Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012 Product #29655 (In Stock)
Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012 Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012

Big and rich with plenty of power and a nice floral note, too.

"This 100% Bobal (60 to 80-year-old vines), aged four months in concrete, represents a terrific buy. It possesses excellent delineation as well as lots of blueberry and sweet and sour cherry fruit intermixed with notions of chalk and strawberries. Medium-bodied and fruity with attractive texture as well as purity, it should drink well for several years."Wine Advocate 88 points

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Product #31382 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2012 is yet another fine Toro Tempranillo.  The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), hand harvested from vines 30+ years-old. There’s plenty of ripe Temparnillo fruit here – cherry, blackberry and plum – and very nice doses of wood spice and the grape’s exotic sandalwood fragrance.  But cool nights on the vine and careful treatment in the winery leave a bright, refreshing, acidity in place as well and the smooth, refined, tannins don’t get in the way of solo sipping pleasure.  A lot of wine for a very  modest price and the best release yet from this perennial value leader.

Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012 Product #30949 (In Stock)
Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012 Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012

IT'S BACK!!!  Xavier Vignon consults with vine growers and winemakers at some of the Rhone’s most famous estates, and he takes just a bit of his fee in the form of grapes to make outstanding wines like this one.  Grenache from 80+ year-old vines, nicely rich Syrah, and a remarkable 25% Mourvedre – very generous for a wine at this price level – are all harvested ripe, fermented cool, and aged in concrete tank to retain 100% authentic Rhone character.

"The 2012 Côtes du Rhône is another beauty by this team. Licorice, roasted herbs, pepper and plenty of sweet fruit come together in this medium to full-bodied, layered, and textured effort. Made from 60% Grenache, and Mourvedre and Syrah that saw mostly concrete tank, it’s a smoking Côtes du Rhône (and a fabulous value) to drink over the coming 3-4 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012 Product #30959 (In Stock)
Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012 Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012

Here's a big, rich, plush and very smooth blend of seven different Washington grapes:  Caberenet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Grenache, Tempranillo and Barbera all given 16 months in oak for extra depth.  Not at all heavy, but full of blackberry and blueberry pie fruit with accents of chocolate and spice.  The fruit and spice turn more fresh on the long, soft, finish.  A great cookout red!

Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012 Product #29306 (In Stock)
Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012 Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012

Possibly the sunniest vineyard in France, La Clape sits right on the Mediterranean coast in deepest Languedoc.  You'll smell and taste the region's sun-baked stones and scrubby herb and pine here but also oodles of earthy strawberry and cherry red fruit.  A floral note weaves in and out even as the wine gets meatier and more savory with air. Finishes firm and earthy with plenty of garrigue.  Fun!

Bodegas Ego Infinito Jumilla 2012 Product #31634 (In Stock)
Bodegas Ego Infinito Jumilla 2012 Bodegas Ego Infinito Jumilla 2012

This started as a $75 wine - with the polish and power to match - but has gotten a little more affordable of late.  Monestrell for fruit and earth and 10% Petit Verdot for violets and black fruit.

"Cola, licorice and leather notes frame plum and tar flavors in this savory red. There's good depth beneath the polished texture, with balanced tannins and balsamic acidity for structure. Monastrell and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 91 points

Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Product #31476 (In Stock)
Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012

The new vintage of our best-selling Malbec ever is another winner!.  Everything about this wine is “super-premium” – the high-end oak, hand harvesting, low yields, even the packaging - except the price!  Made to sell for $60 in the US, a change in distribution created this amazing opportunity to enjoy top-shelf luxury at a very nice, everyday, price.

"I was very impressed with this set of wines produced by a company that owns no vineyards, but sources grapes from selected locations in Mendoza. The 2012 Malbec Grand Reserve sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, aged for one year in French oak barrels, has aromas of incense, spices and black and red cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows a profusion of fine-grained tannins that coat your mouth. It has a classical, serious profile, with restraint and poise. Drink 2015-2019."Wine Advocate 90 points

Fattoria Del Cerro Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2012 Fattoria Del Cerro Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2012

Montepulciano Sangiovese's chewy tannins are here but buffered by loads of rich fruit.  For hearty fare.

"A red with lots of ripe dark fruits, mushroom and leaf aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a tasty, savory finish. Plenty of flavor. Drink now."  James Suckling 92 points

"A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Mammolo, this offers classic varietal scents of underbrush, wild berry, blue flower and a whiff of leather. The firm palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry, white pepper and anise framed in tightly packed but mature tannins. Drink through 2020."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Elyse C' Est Si Bon Naggiar Vyd Sierra Foothills 2012 Elyse C' Est Si Bon Naggiar Vyd Sierra Foothills 2012

"It is Good!" is on the label and what you'll say after tasting this robust blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Counoise from California's Sierra Foothills.  Lush aromas of blue/black berries and roasted strawberry with a touch of earth.  Just as plush on the palate with deep, dark, fruit and plenty of earthy complexity.  Finishes soft and ripe with fine tannins.  Fun stuff indeed!

Dom Du Tix Ventoux Cuvee De Bramefan 2012 Dom Du Tix Ventoux Cuvee De Bramefan 2012

The past two vintages of this oak-aged powerhouse Syrah (92%) and Grenache (8%) blend earned 90 points from Robert Parker and The Wine Advocate.  The 2012 is better still.  It opens with simply gorgeous aromas of crème de cassis, kirsch, smoke, and roasted meat - complex and seductive.  On the palate, Parker's description of the 2010 is spot on:  "It possesses unbelievable richness for a wine from this appellation, as well as loads of blackberries, black currants, acacia flowers, licorice and graphite."  One of the sexiest wines I've ever tried from Ventoux, but one that has sneaky structure and glorious freshness as well.  Ready and delicious right now and built to improve over the next 5-6 years.  A "wow" wine and stellar value.

Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Product #30408 (In Stock)
Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Jonata The Paring Red 2012

An intense blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (24%) plus Cab Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged in barrel for 22 months. It's rich and creamy with loads of chocolate and cassis and a soft, supple, finish.

"The 2012 Red Wine is superb. Supple, radiant and expressive, the 2012 graces the palate with exquisite dark fruit, mocha, plums, spices, raspberry jam and dark spices. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this supremely delicious Cabernet Sauvignon-based red. The 2012 Red Wine is easily one of the very best values readers will find in California."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"Made by the team at Jonata, these wines are basically declassified lots that didn't make the cut for the top Jonata releases. These 2012s are a step up from past vintages and are crazy values. Don't miss a chance to grab some of these! The smokin' good 2012 Red Wine sports an inky purple color to go with full-boded, pure and layered aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, blackberries and graphite. Gorgeously pure, concentrated and structured, with the classic Jonata tannic grip, it's made with a slightly gentler extraction to be more approachable, but it will still have a decade or more of longevity. Aged in 45% new French oak, don't miss it!"Wine Advocate 91 points

Rich and delicious!

"Possessing slightly more texture and depth than the Gigondas, the 2012 Vacqueyras is another wine from this team that shows it terroir beautifully. Ripe, upfront, medium to full-bodied and voluptuous, it gives up beautiful dark berry fruit, violets, licorice and herbs on the nose. It too should drink beautifully over the coming 7-8 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

Don't let the rating put you off - this is pure, nicely ripe, and delicious Pinot Noir!

"A very pretty wine in its class, with vibrant red cherry fruit, sweet floral notes and lovely overall radiance. This is a great introduction to the domaine and, as one might therefore reasonably expect, a fairly classic style of Bourgogne, especially in its sense of structure."  Vinous (Galloni) 87 points

This sweet wine from Southwestern France is made with hand-picked Tannat grapes allowed to semi-dry on the vine. The wine is rich and dense, with ample black currant and black cherry fruit framed by notes of chocolate and spice cake.  Complex and medium sweet, this would be a great match with anything made with dark chocolate.

Marquis De Calon St Estephe 2012 Marquis De Calon St Estephe 2012

Another great "second wine" value here, this time from 3rd Growth Saint-Estephe estate Calon Segur. From Calon Segur's famous walled vineyard, this is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot plus Cab Franc and Petit Verdot aged 17 months in 30% new oak. Rich and fleshy with tannins that want decanting or a few years.

"A spicy, meaty red with berry character and hints of mahogany. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a juicy finish. Outstanding second wine for the vintage."  James Suckling 90 points

Kangarilla Road Shiraz Alluvial Fans 2012 Product #31654 (In Stock)
Kangarilla Road Shiraz Alluvial Fans 2012 Kangarilla Road Shiraz Alluvial Fans 2012

Limited!  One of the key drivers in McLaren Vale's renewal after the great Shiraz collapse of the late 2000s was, of all things, a map.  As Lisa Perrotti-Brown explains in The Wine Advocate, “In July 2010, after decades of research performed by curious geologists, a detailed Geology Map of the entire McLaren Vale wine region - GDA 94 - was unveiled. A simple peek at what-lies-beneath revealed an astonishing truth to the local winemakers: that there was an undeniable link between marked geological variations in McLaren Vale and notable differences in the characters of the wines that the varying areas produced.”

Kangarilla Road’s Kevin O’Brian and his fellow winemakers created the Scarce Earth wine series to showcase how Shiraz performs on the Vale’s amazingly diverse soils.  His 2012 contribution comes from vines planted in the 1970s on ancient alluvial soils. Here, Shiraz shows more aromatic intensity and distinct notes of tar and earth.  It’s wonderfully lush and rich, but stays impeccably balanced and fresh through the very, very, long finish.

"Deep garnet/purple, the 2012 Alluvial Fans Shiraz (Scarce Earth) reveals attractive aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, black pepper, asphalt, tar and earth. Elegant on the medium to full-bodied palate, it has velvety smooth tannins, tons of fruit and earth flavors and a long finish."Wine Advocate 93 points

Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012 Product #31803 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012 Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012

Perhaps Austria's very best red grape, Blaufrankisch remains relatively unknown here in the USA.  This deep, rich, and spicy example from Anton Bauer could help fix that a bit.  It's a barrel selection made by importer Klaus Wittauer and Anton that Klaus liked so much he put one of his artist wife's paintings on the label.  20 months in oak plus extra time in bottle has done this nothing but good! Very plush and deep with a very long finish, the interplay of fruit, chocolate and exotic spice is utterly captivating.  A great example and highly rated by Austira's preeminent wine guide:

"Spicy black berry flavor, nuances of dark cherries, a touch of dried fruit and cardamom. Complex, dark berry fruit, prominent, well integrated tannins, ripe cherries, chocolate finish, good development potential, a fine food companion."  Falstaff 92 points

A strong, rich, example of Sangiovese from the hilly vineyards of Montepulicano in central Tuscany.  About 10% Merlot adds complexity and flesh and aging for 18 months in a mixture of mid-sized and large oak casks delivers richness and spice. Ripe and deep black cherry fruit makes up the wine's core with black pepper, fresh earth, leather and smoke accents adding interest.  A great match for steak or rich stews.
