2015 "Colombulle" Rosé Methode Ancestrale (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, "Colombulle" Rosé Methode Ancestrale, Southwest, France 2015

{organic} 100% Négrette

RASPBERRY & WHITE PLUM, BREEZY SPARKLE, A TOUCH OF GRAPEFRUIT

Philipe and Diane Cauvin have essentially bridled the finicky Négrette grape into graceful submission with their catalogue of wines that seem to improve with each passing vintage. This is their newest offering, a delectably refreshing "petnat" sparkling rosé with pretty mousse that evaporates gracefully on the palate. A touch of ruby red grapefruit aroma adds serious depth. Great stuff. (slight sediment from the natural fermentation in bottle is harmless)

Serving Suggestions: Breakfast? I mean, you shouldn’t drink wine before noon, even on a Sunday, but seriously pair this with breakfast foods.

2014 "La Cuadrilla" (Stolpman Vineyards)

{organic} 80% Syrah, 12% Sangiovese, 8% Grenache

BLACK CHERRY, HERBS & PEPPERY SPICE, CHOCOLATE

Santa Ynez Valley's Stolpman focuses largely on the grapes of France's Rhone Valley. In fact, one of the estate's vineyards is a life-sized monument to Cote Rotie. Less massive than some of the estate's signature wines but still with plenty of meat on its bones, this powerful Italo-Franco Cali red is very satisfying. All profits of this wine at Stolpman go to their full-time vineyard crew.

Serving Suggestion: Spicy and sweet Bourbon pepper steak with crispy frites seasoned with rosemary. Silky and rich, this also makes for a cozy and comforting cocktail wine on its own.

2015 "Red Sheep" Red (Schafer, Weingut)

Weingut Schäfer, "Red Sheep" Rotwein Feinherb, Mettenheim, Rheinhessen, Germany 2015

40% Dornfelder, 40% Portugieser, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

PLUSH, SMOOTH & SOFT. LIGHTLY SWEET BERRIES.

"Schäfer" translates from German to "shepherd" in English, so it's only right that this wine is the ultra-rare red sheep. It is flocking delicious! It's wooly, wooly good. All puns aside, this is that rarest of combinations, the highly complex, but enjoyably soft, lightly sweet red. Made in miniscule quantities by Rheinhessen red wine specialist Volker Schäfer, it's especially at home with spicy, rich dishes. But drinking it on its own is also highly recommended.

Serving Suggestions: Lamb vindaloo. 3 alarm chili. Sauteed mushrooms in a sweet Marsala cream sauce.

10 Year Tawny Port (Smith Woodhouse)

Smith Woodhouse, 10 Year Tawny Port, Duoro, Portugal, NV

Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional

PINKISH AMBER COLOR, FIGS, DRIED FRUITS, WARMING

Sourcing from the small 7 hectare vineyard of Quinta da Madalena, all the grapes are still hand harvested and foot tread. In general their ports are a bit less sweet than most. This 10 year tawny is the result of a small selection of port set aside each year to age for at least 10 years before bottling. The color is a pinkish-amber with fig and toffee aromas and flavors. A delicious dried fruit tawny that gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling all over.

Serving Suggestions: With hard milder cheeses like our aged Rogue Cheddar with dried fruits and nuts, or as part of dessert with cheesecake, flan, or creme brulée.

2015 Aglianico Roccamonfina IGT (Foglia i Vignali, Poderi)

Poderi Foglia, Aglianico "Roccamonfina IGT", Campania, Italy 2015

100% Aglianico

BRIGHT BLACK CHERRY, EXOTIC FLORAL NUANCES, BOLD & HIGHLY DISTINCTIVE

Aglianico is a grape famously described as the "Nebbiolo of the south." Typically, this refers more to a parallel in quality and ageworthiness than to any notable similarity or similar strength shared by the two grapes. This Aglianico, however, exhibits an elevated "prettiness" and firm elegance that we're quick to associate with its northern colleague. Still as eruptive as the volcanic soil in which it's grown but less brooding and bestial than many examples of the grape, this northern Campanian delicacy hails from very close to the birthplace of Roman antiquity's most revered wine, Falernian.

Serving Suggestion: Stuffed rustic pizza w/ buffalo mozzarella, diced pancetta, basil, black olives, & halved grape tomatoes. Japanese-style grilled beef tongue w/ onion, fried eggplant, & shiitakes.

2014 Aglianico del Vulture "Sacravite" (D'Angelo)

D'Angelo, "Sacravite" Aglianico, Basilicata, Italy 2014

100% Aglianico

GENEROUS BERRY, SMOKY MINERAL, LEATHERY RUSTICITY

In the northern reaches of Basilicata, at the base of the extinct volcano, Monte Vulture, D'Angelo produces distinctive, definitive Aglianico. Not content to be simply "old world" in style, this wine is perhaps "ancient world." Darkly intriguing and terroir-driven, the "Sacravite," will slowly draw you into its clutches with aromas of dried black fruits, graphite, and horse. D'Angelo practically defines Aglianico! Volcanic soils and southerly warmth yield a wine ready to drink today and intent upon indulging the drinker with truly distinctive southern Italian tasting flair.

Serving Suggesiton: Ethiopian cuisine. Perfect for pizzas covered with strong, flavorful cheeses and sausage (preferably w/ fennel & Pepperoncino). Peppery stewed lamb w/ potatoes, onions, & bay leaves.

2016 Albarino (Laxas)

Laxas, Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2016

100% Albarino

TROPICAL AROMATICS, AWESOME MINERALITY, CRISP PEAR FINISH

Fresh, juicy, very dry, and full of minerally terroir, this Albariño from the Laxas (la-shas) winery is first class - produced from old vines in the more oceanic reaches of western Galicia. This white shows an Atlantic saline-like quality which renders it positively delicious with seafood, and the melon, pear, and mineral notes are almost like a meal in themselves. Finishing with impressive length, richness, and a bit of banana essence, this is serious Albariño for the money.

Serving Suggestion:

In Spain they would eat gooseneck barnacles, but here in the US we're more than happy to pair this with nearly any great shellfish, especially mussels will be perfect.

Albariño takes its name from the idea that its a native of Germany (hence Alba-Riño “white of the Rhein”), but we now know it to be native to this stretch of northwestern Iberia.

CITRUS & PIÑA COLADA, ZESTY MINERAL 

Fresh, bright, and delicate with firm acidity and beautifully restrained minerality, this crazy-great value in Albariño from Manuel Mendez’s Rias Baixas estate (one of three small farms operated by the gregarious Galician) offers up everything we crave from the increasingly sought-after Albariño grape. Its citrusy energy is the stuff that seafood-pairing dreams are made of, but this is also a “patio wine” extraordiaire that is guaranteed to quench the thirsts of festive friends and cause oceanic oases to materialize before our very eyes and across our very palates!

Serving Suggestion: Mussels, shrimp, and squid in a buttery, garlicky stew w/ oregano & noodles. Veggie burritos w/ mild salsa verde & cilantro.

100% Albariño

PASSION FRUIT & PEACH, FRESH & REFRESHINGLY ZIPPY

The Sacramento Valley, with its hot days and nighttime sea breezes, might just be the best place in California to grow Albariño. The heat brings out intensely vibrant tropical fruit, citrus zest, and white peach, while the cool nights give rise to the lively acidity that makes Albariño so refreshing. It ain't the rainy plains of Spain, but it ain't far off - the winery is right near Interstate 5, part of California's Historic Mission Trail.

Serving Suggestion:

A bounty of briny seafood - raw oysters, steamed crab legs, & clam chowder. On the patio on a balmy summer night, listening to cicadas & katydids and looking up at the stars.

Antão Vaz, a native of these hot, arid, southern Portuguese climes, is an intriguing specialist at retaining a refreshingly racy edge in spite of sweltering temperatures.

BLACKBERRY & PEPPER, FINE TANNINS, CLAY-LIKE HINTS

This is a truly exciting find for its bold, flavorful generosity and depth.

PINEAPPLE & PEAR, CITRUSY MINERAL ZEST, KISS O' BANANA

Albariño can still be your favorite Spanish white, but it originates just south of the border in Portugal’s Minho (the Vinho Verde region). Alvarinho, as it is known here, is partially responsible for the fresh, fizzy stuff that that we associate with the region’s best-known wines, but it can also be resplendently restrained and mineralistic or fleshy, full-bodied, and brimming with tropical assertiveness. This offering luxuriously leans toward the latter option.

Serving Suggestion: Citrus-marinated grilled squid tacos. Pineapple-anchovie pizza w/ diced crimini mushrooms & ricotta – gifts from the sea & from the forest...

Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella

COLA, LEATHER, BLACK PEPPER, FIGS, RAISINS

An exceptional Amarone value, the Corte Majoli is made using the traditional method of drying the grapes to raisins, then pressing said raisins to extract their sweet goodness. Then it's fermented dry and yields a powerful red with rich aromas and flavors. The alcohol is elevated, as is normal for an Amarone, and the intensity goes to 11 on the 1 to 10 scale. This hearty red shows the fruit of Corvina, but also the classic Italian meaty earth tones typical of classic Amarone.

BLACK CHERRY PRESERVES & MISSION FIG, PORT-LIKE INTENSITY

It can be lonely at the top, and Amarone is almost completely unique in the world of dry red wines. Made from the concentrated nectar of half-dried grapes, it accounts for some of the densest, most decadent oenological experiences possible. Clocking in at 16% alcohol (not atypical), this beautiful beast owes its imposing stature and luxurious lushness not only to the Amarone process but to low yields, old vines, and the presence of local but lesser-used powerhouse grape Corvinone. Bellissimo e nerissimo!

Serving Suggestion: Rare, chargrilled sirloin w/ bourbon glaze & roasted sweet potato & kale. Sheep’s milk & blue cheeses w/ pan-seared figs & balsamic reduction.

Americano Bianco (Aperitivo) (Cocchi, Giulio)

Giulio Cocchi, Americano Bianco (Aperitivo), Piemonte, Italy NV

Moscato & Herbs (Gentian, Cinchona & Citrus)

16.5% ABV

Giulio Cocchi's original recipe Americano is more than just a simple aperitif in the town of Asti - in fact, it is the aperitif by definition, a piece of this century's local cultural and gastronomic history. This is the original Americano, produced without a break since 1891 according to an entirely natural recipe: white wine aromatized with many herbs and spices, no artificial coloring, flavoring or additive of any kind.

It is produced in limited quantities and matured for a year before being put on sale. The new bottle in that form of the classic clear glass Bordeaux shape is designed to be show the aperitif's natural origins as a wine, quite different to other inventive aperitifs based on alcohol.

Serve chilled in a tumbler or in an appropriate glass with a twist of orange peel and if desired, ice cubes. A splash of soda is indispensable to make the full aroma and perfume come out at their best. This is the classic way to serve it, as preferred by the "purists" who have known this drink forever. Outside of Italy it is revered as one of last great blanc/bianco aperitif wines, essential to a wide range of classic mixed drinks.

So perfectly tangy and refreshing, with a satisfyingly soft bitterness. We're smitten.

BRIGHT CHERRY, FRESH HERBS, SILKY AND CRISP

Cabernet Franc is a key player in illustrious Bordeaux blends like Saint-Emilion, and the solo star of the Middle Loire in villages like Chinon and Saumur as well as the less famous Anjou Rouge. Lighter and brighter than their more complex and expensive neighbors, these wines often fall into a fun category the French call “vins de soif.” Literally translated “wines of thirst,” these are the bottles whose sublime simplicity keeps you reaching across the table for another pour all night long. Phillipe and Sylvie Cady’s Anjou Rouge is translucently ruby with Cabernet Franc's telltale savory herb character and tangy cherry notes keep you refreshed. You can even throw a slight chill on this one in the heat of the summer.

If you've not yet discovered Arinto and the other wonderful grapes of Portugal, now is the time!

Serving Suggestion: Creamy goat cheeses, almonds, & dried fruit. Southern fried chicken or crab cakes w/ cornbread.

Domaine Sigalas, Asirtiko/Athiri, Santorini, Greece 2015

75% Asiritiko, 25% Athiri

CITRUS, PEAR, LIGHT SALINE, BALANCED & CRISP

Domaine Sigalas was founded in 1991 by Paris Sigalas, Christos Markozane and Yiannis Toundas.

The winery farms 19 hectares with local varieties and produces quality wines with unique terroir of the volcanic island. These vines average 50 years old planted in black lava soil. The result is a light mineral with lemon and quince citrus flavors. Aromatic with moderate acidity and no oak.

2013 Bairrada Reserva (São Domingos, Caves do Solar de)

Caves do Solar de São Domingos, Bairrada Reserva, Portugal 2013

40% Baga, 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz

FIRM PRUNE, WALNUT & LEATHER, SMOKE & EARTH

Baga, a sturdy black grape with firm tannin and a reputation for ageworthiness hasn't perhaps found its way onto the radar of the average American wine lover just yet, but it's nevertheless part of Iberia's dream team of outstanding and exclusive grape varietals. Complex, rustic, and somewhat anachronistic in its untamed, earthy disposition yet in possession of the wisdom and elegance that can only come with maturity, this wine helps us get our Baga fix and offers an ideal introduction to the grape and its northern Portuguese homeland, Bairrada.

Serving Suggestions: Generously marbled skirt steak & broiled potatoes w/ parsley & chives. Burritos w/ black refried beans, puréed sweet potato, garlic, cilantro, & sour cream.

Quinta do Encontro, Tinto, Bairrada, Portugal 2014

80% Baga, 20% Merlot

BLACK CURRANT FRUIT, LIGHT SPICE, INTENSE FLAVORS

Baga, the primary grape of Bairrada, is known for powerful wines with sometimes tongue-drying tannins. This beauty from Encontro tempers that rustic character with a small addition of Merlot and fully ripened Baga that accentuates its lush, raisiny character. Don't be afraid - this is an exquisite wine that tastes twice as expensive and shows what can happen when wild grapes are in the hands of a skilled winemaker.

Serving Suggestion: This is a big wine that needs some hearty cuisine, heavy on the protein and low on sweetness. Steak makes sense.

{organic} 76% Mourvedre, 16% Grenache, 8% Syrah, Cinsault, & Carignan

CASSIS & RAISIN. EARTHY SAGE & LEATHER

Known as the greatest red of Provence, Bandol Rouge is made primarily from the bold Mourvedre grape, which lends the wines their power and frequently rustic edge. Sometimes, they can be so rich as to seem a bit harsh, but that isn't the case here. While this example has the typical, classical hallmarks of Bandol, it's perfectly balanced with ripe flavors of dried fruit which renders the tannin less obtrusive and the wine's earthy majesty more accessible.

Castello di Verduno is on a roll! We've had a hard time with this historic estate over the last few years.

As elegant, aromatic and serious as you'd like, but ready to drink now and for the next decade.

This is a single vineyard Barbaresco with just 585 cases produced annually.

Brightly colored with floral aromas, dried cherry, sweet spices - like close and anise - and just a touch of marzipan and oak on the finish. These are just a few of the nuances you'll find inside.

Barbera "Minerva 240" (Vino Rosso) (Saccoletto, Azienda Agricola Vitivinicola Daniele)

Azienda Agricola Daniele Saccoletto, Barbera "Minerva 240," Piemonte, Italy NV

{organic} 100% Barbera

BLACK CHERRY & CASSIS, EXQUISITE BALSAMICO, JASMINE INCENSE

Signor Daniele Saccoleto solidified his path toward passionate viticulture four decades ago as a grape grower who leased vineyards in order to hone his craft. Purchasing land and gradually updating his winemaking facilities, he eventually emerged as the vigneron that he is today - a humble iconoclast who refuses to compromise quality in the name of familiarity or comfortable mediocrity. His priorities find him working outside of the Italian authorities’ system of pedigrees, and this is a bruiser of a Barbera – albeit an elegantly complex one. Foresty black fruit reveals the ethereal perfumes of bergamot and bittersweet incense. Captivating...

Serving Suggestion: Salumi spread w/ cheeses like robiola & fontina. Wintery leek salad w/ boiled fingerling potatoes, peppery arugula, garlic, beet, & balsamic vinegar.

With characteristic piquancy adding a little zing to the mix, this gratifying Barbera goes down like warm spice cake and fruit compote. This wine is serious, and seriously delicious, but it goes down oh so easy!

2015 Barbera d'Alba "Rinaldi" (Abbona, Marziano)

100% Barbera

BLACKBERRY & MULLBERRY, WILD & WOODSY, INTEGRATED TOAST & SILKY TANNIN

Barbera, among the most widely recognized and popular denizens of Italy’s northwestern vineyards (and, currently, the most quantitatively important), is both a bit of an enigma and a bit of a chameleon. Uncertainty surrounds the grape’s origins, and throughout its Piemontese range, we find a broad spectrum of styles which it can assume. This example from Abbona sets our Barbara scale’s needle dancing erratically. It’s dense, dark, and brooding with black fruit and foresty, rustic charm.

Serving Suggestion: Roast duck legs w/ caraway seeds & red cabbage. Hearty Russian crepes w/ sour cream & sautéed, coarsely-chopped chanterelles w/ garlic.

Cantina Sant' Evasio represents modern winemaking from long standing traditions. The name comes from the chapel on the hill built in the 18th century, later destroyed in WWII. Barbera is their trademark grape and continues to represent outstanding value in today's times. This version from the town of Asti, is a deeply colored, bright red wine showing classic black cherry fruit with light ash, juniper berry and classic flavors.

Matteo and Luca Garberoglio are the genial, laid-back fellows behind the 85 year-old Carussin estate, where they spend their days brewing beer and hanging out with donkeys. Oh, and making incredible wine. This powerful Barbera is an homage to the noble donkey, the raising of which has been a passion for Matteo and Luca's mother Bruna for decades. Mostly complex, leathery red fruit reminiscent of a glaze or reduction, the wine gains a bit of edginess while remaining juicy, gulpable, and all around delightful. Get your donkey on!

2014 Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanìn" (La Casaccia)

La Casaccia, Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanìn", Piemonte, Italy 2014

{organic} 100% Barbera

LUSH BLACKBERRY, SUBTLY PETILLANT, HAZELNUT & FUR

So many of our newer Italian offerings come with a story, and this is no exception. La Casaccia translated roughly to "ruined house" (we originally heard a decisively less kind translation), and Giovanni Rava does apparently go about making his wines in an atmosphere of magisterial decrepitude. There's nothing ramshackle about this beautifully complex and structured Barbera though; it's built like the proverbial brick...uh...wine cellar. Rich threads of blackberry and traditional prickle weave with that great Piemontese woodsy herbalosity to form a solid braid of intoxicating aroma and flavor.

Serving Suggestions: Flank steak sandwich with steak out of the fridge from last night. Whip up some garlic mayo and serve with red onion on a slipper-soft ciabatta. That's a proper builder's lunch.

Azienda Agricola Marchesini Marcello, Bardolino Chiaretto Classico, Veneto, Italy 2016

Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara

RIPE STRAWBERRY & RASPBERRY, TURKISH DELIGHT, EXOTIC PERFUME

In the Early 1950’s, Plinio Marchesini began humbly making wine on the east bank of Lake Garda in his Bardolino vineyards. His earliest wines were originally meant to be enjoyed with his close friends. However, in the 1990’s, he passed the reins over to his son, Marcello, who has since garnered much acclaim for his Chiaretto, the celebrated local style of rosato. Ethereal flavors of fresh strawberries, raspberries, honey, and rosewater are followed by a faint suggestion of salinity on the finish.

Serving Suggestion: Pistachio-crusted grilled striped bass w/ a watermelon basil salad & sautéed summer squash.

When many people first think of Papua New Guinea, they think of a remote, diverse, beautiful, yet strange place, and, we admit, Papua new Guinea is all those things.

This year,Counter Culture focused even more on small, meticulously sorted lots of coffee from different times of the harvest, and it won't disappoint.

Then a traditional, longer fermentation, aging in oak foudre and bottling with no filtration, and without adding any sulfites, in most vintages. It is as natural a Beaujolais as one could have had in a café in Lyon in the 40's.

Then a traditional, longer fermentation, aging in oak foudre and bottling with no filtration, and without adding any sulfites, in most vintages. It is as natural a Beaujolais as one could have had in a café in Lyon in the 40s.

Serving Suggestions: Turkey of course, while it's still fresh tasting, but also a rustic pate, with cornichons and coarse mustard.

2016 Beaujolais-Villages Rosé (Grandes Bruyères, Domaine des)

Domaine des Grandes Bruyeres, Beaujolais-Villages Rosé, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France 2016

{organic} 100% Gamay

CHERRY & GREEN STRAWBERRY, LEMON, FENNEL & RADISH SPICE

This lovely rosé pours ballet slipper pink and dances out of the glass with bright, underripe fruit aromas and a spicy herb freshness. One of four selections that we currently (and exclusively for the Southeastern US) offer from Bruyères, a fiercely naturalistic producer. Small and situated across 20 acres just south of Brouilly, smack in the center of the greater Beaujolais region, Jean-Pierre Teissèdre's estate is continuously blowing us away with value and sheer deliciousness.

Serving Suggestion: Arugula salad with strawberries, poppyseed dressing, and goat cheese.

2016 Beaujolais-Villages Rosé "Vintage" (Gauthier, Laurent)

Laurent Gauthier, Beaujolais-Villages Rosé "Vintage", Beaujolais, France 2016

100% Gamay

WILD STRAWBERRY, FRESH & AROMATIC, SUMMER FUN TIMES

First of all, this bottle is awesome. It looks like something my parents would drink in the back of an AMC Gremlin on the way to a Fleetwood Mac concert somewhere around 1973. Oddly enough, Gauthier’s own website describes this wine as “full of Nostalgy [sic]”. But joking aside, this is a fantastically early-blooming addition to our Rosé Garden, full of vibrant strawberry and white cherry fruit with a deeply satisfying texture. Grab your sweetie and crank up the eight track.

