Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016 Product #32789 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016

Robert Parker called the 2011 edition of this perennial favorite value red, “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world.”  The 2016 is as fine and fresh as ever.  This year it blends ripe Garnacha and a splash of Syrah, both grown on the dusty, barren, soils of Spain’s Campo de Borja region.  Naturally grown, hand harvested, and fermented and aged all in tank, it’s a perfect blend of rich, ripe, fruit and stylish, refreshing, structure.

"The flagship 2016 Borsao Garnacha is mostly Garnacha complemented with Syrah. This is also fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and bottled unoaked. The Syrah might give it a little touch and some oomph in the nose, somehow spicy and a touch smoky from the skins of the variety. The palate is fleshy and juicy, very tasty, with unnoticeable tannins. It goes down easily with a velvety sensation. Superb value."Wine Advocate 89 points

Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Product #32704 (In Stock)
Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015

The kind of wine Languedoc does best - a great all-purpose, no oak, quaffer made from 60% Grenache (for ripe red fruit) and 40% Syrah (for meaty, smoky, accents). Dark red raspberry fruit holds center stage with hints of blackberry and savory notes of pepper and black olive for interest.  Juicy and easy drinking with a fun, mouthwatering, finish.  Tastes like $15 - and a good $15 red at that!

Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016 Product #32769 (In Stock)
Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016 Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016

Some of the best wine values in the world come from hidden nooks and crannies of Spain - like this one!  From an old growing region in Aragon, this is a blend of very old vine Garnacha and Syrah done all in tank.  There's fantastic freshness here - especially for Carinena! - with blackberry and black raspberry fruit at the core and a nice, almost blood orange, note on the back. Easy drinking.

Cape Heights Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Product #32949 (In Stock)
Cape Heights Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Cape Heights Sauvignon Blanc 2017

This is one of those great value wines that can only come from an under-appreciated growing region - in this case, South Africa's Western Cape.  Boutinot Wines has 30+ vintages under their belts now and a team that features two Wasters of Wine and a Master Sommelier.  They've forged partnerships with top-notch growers across the Western Cape and used those relationships to make a terrific wine here you can enjoy for a song.

About 85% of this is ripe, generous, Sauvignon Blanc which delivers broad aromas and flavors of fresh green melon, pink and ruby red citrus, and an attractive dash of crushed herb.  The 15% Colombard - a specialty of France's Gascony region - gives zest and focus to the juicy, mouthwatering, finish of melon, lime and green plum fruit.  A fine party and sipping white that will shine with salads and all kinds of seafood!

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017 Product #33021 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017

2017 brings a nice update to the label for Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rose and a bit of an upgrade to what is already one of our most popular pinks.  Nothing's changed about the wine growing or making. It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé.  After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.

The wine's a beautifully transparent salmon pink that sparkles in sunshine.  Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind.  In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp but also fleshy and rich, with loads of ripe berry fruit and just a touch of mineral. It fills your mouth with flavor and fun before the acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip. “Berry” delicious!

Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2017 Product #33034 (In Stock)
Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2017 Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2017

What a find!  Vina Siegel has delivered solid value from Chile's Colchagua Valley for years, but this 2016 Chardonnay under the super-value Crucero - "Crossroads" - label is the best we've tried yet. This is a rich, fruit-filled, Chardonnay with plenty of ripe orchard fruits, pineapple and mango aromas and flavors.  A short stay in oak adds vanilla, coconut and spice accents that add complexity to the richly textured mid-palate and length to the fruity vanilla finish. An exceptional value in rich, nicely oaked, and very smooth Chardonnay with plenty of fruit and a fresh, dry, finish.

Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Product #32690 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

The fresh fruit flavors keep on pumping through a generous, oak-free, finish that invites casual sipping and sharing.

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

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.

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Product #32441 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!

The newest release of this long-time customer and staff favorite is like a richer, less grapefruity, version of Sauvignon Blanc.  Here big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (tangerine, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A refreshing white to just sip and even better with Spanish tapas, sushi, or even spicy Cajun shrimp.  And, this weekend, a crazy bargain at these super savings!

