Honoro Vera "Irreverent Red Blend" Jumilla 2015

A smooth, well-balanced blend of Garnacha, Syrah and Monastrell from the Juan Gil family. Huge bang-for-buck here.
89 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(1/2017) "(Raised in French and American oak barrels for four months) Brilliant ruby-red. Deeppitched aromas of blackberry, cherry liqueur and licorice, plus a slowly building smoky nuance. Warm and broad on the palate, offering plush flavors of ripe cherry and dark berries. Nicely concentrated and broad-shouldered; the black currant note comes back on the round, gently tannic, smoke-tinged finish. Drinking window: 2018 - 2023."

(6/2016) "A particularly fresh and crisp Rueda, this wine's vivid white fruit merges with deep flavors of almonds-it spent more than four months in contact with the lees. Generously ripe, this doesn't lose sight of its acidity, which provides nerve and tension."

Joseph Drouhin Macon-Villages 2014

Looking online we found 24 listings for the 2014 Drouhin. Our special price beats them all!
89 Wine Spectator
88+ Our Score
(6/2015) Drouhin is a large negociant in Burgundy and they've really bottled a tasty Chardonnay with this '14 Macon-Villages. Ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors are supported by a plump mouthfeel and a balanced, medium-acid finish. This is as perfectly for cocktail hour as it is with poultry and grilled fish.

Cairnbrae Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

89 Our Score
(4/2017) While there is an ocean of sub-$13 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc available, it is more difficult to track down bottlings that are not too green, too sweet or too manipulated. Enter the 2016 Cairnbrae, a fresh offering from a long-time Vin Chicago favorite producer. Zesty and bright, it gives flavors of lime, grapefruit and nectarine fruits supported by subtle hints of jalapeno and cut grass. Well balanced and well assembled.

J. Mourat "Collection" Fiefs Vendeens Mareuil Rose 2016

The "Owl" Rose is back in stock!
88-89 Our Score
(4/2017) We've been huge fans of the red and white "Owl" wines from J. Mourat and are thrilled to now also have their Rosé. This dry pink wine - which comes in a very cool bottle - is sourced from western France, just south of Muscadet. Its blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Negrette and Gamay is totally unique. Look for brisk red fruits, taut florals and a wisp of sea-air minerality, as the vineyards are located just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean!

Thomas Henry Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

89 Our Score
(4/2017) Few Cabernets in this price category offer as much complexity as this release from Thomas Henry. Aromas of dried cherry, black currant and tobacco lead to a medium-full body with blackberry and black currant flavors coming through on the palate. Finishes long and clean. This is a real crowd pleaser that drinks like it's twice the price.

90-92 Wine Advocate
(4/29/2015) "The 2014 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres is mostly Grenache, yet includes 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Aged in a combination of concrete tank and demi-muid, it makes the most of this difficult vintage and have terrific purity in its raspberry, violet, licorice and olive-laced aromas and flavors. Ripe, nicely textured and with bright acidity, drink it over the coming 4-5 years."

Highly perfumed dark berry, vanilla and violet scents are complemented by hints of licorice and oak spices. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering blackberry and blueberry flavors that are lifted and given spine by juicy acidity.

Juicy red berries with lots of vanilla and pipe tobacco aromatics from 12 months in American oak.
90 Our Score
90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(11/2015) "Dark ruby. Oak-accented red berry liqueur and cherry aromas pick up smoke, tobacco and vanilla elements with aeration. Pliant and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and coconut flavors sharpened by a jolt of cracked pepper. Closes smooth, broad and very long, with an echo of vanilla and velvety, deftly integrated tannins. After fermentation in concrete tanks this wine was aged in a combination of new and used American oak for 12 months."

Montalbera "Cuvee Rose" Brut NV

89 Our Score
(4/2017) We were very excited to discover that one of our favorite producers for "off the beaten path" varietals in Piedmont made a sparkling wine. Grignolino usually makes for a wonderfully light and easy drinking red, but this dry sparkling rose bottling is loads of fun! Fresh watermelon, cherry blossoms and subtle hints of fennel seed make for a unique, lighter bodied bubbly that is perfect for brunch, lunch or all on its own!

