Fable Farm Fermentory 2019 Sparkling Apple-Grape Wine 'Jalu'

From our friends in Barnard, Vermont, this is a tasty, "sparkling apple-grape wine,"as they describe, "a medley of foraged cider apples and Vermont grown grapes." About half/half macerated cider and grapes (white, grey and red), the maceration period is longer than usual for cider, providing a really smooth bead, with fine bubbles, and nice energy. The grapes add cranberry and cherry notes. All in all, it is a perfect play between Pet-Nat and cider, totally dry and refreshing, not too "apple-y" and very clean for a zero zero (no SO2 added and no filtration) cider-wine! Perfect for Summer afternoons, or late mornings (or those late night moments when you don't want to open another bottle of wine!).   -EL

Zahel Gemischter Satz 2020 Vienna Mauer

A field blend from within the city limits of Vienna. Mauer is the southern most neighborhood of Vienna's amphitheater-like, historic vineyard area. A mix of 6 grapes (Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Grauburgunder, Weissburgunder, Chardonnay and Traminer) harvested from their Ried Preussen and Ried Weissleiten vineyards which are biodynamically certified. The grapes thrive at this high elevation...330 meters above sea level in a distinct soil type called Flysch (sandstone on top of limestone bedrock). The grapes are hand harvested in one day and co-fermented in stainless steel. The grapes undergo 24 hours of cool maceration before the juice is pressed and allowed to ferment naturally with only native yeasts. Before bottling, the wine is aged for 8 months on its fine lees without batonnage. It is a bright, elegant, mineral version of this classic Viennese and immensely drinkable wine.  Winemonger

Beaujolais

Vionnet, Karim 2020 Beaujolais-Villages

Karim Vionnet, who worked for years with Guy Breton, makes Beaujolais-Villages and Chiroubles with 5 hectares of vines averaging 55 years old. No chemical treatments in the vineyard and no yeasts, sugar or sulfur added in vinification. The Beaujolais-Villages, from vines in Quincie, Beaujeu and Lantigne, receives about 10 mg of sulfur at bottling. As we have watched a lot of our favorite wines from the region creep up in price, the Vionnet is still mercifully affordable and delicious. It's full of pretty high toned strawberry and purple-tinged fruit and lined around the edges with hints of dark flowers and baking spices, etc etc. What is really important with great Beaujolais is that fresh quenching feel that comes when you drain your glass after a bite of fatty ham or sausage with some crusty bread. This is a perfect wine when you need a bottle or four. Sam Ehrlich

Domaine de l'Enclos 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

From a parcel of 40 year-old vines, this is lovely, satisfying Chablis, with ripe fullish yellow fruit in the attack and mid-palate and forceful minerality in the finish. This is a great candidate for mid-term aging (the 2016, backward upon release, grew into a beautiful swan with five years in the bottle).  Sam Ehrlich

Feneuil, Emilien 2018 Coteaux Champenois Chamery Rouge Drey Moutier 1.5L

Whereas the Les Goulats is a more powerful and structured Coteaux, Les Drey Le Moutier is more overtly chalky and high-toned. The robe is an intense ruby. The nose (worth the price of admission) is spicy and red-fruited with notes of rose petal and cherry stone and though structured, the palate is a bit more juicy on the palate. Both of Coteaux Rouges are poised and elegant, though this is more silk to Goulats' (very pretty) velvet. John McIlwain

100% organically-farmed Pinot Noir. Les Goulats is a single parcel located in Chamery. The northeast-facing slope is comprised of sandy clays over limestone. For the Coteaux Rouge, the grapes are destemmed. The 2018  Coteaux Champenois Rouge Les Goulats is a most expressive Coteaux. Black-fruited, ripe, and a bit bosky on the nose. The palate shows black cherry and black berry seed fruit on a broad and structured palate. Impressive length and fine-grained tannins beneath fruit bode for excellent ageability. John McIlwain

