Les Darons Languedoc...$13.99

A wine that blew me away was the 2014 Languedoc Les Darons by Jeff Carrel. Still in barrel, it offers thrilling notes of black and blue fruits, violets, and peppery spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless profile on the palate. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 10% Syrah that was fermented and aged all in concrete tank, it has striking purity, integrated acidity and a great finish. It should drink nicely on release and have 7-8 years of overall longevity.
Rated 91-94/100 The Wine Advocate

La Rousse Malbec...$9.99
The La Rousse Malbec is a silky, approachable Malbec with lush, soft tannins. The wine has nice deep purple color, and juicy blackberry, red licorice, and plum flavors. The delicious fruit flavors are accented by hints of coffee and tobacco, which add a bit of depth and complexity to the wine. The La Rousse Malbec is a wonderfully versatile red wine that can be paired with everything from barbeque, lamb, and a traditional casssoulet, to burgers and pizza.

Donati Claret Central Coast...$12.99
Our most popular wine, the 2012 Claret features aromas of ripe strawberry and cocoa with notes of cherry and cola on the finish. A real crowd pleaser.
47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 14% Malbec, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Leaping Horse Merlot....$9.99
Forget that is Merlot, this wine is a fantastic red wine that will shock you with its quality. Merlot is one of the classic varietals with its roots in Bordeaux (did you know that Petrus is made from 100% Merlot and is one of the most sought after and expensive wines in the world) It’s complex, fresh fruit flavors and smooth finish still make it a favorite for many red wine drinkers. Straight-forward in style, the Leaping Horse Merlot has violet and dark fruit aromas with pleasant plum, black cherry and a finish that seems to last forever. Mouth filling yet smooth, Leaping Horse has created an unpretentious wine that can pair with just about anything. Merlot is a very versatile red that works well with many types of meats. Try ours with roast turkey or chicken, grilled blackened salmon, meat sauced pasta dishes, pork, grilled vegetables or a steak salad.

2011 M de Monsegur Reserve Bordeaux - Cab Franc..$24.99
Les Vignerons Réunis de Monsegur 2011 M de Monségur Réserve Cabernet Franc (Bordeaux). Deep morello cherry color with broad fuschia rim. The youthful and forward, grapey nose is enhanced by notes of sous bois and crushed black raspberries. Short-grained and moderately firm tannins focus the palate with the help of buoyant acidity. The minerality is most pronounced on the medium finish."

Las Valles Red Tempranillo/Grenache..$6.99

This smooth, well-balanced red blend offers aromas of blackberries, blueberries and cassis, with intense fruit on the palate and a slightly peppery finish. Enjoy on its own, or paired with mild cheeses, simple pizza, pasta or red/white meat dishes, and more. The red is unoaked and is a great all purpose red wine.

Villa des Anges Cabernet Sauvignon...$9.99
Jacqueline Menard de Ginestous’s Beziers-based Espitalet des Anges – advised by oenologist Jeff Carrel – is responsible for the wines sold in the U.S. under the Villa des Anges label. A wine of great freshness, intensity and concentration. Well-structured, offering aromas of black cherries, with hints of red pepper and light, spicy cumin/coriander notes. Enjoy with a wide range of red meat and cheese dishes. Perfect for parties and everyday drinking.

Alfredo Roca Pinot Noir...$12.99
The Roca family has been producing wine in Mendoza for 4 generations, and currently farms 280+ acres in San Rafael, the southernmost province of Mendoza. At altitudes of 2,600 feet above sea level, Roca’s vineyards produce distinct, cool-climate wines of singular quality. Tasting Notes: Deep crimson color, with black cherry fruit aromas, and light floral, vanilla notes. Ripe and full-bodied on the palate, with delicate plum character and a long, lingering  finish. Serve With: Excellent with pizza and hearty pasta dishes, it will also stand up to red meats, grilled or stewed.

2013 Leaping Horse Red Blend....$9.99

Don't look before you leap. Pair your favorite dish with the perfect wine and step out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary. Live higher. Begin your adventure with Leaping Horse.
A leap into this gorgeous red blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah will delight your senses. From the dark red purple color and deep perfume of baked fruit pie and dark fruits you will journey into notes of jam and butter on warm toast ending in a balanced and beautiful full finish. A complement to any barbecue, especially one that includes steaks, chicken, and port or hearty pasta dish filled with fresh vegetables

Syrousse Red...$14.99
The 2011 Syrousse is composed of 70% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 10% [Carignan]. Revealing lots of blackberry, cassis, camphor and licorice characteristics as well as a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish, it should drink well for another 2-3 years.
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Le Cirque Rouge 13.99
Tasted from bottle, the 2013 Côtes Catalanes is a smoking blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Carignan. Aged all in tank and coming from 50-year-old vines, it has tons of black raspberry, kirsch, licorice and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, pure, polished style on the palate. It’s hard to resist now, and I see no reason to delay gratification. This will compete with 20-30 dollar southern Rhônes.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

2014 Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge....$11.99
Also terrific, the ruby/purple 2014 Côtes Catalanes (52% Grenache, 36% Carignan and the rest Syrah, aged all in tank) offers lots of kirsch and darker berry fruit, spring flowers, pepper and violet notes to go with a medium-bodied, supple, forward, lively feel. Like the 2013, this is a rocking value to drink over the coming couple of years.
