Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Product #32816 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013

Here's an outstanding value from little-known Calatayud in Spain that will do just as well on the bar for a party as it will with roasted meats or robust sausage.  It's based on 85% Garnacha from 40-50 year old bush-trained vines that have to dig deep into their non-irrigated soils for water and nutrients.  About 7% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo add structure and some black fruit notes and a dash of Syrah give meaty spice.

The 2012 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites, and the new vintage cranks up the intensity and depth even more.  The aromas are robust and fresh, with generous dollops of raspberry, violet and spice (just from the grapes - no oak used at all!).  The flavors follow with more raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, hints of dark chocolate and more spice.  With air, the fruit gets darker and richer, but a touch of citrusy acid and light, crisp, tannins keeps things fresh even as complex flavors of balsamic and baked strawberry linger.  Supple enough for a party, structured enough for most anything you’ll pull off the grill, and a steal of a deal, too!

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Product #30794 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2013

Here's our single best-selling Italian wine of the past five years - a fantastic value that tastes like it costs twice as much as it does. The wine is mainly (70%) Sangiovese and delivers plenty of that variety's juicy black cherry fruit. But, the 20% Merlot in the blend rounds out the mid-palate and keeps the wine soft while the secret ingredient -- 10% Sagrantino -- adds spice and complexity uncommon in Umbrian wines. Sure, it goes well with pizza and robust pasta sauces, but there's enough going on to handle game and hard, salty, cheeses and a soft enough finish just to drink at a party. Fantastic value.

High Note Andes Red Blend Mendoza 2013 Product #32047 (In Stock)
High Note Andes Red Blend Mendoza 2013 High Note Andes Red Blend Mendoza 2013

"Bright, medium-deep red. Expressive aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice; there's something Napa-like about the glossy torrefaction notes. Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, with a pliant texture giving this wine plenty of early appeal. But the dark fruit flavors are nicely supported by substantial ripe, oak-influenced tannins. Delivers good stuffing for the price."   Vinous (Raynolds) 88 points

Clos Siguier Cahors 2013 Product #31338 (In Stock)
Clos Siguier Cahors 2013 Clos Siguier Cahors 2013

A blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat from 60 year-old vines that's fermented in tank and allowed to rest and soften in old casks.  Dark, tangy, and honest with sour cherry fruit, crushed herb, and loads of minerality.  Not Mendoza fruity, but not the impenetrable "black wine" that made Cahors famous in the 1300s. Firm on the finish and perfect for stew or roasts.

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2013 Product #31706 (In Stock)
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

Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml

Another classic release for this pioneer of Oregon's Chehalem mountains. A bit richer and broader than in some releases - 2013 was warm before the late rains - with a pretty note of smoky oak.

"Fresh and expressive, light-footed and generous, with cherry, plum and apricot flavors, coming together smoothly on the open-textured finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Mcnab Ridge Petit Sirah Mendocino Co 2013 Product #32873 (In Stock)
Mcnab Ridge Petit Sirah Mendocino Co 2013 Mcnab Ridge Petit Sirah Mendocino Co 2013

Sometimes you just want a big ole mouthful of purple fruit, spiced oak, and dusty tannins to enjoy with BBQ ribs, steak or a Tuesday night.  That's what this delivers in spades at a very fine value price for Petite Sirah.  Bold aromas and flavors of mulberry, blackberry, and black plum with dashes of cracked pepper and sweet spice show on the nose and in the mouth.  There's enough dusty tannin to know it's Petite Sirah, but nothing that gets in the way of the smooth finish and casual sipping.

Jonata The Paring Red 2013 Product #31864 (In Stock)

An intense blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (20%) plus Cab Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged in barrel for 22 months. Lots of tobacco, dark chocolate and spice notes surround a core of dark fruit and savory olive.  Delicious now and over the next 5 years.

"The 2013 Red is bold and pungent to the core. Black cherry, mocha, black olives, spices, lavender and sage hit the palate in the 2013. This is an especially serious, structured wine for the money. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The Franc is felt in the wine's savory, expressive personality. This is a delicious wine for the money."  Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

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

Here's a dark and chocolaty Bordeaux blend with sweet currant and red raspberry fruit framed by notes of earth and expensive tasting oak. A great match for lamb and savory beef dishes!

"A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot that matured in new French oak barriques for one year. The nose shows herbal aromas, notes of blackberries and a very faint note of leather, licorice and fountain pen ink. It has a similar character to the Petit Hipperia from the same vintage. The palate is dry, medium-bodied with some rusticity, dusty tannins and a tasty finish."Wine Advocate 90 points

A stylish, velvety, Vacqueyras loaded with deep red fruit.