Serving Suggestions: Perfect with any array of cheese and charcuterie! Make sure you accompany it with warm sun, good friends, and classic rock.

Grandes Bruyères is a small estate in the heart of the Beaujolais region just south of the cru Brouilly, farmed and run by Jean-Pierre Teissedre and his family since 1900.

{sustainable} 100% Gamay (80+ year old vines)

CHERRY & RASPBERRY, FENNEL & AMARO SPICE, SUPPLE & EXOTIC, HINT OF CEDAR

Fragrant! Aromatic! Floral! Baking Spices! Vermouth! Did we mention it smells good? Prestigious, even! If you're new to Gamay, you'll find that it can press the bounds between engaging in an epicurean experience and discovering a new dimension to one's olfactory!  One might think that this wine grew straight into Ninth Street Flowers from Spice Bazaar. Truth is, the cuvée "Prestige" comes from 30 rolling acres of organically farmed Burgundian earth and aged in oak to profound result. Its mouth-filling lushness couples with a grippy tannic structure to such an elegant effect. Yet, somehow it maintains an unbearable lightness of being... unbearable due only to the fact that they can't fit more than five glasses in a bottle!

Chateau la Raz, Bergerac Blanc Sec, Southwest, France, 2015

{sustainable} 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Semillon, 20%Muscadelle

CLEMENTINE, WHITE FLOWERS, RICH BUT SQUEAKY CLEAN

The Barde family of Chateau Le Raz have been in Bergerac for over 400 years.  Over those centuries, the wines of Bergerac have gone from one of France's most prized exports to gems hidden in the shadow of their famous neighbors in Bordeaux.  Bergerac wines were England's favorite until merchants in the port of Bordeaux began push their own wines at the expense of their neighbors.  In fact, into the 20th century both Bergerac and Bordeaux wines were labelled simply "Bordeaux." Like white Bordeaux, this is predominately Sauvignon Blanc, with Semillon and Muscadelle in supporting roles.  It shows a richer style of Sauvignon Blanc, with ripe citrus and exotic floral hints, balanced by refreshing acidity.

Serving Suggestion:  A wine this fresh deserves scallops fresh from the sea, or perhaps a mid-summer BLT.

2012 Bianco "Di Caparsino" (Caparsa)

Caparsa, Bianco di Caparsino, Tuscany, Italy 2012

{biodynamic} Trebbiano, Malvasia

PEAR, GINGER, PAPAYA, DRIED CITRUS. EXOTIC

In 1982, Paolo Cianferoni started transforming his family's property in the heart of Chianti into an organic farm, leaving 60% of the land forested to maintain maximum sustainability. Though he concentrates on Sangiovese, a small parcel of his vineyard is devoted to the grapes that go into his distinctive bianco. Cianferoni allows the juice to ferment on the skins for a full two weeks, resulting in a firmer, more fine-toothed texture, and a wine that dances on the tongue.

Serving Suggestions: An ideal white to pair with heartier fare, like chestnut tortelli stuffed with pecorino and dressed in sage butter, or even classic Thai drunken noodles.

Exotic in its perfume and mouth-filling fruit, this intense white is equal parts refreshing cocktail wine and provocative head turner. Between the loving care of the brothers Castagnedi and the unusually fine powdery granite soil (nicknamed "parmigiano" by the locals), an impressively expressive wash of tangy orange citrus and concentrated tropicality has been coaxed from the typically more restrained Garganega and Chardonnay grapes.

Morella, "Mezzogiorno" Bianco Salento IGP, Puglia, Italy 2015

100% Fiano

STONE FRUIT & SULTANA, WAXY & FIRM, BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED

Low-yeilding, concentrated, and conducive to excellent quality, Fiano is a living legend. Drawing on 800 years of praise in Campania and Puglia, the variety is beginning to loom quite large once again as a contemporary contender as the greatest white of southern Italy. Its broad frame, vibrant acidity, and generous perfume conspire to ensure that it’s quite the head-turner. This example from Morella’s Lisa Gilbee, an Australian whose viticultural experience in both Australia and Italy dates back to the early 90s, is textbookishly captivating but stops shy of decadence with balance and restraint. Beautiful!

Serving Suggestion: Pasta w/ calamari, tomato sauce, & ricotta. Aged sheep’s milk cheeses like pecorino.

This cuvée, "Unculin," is his fresh, youthful quaffer, which is a great introduction to the distinctive Mencia variety, albeit with less herbaceousness than most.

CITRUS, SPICES, HOPPY AROMATICS, RUSTIC

Pierre and Annick Lebbe are living the dream. They live on their organic goat farm in the south of France, making cheese and beer. They grow barley for the malt on their farm and feed the spent grains to their goats. Pierre brews and bottles about 600 bottles of L’Amalthée (the malted) a month. This is true farmhouse style ale, rustic and cloudy, almost wine-like in its complexity and aromas. Spicy on the nose with a creamy, full-bodied everlasting head after the pour, the L'Amalthée is aromatic with citrus and spiced hop qualities. A serious foodie beer, best with a meal and not for after mowing the lawn.

Serving Suggestion: A complex beer with food like double and triple-cream cheeses. Once had this with mussels in broth and went to heaven.

Chateau du Vaux, Blanc "Les Gryphees", Moselle, France 2015 Pinot Gris & Gewurztraminer

NECTARINE & PEAR, RESTRAINED HONEYSUCKLE, LEMON & A KISS OF LYCHEE

Germany is indeed where the Mosel River ends (in its collision with the Rhein), but it has its beginnings in France, and the Moselle appellation is among the more obscure along this river so famous for viticulture. This cépage from scientist and sommelier, Marie-Geneviève, and her husband, Norbert Molozay (an international winemaking gun-for-hire), features a cast of grapes which wouldn’t be out of place on the other side of the Vosges Mountains in Alsace and/or in Germany’s Rheinland. With vibrant acidity and an understated but exotic nose courtesy of ripe Pinot Gris and a kiss of Gewurz, this wine is memorable for its personality as well as its rare regional representation.

Serving Suggestion: Russian winter salad w/ potato, cucumbers, dill, green peas, & thin mayonnaise. Pork knuckle stew w/ sauerkraut.

Chateau La Colombière, Blanc "Les Jacquaires", Southwest, France 2015

{organic} 50% Mauzac, 50% Len de l'El

NECTARINE & FUJI APPLE, CHAMOMILE TEA, LILY & LILAC

This adventurous blend from our friends at Fronton's Chateau La Colombière features a pair of grapes which aren't typically associated with the Fronton region, itself, but its closest neighbor to the east, Gaillac. Mauzac, a varietal whose reputation for excellent quality extends back into the sixteenth century, lends it's firm, apple-like flavors while the rarer Len de l'El grape asserts its dynamically floral perfume and waxy, oily richness on the palate. While not utterly traditional, this exotic cuvée showcases two of the Sud-Ouest's indigenous stars – ones that we don't get to taste as often as we'd like.

Serving Suggestion: Leek & cucumber salad w/ walnut, violet-infused vinegar, & fennel pollen. Soft, whole grain corn tacos w/ grilled fish, pineapple salsa, & pinto beans.

RIPE BOSC PEAR, GREEN APPLE AND SPICE, FRONTON EST BON

Fronton’s Chateau la Colombiere has long championed not just the traditional grapes of their corner of Sud Ouest France, but also the obscure ones. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that this vintage skips the Mauzac and Len de l’El of previous years for Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. Colombiere still puts their distinctive touch on this blend by adding 20% Bouysslet Blanc, a grape almost extict before they rescued it from a vine nursery. The Bouysselet adds just hint of waxy richness, while its partners bring snappy freshness.

Serving Suggestion: Claypot crab w/ brown sugar, sesame, & glass noodles. Tropical slaw w/ pineapple, mango, cilantro, & lime juice.

{organic} 100% Rolle (Vermentino)

FLORAL, GRAPEFRUIT & PEACH SKIN. VERY DRY.

Fresh, crisp, dry and clean, this white is made from Rolle, a grape varietal that’s obscure to most Americans, but essential in southern France and even southern Italy were it’s known as Vermentino. Considered to be one of the greatest white wines with seafood (especially Bouillabaisse), Rolle has sauvignon blanc-like tendencies but is less overpowering while still keeping a nice dry edge. Another of our favorites from the great organic vineyard Domaine de Pinchinat in Provence.

Serving Suggestions: An awesome match with bouillabaisse or fruits de mer, but any garlicky seafood dish loves this wine.

2016 Blanc Selecció (Can Feixes)

Can Feixes, "Blanc Selecció", Penedes, Spain 2016

Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Malvasia de Stiges

MINERALS, PEAR, LEMON. FAINT SPRITZ, LONG FINISH

From the highest elevation vineyard in all of the Penedes appellation comes this sophisticated white from just outside of Barcelona. This is Spain's answer to the fine, very dry wines from Chablis, Muscadet, and Rheingau. The blend is typically used to make Cava, but this still wine shows them to be subtle and complex and layered. This wine has been a favorite of ours for years, and the latest vintage does not let us down!

Serving Suggestions: Pure, unadorned oysters or steamed clams. Sashimi or simple haricot verts.

2010 Blanc de Blancs Brut (Huia Vineyards)

Huia Vineyards, Blanc de Blancs Brut

Marlborough, New Zealand 2010

100% Chardonnay

GOLDEN DELICOUS, TOAST & BEESWAX, PECTIN & PETROL

The cool-climated viticulture of New Zealand’s Marlborough most famously contributes the dialed-up Sauvignon-ish-ness to the region’s renditions of that famous grape, but it also helps other varieties hailing from colder parts of Europe to find voices similar to the ones they have back home. This Chardonnay-based bubbly takes on a combination of heightened acidity, orchard-ish tartness, and yeasty richness that would be perfectly at home in Champagne. An alpine-esque, petrolic tinge adds intrigue. Three cheers!

Serving Suggestion: Greenshell mussels w/ butter, Sauvignon Blanc, garlic, & lemon. Molten camembert w/ drizzled truffle-infused olive oil & granny smith apples on toasted bread.

2015 Blanc de Noir (Pinot Noir) (Paul Anheuser)

Paul Anheuser, Blanc de Noir, Nahe, Germany, 2015

100% Pinot Noir (white)

DRY, MOUTH-FILLING, RICH APRICOT, EARTHY AND EXOTIC

Paul Anheuser explains how he goes about making a white Pinot Noir. This is the only wine he produces in 100% stainless steel tanks (so there are no oak flavors to be found) and then employs a clear Bordeaux-style bottle to show off the wine's lovely golden depth. Despite being vinified from Pinot Noir, the wine remains perfectly clear in the absence of skin contact. Yielding a flavor that swarms the palate and enrobes you with unctuous mouth-filling fruit and a body that is rich and powerful, this is the rare white Pinot Noir, and without even changing your name to Ishmael, you can find it here now.

Serving Suggestion: A match for grilled chicken or fish with apricot chutney, tangy vinegar bbq sauce or salads with strawberry balsamic vinaigrette.

2015 Blanc de Noir (still) (Hillinger)

Hillinger, Blanc de Noir, Burgenland, Austria 2015

{organic} 100% Pinot Noir

WHITE PLUM & QUINCE, DELICATELY EARTHY HONEY, BRIGHT ACIDITY

While the term, “Blanc de Noir,” is typically reserved for sparkling white wines made from red grapes, its application to still wine, like this one from the masterful mavericks of Burgenland’s Hillinger, is not unprecedented. On the one hand, this interesting white is almost as aerodynamic and contemporary as the “ICON HILL" bottle commissioned by the estate from futuristic visionary architect, Zaha Hadid, but there’s an ethereally earthy subtext interwoven in like mist through an Austrian forest – a delicious collision of old and new.

Serving Suggestion: Lightly-breaded char (or salmon...or trout) w/ parsley, white pepper, & tarragon. Herb-crusted chèvre & balsamic beet/arugula salad.

2015 Blanc, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Blanc "Sud Absolu", Rhone Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

APRICOT & PINEAPPLE, SULTANA, DRY WITH VIBRANT ACIDITY

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, an ancient pan-Mediterranean grape with no shortage of clout in this corner of the Southern Rhone has long been typecast as a grape whose undeniable potential for decadence and dessert should be pursued to the absolute fullest. Taking a totally different tact with this cuvée, Ligière follows a decidedly non-dessert, dry route here and employs the fiercely characterful grape as a delicious quaffer. This is an unusually refreshing yet perfumed example of what is most likely the original “Muscat” It is, quite literally, the granddaddy of Torrontes, and we highly recommend it to fans of that Argentine grape!

Serving Suggestion: Crab-based bouillabaisse w/ copious rouille (French Mediterranean spicy olive oil-infused mayonnaise w/ garlic & saffron). Similarly, spider rolls w/ scallion, lots of masago, & aioli!

2016 Blanco "Penalba Lopez" (Peñalba Lopez, Bodegas)

50% Tempranillo Blanco, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Viura

PEAR & LEMON, ALMOND, CHAMOMILE & SHERRYISH WAXINESS

Gleamingly golden in the glass, this barrel-aged white is a a powerful and elegant enigma. Combining Tempranillo Blanco (a light skinned mutation of the famous red variety occasionally referred to as Blanca del País) with very ripe Sauvignon Blanc, Viura, and Chardonnay has resulted in a distinctive blend that’s one of a kind yet has the uncanny ability to remind us simultaneously of rich, white Rioja, Fino Sherry, and toast-driven Cali Chard. Powerhouse!

Serving Suggestion: Boquerones w/ tomato pulp on toasted, rustic bread. Marcona almonds w/ sheep’s milk cheese & quince paste.

2014 Blaufränkisch (Hillinger)

Hillinger, Blaufränkisch, Burgenland, Austria 2014

{organic} 100% Blaufränkisch

BLACK RASPBERRY & LINGONBERRIES, PEPPERY MINERAL, SANDALWOOD

As handsome and sturdily-built as former Hugo Boss model turned Austrian wine visionary, Leo Hillinger, this Blaufränkisch has the intense purple fruit and spice which have been admired in the varietal for at least a thousand years. Quintessentially Central European, Blaufränkisch is among the most important grapes of Hungary and the Czech republic, but Austria's Burgenland is arguably where it does its very best work. Hillinger's contemporary but naturalistic approach coaxes the best qualities from the grape - juicy blackberry pie, peppery mineral, and exotic wisps of sandalwood and amber. Delicious!

Serving Suggestion: Perfect with classic Wiener Schnitzel or other succulent fried meats (think pork Yakitori with asparagus & soft-boiled quail egg). Eggplant & shiitake tempura.

2013 Bobal "En Calma" Roble (Dominio de la Vega)

Dominio de la Vega, Bobal "En Calma" Roble, Utiel-Requena, Spain 2013

100% Bobal

BLACK CHERRY & DRIED MISSION FIG, UNCTUOUS & VELVETY

Bobal is a grape which is unfamiliar to a lot of wine lovers outside Spain, but it's one that we're going to get to know very well as a harbinger of powerful yet fiercely approachable wines filled with inky black fruit. While it's plentiful in Spain, its esoteric nature and consistently high quality sometimes render it uncompetitively expensive as an export. This example from Bobal maestros, Dominio de la Vega, is grown and vinified exorbitantly yet reaches us at an impressively reasonable price. Color us impressed...and deeply saturated with Bobal-ish black ruby.

Serving Suggestion: Barbecue pork backbone (from local, humane farms – critical, especially in NC). Rich, soft-ish cowsmilk cheeses.

2016 Bordeaux Blanc (Cedres, Chateau des)

Chateau des Cedres, Bordeaux Blanc, Bordeaux, France 2016

100% Sauvignon Blanc

TANGELO & GRAPEFRUIT, WISPS OF TOASTY VANILLA

This Bordeaux blanc exhibits impressive distinctiveness and head-turning tropicality over the internationally-fashionable grapefruit-centric flavors that tend to trendily dominate much of the region’s current output. It owes its intensely tropical personality to gloriously ripe Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and while it is 100%, it carries itself more exotically and less herbaceously that we might expect. A small 2 and a half acre plot is the origin of this very limited outing from our friends at Chateau des Cèdres (more familiar to most of our customers at Mendis). Get it while it’s hot (or cold)!

Serving Suggestion: Langoustine w/ tarragon, garlic, olive oil or gumbo w/ crayfish (or shrimp) & chorizo. Arugula salad w/ carrot shavings & shaved sheep’s milk cheese w/ citrus-balsamic vinaigrette.

{sustainable} 34% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33%Cabernet Franc

BRIGHT RED RASPBERRY, RHUBARB & ROSE PETAL

Born in the vineyards "between two seas" this equal-parts cuvée of Cabernet Franc with its offspring, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, drifts calmly yet energetically on its own sea of zesty acidity and vibrant red fruit. Recalling raspberry and dried cranberry, the fruit is ribboned through with wisps of floral and herbaceous perfume. The estate’s Jean-Luc Buffeteau, a trained enologist, treats each varietal differently for this cuvée in order for individual strengths to shine through.

Serving Suggestion: Olive oil-cured albacore w/ pickled artichoke hearts, & raspberry vinaigrette. Zesty tabouli w/ dried sultanas, basil, & olives.

Real Bordeaux that's Really Drinkable

Mendis is the sort of red Bordeaux we could drink everyday with a home cooked meal or after dinner with a movie. This is affordable, ready to drink Bordeaux. Bordeaux is the home to Cabernet and Merlot grapes. Mendis is a delicious blend on a foundation of Merlot then layered with Cab Sauv and Cab Franc. The nose shows white pepper and sweet spices leading to Mendis' deep color revealing the blackberry fruit we love from Merlot with a shot of Cab to give it a backbone and anchor the fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Juicy 80% ground beef, hand patted into thick burgers; or a NY strip steak au poivre.

2012 Bordeaux Rouge (Moulin de Mallet)

FORESTY BLACKBERRY & RED-FLESHED PLUM, ROASTED CACAO, SAVORY HERB

Hailing from the southeasternmost reaches of the sprawling viticultural kingdom broadly known as Bordeaux, this astonishingly generous, captivating value is a bit like mana from the heavens for those of us who don’t drink distinctive, assertive Claret as often as we’d like because of how expensive it’s become. Predominantly Merlot and showing the chocolatey, coffee-like, brownish-ness (in flavor, not pigment) that beautiful Bordeaux Merlot famously does, this broad shouldered, confident cuvée invites us to hang out as often as we like, palling around for beef Bourguignon or burgers and fries as our weeknight whims or weekend grillings and chillings may dictate. So good!

Serving Suggestion: Beef Bourguignon or Burgers & fries. Mashed potatoes w/ shiitake mushroom gravy & scallions.

RICH STRAWBERRY & SUBTLE EARTH, SILKY BODY, SOFT TANNIN

Red wine from Entre-Deux-Mers is a rare find, and we are lucky to have found an excellent example from Chateau Grand-Portail. Young winemaker Olivier Cailleux grows his Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot vines on a small individual plot surrounding an old stone cross (a marker along the pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela) where they benefit from high elevation and generous sun exposure. A palate of plush red berry fruit is backed by mellow tannins and a silky smooth body, resulting in a fresh and friendly style of Bordeaux.

Serving Suggestion:  Pizza with belly ham, fresh mozzarella, oregano, and chili oil. Tomato soup with field peas and wheat berries topped with pecorino and served with crusty bread.

INKY COLOR, SWEET SPICES, SUPER RIPE, MODERN

Size doesn't matter...Philippe Durand owns just 1 hectare of vines for this estate. Technically this wine is a Montagne Saint-Emilion, but since he brings the harvest to his Rocher Corbin winery up the road for vinification, he has to declassify this bottling. Tiny means only 600 cases produced per year! The quality is outstanding showing super-ripe fruit, deep color extract, and sweet spices like cinnamon and cedar. A modern wine rooted in French tradition.

Born in the vineyards of the Cote Chalonnaise's Montagny appellation, a mere half-hour south of the Aligoté grape's zenith zone of Bouzeron, this gorgeously restrained white is a Burgundian niche classic. Equally appealing as carefree aperitif or intellectual delight exuding elegantly mineralistic and ephemerally floral charms, this old-vine Aligoté nails each of the varietal's classical characteristics – lithe, light, and very lean but brimming with personality.

Though this cuvée from our friends, Céline & Laurent Tripoz, may take its name from the fact that it sees a short period of oak aging in a combination of new and older barrels, oak is far from this gorgeous white's foremost defining characteristic. Brimming with a waxy yeastiness that resembles that of some champagne and a winning combination of golden apple and tangy tropical fruit, this classical southern white Burgundy allows its time in oak to reveal itself as a delectable toasty spice that is as subtle and as integrated as it is sumptuous.

When Philippe and Diane Cauvin were researching the history of winegrowing in their local appellation of Fronton, they came across a grape they didn't know existed. Bouysselet, also called Prunelard Blanc, was previously thought to be the lost green-skinned sibling of the black-skinned Gaillac grape Prunelard. Having found a nursery which kept this vine alive for research purposes (but too little for winemaking), they had it propagated and brought back to life in their vineyard. This is the only Bouysselet in existence, farmed organically from a one acre vineyard, and it is a luscious phoenix of flavor!

