Casa De Santar Dao Tinto 2010 Product #29374 (In Stock)
Casa De Santar Dao Tinto 2010 Casa De Santar Dao Tinto 2010

“Stylish” and “refined” are some of the last words I’d have expected to attribute to a fine value Portuguese red, but they were the first words we thought of tasting this beauty.  It’s a blend of the Dao’s three main grapes – Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz – harvested by hand, fermented cool, and given just a short stay in American oak.  It’s mouth-coating and glass-staining, with earthy dark red fruit accented by Rhone-like notes of herb, licorice, and olive.  Sweet and dense on the palate and then finishing sweet and long with fine and refined tannins.  A ton of wine for the money.

“Dark and brooding at first, this develops into a cherry-rich red with floral scents. A pretty Dão and a super value.” Wine & Spirits 90 points

"A refined and well-crafted red, with concentrated flavors of dried cherry, red raspberry and currant, supported by fleshy, medium-grained tannins. Delivers a long finish of tar, spice and smoke. Drink now through 2020." Wine Spectator 90 points

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.

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.

Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011 Product #28190 (In Stock)
Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011 Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011

You may never have heard of Ruche, but if you like aromatic grapes like Pinot Noir, and are searching for something that will sing with everything from Indian food to pizza, you've found your new best friend.  A traditional grape from Italy's Piedmont region, this is a soft, easygoing red with intriguing aromas of cherry, plum, lavendar, and floral notes.  Delicious and unique.

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011 Product #28669 (In Stock)
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.

Volpetti Cesanese 2013 Product #28784 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2013 Volpetti Cesanese 2013

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!

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2011 Product #29454 (In Stock)

Another fine vintage for this deep South Italian red that is always robust, but never cooked or heavy. 100% Negromaro done all in tank for freshness.

"Firm and savory, this opens with aromas of ripe berry, clove and graphite. On the palate, notes of clove and black pepper add depth to ripe Morello cherry and crushed raspberry flavors. Supple tannins offer support."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

Villa Jolanda Prosecco Product #22192 (In Stock)
Villa Jolanda Prosecco Villa Jolanda Prosecco

Villa Jolanda Prosecco is made from 100% Prosecco grapes grown in the hills north of Treviso.  Grapes are hand-harvested, chilled in the vineyard, and given a low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit.  The wine features lovely aromas of white flowers, orchard fruits, and a touch of mineral.  Lightly sparkling with very pretty, small, bubbles, the wine is full of flavor - peach, ripe apple, lemon zest, and a nice mineral streak.  Fruity and crisp, the wine finishes with a touch of mineral and yellow apple.  A fantastic wine to keep on hand for everyday celebrations or to stock up on for Holiday parties.  Delicious!

Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml Product #27794 (In Stock)
Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml

Dolin Vermouth's are pretty much the same today as they were when first introduced in 1821.  Made from white wines and fresh and dried herbs and botanicals from Chambery, they are all complex, fresh, and just as delicious on their own as they are in a complex cocktail.

The dry style vermouth shows a pure, almost sweet-smelling, nose of white wine, herbs and wormwood.  In the mouth it's pure, herbal, and very clean with just enough body and ripe fruit to impart roundness.  Finishes clean, complex, and fresh with no bitterness.  This would be a fine match with fresh pesto!

Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Product #28480 (In Stock)
Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.

Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012 Product #27300 (In Stock)
Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012 Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012

Maybe it’s the great 2012 vintage (a winner in pretty much all of Europe), or perhaps it’s a little more rigorous vineyard work or a touch more sophistication in the blend.  Or, it could just be that Xavier left Muscat out of the blend this year.  Whatever the cause, this is far and away my favorite release of this sophisticated but crowd-pleasing white ever.

Xavier makes this from Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay and a dash of Sauvignon Blanc grown in the rocky, hard-to-work, vineyards of Terra Alta.  Fermented cool in tank and bottled without ever touching a barrel, it delivers just the right balance of luscious nectarine and tangy pineapple fruit with hints of lemon grass and lime pith.  Round, generous, and mouthfilling, the real excitement here is on the back palate and finish where a burst of selzer, chalk, and briny mineral emerges under the mouthwatering acidity.  A refreshing white you’ll love sipping on the back deck with nibbles and enjoy even more with shellfish, sausage, or paella.  Just a winner all around.

Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Product #27649 (In Stock)
Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012

This is a spectacular rendition of Piemonte's Gignolino, a wine of robust and fresh aromas and flavors and smooth as silk finish.  The translucent cherry red color is a showstopper, but the bold aromas of tangy strawberry, crunchy black cherry, citrus peel and a touch of tar are even better.  Round and mouthwateringly bright, the wine finishes juicy and long with very soft, fine, tannins.  Pure, unadulterated, fun.

Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012 Product #28398 (In Stock)
Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012 Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012

Schiava has historically been the workhorse grape of Alto Adige, making either a light, tart, rustic reddish wine on its own or blended with more aromatic Pinot Noir and robust Lagrein for a heartier red.  But when it's grown carefully - in this case, biodynamically - and with low yields and treated with respect in the winery, Schiava can be absolutely delicious!

The ripeness of the warm 2012 harvest shows here in the dark (for Schiava, anyway) lavender color that still remains very clear and transparent and pretty in the glass.  The aromas and flavors feature tangy black cherry, loamy earth, licorice root, and a whiff of smoke (from the grape, not oak).  It's light and transparent on the palate with a touch of cherry pit, toasted almond, and almost citrusy acidity on the mouthwatering finish. Sort of like Chinon meets Beaujolais or like Grignolino with less tannin, but definitely delicious with a light chill and with pretty much any food you can imagine - certainly pasta, but try it with fried chicken, too!

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Product #28953 (In Stock)
Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Vajra Langhe Rosso 2011 Vajra Langhe Rosso 2011

One of our favorite Barolo estates makes this blend of Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera with tiny bits of Albarossa, Freisa and Pinot Noir just for fun!  And, "fun" is the operative word here, in a wine that's bursting with strawberry, red plum, and juicy raspberry fruit.  Notes of black pepper and Asian spice add some complexity and there's just enough polished Nebbiolo tannin to give it shape.  Fantastic purity, zesty acidity, and plenty of luscious fruit make this pretty sophisticated, but mainly just delicious and, well, fun!

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2013 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2013

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, vinified with a pleasant touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate."  As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013 Betes Curieuses Muscadet Sevre Et Maine La Perdrix 2013

Certified Organic Grapes.  Betes Curieusses is a partnership of two Jeremies - Huchet and Mourat - who are making some of the most exciting terroir-driven Muscadet we've ever seen.  This wine comes from vineyards laced with decomposed granite over sand, warm soils that give remarkable ripeness.  It's a round, fruit-filled, Muscadet - almost creamy in texture - with a touch of peach to complement the salty mineral and lime zest.  Brisk, bracing, and utterly delicious.

The customer favorite X Red is no more, but this is a terrific replacement – and could just become your go-to party/house red.  A wacky blend of California Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Grenache that packs a big flavor punch. It's a boldly flavored red that's loaded with candied strawberry and red cherry fruit, a lash of baking spice, and a juicy, tangy, finish.  Great wine for anything grilled or just to enjoy at a party.

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 Product #28737 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010

Another great release from one of the Rhone's most important estates.

"Guigal’s Cotes du Rhone. I re-tasted the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which is still in foudre. This cuvee is typically a blend of 50% Syrah and the rest Grenache and perhaps some Mourvedre. Guigal is known throughout the Rhone Valley for paying the highest price for generic Cotes du Rhone, and that in large part explains the quality of this wine year in and year out. It enjoys an extended upbringing in foudre and stainless steel tanks and is always a dense ruby/purple-colored wine with lots of blue and black fruits intermixed with notions of kirsch, licorice, lavender and spice. Supple and surprisingly intense, this delicious effort can age for 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 89 points

"Offers a roasted feel, with dark bramble, plum and tobacco notes accented by hints of pastis and apple wood, leading to a ganache- and charcoal-infused finish. Distinctive in feel, revealing a prominent yet integrated woodsy element." Wine Spectator 89 points

Dom Gres St Vincent Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2013 Product #29237 (In Stock)

From a unique, organic co-op in the Rhone valley, this delicious, Grenache-based blend delivers satisfying weight and earthiness but stays light on its feet. Unlike many co-ops that blend growers' fruit into one wine, here each makes their own. Though the blend is dominated by Grenache, the Syrah takes center stage on the nose, with classic notes of liquorice, black fruits, and a wonderful whiff of violets. In the mouth luscious ripe black raspberry and blackberry dance with notes of coffee, olive, and garrigue.  The wine is ripe and full of fruit, but also vibrant and fresh from beginning to end.  Zingy, almost bubbling, fruit acids and fine tannins make this refreshing and a great wine for table.  Ripe, vivid, pure.
