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

Irv Bliss fell in love with Mendocino in the 1930s and purchased this estate sight unseen when he heard it was for sale.  The grandchildren make this kitchen sink blend in his honor, stirring together Primitivo, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Merlot, Barbera, Cab and Syrah to create a delicious  farmhouse red.  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.  A terrific pizza, pasta, party red!

Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Product #30627 (In Stock)
Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014

A great example of how refreshing and fun white Rioja can be when it's not too ripe or over-oaked.  Here 100% Viura sees no oak at all, and that lets the crisp, ripe, pear, apple, and stone fruit flavors shine through. The fruit pumps on through the generous finish where a touch of dusty stone adds interest. Try it with seafood, salads, or just warm afternoons!

Vina Galana Garnacha Tintorera 2014 Product #31687 (In Stock)
Vina Galana Garnacha Tintorera 2014 Vina Galana Garnacha Tintorera 2014

What the Spanish call Garnacha Tintorera, the French call Alicante Bouschet, the red-fleshed crossing of Garnacha and Petit Bouschet in 1866.  Here it's delivering plenty of Grenache-like fruit - think oven-warmed cherry and strawberry - with extra complexity from Bouschet's characteristic herbal, savory, character.  No oak here, so lots of ripe and juicy primary fruit that courses across your palate towards a chalky, dusty, finish.  Fun sipper and with food.

Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Product #31448 (In Stock)
Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014

A rarity here:  a nicely priced Ripasso that really does evoke Amarone character in a rich, crowd-pleasing, style.  Black berry, dried fruit, smoke and chocolate aromas and flavors lead the way.  There's good richness and plushness to the texture and a streak of chocolate and dried fruit that starts in the middle and flows on through the powerful, but supple, finish.

Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014 Product #31288 (In Stock)
Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014 Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014

If you’ve enjoyed Villa Medoro’s Tre Bicchieri Montepulciano, then Da Ma is definetly a wine you’ll want to try.  Made from Montepulciano grown on different sites from across the DOC zone, this is a terrific example of how Montepulciano can be both ripe and fresh at the same time.  It’s very fragrant with aromas of smoke, leather, and a touch of something earthy over ripe blackberry fruit.  Then big and mouthfilling and generous flavors of juicy blackberry, raspberry, cherry and even some strawberry and a touch more leather and smoke.  The fine, soft, tannins give this enough structure to stand up to meat but it’s a pretty delectable sipper, too.

Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Product #31458 (In Stock)
Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014

Our first thought on tasting this robust blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah was, "Wow - this tastes like a pretty darn good $25 red blend."  At better than 20% under that, it's better still!  Delivers a bold  mouthful of dark berry and black cherry fruit framed in generous French oak flavors (vanilla, chocolate, spice) and a smooth, rich, finish.  Perfect with roasts and steaks or just to sip.

Ryan Patrick Rock Island Red Columbia Valley 2014 Ryan Patrick Rock Island Red Columbia Valley 2014

This is the kind of bold, rich, and super-plush red blend that Washington does so well.  It's a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Syrah, 15% Merlot and 4% Primitivo, picked ripe and given a dark, chocolatey and spicy sheen by a year in 20% new American oak.  Creamy and smooth in texture with bold blackberry and black raspberry fruit with accents of lavender, cocoa and vanilla and a long, smooth, finish.

Because who didn't awake this morning and ponder, "What's a good Gaglioppo/Cab blend to enjoy tonight?"  Full, fleshy, fruity and finishing with a Gaglioppo tang.

""An elegant red, with sleek tannins and fresh acidity. A delicate skein of spice unravels through the flavors of raspberry pâte de fruit, thyme, mineral and dried fig. Drink now through 2021. 650 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Product #30729 (In Stock)
Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014

Terredora’s “basic” wine is a benchmark for classically styled Fiano, with loads of tropical fruit and a rich, full-bodied, texture balanced by mouthwatering acidity and laser-like focus.  Grapes harvested in the first 10 days of October ferment and age in steel including a few months on the lees.  The aromas and flavors are captivating if hard to describe:  flowers, pear, apricot, citrus, acacia, herb honey and toasted hazelnut notes weave in and out.  Brilliant stuff!

"Rich aromas of apple, herbs and flint. Very fresh and saline, showing a juicy mouthfeel and sneaky concentration to its stone fruit and herb flavors. Finishes with noteworthy persistence."   Vinous (D'Agata) 90+ points

Abbazia Di Novacella Kerner Praepositus 2014 Product #31876 (In Stock)
Abbazia Di Novacella Kerner Praepositus 2014 Abbazia Di Novacella Kerner Praepositus 2014

Indigenous to Alto Adige, Kerner is a natural cross between Schiava and Riesling. This is one of the best examples, with red and white fruit, good cut, and pretty lime and passion fruit notes on the finish.

