The 2019 Abbonna Dolcetto Dogliani Sori di But is a must try. Drawn off the highest vineyard in Dogliani where Dolcetto is king. Beautifully dark violet in color, with wonderful aromas of black cherry, tea leaves and sage, fermented in steel vats to allow these ‘grand cru’ ancient plantings to shine through unencumbered. This is must try – get it before these vineyards are gone forever.

This offer is really an easy one. 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, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.

“Beautifully done, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has an incredible sense of purity and finesse while packing plenty of classic California fruit. Vivid ruby-hued with a kaleidoscopic array of framboise, spring flowers, charcoal, toasted spices, and damp earth, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, incredible purity of fruit, integrated acidity, and a great finish. This quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is already drinking brilliantly yet will keep for at least 7-8 years.”
Despite Prosecco being the quintessential apertivo of Italy – this is no ordinary Prosecco. Bele Casel is hands down the best of the best. Fruity aromas, bright acidity and effervescence make this the perfect way to start an evening. It’s light, fun and extremely food friendly.
The 2019 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is a total knock-out. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white wine which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever.
What separates this Valpolicella from its peers is the grapes used were grown for this wine specifically. This isn’t Amarone seconds, it’s a precisely crafted and seductive rendition of the Corvina grape that will appeal to Red Burgundy lovers. Highly versatile and elegant, Ca La Bionda’s Valpolicella mesmerizes with red and blackberries, anise and Asian spices with serious depth.
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!
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.
If you haven’t yet had any of the wines from Castello di Volpaia, now is the perfect time to change that. This one, their most affordable in the crowd, is their bid for Nicholas the ultimate Super Tuscan Bargain of the Year. A predominantly Sangiovese blend that also features Cabernet, the “Citto” is made in 100% stainless steal vats to properly showcase the intense and vibrant youthful fruit. The perfect compliment to pizza, this is one to drink now while it’s fresh, silky and oh so juicy.

Drawn from some the finest parcels on the storied hill of Montosoli, James Suckling says of the tiny Cerbaia estate’s newest release: “Elena Pellagrini’s 2015 Brunello is fragrant, redolent of purple flowers, sage and wild berries. The wine is dark and powerfully concentrated yet finishes fresh and kind stony, making it both fantastic at the table now and a great candidate for long aging”
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!).
Obviously, I can’t tell you all the details of the vineyard source but I can let you in on a few of the details. Crafted using a fruit from 1000-1500 ft in elevation, Chad’s 2019 is cool climate Pinot at its best– especially given the price tag. While similar wines (very similar wines) will fetch a $45 price tag, you can snag it today for half off that price on bottle one.