FRESH RASPBERRY, SWEET BUT CRISP, LIGHTLY BUBBLY

Sweet wines get a weird rap. Often derided as cloying or unserious, it's easy for a wine lover to try to hide their sweet tooth. But isn't a fresh piece of fruit from the farmer's market one of life's great little pleasures? What if you could capture that joy in something as wonderful as a bottle of wine? That's what Borgo Moncalvo does! Their solar-powered winery and 5 tiny acres of organically-farmed vines (planted in the 1940s on the side of steep, remote rocky slopes, bring us this little half-sized bundle of joy. The red fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry feel fresh and juicy, not cloying, and the faint touch of bubble adds to the zesty, refreshing mouthfeel.

{sustainable} 100% Fernão Pires

CRISP WHITE PEACH, ORANGE BLOSSOM & FLINT, PRISTINE & WHOLESOME

Fernão Pires (intermittently better known as Maria Gomes) is the most planted white grape in Portugal for good reason. It’s one of the few grapes with a reputation for being able to balance generous yields and generous flavor. When the yields are low, however, the flavors become even more interesting. Sant’Ana’s ten hectare estate (minuscule by most standards) not only provides us with a single-varietal, low yield Fernão Pires, it does so in a cooler climate more conducive to subtlety and acidity. The result is very refreshing, ripe but modest in alcohol, impeccably clean, interesting, and very easy to drink. Super-summery all year long!

100% Mondeuse

SAVORY AROMATICS, EARTH, CHERRY, & BLACK PEPPER. DEEPLY FRENCH.

In the fun loving and party-centric Bugey family - which includes the sparkly-sweet cult sensation we know and love - this wine is the dignified cousin who stands in aloof contrast to his hedonistic relatives. Deep and dark with savory spice, and a distinctly old-school structure focused on mouthwatering acidity. It's still a Bugey, however, so it can't help but let some purply fruit fun slip through the cracks. Good wine runs thicker than water.

Serving Suggestion: Tomme and Comté cheeses are a natural (and excellent) choice, but this would pair well with heartier Middle Eastern fare, like Lebanese-style eggplant stuffed with lamb, tomato, and cinnamon.

This may sound a bit silly, but a photograph of George Hendry should exist next to the word "meticulous" in every current dictionary. When he's not growing grapes, he designs particle accelerators…

This blend, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon with touches of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec was aged for 20 months in French oak (45% new). We love this wine’s balance of concentrated ripe fruit, woodsy spice, and earthy green pepper. Powerful enough for aging 10+ years but ready to grace your table tonight.

Serving Suggestion:  Embered beef cheek with charred onion, summer squash, & African blue basil.Fire-roasted carrots with baby fennel, vadouvan spiced chevre, and heirloom greens.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Caton, Ty)

Ty Caton, Cabernet Sauvignon, Moon Mountain District, Sonoma County, California, US 2013

{sustainable}

CLASSIC CASSIS, OAKY VANILLA, BIG & DARK

We're going to the Moon! Moon Mountain of Sonoma (aka Napa's Mount Veeder) is part of the Mayacamas Mountains, which divide the region from Napa. Though the AVA designation here is new, these hillsides are home to some of the most historic mountain vineyards in California, dating to the 1890s. High elevation and rocky, volcanic terrain imbue Moon Mountain Cab with uncommon richness and intensity while Caton gives his wines the deluxe California Cabernet treatment with plenty of French oak barrel aging. The result is sizable with dark fruit, creamy vanilla, and suave tannins that you'll be over the moon for. Only 500 cases made!

Serving Suggestion:  Grilled beef liver with caramelized onion and mushrooms.  A savory winter stew with plenty of carrots, potatoes and bay leaves floating around.

John & Phyllis Blackburn had been farmers in California for decades, when they bought the lovely Pietra Santa [sacred stone] Estate 25 miles east of Monterey. This vineyard, bisected by the San Andreas fault, dates back to the 1850s, and the old vine Cabernet grown here makes very fine, rich but accessible wine. The extended aging in French Oak barrels is perfectly balanced by the intense Cabernet fruit character. This is a great value with surprising complexity.

BLACKBERRY PRESERVES & PLUM, SUMPTUOUS WOODSINESS, CACAO & BALSAMICO

Almost as much from Sonoma's Dry Creek as from Alexander Valley, Stuhlmuller's powerful, graceful Cabernet Sauvignon benefits from the ancient gravel and clay soils that famously enhance the quality and concentration of wines from this illustrious corner of California. Fritz Stuhlmuller inherited grape growing and vineyards from his parents, but he built his passion for making wine from the ground up. While impressive Chardonnays have been the estate's primary claim to fame, their intense Cabernet Sauvignons cut an imposing profile and are some of our favorites.

BLACK FRUIT, FIRM & FOCUSED, SUBTLE TOAST & DARK MINERALITY

Stylistically bridging the gap between classic Napa Valley Cabernet and something more in line with the grape's Bordelaise heritage, the "HRW" is brimming with cassis, oaken finesse, and a fine dusting of peppery tannin which stands its ground but doesn't overwhelm the palate. This may sound a bit silly, but a photograph of George Hendry should exist next to the word "meticulous" in every current dictionary. When he's not growing grapes, he designs particle accelerators…

Serving Suggestion: Let's take a cue from Bordeaux and consider grilled steak with sauce consisting of red wine, shallots, and butter. Mildly seasoned black bean burger with arugula, spinach, and feta cheese on a whole wheat english muffin.

RIPE & SPICY. BLACK CHERRY & CURRANT. TASTY!

Toni Garriga is a man on a mission. His family has made wine here in the mountains of Penedes for nearly 400 years, but rarely from their own grapes. Beginning in 1985, he decided to focus exclusively on "estate wine," wine made only from the grapes he grows. With great pride he presented us with this Cabernet, spicy and lush with lovely black cherry fruit. He ages it in small French oak barriques for 12 months before bottling to soften it and add complexity. Thanks Toni for this tasty treat!

Not quite a joven alternative to Mas Codina’s always beautiful Cabernet cuvée, this youthfully assertive gem is aged in oak for three months – just long enough to enhance an impression of polish or finesse without compromising its vitality. Penedès is best known as Cava country, but like Tarragona to its north, has a longstanding love affair with Bordelais varieties, and both Cabernet and Merlot do outstanding work here. Txin txin!

From one of the few terraced hillside vineyards in Napa Valley, on the rocky, south facing side of Howell Mountain. This is one of the most coveted vineyard sites in all of California, and this wine shows why. Owner Amizetta Clark is a fifteenth generation direct descendant of Pocahontas and treats her land with the respect of her Algonquian heritage.

The high altitude vineyards give us grapes with super ripeness, never losing their backbone. The winemaking here is stellar- in a style that pushes the fruit but never overdoing it. We wish all inexpensive cabs could taste this balanced.

{Organic} Nero,di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Bombino

EARTHY, SPICY, DARK FRUIT & BALANCED TANNIN

Around Lucera, in Italy's Puglian peninsula, there was a communal press, with the understanding that when you pressed your grapes, you would take (cacce) your juice and must at the end of the day, so the next farmer could pour his grapes in (mmitte). And now there's a wine region named after this practice, because why not? It's tradition. Paolo Petrilli's red, based on the local Nero di Troia grape, is earthy, spicy, and tannic, well-balanced with acid, with subtle dark fruit and floral notes. He also grows and jars tomatoes, and grows wheat that he turns into pasta. Because why not? It's tradition.

2015 Cannonau di Sardegna (Sanguineti)

Sanguineti, Cannonau di Sardegna, Sardinia, Italy 2015

100% Cannonau (Grenache)

CASSIS & FRESH BLACK FIG, WHOLESOME EARTHY LEATHER, BLACK LIME

Known as Cannonau in Sardegna and as Grenache or Garnacha almost everywhere else, the fiercely Mediterranean varietal thrives in sun-soaked, arid landscapes. Terrain which might appear pretty unaccommodating to most creatures gives these grapes the perfect environment to do their best work. Rising to the occasion in the rocky, windswept vineyards of the Sardegna, the vines find themselves in the capable hands of Antonio Sanguineti. In his youth, Sanguineti lost his ancestral Tuscan vineyards following familial disputes over land. He now relishes the opportunity to put his knowledge of and passion for winegrowing to work in Sardegna.

100% Carmenere

DEEP RED FRUIT, PEPPER & MOCHA, DUSTING OF CLOVE & ROSEMARY

Vina Maquis is essentially an island perched on a stretch of land between the Colchagua Valley's Tinguirira River and Chimbarongo Creek. The two parallel waterways bring cool coastal breezes and allow the grapes to maintain healthy, balancing acidity while they ripen. While this example from Maquis is classic Carmenere, it features a decidedly prettier and more delicate streak than the often roasty and over-oaked examples that have almost defined the varietal of late.

Serving Suggestion: Morcilla on crusty bread with slivers of Manchego. Slooooow-cooked Pork Pernil with a brown-sugar shellacked skin and roasted poblano. Masterful with mole!

93% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon

ESPRESSO, BLACKBERRIES, ROASTED PEPPERS, OAKEN VANILLA

With its origins in Carmenere vineyards planted more than sixty years ago, this robust and multifaceted cuvée demonstrates both the signature characteristics of the grape's distinctive personality and the finesse which the estate has encouraged through careful selection and judicious aging in large oak barrels. The result is an impressive pillar of coffee flavors scaled by wisps of toasty vanilla, dark chocolate and jalapeño.

Serving Suggestion: "Bistec a lo Pobre" - Chilean sautéed steak on a bed of onions, topped with a fried egg (after all, this wine loves protein), and served with rustic peppery french fries. Mole Poblano!

Carver Sweet Potato Lager [6pk cans] (Fullsteam Brewery)

Fullsteam, Lager "Carver" [22oz] , Durham, NC

North Carolina is the largest U.S. producer of sweet potatoes. In their quest to work with local Southern ingredients as much as possible, the humble sweet potato is an obvious choice. In fact, one-third of the total fermentables in Carver come from North Carolina sweet potatoes. The goal of this modestly-hopped amber lager is to explore the subtle nuances of the sweet potato…not hit you over the head with spices. It’s a tribute to the amazing Southern environmental scientist and farmer, Doctor George Washington Carver. He was passionate about the sweet potato and a pioneer in crop rotation and creative re-use. He’s a true Fullsteam hero. 5.8% ABV

Hailing from less than half an hour inland from Barcelona, this Brut Nature suggests a full-bodied richness and ripeness that belies its majestically meager 11.5% abv – bone-dry yet brimming with fruit-focused flavors that come armed with spicier aromatic complexities. Forged from almost equal parts Macabeu and the typically more extroverted Xarel-lo with support from Parellada, the traditional Cava trio is in play, finding perfect synergy.

CITRUS & ASIAN PEAR, CLEAN & CALCEREOUS

This restrained and refreshing gem is made mostly from Viura, the dominant grape in “Cava country” or Catalonia, where it’s known as Macabeu, but this is not Cava country. In fact, Finca Torremilanos is the only producer in Ribera del Duero which has been entrusted with the ability to describe its bubblies as “Cava.” Pristinely pale with vaguely emerald undercurrents, its born among vines aging as many as 180 years and mixes a minerally zest through its citrus and orchard fruit.

By law, all Cava must be produced utilizing a secondary fermentation in the bottle - "Méthode Champenoise," but few in this price range warrant such close comparison to the singularly elegant wines of Champagne as this delicate and keenly generous rosé from our friends at Mas Codina. Bright, restrained, and finely textured, this is a profound and understated sparkler which exudes sophistication and balance through every fun, refreshing bubble. As is the case in many of the best rosé bubblies, here red fruit is nuance rather than star, allowing minerality, floral notes, and gentle citrus each a voice in this highly memorable and complex sparkler.

This Blanc de Blancs (white wine]from white grapes – in this case, Chardonnay) is racy and very rich but still easy-going enough to serve as a sub for mystifyingly overpriced mega-production staples like Veuve Clicqout. Unlike the factory wines which dominate the world of Champagne today, this is handmade in minute quantities by a small, independent, family-owned vigneron. Mmmmm, the limey character and vibrant acidity are powerful and almost crystaline. Substantially more impressive than the refreshingly reasonable price might indicate!

Equally food-friendly, toast-tacular, and everlastingly evening-ready, this is the kind of sparkler that you could should get to know very, very well. Don't forget how rare grower-made Champagnes like this are. A gem!

ROUND PINEAPPLE & PEAR, MATURE YET LIVELY

Mature, elegant Chardonnay is something that gets us really excited. Really, quite, very excited.  Unfortunately, few Chardonnays are built to age gracefully, and those that are tend to be prohibitively pricey, but after six years of bottle aging, Belle Pente's Chardonnay is still drinking beautifully.  In one local touch you won't often see, Belle Pente uses 50% homegrown Oregon oak, in addition to 50% French oak.  Despite what sounds like a lot of oak from all over, the wine is not too oaky, since only 10-15% of the barrels are new. Harvesting in two waves gives the wine a perfect balance between rich ripeness and fresh brightness.

Stoller’s contiguous plots of vines, however, are special, surrounded by mountains that create a uniquely warm mesoclimate and ensure awesome ripeness.

2016 Chardonnay (Stoller)

Stoller, Chardonnay, Oregon, US 2016

FORELLE PEAR & LEMON CURD, ZESTY & FIRM, AIN’T OAKED

From the revered Dundee hills of Willamette Valley, this oak-free Chardonnay has the balance of ripe concentration and zealous acidity that we’re quick to associate with outstanding contemporary white Burgundy from the area’s more southerly regions like Pouilly-Fuissé or Viré-Clessé. It’s no surprise given Oregon’s ever-increasingly cemented aptitude for the varieties native to France's eastern climes. Stoller’s contiguous plots of vines, however, are special, surrounded by mountains that create a uniquely warm mesoclimate and ensure awesome ripeness.

Serving Suggestion: Panfried rainbow trout w/ lemon pepper & skinny asparagus w/ Dijon mustard. Squash & scallion tempura w/ aioli.

2013 Chardonnay (Frank Family Vineyards)

Frank Family, Chardonnay, Napa, CA 2013

RICH, UNCTUOUS, BUTTERY & OAKY - CLASSIC CALI STYLE

11 months of French oak barrel aging along with regular lees stirring results in a fabulously buttery, oaky, spicy, creamy and rich Chardonnay the way only Napa produces. Rich Frank is a former long time Disney executive who turned his passion for wine into his next career. When it comes to big chardonnay he doesn't 'mickey' around. He's 'goofy' for the California style and this is one of the best.

2013 Chardonnay (Paraiso)

LUSH, TROPICAL FRUIT, TOASTY OAK, HINT OF BUTTER

Paraiso is a reference to "paradise" and one sip will take you there. This Smith family are multi-generation grape growers and wine makers in Monterey. This is a full-bodied white with a rich mouth feel and intensely concentrated apple, pear and pineapple flavors. The toasty oak is lighter than previous vintages, but still part of the blend and just enough butteriness to round out the finish.

Serving Suggestion: Cream based soups, poultry in velouté sauce and baked fish in butter and chervil herb sauce.

CREAMY, TOASTY OAK & TROPICAL FRUIT, VANILLA

Up and coming boutique winery Stuhlmuller has yet to become a household name, but it's not due to the quality of their wines. They're outstanding! This fat, lush Chardonnay is big and rich, but remains balanced by a perfect amount of acidity. Fermented using natural yeast and aged in French oak barrels, it comes out with unmistakable California Chardonnay style, only more pretty. Tiny production.

2015 Chardonnay (Hook & Ladder)

{sustainable} 100% Chardonnay

BIG BUTTER AND CREAM, RIPE FRUIT, VANILLA OAK WITH A DASH OF NUTMEG

Thankfully it's easier than ever to find California Chardonnay with restraint and balance... but sometimes its fun to kick it old school, right? Barrel fermented in French oak, with a rich, creamy mouthfeel from full malolactic fermentation, this big, blustery bottle of butter harkens back to the days of classic California Chard. Former firefighter Cecil DeLoach made his name with some of California’s most popular Chardonnay’s in the 1990s, before selling his eponymous brand to focus on his Hook & Ladder project, so its no surprise he hasn't forgotten how to make Chardonnay party like it's 1999.

Serving Suggestion: Creamy chicken alfredo with broccoli and plenty of parmesan. Steamed lobster with lemon-herb butter sauce.

2014 Chardonnay (Woodlands)

BAKED LEMON BARS, SUBTLE CREAM, UNDERSTATED OAK

Australia gets a really bad rap these days. Even the most open-minded oenophiles think of the continent as the home of supermarket plonk with critters on the label, and overblown, overpriced reds. Let Western Australia change your mind. 100% barrel fermented but free of malolactic fermentation and only partially barrel aged, this bright Chardonnay has the most beautiful, subtle touch of oak. It is miles away in both distance and style from what you might be used to. 

Serving Suggestion: Classic dover sole with lemon, parsley and brown butter. Pappardelle with fresh garden peas in a light cream sauce, lemon zest, and mint.

From a hand-carved stone cellar beneath a crappy-looking house (that's what La Casaccia means, in a family-friendly sense) in Monferrato, the familigia Rava produces this beauty: subtle in its aromas, light and delicate and fresh, evocative of Macon-Villages. Time spent aging on the lees provides richness, while retaining mouthwatering acidity. It's a bouquet of wild flowers, a plate of freshly sliced melon, apple, and apricots. Charnó? CharYES!

Serving suggestion: The Ravas suggest "fresh cheeses and all kinds of fish". How about mozzarella, tetilla, & toma, w/ crackers, dried apricots & fig jam, followed by chirashi don (a bowl of sushi rice topped with sashimi)?

2015 Chardonnay "Clone 76 Inox" Santa Rita Hills (Melville Winery)

Melville Winery, Chardonnay Estate, Sta. Rita Hills, California 2015

{sustainable} 100% Chardonnay

EXOTIC CITRUS, STONE FRUIT & PEAR, FIRM & FULL-BODIED

We’ve long been ardent admirers of Melville’s large-and-in-charge leaning Pinot Noirs, the estate’s “Clone 76-Inox” Chardonnay, in some ways, runs parallel in style. Both grapes are natives of France’s Burgundy, and Melville manages to pay homage to their origins while harnessing the potential for power and additional richness offered by the climate of Santa Rita’s hills. This offering has, with intent, one foot planted firmly in the stylings of Chablis, but at 14% alcohol, there’s an undeniable weight and ripeness-induced tropicality that’s all its own. This Meliville is a great white whale of a Chardonnay.

Serving Suggestion: Savory monkfish & pineapple (not too sweet!) skewers w/ yellow curry. Cali-themed sweet corn gazpacho w/ halved grape tomatoes, shallots, avocado, & lemon juice.

Redolent of juicy apple and pineapple and enhanced by a gentle oaken spice, this is a delight!

As they find their footing, the wines continue to get better each vintage.

No need to worry about heavy oak or malolactic here, this is very light handed in the wood and butter department. The high altitude vineyards give us grapes with super ripeness, never losing their backbone. The winemaking here is stellar- in a style that pushes the fruit but never overdoing it. Bravo again to Sophenia for making such a wonderfully full-flavored Chardonnay that lets the fruit come through rather than cloaking it in wood.

{organic} 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre

BRIGHT, PRETTY RASPBERRY/STRAWBERRY. BIG BONED.

Guillaume Gonnet is the vigneron who currently runs his famous family estate Font de Michelle in Chateauneuf du Pape. With his Australian-born wife, he has been quietly buying separate vineyard parcels here to make tiny production wines for which he does not have to adhere to his family’s historic style. With this freedom he is making more lively, bright wines, instead of the firm, serious wines from his other estate which often need many years to develop.

Serving Suggestion:  Duck fat seared veal chop, with shaved black truffle, chanterelles, and foie gras lentils.

Domaine des Pères de l'Eglise, Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge "Heritage", Rhone Valley, France 2014

LOGANBERRY & BLACK CHERRY, MAJESTIC SPICE BOX, DRIED FLOWERS

Comprised almost entirely of Grenache (century-old vines), the cuvée “Heritage” oozes intense, violet fruit and a most exotic potpourri of garrigues, rose petal, dried persimmon, and cinnamon. Arguably more seductive and mysterious than massive or brooding, it is absolutely enchanting!

MISSION FIG & BLACKBERRY, DARK CHOCOLATE, ROSEWATER & PISTACHIO

Domaine des Pères de L'Eglise is a producer which with a rich history of two centuries and (and four generations under the care of a single family lineage).

2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge "Tradition" (Berthaude, Maison la)

Maison la Berthaude, Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Tradition", Rhone, France 2015

Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah

RED & BLACK BERRYISH FRUIT, WHITE PEPPER, ROSE & CINNAMON

INCOMING! This suave citizen of the fiery-ember centerpiece region of the Southern Rhone soars in to save the day. A, perhaps stabilizing, decade-long trend of increasing prices for the more revered corners of the Rhone Valley has placed Chateauneuf well outside the bounds of regular affordability for many of us, but this heroic offering from Berthaude is a true treat poised to change all that (at least for a moment, so enjoy while it lasts)! This classically-styled, broad shouldered red is very ripe and a very apt ambassador of the already famous 2015 vintage!

Serving Suggestion: Pork tenderloin w/ rosemary crust & blackberry/red wine sauce. Spicy collard green soup w/ onions, tomatoes, paprika, & cumin.

APPLE & LEMON. CLEAN, CRISP CLARITY & ZESTY MINERAL

As exciting and diverse as are the many Middle-Loire specialties made from Chenin Blanc, it’s surprising that more new world regions and producers haven’t attempted to prioritize it as a distinctive showpiece. Fortunately, South Africa has long gone above and beyond to right this mystifying wrong. This gloriously bright, zesty gem has the combination of tart golden apple and citrus, refreshingly clean mineral notes, and energetic acidity that we cherish.