Laherte Frères NV Champagne Brut Ultradition 375 ml

60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay that doesn't go through malolactic fermentation, along with 10% Pinot Noir. There is a delicate red fruit quality — pale plums — but otherwise the high-toned Chardonnay comes through with a delightful lemon tone. Earthy salinity and minerals lead to a dry, mouth-watering finish. A large percentage of Meunier gives this Champagne a broad, rich, earthy character that matches very well with Beau Soleil oysters and Caviar. MSB

Vollenweider 2019 Mosel Riesling Wolfer Goldgrube Auslese GKA 375ml

The 2019 Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Auslese GKA was made from fully botrytized fruit picked at 128° Oechsle, and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (140 g/l) per the indispensable Mosel Fine Wines. If the Spätlese from the vintage is effusive on the nose, the Wolfer Goldgrube Auslese GKA is downright ebullient with an riot of beautiful floral aromatics with, red fruit, spice and a creamy character following. The palate is poised, nervy, and vibrant with snappy energy and deep mineral cut belying the noble sweetness with juicy stone fruit, acacia honey, passionfruit and creaminess carry across the lip-smacking finish. This is already verging on profound and will age beautifully for decades. One of the finest bottles we've ever tasted from Vollenweider. Glorious! John McIlwain

Cantina del Lupo 2019 Monferrato DOC Nebbiolo

Made from organically farmed grapes, by one of the Langhe’s largest organic vineyard owners, with vines on the margins of the great sites of Barolo and Barbaresco. They make more than they can sell under their own label, so we’ve lucked-out: the wine is delicious, ready to drink, and a great buy at the price. Classic Nebbiolo, with roses and a hint of dried red cherries, earthy forest floor, and fine acidity.

Oddero, Luigi 2016 Barolo Convento

The fruit for this '16 Barolo came primarily from east and south-east facing plots in La Morra, with some Nebbiolo from east facing vines in the Barolo commune. The wine was fermented in stainless steel with a 25 day maceration on the skins, before aging in large Slavonian oak casks for 2 years. The Convento '16 is a lightly bricking cherry in the glass when the bottle is first opened but fills out into a brilliant, deep, clear red hue after an hour of air. It begins distinctly minty, with raspberry and red plum. A little clove and milled coffee bean waft over a woodsy smell of stripped bark. Over time, sweet orange peel, pungent roses, and candied strawberry appear, adding richness and pleasant aromatic dimension. The palate has a bright, mineral core - but also real juiciness. Flavors of zingy red apple and cranberry begin a little pinched, but quickly fall on the tongue like a wave of healthy fruit. The wine finishes on a serious note, with a hint of menthol and a dash of black tea. Fantastic, semi-chewy Nebbiolo tannin and firm acidity are long lasting. Drink now through 2030.

Antica Tenuta Pietramore 2018 Pecorino Superiore

Although Chambers has been bringing in this wine for years, it just got written up yesterday 3/21/22 in Eric Asimov's TEN GRAPES WORTH KNOWING BETTER article!  Found in the Marche and Abruzzo, Pecorino got its name from the sheep herders who used to eat the grapes while tending their flocks.  It is a variety adapted to high altitude hillside vineyards with a long, cool growing season, and typically produces very full body wines, with plenty of acidity and delicate flavors. The 2018 Pecorino from Pietramore is produced from the chalky soils of Chieti, a province located in the northern limits of Abruzzo. The vines have a north-western exposure. After pressing, the juice spends 8-10 hours in contact with the skins. The wine is aged on the lees in steel vats, with a short time spent in bottle before release. The wine's color is a deep yellow. The nose is loaded with citrus and sea spray. The palate is full bodied with strong acidity, but broad flavors of apple,  citrus, herbs, and salt. A perfect wine for shellfish and sheep's milk cheeses. Giselle Hamburg

