Dom De Chantepierre Cotes Du Rhone 2015 Product #31701 (In Stock)
Dom De Chantepierre Cotes Du Rhone 2015 Dom De Chantepierre Cotes Du Rhone 2015

From the fine co-op in Tavel, this GSM blend shows off Tavel's best grape - Mourvedre - with style.  The aromas are rich, earthy, and loaded with garrigue and dark black fruit.  The dark blackberry and black raspberry fruit forms the core of the palate, with more of Mourvedre's classic earth and garrigue tones adding interest and a nice dose of firm tannin at the end.  Old-school fun.

Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Product #31862 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015

If you're looking for subtle, elegant, sophisticated California Cabernet...then look elsewhere.  Because this is rowdy, pumped up, boldly fruited, vanilla and chocolate-laced Cab with French oak spice and a finish as plump as a feather pillow.  Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela created the Rubus label so he could find under-appreciated fruit in great growing regions and turn it into crowd-pleasing wines a wallet-delighting prices.  This is the best we've tasted in the series, with good heft (at just 13.5% abv) and oodles of chocolate-covered cherry fruit and sweet oak spice.  Soft enough to sip at a casual cookout, bold enough to enjoy with burgers, steaks or lamb, and affordable enough to share with a crowd.

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

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

Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014 Product #30930 (In Stock)
Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014 Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014

Corbieres, in the heart of the Languedoc, is famous for turning rich, herb-scented, wines with plenty of heft and fruit - if sometimes a bit too much earthiness and chew.  Here, the team from Ch St Martin de la Garrigue crafts a juicy red that offers up all the good parts of Corbieres with none of the flaws.  It's a blend of Grenache (40%), Syrah (35%) and Cargignan (25%) picked nice and ripe - but not overripe! - and made carefully in tank.

You'll find plenty of the scents and flavors that make Corbieres so much fun - dark raspberry, ripe blueberry, and a big handful of fresh pine and herb - along with a satisfying smoky/meaty depth.  Carignan's bright blueberry fruit keeps things fresh and adds a nice touch of minerality to the fruit and herb-laced finish.  Fine, easy-drinking, fun at your next cookout or casual meal.

Dom Gres St Vincent Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2015 Product #31080 (In Stock)
Dom Gres St Vincent Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2015 Dom Gres St Vincent Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2015

From a unique, organic co-op in the Rhone valley, this delicious, Grenache-based blend delivers satisfying weight and earthiness but stays light on its feet. Unlike many co-ops that blend growers' fruit into one wine, here each makes their own. Though the blend is dominated by Grenache, the Syrah takes center stage on the nose, with classic notes of liquorice, black fruits, and a wonderful whiff of violets.

In the mouth luscious ripe black raspberry and blackberry dance with notes of coffee, olive, and garrigue.  The wine is ripe and full of fruit, but also vibrant and fresh from beginning to end.  Zingy, almost bubbling, fruit acids and fine tannins make this refreshing and a great wine for table.  Ripe, vivid, pure.

Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Product #31175 (In Stock)
Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015

"Tire Bouchon" is the French phrase for a corkscrew, but the literal translation is better:  Cork Puller.  And you're going to pull a lot of these corks this fall and winter! This is a throw-back (in terms of both time and how you'll drink it!) red made from Grenache, Syrah, and 10% old-timey Aramon and Oeillade Noire.  While it's all grown in Adrien Roustan's Vacqueyras vineyards, the old grapes aren't allowed, so it's bottled as Vin de France.  The winemaking is pretty old school, too.  All the grapes are tossed into the vat together, covered with some dry ice, and allowed to start fermentation as they will.  10 days in the fermenter, a few months resting in tank, and then ready for you to slurp!

It's friendly from the first sniff, with open, generous, aromas of crushed black raspberries, sweet cherry, violets, and a hint of ripe black olive.  Take a sip and let the party begin!  This wine just oozes sweet, fresh, very ripe red and black cherry/berry fruit with a touch of cracked pepper, lavender and rich loamy earth for complexity.  Juicy and mouthwatering, but not at all tart, with a bit of Black Forest cake (chocolate and sweet cherry) coming up on the supple, lingering, finish.  Sure, it's going to go swell with all kinds of casual foods - burgers, hot dogs, pizza, stews - but it will shine most brightly when shared with (soon to be very happy) friends!

Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Product #31306 (In Stock)
Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015

Here's a real winner in the "A Lot of Wine For The Money: Cab Division."  This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown at 2,300 feet elevation, where plenty of sunshine ripens the fruit to rich perfection and cool night air locks in freshness and vibrancy.  You'll love the big Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco, and chocolate.  In the mouth, it's ripe and densely packed with currant, cherry, black raspberry spice and chocolate flavors.  There's a nice herb and chocolate complexity here, but the fruit really holds center stage.  Big enough for steak or lamb, but easygoing enough to just drink at a party or on the deck, this is outstanding value in rich, drinkable, Cab.

