DAOU

Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Paso Robles, California

 

92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon from Daou's Discovery Series is blended with 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It is still in barrel but will age around 10 months in 60% new French oak. It has a deep ruby-purple color and a nose of cassis, garrigue, charcuterie and sweet baking spices. The palate is medium-bodied, lifted and gently structured with grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long.

Chillable red - label turns blue!
Field Recordings. "Freddo" 

Sangiovese 2019

Paso Robles, California

It's no secret that we are big fans of the wines from Field Recordings.  They make fresh, and exciting wines, while also maintaining sustainable and organic farming practices.  This red was created from 100% Sangiovese, a grape grown all over Italy, and is meant just for summer sipping.  Low alcohol and vibrant aromas of cranberry and cherry make this a truly a chillable red. Throw it in the fridge and when the label turns blue, you know what to do!  Great with pizza or spaghetti and red sauce!

The perfect summer white...

Nortico

Alvarinho 2020

Minho, Portugal

Ask anyone for the best Alvarinho in Portugal and people will point to the northwestern villages of Moncao and Melgaco, just on the border with Spain. This wine is a superb example of the grape's hallmark traits: fresh citrus, peach and tropical aromas paired with clean, juicy fruit and vibrant minerality. Here, on the south bank of the Minho River, farming is as it was centuries ago, with the grapes planted on granite pergolas in plots so small they are called “jardins”--or “gardens” in Portuguese. This humble yet serious wine showcases the best of northern Portugal’s commitment to artisan production in all things.

Pure Pinot Noir...and truly lovely.

Shelter "Lovely Lilly"

Pinot Noir 2019

Baden, Germany

 

German Pinot Noir can be very Burgundian in flavor profile AND price.  In fact most of the very highest quality German reds never make it out of Germany, and when you can find them, they are over $50.  We consider ourselves lucky to offer this absolutely stunning and affordable bottling to our customers. The aromas of violets, sweet plum and subtle spice are complimented by a lovely soft texture and a firm but pleasing acid balance.  Those that enjoy Oregon Pinot Noirs will also enjoy this wine.

Pineapple bomb.

Cousino Macul "Isidora"
Sauvignon Gris 2020

Maipo, Chile

Let this wine be the reason you make ceviche.  Its a really a simple dish, but when paired with a wine like this, something complex happens in your mouth.  This lovely and unique white wine shows aromas of pineapple, white peach and lemon peel.  The zesty and tart finish make it great with all sorts of spicy seafood dishes. For best results, serve ice cold.

Tiza

Tempranillo 2019
La Mancha, Spain

 

In central Spain they drink wine like it's water!  It's easy to do that when you have old vines everywhere, making tasty and complex wines super affordable for the average Jose.  This bottle features the Spanish super varietal Tempranillo, which reminds us of a more spicy and more full bodied version of Pinot Noir.  Pair this with grilled meats and strong cheeses, or cook a paella on the grill with lots of chicken and shrimp.
