Sea Salt
Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Marlborough, New Zealand

This one is for the folks that buy wine for the label, which we don’t usually do, but in this case we had to because this one is fun AND delicious.  In fact (not opinion), this wine is as refreshing as taking a dip in the Atlantic on a hot July day.  The name “Sea Salt” is in reference to the wine flavor term “salinity” that is often used to describe a salt-like minerality and viscosity in the wine.  For some, drinking a salty beverage is a bit strange, but for those in the know, these can be some of the most enjoyable and thirst quenching wines, and they go great with salty-crunchy appetizers and seafood dishes. This wine also has a small amount of effervescence that adds extra refreshment.

Bricco dei Tati
Rose of Barbera 2019
Piedmont, Italy

 

Watermelon bomb!  This fresh and vibrant rose is a Top 12er because it delivers far beyond its price point.  Aromas of watermelon and citrus cling to a zingy and mouth-watering texture that finishes dry.  Perfect for the pool or patio and with spicy foods.

Chateau La Fleur du Roy
Bordeaux Blanc 2018
Graves, Bordeaux

Most people know the big bold Cabernet and Merlot based wines from the region of Bordeaux in western France, but they also produce some fantastic crisp, and very affordable, dry white wines.  This blend of 80% Semillion and 20% Sauvignon Blanc is fruity and aromatic, with a lot of peach and apricot fruit up front with some extra little mineral notes to follow. The wine is fairly full and well-rounded with good balance between acidity and careful use of oak.

Casamaro
Verdejo 2019
Rueda, Spain

Wine nerds talk a lot about soil, old vines, and tradition, and usually when they are talking ad nauseum about wines with those three qualities, the wine is going to be expensive.  This is not the case with this fantastic find from central Spain.  900 meters above sea level in central spain and they have ancient sea shells in their sandy soil.  Old vines - some that are used in this wine are up to 145 years old, and are pre-phylloxera.  When it comes to tradition, this family has it in quantity, choosing to farm this ancient vineyard the way it was in decades past, organically, and with care, and only cultivating two white grapes.


Tasting Note: Sweet orange citrus, cantaloupe melon, meyer lemon and an electric minerality.  Medium to high acidity, medium weight with a dry and refreshing finish.

Tintero
Rosso 2018
Piedmont, Italy

Italy has some of the world’s best wine values, and this little red blend from the north west corner of Italy is a shining example of that opinion.  We love the racy red cherry, cranberry and pomegranate aromas that bounce to your nose, and the refreshing fleshy texture on the palate.  This field blend is a blend of 50% Dolcetto, 40% Barbera, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet, 2% Nebbiolo.  The Tintero family have been making wines since 1900.

Bousquet “Virgen”
Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Mendoza, Argentina

Many customers have been asking for wines like this one, which states on the front label that it is organically grown and produced, and does not have any added sulfites.  Up to this point we have found some wines like it but never at an affordable price!  This USDA certified Cab is from some of the highest elevation vineyards in the world, giving the fruit exceptional ripe flavors of dark blackberry, cocoa, and blueberry jam.  We also carry a red blend made from Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet with the same label, farming standards, and price.

“Gaia” by Bousquet
Red Blend 2018
Mendoza, Argentina

Silky smooth, complex and totally craveworthy - we can’t believe this wine is under $20!.  Created by the french-owned Bousquet winery in Valle de Uco, “Gaia” red blend is named after the greek Earth mother goddess, and gives a nod to the winery’s dedication to sustainable and organic farming practices.  This blend of 50% Malbec 45% Syrah 5% Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 10 months in French oak, and should delight crowds that crave something like California Cabernet and Merlot, but with a bit more twang.  Dark violet color. Blackcurrants and dark plums on the nose with spice and dried herbs notes.  Medium to full bodied with bright acidity, juicy, and a silky tannin backbone.

Beronia
Crianza 2015
Rioja, Spai

Fresh on the nose with herbaceous aromas of thyme and rosemary but also displays fruity notes of cherry and blueberry. With most good Riojas, the wine changes as it is open for a few hours or days, on day two we were getting some orange and cinnamon. On the palate, it is equally complex, with sweet flavours of vanilla and milk chocolate, from the American oak, standing out.  Medium-bodied with a very long, and complex finish.
91% Tempranillo, 8% Garnacha, 1% Mazuelo

Occam’s Razor by Rasa Vineyards
Red Blend 2017
Columbia Valley, Washington

Rasa Vineyards is a collaboration of two brothers, both of whom come from a mathematics and technology background.  Their wines are created technically, and with care, and most of their top cuvees, made from Cabernet and Syrah, go for over $100 per bottle.  We have been lucky to taste some of this boutique winery’s offerings, and we can say they are as exceptional and polished as most high-end Napa Valley producers.  However, unlike most wineries touting a predominately pricey range, these guys make a fantastic every-day, affordable red for the masses.
Exact percentages not available but blend is: Syrah dominates with Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, & Petit Verdot. 20% New French Oak and 80% Neutral Oak.

 

Tasting Notes: Great Syrah is a shapeshifter, one moment it smells like blueberry pie and pencil lead, and the next it is cocoa and cassis.  This one shows massive complexity for the price, but with juicy texture, lending to refreshment.

Villa Vialade
Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Languedoc, France

Fresh and fruit forward, this Cab from Southern France is perfect for burgers, bbq or pizza.  Don’t think too much about this one, just chill it slightly and enjoy it guilt free.

Netzl
Carnuntum Cuvee 2017
Carnuntum, Austria

Climate change has been very kind to the vineyards along the Danube River.  Year after year we see better quality from these still low priced wines.  This blend of Austria’s native grapes Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch, along with Merlot, is a vibrant and spicy delight.  Aromas of bright red cherry, savory spices and herbs, and a touch of violets.  Medium bodied and a bit silky like California Pinot Noir.  This cuvee reminds us that picnics are a thing...and wines like this should be a part of said picnics.

*90 Points Wine Advocate*
Dievole
Chianti Classico 2016
Tuscany, Italy

 

Q: Is there a more perfect pairing for steaks on the grill?
A: NO! 

 

This classic Sangiovese from the heart of Tuscany shows red cherries and raspberries with orange citrus and a touch of barnyardy-earthy-goodness.  Purple and red flowers also dance around our nose as we swirl and admire the bright brick hue in the glass.  Soft texture with complimenting acidity and a powerfully peppery finish are the true star when pairing with grilled fattier cuts of steak and herbaceous sausages.