Nozay 2018 Sancerre Chateau

“Chateau du Nozay”: This is a special cuvée from the estate’s oldest and best-exposed vines closest to the chateau itself. As of 2018, the vines for the “Chateau du Nozay” are 47 years old, and while the wine possesses the same almost Chablis-like carriage as the “Domaine” bottling, the intensity and depth are noticeably ratcheted up here. While it’s still lean and punchy, the vines’ diet of more sun and deeper subsoils reveals itself in a glimmer of glycerol succulence on the mid-palate and a rounder, longer finish. A certain density that still avoids any sense of heaviness suggests the possibility of interesting cellar development, and for those inclined to allow the Sauvignon’s youthful exuberance to subside and let the limestone shine through, this will prove a very rewarding purchase. The production here is barely five percent of that of the “Domaine” Sancerre, so available quantities are scant.

Chateau Musar 2000 Rouge (Bekaa Valley, Lebanon)

When tasted in early November 1999, the wines were tannic, concentrated and powerful, but very well balanced. Now at 20 years after the vintage, the 2000 holds on to its primary fruit whilst really starting to reveal the classic Musar identity, balancing out the characteristic sweet spice and desiccated fruit notes with more evolved elements of leather, tar, tobacco and a hint of game. These complex aromas and flavours are lifted with a fresh lick of acidity that will ensure the wine will continue to age gracefully for years to come.  (from Chateau Musar website)

Musar 2019 Hochar Pere et Fils

Hochar Père et Fils Red has often been described as the ‘second’ wine of Chateau Musar. A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced  from a single vineyard near the Bekaa Valley village of Aana, characterised by deep soils over limestone. Wines are aged for 6-9 months in barrel before blending. Bottling is without filtration or fining, and the wine generally is aged in bottle for several years before release. The first half of 2019 was exceptionally cold, creating a harvest with dramatically reduced quantities. The wine has aromas of bitter sweet cherries and hints of dark chocolate. Bright red fruit flavors and sweet, spicy notes. Soft tannins and fresh acidity with very long length.

Nerantzi 2021 Macedonia (Greece) Assyrtiko

 The Mitropoulou family planted Assyrtiko in a valley in Central Macedonia more than a decade ago and winemaker Evanthia Mitropoulou finds that it thrives in the rich loam soils; she credits the limestone that lies underneath for giving the wine its mineral flavors.  The vineyards at nearly 1000 feet, are an ideal alternative to the volcanic pomice and ash that make up Santorini. Farmed organically, the vines produced a small, concentrated crop in 2021, which she vinified in stainless steel, with minimal sulfur. The result is zesty and invigorating, perfect for warmer weather. The nose is redolent of citrus, white flowers and chalky stones while the palate exudes flavors of lime, white peach, green apple underscored by bright acisity and crunchy salinity. The finish goes on for miles with a savory minerality that is positively lip smacking. For lovers of Muscadet, Albarino, Chablis and platters of briny oysters! Giselle Hamburg

Foulards Rouges 2021 Vin de France La Soif du Mal Rouge

Les Foulards Rouges  "La Soif du Mal" is  one  of the emblematic wines of the domain. As most of the cuvées, the name is a tribute to a movie, in this case  Orson Wells' "Touch of Evil."   It is a blend of different plots of Grenache  with 20% of 60-year old Mourvèdre coming from a newly acquired plot also on the bottom of the hillside. Hand-harvested, the grapes are chilled on arrival, then vinified whole-cluster for 15 days at low temperature in carbonic maceration. All the free run and press juices are blended, then the wine is aged for 6 months in cuve before being bottle by hand without any fining, filtration or SO2. (12% alcohol).The nose is at first a little shy, then after 30 minutes, opens up on exuberant patchouli, lilac, coriander seed notes enhanced by some blueberry and vine peach hints. The palate is darker and chewier than expected, without losing its delicacy - I would put this on the Mourvèdre. It adds also some black raspberry, rose water, leathery and smokey notes, balancing very well the volubility of the Grenache. The wine holds up very well over a couple of days.. 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre.

