Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015 Product #32442 (In Stock)
Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015 Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015

The big 90 point rating from Vinous is the kind of praise you expect to find for a $15-$20 Rioja, which makes the everyday $11.99 price a pleasing surprise (and this week’s super $6.98 two-case deal a stunner).  But that’s the kind of value that Wine Enthusiast Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela delivers on a daily basis.  Here, Fran works with Rioja’s Unión de Cosecheros of Labastida to select his own favorite batches – Cuvee KPF – just for the US market.  Unlike some other importers, Fran isn’t trying to create a super-charged, over-ripe, parody of Spanish wine built just to pick up critical points.  Instead, he’s delivered us a very fine, classically-styled, Rioja of nice restraint now and plenty of short-term cellar potential.  As IWC said of a previous release, “it's an excellent value for Rioja.”  Especially at these remarkable savings prices!

“Aged for three months in used American oak barrels. Vivid ruby. Bright, sharply focused aromas of fresh red fruits and flowers, along with a spicy overtone and a hint of vanilla. Lithe and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering vibrant, oak-spiced raspberry and cherry flavors and a subtle rose pastille nuance. Finishes supple and long, displaying silky, slow-building tannins and resonating spiciness.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

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!

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

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015 Product #32269 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015

The “big brother” to our best-selling Pinot Grigio of all time hails from a small vineyard small vineyard just north of the Alto Adige city of Bolzano.  Perched at 250-300 meters of elevation, it receives all of Alto Adige's bright summer sunshine but keeps cool thanks to constant breezes and cool evening air from the nearby Alpine and Dolomite mountains. A slow fermentation and aging of about 35% of the wine in large oak cask gives this more richness, power and complexity than the “regular” bottling, with no loss of refreshing crispness.  A great summer chill-out wine with the heft and body to enjoy on cool autumn and cold winter nights, too.

“Kaltern Caldaro offers an extensive line of value white wines that are truly spectacular. I am impressed by the Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Kerner-based wines. I highly recommend these beautiful wines from the extremely balanced 2015 vintage. The Kaltern Caldaro 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Söll is a zesty and refreshing white wine that delivers a pristine and bright drinking experience. There is a touch of sassy spice on the close that follows fruity tones of peach, melon and citrus. The wine offers good dimension and depth.”Wine Advocate 90 points

Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Product #32542 (In Stock)
Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016

Ed Sbragia made his name – and the winery’s fame – during a 32 year tenure as Beringer’s head “winemaster.” This 100% Chardonnay comes from Ed’s “Home Ranch” vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, just 1 mile from Dry Creek and the Russian River. The ripe fruit is hand harvested, sorted, and then fermented and aged “sur lie” in French oak (just 10% new).  The result is a fresh, vibrant, wine that delivers plenty of Russian River richness in the form of a creamy texture and generous apple, pear, and tropical fruit.  Wine Spectator under-rates this a bit, but is correct on one thing – as fine as it is today, it will be even more delicious a few months from now!

“Bold, rich and spicy, with a juicy core of melon, fig, green apple and citrus flavors, shaded by light spicy oak. Young and edgy, this can stand a little cellar time.” Wine Spectator 89 points

Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 Product #32584 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015

Jean-François Mestre and his son, Nicolas, make their Bourgogne Blanc with all the care of a fine Meursault - which it nearly is! The grapes grow in a half-dozen small plots within the commune of Meursault tucked between the village and the RN 74 road running north to Beaune and south to Puligny-Montrachet. Just as in their 1er Cru Meursault vineyards, farming is organic (in conversion to biodynamic), with a mixture of grassy cover crops (to force the vines to compete for moisture and nutrients) and plowed rows (putting that cover crop back into the soil). Harvest is by hand, sorting careful, and pressing light into French oak (all used).
 
The wine is a marvel, somehow combining the richness of vintage 2015 with sizzling, snappy, almost Chablis-like zest and energy. A bit tight on the nose, with subtle aromas of lemon, apricot, and green pineapple fruit with accents of oyster shell and mint. On the palate, you'll feel the vintage's characteristic richness but taste taut zesty, Meursault flavors of lemon curd, hazelnut, sea shell, spice and mint. Finishes pure, firm, and long with lemon, mint and toasted nut flavors lingering nicely. A magnificent seafood wine now and poised to improve and gain richness over the next few years.

Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Product #32238 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016

Jean Paul Thibert's Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse has been a store favorite for a few years now - but for the second vintage in a row his Pouilly Fuisse completely blows the doors off.   Our first thought on tasting this:  There's a lot of $40 Chassagne-Montrachet that's not nearly this good.

