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.

Vignobles De Balma CdR Villages Seguret Terrasse Pavee 2010 Vignobles De Balma CdR Villages Seguret Terrasse Pavee 2010

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

Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Product #28150 (In Stock)
Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013

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.

Villa Botanica Cabernet Syrah Pays d'Oc 2011 Villa Botanica Cabernet Syrah Pays d'Oc 2011

For everyone who wants rich Cabernet Sauvignon flavors and texture without California's elevated alcohols (and very elevated price tags!).  From 25 year-old, sustainably farmed, vines grown along the Canal du Midi in France's Languedoc region, not far from Carcassonne. The fruit achieved wonderful ripeness in 2011, with the Cabernet Sauvignon delivering blackcurrant, fresh herb, and spice notes and the 30% Syrah dark blackberry, blueberry, and smoke aromas and flavors. No oak here, but plenty of smoked mineral and earth complexity to go with he gushing blueberry/blackberry juicy on the soft, lush, finish. A great grilling, party, and sipping Cabernet with just the right touch of French flair!

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.

Volpetti Cesanese 2012 Product #27650 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2012 Volpetti Cesanese 2012

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before (while still pretty garishly packaged).  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Product #27674 (In Stock)
Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011

This little gem WAY over delivers for its modest price.  Winegrower/maker Federico Benegas Lynch is a master of getting perfectly ripe fruit from his old-vine vineyards and, with help from master consultant Michel Rolland, turning out honest wines of great depth and character.  Here you'll find a fun, fruity, wine with earthy blackberry, blueberry, spice and coffee aromas and flavors.  An iron ore minerality adds complexity and the round tannins and bright acids just the right support.  It's fruitier and not quite as complex as Frederico's Estate Malbec, but just perfect for parties or pairing with everyday meals.

Gouguenheim Malbec 2013 Gouguenheim Malbec 2013

A ripe, meaty, Malbec that will work at table or on it's own.  100% Malbec pleasure with almost no wood influence. Pretty aromas of black berries, spice, lavender and red licorice lead to smooth, rich, flavors of blackberry and blueberry and a lash of coffee and smoky spice.  An easy drinker that has more meaty heft going on than you'd expect for the price.  Bet this would sing with steak rubbed with coffee and ancho chile!

Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011 Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011

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.

A project of importer Eric Solomon and Ventoux's Frederic Chaudiere, this comes from 40-60 year-old Grenache growing in high-altitude vineyards named for a 400 year-old farmhouse.  Bursting with ripe, juicy, strawberry and cherry fruit with rich accents of damp earth and cracked black pepper.  It's full in texture and flavor, but with plenty of body but also a nice sappy freshness.  A bold bistro red to enjoy with or without food.

Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend  2012 Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend  2012

From Train's Jimmy Stafford, a rock solid value red for sipping and grilling.  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.  Jimmy and the boys suggest pairing with eggplant lasagna or  molten chocolate cake.  We were leaning to burgers and ribs, but who are we to argue with a rock star?

Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012 Product #28500 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012 Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012

A lot more serious fun than most Malbec in this price range, it's soft enough to sip and deep enough to love rich food.

"The 2012 Festivo Malbec is produced from their own grapes from Tunuyan in the Uco Valley planted at 1,100 meters altitude, fermented in inox and aged in vats with the lees from some of the other wines for about one year. Displaying a creamy nose with abundant notes of blueberries and flowers, it is very showy, with lots of volume in the palate, freshness, moderate acidity, and pure fruit juice. Very good and great value. 200,000 bottles produced. Drink now."Wine Advocate 87 points

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010 Product #28569 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010

If you know Negromaro from Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The dark 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.

“Good full ruby-red. Dark cherry and graphite aromas are lifted by an enticing spicy character. Supple, spicy and sweet, offering an uncanny combination of vibrancy, fat and density. Finishes suave and long, with fine, sweet tannins and very good lift.”International Wine Cellar 90 points

Our favorite release yet of this powerful Tempranillo from 35+ year-old vines.

"Primary dark berry and licorice aromas are perked up by a strong note of cracked pepper. Zesty blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air and pick up floral and spicecake nuances. Closes sweet, focused and long, with very good energy and slowly building tannins."International Wine Cellar 90 points
