Chewy, Jammy, Juicy Red
Lunaria “Ruminat” Primitivo 2021
'Ruminat' translated from Latin means "Chews", and this wine packs a lot in mouthfeel and on the palate - as primitivo should. Produced from Primitivo grapes farmed organic and biodynamic, this is a serious wine at a seriously low price. The grape is thought to be a relative of Zinfandel, and has lots of jammy dark fruit aromas and the texture is juicy with a slightly off dry finish. Perfect for stews, braises and of course, a Sunday ragu with lots of herbs.

Yellow Apple, full bodied, lush.
Zinck Pinot Gris 2020
A delightful example of the region's winemaking prowess. Its bright, golden hue shimmers in the glass and the nose is alive with the sweet scent of yellow apples, juicy peaches and succulent apricots, mingling with hints of delicate floral notes and a subtle minerality. On the palate, the wine is luscious and silky, with a round, full-bodied mouthfeel. Pair with roasted chicken and creamy pasta dishes or sip on its own.

Coffee, dark fruit, spice.
Koyle Gran Reserva Carmenere 2019
91 Points Wine Advocate: I like the varietal character of the 2019 Gran Reserva Carmenere, which is pungent and intense, very aromatic and open. It's a little riper than the 2018 but showing very well. The organically farmed grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels for 14 months.

Aromatic, floral, smells like spring.
Semeli “Feast” Moschifilero 2021
The label and nickname says it all: meant for a FEAST. Greet your Easter or Passover guests with a glass of this lively aromatic white, the spring aromas are abundant with notes of honeydew melon, honeysuckle, jasmine and a touch of wildflower honey. Although it smells sweet the wine is dry and has a soft texture and refreshing finish. Moschofilero is an ancient grape variety grown all over Greece – its native home.

Fun label – fun wine!
Waterdog Red Blend 2021
Portugal produces incredible value reds and this fine example is a blend of native varieties including Castelao, Touriga Nacional, and Trincadeira. Stewed red berries, blueberry, black currant dominate the aromas, with very little earth to note. The 6 months in French and American oak add a touch of vanilla on the nose and a silky texture to the finish. A great wine for entertaining and grilling.

VALUE with Old School Soul
False Bay “Old School” Syrah 2021
Stellenbosch, South Africa
A great value which pays homage to wines of the Rhône Valley. The grapes are hand harvested, fermented with wild yeasts and then raised in large wooden casks. Sustainably made this is a super wine for the money and made in a way that is more usual for far more expensive wines. Fresh with full brambly fruits, rustic herby and savory notes and balanced by fine tannins and natural acidity.

Oysters/Sushi? Lemon Lime Citrus, Minerally
Tsiakkas Xynisteri 2021
Winemaking tradition on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus goes back millennia, but in the US we barely get exposure to these wines. This fantastic value white will pair great with oysters, sushi and grilled rockfish. On the palate, the wine is dry, crisp, and refreshing, with flavors of citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit. These flavors are balanced by a slight minerality that gives the wine a pleasant structure and mouthfeel.

Tuesday night delight
Chateau Bellevue 2019
Merlot 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Cabernet Franc 10%
A wonderful wine for everyday drinking! Fruit forward but not “fruity” – complex but not complicated” and perfectly charming for the price. Aromas of dark plum, violets and a touch of vanilla. Medium bodied with a slight twang to compliment good home cooked meals.
$13.99 750ml | $134.30 Case of 12 ($11.99)
Pizza Wine! Red raspberry, juicy, zingy. 91 Points!
Borsao Garnacha 2021
Campo de Borja, Spain
91 Points James Suckling: A vibrant nose, full of dark cherries, plums, roasted Mediterranean herbs and spices. It’s medium- to full-bodied with fine-grained, fruit-loaded tannins and a fruity and floral finish.