The wine greets you with gorgeous aromas of ripe orchard fruits - apple, peach, pear - with accents of lemon, hazelnut, fresh butter and white flowers.  Then this beauty delivers an absolutely classic white Burgundy palate of grilled pineapple, peach, pear, and lemon fruit with hazelnut, creme fraiche, and hints of salted caramel coming up as the wine warms.  The oak is well-integrated, the texture is rich and creamy and mouth-coating and the finish long and fresh, leaving hazelnut, mint, and tangerine flavors lingering. Real white Burgundy quality and satisfaction here at the price under most mid-range California Chardonnays (and, if you like Cali Chard, you’ll want to try this!)  “Burgundy” and “Bargain” don’t show up in the same sentence, or glass, often.  Don’t miss this one!

Casaloste Chianti Classico 2014 Product #32295 (In Stock)
Casaloste Chianti Classico 2014 Casaloste Chianti Classico 2014

Casaloste’s vineyards lie in the heart of the “Conca d’Oro” – the “Golden Shell” where you’ll also find growers like Fontodi, Castello dei Rampolla, and other of Chianti’s greats.  Proprietor and winemaker Giovanni d'Orsi's Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, hand harvested at optimal ripeness, fermented in tank and then aged 12 months in large (500 liter) French oak cask.  An amazing wine for a "challenging" vintage, tt’s loaded with rich Chianti black cherry fruit with accents of violet, leather and chocolate.  There’s a depth and richness here that takes this to a higher level than the average Classico and fantastic mid-palate energy.  You’ll love it now -2024 with mushroom pasta and grilled beef.

"The 2014 Chianti Classico is bright, focused and impeccably balanced. Veins of acidity give the flavors striking nuance and energy. Sweet red plum, cherry, mocha and spice extend the finish in this gorgeous, super-expressive Chianti Classico from Casaloste. This is a terrific effort for the vintage."   Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Voliero Rosso Di Montalcino 2015 Product #32382 (In Stock)
Voliero Rosso Di  Montalcino 2015 Voliero Rosso Di  Montalcino 2015

We sometimes think of Rosso di Montalcino as "baby Brunello," and some winemakers craft their Rosso in that style:  rich, dark, powerful and structured if just a touch less deep than Brunello.  But Andrea Cortonesi’s Voliero Rosso di Montalcino 2015 is something different.  It certainly captures the dark fruit and layered complexity of Sangiovese Grosso grown in the sandier soils of Montalino's norther vineyards.  But this is no "almost Brunello" - instead, it's a wine of unique purity, grace and even finesse that is uniquely Rosso.

It's also really, really, delicious!  Aromas of crushed berries, violets, spice and fresh leather all waft from the glass with the fruit getting darker and more prominent with air. In the mouth it glides across your palate with beautifully purity and deftness, layering fresh raspberry and cherry fruit with floral, spice and fresh earth accents. On the finish, the sweet fruit keeps on singing out over very fine, ripe, tannins and tangy cherry juice acidity.  Although the aromas and flavors are very Montalcino, the texture and freshness resemble a top Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, and this will work like that with salmon, grilled beef, and mushroom dishes.

Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Product #32437 (In Stock)
Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015

Jim Maresh’s focus is on single vineyard Pinot Noir, so in most years, he sells off any barrels or lots that don’t make it into the final single vineyard cuvee.  In excellent years, though, that wine is just too good to part with, so he supplements it with fruit from neighbors and bottles this wine:  the Dundee Hills cuvee.  The 2014 was the first release of the Dundee Hills bottling in a few years.  It was a fine, 90-point, gem that Wine Advocate called “probably the bargain of the vintage."  The 2015 is better.

Oregon’s 2015 vintage looked and felt a lot like 2014 – warm weather, big harvest, bold fruit.  The difference is that the 2015s have better structure and style, both of which are on display here.  You’ll find ripe, dark red, fruit on the nose here with accents of blood orange and subtle smoke.  Wonderfully generous and vivid in the mouth, the dark cherry and plum fruit expands and coats your palate before savory notes of licorice and mushroom come in on the back.  The flavors linger nicely over fine, silky smooth, tannins that promise delight with food and 7-10 years improvement in cellar.  Terrific, delicious, stuff.

Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014 Product #32543 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014

Think about what you’re hoping to get from $50 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.  Bold aromas of blackcurrant, crushed blackberry, chocolate, and spice for sure.  Oodles of dark berry and currant fruit with bold accents of sweet spice, dark chocolate, and a bit of creamy mocha – that sounds good.  And a plush, velvety, texture that feel luxurious and rich and finishes smooth, lush and long with the tannins nicely cloaked in lingering black fruit and spice seals the deal.  You’ll find all that here in a wine that’s ready to drink right now with beef and lamb and will actually get better still over the next 5+ years.

