*2016 Dal Maso Cabernet, Colli Berici, Veneto, Italy - (Cabernet Sauvignon 50% /Cabernet Franc 50%)-  From Lonigo and Alonte, in the very heart of Colli Berici DOC area this is a straightforward, approachable Cabernet blend with aromas of red fruits and spice, a full mouth feel and pleasant softer tannins. No food required to enjoy this wine.
*2016 Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio, Friuli, Italy - One of our bestselling wines, this is a slightly fuller bodied wine with aromas of pears, bananas, apples, apricots, acacia and notes of almonds. Unoaked with a richer mouthfeel, the wine has great balance and acidity. Perfect for roast chicken.
*2015 Chateau Moulinat Rouge, Bordeaux, France - Medium dark garnet color. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, espresso, and tobacco with a medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length, blackberry, baking spice, and burnt sugar finish with well-integrated tannins and light oak. A rich and delicious wine. (PACKED IN A WOOD CASE)
*2016 Guindon Muscadet Coteaux de la Loire, France - (100% Melon de Bourgogne) A perfect wine with seafood, especially oysters. It has notes of lime and citrus with a certain richness from time on the lees (“Sur Lie”) which is offset by the crisp, salty finish.
2014 Parxet Cava Brut “Cuvee 21”, Alella, Spain - A blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Pansa Blanca grapes grown in certified organic vineyards near the town of Alella, just outside Barcelona, Spain. “Mellow yeasty apple aromas suggest good things to come. This feels full, easygoing and good. Toasty apple and spice notes control the flavor profile, while this finishes with an overall sense of completeness.” (WE 2/17)
2014 Stephen Vincent Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, California - Aromas of blackberry, strawberry preserves and baking spice aromas with generous fruit and a touch of toffee on the palate. Soft tannins make this balanced wine very accessible. A great, affordable Sonoma County Pinot Noir.
2014 Rimbert AOC Saint-Chinian “Les Travers de Marceau”, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - (30% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah, 25% Carignan, 15% Cinsault) Organically farmed from the tiny backcountry AOC of St Chinian this is a medium bodied, funky Rhone blend with saddle leather, red berry, blueberries & notes of crushed stone. A supple palate with black fruit flavors finishes with silken minerality & a deft touch of acidity.
2015 Lar de Paula Blanco, Rioja, Spain - A blend of mostly Viura and some Malvasia from vineyards in Rioja Alavesa, the home of great white Rioja; barrel fermented and conditioned in oak for 90 days. Aromas of white flowers, smoky herbs and white fruit with nuances of oak. Fresh and rich with balanced acidity. A modern style somewhat reminiscent of California chardonnay.