Foulards Rouges 2021 Vin de France Le Fond de l'Air est Rouge

Les Foulards Rouges "Le Fond de l'Air est Rouge" is made from 80 year-old Cinsault vines grown on sandy granite soils giving yields of 25hl/ha on the bottom of the hillside of Montesquieu-des-Abères. Hand-harvested, the grapes are chilled on arrival, then vinified whole-cluster for 7 days at low temperature in carbonic maceration with wild yeasts.  The free run and press juices are blended, then the wine is aged for 6 months in cuve before being bottle by hand without any fining, filtration or SO2. 12% alcohol. Cinsault is still an under-appreciated grape variety: mostly planted and used today to make insipid rosés, the grape can really produce delightful, light reds without being thin or simple. The nose is all sour red cherry,  raspberry, fresh hop, wild rose. The palate is definitely a delicious, uplifting wine, with its light structure and its spine of acidity. You pick a bit of crab apple and green curry. Natural wine fans will love this wine, but more classic drinkers will also enjoy it for its savory quaffability. Chill it a bit and serve it in a medium size glass and enjoy it with just about anything.

Foulards Rouges 2021 Vin de France Les Vilains

Les Foulards Rouges "Les Vilains" comes from one single plot of 80 year-old Carignan on the sandy granitic hillside of Montesquieu-des-Abères.  Hand-harvested,  chilled, the whole-cluster grapes undergo a carbonic maceration at low temperature (15C) for 2 weeks or so. The free run and press juice are blended then aged in used barrels until beginning of Spring. The wine is bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with no added SO2. (13% alcohol) "Les Vilains" has the most opulent nose of the line-up, full of red and black currant, sloe berries, roasted dark spices, nutmeg and pepper finishing with leather and smoked meat. The palate has the typical acid tension of the Carignan, with its blue fruit vibrancy, as well as its typical reduction and its angular tannins - clove, musk and roasted Provençal herbs. It is a quite a fresh and crunchy red for the Roussillon.  A good decant will be a plus if you drink today - it can also be kept 2-3 years. This wine would be delicious with a Ruben sandwich, or any type of hearty charcuterie. 80% Carignan, 20% Grenache

This cuvée has a beautiful nose, between white peach, lemongrass, limoncello, yuzu zest and freesia. The Muscat aromas are all nuanced.  The palate is really fresh, with a bright zesty acidity finishing with a touch of quinine bitterness.  Don't hesitate to decant the wine or keep it in the fridge, recorked, for a day or two, serve it in all-purpose white wine glass not too cold.

Villet, Gerard & Christine 2017 Arbois Pinot Noir

In 2017, the Villets filled one of their very large barrels with Pinot Noir, and had a bit extra in a stainless tank. After tasting both, there was a particular appeal to the fresh snappy nature of the tank Pinot, so we requested they save us some! Even now in 2022, the wine has a lot of freshness and pep. Perhaps every so slightly reductive on opening, this blows off within 10 minutes. A bit less immediately charming than the Trousseau or Poulsard, this Pinot Noir really starts to shine after about an hour open, with perfectly balanced red fruit. Very pure wine, with a sharp mineral core, and a delicate finish. -EL

