Wine Notes


A NOTE ABOUT OUR CASE OF THE MONTH:  - Our case of the month is an excellent way to get real value for your wine dollar and drink wines from around the world, carefully selected by J. Emerson staff.  No need to join an Internet wine club with their mystery wines and made up labels – Our case is infinitely more interesting and a better value! The discounted price of the FEBRUARY case-of-the-month is $109.99; the regular price would be $157, a savings of almost 30%! (Are we crazy or what??)
Here is the line-up and as always, there are 2 each of the first four wines (*) and 1 each of the last four wines.
*2013 Andrea Fossi Rosso “R”, Puglia, Italy - A blend of Sangiovese, Negroamaro and Primitivo from the heel of Italy.  This dry, smooth blend has classic plum and red berries notes. Fresh, bright and gulpable, it is the perfect pizza wine, with an elegance that belies its Puglia roots.
*2017 Volpetti Frascati, Lazio, Italy - A dry, delicate white with orange peel, figs and floral notes. Well balanced with good acidity and minerality on a clean finish. Perfect as an aperitif or with soups, seafood and poultry.
*2017 Bodegas Volver “Tarima” Monastrell, Alicante, Spain - A tremendous value from Spain, this 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre) is big, juicy and richly textured. Palate popping flavors of blackberry, plum, blood orange, dark pit fruits and peppery impressions lie behind this generous fuller-bodied red wine with a lively lingering finish.
*2017 Domaine du Chapitre Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, Loire, France – Down the river from Sancerre, Touraine produces value driven Sauvignon Blanc. Guava and citrus flavors characterize this aromatic, crisp dry white wine that finishes with Loire valley minerality.
2017 Domaine de Cabane Cotes du Rhone, Rhone, France – (75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre.)
A very good Côtes du Rhône offering lovely floral and garrigue aromatics with a full and fleshy mouth of licorice and red fruit. With a supple and round texture, this wine is really easy to pair with a multitude of dishes, but especially duck confit.
2017 Cenatiempo Ischia Bianco “Gran Tifeo”, Campania, Italy - Mostly if not all Falanghina. Intense ripe citrus and orchard fruit aromas with savory, herbaceous apple and pear fruit flavors behind a saline finish with pronounced minerality.
2017 Arman Ribeiro Blanco “Eira Dos Mouros”, Galicia, Spain – (100% Treixadura) A medium bodied fresh, unctuous and structured brisk, dry white wine with notes of white flowers, fennel, balsamic and spring water meshing with melon and white pit fruits; finishing with perfectly integrated acidity.
2017 Dom. Deliance Bourgogne Rouge, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy France- A really nice value, in a stylish, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, from an excellent farmers vintage (Ripe fruit and plenty of it!)  Pretty aromas of dark raspberry and black cherry fruit with light fruit blossom overtones lead to an elegant, pure, palate of raspberry and red cherry fruit and a just right touch of earth. Just enough tannin on the smooth finish to provide shape and support.
