San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014 Product #31790 (In Stock)
San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014 San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014

Proof that not all Chianti Classico is "serious" - although this is seriously fun to drink!  It's 100% Sangiovese from the best part of the Chianti zone with minimal wood influence.  It's bursting with juicy black cherry fruit with just a touch of earthy/leathery accents and spice. Really pumps out generous fruit over nicely grippy tannins.  An excellent value for pizza and pasta.

Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014 Product #32573 (In Stock)
Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014 Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2014

A staggering value!  Dark black raspberry, plum, purple flowers, cocoa powder and dusty mineral scents are just some of the aromas showing on the complex nose.  As in past releases, there's plenty of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit on the palate with dashes of licorice root, wild strawberry and mineral flavors in the mouth.  But the texture here is the best ever, poised and sleek at first before gaining amplitude and depth with air.  By all means enjoy it right now for the forward fruit and sophisticated mouth feel.  But stash some away for a few years and you'll be rewarded with even more intense flavors and breadth.

"One of the top wines from this producer, this blend of at least 10 grape varieties comes from its estate. The wood aging has added sophistication to this already concentrated wine. With black fruits to the fore and firm tannins, it will age well."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014 Product #32686 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014

Another great vintage for this long-time Italian value!

"The 2014 Salice Salentino Riserva is a heavy and concentrated wine with prune, raisin and blackberry jelly. The wine is hearty and dense with sweet flavors on the finish that are interwoven tightly with equally savory characteristics. Despite those big bones, this wine from Cantele ultimately offers good balance and a very clean and correct drinking style. It a great value, too."Wine Advocate 89 points

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2014 Product #33140 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2014 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2014

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.

Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014 Product #32525 (In Stock)
Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014 Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014

Not the fanciest of wines, but a good example of what Syrah does on the cracked slate hills of Spain's Montsant region.  Normally used to blend with Garnacha and Carignan, here it shines on its own with fine ripness and fruit tempered by 12 months in neutral oak. 

"Vivid ruby. Aromas of dried cherry, cassis and licorice, plus a hint of smokiness in the background. Gently sweet black and blue fruit flavors are enlivened by a peppery element that builds as the wine opens up. Closes on a bitter note, with dusty tannins adding grip and a slightly stern edge."  Vinous (Raynolds) 87 points

Ch Larose Trintaudon Haut Medoc 2014 375ml Product #32764 (In Stock)
Ch Larose Trintaudon Haut Medoc 2014 375ml Ch Larose Trintaudon Haut Medoc 2014 375ml

A great wine in any form, but especially appealing in just-right-sized half-bottle!

"The 2014 Larose-Trintaudon has a stylish bouquet, well defined and quite minerally with blackberry and wild strawberry scents to the fore. The palate is well balanced, clean and pure with real vibrancy and joie-de-vivre. It builds nicely in the mouth and gains more and more precision towards the sophisticated finish. Bravo -- this is a superb Haut-Médoc that will drink beautifully for the next 10 years, possibly more."Wine Advocate 91 points

R8 Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon California 2014 Product #33065 (In Stock)
R8 Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon  California 2014 R8 Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon  California 2014

R8 stands for Runway 8 at the Sonoma County airport, where this fine value winery is located (all the founders like to fly, too).  The 2014 R8 Cabernet is sourced from vineyards up and down California's North Coast and reflects the best of the great 2014 harvest:  plenty of ripe fruit and a plush and silky texture.  It serves up great aromas of black currant, black cherry, milk chocolate and spice.  It's fleshy and rich on the palate with more classic Cab currant fruit, a nice dose of chocolate and spice, and fine, food friendly, tannins.  A great party or casual dinner Cabernet that delivers a touch of extra class on the sneaky long finish.  Highly recommended!

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Product #31842 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014

As always, an amazing amount of pure, no-oak, Chardonnnay for the money.

"The highlight in this range from Foxglove, the 2014 Chardonnay packs a serious punch for the money. Bright, juicy and exuberant, the Foxglove Chardonnay will thrill readers looking for a budget-priced Chardonnay. Lemon peel, white flowers and mint meld together in a rich, beautifully layered Chardonnay long on class. Aging in steel and blocked malolactic fermentation keep the flavors bright, but there is no shortage of depth or intensity. This is a fabulous wine, especially considering its modest price." Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

"Made by some of the best Chardonnay winemakers in California, Jim and Bob Varner, the value-priced 2014 Chardonnay released under the Foxglove label sports a light gold color to go with exotic notes of pineapples, melon, citrus blossom, spice and hints of green herbs. Supple, forward and straight-up delicious on the palate, with no hard edges and a clean, classy profile, it's a steal at the price and will drink nicely for a year or three."Wine Advocate 90 points

Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2014 Product #33004 (In Stock)

A classic, gutsy, Cotes du Rhone made from 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre.