Bengoetxe Getariako Txakolina 2015

It's been a while since we've featured a Txakolina from Spain's Basque country, and this one rocks!
90 Our Score
(4/2017) Founded in 2001, the Bengoetxe vineyards were farmed organically from day one. In 2007 they became the first winery in the region to achieve organic certification. The family takes great pride in producing only this one bottling. Fermentation takes place in small vats (in their garage) using only wild yeasts. The wine spends a year on its lees with no stirring, and they do not inject additional CO2. The result is a bright and zesty white with more roundness and less spritz then is common for wines of the region. It's like a cross between a dry German Riesling and a Loire Valley Muscadet, perfect for seafood and wonderfully refreshing to drink on its own!

90 Our Score
(4/2017) This single-vineyard Chardonnay from Butch Milbrandt offers pretty aromas of pear, butter and butterscotch upfront with bright apple flavors joining in on the palate. Creamy in the mouth with a lip-smacking finish that lasts for minutes. Wonderful balance of oak and fruit. The winery sells this for $22. We made a special buy and, at $15.99, this is one heck of a Chardonnay!

Ghiomo "Lavai" Barbera d'Alba 2014

91 Our Score
(4/2017) The latest vintage of Ghiomo's "Lavai" Barbera d'Alba comes with a fresh new look, now being bottled in the classic "Albeisa" bottle which has been the signature bottle of Alba since the 18th century. More importantly, the wine inside is still the same great quality as when we first featured the 2006 vintage of this Vin Chicago favorite. The 2014 shows more upfront fruit and softness than in previous years, perhaps a signature of the vintage. Look for wild cherries, strawberries and a hint of black berry, along with subtle spices, herbs and earth. Vibrant acidity keeps things lively and makes for a wonderful pairing at the kitchen table.

Field Recordings "Fiction" Paso Robles Red 2015

91 Our Score
(4/2017) Without a doubt, this is the most absolutely delicious edition of Fiction yet! A blend of 48% Zinfandel, 15% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, 8% Graciano and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Touriga Nacional and Carignan, the 2015 Fiction perfectly balances sweet fruit ripeness with excellent tension and superb mouth feel. Comparable in quality to most good $25 blends, this wine gets better every year. Equally delightful to drink on its own or with food, it is one of the best red blend values produced in all of California.

Domaine Francis Blanchet "Vieilles Vignes" Pouilly Fume 2015

(4/2017) Pouilly-Fumé sits just across the Loire River from the more famous zone of Sancerre. Here, the distinct silex soils give a characteristic smoky-flint (read: Fumé) quality to the otherwise nervy Sauvignon Blancs. Blanchet delivers an excellent value with this 2015 release, offering a richly textured, palate-coating Sauvignon of pure lemon and lime citrus goodness. Perfect by itself or with lighter fare.

Dry Creek Vineyard "Hillside and Benchlands" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

91 Wine Advocate
(3/3/2016) "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside and Benchland Vineyards (aged 19 months in French oak) is a beauty. This serious Cabernet Sauvignon showcases just how good Cabernet can be from Dry Creek, although most readers would agree it is better known for Zinfandel. Dense ruby/purple, loads of black cherry, blackcurrant and dusty/loamy soil notes are present in this medium to full-bodied, concentrated and powerful wine. Alcohol is listed at 14.5%, but it may possibly be slightly higher. This is a blockbuster, full-bodied, impressively endowed Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20-25 years."

At $19.99, this "virile, ripe" 92-point Vino Nobile is a screaming value.
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(10/2016) "The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most virile, ripe 2013 Vino Nobiles I tasted. A host of black cherry, smoke, tobacco, earthiness and licorice notes give the 2013 its distinctive baritone feel. That intensity comes through in the wine deep, intense palate feel. The 2013 is a serious Vino Nobile that needs to be paired with similarly hearty foods. Drinking window: 2017 - 2025."

