Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014 Product #32028 (In Stock)
Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014 Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014

The best wines of Ribera del Duero tend to be unoaked values or barrel aged reds that cost $30+.  So we were delighted to find this honest, rich, all Tempranillo Crianza that matches rich fruit to smoky oak at a fine value price.  You'll find Ribera's signature dark purple fruit - black plum, dark cherry, black raspberry - with attractive accents of sandalwood and spice.  Round and deep on the palate and then smooth and spicy on the long, smoky, finish, it's a great cookout and roasted meat red you'll be happy to drink before dinner, too.

"Pure Tempranillo with a commercial profile, generously oaked but not excessive, matured in oak for 14 months. The palate has abundant tannins, sweet fruit and plenty of oak-related flavors."Wine Advocate 89 points

Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014 Product #31274 (In Stock)
Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014 Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014

Wine Advocate sums this one up nicely.  A crazy good bargain.

"The 2014 Hazana Vinas Viejas is simply one of the greatest values in Rioja that money can buy. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, this collaboration between importer Eric Solomon and the owner and winemaker has produced an absolutely amazing Rioja from 45- to 70-year-old unirrigated, head-pruned vines. Loads of lead pencil shavings, black and red currants, licorice and tobacco leaf all jump from the glass of this dense, ruby/purple wine. Soft tannins, medium to full body and fabulous intensity, make for a sensational Rioja to drink over the next 5-7 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

Abbazia Di Novacella Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2014 Abbazia Di Novacella Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2014

From the 3rd oldest continuously producing winery in the world (since 1125), this Benedictine monastery turns out a classic modern Pinot Grigio with good depth and verve.

Accornero Freisa La Bernardina 2015 Product #31626 (In Stock)
Accornero Freisa La Bernardina  2015 Accornero Freisa La Bernardina  2015

As Antonio Galloni says, Accronero is "one of Piemonte's hidden gems" and this may be their most under-the-radar  wines.  Freisa can be hard and tannic (which is why much of ends up pink and/or sweet and/or fizzy).  Here as a dry red with just a prickle of fizz, it's gorgeous. Wild aromatics of crushed flowers and strawberries lead to flavors of fresh raspberry, strawberry, and berry blossom.  Dry and floral on the finish, it's a great pizza and salami red!

Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013 Product #31625 (In Stock)
Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013 Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013

Not shy, this ripe and fruit filled Barbera! Enjoy with rich pasta sauces or stews.

"Black cherry, smoke, mocha, lavender, licorice, menthol and dark spices are some of the scents that emerge from Accornero's 2013 Barbera del Monferrato Giulin. This is another wine that boasts notable depth and resonance yet does so while maintaining remarkable balance. This extroverted Barbera should drink well for at least a handful of years."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso Dop 2014 Product #31954 (In Stock)
Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso Dop 2014 Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso Dop 2014

You can look at this wine two ways.  Technically, it's Valpolicella Ripasso, a blend of Veneto grapes (mainly Corvina) poured onto the pressings from Amarone production to take on more body and complexity.  But we think you'll really want to think of this as your new "go to" all-purpose Italian red.  Loads of dark blackberry, Bing cherry, and licorice aromas and flavors here in a wine that really fills up your mouth, but never turns heavy.  Finishes with light tannins and juicy cherry/berry fruit.  Pizza, pasta, burgers - whatever is fun to eat will taste just great with this!

Alessandro Veglio Dolcetto d'Alba 2015 Product #31690 (In Stock)
Alessandro Veglio Dolcetto d'Alba 2015 Alessandro Veglio Dolcetto d'Alba 2015

Look, if you don't like this then perhaps Dolcetto just isn't your thing.  But we think you'll love the aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry and plum fruit, the feeling and flavors of rich chocolate, and the savory lift of licorice root and bitter almond.  The tannins are light (especially for Dolcetto) and the finish long and lush with chocolate and dark fruit coating your palate.  Barolo winemaker Alessandro Veglio says this may be the best wine he's ever made.  It's certainly outstanding and very, very, delicious.

Alonso Del Yerro Ribera Del Duero 2011 Product #30625 (In Stock)
Alonso Del Yerro Ribera Del Duero 2011 Alonso Del Yerro Ribera Del Duero 2011

Rich and frankly flashy but with enough structure to pair up with steak or lamb nicely.

"Complex scents of ripe blackberry, licorice, potpourri and smoky minerals. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering intense black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that gain vivacity with air. Finishes very long and smoky, with smooth tannins and lingering blue fruit notes."  Vinous 91 points

"The 2011 Crianza is a selection of Tempranillo grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 10-15 months in a combination of new (15%) and used French oak barrels. It starts off fairly reduced, so it would benefit from energetic decanting. When it opens up, it feels marginally riper than the 2010, with notes of prunes, black cherries, tar and graphite, the oak well integrated with the fruit. The palate is full-bodied, with abundant, dusty tannins and moderate acidity. Drink now-2019."Wine Advocate 91 points

Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Product #31686 (In Stock)
Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016

Altosur - "High in the South" - wines are grown at 1,200 meters and higher elevations, giving them a fine purity and finesse to go with the bold Mendoza fruit. From estate grown fruit and with a few months barrel aging, this is loaded with juicy currant and blackberry fruit framed by touches of chocolate and crushed herb.  Plenty of heft - no one will call this "light" - but no heaviness in a tasty, drink now and with anything, Cabernet Sauvignon value.

Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles Product #17557 (In Stock)
Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles

Super rich, dense, and sticky, this Pedro Ximenez Sherry from a solera started in 1927 delivers wildly complex aromas and flavors. Try it with maple ice cream or savory cheese.

