You may have had a great wine at a local restaurant or while traveling.and now try to buy it. If you remember the type, name and origin we will try our best to locate that special wine.

Oh, and don’t miss out on our wine tastings.

Thanks,
Pete

 

 

THESE ARE SOME NEW WINES THAT WE JUST RECENTLY STARTED TO CARRY

Zin 91 Old Vine Zinfandel is ripe, with blackberry and blueberry aromas that are balanced by oaky vanilla notes and sweet cinnamon. The supple palate showcases notes of boysenberry and clove. The finish is generous with berries and spice and the acidity is balanced by present, yet tame alcohol. Aged in new and second-use French oak barrels for 9 months and bottle for 10+ months, this is approachable now, but will drink well for several years.


Hand harvested in Mendoza, Punta Pays Malbec has an aroma of ripe plums and cherries. Juicy and lush with a rich fruity palate, Punta Pays is medium bodied with a long finish that will captivate you.


In the glass, the varietal Malbec shines with an intense garnet red robe. The bouquet smells of aromas of ripe plums, currant and dried, exotic spices. On the palate, the wine has a good grip, snapping tartaric acid and exquisite freshness that seems juicy. In the finale especially the terroir notes stand out, which give the wine a delicious, saline finish.

  1. From vineyards located between Morgon and Fleurie, this is an unfiltered, unchaptalized, unfined, unsulphured wine that is a pure expression of Gamay fruit. Behind its deep red-purple color, this wine presents inviting and complex aromas of cherry-like fruit with earthy notes. A touch rustic, the palate is fresh and juicy, with red cherry fruit enhanced by a great acidity

In the eye, beautiful shine and perfect clarity, black cherry color tinged with purple.
The nose is intense, complex with scents of Mediterranean scrubland, black pepper and liqueur of small black berries with a touch of menthol and roasted too.
Beautiful scale in attack, the mouth is of a perfect balance with silky tannins, supported by the aromas of the olfaction married with notes of candied prunes.

Intensely ripe, fleshy black cherry and blueberry flavors are peppered with spice and vanilla in this fragrant, plush Dornfelder. Subtly sweet, it’s an easy, fruit-forward wine for early consumption.

 

Dense with a pleasant crimson colour. The nose reveals intense aromas
of morello cherry and blackcurrant. In the mouth, the attack is fullbodied
and round, in harmony with the fruit. Well-structured and wellbalanced,
this wine has a long fruity and spicy finish.

Deep cherry in color, it has an earthy smell. It’s a medium bodied wine with ripe cherry and black tea flavors. There’s also a strong tannic structure that you get full blast if you swish it around a while before swallowing. Food Pairing: Beef, lamb, grilled veal, game, grilled turkey

 

The nose is pleasant and fruity, the mouth is fresh and fleshy, a Lussac St Emilion to taste in the years to come.

The wine shows the richness of the vintage while also showing some firm extracted tannins. At this stage, the wine is too dry and firm. Give it until 2018 for a little softening.

“A lively green colour, with hues of pale straw is the first indication this is going to be both fresh and complex. The nose offers an intriguing array of fruits – sliced November figs, ripe nectarine and freshly-peeled satsumas (we call them naatjies!). In the background is the hint of herbaceous rosemary. The palate is round and fleshy, pushing forward ripe citrus fruits like orange, nectarine again and a fresh core of green melon. There is the hint of banana bread as well. It is moreish and beautifully balanced. But the excitement doesn’t stop there – the finish is creamy and long and fresh like watermelon sorbet. Very delicious.”

 

A dark, brooding purple colour indicates this is a serious wine with impressive structure and extract. The nose is intriguing, offering huge complexity with layer upon layer of aromas – sour cherry cheesecake, freshly bruised peppermint leaf, mulberry and dark chocolate. The palate starts off echoing these aromas on the entry, but builds with more juicy black fruit. The intense black/red fruit is kept in check and balanced by an intriguing savoury note throughout the palate. Soft, but persistent, fleshy tannin and an unexpected mini-explosion of ripe, zippy blackcurrant on the finish round off an extraordinarily rewarding wine for the price.”