Serving Suggestion: Smoked fish (or ceviche) on rustic toast or rusks w/ capers. Citrusy Kalamata tapenade.

LEMON, YELLOW APPLE, PEACH. AROMATIC & LIGHTLY SWEET

This is a lovely, aromatic white from cool-climate Mendocino Valley in Northern California. Chenin Blanc is a tart grape that is often left lightly sweet to balance that high acidity. The variable sweetness in these wines can be anywhere from nonexistent and incredibly tart all the way through to honey-like dessert wines. This one from Husch is noticeably sweet, but not cloying, and nearly dry on the finish. It is highly aromatic with lovely fruit aromas and clean balance.

Serving Suggestions: A great match for hot and aromatic foods such as Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Szechwan and Cajun.

Ken Forrester, "Petit" Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2011

100% Chenin Blanc

OH SO FRESH! VIBRANT, JUICY, CRISP, AROMATIC

Ken Forrester bought the old Scholtzenhof property which dates back to 1689, 10 years after Stellenbosch was founded. Instead of continuing to sell off the delicious grapes to the local co-op, Ken chose to make his own wine. That was 1994. Today his wines have a serious reputation as the stars of the region. Ken's Chenin Blanc has shown that South Africa can compete on the world platform. Floral, full of melon aromas and vibrant. Another bottle, please.

{sustainable} 100% Cabernet Franc

BLACK TEA, MEDIUM-BODIED, OPEN, RIPE & SUPPLE

The Gouron family has farmed their estate for five generations in the region of Chinon. The unique gravelly- sloped soils are key to the structure they get from the vines. This cuvée called "Terroir" reflects this gravel and the 50- year old vines planted there. More Pinot Noir-esque in style, the Cabernet Franc here is wide open with a knife edge balance of fruit and acidity from start to finish. Supple and ripe, the finish is pure black tea and red berry fruit. No oak in this cuvée.

Serving Suggestion: A match for seared duck breast with savory thyme and blackberry sauce; or beef tenderloin with sautéed smoked bacon and mushroom topping.

Slingshot is brewed in super-small batches in a temperature-controlled environment so that every ounce of cold brew is the best it can be. Every bottle is filled by hand, labeled by hand and packed by hand in Raleigh, North Carolina.

While the coffees they use will change with fresh crops throughout the year, one thing stays the same: they hand brew and bottle in small batches using only two ingredients — quality, organic coffee beans roasted locally by Counter Culture Coffee; and filtered tap water from the beloved City of Oaks, Raleigh, North Carolina.

Bottles need to stay refrigerated and the cold brew tastes best within four weeks of the brewed-on date. Coffee has natural sediments and oils that can settle, so it's best to give it a good shake before drinking.

2016 Corbieres Rosé "Floreal" (Bouysse, Domaine La)

Domaine de la Bouysse, Corbieres Rosé "Floreal," Languedoc, France, 2016

90% Syrah, 10% Grenache

BRIGHT RED BERRIES, FRESH BLOSSOMY AROMA, CRISP & JUICY

Corbieres, one of the most celebrated corners of France's sprawling Languedoc, is best known for its spicy and very Mediterranean reds. Considering this, perhaps it shouldn't be surprising then that this deep rosé is brimming with the distinctive character of Syrah, spice, and white-peppery mineral. This wine bears more than a passing family resemblance to the region's exotic red wines. Sister and brother, Martine Pagès and Christophe Molinier of Domaine de la Bouysse never fail to impress us with the breadth and quality of their work!

Serving Suggestions: Spicy Toulouse sausage casserole with butter beans, leeks, and parsley. Korean BBQ (such as pork Bulgogi) with kimchi and pickled lotus root.

2014 Corbieres Rouge (Gasparets, Chateau)

Chateau Gasparets, Corbieres Rouge, Languedoc, France 2014

Carignan, Grenache, Syrah

EARTHY, DARK RED FRUITS & FRENCH HERBS

Since 1771, Gasparets has been producing fantastic Corbieres. This is a particularly dark one with sweet red fruit, vanilla, clove and essence of garrigue (wild herbs). The vineyards are way up high and very rocky lending to a style that shows black tar and earth under the fruit. Short time aging in oak barrels adds the smoke; all together you get a dynamic, friendly red with polished fruit and amazing drinkability.

Serving Suggestion: Heavy finger foods, stuffed mushrooms, cheese fondue, chicken in barbecue sauce.

2013 Corbieres Rouge " Valensol" (Bouysse, Domaine La)

Domaine La Bouysse, Corbieres Rouge "Valensol", Languedoc, France 2013

{organic} 50% Carignan, 50% Mourvèdre

BARK, SMOKED HERBS, TOASTED SESAME, MEATY

There comes a point for most of us when we reach a plateau. That’s life.They don’t usually come equipped with castles or a stamp from UNESCO however, but, for Martine and her son Christophe Molinier, it did! Their plateau is called “Bouïs” and it juts out of the Corbières landscape like a ship on open water. In the wake of this jutting rock is a region highly susceptible to drought and brush fires, which, in the world of wine, translates to unabashedly unique juice! Honoring that unique character by fermenting in concrete tanks, the Valensol has us saluting: to plateaus! 

Serving Suggestion:  Low and slow a pork shoulder in ginger beer, spice it with yellow onions and nutmeg, and pull it over a bowl of macaroni and cheese with sharp cheddar.

2012 Corbieres Rouge "Mazerac" (Bouysse, Domaine La)

Domaine La Bouysse, Corbieres Rouge "Mazerac", Languedoc, France 2012

{organic} 80% Carignan (120+ year old vines), 20% Grenache

PROVENÇAL HERBS, BLACK RASPBERRY, VIOLETS

Wicked old-vine Carignan, like 150 year old, is the base of this Corbieres called Mazerac. Martine Pages uses these ancient vines to great effect, polishing their power with slight aging in small barriques. What comes through is a fantastic expression of Carignan, packed with dried black raspberries, garrigue (rosemary, thyme, lavender), and a slightly smoky earthiness. The inky purple color of this wine is backed up with the essence of violets. Her best vintage in a decade!

Serving Suggestion: All grilled meats. It was also delicious with a salad of fresh frisée topped with sautéed chicken livers and gizzards then drizzled with the pan drippings touched with sherry vinegar.

2013 Cornas "Harmonie" (Farge, Domaine Guy)

Domaine Guy Farge, Cornas "Harmonie," Rhone Valley, France 2013 {organic} 100% Syrah

INKY CASSIS, PUNGENT EARTH, LEATHER & OYSTER SHELL

Cornas is frequently seen as the source of harder, more brooding wines of the Northern Rhone. As is the case in its neighboring appellations, Syrah is king here. This rendition from Guy Farge certainly has its edge, but the conventional wisdom of requiring ten years of aging in order to become approachable has been unceremoniously kicked out the window. A blackish-violet core of fruit radiates earthy, leathery aromas of root vegetables and cured meat. Fascinating and fantastic!

Serving Suggestion: Hangar steak w/ roasted beets & creminis. Charred root vegetables w/ dill & sour cream.

2015 Cortese (Borgo Moncalvo)

Borgo Moncalvo, Cortese, Piemonte, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Cortese

LEMON ZEST & GOLDEN APPLE, MINERALLY & MEDIUM BODIED, VERY CRISP

Cortese, a grape which many wine lovers associate exclusively with the small Piemontese region of Gavi, actually has a fairly wide northwestern Italian range. This example from less than 40 miles further west has many reminiscences of Gavi's classic hallmarks (vibrant acidity, zesty citrus, restrained minerality) but a significantly lower price tag than most representatives of Cortese's capital - a feature that we certainly appreciate! Borgo Moncalvo is a dynamic family farm with several generations under its belt and a forward-thinking young winemaker at the helm. Solar panels provide power to the estate.

Serving Suggestion: A tremendous companion for seafood and freshwater fare alike but also comfortable being sipped at by itself on a balmy spring evening. Herb-encrusted roast chicken breast w/ a lemon-based marinade.

Oltretorrente, Cortese DOC Colli Tortonesi, Veneto, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Cortese

PINEAPPLE & TANGY CITRUS, JUICY & RIPE

This delightful Cortese comes from the far eastern rolling hills of the Piemonte, which neighbors the more famous Cortese growing region of Gavi. Though this husband-and-wife winery was only established in 2010, there is much more history behind this wine. Their tiny, 3 hectare, organic vineyard holds vines as old as 100 years. Scents of zesty lime and tropical fruit on the nose lead you on to a wine that opens with balancing acidity and a wonderfully lingering finish.

Serving Suggestion: Cortese-poached trout w/ sugar snaps, dill, & mango chutney. Crispy vegetable omelets or egg tarts w/ onion & cheddar.

{sustainable} 100% Gamay Saint Romain

ELDERBERRIES & CURRANT, FOREST UNDERBRUSH & SWEET EARTH

Hailing from the monstrous Loire River’s source (closer, in fact, to Beaujolais and the Northern Rhone than to those regions that first spring to mind when we think of the Loire), this fresh, firm, and foresty Gamay has what it takes to simultaneously appeal to admirers of Cab Franc, Willamette Pinot, and the juicy wines of the aforementioned Beaujolais. Stéphane Sérol is a master not only of his region and its Gamay grape but of the exploration of terroir, naming each of his numerous cuvées for their origins.

BRAMBLY RASPBERRY & BLACKBERRY, AROMATIC, JUICY

Wow this is Gamay to rave about! Robert Serol is a benchmark producer in the Cote Roannaise region. The estate has vines aging from five to eighty years old. All of his wines are 100% Gamay and each reflects the terroir of the vineyards. Les Originelles is the sort of wine we wish we could share with every customer in the store.

LUSH, FLORAL PEAR, CITRUS & WHITE RAISIN. DRY.

These vines are grown on a hilltop of completely rocky soil called "Marnes," so poor that nobody thought vines would grow there. Dominique Granier traded other plots to get this one and proudly states "If you can find one bucket of dirt on this hill, I'll give you the vineyard!" The stressed vines that grow here now produce incredible grapes for this spectacular white that rivals the great whites of the Rhone Valley.

This still sweet yet impeccably balanced, non-dessert offering has what it takes in the realms of both powerful flavor and intense taste sensations to be counted as a true powerhouse.

RED RASPBERRY & KIRSCH, BAZAAR-ISH POTPOURRI, ROSEMARY

The last few years have yielded a bounty of truly stunning Cotes du Rhones that seem to come closer to reaching the regal heights of their more impressively-pedigreed brethren from AOCs like Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape. This beautiful gem does indeed come from entirely within the bounds of the Chateauneuf AOC yet opts to declassify itself down to the sprawling and much more variable (in terms of quality) Cotes du Rhone AOC. The resemblance, however, is striking! Clocking in at a percentage point lower in alcohol content, it’s not quite as big as its big brothers, but the gorgeously exotic perfumes that we giddily associate with the output of the outstanding Peres de l’Eglise estate loudly affirm their presence during roll call.

[biodynamic] 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah

RASPBERRY & DRIED CRANBERRY, SWEET ROSEMARY, EARTH & DARK CHOCOLATE

"Drink wine. This is life eternal," famously wrote the ever beauty-seeking Omar Khayyam, and 800 years later, his attitudes and observations resound with timelessness. The Thibon sisters of Mas de Libian have named this delicious cuvée after the 12th century Persian poet and philosopher, and its exotic perfume of rosemary, lavender, and cocoa combine with violet-fruited romance in a sublimely exotic testament to his writings. This wine is hedonistic and nurturing, so heed the advice of Khayyam and take "the daughter of the vine to spouse".

Serving Suggestion: Lamb medallions simmered with sliced dates, saffron, and cumin. Okra, potatoes, and eggplant stewed with caramelized onions, tomato paste, black pepper, and a squeeze of lime juice (served over rice).

{biodynamic} 90% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache

BRIGHT BLACKBERRY, MINERALLY EARTH, VIOLETS & MEDITERRANEAN SPICE

Showcasing a decidedly elegant side of the monstrous Mourvedre grape, this wine resonates with dense purple energy, enchanted wildness, and the mysterious potpourri of Mediterranean France. The Thibon sisters of Mas de Libian never fail to produce highly memorable wines with unique personalities.

90% Grenache, 10% Syrah

DENSE BLACK RASPBERRY & KIRSCH, GARRIGUES

Hailing from this stretch of Mediterranean France closest to the Spanish birthplace of Garnacha, this opaquely obsidian offering showcases the variety . Força Réal, a Roussillon producer which takes its name from an imposing mount that towers high above the rugged countryside, crafts beautiful wines, and this one exists somewhat between worlds, recalling both Rhone-ish, Languedoc-ian, French fare and the specialties of Spain’s Catalonia like Priorat and Montsant. Grenache-i-mus maximus....

CRISP PEACH & ORANGE, EXOTIC HONEYSUCKLE & GINGERBREAD

GINGERED PEACH CUSTARD, BRIGHT & EXOTIC

The soeurs Thibon of Mas de Libian are as thoughtful about naming their wines as they are about creating them. For their single white offering, they play on the "cave canem" ("beware of dog") signs that were discovered in the ruins of Pompeii. Not that there is anything to fear with this delicious Viognier-based blend, 20% of which is fermented in oak before joining with aromatic Roussanne and bright Clairette.

Like the best producers of the southern Rhone, Chateau de Marjolet crafts wines which are deft performers of a balancing act, finding that middle ground between power and finesse. With the precision of a tightrope walker, this red from the village of Laudun brings a restrained clarity of dark fruit together with hedonistic pepper, spice, and a satisfying earthy richness which is exotic, elegant, and unmistakably Mediterranean.

{organic & vegan} 90% Grenache 10% Syrah

FIRM LOGANBERRY, SMOKE & FRESH LEATHER, TOUCH OF THYME

Hailing from Daniel Couston's estate in the lower reaches of the Rhone's Drôme department, this wine showcases glorious Northern Rhone-esque (despite being predominately Grenache) character from old vines. Powerfully pretty (prettily powerful?) and featuring the combination of inky fruit and sumptuously meaty intrigue which some of the wines of the Rhone are famous for, it is simultaneously lively and deep. A network of earthy intrigue and leathery elegance emerges as the wine opens in the glass. Domaine Le Garrigon consummately impresses us once again... A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: Look to the cuisine of Lyon. Venison terrine, cardoon in chicken broth, scalloped potatoes & onion... Tunisian beef stew w/ sweet potato, chick peas, olive oil, black pepper & paprika.

{organic} 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault

FIRM RASPBERRY & DARK CHOCOLATE, WHITE PEPPER & TARRAGON

Cairanne is one of the brightest points in the Southern Rhone and, despite its increasingly lofty reputation, somehow continues to remain a source for some of the valley's best values. Forged predominantly from 100 year old Grenache vines and Syrah planted more than half a century ago, this offering from Patrice Jubian makes a superb ambassador for this corner of Mediterranean France, layering the concentrated black and purple fruit associated with these varietals and the coveted garrigue-ish aromatics of the "méridional" countryside.

Serving Suggestion: Indian-inspired burrito of spicy minced goat w/ curried lentils, onions, & tomato sauce wrapped in roti bread w/ cilantro & avocado. Juicy sausage w/ paprika, fennel, & garlic w/ black rice & field peas.

2015 Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Saint-Gervais (Sainte-Anne, Domaine)

70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

CURRANT & PLUM, WHITE PEPPER & MINERALLY EARTH, RED RASPBERRY PRESERVES

One of the fabulous yet relatively lesser-known corners of the Cotes-du-Rhone Villages occupying the “Right Bank,” Saint-Gervais lies northwest of Tavel and Lirac, at roughly the same latitude as Gigondas on the river’s opposite side. Domaine Saint-Anne’s Guy Steinmaier’s parents immigrated to Burgundy from Austria in the early 1930s, and he set up shop in this corner of the Rhone around 1960. This cuvée, in contrast to the estate’s more iconoclastic offerings, stars the traditional Grenache with a bit of Syrah and Cinsault providing additional interest. Concentrated red fruit, spice, and elegant earthy notes are firmly imbedded within this large, lively Mediterranean treat.

Serving Suggestion: Spicy, buttery, Ethiopian stewed beef. Black bean curry w/ diced bell peppers, tomato purée, coconut, & cumin.

100% Syrah

LOGANBERRY & CASSIS, GARRIGUES & GRAPHITE, DECADENT

Perhaps having not quite achieved the cult-classic status enjoyed by Saint-Anne’s Mourvedre-dominated cuvée, this equally unusual Syrah-centric Southern Rhone from the estate is no less remarkable. Homing in on an absolutely textbook-worthy distillation of Syrah’s essences, this more Mediterranean example is quite distinct from those of the Northern Rhone. Firm, savory blackish-purple fruit character, courtesy of the variety itself, comes magnificently studded with dark, mineralistic elegance, peppery spice, and the quintessential perfumes of the region’s garrigues. An elixir!

70% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache, 15% Syrah

BLACK CHERRY & CHOCOLATE-COVERED FIG, ROSEWATER & ROSEMARY

Emerging from the western reaches of the Southern Rhone, this unusually Mourvèdre-driven cuvée is quite iconoclastic and quietly iconic. Mourvedre enjoys a lofty reputation among growers throughout Mediterranean France for the character and intensity that it can contribute, but it also has earned the reputation of a sluggish ripener and, thus, a liability in cooler years. Saint-Anne’s fame is partially anchored to the estate’s affinity for the variety, ripening it to perfection and trusting it to headline this broad-shouldered and exquisitely exotic red. File closer to Chateauneuf than Bandol...

Serving Suggestion: Lamb chops w/ cumin, cinnamon, fennel, & olive oil. Flatbread w/ feta, black olives, spinach, & roast garlic.

GLEAMING BLACKBERRY, DESERT GARRIGUES & WHITE PEPPERY SPICE

Just wrap your head around the fact that estate dates to the mid 13th century! Now belonging to the Cotes du Roussion Villages AOP, the soils are schist-based (crystalline rock rich in magnesium and potassium) and retain heat so at night when the air cools, the ground reflects heat up to the vines continuing their ripening as evening temperatures plummet in this arid area. These additional hours of warmth boost the potent Mediterranean ripeness while the cool nights make for beautifully balancing acidity!

Serving Suggestions: Grilled, marinated flank steak w finely-chopped garlic, shallots, black pepper. Eggplant parmesan w/ ricotta, smoked paprika, & balsamic vinegar.

BRIGHT LEMON & BRIOCHE, SPICED APPLE & ZESTY MINERAL

We all have to choose our battles, and some of us have proudly taken up arms in pursuit of sparkling wines that taste like Champagne. This is what we’ve been fighting for! Brimming with creamy brioche-ish aromas, glistening with vibrant citrus, and seductively indulging us with spicy apple pie notes, this golden gem carries itself with a distinctively similar poise and balance to the revered bubblies found further west. If it’s become cliché for us to remind each other to drink beautiful sparkling to celebrate being alive, then let’s drink it to celebrate its being alive! Cheers!

TART STRAWBERRY & WHITE CHERRY, CRACKED STONE & COOKIE DOUGH

Of the impressive, non-Champagne areas that produce French sparkling wine under the name, “Crémant,” Alsace is perhaps the very most exciting. Arnaud Baur’s affinity for bubbly offerings has remained consistently and particularly impressive for us, and while this refreshing rosé may not quite rival its white counterparts in yeasty, Champagne-ish maturity, it more than rises to the occasion, stepping sideways and finding a fresher, more fruit-forward voice while remaining chiseled, very dry, and with traces of biscuity richness. Beautiful!

Ferociously fresh, the Brut Nature bubbly from Beaujolais’s Bulliat excels exceptionally. Made entirely from Chardonnay (as is the case with much Crémant de Bourgogne as well as Champagne further north) and, without even the faintest whisper of sweetness, it’s bone dry while maintaining a rich, mouthfilling ripeness reminiscent of crisp pear and creamy apple. A vibrant mineral component comes through elegantly and athletically on the finish. Pop!

Rich, mature, and elegantly vinous, it is perfectly at home at the table, and not to be delegated merely to celebrations. Lush and rich, this is great sparkling wine that happens to be biodynamic. Celine & Laurent Tripoz, who make this beauty, age it to maturity in their garage-turned-winery in the tiny hamlet of Loché near Pouilly-Fuissé. Truly delicious...

Serving Suggestion: Fried oysters w/ tomato remoulade for dipping. Poached eggs served over arancini & prosciutto w/ hollandaise.

Cremant de Loire Brut (Cady, Domaine)

Domaine Cady, Cremant de Loire, Middle Loire Valley, France NV

{organic} 100% Chenin Blanc

ZESTY CITRUS & TANGY APPLE, FLINT, DELICATE GINGER & BISCUIT

The cooler, more northerly regions of France have no shortage of vibrant, elegant sparkling wine to contribute. Joining Champagne are Alsace, Jura, Burgundy, and perhaps most famously, the Middle Loire Valley. Here, Chenin is served well by its tendency toward mouthwatering acidity, mineralistic complexity, and refreshing flavors that manage to layer lemon and tart apple flavors with undercurrents of honey and tropical fruit. This one knows precisely the essential balance to strike between razory, lean restraint and decadent richness of flavor – a tantalizing, seductive dance on the palate.

Serving Suggestion: Delicate freshwater fish w/ butter & shallot. Creamy, ash-dusted goat cheese.Oysters Rockefeller.