"Gorgeous tobacco, black pepper, black cherry and an attractive dash of herbal complexity too. Still-youthful fruit on the palate, yet already showing attractive evolution. As ever, this is surely one of the most reliable large-scale wines in existence. Firm tannin with much more refreshing acid than most Côtes du Rhônes thanks to the high Syrah element."  JancisRobinson.com 16.5/20 points

Familia Montana Reserva Rioja 2012 Product #33095 (In Stock)
Familia Montana Reserva Rioja 2012 Familia Montana Reserva Rioja 2012

From a very old Rioja family that has somehow avoided the limelight - at least until now!  Because they've grown fruit in Rioja since the late 19th Century, their vineyards show a fairly high vine age and they've clung to their old-school, square-edged, bottle.  The old vines give good richness to this Tempranillo with 3% Graciano for spice.  The 12 months in French oak shows as a chocolaty spice to the dark black plum and blackberry fruit.  Plush, rich and spicy and ready to drink today (or for a decade).

Ch Trebiac Bordeaux Graves 2014 Product #33396 (In Stock)
Ch Trebiac Bordeaux Graves 2014 Ch Trebiac Bordeaux Graves 2014

One of the best values we've seen in cask-aged Bordeaux in a while from the classic Graves region, just south of the city of Bordeaux. A classic wine from a classic vintage, showing rich fruit, spice and a touch of dark chocolate on the nose and palate. With air the gravel that gives "Graves" its name comes out and adds another dimension to the aromas and finish.  You could hold this for a while, but it's ready now in a classic style.

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2014 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2014

Wow, is this great, with a pure core of sweet red and black Tempranillo fruit and a just-right dash of oak.

"The Crianza from Luis Cañas is always a textbook example of the category. The 2014 Crianza is no exception, with those sweet lactic aromas, cinnamon and vanilla intermixed with Fruit of the Forest notes. The palate is silky, smooth and supple, a champion in drinkability. It's remarkable that they produce 1.5 million bottles of this wine."Wine Advocate 91 points

Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014 Product #32028 (In Stock)
Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014 Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2014

The best wines of Ribera del Duero tend to be unoaked values or barrel aged reds that cost $30+.  So we were delighted to find this honest, rich, all Tempranillo Crianza that matches rich fruit to smoky oak at a fine value price.  You'll find Ribera's signature dark purple fruit - black plum, dark cherry, black raspberry - with attractive accents of sandalwood and spice.  Round and deep on the palate and then smooth and spicy on the long, smoky, finish, it's a great cookout and roasted meat red you'll be happy to drink before dinner, too.

"Pure Tempranillo with a commercial profile, generously oaked but not excessive, matured in oak for 14 months. The palate has abundant tannins, sweet fruit and plenty of oak-related flavors."Wine Advocate 89 points

Casaloste Rosso Maniero Toscana IGT 2014 Product #32304 (In Stock)
Casaloste Rosso Maniero Toscana IGT 2014 Casaloste Rosso Maniero Toscana IGT 2014

This could almost be labeled Chianti Classico (and actually has some declassified Chianti juice in it), but with just 65% Sangiovese, it's a tad under the minimum.  The 35% other grapes - mainly Merlot and Canaiolo - soften Sangiovese's bite and add a nice layer of richness and depth to this all tank blend.  Dark cherry and bitter chocolate aromas and flavors get a nice lift from lemony acidity and fresh, juicy, raspberry.  There's enough structure and weight to make this a great table wine but it's supple enough to just sip, too.

Second release of this powerhouse from Joe Wagner of Belle Glos fame.  Given 30 days of skin contact (for maximum flavor/texture extraction) and 12 months in barrel (to round off the edges), it's an unusually plush zin that stays just this side of "over the top."  Classic Zinny aromas and flavors of crushed red berry, cherry pie, and plenty of oaky spice and vanilla with a smooth as silk finish.

McNab Ridge Mendocino County Pinotage 2014 Product #32709 (In Stock)

Hmmm.  Maybe all those years we thought we didn't like South African Pinotage it was the place, not the grape, that was at fault.  Because this Pinotage from California's Mendocino County is delicous!  It's loaded with aromas and flavors of red berry and cherry fruit that are plenty ripe but also nicely crunchy fresh. A refreshing beam of tangy strawberry enlivens the lightly tannic finish.  A fun drink and great all 'round entertaining wine!

A lovely all-tank blend of 55% Grenache, 23% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault that's drinking beautifully now.

"Mineral- and smoke-accented red berries and candied flowers on the tightly focused nose. Spicy and energetic in style, offering fresh raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a repeating suggestion of smokiness. Turns sweeter on the incisive finish, which features fine-grained tannins and an echo of cherry pit."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89-91 points

"Ripe peach, apricot and pear flavors are rich and unctuous, with toasted spice, vanilla bean and honeysuckle accents. Crisp acidity leads to a fresh finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Tinto Negro Malbec Limestone Block Mendoza 2014 Tinto Negro Malbec Limestone Block Mendoza 2014

"Musky aromas of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a touch of oak. Concentrated, bright, nicely delineated dark berry and smoky mineral flavors shows good sweetness for the year. Round, seamless wine with no sign of heaviness or tiredness. Finishes tactile, broad and persistent, with nicely buffered tannins. This very suave wine should provide considerable early appeal."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

"The 2014 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone that has stones covered in limestone, the characteristic that names the wine. It feels quite ripe, with some organic hints of soil intermixed with prunes and damsons. The palate is fresher and has some cherry flavors shaped by fine, chalky tannins and balanced acidity."Wine Advocate 90 points
