• Opaque violet color. Ripe dark berry, cola and floral aromas, with a strong accent of American oak. Fat, sweet and palate-staining, offering intense red and dark berry preserve flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Powerful yet comes off as quite graceful. Finishes very long and sweet, with supple tannins and persistent spiciness

  • This wine, from a largely sparkling wine region, is a blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Malbec, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The wine shows ripe black plum fruit accented by notes of sweet tobacco and freshly ground coffee.

  • " Pleasantly sweet, Adesso’s berry aromas and flavors are impossible to resist. Low in alcohol, Adesso is a fun and easy to drink red wine for those who prefer their wines “off dry”. Nobody knows where the name "Cagnina" (ca-nee-na) comes from but it is known that the wine has been made only in the Romagna region, just south of Venice since the 13th century, and that it was even called Cagnina in those days.

    Wine Spectator - "Bright, tangy acidity and firm tannins provide solid structure to the dried raspberry, red currant and black tea flavors. Layers of new leather and tobacco leaf echo through the mouthwatering finish of sweet spice and mineral. "

  • This organically grown Pinot Noir has a bright ruby, medium concentration color and shows a beautiful, perfumed nose with spice details. It is medium-full in body with red fruit, spice, and mineral tones on the palate. The texture is silky and finishes crisp and lean. This should age very nicely.

  • Winemaker's Notes

    This red Fixin has a very attractive ruby red color. Delicate and discreet, the nose has subtle notes of woodland undergrowth. Fleshy and robust, this crisp and oaky wine has harmonious balance. The finish is persistent with light spicy notes.

  • This is a very refreshing Pinot Gris from the Oregon outpost of acclaimed Napa producer, Revana. The wine is medium bodied and shows flavors/aromas of fresh stone fruit with hints of white flowers, honey, and wet stones. It is creamy in texture with the complexity and weight coming from a small portion being aged in oak and on its lees.

  • Terry Thiese (importer) writes: "The clearest imaginable look into pure Mosel. Vivid, toe-curling clarity of fruit and terroir make this my most beloved Mosel agency. These are just some of the keenest, spiciest, most helplessly beautiful wines you can ever drink. The iciest blade of electric, splashing acidity supports a fruit so clear, so sharply rendered that the entire experience is so vivid..."       

  • The Palazzo delle Torre is a blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, and 5% Sangiovese. The wine is ripe and juicy with dried red berry character, green coffee bean, and cocoa notes. The fresh acidity really livens up the wine making this a very enjoyable wine to drink.

  • This is a blend of 80% Sangiovese with the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The wine has aromas and flavors of ripe berries, forest floor, and a slight note of camphor. The wine is medium bodied with good acidity and structure. This presents itself as a very versatile food wine that is also fruity enough to drink on its own. No oak was used here.

  • From the luxury goods producer, Fendi, comes this delightful blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, and Pinot Noir. Notes of crushed red berries, vanilla, oak, earth, and musk mark this light bodied red.

  • This is a great village wine for those who love “under the radar” value Burgundies. The wine shows a very pretty nose of spiced red berries accented by earthy notes of fallen leaves, iron, and a touch of funk. It is nicely concentrated and smooth on the palate with firm tannins on the finish. Only 125 cases produced.

  • The Wine Advocate - "The estate’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon wraps around the palate with lovely depth in its expressive, resonant fruit, showing no hard edges and excellent balance. Espresso, mocha, plums, cloves and freshly cut flowers are all layered into the vibrant, delineated finish.  Antica did not bottle their flagship Townsend Cabernet, opting instead to use that fruit to strengthen their regular bottling.”

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2007 Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Riserva (Sangiovese) comes across as quite plush and deep. It shows lovely mid-palate pliancy in its floral red fruit along with soft, silky tannins that frame the finish. Tar, licorice and smoke are nicely layered into the finish. The Badia a Passignano is 100% Sangiovese. This vineyard ripened on the late side in 2007, giving the wine much of its textural finesse."

    Wine Enthusiast - "Here's a "wow" wine on every level, with incredible intensity and supple softness that builds momentum over many long minutes. A sweet cherry note at the core is surrounded by lush layers of tobacco, dark chocolate and spice, which promise to evolve gracefully over years to come. The 2008 Guado al Tasso is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
