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!  Just $26.38 when you buy two cases!

“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

Amalie Robert Pinot Meunier 2015 Product #32607 (In Stock)
Amalie Robert Pinot Meunier 2015 Amalie Robert Pinot Meunier 2015

A "failed" experiment (well, "abandoned," anyway) with sparkling wine left Ernie Pink and Dena Drews with a few acres of Pinot Meunier that's just too good to abandon.  So they make this delicious red from it - based on the huge 92 point rating for the 2014, it's one of the finest still red Pinot Meuniers in the world!

The 2015 picks up where that stunner left off. This is a pretty wine in the glass, with a translucent red brick color you can easily see through.  Inviting aromas of red cherry, sweet strawberry, and candied rose petal pull you in to ripe, vibrant, flavors of bitter cherry, crushed raspberry, and a beguiling floral/anise note on the finish.  Nice tension between the sweet fruit and tart acids and just enough fine tannin to make this easy to enjoy with all kinds of food.

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.

Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016 Product #32331 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016 Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016

Two-time Austrian “Winemaker of the Year” Anton Bauer's Rosé Feuersbrunn (named for the Wagram town where it’s grown) has always been tasty but the 2016 edition reaches some very high heights indeed.  It looks even better with the pink label you’ll find here (vs. the black text on other export bottles), so we bought enough to get some labeled just for you and to bring the price down to rock-bottom levels, too!

Rosé Feuersbrunn 2016 starts with one of Austria’s own red grapes – Zweigelt – for bright fruit and then adds Austrian up-and-commers Merlot and Syrah for depth and complexity.  It’s a pretty, assertive, pink in the glass with bold aromas of ripe watermelon, fresh strawberry, summer flowers and just picked herb.  On the palate it’s broad and full of watermelon, strawberry and redcurrant fruit with lively accents of tangerine oil and lemon zest.  The flavors really fill your mouth with satisfaction before a lip-smacking, crisp, finish of cranberry, watermelon and herb pops and lingers on.  Definitely a delight right now, but hold onto a few bottles – it will be better still at Thanksgiving and next spring!

Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016 Product #32544 (In Stock)
Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016 Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016

Grechetto is best known as a (all too small) part of Umbria's Orvieto, but it's so delicious that it's well worth showcasing on its own!  This is 100% Grechetto done in tank and it really bursts with fresh, vibrant, aromas of stone fruit with subtle almond accents.  On the palate it's full of stone fruit and passion fruit flavors with a sophisticated texture and crisp, lemon/peach and mineral finish. Sure it's fun to sip and will shine with all kinds of seafood, but try it with turkey, grilled veggies and - especially - linguini with clam sauce!

Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv Product #29046 (In Stock)
Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv

"The non-vintage RWC Baltimore Rainwater (bottled January 2012) was designed to reintroduce Rainwater as a prestige style rather than the cheaper, paler versions of years gone by. Its template was a Rainwater that Mannie Berk tasted from the 1820s. It has a light lanolin, melted candle wax, dried fig and orange blossom-scented bouquet that expands nicely with aeration. The palate is crisp and light on the entry, with a vibrant citric thread that combines succinctly with bitter orange and mandarin notes. It is laced with a touch of toffee towards the elegant finish. This is delicate, understated and delicious."Wine Advocate 89 points

Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Product #30731 (In Stock)
Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012

As Wine Advocate said in late 2013, “If you can name but two producers in Valpolicella (I’m betting they are Dal Forno and Quintarelli), it’s now time to add a third: Lorenzo Begali.”  Begali’s Amarone isn’t quite as hefty as Dal Forno and is much cleaner and less rustic than Quintarelli, but we agree that the quality-levels are very similar – even if the prices are about 80% less!

Soaring aromas of dried black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry are framed by subtle notes of oak, tobacco and chocolate.  On the palate the wine is amazingly pure, clean, and fresh – even at 15.5% abv! – with layers and layers of rich fresh fruit, dried berry and raisin, crushed flower, dark chocolate, cured tobacco, and sweet spice.  Plenty of Amarone richness and power, for sure, but with impeccable balance and silkiness of texture and perfectly integrated alcohol.  The juicy, fruit and spice-filled finish sails on over ripe tannins with berry and raisin flavors lingering on and on.  Put some away to enjoy with warming winter meals but don’t hesitate to pop a bottle now to pair with ribs, brisket, or any other rich food off the grill.

A classy, elegant rose from one of Champagne's most important producers.

"Light orange. Vibrant strawberry and orange zest aromas are complicated by notes of tea rose, smoky lees and chalky minerals. Bright, incisive red fruit flavors pick up a toasty nuance with air. Fresh, incisive and refreshingly tangy, with impressive finishing clarity and stony persistence."International Wine Cellar 92 points

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!

Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016 Product #32313 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016 Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016

If you enjoy the rich texture of barrel fermented Chardonnay but crave a bit of Sauvignon Blanc’s citrus fruit, cut, and refreshment during warm Summer months, this delicious, barrel aged, Viura is going to delight.  It's a simply delicious white Rioja that’s bursting with fresh lemon zest, apricot, and lime fruit around a core of lemon custard plus just a touch of exotic fresh coconut nuance.  Give it a little air, and notes of dried grapefruit, beeswax, and honeysuckle emerge on the nose and more citrus peel and spicy ginger come out on the palate and juicy, refreshing, finish.  Every vintage reviewed by Vinous has earned 90 or 91 points - and this is the best yet. Crazy complex and delicious for the price.

Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years Product #32122 (In Stock)
Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years Bodegas Tradicion Cream Sherry VOS 20 Years

This fairly young Sherry house has rapidly established itself as the benchmark for wildly complex, deeply flavored, sherry's based on old wines and no limited filtration.  This is a blend of young PX into 30 year-old Oloroso and transforms all ideas of what "Cream" Sherry can be. Rich and deep, it's loaded with plump raisin fruit, nutty complexity and accents of coffee, orange blossom, toffee and more.  Finishes with a zip of acidity that pulls you back.  A stunning wine to drink like you would the finest Tawny Port.

Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years Product #32123 (In Stock)
Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado Sherry VORS 30 Years

One of the greatest "wood" Sherry's we've ever tasted, this is what happens when the flor on Amontillado dies early and lets the wine darken to Oloroso levels - and then gets aged for 30 years in American oak cask.  A lovely touch of Amontillado white fruit with the caramel and toasted nut richness of Oloroso sherries elevated by a lift of Fino-like acidity and salty mineral. Simply stunning and quite rare.

"Riveting, with dried orange peel, powdered clove, Brazil nut, juniper and green tea notes attached to a live wire of acidity. The long, focused finish leaves a mouthwatering echo."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Boekenhoutskloof Wolftrap Red 2016 Boekenhoutskloof Wolftrap Red 2016

Pay attention to the "South Africa" origin or not as you please.  This wine speaks a global language:  YUM.  Rich, ripe, Syrah gives this deep fruit while powerful Mourvedre adds earthy complexity and grip.  The touch of Viognier fermented with the Syrah lifts the aromas and keeps things fresh. A lightly smoky note calls out  for grilled or roasted foods. Fun stuff at a party, too.

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Product #28953 (In Stock)
Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut NV Product #3165 (In Stock)
Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut NV Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut NV

As always, a mature style showing brioche, hazelnut, toffee, and butter scents and delivering a powerful, rich, palate with an firm finish.

"One of Bollinger’s great assets is a massive stock of reserve wine, including 600,000 magnums held under cork. Gilles Descôtes tends those reserves, working with the blending team to subsume the variations of the current vintage into Bollinger’s Special Cuvée by using a majority of reserve wines in the blend. The result is a rich and harmonious Champagne with deep reserves of flavor. Its substantial, formal structure feels polished, its flavors balancing the cool earthiness of a limestone cave and the sunnier, bright floral notes of fresh cream. Built for food, whether emphasizing the freshness with lobster bisque, or the depth with beef Wellington and chanterelles."Wine & Spirits 93 points

"Aromatic, with accents of bread dough, smoked almond and crème de cassis, this creamy Champagne is lightly chalky in texture and framed by firm acidity, with flavors of glazed apricot, orange blossom and rich hints of clover honey and coffee liqueur. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 93 points

The "Superiore" designation has to do with place and farming, but we'd award a "superior" rating to the wine you'll find in your glass!  This is a classy, stylish, Prosecco with a creamy, rich, texture and soft, easy, bubbles.  Aromas and flavors of wisteria, ripe yellow pear, lemon pulp and just a hint of honeysuckle draw you in and the lingering citrus/herb flavors and crisp, clean, finish will keep you coming back for more.  Fun, festive and delicious.

Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2015 Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2015

The world's most under-valued great white wine could just be Muscadet - the bone-dry, stony, green-fruited Loire Valley white that folks keep confusing with sweet/perfumy "Muscat."  The grape is actually Melon de Bourgogne and it gives a tart, green apple and lime zest, wine that needs a few months resting on the lees to develop matching richness and depth.  This one's delicious for now-2025 (really!) and crazy cheap for the quality.

"Last tasted in late July 2016 on the eve of what was to be the first of multiple bottlings, this is a bit closed on the nose but displays infectious juiciness of apple, lime and honeydew melon mingled with iodine, crushed stone and mineral salts, leading to a vibrant, consummately refreshing, palate-staining finish."  Vinous (Schlidnecht) 92-93 points

Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978 Product #26993 (In Stock)
Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978 Broadbent Boal Madeira 1978

Very rare and limited.

"The 1978 Boal was aged in oak casks until bottling in February 2011. Compared directly against the Terrantez, the Boal does not quite have the same degree of complexity and harmony. It politely requests time to “tuck in its shirt” and “straighten its tie”. After several hours it offers scents of smoked walnut, a touch of peat, marmalade and furniture polish. The palate is very harmonious and seems to have more composure and refinement than the aromatics: cracked black pepper on the entry that reluctantly gives way to honey, bitter orange, marjoram and Clementine. It is not a heavyweight Boal, erring more towards Terrantez in terms of perceived sweetness, although it is graceful and elegant from start to finish."Wine Advocate 92 points

Very limited and rare.

"The dazzling 1978 Terrantez is aged in oak for its entire life and bottled by Justino in February 2011. Deep mahogany with a degraded tawny rim, it offers a glorious bouquet of smoked walnut, English ale, peat moorland and dried honey that is very well-defined and seems to expand with continual aeration over three to four hours. The palate is generous on the entry with sweet, tangy Seville orange marmalade, quince, cumin and Indian spices embroidered into a viscous texture that errs towards Bual in style. It is a powerful Terrantez with hubris, yet knows not to go too far. This is a sublime expression of the grape variety."Wine Advocate 95 points
