We want to make this one easy. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec that you can get at a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses.

“A very beautiful and thoughtful Testamatta with aromas of earth, terra cotta, black tea, and lavender. Full-bodied, very layered and extremely polished with superb, soft tannins. Racy and very long. Muscular and formed but very, very balanced. Gorgeous richness and depth. Shows balance and wonder.” – James Suckling

The perfect wine to liven any rainy day. Made from 100% Tinta de Toro, a Tempranillo clone exclusively found in the phylloxera resistant Toro region on the Duero River in Spain. Spanish wine pioneer Jorge Ordonez discovered these now 120 year old gnarled trunks burrow deep in the porous soil that has managed to find just enough water each vintage to continue to produce some of the most elegant, intense explosions of flavor, in 2017, a 93-point rendition of one of Jorge Ordonez’s finest selecitions.
The 2018 Carl Roy Stag’s Leap District is a wine that was never supposed to be poured anywhere but the finest steakhouses from SF to NYC. But that all changed in March. Even so, when I got the call asking if I would like this Stag’s Leap Cuvée from Carl Roy, I thought it was a mistake. From the most storied AVA of Napa and somehow just $35/btl? Hurry because this one won’t last!

Half bottles! There are not many more accolades for Bodega Catena Zapata to receive. On April 1st, they were named by Drinks International the #1 most admired wine brand in the world. Their single-vineyard Malbec has been awarded 100 points in back to back vintages from two separate critics and they are also of course the winery that put Argentinian wine on the map to begin with. Their 2017 Estate Malbec is an absolutely dynamite bottle of zipped up, fresh and . Half bottle of wine that is— perfect for stocking up!
Chad’s latest release is the 2018 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine. This Cabernet-based blend, a rich, teeth-staining wine, delivers way more power, fruit and finish than any other $25 Napa Valley red that I have tasted all year. It features aromas and flavors of black currant, plum, mocha and cigar box, leading to a packed middle core of black fruit. The ’18 Chad Prop Red displays the concentration and length generally found in bottles twice its price (that’s because what’s in the bottle IS twice the price!).

It’s easy to find quality in a St. Emilion vintage like 2015 but next to impossible to combine with insane value. But thanks to the crisis – and our direct import partners – that’s exactly what we have today with the 2015 Folie de Chauvin. This is an absolutely gorgeous and beautifully refined wine that seamlessly pairs power with elegance. It’s signature Right Bank with freshness that bursts from the bottle along with seductive aromas of black fruits.

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now. –Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.

It’s nearly impossible to find truly exceptional Bordeaux for under $20. This may be our chance in a lifetime to find a few exceptions to the rule. The 2016 from Chateau le Doyenne and winemaking consultant guru Michel Rolland offers incredible value. Multiple critics have chimed in on this under-the-radar gem, giving it (at last count) FOUR 90+ scores (Parker, Suckling, Enthusiast, & Vinous)

The 2016 Chateau Martinat is combines plush New World concentration with classic Old World Backbone. Deep purple in color, packed with ultra-ripe black fruit concentration yet velour-like texturally, finishing with a ripe tannin finish that argues for another 6-10 years of cellar slumber.
