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays d' Oc 2014

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  Fun stuff and great value!

Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015 Product #30931 (In Stock)
Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015 Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015

As soon as we tasted the 2015 Penya, we knew:  this is going to be a “no-brainer” favorite value red of the year! It’s loaded with generous red and blue fruit – think raspberry, blueberry, blackberry – plus a nice whiff of sweet berry blossom and violet.  There’s enough heft and tannin here to give the wine a satisfying texture and make it a great companion for any summer food. Or give it a light chill and you’ll love it’s thirst-quenching joy as you twist-off the top and pour it on the deck while the grill heats up and the sun goes down.

“The vibrant purple-colored 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes was bottled in January and raised all in concrete tanks. Made from 52% Grenache, 36% Carignan and 12% Syrah, it offers jammy, forward notes of blackberries, raspberries and flowers in a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, fruity personality. It’s a terrific value and geared for near-term drinking.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2015 Product #30795 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015

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.  A tad more rich and round in the warm 2015 harvest, but still a refreshingly great value!

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Product #30464 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014

We confess to being huge fans of Kellerei Kaltern, the outstanding cooperative winery perched in the foothills of the Dolomites just outside Balzano, Italy.  The Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco from the hills sloping down to Lake Kaltern are mainstays here, but it's the lake-side reds that are most special to us.

Both the very popular Schiava and gutsier Lagrein bottlings rely on older vines, so the winery created this blend to feature younger vines (up to 30 years) of both.  The light-colored Schiava give this wonderful aromas and flavors of cherry, lilac, and rose petal while the more powerful Lagrein adds black raspberry, plum, and licorice notes.  Light - just 12.5% abv - but packs a big flavor punch.  Try it cool with a spread of cheese and cured meat and we think you'll be convinced!

Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2014 Product #30639 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2014 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2014

For years you’ve loved the ‘little’ Bordeaux that Ch La Roche St Jean have been pumping out – proving that there’s much more to Bordeaux than eye-wateringly expensive reds that need to be cellared for decades. This large region in Southwest France makes oceans of wine, most of it at very reasonable prices like the wines from Ch La Roche St Jean.  This is a classic blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon done without oak, making it a lighter take on traditional Bordeaux flavors.

The aromas are of ripe plums and blackberries, with just a hint of something floral or powdery. A little whiff of cedar reminds you you’re smelling Bordeaux varieties from their homeland and not warmer climes like California or Argentina. There’s a little Bing cherry in there, too. On the palate, that cherry flavor really carries through, and the midpalate is surprisingly rich with lovely, ripe plum flavors – a lot of wine for the money! A little chalky tannin cleans up the finish.

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Product #28783 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012

We’re not sure why this very classic red Bordeaux isn’t a lot more expensive.  Unlike most “value” Bordeaux, it’s based the region’s best, most aristocratic grape, Cabernet Sauvignon.  The one-third Merlot adds volume and plumpness and the time part of the wine spends in new French oak barrels – a rarity in value Bordeaux – gives polish, spice, and added complexity.

The aromas here scream "Bordeaux" with dark black currant, milk chocolate, cedar and tobacco notes and chocolate covered cherries all intermingling nicely.  The aromas suggest a rich, luscious, wine and that’s just what you’ll find when you taste it, too.  Red and black currant and tangy cherry fruit flavors make up the wine’s core with bitter chocolate (unlike the milkier chocolate on the nose), cocoa powder accents, cedar and crushed herb accents lending complexity and interest.  Even though the texture is rich and full, the wine retains Bordeaux’s classic appetizing dryness and aristocratic restraint, with fine, crisp, tannins lying underneath the lingering savory soy and smoke flavors.  Performs like a $20 wine, which makes this price even more attractive!

Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011 Product #29191 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011 Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2011 is yet another fine Toro Tempranillo.  The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), hand harvested from vines 30+ years-old. There’s plenty of ripe Temparnillo fruit here – cherry, blackberry and plum – and very nice doses of wood spice and the grape’s exotic sandalwood fragrance.  But cool nights on the vine and careful treatment in the winery leave a bright, refreshing, acidity in place as well and the smooth, refined, tannins don’t get in the way of solo sipping pleasure.  A lot of wine for a very  modest price.

"Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and roasted coffee on the nose, with attractive floral and spicecake notes. Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering broad cherry and cassis flavors and a hint of licorice. A suave, gently sweet and open-knit wine, with a spicy element emerging on the long, gently tannic finish."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec Tupungato 2014 Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec Tupungato 2014

Following hard on the 93 and 92 point Wine Advocate ratings for the past two vintages, this juicy, un-oaked, Malbec is better than ever in 2014.  Loads of ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit with accents of fresh flowers, baking spice, and damp earth.  One notch richer and more smooth than the 2013, this makes for great solo sipping and sings with robust foods (even pizza!).

Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz 2012 Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz 2012

"Smoky cherry and blackcurrant aromas are sharpened and lifted by a peppery quality and a hint of candied flowers. Supple and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of olive that becomes stronger with air. Finishes with echoing blue fruit and olive notes, good length and just a whisper of tannins."  Vinous (Reynolds)  88 points

Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014 Product #29706 (In Stock)
Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014 Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014

The Recorba Ribera del Duero Tinto is an example of what happens when you get Tempranillo all the way ripe and then let it show it’s colors without any wood at all.  Big aromas and flavors of red plum, black cherry and raspberry take center stage with accents of natural spice, warm stones, and a touch of exotic sandalwood.  A huge “bang for the buck” Tempranillo to enjoy by itself or with pretty much anything you’d put on the grill.

Not to serious package for this not too serious (but very delicious!) no-oak Tempranillo.  Generous aromas of cherry, black raspberry and leather with a hint of licorice.  Then bold, rich, flavors of black plum and chocolate with juicy floral and licorice accents that gain strength on the finish.  Plenty of heft and firm, focused, tannins make this a great burger/chop choice but fun to just sip, too.

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2014 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2014

One of the Rhone's most consistent values, Segries Cotes du Rhone is a shining success in 2014.  Made from declassified Lirac grapes, it's a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% each Cinsault and Carignan done almost entirely in tank.  Aromas and flavors of black berries, chocolate covered cherry, and meaty notes of "garrigue" - the blend of scrub pine, thyme, lavender, juniper and rosemary that provide the unique scent of Provnencal hills and vineyards. The ripe fruit cloaks the ripe, velvety, tannins, making this as much fun to drink on its own as it is to put out on the dinner table.

From a small Barbaresco producer, this fresh and fruity Barbera delivers a lot more complexity and satisfaction than it's humble price suggests.  Fresh and juicy Bing/black cherry fruit roll across your tongue with accents of fresh leather and aged Balsamic.  Long on the palate and mouthwatering finish where very light tannin gives a little extra support.  A pretty sophisticated wine for the price - great with pizza, pasta, or even on its own.

Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2013 is how many top-notch "little" wines get made.  Here you'll find generous aromas of cherry, cranberry and mint leading to flavors of maraschino cherry, plum, and red berry with just a hint of spice and orange blossom. The light, fresh, texture, soft tannins, and juicy acids make this a delicious quaffer, although there's enough support for it to work with salmon or pork.  Outstanding value in balanced, easygoing, Pinot Noir.

Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Product #30699 (In Stock)
Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Odoardi Savuto Red 2013

A paradox - how can such a fresh, vibrant, red come from the brutally hot Southern Italian DOC of Savuto in Calabria?  Elevation (Odoardi's vineyards are at up to 2,000 feet) helps, as does a big dose (45%) of Gaglioppo, the soft and bright grape called Arvino locally.  Gaglioppo gives this bright cherry/berry fruit and a soft, round, juicy mid-palate while Aglianico (25%) adds structure and Magliocco Caniino, Greco Nero, and Nerello Cappuccino perfume and complexity.  A great pizza, sausage, pasta, grilled food red, especially with a chill.

Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Product #30755 (In Stock)
Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014

The Viranel family has made wine on the stony soils of Saint-Chinian, in the very heart of the Languedoc's sunny, hot, dry vineyard, since 1551.  Today a new generation is making wines with traditional Languedoc warmth and richness and just a touch of modern innovation.  Here, brothers Amaud and Nicolas combine Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and the much maligned Alicante Bouschet to make a fresh, fun, south of France treat!

Cabernet and Syrah are found across Languedoc and rate as "improving" varieties, while Alicante thought of as the grape that needs improving!  It's a red-fleshed berry that gives lots of color and first became popular as a way to darken over-cropped Grenache/Carignan blends.  But from old vines (these were planted in 1939) and at low yields, it adds a burst of tobacco-like complexity to the big, lush, red and black fruit aromas and flavors here.  Juicy and a touch decadent (in a good way!), this no-oak red will shine with anything off the grill (although the winery's suggestion of rabbit with turnip or pigeon with raisins sounds good, too!).

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Product #30794 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013

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.
