Morgan "Metallico" Monterey Unoaked Chardonnay 2017

90 Our Score
91 Wine Enthusiast
(4/1/2019) "The unoaked character of this wine does push it toward a Sauvignon Blanc style, but it works well in this vintage. Aromas of wet stone, grass, lemon blossom and honeysuckle lead into a chalky palate of lime balm, lanolin and a hint of sour cream."

Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol Rouge 2015

90+ Our Score
(8/2019) Château de La Noblesse is a very traditional boutique Provence estate run by 5th generation vigneron Agnes Cade. Their 2015 Bandol Rouge blends 95% Mourvedre with 5% Grenache. It is deliciously classic in style, with big tannins, dark flavors, earth and balancing acidity. This beauty is normally priced around $25. We're blowing it out for nearly 30% less. Considering how expensive Bandol has become, this rustic southern French gem is a real value. Drinkable now through 2025.

Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol Rose 2017

A delicious Pink Provence assemblage of 50% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsault. Substantially less expensive than most Bandol Rose!

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(8/2018) "Light, vivid orange. Pungent, mineral-accented blood orange and red berry scents, with a subtle floral note in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering raspberry and lavender flavors that are braced by a refreshingly bitter citrus pith note. Shows very good clarity and persistence on the finish, which leaves a dusty mineral note behind. Drinking window: 2019 - 2021."

Villa Russiz Collio Pinot Grigio 2017

90+ Our Score
(8/2019) Sourced from vines up to sixty-years old in the Collio zone of Italy's Friuli, this rich and dense Pinot Grigio gives plenty of zest along with a full range of citrus, orchard and stone fruit flavors. More concentration and complexity than your average Pinot Grigio!

Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvee" Sonoma County Red 2017

90 Our Score
(8/2019) Gundlach Bundschu has whipped up this tasty blend utilizing all five Bordeaux varietals. It's 74% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petite Verdot and 5% Malbec. The key word here is softness. You get mouth-filling, ripe dark berry flavors with a tad of dusty earth. Soft, smooth and completely approachable as soon as you pull the cork, it is the perfect cocktail red for sub-$20.

Villa Medoro "Terre di Chieti" Pecorino 2017

We love this wine and Itlay's Gambero Rosso does too, awarding it the prestigious "Tre Bicchieri" award!
91+ Our Score
(8/2019) This white is bonkers yummy! A range of fruit flavors including expressive peach, guava and deep citrus precede a seriously salty minerality in the core, a concentrated mouthfeel and a high energy finish. The Pecorino grape is a white wine nerd's dream come true. Sancerre fans will love it too, especially with late summer Caprese salads. Delicious!

Poggerino "Aurora" Toscana Rosato 2018

90 Our Score
(8/2019) From an organically farmed Chianti Classico estate in the subdistrict of Radda comes this lovely 100% Sangiovese Rosato. Fruit from 15-to-25 year old vines is handpicked in two specific sweeps of the vineyard nearly a month apart to provide a dynamic experience offering both intensity and finesse. The wine delivers exciting floral-accented notes full of cherry blossom, chalk, raspberry and a touch of playful yeast. The palate is a tangy affair offering electric sweet and sour acidity, featuring more red fruit notes than your average rose and a rather long mineral-tinged palate that finishes crystal clean.

Lagar de Cervera Rias Baixas Albarino 2018

A zesty, incisive Albariño from the owners of La Rioja Alta!
92 James Suckling
(7/26/2019) "So many flowers here, including honeysuckle, daffodils, almonds and cherry blossom. The palate has a really expansive, fleshy feel for this variety, without the addition of oak, but the acidity is still forthright and still right on point. Drink now."

Domaine Jean Masson "Vieilles Vignes" Apremont Vin de Savoie 2018

91+ Our Score
(8/2019) A 10th generation vigneron, Jean-Clause Masson crafts this alpine white from very old Jacquere vines located in a cool, high elevation vineyard with large diurnal shifts. This overachiever offers a weightier mouthfeel than you would imagine given its mountainous origin and refreshingly mild 12% ABV. With a yeasty, textural intensity owed to sur-lie aging techniques, there is a huge payoff here for fans of mineral-driven wines like Muscadet, Chablis, Assyrtiko or Etna Bianco. Ethereal in nature, it offers precise notes of crisp apple, quince, white florals and salinity, all complemented by a tropical twist of banana skin. Finishing long and clean, this is an old-world delight!

King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2017

91 Our Score
(8/2019) King Estate is a pioneer in bringing domestic Pinot Gris to the national stage. This bottling is sourced predominantly from estate-owned organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards. Wonderfully easy to like, it sings out with honeyed yellow apple, pear, honeysuckle and just enough balancing ripe citrus acidity. Extremely generous and expressive, you'll be impressed how well it works as an aperitif or tames mildly-spiced Indian cuisine. Twist and go!
