Bodegas Luzon Verde Jumilla Monastrell 2015 Bodegas Luzon Verde Jumilla Monastrell 2015

A delicious, fresh and vivid take on Monestrell made from organic grapes and done all in tank. Excellent value, too!

"Dark berries and cherry pit on the nose, lifted by a spicy pepper nuance. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering plump blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Dusty tannins sneak in slowly on the finish, adding closing shape and grip."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points

Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Product #32704 (In Stock)
Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015

The kind of wine Languedoc does best - a great all-purpose, no oak, quaffer made from 60% Grenache (for ripe red fruit) and 40% Syrah (for meaty, smoky, accents). Dark red raspberry fruit holds center stage with hints of blackberry and savory notes of pepper and black olive for interest.  Juicy and easy drinking with a fun, mouthwatering, finish.  Tastes like $15 - and a good $15 red at that!

Special Note: Your purchase will be accompanied by a mail in coupon for a $24 rebate when you purchase 12 bottles or more of this wine. Valid for Virginia residents only - see store for details.

This was a delightful find last spring when we had it pegged as the best burger wine value for summer of 2017 and even more delicious in the fall.  Now, as the weather (finally!) gets ready to warm up again, this 100% Monestrell (Mourvedre in France) from all organic grapes is even better.  It’s a rich and fruity red with good heft and a gentle earthy complexity.

"Put this on your shopping list: The bargain red wine of the year...If you’re looking for a summer house red, this is an ideal candidate and a good match for burgers and steaks from the grill. It’s made from monastrell (known as mourvedre in France), and features dark cherry and dried fig flavors with hints of black olive, tea and tobacco. Made from organically grown grapes. This may be the best $10 red I’ve tasted in a long time."  2.5/3 Stars The Washington Post and Value Wine of the Year

“A dense and oaky nose with high spice and bright earthy beetroot. The palate is authentic and characterful with blueberry fruit and a pleasing creaminess reminiscent of raspberry ripple ice cream.”  Decanter Magazine 91 points

Campet Ste Marie Chardonnay Pays d'Oc France 2015 Product #33185 (In Stock)
Campet Ste Marie Chardonnay Pays d'Oc France 2015 Campet Ste Marie Chardonnay Pays d'Oc France 2015

We think of France's Languedoc as a hot region built to turn out hearty reds.  But Limoux, just south of Carcassonne, is higher and cooler than most of the rest of Languedoc with chalky limestone soils and cooling Mediterranean breezes - perfect for fine Chardonnay!  And this one is very fine indeed, made from just ripe-enough fruit (13.5 alcohol) that is fermented cool and aged 9 months in used French oak.

Pretty aromas of stone fruit, citrus and oak spice lead to a round, fleshy, mouthful of Honeycrisp apple and baked pear flavors accented by notes of lemon curd and toasted nut.  The fruit turns more white (peach, apricot, apple) on the finish with a touch of fresh butter and refreshing, vibrant, acids.  A fine Bourgogne Blanc and Macon alternative to enjoy with salads, seafood and poultry or just to sip on its own.  Outstanding value, too!

Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015 Product #31661 (In Stock)
Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015 Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015

"The Little Spencer" is the "fun" wine from this respected Corbieres estate in the heart of sunny Languedoc.  It's a blend of 50% Carignan plus 20% Mourvedre and 15% each Syrah and Grenache, all grown in a natural amphitheater that gives and extra dose of ripeness. This tastes and feels like a more expensive wine with deep, rich, blue/black fruit, complex accents of hot stone, licorice, and garrigue and a nicely chewy finish.  Fun stuff especially with rustic, herb-laced, foods.

Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015 Product #32964 (In Stock)
Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015 Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015

Jean-Yves Perraud farms just 20 acres of Gamay in Moulin-a-Vent and Villages-level vineyards between Fleurie and Chenas. In 2015, he turned out a winning, ripe, gulpable Beaujolais Villages that you'll love drinking for refreshment and pairing with roast chicken or any simple meal.  There's the concentration and ripeness you'd expect from 40 year-old vines and the generous 2015 harvest, with loads of dark red cherry and ripe strawberry fruit.  A blast of floral perfume and stony minerality adds interest and a just right pop of cherry acids keeps things fresh and fun.