Roblar Chardonnay California 2015 Product #32551 (In Stock)
Roblar Chardonnay California 2015 Roblar Chardonnay California 2015

This well-respected Sta. Rita Hills estate turns out a glorious value Chardonnay from fruit grown in cooler slices of Lodi.  Rich, generous, aromas of baked apple, ripe pear, sweet spice lead to a round, nicely textured, mouthful of spiced orchard fruit with a just right touch of caramel.  There's fine depth and amplitude to the flavor and the broad, palate-coating, finish of baked pear, french butter and spice.  The texture and depth here suggest a nicely oaked $30 Carneros Chardonnay, but there's no oak and only one-third the cost!  A great party wine (balanced nicely at 13.5%) and fine match for poultry, mushrooms and cream sauces.  Outstanding value!

Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014 Product #32573 (In Stock)
Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014 Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014

A staggering value!  Dark black raspberry, plum, purple flowers, cocoa powder and dusty mineral scents are just some of the aromas showing on the complex nose.  As in past releases, there's plenty of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit on the palate with dashes of licorice root, wild strawberry and mineral flavors in the mouth.  But the texture here is the best ever, poised and sleek at first before gaining amplitude and depth with air.  By all means enjoy it right now for the forward fruit and sophisticated mouth feel.  But stash some away for a few years and you'll be rewarded with even more intense flavors and breadth.

"One of the top wines from this producer, this blend of at least 10 grape varieties comes from its estate. The wood aging has added sophistication to this already concentrated wine. With black fruits to the fore and firm tannins, it will age well."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Les Grands Arbres Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Product #33018 (In Stock)

You don't see much "Cabernet Vin De France" - but one taste of this fruit-filled value will make you thirsty for more.  Especially more made from clearly ripe and organically grown grapes, fermented cool, and aged in tank for maximum fruit flavor and freshness.  You'll find loads of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit at the core of this juicy, easy-drinking, red with accents of herb, tobacco and cedar that evoke a bit of Bordeaux-like character. So treat it like Bordeaux if you're of a mind to and pare it with lamb or rare roast beef.  Or focus on the fleshy fruit and glug it down with a burger.  At this price, you really can't go wrong.

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.

Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016 Product #32638 (In Stock)
Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016 Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016

In Wood Case While It Lasts!  A fun, flavorful, and fine value Tuscan Sangiovese made by winemaker Paolo Masi at Tuscany’s Renzo Masi winery from grapes grown near Florence and Chianti Ruffina.  The Masi family’s Fattoria di Basciano has been hailed by Wine Advocate as “one of the rising stars of Rufina,” and their Renzo Masi project was designed to use friends’ and neighbors’ grapes to make “wines with vibrant territorial personality."  This special project by the Masi’s for importer Bob Shack does that in spades and at a fantastic value price to boot!

Ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and red berry start off bright and fresh and then get darker with a little air. The juicy acidity and light tannins make this easy to just sip, but give it enough substance to enjoy with pizza, burgers, or a big bowl of pasta and red sauce.  There's enough going on here to hold your interest through a few glasses and - especially at this price - tempt you to open a second bottle as the night goes on.  Fun stuff and fantastic value.

Unusual blend here but, once you taste it, you'll  wonder why you don't see it more often!  70% Chenin Blanc gives ripe melon and apple fruit and good, rich, body.  30% Sauvignon Blanc adds pretty white grapefruit accents and a touch of fresh herb.  The texture is pretty luxurious and the finish salty, stony, and refreshing.  A very nice value for sipping and parties and fine match for seafood, too!

Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Product #32816 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013

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 2012 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites, 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!

Lexicon Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 Lexicon Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016

A fresh, fun, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc value with just a bit of a twist.  You'll find plenty of classic Kiwi character here, with a big dose of cut grass, ripe green melon and sweet/sour citrus. But the grapefruit runs more Ruby Red than white and the generous texture keeps the wine from turning sharp or astringent.  Terrific sipper, great with seafood, and just a fine all-around value.