Tua Rita "Perlato del Bosco" Toscana Rosso 2013

93 Wine Advocate
(1/31/2017) "The 2013 Perlato del Bosco is a pure Sangiovese from a vineyard located just beyond the property's main house. This is Tua Rita's biggest seller when it comes to the USA market and with good reason. It shows a unique identity with bright berry nuances backed by tangy spice, candied orange peel and blue flower. I'm also told that this is the most difficult wine to make. Sangiovese is a difficult grape to manage and special root stocks (33-19) were selected to delay ripening in order to produce smaller and more flavorful clusters. This in itself is a risky proposition because the chances of bad weather increase the longer you wait before harvest. The wine sees eight months in neutral barrique. The bouquet shows a floral component with rose petal and lavender. In the mouth, it offers amazing potential and fullness. This is an amazing value-buy. Drink Date 2017 - 2028."

Yamhill Valley Vineyards "Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

92+ Our Score
(4/2017) If you are one of the many who has enjoyed Yamhill Valley Vineyard's 2014 "Estate" Pinot Noir then you will flip out over this just-released "Reserve" bottling. As far as flavor and intensity, everything gets taken up a few notches. Matured for 16 months in French oak (compared to eight months for the Estate) the first impression that jumps from the glass is a wood-driven layer of spice. After that, it is beautiful aromas of black cherry and blueberry followed by a mushroomy, earthy note and a touch of herbs. It gets even better on the palate, with dark berry fruit enveloping the tongue. The finish is long, satisfying and grippy. This is still just a baby, so make sure to allow some breathing time!

Single-vineyard Barolo Riserva for $35? Yep, and it is outstanding!
93-94 Our Score
(4/2017) The Rocche dell'Annunziata vineyard is one of Barolo's most prized vineyards and this 2010 Riserva is from one of the all-time great Barolo vintages. The nose is quite complex with a very floral violet and rose petal aroma along with red berries, licorice and forest floor. Very rich on the palate with gripping tannins that slowly melt away to a silky, velvet-like mouthfeel. Give it some time in the cellar and you will be well rewarded.

Chateau La Peyre "R" Saint Estephe Rouge 2010

We're down to our last ten cases of this classic, under-the-radar, Neal Rosenthal-imported beauty!
94 Our Score
(10/2016) The wine is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. While it sees a small percentage of new oak, most of the juice is raised in older barrels - in keeping with the estate's traditional philosophy of limited human intervention during the winemaking process. Classic Bordeaux flavors of cassis, blackberry and plum are supported by subtle red floral nuances along with black pepper, rosemary, tobacco and cedar. The complexity of flavor and integration of tannin and structure are top flight here. Neighboring properties, like the 100-point, Super-Second Chateau Montrose, sell for well over $200 this vintage!

Tenuta Degli Sforza "Marchesano" Colli d'Imola Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva 2011

This Cabernet Sauvignon made our jaws drop. Cab lovers, do not miss.
94 Our Score
(4/2017) This is as good of a $50 Cabernet Sauvignon as you will ever find. Interestingly, it's not from Napa Valley but from a very small, eccentric producer in Emilia Romagna. The hand-picked grapes, some of which were allowed to dry by over-ripening on the vine, were vinified and then aged for 24 months in small, fine oak and another year in bottle before release. The resulting wine has an incredible nose that is intense, complex and loaded with wood spice, leather and dark berry aromas. The palate is oozing with dark berries, oak and spice with gripping tannins that smooth out nicely on the oh-so-long finish. Complex and layered with serious depth of flavor, this outstanding Cabernet is done just the way we like 'em at Vin Chicago.

The 2013 is a distinctly mid-weight Tenuta with bright acidity and considerable overall tension. I can't wait to see how the 2013 develops in bottle, as it has quite a bit of energy lying in reserve. Drink 2018 - 2033."

Phillip Togni Spring Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

94+ Wine Advocate
97 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(10/2016) "Togni's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is quite dark and powerful, but also very much medium in body. Graphite, smoke, savory herbs, mint, leather and a core of inky dark red and purplish fruit infuse this deep, beautifully layered Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 is a wine built on energy and aromatics that won't hit its stride until at least age ten. Drinking window: 2024 - 2039."
