Prestige Napa Cab

How About a
Prestige Napa Cab
for the Best Price Anywhere?!?!

This week's selection : Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville Napa Valley, 2011, a reserve Cab that sells for $80 at the winery.

Purlieu Cab is rich, full-bodied and packed with dark black fruit. Perfectly ripened flavors of black currants, blackberries, and black plum, with hints of graphite, dark cocoa, and well-integrated French Oak. 100% New French Oak for 20 months, bottled unfiltered & unfined. New world style. Only 350 cases made.

This 100% Cabernet is sourced from some of the best vineyards in Napa, predominately Coombsville, as well as some fruit from the legendary Beckstoffer Tokalon and Martinez Vineyard on Pritchard Hill.

Winemaker Julien Fayard and vineyard manager Steve Matthiasson work together to ensure that every cluster on every vine is treated as an individual and receives the precise amount of both nourishment and stress needed to produce perfectly balanced fruit.

Purlieu means “the edge of the forest” and this is a reference to Purlieu’s home base in Coombsville. Purlieu’s objective is always balance: healthy fruit at peak ripeness, with power and freshness.

Winemaker Julien Fayard crafted this Cabernet to perfection. Julien was assistant to director of winemaking at Lafite-Rothschild, and moved to Napa Valley in 2006. He's worked at Quintessa, then Atelier Melka, where, most recently, he worked as director of winemaking with Hundred Acre, Vineyard 29, Lail, Gemstone, etc.

Argy Cab for Best Price in USA

How About an Argentine Cabernet Sauvignon for the Best Price in USA?!?!

Filosur Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza 2013 is a great Tuesday night Cabernet, perfect for impromptu dinners, pot lucks, or any casual, easygoing use.

Filosur is Andeluna's new value-impressive label that features the region's finest grape varieties. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec grapes for these new Filosur releases are grown in Andeluna's vineyards in Villa Atuel, in the San Rafael Valley of Mendoza – at more than 2300 feet above sea level.

Owing to the wide temperature range between day and night, and generous sun exposure, the region's grapes show intense colors and offer great aromatic expression. The vineyards are carefully managed with a precisely accurate drip-irrigation system. Canopy management curtails yields – encouraging highly pigmented wines with palates of concentrated fruit – and favors small clusters that result in aromatic profiles that are as pronounced as they are truely representative of the grape variety.

Intense red fruit aromas. Velvety and smooth on the palate. Great, fruit laden finish with a hint of vanilla, dulce de leche & chocolate. This Argentine Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy complement to steak, roast beef, duck, grilled lamb, hamburgers, and other hearty fare.

Burgundy for Lowest Price in USA

How About an Organic Burgundy for the Best Price in USA?!?!

Maison Bertrand Ambroise Nuits-Saint-Georges 2010 is a well-balanced Pinot Noir with great provenance that is perfect with Halibut, Salmon, Chicken, Beef and Duck.

Like many premium Burgundies, this baby is drinking well right now, but can benefit from additional bottle aging for up to ten years.

The origin of Domaine Ambroise goes back to the 18th century. At that time, only a few plots were worked for several generations. It was in 1960 that the family then started to develop their vines and wines. In 1987, Bertrand Ambroise takes to the field. Passionate about the work of the vine and wine lovers, he developed the area that has now reached about 17 hectares. They are a family passionate about wine and this is a real philosophy that is placed around the two varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Lovely purity and silky texture highlight this medium-bodied red, which is firm, with tight-grained tannins and a lingering aftertaste. This wine, opulent and very expressive, reflects the character of wines of the Cotes de Nuits. Attractive but full character, you will find red fruits and ripe fruits, a little bit sweet. Spicy touch show its youth. With time, you will find truffle and wood aromas, characteristic of aging.

Bertrand Ambroise called 2010 a "superb vintage that is easy to understand as the wines are classic but round and approachable plus the underlying terroir is really at the forefront. That's the good news. The bad news is that quantities were down 40%, which hurts, especially since 2011 wasn't much more abundant. I would describe the style of the 2010s as resembling either 2007 or 2002 but in both cases with more underlying material and with greater aging potential as well."

Best Price on 94 Point Chard

How About a Super Premium 94 point Chard for the Best Price in America?!?!

