2019 "Initial R" Rosé (Rocalière, Domaine la)

Domaine la Rocalière, "Initial R" Rosé, Southern Rhone, France 2018 {organic} 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah

RIPE RED RASPBERRY RICHNESS, SPLENDID SPICE & TANTALIZING TANG

“Vin de France” or “Tavel by any other name”? This new Domaine La Rocalière offering’s packaging tells us very little: it’s from France and it’s a "rosé wine." Its appearance, on the other hand, speaks volumes (750ml, to be precise). Deep transparent red with an almost iridescent magenta flourish, it doesn’t have the look of a typical, pale, Mediterranean French rosé. Instead, it's deep and dark yet still refreshing – a dead-ringer for the famed wines of Tavel but clocking in at half the price. A WINE AUTHORITIES EXCLUSIVE!

Serving Suggestion: Vietnamese grilled shrimp & pork w/ rice vermicelli, basil, & bean sprouts. Creamy goats milk cheeses.

Crank Arm Brewing, "Whitewall Wheat" American-Belgo style Wit, 4pk 16oz cans

Whitewall Wheat is our take on a Belgian classic Witbier. While we use traditional wheat malt and Belgian yeast typical of Wit style beers, we do not add coriander or orange zest instead, we utilize American variety Citra hops for flavor, aroma and dry hop. The bouquet and palate of this beer is juicy grapefruit with a hint of grassiness. Light in body, this beer drinks well year-round but is exceptional when the weather gets warm.

Bodegas Pardevalles, Albarín, Leon, Spain 2020

100% Albarin

{sustainable}

LEMON-LIME, TROPICAL, ADDICTIVELY AROMATIC

That's not a typo! This is Albarín, not Albariño. Despite almost being homonyms, these two grapes are completely unrelated. Still incredibly rare, Albarín was on the verge of extinction before its revival at the hands of Pardevalles. Medium bodied and as fun as can be, with exuberantly fresh aromas, it will have you asking yourself why you've never had an Albarín before.

2019 Alvarinho "Contacto" (Mendes, Anselmo)

Anselmo Mendes, "Contacto" Alvarinho,

Vinho Verde, Portugal, 2019

100% Alvarinho (Albariño)

HONEYSUCKLE, APRICOT, GRANITIC MINERALITY, DRY & RACY

Winemaker Anselmo Mendes, a native of Monção in northwest Portugal, is passionate about both his vineyards and the native varietals which inhabit them. He shares with the world's most conscientious vignerons the important tenet that quality wine is created first and foremost in the vineyard, marrying each grape variety he cultivates with the section of land which best compliments it. His Alvarinho is a remarkably complex wine with focused mineral, elegantly lean fruit, and the sort of unrelenting acidity which makes it particularly well suited for fresh seafood.

Serving Suggestion: Sardinhas assadas (chargrilled sardines) with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and shallots. Spicy Vietnamese vermicelli with an assortment of shellfish, mint, and lemongrass.

Socalos do Douro, Alvarinho Superior, Vinho Verde (Minho), Portugal 2020

{organic} 100% Alvarinho (Albariño)

PINEAPPLE & PEAR, CITRUSY MINERAL ZEST, KISS O' BANANA

Albariño can still be your favorite Spanish white, but it originates just south of the border in Portugal’s Minho (the Vinho Verde region). Alvarinho, as it is known here, is partially responsible for the fresh, fizzy stuff that that we associate with the region’s best-known wines, but it can also be resplendently restrained and mineralistic or fleshy, full-bodied, and brimming with tropical assertiveness. This offering luxuriously leans toward the latter option.

Serving Suggestion: Citrus-marinated grilled squid tacos. Pineapple-anchovie pizza w/ diced crimini mushrooms & ricotta – gifts from the sea & from the forest...

2013 Amarone della Valpolicella (Guerrieri-Rizzardi)

Guerrieri-Rizzard, Amarone della Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy, 2013

{organic} 43% Corvina, 31% Corvinone, 16% Rondinella, 10% Barbera

BLACK CHERRY PRESERVES & MISSION FIG, PORT-LIKE INTENSITY

It can be lonely at the top, and Amarone is almost completely unique in the world of dry red wines. Made from the concentrated nectar of half-dried grapes, it accounts for some of the densest, most decadent oenological experiences possible. Clocking in at 16% alcohol (not atypical), this beautiful beast owes its imposing stature and luxurious lushness not only to the Amarone process but to low yields, old vines, and the presence of local but lesser-used powerhouse grape Corvinone. Bellissimo e nerissimo!

Serving Suggestion: Rare, chargrilled sirloin w/ bourbon glaze & roasted sweet potato & kale. Sheep’s milk & blue cheeses w/ pan-seared figs & balsamic reduction.

Trento, Alto Adige, Italy NV

CITRUS & HERBS, GENTLE SWEETNESS, PLEASANTLY BITTER

While this is a recent addition to the U.S. shelf, it's one of the oldest wine based aperitifs from Trento in Italy's Alpine north.  Made with Trebbiano & Cochinea with infusions of citrus and herbs by the same family for over 4 generations, the Cappelletti Americano (derived from "amer" meaning bitter) is referred to as "specialino" by the locals and is about as ubiquitous a happy hour libation in the Treveneto as Prosecco!

Serving Suggestion: Use in a classic Negroni or Venetian Spritz...or really take it to outerspace and mix with reposado tequila, coffee liquor, and Mole bitters..."Nanu Nanu!"

WHITE PLUM & ZESTY LIME, BRIGHT MINERALITY, FRAGRANT HONEYSUCKLE

This blockbuster Anjou Blanc echoes the elegance of whites from its area of production at twice the price. A surprisingly elusive grape in the contemporary world of wine, Chenin is a king of acidity and complexity in the Loire Valley. While sometimes unbalanced and lacking in fruit, this example from Domaine Cady is delicious and exquisitely chiseled. Looking for an elegant warm-weather sipper? Keep this unbelievably tasty white chilled in your fridge to impress your friends or simply to be reminded that the world is full of beautiful things.

Cabernet Franc is a key player in illustrious Bordeaux blends, and the solo star of the Middle Loire- including the less famous Anjou Rouge. These often fall into a fun category the French call “vins de soif”: bottles whose sublime simplicity keeps you reaching across the table for another pour. The Cadys’ version is translucently ruby; savory herbs and tangy cherry notes keep you refreshed. Try a slight chill on this one in the summer. 

Serving Suggestion: Think of drinking this by the carafe outside a cafe, w/ a fresh baguette, local cheeses, & cornichons.

Since 1340 and throughout 18 generations, the Cordero di Montezemolo estate has been owned by the same family. Arneis, while not a household name here in the US, is the most respected white variety of the Piemonte. Some can lack structure and clock in at unattractively high prices, but this example delivers complexity, memorable richness, and a perfect balance courtesy of zesty acidity - simultaneously indulgent and lively. A truly lovely drink!

2015 Bairrada Tinto "Encontro" (Encontro, Quinta do)

Quinta do Encontro, Tinto, Bairrada, Portugal 2015

80% Baga, 20% Merlot

BLACK CURRANT FRUIT, LIGHT SPICE, INTENSE FLAVORS

Baga, the primary grape of Bairrada, is known for powerful wines with sometimes tongue-drying tannins. This beauty from Encontro tempers that rustic character with a small addition of Merlot and fully ripened Baga that accentuates its lush, raisiny character. Don't be afraid - this is an exquisite wine that tastes twice as expensive and shows what can happen when wild grapes are in the hands of a skilled winemaker.

Serving Suggestion: This is a big wine that needs some hearty cuisine, heavy on the protein and low on sweetness. Steak makes sense.

40% Baga, 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz

FIRM PRUNE, WALNUT & LEATHER, SMOKE & EARTH

Baga, a sturdy black grape with firm tannin and a reputation for ageworthiness hasn't perhaps found its way onto the radar of the average American wine lover just yet, but it's nevertheless part of Iberia's dream team of outstanding and exclusive grape varietals. Complex, rustic, and somewhat anachronistic in its untamed, earthy disposition yet in possession of the wisdom and elegance that can only come with maturity, this wine helps us get our Baga fix and offers an ideal introduction to the grape and its northern Portuguese homeland, Bairrada.

Serving Suggestions: Generously marbled skirt steak & broiled potatoes w/ parsley & chives. Burritos w/ black refried beans, puréed sweet potato, garlic, cilantro, & sour cream.

Barbera (Saccoletto, Azienda Agricola Vitivinicola Daniele)

Azienda Agricola Daniele Saccoletto, Barbera "Minerva 240," Piemonte, Italy NV

{organic} 100% Barbera

BLACK CHERRY & CASSIS, EXQUISITE BALSAMICO, JASMINE INCENSE

Signor Daniele Saccoleto solidified his path toward passionate viticulture four decades ago as a grape grower who leased vineyards in order to hone his craft. Purchasing land and gradually updating his winemaking facilities, he eventually emerged as the vigneron that he is today - a humble iconoclast who refuses to compromise quality in the name of familiarity or comfortable mediocrity. His priorities find him working outside of the Italian authorities’ system of pedigrees, and this is a bruiser of a Barbera – albeit an elegantly complex one. Foresty black fruit reveals the ethereal perfumes of bergamot and bittersweet incense. Captivating...

Serving Suggestion: Salumi spread w/ cheeses like robiola & fontina. Wintery leek salad w/ boiled fingerling potatoes, peppery arugula, garlic, beet, & balsamic vinegar.

Oh, and making incredible wine. This powerful Barbera is an homage to the noble donkey, the raising of which has been a passion for Matteo and Luca's mother Bruna for decades. This vintage could be a homemade wine drunk from a goat scrotum bota bag. Get your donkey on!

Oh, and making incredible wine. This powerful Barbera is an homage to the noble donkey, the raising of which has been a passion for Matteo and Luca's mother Bruna for decades. Mostly complex leathery red fruit reminiscent of a glaze or reduction, the wine gains edge with a tiny hint of tarry earth and subtle barnyardiness. Apropos for a wine named after a donkey.

2018 Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanin" (Casaccia, La)

La Casaccia, Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanìn", Piemonte, Italy 2018

{organic} 100% Barbera

LUSH BLACKBERRY, SUBTLY PETILLANT, HAZELNUT & FUR

So many of our newer Italian offerings come with a story, and this is no exception. La Casaccia translated roughly to "ruined house" (we originally heard a decisively less kind translation), and Giovanni Rava does apparently go about making his wines in an atmosphere of magisterial decrepitude. There's nothing ramshackle about this beautifully complex and structured Barbera though; it's built like the proverbial brick...uh...wine cellar. Rich threads of blackberry and traditional prickle weave with that great Piemontese woodsy herbalosity to form a solid braid of intoxicating aroma and flavor.

Serving Suggestions: Flank steak sandwich with steak out of the fridge from last night. Whip up some garlic mayo and serve with red onion on a slipper-soft ciabatta. That's a proper builder's lunch.

RIPE STRAWBERRY & RASPBERRY, TURKISH DELIGHT, EXOTIC PERFUME

In the Early 1950’s, Plinio Marchesini began humbly making wine on the east bank of Lake Garda in his Bardolino vineyards. His earliest wines were originally meant to be enjoyed with his close friends. However, in the 1990’s, he passed the reins over to his son, Marcello, who has since garnered much acclaim for his Chiaretto, the celebrated local style of rosato. Ethereal flavors of fresh strawberries, raspberries, honey, and rosewater are followed by a faint suggestion of salinity on the finish.

Serving Suggestion: Pistachio-crusted grilled striped bass w/ a watermelon basil salad & sautéed summer squash.

ZESTY RED BERRY. BLOSSOMS & CITRUS. JUICY & FRESH

Guerrieri-Rizzardi’s “Keya,” short for Chiaretto, bears a surprisingly playful name from an estate (or pair of 1600s estates that merged through marriage just over a century ago) with a history as rich as this one’s, but maybe it should’t be surprising considering the solar-powered, forward-thinking winery’s current incarnation. The rosé, itself, is every bit as playful, bursting with snappy, ripe raspberry & cherryish red fruit, assertively floral aromas, and a finish that delightfully manages to recall watermelon Bubble Yum…yum!!!

Serving Suggestion: General Tso-esque chicken thighs w/ hoisin sauce & Korean red chili flakes w/ thin yuzu-infused sesame seed asparagus. Red radicchio risotto w/ white wine & parmesan.

Bolla is bollocks; this will make you want to kiss your fingertips.

Fragrant! Aromatic! Floral! Baking Spices! Vermouth! Did we mention it smells good? Prestigious, even! If you're new to Gamay, you'll find that it can press the bounds between engaging in an epicurean experience and discovering a new dimension to one's olfactory!  One might think that this wine grew straight into Ninth Street Flowers from Spice Bazaar. Truth is, the cuvée "Prestige" comes from 30 rolling acres of organically farmed Burgundian earth and aged in oak to profound result. Its mouth-filling lushness couples with a grippy tannic structure to such an elegant effect. Yet, somehow it maintains an unbearable lightness of being... unbearable due only to the fact that they can't fit more than five glasses in a bottle! 

Serving Suggestion: The sultry, savory swindlings of your favorite Chinese restaurant. Five Spice Chicken. Salty sweet potatoes fries!

Doniene Gorrondona, Txakoli, Bizkaiko Txakolina, Spain, 2020

85% Hondarribi Zuri, 12% Mune Mahatsa (Folle Blanche) and 3% Hondarribi Beltza

TART KIWI & GREEN APPLE, DRY & RAZORY, FLINTY MINERAL

Taking it's name from the Bay of Biscay, the Bizkaiko zone of Txakolina production brings us, perhaps, the most diversity stylistically. This example has only the faintest touch of the spritz that Txakoli is famous for, but retains the insanely pronounced minerality and refreshingly tangy fruit. Flavorful and chiseled in structure, this delicate white subtly layers aromas of melon and kiwi with the trademark tart apple and lime flavors of this Basque-tastic wines.

Serving Suggestion: Mackerel sashimi. Salsa verde. Shrimp ceviche w/ garlic and salty chorizo.

Domaine la Bouysse, Blanc "B" (Aude-Hauterive), Languedoc, France, 2020

{organic} 80% Grenache Blanc, 20% Chardonnay

STONE FRUIT & RIPE CITRUS, HONEYSUCKLE & GARDENIA, WHITE PEPPER

Not far from Grenache Blanc's northeastern Spanish origins, this ripe rendition (w/ a dash of Chardonnay) is fresh, full, and brimming with sunshiny energy. Siblings Martine & Christophe make us so happy! We've been working with them for well over a decade to bring the gems of their southwestern corner of the Languedoc to the Triangle. This one bursts with the flavors and aromas of white flowers and peach with glimpses of mandarin orange.

Serving Suggetions: Plump prawns w/ a mango lime marinade & frites w/ aioli. Orange-glazed chicken thighs w/ jalapeno jelly & jasmine rice w/ toasted hazelnuts.

Domaine des Pères de l'Eglise, Vin de France "L'Esprit" Blanc, Rhone Valley, France 2020

{organic} Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Ugni Blanc

STONE FRUIT & TROPICAL VIBES, FLORAL & LUSH

Rhone whites are absolutely delightful, and it's a shame that we don't encounter them more often, but it's understandable as they only account for about 5% of the prolific valley's total output. This golden-hued from the Chateauneuf maestroes at Pères de l'Église is all up in the house - exotically perfumed and luscious yet dry and youthfully refreshing - just the sort of DAILY™ Rhone white sipper that we'd keep our fingers crossed for.

2019 Blanc "Le Grand Mayol" (Borie La Vitarèle, Domaine)

Domaine Borie La Vitarèle, Blanc "Le Grand Mayol", Languedoc, France 2019

{biodynamic} Bourboulenc, Clairette, Vermentino

FLORAL, MINERAL, REFRESHING, CITRUS & HINTS OF TROPICALITY.

Borie la Vitarele, in the heart of the esteemed Saint Chinian region, benefits from the warm climate and clayey-limestone soil and has been organic and biodynamic since 1998. This white Rhone blend, a harder-to-find style, is fresh, dry, unoaked, and silky. Its balanced mineral, gentle white fruit, medium body, and peach notes are as refreshing as a Mediterranean breeze. A fantastic summer sipper on its own or with lighter fare or seafood.

Serving Suggestion: Steamed lobster w/ drawn butter. Panko-fried goat cheese on butter lettuce w/ green apple, toasted almonds & a creamy lemon dressing.

{biodynamic} 40% Chenin Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Bouysselet Blanc

RIPE BOSC PEAR, GREEN APPLE AND SPICE, FRONTON EST BON

Fronton’s Chateau la Colombiere has long championed not just the traditional grapes of their corner of Sud Ouest France, but also the obscure ones. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that this vintage skips the Mauzac and Len de l’El of previous years for Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. Colombiere still puts their distinctive touch on this blend by adding 20% Bouysslet Blanc, a grape almost extict before they rescued it from a vine nursery. The Bouysselet adds just hint of waxy richness, while its partners bring snappy freshness.

Serving Suggestion: Claypot crab w/ brown sugar, sesame, & glass noodles. Tropical slaw w/ pineapple, mango, cilantro, & lime juice.

2020 Blanc "Venus de Pinchinat" (Pinchinat, Domaine)

Domaine Pinchinat, "Venus de Pinchinat" Blanc, Provence, France 2020

{organic} 100% Rolle (Vermentino)

FLORAL, GRAPEFRUIT & PEACH SKIN. VERY DRY.

Fresh, crisp, dry and clean, this white is made from Rolle, a grape varietal that’s obscure to most Americans, but essential in southern France and even southern Italy were it’s known as Vermentino. Considered to be one of the greatest white wines with seafood (especially Bouillabaisse), Rolle has sauvignon blanc-like tendencies but is less overpowering while still keeping a nice dry edge. Another of our favorites from the great organic vineyard Domaine de Pinchinat in Provence.

Serving Suggestions: An awesome match with bouillabaisse or fruits de mer, but any garlicky seafood dish loves this wine.

