Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Product #27594 (In Stock)
Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006 Ch Pericou Bordeaux Superieur 2006

Here's a 2006 Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon (mainly Merlot) Right Bank Bordeaux that’s perfectly ripe at just 13% and perfectly mellowed from time in barrel and cellar. On first pour, both the color and aromas are still show very youthful, with primary scents of fresh red currant and black raspberry accented by notes of tobacco leaf, cocoa, and spice. With a little air, the aromas get darker and richer, showing off this wine's beautiful ripeness.

Seven years time has softened the palate to a silky smooth texture and allowed the pretty berry and currant fruit to come forward.  You're starting to find notes of age here as earthy tobacco, fresh mushroom, and cedar peak out, but the overall thrust is still behind the juicy, fresh, fruit.  Very light, sliky, tannins come up at the end to provide classic Bordeaux structure for food – especially that classic pairing of maturing Bordeaux and lamb!  You can enjoy this now while dinner is in the oven and will be delighted to keep on quaffing it until all the clean-up is done.  Fresh, fruity, delicious, and attractively packaged in an authentic Bordeaux wood case – a fantastic value!

Ch La Roche St. Jean Rose 2013 Ch La Roche St. Jean Rose 2013

The folks who make our best value white and red Bordeaux turned out a very satisfying pink wine in 2013!  It's about 70% Merlot with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, all bled off the fermenting red wine and aged in tank. Bright strawberry and cherry fruit show on the nose and palate with a dash of crushed fresh herb and just a touch of redcurrant and juicy cherry/berry acidity.  Fresh and easy drinking!

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).

Ixeia Tinto Somontano 2012 Product #28124 (In Stock)
Ixeia Tinto Somontano 2012 Ixeia Tinto Somontano 2012

From the foothills of the Pyrenees on the edge of the Basque country comes this utterly unexpected (and stupidly delicious) Cabernet, Merlot, and Tempranillo blend.  Grown on limestone soil, the wine opens with aromas of dark, dusty slate balanced with ripe plums and blackberries.  No oak to speak of here, just clean, ripe flavors of juicy berries, and bright acidity to clean it all up.  What's really surprising here for a wine at this super affordable price is that sophisticated, slaty minerality, that carries through to the finish.  A delicious value!

As warm weather approaches, this is the perfect red to have on hand for a cookout or outdoor party.  There's plenty of dark, ripe fruit and heft, but no heavy oak to overwhelm lighter dishes.  Wines like this are why we keep returning to Spain again and again for great red wine values!

What a steal in rich, delicious, and ready to enjoy Bordeaux from the 2009 vintage! Mainly Merlot plus 20% or so Cabernet Franc, this is dark, chocolatey and plush.

"This is liberally toasty up front, with a mocha edge giving way to notes of espresso and spice, yet pure red currant, black cherry and plum fruit emerges from behind, with a roasted cedar edge inlaid on the finish."Wine Spectator 88 points

Ch La Rame Bordeaux Blanc 2012 Ch La Rame Bordeaux Blanc 2012

You'll be hearing how 2012 is a GREAT white Bordeaux vintage, and this beauty makes the case nicely.  Mostly (95%) Sauvignon Blanc with just 5% Semillon, it's zesty and a little Touraine-like.  Fresh cut grass, citrus rind, and white grapefruit aromas take center stage here. While it's a touch more round than the 2011, it's still focused and refreshing and a great match for fresh fish or goat cheeses.

La Fleur D'or Sauternes 2010  375ml La Fleur D'or Sauternes 2010  375ml

Classic Sauternes flavors that won't break the bank!  The aromas feature candied pineapple and lemon with a hint of creme caramel.  Starts off bright and almost tangy before the sweet honey, candied fruit, and creme brulee flavors expand to coat your palate.  Bright acidity freshens things at the end and lead to a long, gently sweet, finish.

Ch La Cardonne Medoc 2009 Ch La Cardonne Medoc 2009

Nicely in the drinking window now with miles to go in cellar  yet.

"This is a major sleeper of the vintage and the best wine I have ever tasted from La Cardonne, which is in the northern end of the Medoc, near the town of Blaignan. A blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, this 2009 offers up notes of tobacco leaf, cassis, and loamy soil with underbrush nuances. With excellent texture, impressive purity, and medium to full body, this is a rich, over-achieving cru bourgeois to drink over the next decade."Wine Advocate 88 points

The second wine of Tour Haut-Caussan is a beauty in 2010.  It's a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot made in tank and barrel that shows off the perfect ripeness and silky texture of the great 2010 harvest.  Ripe currant and cherry fruit with accents of spice and a touch of dried tobacco.  Bright and juicy on the palate with silky tannins and a nicely lingering dose of tangy fruit.  Right down the middle and fine value.

Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2009 Product #27297 (In Stock)
Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2009 Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2009

Plenty of ripeness from this Washington State Bordeaux blend, but also a sense of freshness and clarity to the fruit and spice flavors to go along with overt oak barrel notes.  Great for beef or lamb on the grill.

"Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and syrah. Bright red-ruby. Briary dark raspberry, smoke and underbrush on the nose, with a subtle floral quality as well as some superripe suggestions. Fat, sweet and quite ripe on the palate, but a bit sullen and youthfully medicinal today. Has the stuffing to support its serious tannins, but nonetheless shows a slight green edge on the back."International Wine Cellar 89 points

Ch Lyonnat Lussac-St. Emilion 2009 Ch Lyonnat Lussac-St. Emilion 2009

Lovely wine and great value.

"Very traditional-old-style Bordeaux from the Milhade family, who make the well-known generic Bordeaux that can live for 20+ years, Recougne. The 2009 Lyonnat, from the satellite appellation of Lussac St.-Emilion, is a blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of cedar wood, roasted herbs, loamy earth and soil undertones in addition to abundant black cherry and black currant fruit jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, earthy style of wine that saturates the palate and should drink well for up to a decade."Wine Advocate 88 points

Great vintages - like 2009 - deliver great wines up and down the price ladder.  And that's the story here with this iconic Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois.  Sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) delivers lively aromas of plum, black cherry, and smoky herb and flavors of ripe currant, cedar, and spice.  Fine acids and soft tannins keep this refreshing and make it equally delicious at table or just to sip.  Outstanding value.

Very fine value in cellar worthy (but already delicious) Bordeaux!

"A brilliant sleeper of the vintage from this property, which often provides consumers with a value-priced wine that performs like a classified growth, the 2010 is an equal-part blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the northern village of Blaignan. The 2010 comes across like a St. Estephe. Deep ruby/purple, with notes of charcoal/burning embers in addition to black currants, licorice, truffle and graphite, it is full-bodied, rich, authoritative and has light to moderate tannins. It should drink well for 10-12+ years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Ch Malmaison Moulis En Medoc 2009 Ch Malmaison Moulis En Medoc 2009

Another great performance for this two-time Wine Spectator Top 100 estate in Moulis-en-Medoc, on the Left Bank just north of Margaux.  Much richer, riper, and softer than the 2005 and 2006 we featured in the past, this is bursting with blackberry and black currant fruit, cedar, tobacco, fresh herb and more.  A coffee/mocha note starts in the middle and expands on the plush, lingering, finish.  Great value in all-around Bordeaux to drink or hold.

Hedges Red Mountain Red 2011 Hedges Red Mountain Red 2011

A simply magnificent bottle of Washington State red wine that shows off the quality of the Columbia Valley's best vineyards and the magic of blending grapes and sites.  In 2011, the Red Mountain blend is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 16% Syrah, 4% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc, all aged in a mixture of new and used French, American and Hungarian oak.  Wonderfully ripe aromas of cassis, cherry, plum, smoke and spice lead to precise, nicely delineated, flavors of dark red fruits, toast, cut flowers, meat, and more.  Biodynamically grown and perfectly ripe at 13.5% abv (vs. 14.5+% for most other reds of this quality from Washington), it's fascinating now and even better with a little time in cellar.  Bravo!

A long-time favorite red Bordeaux is even better in the ripe-but-elegant 2012 harvest - and in a 3.0 liter box!  A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2012 delivers ripe currant and cherry fruit with accents of crushed dried herb, cedar, chocolate and spice.  Medium-bodied with good acidity and light tannin, this will drink well for 3 months after opening - if it lasts that long!

La Chapelle De Calon St Estephe 2010 La Chapelle De Calon St Estephe 2010

From the estate that also brings you the wonderful and long-lived Château Calon-Ségur. The first wine is always tannic and structured, and while there's some of that here, too, the overall impact is softer, lusher, and more approachable.  65% Cabernet, 20% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc, generous aromas of black currant, chocolate, and spice are followed on the palate where notes of cedar and tobacco add interest.  Decant for an hour now or cellar for a decade.

Xavier Milhade purchased this estate in 1996 and has brought quality up and up since then.  A very fine 2010 that will show now with decanting (but be best from 2016).

"Very fresh, showing enticing plum, currant and boysenberry fruit, with lots of mouthwatering minerality and a long, spice-filled finish. Dense but pure. A suave wine in the making."Wine Spectator 91-94 points

This lovely 2009 Margaux value is from a densely planted vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (3%).  The wine ages 18 months in new and used French oak for spice and extra perfume. Very aromatic with candied red fruit and currant, a touch of tobacco, and Christmas spice.  The ripe, plush, fruit flavors are mouthfilling with accents of incense, fresh flowers, and smoky spice.  The fruit cloaks the tannin, making this delicious now and able to grow in cellar for a decade.  Superb value.

Not sure what "Super" descriptor to use for this Bordeaux-based blend (Merlot and Cabernet Franc, mainly) from Alto Adige ("Super Alto Adige"?  No).  But it's one of the most compelling, captivating, and utterly delicious wines for lean steak or lamb loin we've got right now.  Pinot-weight but loaded with lush currant, chocolate, spice and fresh herb aromas and flavors with cassis and coffee on the finish.  Deeply flavored, but still vibrant, this is just about the perfect compromise between folks who love Napa Cab and Right Bank Bordeaux. Smoooooth and delicious.