Evening Land Vineyards Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay, Seven Springs Vineyard La Source 2011 is a balanced wine from Oregon's cool Wilammette Valley.

Brilliant pale-gold in color with an edge of silver, the complex aromas fill the glass with citrus fruit, white peaches, and floral notes intertwined with aromas of biscuits. The smooth attack broadens nicely, and fully, on the palate with great texture, complexity, and mineral notes that complement the honeysuckle and citrus flavors. The long finish is sustained by a great mineral balance that makes your mouth water...and demands another glass.

2011 La Source Chardonnay comes from old-vine Dijon clones, planted in 1995 to the iron-rich, volcanic soils that make Seven Springs so successful.

The wine was made in the traditional Burgundian style – long, gentle pressing of whole clusters. The golden juice had a light settling just before it was transferred to barrel for its spontaneous indigenous fermentation; gently stirring the lees during the aging in French oak. The wine was aged in barrel for 11 months in 25% new oak, then further aged in tank – on lees – for another five months.

When word got out that Dominque Lafon had started making Pinot Noir in Oregon, it created quite a buzz. He signed on as the consulting winemaker for Evening Land Vineyards (ELV), a wine label started in 2005 by Mark Tarlov, a former Hollywood guy, along with partners Danny Meyer, Jacques Prieur, and Dorothy Cann Hamilton.

Since its founding, the winery has undergone a number of changes. Founder Mark Tarlov left the company in January 2012. In the summer of 2012, Evening Land sold its 40 acres of Sta. Rita Hills acreage holdings to Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr. Moorman and Parr introduced their own estate label, Domaine de la Côte in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA in the fall of 2013.

In 2014, Moorman, Parr and Charles Banks of Terroir Selections became minority partners in Evening Land Vineyards and took over operations. Wine maker Ian Burch was named winemaker, and Dominique Lafon, a consultant on the project, continues to play a large role.

94 points, Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, expressive, focused and concentrated, dancing lightly with an array of toast and mineral accented peach, pear, lime and orange blossom flavors."

94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "White peach and citrus dominate a luscious, creamy yet vibrantly juicy palate whose sense of richness and sheer density go beyond that of the 'regular' Seven Springs bottling, yet without sacrificing clarity, or sheer juicy refreshment. There are more piquant elements incorporated here: peach kernel and lime pip, toasted nuts and stone, all of which add to the wine's prodigious length as well as profundity. There isn't a bit of overt oakiness to Evening Land's Chardonnays. Interestingly, they all spend six months out of barrel on their lees in tank before bottling."

93 points Wine and Spirits "Evening Land's latest vintage of La Source Chardonnay may rank among its prettiest, with delicate scents of orange blossom and bee pollen developing with air. A salty peach flavor run through the wine,that saline minerality lining the texture, supporting it with polish and grip. It will develop further with cellar time."

Barbaresco at Best Price in USA

How About a
2010 Barbaresco
@ 36% Off?

This week's selection: Michele Chiarlo Barbaresco 2010 Reyna, a Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy.

Michele Chiarlo's long list of wines includes interesting selections from Barbaresco as well. The 2010 Barbaresco Reyna is designed to show a bigger and lusher side of Barbaresco, and it does indeed do that. Soft oaky layers are topped by ripe fruit, dark cherry, leather and cigar box. The richness and plushness of the wine is immediately apparent and makes this suitable for near-term enjoyment

The vineyards lie on the steep, southwest facing Langhe hillsides. Grapes are harvested an average of 10 to 15 days later than normal, resulting in extremely rich musts high in sugar and lower in acidity. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French Allier and Slavonian oak followed by additional aging in bottle.

Pure, high-toned red berry aromas and flavors with spice notes surround a core of vivid acidity and moderate tannins. Similar in character to Barolo, but more delicate, this Barbaresco has great aging potential.

"Starts out soft and supple, offering cherry, menthol, white pepper and tea notes. Firms up, staying balanced and graceful, with tobacco and tea accents gracing the finish. Best from 2015 through 2028." 90 Points Wine Spectator

"A succulent, soft Barbaresco with ripe tannins and a juicy finish. Plenty of dried-strawberry and walnut character. Friendly and delicious now. " 90 Points James Suckling

Oregon Pinot Best Price in USA

How About a premium, single vineyard Oregon Pinot for the Best Price in USA?!?!