Domaine Mucyn, Crozes-Hermitage Rouge "Les Entrecoeurs," Northern Rhone, France 2015

100% Syrah

BLACKBERRY, WHOLESOME LEATHER, BLACK PEPPER & BLACK TEA

While we’d be thrilled to report that the wines of Crozes-Hermitage (roughly halfway between Lyon and Avignon) are always impressive values that hit the spot when we’re craving the imposing reds of the much smaller and more exclusive Hermitage region, this is sadly not often the case. This guy, however, is brimming with intense and distinctive black Syrah fruit and the Northern Rhone’s signature suggestions of smoked meat, spices, and herbs. Truly impressive!

Serving Suggestion: Pan-seared venison (or grass-fed beef) w/ roasted bone marrow & caramelized onions. Smoked seitan “ribs” w/ brown sugar, paprika & butternut squash.

2015 Dolcetto d'Alba "Brichet" (Terrabianca)

Terrabianca, Dolcetto d'Alba “Brichet", Piemonte, Italy 2015

100% Dolcetto

WILD BERRY, PLUM GIVING WAY TO PRUNE, HEADY HERBS

Here we have a another delicious Dolcetto from Terrabianca, albeit a richer and more full-bodied example than one typically finds. This is a vivacious and approachable wine, but with added depth, length, and maturity thanks to fruit from 70-90 year old vines that grow on the sunniest part of the hill. In fact, the name "Brichet" derives from Bricco, which relates to the most advantageously sunny part of a hillside vineyard. Abounding with fresh red and black fruit, and tempered by herbal notes that speak more of wilderness than backyard garden. Less than 175 cases produced.

Taking the title "Campot" from a local term which refers to the uppermost reaches of a sloping vineyard, this Dolcetto is a contemporary example of what the grape is able to achieve. The varietal's typical acidity and tart berryish appeal melds with a lushness which is surprisingly modern considering the estate's reverence for classical methods.

Georg Albrecht Schneider, Dornfelder Trocken, Rheinhessen, Germany 2011

100% Dornfelder

PLUMS, BLACKBERRIES, CHERRIES, FLORAL, SOFT TANNIN

The Schneider estate goes back 7 generations and during harvest, one usually finds 3 generations at work! Red earth soils yield wines with finesse and power. Some Dornfelder wines are off-dry, but we feature this dry version for its quality, unique flavors and drinkability. The softer tannin is appealing, especially in warm weather, so you can even chill this wine lightly to bring on the ripe fruit flavors. The refreshingly tart palate is like a canvas to paint this very dark purple/red colored wine.

Serving Suggestion: A match for spicy beef or pork ribs in red BBQ sauce; eggplant parmesan - nice and gooey with fresh mozzarella and ripe tomatoes; and Korean barbecue.

2014 Douro "Andreza" Tinto Reserva (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto Reserva "Andreza", Douro, Portugal 2014

40% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinto Roriz

FIRM PLUM & DRIED MISSION FIG, WISPS OF CEDAR & VANILLA

Representing a somewhat more modernist slant on the classically dark and elegantly rugged unfortified reds of the Douro valley, Lua Cheia's "Andreza" is named for a particularly stunning bend among the region's otherworldly (and very steep) vineyard-scape. The typical purple-black fruit and mouthfilling majesty are still very much in play, but the stern structure and dusty earthen tones which often populate these wines have been resculpted into something a bit more creamy and cosmopolitan. A delicious twist!

Serving Suggestion: Red-wine marinated roast pork loin w/ garlic, shallots, & white beans. Tender Moroccan stewed goat w/eggplant puree & lemony boiled potato salad.

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto, Douro, Portugal 2015

Touriga Franca & Many More

BLACK PLUM & BERRIES. BOLD, RIPE, & DARK. FULL-BODIED

Often as vines grow older, their production of grapes diminishes to the point that growers will rip them out and replant younger, more vigorous ones. The problem is that younger vines rarely produce wines with as much richness and character as the older, more established ones do. This field blend of Touriga Franca and up to twenty two other traditional Douro varieties comes from a vineyard composed entirely of these old and very special vines which haven't been sacrificed in the name of higher yields. Try a bottle and taste the wisdom that comes with age!

Serving Suggestions: Veal shank in a stew of red wine, onions, carrots, potatoes and a fistful of thyme, rosemary and parsley.

Fermented using only indigenous yeasts and in stainless steel tank as well as traditional stone lagares, the Palestra is a true stunning value. This winery is located in the tiny sub region of Baixo- Corgo where they farm 22 hectares. This red blend is made from traditional Porto grapes, in a dry, full-bodied style. This sensational blend is lush and ripe with plum and raspberry fruits, not oaky, but rich and tasty.

Serving Suggestion: Best with grilled meats or savory, earthy dishes, like grilled portobello mushrooms with lentils.

The name Konstantin Frank is law in the Finger Lakes region, and his eponymous winery is still the apotheosis of quality vinifera on the east coast. This is a classic old-world-style dry riesling bursting with bright citrus (and citrus peel) flavors and bouyant blossomy aromas. But it's the squeaky clean finish that is truly the star here, a thread of acidity and minerality that elevates the wine from "refreshing" to "ethereal."

In rarely-seen solo mode, the Portugieser grape (which has positively nothing to do with Portugal) here provides us with a zesty, dry rosé which clocks in at a magically meager and very vibrant 11.5% alcohol. Intensely drinkable and highly refreshing, this fiercely flavorful yet light-bodied masterpiece from the Rheinhessen’s somewhat red-centric Volker Schäfer packs bold, berryish fruit, striking an exceptional, characterful balance. Sehr gut!

Serving Suggestion: Wurstsalat (sausage salad) w/ gherkins, onion slices, vinaigrette, & mustard. General Tso’s chicken (yeah, it’s not authentic, but it’s comfort food!) w/ broccoli & lo mein.

2015 Elbling Trocken (Hild)

100% Elbling

CITRUS & PEAR, RESTRAINED WHITE FLOWERS, WAXY & FIRM

Just north of the French border and clinging to eastern outline of Luxembourg, Germany's Obermosel (Upper Mosel) features a viticultural world far different from the rightly-revered, Riesling-reigned Mosel appellation deeper inside the country. Here the topography and limestone soil is more like that of the upper Loire or Chablis. The Elbling grape knows what’s up, and its half-sibling Riesling had better not step. This rendition from Elbling icon, Matthias Hild is riper and richer than most, clocking in at 12% alcohol (as opposed to the more typical 10ish). This is wine for minimalists. Crystal-clean clarity and limestone leanness rule the day. Less is more...

From the smale onclave of Haut-Benage, Grand-Portail overlooks the Garonne River from a lofty 100 meters. The young Olivier Cailleux represents the sixth generation of his family to sustainably till the clay and limestone soils here – soils much like those of Sancerre. Perhaps that helps explain why this Sauvignon-based white has a tantalizingly juicy acidity that simply will not quit! It grips the sides of your mouth with a lime-ish zip and won't let go. The finish lasts for minutes...

AROMATIC MANGO & PASSION FRUIT, EXPANSIVE YET BRIGHT

Libero Rillo and his father, Orazio, work their hillside vineyards of Benevento, rich in the fiercely volcanic soils that southern Italy's Campania is renowned for. This soil is most famous for yielding dense, powerful reds. Gaining ground in international acclaim, however, are the classically voluptuous yet balanced whites made from the region's indigenous grapes. Falanghina is perhaps the most fashionable of these and can wonderfully hold on to its acidity, which exists in perfect harmony with the intensely ripe, tropical fruit, resulting in a wine which is distinctly full-figured without being cloying. Falanghina? Bellissima!

Serving Suggestion:

Falanghina is perhaps the most fashionable of these and can wonderfully hold on to its acidity, which exists in perfect harmony with the intensely ripe, tropical fruit, resulting in a wine which is distinctly full-figured without being cloying. Falanghina? Bellissima!

Serving Suggestion:

Neapolitan pizza! Especially the traditional Margherita or ones topped with anchovies and garlic cloves.

Farmhouse Hard Cider (J.K. Scrumpy's)

J.K. Scrumpy's, Farmhouse Hard Cider, Michigan

"When you drink my cider there are no rules. Some like to carefully decant it and leave the pectin and yeast on the bottom of the bottle. At the farm we prefer to “Drink It All” in a large pint glass - leaving the yeast/pectin much as one would with a German Heffe Weise."

Orchard Gate Gold is delicious cold or even at room temperature. It usually depends on how you like to drink regular cider. It is purely a personal preference.

Farmhouse is based on the idea that coffee, like all food, is best enjoyed when it is at its freshest and in season. Here's how farmhouse works: throughout the year, as coffees come and go according to the seasons, we blend them together to underscore their intrinsic deliciousness. And then we sell the result.

JAMMY BERRY, SMOKED BLACK TEA, BIG, LUSH & PEPPERY

At this historic 1139 abbey, the monks used ancient Roman winegrowing methods. Now owned by Nicolas and Henry Ferdinand Bouchard, the estate is updated and making some of the most modern, powerful wines in the Faugeres appellation. These are rich, chewy wines with intense berry flavors. The "La Closeraie" is rich while still maintaining balance. A Closeraie is a small French garden or farm.

Serving Suggestions: Rare grilled leg of lamb or venison. This mouthful of wine will overpower less delicate foods, so go big and gamey.

2015 Favorita "Quattro 20" Langhe Bianco (Terrabianca)

100% Favorita (Vermentino)

HONEYSUCKLE, TART GREEN APPLE PIE, TOASTED WALNUTS

Winegrower Giorgio Alpiste names his wines after the parcel of land on which the grapes are grown. In the case of "Quattro 20 (Venti)" (or "four winds") his Favorita vines flourish on the sandy, south-facing slopes of his family's farm in the Piemonte town of Mango, where refracted sunlight from the Ligurian Sea accentuates the grape's natural minerality and slightly sharp acidic finish. This makes it a fantastic wine to pair with rich cheeses and pasta dishes dressed with butter and herbs.

Serving Suggestions: Tajarin (hearty egg yolk pasta) with butter, sage, and white truffles, or baked trout with lemon and tarragon.

Final Call (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, Serious Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

VERY DRY & WINEY. MOUTH-WATERING & AROMATIC

Serious Cider is .5% residual sugar, comparable to a classic white such as Pinot Grigio or Gruner Veltliner. The high tannin apples in this blend, the acidity and CO2 add to the perception of dryness. This blend includes their English apples, which are all inedible from their high tannin and acid. Drink Serious Cider as one would drink dry champagne—before dinner with fatty nibbles like cheese. The EU allows up to 15 g/l sugar in Brut champagne; at 10 g/l Serious Cider is a Brut cider.

Serving Suggestion: Great as a refreshing aperitif or with double and triple cream soft cheeses. The perfect cider for oysters and light seafood.

Kopke, Fine Ruby Port, Oporto, Portugal, NV (375 ml)

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tino Cão

BRIGHT RED, LOADS OF CHERRY FRUIT, BALANCED ALCOHOL, FRESH

Kopke is the oldest port wine company in Portugal, dating back to 1638 when two German pioneers settled in Duoro to make wine. The current cellars are over seventy years old and in 1999 the winemaking facility was completely modernized. They have one of the deepest and broadest port wine libraries in the world for old vintages with 370 years of port wine production. While their focus is on tawny ports, this Ruby port is a delicious daily style of bright bouncy ruby red nectar. It’s fresh and ready to drink, does not require aging and shows true port character with out being overly sweet.

Serving Suggestion: Try this with strong flavored cheese like our Hook’s creamy blue, or with poached pears, dried figs and walnuts as part of a dessert.

Jann Hinrich Andresen lived an unusual life. In 1840, at the age of 14, he sailed to Porto from the island of Föhr off the coast of the Netherlands. Five years later, at the unbelievable age of 19, he founded the port house that still carries his name. Almost 200 years later, Andresen is one of the few 100% family-owned port houses, and has become internationally known for its high quality products. Their Fine Tawny offers a perfume of raspberry preserves and warm baking spices. Caramel, hazelnut, and sweet tobacco leaf come out to play on the palate. A perfect port to convert the non-port drinker, and an incredible value.

Serving Suggestion: Gingerbread cake baked with chai spices, topped with cream cheese frosting and chunks of tooth-tender toffee.

{organic} 100% Palomino

REFRESHING YET RICH...OCEANIC, ALMONDY PERFUME!

Brimming with an almond-like waxiness, savory mystique, and a powerful suggestion of salinity (without any actual saltiness, obviously), this is a wine that you may find yourself wanting to eat as much as drink. It’s perplexing, perhaps, that it can manage to be as clean as refreshing it is. This is the coveted conundrum of Fino! Completely dry and clocking it at a relatively gentle 15% alcohol, this isn’t as much an acquired taste as it is a friend you’ve always known you’ve had but haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting.

Serving Suggestion: Marcona almonds are practically its soulmate. Seafood spreads (even our Carolinian Calabash stylings) are a dream.

First Fruit Cider (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, First Fruit Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

SPICY APPLE, PEAR & CITRUS. RICH, LIGHTLY SWEET & TART

First Fruit is 1.3% residual sugar and comparable to medium dry aromatic American white or, if sparkling, a Prosecco. It is more fruity and aromatic than their Serious Cider, yet because of the acid (from the crabapples and higher CO2 levels) tastes more “tart” rather than “sweet”. First Fruit is a balanced food-friendly cider that pairs well with many flavor combinations. Thomas Jefferson would have consumed this cider on its own.

Serving Suggestions: Washed rind and aged cheeses. Also, a great counterpart for very spicy dishes and sushi kicked up with wasabi.

2013 Fixin Rouge Vielles Vignes "En Tabellion" (Rossignol, Domaine Philippe)

Domaine Phillippe Rossignol, Fixin Rouge Vielles Vignes "En Tabellion", Burgundy, France 2013

100% Pinot Noir

VIOLET PLUM & RICH CHERRY, CLOVE & DILL, PEPPERY GRANITE

Fixin, one of the northernmost outposts of the famed world-capital of Pinot Noir, the Cote de Nuits, may remain in the shadows of the area’s other (often ultra-expensive) appellations like Gevrey-Chambertin or Echezeaux, but that doesn’t keep it from being an immensely exciting frontier for adventurous enthusiasts of red Burgundy. The wine’s voluptuous violet fruit, fresh acidity, and beautifully balanced tannic structure could almost evoke an image of the Cote d’Or (the greater northern Burgundian countryside) with it’s distinctive, forest-topped banks, stone walls, and gnarled but beautifully fruit-bearing vines. Divine!

Serving Suggestion: Bacon-cloaked roast quail brushed w/ butter & served w/ white asparagus & wild rice. Cottage cheese-stuffed portobello caps w/ dill & chives served w/ toasted pumpernickel rusks.

SPICED STRAWBERRY & CHERRY FRUIT WITH A LONG FINISH

Madame Frédérique Piret has technically taken over for her "retired" husband Jacky. Jacky does no less than before, it's just a French legal thing about his retirement age. The estate goes back generations and this plot has an average age of 60 year old vines. 100% hand harvested and aged using traditional carbonic maceration techniques, results in a rich, strawberry and cherry fruit laden wine of medium to full-body and a ringer for their brothers in Burgundy. Much bolder than you would expect of Beaujolais.

Serving Suggestion: Turkey dark meat, i.e. thigh and leg with black pepper and butter under the skin or roasted butternut squash with caramelized onions and savory cream.

This outstanding ambassador for the lofty heights of Cru Beaujolais shares with its slightly more concentrated colleagues from Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent a fiercely firm freshness. Hailing from the Moriers climat (a prized cru within this possibly most prized of all Beaujolais crus), 45-year old vines struggle to thrive in the austere granite soil they call home, whose notable pink hue is an almost-visible artifact emerging through the vibrantly berryish, resplendently spicy finish. Rich and refreshing!

FLOWERY, FRESH & FRUITY, SWEET, BRANDY AROMATICS

The AOC Floc de Gascogne is relatively new, established in just 1990. The wine is used as an aperitif and made by blending 2/3 fresh grape juice with 1/3 brandy. In this case it is blended with Armagnac and both must come from the same vineyard. No fermentation occurs. After fortifying the grape juice to between 16% and 18% alcohol, it must be cellared for 10 months and then approved by committee from the appellation before being sold.

Serving Suggestion: Best used as an aperitif wine before dinner, or with a Foie Gras course and some people enjoy this after dinner.

Wicked Weed, Foeder-Aged Belgian Style Ale Brewed w/ Plums, Currants, and Belgian Candy Sugar [375ml bottle], Asheville, NC

(12.1% abv)

The Ancient Masters cellared their secret in the subterranean library, deep within the temple walls. The name “Arcanic” was whispered amongst the Brothers, their lips trembling with terror. Judging the new generation unworthy, the Masters fearfully concealed Arcanic to prevent its corruption. Ignatius the Faithful sought truth through revelation, and stole into the night with the book of Arcanic. Struck blind by its brilliance, Ignatius stumbled through the Hinterlands, guided only by the faith that he would one day discover someone worthy of the truth. Blind faith directed his path to you.

Arcanic is a Foeder-Aged Belgian-Style Ale brewed with Belgian candy sugar, currants, and plums.

Monzio Compagnoni, Franciacorta Brut Rosato, Lombardy, Italy 2008

80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay

DELICATE MOUSSE, POMEGRANATE & WHITE CHERRY, GENTLE SPICE

Not far from Milan, Lombardy's Franciacorta region has provided Italy since 1967 with an official (and very eloquent) answer to France's Champagne. Viticulture has existed here, however, much longer. Today, both the grapes used and the methods employed are, by law, modeled after those of Champagne while guidelines and restrictions are, impressively, even more stringent and conducive to quality. In 1987, 20 years after the area's DOC status became cemented, a young Marcel Monzio Compagnoni founded the estate responsible for this elegantly subtle and intoxicatingly-perfumed bubbly.

Serving Suggestion: Mild sashimi (Snapper or Yellowfin, for instance). Triple cream cheeses. Quiche w/ smoked trout, spinach, & a flaky, buttery crust.

On the very edge of Italy - less than four miles from its border with Slovenia - the Visintini siblings Cinzia, Palmira and Oliviero continue the good work of their great-grandfather Domenico, who bought the estate in the late 1800s. Their wine cellar dates to the 1200s; there is some serious history here, but their winery is very modern. This juicy Franconia is hand-harvested and fermented in cement tanks, and that's all they do - their work in the cellar is minimal, but their work in the vineyards is extensive. With certified organic vines moving toward biodynamic, the Visintinis are continuing the 800 year legacy of their land.

A tiny ruin in Italy's Piemonte produces some of the areas most expressive wines. The land was bestowed to the Rava Family by Genoese aristocracy and yields spectacular yet humble results – now bottled bearing the "La Casaccia" royal seal. This particular wine’s star is the little known varietal, Fresia, which is a close relative to Nebbiolo and produces wines with a similar brightness and fragrance while remaining lighter, gentler, and more immediately approachable. The flavors of tart strawberry and raspberry are at the forefront of this gem of a wine. Freshly cut herbs and fragrant violets are also on the nose and the palette, accentuating the bold tannins and tangy acidity.

TART APRICOT & PEAR SKIN, EARTHY HONEY & PINENUT

This is classic, unfiltered, uncensored orange wine – the centuries-old style that eccentric winemakers on both sides of the Italian/Slovenian border have turned into a cult sensation. Often talked about but rarely seen, these are made from white grapes and treated to extended skin contact. This process is an integral part of red wine production, but white winemaking seldom involves skins once grapes are crushed. Two months of fermentation by wild yeast in both steel and oak accentuates exotic honeyed aromas and a rich, slightly tannic mouthfeel.

Its reds team with deep purple fruit and a wholesome spiciness which is striking yet understated.

Forged in the cooler, arid reaches of Madrid's Sierra de Gredos, this elegantly spry Garnacha combines the varietal's signature violet intensity with a firm, lithe frame and healthy acidity owing much to the region's high elevation and mountainous terrain. Bernabeleva (meaning "forest/path of the bear" was founded in 1923 by Vincente Álvarez-Villamil, who named it for ancient bear/bull/boar carvings in stone which can be found in nearby Ávila.

RICH BLACKBERRY, SPICY FIG, SILKY COCOA

2016 Gavi (Massone, Stefano)

Stefano Massone, Gavi, Piemonte, Italy 2016

100% Cortese

FRESH, RIPE, SPRITZY SUBLIME LIME-NESS

Stefano Massone gives us a superb example of great Gavi made from the Cortese grape. This is sublime and limey with a medium-full body and crisp, juicy ripeness. The pale straw color is deceptive as the wine tastes bigger than it looks. Maybe it's the pear and apple flavors oozing across the palate? Or perhaps the freshness of the grapes twinkling on your tongue? In either case you will exclaim "Great Gavi!"

Serving Suggestion: Best with fresh fish dishes, baked with lemon, olive oil and herbs; or vegetable ratatouille over pounded chicken breast.

Gentiane - Quina (Quinquina Digestif) (Bonal)

Bonal, Gentiane-Quina, Quinquina Digestif, Jura, France NV 16% abv

Made from grape must, bark and gentian (from the mountains of the Grande Chartreuse), created in 1865 by a monk, doctor, brother Raphael (whose real name was Hippolyte Bonal). Traditionally consumed as a digestive or as a mixer in a cocktail. This is a bitter herb mix and one of the original great cocktail mixers available again in the US.

Since 1865, this delicious aperitif wine has stood apart for

its exceptional complexity, delightful flavors and stimulating

palate. Serious to its role as aperitif, it was known as

“ouvre l’appétit” - the key to the appetite. Traditionally enjoyed neat or with a twist; also may enhance classic drinks in place of sweet red vermouth.

