Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2015 Product #30909 (In Stock)
Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2015 Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2015

Another outstanding 2015 from grapes grown near Rufina in Chianti. Bursting with ripe cherry and red berry fruit that get surprisingly dark and rich with air and keep on pumping right through the easygoing finish.  It's bright enough to sing with pizza and pasta and smooth enough to enjoy on its own. This tasty, easygoing, Sangiovese is just about the perfect casual Italian spaghetti night red.  And, at this great price, you can put it in the spaghetti, too and pop, pour, and enjoy with a crowd.

Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015 Product #31208 (In Stock)
Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015 Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015

Serious wine value fun alert here!  This is one of those wines you'll want on hand to pair with any meal, to serve with a chill on a warm day or to let warm up and gain richness on a cool autumn evening.  It's 100% Barbera, the juicy, low tannin, cherry and earth-laden grape of Piemonte to the south of Turin.  This example from Monferrato is just bursting with juicy black cherry fruit with accents of violets, leather, and spice.  There's a richness and depth here that many $20 Barberas lack and a sweet/tangy cherry and cherry pit finish that will keep you coming back for more.  A wine that screams "Italy" but will also please a crowd.

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

Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015 Product #32005 (In Stock)
Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015 Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015

The family behind Glenbrook winery has been growing grapes and making wine in California for five generations.  And, if this Chardonnay is any evidence, it doesn’t appear that they’ve changed much since they first started!  Their 2015 Chardonnay is a throwback to the days when “rich” and “buttery” we words of praise for California Chard.  And the modest price and remarkably modest alcohol levels (just 13.0%!) are throwbacks to the days when all anyone cared about was making a tasty bottle of wine to be drunk with delight and for fun.

Give a glass a swirl and you’ll have no trouble finding the big aromas of orchard fruits and buttered popcorn with accents of hazelnut, caramel, and truffle.  Take a sip and you’ll love the mouth-coating, smooth, texture and bold flavors of ripe apple and pineapple fruit cloaked in rich butter and caramel.  Swallow and wait for it:  the deep flavors flow onto a surprisingly fresh finish where fruit and salty butter flavors linger.  Rich enough to serve with scallops or lobster if you like, but the fresh, buttery, flavors are pretty darn fun on their own.

Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Product #30859 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2015 Product #31041 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2015 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2015

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish. Very hard to beat at this price!

Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Product #31194 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015

Robert Parker called the 2011 edition of this perennial favorite value red, “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world.”  The 2015 edition is even better, clearly the best release of this all-time value champion we’ve tasted to date.  As always, it’s a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo, all grown on the dusty, barren, soils of Spain’s Campo de Borja region.  Naturally grown, hand harvested, and fermented and aged all in tank, it’s a perfect blend of rich, ripe, fruit and stylish, refreshing, structure.

The wine opens with big, bold aromas of black cherry, dark berries, underbrush, loamy earth and cracked black pepper. Take a sip and you'll love the explosion of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit and accents of pepper, rich earth, and sweet spice - all from the grape, because there's no oak here at all.  The finish is broad, fresh and very long, with fine, dusty, tannins providing food-friendly support and dark berry and pepper flavors lingering nicely.  A delicious wine that sell for a crazy low price.

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Product #30615 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  The 2015 harvest yielded plump, ripe, Chardonnay fruit with plenty of heft and balancing acidity.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with nice energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  A tad richer and deeper than the 2014, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #30939 (In Stock)
Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Palacio de Bornos Sauvignon Blanc 2015

We've loved Palacio de Bornos Verdejo for years, but just wait until you try their zesty Sauvignon Blanc!  Like the Verdejo, this is from the hot, arid, vineyards of Spain's Rueda where plenty of sunshine gives great ripeness and cool, crisp, nights (and very careful winemaking) translate into...well, a cool, crisp, white!  This juicy value pumps out loads of citrus and green grape fruit with an enlivening dash of herbal Meyer lemon.  Delicious and fun to drink.

"Dried lemon, pear skin, melon and quinine on the mineral-accented nose and in the mouth. Dry, nervy and sharply focused, picking up an exotic pineapple nuance as the wine opens up. Finishes taut and spicy, showing good energy and a touch of succulent herbs."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Product #31053 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015

Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

“A highly expressive bouquet evokes fresh peach, melon and passionfruit, and a minerally nuance adds vivacity. Silky and open-knit, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Deftly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and smooth, featuring an echo of ripe peach and bracing ginger and mineral notes.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

“Gloriously aromatic with jasmine and flint notes; very scented. Full and fleshy palate with a mineral follow-through and an intense, harmonious finish. A very lovely Albariño that is so pure.” Decanter 92 points

De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015 Product #31078 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015 De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015

Best vintage yet for this fresh, fruit-filled, Italian white. The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano.

Great aromas of pear, peach, and lime with a salty scent of the sea in the background.    On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach, apple, pear and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Fantastic value.

Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015 Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015

A classic Muscadet from from the exciting 2015 vintage. Bold, saline, aromas of green apple, citrus and stone lead to a fresh, salty, palate with lean, green, fruit, tons of minerality, and a pulsing energy that just won't quit.  Finishes long and pure and clean with notes of lime, mineral, and more lingering on and on.  The warm vintage gives a bit more heft than usual, but still plenty of refreshing cut.