ELEGANTLY TROPICAL, SPICY, EXOTIC BASIL

This is a very limited white from Casa Los Frailes. Only 500 cases are produced each year from meticulously selected grapes, and the result is every bit as exotic and enchanting as it is rare. With bright tangy fruit reminiscent of tangerine, white peach, and mango and beautiful flourishes of basil, shea butter, and vanilla, there's no mistaking that this is truly something special. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Malvasia de Stiges

LEMON & PEAR, ULTRA ZESTY, FIRM FINISH

From the highest elevation vineyard in all of the Penedès appellation comes this sophisticated white from just outside of Barcelona. This is perhaps Spain's equivalent to the famously fine, very dry wines of Chablis, Muscadet, and Rheingau. This blend is typically used to make Cava, but this still wine gives us a closer look at their subtle and complex layers. This has been a favorite of ours for years!

2018 Blanc de Noir Trocken (Schneider, Georg Albrecht)

100% Pinot Noir

WHITE STONEFRUIT & QUINCE, GENTLE FLINT & FOREST BLOSSOMS

While white Pinot Noir might not be foremost on the radar for most of us, the red grape variety has a wealth of experienced being vinified without skin contact in order to produce clear-ish (aka white) wines. In fact, France’s Champagne began utilizing this technique even before exploring sparkling wine! This still rendition from the always awesome Albrecht Schneider brings together piquant orchard-ish notes with a delicately floral perfume in round yet fresh, elegant package that’s memorable, distinctive, and delicious.

Serving Suggestion: Pork chops w/ baked apples & halved boiled potatoes w/ dill. Savory beet salad w/ citrus, chèvre, & quince/sherry vinaigrette.

2019 Blanc, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Blanc "Sud Absolu", Rhone Valley, France 2019

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

APRICOT & PINEAPPLE, SULTANA, DRY WITH VIBRANT ACIDITY

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, an ancient pan-Mediterranean grape with no shortage of clout in this corner of the Southern Rhone has long been typecast as a grape whose undeniable potential for decadence and dessert should be pursued to the absolute fullest. Taking a totally different tact with this cuvée, Ligière follows a decidedly non-dessert, dry route here and employs the fiercely characterful grape as a delicious quaffer. This is an unusually refreshing yet perfumed example of what is most likely the original “Muscat." It is, quite literally, the granddaddy of Torrontes, and we highly recommend it to fans of that Argentine grape!

Serving Suggestion:  Crab-based bouillabaisse w/ copious rouille (French Mediterranean spicy olive oil-infused mayonnaise w/ garlic & saffron). Similarly, spider rolls w/ scallion, lots of masago, & aioli!

{organic} 90% Palomino, 10% Pedro Ximenez (Amphora aged)

LEMON, SAGE, SALINE MINERAL. DRY, JUICY, CLEAN & PRETTY.

As the label suggests, this wine is all business when it comes to seafood. Juicy, dry and evocative of the sea, even before the aromas of your seafood dinner have chimed in. Made from the key grapes of the Sherry (Jerez) region, but not given the distinctive sherry-aging treatment; so think subtle Chablis, Verdicchio, or Muscadet as benchmarks. This young couple, Alex and Rocio, are hitting it out of the park. A Wine Authorities exclusive.

This is Forlong’s Palomino-based take on a rich White Burgundy. Considering that the greatest White Burgs are grown in limestone soils, and the soil at Forlong is so limestony that it is pure white (Albariza), this is a great foundation. While it shows influence from its French target, Forlong winegrowers Alex and Rocio allow the wine to thrive in its own Adalucian personality, making this a singular wine of great class!

PEAR & LEMON, ALMOND, CHAMOMILE & SHERRYISH WAXINESS

Gleamingly golden in the glass, this barrel-aged white is a a powerful and elegant enigma. Combining Tempranillo Blanco (a light skinned mutation of the famous red variety occasionally referred to as Blanca del País) with very ripe Sauvignon Blanc, Viura, and Chardonnay has resulted in a distinctive blend that’s one of a kind yet has the uncanny ability to remind us simultaneously of rich, white Rioja, Fino Sherry, and toast-driven Cali Chard.

{organic} 100% Palomino aged with flor 24 months.

SALINE, LEATHER, HAZELNUT, SHERRY, GREEN PEPPER, FRITES.

Harkening back to the methods of producing sherry prior to the 20th century, this is an exciting, micro-production, un-fortified version of a classic Oloroso. Only one barrel was made of this subtle “sherry” from Palomino grapes dried for 48 hours in the Andalcian sun to increase the sugars enough to boost alcohol above 15% so the flor would thrive. This is a great dry wine, or an great understated sherry, straddling both styles.

This is one juicy and exotic little puppy. The Rueda Perez family started their winery in 2002 after three generations as growers selling their grapes to other wineries. Each wine is from a different single vineyard which gives them flavor characteristics distinctive from each other. This cuvee, from the Buron vineyard, is the most focused, accessible and fruity.

2018 Blaufränkisch Eisenberg (Jalits)

100% Blaufränkisch

CASSIS & CRANBERRY, GRAPHITE & SMOKY WHITE PEPPER

Blaufränkisch, the Burgenlandian OG (often upstaged by its more famous offspring, Zwiegelt), is Austria’s deeper, darker native red (or “blue” variety, as they say). Quintessentially Central European, the grape is among the most important grapes of the Czech Republic and Hungary, but its Burgenland home turf is where it does its best work. The Eisenberg (Iron Mountain) DAC of southern Burgenland is especially homed in on the variety’s strengths, its stony, crystalline vineyards imbuing wines with enhanced structure and elegance. Why be blue?

62% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

BLACK PLUM & REDCURRANT, ROASTED CACAO NIBS & PEPPERCORNS

It’s quite possible that the producers of Washington’s Yakima and Colombia valleys have recognized Merlot’s greatness more than any other wine region of the new world. Here, as in Bordeaux’s Right Bank, it doesn’t play second fiddle to half-brother, Cabernet Sauvignon, and speaking of Bordeaux, this Merlot-piloted blend from Airfield contains each of the variety’s colleagues from its home turf. Even Petit Verdot, which is typically found in the vineyards of the Left Bank makes an appearance, well suited to the hot dry conditions east of the Cascades.

Serving Suggestion: Filet mignon w/ sautéd flat beans & boiled fingerling potatoes w/ chives. Hearty empanadas w/ mole, sweet potato, & tempeh (or dark meat of turkey for a more carnivorous option).

Born in the vineyards "between two seas" this equal-parts cuvée of Cabernet Franc with its offspring, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, drifts calmly yet energetically on its own sea of zesty acidity and vibrant red fruit. Recalling raspberry and dried cranberry, the fruit is ribboned through with wisps of floral and herbaceous perfume. The estate’s Jean-Luc Buffeteau, a trained enologist, treats each varietal differently for this cuvée in order for individual strengths to shine through.

Though this cuvée from our friends, Céline & Laurent Tripoz, may take its name from the fact that it sees a short period of oak aging in a combination of new and older barrels, oak is far from this gorgeous white's foremost defining characteristic. Brimming with a waxy yeastiness that resembles that of some champagne and a winning combination of golden apple and tangy tropical fruit, this classical southern white Burgundy allows its time in oak to reveal itself as a delectable toasty spice that is as subtle and as integrated as it is sumptuous.

When Philippe and Diane Cauvin were researching the history of winegrowing in their local appellation of Fronton, they came across a grape they didn't know existed. Bouysselet, also called Prunelard Blanc, was previously thought to be the lost green-skinned sibling of the black-skinned Gaillac grape Prunelard. Having found a nursery which kept this vine alive for research purposes (but too little for winemaking), they had it propagated and brought back to life in their vineyard. This is the only Bouysselet in existence, farmed organically from a one acre vineyard, and it is a luscious phoenix of flavor!

Muscular ripeness and beautifully balancing acidity make for an impression that is as pretty as it is powerful. Whispers of Carmenere and Petit Verdot (coupled with French oak aging) lend delicious echos of Cabernet’s Bordelais ancestry. Yum!

Serving Suggestions: Bison burgers w/ sharp cheddar or blue cheese. Poblano enchiladas w/ pinto beans & pepper jack cheese.

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Peñalolén)

Peñalolén, Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile 2017

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot

CURRANT & BLACKBERRY, CLASSIC, BALANCED BY BRIGHTNESS

Not to (almost) admit to judging various books by their covers, but this classically structured Cab from Chile’s Maipo provides a bit of a surprise. Its unconventional, perhaps trendy, label and predictable 14% alcohol might lead one to expect an ultra-modern, aggressively New World-ish outing (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), but this has a brighter, more classically Cab-ish edge that wouldn’t be out of place in riper, more contemporary Left Bank Bordeaux. Hailing from a well-drained, gravelly slope, this impressively structured creature includes small portions of Merlot and Cab Franc in an appropriate nod to Cabernet Sauvignon’s Bordelais traditions.

Serving Suggestion: London broil w/ cracked pink & black peppercorns w/ garlicky gai lan & roasted new potatoes. Empanadas w/ black beans, onion, black olives, & bell pepper.

Cabernet Sauvignon

RIPE & SPICY. BLACK CHERRY & CURRANT. TASTY!

Toni Garriga is a man on a mission. His family has made wine here in the mountains of Penedes for nearly 400 years, but rarely from their own grapes. Beginning in 1985, he decided to focus exclusively on "estate wine," wine made only from the grapes he grows. With great pride he presented us with this Cabernet, spicy and lush with lovely black cherry fruit. He ages it in small French oak barriques for 12 months before bottling to soften it and add complexity. Thanks Toni for this tasty treat!

Serving Suggestions: Pan-grilled Beef Tenderloin over fois gras in a Pedro Ximenez reduction.

{sustainable} 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

CASSIS & BLACK PLUM, ROASTED BELL PEPPER, FRESH & FRAGRANT

Cabernet Sauvignon, like many (if not most) varieties, comes in different shapes and sizes. From the lithe, gleamingly black-fruited output of northwestern Bordeaux to the dense, decadent, and resoundingly ripe renditions of Napa, Cab’s a man of a thousand faces (sorry, Lon!). This rendition from the venerable vineyards of the Glenelly Estate carries off an impressive balancing act, bridging the brighter intensity of the grape with resolutely new-worldish inclinations, robust ripeness, and a pronounced peppery note that wouldn’t be out of place in close relatives Carmenere or Cab Franc. Gussied up with a chocolate-like richness courtesy of a year in French oak, it is delightfully multifaceted.

Serving Suggestion: Beef & lamb sausage w/ coriander seeds, black pepper, & allspice. Roasted poblanos stuffed w/ savory smoked jackfruit.

CLASSIC CASSIS, OAKY VANILLA, BIG & DARK

We're going to the Moon! Moon Mountain of Sonoma (aka Napa's Mount Veeder) is part of the Mayacamas Mountains, which divide the region from Napa. Though the AVA designation here is new, these hillsides are home to some of the most historic mountain vineyards in California, dating to the 1890s. High elevation and rocky, volcanic terrain imbue Moon Mountain Cab with uncommon richness and intensity while Caton gives his wines the deluxe California Cabernet treatment with plenty of French oak barrel aging. The result is sizable with dark fruit, creamy vanilla, and suave tannins that you'll be over the moon for. Only 600 cases made!

{Organic} Nero di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Bombino

DARK RIPE FRUIT & CLAY; TANNIC & BRIGHT; BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED

It's hard to dispute that stony soil makes great wine; it's no wonder that Paolo Petrilli is able to elevate the humble, rustic, and rough Nero di Troia grape to these heights. Not to give all the credit to the earth; Paolo adds a splash of Sangiovese and Montepulciano to soften and round out the wine. Black cherry and pomegranate, a bit of plum, a little white pepper, a dab of wet clay, and a few fallen leaves. “When we started this was a simple, cheap product. I decided to aim for something greater.” Bloody good shot, signore.

Serving Suggestion: Stromboli, filled to bursting w/ mozzarella, provolone piccante, mixed bell peppers, mushrooms, red onions, garlic, & black olives. Or skip the veggies, & layer in finocchiona, Serrano ham, & coppa.

{Organic} Nero di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Bombino

EARTHY, SPICY, DARK FRUIT & BALANCED TANNIN

Around Lucera, in Italy's Puglian peninsula, there was a communal press, with the understanding that when you pressed your grapes, you would take (cacce) your juice and must at the end of the day, so the next farmer could pour his grapes in (mmitte). And now there's a wine region named after this practice, because why not? It's tradition. Paolo Petrilli's red, based on the local Nero di Troia grape, is earthy, spicy, and tannic, well-balanced with acid, with subtle dark fruit and floral notes. He also grows and jars tomatoes, and grows wheat that he turns into pasta. Because why not? It's tradition.

Serving suggestion: Pizza w/ cherry tomatoes, burrata, olive oil, and whole basil leaves. Penne tossed w/ olive oil, sauteed garlic, broccoli rabe, and caciocavallo cheese.

Belle Pente, Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, Oregon 2014

100% Chardonnay

ROUND PINEAPPLE & PEAR, MATURE YET LIVELY

Mature, elegant Chardonnay is something that gets us really excited. Really, quite, very excited.  Unfortunately, few Chardonnays are built to age gracefully, and those that are tend to be prohibitively pricey, but after six years of bottle aging, Belle Pente's Chardonnay is still drinking beautifully.  In one local touch you won't often see, Belle Pente uses 50% homegrown Oregon oak, in addition to 50% French oak.  Despite what sounds like a lot of oak from all over, the wine is not too oaky, since only 10-15% of the barrels are new. Harvesting in two waves gives the wine a perfect balance between rich ripeness and fresh brightness.

2019 Chardonnay (Talley Vineyards)

Talley Vineyards, Chardonnay "Bishop's Peak", San Luis Obispo, California 2018

{sustainable} 100% Chardonnay

PEAR & MEYER LEMON, VANILLA WHISPERS

Talley’s iconic takes on the classic varieties of Burgundy (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) are not only a testament to the estate’s impressive knack for coaxing out classical structure and flavors with an appropriately richer twist, but also a signpost for San Luis Obispo’s aptitude for these grapes’ signature stylings. Obispo means bishop, and the “Bishop’s Peak” cuvée does its name justice with lush citrus and orchard fruit character supported by judicious oaky creaminess. How luxurious!

Serving Suggestion: Gruyère-stuffed chicken breasts & broccolini w/ olive oil & lemon. Yukon gold enchiladas w/ Monterey Jack, spinach, & garlic.

100% Chardonnay

VANILLA, TOAST, APRICOT, MINERALITY, WAXY ALMOND

The Simčič family’s estate is located in Goriška Brda, where the Northern Mediterranean meets the Southern alps. Tragedy struck when the Iron Curtain was drawn up in 1948, subjecting a substantial portion of the yearly grape harvest to government seizure. The Simčič way of life was challenged for many years, but nevertheless they persevered. Now, Edi’s son, Aleks, says this about their passion: “When you taste our wines, you are tasting a bit of freedom.”

Serving Suggestion: Herb crusted cod w/ pea puree. Dungeness crab macaroni & cheese w/ chives. Butternut squash risotto.

2016 Chardonnay "Bunker Hill" (Lingua Franca)

Lingua Franca, Chardonnay "Bunker Hill", Willamette Valley, Oregon, US, 2016

100% Chardonnay

MOUTHWATERING GOLDEN APPLE, GRACEFUL TOAST, LEMON ZEST

Combining zealous zestiness and underlying toasty oak, this Oregonian Chardonnay masterpiece carries itself more like Beaune-borne royalty than the stereotypically buttery denizens of California (we’re not saying all, but you know who you are!) yet manages to be more unto itself than derivative of any particular Chard that’s come before. That said, it’s textbook-ishly orchardy with bright, fragrant tree-fruit and delicately floral notes in a firm, elegant frame. Truly majestic.

Serving Suggestion: Seared scallops w/ clarified butter, lemon zest, & white wine. Nutty Comté, Cantal vieux, or Gruyère.

Five generations of Choblet family winemaking in one elegant bottle. A brilliant effort in UN-oaked Chardonnay winemaking using sustainable agriculture.

This is very old world in style vs. the traditional California style.

While occasionally delving into less expected varieties, San Luis Obispo’s Talley never strays too far from its Burgundian focus, crafting Chardonnays and Pinots that are at once classically composed and imbued with a richness and ripeness that tends to set them apart from their French counterparts – in this case, gentle tropicality and suave vanilla toast.

GOLDEN APPLE, CUT CARROT GREENS, CLEAN MINERALITY

Just an hour and a half west of Cape Town lies the up-and-coming appellation of Robertson and the heavy limestone soil which it shares with some of the greatest white wine regions (like Champagne or Chablis). And while the area doesn’t have the same renown as its chalky-soiled counterparts, the great wines of the region certainly hold their own. “Limestone Hill” greets you with a bouquet of juicy golden apples, leading into an herbaceous note, reminiscent of fennel or carrot tops.

Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Roussanne

APRICOT & SANDALWOOD, VIBRANT & VOLUPTUOUS

Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the undisputed capital of the Southern Rhone. The region’s very name inspires cravings for burgundy-black wines brimming with exoticism. The region’s rare whites, however, are more exotic still and account for less than 10% of the area’s wine. This outstanding offering is robustly redolent yet resplendently refreshing, combining juicy, ripe, golden fruit with a sweet potpourri of flowers, honey, and restrained toast - a golden sunset in the glass.

Serving Suggestion: Seared scallops in a buttery white wine sauce w/ rosemary & garlic. Five-spice roasted butternut squash w/ pine nuts & arugula.

It’s extremely versatile. The Casabianca farm prides itself on its unspoiled landscape, environmental stewardship, and the beautiful wildlife that can be comfortably spotted in its proximity…hopefully while sipping at this ruby-in-a-glass.

BLACK TEA, MEDIUM-BODIED, OPEN, RIPE & SUPPLE

The Gouron family has farmed their estate for five generations in the region of Chinon. The unique gravelly- sloped soils are key to the structure they get from the vines. This cuvée called "Terroir" reflects this gravel and the 50- year old vines planted there. More Pinot Noir-esque in style, the Cabernet Franc here is wide open with a knife edge balance of fruit and acidity from start to finish. Supple and ripe, the finish is pure black tea and red berry fruit. No oak in this cuvée.

Serving Suggestion: A match for seared duck breast with savory thyme and blackberry sauce; or beef tenderloin with sautéed smoked bacon and mushroom topping.