Domaine Phillippe Rossignol, Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France 2013

100% Pinot Noir

INTENSE BLACK CHERRY, SWEET TOBACCO & BRIARWOOD, VELVETY & DEEP

A one of many distinctive crowning jewel in the Pinot Noir-dominated Cote de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin lies just north of the regions responsible for what are, on average, the world’s most expensive wines. In fact, it’s unsurprisingly very, very rare that we encounter an example (let alone one that lives up to the lofty reputation of its origin) that clocks in within our infamous $50 ceiling. This stunning rendition was introduced to us by inspired importer Charles Neal, whose impeccable discoveries always overdeliver. Magnifique!

Serving Suggestion: Braised duck breast w/ bay leaves & sherry. Black mushroom risotto w/ peas & dill.

BLACK FOREST CHERRY PRESERVES. WOODSY SPICE & ROAST CHESTNUTS

The Cote de Nuits, the northern half of Burgundy’s revered Cote-d’Or, has been home to the world’s most sought-after Pinot Noir for centuries, and the Gevrey-Chambertin commune is one of its famous focal points. Seguin has a rich history here, the estate’s forbearer, Alexis, actually working on the front lines to battle phylloxera (late 1800s) as an expert rootstock grafter in addition to being an accomplished winemaker. This ambassadorial Burgundy combines bright yet earthy, kirsch-like red fruit with wispy, wintry underbrush, chestnut, and gentle sandalwood-like savoriness. Magnifique!

PERFUMY PINEAPPLE, ROSES, LYCHEE. VERY DRY

In the classical style of Alsatian Gewurztraminer, this white is very aromatic and fruit-driven on the nose, but follows through with great acidity and more or less dry finish. We love the clean, pure flowery notes in between the fruit. No oak to be found, this wine is light in acid and full on flavor.

LYCHEE & MANGO, CANDIED GINGER & SWEET SPICE

Look at your wine, now back to me. This is the wine your wine could smell like if it were Grand Cru Gewürtztraminer. Powerfully aromatic and fresh, with intense aromas of tropical fruit, Mandarin orange, grapefruit zest, ripe canteloupe, gardenia flowers and roses. Very full-bodied and rich, with a honeyed sweetness and a clean finish. The Pfersigberg soil is oysters (well, limestone), and is so light colored it reflects the sun on to the grapes, ripening them perfectly. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a tropical beach. I'm on a horse.

Serving suggestion: Vegetables & shrimp in a sweet & spicy Thai red curry sauce. Tarte Tatin w/ fresh whipped cream.

90% Godello, 10% Treixadura

WHITE PEACH & LIME, MINERALISTIC ELEGANCE, ROUND YET FIRM

Godello is the undisputed monarch of whites from the more inland reaches of Spain’s Galicia and plays an important role in northern Portugal as well. This outing from our friend and hero of unusually economical Galician offerings, Manuel Mendez, aptly showcases the variety’s propensity toward a minerally, medium-weight, vaguely Burgundian persona. In fact, fans of unoaked Chardonnay will really sink their teeth into this. As intriguing as the unspoiled hills of Galicia!

GUARANA & PEAR, ELEGANT MINERAL, LUSH YET BRIGHT

Tucked away in Northwestern Spain's Galicia, where some of the country's best white wines are grown on misty hillsides, is a lesser-known but very exciting area known as Monterrei. Here we find one of Manuel Mendez's three small estates. Not far from Portugal's border, these drier, inland mountain reaches provide the lush, subtle, complex Godello grape one of its favored environments. This spectacular specimen touts the variety's textbook combination of a white Burgundian build, mineral, and tropical fruit with stunning depth.

HEADY FLOWER GARDEN AROMAS, LUSH WHITE FRUIT, GOLDEN APPLE

High up in Galicia, the Godello grapes that make up this exquisite wine cling precariously to the steep mountain slopes. At inclines over 40 degrees, they are drenched in sun and ripen beautifully, all while absorbing a mineral zing from the broken shale soil. Effortlessly displaying complex aromatics and light polleny musk, this is a show-stopper and an amazing value.

Serving Suggestions: White anchovies with a shake of pepper, drizzled in olive oil. Roasted red and yellow peppers over grilled bread, with slivers of sheepy Spanish cheese.

With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in our Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit. Before boiling, the wort is kettle soured with lactobacillus, imparting an initial refreshing tartness that gives way to a subtle fullness. Flavors of guava and peach are followed by a slight sea salt dryness and lemon sourness that is enhanced by coriander and post-fermentation additions of salt. The finish is dry, effervescent, and lemon tangy, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze.

18% ABV

RASPBERRY, BITTER ORANGE, QUININE, SPICED COCOA, HERBS

The Violet brothers, Pallade and SImon, first concocted their recipe for a chinchona-based apéritif in 1866, inspired by the popularity of quinine-based tonics made from from the medicinal plant entrusted to Europeans by the Quechua indians of Peru. Byrrh began to reappear on mirrored bar shelves in 2012 thanks to the "wine archaeologists" at Haus Alpenz. With a gentle sweetness that offsets its complex blend of quinine, citrus peel, bitter herbs and cocoa, Byrrh is further matured in oak, which mellows its flavors and gives it a comforting warmth.

Serving Suggestions: Straight with a twist of lemon, on the rocks alone or with a splash of soda and an orange wedge, or blended into a cocktail with Armagnac and the mixer of your choice.

DARK PLUMS & BERRY JAM; SPICY, HERBACEOUS, EARTHY

Welcome to Daniele Saccoletto's world, where the DOC (Italian wine authorities, but not cool like us) doesn't matter. Extremely long fermentation times with natural yeast, followed by years of aging, result in some awesome, unique expressions of familiar Piemontese wines. His Grignolino is brick orange (a sure sign of a red wine with some years to it), with extracted plum, strawberry jam, stewed cherry, green olives and spice. Serious tannins are balanced by bright acidity, making this terrific with a wide range of foods.

Serving Suggestions: Pizza w/ olive oil, garlic, roasted red peppers and finocchiona salami. Porcini mushroom and rosemary risotto topped w/ sliced ribeye steak, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and chopped chives.

Grolleau Gris is the lighter skinned, pink-ish variant of a once-ubiquitous Loire grape responsible for an ocean's worth of crisp rosés and light-bodied reds. We don’t encounter Grolleau-based wines as much as we once did, and Grolleau Gris is an outright rarity! Thankfully, this rendition from Jérome Choblet, while made in very limited quantities, makes up for all the years that we didn’t know we were missing the variety.

Serving Suggestion: Maki sushi w/ snapper, salmon, pickled plum, & cucumber. Vegetarian bibimbap (and other lighter, medium-spicy Korean dishes).

CRYSTALLINE MINERALITY, RICH YET RESTRAINED, TRADEMARK WHITE PEPPER

We adore the enchantingly unique qualities of Austria's Grüner Veltliner, and it's even easier to worship when it comes as a screaming value like this offering from Nastl out of Langenlois in Niederösterreich (lower Austria). The Nastl winery has been family-run since 1656, and all five members of the Nastl family are directly involved in the business, whether in the vineyards or in their "Heurigen," a classic example of an Austrian wine restaurant which serves homemade wine with homemade dishes. This wine is strikingly refreshing with fierce minerality and the hallmark Grüner tingle of white pepper on the finish.

100% Gruner Veltliner

VIBRANT CITRUS & PEACH,  WHITE PEPPER & MINERAL, GRÜNER GOLD

Hailing from the precariously steep inclines of the Wachau’s vineyards, the always-excellent T26 cuvée takes its name from an eventful tasting session with Austrian importer, Klaus Wittauer, who was in the Mittelbach family cellar at their Tegernseerhof winery, searching for his absolute favorite among the estate’s tanks of recently vinified less-expensive Grüner.  When he found the one, he exclaimed, "This is it!  I'll take the whole tank."  That tank was #26, and “T26" has sense served as the nickname for the estate’s greatest value outing in Grüner Veltliner each year. Classic stone-fruit and zesty citrus carry notes of the variety’s hallmark white pepper and flint. Prost!

Serving Suggestion: Juicy fried or oven-roasted chicken w/ crisp skin. Wiener Schnitzel or other breaded, fried cutlets. Mild, flavorful cheeses.

Anton Bauer’s Austrian offerings are a generation’s worth of ambassadors from the central European nation’s world of wine. For many living in NC, his “Gmork” served as an inaugural Grüner. As Austrian wine has exploded into popularity stateside, prices have understandably not remained static, but this delightful Grüner cuvée (a Grüvée?) brings us back down to earth and kicks it old-school Österreich with the kind of awesome value that we recall from almost bygone days. Prost to this classic Grüner!

Werner and Angela Michlits run the wine side of the family farm. Their farm is a true biodynamic universe. They grow vegetable crops, raise cows and pigs, make wine, produce mico-brew beer and heirloom apple cider - all biodynamically. While Grüner Veltliner is not typical from Burgenland, this is a standout for its dry racy style layered with exotic citrus, fresh zippy texture and lip smacking dry acidity.

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before us looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintage was brilliant. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name. Under the tutelage of Anton Bauer, Paul gives us a bright, fresh Grüner Veltliner in a dry floral style that has crisp acidity and pure drinkability.

It's easy to think of Bordeaux as stodgy and old-fashioned – dismissing it as something for rich Englishmen to have their butlers fetch, but sometimes it's nice to be reminded just why Bordeaux is loved by aristocrats. Located between Pauillac and Margaux (the two famous towns many of those $1,000 bottles come from), the Chateau du Raux has been producing classy, classic claret since the estate was handed down from mother to daughter in 1876.  Now the youngest generation of the family, Patrick, makes rich, savory reds from an even blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in a balanced, elegant, traditional style. If you want to feel princely on a plebeian budget, you ought to try this while it's still available.

Serving: Classic steakhouse fare (you are drinking like an aristocrat after all). Ribeye au poivre w/ bearnaise on top & buttery potatoes.

Meinklang, Hárslevelü "H15," Somlo, Hungary 2015

INTENSELY FLORAL, TONGUE-TINGLING ACIDITY & SPICE, MINERAL BACKBONE

Hárslevelü is best known for its role in the production of Tokaji, the famous dessert wine of Hungary, where it plays second fiddle to the better-known Furmint grape. In this instance, the biodynamic wizards of Meinklang grow their Hárslevelü in the volcanic soil of Somló in Northwestern Hungary and give it a starring role. This wine is unabashedly floral, allowing the grape to live up to its name, which translates to "linden leaf" in Hungarian. Densely-bodied, reminiscent of ripe stone fruit, and backed by a trio of high acidity, wild spice, and firm minerality, it is simultaneously impressive and friendly.

Serving Suggestion: Sticky rice w/ NC shrimp, green chile oil, mustard greens, kimchi, & soft-boiled egg. Peruvian charcoal-roasted chicken with spicy cilantro-mayo and black beans.

“Many things contribute to flavor in beer, and with Pinner it’s a focus on hops and malt–with a considerable nod to the hops,” says Oskar Blues ColoRADo head brewer Tim Matthews. “With the lower ABV, layers of flavor build on one another– with one sip citrus, the next sip pineapple, next sip papaya, next sip passion fruit, next sip toasted bread–and then on to the next pint.”

Dry-hopping with several different heady hops, including a killer experimental variety, gives PINNER this tropical, stoned fruit aroma with hints of pine and smooth malt in the flavor.

Imperial Pumpkin Ale "Xibalba" [500ml bottle] (Wicked Weed Brewing)

Wicked Weed, Imperial Pumpkin Ale "Xibalba" [500ml bottle], Asheville, NC

(8.7%) pronounced “She-Bahl-Bah”

We love putting a twist on traditional beers and Xibalba is the Wicked Weed-a-fied Pumpkin ale. We used 50 pounds of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spicing, and then amped up this ale with 100lbs of French Broad Chocolate cocoa nibs, vanilla, ancho chili, habanero, and serrano peppers. The result is a spicy, chocolaty, slightly evil pumpkin beer that packs a punch.

Tasting Notes: Nose: Baking chocolate with a little more milkiness. Not a lot of pepper up front. Slight pumpkin spice nuance. Taste: Bitter chocolate, with peppers and a warming finish in back of the throat. Big body. Dessert driven. Heat builds and adds balanced complexity.

Imperial Pumpkin Ale Bourbon Barrel Aged "Xibalba" [500ml bottle] (Wicked Weed Brewing)

Wicked Weed brewed this beer slightly differently from how they brew Xibalba. For barrel-aged Xibalba, we ramped up the ABV on the Imperial Brown base beer. We also waited to infuse the Serrano and Habanero peppers and Ancho chiles until post barrel aging...allowing for a beautiful spiced aroma. This will be our only batch of BA XIbalba for the year and is a great opportunity to bring in bottles to enjoy now as well as cellar some bottles to enjoy with the release of 2017 BA Xibalba.

Smooth and creamy vanilla tones immediately greet you on the palate, yielding to roasted grains and raw cocoa.

70% Fiano, 30% Greco

DRIED TURKISH APRICOT & WISPY ACACIA, PEAR, WAXY PISTACHIO

Two quintessentially Campagnese grapes, Fiano and Greco, are not only among the most important grapes of Italy's shin-shaped eno-paradise, they're also responsible for some of the the country's most striking whites. Previously reputed to be of Greek origin, these ancient and exotically perfumed varietals can actually be traced back to the very hillsides upon which they are still grown today. Brown dried apricot, quince, and a teasingly delectable firm texture combine with a faint barrique-fermented smokiness to form a refreshingly sophisticated white of fragrant potency and mystery.

Serving Suggestion: Clams w/ pasta & herbs. Savory red wine-poached pear w/ gorgonzola, walnuts, & sea salt.

DECADENT PEAR-LIKE RICHNESS, LEMON CUSTARD, RIVER ROCK MINERALITY

We are always excited to uncork the unique and compelling biodynamic wines from Meinklang, and this delightfully rare Juhfark from their Hungarian vineyards is no exception. Juhfark means "sheep's tail" in Hungarian, a reference to the distinctive shape of the vine's grape clusters. The grape is typically grown in the Somló region of Northwestern Hungary and blended with other regional grapes to produce rich, age-worthy whites. This single-variety version is a lovely golden hue and offers rich aromas of pear, golden raisin, and rocky minerality. The palate is likewise opulent, with a full body, medium-high acid, and a somewhat savory finish.

Serving Suggestion: Sweet potato ravioli w/ mushrooms & kale. Roasted pork shank w/ mustard-sherry glaze & parsley.

2015 Jumilla "Xenysel" (Martinez Verdú, Viñedos y Bodegas J.M.)

Viñedos y Bodegas J.M. Martinez Verdú, Jumilla "Xenysel", Jumilla, Spain, 2015 {sustainable} 100% Monastrell (Pié Franco)

CHOCOLATE-COVERED FIGS, PORT-LIKE CONCENTRATION, DRY YET JUICY

The sprawling, arid vineyards of Jumilla are one of the great strongholds of the increasingly fashionable Monastrell grape (better known to many of us by its French name, Mourvedre). Xenysel, the current iteration of the Martinez Verdú family estate, produces a variety of concentrated, luscious reds, exclusively using the grape. This is one of several to be made courtesy of vines springing from their original rootstock – exceptionally rare in 20th and 21st century Europe. Like brandy-infuesed, chocolate-covered figs, this robust yet very amicable red has a Port-like concentration.

Serving Suggestion:

Prune-stuffed pork shoulder w/beet salad & sour cream. Vegan Pad Thai w/coconut noodles, crushed peanuts & sesame oil.

{sustainable} 40% Monastrell, 30% Tempranillo, 20% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

BIG, BAD, BOLD SPICY RED WITH JUICY BERRY

Carchelo has been a favorite of ours for years. The southeast of Spain is home to Monastrell grapes, possibly the same as France's Mourvedre. These vines are on ungrafted rootstock. Jumilla is Spain's most arid wine district, located inland from the Mediterranean at extreme elevation with rocky soils. With just a bit of French oak barrel aging, the blend is a seductive, powerful, mouth-filling red that shows black fruit to the core.

Serving Suggestion: Monastrell is big and loves to run against grilled meats, smoky Spanish Paprika spice and barbecued pork.

Jurançon, one of France's brightest points for captivating whites, has managed to somehow remain just slightly under the radar despite producing wines that could confidently settle in beside stellar white Burgundies and the cream of the Loire Valley crop. This example from the outstanding Lapeyre estate sensually smolders with etherial floral perfume, tangy orange citrus and firm nectarine, and a waxy nuttiness which impeccably compliments the wine's palate-jumpstarting acidity. Regal, exotic, and unforgettable!

Serving Suggestion: This wine would make an excellent officiator over an adventurous spread of cured ham, hors d'oeuvres, and a variety of cheeses. Mustard seed-rubbed mahi w/ ginger, turmeric, & paprika.

Casalfarneto, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, "Rosae", La Marche, Italy 2013

ORANGE PEEL, CRANBERRY, BRIGHT AND CRISP

Every little corner of Italy seems to have its own indigenous specialty. In the province of Ancona, it is Lacrima.  A rare and ancient grape found nowhere else, Lacrima was almost extinct by the 1980s. Fortunately, various brave growers here on the Adriatic Coast didn't let that happen. Alluringly aromatic and blindingly bright, this crisp, unoaked, hand-harvested red shines in the glass and on the palate with bold, berryish fruit and gentle savory spice.

Serving Suggestion: Take advantage of the freshness and versatility and pair with dishes that you might ordinarily pair with white wines. Roasted white fish covered in a classic Italian tomato sauce w/ capers & olives?

It's dry, lightly effervescent, with a sort of grapey/apple character. Made from red grapes, sans skin contact. Most quaffable and enjoyable chilled in warm weather.

Lambrusco Salamino, Ancellotta

DRY, LIGHT BERRY, HINT OF TANNIN, EFFERVESCENT

"Labrusca" is the Etruscan name for Lambrusco coming from the Latin labrum, meaning "edge." It is believed that Lambrusco grapes grew naturally along the edges of fields cultivated by the Etruscans food crops. Lini was established in 1910 and today is quite possibly the finest Lambrusco in all of Emilia Romagna. Fabio Lini and his daughter Alicia are responsible for this delicious dry, pink version of Lambrusco. Tart and thirst quenching with light tannin from the grape skins, this gentle pink wine has a firm backbone, perfect with picnic food.

Serving Suggestion: Chilled lightly, this dry rosato is picnic wine for everything from chicken salad, tuna salad, humus and veggies, chips and dip. At the dinner table, try a prosciutto and fresh mozzarella cheese pizza.

You might be familiar with this Lambrusco-esque wine if you spend your days strolling the back alleys and piazzas of Naples, but to us North Carolinians it’s a rare, fresh, and exciting addition. Aglianico grapes are harvested from their favorite climes (steep, volcanic slopes), vinified separately, and matched with more obscure Italian field varietals to round out the blend. The result is a lightly sweet, richly fruity, and beautifully structured sparkling red meant to be served with a slight chill.

Serving Suggestions: Pizza Neapolitana with smoked tomatoes. Post dinner treats like bittersweet chocolate torte, or a nice stilton on shortbread like the Brits do.

Sèverine Lemoine and her sister, Melainie Borrelly follow the Borrelly family winegrowing tradition and represent the third generation to farm the Rocalière estate.

Among these is the 2010 “Dentelle Noire” (black lace), which represents an unusually Syrah-dominant Southern Rhone. Inky and aromatic of black fruit, floral spice, and pepper, this matured red manages to be as compelling as it is commanding. This wine opens magnificently in the glass or decanter to show its best. Drinking perfect now, and for the next five years.

Taking its name from the distinctly Japanese art of flower arrangement, this Southern Rhone cuvée goes unusually easy on the Grenache and unsparingly exotic on floral and forest-esque aromatics. Dominated by Mourvedre and Carignan and having undergone an unusually lengthy fermentation and period of skin contact, the inky flavors and distinctive perfumes of these varieties are translated spectacularly and without excessive tannic extraction or edge. Look eastward for pairing inspiration... 

Serving Suggestion: Beef tataki w/ ponzu butter, scallions, & crispy garlic. Chicken heart skewers w/ miso eggplant & king oyster mushroom.

2013 Lirac Rouge "Le Classique" (Rocalière, Domaine la)

Domaine la Rocalière, Lirac Rouge "Le Classique", Rhone Valley, France 2013

{organic} 34% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 33% Mourvedre

BLACK RASPBERRY & DRIED CASSIS, LAVENDER & VIOLETS, SPICY CEDAR

The vineyards of Lirac would be almost contiguous with those of Chateauneuf du Pape were they not separated by the Rhone River itself. Long in the shadows of this famous neighbor on the opposite bank as well as the regal, robust rosé flowing from Tavel to the south, Lirac has never been allowed to be one of the Southern Rhone’s most visible stars. That doesn’t stop it from producing wines that  rival (and often, in terms of value, outshine) those of its more famous surroundings. This offering from the Borrelly family estate bursts onto the scene with bold, blackish-purple fruit, exotic perfume, and a sumptuously toasted oak undercurrent. Magnificently Mediterranean!

Serving Suggestion: Roast duck w/ cranberry-balsamic sauce & rosemary. Savory black bean & sweet potato enchilada w/ tempeh & chipotle.

Lodge Reserve Port (Smith Woodhouse)

Smith Woodhouse, Lodge Reserve Port, Duoro, Portugal, NV

Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional

RUBY RED WITH BRIGHT FRUIT FLAVORS AND SWEET BAKING SPICES

Sourcing from the small 7 hectare vineyard of Quinta da Madalena, all the grapes are still hand harvested and foot tread. In general their ports are a bit less sweet than most. The Lodge Reserve is a blend of reserve wines aged in barrels to mellow their flavor, but not too long to maintain the fresh fruit flavors of a ruby port. This is medium to full-bodied with a warm fruitiness in the center and sweet spices. It’s very rich and a great port value.

