Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011 Product #27038 (In Stock)
Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011 Finca Del Castillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2011

We have no idea how such a delicious wine made from 30 year-old, dry farmed, Tempranillo vines in La Manacha could be quite this inexpensive…but we’re glad it is! This is real, honest, “vinous” wine, packed with cranberry and black cherry fruit, accents of licorice root and cracked pepper, and long, smooth and refreshing on the finish.  A perfect wine for big celebratory parties, weddings, back yard cookouts, or just sipping all on its own.

“Bright ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by black pepper and candied rose. Tightly focused red berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and floral qualities. Emphatically fruity and silky in texture, with a smooth, gently sweet finish.”International Wine Cellar 88 points

Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011 Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011

Here's the kind of value that made Spain famous in the international wine world, but that seems to have vanished in recent years. And, the 2011 is even tastier than the very fine 2010!  This is 100% Tempranillo, aged 3 years in American Oak, and it delivers loads of honest, unconfected, aromas and flavors with a juicy, zingy, finish.  A fine party or backyard cookout red at a very compelling price.

Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #27006 (In Stock)
Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This is a big "bang for the buck" Cabernet from Chile that reminds you how Chile first established its global reputation for top quality Cab at rock-bottom prices.  Fruit for this wine grows near Chile’s Coastal Mountain range in the Colchagua Valley.  Daytime high temperatures can reach 98 degrees here, but cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean cool the fruit at night to preserve freshness and acidity.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of classic Cabernet fruit –  currant, plum, and blackberries.  It also display's Chile's trademark whiff of herbs and some appealing tobacco aromas, giving the wine more complexity than you’d expect at this price.  In the mouth, it’s juicy and satisfying, with an extra dose of black raspberry and currant fruit.  The juicy acids keep everything in balance and make this a flexible companion with a wide range of foods.

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2011 Product #27716 (In Stock)
Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2011 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2011

A lovely little Rhone value from one of the region's most consistent estates.

"The 2011 Cotes du Rhone rouge displays a forward, dense ruby/plum color and loads of raspberry, pepper and black cherry notes with hints of tobacco leaf and roasted Provencal herbs. A classic Cotes du Rhone made in a bistro style from a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest equal parts Cinsault and Carignan. This has been a reliable producer of terrific values in the Cotes du Rhone (and for their Tavel rose) for a number of years, and they have once again done an admirable job."Wine Advocate 88 points

Man Family Wines Pinotage 2011 Product #27736 (In Stock)
Man Family Wines Pinotage 2011 Man Family Wines Pinotage 2011

A great example of just how good South Africa's Pinotage can be when it's fully ripe and treated with care.  15 months in older barrels rounded this off nicely and lets the dark cherry and plum fruit shine through.  A whiff of what the French call "garrigue" - the blend of thyme, lavender, and scrub pine that permeates the Rhone valley - gives complexity.  Juicy acids and fine tannin provide just the right support. Fine value.

Kenwood Chardonnay Yulupa 2012 Product #27757 (In Stock)
Kenwood Chardonnay Yulupa 2012 Kenwood Chardonnay Yulupa 2012

A very tasty California Chardonnay here at a very nice price.  Kenwood launched this wine for restaurant by the glass programs, but it's turned out to be a winner at home as well!  Aromas and flavors feature ripe stone fruits and grilled pineapple framed by notes of rich caramel and tangy citrus.  Full, but not heavy, full of fruit, but not fruity, this is the kind of party Chardonnay California should turn out by the tankfull, but seldom does.  Rock solid value.

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).

Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Product #27447 (In Stock)
Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011 Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2011

The 2011 edition started out a bit closed and tight, but now it’s opened up to deliver complex, delicious, aromas and flavors of golden apple, ripe pear, lemon curd, and fennel.  The lemony fruit gets a hint of kumquat and salty sea breeze on the brisk, mouthwatering, finish.  Surprisingly rich-feeling in your mouth, especially given the less than 13% alcohol, this is a killer back porch sipper and better still with briny seafood or salty meats.  As Jancis Robinson said of the 2008, “one mouthful of this was enough to remind me of a lunch in Liguria high above the sparkling blue Mediterranean."

"BEST BUY! Made from a hard-to-find variety in California, this bright, beautifully aromatic wine expresses gorgeous scents of jasmine that follow through in flavor to the finish. Its layers of lime, apple and a generous level of minerality are perfectly executed and waiting for seafood."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011 Drops Of Jupiter California Red Wine Blend 2011

The fact that a wine comes from a famous entertainer isn't a particularly strong endorsement. But here the proof is in the pudding, as they say.  From Train's Jimmy Stafford and Concannon Vineyard, this is once again a rock solid value red for sipping and grilling.  Mainly Petite Sirah, it's ripe and fruit-forward with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit plus just a touch of plum pudding and spice.  Soft and wide open from first pour, this finishes with big, but very soft, tannins.  Great burger or sipping wine and a very nice value, too.

