2016 Sandrone Barbera d’Alba

Wow! We may have never experienced a Barbera d’Alba of this complexity. It sings with bright cherry and blackberry fruit. Aged in 500 liter French oak barrels for nine months, the wine has a polish and silkiness that few Barbera wines can match. The grapes are from vineyards in the villages of Monforte d’Alba, Cascina Pe Mol Novello, Ravera, and Rocche di San Nicola. At its price, this wine is a great introduction to the wines of Luciano Sandrone.

2017 Kevin White Blue Label

A delicious blend of 57% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and 19% Mourvèdre, the 2017 Kevin White Red ‘Blue Label’ is designed to resemble a Côtes du Rhône with its plum and blueberry aromas. This is a great value.

2017 Lu+Oly Cabernet

Take a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, soften it with Merlot, and give it some pencil lead with a dash of Malbec…presto you have Mark Ryan’s Lu+Oly Cabernet Sauvignon. Simply one of the steals in Washington State

Staff Picks

Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Visiting the rather plain winery located in the village of Milly-Lamartine is romantic. Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon was founded in 1999 by Dominique Lafon, of the famous Meursault estate Comte Lafon. The facility is functional and well-organized, if a bit small for the volume they make. Dominique hired Caroline Gon to be head winemaker in 2006, and she is a wizard. The purity and cut of these wines rises well about the predictable Mâconnais style. Each wine express the vineyard and focuses citrus and melon flavors, with aromas of white flowers and honeysuckle. These will please even the most spoiled of oenophiles!
