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

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

We love bringing you bottles like this – wines that are both deliciously authentic expressions of a grape and place AND carrying the reassuring praise of the international wine press.  The grape here is Monastrell, better known to many as France’s Mourvedre in its starring role in Bandol and Ch Beaucastel’s Chateauneuf du Pape.  On the high plains of Spain’s Alicante region and under the care of the committed traditionalists at Enrique Mendoza, this marries rich ripeness of fruit with earthy, herbal, complexity and a finish that’s long, firm, but still very easy to enjoy.  Sure, it’s built to pair with rich stews and savory roasted and grilled meats.  But the ripe fruit and silky finish will give plenty of pleasure before the food ever hits the table.

"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.

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.

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!

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

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

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

d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014 Product #31777 (In Stock)
d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014 d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014

A juicy, fresh, and surprisingly easy-drinkinng Aglianico!   As Wine Advocate says, the use of wood here is artful, softening tannins without adding any oak flavor.  Delicious stuff to enjoy with sausages, roasted peppers, or any hearty food.

"D'Angelo has managed to tame the rough and rustic nature of Aglianico from Basilicata. The use of oak seems to be the key to their success. The 2014 Sacravite, which sees five months in large oak cask, is a prime example. The tannins and the forceful nature of the bouquet have been very nicely managed here. Soft layers of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and tar are presented with noticeable intensity. The wine offers a satisfying burst of earthiness and savory spice at the back. This vintage is a little weaker, but the wine delivers above-average results nonetheless. Sacravite is a great value buy."Wine Advocate 89 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

Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Product #31720 (In Stock)
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)
Dom Lafage Grenache Cuvee Nicolas 2014 Dom Lafage Grenache Cuvee Nicolas 2014

"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

Bojador Tinto Vinho Regional Alentejano 2014 Bojador Tinto Vinho Regional Alentejano 2014

If you've enjoyed great value Portuguese reds like Confidencial, take a step up to this bold, intense, red and you'll be happier still. A blend of Aragonez (Tempranillo) and Port grapes Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira, this is a wine of plush, rich, deep texture.  Black and dark red fruits (berries, plums) make up the wine's core with spicy, chocolaty, oak adding depth and complexity.  The super-intense fruit, oak, and fine tannins make this a great steak wine, but you'll be happy sipping on it while the grill warms up, too!

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!

Add another new grape to your list while enjoying this ripe and rich 100% Castelao red from Portugal.  This is a big, heavy, red with tons of dark fruit and frank, full-throttle, French oak.  Grill something.

"Yet another delicious red wine made from castelao grapes in central Portugal. It’s got spicy raspberry and cranberry flavors, with hints of mushroom and a cool forest evening. Enjoy this with grilled meats or seafood."  **/*** Washington Post

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

A pretty luscious bottle of Cabernet here with generous black fruit - plum, blackberry - framed by milk chocolate and fresh herb.  Smooth and dense and delicious!

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas is mostly from 20-year-old vines from Buin and a small part from Macul. It matured in second use French barriques for 12 months. It's marginally more concentrated and complex than the Don Matías, with some tannins and a touch of oak."Wine Advocate 89 points

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).
