St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 Product #32033 (In Stock)
St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016

St. Kilda Chardonnay pretty much exacly what you hope for (but don't often get) in a fine value Chardonnay: refreshing, fruit filled, and balanced.  Take a sniff and enjoy the aromas of ripe pineapple and golden delicious apple. Take a sip and enjoy those same ripe fruit flavors along with just a hint of oak, just enough to round out the flavors and add a hint of nutty complexity; just enough to make the wine really say “Chardonnay” and not “anonymous cheap white wine.”

It finishes fresh and mouthwateringly clean, with just a touch of juicy apple flavor lingering on your palate. If you’ve got a crowd descending on your house for a Mothers’ Day, graduation, or upcoming Fathers’ Day gathering, this is a wine to stock up on a case or two. You’ll have it to pull out any time you need something to serve at a party or just crack open at the end of a long day.

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

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 Product #31485 (In Stock)
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.

Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2013 Product #31638 (In Stock)
Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2013 Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva 2013

If you enjoy juicy Cotes du Rhone, fruit-forward California Rhone Rangers, and plummy Spanish Tempranillo, then do not miss this spectacular Portuguese value. You’ll love the sophisticated aromas of graphite, crushed berry, fresh mint, smoke and black plum.  Sweetly fruited and supple on the palate with more currant, blackberry, and raspberry fruit accented by notes of baker’s chocolate, spice, licorice, and berry blossoms.  The flavors are very clear and delineated and the texture much more suave than you’d expect from such a young wine – especially one made from 10 different Old World grapes.  The tannins have softened since the review below, so enjoy right now with grilled foods and warm weather!

"Six months in a mix of French and Portuguese oak has given this wine a rich, smooth character. Produced from a field blend of more than 40 different varieties, the wine is stylishly structured and ripe with blackberry fruits."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Castil Harria Reserva Navarra 2005 Product #31655 (In Stock)
Castil Harria Reserva Navarra 2005 Castil Harria Reserva Navarra 2005

The ability of even pretty modest Tempranillo-based Spanish wines to age well is on display here in spades.  On release, this was a nice little $15 red from a good co-op in Navara, not far from Rioja.  The co-op's members grow mainly Garnacha, but this wine takes advanage of some plots of rich and dark-fruited Temparnillo given extra lift from dashes of Garnacha, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.  At age 11, the wine has held onto its fruit - bright cherry with a hint of Grenache-y strawberry - nicely and shows layer upon layer of mellow oak spice.  Fine and dusty tannins give support but certainly don't get in the way of casual sipping. And as the wine has gained age and complexity, the price has just gone down.  Well worth a try!

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.

Finca Antigua Tempranillo La Mancha 2012 Finca Antigua Tempranillo La Mancha 2012

A terrific Tempranillo from the windmill-dotted plains of La Mancha.  Excellent ripeness gives plenty of blackberry and black plum fruit and nine months in American oak adds complex spice and herb accents.  Enough volume to give heft here and make this a fine cookout or roasted meat red, but also enough softness and suppleness of structure for solo sipping.  Fine value, too.

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!

Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Product #32008 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016

Here’s the bottom line:  if you love great Provençal rosé, then you’re going to flip for this wine and struggle to believe how inexpensive it is.  In what’s shaping up to be the finest French rosé vintage of at least the past decade, Baside’s Cotes du Rhone Rosé competes with some of the finest wines of the vintage on quality and simply crushes even average bottlings on price.

We’ve come to really love the simple, clean, approach Vincent and Stephanie Boyer bring to growing and making wine.  They farm family vineyards in and around Vissan, a cooler slice of the Southern Rhone not far from the foothills of the Alps.  They grow their grapes organically, keep yields low, and do as little as possible in the winery to allow the quality of their fruit to shine through in your glass.  The 2016 Rose is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault and 100% delicious.  Huge aromas of strawberry, peach, watermelon, cherry and dusty herb really explode from your glass.  Then those mid-summer fruit flavors fill every nook and cranny of your mouth with extra lift from notes of citrus zest, more herb, and watermelon rind pickle – sweet, sour and spicy.  The finish is chalky, mouthwatering and dry, pulling you back for sip after sip.

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #32016 (In Stock)
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016

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.”

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Product #32020 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

It possesses excellent delineation as well as lots of blueberry and sweet and sour cherry fruit intermixed with notions of chalk and strawberries. Medium-bodied and fruity with attractive texture as well as purity, it should drink well for several years."Wine Advocate 88 points

Half Bottles!  Perfect for an evening sip. 

"A winner from the Milhade family, Chateau Recougne has a reputation for lasting 20-30 years in the bottle in many vintages. I do not think the 2011 has that much staying power, but it over-delivers in body, richness, density and length. It is a shockingly good effort displaying a dark ruby color as well as abundant notes of earth, licorice and black currants, surprising body, richness and depth. A major sleeper of the vintage, it should drink well for 7-8 years."Wine Advocate 88 points
