Andre Brunel Grenache VDP 2012 Product #29394 (In Stock)
Andre Brunel Grenache VDP 2012 Andre Brunel Grenache VDP 2012

Here’s a big mouthful of easy-to-love Rhone red wine at a very attractive price. Brunel purchases Grenache (90%) and Carignan from vineyards to the North of Orange (mostly Cotes du Rhone, some outside the region).  The grapes are fully destemmed and raised in tank to let all of the juicy, ripe, fruit shine through.  Classic Rhone red aromas of ripe strawberries and dark raspberries jump from the glass and lead to soft, wide-open, flavors of red raspberry, cherry, and a touch of “garigue” – the resinous note similar to the wild rosemary and thyme that grow here.  Clean and juicy on the fruit-filled finish, this is easy to enjoy solo and will handle a wide range of foods at table.  Just delicious and pretty irresistible at the price!

Bodegas Filon Real Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Product #29816 (In Stock)
Bodegas Filon Real Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Bodegas Filon Real Garnacha Calatayud 2012

Another in a long line of stunning Spanish values from remote Calatayud, south of Rioja and east of Ribera del Duero.  At 2,500 feet altitude, these 50 year-old Garnacha vines grow slowly and give small crops of ripe, concentrated fruit.  Old-school, natural, farming gets a touch of modern magic in the winery as the powerful young wine ages 6 months in French oak for polish and an extra dose of spice.  It’s big, rich, and pumps out loads of dark, spicy, raspberry fruit from front to back before a juicy finish provides lift and refreshment.  As Josh Reynolds says, this “delivers incredible value.”

"All garnacha, from vines that were reportedly planted over 50 years ago. Aged in French oak for six months.  Saturated ruby. Fresh red berries, allspice and rose on the nose, with a lively mineral nuance adding vibrancy and lift. Offers intense fresh raspberry and spicecake flavors, along with notes of white pepper, candied flowers and smoky minerals. Supple and seamless and but nicely focused too, finishing with strong thrust and silky tannins that add gentle grip. Delivers incredible value, with the sort of finesse that I seldom find in any wine priced under $30, much less $20."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2013 Product #29251 (In Stock)
Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2013 Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2013

A great example of New World Grenache that delivers big, ripe, fruit flavors without getting candied or flat.

"Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas show good energy and focus. Energetic red fruit flavors gain sweetness with air, picking up a suave floral quality. Lively, appealingly pinot-like grenache with very good finishing lift and smooth, harmonious tannins arriving late."International Wine Cellar 90 points