It’s 100% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, with most of the fruit coming from the red-hot Oak Knoll district in the southern part of Napa.  Cooling breezes from the bay helped moderate 2014’s warmth and lengthen hang time for the small, intense, berries.  A slow, two-week, fermentation with manual punch-downs followed by 15 months in 50% new French oak mellowed the powerful extraction and added lovely notes of spice and herb.  And somehow sliding in under the critics’ tasting agendas helps us keep the price of what really should be a $50 bottle to very user-friendly levels.  A delicious, extremely high-value, Napa Cab.

Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2011 Product #32373 (In Stock)
Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2011 Accordini Amarone Classico Le Bessole 2011

Accordini’s Amarone from the famous Cru (vineyard) of Le Bessole has all the heft and power you love in Amarone with just a touch of elegance and freshness from higher-altitude vineyards.  It’s got all the power and structure you’d expect from Amarone to go along with spicy dark fruits like dried cranberry, currants, cherries, and more.  But, instead of the plodding heaviness, prune-like flavors, and vinegar-like volatile acidity Amarone can fall prey to, this is fresh, clean, and very pure.  Spicy fruit, chocolaty richness, and an intense, spicy, and dry finish make this a great match for grilled pork tenderloin, baby back ribs, or even a well-marbled steak.  Compare it to wine costing $50-$75 or more – you’ll be convinced!

“Aromas of ripe raspberry jam, plum, menthol and baking spice lead the nose on this bold red. The dense palate delivers raisin, dried black cherry and licorice alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the finish.” Wine Enthusiast 90 points

“An elegant red, with aromatic violet, citrus peel and spice notes leading to wild cherry and black raspberry fruit, layered with supple tannins and a note of fresh, loamy earth that lingers on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2026.” Wine Spectator 91 points

Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Tradition 2015 Product #32231 (In Stock)
Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Tradition 2015 Dom Jean Royer Chateauneuf Du Pape Tradition 2015

We love, love, LOVE, this wine – the rare Grenache-based blend that will satisfy the biggest Chateauneuf fan and folks who love fine Pinot Noir, too.  It’s hard to believe how much freshness and precision Jean-Marie captured here in a wine that still screams “Chateauneuf” in terms of heft and ripeness.  How did he get so much power AND silkiness in one wine?  Perhaps it’s the 5% Cinsault.  Jean-Marie think’s it’s the secret ingredient to this stunning wine, adding suppleness and freshness to the final blend.  I’m sure you can cellar this through 2025, but I’ve never had a case of this wine last more than 18 months in my cellar.  Sexy, pure, and pretty much irresistible.

"Deep red. A perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, peppery spices and smoky minerals, plus a hint of lavender that builds in the glass. Vibrant raspberry and floral pastille flavors deepen and expand with air while maintaining vivacity. Silky tannins meld smoothly with the juicy fruit on the long, penetrating, racy finish, which repeats the floral note."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91-93 points

"Starting with the barrel sample and mostly Grenache, blended with 5% each of Cinsault and Syrah, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape should be a smoking value. Full-bodied, hedonistic and even voluptuous, this beauty gives up terrific notes of strawberries, kirsch, Provençal herbs and lots of sandy/loamy soils aromas and flavors. It should drink nicely right out of the gate, yet also evolve nicely."Wine Advocate 90-93 points

Charles Clement Champagne Cuvee Speciale Brut NV Product #32579 (In Stock)
Charles Clement Champagne Cuvee Speciale Brut NV Charles Clement Champagne Cuvee Speciale Brut NV

A luxury Champagne on every dimension other than price.  The 59 wine growers who make up this Aube-based co-op select their best Chardonnay (70%) and Pinot Noir for this high-end bottling.  This year’s release is based on vintage 2008, with 40% of the blend taken from older “reserve” wines, all fermented and aged in tank (no oak).  It was blended and bottled in 2009 and then rested on the fine lees of secondary fermentation for six years before disgorgement and a light dosage.

Aube Champagnes excel in their richness, breadth and depth, and all of that is on display here.  The aromas and flavors are complex, with layers of toast, yellow stone fruit, ripe apple, and yeasty mineral forming the core and subtle accents of red berry, lemon rind, and toasted hazelnut adding complexity.  It’s beautiful in the glass, with the fine bubbles only extended aging can provide, and envelops your  palate with zesty richness before finishing fine, dry and long.  A joy to drink by itself and wildly versatile at table with everything from subtle seafood to grilled steak.  Absurdly high quality for the price.

Albert Bichot Mercurey 1er Cru Champs Martin 2015 Albert Bichot Mercurey 1er Cru Champs Martin 2015

In 2005, Alberic Bichot crated this estate (named after his young daughter) to symbolize the continued deep connection of the Bichot family with some of Burgundy's greatest vineyards. And in 2015, the 1er Cru parcel of Champs Martin delivered an exceptionaly great wine.  A good Mercurey has heft and depth; a great one adds finesse and purity. That's the lovely combination you'll find here in a wine you can enjoy tonight  or over the next 7+ years.