War & Rust Quinquina Aperitif Wine 500ml

A beautiful American aromatized wine in the style of Italian Chinato, I've been a huge fan of this quinquina for a while, and it's had a place at my Thanksgiving table for a number of years now. (Oskar Kostecki)  A little from the wine-maker: "Originally I took Barolo Chinato for inspiration, and cinchona bark remains one of the main ingredients, but in both recipe and method, it has become something different than chinato. To make it, I arrest fermentation by adding brandy when there is still sugar in the must. This makes for a slightly different sweetness level each harvest, so I always have to adjust the the bittering agents, which gets me tinkering with the other ingredients, so the recipe changes a bit every year. I use about 20 different herbs, barks, roots and botanicals including: cinchona bark, gentian, wormwood, anise, myrrh, Virginia juniper, rose petal, chamomile, and ginger root.I started it while working in Sonoma County, so it was originally made from Pinot Noir, and I made a half barrel for the first batch. It has followed me around in my day jobs, so these days there is a lot of Cabernet Franc, but there's Tannat, there's Petit Verdot, there's even Petit Manseng. I leave in the stems, as their flavor seems to work with the whole. It now has more than enough Virginia fruit that I could legally label it Virginia, but since there are over 20 herbs and botanicals, I don't bother with a place name. It is a pseudo-solera in that I have a mother batch, bottle some of it, make more at the next harvest, and then add it to the mother. It has wine going back to 2007. I don't filter it. If it ferments in the bottle one day, maybe I will change that, but I'm pretty sure that would take something away." Ben Jordan

Amphores 2020 Saint-Joseph "Les Sept Lieux"

The Amphores "7 Lieux" is from young vines, planted in the 90's, always organic, and from parcels of old vines, converted to organic, in Chavanay, below Condrieu. Philippe and Veronique Grenier have always farmed organically and now they are certified Biodynamic as well, bringing the quality even higher at this wonderful small estate. 50 - 60% de-stemmed, aged 50% in vat, 50% in 2 to 10 year-old demi-muid and foudre. The 2020 "7 Lieus" is a more subtle and earthy wine than the very ripe 2019, showing pretty aromas of violet, black raspberry, plum, a bit smoky and backed with blood and mineral notes. The palate shows a classic Northern Rhone backbone of iron and earth flavors with red currant, black raspberry and black olive. The finish shows firm acidity, mineral flavors and sappy, lingering olive and berry fruit. This will improve with time in the cellar, but is delicious now as well for its authentic and old-fashioned Syrah character. David Lillie

Bonnefond 2018 Côte-Rôtie Rochain

The 2018 Bonnefond "Les Rochains" is 100% Syrah (oldest 1955) from full south facing 1 hectare on schist, mica schist soils on Les Rochains. the wine shows "dark red. The bouquet is firm, airs of tart, baked bread, red cherry, herbal notes. It will round out and offer potentially large aromas, deep raspberry in the mix. The palate holds well entrenched content, has a beating heart, is solid, grounded with touches of mineral towards the finish. It sustains well, is nourishing, extended, a little scaled. It’s very complete, carries Pinot hints." (drinkrhone.com) Delicious as a young wine, this can be cellared for another 20 years.

Clos du Joncuas 2019 Séguret La Garancière Rouge

70% Grenache with Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre, grown in sandy soils near Gigondas, always farmed organically, hand harvested, whole-cluster wild yeast fermentation, aged in cement vat, un-fined, unfiltered. The 2019 shows a bright garnet/black color with aromas of plum and violet that segue into tart cherry and raspberry. The palate shows nice density of lovely cherry and berry fruits that are bright and lively but nicely ripe and concentrated as well. Serve cool with grilled foods this spring and summer or with a pork stew or Morrocan tagine. Delicious now but will benefit from 3 - 5 years of cellaring.

Creve Coeur (Pablo Hocht) 2020 Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet

This blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mouvedre comes from old vines in “Le Planis,” planted just after the Second World War in the Southern Rhone. Creve Coeur’s Pablo Hocht created the Domaine in 2010, with a commitment to organic and Biodynamic farming. His recent vintages have been rich and ripe: just what one wants in Southern Rhone red. The wine undergoes a four-week whole-cluster vinification with wild yeasts followed by 12 months in used barrels. An inky delight in the glass, the aromatics are hedonistic and bold, full of black fruit, olive and smoke. The palate opens up to a generous gift of cassis, dried fruit, mint, and black pepper. The grippy tannins provide a good energy to the minerals at play, and it gives a peak into what this wine will look like in a few years’ time. Surprisingly structured so perfect with grilled meat, tagines, reblochon or other soft cheeses.