Josephine Dubois Bourgogne Blanc 2011 Product #27232 (In Stock)
Josephine Dubois Bourgogne Blanc 2011 Josephine Dubois Bourgogne Blanc 2011

At their best, 2011 white Burgundies hint at 2008's vibrant minerality but deliver softer, more easy to enjoy now, pleasure.  That's the case here.  A fine, honest, bottle of Chardonnay with notes of green apple, chalk, limes kin and toasted nuts.  Clean and fresh from start to finish - a little Chablis-like, actually - with good length and a touch of saline mineral on the mouthwatering finish.  Very classy Bourgogne, especially at this price!

"A terrific chardonnay with mouthwatering acidity and impeccable balance, this is an excellent wine for casual meals." 2 Stars Dave McIntyre, Washington Post

Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Product #27674 (In Stock)
Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011

This little gem WAY over delivers for its modest price.  Winegrower/maker Federico Benegas Lynch is a master of getting perfectly ripe fruit from his old-vine vineyards and, with help from master consultant Michel Rolland, turning out honest wines of great depth and character.  Here you'll find a fun, fruity, wine with earthy blackberry, blueberry, spice and coffee aromas and flavors.  An iron ore minerality adds complexity and the round tannins and bright acids just the right support.  It's fruitier and not quite as complex as Frederico's Estate Malbec, but just perfect for parties or pairing with everyday meals.

Here is my actual tasting note from the first time I tried this:  “This is just stupid delicious.”  A few more details – this is 100% Sangiovese made in staeinless steel that opens with fresh and lovely aromas of violets, purple fruits and crushed cherries.  In the mouth it’s juicy and ripe with loads of pretty fruit and a dark, earthy, streak.  Bright and clean through the end with a delicious note of coffee and cocoa dust emerging at the end.  Drink it with a little chill with pizza and pasta or warmer with anything off the grill.  Like I said:  Stupid delicious.

A project of importer Eric Solomon and Ventoux's Frederic Chaudiere, this comes from 40-60 year-old Grenache growing in high-altitude vineyards named for a 400 year-old farmhouse.  Bursting with ripe, juicy, strawberry and cherry fruit with rich accents of damp earth and cracked black pepper.  It's full in texture and flavor, but with plenty of body but also a nice sappy freshness.  A bold bistro red to enjoy with or without food.

Here's a versatile and delicious California Chardonnay built to satisfy a crowd - and you!  Ripe, creamy, and fresh, the aromas and flavors feature juicy apple, pineapple, peach, citrus, and salty caramel. Mostly made in stainless steel for brightness and fruit, the 15% aged in oak delivers just a hint of smoke to complement the buttery notes on the back.  Lots of lees stirring gives it a creamy, round, mouthfeel and the juicy apple and sweet butter caramel flavors linger nicely on the fresh finish. A fine party or everyday Chardonnay and outstanding value.

Biodynamic  Like a church bell on a winter morning, this is clear and true.  Plenty of pure, ripe, fresh raspberry fruit and just a touch of fresh herb that never veers off into bell pepper territory.  There's enough earthiness for any Loire Cab Franc fan, but the purity and ripeness of the juicy fruit makes this easy for anyone to love.  It's easy, but not simple.

Kellerei Kaltern Chardonnay Wadleith 2011 Product #27692 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Chardonnay Wadleith 2011 Kellerei Kaltern Chardonnay Wadleith 2011

This is the kind of wine that challenges preconceptions, especially if you think "foothills of the Dolomites" means "cool climate wines."  In fact, there's plenty of warmth in the region around Bolzano, which makes it possible to grow some pretty captivating Chardonnay - if you're careful.  The growers of Kelleri Kaltern plant the fruit for this wine on chalky gravel (Chardonnay loves chalk!) in windy crevices of the mountains.  The breeze keeps the fruit healthy and lets the fruit hang until late in the season, developing plenty of sugar and complex, ripe, flavors.  Whole cluster pressing, fermentation in steel, and aging about 30% in large casks preserves freshness and adds complexity.

The result is a ripe-smelling Chardonnay with generous tropical fruit framed with notes of vanilla, butter, and smoke.  Full and creamy on the palate where the fruit and hazelnut flavors coat your mouth, there's plenty of bright acidity to keep things fresh.  Tastes much more expensive than even the reasonable regular price!

Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #28169 (In Stock)
Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Bob Stack is best known as an importer of fine value wines from around the world (his Chapoutier Bila-Haut wines have been favorites for years).  He named his California negotiant venture Clos Robert to clearly indicate his preference for French-styled Cabs, and that’s what he delivers here.  Although how he managed to find such high-quality fruit in the difficult 2011 vintage is a mystery!

The 2011 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Petite Sirah and 10% Petit Verdot, all aged for a few months in used french oak.  It's full of lush currant, cassis, and black plum fruit with just the right accent of Bordeaux-like fresh herb.  Full-bodied and nicely ripe, the touches of oak spice and bitter chocolate add more complexity and the fine tannin will handle a steak easily - but there's no reason not to drink this all by itself. Hands down, the best value we've seen in California over the past two years.

"With dark purple color, this blend has aromas of blackberry jam, green peppercorn, sour cherry, and toasted cedar.  In the mouth, the flavors are reminiscent of red raspberry, cherry tart, pomegranate, vanilla bean, caramel, and hints of clove. The finish shows French oak notes of caramel and American oak notes vanilla and hints of dill as well as black cherry fruit and dried sweetened cranberry." Winery notes