ZIPPY RASPBERRIES, TONS OF FUN, ELECTRIC!

In 2010, after years of working in larger wineries, Chiara Penati and her husband purchased a tiny, 1.5 hectare vineyard in the hills of Tortona, a little known pocket of the Italian Piedmont. They farm their land organically and make their wine naturally – and only about 2,000 cases a year of it. This Barbera-based field blend, which also includes Dolcetto and several other local red grapes, is fantastically fresh with an exciting energy almost reminiscent of Lambrusco – minus the bubbles.

Corbieres, one of the most celebrated corners of France's sprawling Languedoc, is best known for its spicy and very Mediterranean reds. Considering this, perhaps it shouldn't be surprising then that this deep rosé is brimming with the distinctive character of Grenache, spice, and white-peppery mineral. This wine bears more than a passing family resemblance to the region's exotic red wines. Sister and brother, Martine Pagès and Christophe Molinier of Domaine de la Bouysse never fail to impress us with the breadth and quality of their work!

PROVENÇAL HERBS, BLACK RASPBERRY, VIOLETS

Wicked old-vine Carignan, like 150 year old, is the base of this Corbieres called Mazerac. Martine Pages uses these ancient vines to great effect, polishing their power with slight aging in small barriques. What comes through is a fantastic expression of Carignan, packed with dried black raspberries, garrigue (rosemary, thyme, lavender), and a slightly smoky earthiness. The inky purple color of this wine is backed up with the essence of violets. Her best vintage in a decade!

Serving Suggestion: All grilled meats. It was also delicious with a salad of fresh frisée topped with sautéed chicken livers and gizzards then drizzled with the pan drippings touched with sherry vinegar.

Dominated by dark, clay-comprised soils, this plot yields subtler yet potentially more exotic character with tropical undercurrents shining through the more typical citric overtones. Yum!

2020 Cotes de Gascogne Rosé "Brume" (Laballe, Domaine)

Domaine Laballe, Cotes de Gascogne Rosé "Brume", Gascony, France 2020

60% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot

CHERRY & CURRANT, ZESTY & FRESH, HAS A CRISP

From the gentle hills of Gascony, this rosé incorporates the varieties that dominate much of the region’s red wine production – those most closely associated with Bordeaux to the north: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Filled with flavors of fresh red berries and an unexpected undercurrent that manages to to be reminiscent of Fig Newton, it finds a balance between refreshing and rich. Gascony’s famously patio-friendly whites have some pretty & pink competition in this rosé compatriot.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheese, charcuterie, & fresh figs. An halibut.

2019 Cotes de Gascogne Rouge "Les Terres Basses" (Laballe, Domaine)

Domaine Laballe, Cotes de Gascogne Rouge "Terres Basses", Gascony, France 2019

50% Merlot, 25% Tannat, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

BLACK PLUM & CURRANT, EARTHY CLAY & BLACK TEA LEAVES

Gascony and gastronomy, appropriately, share six letters in common. This southwestern corner of France is home to decadent cheeses, patés, game, and legendary brandy. Its viticulture provides us with outlandishly refreshing whites, or “patio wines” as well as brutish, tannic reds made from Tannat. This Blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv, and the aforementioned Tannat, however, is medium bodied and gentle with ample earthy complexities and food-friendly brightness. A delight!

Serving Suggestion: A great choice for heavy cheese &/or charcuterie spreads and snacks. Black bean/sweet potato/kale empanadas.

{organic} Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon

PALE, FRESH, QUAFFABLE. PERFUMY SANDALWOOD & CITRUS

Served cold, this goes down easily (and very quickly) just as it would in the land where it’s made.

Delicious grilled meats, salads, and fresh, cold rosé on ice. Laughing about life, talking with your hands and tossing back the wine to quench your thirst. Life is extra slow and sweet at this moment. This is that wine.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled veggies, sausages, salads and friends around a table under a tree while laughing and speaking with your hands.

2020 Cotes de Provence Rosé - Sainte Victoire (Pinchinat, Domaine)

Domaine Pinchinat, Cotes de Provence Rosé "St. Victoire", Provence, France 2020

{organic} Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon

RIPE RASPBERRY & FLORAL SPICE, FULL & FLESHY YET FRESH & FIRM

The Saint-Victoire sub-appellation of the Cotes de Provence wasn’t demarcated until 2005, but it should come as no surprise that any area within this, what is effectively the world capital of rosé production, which manages to rise head and shoulders above its surroundings is truly special. Nestled against the slopes of of the imposing Mount Saint Victoire, these vineyards have the ability to imbue grapes with a show stopping combination of acidity and ripe, powerful fruit. Domaine Pinchinat has long been responsible for some of our most popular offerings, and this outstanding cuvée represents an exceptional treat.

Serving Suggestion: Duck carpaccio w/ fennel polen & lavender. Thin, crisp-crusted pizza w/ ricotta, basil, & halved grape-tomatoes.

Domaine Pinchinat, Cotes de Provence Blanc, Provence, France 2020

{organic} Rolle, Clairette

POLLEN, PEAR, WHITE FLOWERS & MIXED HERBS

Pinchinat is great for so many reasons. For one, the combination of Rolle (called Vermentino in Italy) and Clairette is a perfect match, made in heaven. Secondly, the combination of historic vineyards, clean, simple winemaking, and value pricing is nearly unheard of. The wines are authentic, soulful, and you can toss ‘em back like ice water on a hot day. From this small, contiguous vineyard, beautiful things are made.

Serving Suggestion: Wood-fired pizza with clams and fresh garlic on top, lightly sprinkled with red pepper flakes. Grilled veggie kabobs kissed with Green Goddess dressing.

{organic} 90% Syrah, 10% Grenache

DRIED BLUEBERRIES, SUBTLE LAVENDER, PRETTY & FIRM

Alain de Welle is a nice, peaceful man. As the owner and manager of Pinchinat, it’s his vision that is expressed in each glass of his wine that is served these days. Although his family has farmed this vineyard for over two centuries (and the land farmed back to pre-history), his father broke from tradition and raised him in the nearby city of Aix. Alain returned to his family’s roots, (pun intended) and makes honest, modest wines that speak truths without trying to “blow you away."

Serving Suggestions: Marinated lamb kabobs; Charcoal-grilled ribeye with rosemary smoke & sea salt.

{biodynamic} 33.3% Grenache, 33.3% Syrah, 33.3% Counoise

MINERALLY, TART RASPBERRY, WHITE PEPPER & FLINTY WISPS

Vibrant salmon in color and vibrantly crisp on the palate, this latest offering from the sisters Thibon is a beauty to behold and a refreshing pleasure to sip. Taking its title from the childhood nickname of Jean-Pierre Thibon, Libian's patriarch and father to the sisters who currently manage the estate, the "BuveZ'en" rosé is a wine with an identity as chiseled as the estate's other gorgeous wines with which we've fallen increasingly in love over the past several years. Vive Le Libian! Vive le rosé!

Serving Suggestion: Sweet, spicy shrimp cocktail w/ celery, jalapeño, & cilantro. Deep fried corn on the cob w/ Szeschuan-esque peppercorn flair!

2018 Cotes du Rhone Rouge (Pères de l'Eglise, Domaine des)

Domaine des Pères de l'Eglise, Cotes du Rhone Rouge, Rhone Valley, France 2017

Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah

RED RASPBERRY & KIRSCH, BAZAAR-ISH POTPOURRI, ROSEMARY

The last few years have yielded a bounty of truly stunning Cotes du Rhones that seem to come closer to reaching the regal heights of their more impressively-pedigreed brethren from AOCs like Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape. This beautiful gem does indeed come from entirely within the bounds of the Chateauneuf AOC yet opts to declassify itself down to the sprawling and much more variable (in terms of quality) Cotes du Rhone AOC. The resemblance, however, is striking! Clocking in at a percentage point lower in alcohol content, it’s not quite as big as its big brothers, but the gorgeously exotic perfumes that we giddily associate with the output of the outstanding Peres de l’Eglise estate loudly affirm their presence during roll call.

Serving Suggestion: Roast turkey drumsticks w/ turmeric, cumin, paprika, & rosemary w/ corn oil-fried sweet potato wedges. Black bean soup w/ cayenne, cumin, garlic, & diced tomatoes over polenta.

[biodynamic] 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah

RASPBERRY & DRIED CRANBERRY, SWEET ROSEMARY, EARTH & DARK CHOCOLATE

"Drink wine. This is life eternal," famously wrote the ever beauty-seeking Omar Khayyam, and 800 years later, his attitudes and observations resound with timelessness. The Thibon sisters of Mas de Libian have named this delicious cuvée after the 12th century Persian poet and philosopher, and its exotic perfume of rosemary, lavender, and cocoa combine with violet-fruited romance in a sublimely exotic testament to his writings. This wine is hedonistic and nurturing, so heed the advice of Khayyam and take "the daughter of the vine to spouse".

Serving Suggestion: Lamb medallions simmered with sliced dates, saffron, and cumin. Okra, potatoes, and eggplant stewed with caramelized onions, tomato paste, black pepper, and a squeeze of lime juice (served over rice).

{biodynamic} 90% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache

BRIGHT BLACKBERRY, MINERALLY EARTH, VIOLETS & MEDITERRANEAN SPICE

A cuvée made precious as much by its exoticism as its rarity, "La Calade" takes its name from the prized stoney soil of one of the finest growing sites in the Southern Rhone. Showcasing a decidedly elegant side of the monstrous Mourvedre grape, this wine resonates with dense purple energy, enchanted wildness, and the mysterious potpourri of Mediterranean France. The Thibon sisters of Mas de Libian never fail to produce highly memorable wines with unique personalities.

Serving Suggestion: Mmmm, Mourvedre and lamb are such extraordinary bedfellows that we really need look no further for a fantastic pairing. Look to North Africa for inspiration incorporating saffron, cumin, & cinnamon accompanied by couscous.

2018 Cotes du Rhone Villages (Sainte-Anne, Domaine)

Domaine Saint-Anne, Cotes du Rhone Villages, Southern Rhone, France 2017

70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

CURRANT & PLUM, WHITE PEPPER & MINERALLY EARTH, RED RASPBERRY PRESERVES

One of the fabulous yet relatively lesser-known corners of the Cotes-du-Rhone Villages occupying the “Right Bank,” Saint-Gervais lies northwest of Tavel and Lirac, at roughly the same latitude as Gigondas on the river’s opposite side. Domaine Saint-Anne’s Guy Steinmaier’s parents immigrated to Burgundy from Austria in the early 1930s, and he set up shop in this corner of the Rhone around 1960. This cuvée, in contrast to the estate’s more iconoclastic offerings, stars the traditional Grenache with a bit of Syrah and Cinsault providing additional interest. Concentrated red fruit, spice, and elegant earthy notes are firmly imbedded within this large, lively Mediterranean treat.

Serving Suggestion: Spicy, buttery, Ethiopian stewed beef. Black bean curry w/ diced bell peppers, tomato purée, coconut, & cumin.

BLACK RASPBERRY & CASSIS, SPICE & WHITE PEPPER, SWEET EARTH

Like the best producers of the southern Rhone Valley, Chateau de Marjolet crafts wines which are deft performers of a balancing act, finding that middle ground between power and finesse. This red from the village of Laudun brings a restrained clarity of dark fruit together with hedonistic pepper, spice, and a satisfying earthy richness which is exotic, elegant, and unmistakably Mediterranean. The Pontaud family, champions of terroir-driven wines and environmentally sound viticulture, have here brought to life the perfect Chateauneuf-du-Pape understudy.

DENSE BLACK RASPBERRY & KIRSCH, GARRIGUES

Hailing from this stretch of Mediterranean France closest to the Spanish birthplace of Garnacha, this opaquely obsidian offering showcases the variety . Força Réal, a Roussillon producer which takes its name from an imposing mount that towers high above the rugged countryside, crafts beautiful wines, and this one exists somewhat between worlds, recalling both Rhone-ish, Languedoc-ian, French fare and the specialties of Spain’s Catalonia like Priorat and Montsant.

60% Cinsault, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah

STRAWBERRY & RED RASPBERRY, ROBUST & REFRESHING

Laudun is, perhaps, a lesser-known corner of the Southern Rhône’s right bank, but its proximity to Chateauneuf-du-Pape (on the river’s opposite bank) and, more relevantly, Tavel to its south is telling, and the quality offered by its stony terroir is exceptional. This robust rosé isn’t quite as dense (or dark) as those of the aforementioned Tavel, but its enthusiastic ripeness is reminiscent, and its Cinsault-dominated composition imbues it with wonderful brightness, lively acidity, and impeccable balance.

Serving Suggestions: Oven-roasted Spanish mackerel w/ dill, coriander, & tabouleh w/ briny olives & grape tomatoes. Fresh figs & creamy goat’s milk cheeses (perhaps w/ lavender & fennel).

Cairanne is one of the brightest points in the Southern Rhone and, despite its increasingly lofty reputation, somehow continues to remain a source for some of the valley's best values. Forged predominantly from 100 year old Grenache vines and Syrah planted more than half a century ago, this offering from Patrice Jubian makes a superb ambassador for this corner of Mediterranean France, layering the concentrated black and purple fruit associated with these varietals and the coveted garrigue-ish aromatics of the "méridional" countryside.

Just wrap your head around the fact that estate dates to the mid 13th century! Now belonging to the Cotes du Roussion Villages AOP, the soils are schist-based and retain heat so at night when the air cools, the ground reflects heat up to the vines continuing their ripening as evening temperatures plummet in this arid area. These additional hours of warmth boost the potent Mediterranean ripeness while the cool nights make for beautifully balancing acidity!

Of the impressive, non-Champagne areas that produce French sparkling wine under the name, “Crémant,” Alsace is perhaps the very most exciting. Arnaud Baur’s affinity for bubbly offerings has remained consistently and particularly impressive for us, and while this refreshing rosé may not quite rival its white counterparts in yeasty, Champagne-ish maturity, it more than rises to the occasion, stepping sideways and finding a fresher, more fruit-forward voice while remaining chiseled, very dry, and with traces of biscuity richness. Beautiful!

The cooler, more northerly regions of France have no shortage of vibrant, elegant sparkling wine to contribute. Joining Champagne are Alsace, Jura, Burgundy, and perhaps most famously, the Middle Loire Valley. Here, Chenin is served well by its tendency toward mouthwatering acidity, mineralistic complexity, and refreshing flavors that manage to layer lemon and tart apple flavors with undercurrents of honey and tropical fruit. This one knows precisely the essential balance to strike between razory, lean restraint and decadent richness of flavor – a tantalizing, seductive dance on the palate.

WILD BERRY, PLUM GIVING WAY TO PRUNE, HEADY HERBS

This is a delicious Dolcetto, albeit a richer and more full-bodied example than typically found. It’s vivacious and approachable, but with depth, length, and maturity thanks to fruit ripened on 70-90 year old vines. In fact, the name "Brichet" derives from bricco, referencing the most advantageously sunny part of a hillside vineyard. Brimming with fresh red and black fruit tempered with herbal notes, it’s a blend of backyard garden and wilderness.

2017 Douro "Andreza" (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto Reserva "Andreza", Douro, Portugal 2017

40% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinto Roriz

FIRM PLUM & DRIED MISSION FIG, WISPS OF CEDAR & VANILLA

Representing a somewhat more modernist slant on the classically dark and elegantly rugged unfortified reds of the Douro valley, Lua Cheia's "Andreza" is named for a particularly stunning bend among the region's otherworldly (and very steep) vineyard-scape. The typical purple-black fruit and mouthfilling majesty are still very much in play, but the stern structure and dusty earthen tones which often populate these wines have been resculpted into something a bit more creamy and cosmopolitan. A delicious twist!

Serving Suggestion: Red-wine marinated roast pork loin w/ garlic, shallots, & white beans. Tender Moroccan stewed goat w/eggplant puree & lemony boiled potato salad.

2019 Douro Tinto (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto, Douro, Portugal 2019

Touriga Franca & Many More

BLACK PLUM & BERRIES. BOLD, RIPE, & DARK. FULL-BODIED

Often as vines grow older, their production of grapes diminishes to the point that growers will rip them out and replant younger, more vigorous ones. The problem is that younger vines rarely produce wines with as much richness and character as the older, more established ones do. This field blend of Touriga Franca and up to twenty two other traditional Douro varieties comes from a vineyard composed entirely of these old and very special vines which haven't been sacrificed in the name of higher yields. Try a bottle and taste the wisdom that comes with age!

Serving Suggestions: Veal shank in a stew of red wine, onions, carrots, potatoes and a fistful of thyme, rosemary and parsley.

2019 Dry Riesling (Konstantin Frank, Dr.)

Dr. Konstantin Frank, Dry Riesling, Finger Lakes, NY 2019

{organic} 100% Riesling

ZESTY LEMON, BRIGHT BLOSSOMS, SLATEY & CLEAN

The name Konstantin Frank is law in the Finger Lakes region, and his eponymous winery is still the apotheosis of quality vinifera on the east coast. This is a classic old-world-style dry riesling bursting with bright citrus (and citrus peel) flavors and bouyant blossomy aromas. But it's the squeaky clean finish that is truly the star here, a thread of acidity and minerality that elevates the wine from "refreshing" to "ethereal."

Serving Suggestion: Whole grilled trout with lemon and sea salt, alongside buttered sourdough and a medley of summer greens.

The young Olivier Cailleux represents the sixth generation of his family to sustainably till the clay and limestone soils here – soils much like those of Sancerre.

The finish lasts for minutes...

{organic} 100% Falanghina

AROMATIC BASIL & PEACH, EXPANSIVE YET BRIGHT

Libero Rillo and his father, Orazio, work their hillside vineyards of Benevento, in the volcanic soils for which southern Italy's Campania is renowned. This soil is most famous for yielding dense, powerful reds. Gaining ground in international acclaim, however, are the classically voluptuous yet balanced whites made from the region's indigenous grapes. Falanghina is perhaps the most distinctive of these and can hold on to its acidity while expressing rich tropical fruit. Falanghina? Bellissima!

Serving Suggestion:

Neapolitan pizza! Especially the traditional Margherita or ones topped with anchovies, garlic cloves and chili flakes.

