  • 22 Pirates

    22 Pirates 2016 Red Blend

    $19.99$119.94

    California
    22 Pirates was created to employ the finest Rhone Varietals from premier wine growing regions throughout California. The wine is a distinct representation of the harmony and balance that can be created when using all or some of the 22 Varietals. Each Vintage’s unique blend offers a bold structure of powerful fruit accompanied by an elegant palate appeal from the use of only the finest French Oak. Small batch fermentations coupled with extended oak aging give rise to a complex and dynamic wine that stands alone or can be paired with an exquisite meal.

  • A.A. BADENHORST FAMILY

    A.A. BADENHORST FAMILY 2018 Chenin Blanc Swartland Secateurs

    $13.99$83.94

    Coastal Region South Africa
    Vinoumedia 90 Rating
    The 2018 Secateurs Chenin Blanc, which Adi described as “the most fun wine to make,” comes from 28 different parcels, of which 17 are over 50 years old, on granite soils in the Paardeberg Mountains. It has a well defined bouquet of lemon curd and light white flower aromas. It is slightly viscous on the entry, very pure with fine acidity, and honeyed toward the finish, to the point where it could almost be a dessert wine (I could imagine this pairing wonderfully with a hard cheese ). Given the price point, this is brilliant Chenin Blanc and an outstanding value.
    Must be ordered.

  • A.A.Badenhorst, Caperitif Kaapse Dief

    A.A.Badenhorst Caperitif Kaapse Dief

    $29.99$150.00

    Western Cape South Africa
    Vinousmedia 94 Rating
    Copper-orange color. Knockout, endlessly complex perfume of orange blossom, cinnamon Red Hots, clove, ginger and mint. A silky, umami-like texture is utterly seamless and smooth. Hints of griotte cherry, orange zest, fynbos and tree bark are lifted by a strong spicy character. Wonderfully complex, moderately sweet and long, with a finishing note of bitter orange giving the finish a drier quality and great refreshment value. I bet you can’t drink just one glass. In partnership with Danish mixologist Lars-Erik Schmidt, Adi Badenhorst reinvented an old South African product that disappeared in about 1910. Serve it on its own over ice with a slice of lemon, or with club soda. It’s also remarkably versatile in cocktails.

  • Bodegas Aalto 2014 Tempranillo

    Aalto 2015 Tempranillo 1.5 lt

    The 2015 Aalto is a gorgeous wine, and even at the retail price of $50, is a value. Loaded with notions of blackberry and cassis fruits, vanilla, graphite, and high-class oak, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, has beautiful concentration, and ripe, polished tannin. It certainly has a modern slant, yet is balanced, has terrific purity, and a great finish. Give it a few years. WBC R20-1

    Not far off the more limited production cuvée, the 2016 Aalto is another brilliant wine from this estate and is all Tempranillo brought up in 50% new oak. This ripe, sexy wine delivers loads of crème de cassis, vanilla, dried flowers, and spice box notes, with just a hint of background oak. Pure, incredibly well balanced, with sweet tannins, and medium to full body, it’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for 15 to 20 years. WBC

  • Abbazia di Novacella 2013 Kerner

    Abbazia di Novacella 2017 Kerner

    $19.99$119.94

    Trentino-Alto Adige Italy
    Founded in 1142 by Augustinian monks in the stunningly beautiful Valle Isarco just south of the Austrian border, the Abbazia has a stellar reputation for an extensive range of aromatic whites and some tasty reds. The pre-Alpine vineyards are composed of grantic schist primary rock and rise above 2000 feet. Kerner, a crossing of the red Schiava with Riesling, is one of their most fascinating wines. Opulent mango, peach, and apple fruit combine with vigorous acidity, petrol nuances, deep minerality and a dry finish. WBC
