A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Swartland Chenin Blanc 2018

90+ Our Score
94 Wine & Spirits
(2/2019) "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst's entry-level chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day's fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to mango, wildflower honey and tangerine. It feels all of a piece, bright acidity holding the flavors taut and firm, a large-boned chenin fit for a crown roast of pork. All that for $16."

Cantina Sociale Cooperativa Copertino Riserva 2010

90 Decanter World Wine Awards
91 Our Score
(5/2019) This perfectly aged Vin Chicago favorite is back! Complex layers of leather, tobacco, macerated cherry, earth, root beer, cinnamon and dried herbs belie the low price. Always food friendly, it is just begging for charcuterie, barbecue or stew!

Carchelo "C" Jumilla 2016

91 Our Score
(5/2019) Rich and round on the palate with a velvety finish, the 2016 Carchelo "C" is an over-delivering blend of 35% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah. Each varietal was vinified separately, then blended together and aged for four months in French oak. Offering an intense perfume of dark berries and earth along with good complexity and great balance of berry, oak, mineral and acidity, this drinks like a $20+ bottle.

Chateau Saint-Roch "Chimeres" Cotes du Roussillon Villages Rouge 2015

93 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "Giving up jammy notes of black raspberries, licorice, smoked herbs and chocolate, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Chimeres (aged in demi-muid and concrete vates) needs to be snatched up by savvy readers. Full-bodied, deep and layered with incredible texture, I actually called this a mini SQN. I would gladly pay three to four times the going rate. Bravo! Drink Date 2017 - 2022."

Domaine Labbe Abymes Vin de Savoie 2018

89+ Our Score
(5/2019) This wine simply screams for a warm day on the patio! The Savoie region of eastern France sits right on the Swiss border. It is better known for skiing and cheese than it is for wine, but that should not be the case, as the wines here are fun and tasty as well as dense and impressive. This crisply textured, bone dry bottling comes from Abymes and is made entirely from the Jacquere grape. While only 11% ABV, the wine feels weighty and presents salted, mineral-laden apple and lemon flavors along with a long finish that expands with oxygen. A very cool white that packs more than the first few sips suggest.

Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2016

90 Our Score
(5/2019) From the absolutely stellar 2016 harvest, this blend of 62% Grenache, 24% Syrah, 6% Carignan, 4% Mourvedre and 4% Cinsault was fermented and aged in cement, using only wild yeasts. It is classic in style, with deep red fruit and black pepper flavors along with a hint of herbs and a wild game note. Traditional, delicious and a delight to drink either by itself or with food.

Wine Spectator
(10/31/2018) "Spring blossom and citrus notes are a fresh and appealing entry to this lightly fleshy and balanced, light-bodied white, leading to flavors of nectarine and wet stone, with hints of pastry cream and lemon curd on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 833 cases made."

La Posta "Estela Armando" Mendoza Bonarda 2017

90 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(7/2018) "Dark red-ruby. Inviting high-pitched aromas of blackberry, dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Densely packed, fine-grained and sweet; a fresh, firm fruit bomb of a Bonarda with just a bit of the variety's leathery funk leavened by a violet topnote. From vines that are more than 80 years of age. Finishes with sneaky rising length and firm, smooth tannins. A stunning value."