Wine Advocate's score (87 points) misses the mark a bit, but the words are spot on: "The 2015 Beaujolais Villages needs a leash on the nose to hold back all those exuberant kirsch and dark cherry fruit bursting from the glass. But that is what you want from this vintage. The palate is succulent and ripe with dark cherries and strawberry, sweet to the core and though missing a little definition on the finish, you'd have consumed the entire bottle before you start vexing about that. Glug 'n enjoy."  Exactly!

Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Product #31231 (In Stock)
Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015

We've featured Palazzone's other Orvietos before, but this year it was the Classico that really grabbed our attention.  It's a traditional blend of 50% Procanico, 30% Grechetto and dollops of Verdello, Drupeggio and Malvasia that comes together to deliver boatloads of classic Orvieto character.  What's that, you ask?  Try aromas and flavors of bright, fresh, sweet lemon juice with a twist of fennel frond and squeeze of honeysuckle.  Not a "light, crisp, neutral" Italian white, this sports big flavors and a rich, mouth-coating, texture and a long, mouthwatering, finish of lemon oil, honeysuckle, and mineral flavors lingering nicely.  There's enough body and interest and fruit to make this a joy to drink solo and it will sing with salads, seafood, and cheese.  A winning value that outperforms many wines at 2x the price.

Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Product #31532 (In Stock)
Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015

The Recorba Ribera del Duero Tinto is an example of what happens when you get Tempranillo all the way ripe and then let it show it’s colors without any wood at all.  Big aromas and flavors of red plum, black cherry and raspberry take center stage with accents of natural spice, warm stones, and a touch of exotic sandalwood.  A huge “bang for the buck” Tempranillo to enjoy by itself or with pretty much anything you’d put on the grill.

Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2015 Product #32911 (In Stock)

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.

Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Product #32470 (In Stock)
Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015

Dark ruby in color, this Merlot showcases aromas of muddled blackberry with thyme, vanilla, plum preserves, and savory notes of toasted rye bread. The flavors start with jammy blackberry, caramelized vanilla, molasses, and black cherry notes with hints of Herbs du Provence. As the flavors start to evolve and linger on the finish, bright pomegranate, tart plum, American Oak vanilla nuances, and black currants come forth on the palate. Winery Notes

Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015 Product #31858 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015 Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015

Here’s proof that great farming and straight-ahead winemaking can deliver fine Chianti – and even finer value! – from outside the Classico zone.  More and more Chianti is either all Sangiovese or Sangiovese strengthened with dollops of Cabernet or Syrah.  Here, a family dedicated to natural, organic, farming turns back to Tuscan tradition to make Chianti from an old-school blend of grapes:  Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Ciliegiolo.  Sangiovese gives the wine heft and structure, while Canaiolo adds volume, Colorino deepens the color, and Ciliegiolo – Sangiovese’s genetic parent – soft red cherry fruit.

In the fantastic 2015 vintage, all of this comes together to deliver a ripe, zesty, Chianti that’s very easy to drink.  Ripe black and red cherry fruit forms the wine’s core and gains interest and complexity from accents of crushed violets, red licorice, rich earth, and sweet spice accents.  There’s no oak influence at all, allowing the ripe fruit to shine through while retaining outstanding freshness and just the right touch of structure at the end.  A fine party Chianti, for sure, and one that will be as much fun to drink with a big bowl of pasta as with burgers or rosemary-scented pork.

Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Product #32306 (In Stock)
Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015

Check out the back label here - the argument is that a hammer is the right tool for ANY job and that this wine is pretty much the perfect choice for any occasion.  Not sure about the hammer, but we're all-in on the wine!  This is 100% Pinot Noir from Monterey, on California's Central Coast, and the outstanding (for Pinot) 2015 vintage. Perfectly ripe at a very Pinot-like 13.5%, with a just right touch of wood influence and a great, everyday, price, this is built to bring down the house!