HONEYSUCKLE, TART GREEN APPLES, TOASTED WALNUTS

Giorgio Alpiste names his wines after the parcel of land on which the grapes are grown. In the case of "Quattro 20 (Venti)" (or "four winds”), his Favorita vines flourish on the sandy, south-facing slopes of his family's farm in the Piemonte, where refracted sunlight from the Ligurian Sea accentuates the grape's natural minerality and slightly sharp acidic finish. This makes it a fantastic wine to pair with rich cheeses and buttery pasta dishes.

Serving Suggestions: Tajarin (hearty egg yolk pasta) w/ butter, sage, & white truffles. Baked trout w/ lemon butter & tarragon. Falafel.

BRIGHT RED, LOADS OF CHERRY FRUIT, BALANCED ALCOHOL, FRESH

Kopke is the oldest port wine company in Portugal, dating back to 1638 when two German pioneers settled in Duoro to make wine. The current cellars are over seventy years old and in 1999 the winemaking facility was completely modernized. They have one of the deepest and broadest port wine libraries in the world for old vintages with 370 years of port wine production. While their focus is on tawny ports, this Ruby port is a delicious daily style of bright bouncy ruby red nectar. It’s fresh and ready to drink, does not require aging and shows true port character with out being overly sweet.

Serving Suggestion: Try this with strong flavored cheese like our Hook’s creamy blue, or with poached pears, dried figs and walnuts as part of a dessert.

Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Mourisco

CANDIED GINGER, TOASTY CARAMEL, STAR ANISE, NOT OVERLY SWEET

Jann Hinrich Andresen lived an unusual life. In 1840, at the age of 14, he sailed to Porto from the island of Föhr off the coast of the Netherlands. Five years later, at the unbelievable age of 19, he founded the port house that still carries his name. Almost 200 years later, Andresen is one of the few 100% family-owned port houses, and has become internationally known for its high quality products. Their Fine Tawny offers a perfume of raspberry preserves and warm baking spices. Caramel, hazelnut, and sweet tobacco leaf come out to play on the palate. A perfect port to convert the non-port drinker, and an incredible value.

Serving Suggestion: Gingerbread cake baked with chai spices, topped with cream cheese frosting and chunks of tooth-tender toffee.

Bodegas Cesar Florido, Fino Sherry "Chipiona” [375ml], Jerez, Spain NV

{organic} 100% Palomino

REFRESHING YET RICH...OCEANIC, ALMONDY PERFUME!

Brimming with an almond-like waxiness, savory mystique, and a powerful suggestion of salinity (without any actual saltiness, obviously), this is a wine that you may find yourself wanting to eat as much as drink. It’s perplexing, perhaps, that it can manage to be as clean as refreshing it is. This is the coveted conundrum of Fino! Completely dry and clocking it at a relatively gentle 15% alcohol, this isn’t as much an acquired taste as it is a friend you’ve always known you’ve had but haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting.

Serving Suggestion: Marcona almonds are practically its soulmate. Seafood spreads (even our Carolinian Calabash stylings) are a dream.

Fruit forward and lightly off-dry, this is a fun sipper (or guzzler) for the whole family (if the whole family is over 21 of course)! Zweigelt is a particularly apt and enthusiastic candidate for pink vinification, and this fizzy version bursts with tangy red fruit and a whisper of tropicality.

This is Diane & Philippe Cauvin's pure Negrette grape cuvee from a single parcel of vineyard with iron rich soils of pebbles, gravel and sand. The distinctive soil gives the wine a softer but more intense flavor of the Negrette grape, almost heightening its characteristics. This is the most pure expression of wine from Fronton, a standard by which others are measured!

Serving Suggestions: Cassoulet, the bean, pork, duck and sausage casserole of southwest France is a classic pairing, since they originate in the same region.

Philippe and Diane Cauvin are champions of the heat-loving Negrette grape, which is grown almost exclusively in their little corner of France's Sud-Ouest, and they use fully biodynamic farming methods despite the area’s fickle climate. The deep black but thin-skinned Negrette stars in this lovely Rosé. It goes beyond your average sunny day quaffer.

BLACK RASPBERRY & DRIED MISSION FIG, VIOLETS & CARAMEL

This expansive yet energetic Grenache (Garnacha, of course, in its naive Spain) is one of the most powerful reds we’ve carried in BIB (Bag-In-Box format aka “box wine" or "boxed wine”). Bodegas Tempore is passionately organic, and we’ve been swooning over their fantastic values since we met them in the late aughts. Stylistically, this is Rhone-meets-Rioja with powerful ripe fruit, spice, and caramelized/vanilla richness. Pump it up!

GLEAMING VIOLET-BLACK FRUIT, ZESTY TANNIN, BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED

Hailing from a most Mediterranean outcropping of southeastern Spain’s Alicante, this blend of Garnacha and Monastrell represents an almost surprisingly lithe outing from a region often pigeonholed for rusticity and overripeness. Felipe & Pilar Gutiérrez have crafted wine in this coastal Levant enclave for almost half a century, employing labor-intensive working methods that blur the lines between forward-thinking and what one wishes were timeless common sense, always in pursuit of quality and deftly finding their mark.

Taking its title from Akarregi Txiki’s patriarch, this cuvée features extended aging on the lees, imparting additional richness and intensity while allowing the wine to retain that razor-sharp Txakoli personality. Herbaceous, oceanic, and slightly less effervescent, it’s distinctive in its combination of chalky minerality, light grassiness, and briny capsicum or caper. This is one to enjoy while staring out over the dunes at the beach – with or without a plate of mussels. Topa!

This impeccably balanced Gewürz comes to us from some of the variety’s oldest vines in Oregon (~45 years, in fact!) and features one of the most balanced combinations of lusciousness and liveliness that we’ve had the pleasure of sinking our teeth into lately. Bone dry and boasting terrific acidity, this is a spicy, food-friendly dream (yet one that’s just as apt as a cocktail hour delight).

Godello is the undisputed monarch of whites from the more inland reaches of Spain’s Galicia and plays an important role in northern Portugal as well. This outing from our friend and hero of unusually economical Galician offerings, Manuel Mendez, aptly showcases the variety’s propensity toward a minerally, medium-weight, vaguely Burgundian persona. In fact, fans of unoaked Chardonnay will really sink their teeth into this. As intriguing as the unspoiled hills of Galicia!

RIPE NECTARINE & TROPICAL FRUIT, ZESTY WHITE PEPPER, GENTLE TOAST

Full-bodied yet balancing its rich ripeness with healthy acidity, this impressive Eastern Languedoc offering carries itself like what would often be a more expensive Southern Rhone white. Time in oak barrels (utilized after a couple years’ service in Burgundy’s Beaune) has imbued a light toastiness that doesn’t detract from the extroverted tropicality or freshness and adds an extra dimension of luxury.

Serving Suggestion: Triggerfish w/ avocado oil & aioli w/ onion rings. Savory, twice-fried plantains & cabbage salad w/ cilantro & orange-glazed carrot ribbons.

Grignolino (Saccoletto, Azienda Agricola Vitivinicola Daniele)

Azienda Agricola Daniele Saccoletto, Grignolino, Piemonte, Italy

{organic} 100% Grignolino

EARTHY RED FRUIT, WALNUT & SPICY BALSAMICO, FUNKY

Welcome to Daniele Saccoletto's world, where the DOC (Italian wine authorities, but not cool like us) doesn't matter. Extremely long fermentation times with natural yeast, followed by years of aging, result in some awesome, unique expressions of familiar Piemontese varieties. His Grignolino is brickish and tawny (a sure sign of a red wine with some years to it), with natural funk, red fruit and suggestions of earthy olive, balsamico, and herbaceous spice. Firm tannins are balanced by spritzy acidity, making this a wine for the adventurous.

Serving Suggestions: Pizza w/ olive oil, garlic, roasted red peppers and finocchiona salami. Porcini mushroom and rosemary risotto topped w/ sliced ribeye steak, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and chopped chives.

2020 Grolleau Gris "Collection Plaisir" (Herbauges, Domaine des)

Domaine des Herbauges, Grolleau Gris, Loire Valley, France 2020

{organic} 100% Grolleau Gris

PEACH BLOSSOM & STRAWBERRY, TONGUE-TINGLING, ZESTY MINERAL

Grolleau Gris is the lighter skinned, pink-ish variant of a once-ubiquitous Loire grape responsible for an ocean's worth of crisp rosés and light-bodied reds. We don’t encounter Grolleau-based wines as much as we once did, and Grolleau Gris is an outright rarity! Thankfully, this rendition from Jérome Choblet, while made in very limited quantities, makes up for all the years that we didn’t know we were missing the variety. Hailing from the Atlantic reaches of the Loire’s Muscadet country, this not-quite-effervescent white tingles with mouthwatering acidity, summery fruit, and that spirit of adventure that can only come from drinking wine made from exotic grapes. Cheers!

Serving Suggestion: Maki sushi w/ snapper, salmon, pickled plum, & cucumber. Vegetarian bibimbap (and other lighter, medium-spicy Korean dishes).

100% Grüner Veltliner

WHITE FLOWERS, CITRUS & GREEN APPLE, MINERALLY & DRY

Fourth generation winemaker, Anton Bauer has a reputation for making traditional-style wines in the hills of Wagram in Austria. Now making waves as the young winemaker who "makes no wines that are less than outstanding," his Gmörk Vineyard Grüner Veltliner is a classic example of the Wagram style, showing ripe green apple, great acidity, citrus notes. The distinctive aroma of white flowers pervades the nose.

Serving Suggestions: Great with a broad variety of vegetarian dishes. Fleshy fish fare. Anton himself recommends it with Southern fried chicken, and we concur!

{sustainable} 100% Gruner Veltliner

VIBRANT CITRUS & PEACH,  WHITE PEPPER & MINERAL, GRÜNER GOLD

Hailing from the precariously steep inclines of the Wachau’s vineyards, the always-excellent T26 cuvée takes its name from an eventful tasting session with Austrian importer, Klaus Wittauer, who was in the Mittelbach family cellar at their Tegernseerhof winery, searching for his absolute favorite among the estate’s tanks of recently vinified less-expensive Grüner.  When he found the one, he exclaimed, "This is it!  I'll take the whole tank." That tank was #26, and “T26" has sense served as the nickname for the estate’s greatest value outing in Grüner Veltliner each year. Classic stone-fruit and zesty citrus carry notes of the variety’s hallmark white pepper and flint. Prost!

Serving Suggestion: Juicy fried or oven-roasted chicken w/ crisp skin. Wiener Schnitzel or other breaded, fried cutlets. Mild, flavorful cheeses.

ZESTY! LITHE CITRUS & PEACH, WHITE PEPPER & GOOSEBERRY

Northeastern Austria’s Weinviertel (translating to “wine quarter”) is the Central European nation’s largest area of wine production, in fact accounting for half of all acreage planted to Grüner Veltliner. This offering from Martin Minkowitsch (representing the 15th generation of the estate) is classic for the massive, Slovakia & Czech-bordering DAC, brimming with restrained citrus & stone fruit, an almost arugula-like pepperiness, and unexpected gooseberry undercurrents that may gently recall Sauvignon Blanc.

Serving Suggestion: Open-faced sandwich of smoked salmon & Emmental on rye w/ quail egg, parsley, & alfalfa sprouts. Cucumber salad w/ dill, white wine vinegar, olive oil, & black pepper.

FRESH APPLE, CREAMY MELON, SPRITZY PEPPERCORN

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before us looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintage was brilliant. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name. Under the tutelage of Anton Bauer, Paul gives us a bright, fresh Grüner Veltliner in a dry floral style that has crisp acidity and pure drinkability.

Serving Suggestion: Perfect for beach blankets and summer hangouts. Picnic foods like chicken salad, tuna salad, and egg salad sandwiches.

Best known for its elegant, powerful sparkling wines which can rival Champagne, Weingut Steininger consistently produces profound wines with exemplary purity and focus.

ASIAN PEAR & WHITE PEACH, FANTASTIC FLINT, MAGNOLIA

"Radiant! With lots of flavor, strength, and passion. Loves autumn and good food." This suave rendition of Austria’s graceful Grüner grape from Kamptal maestro, Cristophe Edelbauer, does a splendid job of both channeling distinctly Veltliner-riffic varietal character and coaxing out its rounder, more Burgundian-esque possibilities with plentiful tree fruit and an interestingly herbal element reminiscent of parsley and sage. Resoundingly opulent, its appeal perhaps owes more to richness and roundness than to refreshment or raciness. Indulge! Indulge!

Serving Suggestion: Grilled pike or salmon w/ a savory sage-butter sauce & asparagus. Roast cornish hen w/ green peppercorns, parsley & broccolini w/ a squeeze of lemon.

KEY LIME & CRISP GOLDEN PLUM, PIERCING MINERALITY

The Bergdistel vineyard site exists at lower reaches of the imposingly steep sloping Loibenberg and Weissenkirchen vineyards. It happens to be the source of one of the most tremendous values in the esteemed Wachau phenomenon known as “Smaragd” - a celebration of ripeness, power, impeccable balance, and finesse named for the region's beautiful emerald green lizards. 2019 was an impressively warm vintage, resulting in an even more muscular rendition of this already intense cuvée. Brimming with intense stone fruit, citrus, and peppery mineral, this colorful gem is sure to satisfy our pinings for both power and elegance.

Serving Suggestion: Tea-smoked duck & kung pao lotus root. Crispy fried potato pancakes w/ cashew-lemon sour cream.

GOLDEN STONE FRUIT & KOREAN PEAR, FULL-BODIED, RACY & DRY

The coveted title of pedigree, “Smaragd,” is inspired by the emerald pigmentation of the strikingly beautiful lacertid lizards which can be spotted basking on stones throughout the steep vineyards of the Wachau. This legal distinction is reserved for wines made from the ripest, richest grapes in this revered region. Martin Mittelbach’s Höhereck vineyard, itself, is barely an acre in size and was laid out carefully by his family in the 1960s. Its 60 year Grüner vines yield liquid gold...

Lambrusco Rosato "Labrusca Lini 910" (Lini Oreste & Figli)

LINI, Lambrusco Rosato "Labrusca Lini 910", Emilia Romagna, Italy (2009)

Lambrusco Salamino, Ancellotta

DRY, LIGHT BERRY, HINT OF TANNIN, EFFERVESCENT

"Labrusca" is the Etruscan name for Lambrusco coming from the Latin labrum, meaning "edge." It is believed that Lambrusco grapes grew naturally along the edges of fields cultivated by the Etruscans food crops. Lini was established in 1910 and today is quite possibly the finest Lambrusco in all of Emilia Romagna. Fabio Lini and his daughter Alicia are responsible for this delicious dry, pink version of Lambrusco. Tart and thirst quenching with light tannin from the grape skins, this gentle pink wine has a firm backbone, perfect with picnic food.

Serving Suggestion: Chilled lightly, this dry rosato is picnic wine for everything from chicken salad, tuna salad, humus and veggies, chips and dip. At the dinner table, try a prosciutto and fresh mozzarella cheese pizza.

This youthful take on the famously ageworthy (and reputedly age-demanding) Nebbiolo grape trades in the expected tannic heft for crisp companionship for charcuterie and creamy cheeses; this red is absolutely built for it. While not light and, in fact, clocking in at 14% alcohol, its mouthwatering acidity make it a great candidate for serving with a bit of a chill. Carefully selecting grapes from a few different plots, Ca del Baio has deftly crafted a wine that’s intended for easy drinking.

The vineyards of Lirac would be almost contiguous with those of Chateauneuf du Pape were they not separated by the Rhone River itself. Long in the shadows of this famous neighbor on the opposite bank as well as the regal, robust rosé flowing from Tavel to the south, Lirac has never been allowed to be one of the Southern Rhone’s most visible stars. That doesn’t stop it from producing wines that  rival (and often, in terms of value, outshine) those of its more famous surroundings. This offering from the Borrelly family estate bursts onto the scene with bold, blackish-purple fruit, exotic perfume, and a sumptuously toasted oak undercurrent. Magnificently Mediterranean!

Serving Suggestion: Roast duck w/ cranberry-balsamic sauce & rosemary. Savory black bean & sweet potato enchilada w/ tempeh & chipotle.

2019 Lisboa Branco (Sant'Ana, Quinta de)

{organic}

83% Fernão Pires, 17% Verdelho

CRISP WHITE PEACH, ORANGE BLOSSOM & FLINT, PRISTINE & WHOLESOME

Fernão Pires (intermittently better known as Maria Gomes) is the most planted white grape in Portugal for good reason. It’s one of the few grapes with a reputation for being able to balance generous yields and generous flavor. When the yields are low, however, the flavors become even more interesting. Sant’Ana’s tiny ten hectare estate not only provides us with low yield Fernão Pires (blended with a little Verdelho, for extra energy), it does so in a cool climate conducive to subtlety and acidity. The result is very refreshing, ripe but modest in alcohol, impeccably clean, interesting, and very easy to drink. Super-summery all year long!

RUBY RED WITH BRIGHT FRUIT FLAVORS AND SWEET BAKING SPICES

Sourcing from the small 7 hectare vineyard of Quinta da Madalena, all the grapes are still hand harvested and foot tread. In general their ports are a bit less sweet than most. The Lodge Reserve is a blend of reserve wines aged in barrels to mellow their flavor, but not too long to maintain the fresh fruit flavors of a ruby port. This is medium to full-bodied with a warm fruitiness in the center and sweet spices. It’s very rich and a great port value.

Eschewing the ultra-concentrated and monstrously fruity style of many contemporary Argentine Malbecs, they've focused on the balance which is possible between elegance and power. A delicate smoky finesse derived from aging in large French oak barrels supplements and supports the varietal's trademark flavors of black fruit and chocolate. The Pulenta family, descendants of Italian immigrants, represent three generations of viticulture in Argentina.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled flank steak with a cilantro and parsley chimichurri. Potato empanada with ground beef, cilantro, and garlic.

2019 Malbec Reserve (Sophenia, Finca)

Finca Sophenia, Reserve Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina 2019

100% Malbec

PLUM, LINGONBERRY, SMOKY OAK & SPICES

This mid-sized winery keeps coming through with the good stuff. We're often wary of carrying too many wines from one winery, but Sophenia continues to astound us while most other wineries cannot compete at the same price. This Malbec is lovely and modern, with noticeable oak aging, but perfectly balanced and showing great subtlety for its price. A real crowd pleaser!

