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

Scaia Corvina Veneto 2015 Product #31789 (In Stock)

Corvina is best known as the lead grape in the red blends of Valpolicella and Amarone, but here it shines all on it's own! Big, ripe, black cherry and blackberry fruit form the wine's core with accents of spices, black tea and crushed herb.  Fleshy and round, there's just enough acidity at the end to keep things fresh.  A great daily red, built to enjoy with all kinds of food and priced to open another bottle as the meal winds down.

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

Paul D Muller Thurgau RoMaNa 2015 Product #31239 (In Stock)
Paul D Muller Thurgau RoMaNa 2015 Paul D Muller Thurgau RoMaNa 2015

Paul Direder remains as committed as ever to his great value "liter bottle" value wines, but he's branching out to try new things - and we're very impressed!  This is 100% Muller-Thurgau, a much maligned German crossing that makes insipid wines at high yields.  Here very old vines give tiny numbers of berries and huge amounts of flavor and fun!  The wine smells fresh and ripe with notes of white peach, apricot, crushed herb and more jumping from the glass.  On the palate it's creamy in texture and loaded with juicy apricot fruit, more grassy herb and a hint of lychee.  Kind of like Sauvignon Blanc with apricot replacing the grapefruit, but clearly uniquely delicious.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015 Product #31343 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2015

The 2015 edition of this customer and staff favorite Sauvignon Blanc starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

100 year-old vine complexity at a steal of a price. A regular "Best Buy" and 90 point winner, the not yet reviewed 2015 is especially delicious.  Big aromas of red currant, strawberry, blood orange and crushed flowers lead to juicy, fresh, flavors of ripe fruit and dark chocolate.  Finishes silky and pure with fine tannins and length.  As Josh Raynolds said of the 2013, "Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one."

Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  In 2015, shows even more weight and richness but stays fresh and easy-drinking from beginning to end. Fun stuff and great value!

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!

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #31718 (In Stock)
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2015

What makes a perfect Spring/Summer party/back deck/casual entertaining white wine?  It seems to us that it should be fresh, crisp and refreshing – if you’re getting hot, it should cool you off.  It should have good body and weight so it can be enjoyed with treats like fresh seafood, grilled chicken or even hot dogs.  But, it should also have the zestiness and herbal complexity to be a perfect companion to fresh green salads.  And, in a perfect world, it should be at least a little distinctive so it stands out from the ocean of grocery store Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio out there – but without standing out too far on price.

This is that wine!  It’s made from certified organic fruit grown by young Rioja winemaker Miguel Merino Navajas in vineyards located in the far East of La Mancha – where the hills begin to rise to mountains and cool air pours down nightly to preserve freshness.  Spain’s Verdejo grape gives this a nice dose of tangerine juice, orange zest, and good body.  Sauvignon Blanc provides a burst of refreshing white grapefruit, a touch of lime, and just a refreshing dusting of fresh grass.   As the winemaker says, “Perfect to drink with Tapas, salads and vegetable dishes, all kinds of pasta, mild cheeses and exotic cuisine. It also goes great with fish, seafood, grilled meats or just a glass on its own.”

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.

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.

Kind of an old-school South-of-France red here with a bit of modern polish.  The blend is old-timey with 40% Grenache, 40% Caladoc, 10% Syrah and 10% Marselan all done in tank.  You'll certainly taste the warm, sunshiny, climate here in ripe plum and black raspberry fruit and there's a nice dose of black olive, thyme and lavender, too.  But the flavors stay as fresh as a daisy right on through the dusty, lightly chewy, finish.  Great all-purpose bistro red at a fine, weeknight, price.

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
