Featured Wines

Whites

2012 Domaine Agape Pinot Blanc, “Expressions” - Alsace, France
Regularly$21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
The Pinot Blanc is harvested by hand from vines that are greater than 25 years old. The slow maturity of the grapes is ideal for the full expression of the honeyed notes of this understated varietal. This creamy, medium-bodied wine is dry and underscored by characteristically high acidity. Notes of apple and melon mingle pleasantly with the minerality so renowned from Alsatian terroir.

Reds

2011 Maray Pinot Noir Reserva - Limaris, Chile
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Located in the Limari Valley in Northern Chile, Maray’s young vineyards, which were first planted in the 1990s, are protected from the Pacific Ocean mist by the Talinay Hills. Influenced by sea breezes and the important climatic difference between sea and mountain, the area is semi-arid. The lack of rain helps the vines grow healthy and allows the grapes to be picked at the optimal time. Fresh and elegant, this cool climate Pinot Noir comes from deep limestone-clay soils. In the mouth it is rich and round, full of cherry and raspberry flavors, with a hint of vanilla. Full bodied with soft spiciness and balanced acidity, completed by great structure and soft tannins.

2010 Henri Bonnaud AOC Palette Rouge - Provence, France
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
The vineyard is located in Le Tholonet close to Aix-en-Provence. It is at the foot of the famous mount St. Victoire, which was immortalized by Cezanne. It benefits from a panoramic and wonderful view, a southern exposure and a chalky scree slope soil. This marriage makes it a unique and exceptional terroir. The color is deep purple. The nose is delicate and presents ripe red fruit aromas highlighted by herbaceous notes. The tasting reveals subtle notes of blackberry. This wine has a long length marked by a peppery finish.

2010 Chateau Trillol - Corbieres, France
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
Chateau Trillol is perched high up in the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 1,321ft in the AOC Corbieres winegrowing region. The wine is deep garnet in color, with rich, full flavors of blackcurrant, plum and spice, the wine is full-bodied and complex expressing well integrated barrique aging and hints of smoke and spice. It has a powerful structure with a long finish that lingers on the palette.

2011 Chateau Val de Roc Bordeaux Superieur - Bordeaux, France
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $21.74
From some of the finest wine-producing terroir in the world and the fruit of 30 year-old vines, Chateau Val de Roc Bordeaux Superieur provides an everyday drinkability to traditionally crafted vintages. Produced by the renowned Laurent Vallet (winemaker for Chateau Ausone). The aromas of sweet tobacco and earth reach for your nose first, and are supplemented by hints of red fruit. Blackcurrant and chocolate on the palate, with a soft, pleasing mouth feel, this Bordeaux Superieur exceeds expectations even in a vintage less well regarded than 2010.