Serving Suggestions: Steak man! That's what they do in Argentina. Steak, steak, steak! With a side of steak.

2017 Merlot "Diamond Dust Vineyard" (Trig Point)

Trig Point, Merlot "Diamond Dust Vineyard", Alexander Valley, California 2017

{organic} 100% Merlot

CONCENTRATED DARK FRUIT, HAZELNUT & MOCHA, SERIOUS YET SUPPLE

New Zealand native Nick Goldschmidt has been ingrained in viticulture and winemaking for 35 years. Having relocated to California in 1989, his tenure as a flying winemaker, consultant, and sought-after gun-for-hire became the stuff of legend. He gradually left these occupations behind as his clients were increasingly purchased by wine conglomerates. In 2008, he and his wife, Yolyn, established Trig Point, acquiring vineyards that Nick had worked with since 1993. The Merlot features locally originating clonal selections, and emerges as a supple powerhouse whose appeal should be very compatible with the tastes of muscular Napa Cab lovers. Vive le Merlot!

RASPBERRY & WHITE PLUM, BREEZY SPARKLE, A TOUCH OF GRAPEFRUIT

Philipe and Diane Cauvin have essentially bridled the finicky Négrette grape into graceful submission with their catalogue of wines that seem to improve with each passing vintage. This is their newest offering, a delectably refreshing "petnat" sparkling rosé with pretty mousse that evaporates gracefully on the palate. A touch of ruby red grapefruit aroma adds serious depth. Great stuff. (slight sediment from the natural fermentation in bottle is harmless)

Alta Langa is known as “The Champagne from Langhe” for good reason: it was the first sparkling wine made in Italy, as early as the 1850’s, copying the French classic method used to produce Champagne, and in everything but the name (and price!) is quintessentially Champenoise. An enthusiastic plume of bubbles and aromas of crusty bread lead into flavors of citrus and orchard fruits, finishing with a delicate savoriness and palate-cleansing acidity.

BLACK CHERRY, IRON & FOREST BARK, SANDALWOOD & VIOLET

No, that's not the vintage! This old-vine cuvée “1771" from Casa Los Frailes is a palate-pleasing palindrome which takes its name from the year that the estate’s Valásquez family assumed control during the Enlightenment of what had formerly been the vineyards and monastery of local friars prior to the Inquisition. Southeastern Spain is the origin of the magnificent Monastrell grape (aka Mourvèdre), and this pure version brims with the brooding power that the variety is famous for while projecting its potential elegance with velvety, mature tannin, supple fruit, and soft oak that evokes wisps of exotic sandalwood.

Caliza is Spanish for limestone, and it’s the soil in which the old vines for this very special wine are planted.

Nero d'Avola is one of those grapes that has such interesting and dynamic flavors that it's hard not to love. It is a flavor that has become associated with Southern Italian cuisine since it is grown not only in Sicily, but throughout the lower "boot" of Italy. Often rustic, earthy and raisiny, the subtle charm can be crushed by the heat, which will turn the sugary grapes into harsh wines. At COS, the grapes are harvested before getting too ripe and cautiously crafted into pretty wine in a cold, clean cellar. The result is one of Sicily's gifts to the world. Don't miss it.

Serving Suggestions: Perfection with charcoal-grilled lamb heavily crusted with rosemary, garlic and lemon. Firm, aged pecorino cheeses with capers on the side drizzled with olive oil.

2019 Nero d'Avola "Tenuta Ibidini" (Valle dell'Acate)

Valle dell'Acate "Tenuta Ibidini", Nero d'Avola, Sicilia, Italy 2019

100% Nero d'Avola

ASH, BLACKBERRY, RASPBERRY, EASY, FRIENDLY TANNIN

Tenuta Ibidini (pronounced ‘bidini) takes its name from the ancient root word Bidis, the name for the early Hellenic settlers in the area. Tradition has it that Nero d'Avola was brought to Sicily by the Greeks, though it is also known as "Calabrese," suggesting it may have come from the region of Calabria. Regardless of its origins, it is the most planted variety on the island and produces deeply colored wines ranging in style from youthful and juicy to rich and complex. This version offers tremendous bang for the buck with its dark fruit and oh so drinkable and friendly tannins.

Serving Suggestion: Friendly enough for roasted meaty fish like cod with a meat stock reduction sauce; venison grilled with juniper berries.

Georg Albrecht Schneider, Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Spätlese, Rheinhessen, Germany 2016

100% Riesling

ZESTY LIME & PINEAPPLE, MAGNIFICENT MINERALITY

Whatever the time of year, when we taste the zesty combination of bright citrus and restrained tropicality – the graceful contrast of mouthwatering acidity and gentle sweetness that punctuates the profile of classic Rheinhessen Spätlese, we immediately want to hit the slopes… The famously red slope of Nierstein, to be precise. Like a wintery piña colada that hasn't had any irritating songs written about it, this perennially refreshing white could bring a kiss of healthy chill to a summer evening or pair spectacularly with traditional Thanksgiving/holiday fare.

Serving Suggestion: Pineapple-baked ham w/ crisp, steamed string beans. Papaya salad w/ fish sauce & coconut rice.

GUTSY NUTTY GUSTO! HAZELNUTS & BRAZILNUTS, BONE-DRY AMARETTO AWESOMENESS

This decadent gem gleams like a coffee-colored precious stone. Painstakingly compiled from different vintages over the course of fifteen years (albeit with small amounts of much older wine), this Oloroso is a mouthwatering ambassador for the multi-aged virtues of the Solera process. Combining unctuous, nutty richness and a surprisingly refreshing, mouthwatering finish, this is a timeless treat that is very deservedly en vogue once again!

2018 Orange Wine "80 / 20" (Forlong, Bodegas)

Bodega de Forlong, “80/20” Orange Wine, Cadiz, Andalucía, Spain 2018

{organic} 100% Palomino, Pedro Ximinez skins

LEMON, PINEAPPLE, LIGHTLY FUNKY. CHALK & ORANGE PEEL

Wondering what orange wine is? Here’s the scoop: white wine grapes are pressed, then the juice is left to ferment with the skins instead of being filtered off. This imparts more body, color, and texture, as well as yielding a much more natural, less processed wine. Quirkily, grapes most often found in sherry are used here: Palomino grapes for the juice, with Pedro Ximinez skins added to the fermentation and left to mingle for 25 days.

Serving Suggestion: Lemon grilled tilapia w/ jasmine rice. Any combo of hard sheep’s milk cheeses, such as Manchego, Roncal, or Ossau-Iraty.

2017 Orange Wine "Amigo Imaginario" (Forlong, Bodegas)

{organic} 100% Palomino aged 25 days on Pedro Ximenez skins (Amphora & oak aged)

BLOOD ORANGE, CELERY SEED, NUTTY SHERRY HINT.

This is one of the most adventurous and exciting wines we’ve tasted recently. An orange wine from the sherry region, aged in barrels previously used in the production of Oloroso. The “imaginary friend” of this wine is the skins of Pedro Ximenez, instead of its own Palomino skins, which winegrower Alex says are not as delicious tasting as those of PX. This is not only an exotic and interesting production method, but the wine tastes fantastic and engaging!

Serving Suggestion: Grilled beef tenderloin topped w/ sauteed foie gras & drizzled w/ a Pedro Ximenez reduction & sprinkled w/ fried shallot slices.

{organic} 100% Müller-Thurgau

GRANNY SMITH & PINEAPPLE, HAZY & HERBACEOUS, LEMONADE (WITHOUT THE SWEETNESS!)

More reminiscent of a gourmet Hefeweizen/lemonade shandy than the beer slogan its moniker seems to be derived from, this dry, super-session-able, orange-ish delight clocks in at a meager 11% alcohol and begs to be discovered as the diurnal-friendly guzzler that it is. But, as much fun as this is, it isn’t all fun, and there are as many layers of intrigue to this wine as there are puns wrapped up in its branding! Müller-Thurgau is an all-too-familiar yet mysterious offspring of Riesling celebrated by some but best known as bulk wine fodder. However, you’d never suspect that from this unique beauty.

Serving Suggestion: Reuben on pumpernickel w/ horseradish mustard & pickled beets. Ricotta pizza w/ pineapple, capers, & pickled onions.

2019 Orange Wine ''Abartig Einfach'' (Edelbauer, Christoph)

Christoph Edelbauer, Orange Wine "Abartig Einfach", Kamptal, Austria 2019

{organic} 50% Gewürztraminer, 50% Muscat

POMELO & BLOOD ORANGE, REFRESHINGLY ASTRINGENT, A HAZY SUNSET

Lush yet lithe, funky yet fresh, assertive yet approachable, this bottle is filled with delicious contradictions. This latest arrival from Kamptal's Christoph Edelbauer is forged from (yet unrecognizable as) Gewürztraminer and Muscat, wrapping the pair of typically hyper-aromatic varieties in a hazy, chiseled, orange package unto itself. Initially most reminiscent of pomelo or grapefruit, sharp, zesty citrus gives way to undercurrents of young persimmon and red fruit. The finish is lush and yeasty, taking the palate for quite the rollercoaster ride.

Serving Suggestion: Savory kimchi pancake w/ squid & extra scallions. Arugula/pomegranate salad w/ blue cheese & blood orange vinaigrette.

Clos Saint Fiacre, Orléans Rosé, Loire Valley, France 2019

{sustainable} 70% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Gris

LINGONBERRY & STRAWBERRY, FRESH & LIVELY, SPICY & HERBAL

Venturing northeast (inching toward Paris) from the Loire’s sprawling, famous Touraine, Orléans is an appellation that remains unfamiliar to most wine lovers on this side of the Atlantic. What it lacks in proliferation, however, it more than makes up for in character in the hands of passionate, capable producers like the centuries-old Clos Saint Fiacre. This rosé exudes an untamed energy through its fresh, clean, vibrant constitution, recalling forest berries and wispy herbs. This is a rosé for any season – refreshing in summer yet elegantly food friendly throughout the year.

Serving Suggestion: Country ham quiche w/ spinach, mint, & dill. Red cabbage & baby spinach salad w/ green apple slices & lingonberry dressing.

BLACK CHERRY & CASSIS, HERBACIOUS SPICE, FIRM & GENEROUS

Hailing from the very northerly and rather rare Loire appellation known as Orléans, this is a Pinot Noir double feature starring the Meunier mutation best known for its work in Champagne with support from the more familiar regular Pinot Noir (sans Meunier’s downy leaves). The result is bright and firm yet appealingly ripe and generous with familiarly Pinot-ish cherry fruit and a spicy herbaceousness (including a whisper of juniper) that lies somewhere between Oregon Pinot and Loire Cab Franc. Captivating!

Serving Suggestions: Pumpernickel crostini w/ venison or bison tartare. Baked brie w/ toasted pecans, rosemary, & lingonberry preserves.

BOSC PEAR & CLEMENTINE, WISPY GARDENIA, ALMOND

If you have heard of Pacherenc du Vic Bilh, you deserve a pat on the back. This rarely seen white wine from Madiran is one of France's best kept secrets. In fact, Christine Dupuy produces just a few hundred cases per year. The wine is aged on its lees and develops additional complexity in French oak for 2 months before bottling. This dry white tastes of almonds and hazelnuts with pear skin, citrus, tangy apricot and the ethereal perfume of gardenias.

Serving Suggestions: This is best with traditional SW French dishes like Poule au Pot or Poulet Basquaise. Flaky baked trout w/ dill and a fresh chick pea salad w/ heirloom tomatoes & sweet yellow onion.

LEMONY FRESH & ZESTY, FLORAL & HERBACEOUS, LIGHTLY SMOKY

Lamberto Vannucci’s wines are named after a horse training facility close to his vineyards; the grape got its name from the Italian word for sheep, pecora, since they supposedly love to eat it as they’re herded down the hills. It’s bright, clean, with zesty lemon citrus, and a touch of jasmine flower and fresh herbs. So refreshing, perhaps the perfect wine to have after a vigorous session of horse training or sheep herding.

Pepperoni, 1/2 Chub (San Guiseppe Salami Co.)

Giacomo's Salumi -Pepperoni 1/2 Stick, Greensoboro, NC

Traditional spicy pepperoni made right here in NC.

Ground anise and cracked red pepper flakes give this handmade pepperoni its spice. This meaty Italian specialty boasts of a full flavor not masked by fat and fillers.

Care instructions for your artisan salami:

1) Once you open the plastic wrapper, never put the salami back in any type of plastic wrapper or it will mold.

2) Only peel back the casing as far as you plan on eating in one day. When you are ready to serve again, cut off a slice of the dry end that was exposed.

3) This is a coarse grind salami, so we recommend slicing it as thinly as possible with a very sharp knife. Translucently thin if possible!

4) Do not refrigerate the salami after opening it. It is cured, and will dry naturally in the open air. We recommend hanging it above your sink as it releases a small amount of natural pork grease.

5) As the salami ages, it will become more firm and flavorful in an old world style. Enjoy!!

STRAWBERRY & PLUM BLOSSOM, FLINT & FENNEL POLLEN

Pineau d’Aunis, a grape with a storied history in France’s Loire Valley - particularly the northernmost regions lying above Touraine, is a cool-climate specialist. While it is increasingly well-regarded for its very distinctive, earthy reds, its best known role is that of being vinified as pretty, subtle, yet characterful rosés. It’s perfectly cast in this offering from Domaine de la Rochette, acting as an ambassador for the variety’s strengths while also simply serving up a deliciously refreshing, crisp, clean sipper.

MANDARIN ORANGE, WHITE PEACH, ALMONDS, WHITE FLOWERS

What's a grape gotta do to get some attention around here?

Visintini, Pinot Grigio, Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy 2019

{organic} 100% Pinot Grigio

PEARSKIN & PLUMCOT, FLORAL & MINERALLY, COPPERTONED COLORSCHEME

Pinot Gris is indeed a native to France, but, despite its impressive stature in Alsace, the grape arguably reaches its zenith in the far northeastern reaches of Italy. Friuli is one of the grape’s clear capitals, and the region’s tendencies to celebrate the variety's propensity toward richer, more expressive variations serves it well. This offering from Visintini bursts from the glass with its eye-catching copper colorations and autumnal, floral perfume. Refreshing, roughhewn Korean pear-like texture (from extended skin contact) and appropriately pinkish, plumcot-like fruit interwoven with mountain stream minerality make this a real treat for the senses.

Serving Suggestion: Shrimp & porcini risotto w/ olive oil & garlic. Grilled tofu salad w/ red cabbage, radish, carrot, & sesame oil / chili-garlic seasoning.

ELEGANT APPLE, FIRM & FRESH, MINERALLY GUSTO

South Tyrol, better known to the wine world as Alto-Adige, lies within the borders of Italy at the foot of the Alps, but most of its population speak German. This influence also explains why so many of the grapes grown here are also specialties of Alsace, like Pinot Gris/Ruländer.  While Italian Pinot Grigio often brings to mind inoffensive (i.e. bland) whites for many, the variety actually lends itself to richness and structure. Castelfeder's Pinot Grigio, made by a fellow by the name of Günter, walks a perfect line between approachability and substance. Ample acidity and bright mineral come firmly attached with crisp apple and pear flavors.

Serving Suggestion: A refreshing foil to wintery treats like poached trout w/ almond shavings & buttery polenta w/ alpine cheese. Potato dumplings w/ radicchio or endives.

This excellent representation of the grape balances the style of Italy’s crisp and fresh Pinot Grigios with Alsace’s complex and layered Pinot Gris, offering bright fruit atop a deep, rich mouthfeel. A versatile crowd pleaser, this is a great choice for a big party or as your go-to white to keep in the fridge for all occasions.

Serving Suggestions: Grilled chicken breasts with a creamy lemon herb sauce. A salad of buttery Bibb lettuce with a dijon vinaigrette.

100% Pinot Nero

BLACKBERRIES, RIPE RED RASPBERRIES, VIOLETS, SOFT & SMOOTH

Wander due south from the industrial cityscape of Milan, and after a few miles Italy really starts to look like ITALY. Tucked in the gentle hills of around Pavia sits Tenuta Mazzolino, run by a French-Italian family specializing in Pinot Noir. This easy-going example is lush and approachable with soft floral notes and ripe red fruit. It fits right in with other high-quality, low-price Pinot, except with a strain of acidity that marks it as uniquely Italian. Almost Dolcetto-esque.

Serving Suggestion: A good match for light pastas with a bit of spice. Spaghetti with cracked red pepper, garlic, pecorino and herbs comes to mind.

CHERRY, EARTHY MINERAL, FRENCH OAK

Working from 11 hectares in the town of Oppenheim, the Heyden family is making an international splash. Winemaking prodigy Frank Heyden combines grapes from his Schlöss vineyard (for elegance and fruit) with those from his Kreuz vineyard (for weight and body). This is a scream and will eradicate any misconceptions you have about German reds. Satisfyingly rich and Burgundian in style, this Zeppelin of a Pinot revels in the variety's classic character and illustrates why Pinot is now Germany's most planted red varietal!

We've watched this winery get better every year and now the Marchesi family has produced another great vintage for Montinore! This superb Pinot looks like a Pinot, smells like a Pinot and yes, tastes like a Pinot! Unfortunately this is becoming more rare these days.

The Bliss Vineyard was purchased on a whim by Grandpa Irv Bliss back in the late 1930s. Nearly a century later, this 450 acre ranch produces some of the best values to be found in Californian wine. This sustainably farmed Pinot Noir has lush red fruits leading into a cola-spiced finish. The Mendocino area benefits from the cooling influence of the Pacific, allowing this wine to preserve its brightness and acidity. A textbook example of Cali Pinot.

From Apaltagua's vineyards in Chile's cool and Pacific-influenced region of southern Curico comes this most impressive of Pinot Noir values. Appropriately delicate but with uncharacteristic (at this price range!) depth and substance, this is a Pinot that you can really sink your teeth into. Black fruit and an enveloping impression of spicy roundness from a kiss of new oak merge seamlessly in a friendly and elegant package.

