Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Product #31694 (In Stock)
Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015

There’s nothing not to like and everything to love about this robust blend of 50% Carignan, 35% Grenache, and 15% Syrah from the barren hills of Laguedoc’s Corbieres region.  Generous aromas of crushed blackberry, black plum, cracked pepper, cocoa, warm stones and more jump from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how the briary blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit coat your mouth and the accents of chocolate, stone, herb and pepper give extra complexity.  While the flavors are big and the texture rich, there’s a welcome dose of juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins that make this refreshing drunk solo and flexible at table, too.

"What could be a hidden gem in the vintage, the 2015 Corbières Col des Vents is 50% Carignan, 30% Grenache and 20% Syrah that’s aging all in tank. A big, sexy, fruit-loaded effort, it offers a liquid blackberry like style of fruit as well as crushed herbs, pepper and a hint of earth. It should drink nicely right out of the gate."Wine Advocate 87-89 points

Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Product #32704 (In Stock)
Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015

The kind of wine Languedoc does best - a great all-purpose, no oak, quaffer made from 60% Grenache (for ripe red fruit) and 40% Syrah (for meaty, smoky, accents). Dark red raspberry fruit holds center stage with hints of blackberry and savory notes of pepper and black olive for interest.  Juicy and easy drinking with a fun, mouthwatering, finish.  Tastes like $15 - and a good $15 red at that!

Ferraton Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Samorens 2016 Ferraton Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Samorens 2016

Here's a delicious white Rhone from a biodynamic working in a great, great, vintage. A blend of Grenach Blanc and Clairette, made all in stainless steel tank.  Big aromas and flavors of peach, white flowers, and lime with a dusting of white pepper and crushed bitter mineral providing support on the mouthwatering finish. Concentrated, but not heavy, it's lovely to sip and will sing with fish or salads.

Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2016 Product #32907 (In Stock)
Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2016 Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2016

Kind of an old-school South-of-France red here with a bit of modern polish.  The blend is old-timey with 40% Grenache, 40% Caladoc, 10% Syrah and 10% Marselan all done in tank.  You'll certainly taste the warm, sunshiny, climate here in ripe plum and black raspberry fruit and there's a nice dose of black olive, thyme and lavender, too.  But the flavors stay as fresh as a daisy right on through the dusty, lightly chewy, finish.  Great all-purpose bistro red at a fine, weeknight, price.

Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015 Product #31989 (In Stock)
Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015 Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015

SUPER VALUE ALERT!  Lirac is a lot like Chateauneuf but softer and more sweetly fruited.  And this is a top, prime, delicious example at a great price. Smells like Lirac with baked strawberry and red cherry on the nose with hints of flowers and warm tone.  Then it's more fresh then you'd expect on the palate with ripe strawberry and black cherry fruit and an exotic lilac note for complexity.  Nice and dusty on the finish where stone, fruit, and floral flavors linger.

"Youthful violet. Smoke-tinged black and blue fruit and licorice scents show good focus and a subtle hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and smooth in the mouth, offering fresh cherry and blueberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Shows good breadth and cling on the spicy finish, which is shaped by dusty tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points

Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2016 Product #32637 (In Stock)
Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2016 Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2016

Well, now.  This is a whole lot of wine for under $20.  It's about 45% each Grenache  and Syrah plus 10% Carignan, all grown on slopes along the Agly Valley.  The gneiss and schist soils are very free draining, forcing the vines to really drive their roots down and pick up plenty of Roussillon's classic minerality to go with the dark fruit and lavender notes.  For all the richness, this is very poised and pure and while it will be lovely right now with lamb or beef it's likely to be better still in 2018.

"An inky colored effort, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut offers a beautiful freshness and purity as well as fabulous notes of jammy blackberries, violets, pepper and hints of leather. Rich, concentrated and tasting like it costs four times the price, drink it over the coming 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 89-91 points

Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Product #31897 (In Stock)
Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016

Since the 2001 vintage first appeared in the store years ago, Dragon Rosé has been a consistent customer and staff favorite year after year.  The Lienard family tends about 50 acres of vines in Provence and makes this from Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache, and a nice dose of Rolle grown just for pink wine.  Grapes are grown specifically for rosé and are harvested at the perfect balance of fresh fruit and juicy acidity.  Once in the winery, they are lightly crushed and allowed to pick up a just right touch of pink color and red berry flavor before pressing and finishing fermentation in cool stainless steel tanks.  A lovely match for everything from grilled salmon to Salade Niçoise and delightful to sip on its own.

"Editors' Choice Located at the base of the Sainte-Victoire mountain, this vineyard, owned by the Dragon family for four generations, has produced a ripe wine, full-bodied and with concentration. It has raspberry flavors and a touch of spice that gives the wine extra richness."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Now Presenting Paso Robles Red 2014 Product #32590 (In Stock)
Now Presenting Paso Robles Red 2014 Now Presenting Paso Robles Red 2014

The classic Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre first gained New World fame in Australia.  But they do it darn well in California, too, especially in the very Rhone-like vineyards of Paso Robles.  A big, ripe, rich wine that gets an extra layer of polish and spice from French oak aging, it's a perfect cookout and party red with a just right touch of flash.

