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.

Triennes "Sainte Fleur" Viognier 2018

91 Our Score
(8/2019) Made in Provence by Burgundian wine royalty: Aubert de Villaine of Domaine Romanée Conti and Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac, this wine was destined for greatness. Skilled winemaking is immediately apparent with gorgeous aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, white peach and white grape. This beautiful "princess" wine lives up to its lineage with elegance and distinction.

Domaine de Tamary Cotes de Provence Rose 2018

91+ Our Score
(5/2019) Domaine de Tamary is a partnership between the boutique Bordeaux negociant Salin and famed Margaux producer Chateau Malescot St. Exupery. The wines are made by the team at Malescot. One of the more impressive roses we've tried this year, Tamary comes exclusively from estate-owned and farmed fruit, blending 45% Grenache with the rest Cinsault, Syrah and the white grape Rolle, aka Vermentino. It is insanely delicious, with a densely packed mouth presence of fresh red fruit flavors, hints of mint and lavender and a long, tart finish. At $15.99, it is a steal, and comparable to many $20+ roses with fancy bottles. Great pink wine here!

Tenuta Olim Bauda "La Villa" Barbera d'Asti 2017

91 Our Score
(8/2019) Pure and precise, this is one of the most refined Barberas you'll find for the price. The 2017 La Villa offers a robust mouth presence with flavors of ripe cherry and wild raspberry. Medium to full in body, it offers a lovely, juicy quality along with bright and fresh palate-cleansing acidity. Perfect with simple pizza, pasta with red sauce or - better yet - serve it up with your favorite grilled meat dishes.

Xavier Vignon Lirac 2016

A compex, beautifully textured Southern Rhone red from the talented Xavier Vignon!
92 Wine Advocate
(10/31/2017) "One of Vignon's better efforts, the 2016 Lirac showcases ripe fruit, ranging from raspberries and cherries to hints of stone fruit. Yet, it's not over the top or simply fruity. This full-bodied wine adds hints of leather, garrigue and licorice along the way, evolving from creamy to velvety on the palate and through the lasting finish. Drink 2017 - 2025."

Deliciously soft cassis flavors on this full bodied Chilean Cabernet!

92 James Suckling
(4/5/2019) "Some very bright and ripe blackberry and plum aromas here, leading to a supple and silky palate that carries a wealth of deeply fleshy fruit and fine-grained tannins that hold well. Drink or hold."

Mount Nelson Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

90 Our Score
(8/2019) Mount Nelson was created by Ludovico Antinori, founder of Tuscany's Ornellaia. This is classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with just a slight tip of the cap to the old world. Look for ripe citrus and tropical flavors, a hint of snap pea, bell pepper and white stones. Tangy and tasty.

Malabaila di Canale "Pradvaj" Roero Arneis 2016

90 James Suckling
90+ Our Score
(8/2019) This is a delicious dry white from the Roero region of northwest Italy's Piedmont. Drinking like an village level Macon with a leesy, white rock minerality and chalky/grippy front of mouth astringency, it gives pleasurable flavors of stone and orchard fruit along with a mix of white and yellow flowers. A contemplative and pleasure-giving white wine.

Bodegas Bhilar Rioja Blanco 2018

91 Our Score
(8/2019) Biodynamically produced from 90% Viura and 10% Garnacha Blanca, it is fermented in concrete then pressed off and placed in old French oak barrels for six months. The wine is then transferred back to stainless steel tanks where roughly half of the juice goes through malolactic conversion. The resulting wine is beautifully complex, with a golden orange hue and a slightly woodsy, oxidized style that is classic white Rioja. On the palate, this rich, completely dry and creamy wine offers fruit that leans to the citrus and pear side along with a very long finish that combines mineral, citrus and perfect acidity. The food pairings are practically unlimited. We are thinking roast chicken for starters.

Matetic Vineyards "EQ" Casablanca Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

It's been five years since we've worked with this outstanding Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. We are thrilled to have it back, and to be able to sell it for such a great price!
93 Wine Advocate
(10/31/2018) "The just-bottled 2018 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc has a mixture of citrus and herbal aromas. It's from a cool vintage, quite normal for the coastal part of Casablanca, pretty much like 2013, with good yields and no frost or other issues. The palate is tasty and fresh, with great texture, very focused and clean flavors and a salty finish, the signature of the sea and the granite. This is a bargain - and one of their finest harvests. It should develop nicely in bottle. Drink Date 2018 - 2023."