A truly delicious everyday, anytime, anywhere red from an 8 acre vineyard in the Marche hills not far from the sea, this is a robust blend of Montepulciano (80%) and Sangiovese (20%), all from the great 2015 vintage. Plump and chocolatey, it's full of dark berry and plum fruit with just a touch of typical salty mineral on the back.  A red you can drink with seafood, pizza, burgers, or all by itself!

Dom De Chantepierre Cotes Du Rhone 2015 Dom De Chantepierre Cotes Du Rhone 2015

From the fine co-op in Tavel, this GSM blend shows off Tavel's best grape - Mourvedre - with style.  The aromas are rich, earthy, and loaded with garrigue and dark black fruit.  The dark blackberry and black raspberry fruit forms the core of the palate, with more of Mourvedre's classic earth and garrigue tones adding interest and a nice dose of firm tannin at the end.  Old-school fun.

Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Product #31862 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015

If you're looking for subtle, elegant, sophisticated California Cabernet...then look elsewhere.  Because this is rowdy, pumped up, boldly fruited, vanilla and chocolate-laced Cab with French oak spice and a finish as plump as a feather pillow.  Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela created the Rubus label so he could find under-appreciated fruit in great growing regions and turn it into crowd-pleasing wines a wallet-delighting prices.  This is the best we've tasted in the series, with good heft (at just 13.5% abv) and oodles of chocolate-covered cherry fruit and sweet oak spice.  Soft enough to sip at a casual cookout, bold enough to enjoy with burgers, steaks or lamb, and affordable enough to share with a crowd.

Fun, fun, fun wine from this small, all organic, co-op in Navara.  It's a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon all made in cement tank.  You'll taste Tempranillo's dark, plummy, fruit and sandalwood spice and feel Garnacha's red fruit and round texture.  Cabernet adds a touch of structure and sweet spice that adds interest on the juicy, ripely fruited, finish.  Delicous with a chill, too!

This was good on release but - believe it or not - it's even better now!  Just explosively aromatic and flavorful with apricot and passionfruit at the core and a bite of just picked Granny Smith apple at the end.  There's a tiny prickle of gas on the finish but mainly loads of zesty fruit.  A 50/35 blend of Arinto and Azal, with 15% Trajadura, unoaked and coming in at 11.5% alcohol.

Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015

A blend of 40% Grenache - bled from red wine tanks - plus 30% direct press Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.  The texture is the real story here, round and plush and mouthfilling but still light and fresh.  You'll love it right now as a late-Summer refresher, but hold on to some for end-of-year feasts and even for Summer 2017 - because this will just get better with time!

"Pale orange. Aromas of orange zest, strawberry and white flowers show very good clarity and a subtle mineral element. Juicy and focused, offering ripe strawberry and tangerine flavors that put on weight with aeration. Fleshy, focused and dry on the penetrating finish, which shows good, nervy cut and minerally persistence."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

"Editors Choice! Coming from a remote estate on the edge of the Lubéron mountains in the north of Provence, this wine is impressively rich. It gains great concentration and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in the blend. Full of ripe red fruits, it is dense at the end."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Product #31175 (In Stock)
Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015

"Tire Bouchon" is the French phrase for a corkscrew, but the literal translation is better:  Cork Puller.  And you're going to pull a lot of these corks this fall and winter! This is a throw-back (in terms of both time and how you'll drink it!) red made from Grenache, Syrah, and 10% old-timey Aramon and Oeillade Noire.  While it's all grown in Adrien Roustan's Vacqueyras vineyards, the old grapes aren't allowed, so it's bottled as Vin de France.  The winemaking is pretty old school, too.  All the grapes are tossed into the vat together, covered with some dry ice, and allowed to start fermentation as they will.  10 days in the fermenter, a few months resting in tank, and then ready for you to slurp!

It's friendly from the first sniff, with open, generous, aromas of crushed black raspberries, sweet cherry, violets, and a hint of ripe black olive.  Take a sip and let the party begin!  This wine just oozes sweet, fresh, very ripe red and black cherry/berry fruit with a touch of cracked pepper, lavender and rich loamy earth for complexity.  Juicy and mouthwatering, but not at all tart, with a bit of Black Forest cake (chocolate and sweet cherry) coming up on the supple, lingering, finish.  Sure, it's going to go swell with all kinds of casual foods - burgers, hot dogs, pizza, stews - but it will shine most brightly when shared with (soon to be very happy) friends!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015

As the Post says, Austria's 2015s “are among the best white wines in the world in terms of value and quality, and they’re enjoying the best vintage in recent memory.”   Certainly, this is the best vintage of this stunning value single-vineyard Gruner to date!  There’s a refreshing salty brininess to the aromas here, along with fresh pear and meyer lemon. On the palate there’s a pleasing weightiness from that extra notch of ripeness 2015’s near perfect conditions brought that you wouldn’t expect from all those brisk, fresh aromas. That pear aroma takes on a lovely ripeness, and there’s a delicious ripe apple flavor as well, like biting into a fresh Honeycrisp. A refreshing, versatile white.

“Notes of crisp green pear and crunchy red apple are very appetizing, the palate is fresh and echoes these flavors and edges them with some spice and alcoholic heat, but also has a drive and energy of its own. Friendly and very moreish.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points