2017 Pinot Noir ''Southern Valleys'' (Spy Valley)

Spy Valley, Pinot Noir "Southern Valleys", Marlborough, New Zealand 2017

100% Pinot Noir

JUICY CHERRYISH FRUIT MARBLED WITH HERBACEOUS SPICE AND NOTES OF RUSTIC UNDERBRUSH

Firm, classic, and with brambly undercurrents that remind us of fall, this Marlborough Pinot stylistically rises, perhaps, somewhere between its famous colleagues further south in Central Otago and those from across the Pacific in Oregon’s Willamette. Herbaceous spice and rustic underbrush notes marble juicy cherryish fruit that is unmistakably that of Pinot Noir. Spy Valley takes its eccentric name (and Morse code-adorned label) from proximity to a nearby secure communications base, but the estate isn’t secretive about its passion for terroir and sustainability.

Serving Suggestions: Shepherd’s pie w/ ground mutton, onions, & peas topped w/ smashed &/or scalloped sweet potatoes. Pizza w/ pecorino, fiddleheads, leeks, & sliced grape tomatoes.

2019 Pinot Noir Alsace (Baur, Charles)

SILKY BLACK PLUM, SOFT HERBS & EARTH, ELEGANT

Arnaud Baur is proud of his organic vineyards in Alsace, where organic isn't the norm. He points to the brown, lifeless rows of his neighbor's non-organic vineyards, a stark contrast to his vibrantly green vines. A Pinot Noir from Alsace, despite being the region’s most significant red grape, is something we don’t see every day. Historically it's been too cold here to ripen red grapes, but as the world warms, spots like this are increasingly producing delicate reds.

Serving suggestion: Wintery fare: choucroute garnie (sauerkraut, sausage & potatoes in white wine) or a holiday feast w/ a roast bird & root veggies.

Shea Vineyards used to sell their entire crop to high-end Pinot producers throughout Oregon, and remains one of the most sought after growers on the West Coast. They figured they ought to keep some of the good stuff for themselves, so they started with this Estate bottling from their most serendipitous lots. This is a fine example of how Oregon Pinot Noir can gracefully walk the line between Burgundian and New World style wine, with earthy notes and hearty acidity backing up ripe, lip-smacking dark fruit.

2017 Pinotage (Beaumont)

BLACK CHERRY & CURRANT, LEATHER, BLACK TEA & VANILLA

We’re absolutely not trying to cuss Pinotage, but we’ve no choice but to open with the undeniably backhanded compliment that this is a particularly (dare we say peculiarly?) elegant example of the variety. The uniquely South African Cinsault/Pinot Noir crossing is infamous for its smoky, meaty (even gamy) persona. This rendition keeps a bit of that in sight, for sure, but it’s also got a poise and balance rarely encountered in wines made from the grape. Dating back to the 1700s, Beaumont’s cellar was originally operated by the legendary Dutch East India Company. Its contemporary history began in the mid 70s when it was purchased by the Beaumonts.

Serving Suggestion: Mesquite brisket w/ mission fig-port gastrique & potato skin frites. Loaded baked sweet potato w/ refried black beans, cilantro, avocado, & smoked paprika.

RIPE STRAWBERRY, INTENSELY BLOSSOMY FRAGRANCE, MOUTHWATERING ACIDITY

Piquepoul Noir, an ancient Mediterranean varietal best known through its lighter skinned mutation (typically called Picpoul) was once a much more prominent force in the world of Rhone and Languedoc reds. Traceable to the 1300s, the grape is most often now encountered in minuscule percentages via high-end Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This exotic rosé, however, offers a rare opportunity to experience Piquepoul Noir in monologue-mode, showcasing spice and intensely floral aromas. Zesty, berryish fruit and mouthwatering acidity seal the deal, guaranteeing a fantastically refreshing finish. Kick it old school with this sublimely youthful rosé!

Serving Suggestion: Monkfish-centric bouillabaisse w/ saffron & fennel. Jerk sweet potato & black bean curry w/ demerara sugar & roasted red peppers.

Boasting two offerings from the northern Minho (the land of Vinho Verde), two from Lisboa (in the countryside of the nation's capital), and two from a Tejo-based father and son team that are among our most recent Wine Authorities Selections discoveries, the pack is as diverse as it is delicious.

The Alonso family handpicks this single vineyard wine before sending it underground to barrel age in their 300 year old cave winery. This is a rich, elegant expression of the rare Prieto Picudo, a grape whose thick skins and paucity of juice make for great intensity but also balance. In this reserve bottling, oak accentuates rather than masking the grape's unique personality and spice.

Agricola di Plantamura, Primitivo, Gioia de Colle, Puglia, Italy 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Primitivo

BRAMBLY RASPBERRY, FLINTY SPICE, TARRY EARTH

The earliest records naming Primitivo in Puglia arise precisely from Gioia del Colle, where the 18th century priest Filippo Francesco Indellicati marveled at how this hardy varietal flourished on the plateaus of Le Murge, ripening early to combat hot days and plummeting temperatures at night.  Mariangela Plantamura’s vines were planted by her grandfather from descendants of Don Indellicati’s first cultivars, and her family practices organic and biodynamic farming methods to create wines that are aromatic and deceptively structured, with bright fruit that settles into the warm earthiness of dried leaves. Veramente squisito.  

Serving Suggestions:  Cavetelli with arugula and ricotta marzotica.  Chicory flower and asparagus frittata with a side of fried fava beans and potatoes.

BRAMBLY BLACK RASPBERRY & CHERRY PRESERVES, MOCHA & MINT

Produced biodynamically with love and a defiantly quality-over-quantity approach, the “Mezzanotte” is one of Lisa Gilbee’s profoundly Puglian offerings of Primitivo. An Australian native, she settled in Italy just over two decades ago and, after working as a winemaker both there and abroad, began Morella in 2004, naming the estate for her Italian husband. She’s fallen in love with the local Primitivo grape and with her vineyards, consisting of low-yeilding bush vines located less than two miles from the Ionian Sea. Balanced yet intensely concentrated with dried berryish fruit and peppery spice. Classic!

40% Garnacha Blanca, 36% Macabeo, 20% Viognier, 4% Pedro Ximenez

RIPE MELON & GUANABANA, UNCTUOUS & FRESH

Wine is like a grandfather in many ways. We all think ours is the best. In this case, we're right. As unyielding and characterful as our grandfathers tend to be, the Joan Giné is named for the winemaker's grandfather. The rationale was probably more endearing, but it is a timely personification of the poor, slate/quartz soils of Priorat that fetch the region its fame and fortune. After their vines have sifted through these soils, the juice then wises up for 8 months in new French oak barrels. It's fleshy and juicy with mature layers of tropical fruits, white flowers, and stack stone minerality.

Serving Suggestion: Lobster rolls in the tradition of Maine. Lemon risotto with or without pan-seared scallops and garnished with arugula pesto. Almond-vanilla rice pudding.

On the banks of Lake Neusiedl - a warm shallow inland saltwater sea - the town of Apetlon occupies the lowest elevation in all of Austria.

DARK FRUITED, SAVORY, RICH BUT NOT HEAVY

Matthew Rorick has done everything from semi-pro skateboarding to serving in the Navy, but his most daring adventure was purchasing an 80 year old vineyard in the remote Sierra Nevada foothills. Planted with an eclectic assortment of varieties that predate California’s conversion to a Cabernet and Chardonnay-centric monoculture, his organic, high elevation vineyard is the source of this suave, seductive new school California red made in a natural, hands-off style.

2019 Ribera del Duero Tinto Roble "Montecastrillo" (Torremilanos, Finca)

Finca Torremilanos, Ribera del Duero Tinto "Montecastrillo", Ribera del Duero, Spain, 2019

100% Tempranillo {biodynamic}

BLACK CHERRY & BOYSENBERRY, SANDALWOOD & TOBACCO

Northern-central Spain’s Ribera del Duero has a well-earned reputation regarding its outstanding Tempranillo-based reds, but we tend to be impressed with sturdiness that its wines exemplify rather than how easy they are on the wallet. This righteous rendition, however, manages to muster the concentration that we crave and expect in an affably juicy, less tannic package that doesn’t break the bank. Four months time in French oak barrels seals the deal with supple, cedary spice!

Serving Suggestion: Empanadas w/ ground beaf, lentils, & creamy corn. Grilled flatbread w/ caramelized onions & manchego.

2020 Ribolla Gialla (Visintini)

Visintini, Ribolla Gialla, Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy 2020

{biodynamic} 100% Ribolla Gialla

LEMON & FLORAL AROMAS. ELEGANT, SUBTLE, BRIGHT.

In the 14th century the poet Boccaccio listed the consumption of Ribolla Gialla as one of the sins of gluttony, but if drinking this wine is wrong, we don’t want to be right! Indigenous to Italy and found mostly in northeastern Friuli, the grape is also found in Slovenia under the name Rebula. This example is a paragon of understated elegance, with delicate minerality, clean flavors, satisfying acidity, and a lingering finish.

Serving Suggestion: Crab spaghettini w/ lemon gremolata & red chili flakes. Tomato cucumber salad w/ fresh dill fried capers. Prosciutto & arugula pesto pizza.

2017 Riesling "3 Brooms" (Barker's Marque)

Barker's Marque, "3 Brooms" Riesling, Marlborough, NZ 2017

100% Riesling

GREEN APPLE & GRAPEFRUIT PEEL. CRISP, MINERAL, ACID-DRIVEN.

Hailing from the southeast corner of Marlborough’s winemaking region, this cooler-climate Riesling highlights the fresh fruit and mineral qualities unique to the Awatere Valley. Floral notes, bright citrus, a hint of chamomile, and the varietal’s distinct diesel aroma are followed by fresh flavors of green apples, crisp acidity, and a dry, juicy finish make this a fantastic summer sipper and a great alternative for fans of NZ Sauvignon Blanc looking to for something familiar yet exotic.

Serving Suggestion: Grapefruit, seaweed, & crab salad w/ miso dressing. Shrimp salad w/ lime, cilantro, & Greek yogurt served in an avocado half.

2018 Riesling "Dürnstein" Federspiel (Tegernseerhof)

Tegernseerhof, Riesling Federspiel "Dürnstein", Wachau, Austria 2018

100% Riesling

LAZER DRY. PINEAPPLE & TANGY MANGO, LIME & RICH MINERALITY

This stunningly complex, dry Riesling from a steeply terraced, hillside vineyard site in Austria's revered Wachau region is the kind of wine that makes red-wine-only drinkers change sides or shows Riesling skeptics the error of their ways. It's also the kind of wine that you must take home right now. It's that good. Martin Mittelbach is already one of the greats in this most prestigious (and reliably expensive) of Austrian regions, but, like him, his reputation is still young, and his wines represent some of the most impressive values one could reasonably (or even unreasonably) hope to find from the Wachau.

Serving Suggestion: Smoked trout w/ dill & lemon crème fraiche. Czech potato pancakes w/ caraway seeds, oregano, & sour cream.

RIPE BOSC PEAR, JUICY TANGERINE AND BALANCED ACIDITY

In 1999, Alexander Gysler took over the production of his family's vineyard. Since then, he has made a name for himeslf as part of the new wave of German winegrowers helping to boldly redefine and bolster the nation's international image. His wines are balanced, chiseled, and almost architectural - deeply soulful with vibrant charm.

When Karl Heyden’s son, Frank, took over winemaking at the family estate, he went to work catapulting quality to new heights. With a deep commitment to sustainable agriculture, the Heyden family is a leader not only in quality but environmental friendliness as well. With inspired balance, lemony-limeish citrus, and glimmering minerality shining through, it's a true head turner!

Serving Suggestions: This wine plays well with powerful, pungent flavors. Stuffed cabbage with tomatoes and nutmeg is a natural. Strong, aged goat cheeses make for heavenly pairings.

TART PINEAPPLE & ZESTY LIME, CLEAN SLATE, ANGULAR ACIDITY

With no residual sugar to be found, this driest offering among the “Wolf Wines” from Staffelter Hof teams with the signature tropical citrus and minerality of modern Mosel offerings and does so enticingly and accessibly. Named “Magnus” for a helpful wolf who lived a millennium ago and helped the ancestors of Staffelter Hof when they found themselves with no beast of burden to help ferry stones around (for some reason). Appropriate for a wine whose vibrant glimmer makes us want to howl at the moon!

{organic} 100% Riesling

TROPICALICIOUS ADVENTURE DOWN A RIVER OF WARM HONEY

Meet eiswein: a rare dessert wine made from grapes that froze on the vine, were picked on that same cold winter night, and pressed while frozen, yielding a few drops each of rich, concentrated juice. The resulting wine is nothing short of magical: unctuous, heady with tropical fruit and citrus peel, ripe peach, juicy pear, and fresh-cut honeycomb. All the summery sweetness is tempered by blindingly bright acidity, cleansing the palate and getting you ready for more. Brace yourselves.

Serving Suggestion: Liverwurst spread thin on dark rye bread. Cinnamon- and nutmeg-spiced apple tart, topped w/ creme brulee. Sipped slowly beside a fire, on a winter night so clear that you can almost see by starlight.

Working biodynamically for over a decade, he has both the raw materials and the vision to craft truly extraordinary wine.

2017 Riesling Smaragd "Bergdistel" (Tegernseerhof)

Tegernseerhof, Riesling "Bergdistel" Wachau, Austria 2017

100% Riesling

RIPE LIME & PINEAPPLE, SUAVE MINERAL, RACY YET RICH

Austria’s Wachau, unlike Germany’s Rheingau, cannot claim to be the cradle of Riesling’s (likely medieval) origins, but it certainly can and does offer friendly yet fierce competition as the site of the variety’s absolute zenith. Imposingly steep, terraced vineyards are stony and sun-soaked guaranteeing impressive ripeness (here in one of Austria’s coolest viticultural climates) while gneiss soils further bolster acidity. Most would agree that Smaragd classé like this represent Austria’s crème de la crème, but subjectivity aside, these are the elites of the elite. Wachau and Martin Mittelbach’s Tegernseerhof seems to revel in not only meeting and exceeding expectations but doing so without climbing into the catastrophic price ranges of his colleagues and competitors. Utopie!

Serving Suggestion: Smoked trout schnitzel w/ caper-mustard cream sauce & lemony white asparagus w/ marinated artichoke hearts. Szechuan salt & pepper squid & pickled lotus root.

True to its name, the Kellerberg is indeed a mountain whose vinous denizens are destined for the cellar (and are often capable of aging gracefully for aeons). The grandest of what might be considered Austria’s grand crus, this steeply sloping corner of the Wachau isn’t only prized by Austrians but is indisputably one of Riesling’s world capitals and a World Heritage Site. This spectacular specimen of Riesling is bone dry, blazingly acidic, resoundingly ripe, and built around a rock-solid core of mineralistic complexity.

“Sandstein,” unsurprisingly refers to the sandstone vineyard site that the vines responsible for this cuvée call home. If judging a book by its cover is a bad idea, then choosing a wine by its label is similarly unwise. Yet here is a wine whose label actually does speak volumes aesthetically. Alexander Gysler proudly “strives for less,” and the minimalism, elegance, and utopian purity of his wines are almost architectural, tangible elements on the tongue. This offering perfectly encapsulates the essence of contemporary, dry Rheinhessen Riesling – robustly ripe yet enticingly acidic, agile, and angular.

The family ownership of these 37 acres can be traced back seven generations, and yet the reputation surrounding the wines stems as much from their current excellence and exuberant character as it does from notions of historical significance.

LEMON & GOLDEN APPLE, LIQUID MINERAL ELEGANCE, RACY & RIPE

From the far northeastern reaches of Austria, the sprawling Weinviertel region, this generous dry Riesling balances characteristic brightness with a, perhaps, somewhat unexpected impression of roundness & juiciness (maybe courtesy, in part, of the 50 year-old vines employed) given these climes’ reputation for leaner, more herbaceous stylings. The label sports the distinction “Rheinriesling,” but don’t be confused as this term is helpful here and in Czecchia’s Moravia to the north to distinguish from the unrelated Croatian native, Welschriesling, whose presence is significant in this part of Austria.

Dr. Thanisch's vineyards slide right into the picturesque town of Bernkastel, nestled in a cozy curve of the Mosel river. It's an advantageous place to care for some of the oldest Riesling vines in Germany. This is a spectacular example of German expertise where it comes to this most complex of grapes. Flinty and smoky aromas vie for your attentions with heady tropical and citrus notes. A hint of classic petrol leads to a luxurious, almost oily texture. Very lightly sweet, but it's all cleaned up by zooming acidity. Damn, that's delicious.

This is the oldest family-run Bodega in San Asensio and we love all their wines.

SPICE, CLOVE, TOASTY OAK, RIPE CHERRY FRUIT

Located in San Asensio, Rioja Alta, Bodegas Perica still embraces the charm and elegance of cellar aged Spanish wine. This Gran Reserva is their current release at the young age of 9 years old. Sourced from their top vineyards in La Rioja Alta, the hand picked grape clusters are fermented in large French oak vats, then transferred to French oak barrels for 28 months of aging before going to sleep in bottle waiting years for release. The result is simply wine magic. Traditional in style, but most pleasing to the modern day, fruit-driven wine drinker, this Gran Reserva is grand for such a modest price.

Serving Suggestion: Braised pork belly with mushrooms, cippolini onions and a cinnamon stick, or grilled hot Italian sausages with roasted potatoes and rosemary.

From Bodegas Perica's single vineyard "Olagosa", comes this classic Rioja Reserva, relentlessly traditional. Made in the same style, from the same vineyard for more than 50 years, this wine is a step into the past. Spicy, toasty flavors abound, this wine spent two years in oak barrels before aging in their cellar another four. The dried berry and earth flavors have great complexity especially when that whiff of leather comes through. Vive España!

Ostatu reliably makes some of the brightest, most balanced Riojas we encounter, and it’s no surprise that their rosé offering should, year after year, provide us with a memorable favorite (albeit in limited quantities). Stoking a zesty collaboration between Tempranillo and Garnacha and coaxing delightfully floral & tropical undercurrents from a kiss of Viura, the estate employs its coveted, high-elevation vineyards and calcareous terrain to excellent effect. Juicy and generous yet luxuriously light on its feet, this pale, pink sipper is irresistible throughout the year and transcendent beneath a late spring or summer's twilight sky.

