La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 Product #29363 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish.

Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009 Product #29108 (In Stock)
Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009 Alvarez De Toledo Mencia Roble (Bierzo) 2009

Mencia and Bierzo – the region of Spain on the border of verdant Galicia and harsh, dry, Castilla Y Leon – seem made for each other.  In fact, the Mencia grape probably originated here as a mutation of much older, now lost, vines.  And, the Alvarez de Toledo family has about 300 years experience with growing and making wine in Bierzo, so it’s not entirely surprising they got this one right.  This is the kind of nicely fruity, medium-bodied, red that’s fun to drink all by itself and easy to pair with pretty  much anything you put on your weeknight table.  It’s a fine quaffer, but there’s more than enough complexity here if you feel like paying attention.

"Balsamic, leather, and black fruits are the principal notes struck by this suave effort that over-delivers in a big way. Like its older sibling, it can be enjoyed now but will have more to say in 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011 Product #29373 (In Stock)
Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011 Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011

Number 8 on Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2014!   The grape blend here is a good example of why folks find Portuguese wine intimidating:  Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Caladoc, Castelão, Pinot Noir, and Touriga Nacional are in there somewhere!  The winemaking is pretty straight ahead, with fermentation in tank and just a little time in barrel and bottle before release.  But there’s a nice touch of complexity to the plump, juicy, aromas and flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, and tangy plum fruit and accents of crushed violets and lavender.  At just 12.5% abv, you can enjoy this solo with a chill or pair it everything from fried chicken to grilled tuna or burgers.

"A dark colored, dense wine that is rich and firmly structured. Aged in wood, it holds flavors of plum and berry fruits balanced with a fresh acidity. This is a wine for aging, its structure a powerful statement. Drink from 2014.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Le Petit Balthazar Rose 2014 Product #29543 (In Stock)

This rose from France's Languedoc region is a tangy, refreshing treat! Made with 100% Cinsault, a grape usually reserved for blends, it has an appealing nose of fresh strawberries.  On the palate, tart, tangy flavors of cranberry and raspberry come through. At this price, you'll want to sip it on your back deck all summer long!

Terra Do Castelo Godello Ribeiro 2012 Product #27545 (In Stock)
Terra Do Castelo Godello Ribeiro 2012 Terra Do Castelo Godello Ribeiro 2012

Wines from this verdant corner of Northeastern Spain were shipped to England in the middle-ages, but the vineyards were virtually abandoned after phylloxera in the 1880s.  100 years later, Ribeiro began its resurgence, offering crisp, mineral-laced, wines from Albarino, Treixadura and, increasingly, Godello.  Like Ribeiro itself, the Godello grape was nearly extinct in the 1970s before growers rediscovered its ability to deliver ripe fruit, crisp acids, fine minerality, and a clear sense of place.

While the grape takes well to wood aging in warmer climates, our favorite examples are wines like this – crisp, clean, and super fresh whites made all in tank.  We love how Terra Do Castelo’s version delivers all of Godello’s and the region’s stony minerality with a big dose of ripe pineapple, tangerine, and lime zest fruit.  It’s a fantastic wine to keep on hand pairing with spring salads, shellfish, or even ham as well as for sipping by itself.  At these prices, it’s a wine to stock up on and enjoy this Spring, Summer, and Fall!

“This Godello is light, fruity and offers nice lime and apple aromas. It’s linear, minerally and has a true slate feel, then stony flavors of tangerine and ripe peach take over. A juicy, pure finish tops it off.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Papet Del Mas Cava Brut NV Product #27801 (In Stock)
Papet Del Mas Cava Brut NV Papet Del Mas Cava Brut NV

A very fine sparkling wine value, this Spanish Cava had its secondary fermentation in bottle and clearly benefits from the Champagne method treatment!  Creamy textured and full of pretty bubbles, it's soft and easy with peach and lemon fruit and a touch of yeasty/bread dough quality.  A bit of lemon rind at the end adds refreshment to this great party or back porch bottle of bubbly!

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 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.

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

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!