 Deep, dark color and lovely aromas of blackberries and figs.The wine is full bodied and rich in flavor but elegant with a longfruit forward finish.Perfect for barbecue or any grilled meats. Also wonderful with all cheeses.

Mixed colors of ruby, plum, and brick converge in the glass. Black cherry, tar, tobacco and earth notes mingle across the complex bouquet. A lush, juicy style of Barbaresco, this fills the rich texture with cherry, strawberry, licorice and leather flavors. Supple yet firm, with terrific balance, ending with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, mineral and vanilla. The tannins are well-integrated for a young Nebbiolo, leading to a long finish. Drink now, and over the next 10 years. Pairs well with truffles, mushrooms, wild game, and lasagna. $18.99

Also known as Zinfandel, the Primitivo variety has been cultivated in Italy for centuries. This Primitivo is harvested from Donna Marzia, Conti Zecca’s most famous estate. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this well-structured wine offers an abundance of ripe fruits, accented by hints of spices. The wine has a soft, velvety texture and pairs nicely with grilled red meats, pasta dishes with meat-based sauces, and aged cheeses. $9.99

An approachable wine with aromas of violets and a mild hint of spice, Alverdi Sangiovese is a dry red filled with ripe plums, balanced by light tannins offering a slightly crisp finish. Produced in the northwest region of Emilia-Romagna, this wine is vinified in stainless steel to preserve the naturally fresh qualities of the varietal.  It rests for several months before bottling.  Enjoy this easy-drinking Sangiovese on its own or with simple, everyday fare. $9.99

Lush and red with blueish highlights. Yummy to look at and to drink, with aromas of red fruit, violets, chocolate and vanilla notes. This is liquid elegance! Try this crisp, slightly sweet Malbec with pastas in red sauce, grilled meats and tamales. $7.99

 Pale straw; distinctly aromatic (almond, citrus, green apple, herbal notes on both nose and palate); medium weight, fresh acidity; long finish. Makes a delicious dry aperitif, or drink it with most any seafood dish, seafood pastas, or roast chicken.  $15.99

The Marche region of Italy has long been known for producing structured and balanced white wines from the native Verdicchio variety.  Trebbiano adds further structure to the final blend, while Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc contribute delicate fruit aromas. Dry in style with a clean, crisp citrusy finish.

Packaged in a traditional ornamental fish bottle used for centuries in this region, it pays homage to the Marche’s rich history. It is also a good indication of the ideal pairing.  Serve with any and all seafood dishes.  Best when young.  $10.99

Ruby red wine. Ripe fruit, aromas of dark berry with a hint of spice. Medium-bodied wine with smooth tannins and a long finish.

Blend: 45% Aragonez, 45% Trincadeira , 10% Touriga Nacional. $9.99

Pure and delicious, this generous, lightly spicy and velvet-textured wine does a great job of combining ripe, tasty fruit flavors with an enticing oaky layer that seems to bring subtle sweetness. While full bodied it is not heavy, and has firm, fine-grained tannins to add texture. $19.99

Phantom Chardonnay entices with its rich layers. Green apple and pear transform into spicy flavors of freshly baked apple pie, while barrel fermentation imparts a creamy, luscious mouth feel. French oak whispers sweet notes of vanilla and melted caramel $20.99

This wine is rich, ripe, concentrated and almost sweet. It’s wonderful to smell the raspberry syrup aromas, taste the blueberry and blackberry flavors and feel the creaminess of the texture coating the palate. Low in tannins but high in viscosity, it’s a pleasure to sip. $16.99

Winemaker Notes

Flavors of cherry, currant, leather and a hint of black tea couple well with the traditional and pronounced French oak.

The 2014 Klinker Brick Cabernet Sauvignon does an excellent job in capturing the ripeness of the Lodi region without going over the top and becoming too jammy. The wine’s textures make it delicious for current enjoyment. Try it with barbecued pork spare ribs. $16.99
A word from the native Mapuche language meaning “the ritual of sharing a drink with friends,” Yauquén wines are fresh selections, with minimal oak influence, intended to be enjoyed every day with good food in good company. Yauquén Bonarda is defined by blackberry, blueberry, and raspberry aromas accented by characteristic spicy notes.
