    Tsiakkas 2011 Koymanaapia Commandaria

    $49.99$299.94

    Cyprus Greece
    The wine is made from two local grapes, the blue grape mavro blue and the white xynisteri. The grapes are grown on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains, about 30 kilometers north of Limassol, in poor volcanic soil. 14 villages are entitled to make Commandaria. The wine growers in Cyprus are lucky; there is no phylloxera on the island so no grafting on American rootstock is necessary.
    The grapes are picked very ripe, even overripe, and thus very rich in sugar. They are then dried in the sun for one or two weeks to further increase the sugar content. Then, the grapes are pressed and the must undergoes a slow and long fermentation, often during 2-3 months. Sometimes the winemaker fortifies it with grape spirit, but it is not mandatory. The wine is aged in oak barrels for at least two years. The alcohol content of the finished wine is usually around 15%. According to the regulations, however, the alcohol may reach 20%. Commandaria wines have the sweetness, the richness and the caramel aromas in common. Some of them are almost overwhelming. To be enjoyed as an after dinner drink or with a chocolate dessert. Or whenever you feel the need for an energy boost.

    Tua Rita 2017 Rosso dei Notri

    The 2017 Rosso dei Notri is afforded a careful pre-selection of grapes from the most important vines, and the harvest was particularly limited and selective in this hot vintage. The blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Sangiovese sees a brief fermentation process and just a touch of barrique to retain the signature elements of these grapes. In the end, this Rosso dei Notri emerges as soft and dark but uncomplicated. The fruit is ripe and succulent, all very reminiscent of the 2009 vintage. You can’t beat this excellent value from Tuscany.

    The 2014 vintage Melee Grenache showcases how great Grenache can come from California. Sourced from two unique steep hillside vineyards, one in the central coast and one in Mendocino, this wine offers a kaleidoscope of aromas emerging from the glass.
    Hints of baked summer fruits, white pepper, lavender, underbrush and dry aged meats lead to an incredibly focused, yet elegant, balanced and graceful mid-palate. The finish is a blockbuster that exudes both power and finesse. This is truly a wine for the ages. UF

    A Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot blend, the 2015 Proprietary Red Mockingbird Blue is very deep purple-black in color with a mocha, cedar and toast-scented nose over a core of baked plums, black currant cordial, dark chocolate and spice box notions. Medium to full-bodied and with a very firm, taut and muscular palate, it offers savory notions on the finish. BX-6

    Turley Wine Cellars 2014 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard

    The 2014 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard emerges from a parcel in the center of town planted with at least 24 known varieties, including white grapes. Perhaps for that reason, the Library is extraordinarily complex. In 2014, there is an extra kick of vibrancy that amps up the flavors and gives the wine much of its precise, finely-sculpted personality. Readers who can find the Library should not hesitate for a second. Today, the wine is literally alive in the glass. R19-2

    The 2015 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard possesses a gorgeous structural spine to balance the intense, inky fruit. Chocolate, plum, spice and succulent red cherry notes abound in this creamy, super-expressive Petite. In 2015, the Hayne is ample, deep and beautifully rendered. R19-2