Evening Land Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, Seven Springs Vineyard 2011 is a well-balanced Willamette Valley Pinot Noir that is perfect with Halibut, Salmon, Chicken, Beef and Duck.

This baby is drinking well right now, but give it a year or three in the cellar to see it really shine!

Deep, brilliant garnet in color, the nose is voluptuous and broad showing red and black fruit at first and then opening into floral notes of rose and lavender with hints of cardamon and dried boletus. The palate is seamless with deep fruit flavors of blueberry and sour cherry cobbler, hints of rosemary and a very fine texture throughout. The finish is precise and direct, sustained by mineral notes and lingering fruit flavors, in the classic Seven Springs Vineyard style.

92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2,700 cases of Evening Land's flagship 2011 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard – comprised of around half Pommard and half Dijon clones – is striking for its immediate display of carnal and mineral dimensions: smoked and roasted red meats, saline and alkaline sea breeze emerge already in the nose, accompanied, to be sure, by ripe dark berries. Tart-edged elderberry and blackberry inform a polished and vivaciously bright palate and correspondingly exuberant, sustained finish. There isn't an ounce of fat or of superficial sweetness here, and an undertone of forest floor and wet stone sets a somewhat somber contrast with the refreshing juiciness of fruit acidity; but the upshot of this dark-light paradox is both intrigue and sensual appeal. Look for high performance through at least 2022."

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - "Vivid red. Spicy cherry and red berry aromas are complemented by zesty minerality and a hint of potpourri. Bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors put on weight with air, showing a silky texture and slow-building sweetness. At once powerful and lively, with the berry and mineral notes echoing on the focused, persistent finish."

When word got out that Burgundy winemaker Dominque Lafon had started making Pinot Noir in Oregon, it created quite a buzz. He signed on as the consulting winemaker for Evening Land Vineyards (ELV), a wine label started in 2005. The name Evening Land was inspired by the lure of Homer's ideal garden and is the final chapter of Homer's Odyssey. Since its founding, the winery has undergone a number of changes, but Lafon continues to play a large role.

NZ Sauv Blanc at Best Price in USA!

How About an elegant Sauvignon Blanc for the Best Price in America?!?!

Peregrine Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2013 is an organically farmed, SauvignonBlanc that's the perfect pairing for Springtime fare, like fresh seafood, and composed salads.

Peregrine Wines is located in the Gibbston region of Central Otago near Queenstown, deep in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand. Snow capped mountains dominate the landscape for at least 8 months of the year, with vineyards in the valleys below - a continental climate giving the area hot and dry summers with cool nights.

Peregrine's prime focus is on growing premium Pinot Noir and white varieties from their estate managed vineyards which are meticulously hand tended in a sustainable manner.

With auspicious beginnings, Peregrine's inaugural 1998 Sauvignon Blanc won the Champion Trophy at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards. Since then the winery has continued its winning ways, amassing a hoard of domestic and international goodies for the trophy cabinet. The ultimate goal of owners Lindsay McLachlan and Greg Hay has been to produce hallmark Central Otago wines off their own organically certified vineyards, augmented with fruit from selected growers.

The wines are crafted by Otago native Nadine Cross in a stunningly designed winery complex featuring a dramatic canopy evocative of a falcon's wingspan.

90 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Pale silver-yellow color. Aromas of lemon, grapefruit pith, white pepper, tarragon and lemon grass. Supple, dry and savory, with lovely limey cut to its pepper and mineral flavors. Not sweet or fleshy but a nicely understated Sauvignon Blanc with very good subtle persistence."

Piesporter Michelsberg Auslese is a late harvested wine with a full body and rich mouth filling ripe apricots, pineapples and honey overtones. The good acid balance results in a firm, lush and lingering finish that is very focused.

Made from Riesling and Müller-Thurgau grapes, hints of peaches and green apples are balanced perfectly with crisp acidity to provide a clean and fresh finish.

91 Point Pinot, Under $30

How About a 91 point Pinot Noir for Under Thirty Bucks?!?!?

This week's selection : Evening Land Vineyards Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, 2011, a balanced Pinot from the cool Willamette Valley.

