Alpha Estate "AXIA"

Syrah/Xinomavro 2017

Macedonia, Greece

 

California Cab and fine Bordeaux drinkers will love this decadent full bodied red from the the northwest region of Greece.  The Amydeon region is perfect for producing fruit for full bodied red wines: poor well-draining soils, high elevation with minimal rain fall.  Here the ancient wine growing region has one of the most technologically advanced wineries in all of Greece - the Alpha Estate.  Flavors of blueberry, black cherry, baking spice with a plush soft texture and elegant finish.  Serve with roasted meats.

For the Chateaunuef du Pape fan...

4 Gatos Locos "Miau"

Malbec 2019

Mendoza, Argentina

Farmed organically but not certified.

From the winemaker of one of our best selling Malbec (Chakana), comes this collaboration with 3 other wine makers.  This powerful and mineral driven wine comes from vineyards that have high quantities of calcium carbonate, a mineral that is attributed to some of the greatest wines of the region.   The wine is very dark, almost black, with aromas of dark blackberry, cocoa, and a deep spice and mineral note.  This wine reminds us of Rhone wines 3-4 times the price.

Manoir du Carra

Beaujolais-Villages 2020

Beaujolais, France

 

Gamay grapes make this perfect warm weather red.  Aromas of bright red cranberries and cherries, a touch of herbs and orange zest.  Light to medium bodied sort of like Pinot Noir but with more zip. Made from 70-100 year old vines grown just south of Burgundy.  The family estate has been producing wines since 1850, and is currently run by a father and sons team.

Santa Christina "Fattoria Le Maestrelle"

Red Blend 2018

Tuscany, Italy

Made by one of Italy's oldest and most acclaimed winemaking families, The Antinori, this soft red blend was originally created for Danny Meyers (11 Madison Park, Shake Shack, etc.) restaurant group. The profile of the wine is very much for those that love Italian and California wines.  Cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors highlight this sleek red. An underlying smoky note, offsetting the sweet fruit with light tannins. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.

Fabulous Ant

Pinot Blanc 2020

Hungary

Yes you read that right, this wine is from Eastern Europe.  The nation of Hungary has always been know for very high quality dessert wines, and have been making wine since the beginning of grape cultivation history.  We love this easy to quaff Pinot Blanc with its Meyer lemon, green pear and quince aromas.  Dry and crisp on the finish.   A great wine for summer patio parties.

Pair with all things crab.

Aragosta
Vermentino 2020

Sardinia, Italy

It's that time of year again, when we gather round the picnic tables and feast on steamy piles of crustaceans.  Skip the Bohs and try this bright and crisp white from the sunny shores of Sardinia - a large Island off the coast of Italy.  Would also pair great with crab cakes, oysters and any other sea-thing.

Organic Bistro red...
Petit Canet

Rouge 2020

Languedoc, France

Our definition of Bistro Red: fresh, fruity and easy to drink, but complex and balanced enough to be paired with a well cooked steak or perfectly roasted chicken.  This organically farmed blend of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache is what you would expect to drink in Paris, while enjoying a pan seared duck breast with whipped potatoes, or steak frites!
