2020 Thistledown Gorgeous Old Vine Grenache...$16.99
Tasting Notes: Gorgeous deep garnet color. Bright aromatics and quite lifted on the nose with a beautifully layered, textural palate with notes of wild strawberry and spice.
Thistledown is not alone in their endeavors to make great Grenache, they are unique in their methods and it is for this reason that they are now unanimously considered to be Australia’s top Grenache specialist.
Rated 92/100 Ray Jordan, Australian Wine Writer

2016 Villa Saletta Chianti Superiore....$19.99
A fruity and fresh red with some herb, wet-earth and dark-berry character. Medium body. Crisp finish. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling
Grape Varieties: 94% Sangiovese, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon ,3% Merlot
only 3,000 case made
The Chianti opens with a ruby red colour with violet tinges. It has a full, intense aroma, which recalls floral and red fruit notes. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, smooth, and well balanced with a complex consistency, with hints of violets, cherries and vanilla. This blend is well fused with smoky sensations. On the palate, it shows the characteristic
intensity of Sangiovese, tannins that boast suppleness in their texture, and a vibrant, dynamic freshness.

2018 Hierogram Lodi Zinfandel...$12.99 / 750ml
Solidly built and fruity without seeming sweet, this full-bodied wine combines concentrated flavors with a firm structure of fine-grained tannins and supportive acidity. Light oak touches add interest, but the wine's power and appeal come from bold varietal-fruit flavors.
60% New American Oak, aged for 15 months
Concentrated and complex, this full-bodied wine overflows with ripe berries, black-pepper and beef aromas that continue in the generous flavors. A big broad mouthfeel, full body and mild tannins all add to an impression of richness.

2018 Château Croix d'Aumedes Cuvée Réserve Corbières...$14.99
30% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 40% Carignan
The vast Corbières zone in the Languedoc contains a little bit of everything, from classic warmth and generosity on the outskirts of Narbonne to wild mountain wines in the hinterland and concentrated, stony wines up on the border with the Agly Valley and the Roussillon. In a way, this blend of Carignan (a great Corbières speciality) with Syrah and Grenache brings all three styles together: flowers and fruit in the billowing, sweet-scented aromas and both generous fruits and something more stony and driving in the finely constructed palate. The tannins are present but unintimidating, and the acidity is unobtrusive and ripe. So easy to drink that you almost overlook those complexities -- but they'll keep you coming back for more.
Rated 97/100 Decanter Magazine

2018 Intrinsic Columbia Red Blend...$18.99
Each variety is fermented on the other’s skins in a twist of technique. The swagger here is palpable and the deep dark berries are laced with flowers and delivered in pure, unadulterated form. So good! A blend of 51% malbec and 49% cabernet franc. Drink now.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2018 Casas del Bosque Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva....$12.99

Wood treatment: 100% French Oak
Deep red with a purple hue. Aromas reminiscent of black cherries, raspberries, mint and tobacco are complemented with notes of vanilla and mocha from the French oak barrels the wine was aged in. This Cabernet Sauvignon is lively and fresh, with supple tannins and excellent length.
Effusively minty, with freshly crushed red fruit and spice flavors that feature crisp acidity. Dark chocolate notes show on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. - Wine Spectator
