    Gerovassiliou Malagousia Greece 2017

    This is 100% Malagousia, which was essentially saved from extinction by Vangelis Gerovassiliou. This is somehwat of weighty white grape with a portion only being vinified in stainless and a portion seeing French. Months of lees contact gives this a straw color with aromas of pear, mango, jasmine and earthy tomato leaf. The finish is accentuated by its salty volcanic minerality, lemon peel and hints of nutty notes from the wine making. Learn More
  2. Chateau de Fontenille Bordeaux 2016

    Chateau de Fontenille Bordeaux 2016

    This is the type of wine that you can buy a few cases of and forget about it in the cellar for ten years. At this price there is just so much potential to develop into a wine that should cost twice the price. Big, bold and herbal with Eucalyptus and mint. Aromas of a wet pile of leaves, leather, chocolate fruit and nut bar and some savory pipe tobacco. Great balance of tannins and shows even better on day two. Textbook Bordeaux. Learn More
  3. Opus One Napa Valley Red Wine 2016

    Opus One Napa Valley Red Wine 2016

    $375.00 (NET)
    “The 2016 Opus One has turned out beautifully. The 2016 most closely resembles the 2014, although it has more mid-palate sweetness and overall depth, along with a slightly darker profile. I expect the 2016 will enjoy a long drinking window that will start to open relatively soon. Of the last four vintages, the 2016 is certainly the most open-knit in the early going. The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. 96+ (AG) “ Learn More

  5. Grand Enclos du Chateau de Cerons Graves Rouge 2015

    Grand Enclos du Chateau de Cerons Graves Rouge 2015

    A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot give the Château de Cérons all the stuffing needed to make a wine that over-delivers for its price. The winery utilizes a gravity fed system for minimal intervention. This shows fig, blackberry, plum, light cigar and a kiss of oak barrel. Medium to full- bodied with classic, dry, minerally bordeaux nuances. Older Châteaux in the region of Graves can rival the quality of Bordeaux at a fraction of the price, and this is no exception.

  6. Hourglass "HGIII" Napa Valley Red Wine 2017

    Hourglass "HGIII" Napa Valley Red Wine 2017

    Multiple layers of fruit are coaxed out of the glass by winemaker Tony Biagi. Mostly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. This is very much a bordeaux style wine with earthy notes of leather, wet leaves, and forest floor. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, figs and fine tannins allow this wine to show its depth and concentration. This is a big wine that can stand up to big food, but its silky smooth texture allows it to hold its own all by itself. Learn More

The blend leads to a very attractive, inviting fruity, floral nose with lots of rich black fruit aromas of berries and cherries, as well as chocolate, cloves, and licorice.

    Meinkleng Burgenland Red Osterreich 2018

    This is a biodynamic blend of three of Austria’s most popular red grapes: Zweigelt (60%), Blaufränkisch (30%), and Sankt Laurent (10%). Together the grapes create a wine that is “easy-drinking”, yet full of depth and spice.
