Deal Of The Month

2014 NOTRE DAME DE PALLIERES RASTEAU

Formerly a Côtes du Rhône-Villages, Rasteau became an appellation in 2009. The domaine has 13 hectare of old vines on plots of clay soils, covered with heat retaining stones—galets. The 2014 Notre Dames de Pallières Rasteau is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault, aged in French oak barrels of 3 to 5 years. It shows a purple color, with an heady aroma of blackberry, white pepper, and cocoa. On the palate, ripe fruit and spicy flavors abound. The wine has a long finish with lasting tannins.

The Weekly Tasting

SAINT COSME - RHONE

The Saint Cosme estate lies in the center of Gigondas, with 62 acres of vines growing in the shade of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain. Estate grown wines are labeled ‘Château de Saint Cosme’. When winemaker Louis Barruol buys grapes from contracted growers, he labels the wines simply as ‘Saint Cosme.’ We have a selection of five new wines, each of which is a prime example of the terroir of their site. Come in and taste these wines on Saturday, July 21st at both shops.

New Arrivals

2015 MCCARTHY AND SCHIERING RED

We are pleased to offer the 2015 McCarthy & Schiering Red, a wine that we developed with Morgan Lee of Two Vintners.
It is a blend of 55% Grenache from Olsen Vineyard(blocks 19 and 23), with 27% Mouvèdre from Kiona Vineyard, and 18% Cinsault from Olsen Vineyard. We built this wine to resemble a fine Côtes-du-Rhône. It has a high note of sweet red fruit from the Grenache, a lower note of woodsy, earthiness from Mouvèdre, and a note of acidity and graphite from the Cinsault. This is a great wine for summer barbecues where meat is the theme.

SUPER SOAVES

Fittà is the name of the ancient village where Suavia is located. The 2015 Suavia ‘Massifitti is made from 100% Trebbiano di Soave. It is elevated in stainless steel tanks, and then spends six months aging. The 2016 Suavia ‘Monte Carbonare’ is named for the hill where the vineyard is situated, because the volcanic soils are black as coal. Made from 100% Garganega, it is a pure expression of this volcanic terroir.