When word got out that Dominque Lafon had started making Pinot Noir in Oregon, it created quite a buzz. He signed on as the consulting winemaker for Evening Land Vineyards (ELV), a wine label started in 2005 by Mark Tarlov, a former Hollywood guy, along with partners Danny Meyer, Jacques Prieur, and Dorothy Cann Hamilton.

Since its founding, the winery has undergone a number of changes. Founder Mark Tarlov left the company in January 2012. In the summer of 2012, Evening Land sold its 40 acres of Sta. Rita Hills acreage holdings to Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr. Moorman and Parr introduced their own estate label, Domaine de la Côte in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA in the fall of 2013.

In 2014, Moorman, Parr and Charles Banks of Terroir Selections became minority partners in Evening Land Vineyards and took over operations. Wine maker Ian Burch was named winemaker, and Dominique Lafon, a consultant on the project, continues to play a large role.

The grapes for the Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir are predominantly from the Eola Springs Vineyard – the fruit from these old vines complements new plantings at Seven Springs Vineyard to create a beautiful representation the AVA. Both vineyards showcase the famous red, volcanic soils that the region is famous for and are farmed by sustainable and organic practices, respectively, to emphasize stewardship of the land.

The grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and began to ferment naturally after a 4-5 day cold soak in our open top oak and concrete fermenters. Gentle punch-downs were performed twice daily throughout fermentation to help soften the extraction of the tannins. Aging occurred in once-filled and neutral French oak barrels for 14 months; bottled unfined.

Beautiful deep garnet in color, the nose is filled with bright cherry aromas with floral notes and undertones of earthy forest floor. The palate is broad with lush, with a slightly chalky texture, yet elegant and precise with sustained fruit flavors amongst fine and textured tannins. The wine finishes elegantly in harmonious fashion.

90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blueberry and huckleberry inform an ingratiatingly polished palate..., the overall impression unusually soft and sweetly ripe for a 2011. A savory undertone of meat stock serves for saliva inducement in a lingering finish. This bottling saw only second year and older barrels."

91 points, Wine & Spirits: "Excels in this sort of smoky, mineral-driven red, a Pinot with brooding density."

Wines of this quality are normally seen in the marketplace for $45/bottle and up. The winery switched distributors, and the wine was made availabale to us at a substantial discount, which we are passing onto you.

At under $30 when purchased in a case, this is a screaming deal that you shouldn't pass up. Surely, there's salmon and poultry in your dining future, and Evening Land Eola-Hills Pinot is just the ticket!

Best Price in USA

How About a 90 point Montefalco Rosso for the Lowest Price in the USA?!?!?

This week's selection : Arnoldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso DOC 2010, red wine blend of Sangiovese and Sagrantino from Perugia in Umbria, Italy.

Montefalco Rosso is produced from Sangiovese, Merlot and Sagrantino grapes, a local varietal.

Los Angeles Times: "I've always loved this Sangiovese with a touch of Sagrantino and Merlot in the blend. It's from the Umbrian hilltop town of Montefalco and the winery Arnaldo-Caprai has always made one of the best. The 2010 vintage is no exception, bringing a full-bodied red with notes of cherries and cassis, a fine perfume and gentle tannins. Pull the cork on this one for a roast duck or goose, or a crown roast of pork or beef."

In 1971, Arnaldo Caprai bought the Val di Maggio estate in Montefalco, in the region of Umbria, fulfilling his lifelong dream to produce a wine of his own and discover the potential of the local varieties—particularly Sagrantino, a native grape that has grown in the region for over 400 years.

The Montefalco region, an area rich in history and winemaking tradition, was historically known for its sweet wines, particularly Orvieto, a white wine, and Sagrantino, a red, made using the passito method, which helps concentrate sugars and balance the natural tannin of the grape.

In 1988, Arnaldo's son Marco Caprai took over managing the winery and brought with him a passion and determination to produce top quality wines from the region. Over the past decade, Marco's commitment has led to groundbreaking research and experimentation on clonal selection, new trellising systems, high density plantings and huge improvements in the quality of Sagrantino made as a dry wine. Today, the Arnaldo Caprai winery is the acknowledged leader in the production of top quality Sagrantino di Montefalco, a wine produced exclusively from Sagrantino, and along with numerous awards over the years, was Voted Winery of the Year 2006 from Gambero Rosso.

