2011 Fritz Haag, Brauneberger Kabinett $21.99 (Germany)
Oliver Haag’s wines are the very definition of great steep slope Mosel Riesling. They are elegant, racy, stylish, and really really slurpable! Low alcohol and slightly sweet they are irresistible. Brauneberger Kabinett is a blend of wines from both Juffer and Juffer Sonnenuhr sites. A lively green apple and strawberry nose, deep minerality, perfect Mosel and a very affordable price. Don’t miss it!
2011 Donnhoff Hermannshohle Grosses Gewachs $59.99 (Germany)
This is Donnhoff’s Grand Cru wine, made from one of Germany’s very best vineyards by one of her best producers. “The best since the legendary 2005, and the best dry Riesling I’ve yet tasted from Germany. Ridiculous delineation and spice; world class doesn’t begin to describe it; intricacy, a kinetic mélange of dough, fruit, mineral; brilliant but effortless, a virtuoso playing within her ability a fiendishly difficult piece. Searching, endless finish. This I think is the result of Helmut’s larger holdings in this site-the ability to select with utmost care, and to make a being like this.” – Terry Theise (Very Limited)
2010 Philippe Portier Quincy Blanc (Loire Valley) WAS $18.99, NOW $14.99
Between the city of Tour to the east and 50 kilometers west of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume is the appellation of Quincy. It is in this region, in the small village of Brinay, that third generation winemaker Philippe Portier farms his 30 acres of vineyards. Like Sancerre & Pouilly Fume, Quincy white wines are made solely from Sauvignon Blanc. It is clear that the wines possess exotic fruit and a wave of tropical flavors. The nose leaps out of the glass, bursting with bright candied citrus and pineapple aromas. This is a wine to discover and enjoy with a myriad of foods.
2009 Masi Passo Doble Tupungato Red (Argentina)
WAS $13.99, NOW $9.99
“Briar and wild herb notes accent the racy plum and blackberry fruit in this medium-bodied red, as hints of tar and tobacco chime in on the solid finish.” – Wine Spectator
2010 Domaine la Colliere Cotes du Rhone Villages Rasteau WAS $19.99, NOW $15.99 (S. France)
91-93 Points Robert Parker: “The intense opaque purple-colored 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau is loaded with black fruit, licorice, smoked meat and melted chocolate aromas. Full-bodied with surprisingly civilized tannins for a Rasteau, this finesse-styled 2010 should drink nicely for 10-12 years.”
2010 Mas de Boislauzon Cotes du Rhone Villages (S. France)
WAS $18.99, NOW $15.99
“Mas de Boislauzon’s Cotes du Rhone- Villages is always one of the finest of the area, and the 2010 is a big time sleeper of the vintage. Lots of plum, balsamic, cassis and black cherry jam aromas are followed by a lavishly fruity, silky textured, full-bodied red to drink over the next 3-4 years. This is a winner!” 90 Points Robert Parker
2010 Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape (S. France)
WAS $59.99, NOW $49.99
92 Points Robert Parker: “A sensational effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits jammy black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, camphor, incense and hits of truffles as well as pepper. With velvety tannins, abundant glycerin, a nicely delineated mouthfeel, a sumptuous texture and a long finish, this 2010 should drink well for 12-15+ years.”
2006 Finca Villacreces Ribera del Duero (Spain) WAS $34.99, NOW $29.99
94 Points Wine Advocate: “The purple- colored 2006 Tinto is made up of 86% Tempranillo and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 16 months in French oak. The nose displays a brooding aromatic array of Asian spices, damp earth, mineral, blackberry, and violets. Dense and stacked on the palate, the wine is still a bit tightly wound and will benefit from 4-6 years of additional cellaring. Incipiently complex and exceptionally lengthy…”
2004 Vina Haras de Pirque Albis, Maipo Valley (Chile)
WAS $56.99, NOW $29.99
“Quite dark, with plenty of bittersweet cocoa and fig sauce notes laid over a meaty palate of dark currant, blackberry, briar and melted licorice. The long, loamy finish lets hints of dark olive and tobacco peek in. Pulls no punches, in a classic Maipo style. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère.” – Wine Spectator 90 Points
2009 Langoa Barton St Julien (Bordeaux) WAS $74.99, NOW $59.99
93 Points Wine Spectator: “Very dense and still rather reserved, with dark blueberry, blackberry and fig notes rolled together, framed by freshly brewed espresso and Black Forest cake notes. Long and tarry through the finish, with a melted licorice snap note hanging on at the very end.”