"The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer."Wine Advocate 96 points

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina White 2015 Product #31021 (In Stock)

With 8 straight 91 point ratings from Vinous, it seems likely the new release is a winner, too!  Vibrant aromas of lime zest, Granny Smith, white flower and chalk lead to zesty flavors of citrus, apricot, passion fruit, and salty mineral that get more powerful with air (and as the light prickle of CO2 blows off).  A tarragon note emerges on the bone dry, energetic finish.  Great choice for shellfish and summer.

Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2015 Product #32027 (In Stock)
Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2015 Ampelos Cellars Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2015

These guys are best known as a vineyard source for other top Sta. Rita Hills winemakers (e.g. Greg Brewer), but they make a tiny amount of wine on their own as well.  This is a terrific example with more structure and focus than you often find in such ripe, Sta. Rita Hills Pinot.  Fresh Pinot aromas of red berries, wildflowers, and spice open the show and lead to a focused mouthful of cherry, redcurrant, and raspberry fruit with accents of warm spice, earth, and cola.  Gets a little more smoky with air, but stays focused and fresh through the supple, sweetly fruited, finish.

Andrea Oberto Barbera D'alba 2014 Product #31339 (In Stock)
Andrea Oberto Barbera D'alba 2014 Andrea Oberto Barbera D'alba 2014

A classic Alba Barbera here with chunky flavors and fine acidity.  Aromas of earthy dried cherry and cocoa bean on the nose and then round, mouthfilling, flavors of black cherry, red flowers, more cocoa dust and even some cracked pepper.  There’s a nice earthy, almost balsamic, note hiding down deep and the finish is long and refreshing.  Drinking just about perfectly right now!

Andrea Oberto Nebbiolo Lange 2015 Product #31340 (In Stock)
Andrea Oberto Nebbiolo Lange 2015 Andrea Oberto Nebbiolo Lange 2015

Yes, it's dead young Nebbiolo and never saw a barrel.  But this rich, velvety, and fruit-filled "baby Barolo" is wildly delicious and fun to drink right now.  Roses, tar and cherry aromas lead to broad, rich, and very ripe red cherry, strawberry, crushed flower and earthy spice flavors.  Plenty of tannin, but it's sweet and supple and melts with food.  From young (8-10 year-old) vines in La Mora, this is a compelling introduction to Italy's greatest grape and will delight new explorers and hard-core Barolo fans alike.

Angeline Chardonnay Reserve 2016 Product #31955 (In Stock)

Here's a spicy Chardonnay value drawn from sites in Santa Barbara, coastal Mendocino, and the Russian River Valley.  You'll taste the quality of 2016's Chardonnay harvest here in the form of ripe pear, juicy peach, and tangy pineapple fruit.  Six months in 30% new oak barrels adds creaminess to the texture and a generous does of spice.  Everything comes together on the bold finish where green apple and spiced pear flavors sail along nicely.  Over-delivers for the money.

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

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Product #31238 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml

One bitterly cold morning in January 2014, Anton Bauer and his team got up before dawn and harvested the last Grüner Veltliner berries of the 2013 growing season.  The frozen berries were rushed to the winery and immediately pressed, releasing tiny amounts of super-sugar-laden juicy and leaving the still solid water behind.  The thick, viscous, juice went into tank where it slowly fermented until the yeast could do no more, bringing the wine to 12.5% alcohol and leaving a stunning amount of rich sweetness and bracing acidity behind.

Despite the 2014 harvest date, this is technically a 2013 vintage wine.  But whatever you call it, the wine is brilliant.  Rich and creamy with layers of apricot, peach and white fruit aromas and flavors, there's a touch of honey and caramel for depth and bracing, tangy, acidity for freshness.  Sits on your palate for minutes after each sip, this is a rare treat you won't want to miss.

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015

As the Post says, Austria's 2015s “are among the best white wines in the world in terms of value and quality, and they’re enjoying the best vintage in recent memory.”   Certainly, this is the best vintage of this stunning value single-vineyard Gruner to date!  There’s a refreshing salty brininess to the aromas here, along with fresh pear and meyer lemon. On the palate there’s a pleasing weightiness from that extra notch of ripeness 2015’s near perfect conditions brought that you wouldn’t expect from all those brisk, fresh aromas. That pear aroma takes on a lovely ripeness, and there’s a delicious ripe apple flavor as well, like biting into a fresh Honeycrisp. A refreshing, versatile white.

“Notes of crisp green pear and crunchy red apple are very appetizing, the palate is fresh and echoes these flavors and edges them with some spice and alcoholic heat, but also has a drive and energy of its own. Friendly and very moreish.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

The last vintage of Tony Bauer's Wagram region Pinot Noir pulled down a 93 point rating from Wine Enthusiast. This 2015 is better - WAAAY better.  Lush and rich on the nose and palate with deep black cherry and crushed raspberry fruit framed by smoky earth and sweet spice, this stays pure and vibrant right on through the long, complex, finish. Probably the finest Pinot Noir value in the store...Ever.

Just what you want in a versatile, keep a case or two on hand, everyday red.  It opens with aromas of dark black cherries, clove, fresh leather and dark flowers.  Then, in your mouth, it’s medium-bodied and very juicy fresh with nicely concentrated flavors of sweet cherry and strawberry accented by a dash of spice and red plum.  As you swallow, your mouth will start to water a bit as the sweet red fruit flavors go “bang” and linger nicely as notes of violets and just more fresh leather emerge over soft, easygoing, tannins.  A terrific pizza/pasta/party wine that’s priced to enjoy anytime or share with a crowd.
