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

Bright pale pink. Aromatically subtle with elegant strawberry notes, typical of a good Tempranillo. Soft floral touches are reminiscent of grapefruit with a light undercurrent of anise. A friendly entry denotes a great deal of volume and a pleasant texture, giving the wine a long finish.

Pairs well with all kinds of tapas; oily fish like tuna and salmon; pasta and rice dishes; and pizza.

Pale pink, with peony-like coloring. It possesses a complex nose reminiscent of red berries and fresh ripe white peaches. A very pleasant wine which embraces one’s palate with a pleasant and harmonious lightness.

Will perfectly accompany an octopus salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, grilled rock fish, red mullet and sea bream, as well as a Tagliatelle with Bolognese. It can also be very well appreciated as an aperitif.

Colour Lively, vivid rose pink. Some salmon
glints.
Nose Pleasant, intense, floral and mineral.
Palate Well balanced with freshness
combining red currants and berries tight
final.
Finish Splendidly fresh and long

Pale pink color. The wine possesses an elegant nose reminiscent of fresh berries. This wine is supple and fresh on the palate, with good level of acidity.

A perfect accompaniment to quiches, pissaladieres, and crudités.

A soft texture and slight sweetness make this deep-pink-colored wine easy on the palate. It has lots of fresh melon and raspberry flavors.

It’s good to see a wine in that increasingly rare sight: a Provence skittle-shaped bottle. This is a light and fruity wine from vineyards on the Massif des Maures, close to the sea. It has a bright crisp aftertaste with plenty of acidity to keep it all very crisp.

Rose wine flavored with natural grapefruit aromas, and light alcohol content. The association of the pomelo vivacity and the wine crispness gives a feeling of freshness and refinement. An explosion of fruits with an elegant touch of bitter sweetness. For centuries, French wines have set standards to inspire winemakers around the world.

It’s a blend of mostly Garnacha with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for complexity and color.  And there’s plenty of color – the wine almost fluoresces in the glass with the brilliant pink taking on almost lavender highlights. The aromas are just as exuberant as the color – big scents of watermelon granite, ripe strawberry, blood orange, and even a little white pepper.  The wine dances across your palate with juicy lemon acidity carrying flavors of candied watermelon, red berries, and plenty of sweet/sour citrus.  It finishes dry and crisp, with a Jolly Rancher-like tang to the lingering watermelon, tangerine, and orange zest flavors.  There’s a lot of complexity – and even more fun! – here, especially at this very attractive price.

Passion fruit, kiwi fruit and hints of strawberry mark the nose of this wine. It’s strident, intense and a bit one-dimensionally fruity, yet packs a lot of flavor into a refreshing, medium-bodied wine.

The Monastrell Rosado comes from high elevation vineyards located in the northern part of the DO on rocky, limestone-rich soils. This allows the Castano family to harvest ripe, concentrated fruit for their rosé that retains a lovely balanced acidity. In recent years Castano has move from a saignée style to a direct press of Monastrell resulting in a pink wine that is more delicate, refreshing and loaded with cherry and raspberry flavors with just a hint of herbal aromas.

Our dry, Merlot based rosé is fresh and crisp with notes of grapefruit, lime, watermelon, and a light grassiness on the nose. Throughout the palate, a lifting acidity carries flavors of bitter cherry, peach, and rose petal. Friendly with lighter fare, this wine is also a great companion for the porch or patio.

The 2017 Des Amis Rosé truly catches your eye with a beautiful salmon color with a burnt orange tinge. A classic rosé. The first time I put my nose in the glass, I described it as smelling refreshing and really pretty. Aromas of watermelon, tangerines, cherry, and orange blossoms are as enticing as any wine I’ve ever smelled. On the palate, these great summer flavors come alive but are so balanced and subtle, that I describe as a cucumber water character. A wonderful chalky and mineral character, floral background, and bright acidity with the summer fruit flavors are amazing. Imagine Zooey Deschanel singing Summer Wind standing in a field of wild flowers in a sun dress. Put that into a bottle. That’s the 2017 Des Amis Rosé.

White peach, cherry and cranberry fruits are coupled with attractive scents of white tea, talc and peony on the nose of this wine. There’s a subtle texture to the lightweight palate, thanks to notes of lime pith and bitter melon rind. It’s well balanced and easy to like.

Full of fruit flavors (raspberries and cherries), crisp and refreshing. Great cherry aromas. The mouth is full and the finish is well structured and long. Great with spicy cuisine!

 

  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.

 

 

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.

“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.”

 

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

 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

 

 

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

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. Fermented in stainless steel, the wine is aged in 40% French oak barrels and 60% stainless steel for 6 months.$10.99
This wine was named after the secret cuvee the Princes of Orange were keeping for their private consumption and sharing on special occasions. Long before the appellation Chateauneuf du Pape was created, the princes of Orange were enjoying the fine wines from this area. This wine made from a blend of 90% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, and 5% Syrah exhibits aromas of ripe black fruits, liquorice with a smooth texture and perfect balance. Ideal with grilled steaks, beef stews and cheeses.  $23.99
