Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010 Product #27542 (In Stock)
Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010 Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2010

A brilliant value in sophisticated, 100% Tempranillo Rioja, hand harvested and aged in traditional American Oak.  A bit shockingly for a wine at this price point, this is built to age 5-8 years but is delicious now with 30 minutes or so in decanter.

"Vivid ruby. Ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth. Pliant and seamless in texture, with good heft and back-end energy. Finishes smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing shape and grip. Still on the young side but this wine drinks very well with an hour or so of decanting; it's an excellent value for Rioja."International Wine Cellar 90 points

"Displays oodles of white chocolate, spicy oak, black cherry jam and strawberries in a fruit-forward, medium-bodied but luscious and authoritative style. This is a silky-textured, full-flavored wine to drink over the next several years." Wine Advocate 89 points

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Product #27994 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2010 HALF BOTTLE

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

"As for the red wines, first and foremost is 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

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

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.

Mevushal  Just a rock-solid take on one of Italy’s most versatile and fun to drink varietals.  The key themes here are “cherry” – ripe cherries on the nose, cherry confit flavors, even a dark black cherry color – and “spice”, a classic feature of Montepulciano grapes.  It’s medium-bodied, forward, and ready to drink now with lamb, brisket, and more.

Lucignano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2010 Lucignano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2010

Always solid, this is the best vintage yet for this Chianti producer located up near Florence.  It's a round, black-fruited, wine loaded with soft black cherry and plum flavors and just the right touch of earthy spice.  Soft and round from beginning to end, this is a great wine for burgers or just to sip on its own. A nice peek at the amazing quality from Chianti in 2010!

Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2010 Product #27135 (In Stock)
Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2010 Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2010

We’ve said it before, and it still applies here:  If you don’t love this robust, poised, and oh-so-flavorful red, then perhaps Cotes du Rhone just isn’t for you.  Philippe makes a few different tanks of this blend of Grenache, Carignon, Syrah, Counoise and Cinsault, and then importer Olivier Daubresse chooses the very best for us. 

This year’s release shows off all the character and quality of the outstanding 2010 Rhone vintage. Intense aromas of inky crushed black raspberry, blackberry, cassis, and black licorice get extra complexity from notes of earthy lavender, violet and chocolate.  The palate is medium-bodied, focused, and fully flavored with layers of squid ink, tangy raspberry, black cherry, and tary, licorice-like, accents. The flavors expand with more blue/black fruit, fresh herb, and cracked black pepper in the back, lingering over fine mineral and sweet tannin on the finish.  This will age beautifully for 5+ years, but I don’t know you’d resist drinking it tonight.

La Formica Valpolicella Superiore 2010 Product #27212 (In Stock)
La Formica Valpolicella Superiore 2010 La Formica Valpolicella Superiore 2010

Like most modern Valpolicella, Corvina makes up the backbone of this bright, fresh, wine with dashes of other traditional grapes – Rondinella and Oseleta – for spice.  But, nearly 40% of the wine is Corvinone, a grape long thought to be just a clone of Corvina.  Here, it adds a unique, captivating, herbal note that takes Corvina’s crunch red fruits to a whole new level!

After hand harvesting, all of the Valpolicella grapes are lightly air dried to concentrate their flavors, and then fermented and aged all in tank.  On the nose, plenty of Valpolicella’s classic red fruit and floral aromas but with an extra kick of fresh herb and leafy tobacco.  Bold, ripe, strawberry and sweet cherry fruit takes center stage in your mouth with notes of spice, garrigue, and pipe tobacco adding complexity and interest.  The fruit flavors are fresh and crunchy but the texture round and easy to enjoy, with notes of tangy cherry, pomegranate and herb on the mouthwatering finish.  Give it a chill and it will quench your thirst on a hot afternoon, but it will be even better with cured or grilled meats!

O Fournier Ribera Del Duero 2010 Product #27187 (In Stock)
O Fournier Ribera Del Duero 2010 O Fournier Ribera Del Duero 2010

Fine value in easy-drinking, juicy, Tempranillo.

"The 2010 Urban Ribera is from younger Tinta del Pais vines in Berlangas and Roa-Burgos that sees three months in French oak barrels. It has an understated bouquet of raspberry leaf and wild hedgerow with touches of briary. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp, taut tannins and a very vibrant fresh finish with juicy raspberry and cranberry notes on the aftertaste. Punchy and lively, this is brimming over with flavor at a great price. Drink now-2015."Wine Advocate 89 points

Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010 Product #27327 (In Stock)
Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010 Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010

This Sangiovese from the fairly new Tuscan DOC of Montecucco waaay over-delivers for it's modest price. Lush aromas of dark cherry fruit and leather carry through to the sexy palate, which bursts with tangy ripe fruit dusted with fresh herb. There's lots of richness here, but also great energy from beginning to end where a hit of bitter chocolate and herb linger nicely.  A whole lot of wine for the money.