2017 Rioja Tinto "6 Cepas" (Perica, Bodegas)

Bodegas Perica, "6 Cepas" Rioja Tinto, La Rioja, Spain 2016

100% Tempranillo

BLACK FRUIT & SPICE, SOFT TANNINS, TOUCH OF TOASTY OAK

Now in their third generation, Bodegas Perica once again delivers stellar Rioja at an even better value. With the “6 Cepas” series, the García family sought to showcase the ever-malleable Tempranillo grape in a younger and fresher form. Unlike in their single vineyard Olagosa series, this project includes six different plots in Rioja Alta—hence the name 6 Cepas. Signature dark fruit can be found throughout, while the time in new French oak softens the tannins and accentuates the wine’s spicy nature. Distinctly Rioja while being uncommonly crushable.

Serving Suggestions: Thinly sliced Serrano ham, a wedge of Manchego, Manzanilla olives, Marcona almonds, & a fresh baguette.

RIPE CHERRY & PLUM, PEPPER & FRESH HERBS

Our favorite donkey has returned from the Ferro family farm in Asti carrying a care package of lovely liter bottles. Arriving just in time for summer, this zesty red blend is refreshing and (potentially a little too?) easy to drink without coming off too light or lean. Biodynamically farmed from chalk and clay-based vineyards, this quartet of signature Piemontese grapes gets along splendidly, finding a beautifully balanced combination of generous fruit, herbaceous spice, vibrant acidity, and invigorating tannic texture.

Domaine la Bouysse, Rosé "B", Languedoc, France, 2020{organic} 35% Cinsault, 34% Syrah, 31% Grenache

PINK BERRYISH BRIGHTNESS, JUICY & FLORAL

While we can't necessarily concur that this delightful pink sipper has the back label's described "obstinacy in the finish," it is tangy and ripe with super-youthful, freshly-fermented aromas. Albeit brimming with tons of bright fruit, there's a complex touch of earthiness to stave off any accusations of simplicity. Straight out of the southwestern Languedoc's Corbieres, Bouysse continues to build an impressive and varied catalogue of the region's signature reds as well as zesty whites and substantially refreshing rosés like this beautiful creature.

Serving Suggestion: Seared tuna on a bed of julienned slaw w/ sesame & ginger. Caprese salad w/ strawberry balsamic reduction & Himalayan salt.

60% Grolleau Noir, 40% Gamay

JUICY-TART PLUM & GRENADINE, BLOSSOMY FRESHNESS

While this rosy refresher comes to us from the lakeside land of Muscadet, it features a variety best known for its rosé work in the Middle-Loire’s Anjou. This, however, is quite different from the fleshier, classically less-dry rosés from the Loire lore of yore. At a thirst-quenchingly meager 11.5% alcohol and teaming with tongue-tingling acidity, this pretty pink is practically the promised land of rosé refreshment.

Serving Suggestion: Mac & cheese-style cauliflower casserole w/ blistered green beans & garlic-miso sauce. "General Tso’s" fried tofu w/ lo mein & baby corn.

{organic} 95% Carignan, 5% Muscat

JUICY RASPBERRY & LEMON ZEST, FIRM & HYPER-REFRESHING

Carignan, with its reputation for robust rusticity, is probably not the grape that you'd immediately suspect upon tasting this vibrantly berryish and lightly floral rosé from the northwestern fringe of the Provençal countryside. As eloquently balanced as this wine is, we can't help but think of it as the adult equivalent of a raspberry-lemon push pop – albeit dry! Because a bottle couldn't possibly provide enough wine this refreshing, Domaine La Ligière has brilliantly put it in a three liter box!

Serving Suggestion: Papaya salad w/ grilled squid & pork. Battered & fried cubanelle peppers w/ lemon juice & paprika.

Domaine Cady, Rosé de Loire, Middle Loire, France, 2020

{organic} 50% Gamay, 50% Grolleau

CHERRY & TART DAMSON PLUM, JUICY & CRISP, WISPY MINERAL

A collaboration between the famous Gamay and the decidedly less famous but very rosé-friendly workhorse grape, Grolleau, this vibrant, ruby-tented sipper is an elegantly expressive and beautifully balanced representative of what we love about Middle Loire rosé. While it hails from Anjou, it’s a very different beast from the famously off-dry blushes of the Anjou region we might have expected a generation ago. No, this one is completely dry with flourishes of red berry and tart, stone fruit-like flavors. The finish is cleansing and supported by delicately mineralistic notes, making this a great companion for delicate, salty dishes with high acidity and/or creamy consistencies.

Serving Suggestion: Gravlax. Cold rice vermicelli salad w/ cucumber, sweet cherry tomatoes, diced jalapeño, & rice wine vinegar.

BLACKBERRY & BAKED STRAWBERRY, DARK CHOCOLATE & GARRIGUES

Hailing from the western reaches of the Southern Rhone, the red entry into Rocalière's “Initial R” series is an impressive counterpart to the estate’s robust Lirac Rouge and carries itself with a similar heft of the spicy Mediterranean French perfumes collectively known as “Garrigues.” Sèverine Lemoine crafts all of her wines biodynamically, and her attention to detail and work ethic is evident. Full-bodied, energetic, and a little bit rugged, this is an ideal candidate for “house wine” to red wine lovers who demand an additional intensity from their favorite daily tipple. Vive le Mediterranée!

FLESHY BLACK FRUIT, DARK & ROASTY, LAVENDER-LISCIOUS

If you thought that sipping sweet tea on a Mississippi porch was the only way to experience the "absolute south," you've got another think coming! This Rhone red has the buxom boldness of Dolly Parton, the meatiness of mee-maw's pot roast, and the freshness of a sack o' lavender tucked into your dresser drawers. Not unlike a truck driven resolutely into a river, Carignan is one histrionic grape! Tempered by its more northerly collegue, Syrah, it's an absolutely beautiful addition to any dinner table. Our compasses are going crazy, and we've reached the "Sud Absolu"!

Upon opening, the oak and vanilla take center stage, with the fruit starting to come out as the wine breathes - and then the real show starts. Rich lemon custard, spiced baked pears, grilled pineapple, orange blossom, and honeysuckle, framed delicately by that toasty vanilla that was at first so dominant, winding up with a finish so long you'll wonder if it'll ever end.

CASSIS & BLACK PLUM, LEATHER & A WHISPER OF CHIMNEY SMOKE

Saint-Joseph is a mystifyingly sprawling appellation - a narrow 40 mile strip from north to south on the Rhone river’s right bank. As one might imagine, quality from domaine to domaine is not consistent, but some of the absolute best Northern Rhone “values" (we’re talking about sub-$100, here) can be found in various corners of the region. This is a noteworthy contender for the most distinctive Northern Rhone red we’ve carried. It tastes like the label might suggest – autumnal, colorful, romantic, and mysterious. This is masterful Syrah that’s every bit as generous as its Grenache-driven neighbors to the south and Pinot Noir colleagues to the north in Burgundy.

Serving suggestion: Duck bacon. Venison. Riceberry risotto (made with smoked gouda & smoked carrot slivers).

Salami "Classico" 1/2 Chub (San Guiseppe Salami Co.)

Giacomo's Salumi - Soppresseta Classico "San Guiseppe"

1/2 Chub

Giacomo’s famous, world-renowned soppressata, the Classico offers to the discerning palate a robust flavor derived from perfect, natural fermentation. Timing and the right balance of salt and pepper provide an impressive soppressata that could rival any in Sicily.

Care instructions for your artisan salami:

1) Once you open the plastic wrapper, never put the salami back in any type of plastic wrapper or it will mold.

2) Only peel back the casing as far as you plan on eating in one day. When you are ready to serve again, cut off a slice of the dry end that was exposed.

3) This is a coarse grind salami, so we recommend slicing it as thinly as possible with a very sharp knife. Translucently thin if possible!

4) Do not refrigerate the salami after opening it. It is cured, and will dry naturally in the open air. We recommend hanging it above your sink as it releases a small amount of natural pork grease.

5) As the salami ages, it will become more firm and flavorful in an old world style. Enjoy!!

Giacomo's Salumi - Salami "Vesuviano" 1/2 Chub

This salami combines the traditional flavors of Giacomo's Classico with the flare of cayenne pepper and finely chopped, imported, aged provolone.

Care instructions for your artisan salami:

1) Once you open the plastic wrapper, never put the salami back in any type of plastic wrapper or it will mold.

2) Only peel back the casing as far as you plan on eating in one day. When you are ready to serve again, cut off a slice of the dry end that was exposed.

3) This is a coarse grind salami, so we recommend slicing it as thinly as possible with a very sharp knife. Translucently thin if possible!

4) Do not refrigerate the salami after opening it. It is cured, and will dry naturally in the open air. We recommend hanging it above your sink as it releases a small amount of natural pork grease.

5) As the salami ages, it will become more firm and flavorful in an old world style. Enjoy!!

2019 Samling 88 (Scheurebe) (Strauss)

Strauss, Samling 88 Classic, Scheurebe, Steiermark, Austria, 2019

100% Scheurebe

FLORAL, MANGO & GUAVA, HINTS OF THYME

Samling 88 (better known as Scheurebe) is a grape which was produced in 1916 through Dr. Georg Scheu's crossing of Riesling and an as-yet-unknown variety. The resultant wines are aromatic, tropical, and often slightly herbaceous. Showing mango, guava, and hints of thyme wrapped up in a zesty, vibrant package, this is a favorite for those who like wines with exotic, extroverted aromas. Light, fresh, and relatively low in alcohol, it's consummately friendly and refreshing.

Serving Suggestions: Grilled chicken skewers w/ bell pepper & pineapple. Spicy okra in tomato curry sauce. Baked pork w/ a mango & jalapeño glaze.

2019 Sancerre Blanc (Girard & Fils, Domaine Michel)

Domaine Michel Girard & Fils, Sancerre Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2019

100% Sauvignon Blanc

RICH & RIPE, LIGHT MINERAL, SAVORY HERBAL

Winemaker Philippe Girard says this about his wine, "pungent fresh grassy aromas mingle with riper citrus-style fruits, rounder and fuller in the mouth but nevertheless finishing with a pure intensity and zippiness that you'd expect in classy Sancerre. Sauvignon Blanc at its best!" We couldn't agree more. That light citrus tropical thing he has going on here is due to the blending of four parcels, each with their own qualities. The sum is truly greater than their parts. A wonderful value and very classic in style.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheeses, especially those from the Loire Valley or our domestic versions from Looking Glass Dairy or Prodigal Farm.

2019 Sancerre Blanc (Bardin, Domaine Cedrick)

Cedrick Bardin, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 2019

{sustainable} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

GRAPEFRUIT & SOARING FLINTINESS, DILL & WHITE ASPARAGUS, GOOSEBERRY

Cedric Bardin's tiny estate, which straddles both shores of the Loire river (one foot gently kicking up Poully-Fuisse and the other planted in Sancerre), is a source of some of these regions' most remarkable values. The domaine's two-hectare holdings in Sancerre account for less than 20% of its total production, allowing for an unparalleled focus on quality. Every trademark of classic Sancerre abounds in this wine - Sauvignon Blanc's fiercely bright and citrusy personality, the clearly defined flintiness of the region's terroir, and the sumptuous herbal complexities that we crave from these distinctive whites.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheeses - especially those with bloomy rinds & edible ash. Deep fried softshell crab. Poached egg & asparagus w/ béarnaise sauce.

2015 Sauternes [375ml] (St. Vincent, Chateau)

Chateau St. Vincent, Sauternes [375ml], Bordeaux, France 2015

{organic} 80% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Muscadelle

APRICOT & CLEMENTINE, HONEY, SPICE & WHITE TRUFFLE

Not just any mold, botrytis is a truly noble rot which contributes its fuzzy charm to the exteriors of late-harvested grapes destined for the world's most celebrated dessert wines. Sauternes, a southerly enclave of Bordeaux, is arguably the capital of this unexpected but beautiful phenomenon. The traditional Sémillon, Muscadelle, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are concentrated by the fungus's leeching out of moisture from the grapes (a process which does nothing to endanger the health of the vines) into a decadent, nectary elixir which fermentation transforms into a decadent dessert wine (albeit one which is often not served with dessert).

Serving Suggestion: Often served w/ savory hedonistic fare such as patés & decadent cheeses. Japanese sun-dried persimmons & other sweet, shriveled fruits.

2018 Sauvignon Blanc (Airfield Estates)

Airfield Estates, Sauvignon Blanc, Columbia Valley, Washington State 2018

TANGERINE & MANGOSTEEN, GRAPEFRUIT ZEST, PIÑA COLADA

While Sauvignon Blanc isn’t one of the variety’s that Washington wine lovers would be likely to count out as the states mainstays on five fingers, the hot, dry conditions east of the Cascades yields results similar to those of Napa or warmer mesoclimates in Chilés Valle Central. Constituting a counterpoint to the intensely grapefruit-centric renditions of New Zealand and the variety’s home turf in the Loire Valley, this suavely tropical and mouthwateringly aromatic offering is simultaneously sultry and summery.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled mahi w/ avocado & toasted corn salad. Vietnamese cellophane noodle salad w/ bell peppers, oranges, carrots, basil, & rice vinegar.

Fantastically refreshing & spectacular with food, this is an immediately recognizable example of NZ Sauvignon and a tremendous value that we love to sink our teeth into.

2019 Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon "Reserva Especial" (Calcu, Vinedos)

68% Sauvignon Blanc, 32% Semillon

PINEAPPLE & JUICY CITRUS, RIPE & TROPICAL, VIBRANT & WHOLESOME

Chilean Sauvignon Blanc has increasingly become one of the most sought-after specialties of South America and frequently acts as a counterpoint to the lean, razory offerings associated with New Zealand's Marlborough. These often distinctly more tropical renditions owe their character to a warmer, drier climate. Representing this style very well and reminiscent of the juicy, full-figured Sauvignon Blancs of California (particularly those of Napa Valley), this denizen of the Andes' foothills leaps aromatically from the glass with bold, citrusy bravado.

Serving Suggestions: Mussels w/ garlic, butter, & lemon. Tomato, orange, and cucumber salad w/ scallions, corn, coriander,chives.

2020 Sauvignon Blanc Wairarapa (Paddy Borthwick)

Paddy Borthwick, Sauvignon Blanc, Wairarapa, New Zealand 2020

100% Sauvignon Blanc

CANTALOUPE & MELON. RIPE PASSIONFRUIT. LYCHEE & GOOSEBERRY. FRESH ACIDITY.

Having only 3% of land under vine and contributing only 1% of total production, Wairarapa is home to many of New Zealand’s smaller producers. This is where we find the Paddy Borthwick Estate. In 1985, Paddy, as a way to diversify his family’s legacy of farming (over 75 years!), decided to train as a viticulturist and winemaker. In 1996, after working across the globe perfecting his skills, he and his father began planting what came to be Borthwick Vineyard. This Sauvignon Blanc, with a wonderful balance of acidity and tropicality, is a prime example of what the sub-region of Gladstone has to offer. The alluvial soil found throughout the vineyard allows for smaller, more concentrated grapes, ultimately intensifying their flavor. In the end, a quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc!

Serving Suggestion: Grilled spicy grouper tacos w/ cilantro-lime crema & cotija cheese. Fish & chips. Grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon.

2019 Scheurebe Trocken ''Sonnentau'' (Gysler, Alexander)

Weingut Gysler, Scheurebe Trocken "Sonnentau", Rheinhessen, Germany 2019

{biodynamic} 100% Scheurebe

WHITE PEACH & GRAPEFRUIT, BRIGHT & GENEROUS, ZESTY MINERAL

Scheurebe, perhaps the best known among Riesling’s offspring, is also one of the most distinctive grapes of central Europe. Sharing both Riesling’s beacon-like acidity and its capacity for wines riddled with mineralistic intrigue, Scheurebe also has an almost Sauvignon-esque tinge that helps it stand out resolutely from its parent grape. This beautiful, biodynamic offering from Gysler layers elegance and power in shimmering, utopian waves of vibrant aromas and virile acidity. The cuvée’s name, “Sonnentau,” refers to sundew plants, and the wine, itself, is every bit as etherial and psychedelic in character as the otherworldly carnivorous flowers for which it’s named.

Serving Suggestion: Citrus-glazed ham w/ savory, five-spice smashed sweet potatoes. White tuna sushi w/ avocado & chili-garlic.

A grape with a name meaning "Slavic" grown in a region of Italy where the street signs are in German. What could be simpler? Looking at its pale ruby color, you would be forgiven for thinking that this might be a very dark rosé.

This easy-drinking red from Italy's northern Alto Adige region is equally at home on hot summer nights and frosted winter evenings.

SEMI-DRY SEMI-SPARKLER; DRIED APRICOTS & SPICE

Gather 'round, Greek geeks! This is a traditional semi-sparkling, semi-dry orange wine from Zitsa. Temperate climate and high altitude (up to 4,000 feet) helps preserve acidity - essential for any sparkling wine - in the native Debina grape. Suggestive of sweet dried apricots, a whiff of apple, baking spice, and a sherry-like oxidative quality ... and then along come the light bubbles and acidity to cleanse the palate. Clocking in at only 10.5% alcohol, it's light and refreshing, a great start (or end) to any meal.

Eric Bordelet is a sommelier by training, but with the guidance of his friend/iconic winemaker Didier Dagueneau, he took over the family estate in 1992 with the goal of making ciders comparable to fine wines. With ancient varietal apple trees, Eric picks from 20 different varieties for their sugar level, acid levels and bitterness, then blends the fruits for complex, otherworldly cider. Every apple is hand picked and then left to dehydrate in crates before pressing. This cider is just off-dry and shows fine bubbles in the glass. (About 4% ABV)

Serving Suggestions: As an aperitif before dinner, or with leaf lettuce based salads and brie tart.

{sustainable} 100% Silvaner

FLORAL, CLEAN CITRUS, BRIGHT AND FRESH

Old vine Silvaner is a true rarity in Germany's Rheinhessen. While it remains the second most planted grape (after Riesling) in Germany, it has always been in the shadows. In fact some have even accused it of neutrality. So, Frank Heyden quietly makes this from old vines, and the quality shines so brightly that all shadows disappear in a fresh, zesty, mouth-wateringly delicious wash of Silvaner-ish-ness. Juicy and floral from start to finish, this is a great example of coaxing the best from a grape.

