Catena DV 2017 “Tinto Historico” Red, Mendoza, Argentina (Andres)
Domingo Vicente Catena founded Catena in 1908. His original red table wine, similar to this blend, graced the tables of many of elegant Buenos Aires cafes in the 1930s. This replica blend of 72% Malbec, 21% Bonarda and 7% Petit Verdot features brooding blackberry fruit notes with touches of fresh floral aromatics and a smooth, rich, spicy finish. Enjoy with grilled meats. Rated 94pts James Suckling!

Chateau Cabrières 2017 Cotes du Rhone VV, France (Jen & Jerry)
Just on the edge of Chateauneuf-du-Pape sits the village of Orange, where Chateau Cabrières is located. Cabrières, from the Latin word “Capraria”, translates to “where goats roam”, and grapes have been grown here since the 1300s! In fact, a stone bread oven door was found on the property dating back to the 14th or 15th centuries. This red, comprised of equal parts Syrah and Grenache grown in clay/limestone soil, exudes bright strawberry and raspberry fruit notes with soft tannins and delightful spice notes. Fresh and energetic, this is the perfect red to enjoy slightly chilled on the porch with some cheese and charcuterie, or with pizza grilled on a pizza stone.

La Motte 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, Franschhoek Valley, South Africa (Aron)
La Motte was established by French Huguenot Pierre Joubert, named after a small village in Provence. We were shown this fresh and lively Sauvignon Blanc recently and loved the vibrant melon, gooseberry and lime notes. The acidity is balanced (not overwhelming) and the palate silky soft and very dry. Pair with salads topped with goat cheese, or seafood dressed with citrus-based dressing. This wine recently won Gold at Mundus Vini, an International Wine Competition.

Tiza 2019 Tempranillo, La Mancha, Spain (Tim)
This delicious and super affordable Tempranillo is from a cooperative of growers located in La Mancha, Spain. The word “Tiza” translates to “chalk”, referring to the one-foot deep topsoil of chalky red-clay soil in the vineyard. Showing ripe black cherry and blueberry fruit notes with background tones of dark cocoa, this velvety smooth, easy drinking Tempranillo will be perfect with charcuterie or a variety of appetizers, served tapas-style!

Mylia Sangria, Spain (Aron)
If you love Sangria, pour this bottle into a pitcher layered with your favorite chopped fruit. Made from Spanish Garnacha and Tempranillo and complimented with a bright core of orange Valencia fruit, this wine shows pretty cherry, peach, citrus and spice notes. With a modest alcohol content hovering just over 7% and not too sweet, this won’t overwhelm on hot summer afternoons!

Chateau La Graula 2016 Bordeaux Superieur, France (Pat)
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this simple Bordeaux is satisfying with notes of blackberry, cassis, and dark cherry notes with touches of subtle vanilla from barrel aging. Gentle but present tannins make this wine better to drink with food, such as grilled cheeseburgers or lamb chops.

Lydian 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington (Tim)
Avennia, long one of our favorite Washington State wineries, is the amazing team behind this relatively affordable Cabernet (our favorite Avennia Red “Sestina” retails at $69.99). Full-bodied and rich, with black cherry, currant, dark chocolate and fresh herb notes, this is a taste of the Avennia winemaking skills without the accompanying high price! Enjoy with grilled ribeye steaks or portabello mushrooms, or some beautiful aged hard cheeses!

Broc Cellars 2020 Love Rosè, North Coast, California (Pat)
This dry yet expressive Rosè was crafted from 85% Valdiguie (formerly known as Napa Gamay), 14% Zinfandel and 1% Trousseau, all from the North Coast of Calfornia. Only native yeasts are used in the fermentation process, and the wine is bottled unfiltered, which means, there might be some sediment in the bottom of the bottle and this is normal! Showing ripe juicy strawberry notes and savory finish awash with acidity and just a touch of spice from the Zinfandel, this Rosè is a delightful wine to pair with grilled vegetables, crab cakes, or pasta primavera!

Bott-Geyl 2018 Points Cardinaux “Mètiss”, Alsace France 2018 (Andrew)
While searching for some new additions to our Alsatian section, we stumbled across this unusual blend of “Pinot” grapes, with 40% Pinot Blanc, 40% Pinot Auxerrois, 10% Pinot Gris, and 10% Pinot Noir (vinified white). Bursting with citrus and peach flavors with refreshing acidity and mineral tones, this off-dry wine is the perfect complement to sushi, sashimi or spicy Latin food. BIODYNAMIC

Birgit Eichinger 2019 Gruner Veltliner, Kamptal, Austria (Andrew)
Birgit Eichinger and her husband Christian founded this winery in 1992 with 3.5 hectares of vineyards from her family. The Gruner Veltliner grapes for this wine come from a south-facing slope overlooking the picturesque Strasser Valley. This hillside enjoys sunny days and cool nights, creating aromatic complexity and layers of flavor in the wine. Expect citrus, grapefruit, melon and white pepper notes with plenty of acidity in this white wine that will pair well with grilled pork tenderloin or grilled halibut with pickled vegetables.

Domaine Collotte 2018 Marsannay Cuvèe Vieilles Vignes, France (Andres)
This elegant Pinot Noir from the Cote de Nuits of Burgundy features notes of cherry, black currant, graphite and gentle spice flavors. Fermentation and aging takes place in tanks making for a fresh and pure expression of the grape, lively on the palate. Robert Parker dubbed Philippe Collotte as “one of the new stars of Marsannay” and after enjoying this wine with seared tuna or grilled chicken or mushrooms, we think you’ll agree!
