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!

Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014 Product #32395 (In Stock)
Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014 Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014

An Italian blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese that would be a $20 "super-Tuscan" - if only it didn't come from neighboring Umbria!  This is rich and round with dark cherry and red currant fruit, moderate acidity and nicely chewy tannins.  Turns spicier and smoother with air, making this a great choice for everything from cookouts to spaghetti dinners to cool weather parties.

"A soft and velvety texture red with orange peel, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a flavorful finish. Subtle at the same time. This is always one of Italy's excellent value reds."  James Suckling 91 points

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

San Lorenzo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014 Product #31970 (In Stock)
San Lorenzo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014 San Lorenzo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014

The best vintage ever for this consistently ripe, round, and soft Montepulciano. Dark, chocolaty, aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, cherry, and plum fruit gain complexity from hints of cocoa, licorice and coffee. The texture is a bit broader and deeper than usual (oddly in what should be a lighter vintage), giving the wine a compelling mix of power and freshness - kind of a zesty richness.  Try it!

La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014 Product #32629 (In Stock)
La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014 La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014

"Mendoza" is the winemaker's name - this is all Spanish Monestrel, packing a bold punch of flavor with nice, velvety, texture.  A "Tremenda" value!

"This wine has six months in used 500-liter barrels and a variable time in vat, between six months and one year. The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe."Wine Advocate 92 points

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.

La Lecciaia Lupaia Toscana 2014 Product #32524 (In Stock)

A fine little super-Tuscan blend from Brunello producer La Lecciaia.  Mainly Sangiovese with dollops of Cabernet Sauvingnon and Merlot, this opens with bold, earthy, aromas of ripe cherry and raspberry framed by notes of leather and crushed herb.  Fleshy and full on the palate, where subtle spice notes join the bold dark fruit flavors.  Finishes with zesty energy and fine tannins, making this fun to sip and a great choice for the classic Italian table.  A lot of wine for the money!

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml Product #31588 (In Stock)
Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml

Steve MacRostie creates this classy Chardonnay from grapes grown in some of the most exciting regions of California's Sonoma Coast.  Sangiacomo and Hi Vista vineyards in Carneros give richness and texture.  Several Russian River Valley sites - including sites owned by the Dutton and Martinelli familes - give lift, purity and vibrancy.  And MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Vyd just west of Carneros adds fantastic complexity and length.

All of the fruit is pressed whole cluster (without destemming) to maintain clarity and freshness.  About 90% ferments and ages in (20% new) French oak for more richness and body while 20% stays in stainless steel to retain crispness and cut.

"Features a delicious core of vibrant grapefruit and lemon-laced tangerine and white peach notes, with zesty acidity that keeps the flavors fresh and jumping."Wine Spectator 90 points

Araldica Barbera d'Asti Albera 2014 Product #31875 (In Stock)
Araldica Barbera d'Asti Albera 2014 Araldica Barbera d'Asti Albera 2014

Just what you want in a versatile, keep a case or two on hand, everyday red.  It opens with aromas of dark black cherries, clove, fresh leather and dark flowers.  Then, in your mouth, it’s medium-bodied and very juicy fresh with nicely concentrated flavors of sweet cherry and strawberry accented by a dash of spice and red plum.  As you swallow, your mouth will start to water a bit as the sweet red fruit flavors go “bang” and linger nicely as notes of violets and just more fresh leather emerge over soft, easygoing, tannins.  A terrific pizza/pasta/party wine that’s priced to enjoy anytime or share with a crowd.

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

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

Le Paradou Grenache 2014 Product #32598 (In Stock)

From 40-60 year-old Grenache growing in high-altitude vineyards named for a 400 year-old farmhouse.  Bursting with ripe, juicy, strawberry and cherry fruit with rich accents of damp earth and cracked black pepper.  It's full in texture and flavor, but with plenty of body but also a nice sappy freshness.  A bold bistro red to enjoy with or without food and a very nice value. A project of importer Eric Solomon and Ventoux's Frederic Chaudiere designed to bring the fruit-filled, slightly rustic, flavors of Luberon to a broader audience.

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

Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014 Product #31569 (In Stock)
Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014 Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014

This Wahluke Falls Cab sells for $23 at the winery and comfortably outperforms that price point.  The fruit is fully ripe and rich - but not over-ripe or pruney - with generous aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, dark raspberry and crushed herb.  A full 18 months in 53% new barrels (one-third American, two-thirds French oak) gives the wine a supple and plush mouthfeel and loads of cocoa, vanilla, and rich sweet spice notes.  The finish is remarkably long for a $20-$30 bottling, with layered currant, berry, cocoa and spice flavors flowing out over fine-grained tannins that melt away gently.  A great choice to pair up with roast beef, grilled lamb, or roasted vegetable dishes or to just pop and pour at a big celebration.  A lot of wine for the money!

This rich red blend is exactly what you want to curl up on the couch with after a long day. 90% Merlot and 10% Syrah from Paso Robles' Mossfire Ranch, it smells like blueberry pie and ripe raspberries and plums. It's mouthfilling and satisfying without overwhelming with tannin or oak, but there's enough spice and vanilla to make it feel luxurious. Yum!

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

Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Heron Pinot Noir California 2015

Here's a delicious party Pinot Noir that well out-performs the modest price.  Ripe Pinot fruit from Paso Robles, Monterey and the Russian River Valley gets a cool fermentation and then aging in 1 and 2 year-old French oak.  That brings out a lovely richness and very RRV-like candied cherry fruit with accents of cola, spice and pepper.  Nice and round on the palate, there's enough structure here for this to shine with salmon and poultry.

Dom Lafage Grenache Cuvee Nicolas 2014 Product #32365 (In Stock)

"Made from 100% Grenache, the 2015 Cotes Catalanes Nicolas comes from granite and schist soils in the Roussillon and is brought up in demi-muids and barrels. This sensational wine is unquestionably one of the best values I've tasted in a long, long time. Blueberries, kirsch, chocolate and garrigue all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy, polished beauty that offers tons of fruit and texture while never seeming over the top or cumbersome. Buy a case, pretend you spent a lot more money than you actually did, and drink this knock-out red over the coming 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

An insanely delicious blend of Piemonte Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera with small amounts of Albarossa, Freisa and Pinot Noir. Richer than usual and loaded with cherry and raspberry fruit and spicy tannins on the finish.  A great all-purpose red for pizza/pasta, salami, cheese - whatever!

"A light-bodied style, this cherry-, strawberry- and floral-flavored red is balanced, energetic and mouthwatering. Long and resonant on the finish, with a chalky feel."Wine Spectator 90 points

This fantastic dry Gewurztraminer is from the makers of our favorite value Pinot Noir, Oregon's Brandborg.  Its aromatics are classic Gewurz: rose petals, lychee, and hints of spice.  It's rich and mouthfilling, but finishes clean.  All of the exotic aromas and flavors are reigned in by a surprising amount of welcome acidity, making this a perfect partner for gently spiced Indian food.

A 100% Grenache from this family-owned, organic estate with holdings in an area of unique terroir in the Southern Rhone known as "Le Plan de Dieu," whose soil is full of 'galets,' the smooth, round stones characteristic of the region. While the aromas have that classic herbal garrigue note, on the palate the fruit is bold, satisfying, and ripe flavors of blackberries and lusciously ripe raspberries.