Serving Suggestion: We had this with Frank's mom's carrot soup, smoked trout, and artisanal cold cuts. Everything works with this Silvaner! Very versatile!

Like other great Italian wines, Soave is fighting back against its popularity, a victim of that most sincere form of flattery - imitation. This is the real deal, grown in two of the best vineyard sites in Soave. Rizzardi produces a rich, classic Soave: subtle in its aromas, evocative of yellow pears and crisp green apples, a slice of cantaloupe, a bouquet of spring flowers, and fresh rain. This is a Soave to take back its good name from the bottom shelf of the grocery store, climb to the top of the Castle of Soave (yes, it's a real place, and it overlooks these vineyards): Ricco Soave!

Soppressata "Hot" 1/2 Chub (San Guiseppe Salami Co.)

Giacomo's Salumi - Soppresseta "Spicy" 1/2 Chub

Giacomo crafts this soppressata like the sweet version but with a hit of cayenne and red pepper for a taste that’s spicy but not overpowering. This salami is made the traditional way—by hand. Coarsely chopped meat is seasoned with garlic, wine, and fresh herbs for an old-world taste only artist Giacomo himself could create.

Care instructions for your artisan salami:

1) Once you open the plastic wrapper, never put the salami back in any type of plastic wrapper or it will mold.

2) Only peel back the casing as far as you plan on eating in one day. When you are ready to serve again, cut off a slice of the dry end that was exposed.

3) This is a coarse grind salami, so we recommend slicing it as thinly as possible with a very sharp knife. Translucently thin if possible!

4) Do not refrigerate the salami after opening it. It is cured, and will dry naturally in the open air. We recommend hanging it above your sink as it releases a small amount of natural pork grease.

5) As the salami ages, it will become more firm and flavorful in an old world style. Enjoy!!

2020 Spatburgunder Rosé "Funkenflug" (Gysler, Alexander)

Alexander Gysler, Spatburgunder Rosé "Funkenflug", Rheinhessen, Germany 2020

{biodynamic} 100% Pinot Noir (Spatburgunder)

BLACK CHERRY & LINGONBERRY, LUSH & FRESH, GENTLE & LINGERING

Gysler’s affinity for assertive ripeness suits this rich rendition of Pinot Noir (in rosé form) to a T. Utilizing the grape’s German nom de guerre, Spätburgunder (referencing the grape’s Burgundian origins and late-ripening proclivities), the estate does tremendous work with the variety. Mouth caressingly juicy and bursting with intensely red aromas, this is the sort of rosé that, while plenty refreshing in warmer months, continues to be seductive throughout the year – especially as a companion for fall and winter feasts.

Serving Suggestion: Beet, lentil, & grape tomato salad w/ grilled salmon on a bed of arugula w/ balsamic vinaigrette & fresh cracked pepper. Dressing cakes w/ chestnuts, cranberries, sage, & smoked carrot shavings.

2018 Spatburgunder Rosé Pet Nat Trocken ''Pure'' (Gysler, Alexander)

Alexander Gysler, Spatburgunder Rosé Pet Nat Trocken "Pure", Rheinhessen, Germany

{biodynamic} 100% Pinot Noir (no added sulfites)

WHOLE STRAWBERRIES IN CHAMPAGNE, HAZY, JUICY YET CRISP

Pét-Nats, made via the méthode ancestrale (the old school way of making bubbly where the wine finishes fermenting in bottle), are natural, rustic, and cloudy with a fun fizziness and often a touch of sweetness. In this example of the artisanal method, Gysler’s highest standard of quality brings us a surprisingly sophisticated result. Vivacious bubbles, yeasty aromas, and grapefruit, lemon, and berry flavors that are all bolstered by satisfying body, acidity and minerality. So classy!

Serving Suggestion: Baked salmon in a lemon butter cream sauce. Spinach salad w/ strawberries, goat cheese, & balsamic vinaigrette. Duck confit ravioli.

BOYSENBERRY & CASSIS, VIOLETS & HERBS, LEATHER

From the northern reaches of the vertically sprawling Saint-Joseph appellation, this whole-cluster offering from Emmanuel Barou showcases a fresher, more youthful side of Syrah while retaining an earthy Northern Rhone mystique. Made somewhat in the image of the famous reds of Beaujolais, just on the other side of Lyon, spice, firm fruit, and gentle tannin punctuate this very versatile, food-friendly quaffer. What a candidate to take along for a picnic in the woods with a bucket of fried chicken – don’t skimp on the drumsticks!

RUBY STYLE SUPER CONCENTRATED SYRAH WITH A KICK

Olde Shandon Port Works is a pet project of Tarrica Winery with very tiny production Port style wine out of Paso Robles. The wine is aged in French and American Oak for 32 months before bottling.

Slightly less than half of the 120 acre estate falls within Tavel, a region of rosé royalty. True to form, this is a deeply colored, bold wine brimming with spicy perfume and juicy, mouthfilling fruit. While still refreshing, this pink pleasure also appeals to a desire for richer, more intense flavor.

Tawny, 10 Year (750 ml) (Andresen)

Andresen, 10 Year Tawny, Porto, Portugal

DRIED, CANDIED FRUIT. NUTTY & CARAMELIZED. TOASTED OAK.

When one thinks of Porto, Portugal, they envision the massive Port Houses lining the Douro, as it meanders through the city and into the open waters of the Atlantic. Andresen, which was founded in 1845, has the distinction of being one of the few remaining family-owned estates, continuing to create fine Ports in all styles. This 10 year old Tawny is a fantastic representation of what a Tawny port can be. Aged in older oak casks, the wine showcases robust, nutty aromatics follwed by dried fruit and toastiness on the palate, while presenting the perfect balance of sweetness and maturity. Great as a pre-cursor to a lazy afternoon, an after dinner drink, or with some dessert. Who are we kidding?! Perfect for when life calls for a little decadence and sweetness.

Serving Suggestion: Serra da Estrela (sheep’s milk) cheese & roasted almonds. Crème brûlée w/ a side of baked figs. Apple Pie a la Mode.

2019 Tejo Branco "Encosta do Vale Galego" (Cordeiro, Adega M.)

Adega M. Cordeiro, "Encosta do Vale Galego" Branco, Tejo, Portugal 2019

{sustainable} 45% Fernão Pires, 35% Arinto, 20% Malvasia

SUBTLE LIME, PRETTY WATERMELON, ELEGANT MINERALITY

Making big reds is the passion of João Cordeiro and his father Manuel, but the quality of their vineyard shines in this white cuvée. It's uncommon to find whites with such elegance hailing from a hot spot like Portugal's Rio Tejo but grapes like Arinto and Fernão Pires are natives of this sunny region and perfectly adapted to retain freshness, even in the face of ever-hotter summers. The limestone soil and hilly site of the Cordeiro vineyard are a luxury in this largely flat riverbed region and give this humble white a delicate minerality. Fun fact: One of the world's largest dinosaur footprint sites was found just a few miles from the vineyard.

Serving Suggestion: Salt cod fritters w/ potato, onion, & garlic. Midsummer tomato sandwich: Fat, in-season, local tomatoes, Duke's mayo (don't skimp), sliced radish, & healthy sprinkling of Maldon salt on a Martin's potato roll... maybe get Iberian and work some anchovies in there too.

JUICY FRUIT, VERY FLORAL, TANGERINE, CITRUS

From the southern reaches of Portugal in the recently renamed Tejo region comes this darling summer sipper and poolside companion dubbed "Samora" after the local Samora Correia area.

{sustainable} 70% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), 20% Castelāo, 5% Touriga Nacional, 5% Syrah

BLACK CHERRY, DRIED LAVENDER, RICH & SILKY TEXTURE

Not only is this tiny father-and-son team the latest Wine Authorities Selections exclusive, but this is the first time these wines have ever come to the US! Father Manuel retired from his office job and wanted to return to the vineyard and winemaking life his relatives had grown up with. Now he and son João have revitalized an old vineyard at the foot of the beautiful Serra d'Aire, a 2000 foot tall limestone massif that towers over the flat riverbed of the Tejo. The backbone of this deceptively easy drinker is Tempranillo (which the Portugese call Aragonez or Tinta Roriz) while local specialty Castelão adds freshness, and a dash each of Syrah and Touriga Nacional brings a touch more rich, dark fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Lamb or beef shank stew w/ beans, garlic, & lots of rosemary. Barbecued pork ribs w/ sweet, KC style sauce.

{sustainable} 50% Tempranillo/Aragonez/Tinta Roriz, 38% Syrah, 12% Touriga Nacional

DARK FRUIT, DUSTY TANNIN, SUAVE MATURITY, MISSION FIG AND HAZLENUT

Making its first appearance in the United States at Wine Authorities, Encostas do Vale Galego is the family passion project of Manuel Cordeiro and his son João. Manuel’s parents grew grapes, so when he retired he built a small winery behind the family home and bought a promising vineyard to return to that tradition - on a professional scale this time. This 2012 bottling, one of the family’s earliest vintages, is a great example of why Portugal is known for some of the best under the radar wines in Europe; aged lightly in oak and extensively in bottle before release, this wine reaches an apex of mature complexity rare to find in an everyday red.

Serving Suggestion: Spit-roasted suckling pig w/ all the fixin's (make sure to grab a bite of crispy skin). Slow simmered black beans & rice with garlic, onion, & peppers.

DARK, RICH, SPICY, FULL-FLAVORED, CRUSHED BERRY

From the southern end of Portugal in the newly renamed region of Tejo we have this full flavored, rich red called "Samora" from the Samora Correia area. The estate has just 120 hectares under vine and the grape vines are 20+ years old. All this for so little money- this has got to be one of the best red wine values around. Just three months of barrel aging rounds out the tannins, and gives us a dark, rich red with capable crushed berries just begging to be shared with something from the grill. A Wine Authorities Exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: Burgers off the grill, pork sausages with lots of spice, or meaty textured portabella mushrooms tossed with sun-dried tomato pasta.

2015 Vacqueyras Rouge "Point G" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vacqueyras Rouge "Point G", Rhone Valley, France 2015

{biodynamic} 100% Grenache from old vines

BLACK CHERRY & RASPBERRY, DARK ROAST COFFEE, SUPPLE

The Southern Rhone revolves around Grenache, particularly from old, gnarly vines. The vines in this vineyard are so old they predate the naming of Vacqueyras as an AOC, the the birth of the winemaker, and even the founding of the estate itself! Biodynamically farmed and fermented with ambient yeasts, this cuvée is special for its lush vibrance of ripe red and black fruits as well as a tantalizing warmth of coffee beans and fig. This suppleness is set beautifully against firm tannic structure. Serious enough consider cellaring but packed with enough finesse to be cracked tonight. That’s the point! 

Serving Suggestion: Pan-roasted pork belly w/ spiced red plum, ginger, & rhubarb. Lamb w/ walnut, fig, & goat cheese salad. Cajun portobello sandwich w/ avocado & remoulade.

INKY RASPBERRY & DATE, VIOLETS & CLOVE, PEPPERY

Biodynamic, buxom, and bodaciously boxed, we have here three liters of awe-inspiring Rhone red.

Philippe Bertrand is our hero for fitting a wine this substantial into a three liter box! A Wine Authorities exclusive!

2018 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Veneto, Italy, 2018

65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

BLACK CHERRY & PRUNE, CLOVE, LEATHER & TOASTY OAK

Verona's Valpolicella region is home to several distinct styles including basic Valpolicella, the dried grape version called "Amarone", and the “Ripasso” style featured here (which falls somewhere between) -– all starring the Corvina grape. The technique involved in Ripasso is to first make a regular wine from standard grapes, but in February, dried grapes like the ones used to make Amarone are added to this wine prior to a second fermentation which adds color, depth, and additional flavor to the final wine, resulting something like a super-Valpolicella or fledgling Amarone. Flavors of raisins, cherry, pink peppercorn, and sweet spices prevail. Firm, generous, and full-flavored!

Serving Suggestion: Hearty fare! Strong cheeses like Parmesan or Taleggio. Meaty stews with carrots, prunes, cloves, and potatoes

CURRANT & BLACK CHERRY, PEPPERY & PIQUANT, TOASTED CHESTNUT

Famously utilizing the skins from the partially-dried grapes responsible for the Valpolicella region’s Amarones, the Veronese specialty known as Ripasso comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. This one from the micro-production maestros of Rizzardi is simultaneously lithe and lavish with peppery spice, firm fruit, and a year of aging in French and Savonian oak. An unusually high percentage of the coveted Corvinone grape is also of keen interest!

{organic} 100% Verdicchio

Verdicchio has been cultivated in Marche since at least the 1300’s, and those from the Matelica DOC are know for being more focused, complex, and minerally. If you aren’t familiar with the grape, prepare for an experience!

Herbaceous and succulently citrusy, this “little green one” is a virtuoso with food.

San Gimingano, one of a whopping TWO white wine specialist regions in Italy also famous for towers, is practically the sole provenance of the sternly refreshing Vernaccia grape.

DRIED APRICOTS, FIGS, & CHERRIES; CHESTNUT & VANILLA

Arguably, the finest Tuscan dessert wine is Vin Santo (meaning either “holy wine” or “saint’s wine”), and the rarest of those is Occhio di Pernice. Made with dried Sangiovese grapes, it’s rich, with endless layers of dried fruits and nuts. Sweetness is tempered by light tannins and cleansing brightness, as if the heavens are shining down on you while you sip. It’s the eye of the partridge, it’s the thrill of the wine, rising up to cin cin with the angels.

Serving Suggestion: Rich, creamy cheeses, especially blues! Classic Italian pairing of almond biscotti dunked right in; the bitterness of the almonds balances the sweetness.

2020 Vinhao Superior (Socalcos do Bouro (Corina Maria Pereira Antunes Almeida))

Socalos do Bouro, Vinho Verte Tinto "Autor", Vinho Verde, Portugal 2020

{organic} Vinhão (Souzão)

INKY, SPICY RASPBERRY, DARK BUT FRESH

The Vinho Verde district is internationally beloved for fresh whites, but the locals love their inky reds... so much so that they are rarely exported. These wines are so dark that they're traditionally served not in glassware but in white ceramic bowls, to highlight this color. Don't let your eyes deceive you though, this opaque red is far from heavy. Victor Goncalves selects this reserve bottling from his best Vinhao vines in his tiny, 5ha hillside vineyard in verdant northern Portugal.

Serving suggestion: Victor served this w/ a home-cured leg of wild boar his brother-in-law hunted. Otherwise, a nice charcuterie board w/ sharp cheeses, serrano ham & spicy lomo will suffice.

The remote mountains of Greece’s Ioannina are wild, wooded, and home to, perhaps, some of the most interesting wines and unique varieties you’ve (likely) never encountered. Vlahiko is one such grape, and its reputation as an well-kept secret, virtually invisible to all but a few adventuresome initiatees outside of its sparsely-populated region of origin, is both intriguing and deserved.

Xarel-lo is Cava’s not-so-secret weapon, typically occupying relatively small percentages of the northeastern Spanish sparklers yet infusing them with the lion’s share of their exotic undercurrents. This very special, non-bubbly rendition from Mas Codina showcases the variety’s intrinsic topicality, spice, and power in a full-figured package complete with zesty acidity which engages the brakes before unctuousness is reached. Pronounced "Cheryl-Oh".

Serving suggestion: Escalivada (grilled peppers, eggplant, & tomatoes) w/ anchovies on flatbread w/ aioli.

2017 Zinfandel (Hook & Ladder)

Hook & Ladder, Zinfandel, Russian River, CA, 2017

{sustainable} 100% Zinfandel

JAMMY, BRAMBLY BLUEBERRY/RASPBERRY, CINNAMON TOASTY

Cecil De Loach, along with his wife Christine, was almost singlehandedly responsible for codifying what we now know as sustainable farming in California. Oh, and he accomplished this while working as a firefighter at San Francisco's Hook & Ladder Station 10. In 2003 he sold his eponymous winery but kept his vineyard in the Russian River Valley to focus on stunning small production wines. 90% of this luxurious Zinfandel comes from 100+ year-old vines, and it spends 16 months in American Oak, bestowing a personality as big, bold, gregarious, and patriotic as fireworks on the 4th of July. Light some M80s and fire up the grill.

Serving Suggestion: Steaks or lambsicles, grilled over charcoal. Nothing more complicated than salt and attractive crosshatching.

2018 Zinfandel (Ancient Peaks)

Ancient Peaks, Zinfandel, Paso Robles, CA 2018

[sustainable] 81% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 6% Syrah

RIPE BLACK RASPBERRY, SUMPTUOUS OAK & PEPPER, BRAMBLY COMPLEXITY

This bold red has everything we look for in Zin with all the fat trimmed away, leaving a wine which is still big and powerful but well balanced, solidly structured, and carrying its 15% alcohol impeccably. Terroir including volcanic soil and the calcium-rich remnants of an ancient seabed (as well as a cool, Pacific-influenced mesoclimate) contributes heavily to this wine's finesse and somewhat uncharacteristically sound constitution.

Serving Suggestion: Classic Santa Maria tri-tip cooked low and slow w/ spicy mustard new potato salad (bacon drippings optional). BBQ Tempeh with hearty soul-food sides.

2018 Zweigelt (1 liter) (Paul D.)

Paul D., Zweigelt, Wagram, Austria, 2018

100% Zweigelt

SPICY EARTH, RASPBERRY FRUIT, DELICIOUS

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before me looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintages were brilliant and he's still just 20 years old. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name with none other than Anton Bauer as his mentor. Austria's Zweigelt grape varietal is something like a zin/pinot noir/ montepulciano. Spicy, medium to full-bodied, balanced raspberry fruit but not a drop of oak to be found here. Pure drinkability and a possible house red this summer. It's also 1 liter (33% more than a regular bottle). You are tasting a rising star in Austrian winemaking. Serve cool, with a slight chill.

Serving Suggestion: An essential summer red drinking wine for the beach, picnics, and all kinds of off the grill foods like fish, chicken and burgers.