Serving Suggestions: Traditional with veined cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Stilton - we offer Hook’s 1 year blue and Rogue’s Smoked Blue. Also great on its own as a dessert.

2016 Loureiro "Colheita Selecionada" (Socalcos do Bouro (Corina Maria Pereira Antunes Almeida))

Socalos do Douro (Corina Maria Pereira Antunes Almeida), Louriero, Vinho Verde, Portugal 2016

100% Loureiro

PASSIONFRUIT & YUZU, CRISP & EXHILARATING, ELIXIR-ESQUE

The Loureiro grape is a native of northern Portugal’s Minho (aka the Vinho Verde region), and, while its name is certainly not a household one,the variety has graced the lips of many wine lovers. This enchantingly radiant rendition combines an intense tropicality with elegant mineralistic flourishes and an appropriately delicate herbal quality (its name does mean “laurel,” after all) that recalls its cool-climated, hilly origins – reminiscent of springtime Appalachia.

Serving Suggestion: Bay leaf-grilled trout w/ mango salsa. Jamaican tempeh turnovers w/ Vidalia, cumin, & mustard seed.

Explosive, dense fruit recalling mission fig and dried cassis is entwined with a healthy dose of both black & white pepper, and the herbs and spices of the Provençal countryside. Vive la Mediterranée!

2013 Macon-Azé (Teppes de Chatenay, Domaine des)

Domaine de Teppes de Chatenay, Macon-Aze, Burgundy, France 2013

{organic} 100% Chardonnay

CRISP ORCHARD FRUIT, ANTIQUE CEDAR & POTPOURRI, BRIGHT & FIRM

At the heart of Burgundy’s sprawling, southern, Chardonnay-centric Maconnais region, the Macon Aze AOC exists exclusively for the production of white wines, and we’ve come to expect quality and variety from its output. This offering is a firm, bright, and oldschool manifestation of the grape and represents neither Chardonnay’s creamier, more voluptuous potential or its ultra-clean, citrusy side. Instead, a rustically orchard-ish and malic with the subtle, lightly cedary perfume of old oak barrels combine to create a refreshing, old-world delight.

Serving Suggestion: Chicken (or tuna) salad sandwich w/ green apple on pumpernickel w/ leafy greens. Chardonnay-battered tempura onion rings & artichoke hearts w/ miso soup w/ deep fried tofu & shiitakes.

{biodynamic} 100% Chardonnay

FULL & FLAVORFUL, LEMON, HAZELNUT, CARAMEL. SERIOUS!

Gandines really surprised us with this compelling, and serious White Burgundy. Fully ripe and lush, but with juicy acidity and complex minerality. This kind of power usually comes from the big boys north of the Macon in the Cotes de Beaune. Aged in enormous 3000 liter old oak barrels that soften the wine without giving it any oak flavor, it is possibly the most impressive Chardonnay available at this price!

Serving Suggestion: Steamed or raw oysters. Black sea bass poached in olive oil with fresh thyme. Roast turkey with truffles or chanterelles.

2005 Macvin du Jura (Labet, Julien)

Julien Labet, Macvin du Jura, Jura, France 2015, {organic} Savignin 18% abv

BITTERSWEET DRIED APRICOT, SPICY GINGER, RICH & COMPLEX, HEADY

Julien Labet is a passionate winemaker, fiercely devoted to his old Jura vines and relentless in his pursuit of perfection. Since taking over from his father in 1997, he has converted his family’s 13 hectare estate to organic viticulture and spawned a collection of natural wines, using ambient yeasts and abstaining from added sulphur in an effort to preserve the purity of his product. In the case of this Macvin, however, no fermentation occurs whatsoever. Instead, the juice and must from Savignin grapes is reduced to half its volume using heat before being fortified with brandy, then transferred to oak barrels to age for six years. An extremely rare and marvelous treat. Once opened, use a nice stopper to re-cork it and it will last in your fridge for at least a month.

Serving Suggestion: An exceptional digestif. Pair w/ potent aged cheeses like Beemster X-O.

2016 Malagousia (Zafeirakis, Domaine)

Domaine Zafeirakis, Malagousia, Tyrnavos, Greece 2016

100% Malagousia

FRESH & FLORAL, TROPICAL & CITRUSY, RICH

Many Greek white wines are lean, high acid, and mineral driven - think Assyrtiko. Here's a Greek white for lovers of the Rhone Valley, bursting with mango, nectarine, lime, and floral aromas, with a full, rich mouthfeel reminiscent of Viognier. The trademark acidity and minerality are still there, don't worry - but they're acting in harmony with the other players on the stage. It's what Dionysus would have wanted, being the god of wine and theatre (and madness, but let's not worry about that yet).

Serving suggestion: Dolmades stuffed w/ rice, pine nuts, fennel root, & minced chicken. Astakomakaronada - boiled lobster served over pasta, in a garlicky tomato & wine sauce.

At heights of close to 4,000 feet, a vine produces some serious fruit. Harvested at dawn in the cool morning hours, this Malbec features blackberry and plummish fruit playing with soft tannin and a kiss of oak. Perfectly balanced and oozing with pleasure, it is grown, produced, and bottled entirely by a small family winery - a rarity for Malbecs in this price range!

Pulenta Estate, Malbec "I", Alto Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina 2014

100% Malbec

BLACKBERRY & PLUM, VIOLET, SUBTLE SMOKY MINERAL

This cuvée's title (simply the roman numeral "I" ) identifies the Malbec grape, not surprisingly, as the Pulenta family's first priority. Eschewing the ultra-concentrated and monstrously fruity style of many contemporary Argentine Malbecs, they've focused on the balance which is possible between elegance and power. A delicate smoky finesse derived from aging in large French oak barrels supplements and supports the varietal's trademark flavors of black fruit and chocolate. The Pulenta family, descendants of Italian immigrants, represent three generations of viticulture in Argentina.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled flank steak with a cilantro and parsley chimichurri. Potato empanada with ground beef, cilantro, and garlic.

2016 Mencia "Finca Os Cobatos" (Pazo Das Tapias, Bodegas)

Bodegas Pazo das Tapias, Mencia “Finca Os Cobatos”, Galicia, Spain 2015

100% Mencia

LIVELY AND ENERGETIC, DARK BERRIES, FRESH HERBS

With successful estates in Rias Baixas and Ribeiro already, in 2006 Manuel Mendez completed his Galician trifecta with the purchase Pazo das Tapias in Monterrei.  One of the oldest vineyards in the area, the estate is planted to the regions signature varieties: Godello for white and Mencia for red.  Mendez's Mencia presents the grape in a classic, minimalist form.  No pursuit of overripeness or heavy oak here, this shines with the grape's signature freshness and tell-tale herbaceous hints.  Juicy acidity and a light frame make this a wine to keep reaching for on the dinner table.  Not to mention, Mencia at an everyday price is almost unheard of.

Serving Suggestion: A heaping plate of cured jamon Iberico accompanied by bits of Spain's tetilla queso.  Root vegetables on the grill, drizzled with olive oil and Maldon salt.

2011 Mentrida Crianza "Besanas" (Villarta, Hacienda)

Hacienda Villarta, Crianza "Besanas", Mentrida, Spain 2011

Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

BLACK PLUM & CASSIS, RICH VANILLA & PEPPERCORN, CURED LIME

This seamless blend of the native Tempranillo with a veritable "who's who" assortment of French expatriate varietals injects elegant dark fruit with an elegantly oaken maturity and exotic spice – a delicious value with timeless style.

Serving Suggestions: Roasted bell peppers stuffed w/ ground beef, seasoned w/ tarragon & paprika, adorned w/ shavings of cow & sheep's milk cheeses. Slices of Vietnamese-inspired roast beef w/ basil & delicately-applied chili garlic sauce.

2013 Mercurey Rouge (Vieille Fontaine, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Vieille Fontaine, Mercurey Rouge, Burgundy, France 2013

{sustainable} 100% Pinot Noir

BLACK CHERRY & PLUM, EARTHY MYSTIQUE & BRIGHT MINERALITY

The Mercurey region's name may evoke the silvery, semi-solid undulations of shape-shifting robotic weapons or one of the many reasons to avoid canned tuna (which you probably shouldn’t pair, in any case, with this wine), but it’s actually one of the most celebrated areas within central Burgundy’s Cote Chalonnaise. David Déprés works the 40-70 year old vines in the three acres of his small estate which fall within the Mercurey appellation to produce this elegant, vibrant, and ageworthy example of Pinot Noir. Firm yet fine in the tannin department and shimmering with cherry and plum, this is a wine which finds its very Burgundian mark somewhere between earthy intrigue and a freshness of firm fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Round roast w/ roasted plums & collard greens w/ thyme & garlic. Mushroom paté.

2016 Moulin-à-Vent (Bulliat, Vignoble)

Vignoble Bulliat, Moulin-à-Vent, Beaujolais, France, 2016

{organic} 100% Gamay

GOJI & POMEGRANATE, DUSTY CEDAR & ORANGE ZEST, WINTER SPICE

Moulin-à-Vent, if not the outright king of the Beaujolais crus in terms of intensity, is certainly a contender. The affable Gamay shows its sterner side here, often without the softening impact of carbonic maceration. This example combines the classic juiciness and berryish perfume that draws many wine lovers to the best and brightest crus of Beaujolais with a spicy, oak-infused potpourri and a firmness that interestingly and impressively recalls youthful Nebbiolo. Voilà!

Serving Suggestion: Peking duck w/ hoisin sauce & grilled sweet potato wedges & string beans w/ shallots. Black bean & sweet potato enchilada w/ cumin, walnuts, & sour cream.

GREEN APPLE, LIVELY LIME, HONEYSUCKLE & A SMALL BITE OF PEACH

Anne Amie’s Müller-Thurgau vines are pushing 34 years old, making them some of the most venerable in Oregon.

Serving Suggestions: Spicy laksa or Thai drunken noodles. Boudin Blanc with sauerkraut would work too.

Domaine des Herbauges, Muscadet "Clos de la Fine", Cotes de Grand Lieu - Sur Lie, Loire Valley, France, 2015

{sustainable} 100% Melon

LASER-FOCUSED MINERALITY, SPRITZ AND PEARS

Herbauges overlooks the Grandlieu Lake, thus the name of this cuvée. This most prestigious vineyard is the top in the appellation. The AOC was created in 1995 and represents 17 communes around the Grandlieu. Intensely aromatic with pear and white chalk flavors, this very dry Muscadet shows a bit of spritz in the mouth from the wonderful acidity and literally mouthwatering flavors. Yes, a veritable lake in your mouth after you swallow!

Serving Suggestion: Shellfish is a must, and if you dip it in a little clarified butter you will have a wine powerful enough to complement and never compete. Crab, oyster, mussels, or scallops tonight?

Domaine Herbauges, Muscadet "Le Legendaire", Cotes de Grand Lieu (Sur Lie), Loire Valley, France, 2003

{sustainable} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

goat gouda, macerated oranges, blow your muscadet up

Did you see that vintage?! Okay, the vines are 75-100 years old planted on a tiny 3 hectare plot in granite soils with pebbles. Get this, the wine is slowly stirred with lees contact in glass-lined tanks with a little propeller for 60 continuous months- unheard of! Legally this is TOO long to have "sur lie" on the label. This is possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity to taste such a complex wine made in a completely traditional/untraditional manner. The aromas are of goat cheese and gouda with citrus/orange blossoms and a golden honey funk. Man, this is crazy good wine.

Serving Suggestions: Goat cheese with age and a firmness; Yellow goat curry with potatoes, onions, carrots and sweet spices like clove and cinnamon.

Les Betes Curieuses, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine "Chateau-Thebaud", Loire Atlantique, France, 2009

{organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

LEAN LIME & APPLE, PEPPER & MINERAL, ELEGANTLY OCEANIC

The two Jérémies (Huchet & Mourat) of Les Betes Curieuses are impassioned, young Loire vignerons. Both were born in 1977, and both have found their identities as winegrowers while chasing the majestic minerality and invigorating acidity that define their favorite wines. Together, they set out in 2005 to translate the terroir of the Atlantic Loire and the characteristics of the Melon grape into the most iconic wines possible. Channeling a vineyard of granite and sand, this cuvée is simultaneously austere and opulent with zesty citrus and granny smith gliding over a bed of electrifying mineral and bracing acidity. Magnifique!

Serving Suggestion: Raw mollusks for the win! Squid sashimi, fresh oysters, or razor clam ceviche take this tasting experience to the next level...

{organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne

ZESTY LIME, RICH MINERALISTIC CLARITY, PIERCING ACIDITY.

Significantly more opulent than Muscadet's reputation might lead us to expect, this bold offering finds its grapes harvested not only from a single plot but from a corner of that plot which was planted a century ago (as of 2014). These older vines endow the wine with even more of the Atlantic-tinged minerality for which these wines are famous. While the overall impression may be rounder, this white is still equipped with bright, enlivening acidity. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

A saline, electric finish inspires "wow" and a stunned smile spreading across the taster's face. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

If you are curious about experiencing a wine with a very minerally flavor, but haven't identified that flavor yet, here is your chance. The minerality lingers on the finish for what seems to be minutes and is clearly identifiable. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

BLACK CHERRY & POMEGRANATE, EARTHY ALMOND, UNWAVERING & ELEGANT

The Piemonte's Langhe is an area riddled with revered growing areas and a multitude of specialties, but it's best known for the Nebbiolo-based wines of its famous sub-regions of Barolo and Barbaresco. These long lived and firmly structured wines unsurprisingly command the respect and adoration of wine lovers the world over. Unfortunately, they also typically command prices of 40 dollars and up. This, however, is a graceful and imposing Nebbiolo which clocks in at under $25 and unmistakably resembles, with its aptly androgynous combination of graceful floral mystery and powerful earthy depth, the more expensive reds for which this corner of Italy is best known.

Tradition has it that Nero d'Avola was brought to Sicily by the Greeks, though it is also known as "Calabrese," suggesting it may have come from the region of Calabria. Regardless of its origins, it is the most planted variety on the island and produces deeply colored wines ranging in style from youthful and juicy to rich and complex.

Azienda Agricola COS, "Nero di Lupo", Sicilia, Italy 2014

{organic} 100% Nero d'Avola

BAKED CRANBERRY, SPICES, SMOKY LEATHER, IRON

Nero d'Avola is one of those grapes that has such interesting and dynamic flavors that it's hard not to love. It is a flavor that has become associated with Southern Italian cuisine since it is grown not only in Sicily, but throughout the lower "boot" of Italy. Often rustic, earthy and raisiny, the subtle charm can be crushed by the heat, which will turn the sugary grapes into harsh wines. At COS, the grapes are harvested before getting too ripe and cautiously crafted into pretty wine in a cold, clean cellar. The result is one of Sicily's gifts to the world. Don't miss it.

Serving Suggestions: Perfection with charcoal-grilled lamb heavily crusted with rosemary, garlic and lemon. Firm, aged pecorino cheeses with capers on the side drizzled with olive oil.

Their Orleans Aperitif Ciders are made just like vermouth, except with cider as the base rather than wine. This version is infused with a special blend of Vermont-grown herbs and flowers, resulting in a powerfully bright and concentrated potion. We like it served chilled over a few ice cubes with a splash of sparkling mineral water or paired with sparkling wine for a springy spritz. Once opened, keep in your fridge.

Serving Suggestion: The perfect aperitif to sip before an autumnal feast! Serve alongside baked brie w/ apple butter & toasted walnuts.

Pale Ale "Glutiny" [6-pack] (New Belgium)

New Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale, Fort Collins, Co

5.2% ABV

Named in honor of our founder Jeff's bike trip through Belgium, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Jeff found the Belgian approach freeing. Upon his return, Jeff created Fat Tire and Abbey Belgian Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his big gun). He and his wife, Kim traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire's appeal quickly became evident. People liked everything about it. Except the name. Fat Tire won fans is in its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness.

100% Pedro Ximenez

DRIED FIG, DATE, CAPSICUM PEPPER, SWEET

If you've never had a sweet Pedro Ximenez, then you're missing out. Sometimes they can have flavors of molasses and honey, but this one leans more towards dried fig and spicy earthy flavors. This tiny sherry producer continues to make complex, monumental wines of great age at surprisingly reasonable prices (due to the unjust decrease in demand for these wonderful wines). Started in 1832, this is a wine to enjoy before the style goes extinct and the wineries defunct.

Pepperoni, 1/2 Chub (Giacomo Santomauro)

Giacomo's Salumi -Pepperoni 1/2 Stick, Greensoboro, NC

Traditional spicy pepperoni made right here in NC.

Ground anise and cracked red pepper flakes give this handmade pepperoni its spice. This meaty Italian specialty boasts of a full flavor not masked by fat and fillers.

Care instructions for your artisan salami:

1) Once you open the plastic wrapper, never put the salami back in any type of plastic wrapper or it will mold.

2) Only peel back the casing as far as you plan on eating in one day. When you are ready to serve again, cut off a slice of the dry end that was exposed.

3) This is a coarse grind salami, so we recommend slicing it as thinly as possible with a very sharp knife. Translucently thin if possible!

4) Do not refrigerate the salami after opening it. It is cured, and will dry naturally in the open air. We recommend hanging it above your sink as it releases a small amount of natural pork grease.

5) As the salami ages, it will become more firm and flavorful in an old world style. Enjoy!!

Chateau Mancedre's Jean Trocard describes his estate's recent history simply: "It is the story of a rebirth."

Led by Cabernet Sauvignon, this bold ambassador of the gravely soils of southwestern Bordeaux brims with hallmark flavors of cassis, black plum, and an earthy/herbaceous collaboration with dark minerality. Magnifique!

Avinyó is owned by the Esteve Nadal family in the heart of Barcelona. The father planted vines 50 years ago to make sparkling wine for his friends. Today their children have taken over and continue working with free run juice to make fine quality sparkling wines and this top notch, lightly fizzy white called "Petillant." Made from Petit Grain Muscat, it has aromas of crushed red berries, honeysuckle and green apple. The palate is dry even though the wine is highly aromatic. This is really cool stuff and a must taste wine.

CASSIS & EARTHY BLUEBERRY, BLACK FIG & LEATHER, THYME

2015 Piedirosso (Fontanavecchia, Azienda Agricola)

BRIGHT CHERRY & BERRY, ROSES & DISTINCT SMOKINESS

One of the rarer single-varietal reds to come out of Campania, Piedirosso is more often used in blends where it softens the intensity of bolder varietals (typically Aglianico). This example from Fontanavecchia shows off bright, brambly berries, radiant red roses, black pepper, soft tannins, and a definitely distinct aroma of campfire ash - a direct result of the very volcanic soil. Mount Vesuvius is nearby, and looms large over the land and culture. If you've ever been confused by the term "minerality," here's a volcanic, solid stepping stone to understanding.

Serving Suggestion: Baked ziti. Grilled Italian sausage rolls w/ onions & roasted red & yellow bell peppers

Domaine de la Rochette, Pineau d'Aunis Rose, Loire Valley, France 2016

STRAWBERRY & PLUM BLOSSOM, FLINT & FENNEL POLLEN

Pineau d’Aunis, a grape with a storied history in France’s Loire Valley - particularly the northernmost regions lying above Touraine, is a cool-climate specialist. While it is increasingly well-regarded for its very distinctive, earthy reds, its best known role is that of being vinified as pretty, subtle, yet characterful rosés. It’s perfectly cast in this offering from Domaine de la Rochette, acting as an ambassador for the variety’s strengths while also simply serving up a deliciously refreshing, crisp, clean sipper.

Serving Suggestion: Baked trout w/ dill, fennel pollen, & lemon crème fraiche. Mild green papaya salad w/ toasted peanuts, fish sauce, & scallions.

Pineau des Charentes (Ragnaud, Raymond)

MADE BY RAYMOND RAGNEAU, A TOP PRODUCER OF COGNAC. EEEEEE!

A regional French aperitif, made in the départements of Charente and Charente-Maritime in western France. Whilst popular in Charente, it is less well-known in other regions of France and somewhat uncommon abroad. It is a fortified wine, made from a blend of partially-fermented wine and Cognac eau-de-vie. According to legend, during the harvest of 1589, a winemaker accidentally added grape must into a barrel that he believed was empty but in fact contained eau de vie. The mixture was duly returned to the cellars for fermentation. A few years later, the barrel was retrieved and was found to contain the drink that is now associated with the region of Charente. The blend is aged for at least 18 months, including a minimum of 8 months in oak barrels.

2016 Pinot Grigio (Visintini)

Visintini, Pinot Grigio, Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy 2016

PEARSKIN & PLUMCOT, FLORAL & MINERALLY, COPPERTONED COLORSCHEME

Pinot Gris is indeed a native to France, but, despite its impressive stature in Alsace, the grape arguably reaches its zenith in the far northeastern reaches of Italy. Friuli is one of the grape’s clear capitals, and the region’s tendencies to celebrate the variety's propensity toward richer, more expressive variations serves it well. This offering from Visintini bursts from the glass with its eye-catching copper colorations and autumnal, floral perfume. Refreshing, roughhewn Korean pear-like texture (from extended skin contact) and appropriately pinkish, plumcot-like fruit interwoven with mountain stream minerality make this a real treat for the senses.

