Amazing Values!!!

We always love a good deal but more than that we love passing along the savings! This week we scored some great bargains that we are excited to share.

2014 El Coto Imaz Riserva Rioja $9.99
(next lowest price on-line is $17.99)
Light and crisp, this graceful red delivers cherry, berry, leafy and loamy earth flavors in a supple texture, with light tannins and orange peel acidity that give way to a spicy finish. Drink now through 2024.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling

NV Berlucci Cuvee 61 Sparkling Rose $19.99
(next lowest price on-line is $34.99)
A delicate pink color sets the stage for feminine aromas of pink rose, yeasty baked bread, small berries, savory forest and pine nut nuances. A fresh citrus note brings life to the finish and helps to enhance the wine's sharp and lively perlage.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Enthusiast
The NV Franciacorta '61 Brut Rosé (disgorged in 2017) represents a nicely balanced blend of 60% Pinot Nero and 40% Chardonnay aged in the bottle on the lees for 24 months. Some 140,000 bottles were produced. This is a delicate but festive wine that shows a steady succession of small berry, lilac and floral aromas. There's a refreshing kick of acidity on the close.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2011 Schloss Vollrads Riesling Auslese.....$14.99  / 375ml
(next lowest price on-line is in Germany $29.54)
Features plenty of minerality, with a vibrant array of well-cut white fruit flavors. Rich and luxurious, yet airy at midpalate, offering a lithe finish of apple pastry and apricot tart. Drink now through 2040