The winery, located in the area of Montefalco, holds approximately 370 acres of vineyards (136 are currently in production) and produces both red and white wines.

90 points, Wine Enthusiast: "This blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot delivers a smooth mouthfeel and ripe fruit flavors, with background tones of black licorice and moist pipe tobacco. A spot of crisp acidity appears on the finish."

90 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous "Good deep red with ruby highlights. Expressive aromas of raspberry, violet and tea leaf on the perfumed, sangiovese-dominated nose. Dense and sweet, boasting lovely depth and plenty of framing energy to its blueberry and sour red cherry flavors. Building but polished tannins coat the palate on the long, bright finish. Very impressive Montefalco Rosso."

Killer NZ Sauv Blanc

How About a bright and zippy
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
at a great price?!?!?

This week's selection : Makara Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough New Zealand, 2013, a bracingly good SB that screams for ersters, I mean oysters, ceviche, chevre, or other lighter fare.

The steep cliffs of Makara Coast overlook Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand and connects the Tasman Sea with the South Pacific Ocean. The vineyards are strongly influenced by this maritime climate, and Makara wines manifest the unspoiled landscape of New Zealand, with purity of flavor and distinctive regional character.

Makara Sauvignon Blanc is grown in Marlborough, which is split into two distinct river valleys, each contributing stylistic differences to this delicious wine.

The Wairau Valley has a warmer climate, with shallow, stony and fast-draining soils. 70% of the Makara blend is from the Wairau, a more inland location. Characteristics of passion fruit, flint, gooseberry, grapefruit and tropical fruits are what make the Wairau Valley unique.

The Awatere Valley is the smaller of two sub-regions and lies east of Wairau. It's a similar climate, however there is lower rainfall and cooler temperatures. The Awatere Valley is characterized by a distinctly crisp and herbaceous style, with marked minerality that complements and balances out the Wairau fruit.

Gently crushed and pressed, the juices are all cool settled before being racked. Following a long cool fermentation, the young wine is left to age on light leeds prior to blending. Ripe, vibrant fruit aromas of gooseberry and grapefruit, with an overriding fragrant sweetness reminiscent of specialty NZ honeys.

In the mouth is plump, smoothly textured and round before the signature juicy acids find and define the edges. Bright, fresh flavors of lime citrus, tropical fruit and crisp, green capsicummirror the nose, while flavors of herbaceous smoke and refreshing grapefruit linger on the finish.

Delicious - passion fruit and citrus zest. Very bright. Smooth and round palate with signature acidity. Fresh lime and jalapeño linger In the finish

Wine Enthusiast: "varietally on target. Gooseberry and pink grapefruit aromas and flavors finish on a mouthwatering note"

Zinfandel at 40% Off

How About a
Great Mendo Zin
at 40% Off?!?!?

This week's selection : Edmeades Zinfandel, Mendocino, 2012, a brambly Zin that's perfect on the porch, with stews or braises, or with bold cheeses.

Edmeades Winery was one of the first wineries in the cool Anderson Valley, and has been making a comeback lately thanks to careful management and plantings.

Edmeades is famous for its limited bottlings of iconoclastic Zinfandel from the cool, coastal vineyards of Mendocino County.

Dr. Edmeades planted his first 11 acres of vineyards in 1963. He founded his winery and launched his own brand in 1972. The Jackson Family purchased Edmeades in 1988 and brought current winemaker Ben Salazar on board in 2012

Ben's approach is traditional and natural; our methods are decidedly low tech - native yeast fermentations in small, open-top bins, hand punchdowns, and minimal manipulation.

The result is a medium to full-bodied Zinfandel layered with aromas of wild blackberries, spiced plums, cherries, cracked black pepper, and clove spice. A round and lush texture, with flavors of blackberry compote and red-fleshed plum, is balance by fine tannins and a pleasing acidity. Notes of toasted oak, vanilla, cherry cola, and chocolate highlight a warm and juicy finish.

Wine Enthusiast: "This has what you're looking for in a good, dry red for dinner time, namely fruit aromas, tasty fruit flavors, full body and a firm texture of tannins and acidity. It makes a nice candidate for House Red!"