Big, fresh, aromas of cherry, plum, cola and a touch of smoke lead to a fresh, sweetly fruited, palate of crushed cherries/berries, spice and earth.  Deliciously unsubtle, it delivers bold flavors without any excess weight and a clean, mouthwatering, finish that will pull your back for more.  Tasting more like $25 than $15, this is a terrific weeknight or party Pinot for this year and next.

Torre A Cona Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2015 Product #33150 (In Stock)
Torre A Cona Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2015 Torre A Cona Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2015

Our first reaction on tasting this ripe and luscious 2015?  Tasted like GREAT $25 Chianti to us...just much less expensive.  It comes from vines about 10km outside Florence, a blend of Sangiovese and Colorino with about 30% aging in wood for 8 months.  This 2015 is the best ever here, just missing Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri status (it earned "Two Glasses, Red" meaning a finalist for the big prize).  Full of bold black cherry and raspberry fruit with a lovely floral perfume that starts on entry and lingers over the fine-grained tannins.  A juicy, mouthwatering, wine with excellent fruit makes a zesty sipper and great companion for pizza, red sauce and burgers.

Shannon Ridge Zinfandel High Elevation 2015 Product #33215 (In Stock)

A fine bargain for rich, robust, Zinfnadel, especially vs. the $23 winery price! This is classic "burger Zin," big (14%) but not huge, with outstanding focus and balance.  Big aromas and flavors of ripe (but not quite jammy) blackberry and dark cherry fruit gain complexity from bold accents of oaky caramel and spice and a nice touch of briary herb.  Mouthfilling and rich, but not at all sweet, this finiesh plush and smooth. Meat. Grill. Zin.

Best vintage yet for this intensely flavored, rich and zesty, take on Pinot Gris. It's jam-packed with aromas and flavors of spiced pear, golden apple, and ginger and wonderfully rich at just 12.5% alcohol.  The spice and ginger notes flow through to the long and mouthwatering finish.  Fresh and flavorful enough to sip on a warm evening, but built to shine at table all year long!

This well-priced California Cab is a true treat.  The aromas and flavors are classic:  red and black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate, spice and herb.  Where this stands out is in how rich, creamy, and chocolaty it feels in your mouth!  With air a bit more vanilla and spice emerge and flow through with juicy raspberry and chocolate flavors on the appealingly sweet and smooth finish.  A fine sipper, great party wine, and fun bottle for burgers or steaks.

Don't let the unusual grape or the dragon's scorch marks on the label scare you - this is a delicious, all-purpose, Italian red from the rarely seen Teroldego grape.  The grape's signature is a dark black color, juicy blackberry and black raspberry fruit, and hints of violet and licorice root.  All are on display here in this fun, lightly tannic, zesty red that finishes with a big squirt of dark fruit, licorice and lavender. A great match for pork or pizza!

Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015

Is this the greatest bone-dry Riesling in the world?  It's in the running, but it runs away with "best value" honors in the category and may hold the record for the most 90+ point ratings.  Intense lemon-lime, chalk, and floral herb aromas lead to a sizzling, dry, palate of yellow-green citrus, ginger, white pepper, peach, and more.  Finishes stony, long, and bone dry with a lingering touch of honeysuckle and lime zest.  Brilliant stuff.

"Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long."  James Suckling 95-96 points

Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2015 375ml Talley Vineyards Chardonnay Estate 2015 375ml

A ripe but restrained style of Chardonnay from one of California's coolest growing areas. A fun dinner or pre-dinner treat!

"Aged in French oak barrels, 25% of them new, for 16 months. Limpid yellow. Potent, mineral-accented tropical and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and a sexy floral overtone. Taut, minerally and delineated on the palate, which displays juicy pear, tangerine and pineapple flavors that become deeper with air. Concentrated yet lively as well, closing taut and very long, leaving dusty mineral and citrus pith notes behind."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"Opening with exuberant white peach, lemon curd and grapefruit notes with suggestions of marzipan and crushed stones, the medium-bodied 2015 Chardonnay Estate delivers refreshing citrus and minerally flavors with a racy acid line and good length."Wine Advocate 90 points