The young Pablo Hocht makes beautiful wines at his Biodynamic estate in Seguret (southern Rhone) - his "Rosé du Coucou" is a  refreshing direct-press rosé made with  old vines of 60% Grenache and 40% Cinsault. The 2021 shows a very pale rose skin color with floral aromas of raspberry, peach, citrus and stone. The palate is very light, silky and elegant with subtle raspberry fruit with hints of melon, orange rind, spice and earth, finishing with nice length of mineral flavors and refreshing acidity. This is a very lovely wine at a great price!

Gour de Chaulé 2015 Gigondas Cuvée Tradition

The 2015 Gour de Chaulé shows an attractive red robe, has lustre. The bouquet rests on an elegant offer of neat, fresh raspberry fruit, with blackberry touches behind, has a little smoky spice and menthol as well. It shows the coolness of Gigondas. The palate is still tight, but clearly defined. This serves a snappy glass, finesse over power. The Grenache is a pure contributor, and gives it its heart. The finish is dark, tarry still, with a little increase in depth from its cool tannins. This is a wine of terroir, authentic Gigondas that gives access to the feel of the place. The cool close invites a second glass. (DrinkRhone)

Paris, Vincent 2018 Cornas La Geynale

"Syrah 85% from the top of La Genale, plus part of the lower end, includes plenty of 1910 Syrah, 10-15% Tézier (1992), 80-85% whole bunch fermentation, 1 week cool maceration, 4 week vinification, wild yeasts, pumping overs, cap punching, aged 2-10 year oak casks 12-14 months, casks assembled 4 weeks before bottling, fined, unfiltered,   The bouquet carries a floral-violet hover over some generous, sweet-noted, notably ripe black berry fruits. The palate is also well scented, combines that with a note of iron, and stewed black fruits, prunes on the table. This carries the warm rays of the year in its supple constitution, is a ripe Cornas with inner notes of complexity. It has good, lip smacking length, will drink young, given its ripeness. From spring 2021, but there’s more variety to come if you wait beyond that, obviously, drink until 2042."  Drink Rhone  (Note: This is from the first bottling, December 2019)

Pierre Andre 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

(Pre-Arrival) The 2020 Pierre André Blanc is an extraordinary Châteauneuf-du-Pape from an extraordinary estate - organic since 1980 (one of the first in the AOC) and Biodynamic since 1992.  The blend is now approximately 50-60% Bourboulenc and 40-50% old-vine Clairette (planted in the 1920s) grown on sandy soils in the lieu-dits of "Saint-Georges," "Etang" and "les Bédines," giving a wine that accentuates the beautiful minerality brought by the terroir and the superb farming. From drinkrhone: "fine yellow robe; the nose is going to be elegant, stylish, has a very trim aroma of pear, apricot, a hint of white pepper clarity. The palate is also right on the money in its finesse, backed by a poised level of gras, all in order. It finishes with notes of aniseed de Marseille, greengage plum, the definition good. It’s a superior Ch du Pape blanc, carries garrigue tones, very good à table. It’s delightful, genuine. There’s more to come, too. It should be decanted." Drink over the next 15 years.

Alto Landon 2020 Manchuela Mil Historias Amber Wine

This blend from Manchuela is mostly Garnacha Blanca (Grenache Blanc) with a "splash" of Muscat. Even a splash is enough to lend subtle floral/perfumed aromatics, but thankfully it is not overly aromatic. On the palate, it is all stone fruit, between light and medium bodied for a white, with fresh acidity and nice cut. The skins are left to macerate with the juice during fermentation, for about 2 weeks. Technically an "Amber Wine," as it states on the label, this is on the lighter side of the orange wine spectrum, with nice dry texture fromt the skin contact. Perfect for Summer, and though it is snappy, it also has a bit of character so will still satisfy the poolside wine enthusiast.  -EL

Benito Santos 2021 Rias Baixas Albariño Saiar

Saiar is a certified organic vineyard of Albariño grown on granitic soils, named for the ancient church next to the vineyard. This wine is fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel tank and rests on the lees for a few months before bottling. Saiar shows intense aromas of citrus zest, jasmine tea, and orange blossoms and a dry, focused, mineral-driven palate. A classic with oysters and a stellar apéritif!