"Spicy dark berry and cherry pit on the smoke-accented nose; zesty minerality adds vibrancy. Sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and gentle sweetness, and a jolt of zesty acidity adds lift and bite. Closes smooth, smoky and long, with repeating spiciness; fine-grained tannins add shape."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico Riserva Giuliano 2013 Product #32013 (In Stock)
Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico Riserva Giuliano 2013 Castello La Leccia Chianti Classico Riserva Giuliano 2013

Full confession – we’re not normally fans of Italian “Riserva” wines.  Even though most use the estate’s best fruit, the extra time in oak (up to a year) often dries the wine out, kills the fruit, and gives sticky, drying, tannins that rob the wines of all their fun.  Here, though, we have a Chianti Classico Riserva that soars above the norm in every way!

Francesco Daddi made the first vintage in 2012 in honor of his father, Giuland.  It’s built on the estate’s best Sangiovese plus a splash of Malvasia Nero – a favorite blend of Giuland’s – and given 18 months in French oak followed by extra time in concrete tank and bottle.  The aromas are sexy and sophisticated, with deep cherry/berry fruit framed by notes of fresh earth, sweet spice, and light herb.  There’s a ton going on in your mouth, but the bold burst of black raspberry fruit pulses through the layers of tobacco, spice, smoke and fresh flower flavors.  The fruit keeps on pumping through the long, complex, and firm finish in a wine that has the structure to age a decade and shine now with rich, dry-aged, beef.

Secret Squirrel Columbia Valley Bordeaux Blend 2013 Secret Squirrel Columbia Valley Bordeaux Blend 2013

The name may be silly, but the wine is silly delicious. This Bordeaux style blend from Columbia Valley. Aromas of ripe blackberries and sage, with a hint of coffee invite you to take a sip. Despite all these dark, rich flavors, the fruit flavors are vibrant and exciting and the finish is firm enough for a steak, but not too firm to sip alone. You won’t want to keep this a secret!

Clua Milliennium Tinto 2013 Product #32666 (In Stock)
Clua Milliennium Tinto 2013 Clua Milliennium Tinto 2013

SAVE 40%!  In this fascinatingly delicious wine, Xavier Clua has captured the changable essence of his Terra Alta Vineyards.  Vineyards that move from clay, to rocky chalk, to lightly sandy across his 450-500 meter site.  Days and nights range from baking hot to bracing chill.  And his grapes here start with classic Garnatxa Negra (Garnacha) and pull in complements of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.  Put all that together with a year in 50/50 new/second use barrel, and you get a wine that has a lot to say - and says it with power and charm.

On first pour and sniff, you can tell this is going to be a wild ride!  Aromas of deep roasted black fruits - plums, berries, cherries - turn rich and deep with air and are framed by scents of subtle spice, light balsamic and a hint of roasted meat.  In the mouth, this is one of those wines that walks a tightly focused path between rich indulgence and intense verve.  Deeply expressive flavors of wild blackberry, black currant, raspberry, licorice and balsamic are lifted across the palate by a burst of tangy blackberry juice, fresh blood orange, and fresh floral notes.  A beguiling hint of walnut runs under the mouthwatering finish where fresh picked berry and blood orange flavors ride over fine-grained tannins.

Or at least that's what I got from my tasting.  The truth is that this is a wine in motion, and what you'll smell, taste, and feel from it will shift and evolve over the hours you have it in your glass.  A joy to drink now and plenty of potential to improve through 2023.

With a nod to "Super-Tuscan" wines, we might call this a "Super-Basilicata" red - if anyone knew where that is!  At the top of the arch of Italy's boot, this blends the region's best red grape, Aglianico, with 50% Merlot shows the benefit of aging in French oak.  Sexy and round with dark, rich, black fruit framed by notes of coffee, smoke, chocolate and spice. The sweet currant and raspberry fruit gets a lift from juicy Italian acids and flows on through the supple, smooth, finish.

The cherry quality comes back strong on the persistent finish, which is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins."  Vinous 91 points

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Product #31389 (In Stock)
Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013

A new wine from this traditional producer, one that breaks out their juicy, intense, Knights Valley fruit into a wine of its own. Stylish, with black cherry, currant, and red raspberry fruit, a fleshy middle, and nice length before finishing with classically grainy tannins. Grill a steak and enjoy!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013."   Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"Pure and high-pitched, with a talc note driving the core of lemon pulp, fennel seed, yellow apple fruit and honeysuckle. The long, stony finish ripples on and on. A lovely, minerally version."Wine Spectator 91 points
