Protocolo
“Tinto” Tempranillo Blend 2018
Central Spain


Juicy Red for Chuggin’

You cannot beat the bargains from Spain, and this is one of the best - maybe in the whooooole world.  The Eguren family sources from vineyards in Rioja and Toro to create this wine, and uses some younger vines that will, once they mature, produce fruit for more expensive wines.  We love to crack a bottle of this open when we have simple weeknight meals like pizza and pasta.  This wine is simple but good.

Ancient Peaks
Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Paso Robles, California


Big and Bold with Lots to Love

In the mid 90s Robert Mondavi searched through the Paso Robles region looking for a place to grow high quality grapes.  What he found was a large ranch that contained over 5 different soil types and multiple micro climates.  The vineyards planted in 1999 became one of Mondavi’s favorite projects, producing stunning fruit and complex wines. When Mondavi tried to buy the ranch from the family that owned it, they declined and decided to make their own wines.  Ancient Peaks Cabernet is the flagship wine of the brand, and is an example of how California can still make affordable wines, that surprise and delight, with complex aromas and flavors, big juicy body and texture and an elegant finish.  The Zinfandel and Chardonnay are also available and are just a stunning.

Brigaldara
Valpolicella 2019
Veneto, Italy


Family Owned, Refreshing Red

Made by the Cesari family, Brigaldara has become a benchmark producer in one of the most important regions of Italy.  Known for their big juicy Amarone wines, they also make this great value red blend made mostly of the Corvina grape, a native to the area, which has notes of fresh summer cherries, cranberry, and candied violets.  Medium body and wonderful fresh finish.

Tenuta delle Terre Nere
Etna Rosso 2018
Sicily, Italy


Washington Post “Great Value”

This lovely wine is produced from nerello mascalese grapes, with a sploosh of nerello cappuccio, both native Sicilian varieties grown on the northern slopes of Mount Etna in eastern Sicily. The body and texture resemble a fine Chambolle Musigny from Burgundy, while the flavors are more Mediterranean herbs than Burgundian flowers. The wine opens up over several hours after uncorking and should improve over several years in your cellar.

Ercole
Barbera del Monferrato 2018
Piemonte, Italy


Perfect for Pizza

Ercole, whose English translation is Hercules, is only made possible by a generations-old cooperative of local growers in the Monferrato area. Every fall, these men and women cultivate bright and balanced fruit, allowing us to make real wines that are transmitters of time and place. The place, Monferrato, ranks among the most historic grape-growing areas of Piedmont.  The Barbera grape is one of the champions of the region, and this wine, which comes in a Liter bottle, reminds us of wines that were made 50 years ago, that you would find on every table in Italy.  Fresh, vibrant red fruit, with low alcohol and a juicy finish.  Thre freshness and drinkability makes this the absolute perfect pizza and pasta wine.

Ercole
Bianco Blend 2019
Piemonte, Italy


Unpretentious Perfection

Ercole, whose English translation is Hercules, is only made possible by a generations-old cooperative of local growers in the Monferrato area.  The white blend is composed of the locally native Cortese grape, blended with a little bit of Chardonnay and Sauvingnon Blanc.  We love how fresh, complex and vibrant this wine is, and with an unpretentious presentation, and price point it is one of our new favorites in the store.

Sea Monster
White Blend 2016
Central Coast, California


Exotic and Entrancing White

The nose on this blend is exotic and damn sexy, with notes of mango, honeydew melon, white flowers, and pineapple.  The mouthfeel is Chardonnay like, with a voluptuous richness, however no oak is used.  More citrusy flavors follow with notes of tangerine and more mango.  We love this wine on its own, and the medium acidity means you don’t need to serve food with it, but it will go well with seared scallops or mild shrimp dishes. A blend of Viognier, Riesling, Grenache Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Roussanne.

Lapis Luna
Zinfandel 2018
N. Coast (Mendocino), California


Exotic and Entrancing White

If you are going to buy wine just by the label, this is the coolest option.  The design on the front label comes from 400 year old copperplate engravings.  Usually wines with crazy cool labels have something lacking inside the bottle, this wine is not lacking anything. Not your typical Zinfandel, as it is blended with a little Sangiovese, and shows blueberry, red cherry, and a lovely peppery finish.  The splash of Sangiovese gives the Zin a little acid backbone, making this the perfect match for grilled pork chops.

Dom. Font Mars
Rose 2019
Languedoc, France

It’s pretty cool when a family winery goes back generations, and this winery has some serious history.  In 1679, Jean Clock moved from Belgium and settled in Bordeaux, and by 1686 his wines were so revered, that King Louis XIV naturalized him as a french citizen.  Over 300 years later this family is still know for great wines, which they make out of their castle in southern France.  At $12.99 it’s easy to drink like royalty - enjoy this fresh and lively dry rose with almost anything, especially robust herbaceous seafood dishes.

Dogajolo by Carpineto
Super Tuscan Blend 2018
Tuscany, Italy


Full of Fall Flavors

Carpineto is a highly respected producer of Chianti Classico, and their entry level red blend, which combines the Tuscan variety Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful way to enjoy the quality that this producer puts out, but without spending big bucks.  We love the bright red cherry, pomegranate, touch of coffee and pepper notes on this wine.  Great for grilled meats and vegetables.

Zuccardi
Malbec ‘Serie A’ 2018
Mendoza, Argentina


91 Point Value Red!

Zuccardi has been at the forefront of Organic winemaking in Argentina, and the Serie A bottling is their flagship wine,  trying to bring a quality representation of the winery and region to the masses.  Recently the winery achieved a 100 point score with one of their single vineyard expressions, and though that Malbec bottling costs 10x as much as this one, we don’t think it’s 10x better.  You can taste energy and nuance in this wine, with deep dark berry fruit, gentle spice and a complexity that comes from solid grape growing, rather than heavy handed winemaking.  Medium bodied with some silkyness but very fresh.

La Galope
Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Gascony, France


Citrus Zest in a Bottle.

We just cannot get enough of this absolutely delicious and classically French styled Sauvignon Blanc.  Citrus zest and lemon aromas are balanced with wonderful minerality and acidity, and at a price that can’t be beat.  Great with all sorts of seafood, but we especially like it with briny oysters.