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.

"Opaque ruby. Heady cherry, dark berry, vanilla and violet pastille qualities on the oak-spiced nose. At once rich and lively; a firm spine of acidity provides lift to ripe cassis, blueberry and vanilla flavors. Closes with gentle tannic grip and good persistence, leaving dark fruit and licorice notes behind." Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

Poppy's a pretty much perfect Paso party cab.  No, it's not terribly serious, but the boisterous fruit, smoky oak, and sweet spice aromas and flavors are forward and ready to play. Juicy and fleshy on the palate with smooth, supple, tannins and a nice lash of black fruit, smoke and spice on the smooth, fresh, finish.  Easy drinking fun.

Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2014 Product #31608 (In Stock)
Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2014 Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2014

Last year we brought you Damien Rozier’s outstanding Plan de Dieu 2012, a terrific, gutsy, Cotes du Rhone from the pebbly soils of one of the Southern Rhone’s most underappreciated regions.  Now we’re featuring his Cotes du Rhone Villages 2014 and we know it’s going to thrill you just as much!  It’s a robust blend of hand-harvested Grenache plus Mourvedre and Syrah with a bit of time in neutral wood casks.  But mainly it’s a ton of fun in your glass.

Big aromas of purple fruits – plum, berries, dark cherries – lead to juicy and fruit-filled flavors of crushed blue and black berries, sweet cherry, licorice and classic Rhone pepper and garrigue.  There’s a nice dose of fine-grained tannin here, making this a terrific match for casual foods, but more than enough suppleness and fruit to be enjoyable all on its own.  Ready to go tonight and sure to get even better over the next couple of years, this is a joyful wine to warm up any cold winter night.

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.

The powerful, rich, wines of Languedoc's Minervois region can be overlooked - but don't miss this one!  With 60% Syrah as it's base (plus Carignan, Grenache and Mourvedre), it's all about inky, smoky, meaty richness.  Dark black plum and berry fruit with accents of grilled meat, cracked pepper, black olive, and Mourvedre's distinctive earthiness.  Firm and rich and a great wine for grilled lamb and savory pork.

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015 Product #31905 (In Stock)
Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015

Nothing super fancy here - just a really, really, good Cotes du Rhone at a great value price to enjoy with everything from burgers to lamb chops.  About half Grenache with 30% Syrah and then equal parts Carignan and Cinsault, mostly from vines planted in the 1920s and 1930s by former owner Count de Regis de Gatimel.  Most of the luscious, ripe, fruit ferments and ages in tank but part of the Syrah sees barrel to add richness and depth.

In the fantastic 2015 vintage, Segries Cotes du Rhone gushes with aromas and flavors of black berries, chocolate covered cherry, and "garrigue" - the blend of scrub pine, thyme, lavender, juniper and rosemary that provide the unique scent of Provnencal hills and vineyards. After it’s been open a bit, the aromas and flavors get even better with notes of crushed raspberry, lavender and cracked pepper  joining the party.  The bold fruit cloaks the ripe, velvety, tannins, making this as much fun to drink on its own as it is to put out on the dinner table.  A winner for now – 2020 and a strong candidate for Red Wine Value Of The Year!

Bliss Family Blissful Red Blend 2014 Product #32003 (In Stock)
Bliss Family Blissful Red Blend 2014 Bliss Family Blissful Red Blend 2014

While “Blissful Red” is play on this winegrowing family’s name, it’s also a pretty good description of how you’ll feel about this old fashioned “mixed blacks” blend at a very “old school” California price!  Irv Bliss fell in love with California’s Central Coast during a visit in the 1930s and then – a few years later – purchased this 450 acre Medocino estate at auction sight unseen.  Today his grandchildren continue to farm grapes here, selling some of their crop and – just like Irv – making a bit of wine for family, friends – and you!

Back in 1930s California, the notion of planting a vineyard to a single grape varietal was just getting started, so Irv followed in local tradition and planted his field to a mixture of grapes that had historically done well in the region.  This wine is an homage to Irv, blending Primitivo, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Merlot, Barbera, Cab and Syrah to create a delicious “kitchen sink” red blend.  It's nice and dark and full of ripe, spicy, fruit - think briary raspberry, blackberry and cherry - with a hint of herb and Italian structure.  A great gush of cherry fruit, earth, smoke and spice pops on the juicy finish.  At just 13.5% alcohol (and a great sale price), it’s definitely the kind of wine you can enjoy all day long with pasta, pizza, burgers, sausages, and lots and lots of friends!