"Top 100 Values of 2017! This is quite a dynamic and layered wine, especially for the bargain price, with deep and hearty blackberry, caramel, rust, lavender and potpourri on the nose. The berry-led palate is rustic and unrefined, with feral flavors, peppery spice and decent acidity."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015 Product #31661 (In Stock)
Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015 Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015

"The Little Spencer" is the "fun" wine from this respected Corbieres estate in the heart of sunny Languedoc.  It's a blend of 50% Carignan plus 20% Mourvedre and 15% each Syrah and Grenache, all grown in a natural amphitheater that gives and extra dose of ripeness. This tastes and feels like a more expensive wine with deep, rich, blue/black fruit, complex accents of hot stone, licorice, and garrigue and a nicely chewy finish.  Fun stuff especially with rustic, herb-laced, foods.

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2013 Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2013

"Spice- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cracked pepper. Spicy, energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open up slowly with air. Distinctly northern Rhône in personality and texture, featuring a peppery, floral-dominated finish, smooth tannins and excellent closing thrust and persistence. The quality of this bottling consistently outpaces its price and appellation, and that's especially true in this vintage."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

In 2016, this happy, eager to please, Cotes du Rhone opens up with fresh aromas of blackberry, currant, cracked pepper, lavender and a hint of smoke.  On the palate it’s medium-bodied and pumps out flavors of just-picked raspberry and blackberry, cranberry, and a touch of crumbled dry herb.  It finishes with a big burst of tangy raspberry, black pepper, and red plum, mouthwatering and thirst quenching and with just enough dusty tannin to stand up to pizza, nachos, sausages, fried chicken, or the casual fun-food of your choice!

Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016 Product #32074 (In Stock)
Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016 Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016

We love Bandol rosé, but the most famous wines of this sunny region on the Mediterranean Sea are a) hardly ever available; and b) cost $30+.  So tasting real Bandol pink that sells for under $20 ...well, we think you'll agree it's a treat! The aromas and flavors are classic Provence, with tangy strawberry, sweet peach and tart raspberry fruit complicated by notes of orange peel and fruit blossoms. The classic blend of Mourvedre and Grenache gives the wine plenty of mouthfilling heft - making this a great rose for food! - while tangy acids, a handfull of crushed herb and a bone dry finish keep things fresh and all around delicious.

Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Product #32260 (In Stock)
Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016

Another lovely vintage for this classy Rhone white that puts many (much more expensive) Chateauneuf-du-Pape whites to shame.  As always, it’s about half Viognier for peachy fruit and fragrance plus Grenache blanc for body and Marsanne for complexity and minerality.

The excitement starts on the nose, where you’ll find generous aromas of creamy peach, fruit blossom, Clementine and crushed chalk. Take a sip, and you'll experience an explosion of bright apricot, yellow peach, honeysuckle and mint flavors up front before chalk, wet stone, and peach skin notes emerge at the end. The juicy acids keep this rich, medium-bodied, white fresh and make it a great choice for drinking as an aperitif, with cheeses, or with grilled fish and fruit salsa.  It will age surprisingly well if you can keep your hands off it now!

Dom Notre Dame Des Pallieres Sablet CdR Villages 2015 Product #32766 (In Stock)

Here's a bold, rich, very meaty, Rhone red from a Gigondas estate working in the up-and-coming village of Sablet. 60% Grenache gives this plenty of fleshy, baked raspberry, fruit at the core. But the 40% Syrah really sings out, adding dark blackberry and plum notes to the baked raspberry fruit and a savory, meaty, element ot the firm finish.  Deep, spicy and rich and a very fine value.

Dom Philippe Plantevin Cdr Villages Cairanne 2012 Dom Philippe Plantevin Cdr Villages Cairanne 2012

There's nothing shy about this intense, powerful, blend of Grenache (60%) and Syrah (40%) from the warm 2012 Rhone vintage.  Bold aromas of dark black cherry, black raspberry, leather, roasted meat, and more jump from the glass.  On the palate, it's as rich and luxurious as a top-notch Chateauneuf du Pape with layered flavors of kirsch, cherry, black plum, pepper, and sweet spice.  For all its ripeness and power, the texture is sophisticated and silky with juicy acids and very fine-grained, ripe, tannins. It's the most polished and refined version of this, Philippe Plantevin's top wine, we've ever tasted.  While it will certainly delight right now with rich meals, the wine will gain even more complexity and earthy depth over the next 10+ years.

"Upfront, forward notes of sweet cassis, blackberry, wood spice and vanilla, as well as an impressively textured and layered palate. Seamless, elegant and sexy, this modern styled blend of Grenache and Syrah (aged in 20% new oak) should be ready to go on release and have 7-8 years of longevity."Wine Advocate 88-90 points

Take a great vintage and one of the Southern Rhone's cooler, more limestone-laced, terriors and add in the no-nonsense winemaking of Phlippe Plantevin and you get this very special, very delicious, 2015 Visan.  A blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 2% Mourvedre made in tank, this really pops in the glass - visually (brilliant deep purple) and on the nose - crushed raspberry, blueberry, violet and chocolate.  On the palate it's the most vivid, energetic, of Philippe's wines and the tangy Carignan blueberry enlivens deep crushed raspberry and blackberry fruit.  A hint of spice and herb add complexity to the flavors and the juicy, finessed, finish drives ripe fruit, earth, and floral flavors across your palate with fine length.  Delicious already and gaining richness over the next 5-8 years, this is superb value.