"Intense tropical and exotic aromas of papaya, with dried pineapple and green mango too. Poached apples. On the palate, exuberantly textured but finishes completely dry. Full-bodied. Intense acidity. Kerner deserves respect. Beautiful white."  James Suckling 92 points

"Fragrant and polished, this radiant wine offers enticing scents of elderflower, yellow peach and aromatic herb. The elegantly structured palate delivers apricot, nectarine zest and a hint of white pepper, all framed in vibrant acidity."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2014 Product #31984 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2014 Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2014

The two vineyards in Santo Spirito were the last plots acquired by Terre Nere and are a bit further down Mount Etna's slopes than the estate's other vineyards.  The site's deep volcanic ash soils and slightly warmer microclimate help these 40-100 year-old vines develop superb richness and plushness of texture.  A year and a half in French oak rounds off tannins without adding overt oaky notes.  Utterly irresistible now and improving through 2024.

"This shows aromas of hot stones, dried raspberries and dried herbs. The palate is beautiful — light on its feet but with enough fruit, tannin and acidity to also show the intensity of the region. Incredible length that is followed throughout by fruit and texture. Drink now."  James Suckling 96 points

"Deep red. Fresh, very deep red cherry, almond paste, sweet spice and fresh herbs on the aromatic nose. Then vibrant, juicy and dense, showing a firm tannic backbone; lively but harmonious acidity extends the ripe deep red cherry and mineral flavors on the long, suave, complex back end. Very typical of the Santo Spirito cru. With its soft, fleshy, perfumed personality, this is readier to drink than some of the other crus from Terre Nere in 2014, but has the stuffing to age well."  Vinous (D'Agata) 94 points

Terre Nere Etna Rosso Prephylloxera Don Peppino 2014 Product #31985 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Rosso Prephylloxera Don Peppino 2014 Terre Nere Etna Rosso Prephylloxera Don Peppino 2014

LIMIT 2 BOTTLES PER CUSTOMER PLEASE!

Just as in the rest of Europe, when phylloxera came to Sicily in the early 20th Century it devastated most of the region's vineyards.  But two small plots of Nerello Mascalese on Mount Etna's steep slopes survived, probably because of their loose and ashy soils.  Today they sit just outside of Terre Nere's winery and since 2006 they have been bottled on their own - a testament to the power, complexity and finesse that only ultra-old (130 years) vines can give.  Drink from 2018 – 2030 or so.

"Extremely perfumed with plum and flower character. Hints of walnuts, too. Full body, a solid core of fruit and lots of spices. So much going here. Love the velvety texture, density and depth. Made from ancient vines." James Suckling 96 points

"Luminous red. Red cherry, marzipan, raspberry jam, quinine, blood orange and a dusting of powdered minerals on the drop-dead gorgeous nose. Wonderfully juicy, sweet and gripping in the mouth, showing superb nuance and verve to the soft, fleshy red fruit, candied violet and balsamic flavors. Finishes vibrant and with noteworthy length; broad but polished tannins coat the entire mouth. An Etna Rosso of memorable purity and precision, this is great to drink already but promises greater things still to come. Made from a parcel of old pre-phylloxeric vines that grow in the Calderara Sottana vineyard (one row of which actually grows in the Santo Spirito cru), but at 100+ years of age, the Don Peppino vines are much older than those used for the Calderara Sottana bottling. In fact, this wine is a textbook example of the importance of old vines, because as delightful as the Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso is, the Don Peppino is vastly superior due to its softer, nobler tannins and greater depth and complexity of fruit."  Vinous (D'Agata) 96+ points

En Numeros Vermells Classic Priorat Negre 1.5l 2014 Product #31055 (In Stock)

Silvia Puig made just 827 bottles of our favorite all-around Priorat red in the cool, fresh, 2014 vintage.  It's a blend of 65% Garnatxa, 30% Syrah, and 5% Carinyena fermented in open-top 300 liter and 500 liter French oak and then aged 13 months in those same barrels (with the tops back on).  The vintage gives this more energy and zip than previous releases, but there's no shortage of pure Priorat power.

Big, classically Priorat, aromas of spice, chocolate, blackberry, raspberry and baked plum really jump from the glass.  In the mouth it's rich and ripe with oodles of blue-black fruit, more chocolate and spice, and accents of tangy blueberry, blood orange and pomegranate.  Chewy and dense right on through the very long finish with notes of blackberry, plum, and flambéed cherries lingering on and on.  This will drink young and repay 10-15 years in cellar.