Can Majoral 2019 Pla i Llevant - Mallorca Butibalausi Negre

Can Majoral was the first certified organic estate in Mallorca, and they are among a small group of winemakers who are passionate about preserving local varieties. This medium-full bodied red is primarily made from the Callet grape, which is indigenous to Mallorca (it's possibly a cross between two other indigenous grapes, but the DNA is unique). The rest of the wine is filled out with Syrah, Tempranillo and Montanegro. Though I usually prefer fresh light bodied reds, there are times when the mood calls for something a bit more supple and generous, with black fruit and richness. Butibalausi delivers just that, and with so much elegance and finesse! The tannins are very integrated and subtle, making this a very easy wine to drink, even though it is ripe and full bodied.  Black berries, leather, soil... highly recommended!  -EL

Celler del Roure 2020 Valencia Cullerot Blanco

Celler del Roure is making very interesting wines  with local grape varieties in the Valencia area. Many of these old, indigenous varieties are largely forgotten and Cullerot highlights three of them (Verdil, Tortosina, and Merseguera) together with Pedro Ximénez, Macabeo, Malvasía,  and others. In addition to their focus on indigenous grape varieties, Celler del Roure is employing traditional vinifications methods: hand harvesting, fermenting with native yeasts in stone lagars, and aging in very old clay amphorae. Cullerot has a bit of skin contact, and is medium bodied with notes of stone fruit, tropical notes, apple skin, and clay-y minerality.  - Ben Fletcher

Guímaro 2020 Ribeira Sacra Tinto

Pedro Rodriguez is one of our favorite winemakers in Northwest Spain, and the wines from Guímaro are consistently interesting and exciting. This is the most approachable and affordable red wine from the estate, made with hand harvested grapes from precariously steep vineyards of mainly Mencía within the Ribeira Sacra appellation. Fermented and aged without exposure to oak, this wine is red fruited and almost juicy, balanced by bright, clean acidity and a deep mineral core. This is an appealing expression of Mencía, approachable and friendly to food. -Ben Fletcher

La Zafra 2019 Alicante Tinto 'Nuet' Monastrell

La Zafra is putting Alicante on the map, and crafting fresh, balanced wines from this hot and arid climate. Monastrell is the red grape here, otherwise known as Mourvedre in France. To me, a good Monastrell smells like roasted meat, leather, and hundreds of wild herbs, and this one delivers on every count. Thanks to the Mar and Ignacio's approach - they search for freshness by farming organically and doing short macerations - this is a wine with loads of character ("garrigue" comes to mind), that is a joy to drink.  A great middle ground between light and full bodied. As appropriate with a light chill and snacks as it is with grilled meat and BBQ  -EL

Bedrock 2021 California Ode to Lulu Rose

(Arrives 5/27) Bedrock Wine Company's Ode to Lulu Old Vine Rosé is a tribute to Lulu Peyraud, matriarch of the famed Bandol grower Domaine Tempier. It is comprised of old-vine Mataro/Mourvèdre from the Pato and Evangelho vineyards in Contra Costa County, as well as Cinsault and Grenache from Dry Creek. The rose is a pale peach skin/salmon pink. The nose offers pretty aromas of stone fruit, watermelon, and crushed savory herbs. The palate is juicy and mouthwatering with loads of fresh red fruits and a fine sapid core that recalls its famed inspiration Bandol Rosé, don't be fooled into thinking this is a "porch pounder," this will accompany that ripe tomato salad, tapenade crostini, ratatouille, or paella cooked over a fire, as well a quench a thirst. Lovely stuff and consistently one of our favorite Summer wines. John McIlwain
