Punggl Pinot Grigio 2016 $19.99
Intense and flavorful Pinot Grigio that is both big and rich. Think it can’t happen? Think again. This wine from Nals Magreid’s modern winery wonder produces golden hued vino chocked with mango and pineapple while retaining a fresh and yeasty goodness after seeing eight months in neutral oak barrels and extensive lees stirring. I challenge Pinot Grigio haters crying about the grapes lack of flavor to sample this wine and carry on with their nonsense. Alto Adige consistently turns out some of the world’s best white wines. Considering the price point this wine is an absolute steal.
Paleokerisio Semi-Sparkling Orange Wine 2016 $19.99
PALEO-KER-EE-SEE-O Ok, forget trying to pronounce it (It just means old fashioned). Just call it the Greek orange wine and enjoy it! This wine is one of a kind and crafted in a traditional method with indigenous white and red grapes (97% Debina, 3% Vlahiko ). The skin fermentation takes it to a honey, tea, or cognac color which people have taken to calling orange wine. Imagine a Basque cider crossed with a farmhouse style beer, then blended with a white wine and a Lambrusco. Wonderful aromas of baked pear, cinnamon apples, orange peel, and mountain herbs - To try it - is to be hooked!
LOVE RED Broc Cellars 2016 $22.99
The unstoppable force of nature that is Broc LOVE RED returns just in time for Valentine’s Day! Many of you enjoyed this on the first trip around and we were pumped to hear about its return. Chris Brockway is one of my favorite winemakers. His wines are always exciting. Carignan, Syrah and Valdiguie grapes picked early to lock in freshness and acidity combined with wholly unique flavors make it a supremely refreshing red wine, delicious sip after sip. I’ve compared it to an electric black raspberry Jolly Rancher, A juice box, Purple blooming flowers, even hookah tobacco. This is the ultimate red wine aperitif! Serve with a little chill on the bottle and share with loved ones.
Chateau Tire Pe DieM Bordeaux 2016 $19.99
Another something you should try? Unoaked red Bordeaux. This 100% Merlot is a game changer. Chosen and hand harvested by David and Hélène Barrault from this small organic vineyard since 1997. Blessed with rich clay and limestone soils this vineyard possesses fantastic southern exposures and overlooks the Gironde River. The Barrault’s farm ten to fifteen year-old vines organically and great care is taken to gently extract the supple fruit and terroir. The wine under goes concrete tank fermentation for up to 10 months in order to keep the vibrant red currant and crushed plum and sweet herbed excitement unoaked. This is a great peek right into the soul of Bordeaux.
Caburnio Toscana 2013 $19.99
Always a solid entry into the Super Tuscan field year after year, this vintage is no different. Tenuta Monteti produces just three wines. Born from their little corner of Tuscany, these wines always drink beyond their dollar cost. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc. 50% of the blend is fermented in steel and the remaining 50% stored in French oak barriques for 14 months , 30% of which new and 70% of second or third passage.
