The 2017 Renegade Red is a huge red wine blend that pushes 15% alc. You never taste it though, it’s well hidden within its rich, juicy texture accented by flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cedar and cocoa. It finishes long with a hint of spice — a guaranteed crowd pleaser for sure. So much so Wine Enthusiast gave it 92 points – one of the highest ratings of the year for a wine of this type.

“This starts out with a more savory, earthy and spicy expression and has a gently meaty edge to the nose with a vibrant, exotic feel. Violets and wild herbs abound with forest wood and sous bois – very complex already. The palate has a very tautly composed feel with acidity really adding spark to dense, powerful tannins. Red and dark cherries abound and there’s a floral and mineral thread of flavor. Salty too, like samphire and nasturtium. Striking wine.” – James Suckling

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.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.

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!

The 2005 Yquem starts out incredibly welcoming with seductive aromas. The mouthfeel offers perfect balance with fresh acidity and elegance complimenting the wine’s power and giving it tremendous grace. It’s crazy good right now, but I think I will defer to Lisa Perotti-Brown, who said in her 97-pt review of this classic wine just last year, “This decadent flavor bomb still needs a good five to seven years in bottle before it is set to go off, but oh what a spectacle it will give then!” From what it’s already showing, this can be one special bottle for Sauternes collectors.

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.

The 2010 vintage in Bordeaux was one of the best by far of the last three decades. Excellence can be found across the board, but usually it will run you in the thousands. Along with 2009, the 2010 disappeared in record time snatched up all over the world by collectors and Bordeaux enthusiasts. Chateau Leoville Barton’s 2010 is every bit as good as every other estate’s in the vintage, with their own wine deemed perfect by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and given the “unicorn” 100-pt score. Robert Parker, Jr. said of this wine, “The beautiful purity, symmetry, and huge finish of nearly a minute make this one of the all-time great classics from Leoville Barton.”

” The 2016 Château Poesia is more open and showy compared to the Barde Haut, offering fabulous limestone-like character in its kirsch and currant fruits and notes of dried herbs, white truffle, and dried flowers. Possessing medium to full body, ripe, present tannins, terrific concentration, and a great finish, it’s another incredibly classy Saint Emilion from the Garcin-Lévêque family.”

“Easily one of the most impressive of the lineup, just bursting with fruit and power – tight firm tannins giving clear support and backbone. This is a fairly Left Bank feel for a St Emilion, perhaps from its dash of Cabernet Sauvignon, and it successfully delivers a recognisable Chauvin signature. A beautiful vibrant violet rim suggests this is going to age well.” -Decanter

Crafting wine off an ancient vineyard in Sauternes, Bernard relies on an intimate relationship with the Bordeaux terroir he knows so well and knowing the precise time to pick each vintage. In the exceptional 2018 vintage, Oliver Bernard’s ‘Lune d’Argent’ is a knockout.

The 2019 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec offers a deep, rich yet pure and refined, intensely aromatic, darker-toned nose with aromas of fully ripe stone and tropical fruit intertwined with earthy, chalky and yeasty notes that make up for further finesse and complexity. Full-bodied, round and fruity on the palate, this is a deep, intense, juicy, silky-textured yet tight, chalky, very complex, sustainably structured and persistently salty-mineral Chenin from old vines that give extra concentration as well as a spectacularly expressive character. This is a great, age-worthy Vouvray with fine tannins and lingering salty tension and finesse. What a finish! The 2019 needs a while to gain finesse and even more complexity. The wine served from the bottle that I tasted nine days before was incredibly amazing! The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados!
