  1. Atalier by Raul Perez "A Cruz das Animas" Rias Baixas Albarino 2018

    Atalier by Raul Perez "A Cruz das Animas" Rias Baixas Albarino 2018

    Extremely exciting new project from Raul Perez, making Albariño in a traditional manner. The vines have been farmed by the same family since the mid-nineteenth century, giving the wine an extra intensity and concentration. The grapes are picked later than most to soften the acidity, meaning MLF isn’t needed. The wine is then aged in old oak foudres for extra weight and texture. A serious Albariño which may cause you to rethink your perceptions of the grape. Learn More
  2. Operation Dragoon Cotes du Rhone 2016

    Operation Dragoon Cotes du Rhone 2016

    70% Grenache, 30% Syrah. This wine by famed Rhone Vigneron Pierre Gaillard is in honor of the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Southern France in August 1944, which liberated the area from Marseille to Dijon in just 4 weeks. Get fresh wild strawberries and herbs de Provence with a hint of smoked meat and lavender on the finish. Fine tannins and bright acid. A very clean expression of the Rhone Valley. Learn More
  3. Jeff Cohn "The Imposter" California 2015

    Jeff Cohn "The Imposter" California 2015

    A very eclectic and unique blend of 44% Zinfandel, 22% Petite Sirah, 14% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 5% Carignan, 2% Mourvèdre, and 1% Viognier for a big, intense, dark wine with lots of fruity aromas – strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, and plum – as well as chocolate, black peper, licorice, and sage. Extremely tasty. Learn More
  4. Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra White Rorick 2016

    Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra White Rorick 2016

    This is an unusual Sierra Foothills blend of Piquepoul, Verdelho, Chardonnay, and Albariño. They come together for a fresh, nervy, delicate style that’s filled out with some creamy richness, citrus aromas of lime and lemon zest, and a lightly spicy mouthfeel of white pepper and ginger. So much acidity coming from the Piquepoul and Albariño, giving the palate a real zing. Perfect accompaniment to fish or seafood. Learn More
  5. Old Westminster Albarino Pet Nat 2018

    Old Westminster Albarino Pet Nat 2018

    We have a vague ambition to have every state represented here at Back Room. This is our first selection from Maryland, proof that the quality of winemaking across the US is rising. The cool yet humid climate provides ideal conditions for sparkling wine production, resulting in crisp, fresh acidity that gives the wine a drying finish after the fruity golden delicious aromas slowly fade. A Pét-Nat well worth checking out. Learn More
  6. Cruse Wine Co Monkey Jacket 2018

    Cruse Wine Co Monkey Jacket 2018

    51% Valdiguié from across Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Suisun, plus Carignan, Syrah, and a North Coast field blend. 20% of the blend was fermented whole cluster for aromas of bright raspberry tart, sweet summer flowers, and wild bramble followed on the palate by fresh acidity, crunchy fruit, and simple, cleansing tannins. Light and very approachable. Learn More
  7. Regueiro Alvarinho/Trajadura Vinho Verde 2018

    Regueiro Alvarinho/Trajadura Vinho Verde 2018

    Coming from Minho, one of the higher quality Vinho Verde areas, this is a blend of 70% Alvarinho and 30% Trajadura – two grapes which add more alcohol and weight than is usually found in entry-level Vinho Verde. This is an extremely pretty wine with aromas of lemon blossom, jasmine, pear, and peach followed by vibrant, refreshing acidity and a lightly gripping palate. Perfect summer wine and a steal at this price. Learn More
  8. Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    $100.00 (NET)
    Lionel Faury is the son of Phillipe, continuing his father’s tradition of making wines that express the purity of the fruit rather than the character of oak. This comes from one Côte Rôtie vineyard called Fourvier which is dominated by schist soils. Fermentation sees retention of 20% stems and then the wine is aged for 15 months in large oak barrels. It’s ripe and really concentrated, with aromas of blackberry and wild flowers and a firm tannic structure. Drink now-2030. Learn More
  9. Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Location is key to quality in St-Joseph. Lionel Faury’s domaine is in the northern part of the long appellation and the vines are on steep south-facing slopes on the estate. 70% destemming leads to an integrated stalky character, along with meat, bacon, licorice, black pepper, sage, and blackberry aromas. On the palate, it’s chewy and grippy with a long, structured finish and very well-integrated oak (10% new). St-Joseph at its finest. Learn More
  10. Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    From the son of acclaimed producer Alain Graillot, Maxime. All the fruit (from 35-year-old vines) is destemmed, spending one year in old oak with a touch of new. This is an appealing, pretty, fruit-forward Crozes with aromas of violets, plump blackberry, plum, licorice, and chocolate followed by a tighter palate with grainy tannins and high acidity. An accomplished, balanced, and restrained wine. Learn More