"This is at once riper but also more complex with good density to the red and dark currant, earth and violet aromas. The density continues on the delicious and caressing middle weight flavors that conclude in a lingering and balanced finish that is both youthfully austere and rustic."Allen Meadows 87-90 points

"The 2015 Mercurey 1Er Cru Champs-Martin, which as usual comes under the "Domaine Adélie" label, includes around 20% stem addition this year. It has an attractive bouquet with well-defined cranberry and raspberry preserve aromas, a hint of potpourri emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with sappy red and black fruit. There is a pleasant edginess here, sure a little rustic compared to others thanks to its broad-shouldered finish. However, there is charm and crispness, therefore I suspect it will drink well, especially with more hearty cuisine, over the next 4-7 years."Wine Advocate 87-89 points

Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015 Product #32585 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015 Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015

Tasting with Nicolas Mestre at the Domaine in March, we were impressed with the straight village-level Meursault. Wine Spectator was, too, awarding it a fine 90 point rating. But one taste of the 2015 Les Narvaux (which Wine Spectator didn't try), and we immediately knew it was more than worth the few extra dollars!
 
Les Narvaux is the best of Meursault's "lieu-dit" vineyards, kind of a halfway step from "village" to 1er Cru. Perched on rocky soils high on the hill above 1er Cru Les Genevrieres, Narvaux gives classic Meursault richness without heaviness and good energy with no hard edges. Michelot's is about as fine as Narvaux gets. In 2015, it's opulent and rich but retains the kind of tight focus and minerality that makes white Burgundy so exciting. Subtle lemon, orchard, hazelnut and fresh butter scents invite you in. Then BIG flavors of stone fruit, citrus, toasted nut and tangy butter fill your mouth, staying tangy and lithe for all the depth and richness. Meursault's classic minerality wells up nicely on the butter, hazelnut and mint-laced finish that seems to never end. A delicious white Burgundy that perfectly balances the richness of the year with the energy, cut and minerality that make white Burgundy...well, Burgundy!

While Faust includes some lots from the Huneeus family’s single-vineyard Quintessa project, it’s intended to stand alone as a representation of the very best qualities of all of Napa Valley.  In 2014, it’s a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot from vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville plus dashes of Mount Veeder, St. Helena and Oak Knoll fruit.  As Wine Review Online said of the 94 point 2012, “Hard to call a $50 wine a value purchase, but by Napa Valley standards this Faust Cabernet Sauvignon qualifies… If the price were $75 most Napa devotees wouldn't even blink.”  Enjoy it now - 2034.

"This is very intense with blackberries, dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, fine and fruity yet complex and intense. Structured and lightly austere. Beautiful."  James Suckling 94 points

Ken Wright Pinot Noir Abbott Claim Vyd 2016 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Abbott Claim Vyd 2016

A vineyard that I’ve underestimated in the past but that has given Ken some his most exciting wines over the past few vintages.  Ken owns and farms this marine sedimentary site with loving care.  It’s not far from Savoya and Shea, but it often packs in even more power and punch than its more famous neighbors.  The vineyard is planted to a mixture of Pommard and Dijon clone that push through about 30 inches of sedimentary soils before hitting mother rock of fractured sandstone and siltstone.  Both the clones and the soils incline Abbott Claim towards a distinctive spice and floral focus, although there’s always plenty of rich plum, cassis and black cherry fruit.

Ken Wright Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2016 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2016

Ken’s signature wine and, arguably, Willamette Valley’s signature vineyard.  Wine Advocate has suggested that Shea is the Willamette Valley’s one potential “superstar” vineyard and Ken makes the benchmark wine from this famous site.  Ken uses fruit from three different blocks in the vineyard, two planted to Dijon 114 and one to Dijon 777 clones. Shea always gives black/red fruit - especially blueberry - but with more spice and earth than other Yamhill-Carlton wines.  Always a fine marriage of ripe fruit and juicy, fresh, texture, this usually wants a few years in cellar to show its best. Ken pretty much made the reputation of this vineyard, and it's always one of his most powerful, concentrated, wines.

Always a favorite in Ken’s cellar, the Freedom Hills Pinot comes from a tiny slice (2.85 acres) of this well-respected vineyard lying between Eola Hills to the east and the Coastal Range to the west.  A tad warmer than vineyards in either neighboring region, but also possessed of unusually bright acidity that should sing through nicely in 2016.  Ken’s parcels were replanted about 10 years ago after phylloxera reached Freedom Hill, and now they give wine with a wonderful blend of richness and structure, accessibility and ability to age.  Lots of spice, chocolate, and herb notes to add complexity to the dark raspberry and plum.