ELEGANT APPLE, FIRM & FRESH, MINERALLY GUSTO

South Tyrol, better known to the wine world as Alto-Adige, lies within the borders of Italy at the foot of the Alps, but most of its population speak German. This influence also explains why so many of the grapes grown here are also specialties of Alsace, like Pinot Gris/Ruländer.  While Italian Pinot Grigio often brings to mind inoffensive (i.e. bland) whites for many, the variety actually lends itself to richness and structure. Castelfeder's Pinot Grigio, made by a fellow by the name of Günter, walks a perfect line between approachability and substance. Ample acidity and bright mineral come firmly attached with crisp apple and pear flavors.

Serving Suggestion: A refreshing foil to wintery treats like poached trout w/ almond shavings & buttery polenta w/ alpine cheese. Potato dumplings w/ radicchio or endives.

And much like Tikka (a Great Pyrenees), this is a soft and vivacious white - rich and full-bodied with creamy apple and pear, hints of peaches and melons, and a mouthwatering acidity rounded out by barrel fermentation. Who's a good wine? Who's a good wine?

Serving suggestion: Vegetable eggrolls w/ spicy, sweet soy dipping sauce. Wild-caught Pacific salmon w/ ginger teriyaki glaze & stir-fried vegetables w/ rice. In the backyard, throwing tennis balls for your pup.

Nackenheim certainly isn’t famous for its size, but the small municipality enjoys great esteem for its pristine wines.

BRIGHT WHITE PEACH & CRISP TROPICAL FRUIT, FLORAL, SILKEN MINERALITY

In the 25 years that Cooper Mountain Vineyards has commercially produced wine, they've carved a striking niche out of the highly specialized volcanic soil that hosts the estate's vineyards, focusing on the varietals that have helped establish Willamette Valley as a cradle of excellent wine. This gleaming white is made from biodynamically-grown grapes and boldly features elegant floral notes, bright fruit, and lovely fine-toothed minerality.

100% Pinot Nero

BLACKBERRIES, RIPE RED RASPBERRIES, VIOLETS, SOFT & SMOOTH

Wander due south from the industrial cityscape of Milan, and after a few miles Italy really starts to look like ITALY. Tucked in the gentle hills of around Pavia sits Tenuta Mazzolino, run by a French-Italian family specializing in Pinot Noir. This easy-going example is lush and approachable with soft floral notes and ripe red fruit. It fits right in with other high-quality, low-price Pinot, except with a strain of acidity that marks it as uniquely Italian. Almost Dolcetto-esque.

Serving Suggestion: A good match for light pastas with a bit of spice. Spaghetti with cracked red pepper, garlic, pecorino and herbs comes to mind.

2016 Pinot Noir (Martinolles, Domaine de)

Domaine de Martinolles, Pinot Noir, Languedoc, France 2016

100% Pinot Noir

RED PLUM, BRIGHT CHERRY, SUBTLE SPICE

The region of Limoux in France's Languedoc is something of a conundrum. Most of its neighbors cultivate the famous Mediterranean varietals like Grenache and Syrah, but Limoux often focuses on specialties normally associated with more northerly regions. Its cooling Atlantic influence has made it famous for sparkling wines and the best French Chardonnays outside of Burgundy, so it's no surprise that Limoux should provide a fabulous haven for elegant, healthy Pinot Noir. This one is balanced and food-friendly with vibrant black cherry fruit and a touch of peppery intrigue. A truly exceptional value!

Serving Suggestion: Crepes filled with smoked salmon and seasoned with dill and horseradish. Cornish hens stuffed with minced pork, mushrooms, and shallot.

Volker Schäfer has made his mark as a great German RED winemaker and owner at his Schäfer winery along with his father.

This is a scream and will eradicate any misconceptions you have about German reds. Satisfyingly rich and Burgundian in style, this Zeppelin of a Pinot revels in the variety's classic character and illustrates why Pinot is now Germany's most planted red varietal!

Hendry Ranch lies in the "transitional" climate area between cool Carneros and the sun-baked plains of the lower Napa Valley.

Brimming with vibrant acidity underscored by rich cherry and smoke, this wine is so, so fine.

This nice Pinot Noir comes on strong with plum fruit and sweet spice, but soon reveals a complex structure and lots of smoky, earthy, decadent threads.

Cecil De Loach, along with his wife Christine, was almost singlehandedly responsible for codifying what we now know as sustainable farming in California. Oh, and he accomplished this while working as a firefighter at San Francisco's Hook & Ladder Station 10. In 2003 he sold his eponymous winery but kept his vineyard in the Russian River Valley to focus on stunning small production wines. This Pinot Noir is a rich, luscious California archetype, all bold red fruit and rough-hewn spice. Uncompromisingly new-world, but rustic and rangy in its own ineffable way.

With dark red fruit standing in the foreground and plenty of foresty, earthy, Oregonian goodness afoot, the overall impression is dense, ripe, elegant, and mysterious – an exemplary specimen of both variety and Valley.

PINOT-LISCIOUS CHERRY, DRIED GOJI & FIG, SOFT VANILLA & TOBACCO

Hailing from Mount Pisgah, Illahe’s Pinots are made from Burgundian clones with origins in Pommard and the Cotes de Nuits. On one hand, this offering is distinctly Pinot Noir. On the other, it is arguably distinctive enough to sidestep some of our expectations about the variety and what Oregon’s Willamette typically coaxes from it. For one, it’s more concentrated and deeper in color – more opaque, and while its fruit retains a cherryish dominance that is distinctly that of Pinot, an exotic, dried-fruit dustiness compliments its subtle oaken richness and herbaceous spice gorgeously. Indulge!

Serving Suggestion: Roast duck w/ cranberry sauce & frites w/ duck gravy. Fried eggplant w/ raspberry vinaigrette & wild rice.

Starting with a hint of cinnamon spice from French oak and following through with black tea, pomegranate and balanced earthy fruit, the Thea's is rich and lovely from start to finish.

Serving Suggestion: Duck breast seared rare with Chinese five-spice and blood orange. Cuban-style pork with herbs and shallots.

2012 Pinot Noir "Unravelled" (Carrick)

Carrick, “Unravelled” Pinot Noir, Central Otago, New Zealand 2012

[biodynamic] 100% Pinot Noir

HIGHLY AROMATIC. CHERRIES, SPICE, TOASTY OAK.

Oh yeah! Great Pinot from Central Otago. Perched right on the Kawarau River, Carrick’s vineyard is so well tended it could be mistaken for a luxury golf green. Amazingly, the winery is as well known for their restaurant as their delicious wines. Organic, local, non-interventionist, subtle and rich; their menu and their wine are both truly classy and fine. This is a rich Pinot Noir made with a special menu in mind!

Serving Suggestion: From their menu: Filet of beef served medium rare on a potato and artichoke mash with roasted capsicum timbale and grape jus.

2013 Pinot Noir Estate "Shea Vineyard" (Shea Wine Cellars)

Shea Wine Cellars, Estate Pinot Noir "Shea Vineyard", Yamhill-Carlton district, Willamette Valley, Oregon, US 2013

BLACK CHERRY, VIOLET, MUSHROOM, RICH & LENGTHY

Shea Vineyards used to sell their entire crop to high-end Pinot producers throughout Oregon, and remains one of the most sought after growers on the West Coast. They figured they ought to keep some of the good stuff for themselves, so they started with this Estate bottling from their most serendipitous lots. This is a fine example of how Oregon Pinot Noir can gracefully walk the line between Burgundian and New World style wine, with earthy notes and hearty acidity backing up ripe, lip-smacking dark fruit.

Serving Suggestions: Pork loin with red onion compote and a side of warm Bibb salad with Oregon smoky blue cheese and hazelnuts.

2011 Pinot Noir Estate - Sta. Rita Hills (Cargasacchi)

Cargasacchi, Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills, California 2011

100% Pinot Noir

STEWED CHERRY, SMOKE, OPULENT & TEXTURED

The only thing longer and more layered than this wine is the growing season of the Santa Rita Hills. At morning, marine fog colors the vineyard in a swath of gray before it sweats off in the summer's sun. Taking its cue, a cooling wind picks up for several hours before allowing the fog to return in the evening. This daily routine makes for a long growing season and well-developed grapes. Opulent and profoundly textured, this Pinot weighs ripe red fruits against a spicy, smokey structure that leads into a long and lasting finish.

Serving Suggestion: Kale w/ tempeh & a rich, roasted, red pepper sauce. Short ribs w/ a smoked porter beer mop! Or, for the audacious, roasted (brandied) cherries over vanilla ice-cream.

CRISP, DRY & LIGHTLY SPARKLING. CUSTOMER FAVORITE!

Werner and Angela first produced this rosé for their wedding. The marriage is still going strong and the wine is regularly produced in small quantities. Their farm is a true biodynamic universe. They grow vegetable crops, raise cows and pigs, make wine, produce mico-brew beer and heirloom apple cider - all biodynamically. This rosé was one of the most memorable wines on our trip. Its lush fruit, slight effervescence and full mouth-feel is the perfect way to start a meal or afternoon.

Serving Suggestion: A perfect aperitif wine on its own or with firm cheese and crackers. Also weighty enough for leafy salads topped with grilled chicken, tuna or salmon.

Gleaming ruby in the glass and with a firm yet friendly freshness of red fruit, this delight offers us rare insight into the ancient Rhone variety, Piquepoul Noir.

This pear cider is made principally with the variety Plant de Blanc, and its excellent acidity frame the pear and spice flavors. Poiré Domfront is made in the same style as low alcohol apple based ciders of Normandy, with 4-5% alcohol and slightly sparkling; it differs from its apple-based counterpart with a slightly brighter, golden color and (of course) its recognizably pear flavor…

Serving suggestion: A truly delicious, slightly off-dry drink that works excellently as a palate cleanser before a meal or just a delicious drink on its own.

{organic} 100% Chardonnay

FIRM PEAR & PINEAPPLE, SLATEY MINERAL, RICH YET RACY

Few would dispute Pouilly-Fuissé’s status as southern Burgundy’s brightest point for exceptional Chardonnay, and the grape, itself, is believed to have its origins not far from here (where a certain Macconais village shares its name). This “Courtelong” cuvée represents a parcel of Noly’s vines planted over forty years ago, and the terroir’s distinctive limestone and slate-like nuances are married perfectly to key lime, pear, and tropical fruit, resulting in an elegantly powerful ambassador for both Chardonnay and the Burgundian south.

This classic French Sauvignon Blanc shows the minerality of the Loire coupled with modern winemaking techniques to add fresh flavors, citrus fruit and a racy, long finish. Lightly musky with a full-bodied intensity that is penetrating and long lasting.

Serving Suggestion: PF is fish wine to most, so you are safe there, but venture off to spicy Asian foods like the Thai food next door. Just the thing to quiet hot spices and blend with them in harmony.

She’s fallen in love with the local Primitivo grape and with her vineyards, consisting of low-yeilding bush vines located less than two miles from the Ionian Sea. Balanced yet intensely concentrated with dried berryish fruit and peppery spice. Classic!

The rationale was probably more endearing, but it is a timely personification of the poor, slate/quartz soils of Priorat that fetch the region its fame and fortune. After Xavi's vines have sifted through these soils, the juice then wises up for 8 months in new French oak barrels.

FLOATY VIOLET, MULBERRY COMPOTE, BLACK OLIVE & SPICE

The Latin “Imprimatur” translates to “let it be released”: essentially an endorsement, except with some added gravitas. This red blend serves as the “imprimatur” declaration of the winemakers' reverence for and confidence in their land and vines. Petite Sirah adds an extra layer of powerful concentration to the sizable Shiraz, but subtlety and dreamy floral notes remain strong. This has universal appeal, especially for hardcore Aussie fans who may have overdosed on tongue-bruising Barossa Shiraz.

100% Garganega

CARAMEL, SPICE, DRIED FRUIT AND NUTS

Friends, Romans, and countrymen all agree, this is the product of good ears ("recie" in the local dialect) - the top-most, most sun-ripened grapes on the bunch, which are then dried in the sun until their juice is concentrated and powerful; on such a full sea we are now afloat, redolent of caramel, brown sugar, and spice, with golden raisins, dried orange peel & a touch of ginger. Rich sweetness gives way to pleasant, palate-cleansing acidity. The inevitable end to a meal is dessert, and this is a dessert wine fit for the gods. 

Serving Suggestion: Simple, not-very-sweet cookies like shortbread or biscotti, dunked into the wine. Use as part of a zabaglione - a light whipped custard - and pour over fresh berries. By itself, sipped slowly, sitting outside under the faultless stars.

From our adventurous and fiercely naturalistic friends at the Meinklang farm of Austria’s Burgenland comes this curious and curringly pétillant red. It's dry, intense, and slightly atypical yet no less apt as an ambassador for the very hip and hysteria-inducing Pét-Nat style, which represents a robust resurgence of interest in the earliest sparkling wines typically known as Méthode Ancestrale. The Gamaret grape is an offspring of Gamay, native to Switzerland, and shouldn’t be confused with atom-ionizing radiation occurring at surpluses of 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 Hz or enormous turtle-kaiju which are capable of breathing fire. Brilliant lilac coloration on the head!

2010 Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso (Albano, Guerra)

Guerra Albano, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Italy 2010

100% Refosco

DARK BERRIES, CHOCOLATE & SPICE, BALANCED & RICH

Legend has it that Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso (Refosco with red stems) has been grown since the time of Pliny the Elder, who highly praised it (or something similar to it) 2,000 years ago! We praise this modern take on the grape and its deep, dark purple color, rich black & blue berries, and accents of cocoa, vanilla, and spice. Grippy tannins and a long, balanced finish round out this stunner. The Albano family have been making wine for generations but have only been bottling commercially for twenty-five years. Here's to another two thousand!

Serving suggestion: Lasagna w/ ricotta cheese & wild mushrooms. Rosemary chicken thighs topped w/ besciamella, a sprinkling of nutmeg, & poppy seeds. Crispy fried Frico (wafers of grated cheese mixed with flour) & roasted beets.

Reggiano Lambrusco Rosso "Montelocco" (Venturini Baldini)

Venturini Baldini, Reggiano Lambrusco Rosso "Montelocco", Emilia Romagna, Italy NV

Grapes: Grasparossa, Sorbara, Marani, Montericco, Maestri, Malbo Gentile

CRISP BLACK GRAPES & JUICY PURPLE FRUIT, ZESTY ACIDITY, MOUTH-MASSAGING EFFERVESCENCE

This off-dry field blend of different Lambrusco grapes represents a renaissance of sorts for the fizzy red wines of Emilia-Romagna. Lambrusco has been long maligned by factory production, but it takes only a few honest growers (and a bit of common sense) to realize that delightfully refreshing reds that sparkle like precious jewels should be cherished! Like a tantalizing cluster of cool grapes dangling above your head, this wine is equally at home as a diverse companion for food or a charming cocktail all its own.

Serving Suggestion: Awesome with a wide range of Italian charcuterie! Fruit salads and fruit-based deserts that are not overly sweet love to cuddle up with this wine.

2014 Regnie "Selection Vieilles Vignes" (Colette, Domaine de)

Domaine de Colette, Regnie "Selection Vieilles Vignes", Beaujolais, France 2014

{organic} 100% Gamay (old vines)

FIRM BLACK CHERRY & LIP-SMACKING CRANBERRY, FLINTY ELEGANCE

Fresh and juicy, yet broad-shouldered and with a deliciously serious (and seriously delicious) structure, this Régnié from Jacky and Evelyne Gauthier (presumably no relation to the singer) embodies the contradiction between guzzlable lightness and admirable complexity shared by many of the best wines from Beaujolais. Régnié is often thought of as a kind of understudy to its more famous neighbor, Morgon - sharing similar characteristics but clocking in at consistently lower prices. Well, this offering from Domaine Colette could quite possibly steal the show...

Serving Suggestion: Smoked rabbit loin in a dried cherry reduction with chopped saucisson. Tartin of Morels with pearl onion and Comté.

SMOOTH & DELICIOUS, BERRIES, LAVENDER & PEPPER

Volker Schäfer follows in the footsteps of his father Karl-Ludwig, who is a red wine enthusiast in a region much better known for its white wine. This was no deterrent, and today they are the leading red wine specialist in the Rheinhessen. This cuvee is their friendly, easy-drinking blend in a convenient one liter bottle, which is smart, because you'll reach the end of the bottle quite quickly!

Serving Suggestion: Beef tartar, which we have with this on every visit. It's also great with pizza, burgers, meatloaf, and evey roasted chicken.

PURPLEY DELICIOUSNESS! RICH WITH TANGY RASPBERRY & BLUEBERRY

We are so happy to have this back in house! In 2012, we blew through this red from sisters Hélène & Catherine Thibon, the dynamic duo guiding this limited production. Although the estate became certified biodynamic in 2005, Mas de Libian has been making organic wine since its start in 1670. The "Vin de Pétanque" is highly quaffable during the spring and summer months when "pétanque" season, the southern French equivalent of boccé, is in full swing! A Wine Authorities exclusive!

2011 Ribeira Sacra "Viña Caneiro" (D. Ventura)

D.Ventura, Ribeira Sacra "Viña Caneiro", Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Spain, 2011

{organic} 100% Mencia

FIRM PLUM & RIPE CASSIS, DARK PEPPERY MINERAL

Mencia is not only the signature red grape of Galicia, but it can be counted among northwestern Iberia's most iconic varietals. Previously (and erroneously) rumored to be a descendent of Cabernet Franc, it's origins today remain a mystery. This example from Ribera Sacra, has its origins in 80 year old vines, laying down layers of deep, purply fruit and a dark minerality reminiscent of smoky graphite for an overall impression that is simultaneously authoritative and supple.

Serving Suggestion: Tender smoked pork loin w/ garlic, paprika & boiled potatoes. Empanadas w/ mushrooms, shallots, & tomato.

BRIGHT & INTENSE, PEAR, CITRUS, HERBS

A shining Galician gem, this complex white blend is expressive of its birthplace: steep slopes, sunny days, cool nights. The rich texture has a pleasant oiliness that reminds us of leesy, old-vine Muscadet, and this works just as well as an all-purpose seafood wine.

Serving Suggestions: Boquerones and grilled octopus, lightly fried whole-sardines, a bevy of clams, a bushel of oysters, an ocean of seafood...

100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)

BLACK RASPBERRY & BING CHERRY, FIRM, GENTLE WOODSY SPICE

With less than two decades under its belt, David Cuéllar's Valdrinal estate can be described as a very young winery, and yet its wines seem the culmination of a wisdom and a passion which are timeless and respectful of tradition. Comprised of a patchwork of non-contiguous vineyards scattered about the heart of Ribera del Duero, the vines responsible for this firm, impeccably balanced Tempranillo (locally called Tinta Fina) average thirty years of age. Aged for six months in French and American oak and yet unmistakably starring dark, berryish fruit and elegantly earthy notes, this is a red that's both deliciously assertive and admirably understated.

Serving Suggestion:  Beef empanadas w/ green peas, raisins, & tender, savory carrots. Grilled onion & eggplant w/ cumin/cinnamon mole & cilantro in toasted corn tortillas.

FLESHY CHERRY & RED RASPBERRY, SPICY GUARANA, DAY-GLO ROSADO!

The hot, dry, daytime conditions in the high elevation vineyards of Ribera del Duero practically guarantee stellar ripeness and generosity of fruit, while the plateau's plummeting night temperatures preserve excellent acidity.

Emerging from a small village in the western part of Ribera del Duero, Bodegas Arrocal is a relative newcomer, not producing its first wine until 2001. The result of exclusively hand-harvesting, this deliciously concentrated red is thick with plummy black fruit, spice and and a generously toasted creaminess from 6 luxurious months in French and American oak barriques. Lush and full-bodied, redolent of sappy mulberry and rich dark chocolate, this intense and elegant wine remains bright and fresh with racy tannic energy and a solid frame.

Alsatian Riesling not only occupies an especially lofty place in the hearts of seasoned enthusiasts of both the variety and the region, but it often represents a kind of Riesling-er-rific gateway drug or electrifyingly zesty tidal pool whose distinctive aromas and typically distinctive lack of residual sugar converts many Riesling skeptics into true believers. This example from Charles Baur delivers that classic clarity, intensity of tangy fruit, and ethereal perfume combining white flowers and flint.

2014 Riesling (Xabregas)

Xabregas Estate, Western Australia 2014

100% Riesling

CLEAN AND DRY, LIMEY FRESH, BRIGHT AND QUENCHING

Australian Riesling is one of the under-the-radar delicacies of the wine world. Typically bone-dry, they are elegant, understated whites from a country known for heavy, jammy reds. Part of why we don't see enough of these stateside is that, like great dry German Riesling, most of the best stuff is happily guzzled before it can leave the country.  Luckily for us this great bottle made all the way here from the southernmost tip of Western Australia. With fresh lemon oil and orange zest on the nose and lush, medium bodied richness on the palate, it's so balanced in acidity that it feels almost weightless.  Complex but quaffable.

Serving Suggestion: A holiday ham feast w/ all your favorite sides.  Bahn Mi w/ ginger marinated tofu & plenty of cilantro.

Among our longest-standing favorite producers of Germany, Dr. Karl Heyden and his family started making wines in 1999. After Karl's passing in 2003, his son Frank took the reins, crafting wines of unsurpassed style and elegance. This lovely wine combines Riesling’s citrus and tropicality with suggestions of cherry blossom, sandalwood, and a slight hint of petrol. On the palate, pineapple, stone fruit, tangerine marmalade, old-fashioned rock candy, and white tea shine through richly and with balance – a glass of liquid gold. 

Serving Suggestion: Green curry w/ North Carolina shrimp, rice noodles, a fresh Vietnamese mint sprig & red chile fish sauce for
