Best 2017-2024.” –International Wine Report, 90 points. New item.

2016 Bila-Haut by Michel Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Villages

"An inky colored effort, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut offers a beautiful freshness and purity, as well as fabulous notes of jammy blackberries, violets, pepper and hints of leather.

2016 "Rive Droite, Rive Gauche" Rouge Blend Côtes du Rhône $14.99/$10.29/$9.26

"Rive Droite, Rive Gauche" means "right bank, left bank," and reflects that the fruit for this plush rouge comes from vineyards on both sides of the mighty Rhône. 2016 was an exceptional vintage in the Rhône Valley. The wine floats across the palate on ripe, savory notes of blueberry, currant and blackberry. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre and Cinsault.

2015 Luzon Verde Jumilla Spain $12.99/$9.39/$8.45

"Dark berries and cherry pit on the nose, lifted by a spicy pepper nuance. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering plump blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Dusty tannins sneak in slowly on the finish, adding closing shape and grip." – Vinous, 89 points. New vintage.

2016 Bodegas Gormaz ‘Catania’ Ribera del Duero Spain $12.99/$9.39/$8.45

Behold a rare example of an affordable Ribera del Duero. A former cooperative, Bodegas Gormaz controls the majority of vines in Ribera del Duero’s Scoria province. Despite its miniscule price, grapes are laboriously hand-picked. True to the Duero, this is a full-bodied red that loves meat, especially hearty lamb dishes. New item.

“A juicy, friendly style, with a mix of cassis and cherry preserves backed by a red licorice echo through the light toasty finish. Drink now through 2019.”
