Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Product #29496 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012

Here's an outstanding value from little-known Calatayud in Spain that will do just as well on the bar for a party as it will with roasted meats or robust sausage.  It's based on 85% Garnacha from 40-50 year old bush-trained vines that have to dig deep into their non-irrigated soils for water and nutrients.  About 7% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo add structure and some black fruit notes and a dash of Syrah give meaty spice.

The 2011 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites of both 2013 and 2014, and the new vintage cranks up the intensity and depth even more.  The aromas are robust and fresh, with generous dollops of raspberry, violet and spice (just from the grapes - no oak used at all!).  The flavors follow with more raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, hints of dark chocolate and more spice.  With air, the fruit gets darker and richer, but a touch of citrusy acid and light, crisp, tannins keeps things fresh even as complex flavors of balsamic and baked strawberry linger.  Supple enough for a party, structured enough for most anything you’ll pull off the grill, and a steal of a deal, too!

"A very honest, fresh and fruit-driven red with aromas of cherries, garrigue and thyme with a medium-bodied palate, some weight and tannins that would do better with food. This is a red that sells for a song."Wine Advocate 88 points

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

Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz 2012 Product #30485 (In Stock)
Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz 2012 Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz 2012

"Smoky cherry and blackcurrant aromas are sharpened and lifted by a peppery quality and a hint of candied flowers. Supple and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of olive that becomes stronger with air. Finishes with echoing blue fruit and olive notes, good length and just a whisper of tannins."  Vinous (Reynolds)  88 points

Bodegas Lan Crianza 2012 Bodegas Lan Crianza 2012

An old favorite gets a snazzy new label but keeps the old-school style and quality intact.  It's 95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo selected from 10 to 20 year-old vines aged 18 months in barrels with American oak staves and French oak tops/bottoms.  Lots of sweet red fruit plus accents of spice and vanilla show on the nose and palate and linger on the nicely juicy finish.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012 Product #30396 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012

If you know Negromaro from Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The dark color tells you this is a ripe, deep, wine, and the aromas of dark black plum and cherry, warm licorice root, savory spice, and purple flowers reinforce that impression.  In the mouth, the flavors are bold, warming and ripe – blackberry, black cherry, hot earth, roasted meat, spice and cocoa powder – with plenty of the meaty, earthy, complexity that Salice Salentino is known for.  But, it’s the purity, clarity, and wonderful freshness of flavor and texture that take this to another level.  Ripe, not roasted.  Powerful, not rustic.  Absolutely delicious with grilled sausages, roasted meats, or just nuts and olives, at a value price hard to resist.

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!

Here's a juicy, party-friendly, Aussie Cabernet at a fine value price.  Lots of fresh fruit with a nice lash of spiced oak.

"Oak-accented dark berries, cherry pit, licorice and vanilla on the nose and in the mouth. Broad and fleshy in style, with a peppery note adding back-end cut. Dusty tannins lend grip on the persistent finish, which features a repeating vanilla note."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points

Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano d'Alba 2012 Product #30206 (In Stock)
Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano d'Alba 2012 Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano d'Alba 2012

Diano d'Alba is one of a handful of DOCGs devoted to this often overlooked Piemonte grape. Salvano makes a beauty, robust and loaded with black plum and blackberry fruit and a touch of berry blossom.  Creamy in texture and very flavorful, this finishes with firm, grippy, tannins, plummy fruit, and a hint of classic almond.  Fresher than some Dolcetto and a fine match for sausage or just to sip.

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.

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

Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition 2012 Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition 2012

Dom d'Eole is back!  And, these organically farmed vines in the heart of Provence are giving their best wines ever.  The delicious 2012 Tradition is equal parts cement fermented and aged Grenache and Syrah with 20% Carignan for a gutsier texture and blue-black fruit. The aromas and flavors really build with air revealing dark black fruit - plum, berries - with hints of black olive and garrigue (lavender, rosemary & thyme).  On the palate, there's wonderful purity and freshness to the dark fruit, olive, and garrigue flavors with hints of Earl Gray tea, lavender, and black raspberry pumping on across the long, juicy, finish.  Delicious right now with lamb or North African foods, this will develop in cellar for a lot longer than you'll wait to drink it.

A fine, big, chewy Zinfandel from the dry hills of Amador County.  Big brambly fruit, a touch of spice, and plenty of mouthfilling richness.  Fine value in an old school Zin.

"This beautifully balanced wine is poised, a bit reserved, but has a distinctive personality. Aromas of red cherry, cedar and cinnamon precede tangy raspberry flavors that ride on a firm but light texture and linger on through the finish."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Ch La Caze Bellevue Saint Emilion 2012 Ch La Caze Bellevue Saint Emilion 2012

An outstanding St. Emilion that's dead classic in every way other than price.  From 30 year-old vines of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc and aged in all neutral oak, this opens with generous scents of currant, coffee, plum, blackberry, herb and tobacco.  In the mouth, utterly delicious and full of black fruit (berry, cherry, currant) served up with a handful of dark herb.  Plump in the middle and then focused and firm on the finish, you can drink this now with lamb or beef or wait 4-8 years if you'd rather.

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

Tenuta Di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2012 Product #30502 (In Stock)
Tenuta Di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2012 Tenuta Di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2012

Palistorti is one of just two reds made here (the other costs 2x as much!), and it’s simply captivating in 2012.  A blend of Sangiovese and 15% each Merlot and Syrah, I can’t quite decide if this is more like a 3-4 year-old Brunello or a really nice vintage of Antinori’s Tignanello super-Tuscan.  From the nose to the rich, powerful, palate this explodes with pure black cherry, fruit blossom, spice, and expensive leather aromas and flavors.  The very deep flavors get support from fine-grained, ripe, tannins as hints of crushed herb, licorice, and expensive balsamic weave in and out of the long, long, finish.  Distinctive, delicious, and very nicely priced.

"The 2012 Palistorti di Valgiano is bursting at the seams with personality. Juicy dark cherries, smoke, earthiness, licorice and violets are all super-expressive in the glass. Fleshy and boisterous, with plenty of intense, super-ripe fruit, the 2012 Palistorti di Valgiano delivers the goods, and then some. Drink this fleshy, immensely pleasing red over the next handful of years.”  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

This sweet wine from Southwestern France is made with hand-picked Tannat grapes allowed to semi-dry on the vine.