X Winery Big Gun Red 2010 X Winery Big Gun Red 2010

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 Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Malbec 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.  There's a pleasing touch of Cabernet Franc's herbal note in the middle that gets stronger on the end.  Great wine for anything grilled or just to enjoy at a party.

Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010 Product #27660 (In Stock)
Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010 Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010

From one of the oldest estates in Portugal's Douro valley and still family owned. Their white wine is made from the local grape varieties of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio and Rabigato. Crystal clear in color, this is wonderfully aromatic with notes of citrus, passion fruit, melon and fresh rainwater with a touch of jasmine.  The flavors follow in this richly textured, but terrifically refreshing, white that leaves ample citrus acidity and saline mineral notes on the mouthwatering, fresh, finish.  Terrific wine.

Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010 Product #27357 (In Stock)
Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010 Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010

For this last few vintages, Oddero’s classy Barbera d’Alba has been on a hot streak.  The 2007 made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list and the 2009 (the last release reviewed), was a rock-solid 90 pointer that became a huge Chain Bridge Cellars customer favorite.  Given how different the 2009 and 2010 vintages were, it’s a bit surprising how similar the just arrived 2010 is to those previous great releases.

Once again, this is an honest, fresh, take on one of Italy’s most versatile food wines.  Aromas of bright cherry, smoke, and a touch of wood spice lead to juicy flavors of red fruit, fresh cut flowers, and earthy spice.  Tangy sour cherry acidity gives the flavors a nice lift and makes your mouth water on the long finish with just the right dash of tannin at the end.  The kind of red that makes almost any Italian food better, but will be just as much fun with a burger or garlicky roast chicken.

Here's what Mendoza Malbec is all about. From organic vineyards and older vines, this opens with a pure perfume of plum and raspberry fruit with floral and spice accents.  Round and complexly textured and flavored in the mouth, the fruit stays in the front with accents of stone, coffee, and cocoa.  Long and lingering finish over the sweet, ripe, tannins.  Excellent value.

Corte Adami Valpolicella Superiore 2010 Corte Adami Valpolicella Superiore 2010

An "old school" Valpolicella from a fairly young estate (2004).  A blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes from 40 year-old vines done all in tank, this features ripe black cherry fruit flavors and aromas with a dash of fresh, resiny, pine and herb. With a little air, the fruit gets darker and spicier and a lovely dried tobacco note emerges.  Juicy and lightly tannic, this will work extremely well at table.

A great value from the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2010 Paraiso manages to delivery plenty of ripe Pinot fruit without heaviness or over-ripeness.  Raspberry, cherry, and wild berry fruit flavors gain complexity from a touch of earthiness and a kiss of French Oak.  A touch lighter on its feet than the 2010, but delicious all the same and ready to enjoy tonight!

Xavier Clua does it again!  The newest release of this unaoked red from Terra Alta is better than ever.  On the nose it shows dark black plum and super-ripe black raspberry fruit with a hint of earth - reminiscent of a first class Ribera del Duro.  It's medium bodied and fresh on the attack with black raspberry fruit, some crisp sweet cherry, and a little blood orange citrus element.  The fruit is sweet and ripe but stays fresh, not jammy or overripe.  The finish shows more raspberry and a dash of black cherry with some sweet spice and fine, ripe, tannin.  You can drink this today simply for the fruit and freshness or give it a little time (a year or two) to gain even more complexity  Not a blockbuster at all, but easy as pie to drink!  A blend of 50% Garnatxa Negra, 20% Syrah, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vina Robles Red4 2010 Product #27534 (In Stock)
Vina Robles Red4 2010 Vina Robles Red4 2010

It’s not entirely clear how a couple of guys of Swiss heritage created one of Paso Robles’ most exciting young wine estates.  Swiss native Hans Nef spent a couple of years looking for vineyard in California before deciding to buy an scrubby property dotted with oak trees in the Central Coast’s Paso Robles region in 1996.  Fellow Swiss native Matthias Gubler joined in 1999 and made Vina Robles’s first vintage that year.

Nef and Gubler motto – “European Inspiration – California Character” describes their entry-level Red4 blend perfectly.  As in France’s Rhone Valley, the wine is a blend of distinctive grapes – Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Mourvedre – that complement one another beautifully.

"There’s a robust heartiness to this Rhône-style blend that makes it perfect for drinking on cold nights with spicy barbecue or stew. Mainly Syrah and Petite Sirah, it’s rich in blackberry, bacon and black pepper flavors. Bone dry and moderate in alcohol, it represents great quality for the price."Wine Enthusiast 90 points
