Baron De Lajoyosa Gran Reserva Carinena 2005 Product #32233 (In Stock)
Baron De Lajoyosa Gran Reserva Carinena 2005 Baron De Lajoyosa Gran Reserva Carinena 2005

Old-school Spanish red wine here priced at a pretty crazy old-fashioned level given the $25 release price.  The Marin family founded the winery in 1903 and farm old vines at 600 meters in Cariñena, about 2 hours southeast of Rioja.  It’s traditional here to grow mixtures of grapes in each vineyard, and this is a very traditional 50% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 10% Cariñena plus a bit of modern Cabernet Sauvignon.  Long aging in barrel followed by plenty of bottle time have brought this 12 year-old red to the peak of mellow maturity.

Generous aromas of spice, earth, leather, dark cherry and roasted berry get a touch of complexity from hints of sweet tobacco.  On the palate it’s medium-bodied but richly flavored with dark raspberry, baked strawberry, leather and baker’s chocolate flavors.  The finish is long and smooth and complex with sweet cherry and strawberry fruit framed by notions of tobacco, chocolate and spice.  Fully ready now (and best over the next couple of years), this will shine with grilled lamb or mellow beef dishes.

St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 Product #32033 (In Stock)
St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016

St. Kilda Chardonnay pretty much exacly what you hope for (but don't often get) in a fine value Chardonnay: refreshing, fruit filled, and balanced.  Take a sniff and enjoy the aromas of ripe pineapple and golden delicious apple. Take a sip and enjoy those same ripe fruit flavors along with just a hint of oak, just enough to round out the flavors and add a hint of nutty complexity; just enough to make the wine really say “Chardonnay” and not “anonymous cheap white wine.”

It finishes fresh and mouthwateringly clean, with just a touch of juicy apple flavor lingering on your palate. If you’ve got a crowd descending on your house for a Mothers’ Day, graduation, or upcoming Fathers’ Day gathering, this is a wine to stock up on a case or two. You’ll have it to pull out any time you need something to serve at a party or just crack open at the end of a long day.

Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Product #32008 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016

Here’s the bottom line:  if you love great Provençal rosé, then you’re going to flip for this wine and struggle to believe how inexpensive it is.  In what’s shaping up to be the finest French rosé vintage of at least the past decade, Baside’s Cotes du Rhone Rosé competes with some of the finest wines of the vintage on quality and simply crushes even average bottlings on price.

We’ve come to really love the simple, clean, approach Vincent and Stephanie Boyer bring to growing and making wine.  They farm family vineyards in and around Vissan, a cooler slice of the Southern Rhone not far from the foothills of the Alps.  They grow their grapes organically, keep yields low, and do as little as possible in the winery to allow the quality of their fruit to shine through in your glass.  The 2016 Rose is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault and 100% delicious.  Huge aromas of strawberry, peach, watermelon, cherry and dusty herb really explode from your glass.  Then those mid-summer fruit flavors fill every nook and cranny of your mouth with extra lift from notes of citrus zest, more herb, and watermelon rind pickle – sweet, sour and spicy.  The finish is chalky, mouthwatering and dry, pulling you back for sip after sip.

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #32016 (In Stock)
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016

What makes a perfect Spring/Summer party/back deck/casual entertaining white wine?  It seems to us that it should be fresh, crisp and refreshing – if you’re getting hot, it should cool you off.  It should have good body and weight so it can be enjoyed with treats like fresh seafood, grilled chicken or even hot dogs.  But, it should also have the zestiness and herbal complexity to be a perfect companion to fresh green salads.  And, in a perfect world, it should be at least a little distinctive so it stands out from the ocean of grocery store Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio out there – but without standing out too far on price.

This is that wine!  It’s made from certified organic fruit grown by young Rioja winemaker Miguel Merino Navajas in vineyards located in the far East of La Mancha – where the hills begin to rise to mountains and cool air pours down nightly to preserve freshness.  Spain’s Verdejo grape gives this a nice dose of tangerine juice, orange zest, and good body.  Sauvignon Blanc provides a burst of refreshing white grapefruit, a touch of lime, and just a refreshing dusting of fresh grass.   As the winemaker says, “Perfect to drink with Tapas, salads and vegetable dishes, all kinds of pasta, mild cheeses and exotic cuisine. It also goes great with fish, seafood, grilled meats or just a glass on its own.”

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Product #32020 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Product #32200 (In Stock)

A staff and customer favorite! This white Bordeaux starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

If you thought this was good in the past - WOW!  2016 is truly a great vintage across France, including for the 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around, delicious, white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015 Product #32266 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013 Product #32155 (In Stock)
Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013 Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013

For years, Spain's baking hot, dry, high plains south of Madrid were known for Mourvedre reds that were - at best - full of roasted fruit with chewy finishes that would charitably be called "rustic."  It took an Australian - super-consultant Chris Ringland - working with the Gil family of Juan Gil to find a way to bring "modern" flash and polish to Jumilla.  At their Bodegas El Nido, Ringland and the Gil Family perfected the art of cutting hearty Monastrell with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon to create what quickly became the region's most highly rated bottlings.  Ringland went on to repeat the feat at Bodegas Volver (Triga in Alicante) and Bodegas Castano (Solanera in Yecla).

With Fuerza, Bodeags Ego takes the Ringland approach to selected lots of fruit from then 25 hectares of old-vine Monastrell.  Blending 75% Monastrell and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and aging the young wine in 100% new American oak for 12 months creates a deep, dark, powerful with that’s loaded with blackberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit, layered with sweet wood spice and smoke, and finishes ultra-rich and smooth.  If that’s your kind of wine, then you will look long and hard to find a better example at prices like these!

"Cola, sassafras and clove notes frame a deep core of plum and currant fruit in this dense red. The texture is plush and polished, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points

Yet ANOTHER great vintage for this value superstar. Past vintages have regularly earned 90 point ratings from the critics and the 2015 was a 92 point award winner from England's Decanter Magazine. The 2016 is just terrific. Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

"Bright, medium-deep red. Expressive aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice; there's something Napa-like about the glossy torrefaction notes. Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, with a pliant texture giving this wine plenty of early appeal. But the dark fruit flavors are nicely supported by substantial ripe, oak-influenced tannins. Delivers good stuffing for the price."   Vinous (Raynolds) 88 points

It's hard to imagine how a scorching hot, bone dry, region like Northern Spain's Rueda can turn out such vibrant, fresh, thirst-quenching wines - but it does!  This blends 10% of Rioja's Viura with Rueda's on Verdejo, both from vines from 15 to 140 years old.  Picked in the cool of the night, fermented in tank, and bottled with no other manipulation, this serves up generous aromas and flavors of apricot, peach and tangerine.  A hint of prickly CO2, juicy acids and refreshing citrus pith make your mouth water and hand reach back for another sip.  A great warm-weather refresher and terrific with seafood and afternoon nibbles.
