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 JANUARY case-of-the-month is $104.99; the regular price would be $150, 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.

*2016 Grilos Branco, Dao, Portugal - “This attractive blend showcases Encruzado and Cerceal. A perfumed wine, it offers a light honeyed character as well as clean green fruits and citrus acidity. The wine is ready to drink.” (WE 10/17 BEST BUY)
*2016 DeAngelis Falerio Bianco, Le Marche, Italy - A blend of Passerina, Pecorino and Trebbiano. Aromas of pear, peach and lime with salty seaside notes in the background. A riper style with peaches, apples, pears, nectarines and a big spritz of green lemon and lime on the finish. Pair with all sorts of seafood.
*2016 Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rouge, Pays d’Herault, France – (40% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Carignan) Mas de Daumas Gassac has consistently been the Languedoc gold standard for over 30 years. The organically-farmed estate enjoys a temperate microclimate as a result of altitude, which gives the wines a lovely deftness of touch. An easy drinking, French bistro Syrah-blend, with a slightly, earthy nose of black fruit & herbs and a fresh, supple palate of baked blackberry pie, nutmeg & cedar.
*2015 San Vito Chianti, Tuscany, Italy -“Made entirely from organically grown Sangiovese, this opens with earthy red berry, underbrush and tilled soil aromas. The palate is lively and filigreed with smooth tannins, delivering fresh raspberry, cinnamon and clove flavors. Enjoy soon.” (WE4/17 BEST BUY)
2016 Yalumba Viognier “Y Series”, South Australia –“Vividly floral, with peach blossom aromas & a juicy core of stone fruit & melon flavors. Tangy on the finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases imported.” (WS web ‘18)
2016 Netzl Gruner Veltliner, Carnutum, Austria –“Grapefruit spiciness and a touch of yeast show on the nose of this wine. The palate revolves around zesty grapefruit flavors, its concentration and juiciness leading to a tingling, refreshing finish that’s wonderfully clean.” (WE 7/17)
2015 Casal de Arman Ribeiro Tinto “Eira dos Mouros”, Galicia, Sp. - Here is something a bit different. A blend of Brencellao, Caiño and Sousón grape varieties from 20 hectares of vines planted in steep terraces along the winding banks of the Miño River in the Ribeiro do Avia region in Spain’s northwestern Galicia province. This is a medium bodied red with plenty of fresh, stone fruit aromas. There are balsamic notes, a touch of smoke and dry stone with supple tannins on the fresh finish.
2015 Casa Silva Carmenere, Valle del Colchagua, Chile –“Sixty percent of the volume of the 2015 Cuvée Colchagua Carmenere matured in oak barrels while the rest was kept in stainless steel. The wine blends Carmenere grapes from Los Lingues in the Andes part and Lolol in the Costa. It has a straight nose of black fruit, some herbal undertones and roasted notes. The palate is medium-bodied, with good freshness and acidity, ending slightly bitter. A straight Carmenere.’ (WA #230)
